Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: 5 for Friday

5 for Friday

6:00 AM

1.  I get to see my blogger seester on October 5th yipee!  I don’t think anyone truly understands how excited I am to see her.  Only a little over a week how exciting!  I haven’t seen her since August which is really not that long ago but if feels like a lifetime.  If you knew our friendship you would understand why we are so attached and want to see each other all of the time.  I read a really cute quote once and it said maybe our girlfriends are our soul mates and boys are just there to have fun with.

2.  Reflecting.  With my birthday around the corner I’ve been reflecting back on the last 26 years (hint birthday’esque post coming to you soon).  I’ve been thinking about all of my good and bad choices and all of the things that have happened.  Even though I had my fair share of curve balls (heck I’d say they’d be curve balls to the face) but I’m still here.  Everything happens for a reason and I went through all of the good and bad to make me who I am today.  I feel like over the past few years I’ve grown up A LOT.  Looking back on the past 26 years I don’t have any regrets.

3.  Astrology article coming to you soon!  So I decided that I’m going to FINALLY do some long needed research on Astrology.  It’s something I took an interest in a long time ago.  I was one of those weird people that would read their horoscope everyday (at night time so it wouldn’t shape my day, I didn’t want to have a predetermination of what my day SHOULD be like according to a horoscope) and new that she was for sure a Libra.  I always used to ask for people’s sign and I would go home later to see if they were a match according to the universe, oh and if a guy is the same sign as me, most of the time I go running for the hills.  Well, within the next few weeks I will be doing some extensive research about the subject and I will be writing an article about the different signs and what signs are compatible and even from experience how similar my friends or past boyfriend’s were to their sign.  At least I know Cancer, Taurus, and Aquarius are interesting to deal with as a Libra.  So here is where I ask you some questions.  I want to get some real live responses from people so all you have to do in the comments below is say what sign you are and either one or more characteristics that are typical for your sign that you are definitely the epitome for.  For example, I’m a Libra and people say Libras are indecisive but really it’s just because we see both sides and try to compromise so both sides are equally happy.  So pretty much when I’m deciding whether to buy one pair of shoes or the other it takes me a while and I end up either buying none or both. 

4.  It's officially Fall!  Now even though I’m not a pumpkin spice latte girl I do love fall.  It’s time to watch those pretty leaves turn colors (great photo ops duh) and it’s time to get puggle snuggles that keep me warm at night.  Also, my birthday’s in the fall and The Walking Dead comes back ON MY BIRTHDAY!  Yea, I’d say this fall is already awesome.

5.  Song of the Week-Wobble V.I.C.  Someone sent me an email and it said OHHHHHH and I instantly thought of this song, so this has been on repeat this week.  Enjoy your weekend y’all!

    1. Yay I'm not alone on the PSL! I like pumpkin but for some reason the PSL from Starbucks is just way too sweet for me. It might also be because I'm not used to sweets anymore.

  4. Happy almost birthday, Monica! I'm not a pumpkin spice latte girl either, but I do love fall! Now if only Texas would catch up with the other states on this fall concept... :) Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thank you so much!!!! Yes, I remember that Texas heat, I actually miss it when it gets cold here in NJ haha
