Even Elizabeth Did It Once...

Today would be my hero, Elizabeth Taylor's 83rd birthday. I found these shots of her as a blonde and since I went blonde myself last night I thought I would dedicate this post to her. Blonde or dark, forever beautiful, Elizabeth.

Mardi Gras and Hockey Games...

As the title suggests I just mark two more things off my list for my 30th year. Derrick and I headed down to the Scott Trade Center to enjoy our first St. Louis Blues game of the year.


We went down early so we could enjoy the Mardi Gras festivities. We unfortunately didn't get to go down for the big Mardi Gras parade in Soulard do to the weather however, I am still going to count this one.
Then after the parade we headed to the game. Now a little-known fact about me is I love hockey games. The reason I love hockey games is because I like to watch the players fight. Now normally I do not condone violence in anyway, shape or form. That being said, apparently all that gets blown out the window the second the gloves come of one of my boys in blue and the hockey sticks fly. I bring this up because of how awesome the seats were. We could see every shot, slip and punch of the evening. Needless to say I was beyond giddy.
This was a perfect evening for a #datewithmymate and we had a great time. I am so lucky to have this fellow in my live to enjoy the moment like this.
After all was said and done and we came out of the game it started to snow again. We took the time to walk around the city and admire it blanketed in the beautiful snow. How lovely and peaceful everything was.
After we finally got back to our car we made our way back to pick up our little guy from "Nina's house". Then it was home and off to bed but not before Gordon got into the Spirit of the evening.



All I can say is I am a lucky lady.

Pick Your Hard...

It's a New Year and it's time to make a change. One of goals on my list is to lose weight. I have already started doing little things but I wanted to put this down in writing. This is my way of holding myself Responsible for the goals I am setting. I will do a update post on this every week or so to motivate myself to keep going. With that being said, let's see how this goes.



Day: 1

Weight: 190lb

Highlights: Getting started

Low points: The fact that I actually weigh that much.

Goals for this week: 1) Stop drinking soda. 2) Look into a Zumba class to get things started.

This Is the Last Day.

This is it...This is the last day. The last day of being in my 20s. Well now it's more this the last hour. As I sit here as the last few minutes pass by I have decided that this is not the end of the world as so many who have come before me have made it out to be. I am not going to wake up in the morning a old woman in a matching sweat suit and fannypack (however, that's always a good look).
 And once more, I am in good company. Lovely ladies like Katy Perry and Kelly Osbourne have also turned the big 30. If they can do it while having fun and looking as awesome as they do then it can't be that bad.
October 25th.

October 27th
I have however noticed in the past few weeks that society has made the soon to be 30 year olds of the world feel this way. I see all these "Bucket Lists" of thing that you are should do (or have done) before this day comes. Like that's it, its over! Close up shop, you're done. You don't get to be silly, or spontaneous any more. You now must be a boring adult who never gets to have fun. Well, I am not going down like that. So I made my own list. The list of things to do IN MY 30th YEAR. This list has all kinds of things on it. From things I have never don't before to things I did early on life that I am ready to do again with a different set of eyes.
I have put this list on my blog (in the link above) and plan do try to cross off everything on the list within the next year. I will be taking my camera along to capture it as I go. Sharing my journey to make my 30th year something to look forward to, not dread.
