Miraculous Something

I went in knowing I would buy the same style push up I always pick out. The sales lady asked if I wanted to try on their new bra and I said sure. Am I the only one that sees the commercial at least once a day? Anyways. The bra sold itself and I bought it. In white...and then I changed my when I got home and wanted black which of course they didn't have in my size. I'm waiting to see if they'll get it in the next few weeks, until then I have store credit, and no bra. Which really makes me sad because it really is a miraculous bra. They picked a good name. Its well made, it has good hardware it really holds you in there ha! Need the cleavage or not, either way its a great bra. At least, its my favorite! Well it will be whenever I get my black one....

Not Me Monday

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!

Out Of The Box

She loves a good box. Cardboard, plastic, wicker is her favorite... As long as it is square and she can fit inside...Well even if she cant, she'll still have a blast. Many times I've caught her sleeping in the pink box my boots came in... Just this week a FedEx box was mailed and she has been all over it. I love that she is a cat in the box, its quite funny to see her play around in there, plus it's a cheap/convenient way to keep her happy!

Happy Thanksgiving.
I'm so thankful for My Life, My Family, My Boyfriend,
My Health, My Happiness, My Safety, The Pets

Little things that make life a little more enjoyable for me are things like
Having Someone To Cuddle With Every Night
The Office, Funniest Show Ever
Not Having To Drive. Ever. Thanks Babe.
Chocolate Ice cream
Pink Ink Pens
Having Cute Pets
Bobby Flay Throwdown (only show BF will watch on FN)
Jamba Juice
Cheap Reality Shows (vh1 has the best so very ridiculous its funny)
My Boyfriend Watching Sons Of Anarchy While I Blog
Garnier Fructis Mousse
Cowboys/Raiders Game & DCC Finale
J & I Being Employed
Fleece Blankets
no fuss dinner Frozen Foods
The Leaves On The Trees In My Neighborhood
So Black Friday? Its easy for me to say no thanks to the deals, even the 32 inch TV for 250$ at (where else? )Target and all the laptop deals going on at best buy. Why is it easy? I don't have $250 to spend anyways haha! I've bundled up and faced the crowds before but this is not my year to return to the craziness.
Hey if your looking for a pumpkin sweet treat, look no further, try this recipe. This is basically my favorite recipe ever for a pumpkin something. Is it still a pie if its rectangular? Anywho, my mom says "I don't really like pumpkin pies, you know, but I really like the pumpkin desert you make." I don't like to make it the night before because it is so hard to keep anyone out of it! Its super easy to make and the leftovers don't stay leftover for long. So yummy I cant wait to eat it!
1 3/4 cups sugar, divided
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cold butter
4 eggs
1 can pumpkin
1 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1 t ground ginger
1/2 t ground cloves
2 cans 12 ounces each evaporated milk
In bowl, combine 1/4 cup sugar and flour, cut in butter until the mixture resembles crumbs. Press in 13X9. Next, mix all other ingredients. Pour in crust. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 and bake for 50 minutes or until the filling is set. Cut into squares top with whipped cream blah blah blah.

The Opposite Of A Cake Boss

My sister called me the other night with a crisis. She was baking a cake, she failed. Not surprising. Cake was supposed to be taken to her early a.m class so she was freaking out. And of course she had no box mixes for backup, and not all the ingredients for anything else homemade. So here is where I come in. It was late but I wasn't tired yet for some reason so I whipped up a Betty Crocker butter recipe chocolate cake in no time. I am such a good sister. I was planning on piping "Nursing 2010" in red frosting, but it looked more pink than red so I "wrote" it in sprinkles. It came out really cute and she was super grateful. I'm super grateful the cooking gene skipped her and landed with me. When I say skipped her, I mean it, she would have trouble following the directions to boiled water! Ha! Although she is blessed to have the medical skill/nursing gene that got her through the program, I'm glad the cooking one landed with me and not her. I have my cooking/baking skills and can always call her, my family nurse if I need more than a bandaid :) So you know what looks like something I'd like...Well I don't even have a Wii but if I did, I think I would totally be playing that game from Food Network! Looks so fun!

Show Us Your Life!

