I'm going RAOK

Today I was reading a blog about a lady who did 38 random acts of kindness for her 38th birthday.   What a stud right?? you can read about it here

Anyways, fast forward a couple hours and I found myself getting things ready for the tomorrow and realizing that we had no milk.  I personally don't care much for cow juice....BUT Chase doesn't know what to do with himself if he doesn't have cold cereal available for breakfast.  So I found enough kindness in my heart to make a quick run to the grocery store.

While in the checkout line at the grocery store the gift cards started staring me down.  After a quick evaluation of whether I should spend Christmas decor money on a gift card for a stranger or on things to make my house beautiful I decided it was a no brain er and purchased a gift card without taking a moment to look back. (Everyone knows how impulsive I can be)

I quickly left the store wondering what I should now do with the newly purchased gift card and decided to leave it on a car.  

I went RAOK!!!

I decided that I should start trying to do a RAOK everyday.  I have tried this before and the results are always excellent.  I truly am the one who has benefited the most.

I really recommend that you try too!!! pay it forward, perform a random act of kindness, make someones day!

That's all:)

My hair is redpurple

So yesterday was my birthday party day.  My birthday party was canceled but I am not one to let something like that keep me from acting like its my birthday.

SO I convinced Chase that this clearly meant that I should purchase a new shirt.

while shopping with my friend Kelsie I found myself super attracted to the color red.  (I guess I was feeling powerful)   I am usually a neutral tones kind of girl but yesterday....I LOVED me some red.

where did this day take me?

to target in the hair coloring isle.  As I was earlier I found myself very attracted to the color red.  Not bright red, but dark auburn.

I did not take into account that my hair was currently half honey blond.... and this is what happened

This picture does not even begin to do my rock star hair justice. 

I will be going back to beautiful brown tomorrow.  redpurple hair does not suit me well

Once upon a time

Once upon a time there was a boy and a girl and they loved each other very much

The boy was quite the catch.  He had a kind heart, serious ambition, and the kind of integrity that you don't often find.  

The girl loved this boy with all of her heart.  How in the world did she get so freaken lucky?  After a year of marriage she would still daydream about her French speaking med student, his big old heart, and his rock hard abs...  

One evening after the girl was almost asleep the boy came in the bedroom and said
"You're on my side of the bed"
the girl said
"I am barely on your side cool your jets"

The boy left the room and came back with a measuring tape the girl said
"for reals you are measuring the bed?"
the boy said
"yes...I love you"
The girl moved to the ground and fell asleep, when she woke up the boy was right next to her on the floor.  Good thing they had a new terribly comfortable bed to sleep on just a few feet away... The girl said to the boy
"You slept on the floor with me."
The boy said
"yeah, I missed you"

and they are still living happily ever after.

The End
