You missed your train…


I think that’s the funny thing about life… you spend all this time wishing and hoping for this, that, or the other – thinking that eventually it’ll work out. Whatever it may be; a job, a relationship, a friendship, a new pair of shoes… anything. And then suddenly it passes you by… I don’t entirely believe in the “What’s meant to be will always find it’s way…” notion, however, I do believe that we are given, OR aren’t given certain things for a reason. And I think most of the time it’s just a reminder to stop always looking ahead {yes, we all want a full, amazing future} but to live in the now… enjoy the your time at the train station. Never know what may come of it…


We’ve made it to Wednesday – and quite quickly I might add. Make it a good one, kids.


Rain is a good thing.


I think this is a good reminder.

It’s a rainy, dreary Friday {in Ohio, anyways} but we will take it. We need the rain. After work today I’m heading home for the weekend… and I can’t wait! I haven’t been home since Memorial Day {and that’s a long time for me!}.

Hope y’all have a fantastic weekend!!



Rules of life. {Just one}

I hate when I turn the TV on and there is absolutely nothing on. Nothing. Not. A. Thing. So… Teen Mom it is. Seriously, I can’t believe this show is still on? Haven’t we seen this drama enough??? Just a few words to the ladies {and MTV}… Dear Farrah, smile. It’ll get you much further in life than those ugly scowls and shitty mood you’re always in. Dear Maci, you’re my favorite, but seriously… a “family” photo shoot… with your ex and his gf? Uh… weird. And girl, there’s such a thing as powder or those oil blotter things – it’ll soak that oil right off your face. Dear Catelynn, Kudos to you – you’ve grown up a lot since I started watching this show and dealt with things very gracefully. I can’t imagine. Dear Amber, I haven’t been paying any attention – so I really got nothing. And lastly – Dear MTV, I’m not gonna lie and I’m not ashamed to admit I really kinda enjoy Snooki & JWoww {Don’t act like you haven’t watched it – I won’t judge;)}. They’re pretty stinkin’ funny. But The Real World? I really used to love this show, and wanted to be on it but now… it just makes me feel so old. And I really, really, really don’t like that. #justmythoughts

Anyways, I’m fresh out of anything interesting to say {pretty obvious, huh}… it’s like my midweek slump. Do you have those days?

So I’ll stop rambling and leave you with this…

It’s the truth guys – never question Cinderella’s decisions but always, always, always question Snooki’s.

Happy hump day, chickies!

I’ve been thinking…

I’ve been doing some thinking lately – of things I want to do… some simple, some complex… but nonetheless they’re goals that I want to achieve.

  • Sending more snail mail – I think there’s something to be said for opening your mailbox and having something you are actually excited about. And c’mon, there’s some seriously cute stationary out there. Penpals, anyone?
  • Create a better budget – using Mint effectively so I can stay on track and get things paid off – it’s a very handy tool. And make a list of a couple things I want to splurge on for the month – to reduce impulse purchases. This month: running shoes, a new bag, pretty stationary to achieve above goal, and a good planner. {but more on those later ;)} I think this will help curb my buying just to buy thing. Like workout clothes – I convince myself that I need new, but in reality, once I cleaned out my drawers, I really have plenty.
  • Make my blog pretty. I want a more “me” design. Anyone wanna help a girl out???
  • Get back to the gym – my goal is to get to the gym 4 days a week, a day or two of yoga by way of Jillian Michaels and my living room, and a day off. I’m not going to go hardcore thinking I’ll make it to the gym everyday – that’s just asking for failure.
  • Set up “date” nights with some of my friends that I rarely see because “life just gets too crazy” – I think it’s important to slow down and grab some coffee, ice cream, or a beer with some of your dearest friends. And I need to get better at it.
  • Write. I used to write a lot – like actual writing in a paper journal – I miss that. It’s so therapeutic to me. Sewing and writing are my therapies. They both allow me to clear my head, but in two very different ways. I need to get back to them.

What are some of your goals? How do you stay motivated and focused??

Want to be penpals??? 😉

Happy Tuesday, dolls! Hope it rocks your socks off – if you have socks on – which would be weird – cause it’s hotter than the sun around here lately. 😉

Wednesday Thoughts. {why I love my friends.}

This is why I love my friends. They’re the best. Seriously, y’all should be jealous. 😉

Happy hump day, people!

p.s. I leave for NC tomorrow and I’m SOOOOOOOOOO excited to be reunited with one of my favorite places. Don’t fret, I have some fabulous ladies guest posting on here so stay tuned 😉

Good Intentions.

I have massively failed at blogging this month – it’s been an uber busy month {I CAN NOT believe it’s almost over} and I’ve been crazily uninspired – and there’s nothing worse than that feeling. I hate it. But I’m promising right now to change that. I’m spending my day working on getting this little blog organized {thank you, Allie and your fabulous ideas!} and back in working order.

So stay on the look out – I promise June will be a MUCH better month around Messy Hair and Cowboy Boot-land. 😉

Hope y’all had a wonderful and relaxing Memorial Day weekend.

She sees the world through coral lenses… {Pinteresting Tuesday}

I need these pants.

I'm intrigued. Mint, blood orange, whiskey sour.

Coral. Coral. Coral. Do not be surprised if I sport something similar very, very soon.

Matte. Coral. Stripes.

Beyond true.

Coral and Orange.

Great use of a small place... and I adore the coral/blue room.

Words I try to live by.

Coral. I absolutely adore this color. It’s timeless.

Happy Tuesday, sweets. Don’t forget to stop over and see what my sweet friend, Beth in pinning this week!

Pinteresting. {Inspired by Watermelons.}

Who doesn’t love these colors? I didn’t realize how much I loved them until I kept finding myself drawn to this color combination. I think it’s very fresh, classic, and so versatile. There are several shades of pink and green and I think that’s what makes them so fun to put together. You can go very muted with a mauve{esque} pink and an olive green {like my bedding} to vibrant neon pink and green {like my nails}. I’m feeling so inspired to use these colors in various projects right now. Apparently, I just can’t get enough of them.

And I must give credit where credit is due – I may not love pink and green as much if it weren’t for my favorite fruit in the universe. The watermelon. Let’s pay homage, folks.

Do you have a color combination you gravitate to more so than others?

Happy Tuesday, Cupcakes!

Don’t forget to head to Beth’s bloggity blog and see what has been inspiring her this week!
