Colt Johnson Shout Out

Colt Johnson Shout Out

Hi!! One of my Sunday evening traditions with my favorite cousin, Laura, who lives in Pittsburgh is watching 90 Day Fiance together. We love to watch the new episode and text the entire time, discussing the latest drama and making witty comments. If you watched the newest season on TLC, then you will know all about the craziness that was Colt, Larissa, and DEBBIE. Colt and Larissa were the couple that we all loved to hate and they provided Laura and I with endless hours of quality entertainment.

So, imagine my surprise when Laura emailed me a video of Colt, himself, talking directly to me! Lol, during Laura’s free time, she found a website where you can hire celebrities to make videos for you. She found Colt on the site and she couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get him to congratulate me on my status as a new aunt. Check this shit out:

Guys… I really just can’t. As soon as Colt started saying my name I immediately texted Laura with “wtf is happening?” Lol and when I realized that he was talking to me the hysterical freaking out began. I laughed so hard I almost cried and I just had to share this beautiful shout out with all of you. Even if you don’t watch 90 Day Fiance, there is no denying the hilarity of this video and I cannot wait to return the favor to Laura with her own special hello from Coltee. 😀

Who else is a 90 Day Fiance fan? Which couple do you love to hate on that show? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

I’m Back!

I’m Back!

Hello! After some grueling time away from my blog baby, Lil Red is officially back. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still in a buttload of pain but, it’s somewhat manageable now and I missed everyone too much to keep away. Long story short, after my wisdom teeth and gum transplant surgery, I had some pretty major complications. This included dehydration, exposed bone in the roof of my mouth, sockets that needed irrigated, and excruciating pain. It. Was. Awful.

But, I’m here now just in time for the holidays and I am so happy to be back in the blogging world with all of my beloved friends and readers. I would appreciate it if everyone would continue sending me the warm fuzzies though, because I’m still hurting pretty badly. And, I will see all of you tomorrow to chit chat about my December finishes! Much love. -Sarah

Sick As A Dog :(

Sick As A Dog :(

Helloooooo. No offense to all of the beautiful dogs in the world, but I sure was sick as one this past week. From Friday until Monday I was suffering from a nasty sore throat, aches, fatigue, and nausea – it was seriously enough to make a grown man cry. And, because I turn into an overemotional mess while sick, cry I did. You seriously take your health for granted until you start feeling like a big bag of butts.

But, I am feeling much better, and now things are back to normal here on lifewithlilred! You just didn’t get to hear me complain about my disease ridden self because of a little thing called pre-writing. But, I promise that you weren’t missing out on much! How do you cure the winter flu? What are some of your tried and true home remedies? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

PMS? Or Just Pissed?

Standard
PMS? Or Just Pissed?

Heyy everyone and happy Monday. So thanks to a not so subtle title, I’m sure you guys can all gather that it’s my “time of the month”. TMI? Maybe. But, it is my page which sometimes doubles as an online journal for when I just want to shout out to the void of the world wide web and be petty. So, let’s play out this new game show style segment and see what happens…

Sarah’s Bad Mood:

Is It PMS Or Just Pissed?

The Symptoms:

Well…Let’s see:

  1.  For a snack last night I ate three pancakes, two squares of Ghirardelli chocolate, a bagel and butter, a bowl of fettuccine noodles, and a delightful couscous salad.
  2.  I just told my dog who offered me a toy to “go away”.
  3.  My stomach feels like somebody is Mortal Kombat punching it.
  4.  I am SO freaking irritable that I seriously think I could Mortal Kombat punch a hole through the wall.
  5.  Did I mention that all I want to do is eat?
  6.  I literally think that if somebody looked at me the wrong way right now that I would scream and then immediately start crying.

Now, I’m no Web MD specialist but my conclusion to this riveting (admittedly TMI) new segment is…

PMS!

You know, when I was a teenager, my periods never bothered me. They were more of a monthly annoyance than anything and that was it. No pissy moods, no cramps, no wanting to eat everything in a twelve foot radius, no mood swings, no nothing. But now, as a twenty-two year old, my periods are the biggest pain in the ass on the planet. Cramps like a mother, my mouth turns into a vacuum that consumes literally ALL the food, and mood swings that would make Ohio weather seem normal.

