Sick Days

Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog.

Life update: I was sick most of last week, that’s why I didn’t post. I tried to, but I had lost all motivation to do anything. I wanted to write so bad but I couldn’t hold a thought for more than 3 seconds… like a goldfish. Luckily I’m feeling better now! At this point I only have a stuffy nose that should go away soon. Please go away soon.

All of you know that being sick or having a cold is NOT fun. You don’t have the motivation to do anything, you feel gross and icky, all you want to do is sleep and if you have things to do, it can make you feel miserable. So here’s some things to help you get through the sick days, and get back to feeling 100% again.

Ludens Throat Drops, Wild Cherry, 90 Count

I have been using these for years. They’re literally the best brand and flavor ever. I could use these even when I’m not sick because they taste good.

Vicks NyQuil and DayQuil SEVERE Cough Cold and Flu Relief, 48 Caplets (32 DayQuil + 16 NyQuil)

DayQuil and NyQuil Package

At night this stuff knocks me out. I slept through a tornado warning siren once because I took NyQuil and was knocked out for 12 hours. When I woke up the yard was flooded, tree branches were everywhere and the power was out in some towns… but at least I felt better haha

Nasacort Allergy 24 Hour 120 Sprays, 0.57 Fluid Ounce

Nasacort

I love this because one, it has a pump which is very convenient and two, it can be used if you’re sick or have allergies. I don’t really have allergies though, I just get sick a lot.

Emergen-C Dietary Supplement Drink Mix With 1000mg Vitamin C, 0.32 Ounce Packets, Caffeine Free (Raspberry Flavor, 30 Count)

EmergenC

I like to put this in a water bottle and drink it over the span of an hour or two, while Andrew likes to put it in a 6 ounce glass and drink it right away. Either way it gets the job done. It also comes in the flavors “Strawberry-Kiwi” and “Orange”. 

Those are some of the products I use when I don’t feel good to help me get better super fast because nobody likes being sick for very long. I hope you all liked reading! Let me know what your favorite thing to use when sick is. 💙

200 Followers?!

Wowzers. I can’t believe that in 5 short months of blogging I’ve gotten to know so many amazing people and read what they’ve had to say. At the same time I’m amazed that people want to listen to what I have to say. It’s truly amazing.

I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who read my blogs and who have gotten to know me on a personal level. It’s a blessing to be able to meet people all over the world who actually enjoy reading about my life since you know… I have no friends haha.

I remember when I started blogging I thought I would completely fail and nobody would care. So to all of you new bloggers, just know that there’s somebody out there who would love to read what you write and would love to meet you. I’ll be one of those people!

I know this post is short, but I just wanted to say thank you to everybody who has followed me in this journey. You’re all super amazing for putting up with my antics.  I hope you all liked reading! 💙

‘IT’ Movie

Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog. Last Saturday, Andrew talked me in to going to see ‘IT’. There were two problems with that… 1. I DO NOT like clowns. 2. I can’t sit in a movie theatre for 2 and a half hours being scared by Pennywise. But Andrew promised me popcorn and I can’t resist movie theatre popcorn with butter. So I caved in and went with him and I don’t regret seeing the movie.

Honestly, when I saw the previews for the movie I thought it was just going to be another crappy scary movie with a crappy plot line and crappy actors with too many unnecessary jump scares. Jump scares tick me off because I always get scared then Andrew laughs at me. (He doesn’t get scared easily so he gets joy out of laughing at me). But right from the beginning of the movie all the way to the end is an amazing plot line. It tells a story and actually gets you invested into the characters. You start to care about the characters and you get emotionally invested towards them. The kid actors were absolutely amazing which made the movie so much better. Don’t even get me started on the clown. That was such amazing acting and scared the crap out of me.

It was so much more than just a scary movie. There was lots of swearing, inappropriate  humor (my favorite), fighting, “romance moments”, and then the scary parts. I was actually pretty sad when the movie ended. I wanted it to keep going because it just kept pulling me into the story. Then on the screen at the end it said “Chapter 1” so everybody automatically got excited to see there’s going to be a Chapter 2 coming out in the future.

Overal I would not hesitate to give IT 5 stars. I will defiantly be waiting excitedly with everybody else for Chapter 2. Stephen King is the master at writing horror books. I heard the movie didn’t even capture how truly scary the book is, so I might have to read the book eventually. If I do, I’ll let you know how IT is! I hope you all liked reading! 💙

Hurricane Funds: Harvey & Irma

Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog. Today instead of writing something funny, sarcastic  and slightly offensive like I normally do, I want to talk about something a little more serious. As you can tell by the title, I want to talk about the two hurricanes that hit Florida and Texas. If you don’t live in the United States and don’t know what’s going on I’ll give you a run down. Basically, there were two hurricanes, Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. Harvey (Category 4) hit Texas and Irma (Category 5) hit Florida. They both costed millions of dollars in damage and several people were injured or found dead.

Down below I’m going to have some relief funds you can donate to. Any amount of money can help, even if it’s just a dollar. I made sure these weren’t spam sites that will just take your money.

