No phone No phone I just want to be alone today

Remember last weekend when I said that, among other errands we ran, I had gone to Verizon because my phone had been freaking out and not charging even though it was plugged in, and it had been relatively painless because the phone was still under warranty? They were going to send out a new one that week-all I had to do was send in the old one and -poof- problem solved!

I was pretty stoked because dealing with Verizon hasn't always been the easiest thing (and I'm sure I'm not the only one who's had that experience...). 

So, I get the new phone, go to my parents to grab it and activate it, package up the new one and go about my way. Because, hey, problem solved, right?

Not so much.

I tried to type something and notice the "q" key isn't working-there must be a dead spot on the touch screen. This didn't seem like too big of a problem - I mean, how often do I use the "q" key? - until I tried to log into the app store.

The "q" key also doubles as the "1" key. And there's a "1" in my password.

Meaning, I can't long in to the app store.

Meaning, I can't download anything to the new phone.

Meaning, I'm without Twitter, and Instagram, and all the camera apps I use to blog, and the games I use to occupy myself...and everything else I had on the old phone.

In the scheme of things, it's a pretty small problem, but it's frustrating nonetheless. So, I have to go back to the Verizon store and have them send another new phone...Ugh. I'll be getting that done early this week so hopefully by the beginning of next week this whole problem will be solved, for good this time.

Like I said before...
Damn, my dependence on technology!

Sunday morning, rain is falling.

This was fun, so I'm doing it again! Go link up and share your answers!

Favorite movie of all time?
It's kind of embarrassing, but I love love love Big Daddy! I love Adam Sandler and this is my absolute favorite movie of his. I could (and probably have) see it a million times...it never gets old!

Favorite movie quote?
"What do you want to eat, Frankenstein?"
"Thirty packets of ketchup!"

That's probably not actually my favorite, but it's my favorite from Big Daddy lol So funny- I'm seriously laughing to myself right now

Best movie to watch for a girls night in?

I'm not big on chick flicks, but whenever I'm having a girls night in, that's what we always seem to watch so I'm gonna go with Love, Actually. It usually turns into one, big cry-fest, but that's kinda the point, right?

Best breakup movie?
I have no clue, honestly! When I was going through my last breakup, I watched the World Cup nonstop lol

Favorite celeb eye candy?
Charlie Hunnam from Sons of Anarchy... I die every time he comes on the screen. Yum. 

Which movie stars closet would you want to raid?
This one is so hard! I dunno if she counts, but I kinda love Lauren Conrad's style... super simple and chic. 

Happy Sunday!

Not many ninja's exist today, yet they all have indomitable fighting skills.

A few weeks ago, my friend Katie at work went on vacation and when I got back to my desk, she left me little present...

A cute little voodoo ninja!

But the best part is the description on the package:

Seriously, so perfect lol

We don't care if we live through the weekend

This past weekend was busy (as per usual) but I came out of it feel surprsingly rested, so I guess that kind of evens out, right?

On Friday night, my friend Katie had a few people over to bbq. My phone has been freaking out (which in turn, causes me to freak out...damn my dependence on technology!) so I didn't take any pictures- but it was so fun! Katie is amazing-she has all these great DIY's she's done and is vegan, though she's just trying a raw diet so she's been bringing me in goodies to let me taste and everything is delicious!

Saturday, my mom and I got tickets to a garden walk around town so we got up and did that, which was a lot of fun! We weren't really sure what to expect but we both really enjoyed it. We walked around 6 houses in the area and even got to go inside one of them- a 16th century farmhouse, which was just gorgeous! They showcased lots of different kinds of gardens so it was nice to see a different mix and different ideas.

We ran a few errands then headed home to get ready for my Grandmother's birthday party. It was nice to see all the family together.

Sunday was pretty low-key. I went to work and after I got out, Jimmy and I ran some errands so I could return a few things and deal with my phone. That whole process was surprisingly painless-since it's still under warranty, they will be sending out a new one this week, no charge! Can't get much better than that!

We also went to the driving range after it cooled down a bit and he made dinner for us on the grill. We watched some of the ball game but I got frustrated and turned it off lol I ended up falling asleep pretty early, which is probably why I felt so rested on Monday morning-getting almost 9 hours of sleep, when you're used to running on about four, will do that apparently haha

We’ll remember always... Graduation day

Last week, Jimmy's daughter had her preschool graduation and it was so cute!

They all came in doing a conga-line with their little graduation caps-I about died right there lol

After that, they sang some songs and handed out the certificates-nothing too out of the ordinary but cute none-the-less. I didn't get a lot of pictures because we couldn't see much from where we were, but I think those show the cuteness well enough :-)

When they finished up, she left with her mom so Jimmy and I went on a little date night to a new sushi place a few towns over-it was sooo delicious! If he could, he would eat sushi every day so he was in heaven when I suggested we go check this place out haha

Kids say the darndest things

Jimmy's daughter is one of the funniest kids I've ever met. A million times a day, I just die laughing over something she says... Here's some of my faves:

  • "Holy moly with my eyes on!"
  • "I can't ride my bike to the pool 'cause I'm wearing my hat."
  • "Why don't people in cartoons ever go to the bathroom?" (I couldn't even answer that one lol)
  • While eating the tomatoes in our dinner one night: "These red things MUST be macaroni!"
  • Talk about her yogurt: "This is like the beautiful people when we're riding in the helicopter!"
  • "My skirt makes me look rusty"
  • Playing with Play-Doh: "You're good and you're nice, but you ruined my dog"
  • This was a conversation between her and Jimmy: 
 Her: Are you Italian?
Jimmy: Yes, I'm partly Italian.
Her: Not Italian... are A Talian?
Jimmy: ...

 Seriously dying right now!
What a funny kid!

You're not that social, just a good drinker

I saw this on a few other blogs and I though it looked like fun so...I'm gonna try it out!

How did you come up with your blog name? 
 The title of my blog is actually a song lyric that I really like. I've just been drawn to it since I heard the song for the first time and it's a good reminder to be grateful :-)
Here's a bad video of the song, in case you're curious...

What is your favorite thing about blogging? 
Honestly, I love being able to look back on my life. That's why I keep doing it-so I have a digital scrapbook of everything.

What is one thing you have discovered because of blogging and now cant live without?
Does Pinterest count? lol I seriously don't know what I do without all the great ideas on there. I get so many recipes and gift ideas and maybe one day, I'll actually attempt one of the DIY's I've pinned...maybe haha

Facebook or Twitter? and why? 
Twitter for sure! I stopped using Facebook a while back because of some drama and never really got back into it. But I love love love Twitter-its so much easier to talk to people and interact! (Psssttt...follow me!)

If one celeb read your blog who would you want it to be? 
Oh lord, I have no idea!

What is something you want people to know about your blog? 
That there's really no focus-it's kinda random and all over the place, but that's how I am too... so if you can follow along, then I think we'll get along just fine :-)

Got him spittin like that pitcher from the KC Royals

Even though Jimmy is a Tigers fan, he loves the Royals, though I'm not exactly sure why (part of me thinks it's just to get a rise out of me...stinker lol)

He also loves Brandon Inge-he was pretty upset when he get released by the Tigers a few weeks ago. He was even more upset that he went to the A's, not cause he dislikes the A's for any reason, he just thought Brandon should play for the Royals.

So much so, that he ordered a Brandon Inge/Kansas City Royals shirt. No, really. He did.

I may be the only one who does, but I find this hilarious. lol
