5 on a Friday!

Am I a part-time blogger or what these days? I promise I'll be better next week! Work life is interfering with blog life, you know how it goes sometimes. I have had the most amazing week though! The good Lord is answering prayers for me in a big way. And I am so beyond humbled by all the incredibly kind comments from you guys on my 1 year post on Monday. It feels so good to have amazing women on my side who genuinely want to help me grow and succeed. LOVE YOU GUYS!
We got a new mascot costume at work. I'm a big fan! I can't tell you how many times yesterday I put this head on and walked around the office. HUGE head = smaller body. I love it.
(please disregard my disgustingly cluttered bathroom in the background) I am IN LOVE with this Rimmel Stay Matte foundation that I got from Influenster! I don't typically use foundation, but I have started using this stuff and it's awesome! It's a liquid mousse so it goes on very smooth and doesn't leave my face streaky or orangey looking. I'm a big fan of Rimmel products anyhow because of their affordable cost.

I have had a slight girl crush on Kacey Musgraves for several months now, but I love this song of hers! (although I didn't like her stink eye to Miranda Lambert the other night on the CMA's)

Countdowns make me excited!
*13 days until girls trip to Nashville with Cassie, Kim, Manda & Christa (& meeting up with Jackie!)
*37 days until JT in Louisville!!!!
*70 days until LUKE BRYAN in KNOXVILLE!!


I have been on such a One Tree Hill kick ever since I discovered the reruns on SOAPnet. I DVR it and spend my weekends lusting over Lucas and Nathan. Seriously, do they even make guys like this in real life??

Happy weekend loves!


Amanda aka Manda said...

The mascot head it too funny! I'd love to walk around our office with the cardinal head on! lol. I'm loving "Follow Your Arrow" so much right now! I can't believe that Nashville is in 13 days and JT in 37!! SO MUCH to look forward to! And Nathan Scott...SO YUMMY!!!! Can he be at the top of my Christmas list???

Jamie said...

That head is huge!

Life With Lauren said...

They definitely don’t make them like that in real life ;) such a good picture of him. Day 70 Luke oh my that will be amazing! I have not tried that BB cream might need to get it and the mascot one is so funny!

Allison said...

I was such a OTH fan. I was so sad to see it end. Nathan Scott had my heart! I'm seeing Luke in Greensboro soon after and I can't wait! Did y'all get good seats?

Kalie said...

Haha I was our mascot once for a photo shoot because no one else fit the suit. Not fun when its 90 degrees outside in your in a muscle suit and devil head. Haha Also, I was super excited for Kacey too!

Life of a Little Songbird said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE OTH! & I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed her giving the stink eye to Miranda! What was that about?!

Kerry @ Till Then Smile Often said...

That mascot head is too cute!! Love Rimmel products. The stinkeye was a little bratty but I do like her song "The Trailer Song".

Elise @ Cheers Yall said...

i loled at that first pic. HA! love it!!!! i wrote about the CMAS too this week. Yay! great minds...;)

Whitney @ EHFAR said...

What do you do where there is a mascot head in your office? Hehe.

I LOVE One Tree Hill and watch the reruns everyday on SOAPnet, even though they are on Netflix. I even make the husband watch it. HAHA.

I love Rimmel products. So affordable and good quality.

I also love Kacey's song, Follow Your Arrow.

Katie said...

I think I am going to keep an eye for that foundation. I need something new.

Agree with the stink eye Kacey gave Miranda. Chill sister!! Not a good look especially when you are a fairly new artist.

TheTinyHeart said...

Haha, I love that mascot head! Maybe I'll try out that Rimmel product...I usually use a BB cream but your review is convincing :) Have a great weekend!

No one can hate Miranda Lambert unless they are mental cuz she's fab like you my friend!!

Helene in Between said...

Because my work life has been crazy as well I didn't get to see your post on Monday until today. I loved it. You are such a strong, amazing woman that other bloggers and women look up to. I know that life has so much in store for you!!

Jackie said...

13 days! 13 days! 13 days!!! :)

hahaha i love that mascot head!

Jordan said...

