I do not have a fatty cat, nor do I have a red velvet choker with white fuzz made for cats. A cat looking like she has full blown Christmas spirit? So not me!
I did not drive all the way to the mall, only to come home with one lousy gift. One lousy coffee cup (its not really lousy, its got beautiful red roses on it and I know my grandma will love it). But still. Why would I waste the gas, time, and outfit? Exactly. It took me longer to get there and park then it did for me to pick out and pay for the mug. One store, 10 minutes, then back home. Feeling unmotivated, overwhelmed, and not in the mood to deal with the crowd of shoppers? Not me!
So the other day I met up with my Dad at Starbucks for a drink before I had to go in to work. I told him to give me a minute while I stared up at the menu. (I'm team Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf) I probably looked lost or like I was trying to read a foreign language. Well I finally decided to go for a caramel apple spice. I've always heard alot about Starbucks holiday drinks but never tried one. Not love it? Not me! It was not too sweet! I loved the taste of sweet apple juice with extra sugar mixed with milk, carmel and some more sugar topped with whipped cream. Hold the drink in my hand and pretend to sip it and then throw it away before walking in to work?
=) Not me!
One more thing, while googling carmel apple spice, I stumbled upon these.
Tell me these are not cute, I tell you your crazy! Oh and Don't forget to stop by MckMama's!

Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. Definitely one of my favorites, wish there were more episodes!
Gossip Girl. I was pretty obsessed with the books when I was a teen so I'm not surprised I like the show so much. What is surprising is that I can get the BF to tune in! All that drama just sucks you right in ha!
I get all my news from E! News.
Reality TV. My guilty pleasure. Sometimes I'd rather see the craziness of people on cheaply made shows rather than a deep CSI type storyline. The best of the worst that I can not get enough of? Tough Love, For The Love Of RayJ & Dr.Drew Sex Rehab all on Vh1. And I've always been a fan of Bravo's Real Housewives.
Thursday Night Funny TV: The Office, 30 Rock, Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia. My comedy section, look forward to this night of laughs!
Any show on Food Network. The one channel I never get to watch. Ohh the things you do for love! When BF is not home I get my fix by watching Ina, Giada, Paula D & Sandra Lee with no break in between ha!
Shows on HGTV, TLC, & Discovery, etc: Spice Up My Kitchen, Cake Boss... Even a good nature show or documentary!
Thats pretty much our must haves & DVR list! Throw in some UFC, football & basketball and that's basically TV for us!

Neither the pumpkin or apple desserts we had for Thanksgiving tasted very good, so I didn't have a second serving of apple crisp with vanilla ice cream. Yuck, not me. Oh and don't let anyone tell you my dinner on Friday night looked the same as the night before. So not true, so not me! And I do not believe in eating late, so you know I would never cut myself a piece of pumpkin desert, after 9 o'clock pm. That would not be good on my sensitive stomach. You see if these were my eating habits, I would have woke up on Saturday morning not feeling good or something...So all of that? Not Me!
Black Friday? I for sure was not going out shopping. Everyone knows I'm not a morning person, especially my boyfriend, so there is really no point in even trying to wake me up at such a ridiculous hour. Which is why I did not set my alarm for 5 o'clock in the morning. It would have gone something like, me not even hearing the alarm and my boyfriend turning it off and asking me if I was getting up to go, to which my reply would have been
pulling the covers over me no thanks. Me getting up is a joke, which is why I again, did not even bother setting my alarm for early hours. Not Me!
Just because the dog looked so cute sleeping all curled up in a ball, doesn't mean I snapped a picture of him. Just because my boyfriend and I consider our pets our children, doesn't mean I would text him that picture and title it "sleeping baby". Not me!

I would try mountains.
4. What's your least favorite chore/household duty?

