Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks
Nothingness

daily updates, random talking... whatever I feel like talking about when I have nothing to talk about.

Tech at the Turn of the Century: Deep Talks

It’s Tuesday and I’ve got nothing.

Typically when people have nothing to say...they don’t say anything.

It only seems wise and appropriate.

I, however, decide to scramble together a thoughtful (thoughtful? Ha! Who are we kidding?) post simply because

I HAVE TO POST ON TUESDAY.

Which is hilarious.

I crack myself up.

You know, pretty much 99% of my posts back I’m the early days were based on absolutely nothing. I’d sit in front of the computer with nothing to say and manage to cover newlywed antics we all could relate to.

And side note, do any of us sit in front of the computer to post anymore? I sit in front of a computer all.day.long. at work, but all my blog and “fun” stuff is done on my phone or iPad.

Hence all the weird autocorrects or typos I never catch until after I publish.

Sorry about that.

Want to know something that makes me feel super old?

When Will and I were first married (and dirt poor), we didn’t have our own computer.

I was still in school, so I had to do all my homework and papers at my parent’s house or the school library.

Do people even go to the library to use the computers anymore?

I have no idea.

Since we’re talking tech stuff and feeling old, I also remember the first text message I ever got in my life.

Yes, there was a time when texts didn’t exist, kids.

I was sitting in class and Will sent me one. I don’t even remember what it said. All I can remember was staring at the screen- the black Nokia screen that everyone had back in 2003-thinking “What in the what is this?! It’s like an email message on my phone… From my fiancΓ©!” πŸ˜‚

Dying.

So yeah, who says I don’t have anything meaningful to share today?! We just discussed technology at the turn of the century.

Brilliant.

Do you guys like these random-y posts? I often have. I idea what to share on Tuesdays, and if you have any ideas, I’m all ears! smile

(Tuesday) Thursday Things

Technically today is “Tuesday Things,” but since I usually post these on Thursdays, I had to hold true.

Plus Thursday Things just sounds better, yes?

As mentioned, we rented a professional steam vacuum last weekend and did an overhaul on our carpets.

Oh.my.stars.

All the brown water.

Yikes!

I like to think I keep our house tidy, but steam cleaning the carpets did a number on me. Will said pretty much everyone’s carpets are like that (unless they steam clean a lot!), but it didn’t make me feel better.

Remember the Everybody Loves Raymond when Debra buys one for her house and there’s tons of dirty water, but when they do Marie’s carpet it’s completely clear water? πŸ˜‚

Boz caught a cookie Layla dropped on the floor last weekend and was bouncing off the walls soon thereafter.

He was so funny, and so happy! He sat on Will’s lap with this giant happy smile on his face, with arms swaying. Watch this. Hilarious!

Knockout!
One of the greatest boxing fights in recent history is this weekend.

Will and I don ‘t follow boxing, but who doesn’t know the success of Mayweather and Pacquiao?

We planned on getting the fight… And then found out it’s $100! For real.

If you’re a big boxing fan I could see it, but since we’re amateurs… Eh…

The Earth is shaking
Things sure are moving and shaking around here!

Did you know Oklahoma is on a fault line? True story.

We been having an increase in earthquakes over the last couple of years, and last weekend we had six earthquakes in the metro!

I am also praying for those in Nepal. What an awful catastrophe. My heart goes out to them.

More and more sings of the times on the eschatological clock.

At your service
Will and I started serving at church, and my heart hasn’t felt this full in a long time.

I feel serving is such a huge component in drawing near to God, and it was one missing in my life. It is such a blessing to serve Jesus!

What makes it even better is that my parents are serving alongside us, so it’s an extra special treat. Wee!

Things we wish were not forever etched in pictures

I found a host of horrifying pictures from my childhood recently.

Weekend things

Guys, I went through a four year phase of complete ugly. It was awful. My sister and I did manage to have a laugh at our expense. Good times.

I almost shared one for today’s TBT… But they’re just that embarrsssing.

