The Under Appreciated Flower...


I try to always keep fresh flowers in my house... it makes the room they are in that much nicer. I can get a lil' costly quick especially in this warmer weather. But, I wanted to remind you of how amazing the Carnation is. It's actually one of my top 3 favorite flowers. They are ruffly, and I LOVE ruffles. LOL. They are super inexpensive and the look gorgeous in large bunches. Because they are less expensive you can buy a ton of them. You can pick a couple colors and do a mix of them in vase or split them up and put them in a few rooms of your house. I love using my smaller cute drinking glasses as a vase. It's unique and they are small enough I can place bunches in all the rooms! They aren't overly sensitive to the heat either. You can even put a small arrangement in your bathroom, even with the steam from the shower they will still look perfect 4-5 days later :)
They are cost effective, live longer and smell really sweet.
Go get some today.... I did. :)
Enjoy!

p.s. try cutting them down real short in a shorter vase, don't always leave them tall, you risk them flopping over allot easier. :)

Dont call my name dont call my name, Alejandro....

Did you really expect any less from our favorite Gaga??
If you have trouble with this video, let me help you. FIRST off, she's not doing or showing us anything that doesn't actually do on somewhere... it's out decision to look and watch. Don't read too much into it. She's a perfect example of someone having enough power to do whatever she damn well pleases in front of the camera and we will all be waiting impatiently for whats next, time after time.
Just when you think you might know what one of her songs is about, she proves us wrong. I love it. Its just entertainment, that's it. Enjoy....

Your own personal shit meter...

An old boss of mine once told me "Everyone has their own shit meter. You have to decide where yours is so you know when you've taken as much shit from people as you can possibly handle. Once you get to that point.... your done. NO one deserves to have to go into "overflow" mode of shit".
With that being said, I reached my shit level. I've worked for a company for almost 3 years that paid me pretty well... with that, everyday was a new story of hostility, lies and verbal abuse with degrading comments. I was inside a bubble of the direct shots for about 1 1/2-2 years... and some how they ran out of people to attack and then I became fair game just like everyone else. You can take a certain amount of shit from someone and try to let it roll off your back, at some point it just doesn't roll off anymore. I had to take a look at where I was in life and what I was doing and make a choice to stay or go.
With a ton of support behind me I made the choice to walk away from my job. It feels like a big deal to me and gives me terrible anxiety when I think of walking away from a job when tons of people are suffering without one, but I masked my 9-5 misery well, but its become almost impossible to hide now.

So, now I have all this time on my hands.... for a portion of it I plan to bombard you (not totally) with how great Passion Parties is (who wants to have a party??), play with my nephew as much as I can and prepare to start dental school in July.

My honey said to me the other day, "you just have to take a chance sometimes, you can do this" and my bff said to me, "there is no time like the present, life is too short and being happy is a must!"
I can be obsessive about things sometimes, so I just keep those pieces of advice in mind and everything seems better. :)

And how do I like to celebrate? With some Gaga of course. :)

We can all use a little more Passion, contact me to book your party today! Its so much fun!
