Rachel has done it again

Rachel has decided to start blogging again. She did years ago, but it was a one time thing. This time though, I think she's sticking to it. So go check out my lil' sis's bloggity blog and show her some lovin'.

This week in bullets

  • Planning Monday's Memorial Day BBQ
  • I have WAY too many magazines to catch up in reading. Most of them cooking ones.
  • It's always good to have close relatives/boyfriends with working washing machines. Ours is broken until next Friday.
  • I finally found red lip stain that looks good on me!
  • The foxtail weeds are dying = the only allergies I ever get. Achoo
  • The snails never end.
  • I'm selling my old viola case Here
  • I currently smell like bacon
  • I still hate my phone
  • I bought mints at Bath and Body Works purely because the tin was cute. The "lemonade mints" as they call them, taste like dish soap. Tasty
  • My dad spoke in church last week, my sister and brother in law are speaking this week, I feel like they are after me.
  • When you don't eat for a full day, you realize how much time is spent eating.
  • Per above comment, Chinese made me pukingly sick. For the second time. I might actually consider not going back next time. Maybe.
  • Clair de Lune is my ringtone. I'm so classy I kill myself.
  • I understand the difference between my wants and needs yet choose to ignore it. Hence my debt never seems to get much smaller. I'm trying though. Institute this week was for ME.
  • OK, now the bacon smell is just getting annoying.
  • If you're running the wrong way in a race, you can choose at ANY moment to turn around. I'm turning around and about to book it to the finish line before I think of going the wrong way again.
  • I might be going on a 2 week trip to Canada to see glaciers. Yay!

Can't live with em', can't live without em'

Last week in an effort to clean up the house before my parents got home from their trip, I washed my parents bedding. Rolled up in that bedding was my cell phone. I am now the proud owner of a very clean, unusable cell phone.

I'm also the proud owner of a kyocera "jax" (that's japanese for lame) phone. Terrible screen resolution, no camera, no bluetooth, loud clickety buttons, and little kid colored pink. They lied on the website and called it and made it look like magenta.

Oh well, it was $10 (be quiet Steven) and I won't feel bad if this one gets washed because I paid so little for it.

Moral of this post: Don't wash your phone with the laundry.

When one wants to distract one's mind from life's problems, one surfs the world wide web.

Rachel loves nesting dolls. And if you know Rachel, you know her morbid way of thinking. Which is why you'd understand why she is dying for this print.

I love the colors and design of this room.

I think this is an ingenious idea for extra storage. Unless you live with someone who likes to slam doors. Then just make sure you don't put anything heavy on the shelf.

I'm going to be a bridesmaid in September for my friend Cami. We'll all be wearing the top left dress with shawls. I'm excited for her to get married!

I want twin babies and a kitten. What could be more perfect?

I never thought I would buy shot glasses. This idea changes my mind. Mini desserts!

I thought this looked intriguing. Before dehydrating apple slices, sprinkle them with Jello powder. Flavored apples!

I love these. Fabric mushrooms, cute!

I don't know if this would minimize breakfast cooking time or not. But I think it looks delish.

Good ol' Martha Stewart and her wedding cakes. I would use this for a children's birthday party though, not a wedding.

Again, unique, but better for a kid's party

I ADORE this guy :)

Get ready for an emo, dark, nonsensical "is-Becca-on-crack?" kind of post. Feel free to wait until the normal me comes back for posting next week.

I bought Chocolate cookies today. CHOCOLATE cookies.

Last night I ate 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips.

"I think We have a problem Houston. She's eating chocolate. Voluntarily AND repeatedly. Better get some reinforcements down there quick"

My mind is racing, my heart is thumping out of my chest like the time I don't want to remember.

A medicinal induced coma would be ideal right now. Then time would stand still and I wouldn't have to think. I want so many things, my way, NOW. Why can't my timing be in sync with God's? Why can't decisions be made for me? But then I'd just complain about it that way too.

I've butchered things up in life for myself that will always leave a scar and a memory to go with it. No matter how much Neosporin I put on them.

There is no moral, there is no point to all this. I'm just too lazy to pull out my depression journal. It's small, black and I only write in it a couple times a year.

In blood.

Right. That's just gross.


Ok, the crazies are coming out and the public is getting wind of the breakdown that's on it's way.

Time to hide under my covers and sleep away the crazies.

Curse you cosmetics!

I have a weakness. This weakness involves buying things that claim to make me pretty.
BUT they were all on sale and I didn't spend more than $9 TOTAL, so it's not that bad, right?
I'm a girl, what can I say? Avon just has amazing deals sometimes, PLUS free shipping? I can't contain myself.

My makeup collection may or may not be this big. I'll let you decide.

On another note, I'm applying to a million jobs again. Still trying for a full time job somewhere with benefits. Loverly I tell you what.

Compliments of my parents last trip, I now am the proud owner of four inch memory foam mattress topper. It's pure heaven to sleep on. Speaking of, I'm going to do that right now. G'night!

Yay for lousy cell phone camera pictures!

My new glasses! It's been about 3 years since my last eye exam and my prescription has changed enough that I need new lenses. Woooooo. Steadily declining eyesight. That's something I'm ALWAYS striving for! You know me!


I'll be getting contacts as well because I don't get tension headaches with contacts. Amazingly enough they now make a disposable contact lense for my eyes that isn't 1/2" thick. There goes another $200/year that I don't have. Joy

This is what time I went to bed the other night. this is my dad's alarm clock. Swanky. I'm sleeping in my parents room while they're on their trip to Minneapolis. My dad has a work seminar there. I have to sleep upstairs so I can hear the dogs when they need to go out EVERY HALF HOUR OF THE STINKING NIGHT! Who poops three time a night? Huh? Not anyone normal, but then again, my dogs have never been normal.

95% of the time, you will find this specimen in my purse. A half eaten bag of cheeto fries clasped shut with a bobby pin. Bobby pins can do anything. They should run for president, they'd probably do better than Obama.

lovely Bleeding hearts in my garden. "Technically" it's Rachel's plant, but seeing how she watered it ONCE last year and the thing is living because of ME, I'd say it's mine. Hmm, a thought just occurred. This would be the perfect plant to give to someone who is going through a breakup. Bleeding hearts, get it?

Don't tell my dad, but I let Ace sleep next to me at night. He gets lonely.

Always trim your toenails straight across to prevent ingrowns, never wear the same pair of shoes two days in a row to prevent athletes foot, Wear orthotics for injury prevention, and pray you have United Health care for health insurance. They pay for everything.

I think I've been at work too long.

Signing off now.....

Oh, I didn't get the job I applied for at IHC. Boo.
*walks off eating hot cheetos..........*
