Throwback Thursday … Not a song this time, but memories

Next week, I am going to celebrate my birthday with Almost Kings. This is becoming a tradition. I have now spent three absolutely amazing birthdays with those four crazy and wonderful guys from Atlanta. I decided for my throwback post this week I would share photos from those nights–and a video that is simultaneously embarrassing and epic 🙂

When I turned 26…

When I turned 27…


And the aforementioned video


More Pictures With the Princess

I can’t believe Ivy is almost two now! That totally blows my mind!

So for those who don’t know, this beautiful little girl is my best friend’s first child. She knows me as “Aunt Mia” and in all honesty, I absolutely adore this kid. She loves having her picture taken (as you can see) and she understands the concept of a selfie…which is a bit sad, but that’s the world we live in.

Throwback Thursday: “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)”

Judge me if you must, but I still love the Backstreet Boys. Undoubtedly the best boy band ever ❤ My mom and I watched the movie that came on Palladia, and it kinda blew my mind to think that they have been together for twenty-two years. I’ve been a loud and proud fan for twenty of those years. And that’s why “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” is the throwback track of the week.

So I’ve Been MIA…

It’s been almost two full weeks since I’ve posted anything on here. It wasn’t really a choice, just circumstances plotting against me. I had an unexpected break from work, thanks to the AC going out and the company that fixed it taking their sweet time getting the needed part. The plus side to the situation was that it ensured I had the Fourth of July off. I watched fireworks with my best friends and little Miss Ivy. It was great. I ended up crashing at their house for the entire weekend.

The only other exciting thing that has happened during my break was a visit from my cousin who lives in Indiana. I had not seen her and her husband in seven years, so catching up was quite interesting. She also brought her fourteen-year-old daughter…and the last time I was around her, she was ONE. Seeing her all grown up made me feel kinda ancient. Ha!

In random news, I’m celebrating my birthday with Almost Kings (again). My friends who can’t attend the show are going to fix dinner for me the next night. Both lemon poppy seed waffles and red velvet waffles with cream cheese icing have been mentioned, as well as bacon. Needless to say, I’m really looking forward to that weekend. 🙂
