The story of Citrus


I bought the Story of Citrus dress from ModCloth on Monday!!! I can’t wait for it to arrive. The moment I saw it I had to have it. It is so unique. I think it sold out for awhile and I just got an email on Monday that it was back in stock so I had to snag it quick!!

Gum Drop


So I got this Pastel colored spray paint at the store awhile ago just in case I came across anything at the thrift store I wanted to turn into pastel sugarness. haha!! I had some things laying around that I had been meaning to gum drop up so I figured today was the day!!


Here is a super cute picture frame I got from the thrift store for a couple dollars. I would love to find a bunch more but I haven’t had much luck so far.


Here is a shelf I bought from Walmart. I think it was like 6 bucks. I found it in the bathroom section. I was looking for some storage for some of my makeup and jewelry.*The mirror is an amazing score I just got today from the thrift store ($15). Those sell at the store brand new for over $60. I have been wanting one of these mirrors for so long. I am thinking about painting it white.*


Through some trial and error I eventually got them painted…haha along with some of my stepdad’s tools. (whoops) I got a little too excited about the paint and wasn’t paying attention. Maybe he won’t notice. ; )


I will post pics once I decide what I am going to put on my shelf. Here is the finished frame. I am going to hang it on my wall my would like to put an awesome pic in it. Do you guys have any suggestions of art by someone on Etsy or another shop that I could put in my frame to hang on the wall?

First ever outfit post!!!

Here is my first ever full body outfit post!! YEAH TO ME!!! I finally learned that my camera does have a self timer. haha I got this new dress yesterday at Target and I was just playing around with my camera and I thought “hey the lighting sucks because it was dark out but that is a really good pic of myself so why not just start now and post it.” So that is me!!!

If your curious..which I always am. I mean I look at outfit posts of women and I am like what are their measurements what size do they wear how will that look on me?! Well here you go. I am going to lay it all out there for you. I mean you can see the pic of me I am not perfect. If you have read my previous posts I have so far lost 56lbs. WOOHOO!! 60 more to go. Anyway here it is… as of today…haha

Ice cream from bananas??? What? !!!

Slice three large very ripe bananas...

Slice three large very ripe bananas

Put them in a container and place it in the freezer for five hours or overnight. (I froze the bananas in a couple small containers since I didn't have a larger one.)

Put them in the freezer for 5 hours or overnight

The next day take the banana slices out of the freezer...

take them out of the freezer

And gather your supplies...

Gather your supplies

* I use rice milk instead.

* Also instead of chocolate you could add some strawberries YUMMY!!

Put the frozen bananas in a food processor. If you don't have a food processor - a blender will probably work.

Put all the bananas in a food processor.

*I used a blender*

Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Add 1/2 tsp of vanilla, 1/3 cup of non dairy milk

Blend the mixture until it resembles soft serve ice cream. Then when it's blended add two tablespoons cocoa powder. Blend it again until the cocoa powder is mixed in.

Blend the mixture until it resembles soft serve ice cream, then add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder. Blend again until it is mixed in.

When it's ready the mixture should look like this. It's the texture of soft serve ice cream.

When it is ready it will look like this. Soft serve ice cream

Invite a friend over for a dish of chocolate banana ice cream. They will love you forever!

How to get the badge for Leibster Award on your page

Frustrated young  woman.


This is how I feel about my computer sometimes. I am pretty clueless, but learning slowly. Anyway some people had questions about how to add their Leibster Award Badge to their page.

FOR PEOPLE THAT WERE NOMINATED FOR THE AWARD ONLY!!!  (play fair and be nice everyone : P)

I am not very computer savvy but was able to do this pretty easily and I even discovered a whole new page on my WordPress Dashboard YEAH!!!

* Go to your dashboard

* Hover over appearance

* Click on Widgets

The box all the way on the right has all the widgets that are already displayed on your page. You can choose to put it in the side bar which is the top box or the Footer which is the box below and they are labeled as such.

I chose the sidebar

* From the big box on the left hand side click on IMAGE and drag that over to your box where you want your award either the sidebar or footer box.

The order of all the things already listed is the order they appear on your page so I put my image all the way at the top of my sidebar list.

*Now you should have the word IMAGE displayed in the spot you would like your Leibster badge to show up

Now that you picked a spot you need to put in the URL code in the image box so the picture of the badge shows up on your page

* Now go to my page and right click on the Leibster badge.

* Then there will be a choice to “copy image URL” select that

* Now go back to your widgets page and click the down arrow next to IMAGE where u choose to put your badge.

* Paste the link you just copied in the box that says Image URL

* Then click SAVE at the bottom

CONGRATS !!! You just posted a your badge on your page!!!!

Also I have don’t have a Mac computer so that might change the “right click” instructions.

Hope this helps. : )

And many others you guys are amazing!!

What’s the one piece of advice you wish you had taken?

SAVE YOUR MONEY!!! and Don’t get pregnant before you finish school!!  hahaha I love my daughter and wouldn’t change a thing but it hurts everyday I don’t get to spend time with her because I have to go to school.

When you were a child, what did you want to be?

I wanted to be a Veterinarian. I work at a vet hospital currently because of that. 

If you were not  in your current job what would you be now?

I would be a Nurse Assistant at a Nursing home somewhere. 

Everyone has a style icon, Who’s yours?

Zooey Deschanel: I love her style and her personality!! Rock on Girl!!

Modern or Traditional  and why?( Think ebooks and MP3′s Vs. CDS and books)

I like both. I would not be able to function without my cell phone, laptop, and digital camera, but sometimes I long for the nostalgia of the smell and feel of an old book in your hands, or being able to look over and admire your CD collection. I love the surprises you used to get when u brought your roll of film to the store to get developed. BE KIND REWIND!!! Ahhh going to the video store on Friday nights…

If your friends could describe you in one word what would it be and why?

That would be “Jess” They say that I act exactly like Jess from New Girl who just happens to be played by Zooey Deschanel. : )

What would your one word to describe yourself be and why?

Silly. I try not to take life too seriously I like to enjoy it and take others along for the ride with me.

What is the one quote, you wish you had said? (TV, Film, book, Play etc,)

May you never steal, lie, or cheat, but if you must steal, then steal away my sorrows, and if you must lie, lie with me all the nights of my life, and if you must cheat, then please cheat death because I couldn’t live a day without you. That quote is from Leap Year. It is a really cute movie if you like chick flicks, guys with hot Irish accents and Amy Adams you will LOVE IT!!

Leap Year

If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?

I would go to Scotland. A lot of my ancestors came from there and it looks like a really beautiful place.

If you made one big change this year what would it be?

Hmmmm…… so many on the list which should I pick. My big change would probably be to lose weight. I have no problem with women of any size. It is great that clothes are made for all different body types. I gained a lot of baby weight and I still have half of it 4 years later haha. I wanna fit in my size M ModCloth!!
