Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: 5 for Friday

Valentine’s Day Special

Next week (all week) I have a Valentine’s Day themed special with manicures, clothes, and it’ll just all be about Valentine’s Day.  First and foremost let’s get one thing straight, I’m not a big Vday person.  No, I’m not bitter or anything like that I just think it’s a way for retailers to make up for all the money they lost after the holiday return season.  I have Valentine’s Day every day with the boyfriend whether it be just a simple “good morning beautiful” text, or we go out to the movies, oh and let’s not forget all the times I didn’t feel well he brought me candy and flowers.  Just being in his presence is a treat for me because since we both work a lot we really only see each other on the weekends unless we somehow make it work during the week.  Regardless, I decided I would still hop on the Valentine’s Day bandwagon and make my blog all about that one day next week since there are some people who truly do love that holiday.  So stay tuned!


It snowed, again.  This time it was actually worse than that phony snowpacolypse we were supposed to get last week.  I actually had to get driven to work because the roads were that bad and my job had a delayed opening AND an early dismissal.  Go figure, I went to work for half a day.  Mother Nature, can you not?

42 days until spring and 55 days until Fast 7

Well, guess what, I started two countdowns this week.  Only 42 days until spring.  Hopefully we can speed it up just a tad and it won’t snow once it’s officially spring!  Here in Jersey it doesn’t really get warm until the end of May.  I seriously cannot wait!  The best countdown is the one for the movie Fast 7.  I keep seeing all of these girls posting about how Magic Mike is coming out, meanwhile I’m making a countdown for a car movie.  I may look like a typical girl, but sometimes my inner tomboy comes out.  

"Dude, I almost had you" RIP Brian O'Conner aka Paul Walker

Gettin' my hurrrr did

If we don’t have snow like they are predicting (at least last time I checked) mom and I are going to get our hair done.  I think I’m going to stick with the same color but I’m not really sure.  I just love going because it’s “me time” with my mom and you know, regardless of if you have the money to spend on it or not, sometimes you really need that few hours to yourself to pamper yourself.  I think this will be my last attempt at the blonde but I’m still not sure, I guess we will see how I feel in the coming months.  It’s weird, most people go dark in the winter and light in the warmer months and I think I will be doing the opposite.  Who knows if I’ll go back to red or my natural brown hair color.  I guess we will just have to wait and see.

Friday Funnies

When my boyfriend thought he could race me and win...
He ALMOST had me

When someone at work is trying to talk to me after lunch.  I'm still in a food coma, don't talk to me.

This is a no brainer (haha no pun intended!), The Walking Dead comes back on Sunday and I'M SO EXCITED, AND I JUST CAN'T HIDE IT.  I'M ABOUT TO LOSE CONTROL AND I THINK I LIKE IT!

Yes, that was totally necessary.

Sometimes I really want to walk up to someone and do this.  I wonder what their reaction would be haha.

Me, every time I'm in my car.  I will purposely blast music and dance like a fool in traffic.  People always look so miserable, at least I can make them laugh for a few seconds haha.
