Today was a Bad Day.

Sorry Ice Cube, it wasn't happening today.

It was most definitely NOT a good day. Have you ever had one of those days where everything is getting on your nerves and nothing is going the way that it should and no matter what you do, someone ends up mad at you? Ever had a day that you just KNEW couldn't get any worse, and then it does? Yeah, that was my day.

So, while I still have some kind of composure, I'd like to give one last shout out to May 23, 2013:

Throwback Thursday, Anniversary Style!

So, today is Throwback Thursday in the social media world, and I'm taking a personal spin on it. Yesterday was me and Hubs' 3rd anniversary. 3 years ago we were newlyweds. Time sure does fly! To celebrate, I want to take it back with a few pictures of our lives together. Looking through these pictures brought me so many memories and made me so happy that I ended up with the man that I did. I sure do love him. 

I tried to put these in chronological order. We were such babies when we started dating back in June of 2005. It's been a wild ride, but we still love each other, thank goodness! I couldn't imagine life without him.

What I'm Listening to Wednesday

I have no idea if this is a thing or not, but I'm going with it. I love me some music and my favorite songs change about three times a month, so I need to document my jams-of-the-moment while it's still that moment. Ya heard?

Mariah Carey feat. Miguel - Beautiful. MiMi's back and it's everything I wanted it to be.

Olly Murs - Dear Darlin'. I wasn't sure how I would feel about his second song, it being more of a ballad and all, but I really like it. It's kind of refreshing after Troublemaker.

Florida Georgia Line - Get Your Shine On. I love these guys. And I'm also pretty sure this is about moonshine. Can someone confirm, please? And can someone hook me up too? Kidding! Not really.

Ariana Grande feat. Mac Miller - The Way. Not gonna lie, the first time I heard this, I was not expecting these 2 to be the artists. LOVE IT. LOVE THEM. Love it all!

Luke Bryan - Crash my Party. Luke, if you'll just give me those digits I will totally crash all of your parties. Just sayin.

What are you listening to this week?

The Most Wonderful Place on Earth

Well, for a redneck, maybe! Last week I told everyone that I would be going to Talladega this past weekend. Well, I had a BLAST! If you've never camped out at a NASCAR race, you are truly missing out on one of the more exciting things in life! Every year I look forward to going, making new friends and hanging out with the old ones. Every year is another adventure and hilarious things seem to follow the rednecks around with the help of a little friend we all have named "alcohol". Here's some pictures! 

Hubs and I on Friday. Check out the reflection in my glasses. Can't leave camp without the Bud Light, baby. 
My cousin, me and Hubs. Apparently we wandered into AJ McCarron's grandpa's RV.  Go drunk us! 
My cousin and our Mississippi friend we met 2 years ago at Dega. Yes, that's the 'shine. 
Free infield concert this year was Chris Young. It was AWESOME.
My cousin and I at the concert. Never leave home without a koozie. And never come to Dega without a raincoat.
Finally we watched some racing! That sweet hat that hubs has on,  you can get here. SPEED POWER PASSION!
How else would you watch a cold and rainy race? With a beer and rain boots, of course! 
We had so much fun this year (and may have gotten rained on just enough) that we might even go back for the fall race! I can't wait! What did you do last weekend??

Oh, and PS - The winner of the Sprint Cup race? David Ragan! He's from 20 minutes south of where I grew up! I was so proud!

Stepping Into Spring Swap

Last month, I did a swap over at Ricci Explains it All called "Stepping Into Spring". Basically, you got a partner and bought each other flip flops and toenail polish! Cute, right? Well, my partner and I both have problems keeping up with dates (thank goodness) and we were a little late in getting everything together for each other. Glad we had something in common right of the bat! I was paired with Elizabeth @ The Young Retiree and we actually had quite a lot in common! She goes to baseball games, she has started running and she's from the South! I knew immediately what I was going to get her when I started reading her blog!

Now, without further ado, here's what Elizabeth sent me:

I came home to find a box in the mail and I opened it up to see some BRIGHT pink tissue paper! LOVE IT!

Right on top there was a sweet note from Elizabeth. If you haven't gone to her blog yet, you should!

Then, I saw my new flip flops! They are bright pink and the bottoms are neon green! They SCREAM Tasha. I couldn't believe how well she nailed my personality right on the head. I've already worn them like 5 or 6 times. Whether they've matched or not!

And here's my nail polish that she sent me! A bright orange and a bright coral! I love both of those colors!!

And, as an added bonus, she sent me some freaking Lindt chocolate. She's knows the way to my heart! YUM!

It's been a great experience! I've loved reading Elizabeth's blog and ya'll should really go check it out too! Go go go!

Shake and Bake, Baby!