The dog has always been attached to me, whenever I leave the room his eyes don't leave from whichever direction I last went. He knows when the car pulls up, I'm home. Ok so don't laugh, but me and J will stand by each other and call the dog to us, fighting for his attention to see who he will come to first right. So I'm used to winning in like 2 seconds but I've been noticing for awhile now that J is giving me a run for my money. Its quite surprising actually to have to work a little hard to get him to come to me! I got the dog three years ago and have been with J for about two and a half...They have so become attached, I love it. The dog is trained fairly well and has only one major problem, his spastic barking! Sometimes its ridiculous. He loves the dog park, but more than that, he loves himself a ride in the car! He gets so excited to jump in and sit on my lap/look out the window/sleep if its a long drive. He's basically a 5 pound magnet I cannot take him anywhere, car or place, without getting attention. Mostly from elderly people and kids. Especially when hes wearing a shirt =) I get at least 5 "aww puppy!"s ha!
I wish I could get the collage bigger but I am not so computer savvy.The cat, we adopted her together, shes our little baby. She'll be two years next spring. She sleeps on my side of the bed Sh for some reason. She loves to eat, but she love love loves fresh water! She knows when I'm holding her dish full of fresh water and she gets excited. If you ever met a bratty cat, this is her. She is very much a princess. She meows until someone feeds her. Someone is J, because I refuse to fall for that meow I haven't ate in a month when I just watched her polish off her whole portion. Does that explain the tummy? Yes, shes extremelya little tubby. If you cant tell by the pictures, trust me. I find it so funny when I call her fat fat fatty. But the boyfriend does not. I am totally on my own because those two are on a team! I try to diet her and ration her food but she totally has my boyfriend wrapped around her finger. Daddy's girl much. Couch scratching and knocking over everything in sight, she gets off the hook with the big guy. She can do no wrong in his eyes. She is the cutest cat in the world though, so its hard to stay mad at her for very long!

If you have never checked out Kelly's Korner, please do so! I haven't ever linked up to any of her "Show Us Your Life" posts, so I was so super excited for this one!

Here's My Review

Previously, I've been a sucker for packaging. Well...A cool shaped bottle with awesome looking beads too!? In the basket you go. I opted for green, the purple smelled a little too flowery and I try to go for soaps that J can also use in case his stuff runs out. Soooo. Its good. It is slowly turning into a favorite. It lathers up alot. Which works really good for leg shaving. The two best parts: 1-how cool it looks, 2-how soft the whole "serum" deal leaves my skin. Really.

Since were on body washes....Axe Dark Temptation was the last product J picked out for himself. I'll review it for him. Great, yes sure we'd buy it again. He smells so good. Guy soap is the best. (smell)
I hate lotion. I don't like dry skin, but I really don't like lotion. It feels greasy. Yes I've tried different ones. They feel greasy. And I cant stand my palms feeling all lotion-y! Like I ask J to put lotion on my legs and arms for me because I hate it being on my hands so much. Those days are over. From someone picky that doesn't really like lotion, this one is awesome. Arms and legs, feet. Its light enough you don't feel it on your skin but you feel it, if that makes any sense! But I love that! Its light enough to smell your perfume over. Hoooooray.

Thats A Good Question

How should teachers handle students texting during classtime?
Honestly it would be easier for me to debate this topic than to find solutions for it. Text messaging interrupts the entire class. Really!? I just can't agree that discretely tapping a touch screen disrupts the whole class. I find myself good to go, as long as its on silent of course. Whatever I cant help it! I have a boyfriend that I like to check in with and send ILY's to, and a Mom with the same network! (hello free texts!) I'm not obnoxious about it, and sometimes it really is vital, example I text J to tell him when I'm ready to be picked up.

How should teachers handle students texting during classtime?
If you didn't know, teachers find texting in class extremely disrespectful and unacceptable.

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!

Pair Of Genes

Jeans, I do adore.
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 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 :)!

Not Me!

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!

Baby, It's So Easy Loving You

I'm sick and tired of droids and transformers.
Done with dinosaurs & pirates.
I am light sabered-out. Bionicles I've had enough of.
But the nephew himself.
Never ever sick of him. Can't get enough.
Its been such a cozy weekend with the bf.
So lovely.
It just comes natural =)

Wishy Washy

Sunday afternoon I applied to UGA. Sunday night, we were laying in bed, watching TV. I put my chin on his chest and my eyes welled up as I shamefully admitted my cold feet in regards to moving. I am extra thankful that he is extra patient and understanding about everything. He guessed right what was wrong right away, he knows how close I am with my family. I first got cold feet thinking about all the things I'd miss seeing my nephew do in elementary school the next few years. Cold feet for me doesn't necessarily mean the plan is cancelled...I want to go "be a young person out in the world", as my Dad calls it. But I just keep thinking its soooo faaarrr away. Didn't I sound so convinced and confident here? Ha! I've only been excited thinking about starting what will be a new adventure in a new town trying to make new friends and all that, but the excitement was gone and I was only overwhelmed. Every time I think about how much I'd miss my fam, I find myself on google looking at local universities. LOL. But I really do want to go, I picked GA for a reason and I do want to experience it...But...Ugh. So many mixed thoughts all over the place. And where besides this page am I going to put them all? Well anyways...This weekend...I'm going to shop online for the birthday boy =) Hopefully we can just relax, and I'll squeeze in some studying in between football watching and laundry...Oh and my nephew will be with us Friday & Saturday night while my sister works! Oh and last thing, Just a Girl has this fabulous DIY gift gathering thing going on, and through it I found a blog with what looks like a super fun project. I wanted to save it for him for Christmas but I think it would be a fun activity to do with him this weekend! (thanks JAG & L2C)Fun, but messy I'm thinking.

