Confessions

What do you even begin to open back up to the interwebs when it’s literally been almost months since you’ve let them in? I guess the only fair thing to do is to lay it all on the line. Because I know you won’t judge…

I confess…

  • Last week my reader had almost 1000 unread blog posts…I “marked all as read”.  This doesn’t mean that I don’t love and miss you.
  • I’ve been reading the same book since December…everyone else seems to have loved it, and I just can’t get into it.  Regardless of this, I still have 4 other books sitting on my nightstand uncracked. This is so embarrassing.
  • Some days I want to be Taylor Swift. For serious. She’s so adorable and well dressed and smart and happy.
  • I follow Miley Cyrus on Twitter.
  • Two years ago, I thought I knew what I wanted in life. It’s amazing how life can change in such a small amount of time.
  • I am attracted to all the wrong men.
  • The happiest hour of my day is when I’m dancing.
  • I buy far too many dancing clothes.
  • I own a too many unworn shoes, clothing with tags attached, books unread…but I don’t own a vacuum. The idea of purchasing one makes me a bit ill.
  • I think I missed my calling as a ballroom dancer. I love the drama of it all.
  • I’ve been keeping super busy so that I don’t remember that I’m super lonley.
  • I will try my best to start to write more again, but I can’t make any promises!

Anything you want to tell me?

Things Filling My Head

Warning…random post ahead. But don’t worry, I’ve catagorized my random thoughts.

SYTYCD: I’m so sad that it’s over. I wish that they did it more than once a year. A lot of other shows get 2 runs, I think that they should too. I also think this season had the best choreography ever, and some of the best dancers. I thought that it was nice that they gave the top girl some cash too! She deserves it. It’s too hard to compare male and female dancers.

Speaking of TV Shows I love…

Run’s House: I love it. Especially Diggy. He’s so stinkin’ cute! I’m so glad it’s back on the air. I wish that I was on Run’s Daily Email blast. But then I found this link and you can sign up!

The MK Conspiracy: I love Miss A’s Blog. She’s so cute. She went on a sabbatical for a while and I’m so glad that she’s back. She posted this link that has me thinking perhaps there was a conspericy.

Big Sexy Books: I need to read my book this weekend. I’ve been meaning to start it, but I’ve been so busy (and distracted by Breaking Dawn)…book club is Monday, I better get going!

Running: 13 Miles is going to be a lot of miles. Ugh.

Shopping: I want to go buy all kinds of stuff for my house. But I have so many other things I need to be doing with my money!

Flowers: It’s so hot here, my flowers are frying. I’m so sad, not to mention that I spent a ton of dollars on them!

Olympics: I’m so excited. I love gymnastics, diving, syncro, and swimming. Men in swimsuits, shirtless with amazing bodies…enough said.

Work: I’m in the last Q of my year, and I’m hoping I can pull something out of the dust. It would be so nice to book one more order before we close out the year. I’m working super hard. Wish me luck! Speaking of…I need to get on it!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Borrowing Blogging Brilliance

I started blogging about a year ago and since have found a few blogs that I’m in love with, some of those include Brandy’s and Brookem’s. I pretty much have blog crushes on them. Some days I feel like they’re taking the words out of my head and putting them on their own sites.

Brookem has All the Wine filling in for her this week, and she lead me to this little (long) survey that Brookem and Brandy did well over a year ago. I love it, and it had me thinking. So I decided to steal it!


I am
Overly emotional, girly as can be, strong willed, open minded, indecisive, compassionate, predictable and outgoing.

I want
a swimming pool in my complex, a four day work week every week, a house keeper to come once a week to clean bathrooms and scrub floors, a big sexy that I have an incredible chemistry with to sweep me off my feet, happiness for my family and friends, four extra hours in the day, to loose 10 pounds but still be able to eat what ever I want, diamond stud earrings and a larger closet.

I have
an amazing life, some of the best girlfriends in America, the cutest dog in the world, a career that I love (most days), a very large, very close family and a cute condo that I own!

I wish
I had more control of my emotions. There are people I wish I had more feelings for, and people I wish I could forget about. I wish my that my friends/family lived closer or that there was a more affordable way for them to get to me at a reasonable speed. I also wish that Charlotte would pass a smoking ban for restaurants and bars.

I hate
ranch dressing, mayo, mustard…most condiments actually. The texture of sushi and mushrooms. I really hate people who drive slow in the fast lane (although there are days where I’m so that girl), people who complain all the time, rain on the weekends, runs in my pantyhose, wearing pantyhose period, chipped nail polish, and Bath and Body Works (I do like their wall flowers thought).

I fear
that NC and SC will pass a cell phone law and I won’t be able to chat in the car when I’m driving for work and that would end my world as I know it. I fear my company will figure out that blogger and facebook still make it through my VPN. I fear bad guys that live in my hood will think about breaking into my car, house or stealing my dog. Speaking of my dog…I fear that she will run off her leash and get hit by a car in front of me and I won’t know what to do.

I hear
my iPod all day long. I tend to get a song that I love and play it until I can’t stand it any more.

I search
Google and Wikipedia all the time for instant gratification for the answers to the questions that I need/want to know. I also search google maps and my bitch in a box to get me to where I need to go.

I wonder
where my life will be in the next 3, 5 or 10 years, who will win the presidential election, if Branglina will ever get married, how much US Weekly pays Spencer and Heidi to get a story from them each week… why anyone cares about Spencer and Heidi, why ANTM never becomes a Top Model, what the man of my dreams looks like and what my dog is thinking. Just to name a few.

