TSP Launched!

So I've been completely MIA.  I've been busy getting The {something} Project launched.  If you haven't checked it out you should! I'm so proud of it and so thankful for everyone who is helping me.

For now I am taking a break from Pretty in Pink. I want to focus on TSP and make it what I know it can be.  I'm not saying goodbye forever but it's possible that is what it will come to.

If you need your daily fix then you really should come over to TSP and see what we're all about.

Until later....

The {something} Project - Announced!

So I am finally ready to announce my new venture I've mentioned a few times.  I am starting a new website/blog and it's called The {something} Project! I am extremely excited to finally share this news with you! It's launching in early August but you can already follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest

The {something} Project is a new website {in the form of a blog, for now} for everyday, witty, funny, interesting girls. There will literally be a little bit of everything. I have asked about 7 girls to do this with me so you will get expertise from everywhere not to mention so many different voices.  Everyone will be extremely real with you but mostly we want to make you laugh.

Stay tuned for a sneak peek at some articles I've been working on. Until then follow us on all our social media to get a peek into what TSP is going to be all about.   I promise you won't want to miss this!

Bikini Shopping :: Poor Girl

I've been on the search for a new bikini this year. Two years ago I bought about 3 or 4 so I took a break last year. I'm on the hunt again and my timeline is to have them by the 4th of July. Or at the very least our annual Lake of the Ozarks trip.  

Shopping for a bikini to me is terrifying. A. it makes me want to drop 7 pounds, so juice cleanse this week might be a must. B. I'm not sexy. There's nothing sexy about me. Have you ever looked at bikini's on Victoria's Secret? No I don't want 4 inches of padding and an underwire. I don't even want that in my bra's so I sure as hell don't want that in my bikini. Also, how is a normal girl supposed to pick a swim suit with some hot victoria's secret model in them? I'm sure as hell not going to look like that.  I even usually stay away from triangle tops and stick to my bandeau's. It's possible I branch out. But let's be real... prob not. This is the one I am dying for...

Hipanema :: $130 for set

Unfortunately it's pretty far out of my price range so I will be stalking it online to try to get it on sale. If you've never heard of Hipanema then check it out. It's a hippie girls dream.

Here's what I've narrowed down to. Again, I really wish I could just look at Vicky's Secret bikini's not on these hotel models that make me want to throw up the McDonald's chicken nuggets and soft serve I had for dinner...

1 :: 2 :: 3 :: 4 :: 5 :: 6

I love mixing and matching bikini's. You will rarely see me in a total matching suit. Coral top print bottoms? Yep. Print top black bottoms? Yep.

I think this post has motivated me more to go work out than to spend money...

What I've Been Up To.... Part 2

I haven't been keeping up with these as much as I'd like... however, a flight delay at the airport is always a good time to catch up right? {3 hours and counting....}

I may have mentioned but Matt Costa is one of my favorite artists of all time. I love his melodies and his lyrics, really just everything about his music is amazing to me. I have seen him in concert before at House of Blues in Dallas. It was everything I wanted it to be. However, it was nothing like this last time was. First, let me explain that he plays in the small bar area room called The Foundation Room at House of Blues which holds a lot less people.  At one point he actually got off stage and sang in the middle of the crowd. I considered posting this video, however, mostly all you can hear is me screaming and singing.... soo.... that idea was quickly vetoed. I chose instead to post a video where you can only minimally hear me.  I realized recently that I am an obnoxious concert goer.... but I don't care. I sing every word I know and not quietly. Sorry I'm not sorry.

One of my favorite songs of all time is Sweet Rose. Is it because Rose just happens to be my middle name? Maybe that's where it started but it turned into something more. It speaks to me... I literally feel like Matt is singing this song to me. I'd be heartbroken to find out that's not true...

After the concert I somehow convinced my friends to wait around outside since the drummer {who during Matt only songs would stand out in the crowd near us} told us that he was going to come outside. We waiting for about 20 minutes until someone finally told us that he was meeting people inside. So we went back inside and the greatest moment of my life happened. I met Matt Costa. He's so adorable and sweet. When it was my turn I was shaking and probably near tears. {I'd be lying if I told you I didn't kind of cry when this was all over... but also, I had been steadily drinking all day so cut me a little slack...}  I told him that he had been my favorite musician for about 6 years now. He literally gave me a confused look and said "really?". Yes. This is not a lie. I may have changed a lot in the last 6 years but literally the one thing that has stayed the same is my love of Matt Costa.

Matt Costa with my friend Amanda (aka Moo). Really annoyed her pic with Matt is cuter than mine...
I think he's so happy because he literally just met his biggest fan...
True. Love.
While Matt was in the middle of the crowd playing.
Enjoy. Matt Costa playing Astair which was one of the first songs I ever heard of his and started this obsession....

