So I have been working on something a little special.

I noticed my blog writing was lacking and it was a real disappointment to myself. I decided that I really wanted to get back into enjoying my blog and have been contemplating purchasing my own domain that would allow me to customize my blog the exact way I wanted to.

So the other day when I was in a really crummy mood I decided I was going to make myself happy and just go for it. I wanted to start fresh with a new blog that represented my style.

I would like to introduce...

A Tale Of Two C's

I really wanted to change my blog name to something that 1.) defined me 2.) was unique but a little personal as well.

The story behind the name goes as so..

When I was little my mom hated the nickname "Court" and she refused to let any family member call me that. So she decided to name me Courtney Catherine and nickname me "CC". Now that I am older, all my friends and co-workers call me "Court" (sorry mom) but my entire family calls me CC. 

I really hope you stop by and follow the new and improved blog of mine!!!

but I should mention.. bare with me as I learn the ropes of the new program. I am slowly tweaking the design and settings so if it doesn't look right at first, I will get there!

Welcome Home!

2 posts in one day!
What has the world come to?
Just kidding.
 I wanted to include this in the last post
but decided that it needs a post all of its own.

On July 1, 2013..
Travis came home from his first (and hopefully only)
tour in Afghanistan!

Welcome Home, Trav!
We love you so much
and are so so proud of you!

His family was there to welcome him home!
I am so happy to see my best friend's family happy 
and together again!

Thank you Travis.
For all that you do and all that you sacrifice!


Chat Stew

Let's chat shal we?

First of all I am sitting here drinking my morning cup of coffee (something I haven't done in weeks) and watching Live with Kelly & Michael. One of the best shows ever? I think so! Goodness they are so funny. So Michael of Kelly, if you are reading this.. keep making me laugh, you make me feel motivated to start a fun productive day!

Moving on.
Who is excited to see the second Dispicable Me? This girl! I literally can not wait to see those little yellow munchkins! I mean come on.. how can you not adore these things..

Has anyone heard of guanabana? Neither had I. Until I took a vitamin water out of the fridge and saw this.

Let me tell you.. it. is. delicious. Run out and grab yourself a strawberry-guanabana vitamin water, you will not be disappointed!

I have been trying to eat better. I fractured my foot so I am out of commission when it comes to exercising. Therefore I have taken on a low-fat low-card diet for the time being so I don't look like whale at the end of this. Wish me luck everyone.. I like my sweets and bread.

Que drastic change in mood..
on a serious note it is hard to accept defeat, especially when you strive so hard to succeed. No one likes the feeling of failure. I don't like the feeling of failing especially on an exam that determines my career. I received my results for my Child Life exam and I missed the passing grade by 15 points.

"Are you kidding me! 15 points! 15 points, Courtney you couldn't have upped your game for three questions?!" That is what has been going on in my head for the last couple weeks. Sure I talk to my family and friends and they are so supportive (thank you all!) and I understand that it is not the end of the world and I can take it again in the fall, but I feel like a total failure. Defeated. Embarrassed. and low.

Time to schedule more studying into my schedule. I thought I was done with this crap! But I have accepted that I need to re-take the exam in November and rock the socks off that test. Wish me luck!

And with that, I am going to shower and find a quiet cafe to look over material and drink some yummy tea. Have a fabulous Wednesday, everyone!
