Let’s Get Pinning…

I have a slight addiction to Pinterest! You’ve seen those scenes in movies where an addict goes to an AA type meeting and they say “I’m so and so and I have a drinking problem” and then everyone snaps, well I’d definitely have some snaps coming my way if I went to one of those about Pinterest! I don’t what it is about the thing but it’s so relaxing. Right not I’m almost to 30,000 pins. Yes you read that right!

I literally have a board for everything. I may or may not have a board just for felt crafts!!!

Anywho come follow me and join in on my addiction!!

Earbud Tragedy…

When it comes to music the most important thing is the magic of the earbud. It’s so small and delicate that it must be handled with the utmost respect and love. But those little things are also quite possibly the most difficult thing that has ever been invented; you don’t believe me try and untangle them in the dark!!

Earbuds are just as vidal as some major organs like the liver or the kidneys! For me I honestly can’t function properly in my daily routine without them. I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s the simple fact that I have to face the real world head on without my own personal sound track! Whatever the reason I need earbuds to live peacefully in this crazy world. So one might come to realize that when my earbuds break it’s a very trying time for my sanity.

But the other day something happened that could only happen to me. It was Saturday morning and my parents, siblings and myself needed to clean out the garage. Because we are getting ready to move from California to Tennessee, (I’ll explain that in another post). No biggie, it was Saturday morning I had my morning coffee, and my makeup was on point. I put in my earbuds, turned on some Easton Corbin (mildly obsessed) and I was ready to get my clean on. Now you must know when I listen to music it’s as high as I can get it and I dance like a drunk girl on night three of CMA Fest and Luke Bryan just sang “Shake It For Me”. So anyway I needed to warm up my jeans and fluff them a bit in the dryer because who has time to iron. Okay I’ve done it like a million times, little did I know this time would be very different from those pervious jean fluffs!

Three Easton songs later and I’m now jamming out to “Lovin’ You Is Fun”, as if he wrote it to me. I go to the dryer open the door, grab my jeans and BAM, I got shocked. The jolt went through my MP3 player, (yes I still have mine from highschool), up the cable and right into my earbuds! IT SHOCKED THE INSIDE OF MY EAR!!! I might have screamed and it kinda freaked my mom out who was on the other side of the house. Who gets shocked through earbuds?? I didn’t even think that was a thing!! I may have reacted like the guy in the Bible that had his ear cut off, but seriously it was painful and it freaked me out. My ear is still hurting and it’s been a week!! Then after all of that my earbuds stopped working completely! Let’s just think about this a moment; I either have the worst luck in the world and somehow these things always happen to me or Easton Corbin is so great it’s “shocking”. I truly think it’s a combination of both but what do I know, I’m just a girl with a sore ear and broken earbuds!

Until next time!!

Merry Brettmas: Christmas Dinner at The Eldredge’s…

Enjoy…

Ladies let your man hunt or fish!

Okay so I’m pretty sure that one of the biggest issues in relationships is the subject of hunting and fishing! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard ladies complain and down right freak out if their other half wants to hunt or fish. 

What is the big deal? I mean honestly, why is it such an issue? Here’s how I look at it, men love it that’s a fact! I’ve heardtalk just as some guys talk about hunting and fishing just as passionately as they do about their GF’s and wives! They’re in love with it! Every single guy in County Music has at least on reference to it. Heck Luke Bryan even named his song “Huntin’ Fishen’ and Loving Every Day”

Men need to release some of that cavemanlyness that builds up over time. It’s true, one weekend away they’ll come back all ready for some “alone” time!! #DateNight

Ladies let them go because when they come back they’ll spoil you with some; hey get your mind out of the gutter this post is PG 😉. I was going to say attention!!

Plus men in camo are far better than some guy in loafers! What’s hotter then a guy with a gun or bow and scruff, I can’t think of anything!!

So next time let your man wants to get his hunt or fish on, let him!! Trust me you’ll think me later! Plus when he’s gone go do something fun with your girls!! CountryLiving came up with a great​ list of “26 Under-The-Radar Southern Girlfriend Getaway Towns”.

Sam Ponder, Lyme Disease and how it all has to do with my life!

I honestly thought that by the time I turned twenty-five I’d be married, have two kids, have a Journalism degree and be on the sideline reporting for ESPN or College Game Day. I’d love to host with Sam Ponder she’s awesome! Sorry​ for the fangirling, but she’s amazing!

Okay so things haven’t gone quite that way. Actually none of that has happened. If you told me six years ago that I’d still be living at home with my parents, sharing a room with my younger sister, jobless and carless; I probably would’ve punched you in the face. But there’s more to it, because I’m not being a bum.

“You have Lyme​ Disease and that’s why you’re so sick…” That’s what I was being told the fall after my senior year of highschool. So I have Lyme Disease. As the doctor was talking with my mom I thought to myself, “That’s nice, but I don’t hike and I hate to camp, so how did I get this and how do I get better?” That’s when the Doctor interrupted my thoughts….. “Because you have such an advanced form of Lyme Disease we would like to put you on an IV directly attached to your heart.” So you could say that I was just a little freaked out by all of this to say the least. On top of feeling awful, which included migraines that felt as if I had taken a hit from a defensive lineman and now I had the worst concussion ever.
I wasen’t to keen on having an IV put into my heart; I mean who would be okay with that and I applaud those that are dealing with that!!!
There I was feeling as if my world was falling apart. I wanted to be at school freaking out about classes and the freshmen 15! But no, I was in a doctor’s office in Northern California being told about this insane disease that has no cure! Oh and did I mention that there’s a huge government conspiracy behind it and insurance companies won’t recognize it as an actual disease!

