30 Day Challenge: Day 9

~*Day 09 –  Something you’re proud of from the past few days.*~

Something just happened today that I can be proud of. So when I get cranky/irritated/pissed off – I take it out on Hurricane and that’s not always fair. I know it’s not the “adult” thing to do and it doesn’t really stop me from acting out. When I get this way, I have a tendency to take something insignificant and make it a really big deal. I did that today and then realized I was being a major bitch so I apologized. I’m proud that I apologized and explained why I was acting out. Plus, the turnaround time was pretty quick. We were texting and almost as soon as I sent the mean text, I turned around and sent the apology. I’m not proud of how I act when I don’t get my way or am in a bad mood. I am working on that though. Baby steps. =)

30 Days of Me: Day 8

~*~ Day 08 –  Short term goals for this month and why. ~*~

Soooo I’ve definitely not been doing this as regularly as I’d hoped. Alright so short term goals for the month? Well January is almost over. (Already?!!! >.<) I was participating in the No Spend January challenge a lot of fashion bloggers have been doing. Although I do have a blog, it’s by no means a fashion one so I didn’t want to “officially” join the challenge. I have been very good so far! I did kind of cheat over the weekend though. I was with Hurricane and saw this really nice purse for $5. Instead of me buying it, I asked her to buy it for me. It was a gift from her right?? Right?! o.O Yeah – probably not. I did use gift cards from Christmas but I do not count those as part of my earned money. During the first couple of weeks I kept forgetting I wasn’t supposed to spend money on clothes, etc. Target is my Achilles heel! Every time I enter I gravitate straight towards the clothes, particularly the clearance section first. One day I went into Target to get some cereal and before I knew it, I was halfway through a clearance rack before I remembered the challenge! Ooops… It’s not hard to refrain from spending the money as much as it’s hard to resist going into stores. I am on a budget so when I’m not making these promises to myself, I don’t spend very much anyways.

So I guess I should come up with a short-term goal for February? I dunno. I would like to start exercising yet I know how stubborn/lazy I can be and I may not do that. I can make it a goal to walk more during lunch. That’s been a goal of mine before though and I’ve not obtained that one. Hmmm…maybe to refrain as much as possible from negative thinking. I think that one would have better results at the moment. I’m such a self-conscious person and my self-esteem fluctuates dramatically based on someone else’s opinion of me. That’s unhealthy and I can’t rely on others for my happiness (or so I’m told). I have to learn to love myself for who I am, what I look like, what my body can do, etc. So yes – February is the month of love anyways so I’ll make it my month of self-love! ❤

Oh and I guess I’ll include an OOTD. I am surviving off 2 hours of sleep so I look less than jubilant in this pic. Nothing terribly fascinating about this outfit. The shirt is the only animal print I own. I have yet to buy more animal print because of that voice in my head “It looks great on others and you just can’t pull it off!” I need to silence that voice ASAP. And I feel like the outfit is missing that final…oomph! people talk about. Skinny belt? Better jewelry? I need bangles in my life! Going through my bracelets this morning was depressing. I don’t have enough! Not going to mention the jewelry details since they’re in the previous posts. The earrings are different – they were a gift from my lovely girlfriend. I believe she bought them at Macy’s.

30 Days of Me: Day 7

A picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you.

I’m having a bit of hard time thinking of something or someone. My parents have a big impact but that’s kind of predictable, IMO. So I went with babies. Since I want to be a baby catcher I figured it was appropriate. Babies really do have an impact on me though. Anytime I’m in a foul mood all I have to do is hear a baby’s laugh or see an adorable baby in the store and my mood improves. Something about them warms my heart. I was excited to see my nephew at Christmas. He’s only a month and a half old and SO precious. He sleeps mostly and he even fell asleep while I was feeding him once, lol. Babies have it easy don’t they? It’s funny how curious he is already though. He gets fussy when he’s laying down too long or when you hold him horizontally he’ll start trying to lift his head. His mother said he’s most content when propped up on a pillow so he can see the world. He definitely belongs in this family. =)

30 Days of Me: Day 6

~*Day 06 – Favorite super hero and why.*~

I don’t have a favorite superhero. I like some of the movies (Spiderman, Batman, etc) but I’m not obsessed with any of them. For this post, I will choose Robin Hood. I like his mission: Steal from the rich and give to the poor. I don’t take this literally but I do like how he wanted to help the less fortunate. I tend to root for the underdog (I loved that show!) and like to help not only someone who may have less material things, but anyone really. That’s why I want to be a Baby Catcher. These women do more than catch babies, they also take care of women in many ways.

30 Days of Me: Day 5

~* Day 05- A picture of somewhere you’ve visited. *~

My junior year of college I took a little trip to the Big Apple! I was visiting a friend for a couple of days and was beyond excited. It was pretty fun even though I didn’t get to do as much sight seeing as I’d hoped. I took a million pictures of Times Square yet forgot to get myself in any of them! I have an uncle who lives there though so hopefully one day I can get back and spend enough time to really enjoy the city.

30 Days of Me: Day 4

~*Day 04- A habit that you wish you didn’t have*~

I actually have a few habits I wish I didn’t have. I do this weird thing with my lips. I purse them then make air kind of squeeze out of them. It’s weird. I used to do it years ago, quit, and have recently started up again.