Hurricane Harvey:

Hurricane Harvey Children’s Relief Fund

Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund-Global Giving

Thank you for helping families impacted by Hurricane Harvey-Red Cross

Hurricane Irma: 

St. John Victims of Hurricane IRMA

Disaster Relief: Help protect children from harm

Help People Affected by Hurricane Irma. Donate Now-Red Cross

Just remember every penny helps somebody in need! We, as in not just a country, but a world, need to come together. I find it sad that it takes a massive natural disaster to bring people together. We should all be united no matter what. Spread positivity. Be respectful of others. Make people smile. Do kind things for strangers. Don’t judge those you don’t know. Instead of hating and fighting we should spread love. Enough of my emotional ranting. I hope you all liked reading! 💙

Timmy & Jimmy Day Ep.2

Hey guys! Welcome back to my blog! I hope you’re all have a great Monday. For today’s post I’m going to tell you about what Jimmy and I did today. We have Timmy and Jimmy day’s because we both need to get away from people sometimes and just be stupid. It was a pretty great day.

First we got up earlier than we should’ve and went to Target and Starbucks. At Target we looked at makeup, Halloween decorations, (It’s Halloween season don’t attack me lol), and  clothes. We took the basic white girl “mirror selfie”. Except we can’t pull it off because we don’t look attractive at all haha

When we got done walking around we went to Starbucks and got some coffee and tea. We stood there forever trying to figure out what we wanted. It was such a hard decision. Pictures had to be taken as always.

Then we went to PetSmart. Jimmy is getting a dog soon and I have a little kitty named Smokey so we looked at toys and food for them. We just window shopped, but we”ll probably go back soon and buy some things for them. We also looked at the cute little fish and hamsters. Our houses are going to be a zoo someday.

We stopped to look at the cats that are for adoption and I want them all!

A half hour later we were back at my house, ready to eat lunch. I had Ramen (Of course) and my favorite chips ever, that’s right, Doritos. Jimmy had Ramen and some pizza rolls with ranch. For a snack we had Whales, the snack cracker. They’re kind of like goldfish, but better.

We decided to do a little self pampering today. We used a face mask, blackhead strip and finished off with lotion. We failed a little bit with the face mask but we got our crap together when it came to the blackhead strip We both had so many blackheads and nearly cried when we took the little charcoal strip off but it was so worth it. We had a lot of fun doing it and laughing at each other’s pain.

After we made ourselves look pretty with the face masks and the blackhead strip we filmed a video for you guys coming soon! Get excited!

*A brief photoshoot followed*

That was pretty much our day. We aren’t the funnest people but we aren’t the most boring haha. I had to take her home so she could feed her baby and take a nap. I can’t wait to see her again in a few days! I hope you all liked reading! 💙

Happiness

Hey guys! I’m sorry I haven’t posted much this week. I’ve been feeling pretty down for no reason. (Thanks anxiety, you’re such a blessing). Along with feeling down, I’ve lost a lot of motivation. I just sat around almost all week and did nothing except watch tv and eat. Today I feel a little more motivated (that why I’m writing now). To get me in a super duper good mood, I’m going to write a list of things that make me happy.

  • Pumpkin Spice Lattes (I’m going to go get one tonight)
  • Smokey, my kitty cat
  • Eating dinner every night with Andrew (Boyfriend and food: 2 greatest things in life) 
  • Watching Shane Dawson on YouTube
  • Decorating my room for fall (It’s very stress relieving) 
  • Basically anything to do with fall
  • Movie theater popcorn
  • Afternoon naps (Everybody should take naps) 
  • Getting breakfast in bed from my dad (He’s the best cook I know) 
  • Watching strangers to kind things for others
  • Target (What girl doesn’t love Target) PSA: They have Halloween socks for $1! 
  • Dance Moms, Ghost Adventures, SpongeBob
  • Baking (I have a massive sweet tooth) 
  • City lights at night
  • Being able to see all the stars at night because I live in a small town
  • Writing (Duh) 

I could go on and on now but I’m not going to bore you anymore than I have to haha. I’m defiantly in a better mood now seeing some things that make me happy. I challenge everybody who reads this to comment one or two things that make you happy! I hope you all liked reading!💙

What I Did on Labor Day

Hey everybody! I’m sorry I didn’t post yesterday. It was Labor Day here in the U.S. I know some of my overseas followers and friends have no idea what that is. Well, it’s basically a holiday to honor the American labor movement and all the workers who do their jobs everyday. There’s no school, a lot of people don’t have to work, and it’s pretty much the unofficial end to summer. People say the last day of swimming is on Labor Day, so a lot of people go swimming and have cookouts on this day.

Yesterday was a pretty busy day. (I was so busy I wasn’t able to post I’m sorry!). I woke up early to be in a parade with my dad. He’s in a union so he didn’t have to work. He works for an operating engineers union and it’s one of the biggest unions around where we live. The union was in a couple different parades but we went to the closest one. It started at 10 in the morning, but we had to be there at 9 for line up. It was really fun to walk in it. (Andrew and I got to throw candy out to kids…. but we ate a lot of it too).

Parade

I got a pretty cool union shirt too haha.

Union shirt

It’s the 100th anniversary of the union’s birth! I had no idea until I looked at this picture after Andrew took it. Even though there were a hundred people there with the exact same shirt on. I’m just clueless.

While we were waiting for the parade to start I saw a huge dog that is bigger than me but he was sooo cute and snuggly.

Dog from parade

After the parade my dad, Andrew and I went to the union hall to eat some extremely yummy food. My dad said it gets better and better every year. Andrew said the food was absolutely amazing. I thought it was pretty good as well. Along with food, there was a rock climbing wall, a bunch of jumpy houses, games for kids and a few of the machines were on display for people to look at, get in and check out all the nifty buttons.

Well, that’s everything I did yesterday. I took a very well deserved nap after that. I hope you all liked reading! 💙
