Missing, Music, Maybe

So besides losing over a grand to someone else's gambling habit, things have been good the past few days. Colors are making me happier than usual, probably due to the looming gloom outside.  

I need a few songs, but I'll just save the list until I get money for iTunes.
*The Gambler - Kenny Rogers   (haha, just noticed how gambling became a theme before I knew it)
*Time After Time - Cyndi Lauper
There are more but I'm having a hard time remembering things today.

Adam got an Emily Dickinson book from the library in order to forge love notes :)  He's sweet.  But it reminded me of my faaaavorite piece of hers.  1078.  Best thing ever when you're grieving and looking for something simple and one person in the world who might understand you.  It's really still amazing to me how a few words in the right order can change your mood or an entire day.

Mother's Day is coming.  I don't know why that puts a weird look on my face, but it puts dreamy "MOM" tattoos on Remy, too.  :)

I think today I may have made progress in the way of choosing a career (finally).  I'm entertaining the idea of being a librarian.  The whole old lady stereotype just might let me have my cats back.  :)  But seriously, English is do-able and I just really enjoy being surrounded by books and knowledge and I kind of enjoy telling people to shut up, too.  <3

So glad work didn't last any longer than eight hours.  My brother came over to get his dresser after I got home.  We made a cheesecake, too.

It looks angry :)

While we waited for it to bake, we watched Brothers on Netflix.  We didn't stop there, though!  After just seeing Easy A for the first time, I've arrived at the conclusion that it is an awesome movie.  I hope Adam & I can be just like those parents.  :)

Love, Loco, Lawn Decor

Love Seeks to Understand.  Day 18 of The Love Dare!  Still going strong, I'm happy to say.  :-)

Remy was at home having alone time for part of the day while I was at class and having an awesome visit. When I got home we played dress up and I'm pleased with the results.

Now that we know the sun can't get us, we'll get on with this.

We need to spruce up the yard a bit.

Some things for the birds:

Lawn Ornament - Bird Bath - Concrete

 Any of these feeders will do.  :)

Birds Choice Recycled 11" x 10" Window Mount Platform Bird Feeder
I love window feeders!

We'll get one that won't allow this to happen...

S & K 16 Family Purple Martin Barn House
Purple Martin House

I'll add a second part to things on the yard wishlist.  Bed is calling.

It's been awhile.  Friday required more patience than I have, so I just won't bring that back up.

An Easter egg made by my favorite 2-year-old :)

 I worked yesterday (Collin came in, hid this behind his back and when he revealed it, he shouted "Happy Easter!"  I melted.)and that's about the time I started feeling sick.  It got worse today, but Remy's been such a good sport about it.  :)  She cuddles with me on the couch (and sticks her tongue out at me) even though I know she'd rather play.  Maybe she's aware of the fact that I'd love to have the energy and ability to stand long enough to play outside.

Speaking of playing, I'd like to get Remy some new (hopefully indestructible) toys.

I wish they all came in pink.

Kong Air
Water Bottle Toy

Kong Braidz

We need this most of all!

035585110110Since we've started already with Jim, we need these pre-named Mike and Leo toys!  She is a genius...or at least I aspire for her to be one.  :)

We just got this one in pink.

If this was pink, I would have ordered it today.

I've never heard of Jolly Balls before, but I think they're pretty sweet...I don't know that many dogs are bothered by the smell of rubber or that they prefer blueberry to rubber, but it's a nice idea.

While we're on the subject of toys, treats come to mind.  I wish Greenies weren't so expensive because they're awesome and Remy loves them.  This site has them much cheaper but I still can't really justify spending $17 on one bag of dog treats...

I just can't get enough of this shirt.  The model's happy look kind of makes me question it, but I want it anyways.
Cowl-Neck Hooded Pullover

Hello Kitty Epic Cute Girls T-Shirt
I'd just wear this for a PJ shirt, but I still need it.

