Today’s prompt is “What would you do if you could do anything and have a “get out of jail free” card?

That’s kind of a tough one. I want to say something dramatic, like rob a bank or something – minus all of the “Get on the ground” with guns pointed at everyone type of thing. I’d like to have a bunch of money and just be able to buy whatever the hell I wanted. Money is my BIGGEST stressor right now. Everything always works out, but up until the point of it working out, I stress. Which is pretty much every day of the month. But it’s whatever. 

I’d just want to walk in, say “Hey, I have this get out of jail free card, so you should give me all the money you have.” I might even share some of it with them! I’d be the nicest “robber” they’d ever have to deal with. 

So, I guess that’s all for tonight. I can’t think of anything else good. And I really need to go to sleep. I’ve slept through my alarm for the last two days, so I need to wake up early tomorrow. Boooo. I just want to sleep in.

Nighty night!



September 3 – Giveaway

Today’s prompt is to give something away. I really would love to, but a lot of time and effort goes in to hosting a giveaway {so you should ALWAYS, always be thankful for those that do them} and I am not really sure if anyone even follows along here anymore since I haven’t blogged for so long, so instead of giving something away, I am going to share some of my favorite printables that I have found on Pinterest, of course, that are all FREE for you to download, print and decorate with.

September 1 – Goals

Hello bloggy land. It’s been a {LONG} while since I’ve been here.. And I’ve missed it. I miss writing. Soooo much has changed in the last year… I’ve been wanting to blog for a while now, but didn’t know where to start. The other day I was browsing Pinterest {naturally}, and I came across this calendar for blogging. So I thought, “What the hell? I’ll give it a shot!” So here goes..

Blog ideas for every day in September.

September 1 – My Goals

I only have a million and two of them. My number one goal right now {besides being the best mother I possibly can be} is to buy a house. I seriously cannot get my mind off of it. And if you know me, you know that I am stubborn as hell and when I want something, I don’t stop until I get it. “My way or no way” kinda thing. I am going in to the bank tomorrow to see if I even qualify for anything. Also, my dad and I are going to look at a house I’ve been eyeing. It’s older and needs some work, but it’s for a really good price. I’m hoping it’s not too good to be true. There are a couple others besides this one that I have been looking at, but I am not sure if they are outside of my price range or not, since I don’t know if I qualify for anything. I’m nervous but excited. I want to be in my own place so bad. I want to get sweet boy a dog and I just want my own space.

My next goal is to get my bachelor’s in Psychology. I decided on Thursday that I can going back to school in January to pursue my dream of becoming a counselor and that starts with getting my degree. Here’s to an even busier life. Not quite sure how I am going to juggle everything.

Another goal I have is to pay off some debt. I need to be better with my money and not get suckered in to every stores credit card. Even though they have such good incentives! Ugh. The struggle is real. I need to only use them to get the discount and then pay it off right then, while I’m still in the store.

One more current goal I have right now is to lose some weight. To get back down to my “normal” size. I’ve gained about 20 pounds since March and it’s so upsetting to me! I have no idea why. I wasn’t doing anything different. It seemed like one day I just woke up and gained half a person. I’ve had to break out all my old pants from high school – which barely fit. This is the biggest I’ve ever been. I’m thinking it has something to do with my thyroids. I really need to get some blood work done, but we have been waiting for our new insurance to kick in. Now, I’ve been watching what I eat. Drinking only water. Walking at least three miles every night. I’m not seeing a lot of progress, but I am doing what I can. Trying to let the weight just take care of itself.

Those are just a few of my short-term goals I have for myself right now. Here’s to being able to accomplish them!
