Teaser Tuesday!

Haven't done this in a while!

"I decided that when all of this was over I would go to Vegas and not turn back. I would throw the dice. I would go see Eleanor and take my chances." Pg. 233

There's a big surprise in this book! But I won't spoil it :)

High Five for Friday!

I've had an extremely productive Friday! How's y'alls?? 

1. I bought some awesome new make-up this week! Goodbye oily, shiny skin :) Shown in my picture is Smashbox bronzer, Urban Decay de-stick make-up setting spray, and Tarte foundation. So far, I've had great results. 

2. I finally bought some new nursing shoes. Everyone wears them and has been bragging, plus my tennis shoes are killing my back. Hope these work! 

3. My brother went to Houston and brought me back some badass headphones I've been wanting but wouldn't buy. They're awesome...blocks out all outside noise! 

4. Woman's orientation has been kicking my ass so I've been asleep for 9:30pm these last few weeks, therefore my reading has been minimal. I'm still working on Lost Light by Michael Connelly but these 3 are what's up next. Anyone read any of them? 

5. Guess what's next month....Mardi Gras!! Can't wait for Spanishtown! "Tis the season of king cakes, beads, drinking and parades! 


Linking up with Lauren

Wasted Wednesdays?

Not really...extremely sober while watching Duck Dynasty :)

High notes so far this week..

This little treat FINALLY came in the mail and it's ALL i've been watching!!! God, I love Mr. Big ;)

Check out the new 225! This is a great starting place to find some place to mingle, eat, listen to bands and be social. There's always tons of stuff going on in BR. Plus, here is where I found out that Sammy's already has CRAWFISH! Yeehaw!!! 

Nothing like reading a good book on a rainy day....for the 10th day in a row. Apparently mother nature thinks Baton Rouge is Forks. I'm on Lost Light by Michael Connelly. Harry Bosch has actually retired, gasp! But of course he begins investigating an old, unsolved case. We shall see how Bosch handles this one! 

What is everyone reading right now?? 

A few good places to check out are Ivar's Sports Bar and Thai Kitchen. Let me know what you think!

1. Not only is Christmas over but now NYE is too :( Downtown was a blast but apparently everyone went to the game in Atlanta. No NYE kiss for this girl :(

2. Who else has a New Years resolution? I really want to stick to mine this year!

3. We finally had our girls Christmas party/game night. Partini was an interesting game!

4. I had my first day of orientation on Wednesday! We've just been doing boring computer modules boo. But I have my first day on the floor on Monday yikes!

5. So I bought The Narrows by Michael Connelly and started it but then realized that I had skipped a book :/ oops. Now, I started Lost Light. Harry has a more somber tone in the beginning. Im interested to see how his character evolves. I'm excited to go back to The Narrows though!

Happy Friday!! I posted before 10pm :) but from my phone so if something doesn't look right, my bad!

Awkward family photo

Happy Friday y'all!! 

One of these Fridays I'm going to post before 10pm...

How was everyone's Christmas?!

I got tons of goodies! Including a barnes and noble gift card AND The Book of Totally Useless Information :) yea yea I know. My brother, Parker, and I took an extremely awkward photo. That's our only picture from Christmas lol. The dogs got a TON of stuff. Sophie was super excited to open her presents! I had a great time relaxing with the fam on Christmas Day. Can't believe it's already over :( 


I finished reading The Lost Wife by Alyson Richamn and WOW. This was so heartfelt and romantic. This is another WWII/Holocaust book and it was so touching. I cried through the last 30 pages. Lenka, an art student, and Josef, studying medicine, fall in love and marry in prewar Prague (which I learned is in Czechoslovakia). Their dreams are shattered by the Nazi invasion. Josef becomes a successful obstetrician in American but has never forgotten the wife he believes died in the war. But in the Nazi ghetto of Terezin, Lenka survived. Then decades later, an unexpected encounter in New York leads to once more chance for Lenka and Josef. I can't give anything away but this was such a wonderful story. It does go into the details of the Holocaust, which is still so horrifying and we go through Lenka's struggles. She becomes such a strong character. It's a love story wrapped in tragedy and survival. A must read! 

Up next, possibly Michael Connelly? :)

4 days till Christmas!

Happy Friday, y'all!! 

It's the Friday before Christmas and shoppers are getting crazy! 

1. There will be a BIG change for me starting in 2013...I got a new job as a labor and delivery nurse at Woman's in Baton Rouge! I'm super nervous but beyond excited! 

2. My best friend Katee is home all the way from London with her hubby! Tomorrow we're having a big barn party at her house. It's a much needed quality drinking time for all of us! 

3. My friends. I hate to brag but I really do have the best friends in the whole. Throughout the whole job interview, getting the new job and resigning from my current job extravaganza, my friends have supported me and stood by my side, especially when I panic and overreact. Jenny and Danielle have been my rock and kept me sane. I wouldn't know what to do without their love and support! Thanks y'all!! 

4. If you can't take the heat, get out the kitchen... I finished Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer. If you don't read anything else, READ THIS ONE NOW. I laughed out loud throughout the whole book. Basically it's about southern Italian mobsters and a food columnist who is trying to throw a wedding at her house. The wedding turns into a fiasco but with the help of mobsters and a hitman, they'll get through it...with a slight body count. It's a witty, page-turner you don't want to miss! 

5. PITCH PERFECT IS THE GREATEST MOVIE! I bought it Tuesday and watched it twice before I had to go to work Wednesday night. It's hilarious and heartfelt with singing and dancing...who doesn't love that??! PLUS it has Rebel Wilson... "excuse me bitch, you don't have to shout"... funniest part of the whole movie! 

Hope everyone has a fabulous Christmas!

Happy Friday!

It's Friday!!...and I'm off for the weekend :)

1. First off, I have to mention my new obsession interest, The Walking Dead on AMC. This show is phenomenal! It's an edge of your seat thriller and I never know what's going to happen. The writers do a lot of unpredictable/non- traditional things, which is CRAZY and mind-blowing Just adding this to my long list of shows, which include The Vampire Diaries, Parks and Recreation, Supernatural and of course Pretty Little Liars...just to name a few.

2. My apartment is a Winter Wonderland! All my decorations are out and starting wrapping presents. I love the holiday season! 

3. Fixed this little treat last night dinner for dinner and it was delicious. Thanks again Pinterest :)

4. My first Kardashian Kollection purchase. I love this shirt! Saw Kourtney wearing it on Twitter and HAD to have it. Check out their collection here.

5. Almost done with this one! I've been on the edge of my seat. Michael Connelly never fails. I'll be sad to see Harry Bosch come to an end :(. As a side note, In the Woods by Tana French will be a Dublin Murder Detective series. Her other 3 books focus on murder detectives but not the main characters from the first book, except for the second book. The Likeness follows up Detective Cassie Maddox. This one is definitely on my list.
