I saw a post from a friend the other day that she is going to see a band called BABYMETAL. I had never heard of them, but she was overly enthusiastic like OMG I CAN’T WAIT!!!!! So while I had a few minutes to kill, I looked them up online. I was pleasantly surprised. I didn’t think such a thing as cute metal, or kawaii metal existed. I was wrong. 🙂


Editors – Sugar

there’s sugar on your soul
you’re like no one I know
you’re the life from another world
you swallow me whole
with just a mumbled hello
and it breaks my heart to love you
it breaks my heart to love you

Life Lesson #1: always put your Target prescription bag white-side up in the cart.

When shopping at Target, if you get a prescription. DO NOT place the prescription bag red-side up in the red plastic shopping cart. You will more than likely leave your prescription in the shopping cart like I did. Only to freak out when you get home and have to drive back to the store and pray that the Target store employees are not jerks, and nice enough to bring it to customer service. I am so thankful I didn’t lose a month’s worth of medicine, and that the Target people are nice. 🙂

Life Lesson #2: always check size on the shoes in the box, not just on the box.

When purchasing a pair of shoes for someone else, you just grab the box and go. I did open the box to make sure both shoes were inside. They were even wrapped nicely like they were brand new and not tried on. But I didn’t notice until I got them home to try them on my son that the box said size 13 but the shoes inside were actually a size 12. Always check on the shoes too! not just the box. 🙂

Sims 3?

I’ve decided to download Sims 3. I know Sims 4 is out… but I’ve read a lot of reviews and a lot of gamers really like 3… and while 4 has some neat new features, some of the other features seem to be not as free-flowing as they were in 3… plus with the new one out, sims 3 is ultra cheap. 🙂 i haven’t played the sims in at least 5 years… so i am kinda excited. of course i am overly obsessive, which means that once i open the game, it will be about 6 weeks before i actually play it… because i will need to create a bunch of characters and over-obsess about their houses and furniture, etc. i realize i am opening a very time consuming can of worms here…. but as of right now i am excited for a new game to play.

*impatiently waiting for download to finish*

going for gold

This song sounds like every 90s song I like. I heard this on british radio the other day…. I listen to XFM Manchester online from work sometimes. For some reason this song was one I missed back in the day… so its new to me. And I liked it a lot. Then I realized I liked it because it sounds like every other song/band from the 90s britpop era. It’s good stuff 🙂


I don’t really do resolutions… to be honest. I feel like why am I going to stress out and force myself to do something I really don’t want to do. I know I should lose some weight. I know I should exercise more. I know I should eat better, but I just plain don’t have time. Continue reading

Holiday Vistaprint rant for 2013

This holiday season, I procrastinated like everyone does. It got to be a little late into December, and I realized, oh crap, I never ordered Christmas cards. Now 10 years ago I wouldn’t have cared, and just went to Target and bought a box… but now that I am a mom, everyone expects a new photo of Peanut on the holiday card each year. Continue reading

Welcome to my blog

I am trying to start up this blogging thing again. I was on LiveJournal for 4 or 5 years back from 2005-2009… then I had a baby. He’s now 4. I really miss blogging, and writing, so I am going to try to keep updating this thing. 🙂 I still have very little free time, but I am going to try.

Welcome readers, if there are any of you out there. 🙂
