Creeping it Real: Therapy style.

I know not many people blog about their issues but oh well, w/e. I get pretty bad anxiety that stems from my own personal fears (Well, obviously, right? considering that's how anxieties develop!). I didn't start to go to therapy till November of last year. BUT I honestly don't know where I'd be without it. Therapy helps me a great deal. Makes me feel not so kookoo and helps me develop coping skills (like mediation and yoga) for my anxiety. It's a nice safe space to unload and vent all my fears, frustrations, issues, and of course, relish in the good times as well. I never really thought much of therapy and always kind of side-eyed it but now I feel like a fool for ever thinking those things. Therapy is such a great tool for everyone. IDGAF if you're a happy person or not. It's just nice to have an 100% neutral space to speak in and to have healthy and helpful feedback. To be honest, I feel like I'll be in therapy for the rest of my life but it doesn't even bother me. I consider it a safe space and a positive tool in my life.

Ps: Plus, these lil fuzzy creepers can be just as helpful as a therapy session! :)

Anyways, that's my .02 for the day! Hope everyone is having a great week. Happy Hump Day!

Music Monday: 5 songs I'm digging as of l8 Pt II.

Here's some tunes I've been listening to this week:

Family Fued, Pistol Annie's.
I am a huge fan of Miranda Lambert and this band is her, Ashley Monroe, and Angaleena Presley. I keep their album in rotation daily. I'd say it's a guilty pleasure but it's not, I'm not embarrassed. I wish they would just tour up here ALREADY!!!! The only song I really don't care for on their album is "Beige".

My Hips Don't Lie, Shakira Ft. Wyclef Jean
I know this song is like 5 years old but w/e w/e w/e. My coworker burned me like 3 cds and one was labeled "guilty pleasures". THAT CD SPOKE TO ME. Her guilty pleasures pretty much line up with mine. It was ah-maz-ing. I plan on turning it into a gym mix tbh but anyways, this song was on it and I was just like O HELL YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Own Worst Enemy, Lit
I LOVE 90'S MUSIC. I mean who doesn't really, right? I still love Lit, IDGAF. Their music gets me pumped. This song especially.

Teenage Dirtbag, Wheatus
Whenever I'm at the bar and it has a juke box, you best believe I'm playing this motherfucking song. This and some Hall and Oates jam. No shame. I love this song so fucking much. It pumps me up too. It's so fun to get drunk and sing-a-long to. Plus, it's in my all time favorite romcom, Loser, with Mena Suvari and Jason Biggs. IF you haven't seen it, get on that shit ASAP. I'm pretty sure it's on Instant Watch, just sayin'....

and last but not least,

You're the Storm, The Cardigans
The Cardigans seemed to have died out after "Lovefool" but this song is so fucking good.

What jams are listening to these days?

Friday Favorites.

Show: Everwood. I just finished it this morning. Bittersweet. Now what am I going to watch when I come home from work or when I lay in bed all day?!

I will never forgive them for killing off Irv, though. HOW CAN THEY DO THAT TO EDNA??????

Song: Blue Jeans, Lana Del Rey.

I know this song has been around for awhile but I can't get enough of her. She is a flawless goddess. I've been listening to her on my way home from work or on my way to pick up Matt.

Drink: Blue Hawaiian. JUST LOOK AT IT. 'Nuff said.

Photo from here.

1 ounce silver (light) rum
1 ounce blue Curacao
1 ounce cream of coconut, such as Coco Lopez
2 ounces pineapple juice
Fresh pineapple wedge
Maraschino cherry

Fill a large glass with ice. Fill half a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the rum, Curacao, cream of coconut, and pineapple juice to the shaker. Shake well. If you want it frozen: Blend the liquid ingredients with 1 cup crushed ice in a blender until smooth and then strain the cocktail into the glass. Garnish with the pineapple and cherry.

Grub: I love me some shrimp tacos like an ungodly amount. If it wasn't frowned upon to eat shrimp more than 2-3x a week, I think I could eat it daily. And who can resist it paired with chipotle? I AM CHIPOTLES #1 FAN. If I could stalk chiptole, I would.

Chipotle Shrimp Tacos w/Pineapple-Mango Salsa found on Elise's Kitchen.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Music Monday: 5 songs I'm digging as of l8.

People always ask me what music I'm into and I just sit/stand there in shock with this dumb look on my face and usually all that comes out is, "....I listen to A LOT of Hall and Oates and I MEAN A LOT....". So, I figured I'd tune (ha-ha) into what jams I'm feeling lately and post em. So here's round one:

Flo Rida ft. Sia "Wild Ones" (I Know, I know...... I love me some top 40 tho so if you gunna h8, you can click da x to the far right, buh bye)

When I'm in a bummer mood, I always cruise over to YouTube and watch this (Grieves ft. Buda, Pack it up), I love the song and the video is cute. Big Thanks to my girl, Sarah, who introduced this man to me.

I know this song is EVERY-WHERE. My coworker even included it on the playlist at work but it never fails to get stuck in my head. I prefer this cover though than the original (Gotye).

I'm almost too embarrassed to even post this song but ... PARTY & BULLSHIT AND PARTY & PARTY.

And last but not least...

Hall & Oates, Maneater. DO I EVEN HAVE TO EXPLAIN WHY I LOVE THIS SONG?????????

Well shit, that's a lot of ~top 40~ hits...

What songs are you feelin' lately?

While I appreciate my friends and my boyfriend, I appreciate my fuzzy creepers as well. I have two cats and a pooch. I've had Annie the longest and she's my cross-eyed bb cat. Then I adopted Hank as a birthday present for my boyfriend (but more so for Annie, she needed a friend). Hank is the true pet, he's perf. The sweetest little lovebug, ever. Then I was going through a really hard time and decided a dog would make things better and that's when I got Darby! She's a whippet mix and my bff. She can't control her licker (any opportunity she has, she'll stick her tongue in your mouth or ears, gross) for shit which can be annoying but she's still my luv ♥. I pretty much live in an animal house but I wouldn't want it any other way.

♥ ♥ ♥

Ps: Darby turned into a true dog today. She learned how to play fetch! Even if you have to pry the ball out of her mouth.

Oh my god, is she talking about something other than food for once?!

So, I figured I should probably talk about something other than food so yall' don't think I'm just nothing but an alcoholic fatty. Other than food and tequila, I spend a lot of my time lying in bed with my dog, marathoning TV. Specifically, my guilty pleasure TV. Right meow, I'm marathoning Everwood. Now don't h8, cause this show is I am in luv with Dr. Brown. I think it's the beard. I have a thing for facial hair. Especially, a rugged ass thick beard. I also kind of have a soft spot for the doofy ass Bright Abbott. I really don't care much for Ephram but I do like him and Amy together and I still can't believe his baby ass self got Madison pregnant. YOU FOOL. WEAR A CONDOM AND GET SOME PLAN B JUST INCASE. Maybe, plan b didn't exist in 2003, though... and if it did, I sure as hell didn't know it did.

But like really.... how could you not love Bright?

Same here, Bright. Same here. I just want to lay in bed and watch TV.

Anyways, it's only four seasons long and I'm already on 3. I kind of want to weep that I'm so close to the end and then comes another conundrum WHAT AM I GOING TO WATCH???? THANKFULLY, Netflix comes to the rescue with Dawson's Creek on Instant Watch. Oh ya know, just spending my summer living in the early 00's.

Everwood knows what's up tho.

Ps: Lena Dunham's Girls is another guilty pleasure of mine and last night's episode was 2 fucking funny. l-o-l
