People Pleasing

In my life, I have realized that there are basically always two options on things; people pleasing, or self pleasing. I remember one specific example and that was doing this basketball camp that I DID NOT want to go to, but one of my friends did which means I did.

I was a pretty weird child and I would get upset about going to the dumbest things. What can I say, I'm a homebody. I personally don't like doing many social things; I mean I like some of them, but I would rather be curled up on the couch with my cat (uh-oh watch out, crazy cat lady headed your way).

Anyways, back to my example. I decided to go to this week of basketball camp and let me tell you; it was TORTURE filled with tears and snot and everything. I honestly have no clue why I went to it if I knew I was going to hate it so much.

Another example is the same friend wanted me to go to this camp with her done at my church and then on the last day we got to go to the waterpark. Yeah, just not a good time for me.
Something about me and camps don't mix well.

Now looking back on these times (and many others)  I realize that I should have always done what I wanted to do.  Let's face it, if you don't get a good vibe about something just don't do it.

Even though these are small, silly examples, there are tons of things that could go wrong if you choose to people please.

Self is most important in situations like this. You don't want to get yourself all worked up about something silly and just wear yourself down with the decision making process. If someone asks you to do something and you honestly don't want to, just say no...there are no excuses needed people; you just simply need some self time.

Take time today to appreciate yourself and only make decisions you are happy with...then you will live with no regrets!

Arby's Gyro!

Okay, so if you haven't had one of these things you need to go get one now..I mean now..go get in your car and get one...NOW!

Arby's, being known for their roast beef sandwiches, made me skeptical of trying the new foreign food (that we all have trouble pronouncing) coming out for a limited time at participating locations.

I couldn't decide if I wanted to try it or not, but after my mom told me how good it was I immediately had to go get one.

I decided to get roast beef on it (you have the option of roast beef or turkey), and it was delicious.

The Arby's gyro is layers of roast beef, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, tzatziki sauce, and garlic seasoning all stuffed inside the softest pita bread you will ever have in your life.  I even added a little Arby and horsey sauce to mine and it made it even better!!

This gyro is paired perfectly with some curly fries and a doctor pepper!

These sandwiches are also only $6 for two right now! You can't beat that!!!

Dear Arby's,
         You once again have wowed me with an amazing creation that equals up to my love of the reuben.

Seriously, go get one.

Some laughter for that bland Thursday

Before you start reading this, why not go eat a pickle (they aren't bland at all).

Have you ever wondered what your food is thinking when it see's those scary teeth about to bite down on it.

What would you think?

"Oh yay! I'm about to be engulfed by someone's nasty intestines and be thrown into a pit of dark slimy goo!"


You would be thinking "Please don't eat me, please don't eat me, pleaseeeeeee!!!!"

An example of this was a pickle that found itself about to be engulfed into Austin's stomach yesterday (but luckily for the pickle, he doesn't eat them). 

Look how yummy (I mean sad) it looks.

Will you sign up for cucumber awareness week and not eat your pickles on your chicken sandwich to be an activist for this little guy (I sure won't! Nom Nom Nom... I love pickles).

Since there are not many people out there like Austin who choose to save the cucumber world, I just thought I would make a little petition that I whole heartedly do NOT stand by.

Shall you save the cucumber one bite at a time.

Or please your palette one taste at a time.

I choose option 2...:):):)
Sorry Dill.

The Luck of the Bird

Today I was walking outside and noticed the prettiest little red bird sitting on a tree branch.  I stopped to take a picture, and of course just as I got the camera ready the bird flew away.
I tried to follow the bird with my camera and snapped the photo not knowing I would actually get a decent picture that you could visibly see him.  
I thought, "Red birds are supposed to be lucky, so maybe I got him in the picture."  

I guess I learned my lesson; red birds luck never fails!...and never give up, because the impossible picture (so you think) is just one click away!!!

Look for your red bird tomorrow as a sign to get through this week.  Only 3 (basically 2) more days until Friday!!!
