always alexandria's greatest hits {2.}...

It is day two in celebrating my blog's almost second birthday! I hope you all enjoyed the revolting post that I picked yesterday, if you didn't get to check it out click here. Now onto the next hit...

This isn't a happy, funny, cheerful post. But it is a raw, loving, real post. This was one of the hardest times I have ever been through and this blog and all of my ibffs support meant so much to me.

always alexandria's greatest hits {1.}...

This week something awesome happens. On August 18th, this Thursday, it will be my blog's second birthday. Sometimes it seems like I have been blogging for decades, and other times it feels like I am still a newbie to the blog world. But the point is that I have been blogging for two years. A silly little site that I named and put together all because I was on summer break from college and discovered other people's blogs. Something I thought I would maybe stick with for two weeks. Maybe. But no. I stuck to it. While I may not post as often as I use to, or as often as I would like to, I still love my blog.

To commemorate my blog birfday, I am going to post 'Always Alexandria's Greatest Hits'. This will be me linking back to *my* favorite posts. Maybe you have read them, maybe not, but I am going to start a little trip down memory lane.

This post was possibly one of the most sicknast things that I have ever witnessed, but it was also SO freaking hilarious. Enjoy...

30 post photo challenge {9.}...

I am continuing on with the 30 post photo challenge. Even though it is taking me forever, I am getting there! Here we go with day 9...

Post #9: A picture of the person who has gotten you through the most...This one is a no brainer. My mama has always been my 'person'. No one has been there for me like her. If I can grow up to be half the woman she is I will be one blessed gal. She is amazing, end of story.

Who has gotten YOU through the most? Please share in the comments section.

wise words wednesday {31.}...

I have this friend, her name is Ashton. I met her via Blog Land and she has become one of my best friends. In fact in a couple of weeks I am hopping on a plane to Las Vegas to spend the weekend with Ash, and our other bestie Lauren, who I also met through blogging! Anywho, Ashton is wise beyond her years and she gives some of the best advice. I jokingly call her 'Mama Ashton'. Some of her best advice is only a couple of words long, "Pull your life together." Thus inspiring this weeks wise words...

{31.} Wise Words...

This week I will attempt to pull it together. I also know that if I don't, I can sent a rant filled email to Ashton and Lauren and they will still love me through it.

iphone photos {4.}...

Oh, blog pals how I have missed you all! I really have no excuse for my absence but I truly miss blogging. I am going to try to get back into the groove of posting on a regular basis. I am so grateful for my iPhone; it helps me capture many of the moments of my days via photographs. Let me catch you up on what has been happening in my neck of the woods. If you are one of those people who are sick of posts full of instagram photos...well move along right about now.

My life as of late...

{1.} Mama and Bug celebrating their independence.

{2.} My new Otterbox case to keep my precious iPhone safe and sound.

{3.} Hootie ring.

{4.} My houndstooth nails. They were tacky but awesome all at the same time.

{5.} Yours truly with entirely too much makeup on. The things I did for Work Bff Tania's wedding...

{6.} 'Cause baby she's a firework.

{7.} Me and my Bug-a-Boo.

{8.} Summer when you are six. As it should be.

{9.} This is what my drive to work looks like. Country livin'.

{10.} That is me rocking a Mama Made scarf to work.

{11.} I tried some MAC red lipstick. It's called 'Ruby Woo', do we like?

{12.} Why yes. I am driving a caged van. That is just one of the perks of working for mental health.

{13.} I AM MAGICAL. The end.

{14.} I love watching how my tan progresses throughout the summer. Still not as dark as I want to be. Working on it.

{15.} Mint ice cream is how I consoled myself after viewing the final Harry Potter film.

{16.} That one time I went shopping in San Francisco. I spent an entire pay check. No lies.

{17.} A girl after my own heart. She is six and can order her own green tea from Starbucks. *proud*

{18.} This is a daily occurrence in my car on the way to work. I have no shame.

{19.} I am obsessed with OPI Shatter. OBSESSED.

{20.} I love summer.

I am back y'all! I hope to keep up with regular posts!
