Let's Talk....

About how my entire life is one big embarrassing moment
Like the fact that as I sit here and type this I am wearing black sweat pants
So what, right?
Yeah well I also have liquid glue stains all over them right now as well....
What my pants actually look like right at this second...

Or let's talk about the a night a few weeks ago
The new boy that I told you about here just so happened to be at my house
Well we went out for ice cream and I payed
When we got back he wanted to pay me back...
I said no..
He didn't listen and put money in my hand
So when he walked me to my front door I thought I would be sneaky
I took off across the front yard like a bolt of lightning
I thought I was going to make it to his truck to put the money in there when all of a sudden...
I hit the ground
I didn't trip over anything
I just fell ... flat on my face... or my shins because they both have huge bruises now

Or let's talk about how the other night at my friends we were all talking about something
And someone goes "Yeah Becca (talking about me) said this the other day"
And I yell "Yeah Becca said that!"
Um... what?

Want another one?
You know you are an alcoholic (not really, but whatev) when you get auto-corrected once and the person you are texting automatically sends back "are you drunk?"
Either I am a really good texter or I am just drunk toooooo much

I'm sure there are more moments for me to tell you about
But that would be embarrassing...

Everything you need to (or don't want to) know about Thanksgiving

Let me start off this post by saying the average person consumes 3,000+ calories on Thanskgiving.
Umm.... what?!?!
It would take a 150 pound person running 29 miles to burn that off...
Yeah, now that I have enlightened you with that lovely piece of information let's continue
I love Thanksgiving
Although it's not my favorite holiday (see here) I do love all the food I get
The turkey, the mashed potatos, the green beans, the stuffing... I could go on and on
I also love being in a food coma ... I love eating the food then taking a nap
Then I wake up and eat the food all over again andddd take another nap
And I repeat this process throughout the entire day
Awesome, I know
Anywho, did you know that at the first Thanksgiving dinner they didn't even have forks?
Werid, but whatev
They ate with spoons and knives and their hands
They also didn't have mashed potatos (whaaa?!?!) or pumpkin pie (which I could also do without)
On Thanksgiving day Americans consume about 736 million pounds of turkey
Just on that day
I love me some turkey but holy smokes
Speaking of sleeping
I know it was a few facts ago but you know the difference
Anyways, turkey does not actually make you sleepy
It's all the carbs you consumed
Or the alcohol
Or the family
Same thing
Good news for you people out there who cook the whole meal though!
You burn about 700 calories cooking an entire Thanksgiving meal
Now if only we could stop ourselves from eating everything we just made...
Or if I could actually get up and make some of the food
I'll just sit here and eat everything and lay around
Sounds like an excellent plan to me

The Sexiest Man Alive

This coveted award has been given out to numerous deserving men
Such as:
 Matt Damon ... umm hellooooo
 Bradley Cooper ... He was Mr. Sexy on the Hangover
George Clooney ... one of my mom's favorites

But this year People has made the perfect decision.
This year they choose the man I have thought was sexy since I was just a wittleee teenager
My dog may or may not be named after him.... Don't judge

I mean just look at him

Now let's just look at some pictures of this lovely man, shall we?

 And we love that you love stripping
I just love this movie
Why thank you Mr. Tatum

Alright, enough with the blog post dedicated to Channing.
I think it's time I actually go watch Magic Mike for the first time
I know what you are thinking...
You love Channing Tatum but you have never seen Magic Mike?
I have just been waiting for the right time people, okay?
Have a great day! :)

I love shooting!

At non moving targets
Like paper plates, or water bottles
I don't know what it is about them but I just love it
My first experience was not that exciting
I shot one gun, it was too loud, so I sat in the car the rest of the time
But the past two times I have gone I have learned to love it
I even have my own pair of ear plugs for it now

Some of the guns may or may not be to heavy for me to hold
And I might have gotten some bruises from some of them
And the little innocent baby ones?
Yeah, not so innocent
Some of those kick worse than the big ones
But I am a beast, swear

That is all.

First Dates Can Be So Awkward

But the one I went on Monday was anything but awkward
It went so amazingly well, I didn't expect it to go so well
The last first date I went on, well we won't even talk about that
But I was so extremely nervous to go on this one Monday that I was shaking
I hate first dates
They are always so awkward

But this date was different
We went to the movies and got ice cream afterwards
And as simple as that sounds it was probably one of the best dates I have ever been on
I did not stop smiling the entire time
He had me laughing the whole time and it was so easy to talk to him
He is super super sweet
And I am not just saying this, he really is probably one of the sweetest guys I have ever met
And I know what you are thinking, it's only been the first date
And even if it doesn't go any further than this I am glad he restored my faith in men
Because let me tell you, lately it was going so far down the drain I wasn't sure I was going to be able to get it back
So what I am trying to tell you is this:
Don't give up
And don't be nervous
Or be nervous
Because sometimes first dates really suck
But sometimes you get really lucky, like I did, and you get to go on an amazing first date

I hope your Wednesday is going wonderfully!

Hello, Hello, Hello!

Oh my goodness!
I just want to take a second to thank Tami over at The Things We Find Inside for letting me co-host her I Love My Friends GFC Blog Hop yesterday!
I have gained so many new followers who I hope will become new friends!
So I thought I should do a little about me post to introduce myself to my new followers!

First off my name is Becca, obviously
(I love the word obviously, you will learn this)
I enjoy being sarcastic 100% of the time
I fear serious talk 
I feel as if emotions just get to messy
So instead I joke around, a lot

If you would like to know who my future husbands are you can check that out here
I love the St. Louis Cardinals
I live and breath Red October
This picture pissed me off so bad after they lost to the Giants, I almost never went back to this Wal-Mart

I enjoy shooting guns, although this is a recent enjoyment I have found

These were taken yesterday
Don't mess with me if I have a gun
Which I don't own
I borrow my friends
But still, don't mess with me

I write about anything and everything that comes to my mind
Most of the time it's about my life
Or the life of celebrities
Because I tend to obsess over that for some reason
It's a guilty pleasure of mine

I also write a lot about this little guy here
He is my little cousin/baby brother and I love him to death
In March I will also be writing about this little baby girl
She will become my newest cousin/baby sister in March and I cannot WAIT
Ps. They are not actually a cousin/sibling, I just like to think of them as my siblings because I am so close to them

My life is not super exciting
I don't go on big adventures whenever I want
I am a college student working towards becoming an elementary education teacher while working two office jobs on campus
I mean, obviously my life is super duper exciting
I live in the mid-west which can also be called the-middle-of-no-where-with-nothing-to-do-ever
But I will try my best to entertain you
I love this blog and I love the friendships it has brought me
I cannot wait for more friendships along the way and I am so glad you have all decided to join in my non-crazy, not so exciting, adventure we all call life.

I would love it if you could follow me on Facebook
Or Instagram @bgrandidier
Or all of them!
*Side note: I may or may not have a slight addiction to all things social media, glitter, pink, fourwheelers, boys, and books

Thanks for getting to know me! 
I can't wait to get to know you! 

One more side note!
You all need to go check out the AMAZING giveaway going on over at Whispering Sweet Nothings 
It is called the Rally to 2K Giveaway and you will not be disappointed!
