Three Things Thursday: My Dad

 3 things you love about your dad.


Only 3? I could write quite the list easily. My dad is amazing. Here are just 3 reasons why.

1.His honesty. 


 2. His ability to stay calm in any situation. I really don't think I've ever seen my dad lose it. He's always very calm and helps you feel calm and at ease with everything. I was nervous walking down the aisle at my wedding, he was avoiding crying so he talked to me the entire walk, just about random things. Just enough to make me feel comfortable and to calm our nerves.


3. The way he presents himself. He's out working in my yard right now, and if I knew he'd let me snap a pic I would, but he is always in clean clothes, and his face freshly shaved no matter what he is doing. I know it's not all about how you look, but the way you look definitely changes the way people treat you and the way you feel about yourself.



I'm gonna sneak in a fourth!

4. His love of being a grandpa. Seriously this guy is an amazing grandpa. A can't get enough of him when she sees him. He'll just hold her and take her wherever he goes. Love it.

What are a few of the things you love about your dad?

Monday Listicles. 10 things Beauty.

10 Beauty tools/products you can't live without.

1. Moisturizer. Helps start the look, even if that look is the "crazy tired mom" look.

2. Round brush. Love volume in my hair.
3. Foundation. Let's cover up the problems.
4. Mascara. Even if it's a no make up day, mascara is needed.
5. Some sort of hot tool (straightener, curling iron, wand)
6. Tweezers. Gotta always have 2 eyebrows.
7. Nail polish. Toes have to look cute.
8. A good strong hairspray. Don't need to waste my time styling my hair to have it fall flat!
9. Comb. Sometimes all it takes is a little teasing to get pretty hair.
10. A good face mask.

Three Things Thursday: Foods I hate

3 Things you hate to eat




Tomatoes.


So this one was easy, I'm allergic to tomatoes so it's not hard to avoid them, but really the few times people have snuck them onto my sandwiches even though they were told not to, I hate the taste.


Liver & Onions.




My mom used to make this at home quite often. Gag! The flavor isn't all that bad but it just smells and looks awful and the texture is gross. Just eww.

Squash.


There's something about the soft, mushy inside that just turns me away. I've tried. I just can't do it. 

What are a few foods you hate?

Listicle #100!!


First off, yay for 100 Listicles! Love the topic idea! "why listicles are great "

And in no particular order:

My 5 Reasons "why listicles are great!"

1. The amazing people you meet, I mean who doesn't absolutely LOVE Stasha? (Follow her on Instagram if you don't already, absolutely wonderful pictures EVERY time.

2. The thinking it makes you do. I mean really, sometimes I have no idea what to post about, figure I'll check out what Monday Listicles topic is and it gets my brain going. Helps break up writers block quite amazingly!

3. Listicles actually got me into making more lists at home. Making my life much better and easier.

4. The ability to post whenever you want & link up when you want during the week. Let's face it, I suck at remembering to link up to a linky party, I can get the post written and scheduled weeks ahead, but remembering to actually link up? Ha! 

5. They just are. I mean really, what more of an explanation do you need?

CONGRATS ON 100!!!

Three Things Thursday: Movies

Hosted By: {Myranda and Kristyn}

 3 of your favorite movies

1. Napoleon Dynamite! 

Lately as I'm writing my list of what to bring in my hospital bag, I've been thinking of all the things I had with A. Napoleon was one thing my mom & sister brought, we watched it a few times at the hospital, even the nurses and doctor stopped for a min every once in a while to laugh at something on this movie. Definitely lightens the mood.

2. My Best Friend's Wedding. 

I just love Julia Roberts, so it's more like this or any of her other movies I have to sit down and watch! 

3. The Other Guys


Another movie I could watch over and over again! My parents went and saw it in theaters and told the Mr. & I about it, so as soon as it was out we rented it and fell in love. It's just one of those stupid movies. I can't explain it! Love it!

It's Okay & Thankful Thursdays All in One.

I've got so much on my mind right now that this is a great day for a link up or two!