I’ve mentioned this to a lot of my girlfriends and about three fourths of them have similar sentiments to mine. As if being a young twenty something pathetically floundering her way through life wasn’t hard enough already, mother nature gives me a week of torture monthly. I swear guys, I legit feel like I’m going crazy and it’s just exhausting! I don’t know why but today is just wearing me out and I’m already so ready for a drink and Netflix in bed.

Sorry to the people who read this that are grossed out by periods or whatever but sometimes being a girl really sucks and mama needed to vent. Besides, now we can all rest easy in knowing that it’s PMS rather than Just Pissed! 😉

Okay, now for some questions. Ladies, how do you deal with PMS? Gentlemen, what do you do when a lady in your life is PMSing (Staying away is not an acceptable answer!!)? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Monday Update: Lil Red Edition

Monday Update: Lil Red Edition

Howdy! I feel like I haven’t updated you guys too much lately on what is going on in the world of Lil Red and let me tell you – my life is a doozey! I have eight weeks left until I graduate from Cuyahoga Community College with my Associate of Arts degree. My full time course load is in combination with three jobs, volunteering for Canine Lifeline, coaching figure skating for the Special Olympics, and still having some semblance of a social life. All the while, I am planning my trip to Europe for the spring of 2017. Holy moly!!

To say that I am ready to graduate is an understatement. Without constant homework, I would still be doing a lot but to add it on top of everything else is getting to be a bit much, to say the least! Naturally, during the home stretch, all I can think of is wanting to do anything but school work! And, of course I had to put off my hardest classes until my very last semester because would I even be a college kid if I didn’t? Sigh.

Every single day for the past eight weeks has brought about new challenges and these following eight weeks are really going to be testing me. I just have to keep thinking about the end goal which is a nice little diploma with my name on it! College life is hard. Work life is hard. And you know what? Right now, life in general is just hard. What I could really use is a nice, long vacation. But, for now, that will be limited to this twenty minute blogging break instead!

As you can tell by this Monday Update: Lil Red Edition, I am in the midst of some trying times! So I need all of you to leave me some suggestions on how you deal with your life when everything starts too feel like a bit “too much”. What are some of your best time management tricks? How do you work in time to relax during a jam packed day? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Change Of Plans

Heyyy everyone! There’s going to be a slight change of plans for tonight’s American Horror Story: Hotel post because I’m feeling like ass right now. Because of this all of a sudden illness, you can expect to see a synopsis on the newest AHS episode tomorrow morning or afternoon. Of course I’ll be watching the epi and taking my notes but I’m in desperate need of a good nights sleep. In a perfect world, I’ll be able to get right to bed afterwards and get rid of this little bug that I’ve come down with. Sorry for the inconvenience! Much love. -Sarah

heey

^^^ Thanks, Ryan.

Monday Update: A Moment Of Silence Edition

Monday Update: A Moment Of Silence Edition

Hey everyone and happy Monday!! So this weekend was full of exciting, shameful, and not too noisy events so let’s get to it and discuss in this Monday Update: A Moment Of Silence Edition:

Let’s start with some good news: One of my best friends on the planet, Tyler, came home for the long Labor Day weekend! Tyler is currently enlisted in the Army and lives in California. He began his journey in October of last year and that was also the last time that I saw him until yesterday! Tyler was so insanely busy this weekend, as there was a wedding he had to attend on top of all of the friends and family that he had to see, so I am SO incredibly thankful that he was able to pencil me in!

Tyler stopped over at my place for an hour or so bearing Pumpkin Spice Latte frappachinos and infinite hugs to ease my ugly crying. I seriously can’t even describe to you guys what it felt like to see him and hug him for the first time in an entire year. When he got out of the car I ran into his arms at full speed and he held me and let me cry for as long as I needed to. I knew for a fact that I was going to be emotional during our reunion but I had no idea that it was going to be like that! The only way I can describe seeing him again was perfect. It was really really perfect.

After lots of hugs and crying outside, we went into my house for chit chatting and staring at each other in disbelief that we were finally together in real life. Hanging out with him felt exactly like it did when he lived in Ohio – our banter was endless and effortless and we were able to laugh at the dumbest little things. I’m so happy that Tyler and I communicate frequently via text and FaceTime because we were able to talk about our most recent endeavors and stories rather than cram a years worth of information into one hour.

