True Life: I crafted with a sorority sister!

Standard

My best friend is in a sorority at UF and the other day after browsing Pintrest mindlessly after a day at the beach she suggested we do some crafting! Now lets make one thing clear I am not artsy and I suck at crafts. But we went to Hobby Lobby, got some supplies, and headed back to her house!  She got an oval wooden plaque, a cute hook to drill into the wooden oval, and some paint.  Her idea was to paint on a purple and blue floral pattern and then drill in the hook.  This way she could hang it on the wall and have a cute place to put her keys!  It came out really cute! I wish I had a picture.  I, on the other hand, just bought a wooden box and some stencils and painted it, it was simple but still really fun!  Crafts are a sorority girls “thing” so it was fun to hear all of my best friends ideas of what to craft and the best way to go about it! Next time I am going to make a row of hooks to hang all my hats and scarves on!

This is how my box turned out!:

It was also nice to be over at my best friends house and get to see her parents and brothers. We’ve been friends since middle school and I like to consider her family my second family. After dinner we went to Mochi’s Frozen Yogurt.  I got red velvet cake and creme brûlée fro-yo! It was sooo good, and I topped it all off with crushed oreos!

I don’t know if you can tell or not but I snuck a bite or two before I snapped the pic! Oops! 

Music Monday!

Standard

UH OH guess what day it is.  Guess. What. Day. It. Is! …MONDAY! (you thought I was going to say “Hump Day” didn’t you?) I did not forget about Music Monday today, not uh, no sir I did not. This week its a lil bit of Lil Wayne, young weezy, coming atcha.  My new roommate actually played this song in her car the other day for my other roommate who in turn showed it to me last night.  I cannot get this song out of my head! If you follow my blog you will quickly realize I like some weird, strange things.  Like voice at the start of the song saying “I feel like dying”. Its kind of creepy, and child-like demonic…and the sound gets caught in my mind. Give this song a try, if its not for you then, well…stop listening to it! Have a kick-ass Monday everyone!

“It’s whatever you want it to be”

»”It’s whatever you want it to be.”

I am a peacekeeper, a people pleaser, and the girl that believes she has to meet everyone else’s expectations. I am the girl who acts one way to her parents, and another way to her parents friends.  I act differently around my friends and the people I go to school with. I am an entirely different person while I am at work. I am the person who feels the need to live up to how everybody else perceives me. It has taken me twenty years to realize I need to stop allowing people to define who I should be. It is high time I give being myself a chance.