It's Okay to have piles of laundry waiting to be folded & put away.
      I'm thankful for a husband that is understanding when it comes to this hip pain that makes it near impossible to walk up and down the stairs to do laundry. So after work he comes home & carries baskets up and down for me so I only have to make a few trips here and there.

It's Okay to get emotional when I see my poor little yorkie Scout or think about the fact that he can only see out of one eye now.
      I'm thankful that it's only the one eye and that nothing else happened to him.

It's Okay that A and I are still catching up on sleep since our quick weekend vacation to Vegas.

     I'm thankful that we could make the quick 6 hour drive out to see my sister & her little family. I miss them so much. A had so much fun with her cousin, Aunt & Uncle!

It's Okay that I'm not looking forward to the BBQ with my in-laws this Saturday night.
     I'm thankful that my husband understands that it's hard for me to be around them. I'm so thankful that I have such a great family of my own to surround myself with and it just keeps growing.

It's Okay that I didn't take a ton of pictures while we were on vacation like I wanted to.
    I'm thankful for pictures like this one.

First Date Things to Avoid.


3 Things you should NEVER do on a first date

1. Hit a guy with a golf club. 
     (My friend Noddle still remembers the time I set his friend up with a friend of mine for prom & during our outing for them to meet, she hit him with the golf club while playing mini golf, oh how I wish I could say it could have gone better.)

2. Pick your nose.
     (Seriously guys, at least pretend to care about your appearance while you're out on a date, especially a first date. Because chances are someone will point it out & then your date is ruined.)

3. Be super touchy. 
    (Really, people? You don't know each other don't try and be all over your date. Chances are you'll going to get smacked in the face. Then if you try & follow her out to her car & try & open the car door after she's in and trying to leave, she might just hit you with the car door.)


Oh the many fun dating stories I have. Definitely have to share more of them sometime.
Have you ever been on an awful first date?

3 Things Thursday.





When I first saw today's 3 Things, I wasn't sure what the heck to put down. Then I remembered that The Mr. & I had actually talked about this at dinner once. We brought up random things that probably don't really surprise people but maybe more like something they wouldn't have guessed. 
So here it goes:

3 Things People Would Be Surprised to Know About Me

1. I have a tattoo.
 (Not a big deal right? Well it's shocking to most people that find out)

2. I had my nose pierced before I met the Mr.
(Got bored & took it out, was short lived.)

3. The Mr. & I met online. 
 (I know a lot of people have met online [YAY!] but, people seem surprised that we met when I was just 18 & he was 21. They always say "Oh I thought online stuff was just for 'old' people.") 

So there you have it, 3 random things you probably wouldn't guess about me if you were just meeting me!

What's something I wouldn't guess about you?

It's Okay.


Its Ok Thursdays

It's okay:


To have probably 100 pictures like this on my computer!
Sometimes she gets really cute pictures of herself!

That Bloglovin' finally got me back to reading & commenting on blogs, so much easier!

That I still haven't finished up A's 2 year old post.

That I still haven't gotten her 2 year old pictures from my (Future) SIL. I'll get them eventually right?

To have dishes over flowing in the sink every other day. How do they pile up so fast?!

To be counting down the days till we leave to Vegas to see my sister & her family!

To think you had more pictures to post with this post but nope.

Oh, how Pinteresting: Random.


I usually like to have some sort of theme to my posts, but today I'm just sharing some of the pins I've found & loved lately. 

Would love something like this in the girl's room.

Been trying to think of a way for A to do a canvas painting for our house, this looks like the perfect way!
via

I actually found a place that has these huge frames cut out already. Definitely NEED one (or 3) for my house!
via

I've decided I need more accessories in my life. Ones that I just love.
via

After hubs got his hair cut last night, I can't stop thinking about getting my hair trimmed. Love the curls in her hair! Also love the lighter color. My hair has never been an overall lighter color like this, definitely thinking about trying it.

Can't wait to see what you've pinned!