I wish that our hour together could have gone on forever but like all good things, it had to end. Before we even exited my house I was already crying. It didn’t feel fair that one of my best friends was finally standing in front of me in the flesh rather than on a phone screen and he had to leave so soon. Seeing Tyler for the first time resulted in tears of joy but my goodbye tears were the epitome of ugly crying. Even though Tyler had places to go, he let me hug him and give him an abundance of cheek kisses for another five minutes before he drove off. He’s so sweet! :*)

Almost a year ago, Tyler and I had a very similar interaction when he left for California and I’ll tell you what – the goodbyes never get any easier. As we texted later that afternoon he described our get together as “bittersweet” and I couldn’t have said it better myself. The bittersweet-ness was so real considering my first tears were so happy and my goodbye ones were of the purest sadness. There’s things that you forget about people when you haven’t seen them in so long. I couldn’t believe that I forgot Tyler’s staggering height – especially in comparison to mine. I forgot the way that when we hug my head doesn’t even reach his shoulders. I forgot what it felt like to hear his voice with my own ears rather than on a speaker. Tyler is always going to be one of my best friends and the fact that we haven’t seen each other in forever but could pick up right where we left off completely solidified that for me. I love him so so much and I can’t wait for the holiday season so he can come home again soon! ❤

Now let’s get to the part of the Update where we tie the title into one of my stories. As I mentioned last week, mama was not feeling too hot at all and unfortunately, I still feel like hell! Hurrayyy! The remnants of my sickness when the weekend rolled around was a sore throat. Now the remnants of my sore throat is that my voice is completely gone! Allow me to explain:

Long story short, Saturday was a day of intense drinking for me. While I was sick during the week, I wasn’t smoking at all but of course, when I drink, I always smoke like a damn cowboy. During my drinking excursions, I managed to cough through a half a pack of ciggies and told myself that I’d be fine after. APPARENTLY NOT! I was on my Lindsay Lohan too hard and when I woke up Sunday morning it was almost comical to see myself open my mouth to speak and have nothing come out. Luckily, I had about two hours of salvageable speaking in the morning because I would have been so devastated if I couldn’t talk with Tyler!

ANYWHO, for the remainder of Sunday my day was spent mouthing words or writing out short phrases on a notepad to communicate. I figured that after a day of resting my tired voice that I would be fine…APPARENTLY NOT! I woke up this morning eager to test my pipes out and nothing came out. I kind of felt like the Little Mermaid though…so that was cool. My Moments Of Silence have turned into a day and a half of not speaking and honestly I’m going fucking crazy. It frustrated me to the point that I was almost crying yesterday when I wanted to tell my family something and literally couldn’t. So if everyone could take a Moment Of Silence and send some good vibes Lil Red’s way, I’d be forever grateful and will join you in your moment…because I have no other choice. #FML

Monday Update: nfnjngvhtfsuj Edition -__-

Heyy everyone and happy Monday! I hope all of you who celebrated had a wonderful Easter yesterday or just had a great normal day….I know I didn’t. -__- Here’s my current tale of woe that left me feeling horrible AND incapable of even coming up with a comprehensive title for this post:

