Hello! On Father’s Day, my sister and her daughter arrived at our parents’ house at the exact same time that I did. We didn’t plan it at all and it was perfect because we all had the maximum time together before we split back up for the day. Beautiful presents and lots of love were gifted to our dear old dad but I think I got the most special treat of all that day. Check it out:
After presents, we all took a pause and went to the backyard so my niece, Valerie, could move and groove before my sister took off. My dad loves to show Val his flower and vegetable garden and she loves it too. More often than not, you can see my dad smelling the flowers with her and then he will help her pick a bloom for her mom.
On Father’s Day, Val wanted a flower for each hand once she picked her favorite. Then, she toddled up to her auntie and handed me a flower with a big smile on her face. And, right at that moment, our Golden Retriever gobbled up the flower in the hand she wasn’t paying attention to. *Face palm*
Once Val realized her other flower was missing, I offered her mine to make up for it. But, she just kept handing it back to me. I have to say, I was really happy she did because there is literally nothing better than getting a pretty little flower from your fifteen month old niece. I brought it home with me and put it in my dried flower collection and it’s never not going to make me smile whenever I see it. ❤
How did you celebrate Father’s Day? How is your garden doing this summer? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Hi everyone! I want to extend the happiest of late Father’s Day greetings to all of the daddios that celebrated such a special day. I also felt so inclined to share with you my Father’s Day gift purchase for my dad as well as a story about what makes mine the best of the best from when we enjoyed a family lunch this past Saturday. First, take a look at the hilarity that I got him for his beautiful garden:
Not only does my dad have five hundred green thumbs, but he also has a fantastic collection of outdoor decor to add even more charm to his handiwork. You can only have so much of anything, though, and my dad put the kebash on anyone getting him more garden gnomes.
So, to solve the problem, I got him a surefire way to keep the gnomes at bay with the new garden statue seen above. Is it a T-Rex? Godzilla? Or something the world doesn’t even know about yet? I don’t know. BUT, this statue entitled “The Massacre” was a hit for my dad and everyone else in the family. My dad said that “only Sarah would find something like this” but I’ll give you all a hint: I got in on Amazon!
As I’ve said hundreds of times on my blog, my dad really is amazing. And, I was reminded of that when we went out to lunch at First Watch last Saturday. As we waited for our table, an older man gestured for his wife to look at me in all of my tattooed glory and she then proceeded to mean mug the ever living shit out of me. I didn’t know anything was even happening until my dad made a broad gesture and loudly exclaimed “Wow, Sarah, she’s checking you out!”
I was so tickled by this encounter because my dad HATES my tattoos. He’s constantly asking for me to stop getting them and to get laser surgery, lol. But, he hated his daughter getting treated like a member of the freak show at a carnival even more. I didn’t notice the interaction between this couple and, even if I did, I’m used to it. So, it was really touching to know that my dad is literally always looking out for me even when I don’t know it. And, although he might not agree with all of my choices, he still supports and protects me no matter what. #myhero #daddysgirl

Heyyy everyone and happy Monday! I hope all of you had a fabulous weekend and Father’s Day! Mine was alright, but as you can see by the title of this Monday Update, it could have been better because I was feeling like ass this weekend. I had (and still kind of have) a really sore throat and I was just straight up exhausted all weekend. I was sleeping a lot every night – over ten hours, but I would wake up every morning feeling even more tired and achey than before. I’m not sure what brought on this sudden sick spurt, maybe it has something to do with the fact that I was going out a lot last week which could have resulted in the body aches and tiredness. As far as the sore throat goes, it feels kind of strep-like, but I haven’t gone to a doctor or anything – I’m just blaming it on the fact that when I drink I smoke a lot so that’s probably what did it. I spent a lot of my time this weekend in bed cuddling with my Build A Bear minion named Kevin and binge watching Wentworth on Netflix. My handsome prince, Kyle, got me hooked on it and I’m already almost done with season one! HOLLA!
^^^ These were taken when I thought that I was feeling better on Saturday, so I put my makeup and a super cute outfit on. Unfortunately, my “recovery” was just one hour of relief, so I spent the day in bed with my face painted to perfection and a body full of misery. #shameful
On Father’s Day yesterday I was still feeling pretty foul so it was another lazy day…At least I knew better than to put on makeup! For our Father’s Day celebration, my family had a lovely evening of seeing Jurassic World in 3D! I’ve never seen the original, which I should probably do – but we all still really enjoyed it! I have a deep love for Chris Pratt from being a dedicated Parks & Recreation fan, so I loved watching him on the big screen. Mr. Pratt got buff as hell too, so props and a hubba hubba to him! I just really hope that no dinosaurs were harmed in the making of Jurassic World! Other than feeling concerned about that, the movie was great and it definitely lived up to the hype that I was seeing about it! Jurassic World has the Lil Red Seal of Approval for sure and I recommend that all of you see it immediately!
This Monday Update is being made during a much needed study break from my summer classes, which are now more than halfway through! Our midterms were last week and I’m pleased to announce that I have an A in all of my classes, so hurray for me! This post is a lot shorter than most Monday Updates, but I don’t have much to report from the weekend considering that most of it was spent in bed! So that’s that, the Monday Update: Weekend Of Disease Edition. I’m going to get back to work, but I hope all of you have a great rest of your day! How did you spend Father’s Day? Did anything exciting happen over the weekend? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Heyy everyone and happy Sunday/Father’s Day to all of the dads in the world! So during a recent hang out with one of my friends he told me that him and his coworker had a conversation about me. Initially I was like “Oh Jesus” because that made it sound like the conversation was a bad thing, but thankfully I could breathe a sigh of relief because their little chat was actually very flattering! Apparently I’m Facebook friends with the guy who my comrade was talking to and when my name was mentioned he said “Oh, I think I know her – isn’t she a model or something?” I thought it was so sweet and then it reminded me of the countless messages that I get on Facebook weekly asking me if I’m a model or telling me that I should model. Usually I just laugh these compliments off, but secretly (not so secretly now since it’s on my blog!) I really would like to try my hand at some modeling. I suppose I would be pretty good at it and apparently a lot of other people think so too! But to set the record straight, as of now I am no model “or something” – merely just an average gal blogging an average blog! This is also just a round about way of saying how totally thankful and flattered I am for everyone’s lovely comments and compliments…it’s always much appreciated! That being said I think I really should get some photographs taken of yours truly – something that looks professional and not so obviously taken from my iPod by my beloved mother! Lol if anything it will be fun to post on here to show you guys. I’ve actually had quite a few people offer to photograph me, but their body of work is all very risque and that’s definitely not my thing. I’m all about the quirky, sassy, and clothed!! It’s definitely frustrating when my inbox is filled with people wanting to take my picture with my ass hanging out, but what can you do? …Politely decline – that’s what! And believe me, I’m sure that none of ya’ll want to see me in my skivvies! But for the time being I’ll just throw some oldie but goodie pics of me up on lifewithlilred and see what happens. You never know, Tyra Banks might call me for her millionth season of America’s Next Top Model or something! 😉 HOLLA!
^^^ Ayyyyy! I hope all of you have a beautiful time celebrating Father’s Day or doing whatever it is that you do! How are you going to spend the rest of your weekend? Any special Father’s Day plans? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
