Awkward and Awesome Thursday!

- I tried doing the sock bun last night. Woke up hoping for some amazing results. Annnnnd nope. Sock bun fail.
- After washing out the crazy sock bun concoction on my head I attempted to dry my hair and pin curl them the get long lasting curls. Fail again.
- Going to pick up my last paycheck from my other job only for my coworker to tell me that office's manager's dad had just passed away. Wow, um...I don't really know what to say. 
- I was waiting in line at a local sandwich shop to pay for my sandwich, and the girl that was making it went to the register, so I followed her over there to pay since the two people in front me's sandwiches weren't done yet. Only for her to ring them up and leave me standing there like an idiot.
- The fact that all this happened in the same day.

- Three day weekend! WOOHOO! And Monday is a PAID holiday!
- I started my new job this week! Full time, stable pay, yippee!
- Shellac manicures. Best. Thing. EVER. Considering I always chip my manicures the day after.
- Valentine's Day with my BFF. Getting dressed up really fancy, Gourmet hamburgers & beer, a chick flick, complete with flowers and candy!

Happy Birthday To Me

I seriously had the best birthday yesterday. I took the day off work, dropped Riley off at school, and headed on down to Santa Barbara to spend the day shopping with one of my very good friends. The weather was gorgeous - so obviously we had to eh a little jaunt at the beach. I got some awesome finds at Crossroads Trading, and finally got some new makeup! I finished off the day by having dinner and cake at one of my favorite restaurants in town.

Super Bowl Weekend

I think all of us women could agree that the best part of Super Bowl is the food. And who doesn't love a good party with delicious food?! I made turkey meatball sliders, buffalo chicken dip, and football cupcakes. Let me tell you, hardly any of it was left. The game was disappointing, but at least the food was great!

Gift Exchange!

So one day I was reading Casey's blog and she mentioned a little gift exchange and link up as a kick off to the new year. She was hosting it along with a few other well known bloggers, and I thought what fun this would be! So I e-mailed Alycia at Crowley Party and told her I would love to participate. I got an email a week later and was paired up with Jacqueline at The Halloween Wife

I immediately went to her blog and started reading. I got really excited when I realized she was a military wife (I'm soon to be one!) and that we had a lot in common - we are even born in the same month and same year! How crazy is that?? (Go February babies!!)

Soon after, I e-mailed her and we got to talk about ourselves. Her husband is currently deployed, she's going to school full time, and she's working - she's quite the busy lady!

Today I got my package in the mail and I was so excited. The gifts she gave were incredible and sweet, and she totally outdid my gifts! Thank you Jacqueline for all the sweet gifts you sent - I can't wait to drink some coffee in my new mug while eating chocolates and reading those magazines ;)
Go check out Jacqueline's blog over at The Halloween Wife!