I regret
not saving more money, not going on spring break more in college, not going to graduate school right after undergrad, quitting violin lessons, not taking better care of my American Girl dolls, not scrap booking…where are all my pictures?, not pushing myself harder when I was younger.

I love
that there are a million thing to love in life. Here are just a few of them.

I ache
from the bruises that magically show up on Monday mornings after a long weekend. I have no idea how they get there…I guess I just bruise easily.

I always
press snooze, sleep on the right side of the bed, drink oj in the morning, underestimate the time that it takes to get things done, have my blackberry in hand and reapply lip gloss 100 times a day.

I usually
talk to my mother daily, get dressed in workout clothes and never make it to the gym, drink hazelnut coffee, Grey Goose and water with lemon, and diet coke.

I am not
shy (I would talk to a wall until it talked back), good at running or frugal enough.

I dance
all the time…at Zumba class, in my shower, while I’m running, at the bar (even when no one else is), down the isle at the grocery, with my neighbors in their living room. Pretty much every chance I get. It’s good for the soul.

I sing
as long as there’s music playing, even if I don’t know the words…especially in the car. I think if I turn the volume up as loud as it goes I might be the next American Idol. This also gets me in big trouble because every time I’ve gotten a speeding ticket it’s because I was singing.

I never
take my Tiffany heart ring off. I wear it everyday. I keep hoping that just because my bff is getting married that she will still wear hers too!

I rarely
am at a loss for words, run early, miss a sale at Nordstrom or an episode of ANTM.

I cry
all the time…when I’m sad, angry, happy, when I watch weddings or baby stories on TV, and a large number of Disney Cartoons.

I am not always
in a good mood, some days I’m pretty grumpy and your best bet is to just let me be…it will pass.

I lose
everything, all the time. I would loose my head if it wasn’t attached to my body. The funniest part is that whatever I lost is usually right under my nose.

I’m confused
easily.

I miss
my family (they all live so far away), Pop Tarts, my far off friends, Sex and the City, being in college, sorority theme parties, dance class, Malone’s Restaurant (the food, not the work), recess, gaucho pants being “in” (they were so comfy), Britney Spears glory days, being able to wear pony tails (My hair has been super short for almost 2 years now) and wearing a size 2.

I need
hugs, MAC lip gloss, pink nail polish, high high heels, kisses from my dog, girls night out, alone nights in, good books, cold pillows, more patience and less drama.

I should
Get off the computer, go to the gym and clean my house.

Talent and Looks…How did they get so lucky?

I love celebs, but I rarely blog about them. This is mostly due to so many other blogs like Perez, Just Jared and Pink is the New Blog, that have a pretty good hold on this market. Not to mention that I don’t have the extra bucks to pay a camera crew to get the newest and hottest pics.

This week’s 10 is your favorite actors/actresses. This is in no order what so ever. It’s hard to put the boys and girls all in one group…but here’s my go.

  1. Audrey Hepburn– An American Icon. Impeccable style and class. A wonderful humanitarian with an amazing talent. My hands down favorite of all time!
  2. Jack Nicholson– He’s had dozens of quotable movies that will be watched for decades.
  3. Reese Witherspoon-I love almost everything she is in. She’s always changing it up a bit, and I think she’s super classy and has great style (especially since her divorce).
  4. Matthew McConaughey– If you look up Big Sexy in Wikipedia, this is what you get. Truth be told, the OBS reminds me of him a bit…it must be that Southern Charm.
  5. Scarlett Johansson-She pretty much just screams I’m Big Sexy! I love that she’s not skin and bones. I love her timeless look. Not to mention that I think she’s a decant actress.
  6. Leonardo DiCaprio– I have loved him since Growing Pains. I think he’s one of the best actors of our time and that he will be around for years and years to come.
  7. Bette Midler– Say what you wish about this pick, but Beaches, The First Wives Club and Gypsy are some of my favorite movies ever.
  8. Morgan Freeman– He’s pretty great. All his movies leave me on the edge of my seat.
  9. Nicole Kidman– She’s an amazing talent. I would also like to steal her wardrobe and personal trainer and husband.
  10. Brad Pitt– Because you’re hot. HOT. HOT. HOT. (I know Brandy disagrees, but he can adopt me any day.)

**My little sister would be sad if I didn’t give a shout out to her Big Sexy Actor James Franco.

  1. The presidential race will not be what people expect it to be.

  10. I will run the bridge in Charleston!

The Other Boleyn Girl

As you all know, I needed somthing to read to follow up my Twilight series and give me something to take my mind off the writers strike and lack of quality television. My friend Erika, pictured above, told me that I needed to read The Other Boleyn Girl, by Philippa Gregory.

After spending my entire weekend, with my nose in a book and staying up until 3 am last night, I’ve finally finished. It was so good. I wish that they would had taught us all the juicy stuff in high school history. I would have paid more attention!

You better hurry up and read the book before the movie comes out Feb. 29th! Scarlett Johansen as Mary, and Natalie Portman as Anne…it looks delicious!

The More Boys I Meet

Why can’t they be like the one’s that mean everything to me

The warm and loyal, open and friendly

It’s not like I’m not trying’

Cause I’ll give anyone a shot once

I close my eyes

And, I kiss that frog

Each time finding

The more boys I meet the more I love my Dog.
