It’s OK Thursday, #11

So it’s a sad day because today is technically the last It’s OK Thursday Link up with A Complete Waste of Makeup and  Brunch with Amber. Who knows what I will post then! Maybe I will continue for a little while.


It’s OK. . .

  • to be have a really bad run but feel accomplished because at least you got out there.
  • to love flower bouquets, but also be tired of the smell. There are lots of lilies, may need to get rid of them to save my allergies.
  • that some days you just don’t want to work anymore, and I like my job but wouldn’t it be nice if I didn’t have to work.
  • to be excited that it’s 148 days till the wedding.
  • to be SUPER excited about my egg muffins that I made for breakfast this week. They are super easy and very tasty, now I need to buy more eggs.
  • to really want to see the Great Gatsby in the theater even though it got bad reviews. Any one want to go?
  • to love getting a manicure than be super annoyed you WASTED $15 because it chips 2 days later, that’s why I love the gel nails . . . but really $35 people come on!
  • to love getting to work early because that means you get to leave earlier to see your man!
  • to be annoyed that 6AM is my new standard wake up time, even though my alarm doesn’t go off that time each day.
  • to have no idea what to do at 6AM when you don’t have to leave the house till 7:30 and you don’t want to watch TV.

What’s OK with you this week?

Oh and here are the flowers I was referring to:

Today is brought to you by the letter F

Now get your mind out of the gutter will you? Not that F…but lots of them, Fun, Food, Friends, Flowers, Feet…what do all of these have in common? They have involved my last few days….I think Fun being the most important because that summarizes my week so far.

So food…well I tried a new restaurant today at the Annapolis Mall. It was Nando’s Peri-Peri. It reminded me of Peruvian chicken, except it was spicier. I had a quarter chicken and rice (it was sticky yellow rice, with yummy spices, sorta of reminded me of curry). It was quite delish…I wish I had ordered more chicken, but definitely felt satisfied after my meal.

Friends…I have spent the last few days on vacation enjoying the company of friends, friends and more friends! Some of they I haven’t seen in quite a while. Thursday I had lunch at my old job and visited around the building. I felt like a celebrity walking through the building. It was fun, but weird all at the same time. Next I had happy hour with some other friends (also from the old job). We get together about once a month, but it was still good to see them. Today I had lunch and hours of fun with a dear friend. We saw a movie, walked the mall, had coffee and just enjoyed the day together. It’s always nice to have time with people that make it just a an easy day. Tomorrow I have plans with another friend to have dinner at my favorite place…Iron Bridge Wine Co.

Flowers…that one is pretty self explanatory. I went to the Hershey Gardens on Wednesday, here are some pretty flowers from the day:


And finally feet. I had my first ever reflexology treatment done on my feet today. It was an interesting experience. It was only a sample 20 minutes, and I could feel it working different things, however I wonder if it would feel differently if it was longer.

So what’s your theme letter for the day?

Hunger Games done!

Yes i know it’s all the rage, and yes I don’t care! I read all 3 Hunger Games books in like 2 weeks. Weirdly the first book took a while to get into but once you are hooked books 2 & 3 are like crack! I even saw the movie this weekend. It was a good, but the books are definitely better, I felt the same way about Harry Potter. In fact I didn’t like the first Harry Potter movie and so I didn’t see any of the other ones.

After watching and reading the Hunger Games I want a love like Peeta, a love that withstands the crazy turbulence of life. Ok perhaps I don’t want to actually be a tribute, but wouldn’t it be amazing to have someone willing to do anything to save you. Although I don’t want this person to die for me…but the loyalty he feels towards Katniss is inspiring, and yes I understand it’s a movie (and a book). I haven’t given up hope that my Peeta is out there, but I think it might be time for him to ask for directions. I am a little tired of waiting for him to find me. Or perhaps it’s my butt needs to get out there and look for my Peeta.

Bangkok or Chicago

>It was the amazing movie weekend…Hangover 2 and Bridesmaids. Let’s do a little recap, and see who comes out ahead…ok let’s be honest it depends what you are looking for to decide who comes out ahead.

Hangover 2 brings us to another wedding, this time for Stu instead of Doug. It started out as an innocent bachelors drinks on the beach and turned into another crazy night where instead of losing Doug they lose Stu’s soon to be brother-in-law Teddy! There were parts of this movie (that I don’t want to reveal in case you hadn’t seen it) that most people should NEVER see in their lives. I literally sat there with eyes covered going “oh no they didn’t just show that”. My poor eyes and mind will never be the same. And oh the monkey! I loved that little guy although he was a super scary monkey at times too. As a word of warning, don’t leave when it’s over…stay for the pictures from Teddy’s phone, because if you remember the first one the pictures were PRICELESS!

Bridesmaids…any woman I am sure can relate to the characters in this movie. But wow the hilarity they portrayed on screen was great! The relationship between old friend and new friends is one that many women struggle to find the right balance with, and sadly many of us (including this movie) don’t accomplish it with much grace. The unique way they portryaed each friend is probably how many of us (at least only in our own heads) think of our friends at times. Bridesmaids had a lot of funny scenes, that again you just don’t expect for a movie, they clearly pushed the envelope with this one.

Overall I would say both movies are not appropraite for children, they have the rated R rating for a reason, heed the warning! Also both movies have entertaining piece after the movie ends. Hangover 2 was just a clear comedy. I laughed every few minutes and there was no drama. Bridesmaids on the other hand was again VERY FUNNY!!! But it had a bit of drama thrown in there….and in the end I will vote that Hangover 2 is funnier.

>quiet sundays


Some Sundays are just nice and quiet…today was one of those days. I slept in, watched some tv with coffee this AM and then spent lunch,hair cut, errands with a friend…finally home to relax. I watched the switch with Jason Bateman. It was a cute movie, of course lately they are always predictable endings, especially Jennifer Aniston movies, and I am not sure how I feel about that.I want a little suspense, perhaps I shouldn’t always watch the romantic comedy.
I do miss the Sundays of old sometimes, as a kid growing up with both sets of grandparents only a short drive away each Sunday was dinner at the grandparent’s house. I tell pretty much EVERYONE i know how awesome that was as a child and that one day I will continue the tradition when I have a house. Now I just need to find the house, husband, and the kids to do it with. I wonder if friends would be up for Sunday dinner at my house, you know how the Italians do it…Sunday dinner is actually at around 3PM and lasts a few hours with wine, bread, pasta, dessert…the good stuff! 
Speaking of Sundays, sadly last Sunday I was with the WHOLE family for that sunday afternoon dinner, but not under the best of circumstances. My grandmother (on my mom’s side) passed away. She was the only surviving grandparent left. I kind of feel like an orphan because they are all gone, but I also think they are looking down on me and protecting me. Perhaps they will even be sending good people into my life in the next few months. 
I have faith in God’s master plan and sometimes I am just a but impatient for it to get here!!! I do enjoy the every day and I look for the good all around, I just feel like sometimes that good is hard to see.