Someone they know, I get alot of "you look familiar"s.
6. Do you prefer parties and socializing or staying home with the family?
Well I like to go out if its somewhere I really want to be and I have a good outfit. Other than that, total homebody! Nothing beats cuddling on the couch...and with a fire going? Then you've really got me lol.
7. What's your all time favorite movie?
Titanic. All time favorite favorite I stop to watch it every time its on TV! All of it.
8. Do you sleep in your make-up or remove it like a good little girl every night?
I sleep in it! Eeeee I know, so bad! Ill use remover if I remember. But I don't wear alot though and usually shower before bed so all that's really left is eyeliner.
9. Do you have a hidden talent or a deep desire to learn something that you've never had a chance to learn? What is it?

I think fresh bread smells sooo good.
13. Tell something about you that you know irritates people.
Two things, I lose/misplace everything and, I can never make up my mind. I misplace my phone, atm card, everything. Then I find it somewhere random. I try to get J to make all the decisions. What to eat, what to wear, I can never decide on anything.
14. When you have extra money, what's the first thing you think to do with it?
Extra money? Whats that mean?! Ha!
15. Are you a silent laugher or a loud laugher? What makes you laugh the hardest?

Not sure about which store but I love trying on jeans.
17. What's one thing you'd do more often if you had more time?

So frugal! I don't have the big bucks right now to be buying things that aren't of necessity. I'm a sales & coupons kind of gal.
19. Who is your favorite character of all time? (from a movie or a book, can't be real)
20. Would you want to be famous?
Not so much for the fame but all the great clothes, makeup, fabulous purses, well ok.

Seeing as how I am one of those "students that texts in class" I am having a
brainfreezeihavenoideawhattowrite little trouble coming up with a detailed solution, to what appears to be a situation teachers are dealing with from middle school to college. What works? Take the phone away? Embarrass them? Watch them send the message, pick the pen back up and resume working!? Take points away?
Anyways, anyone stopping by my blog pleeeeeease leave a suggestion I obviously need all the help I can get!
I was ecstatic when I first discovered Abercrombie & Fitch's version of "long" because it is truly long. I'm a tall girl and still end up walking on my pairs.
So, my sister, same genes =) Lets burn her out quickly by talking about the jean section of her fabulousdoesntevendescribeit closet. Citizens, R&R, 7s. I haven't been in there lately but shes got to have at least 25 pairs folded and hanging. I know right? I think I'm going to look for the licences plate frame that says something like "this car stops at all Nordstroms", for her Christmas gift.
My Joe's Jeans. They are a couple years old. Thanks to cold hard cash and a leftover Macy's gift card. I remember standing in the store, holding onto the jeans thinking, you wear jeans almost every day these are worth it. My first $100+ pair of jeans. But they have that ballet slipper fit; slides on smooth and hugs all the right spots so they fit just right. So worth it. The man knows they can make an outfit complete(not sure how many times I've said "set out my joes please"). I'm working on paying down the plastic...so there's not a spot for a new pair in my budget. However there is a spot on the Christmas list! And its like what a month away!? =)
Can't speak for anyone else but I live in jeans (and dresses :)!

Since being in a relationship with J, I did not completely forget how to pump gas. Not me! I still remember you have to pay first and foremost. Pressing the "regular" button repeatedly and pumping the gas nozzle furiously, before realizing you still have to slide the card and enter zipcode. Not me, I know and still totally remember how to do that. Just because my gentleman is the one to pump 99% of the time doesn't mean I would absolutely forget how the whole gas fill up thing works, Not me!
I am regular about grocery trips and all that. So it was not me that was stuck looking into an empty refrigerator at dinner time. Not me that cooked maple bacon and Pillsbury Cinnamon rolls and called it dinner. So Not me! Where is the protein in that? Exactly. Not Me!
I didn't sleep in this weekend past eleven. I did not wake up to find washed cars, finished laundry, a clean house, and a clean bathroom. J is not a great boyfriend to do such things. I am not so lucky. Not me!
One last thing I definitely did not just do. Add the DCC Yoga Dvd to my Christmas list. Not me!
See what MckMama and everyone else have not been doing!
