my life sucks

Typical Week Day:

630am: 1st alarm, press snooze
645am: 2nd alarm, press snooze
700am: 3rd alarm press snooze
715am: 4th alarm press snooze
730: 5th alarm... begrudgingly and painfully get out of bed. Stumble into walls and into bathroom.
735am: Shower... face wash, shampoo, conditioner, soap, rinse. Brush teeth, put contacts in.
750am: Makeup
800am: Hair
815a: Leave for work
830-845am - check email, make coffee, take 2 tylenol
845-930am - morning meetings at work - given work that is not my responsibility. Belittled by various superiors.
930am-1230pm - assessments, family meetings, discharge planning, returning phone calls, get yelled at by various family members
1230-100pm - lunch, take 3 tylenol
1pm-5pm - miscellaneous family drama, paperwork, phone calls, more being a human dumpster, take 3 more tylenol
5-530pm - work/drive home
530-800 pm - dinner, watch TV, drink wine
8-10pm - watch hulu/netflix, take ambien
10-1030- fall asleep and dream about work

So yea.... i miss cooking and taking pictures and being a happy person but as you can see it's just not happening right now. On weekends I try to do as little as possible. I consider it a success if i don't have to wear makeup or do my hair. Does anyone else's life suck?

Inspiration: Pink

So my inspiration photo file was getting a bit large so I figured I would do a purge..a pink purge. I think a lot of people stay away from pink as it is considered too little girl or sorority sister. Some of these photo's are super girly and some and just right as accents! Just a little photospiration!

I Have a Twin.

So this girl at work, she always tells me I remind her of her sister. ALWAYS. And I'm all like "oh yea haha". Well she sent me a picture of her sister and HOLY CRUD. It is like complete twilight zone. If I saw this on my page I would think it was a picture of me from like 2008. FREAKY.

Palmetto Macaroni and Cheese

This stuff is so good! The recipe came from the grocery store!

1 lb macaroni
1 - 12oz tub pimento cheese (obviously this uses the specific brand in the recipe and I used half jalapeno and half regular)
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup flour
2 cups milk
salt and pepper to taste

1. Cook macaroni until tender (about 12 mins) then drain and set aside
2. Melt butter in saucepan, stir in flour until combined
3. Cook mixture for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally
4. Add milk and stir until mixture is dissolved
5. Stir until thickened, once thickened add 1 cup of pimento cheese and remove from heat
6. Stir until combined, add salt to taste.
7. Add macaroni and sauce in 9x13 pan and bake at 350 until bubbly.