If I don't have this one soon, I'll burst.  Everywhere.  On purpose.
Hello Kitty Pirate Face Girls T-Shirt
I'm getting a tattoo idea...

Hello Kitty Pirate Black And White Striped Tank Top

These socks! <3

Hello Kitty XOXO Nerd Nylon Knee-High Socks

I can't get enough and while it's ridiculous because I'm a grown woman, I'm unashamed.

Hello Kitty Face Arm Warmers

I don't even have arm warmers yet.  And yeah, summer's coming, but they're necessary.  It's not like winter won't come again.

I really need classic and/or 80s band tanks.  I want ZZ TOP and Poison and Metallica and a hundred other ones.  I don't care if they don't match those dreamy boat shoes I picked out...

Oh, and I really just wanna go to Rock USA, no matter how dorky it sounds.  I want to see Tom Petty.  Real bad.

And I need this.

Actually, I'd just like the entire PINK website.  That'd work.  But this sweatshirt and the luggage first.

To My 17-Year-Old Self
He will say he adores you.
Smile, but don't take it to heart.
He will say you are irresistible and he cherishes you.
He doesn't even know the meanings of those words.
He will tell you he only has time for you one day per week,
take that to heart and let it hurt - don't let him get away with it.
He will tell you you're beautiful, but you are last on  his priority list.
He just likes your body.
He will make you spaghetti for Valentine's Day and you don't have to pretend you like it.
He will hand you crappy smelling lotion, beaming with self-satisfaction.
Wrinkle your nose instead of saying you love it.
He will drag your heart through dirt and gravel and tuna with bananas.
And you will let him, but you shouldn't.
He will make you watch stupid movies and assume that when he gives you the chance to choose a movie to watch, it will be the same one his ex-girlfriend loved.
Slap him.  Or at least start an argument.  You teach people how to treat you.
He will tell you how amazing you are, time and time again,
but don't take his word for it.
He just likes hand-jobs on Sundays.

I'll work on that more next semester, assuming I get into the class I've been waiting a year for.

No Weed For These Girls

Remy and her new friend Jim

My knitted socks from raccoon

Her face is just too cute.  That's why she got strawberries today...And some other treats.

Wore my hoodie from MungoCrafts today!  Yay!  I love it.  Adam said he's glad I got it and it's cute.  How did I win a life with the best husband in the world?  :-D
And I want Beach House and Country Cottage now.  She's created a monster.  :)

Today was a (glorious) lazy day.

I missed posting yesterday, but we read about cherishing each other.  Check.  I also made some cheesy broccoli soup, but it was the lazy bag kind.

Oh yeah, and Remy looked adorable as always.

Today we read about giving in.  I feel like sometimes I could use some work in that area, but since we're still in the honeymoon stage and I'll do anything at all to keep my husband happy, we'll worry about that later.  :)

Made guacamole bruschetta today!  Yum!  :D  Here's the recipe.

Skulls and Stars Pillowcase Set in Pink
I'd also love the matching duvet cover and sheets.

Skull and Star Pirate Sheet Set - Full Size


I've got high hopes that my legs will be tan this summer.  If it works out the way I hope, all of these will look amazing against my gorgeous new skin...

Boat shoes


Summer is coming, despite how it looks outside...
I got my first pair last spring and I love them.  Now these are calling my name.
I need these
Gardening shoes???

On the subject of gardening, I need to find out if the wagon my brother and I had when we were little is still around somewhere.  I'll look pretty eccentric outside in purple shoes and a huge hat, pulling a wagon around the yard, but at least the vegetables will make it to the house without bruises!

Oh, and I want this, too.
And this:
Pixi - Nail Polish
Pixi - Nail Polish

Ah! This color!

I need a new hobby...but all of these just keep tugging at my heart.
POPbeauty - Nail Glam

I'd love to start hiking or something...I would require these to do that, though.  So as soon as I get them, I'll start.
