Hey friends! I hope you’re doing well 🙂 I wanted to pop in and share a quick post with you because as you may or may not know, I had my tonsillectomy this week and I’m in the thick of it with the recovery process. Today (as I’m writing this) is day 3 post op and the doctor said that the first couple of days after surgery I’d feel like I got this, no big deal. But that after that it would get a whole lot worse before it would get better.
The other day I was on InstaStories and was talking a whole bunch. My mom was over here keeping me company and I was chatting away. Well today if I don’t have anything to say, I’m not saying a word. I’m very much aware that my throat was recently cut up and I’m proceeding with caution. Since I’m still at the beginning of my recovery, if I have anything to share regarding my recovery I’ll share that in a future post once I’ve actually made it to the other side 🙂
One of the things I’ve loved over the past few weeks on Instagram are the Instagram Story Templates. I’ve shared a few and decided to save some of them so I can share them on my blog. I love little quizzes and get to know me style things, so much fun!
Before I go into the fun of the Instagram Stories I wanted to share this pic from some little thing going around on Facebook from a month or so ago…
Look at her! 🙂 I’m looking hella good if I do say so myself! A few things about this picture… 1) I kinda look like I belong on RuPaul’s Drag Race! But my face is beat so whatever 😉 2) I’m loving the lipstick color. I can admit that I stay inside of a box when it comes to experimenting with color but this makes me say bring on all the colors cause I’m here for it! 3) Although I would never get one, this makes me want a nose job haha. Not for real for real but maybe I can achieve this with some great contouring skills.
Okay moving on…
The day will soon come where I am doing what I love on a full time level and that’s blogging. You watch. And oh my word I swear I see people on their phones driving ALL OF THE TIME and it makes me so angry!! Like why do you think you can do that? Why are you putting me and the others around you in danger? What you’re saying/doing/scrolling whatever can’t possibly wait for you to get to a red light at least?
When I see you on your phone I honk the horn at you and I’ve seen so many people jump like they’re scared. Oh now you’re scared? Smh.
If there was a fourth option it would be the crying laughing emoji.
I don’t share my food that often…I mean I will if we’re trading but I usually am not prone to sharing my food. If we’re at a restaurant and we got different things then I’ll offer him a bite but that’s as far as it goes with sharing of the food.
Oh how I miss Philly. I spent so much of my childhood in Philadelphia and I have wanted to take my kids up there since forever. One day I will and I can experience the city from the aspect of a tourist.
Is there really any smell better than a baby? Or a fresh load out of the dryer when washed in Dreft? Or your man? lol
I definitely want to visit a lot more states. I don’t know about every state in the country but I do want to see the majority.
Speaking of travel…one state I do want to visit as soon as I can is Hawaii! I think it’s worth being on the plane for hours and hours to experience that paradise. Specifically Maui is on the top of my list.
Sometimes I hate choosing between two options on “would you rather” things. For example I love strength training, but I also love sweating with cardio. I love both Netflix and YouTube but I definitely go through phases where I prefer one over the other.
Fun Fact: I’ve seen both TLC and Destiny’s Child in concert in person. TLC was my first concert ever, my dad took me to it one of my summers in Philly. I saw Destiny’s Child when they first came out as a group, so it was the original group. They were the opening act for Outkast.
I was trying to explain to someone the other day what Skip It was and I was like how do you not know what that is? What a difference a few years makes in age right? I couldn’t tell you what Rocket Power is but I know what Hey Arnold is.
Back in college I would cringe when I would see girls go to class in their pajamas. I could never understand that. I don’t care if you just woke up, you can change your clothes ma’am. Now we can get away with leggings and yoga pants but I still wouldn’t go out the house in straight up pajamas. Nope, not happening.
Confession: I’ve never had guacamole. Like technically I have in a seven layer dip but I’ve never had it with chips or something. It’s on my “to try” list this year.
On that note, I’m going to grab some ice cream and wrap up this post. Me and ice cream have been besties these past few days 🙂
Also, in my last post I shared what’s on my iPhone and that was for my iPhone 6 which I had had for way too long. I finally upgraded and got my new iPhone 8 Plus!!! I am absolutely in love with my new phone! I debated for months on if I should get the 64GB or the 264GB size and decided to get the 64GB size. That’s already 4 times more space than my old phone had. I can tell such a huge difference in the quality of my pics and videos and I can’t wait to share some awesome pictures for the Parade of Homes tour this year that’s coming up in a couple of weeks 🙂 Be sure to stay tuned, and subscribe to my emails so you won’t miss a post!