SO, as you guys know, I was really sick last week with the flu. It was awful, miserable, and every other bad adjective that I can think of. I had gone to the doctor, and he said not much could be done as far as medication goes to help get rid of my problem, but he did prescribe me some antibiotics to help ease some of my symptoms like my cough. I had started taking the antibiotics the following day and the day after, and I couldn’t notice a significant difference. But at that point, I was already starting to feel better on my own. By Friday, I was feeling well enough to be out and about, so like a fucking goon I thought that meant that I could stop taking my antibiotics. I mean, I was feeling better and they weren’t really helping any to begin with, so certainly that’s okay right? WRONG. Little did I know, you’re not supposed to stop taking the antibiotics until your prescription is completely done for risk of secondary infections. And naturally…this bitch got a secondary infection. I started feeling a little less than 100% on Saturday night, but I thought that I was just tired. Wrong, again. By the time I woke up on Sunday morning, I was in a right state of god awful. I was sweaty, dizzy, and out of breath even though I didn’t do anything but wake my sorry ass up. My body ached, my cough was coming back, and I was so upset I could have started crying. When I went downstairs to tell my mom the latest sucky news in the shit show that is my life, she immediately asked me if I was still taking my antibiotics. My mom is a doctor, and when I told her no she almost had a cow. “Didn’t I teach you better” and blah, blah, blah. So that’s when I learned that it’s a big no no to not take your meds! So for all of Sunday, I was stuck in bed feeling a hot ass wreck. Honestly, I felt more sick on Sunday than I did at any point during my stint with the flu. I was SO dizzy and clammy. It was weird because I was also hungry ALL the time yesterday. I had no appetite but I was so starving and even when I would eat, I was still hungry after. So I’m not really sure what that side effect means, but I don’t plan on Googleing it because I’ll probably convince myself that I’m dying. Anyways, here I am now, feeling better than yesterday but still not great by any means. I still have the aches and the sweats, so I guess today is another day of binge watching season two of Orange Is The New Black. I’m just so annoyed because this second sickness stint is completely and totally my fault, and now all there’s left for me to do is just wait to feel better again like I did before. #FML :(((

sickoo

^^Basically me in a nut shell.

So here I am again a week later from my first Monday Update about being sick, writing another Monday Update about being sick. Worst. Week. Ever. I hope all of you are having a better day than mine! How was your Easter? Did you do anything special to celebrate. I wanna live vicariously through you (lol), so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

Hump Day Update: STILL Sick Edition -___-

Hump Day Update: STILL Sick Edition -___-

Howdy gang and happy Hump Day! Guess what?! I’m STILL sick. Fml, fml, FML. I’m going on day four of misery so let me bring you up to speed with what’s been going on these past few days in the wonderful (and by wonderful I mean god awful) world of Lil Red.

Monday: In continuation of my last post, I went to the doctor on Monday afternoon and I was diagnosed with the flu. I was actually pretty disappointed about that. I wish that I had strep so I could get some antibiotics to cure it and be on my merry way. Unfortunately with the flu there’s not much you can do other than wait it out. The only good thing about going to see the doctor, was that the doc seeing me was a TOTAL babe. My only regret is that I didn’t look better for him. Quite frankly, he’s lucky I even put a bra on to go see him – but that’s neither here nor there. Anyways, SHAZAM and hubba hubba, because Mr. Doctor was looking mighty fine! I felt like death, but his staggering good looks gave me a glimmer of hope that everything would be okay. #hotfordoctor SO YEAH, Monday I was miserable and yada yada yada. I had really bad night sweats Monday night. I mean really bad. Like a body shaped pool of sweat on my sheets bad. Like my sleep shirt and skin were drenched in sweat bad. It was wicked gross, but I felt really skinny when I woke up so that was a plus I suppose. Ha!

Tuesday: Tuesday morning is when I have to be in Cleveland for class, and of course that didn’t happen which I was actually really mad about. I never thought I’d live to see the day that I was mad about not being able to go to school! I set my alarm to wake me up so I had time to get ready just in case by some miracle I felt better, but it took one minute of me being awake to decide to go back to bed. Tuesday I didn’t do much other than lay in bed and watch TV. (The 19 Kids and Counting wedding episode for Jessa was on and it was so cute!!) I was extremely achey all day and if I was out of bed for too long I started feeling dizzy. My chest has been hurting pretty bad these past few days as well from constantly coughing up a storm. I slept okay on Tuesday night, only waking up twice to cough for fifteen minutes straight and then pass out again. Like Monday night, I had really bad night sweats again. Lol it grosses me out because I’m the farthest thing away from a sweaty person and my sicko night sweats have been the most I’ve sweat in my entire life. Because girls don’t sweat, they glisten. 😉

dandy!

Hump Day: Still sick. Still miserable. What else is new? I’m hoping that today is the day I can rest up and kick this flu in the ass for good because I NEED to get to school tomorrow. I have a quiz in math to take and I’d prefer to be somewhat healthy when I’m driving to Cleveland and sitting in a classroom for two hours. Ugh. -___-

Well guys I’m off to get some homework done and some Netflix watched so I will talk to you all later! Hopefully on the next post I’ll be a healthy woman! What are some home remedies for the flu that you swear by? I’m up for any suggestions, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -A still sick and still miserable Sarah
