Miscellaneous Monday

i haven't been this tired after a weekend in a loooooong time!
this week i want to give yall more about me along with my normal posts. i always enjoy reading about my bloggers i love so i wanted to share more. today i'm starting it off with a get to know me guest post and giveaway over at yellow umbrella. she's the great designer of my blog so make sure to give her some love!!!!

alright enough about that.
onto my randoms.
there are always the randoms.

[1]this weekend i learned that i'm not as young as i used to be! we spent saturday moving my sil into her new apt in austin and that night went out on 6th street. getting back at 3:30am does not make for a friendly kristen come sunday morning. it was a blast but man i don't rebound the same. all day sunday was blah. 

[2]we are in the home stretch till we move into our house and i'm getting more and more excited! started furniture shopping this weekend. cannot wait!

[3]i got my birchbox and my mystery julep box in saturday so when i got home sunday i had a nice surprise!

[4]i'm terrified i won't find a teaching job and school starts in two weeks. i'm freaked.

[5]i love hamburgers. i just do. they are so delicious and i crave weekly. and i don't even eat much red meat anymore..

[6]i'm a diet coke addict. have been since high school. this week i made the decision to give it up....its just not healthy to drink two a day.

[7]has anyone done crossfit?? i'm intrigued. i think i would die but it looks so cool.

[8]i'm looking forward to telling you all about me over the next week!

[9]the big giveaway over at texas love birds that i'm a part of is still going on!

[10]i try to be cool and take pics of myself. unsuccessfully!!! 

hope you enjoyed my ramblings for the day!!! and don't forget to check out my guest post today!!!


  1. I love good mail days! Going out is exhausting and you were a trooper for lasting until 3:30 in the morning. I go out til 11:30 at night and I'm pooped, but I can stay up til 2 in the morning as long as I'm enjoying the comforts of home! Have a great week and hang in there with the teaching position! Positive thoughts!

  2. I'm trying to give up Diet Coke right now, too! It's not easy. Good luck with finding a teaching position - fingers crossed!

  3. Good luck with the teaching position sweetie you will find something. I love burgers too I have been experimenting with them adding all kinds of stuff to them, I eat them bunless though.

  4. My husband is having the same trouble with #4. And he's the only one working, so we really need this. He had one, but they let him go due to funding. They've done this the past few years because of no funding. Hope you find something!

    1. Oh, I'm your newest follower from Monday Meet Up.

  5. So glad I found you!!!! I am your newest follower :)

  6. I am totally with you on the teaching job. I taught first grade this past year, but didn't get the job until almost a month after school had already started. Unfortunately for me, that meant I was on a one year contract and now I am in the same position as I was last year...Job hunting again. My advice would be to keep applying, but also to sub for the county that you are trying to work for. It will get you in the system already and if you don't get anything by the time school starts [my fingers are crossed that you will though!! :)] you can get yourself out there in to the schools that you're interested in! Wow, sorry that was so long, but I definitely know where you're coming from. Don't give up!