Instead...
the girls in vallderosa
Here’s one of me and P in Vallderosa.

I want to go back!

Still dying over Chickfila coffee.
We had new tires put on the old Honda last weekend and I made Will take me there while we waited.

Seriously. Their coffee is ridiculous in the best possible way.

That’s all for today. Anything you care to share?

Thursday Things, 23 April 2015

It’s Arts Festival week here in OKC.

Which means I ate like complete junk the day I visited.

The art is fantastic, trust me.

However, I only spend money on the food.

I know.

Go ahead and judge.

Mr. Clean
Will and I are spring cleaning this weekend! Wee!

Will volunteered to steam vac our carpets.

Twice.

And then I’ll be doing my usual once over on the house.

We’re also garage sale prepping.

I have a feeling I’ll end up preoccupied helping him move furniture and an assortment of other fun chores unrelated to my actual once over.

I love missing work to do more work. Ha!

The Land Before Time

Im having blog troubles, ya’ll.

If my blog were a person it would be Betty White...except totally uncool.

It’s old. Real old.

I’m struggling with what to do about the ancientness of this space for many reasons.

For the foreseeable future things are going to stay the same, but trust me, I know you probably feel like you’re in a time warp anytime you stop by.

Let’s make it a thing for now.

A cool, hip, seasoned, retro-chic, Betty White-esque thing.

Fuller House
Am I the only one sort of on the fence about Full House coming back?

Don’t get me wrong, I loved, totally loved, the show growing up.

In fact, I could probably sing the theme song scene now!

But, I’m kinda worried it will be a let down. You know the saying, “you can never go home”?

Like that. But for TV.

Regardless, I’m going to watch. I mean, it’s Full House!

How I Know I Live in Oklahoma
Because I make casseroles on a somewhat consistent basis.

I think quintessential casseroles evolved out of southern and Midwestern kitchens decades ago, and they’re still serving them up to their children’s children’s children to this very day.

Without any modifications whatsoever.

If you ever go to a potluck here, you can guarantee 75% of the dishes are going to be casseroles.

The other 25% are desserts.

Anyway, I made a winner last night and am going to force it upon you. Whether you live in Connecticut, California, or any other non-casserole state. Haha

This picture was taken ten years ago

Qatar 2005

TEN!

We went to Qatar to renew my visitors visa.

Sometimes it feels just like yesterday.

Rake Up the Makeup
Here’s my plug to remind you to send any products my way if you’re thinking about doing so! The more the merrier. ❀️ Please just shoot me a note- blove at the blovelife dot com!

That’s all the randomness for today. Check in tomorrow sweets!

I’m off to load the steam vac and get things going!

Thursday Things, 16 April 15

My Ipsy came in Monday. 

It was like a birthday present to myself.

Do you get tired of me telling you how great all the stuff inside is?

I get it.

I’m sorry.

Not gonna lie, though, this one was yet another winner.

I’m just applied the perfume rollerball that was in the bag and am currently inhaling my wrist. Fantastic.

We’ll discuss next Thursday.

I’ve made roasted asparagus with every.single.meal I’ve prepared at home

For the last two weeks.

Real life.

Easter brunch goodness

I’ve said it a million times, I make things I like for days and weeks on end and then forget about them for like the next two years.

Please don’t let me forget about my asparagus.

Thanks.

The Garage Sale

Yes, the garage sale, as if it were an epic sale of all sales.

I think my mom is going to have a garage sale, and Will and I are going to hook on and make it a joint one.

I think I’m completely underestimating the level of headache that’s going to come from trying to identify, sort, tag, and sell all our stuff.

We should have started waaaay earlier.

Plus Will and I have completely different opinions on keep versus sell. 

I’ve already told him we’re going to make it a like a game. We each get veto power on a certain amount of items. We also get a certain amount of items that are off the table in terms of keeping or selling.

Perhaps that will help keep us motivated and on track.

Probably not.