Wishful Wednesday


'I wish' .... I never had to do _______ again!

I despise all cleaning, really.
The thought of cleaning the bathroom makes me sick, that's J's chore.
Picking up and straightening is not so bad.
I don't mind laundry unless the garage is super cold.
But I cant stand dishes, so I wish I never had to dirty dishes again!
Something about the food bits and everything washed down the sink at once, so gross!
Thank goodness we have a good system and my boyfriend doesn't mind kitchen duty.
Putting away leftovers and unloading clean silverware- I don't mind!
But leftover plates & utensils from dinner plus whatever I cooked it in, I try not to go near!
Wishful Wednesday comes from the Seattle Smith's blog, go visit =)

Why You Bloggin

Blogs are like books. Each post is a page.

Such a variety, there are many out there I enjoy reading...

Mommy blogs, Bride to be blogs, Family blogs, Business/Shopping blogs, Cooking, Decorating...All different kinds!

Nosy? Not. I just like to read!

Plus, through your blogs...

-Recipes. It is so nice to find recipes from all you out there. Dinners, desserts- easy, more difficult, all yummy! Browsing blogs for holiday recipes is my latest kick.

I can always find what I'm looking for...

-A smile. Some posts are heartwarming. Some are aw romantic. Some are "aw cute!" All of those get my smile.

-A jaw drop. Babies crying, kids lost, all those mishaps make me feel a little less clumsy!

-A laugh out loud. Which is the point where my boyfriend looks at me like he knows for sure I am definitely crazy. I prove my not craziness by sharing whichever blog post (maybe yours!?) I was laughing at.

-If you mixed our TV remote in with 50 others, I would say lost for good. J would pick it right out. When I don't really feel like watching UFC, College Football Final, or, Worlds Most Shocking Videos, what am I to do? Ummm... This is where all those lovely blogs out there come in! Were together, side by side..Just I'm watching this screen and he's watching that one. Good trade, and when I'm lucky he'll rub my feet! (fyi: lucky=when I ask ha!)

So thank you for sharing the recipes, the pictures, the funny stories, the sad ones. Thanks for the ideas. Thanks for making me feel less rotten about washing the same load of laundry twice. Thank you for giving me something to read.

So. Open the book, turn the page. Open a tab, read a post. Right? =)

Tuesday's List

Fall Fashion & Accessories.

Boots. On the top of many favorite lists I assume because there are so many cute pairs out there! My VS shoes & accessories catalogue for example. I loveeee mine! (focus on boots please excuse cats paws and my toes) With dresses, jeans, tights...They are perfect...It hasn't been too cold out lately but when it is, I break out the old faithful Uggies. =) Yes that's what I call them.

Zip up sweaters. Simple I know, but not boring-I have been finding cute ones everywhere. Old Navy had a great striped one and another I bought from Target is turning into a favorite.

Beanies. Not on me, no! J is hot stuff in his and I am always trying to convince him to wear it! Ha!

Scarves. & For some reason they look better on everyone else! All the ladies I've seen wearing them look great, but for some reason it takes me forever to give myself the 'outfit OK' when wearing one. But I have a black&white check print that I'm trying to breakout.

Tuesdays list is from this adorable blog that I have been lurkinglooking at...She has this fun Tuesday list thing and some yummy sounding recipes too.
I wish I had more time and energy to list other fall faves, but I am really exhausted! Class, work, no dinner, loooonnggg night class and really no time in between, kicked my butt! I cant wait to sleep but am sad J has to leave early I'll be cold in the a.m without him to cuddle :( Speaking of J, he made me stop typing to watch the Avatar commercial. Looks OK from the previews? I don't know! Nite!

