inspiration : may moods {2013}

Hi y'all! I've been wanting to do another moods post, but it seemed silly to do an April moods post when May was literally, just around the corner. So... I've been waiting patiently for May to arrive so I can share with you what's been going on in my world. 

Okay, I'll admit it, there are some fads and trends that I just don't get. Those skinny jeans with the saggy crotch that hangs halfway down your thighs? I don't get those at all. But some trends I fall madly in love with and still can't get over. Neon, I'm looking at you kid. I started hopping on the neon train this time last year, and I haven't been able to get off yet. Remember my neon post from last May? Or maybe my inspiration mood board from last May? Yep, neon all over. And I'm not stopping anytime soon. Now, I do think you can easily over do it, but a splash of neon color here and there? I'm all over that! Which leads me to what inspires me this month. 

what inspires me :

Bold. Pops of color. The beginning of the swimming days. Plants everywhere. Casual. Dressy. This is May. In all its glory. 

May is a great month! School is wrapping up everywhere, the days are long and getting warmer every day (except for some weird possible snow flurries this week, seriously Texas, get your weather together for real), and it seems the freedom and fun of summer is just on the horizon. It's so exciting! Plus it's a big birthday month for us with 3 of us having birthdays this month. Which means I have to plan a big party for a certain little one. And figure out what I want for my birthday. I'm thinking a hammock? With a stand, like the one pictured. Wouldn't that be a great place to spend some time reading, or even doing homework?

what I'm listening to :

I can't get enough of this song! Seriously!! I heard it on my last trip to OKC and can honestly say that I turned the radio WAY up and jammed out! I love their voices together and the song is really fantastic. I really hope they pair up for a lot more songs. I'm down with a whole Pink/fun. album. 

I know, I know... I kind of feel like I'm cheating on my beloved Backstreet Boys. But honestly, JT is producing some pretty awesome music. And I can't help but be a fan. It's funny because Ashley and I have had an on-going battle between BSB and *NSYNC for years, and it seems that every time I'm going to meet her for dinner, I hear a JT song right before I get there. So the whole time I'm eating with her, I have one of his songs stuck in my head. So you win, Ashley, you win. ;)

what I'm reading :

I'm happy to report that I *finally* got to read one of my new books. I read Safe Haven last month and it was awesome! I still need to watch the movie. I was going to go watch it the last day it was in theaters but we were too late in getting there. So hopefully I can watch it when it comes out on RedBox or something soon. I'm looking forward to reading The Lucky One sometime soon and I already have it saved on my DVR to watch later. 

  1. what I'm watching : 

We watched the new GI: Joe movie in theaters. That was what we ended up watching instead of Safe Haven. Yeah, I know, talk about a switch of genres right? 

Dancing with the Stars
Some seasons I just can't get into it, but this season is not one of those. I actually teared up when Andy Dick was sent home last night. He wasn't a great dancer, but I was cheering for him so much because he wins at life, but not a dance competition. Kelly and Derek are obviously going to be in the finals, they are awesome and I look forward to watching them every week. 

Oh Castle, Castle, Castle. You are so suave and charming. I absolutely love Richard Castle and Kate Beckett! Caskett is one of the best TV couples and I always look forward to Monday nights when a new episode is coming on. 

The Mindy Project
There are a lot of shows that make me laugh out loud, but there aren't a lot of shows that make me laugh out loud just by thinking of something funny that happened in the show. The Mindy Project is one of those shows though. I love her references to romantic comedies, I love how she isn't toothpick thin, and I love that she is smart, witty, successful, and a little crazy. Yay for an actual character on TV that I can honestly relate to. ;) I've been catching up on episodes on Hulu and I honestly haven't watched an episode yet that I thought was "ehh."

And that's what I've been up to in my free time. Other things going on... 

I start school next week! YIKES! It's happening, y'all, it's really happening. I'm attending Devry University and I'm only taking one course this session: Introduction to Business - Business & Technology. But I'm making progress here! And I finally got in all of my transcripts from my various colleges and universities so we'll see what happens with the whole UCO thing. 

Also, VBS is coming up next month so I've been working on planning that. 

Plus we have birthday parties, final court hearings, and countless other things going on so there is definitely not a dull moment at our house. 

That's all for me, what's going on in your world? Let's catch up!
