Friday's Findings...

For whatever reason, this week I feel like I learned a lot..

Saturday & Sunday:
I learned that 13 year old boys are really weird.  My 15 year old niece is my mini me.  My sister's boyfriend is weird and totally co-dependent. 
I Photo Bombed.
Sibling Love

My shirt was part of my christmas present from Katelyn and it says "You have Cat to be Kitten me right Meow" and I am in love with it.

I don't really remember Monday. I know I baked a bunch of cookies and wrapped a bunch of last minute presents. Around 4pm the mailman brought a package to my door. It was from my friend Ben.  Y'all, Ben sent me possibly the most creative package ever.  He sent me a party in a box.  Complete with Margarita salt, a flip flop for a wine glass, drink umbrellas and the piece de resistance, A Malibu pouch of Melon Margaritas.  Needless to say, I pre-gamed our Christmas Eve Service at Church. In my defense, my mom wasn't going so I didn't think anyone was going. I was very wrong.

Christmas!! It's not nearly as cute for a 24 year old to wake up at 6 am to open presents.  So I slept till 9am, made french toast, started Christmas Dinner. We didn't open presents until like 1pm.  My Mom made snarky unappreciative remarks about every single gift she got.  The only gifts that escaped her sass was the Dot perfume I got her, and the large Vera Bradley duffel that my dad got her.  We ate dinner around 3:30 and I finished off my pouch of happy margaritas by 5pm and watched awful movies on Netflix. I am so much fun.
Wednesday I spent about 4 hours at work taking down our Christmas decorations, and trying (un-sucessfully) to get a head start on January Resolutions. I didn't know at the time, but my parents went to go exchange and return all the gifts that my mom turned her nose up at.  Not only did my dad then take her to the Vera Bradley store and buy her a small fortunes worth of accessories to go with her large duffel bag, he then bought her a car.  A FREAKING NEW CAR?! Seriously!? She was a total brat and she gets a new car?! I'm a relatively perfect angel child who works 40 hours a week, takes college classes and maintains a relatively high GPA.  I give thoughtful gifts to my friends and loved ones.  Ask me what I got for Christmas.. Go ahead. I got new tires for my car, new tires after my current tires went flat.. 4 times in the span of a week (It was the same two tires every time, the front two). Merry Freaking Christmas. Bah Humbug.  Of course I understand that gifts aren't the real reason for the season, but seriously!? The woman got a new car after throwing the mother of all hissy fits. Wednesday night I went to bed at like 7:30 because I was exhausted, woke up at 9:30 and couldn't fall back asleep until 1am (which sucks big time when you get up at 3:45am).
I saw the sunrise and set all while being at work. 
This was a sunrise seen from the back window.
Work is super duper boring during the holidays because NO ONE COMES. Everyone feels guilty for strapping on the feed bag starting in October with Halloween and not coming up for air until New Years Day.  I spent much of my 14 hour work day alone.  I brought crayons and a coloring book.  That is all.
Last night I fell asleep about 10pm, woke up at 2:23am (I only know that because I replied to a text from Katelyn and noticed the time) and I was just awake. I tried to go back to sleep until 3:15 when I decided to just go ahead and start my day.  By 4:15am I was completely ready for work.  Around 4:30 I remembered that we were low on toilet paper and paper towels at work so I said to myself "Self.. let's go to Walmart." DON'T EVER DO THAT. EVER. Do y'all know who's at Walmart at the butt crack of dawn? WEIRDOS.  Seriously strange people.  It's not enough that these people just look weird, no, they are the weird strangers that strike up conversations in the middle of the toilet paper aisle.
Stranger: You getting that expensive toilet paper huh?
Me: Umm.. yeah. I guess. (I buy Cottonelle)
Stranger: What's that feel like on your bottom? I bet that feels real nice on your bottom. Heck! I bet that would feel good on your nose ifin you had a cold.
Me: Excuse me?
Stranger: I wish I could buy that 'spensive tp.
At this point, I gave a half smile and walked scurried away.  Almost immediately however, I was approached by an employee who was restocking milk. I reached for the coffee creamer and he mumbled something about how I hit someone over the head and took their money. I don't think I look like the kind of person who would do such a thing.. but  I didn't stick around to debate this point with him.  I think it goes without saying that at 7:52 am, I have already had enough excitement to last me all day long. 

Fingers Crossed for smooth sailing the rest of the day.

Lessons Learned:
  • Family Pictures are way more fun when you don't take them seriously.
  • Don't drink Margarita's (note the 's.. that means several were consumed)before Church, unless you want to sweat like a drunk whore in Church.
  • When you act like a total brat about gifts you were given, You'll get a new car!
  • Don't ever go to Walmart after 11pm or before 7am. Take my word for it.. Don't go there.
What Lessons have you learned this week?

Don't forget to come back on Monday for for a 12 in '12 New Years Eve Link Party Hosted by the lovely Katelyn and myself!! Grab our button and tell us all about it!!



  1. Wow. Reading this post exhausted me... I couldn't imagine if I had to live through it.

  2. HILAAAAARIOUS. I love love love everything about this. Especially pregaming before Christmas Eve services. I was at my parents' church, which, quite frankly, requires some pregaming.

    May your next year be filled with brattiness and new cars! :)

  3. You learned some valuable life lessons!!!! They made me laugh out loud.

    So... does that 'spensive tp feel good on your bottom? HAHAHAHAHA... so creepy.