Workweek Hustle

As in the workweek hustle Fitbit challenge.

Guys, some of these people get fierce with this challenge.

Purposely booking the far away conference rooms so we can’t use them and are stuck using the ones closer to our own desks.

Others faking injury so we think they’re out of the game only to be completely shocked when they sync their steps and see they’ve been logging marathon like numbers.

Like, I kind of think some see how far behind they are and literally walk in place in the middle of their living room until the very second the challenge ends just to make sure they’re declared the winner.

(Mostly) for real.

It makes for awkward water cooler talk…

Sometimes you’re the windshield

Sometimes you’re the bug.

I was the bug.

My birthday didn’t start out so wonderfully.

An asteroid came careening out of he sky and forcefully struck my windshield Tuesday morning.

The result? A giant crack. With several other peripheral knicks and cracks (seriously- what hit me!?).  Apparently Will thinks they’re too deep to fix with a quick call to Safe Lite.

That means we’ll have to gift ourselves a new windshield! Woo hoo! What I’ve always wanted.

It definitely did not start my day off on the right foot.

The breakup

Here goes (yet another) a crazy confession:

I totally love the Air One morning radio show hosts Eric and Mandy.

They have this beautiful friendly chemistry and humor and are so relatable.

Love.

So when Eric left the show a few months ago, I was sad! They get me to work and I always enjoy their banter with each passing mile.

Eric can’t leave! What’s Eric without Eric AND Mandy!?

In case you’re wondering, he’s just, Eric. Ha!

Anyway, this week Mandy announced her departure from the morning slot and that she is moving into the mid morning show instead.

The show I don’t listen to because I’m already at work.

Not gonna lie, I’m sad and am going to miss that goofy bird on my commute to work.

I’m sure the new guys will be ok, but they’re no Eric and Mandy. smile

What’s up, cupcake?
After the windshield incident and a crazy day at work, I was more than ready to be home and do absolutely nothing.

Except, that wasn’t the plan! I was home long enough to change clothes and head to the church for an event.

We rode with my parents and they were so sweet and surprised me with six beautiful giant assorted cupcakes.

What's up cupcake?

My favorite in OKC. 

Thankfully we got home a little early and I treated myself to one two.

What's up cupcake?

Hey, it doesn’t count on your birthday!

That’s it for today. Anything you care to share? 

Thursday Things, 9 April 2015

Last Saturday I got to meet Marisa in person!

>Proof we met in real life. <img src=">

When I found out she was going to be in Oklahoma I jumped at the chance to meet (because when is anyone ever in Oklahoma that doesn’t already live here!?).

We’ve been friends since The Nest days, so it was exciting to actually meet after all these years.

We had breakfast at Chick-Fil-A and talked for hours. It’s funny how natural conversation can come even from only knowing someone online. It was like we were old friends catching up, and I suppose that’s what we are!

Around the Corner
My big 32nd is right around the corner.

When did I get so old and grownup!?

Will’s parents came up to celebrate early and left me with a big, fat strawberry cake with vanilla frosting.

Early birthday cake

It’s made with fresh strawberries and diet sprite instead of oil and eggs (at my request. I’m the only person crazy enough to want that for their birthday cake) so it’s healthy, right?

I’ll be hanging out with Will and my parents this weekend, so more celebration to follow.

And by celebration, I mean unhealthy food. Ha!

In honor of 32...
I think we need a TBT pic today.

This one comes courtesy of my sweet 16.

Brittny checking out the food for her sweet 16 party

Remember the days when we used to go to tanning beds religiously and not worry about skin cancer?

Good times (except not).

My parents threw me a surprise party. Such a kind act. Maybe I’ll tell you that story one day.

There’s always a story.

Couch-less Potatoes
Sooo, we bought a couple couches last year to replace the hand me downs my parents graciously gave us when we moved back from Kuwait.

Actually, we kept the love seat, but got rid of the couch.

