Confessional Friday {Link Up}

I've been doing pretty good this week, blogging.
better than usual anyway.
But Let me just get right to it...
Here are just a couple of my confessions:
*I confess... I couldn't be more excited that it is Friday..
But I actually went home sick today from work.
Which really worries me..
*I confess... I am really excited about my Halloween costume tomorrow.
Hints why I am worried I might be getting sick.
*I confess... I went to Old Navy this week to get one thing for my costume.
and left with 7 different things.. oops
{what happened to my budget}
*I confess.. I really question people who don't dress up or like Halloween.
It's the one time of year you can dress up HOWEVER you want and act HOWEVER you want!!
*I confess... I am really feeling old these days.
I seriously sleep 8-9 hours a night.
I eat dinner around 6:00. WOW
*I confess... I am need of a vacation.
A beach. Cocktails. and a cute cabana boy!
*I confess... since I upgraded my iPhone.
I've been through 3.
Maybe that wasn't the smartest idea.
*I confess... I really think I have the best parents in the world.
I have been thinking all day how blessed I really am.
*I confess... I feel like guys these days are panzies. But really.
Scared of haunted houses, or scared to ask a girl out.
crazy to me.
*I confess... I am obsessed with my Kindle.
I seriously read so much more than I ever thought I would since I have gotten it!!
*I confess... I think you should all go link up with
Leslie for some Friday Confessionals!!!
Have a great weekend!!

In. A. Funk.

I hate when it happens.
But it usually happens.
Not often.
Probably less than most.
But there are days when I am just in a funk.
A funk about it all. 
so this is your warning, if you don't want to hear me vent.
leave. right. now.
Come back tomorrow. 
It will be better. 
It will be Friday!!

"If I have said it once, I have said it a million times.."
{my mom always says that}
but I am the most impatient person you will ever. meet!
{I get it from my Dad}:

If I have something on my mind, I want to do it then.
If there is a problem, I want to fix it ASAP.
If I see something I want, I want to get it.

It's a fault. and I realize that.
I pray about it all the time. 
I think that is the first step.
But I think more than anything. 
I need to let go and let God!
He knows best.
In everything.

faith in HIs timing

I get mad at myself for:
pressuring people.
rushing things.
over thinking.
blaming my self for other people's mistakes.
I constantly have to remind myself:

So true.

 I get reminded of this everyday.
that I can't always hold on to everyone I meet.
That some are meant to exit my life.
and yes, as much as it sucks.
meant to hurt me. lie to me. and make me humble. make me grow.
I need to forgive. let go. move on.
and smile about those people who stay around.

I can't decide if life is one big lesson.
or large amount of little lessons that make you grow.
with each step. situation. and relationship 
you learn more about people.
more about your self.
and really how strong you are.

You learn

It's a challenge.
I know that.
trying to remember your blessings and be thankful for them.
thankful for the constants in your life.
learning to take the variables as just that, variables.
realizing not every friend is really a "friend"
and that the truth isn't always honest. 

Maybe my "funk" today isn't really a funk.
but a moment of truth that I just needed to get out.
Either way.

Praise Him in the hallway!

{{{ I CONFESS... }}}

I confess...

*That I have drank cokes the last three days.. 
It has to stop ASAP!

*I confess... I got a new iPhone 4S yesterday.
Yes, I had an upgrade.
No, I didn't want a 5.
(I can't live without my battery case!)

*I confess... I shopped at express 3 times this week.
Buy one get one 50% off on shirts.
You can't beat that!!

*I confess... I have 3 fold out chairs, 2 coolers, 8 wine glasses
and a large pillow in my truck.
bad part.. It has all collected there.
NO, I don't camp.
Just tailgate!! :)

*I confess... I got shellac on my nails last week.
I pulled it off 3 days later.
That is what happens when I don't really like the color.

*I confess... I would go to Keeneland every weekend.
To not bet at all.
Just have a couple of drinks
and be absolutely content.
I love dressing up! 
Seeing all my friends!
Is that bad??

*I confess... sometimes when I'm out
with people I start to love them so much
I add them to my favorites on my phone?
(The next morning, I'm always like whatt?)
{How weird is that?}
Yes. I love Emojis #sorryImNotSorry

*I confess... I CAN't online shop.
I found these boots I LOVE on
went to the store, they didn't have them.
So they ordered them.
Which means, I am stalking FedEx every 20 min at work.
God help me!

*I confess... I need a good devotional book.
I do daily devotionals over email but
I want something more personal and tangible in my hand.

*I confess... it's the weekend.
I couldn't be more excited!! 

Everyone go link up with The Blonde Ambition!

I am now officially 25.
Don't worry. I don't feel any different! 
Same ol' crazy me!!

I know I say this every year but I seriously think this was the
Birthday yet!! 
No. But. Really.

Not only did I celebrate for a WHOLE week.
but I saw everyone I love most!!
Let us start here.

