as my uncle alfred says, "it's okay!"

it's thursday. 
you know the deal.
{if not, you better recognize.}
get your booty over to a complete waste of makeup {neely has a new domain so make note of it!} OR brunch with amber and link up for...

Its Ok Thursdays

it's okay...

...that my algebra professor was fired. the new professor is fabulous {and now i actually understand the material}.

...to feel a bit stressed about school. not only am i trying to juggle my work load, but i'm also helping my husband jump through all of the paperwork hoops so he can start taking classes in the spring.

...to listen to "brass monkey" by the beastie boys while your kids are in the car {seriously, my minivan was thumpin' & bumpin' down the road}.

...that the only reason your kids recognized the beastie boys/song is because a) your daughter watches just desserts and remembers when ad-rock was a guest judge and b) your son says, "oh, that was the name of the beer from the just desserts pantry!" {i guess there goes my chance to win mommy of the year...}

...to think to yourself {while rocking out to "brass monkey"}, "how neat. i was their age when i first heard this song." {the "licensed to ill" album was released in 1986. i was nine years old. and, yes, i had a copy.}*

...to want to say, "yo baby, wassup?!" {i blame brass monkey.}

...that i've been spending a little too much money lately. at least some christmas presents have been purchased. in addition, material to make some christmas presents have been purchased as well.

...to feel defeated after spending hours on what seemed like the worst assessment i've ever taken. seriously, y'all, the midterm for one of my education classes {an assessment class, no less!} was brutal. brutal because it sucked, not because i didn't know the material.

...to be excited for saturday night's girls night. we get together every october to celebrate our friendship. click here to read about our first date. click here to read about our first anniversary. click here to see how our group has grown.

...to feel kind of nervous about wearing a dress to girl's night on saturday. y'all, i'm almost always in jeans. but, my sweet friend & partner in {shopping} crime yanked me out of my comfort zone. how? we shopped at forever 21 where i not only purchased a dress, but leggings, too. {and i don't ever shop at forever 21.}

...that i miss my long hair. not gonna lie about this. i miss wearing a pony tail. 

...if you haven't entered my orly nail polish giveaway yet. you still have time. the winner will be announced on october 28th.

...that i really should be working on homework instead of writing this blog post.


*before you get all cray-cray on me, my parents were pretty relaxed about my musical choices growing up. i was a good kid, made good grades, didn't cause trouble or get into trouble. they really appreciated the fact that my sister & i had very eclectic taste in music and did not censor our choices. i am the same way with my children. there are some groups, songs, etc. that i prefer them not to hear or listen to, but for the most part they listen to what adam & i listen to. music is a form of expression. it's an art. i want my children to appreciate it and all genres of it.

Brass Monkey...such a great song. I remember listening to the License to Ill album along with Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots all summer long while being by my friends pool. Good times!

I'm glad you finally have an algebra teacher that you actually understand!

I hope Saturday night was fun :)