It was kind of a sad day. Will and I spent a lot of quality (haha) time watching tv and napping on that couch, even before we got married!

I was a little sad to see it go.

The Littles were sad too. We don’t let them get on the leather furniture, but they had free reign on the old couches, so they were sad to see them gone, too!

So yeah. Kind of the end of an era.

Road Tripping
With all these trips with Will’s parents to check out RVs, I’m kind of read to be old enough to retire and explore the good old U S of A too!

More RV fun with the inlaws

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to fast forward life. However, I now totally get the appeal of buying a pull behind and seeing the nation.

Totally down for that in 2035.

Spring Cleaning
The office is done!

Now onto our bedroom closet.

It’s long overdue.

That’s our project for a few hours this weekend.

The fun of being an adult.

Fanning the Flames

I almost lost my mind last weekend at the gym.

I was the only one in the cardio section. I didn’t plan on washing my hair that day, so I didn’t want to completely sweat buckets.

As such, I turned on the fan and hopped on the elliptical.

Unspoken gym etiquette, at least at my gym, is that most people ask those already in the cardio room if they’d be agreeable to the fan being turned off.

Never just turning it off.

Ten minutes into my workout, a kid came into the room, turned off the fan, and started running on the treadmill right in front of me.

I almost lost my mind.

I usually don’t get bothered by that sort of thing… But I did that day!

“Do you want to blow dry all the sweat out of my hair since you decided to turn the fan off!?!!” I wanted to scream. ask kindly.

He was watching SpongeBob Squarepants, which only made me madder.

Which made me workout harder.

Which made me sweat all the more.

Which defeated the purpose of trying not to sweat too much.

Frustrating.

And yes, I did end up washing my hair.

That’s it for today, sweets! Check in tomorrow!

Peachy Keen
My mom visited my grandparents last week and brought home the most out of this world homemade peach preserves.

I’m dead over this stuff.

I got a small little glass jar, and then a big mason jar. The little glass jar is completely empty. With the exception of a tablespoon my dad had, I killed the entire jar on my own.

I suppose I should have just taken a picture of a spoon in the jar for my Tuesday post?

Since we’re telling secrets about junk food...

I had french fries for lunch Monday.

Real life.

And yes, I did take a picture for posterity. You’ll see it next Tuesday.

We took a quick trip to El Reno, Oklahoma. El Reno is famous for their onion burgers and has been highlighted on national TV.

I didn’t have any healthy options (none at all). Sometimes I’ll forgo eating until later, but I was famished and desperate times call for desperate measures.

We cleaned the office

I shared pictures of our empty office on Monday, but what you did not see was the before state.

It was awful.

With lots of hard work and lots and lots of shredding (so much shredding!), the office is actually serving its full purpose.
Office overhaul

It needs some decorations, but I’m not too worried about that right now. I’m just thankful it’s not covered in stacks of paper and junk!

Oh the treasures we found…

I am so incredibly pumped for Easter weekend!

For lots of reasons.

First, I’ve never worked anywhere that had Good Friday off, so tomorrow will be a special treat.

Two, I have lots of things planned.

Normally that would stress me out a little, but I’m pacing myself and am going to try my best not to freak out if the house isn’t perfect or if the laundry doesn’t get done.

Three, I’m excited about multiple family and friends outings.

Will’s family on Friday, a special friend on Saturday, and brunch with my family Sunday. Wee!

Four, Easter brunch. I pretty much need to plan my entire macro and caloric needs around this meal. You’d die over the stuff we’re making.

Oh, and Easter candy.

It’s pretty much the best candy EVER. 

White Reece’s eggs? Dead.

Cadbury chocolate? Dead.

The Cadbury crunchy chocolate eggs? Dead.

Starburst jelly beans? Dead.

Pretty much all the Easter candy.

Five, early Easter service.

We usually go on Saturday to free up space for big Sunday crowds and I’m looking forward to it.

So yeah, yay Easter weekend!

