Kacey's Musical Preferences

I started a 2011 book challenge.

Let Them Eat CakeLet Them Eat Cake by Sandra Byrd
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely loved this book. I found that I was able to relate to Lexi really well after graduating college and trying to find "the best fit" job for my career path, which I'm still uncertain about. What I love is how she wasn't afraid to take a chance on finding God, the ideal job and love. Great book and I can't wait to read more by Sandra Byrd.

Sensational Sunday: A week in Review!

'Ello Cupcakes!
This has been one busy and good week!
I'm going to recap it since I never got to blog about the whole week!

I took my last section of the CPA exam today! Regulation Woot Woot!
Now, it's pure anxiety waiting for the results of Audit and Financial!
Afterwords, I meet up with an old friend and chatted for a couple of hours.
It was nice just to catch up!
Then I had dinner with my friend who just got back from Peru!
Excellent test day over all!
I did nothing and it was great!
I hung out with my "Cousin" all day and all we did was watch TV.
It was a great great day!


My cousin and some of her friends and I went to Water World.
I was kinda bummed that we didn't go for the whole day, but it was a ton of fun!
Also NASBA starting releasing CPA exam scores. So now the anxiety is lessened.
After Water World, I had delicious food from the Cheese Cake Factory and 
went bowling!

One again, I did absolutely nothing!
It was great!
I had dinner with my mommy!

I just lounged around the house all day!
Had Pizza with my mom and dad!
Another Nothing day!
Ha ha ha I loved my week of nothing!
It was the first time this summer that I have spent a week
not studying or working!
Also Audit scores were released today so I can see if I Passed/Failed...
in 24-48 business hours.

Went through clothes once again!
Made the ultimate decision on what to keep and what to throw away!
Went to Greality to have dinner with my Little for her day o' birth!

Had lunch with the one of my besties!
Went shoe shopping-spent way to much money!
Got a cute cardigan from Express and some tanks from NY & Co.

Then I had the most EPIC date with Cathy and her hubby Cody!
It was so nice to spend the evening with them! They are the best!

Also loved my twitter convo with OnxyHikari
because it was EPIC to the x-treme!

Also missing Kat hard core!
I can't wait to see her pretty face!

Well that has been my week. Pretty relaxing and not so crazy!

This upcoming week, however, is a different story.
One I'm going to avoid!

How was your week cupcakes! I hope it was relaxing and stress free!

Take care my darlings!

My Patience has been tested for far to long....


Hello doll faces,
Sorry I needed to get the scream out of my system cause


Like I said in my last post,
I take my last section of the CPA exam
Actually taking REGULATION is only like 10% of my stress.

My patience has been tried and tested for far too long.
You may be asking yourself, what am I patiently waiting on?
Well about another 40% of my stress is coming from
NOT and I mean NOT
finding out if I passed or failed Audit and Financial.
The suspense is slowly killing, annoying me.
I get it that it takes a while for the exams to get scored and all,
but waiting a MONTH and a HALF seems redic to me.
Thankfully results are supposed to be released this coming week,
so I will either be celebrating or drowning my sorrows.

Unfortunately, another 25% of my stress is coming from the big
M word.

Yep, moving! Oh the joys right?!?!
Well it's stressing me out cause I'm furniture shopping for brand new stuff.
I don't know what I want or need.
Plus I already have too much stuff that I took home with me from college,
that once again I'm going to go through to decide if I really need it with me or not.

Another 15% of my stress comes from the fact that it is August 15,
and I have NOT had a summer at all.
I have spent every single day since I graduated college....
either studying or working and most days both.
I thought that this last summer would be the best
cause it's the time to have fun before the official BIG KID JOB..


Lastly, the last 10% of my stress is just coming from LIFE in general
and all the curve balls it just wants to throw at me.
Yep, just grand.

Although, my massage yesterday did help a whole lot!
It totally relaxed me and put me in a zombie like state which I totally needed.

On a much more non venting note,
Today has been a grand day. I have done absolutely nothing,
which I totally needed.

Have A GRAND DAY Doll Faces!

Random, er the thoughts bouncing around in my head.

Hello darlings,
So I totally fail, er suck at blogging. I always have all these
thoughts bouncing around in my mind and I just never have the time to
write them down. Oh yeah, it's all that darn studying I've been doing.

I'm so super excited to take my last section of the CPA exam

I'm so stoked about it because I have been studying like CRAZY
trying to prepare for all the sections. It will just be nice to know that
come MONDAY, all that hard work has paid off....
At least till I find out the results of the exam... and that's another story.


I'm only days away from moving, which
I know, I know, I know
is hard for a lot of my best friends and friends in general.

No Lies here... it's super hard for me.
Never did I imagine that I would be more than 10
minutes away from my Hannah (Cathy) or my Demi (Kat).
Let alone, miss Onxy Hikari who has become
one awesome friend via Twitter.

But I am kind of excited to start a new chapter in my life
and nervous as hell. Thank goodness it's only 5 hours from CO
so I'm not too far away.

If you follow me on twitter, you would have recently seen this tweet.

The last thing on my mind... is how to tell my "Cousin" that I would
just like one date to be just the two of us.
I love that she has friends that she hangs out with in our hometown,
don't get me wrong, but every time we ever makes plans
there is always a 3rd person and I FEEL like the THIRD wheel.

I know I need to tell her how I feel, but I have this problem
where what I'm thinking and what I'm saying don't agree at all.

So this was, er is a venting blog but I feel a lot better now!

On a totally amazing side note...
Jayde sends the most EPIC song recommendations EVER!

I'm so so so exited to add them to my music collection!

Also, JLS has become my new FAVORITE band.
I just can't get there songs out my head.

Haven't heard of them? Check out the song below!

JLS- One Shot

Do it! Cause you know it will make me happy :)

Thursday and Friday's Happy Thoughts.....

So I was totally going to post this yesterday, however studying for my Financial section of the CPA exam kinda stole my mind. I wanted to let KatOfDiamonds know that I was sending her tons of Happy Thoughts on Thursday June 15, 2010. And It seemed to work. But I really wish she knew yesterday that I was sending her happy thoughts. I guess one day late isn't too bad.

Friday's Happy Thoughts go to #TheApocalypseofAwesome. That is all. They know who they are!
