I like how "pretty darn real" looks and sounds, so that's what is published in my post.
But in "real" life I might replace that darn with an F bomb.
Tell the truth.
Don't lie, keep it 100.

I'm checking my voicemail.
Done checking my voicemail.
I tell BF,
Wipeout called, they want ya!
It was hot that day. And it took a lot of gas to get there.
They had us fill out a book of papers for nothing. Seriously. Signing your life away, agreeing to never mention the audition process or them having contact with you. (ha) Whole lotta signing my name for nothing.
I replied with a grumpy I don't knowwww their kinda stupid we should boycott. He laughed. Well I guess I can still be a sore loser and still watch but just wish it was me. Stupid Wipeout though! But yea we'll still watch.
I'm pretty bad with scheduled posts...but when I have a spare minute and I haven't blogged in a while I'll usually post like 5 times in one day though so maybe look forward to that :)
Hope you are nothing but well while I'm away. xo.

Chooosing the right college/school for you should end and begin with Victoria's Secret. First, view their "Pink" Collegiate collection, and if you don't see a schools color and logo printed on cute sweatpants and underwear, then, that school is out. No longer an option. Keep lookin.
Now flash way back to elementary school and start to get real familiar with your states, if you aren't already. Arkansas is above Louisiana and all that. Become BFFS with the site that lists all Universities by state. Spend some time at Kelly Korner, reading her posts like this one mentioning "College Gamedays". Check out how hardcore the commenter's are raving about "their team", notice the states their from and this should help you in getting some ideas for school choices. Look at the adorable little girl dressed in Arkansas Hogs attire until your convinced you want to be a part of the SEC. Then, go to this site that Kelly had linked to, they'll hopefully list the schools your considering, then you can begin imagine yourself dressed in something cute in your schools colors.
Then, visit this blog here, be inspired by another adorable dress, and proceed to visit both websites that are linked to. This will result in you being overwhelmed at all the possibility's of cute things that have your University name stamped on them.
Is this shopping or choosing a future University? Well who's asking because if it was my Mom then its totally choosing a future educational establishment. If its you,well then you definitely know me and know I totally based my school decisions off of clothes from VS and what not, I pretty much picked the state half blindfolded ;) so yes this is kind of just shopping for future clothes ;)
Everybody wears them.
Sooooo toss your options around for a while. State info, school info, requirements blah blah blah. Google will be as faithful as it can be in providing optimal search results. Which is not much so that's always fun.
What I'm telling you next is very important.
probably the only thing you needed to read in this post. And yes I know they are oh so cute but unless you want to wear your University of Florida sweatpants to the University of Alabama basketball games, then you better avoid the temptation to order early! Wait til you've got your admissions letter and you know where your going.
Thennnnn, go back to Victoria's Secret. You know for sure what school your going to, order away friend!
Oh and have fun at school.
Because that's whats its about.

Have you ever been to any kind of Pet store where they have cards? You know, get well, regular Hallmark looking like ones except their usually all animals on the greeting cards. Anyways, Mothers Day I received two of those.
One card cover; a kitten playing a harp. Not sure about that...I don't play the harp & neither does our cat.
The other; a little terrier in a tub all soapy.That one I loved because I am the only dog bather between the two of us.
How impressive he took the time to stop and browse the card section while he was there getting dog food. Their our fur babies so its a nice gesture and the cards were so cute. He said "Did you notice I wrote sloppy so it would like theirs!" Totally noticed, and it totally looked like
3 Year Anniversary. We are broke and saving any available money for the big move so we've been agreeing to no nothing for everything. Or I guess only I have been agreeing. So tell me why did I roll over and wake up to a big bag of M&Ms (omg yay) and a card in an envelope reading "I Love You". Who likes reading sweet nothings getting watery eyes in bed, 25 seconds after first awaking?
I guess I do!
But only when those sweet nothings are something like; "I hope you have a great anniversary day, mine is already great because I have you."
I don't usually like being lied to, but that was really sweet.
All that Princessy-ness of mine, I don't understand at all how he does it. There are times I think to myself, I know I'm being so difficult right now. So if I know that, imagine him, poor guy.
But he loves it. He loves me. He gets me. And he makes jokes about me not having to vacuum. Don't know how it works but sounds like a keeper to me.
I know one day he's going to be a great Father.
I felt like an ass reading my card and eating my M&Ms wishing I would have gotten him something even though we said we weren't.
So I got the ball rolling, and for once I'm going to be looking like the most nicest significant other ;)
So how about a Fathers Day-from-the-dog-card. What? I didn't know they made them either so I saw it and had to get it. I'm gonna leave it next to his wallet so he sees it in the morning, first thing! And his picture folder inside his wallet is equipped with a fresh new photo of him and I from my graduation. We'll see how long it takes him to notice its there. I've left little "I love you notes" in his wallet before and I forget about them because he takes forever to finally see it!

Wahhhh. Help I'm lost.

Do you have fabulous furniture and if so
Soooo tell me where did you get your bedroom from?!

