Fill in the blank friday.

I know its not Friday, but I am so excited to participate.

Yay for fill in the blank friday! This came from here, what a great idea!

1. If I weren't a s student/creative director/bartender I'd love to be own a fabulous shop with baked goods and neat things everywhere and maybe teach kindergarten art and music class.

2. When I'm super upset I cry and say things out loud, crazy things. Sometimes I search for song that deals with the crazy thing I'm upset about. Then I get hungry and not hungry all at the same time and question everything, I also start to think I have a terminal disease and its really no good. Will is pretty good at calming me down even if it is a tedious project .

3. My favorite thing about myself is my desire to do things and go places and smile. My smile is pretty alright, even if my teeth aren't perfect.

4. If I found a $100 in the pocket of last winter's coat I'd spend it on something awesome. I would call Will and say ahhh I found a hundred dollars lets go to dinner and shop and see a movie and go bowling or something! Frozen Yogurt!

5. Even though some people might consider this a flaw, I love my ability to say yes a lot and not stay tooooo angry at people, more so than not it is for the best, even if I do get walked over a lot.

6. I love the way I feel when Will and I spend all day together and laugh and then want to spend the whole next day together again and even though we are really tired we stay up and chit chat and fall asleep giggling. This happens a lot :)

7. I love my hair most when it's got the I feel asleep with it wet look in the back, you can't make awesome true volume like that I miss it being long sometimes though.

It is nice to take a moment and think of things like this so you don't forget :)


Some great photographs that made me smile today while flippin through my iphoto library

I'm so lucky.

Anna don't kill me for posting the photo of us in France. I love it.


beauty beauty beauty

I just want to thank this girl for posting this as her favorite song. I have found a new addiction for sure.


"I'll love you till you're lonely, then I'll love you some more just before, ohh"

new smile.

Today I found out that I will officially be getting my teeth fixed. They are atrocious. I accept full responsibility for it as well. ( but my fingers also point towards some of my elders who let it get that bad, what kind of a real human would I be if my mind didn't conjure up some blame once in a while?) No hard feelings though, now its time to look towards the future. Lots of things to smile about I am sure. I am so pumped to get to show off my sweet teeth again :)

I am living proof that when there is a will there is way (no pun intended, but maybe he really is my good luck charm).

Onward and Upward!


The last of the first and other thoughts.

Today was my last first day of school. To be honest, I have been in a funk all day since getting up around 4 am to get to the airport to leave DC. So sad to leave my nanz (Anna). Oats and I have been in a daze for the rest of the day after arriving back here in Houston, with 75 degree weather, what? Talk about a mind (insert inappropriate word here). The cats decided to pee at the front door a lot while we were gone, so that was glorious to come home too. I did miss them so though.

Onto the school part. It was awful. My only class on tuesdays is a night class and it is about communication law and ethics. The teacher is still a lawyer and uses it as an excuse to be very rude it seems and overall I am just not thrilled. I had to withdraw from his class once a couple of years ago because he has a ZERO tardy policy and the class is at 5:30 which makes it impossible to make it there through rush hour traffic from work. He drops you if you are late more than twice. Crazy.

I miss having girl friends to chit chat with like on the east coast...

Ok wow, enough complaining. Here are some things I am happy about.
I got my Singer Esteem II sewing machine today :)
I have the best boyfriend in the universe.
I also have the some of the best friends ever and I am so thankful I was able to visit them and that I still have some close, even though we are all always busy.
We got healthy groceries tonight :)
Tomorrow I am going to start my new workout routine!
And... I have a new client to meet tomorrow.

Also about a bajillion other things, including all of the great blogs I get to read!

I promise to do a full update on the trip tomorrow, for now it is sleepy time so I am not so grouchy tomorrow.


2 hours to go...

Oh the happy times...

In 2 hours my beloved Anna will be driving Will and I to the airport to head back to Texas. Sad day. City testing has been a blast though, expect exciting posts about our adventures and pretty pictures soon!


Tomorrow is my last first day of school!!

Doing something nice.

This lovely blog is donating 25 cents to support Haiti for every person that reposts this survey. A great way to get people involved. I found her blog via this one (a new fav for sure!)

So here it goes!

1. Hair color..Au naturale..or not?
It usually is, then recenlty I gave in and had it colored. Of course, they did not do the right color. No more hair dying for me!

2. If somebody has food in their teeth or lipstick on their teeth do you tell them?
Yes! I would hate it if someone didn't tell me so I just assume everyone is the same. Plus it can be funny.

3. Would you rather have a million dollars or your vision of the perfect body?

Can I spend the million dollars on good healthy food and yoga?

4. Favorite magazine?


5. Bra style..lacey or plain?
Plain, but soon I plan on lacey.

6. If you walked into Victoria's Secret..would you most likely come out with something sexy or comfy?

Comfy, the sexy stuff is made for people who are as skinny as a rail. Its sad, maybe someday, along with the lacey bra.

7. Do you fake and bake?
Nope, it smells funny in those places. I am more of a winter/fall person anyways, the seasons where not much skin is shown :)

8. What's your favorite body part on a man?

Hands and shoulders, fo sho.

Ta Da!!!


away to D.C.

In DC!! Yay anna just made some fabulous cookies, best chocolate chip cookies ever.

Will and I are diggin this city.

NYC was pretty fab too.

It's supposed to snow in the morning :) I am pretty sure I am one of the only people here who is excited, but I think it is magical. Despite this bone chilling cold that I have never experienced until now, I can't wait to play outside in the winter wonderland.

Hello east coast, nice to meet you.

We are about to go to bed here in Philadelphia to get up in the morning and take the chinatown bus to NYC. We have been having so much fun it is unreal! Oats has a really great best friend who has been showing us around and letting us crash in his living room. It feels like a real vacation though, we even took one night to just go on a date to the movies and hang out at a sweet pub right down the street. We are feeling a little bit like the movie away we go minus the baby part.
So far we are definitely getting the vibe that we belong on the east coast, philly is amazing.
This picture basically sums up the past couple of days, expect more later :)


I apologize.

So this year I participated in Micela's lovely ornament swap and I have yet to blog about the sweet little gift I received! Funny enough my random blog partner has the same name as me. Without further suspense I would like to thank Chelsea! Check out this awesome ornament!

I named it alf :)

Thank you!



I am off to a healthy lunch with my love in the 2010! Some great things have been taking place recently.

My nanzi is home.

I love the wii fit.

I love my love, Oats

I promise to post something a little more coherent later tonight. Cheers!