Let’s go back to highschool, I had planned on going to college at either the University of Alabama (Roll Tide) or The University of Florida. I was going to double major in Journalism and Multimedia! I was ready for college. I had done tons of research on literally everything from the best places to eat, which church’s were popular, the best sororities (Tri Delta) etc. I was ready to be the next Erin Andrews! But as my Junior year was nearing the end I felt awful and things only got worse from there. By the end of my Senior year I was barely leaving the house. Plus my family was dealing with major church drama and now my walk with God was almost non-existent.

All I can say is I felt like I had done something and was being punished for it. Being sick has been absolutely the most frustrating and emotional testing thing I’ve ever been through. It’s still a battle, but I’m getting better at fighting. I went on antibiotics for about six months and it made me sicker. Which apparently is how it works. We weren’t okay with that. I mean I didn’t do much before the meds, but on meds I was now really not leaving the house. I ended up not going to college. But after tons of prayer I now realize that going to school wasn’t part of God’s plan for me. One reason I started this blog is because I love to write and I don’t need a Journalism degree to do that. I still wish I could do some sideline reporting but you never know what could happen! I have also gotten really into golf and I’m getting ready to start working on that pretty soon. I’ve also jumped into song writing and I’ve been doing research on music producing. I‘m still sick but I know how to handle it. Plus I’ve given my whole future to God. I have zero control of how I feel and where I end up. I’ve learned that I’m not the one in charge. I can try and take it over and well honestly that never ends well!! My faith is in God and his amazing powers! Do I think he can heal me, of course but he hasn’t. I don’t know why I have Chronic Lyme Disease, but I do and I will live my life to the fullest! I think Tim Tebow said it best, “I don’t know what my future holds, but I know who holds my future!”.

So that’s just a small glimpse into my life!!

Blockbuster Time!

When you click on here to start a post it says to “Share your story story​.” That got me thinking, What exactly is my story. Is my story one whole or is it a bunch of little stories all put together. That’s when it hit me; our stories are like screenplays, (for non showbiz peeps those are scripts​). All of our stories start out pretty dramaticly, I mean how many of us have been born on an airplane or on the backseat of a bus. I personally don’t know anyone but it could happen. We are the stars, we have a huge supporting cast, probably an even bigger villan cast and as our story plays out we go through ups and downs. We’ll have love scenes, fight scenes scenes​, scenes straight out of an action-romcom-thriller. It’s a master piece that Leonardo DiCaprio would want to be in!

So think about this, what do you want the critics to say about it when it’s all over? What award’s will it be getting? Who will it help, if anyone?

I’m still working on my story and I am going to make it a blockbuster!

Campaign Jam’s

So I don’t ever talk politics because it’s a touchy subject!! I totally understand I mean we’re passionate people in this country and for good reason; we did tell England to suck it back in the day!! 

But what I do like to talk about is music; especially when one of my Artist Spotlight singers/bands has a big accomplishment!! So when Sugar Ponies contacted me about this video I had to post it!!

Now don’t get crazy, a fan of theirs made a campaign video for Hillary Clinton and used their song “Give A Girl A Break“!! The Sugar Ponies didn’t make the video and just because a song was used really means nothing!! I’m super excited for them because it’ll help get their music out to even more people, that might have never gotten the chance to hear it!!

So wether you’re right or left, let’s all just put the political brouhaha on hold and come together in the name of music!!

PS, THIS IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT!!!

10+1 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me❣

There’s way more than 10, but I don’t want to tire you out!! 

  1. It’s all about the action movies! Okay so I’m not sure why but I really do love action/thriller movies. Maybe it’s because they mainly star all of the handsome men of Hollywood. I mean you can’t go wrong with some hot guy being all manly and shirtless!! (Don’t Judge, you know I’m right!)
  2. I talk a lot! Well maybe this isn’t surprising since I do blog and I have over 12,900 tweets!! According to my lovely parents; I started talking when I was six months old and haven’t stopped, (their words not mine.).
  3. I have never left the house without my toes being painted!! Honestly I think you need some kind of polish on your toes!! It’s just appropriate and shows class! So ladies No Naked Toes!
  4. I don’t have any tattoo’s!! This one sometimes surprise’s people. I’m pretty sure everyone my age has at least one. I think they’re cool but I’m a huge whimp and could never get one. Plus I’m pretty sure my mom would kill me.
  5. I had my nose pierced for seven days! This one is super pathetic. So I had my nose pierced in my living room at midnight (I was completely sober!), It was fine a friend who does this all the time did it. Then exactly seven days later it was infected and I had to take it out! So I looked awesome for about a week and then it was over! PS it wasn’t his fault my body acts weird!!
  6. I was homeschooled! This one always gets people. Apparently to be homeschooled you need to make your own butter and only listen to hymns. Come on people it’s 2016 it’s normal! Just look at Tim Tebow,(yes I just compared my coolness to that of Tim Tebow!) He’s awesome.
  7. In the last 10 years I have only read five books cover to cover; The Great Gatsby, Peter Pan The Novel, The Wizard Of OZ The Novel, Alice In Wonderland The Novel, and the Bible. This sounds a lot worse than it is. I am an internet surfing kinda girl. Wikipedia is my true love!
  8. If I could I would move to London. I am in love with The UK. If I ever had a chance I’d be packing!!
  9. I have never seen any of the Harry Potter movies or read any of the books. Don’t start I think they’re lame and I could never get into them!
  10. I believe in love at first sight! It’s a thing; I mean it hasn’t happened to me yet, but I know it will!!
  11. Here’s a bonus one! I am a firm believer that leggings are not pants!! Please do humanitie a favor and put the damn jeans on!!!! Leggings are not concealing ANYTHING!!!😭