The Break-up

I broke up with my phone and social media over Lent and it was the best.decision.ever.

There were a few important things I missed, like details about our friend in the hospital, but God intervened without Facebook (gasp 😊) and we found out anyway.

It was such a nice break and quieted my mind. 

April Fools

Did you prank anyone?

I’m old and boring and did not fool anyone this year.

My favorite one was when P took a pregnancy test for me when she was pregnant with Layla so I could fool Will.

Good times.

April Showers

We had our first bout of bad weather last week and thankfully came through unscathed.

I totally wish we could fast forward from March to June and skip storm season. I hate it!

Thankfully we have a storm shelter I intend to overuse.

Will, God love him, is the guy standing outside watching everything roll in at a distance. I pretty much have to force him in there with me.

Crazy.

Let’s end on a happy note

Check out Rocky.
Dad&#x27;s little helper. That face! πŸ˜‚

That face.πŸ˜‚

He looks so happy, right?

Will did some major dirt work in our yard a few weeks ago and snapped this picture of Rocky helping.

I love that dog.

That’s it for now! Check in tomorrow for Good Friday. 

Thursday Things, 19 March 2015

Getting Fresh
I cannot even express to you how much I enjoy the Aerogarden.

Plant progress
As geeky as it sounds, I think I’m going to devote an entire post to it soon.

Oddly enough, Will likes it as much as I do.

He doesn’t enjoy the fresh herbs as much, but he really enjoys watching it grow and harvesting it.

My little herb farmer, adorable.

Anyway, we love it so much we bought a second one this weekend so Will can grow his own jalepenos.

Real life.

So basically we will never need to use lights in the kitchen or living room area ever again. Ha!

Bracketology

It’s that time again.

Did you do your bracket?

Mine is all done and ready for another thrashing.

I wish I could tell you I was the one killing it, but let’s be real here, I think we both know who’s actually killing it.

I have no idea why I keep coming back year after year, but I do.

Hopefully I chose wisely this year!

Another Anniversary

Tuesday marked my one year work anniversary.

In some ways it feels like yesterday, but in others it feels like and eternity.

I’m thankful to work for such a wonderful company. It is a fantastic place, and I’m blessed.

On to year two!

Pancaked

Guys, I’m craving cake batter pancakes like crazy!

Like Crazy!

Have you ever made them?

Please tell me you have.

If you haven’t, it means I will be obligated to make them and post them on my blog so you can share in this deliciousness.

What a conflict.

Anyway, this craving has lingered for months, but I haven’t scratched the itch.

Scratched the itch.

Let’s not say that again.

Especially in reference to food.

For some silly reason, if I’m going to do a big fat “cheat meal,” cake batter pancakes doesnt seem awful enough.

Trust me, I realize that’s ridiculous, but for some reason pizza, nachos, or multiple donut holes seem more indulgent.

I make no sense.

Anyway, I’m afraid I’m going to have to scratch that itch (sorry) very soon.

City Color Lip Stain

I got this glossy stain in last month’s Ipsy and am kind of going crazy over it.

It goes on like a creamy gloss and eventually dries into a nice, matte stain. The color is beautiful and lasts
for hours.

For my Bible History/End Times Buffs

Prepare to have your mind blown. 
It’s an hour long, but an easy listen during your commute or on a walk.

(Oh- and you don’t have to watch it as a video. You can press play, put your phone in “sleep mode” and turn it on and it will play like a podcast)

You may not agree with everything, and he’s certainly not dogmatic about his position (merely offering deep food for thought based on his studies), but I found it very interesting.

The RV Show

As Will’s parents inch closer to retirement, they’re interested in buying an RV and exploring the good old U S of A!

They’ve been looking for awhile now, and came up to visit and go to the OKC show last weekend.

Some of those things can be very impressive and cost as much as a house!

RV-ing

Will and I had lots of fun looking and exploring all the different options.

Maybe one day when Will and I are older, we’ll explore the nation like that too! πŸ‘΄πŸ‘΅

I think a part of Will died yesterday.

