Geekery of the Month: What. The. FLOCK!?!

What. The. FLOCK!?!

 

I am so obsessed with flamingos right now, which is really surprising me. First of all I kinda hate pink, like some times it’s ok, but in general it doesn’t even enter my mind when asked what my favorite color is. Second I actually really don’t like flamingos. This makes this so weird right? Well it’s more the spirit of the flamingos I’m in love with, or at least how they have been ‘rebranded’ such as “Zero Flocks Given” “Stand Tall Darling” or “Be A Flamingo in a Flock of Pigeons.” Those are all ideas I can get behind, flamingos also celebrate summer, and I am SO READY for summer. Not the working part, but the weather part. I love heat, sun, loud music, and good vibes!

Life Lately: May

It feels like I just sat down to write April’s Life Lately, this year is just flying by! In April I was boughed down with a ton of work, which is good, not complaining but I didn’t get to do a lot. So far in May I’ve had a good break from it all, but I am working this weekend, and I have a very busy two weeks coming up. I am VERY excited about the projects that I am working on, and I hope to share my projects very soon. I can’t share what I’m working on right now because the final product needs to be announced by my clients first, as it should be, then I will be over the moon to share with all of you.

Spring Sweet Progress Box Swap

 

It’s time for another Swap Box! I love doing the seasonal Sweet Progress swap that is hosted by Ashley from Happy Pretty Sweet and Dean from Mrs. AOK, A Work In Progress. I love doing this swap because I always meet such amazing ladies, with fantastic blogs. Normally I see the post to sign up, but April was a crazy hot mess for me and I wasn’t on social media nearly as often as I normally am. I am so glad Ashley reached out to me for the swap!

Life Lately: April 2017

Holy Moly! March went by so fast, and it feels like April is just as fast. March I was sick for a soild two weeks so that gave me some time on my hands (and lost of naps). It also happened to be when Mass Effect Andromeda was released so I played the crap out of it. Now that I experienced that trip, I’m making my way through the Kingdom Heart games again since the Final Mix came out. Depending on how I feel when I finish those up I might try Kingdom Hearts 2.8, I’m just not to sure how critical it is to going into Kingdom Hearts III (if and when that finally comes out).

Geekery of the Month: Simply Succulent

Simply Succulent

 

Spring is here and I have been completely obsessed with succulents! They are so dreamy, and they are adorable, and fit into my tiny apartment so very easily. Fun fact, I currently own succulents, but none are living. That’s right, I own fake plants, and I’m proud of that. I tend to forget to water things so fake plants tend to be my go to. I did have a succulent last year and I ended up killing it because of over watering….? I’m guessing. I honestly don’t know how it died.

Who Said Anything About A Sidekick?

So maybe a droid isn’t a sidekick, or maybe they are? I guess it depends on the role they play. As you can probably tell this weeks theme is droids! I loosely interpreted Droid to include all robots and AI. This post also made me  realize I don’t read much sci-fi cause I couldn’t think of a book other than Hitchhikers Guide that had a robot/AI in it.

I’m personally looking forward to the day we have AI and Droids to help with daily tasks. Until then we have all these cool droids and AI’s to dream about:

It’s Never to Late for Yoda, Santa!

In honor of St. Patty’s Day, today’s prompt for 5 Fandom Friday is to share 5 green themed photos. I don’t do a whole lot with green, it’s just not a color in my wheel house. So I hopped on my instagram and went back through my photos, and these are the five with the most green in them:

  • Top Left: “Isn’t he cute!! Spotted this little guy while I was helping my mom set up for a holiday show she’s doing over the weekend.” After I found this one, I found his herd, then as they finished setting up for the holiday show these guys were everywhere! But they are still adorable!
  • Top Right: “A night full of amazing food, good people, and tons of laughter. Oh and of course coffee!” Also my boyfriend is very jealous of this coffee mug. When I was visiting Kat & her amazing family, it wasn’t really near Christmas…
  • Under Top Right: “Dinner tonight: honey glazed chicken with snap peas and rice.” Mmm delicious! Can’t wait for snap peas to be in season again! Nothing better than fresh, locally sourced food!
  • Bottom Left: “So much nom nom is happening is the fields right now!” Blueberry season is my favorite out of all the berries we do. I love walking around in the fields grazing, lol.
  • Bottom Right: “Today I got the most beautiful postcard from @thecheerupgirls “she believed she could & so she did” is one of my favorite quotes. This is just what I need after such a long week of work.” Still have the post card, and that is still one of my very favorite quotes. For me it’s just a little reminder of how much of a fighter I am.

I hope you all have a happy & safe St. Patty’s Day! 

Life Lately: March

96cb1731882d097cff8ac94ab6604607February just flew by! I can’t believe it’s March already, but I think Oregon hasn’t gotten the memo yet. I woke up this morning to snow. I like snow, but I’m ready for Spring, mostly because I want to wear flip flops again!  This is going to be a bit of a long post, a lot happened in the last month! So grab a cup of coffee and let’s get started!

Give Me That Coffee!

screen-shot-2017-03-03-at-12-45-18-pmIf there is one thing you should know about me it’s that I love coffee. I swear I’m 90% caffeine 10% water. So as any avid coffee lover, I have my favorite places to get coffee. I live in a small town so we don’t have that many options, but what we do have is good enough for me. It’s always a bonus getting to support small local business rather than any corporation, so any time I can do that, I do. Which means there’s a great chance you won’t have any idea of these places I’m talking about! Well except two- maybe. 😉