HOLD TF UP. Is that Nathan?! Oh hell yes. I absolutely love Rimmel (especially their concealer) but have never tried their foundation! I've pretty much quit wearing face makeup but I am so tempted to try this one. I get shiny in my t zone throughout the day so this sounds good. And I don't know if I can get behind anyone who gives the stank eye to Miranda. I'll trust you on this one though.

Erin @ Keep Calm and Sparkle said... forgot your 46 day countdown...Mav's due date!! LOL!! Even though it is looking more and more like he will make an appearance a little earlier than Christmas Day!!

Musgraves is on my shit list right now for giving my Bestie the stink eye - I was telling Trav about it this am and got all pissed all over again!!

Soooooooo jealous that I am not on the Nashville list either - damn kid!! LOL


Laurie @ Disney 'n Diapers said...

So jealous you are going to see my other husband in 70 days!! He isn't doing anything "local" to me next year so we are traveling to Atlantic City for the weekend to see him. Need my yearly Luke fix;)

lil desiqua said...

OTH Fan for life!!! Seriously, it was such an amazing show. Might have to add to the Netflix queue! Love the pic with the Mascot head- too funny! I haven't tried that foundation, or any mousse version, is it easier to use than liquid?

claire said...

I hear you on the part time blogging!!! Either I've got nothing to say or no time to say it! I just got a chance to read the one year post and I think it's awesome! You have such a real and positive attitude, which I admire so much! I could definitely take a page out of your book!

Aly said...

Oh my gosh! Miranda was saying so many sweet things and she just stared blankly! What a B!

The Peanut Program said...

i freaking love nathan scott and have threated mike many times that if and when we have kids and its a boy, his name will be nathan scott!!!

P.s. i dont like him for reals though because i tweeted and he didnt response! pssh. i mean what's he doing now anyway without OTH??

Anonymous said...

I loved Kacey Musgraves song the other night, I almost put in my post today too.

She might be my new favorite country artist.

Nicole Cors said...

What a week! I always love a good countdown :)- it looks like you have some exciting things to look forward to!


Kathy @ Vodka and Soda said...

I NEED THAT MASCOT HEAD IN MY LIFE. i would bbe wearing that to EVERY meeting if we had something like that there. i don't know if you know this, but in the 80s, there was a toy called Merlin which looked like a red telephone and had buttons(it was really a game for kids - you follow the sound patterns and shit) but if you pressed this one button, it would say "I AM MERLIN" in this robotic voice. well, a co worker brought that in and we took it with us to all conference calls so when the person chairing the call would ask who joined the bridge, we would press the button and it would say "I AM MERLIN" and the person on the phone would say, "hi merlin, thanks for joining" and we would bust our asses laughing.

the shenanigans we do at work to keep ourselves entertained.

there's no point to this comment, really..other than that mascot head reminded me of the crap we do at work.

have a great weekend!

Kathy @ Vodka and Soda said...

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

Okay I'll have to try that Rimmel foundation, I love anything Rimmel!

And don't even get me started on OTH. I watched it as it aired on TV, then rewatched the series again, then rewatched it with Izzy. Ugh that series makes me SO HAPPY.

Hallie Oceanside said...

Oh my gosh you have a picture of Nathan Scott on your blog.

Did we just become even bester best friends?


Jennifer said...

LOVE one tree hill! at one point a few years ago, they were playing 2 episodes every morning. i dvr'ed it and watched them every night. all however-many seasons of it.

Lauren said...

you will LOVE LOVE LOVE JT in concert. I saw JT and JayZ this summer and it was AMAZING

Amy @ Living n Learning said...

Rerun marathons of OTH on SOAPnet have been known to suck my mom and I in a time or two over the weekend. I always get a kick out of seeing the phones on the show. It makes me realize how long ago it was on TV! Dang does that make me old?

Reba K. Writes said...

Why did she give Miranda the stink eye???

Nina Berger said...

Nikki- Did you know OTH is on Netflix? I recently watched them all again, and it was even better the 2nd time around.

When I say 2nd, I really mean 4th, haha. That show was like crack.