My sweet Will.

I’ve told you a million times but I’ll tell you again- he’s kountry through and through. 
So when texted yesterday morning and told him Lecrae is coming to town this spring, he never responded back.

I think he’s politely saying no, but we both know I’ll be dragging him along with me unless I can find someone else who will graciously step in. smile

That’s all for today! Check in tomorrow. 

Things I’m Loving Lately

Chick-Fil-A Iced Coffee

Oh.my.goodness.

Officially dead now.

If you have an extra 150 calories for a treat and aren’t afraid of a little dairy, leave wherever you are, and go buy a medium Chick-Fil-A iced coffee NOW!!

Will and I went there for breakfast last weekend (they have good oatmeal for a fast food joint!) and they were giving these away for free.

Dead.

So yeah. Super smart marketing tactic on their part, because I’ll definitely be coming back for more.

Mary Kay Translucent Powder
I’ve used lots of MK powders over the years, but bought their translucent powder for the first time ever last month (yes, even after being a consultant for a decade).

For years, I’ve worn their mineral powder, but recently switched to their liquid foundation. Their translucent powder does such a good job of keeping everything intact the whole day.

No creasing, no melting.

I’m All Yours- Crystal Nicole & The Eternal Jam Machine

I am all about this song right now. It’s got a good beat for cardio, but also a little hip hop for when I’m in the weight room.

Things

Suave Moroccan Infusion Dry Shampoo

Suave

I’ve been using Suave dry shampoo for years. The store was out of Suave Keratin, so I went with the Moroccan kind instead.

It seems to work just like the other type, but smells lovely! The other kind does, too, but this was a nice change of pace and seems to have a stronger scent.

Scorpion
I mentioned this in last week’s Thursday Things, but I also have to mention it as a new recent “like.”

During our snow days last weekend, we binge watched over half the season!

Snacks ala Kindergarten

For real.

I don’t know what’s going on, but if I’m wrong, I don’t want to be right.

Celery with (natural) peanut butter and rasins-also known as “ants on a log” to kids… And apparently adults who are kids at heart,

Peanut butter and jelly (hey it’s on healthy, grainy wheat bread, so it’s a little grown up, right?),

And chocolate (almond) milk

So yeah. More like kid snacks meet a grown up’s need to make them somewhat heathieir. Haha

iPhone 6+

During last weekend’s forever long AT&T outing (amidst our snow storm), we changed our phone plan, and Will got a new phone.

I’m not into having a mini computer as my phone (haha), but they’re definitely cool. I love the gold ones!

Quiet

I have completely disconnected from all social media, including blogs (except my own smile ) and intend to keep it that way until the first weekend in April.

I’m trying to declutter my mind right now, and I’m praying its fruitful.

I thought I might go crazy, but it’s actually been nice. So much easier to be intentional and present.

That’s it for today, dearies. Anything you’re loving?

Thursday Things, 12 Feb 15

The Aerogarden is doing fantastically.

Mint is a late bloomer

Except the blasted mint.

To say it’s a late bloomer would be an understatement.

It’s pretty much the herb I wanted most, too.

Figures as much.

Last weekend I thought I might just up and die right there at the gym for all the patrons to see.

I completed a good resistance workout, and then decided to quickly hit the elliptical.

I usually like to gradually increase the crossramp and really work to keep my heart rate up.

About 20 minutes in, I was dripping in sweat, and I was working double time.

Turns out I was increasing the resistance instead of the crossramp. Ha

Speaking of workouts, last weekend Will and I went to the park to enjoy the warmer weather.

Long talks at the park (and a secret selfie I took of the mister 😊)

We sat and talked and watched the kids playing.

Will looked over at me and asked, “Remember when we were kids and running was actually something we did for fun?”

πŸ˜‚

Totally killed me.

I remember the days when I was a kid and would run just because it was something fun.

While I have my moments, I can pretty much say I no longer consider running “something fun to do.”

