Random things…


this post is not going to be meaningful AT ALL, unless you enjoy random things I think are important enough to blog about.

In which case, read on my friends cause this is random:

Random Thing #1: I got about 3 1/2 inches cut off my hair.  If you can get past the ridiculous “selfy” (as I think they call them) you will see my hair is shorter.  I do this about every other year…grow my hair out super long then get really sick of the time it takes to blow dry it and then cut it off. 

I have learned my lesson of chopping too much off in the past, so I opted for the safer version and only got some cut this time…maybe I will grow a pair one day and go shorter, but probably not!

Either way…getting all of the dead ends cut from my head felt really good and my hair just looks and feels so much healthier!

Random Thing #2:  I can’t say I am proud of this, but I also can’t imagine I am the only one that does this.  Today was


like, a day i barely made it thru work without losing my sanity…we all have them and there really is no rhyme or reason to them, at least for me.  On days like these I usually do what any women/man/smart person does…

I indulge in the wonderful, the amazing, the delicious

Orange Leaf!!!

If you have never had this stuff, you must drop what you are doing and go there RIGHT NOW…or at least tomorrow.  It is frozen yogurt at its finest.  There are many amazing flavors you can serve yourself…and you can have a little of every single flavor if you want.  Then there is a magical toppings bar where you fill your cup to the brim with anything that tickles your fancy for that day. 

My go to is wedding cake flavor with strawberries, raspberries, chopped nuts and marshmallow topping.  Ok, so that is my “healthy” go to.  But on days like today I do what needs to be done and skip the fruit and add reese cups, reese’s pieces, peanut butter sauce, marshmallow…and maybe several other things if I feel like it that day, or need it that day.

Alright, enough about Orange Leaf…I just wrote way too much about my love affair, go try it, you will feel the same.

Random Thing #3: I just started reading this book “Roses” by Leila Meacham (pictured below…and yes I am also watching an Awkward marathon) and I CAN’T PUT THE THING DOWN!!!  It is so good. I am only on page 64 of 609 (it’s also really long) but so far I am totally hooked.  If you are looking for a good summer read go buy this book. I got it the other day at Barnes and Noble in the bargain book area for $5.89!!!

Ok, so that is all for today although I am pretty sure I could probably come up with many more random things to talk to you about…but I will spare you for now.  To recap: go get Orange Leaf and then sit down and read the book “Roses” and also get your hair cut if you haven’t in awhile, you will feel like a new person. 


  1. I picked up Roses because of your recommendation and because people are comparing it to Gone With the Wind, which is one of my favorite books!