What I've Been up To.... Part 1

Things are really starting to get going lately with my new venture. I find myself consumed by it when I'm not working.  Besides that I've still been extra busy the last few months.  Here are a few things you missed that I would consider to be my favorite moments {this is part 1...}

First up on my US travel was Denver for my sisters baby shower. If you remember here she's having twins!!  {oops that was only 2 posts ago... and over a month. Sorry about that...}.

Curling Kelly's hair for the big day, in the bathroom 5 minutes before guests arrived.

Chatting with mimosa in hand {obviously...}

My sister Carla.  Don't judge us... we are making fun of the skinny arm pose. {which really gives you a skinnier arm turns out...}
The Meetz girls together. We didn't get a perfect picture but got 2 decent ones...

Whoops... Smiles but Carla's eyes are closed.
Couldn't resist for some reason another make fun of the skinny arm pose...
The fun in Denver didn't stop there. The Meetz girls took Kelly's loot back to her house and then went to a local bar to watch Wichita State unfortunately lose in the Final 4. We lazily hung out, had dinner, laughed as we always do together, made fun of each other as we always do, and went back to our hotel room and watched Silver Linings Playbook {fist pumping JL and BC's weird relationship}.

The next day Carla and my mom left early and I had the whole day to roam around Denver with Kelly. We had Mexican food {because even far away from Dallas I can't be without it for too long}, shopped {same answer?}, and then went to my name-sakes museum; The Molly Brown House.  If you remember on Titanic, the character Kathy Bates played? Loud? Bossy? Sarcastic? Yep... I was named after her. She was a famous Denver socialite who was a huge activist for women's rights {she was obviously really badass, and obviously my parents had higher hopes for me}.  Anyway, we went on a tour of her house since I haven't done it since we lived in Denver and I was little. 

Obviously took the obligatory selfies outside her house... {no pictures allowed inside} Prepare yourself. I'm sure people watching were creeped out...

How do you pose alone? Like this...

Awkward lady like?

Can you see me?

When I feel awkward alone sometimes I do this...

Different angle?
And I'll put you out of my selfie misery... I bet the awkwardness of it all made you sweat from uncomfortableness huh?


P.S. Single girl? Girl who has been single ever in her 20's? Read this immediately... Am I the only one who thinks it's accurate and hilarious?

Shoe Obsession

I have put myself on a spending lock down. Not freeze, because the word freeze doesn't scare me. Lock down, seems way more serious.  When you do what I do you have amazing things in front of you all day that are screaming to be bought. So I spend way more then I should on clothes, shoes, jeans {yes whole separate category}, bags, etc etc.  So when I see something and drift into "well that price isn't bad..." I immediately snap back and move on to something else. The WORST thing right now is shoes.

ALL I WANNA DO IS BUY SHOES!!!!  It's so hard not to, but I've done it so far.  So just in case you felt like you wanted to buy me something, I'm a 6 1/2 or 7 and here are the shoes I can't stop looking at...

Zara :: $99 :: AMAZINGNESS
I look at them every night when I get home from work and have somehow talked myself into not driving to the Galleria to see if I can try them on. I have thought of 95 outfits to wear with these. They are my shoe heaven... Amazing in every single way possible. I. Die. For. These. Shoes.

Travel :: Everywhere.....

I've been MIA.  And I'm not going to lie it's going to get ten times worse.  I'm sitting at the airport right now. {ok I was sitting at the airport but I'm not now...} My second trip in a month and a half of basically non-stop travel.  Last weekend I was in Austin visiting one of my very best friends to celebrate her 27th birthday.  I returned Sunday evening and left Friday morning at 4:30 am {from my apartment} to get on a plane to go to Denver for my sisters baby shower {it's twins!!}.  

Try to keep up with the rest... I return today, then head for the airport again on Wednesday to head to Atlanta.  From Atlanta {after being there until Sunday} I will head to some combination of the following; South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, and/or Kentucky.  I will return on April 20th {Saturday}, then getting back on a plane Monday morning to head to L.A. until that Wednesday.  From there I get a week in a half break from the travel but then get on a plane again the 3rd of May to go visit my brother in D.C. to then get on a train to head to New York for work until that Wednesday.  Did you get all of that? Yeah... it's a little intense, but luckily a good majority is fun, family, and friends so I think I will live through it... hopefully.  Not to mention the fact that I'm one of those weirdo's that absolutely LOVES their job.

Airports are my new home
Long story short I'm busy.  I am also taking a short break from the blog to start a new venture.  Don't worry, not a real break. You'll still get as many posts as I can muster.  The new venture will have to wait to be announced but it's something I'm really excited about and I think you will be too.

Until next time.