If Looks Were Everything

What is that?
Dark Chocolate Fudge with Vanilla Frosting.
My Mom bought stencils from Michael's.
Stencils for Christmas baking. Trees, wreath, etc.
They are supposed to work with colored sugar.
She said they did not. Proof is in the picture.
Is there anything I can do with this now?
She asked me, in regards to the "shapes" left by the not so cool stencils.
She bustled about in a couple drawers.
Layed a cookie cutter down,
And shook her sprinkles.
Into a tree, two stars, and an upside down candy cane.
She handed me a fork and said,
Well I'm glad I decided to practice Christmas!
Me too. Because if this was her actual Christmas cake, oh man!
I love my Mom and her practice cake was yummy ;)
*Note* Pictures were not taken with consent.
My arm was batted away as I captured these fabulous decorations.

Months of searching states & universities was like walking in a big circle, because in the end I was back at the starting point, with the school I had originally thought of first. Yes, I requested information and looked over numerous admissions pages. So many campuses looked nice. LSU sent me tons of great info...But in the back of my mind, there was always Georgia. Moving to a whole new state is huge, so the slightest bit of comfort I feel is really reassuring. How do you know if its right? Well a visit helps..(were working on finances for that) but actually, applying is the first step of this process. The $60 application, I will complete tomorrow. Applying. Applying, it hit me. I want to apply to UGA because I want to get in to UGA. This is the school I've decided I want to attend, and I'm only starting to feel stronger about that. You see my heart will be broken if this is not possible. My way or the highway kind of thing. You need to apply elsewhere as a backup...No, I don't want to go anywhere else. I want to get accepted there. I want to pack everything up and go start a new chapter in life... in a new state, at a new school, with the love of my life...So...I pray...This time next year, instead of watching on CBS, hopefully I will be at an SEC game because that's the school I attend.

I Just Want To Go To Dallas And Dance

"I'm going to Dallas to dance Mom!"
"With Kelli Finglass!"
Some reason this made my Mom go into a fit of laughter. If you don't know who Kelli is (director of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders) because you don't watch my all time favorite show in the world, shes the boss, she calls all the shots and her botox seems to get better each season which is how my mom remembers her. Anyways. I've been following this show for the seasons its been on and I'm pretty much obsessed. How obsessed? If I could have anything in the world, it would be a spot on that squad ha! Dallas' squad is one of the most known in the whole league. They are awesome dancers and cheerleaders, and gorgeous!
"You know, if you want to find out who makes the team you could probably go online and find out."
-The Boyfriend.
Thank you boyfriend but I actually enjoy the program and like watching what happens, not just who gets cut. So the only one that seems to like this show is me. An episode saved on DVR totally makes my night ha! Something Everything about it I love! Starting with the boots that I really don't have words for because they are that cute. And the shorts! White shorts are my favorite and I would love to try and squeeze into those. And all those stars! The cleavage the top creates? The pom poms! Yes, I'd love to get into that uniform and hop around, but I'll stay home on the couch to watch the show and leave the dancin to the pros!

Twice As Nice As Pumpkin Pie

Yummy recipes? Bakerella has got it goin on! The recipe for Pumpkin Pie Bites has been on her site for a while and I had been thinking about making it as Thanksgiving dessert. Well I decided to test run it for Halloween and Ohh My Goodness! Arent they cute? And pretty easy to make! They are so good! And by good I mean bad ha! They are like bite size pumpkin pies that you could eat a ton of! No need for slicing pie just grab one of these! My boyfriend opens the Tupperware that I put them in and picks one out each time he walks through the kitchen! So if J or myself start to look a little heavier around the middle, I think I might know why...Ha! But seriously. Bakerella has some fabulous recipes. I have been wanting to try and make these but I am always somewhere else (bed) when it is prime time breakfast time. Morning sshmorning. One more time can I just say that Bakerella has some great recipes?! I am so looking forward to trying out this one next!


As in Victoria's Secret? Yeah, I have an underwear problem...the problem being there are too many pairs of cute underwear out there and I do not work enough jobs to buy them all. Its OK. I take extra long walking by any departments underwear monthly VS catalog (good mail) is always something I'm happy to see, but I was even more excited for the bigger & better first volume of the Christmas catalogue! It came the other day and I got through 39 of 179 lovely pages before putting the catalogue down to process everything I just put on my mental wish list. The bras are cute and everything, but I have my old faithful push ups so I'm kind of more team underwear than team bra. Type of underwear? Not too picky. Hiphuggers, boyshorts, thongs, lace, cotton...Lace is one of my favorites. I don't know if everyone is aware Christmas is in less than 60 days? It has me thinking, what would be cuter, the clothes worn for Christmas or whats underneath? And I think bows are just so cute! Especially this and these. I really hope somebody thinks I was good this year, because I would be absolutely thrilled to receive either as Christmas presents ha! OK so these... Really. Saved the best for last. If its the only link you click from this post . These these these right here. Make sure you get the alternate view you know front and back. Well that's it. Now all I need is $1000 gift card to the lovely store.