Soo what are you doing for Valentine’s Day?

Do you love it? Hate it? Do tell.

Will and I aren’t huge celebrators, but we do acknowledge the day.

We don’t get crazy with gifts, either. Although, my sneaky husband did decide to buy me the rest of our bedding accessories for the new bedspread we bought last year. It wasn’t cheap and I was very touched by his thoughtfulness!

He also surprised me with the first season of The Americans. Anyone watch this?

My parents love it, and since it’s set in the 80s, I kind of figured I would too.

So yeah.

We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, but apparently Will forgot.

As for going out on Valentine’s Day, don’t enjoy crowds or waiting forever at places in our old age, so we will cozy up on the couch Saturday night and let you guys have a night on the town without old fogeys cramping your style. smile

It only seemed right that today’s TBT pic be Valentine’s Day related.

Brittny-Valentines day OU cake-2005

This was our first married Valentine’s Day in 2005.

Look at that baby face!

I bought Will a cute Valentine cake as well as some red OU oakleys.

Which, surprisingly, he didn’t like because they fit weird (according to him).

Yes, I still remember.

And yes, it’s really me in that picture.

Remember that one time we all got crazy and dyed our hair RED!?!

Yeah…

In this week’s “Food Lately” post, I failed to mention the amount of peanut butter and jelly toast I’ve been eating.

It’s out of control, y’all.

That’s it for now.  I sure hope you’ll check in tomorrow.

Anything you care to share?

Thursday Things, 4 Feb 15

***
Our minds do funny things sometimes.

Well, mine does anyway.

For example, the other day I told Will my, “hungry was tummy.”

Two things-

1. Yes, I really did say that.

And

2. Yes, I really did say that.

Posh Paper

Please tell me you remember when pink toilet paper used to be a thing?

I’m not making this up, guys.

It was a real thing, I promise!

Will had no idea they used to manufacture such beautifulness (well… If you consider TP beautiful).

Out of curiosity last week, I looked to see if anyone still makes it.

You can pick up 32 rolls for a meager $50. Ha!

That seems just a bit too exorbitant for something like toilet paper.

There goes my hope of having pink toilet paper in all the bathrooms.

I’m sure Will is quite relieved I’m over this… For now.

Why does NBC hate me!?

Parenthood is officially over.

I was sad to see it go. I feel like there are no shows about real life on prime time TV these days. They’re all cop shows, crime investigation shows, medical shows, and “reality” TV.

I liked Parenthood because I felt like I knew the cast. They were real, regular people living a life I could relate to, to some degree.

So yeah. No more.

I was thankful for how the show ended. They did a good job of flashing forward a couple years so I (haha, yes, me and only me) could see how they turned out.

Gosh I’m really sad sometimes. But hey- if you watched the show, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

The Economics of Fun

For some really strange reason, Will had sort of gotten into Love It or List It on the HGTV channel.

It’s funny.

He watched it with me a few times over break, but now he’s taping shows for us to watch when there’s nothing else on.

I think it has to do with the fact that he’s always shocked how much houses in urban Canada cost.

Seriously- like $1M for 2,000 square feet sometimes.

I secretly think it makes him thankful we live in quiet Oklahoma and have a ridiculously terrific cost of living.

Best Super Bowl Recipe Roundup!!

That wasn’t.

I thought it would be a great idea to do a recipe roundup this week in preparation for the Super Bowl… Which happened last week.

Oops. So yeah, no recipe roundup.

Today’s TBT pic comes in celebration of all the Girl Scout Cookie posts I’ve seen EVERYWHERE.

Brittny Flint-8 yrs old at Girl Scout Camp

Seriously, as a kid who had a parent that helped me out too, you guys should totally get free cookies.

Anyway, here’s a picture of me at Girl Scout camp in Germany way back on the day.

I have stains all over my shirt.

I’m assuming they’re leftover thin mint smears. Even 20 years later, this still happens.

For real.
