5 for Friday

4:00 AM


If you follow me on Instagram (@jerseygirltexanheart) you already saw a little collage of my birthday from my coworkers.  They went all out on my birthday.  I know I’ve posted about my birthday before from my coworkers but this time was pretty sweet.  I mean did you see the size of the minion stuffed animal?  I also wrote a nice birthday post on Monday for 28 things I’m thankful for.  I hope y’all get a chance to read it!  I was pretty happy with my birthday.  I got a lot of love and thank you to all of you who commented on my post with birthday wishes!

Update on Accident

Ok, so I know I’ve been giving lots of updates on this but holy cow it has been hectic lately with this accident business.  I’m assuming this is when everything gets complicated.  On Thursday of last week I got a call that my car was ready to be picked up so of course early Friday morning I dropped off the rental and had the boyfriend drive me to pick up my car.  She looked beautiful, it’s like I fell in love with her all over again.  I probably looked like a crazy person with the excitement.  Anyone who is in my area there’s a shop called Pana’s in Oak Ridge, NJ they do incredible work and I highly recommend them!  Well, my excitement was short lived Friday afternoon after lunch.  I drove during lunch with the top down and when I came back to work the top wouldn’t close properly.  I was so upset because I thought oh no, what if they can’t fix it.  This was what EVERYONE was dreading when I first got into my accident because I was rear ended and it’s a hard top convertible which if anyone knows a thing or two about cars, these things are temperamental to say the least.  This was not the shop’s fault at all, it’s just how the convertible tops are.  I had to go back to the shop Friday afternoon and leave my poor car over the weekend.  Monday afternoon (my birthday) I was able to pick her up and everything worked just fine.  I was the happiest I could possibly be.  So for now Coco is back in my life and I’m so super excited.  Now moving on to my health.  On Tuesday I went to the doctor again and found out some not so fun news.  I have to go to physical therapy for my back.  I’m still having trouble with it.  I can’t sit or stand for too long, I can’t sleep at night because as soon as I get comfortable my back starts hurting and I have to move which takes time.  Unfortunately I’m still afraid to be at a red light or stop sign but I’ve been attempting to feel better about this.  I even get nervous when I see a car approaching in my rear view when I’m in traffic or just driving regularly.  I’m hoping this will go away eventually, I mean it’s been almost a month and it really aggravates me because I’ve tried so many times to just tell my brain it’s ok and I still get nervous.  I also get nervous when I’m in a car with other people, yes, I’ve unfortunately turned into the “back seat driver.”  Thankfully everyone is understanding and knows I’m just extra cautious now.

Next Week

Next week’s posts start my two week long celebration for the Halloween holiday approaching at the end of this month.  I love Halloween and I figured one of my favorite holidays deserves some special attention here on the blog.

New Phone

Well, this girl got a new phone!  Finally.  I was due for an upgrade almost a year ago.  I didn’t want to get rid of my phone because there was nothing wrong with it, besides the fact that the iPhone 5 is considered ancient to some techy’s out there.  I had no problem until I dropped it a few inches off the ground and the screen shattered.  After almost 3 years of having the phone I just now shattered the screen.  Then two days later the home button popped out so my mom said that it’s a sign that someone is telling me I need a new phone haha.  I went to Verizon and at the time wasn’t decided with staying with iOS or switching back to Android.  When I saw the iPhone 6s plus in rose gold I couldn’t resist.  It just looked so pretty.  Thankfully the phone was free and my monthly bill only went up a few doll hairs.  The greatest part is it wasn’t supposed to ship until the end of this month, but it shipped on my birthday, thanks Verizon for the lovely birthday surprise!

No number 5

I don’t know what has been wrong with me but for the past few weeks I don’t have any #5’s for 5 for Friday.  It kind of defeats the whole purpose but I think it’s because since the accident I’ve been kind of all over the place.  Sorry y’all, I only have 4 things for today!
