My first perfect paper

I had my first paper for school due this week.  I spent all Saturday evening writing it (when did I become such a dork?) and definitely worried it was awful.  Evidently when I go back to school as an adult, it's a lot harder because I actually care about getting As.  

I had no need to worry.  I knocked it out of the park with a 100.  Woot :)

Good idea

Saw this and it made me laugh.   Also gave me ideas...

I may have to start reminding myself to just be quiet.

She's so cute

Hung out with this cutie for a couple hours today.  Always fun. 

And I got paid in movie theatre popcorn.  Yumm.

Family time

I love spending the day with my family.

Feeding the homeless

We volunteered in Philly to feed the homeless as part of the end of our coat drive.

Here it is right before everyone started coming in.  We ended up serving over 150 people tonight.  Such an awesome and humbling experience.  

My life is really not bad at all.  I have nothing to to complain about.

So many coats!

I am the chair of our charitable fund at work.  We had a coat drive at work and the response was amazing!  The entire back of the van and the trunk area of my SUV are completely full of coats. So proud of our employees.

After days of rain

We finally got to see the sun again today.

These kids are adorable

I forgot I took this picture on sunday.  I was looking through my phone for something else and it made me smile.

Kicking ass

I decided to make today awesome.  So I put on Wonder Woman underoos (yeah...not pictured) and dinosaur socks!  Hear me ROAR!  :)

The family that puzzles together

Had brunch with my sister and parents today.  Then we spent the day doing a puzzle.  Awesomeness.

Women's marches

Saturday was a day of protest.  Women marches everywhere and it was amazing.

This was my favorite post about it.

Finally feeling almost normal

I've been really tired all week, and having a super busy week at work, and not really able to eat bc my stomach was still upset from being sick.

Yesterday I was finally able to go home early and take a nap, and get some cleaning done (my house was a disaster!), and I ate normal food and my stomach didn't rebel.

I think I'm finally almost back to normal.

Girls night!

Classes started!

Soo...I bit the bullet and decided to go back to school.  I'm getting an MS in Operations and Project Management.   I turned in my first homework assignment in almost 13 years and got a 93.

I'll take it :)

New blackout curtains!

I've had a rainbow picnic blanket hanging up over my window since I started my floors (back in November).  I finally started making my new curtains.  The two panels over the front window are blackout curtains (they were a lot tougher to sew than I thought they would be).  The other window panels are just lined with regular fabric, and aren't finished yet, but I think they should be easier.  

I do love them though.  So pretty!

Sunday was not my favorite day

I had a stomach virus and pretty much slept the whole day away (including on the floor of my bathroom).  I haven't been that sick in years.

However,  while I was sleeping:

Dallas lost and are out of the playoffs

Andy Reid was consistently Andy Reid

It was a good day for football.

We had a 1920 themed work party on Saturday

Headbands totally need to come back in fashion

I'm terrible at remembering to post things

For Christmas, my friend M saw these and thought of me.

I smile everytime I go into my kitchen and see them.  Love them!

All sorts of good things today!

In October, my company announced they were "relocating" one of PA facilities down to Richmond. This basically means of the 500ish employees, about 70 people would remain in PA, 100 would have the option to move to Richmond (although only expected about 50 to actually move), and the rest would be out of work.  

My location is not the one that is relocating, however, all salary positions were up for Assessment, so nobody had a clue if we still had a job.  Apparently, the assessments are complete and I still have a job.  And my stomach feels more settled for the first time in months.

Happy New Year to me :)

I got a card from RR wishing me good luck in my new endeavors that are starting Monday (more on that later).

The shrug I ordered for an event on Saturday was 'out for delivery' for about 5 days.  I was complaining to my sisters about it, and went to check the mail a few minutes later, and it was magically in my mailbox!  Ask and you receive?

Everything's coming up Milhouse...

My handwraps are less badass now

They dyed my knuckles and wrists turquoise on Monday.  They are still blue.  I'm just highly amused at this.

Not sure why this didn't post Monday. Or Tuesday when I tried again....

Wearing handwraps make me feel completely badass. 

The workout was good too!

It's a good day to do nothing

When it's cold outside,  I love to snuggle with Little O and catch up on my stupid TV shows.

Company for dinner

Laylan made me soup for dinner.  It was yummy.

And I got to hang out with this cutie pie.

It's finally the weekend. 

Best thing ever.

At least I'm comfortable

Another long, frustrating day today.  But I came home to new Lularoe leggings, cuddling with the dog, and StoveTop stuffing. 

I will never understand why I didn't like stuffing as a kid (it's bread and butter and seasonings...it's amazing!

This face

After an incredibly frustrating day at work.  I came home to this face just wanting to snuggle.

3 good things that happened today

1- went back to kickboxing for the first time in 3 weeks. (I always feel bad ass when I am putting on my hand wrap and gloves).

2- felt super cute with my new hair and awesome jeans at work today.

3- had a nice phone conversation with both my parents tonight and dad will be home in about 2 weeks. 

It's a good day :)

365 Days of Positivity

I feel like 2016 became synonymous with the "year of suck".  SO much focus on the bad things.

This year, I want to try and focus on the positive.  My goal is to post something positive every day for a year.  I missed the first day, so you get two posts today.  

Day 1:

I know I'm still going to make some bad decisions, let's just hope they are better than last year's :)
