Have you seen me?

I know I haven't been around lately, and I probably won't this week either. I am on the final bit of packing and preparing to move. I should be back in a week.

Future Holly

We are 4 days from the best Hollyday of the year. While I love my birthday and always make it a point to celebrate all month long. I am not really happy about the reminder that I am getting older. I actually read the letter from the high school about orientation wrong. I was off by a week. Even when the date was in bold print and underlined. I didn't realize my mistake until I asked her band director if I could have her for a few hours on Tuesday. He told me nicely that It was actually the next week and he had already given them that time off. Yeah I felt dumb. It didn't help when I find this in my mail box.


Really!?!?! They think I am old enough for the AARP. I wanted to cry when I saw this. It did get me thinking. What would Holly of the future look like? I started paying attention to the older women around me, and trying to decide how I think I will turn out. I've found a few that I think could be me.

I'm not miserable

There is something about taking a Monday off that throws the rest of the week off. I feel like today should be Tuesday, but believe me I'll take it being a Wednesday. This means one of my fave link ups.

Today's confession really isn't a confession, because I've mentioned it before. I live in the 9th worst state to live in. This according to CNBC. I don't believe it. Yeah we do have lung issues from the number of smokers we have. But Tobacco is our number 1 legal cash crop. But we have a lot more going for us. Not everyone is miserable and ready to escape at a moments notice. I'm going to share 9 things that I think makes Kentucky Awesome and makes me want to stay.

1. Its Horse Capital of the world. Home to the Kentucky Derby. If you like horses you'll love Kentucky. Most of the people you meet have at least one horse. Not me though, Emmy is seriously allergic. You should really check out the source of this picture. He has tons of beautiful pictures of KY.

2. Its absolutely beautiful. Ok I may be prejudice here, but Autumn and Spring is breathtaking. Winter when the snow hits the trees isn't bad either. Although, that leads to horrible road conditions. Summer kinda sucks though because it is hot and humid.

3. We churn out a lot of Country artists. Loretta Lynn and Crystal Gayle were born and raised not a mile from my house, when I was in elementary school. A guy I went to school with, Chris Stapleton,  has written  songs for  Adele, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan. I can't sing, but apparently there is some serious talent in these hills.

4. As much as it pains me to mention, Its home to 8 time national champions The University of Kentucky Basketball. Its also home to The UK Cheerleaders who also hold national titles, 20 to be exact. Lets not forget my favorite the Morehead State Cheerleaders. The Coed squad has 23 national titles and the all girls have 8. OK a side note. I had class with a male cheerleader named Sean. First day of class he said Hi I'm Sean I'm a cheerleader.....on the Coed Squad. I was like hmmmmm you don't say. I was wondering which squad.

5. We have a castle.

6. We also have a low crime rate. Well usually. Lexington has had a bunch of shootings lately. I'm going to blame it on the heat and humidity making people cranky. The crime rate should be a surprise since almost everyone has at least 1 gun.

7. "Kentucky has more miles of running water than any other state except Alaska"

8. 95% of all Bourbon is produced here.

9. Kentucky Fried Chicken. It really is finger lickin' good.

I googled WHAT!?!?!?

I have been looking forward to this link up all week. I google everything. If someone has a question i'm always the first to say Google It!

So last week I googled.

The story behind Marvin Gaye's death- Apparently he was on drugs and he and his dad got into an argument. He pushed his dad, and his dad came back into the room and shot him.

If you could make a Trivet using scrapbook paper on top- The jury is sill out on this one. Some sights say yes and that covering it with a sealant is fine, others say use an epoxy.  I think setting something hot on paper no matter what it is covered in is asking for trouble.

Those are probably the oddest things I've googled..

These are the Keyword people have used to find me. I just don't even know what to say about this.

I want snow no, no I don't. I did nothing but rant about this snow last winter. Which may be how they found me, but you'll rarely hear me say I want snow. If I do its because I want a snow day.

4 guys and 3 girls um whateven. I just don't even want to know what they were looking for

Creepy Stalker meme I hope I was able to help. Although I'm not so sure. I do suspect I have some lurkers

Facebook my life sucks Lets get this out in the open. NO ONE on facebook cares if your life sucks. I did have a post ranting about facebook. Actually I have a few posts ranting about facebook so this may be where it came from. Most days I wonder why I have FB. It drives me crazy.

Go From My Life What does this even mean?

One Word Replies Not sure about this one either. But it makes me think of grump cat. I would totally post a meme of but for some reason my computer doesn't want to let me save pics.....gotta go google that.

Hollyday present ideas

Its 11 days until the best Hollyday of the year. I know you've probably already gotten me my present but just in case you have't here is a list of totally resonable items you can give me.

A Mini Cooper.
I built one on the Mini USA website. It will only cost 30,290

To close on my house. I'm sick of this consuming my every waking moment, and most of my sleeping moments. I just want to be done and settled. 

 A date with Greg Warren. I talked about him a few weeks ago when I said I finally got to see him perform. He is absolutely my favorite comedian. I love a man that can make me laugh.

  A vacation to somewhere tropical. I am so jealous of Kelli @Justbeachyblog. She gets to see this every single day.


A ride along with Tony Stewart or at the very least a life size billboard of him. That half smile and scruffy face kills me.

It's OK

That I get excited about seeing school supplies out,but not excited about school starting back. Our lives are much more laid back during the summer and I don't look forward to the rushing that the school year brings.

That I could be moving in 2 weeks, but haven't started packing at all. I am just so afraid that yet another housing situation is going to fall through. I love this house and yet I am keeping myself as reserved as I can, because until my name is on the paperwork it could go away like the others.

That I had a good laugh at a couple I saw in the lobby of my office this morning. They were both wearing the same shade of green. He in a button up and she in a sundress. At first I thought it may be a uniform of a company they worked for.  When I asked if I could help them, because they looked lost. I learned she works at the other end of the hall and he was looking for the investment company. So,  they chose to look like leprechauns today.

Happy Birthday America

I'm sad to see the 3 day weekend go. Even though I have a ton of vacation time saved up, I'm waiting until I have a closing date on the house and then I'm going to spend my vacation packing and moving.

This weekend was probably the best weekend I've had in ages. I napped, I swam, I shopped, played mini golf, and rode go carts, and listened to some great music and grilled out. I didn't want it to end.

I also surprised myself by taking the US Citizenship test and I passed it. I hate history. I have never been able to get into it. I got 43/50 right.

Oh yeah......Also, Happy Birthday Heath :)