I have recieved a real nice compliment before.
In my world, telling someone "they have a great/fabulous attitude", well that comment goes into the "nicest things you can ever say to someone" category.
I don't toot my own horn too much, only when I'm feeling really Princessy you know.
I believe attitude is everything.
And well, to keep it real, receiving that compliment totally made me want to toot my own horn and since its not something I do often, well, I'm doing it. And I really hope this counts as Pouring Your Heart Out...but what am I thinking of course it does because the lovely Shell(xo!) from Things I Cant Say, says "really, it's anything that YOU consider pouring your heart out." So this post totally qualifies and thanks in advance if you read it :)
My attitude is fabulous. No not 100% of the time, but I work real hard to keep it up for at least mostly high 90%s. Actually I don't have to work too hard though, alot of it just comes with my personality; soft spoken, kind of quiet, doesn't want to be the center of attention all the time, polite, cheerful, etc. On my club volleyball team, I wasn't the girl that got a red card for kicking the volleyball like a soccer ball across the gym after a bad call, I was the girl that was friends with that girl that kicked it. I was never the girl that liked to get wasted and be ridiculously loud and crazy. I was the girl that was best friends with her and made sure she got home safely. Yes I love me some gossip, but I'm the girl that wont get be the start of it, or really any big part of it. Sitting there quietly and listening (laughing in my head in awe of things I've heard) works better for me.
I have an everythings gonna be alright attitude for the most part. I have called 911, hysterical inside, yet perfectly calm and collected on the phone with the operator. I can make it through a stressful situation and still manage to not lose my head or my cell phone. Sometimes. I know that things can be fixed, and even if they cant, I know they could be a lot worse.
This is where me and Momma differ, how we see "the cup". I see: a pretty glass half full filled with my favorite drink. Momma sees it: a dirty broken cup half empty with holes in it and nooo wayyyy can it be fixed.
Umm yeahhh. Her thinking is the sky is falling, and "what if" it snows! (in a town that hasn't gotten snow in 30+ years.) I cant and hate doing that. You can play "what ifs" all day and it wont get you anywhere. Yea sometimes its good to have "what ifs" and therefore have back up plans and etc, but only so much. If it snows, then it snows. NO I don't have snow boots but that's okay, I'll bundle in what I do have. What if my boyfriend doesn't find a job when we move right away? Well that's not going to hold me back from moving. I know theres so many people out there that have packed up and started new and I have faith I can do it. If he doesn't find a job right away, all we can do is keep looking.
I'm not one to stay down and focus on the negatives. In our little "tiffs" I'll tell BF "I hate fighting, I don't like to be mad its a waste of time! Being happy is a choice, and a choice I choose indeed! Yes I'm mad, but I don't want to keep this attitude you know? (but its so freaking hard to get rid of it sometimes!)
If I don't quite hear you, I will always say, "pardon?" Some people respond with a laugh and a "you sound like an old lady!" Umm that's okay, I adore manners.
I'm not quite sure what my boiling point is. I'm horrible with saying no and I have the mindset of "I don't want anyone to be mad at me" so I stretch myself thin sometimes.
My Mom and I have our ups and downs and really low downs lol, but theres not a day I don't thank her for raising me the way she did! I love feeling like I'm a great girlfriend, a hard working employee. Sure I have it set it in my head that I'm a Princess that is forever exempt from all house cleaning. Yes I would sleep in til noon everyday if I could. But, if those are my worst qualities, I think that's all okay. I'm happy with where I am so far in life. I would settle and just be glad for the success of NOT living in a cardboard box at the riverbottom with my cat, so the fact that I'm going to college, working, not super rushed for kids/marriage(oh but I am!) and haven't gotten arrested, well, it really makes me want to give myself a pat on the back. And ohh how I hate giving myself those, reminds me of a creepy substitute from 1st grade and I just think its the cheesiest stupidest thing ever ha! But anyways, kudos to me, and Mom, I guess she did something right raising me lol!

I dedicate those lovey dovey pictures to my boyfranddd. Happy 3 years! :)
We were all ready and dressed to go to dinner, the dinner we were paying for with a gift card right. I'm putting my shoes on, BF asks me where the beloved card is and my heart immediately sank. I lost it, I had no clue where it was. I had looked up the menu and got ready for nothing. Looking forward to going out to eat, and then having to stay home and cook, how sucky. But thank newborn 6ounce baby Jesus my boyfriend really is an angel saint nun type of guy who's number one strength in life is finding all the things I cant seem to keep track of. The Chili's card was very stickily stuck to another gift card, resulting in the look of 1 gift card but it was really two stuck together. I couldn't tell. All that matters is we had a fab dinner :)
I didn't stuff my face too much so when we came home I had a sweet tooth. I stood in front of the pantry, staring at a jar of peanut butter long enough to finally want to make peanut butter cookies, so that's what I made. I was feeling really large and in charge so I went ahead and softened some ice cream. Resulting in, cookie sandwiches. Yes I started demolishing mine before I thought to take a picture so I had to snag BF's so I could do my photography.
So why do I say Microsoft iTouch? Well first it was just to make fun of BF but then it kind of stuck. When I first got it, I would always refer to it by saying "hand me my phone, grab my phones please, etc." BF would correct me every freaking time, "its not even a phone, its not really a phone." OKAY! I obviously know the electronic device is not really a phone but I guess I just cant call it that. Nope, no since in shortening what I'm saying. So now he can laugh, shake his head or roll his eyes all he wants when I use any of the phrases, "wheres my Microsoft Apple iTouch? Hand me my Microsoft Windows iTouch please." He wanted to get technical ;)
But I guess you haven't really seen anything in life until you've seen Poodle creations/decorating. What? I know, I said wtf right before I got sucked in to some special show they had on TLC. A competition pageant type of thing, featuring crazy cut & colored poodles. How did I not know about this. I had to make BF watch 2 minutes of it, I'd say it was a high point of the weekend, hah! I'm really serious; that's a poodle not a panda?!!!!
