50 Shades Trilogy

November 26, 2012


So I finally managed to drag myself through the final book of the 50 Shades Trilogy. Firstly may I just say that the sex scenes were poorly written, overrated, and frankly annoying. What sort of adult woman, virgin or not, refers to her genitals as “my sex”.

Admittedly there is something oddly appealing about the idea of a man who comes in and takes care of your every need, sets you up with the perfect job, who loves you endlessly. However 50 Shades of Fucked Up is not appealing no matter how gorgeous he’s supposed to be in the book. Though personally I refuse to believe that anyone with Copper colored hair and Gray eyes is attractive.

Overall the book is just about some guy with major mommy issues who falls for a girl with major daddy issues. The fucked up couple have lots of sex and continue to fight each other over personality traits that are well engrained and won’t change. So they decide to fix their fights and the possibility that they might break up by getting married. Then to deal with the drama that’s always surrounding them because they’re both 50 Shades of Fucked up they have a baby. Congratulations the books are now ruined and I saved you hours of time wasted reading crap Twilight fan fiction.

My anniversary gift was nothing short of spectacular. Love it baby. I’m indeed a lucky girl.

Color Run Birmingham 2012!

November 19, 2012

Long overdue but here is a summary of our experience with the Color Run 2012 Birmingham. It rained all day. We all got sick. And overall it was a blast. There were something like 10,000 people who showed up so we didn’t get to meet up with our friends but we did get some great photos and memories from the experience.

The last shot is Alejandro and Victoria. We didn’t get to meet up with them that day but we did spot them in the newspaper’s online gallery a few days later.

So Full, So Empty

September 15, 2012
I have never in my life felt so wrong and so right. There are so many stressful things going on right now. I don’t pray for some God to help me with them, or to take them away. There is not a guiding light to look towards. I’m just learning myself. What I can handle, what I can’t, and what I have to let go of to move forward. Each week holds some new disappointment, catastrophe, or let down of significant magnitude. We lean heavily and try not to crush each other with the pressure that bears down constantly. It’s going to end soon, just a few more months, just take it day by day, another step or two and we’ll succeed. There’s a mile long list of tasks, things to correct, people to call, packages to mail, and worries to keep us pacing the floor.

However, the grass is green where you water it. Some things are going really well.


We fixed the garage door, the basement door too. As it turns out I’m pretty handy with a drill and masonry bits. The back deck is up and looks better and is more secure than ever. The bedrooms look great. The wires are hidden to the television. The master is getting a new frame for the closet and new doors. The lights in the kitchen have been repaired and the oven too. The pantry is full and we aren’t hungry. The leaky pipe is fixed. The drains are clear.

I’m feeling more and more slender as time passes. I feel more comfortable within my body, which is very nice. My legs are strong and lean. The curvature between my waist and hips has become more extreme. For the first time in a long time, my hair is long, healthy, and it’s natural shade. I feel stronger and I’m learning to manage my time more wisely. I feel like I’m gaining more self control and learning to relax and not hold onto the things that used to set me off.
This semester has been kind. I’m making new friends who are funny and make the long hours pass by. I have teachers who are engaging and passionate. Thus far even the assignments seem to be easy, although there is a considerable amount of them. The long drive to and from is irritating at points but I’m learning to let the cool air soothe me after a long day. The gym is very nice too and the pool is such a nice relief from the hot days of an Indian summer.
The sky has been the most wonderful range of blues. The breeze is often and cool. It’s been kind to us.
I feel so solid and grounded. I have happiness every day. There is a man who loves me entirely for all that I am and all that I’m not. We’ve moved forward leaps and bounds. Everyday I feel loved, appreciated, admired, and content. So much excitement coming up, and so much to share.

Valentine’s in Gatlinburg

April 17, 2012
Warning this is about to be really photo heavy.

It’s a whale!

Poke the fishy!

They were all staring at him.

I was hanging with the fish.

Ok I guess it wasn’t that photo heavy. We went to Gatlinburg for Valentine’s day. We ate a lot of good food and had a lot of fun. We didn’t take many photos though. I guess I was behind the camera a lot. It was actually pretty disappointing in a lot of ways, just because everything was closed except for on the weekends. We do have a list of things we plan to do when we go back though.

Worth it?

January 17, 2012

Once again yesterday my ex proved just how worthless and pathetic he is. He jumped my ass about gossip he had heard from a known drug addict and liar. Firstly, stay the hell out of my business. Secondly, we’ve been apart a year. You no longer have to right to be part of my business. Thirdly, keep your opinions to yourself. I didn’t like them when we were together and I especially do not like hearing them now. So I’ll probably be changing my number soon. Time to dump the baggage.

This last year was a year of change. Getting rid of bad people in my life and incorporating some new, amazing ones. I really am so over all the bullshit and the terrible people who come with it. So were those people worth holding onto? No. Is it worth all the trouble it took to get rid of them. Yes.