September 28.
WhitBit and I decided to get our lives back together.
and frequent our local hang out.
Drakes. Which is like "Cheers" to us.
We have gotten to know servers, the DJ, the doormen, and most people who also frequent there often.
It FELT so good.
to let loose. and dance and laugh like old times!
{Her job took her away from me for awhile}

September 29.
I Got up and prepared for the tailgate my brother and his friends were throwing.
Whit and Kellie met at my house and we headed to Commonwealth.
There was a great turn out and it was so much fun!!
And of course, we went out afterwards!!

September 30
I got up and headed to my moms for my Birthday Lunch!!
She made my favorite meal!
We all ate and ended up taking a long nap!
Such a good time!!

October 2
My actual Birthday!!
I went to work and received all kinds of surprises!!
I was seriously so excited!!
All those beautiful flowers and a surprise birthday cake!!
After work I met a long time friend at Hooters
(yes, I'm even classy on my birthday)
and then went downtown for awhile!!

October 5
My friends came in town and I couldn't have been more excited to see them!!
we said we were going to "Lay Low" since the real celebration was Saturday.
BUTTTTT You know how that is. 
I wasn't even able to drive to dinner. :)
After dinner we almost went out, but ended up just going to Shamrocks.
Then had people back at my house.. till 4 AM. (Yikes)

October 6
For whatever reason I got up about 8:30 
and went and woke up Nat to talk to me.
After a couple more winks of sleep, I started getting ready about 10 AM.
Alex, Katie, Becca and I went to the club house for the day!
We had the best time!
I LOVE getting dressed up for Keeneland!!

We left Keeneland about 4:45 
Dinner was at 6:30 and we had to do a wardrobe change!! :) 
I think the ride from Keeneland to Becca's and then my house was my favorite.
We literally had a dancing PARRTTYYY!!
It was hilarious!!
We had dinner at Sal's 
and then headed to Parlay!!
I literally got the BEST table in there with my reservation
because I was right by the stage and high enough I could see everyone in there. (Thanks Elizabeth!!)
Jordan English was playing and I LOVE LOVE LOVE him!!

Then here comes Elizabeth to distract me from the bar.
She acts like it was an emergency and needed me right then.
I hurry over to see what she had to talk about 
and look who was sitting at my table!!

Yepp! My daddy and step mom!!
I literally screamed "DADDDYY??"
haha. To funny!!
I was soo excited they were there.
We continued the night away dancing and having the best time!!
All my girls dancing with Daddy O

October 7
I yet again woke up at 7:45 AM
So I went and got the girls breakfast!!
Then, I headed to Keeneland with the family.
We had reservations in the Stakes room and it was so nice!!
I love Keeneland!!
We had a great day laughing, fighting my hangover and daddy winning some money!! 

I told you!! 
It was literally the BEST. BIRTHDAY. EVER.
I should have taken way more pics than I did but..
I had like 18 people at my dinner.
I had a large group out to Parlay that night!
It was seriously my favorite!!
Thank YOU so much for all the wishes, fun, and drinks!
I guess I have to go back to reality now!! :(

oh. my.
I am now 25 years old.
it's crazy to me. 
where did the time go!!?

After going back and forth I have finally decided.
to blog (after so long) about:

25 things I believe
 in now that I am 25.

1. I believe in birthdays! 
No not just because today is mine but I think everyone needs at least ONE day to feel loved and appreciated!!

2. I believe in saying how you feel.
no secrets. no excuses. pure honesty.
whether it is I love you, or I am sorry. 


3. I believe in thanking GOD everyday. 
whether things are good or bad.

This is wonderful!

4. I believe having a dog will make you live longer.
I seriously question people if they don't like dogs.

5. I believe in laughing till you cry.
or your stomach hurts. 
i couldn't agree more.

6. I believe in Independence. 
over these 25 years I am strong as EVER. 
and I hope that never changes. 
Yes. Yes. Yes. Times a million.

Let go of your negative thoughts.

8. I believe in the power of letting go!
sometimes you have to do it. 
so true!

(just ask Cinderella)

like it or not. 

11. I believe in taking time out of work, for more important things.
(like Kings Island with my nephew)

as much as possible.

13. I believe in saying thank you.
or that someone is appreciated. 

14. I believe in fate.
if it's supposed to happen. it will. plain and simple

15. I believe all blessings come from GOD.
sometimes it just takes a minute to be thankful through the storm.
Best quote of the Olympics.

16. I believe in seizing the opportunity!
besides, bad decisions equal good stories.

17. I believe in enjoying the small things.
like coffee on a cold day, hearing from an old friend who just wants to check on you,
a night in with wine and your girls or a goodnight text from your daddy.

18. I believe in tailgating.

19. I believe in sweet gestures from guys.
flowers just because, a special dinner after a long day.

with Kathie Lee and Hoda
my role model.

as. much. as. possible.

22. I believe in Happy Hours.
they can change your whole day.

Happy happy hour!
