The ORIGINAL Good, The Bad, The Ugly...

Happy Monday Friends!!

I hope you had a fantastic long holiday weekend!!  I'm feeling much much better so thanks to anyone and everyone who sent "get well soon" vibes and prayers my way.

Now for the fun!!

The Good:
I have so much good!! I've nearly gotten all my holiday shopping done! Tory Burch has an app! I have roughly 12 days left in this semester!! I gave my blog a make-over for Christmas!! I got a free manicure (though that wasn't the best experience.. it was free!) My cat is too stinkin adorable for words!! I have some pretty amazing friends, even if they aren't in my immediate area, it still makes for some fun late night texts, chats and giggle fests!

The Bad:

Yesterday.. I failed at dinner.  It wasn't entirely my fault though.  I made Turkey Soup.  You start with carrots, celery, onions, turkey stock and chicken stock.  I put that on around 2pm. It simmered and the veggies got soft and yummy.  Around 3pm, I threw in turkey.  4pm I threw in frozen peas (don't ask.. It's a recipe!).  My dad left to go pick up my mom at 4:30.  Around 4:30 I put about a 1/4 of the soup into a smaller pot (for me) and added egg noodles to the big pot (I hate egg noodles. Yuck!).  I did this because I was expecting my parents home any minute.  Well.. My parents decided to go to the store and got home a full hour and half later than I expected them.  So the noodles.. Mush.  Everything. Mush.  My separate pot of noodles didn't have enough broth in it and I burnt the bottom.  Needless to say.. Dinner was not great.  My mom was also in a terrible grinchy mood and I was just done.  I went upstairs, showered, finished my homework, and went to bed.

The Ugly:
On a day they were actually cooperating with me...

My hair.  I got shorter swoopy bangs. My hairdresser can fix them beautifully! I cannot.  I hate them.  They have a mind of their own I swear! If I don't blow dry them with a round brush immediately after a shower, they get really weird and then if I try to straighten them they just stick out awkwardly.   Add to that the insane amount of static I have in my hair every winter, and it's just not great.  My hair just sucks right now. 

I hope y'all have a fantastic Monday, and a wonderful week!

Linking up today with Kati of Incorporating Color!! Check her out!!


  1. Your dinner sounds like it had the potential to be great and it looks like delicious hot dish... or casserole where you live! Get back on the horse... make it again!!! :)

  2. I agree with my mom (above). Your soup definitely sounds delicious, sorry it didn't turn out awesomely!

    Happy Monday!

  3. If I'm making soup with noodles in it, I usually cook them separately and toss 'em in with each individual portion that I ladle out. It's worth a try! :)

    It sounds like you had an awesome weekend! Where in the world did you find a free mani? My nails desperately need some TLC!

    Happy Monday and thanks for linking up with Kati and me! xo
