Hey guys!

So I know I’ve been lacking in being around on here the last couple of weeks. School is really getting hard lately, and I barely have time to sleep let alone blog. I should be back on here around Mid December, but until then, if you want to follow me here are a few places you can find me:

Oh life!

I miss summer time.
I miss being able to sleep in and not feel bad.
I miss having time to have fun and not worry
about the chapter I have to read for class.
I miss being able to relax when the weekend came.

These are the feelings I’ve been having lately.
I’m loving school, and the classes I’m taking,
but I’m really starting to get behind in everything.

I keep forgetting to read for class until the last
minute, and then I run out of time. I try to practice
a lot at school, but sometime it doesn’t feel like it’s enough.

I wish there were 48 hours in a day just so I could
get more done and still be able to function.
My schedule for the week is get up at 530 AM,
get ready, drive 45 minutes to get to school, and
leave school at the latest 645 PM, drive
back home 45 minutes, eat and be in the
bed (hopefully) at 930 PM and then
repeat the whole process again the next day.

When I get home all I want to do is sleep.
I try to get stuff done at school, but I tend to
talk too much to my friends at school. I really think
I need to find a quiet place away from the world
and get my shit done lol.

Sorry for this vent, I just wanted you to know
that 1) I’m still alive, and 2)I’m crazy busy over here.

I miss y’all!

Things I Love Thursday

1 Sep

Today’s TILT post is all about Roller Derby

I’ve recently bacame a cheerleader for the

local Roller Derby team. I think I’ve talked

about this already. I’m loving all things derby.


Aren’t they so cute??

1. Deer on Skates This is so adorable!!

2. Derby Tank These are our colors 😀

3. Ruby Red Booty Shorts Glitter + Derby = Amazing!!

4. Roller Derby Tutu This is my favorite! I love the colors!

Please go and check out these items/shops 😀

I’d love to know your favorites!



Youtube Wednesday

31 Aug
I’ve found another tutorial for y’all for

today’s YouTube Wednesday.

I used to watch the videos from Threadbanger

religiously. I was very sad to see them go, but

Corrine has returned with videos through

Craft magazine.

I love shoes, and am broke. This is a great tutorial

to add a little bling to your life.

Speaking of bling, I’m going to be updating my shop

hopefully in the next week or so.



Foodie Tuesday

30 Aug
This is going to be a new blog series for me.

My doctor recently told me that I need

to give up bread and pastas, and need

to eat more veggies and fruits.

Sounds simple right? Wrong!! You see,

I LOVE bread and pastas. She did tell me

that I could eat whole grain bread so it’s

not the end of the world, but does make things

a bit more difficult. Well in hopes of

making myself as well as my family a bit

healthier, I’ve decided to start cooking

a bit more at home rather than

2-3 times a week. We usually eat out most

of the week, so this too will be a struggle.

My hopes for this blog is to keep myself

from falling back into that rut of eating out.

I’m going to try to keep myself accountable by

posting a recipe that I’ve found, or tweaked

and tried to make. It will be like a

review of the new recipes I try.

If you have any recipes that you think I would like,

please email me at lilcoop1@gmail.com with

the subject “Blog Recipes.” This is going to be

an adventure for me, and I want you to come along

with me 😀

I will start posting new recipes next Tuesday



p.s. did I mention I really love food. I love

trying new things.

Music Monday

29 Aug
And I’m back!!!

Did you miss me? because I missed you!!

So for today’s MM, I’m playing The Who.

The Who is by far one of my favorite bands.

I know most of their hits, I love the movie

Tommy. (Seriously y’all need to see it

if you haven’t!)

The song is Baba O’Riley (AKA Teenage Wasteland)

This is my favorite song by them mostly

for the violin solo at the end. It sounds very

gypsy-like and just amazing. One day

I will be able to play that part lol.

The Who – Baba O’Riley



p.s. Roger Daltrey was so pretty back then, and

is one of the few that still does (in my opinion).

Seriously, go google him.

Hey guys!!!!

24 Aug

I just wanted to give y’all a quick update on what has been going on lately. I started back to college on the 15th. All of my classes are really amazing 🙂 I’ve made a few friends. They are all super nice.

I’ve really been missing blogging and Etsy bad. Between school, derby, and being with Travis, I don’t have a whole lot of time for much else. I’m hoping I can work on that. Maybe I will try once a week blogging and get everything for Etsy sorted out on the weekends.

I miss you guys so much. I promise here will be a bigger post about school than this. I just wanted to let y’all know that I’m still alive over here