I also wish I didn’t talk and move around in my sleep. Poor Hurricane gets beat up by me when we’re sleeping at night. Apparently I’ll hold conversations too and I’m not always aware of it. I’ve woken up to hear myself talking but lately I haven’t. The other night we went to sleep with the tv on. Hurricane told me I started talking when the tv went off. That must be a sign. When I was younger I couldn’t fall asleep unless the tv was on. That would be nice if I didn’t have an electric bill to worry about, lol.

30 Days of Me: Day 3

~*Day 03- A picture of you and your friends*~

As I mentioned before, I’m not going to put up identifying pictures. I may decide to put some up in the future. As for now I’m not. So this picture is of me and my friends had to be edited. I will tell you I’m the pink-face. Aren’t we gorgeous?? Haha This was a summer I visited home and took a trip with them. We tried to be all “Sex & the City” -ish lol. We had a lot of fun though.

2 of the girls were my roommates in school and one is a friend I met through them. One of the roommates and I were really good friends for a few years. We have fallen out of touch with each other over some dumb (I think) circumstances I won’t get into. I was hurt by what happened and find it hard to believe our friendship ended the way it did. I do miss her friendship though. She is a goofy person and always cheered me up. I know she’s probably doing really well though since she’s one of the most ambitious people I’ve met. She’ll probably be a millionaire because she’s THAT devoted. Maybe we’ll talk one day in the future but if not then so be it. She was in my life for a reason and she helped me more than she probably realized. 🙂

30 Days of Me: Numero Dos

~*~ Day 2 – The meaning behind your Blog name ~*~

Wellll if you really want to know…. My astrological sign is Scorpio and I’m a Queen. Point. Blank. Period.

Seriously though, the “Queen” comes from an inside joke with my family. As the youngest child I was spoiled and growing up I guess I’ve exhibited a queen-like nature. I’m not a brat about it, I’m just used to things being done a certain way. 😉 I’m not a snob and I accept people of all kinds; I’m very open-minded. I feel the word “queen” can have a negative connotation attached and it means someone is stuck up, snotty, spoiled (well I am that), expensive tastes, high maintenance, etc. That’s not all me! I love all kinds of people. I am spoiled but not as much as I used to be. I think all women would appreciate the “finer things” at times but I don’t expect that in my life. Some people call me high-maintenance yet I don’t quite see that one. Maybe I’m in denial.

I call myself a princess because I believe the younger girls should call themselves that. I’m a grown woman so call me a Queen.

To quote one of my favorite movies,  A Little Princess: “I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren’t pretty, or smart, or young. They’re still princesses. All of us!”

30 Days of Me : Day 1

Day 1: ~*~ A recent picture of you and 15 interesting facts about yourself ~*~

I don’t want to post a pictures of me or family on here so I’ll have to modify these some. Let’s see if I can think of 15 interesting facts….

  1. I’ve gone to a different school every grade until the 10th grade. We aren’t a military family, my mom just loved to move.
  2. When I’m sad/stressed/depressed, horror movies cheer me up.
  3. I have a thing for scents of loved ones. When my sister or brother would leave home I would have to sleep on their pillows because they left behind their scent. I’ve been doing this since I was a little girl. It drives me crazy that Hurricane does not have a scent. I can’t “smell” her when I miss her.
  4. Certain songs give me goosebumps and/or cause me to shiver. They’re orgasmic. 😉
  5. When listening to songs I try to sing the lyrics of the singer, backup singers and instrumentals. This is an inherited trait.
  6. I’m not a fan of foods with a weird texture like yogurt, cream cheese, cottage cheese, plain pudding, bleu cheese, etc. It may have a nice flavor but the texture makes it disgusting. I just found a yogurt I can tolerate as long as I eat it slowly and don’t think too much about it.
  7. I can’t stand to have anything grainy on my fingers when I’m eating (salt, crumbs, etc). I have a habit of flicking it off because it’s so irritating. I’ll even do it after every fry. I’ve done this religiously since I was a child.
  8. I dislike wearing sneakers if I’m not exercising. Living in the Sunshine State caused this to happen. When I relocated to a colder place I was forced to wear closed toed shoes. I love boots and flats but avoid sneakers as much as possible.
  9. When we first moved to the Sunshine State, I could NOT stand thonged sandals and avoided them like the plague. Now, they’re my favorite kind of sandals.
  10. I almost quit my first retail job before I even started. I was terribly shy and scared I wouldn’t succeed. In a few months I was a great employee and glad I stuck it out.
  11. Continuing on with my shyness trait, I would refrain from turning in class assignments if it involved having to get out of my seat and placing it on the teacher’s desk (if it were at the front of the classroom). It was too overwhelming to get up in front of everyone. This was during my awkward preteen/early teen years.
  12. I have a strong love for office supplies. If that were all I got for Christmas, I would be pretty content.
  13. When I get stuck on a favorite food I’ll eat it every day until I get tired of it. Right now I’m eating shitloads of cereal.
  14. I don’t like swimming in the ocean because there’s no boundary. Even floating stresses me out; I’m afraid I’ll float away into the abyss.
  15. In college, my gay best friend gave me a makeover. He’s part of the reason for my fashion sense now. =)

It’s kinda hard to come up with 15 interesting facts on the spot. I’m sure I will think of other things I would have wanted to say later.
