And here’s my rant for the week. I’m sure that many of you have heard about the “kids” that were not allowed to get on the plane because they were wearing leggings. Everyone, all over twitter and instagram and I’m assuming Facebook but I haven’t been on there browsing, was all up in arms about this airline telling these kids what they could and could not wear on a plane. Well then we hear the rest of the story, these kids were traveling free as guests of the airline based on employee passes that provided by the airline with some strict regulations as they are presenting the airline and expected to present themselves in a certain way. No here’s my thing. Why in the world did the woman who saw this happening and had no real idea of what was occurring think it was her place to put the incident on social media anyway? And why is the airline not allowed to place restrictions on their free perks for employees. We used to be able to do our own thing and not have everyone in the world have an opinion. Now you never know when someone is going to have an iPhone trigger finger just itching to get used. Rather then ask the girls if they were ok or find out more about the situation this person decided to just assume that something terrible was going on. So are we so terrible as a country that no matter the situation we just assume there is being an injustice and that as citizens we must complain about it or post about it on social media? The whole thing just baffled me. This person should have put their phone away and minded their own business.
Let’s remember people if someone is not physically being injured, if we are not in a position to truly assist another person we need to step back. Causing uproar when we don’t know the whole story can be far more damaging than just walking away from a situation that does not affect us in the slightest. Perhaps that sound cold but I’m pretty sure two girls wearing leggings in an airport while traveling with family is not a situation that I can do anything to assist. Now if this is a 4 year old traveling alone and she is scared I might step in, I might ask security to step in. But there is a big difference in being helpful and being a “poop stirrer”.
So having said that companies have every right to regulate how their perks are offered and make sure that the regulations they have attached are adhered to. My boss only let’s me wear jeans on Friday if I am wearing a company shirt. And while I may not always want to wear that shirt on Friday, I know that if I don’t I also can’t wear my jeans. And that is how it shall be until I own my own company and make the rules I want. But if that day never comes, I’ll keep wearing the company shirt so I can wear my jeans. And maybe next time those kids parents will make sure the read the guidelines and requirements a little more carefully to avoid such nonsense taking up space in my Twitter feed.
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend and get to wear whatever you want while you are doing it, and if you don’t get to wear whatever you want, well I hope there is a really good reason why you don’t.
So you may not have heard about it but there is a service called PrimeNow. This service is home delivery of all kinds of things that you need including groceries and even of the perishable variety.
I convinced my husband we should try it. I wanted to make bread and we were out of eggs. So I loaded the app on my phone and started hunting for stuff. There was a $20 minimum order which to my understanding can vary by location. So I found things we needed including a case of water and then decided to throw in ice cream for good measure (let’s see how melted it is when it gets here)! My order was placed at 9am and I was given a window of delivery from 10-12. I went about my day and at 11 I had a notice my delivery driver Tom was on his way and I could even track his progress on the app. He arrived at 11:20 with my groceries.
I ordered eggs they were all in great shape not a crack and still cold. The case of water was delivered without a crack in it lol! The friendly delivery man sat the water just in the door for me. And the piece de la resistance the ice cream. It came in this package:
And when opened the container was cold very cold and this is how the ice cream looked.
The app also lets you go ahead and add a tip for the delivery person which is great. None of the groceries were a higher price then I would have paid in the store. All in all this was a fantastic experience and one I would recommend.
If you have Amazon prime already this is a free service and I highly recommend giving it a shot.
Supernatural! I binge this stuff! Seriously Dean Winchester is my tv boyfriend! Haha!
Cosmo is my jam! It just makes me feel like a woman! Haha! No seriously though for women’s issues and all things beauty truly the girly bible!
Books on tape are my current jam and well James Patterson is always amazing. And this series I’m really digging!
Yep wedding! It’s all my brain can comprehend these days!
So there you have it! I nice little lately update from my little world! Hope your world is great!
So lately I have been battling not feeling well. We decided to send me to an allergist and this is what happened there.
All of those little tubes had something different to be tested. They all went into my back.
All of those little dots are the stick marks and potential allergy reactions. They were a combination of food and environmental allergens.
These were some additional allergy tests for molds.
So after all of the being stuck and poked and prodded the results came back that I was allergic to all types of mold, trees, grass, and some other environmental allergens. And that I was potentially allergic to Apples, bananas, beef, scallops, oysters, milk, and egg yolks. The doctor said that false positives for food allergies are very possible so he ran blood work to verify. This past week I got the confirmation on the blood work and I have none of those food allergies. However, I’m having reactions to some foods again and my poor weight is sky rocketing which of course is making me depressed and frustrated. My fingers are feet are seeming to remain in a state of being swollen. My poor toes.
Forgive me I need a manicure but my poor toes are like little fat sausages and it’s killing me. We have me on some supplements that seem to be helping my stomach. We shall see. But we shall continue moving forward hoping and praying that my health recovers and I feel like my old self again!
Today I’m celebrating my 36th birthday!!! I have been on this earth for 36 years. I’m proud of my age and don’t mind shouting it from the rooftops.
I was a bald baby and I was chunky and happy most of the time.
Teenage years were tough but luckily my mother continued to love me anyway!
I love fall!
I love being silly! And my smile never changes lol!
I know we shouldn’t be prideful and I know we should not always be thinking of ourselves. But today is my day and I’m going to celebrate being me because me isn’t so bad. I’m excited to have dinner with my family tonight at a new restaurant and maybe get to pick some tv for us to watch. I hope you all have a wonderful day and remember sometimes it’s nice to think of all the good things about ourselves and it’s definitely good for the soul!
Happy Memorial Day my sweet readers! A day of rememberance for all of those that have fought for our country. We remember those that lost their lives, those that lost time with family, and those that continue to give of themselves for our country. As someone who has never been in the armed forces I could not even pretend to understand the sacrifices that these men and women make in a completely unselfless way.
I know that many of us will be cooking out, spending time with friends and family, and maybe even attending a parade or two. But I hope in all of the fun times we all stop to take a minute to say thank you to those that have sacrificed for us to have our freedoms.
For any of my readers that have served, are serving or have family that served please accept my heartfelt appreciation on this and all days.
Enjoy your holiday!

My amazing Man!
He humors me. Really in all things he goes along because it makes me happy and well I’m truly truly blessed! I wanted to join these lovely ladies Betsy and Laura Jean courtesy of my awesome friend Laurie in a monthly link up celebrating the men behind our blogs. Because all of this greatness has support I assure you! So he played along with my request and these are his answers.
Would you rather have to wear your swimsuit to work or have to carry around a large beach umbrella open all day at work?
Large beach umbrella – I would hum the sound of music and quote the queen all day.
Would you rather play on an MLB team or get to tour with your favorite band all summer?
Not a huge music guy but to be with a band playing in a stadium with all those people watching would be amazing.
Would you rather go to the beach and forget your towel or go to the beach and forget your sunscreen?
Towel – I burn!
Would you rather take a week long vacation anywhere in the world or take a month long vacation but have to stay within 100 miles of home?
A month. A vacation is time away from work…the more time away, the better the vacation.
Would you rather get to have as much ice cream as you want this summer, but only be able to get vanilla or only get to have ice cream three times this summer, but you can have whatever flavors you want?
I would get unlimited vanilla and mix it with all the flavors I want. Ice cream hack!!
Is anyone else talking like the queen? And maybe thinking this guy has spent too much time getting mix-ins at culvers? Haha! Love my man!
Such a fun link up to start the long weekend. I hope you all have a great one and get to spend some great time with those you love.
