What I'm loving Wednesday...

Keeping this one simple.

1.  My Chromecast.  I had looked into purchasing a Chromecast months ago to stream Netflix and had kinda forgotten about it,  I had been using my Wii before and when I moved I couldn't figure out how to get it to connect to wifi again and it's just a pain so I remembered the Chromecast and ordered it. So glad I did!

2.  1989. T Swift's new album. Yes I went there. I have come to terms with the fact that I really do love me some T Swift.  You probs won't find me front row at her next concert but I always buy her albums and look forward to the next so theres that. I was skeptical about this one at first but I'm really liking it.

3.  Young Living essential oils.  I love these essential oils.  They have really helped with my sinus and allergy problems and are great to diffuse around the house to get the house to smelling good.  So many different great uses for them.

4.  Fall and everything about it.   photo sig-2.jpg

Life Lately

It's been almost 4 months since I left my job, apartment, friends and abandoned this blog.  Honestly I almost deleted it and didn't plan to look back but I remembered how I really do enjoy blogging and shouldn't make permanent decisions based on temporary feelings.

It's been a trip but I managed to find my old self again and will be back around.

What have I been up to is the question I have been asked the most lately and I won't bore you with every detail from the past 4 months, but while I have been putting off applying for new jobs in the chance I would get an interview and I might come off as an anxiety ridden basket case (and no one hires those)  I have really just been catching up on life.  I have gotten in lots of family time, I have loved getting to spend so much time with BabyGirl and baby H with some travel and good quality friend time in between and I might have even had a Tinder account for about 45 mins, but thats a story for another time.

So here is life lately through pictures.

Plenty of dress up, lunch dates and playtime.

My Big got married.

Treat yourself

I have always been one to carry a camera and take lots of pictures. Now by no means am I a photographer and I may have had the worst pictures in my photography class in college but I still love taking lots of pictures.  

I even hoarded a bunch of scrapbooking supplies with plans to sometime get around to scrapbooking and that hasn't happened yet.  

A few years ago I came across Shutterfly. I have used Shutterfly numerous times for gifts.  I love giving personalized gifts and found Shutterfly books to be perfect for that.

Anyway recently I was introduced to Treat. Treat is a new greeting card website by Shutterfly.  Treat has every kind of greeting/stationary and thank you card you can think of.

Which is perfect because I love sending cards and with my recent move I am looking forward to sending many of my friends and old coworkers cards to keep in touch.  Treat is also a great place to go to find cards for engagement and wedding congratulations, baby announcements, or anything else you may think would be fun to send a card for.

Here are two of the Treat cards I made for two of my besties.

You can make your own card and add pictures or personalize a pre-made card from one of their many categories.

You can even pay for postage and Treat will mail your cards for you.

Remember that time?

I told myself I would blog like everyday when I quit my job and well what do you know I have blogged maybe twice since I became a stay at home daughter.

I have been catching up on the blog world but haven't quite hit publish as much as I would like.

When you are not reporting to a place of employment everyday sometimes you forget what day it is.

Let me tell you being a stay at home daughter isn't all about laying on the couch eating Bon Bons.  (I'm not sure what a Bon Bon actually is?)  I don't even watch much TV now even though my last post I think was about TV.

Honestly most my days are spent chasing a two year old, playing with my niece, hanging out with my mom and trying this whole overcoming this anxiety battle the natural way, maybe I will end up sharing more about that later, but for now just popping in to say I am still here and will be back.  This thing called life just sometimes keeps you busy.

What are all the cool new jams?

So I really can't blame my lack of blogging on having a job anymore.  Since I am currently a stay at home daughter I have had some time to catch up on my TV shows and E! News, and learned a few things along the way.

For starters I don't nor have I ever found Brad Pitt and Angelina brother kissing Jolie to be the Sexiest Couple.  Jen had him when he was at his best and I don't get the appeal to Angelina.  So no I don't care or find it a surprise that after 15 kids they are finally getting married.

When a celeb instagrams a photo it like means a lot.

The floral nail trend is not cute.

No matter how ridiculous I find the Kardashians I will always get sucked into watching. Let's be honest it's mainly for Scott though. 

The bachelorette will always end up annoying me.  I don't think I will ever make it through a whole season and really though who gets engaged after dating only a few months? Yeah that will last.

People actually get surgery to have better looking selfies.  

Bab's and Janelle keep me coming back for more Teen Mom.

Bye Felicia.

I quit my job Friday.
How else would I fulfill my dreams of being a stay at home daughter? 
Kidding. Kinda.

I had been unhappy for a while but was planning on waiting for my lease to end and to possibly find a new job first.
Well it ended up not quite playing out like that.

I have talked about on here how I just got off of my anxiety meds a few months ago and had been doing great but all of sudden my anxiety came back in full force.
 When I say anxiety I don't mean I was kinda nervous about everything I mean, can't sleep, can't eat, stomach is in knots, sick feeling to your stomach, random crying outbursts just not real fun stuff. It was making me miserable.

 I tried to hang in there and hold it together until the end of July but that just wasn't happening.
After talking with my family of some of my close friends I decided it would be best for me to get the heck out dodge and go back home. (*I actually don't know what or where dodge is but I heard it before and it seemed fitting.)
I needed to be back with my family and get back to my normal self.
So Friday that is exactly what I did.
I am ready for something new and look forward to the new opportunities coming up.
