6 rules for writing a MOH speech

Hello all! I’m the lovely Lisa and bootylicious Braden’s (jk Braden doesn’t have a butt) semi successful friend, bailey. I think semi successful is a bit of a stretch but we’ll go with it.
In the midst of my crazy life, working, schooling, and a bit of teaching, I was asked to be the maid of honor in my long distance best friends wedding. We have been in this long distance friendship for nearly ten years, so what an honor right?!
I must say, being a long distance MOH (maid of honor) is tricky business. Thankfully my friend understood and didn’t expect me to fulfill all my MOH duties, which in case you didn’t know, are quite extensive. Lisa was the absolute best as she spent an entire afternoon watching me try on dress after dress so I could find the perfect bridesmaid dress that fit the requirements of the bride.

You can’t sit with us. + ANNOUNCEMENT

Prologue: I apologize in advance for the grammar of this post. I managed to turn off spell check. How this is possible, I have no idea. I’m going to blame Braden since he sent me that scary Sanskrit text that everyone has been freaking out about today. My phone has been on the fritz ever sense, I swear. 

Two points to today’s post.

Raise your hand if you can relate to today’s motivation 🙋🙋🙋
Looking back on the past few weeks, h o l y guacamole how am I still alive? Between my new job and finals and more finals this week, my brain is actually so full I can’t even believe it. BUT the end is in sight! Read More

That one time I cried in my math class

Like the title would suggest, today’s post is the story of the time that I burst into tears in my math class, after receiving my grade on my final. Mind you, this wasn’t a single tear that could be casually brushed away, this was a full on toddler-style meltdown.

Today I cried in the middle of class because my teacher handed me my test back and at the top was written 94/100.
If that’s small potatoes to you, I would like to mention that I have never got an A in a math class before. Or a B. Or a C…

Although it definitely goes in the top 5 in the list of most embarrassing things I’ve done in my life, it was totally worth it to see the look of surprise on my teachers face.
I guess most of her students are hormonally balanced, normal people who don’t cry over good grades.

Motivational Monday

As I mentioned in last week’s
Friday 5, Starbucks and I have parted ways. I’m still feeling pretty sad about it, but as a character in my formerly favorite tv show (before stupid Shonda decided to throw a major plot twist and force me to never watch never again) Ellis Grey always said “the carousel keeps on turning”, and as such, my life has to go on without my discount, and it starts today as I have my first day at my new grown up job!

Friday 5

Hi friends! Sorry for the all the quiet recently. To say that I’ve been busy would be an understatement. But I missed you and hopefully you missed me and a girls gotta eat so I’m taking a snack break from my life and blogging. Yes, I’m an advanced multi-tasker. So here we go 🙂

1) May
Am I the only one who absolutely can. not. believe. that it is already May?! I know that I say this at the beginning of every month, but it feels extra crazy that the year is pretty much halfway gone, which means summer is almost here, and before I know it summer will be over and it will be winter before I’ve even got my summer body ready.
I’m actually just kidding about the summer body part. All you gotta do to get a summer body is have a body and be present during the months of summer.
Aaaaand now I’m all distracted. The real reason I’m talking about May is because of the super funny Justin Timberlake meme that floats around this time of year, and the text about it I received from my infant 19 year old sister.
