It's OK Thursday & Catching you up to speed!

Hellooooo Ladies! :) Long time no checking in! Sorry I went MIA for like a week.. oopsies. After being out of town all last weekend, I really haven't had a chance nor felt like updating. Lazy. Uninspired.

I had a great time in Rock Hill with BFF Katie and a few sorority sisters. Friday night, Katie, Erica, and me went to Red Bowl (Chinese). It was super crowded so they asked if we wanted to sit at the bar.. um yea we do, that's fine! :) However, neither of us got anything to drink other than water. Lame. In our defense their cocktails were $5 for like a tiny glass. No thanks. After dinner we went home and just chilled, talked and played with her precious new Lab/Boxer mix named Penelope or Penny for short. I have like 2 pictures from this night & she does not want her 4-legged child to go viral, so can't post a pic of her and the pic we took at dinner is blurry b/c the girl didn't know how to work the camera on the iPhone. Seriously! Ugh!

The part of the weekend with my sorority sisters was ok. I think a lot of the girls are really gung ho about this "alumni chapter" of our sorority. First off, our sorority is not Panhellenic. It was put together about 16 years ago by a group of girls who didn't want to rush but wanted a more Christ centered and volunteer based organization. It's called Alpha Omega. Great! It was fun, I met some of my best friends in it. But now that I've been removed from it for almost 4 years (eeeek!) I really don't care. Not to sound rude or mean, because I know atleast 2 of my sisters will read this, but I just have other things going on in my life that are WAY more important than attempting to get together with sisters (whom I may or may not have been in school with) in my area to eat dinner or hang out. It's great to see these people one or two times a year at alumni/sorority events but other than that it seems forced. Not to meantion that when you get a group of girls together there will enevitably be drama. I'm 25 and 1/2, not married and no kids, I'd appreciate as little drama in my life as possible. Thank you. I love all those girls dearly, but I'm just not into it anymore, mainly I guess b/c the whole premise of a sorority is to be a sisterhood that you see and hangout with ALL the time because your on a college campus, living together, eating together, going out together, etc. Now we are spread out all of the country and it just doesn't have the same ring to it! Ok, sorry to vent, but it had to get out.

Moving on.. quick prayer request. The recent school shooting in Chardon, OH is where a friend of mine is a sophomore. I babysat her and her younger sisters when I was in college. They adopted me into there family which meant so much me. They moved from SC to OH after I graduated. Please pray for her, her family, her school and community during this difficult time.

OK.. Finally. What is OK with me, but probably shouldn't be! ;)

Its Ok Thursdays

It's OK...

...that a guy that I had a crush on about a year ago & told me he didn't want a relationship anytime soon (like in the next 3-5yrs) just changed his relationship status on FB over the weekend.
...that another guy I could like and who knows me completely ignored me the other day when we made eye contact at the gas station. Really?

...that I still have feelings for Firefighter D. Not just the normal after a break-up still have feelings for, but the oops I shouldn't have done that still have feelings for. We are seeing each other for the first time in over 2 weeks tomorrow... I'll let you know how it goes.

...that I want to go shopping and buy cute spring clothes but my paycheck, tax refund and bonus are going to bills first. Poo on adulthood.

...that I want to go lay in a tanning bed 2-3 times a week but don't want to pay for it with money or with my health. :/ but I love to feel like a lizard under a heat lamp.

...that I put a shirt on backwards the other day. I instantly felt 4.

...that I haven't had my dog spade. She's 3. Her appointment is set for next Fri. March 9. I may chicken out for the 749,382,908 time. It's just not convient, but is it ever?

...that I hate running. But need to get back on it, like force myself to like it. Definately want to sign up for the Color Run in Charlotte in Oct. Girls weekend? yes please!

...thtat I'm ready for Carrie Underwood's new CD to drop on May 1. Need some more songs in my life.

...that I'm procrastinating right this very minute. Maybe I won't on this rainy Saturday that is suppose to happen and I will clean my house and organize and "spring clean." Maybe.

...that it's 80* outside and sunny today in SC! :) *side note* NOT OK that I'm stuck inside in a cubicle. :/

...that I need the weekend ASAP. Have a lovely Thursday evening! Tomorrow is Friday peeps!


  1. I'll be praying for your friend! That's terrible that she had to go through something like that. Good luck seeing Mr. Firefighter! Can't wait to hear how that goes. I definitely want to do the Color Run in October. It looks so fun, but it will be my first 5K. I'm a little freaked out about that. It's so gorgeous outside today! I wish I could work outside, or at least have a window in my office. Being stuck inside a cube when it's so nice outside is pure torture!

  2. I cannot wait for the Carrie Underwood cd too! Sounds like you have had some amazing weather... totally jealous! Have a great weekend :)

  3. I totally agree about the weekend. Something felt "forced". It was fun and I loved seeing everyone, but it just wasn't the same...not even close. I MISSED YOU!!!! One weekend, me and Gray are coming to Columbia and we are going to hang out...whether you like it or not. We need a girls day. I hope tomorrow is just as beautiful for you! Love you!

  4. I LOVE "it's ok" thursdays!...and may steal it/borrow it one of these days :) I laughed out loud at the t-shirt thing b/c I just did that the other day in Kohls...except I felt like the chicken-with-it's-head-cut-off momma :) I also have been craving the tanning's been 4 years since i was in one, but i still think it's addicting...I mean how many places can you get away from everything and just be?? Plus the nice tan doesn't hurt the matter ;) Sorry about you and D...
    Can't wait to talk soon! Love ya!!
