30 Posts of Truth, Edition 9

Prompt 9: Someone you didn't want to let go, but just drifted

The only person I can think of is my friend Alyssa.  
We used to hang out a lot during High School, but have drifted apart since.
Occasionally we'll see each other, but we never get to catch up.

For the most part, I'm close to all my old, good friends 
(at least the ones who I want to keep close).

Until next time,

Look Mom, I'm An Artist!

Here's my Vignette--the dang Drawing project that has consumed my life for the past few weeks...

I'm actually kind of proud of it--it's pretty impressive considering the last time I had an art class was in the 5th grade...

BTW, I checked the Russell Stover's website again to see if they had gotten any more caramel pumpkins, but they weren't even on the website.  
However, I did find caramel Santa's (which I didn't even know existed because stores don't sell them). 

So, of course, I had to buy a few...

Technically, a box of 36...

Best $17 I ever spent...

My Visit to the City of Country Music

Over fall break, I went to Nashville to visit my friend, Erin.
I've been to Nashville twice before so this trip wasn't about sightseeing, it was just to have fun with Erin.

I didn't take a whole lot of pictures (I tend to slack off on picture taking these days), but we definitely had a lot of fun!

Here's a few pictures from the weekend:

We carved a LEGIT pumpkin

We went to her cousin, Laney's, show at the Storyteller Series. 
Go check her music out--Laney Edwards--she's awesome!

Laney opened for Aaron Barker (the guy who wrote the Blue Bell Ice Cream jingle; Baby Blue; I Can Still Make Cheyenne; Easy Come Easy Go; Love Without End, Amen; and What About Now...just to name a few)

It was so cool to meet the man behind the music!

Overall, it was a great weekend and I'm so glad I got to see Erin!

Have you ever seen Headlines on the Tonight Show?
I used to stay up late and watch it once a week.
People send in clips of misprints/stupid ads from magazines or newspapers and Jay Leno mocks them.

Yesterday, I stumbled upon a funny headline. So naturally, I had to share.


This was POOR sign placement but turned out to be quite funny.
Just wash your hands and that pregnancy will go right down the drain!! ha ha.  Everybody's doing it!

Prompt 8: Someone who made your life Hell, or treated you badly

I'm a firm believer in Eleanor Roosevelt's quote: "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."

With that being said, I have not allowed anyone to make my life Hell.
People may try to treat me badly or to make my life hard, but I don't let it get me down.

However, my Drawing teacher isn't making my life very easy right now...ha ha

On another note, I got my cap and gown today!! Yay!
One step closer to graduation!

As soon as I upload my pictures, I will post about my trip to Nashville.
Be excited.

Monday Lustday Series, Edition 8

Today, I have one simple request--a plea, if you will...

PLEASE get me these:

For real, buy me as many as you can find--I'll reimburse you no matter what the cost!

You can only find good chocolate covered caramels during Halloween, V-Day, and Easter times.

I bought Chickasha Walgreen's ENTIRE stash and Walmart (the store that's supposed to have everything) has nothing that compares.  
I thought I could find them online through Russell Stover's website, but they're sold out!
I mean seriously, how can a chocolate store run out of the only good kind of chocolate at such a crucial time as Halloween?? 

It's a sin, I tell you!

There is no way I can make my three remaining caramels last until February...I'll die of caramel withdrawals!!

P.S. If you buy me any kind of chocolate that does not have caramel in it, I will not eat it.  Don't even try to trick me--I won't be laughing.  Every other kind of chocolate is NASTY!

P.S.S. Be looking for soon-to-come updates about my trip to Nashville and my next Truth post! That is, if I survive my dang Drawing projects that are consuming my life...

Until next time,

Fly, Fly Away

I will be leaving for Nashville in less that 24 hours. 
I cannot wait to see Erin!

Due to this trip, I will be taking a leave of absence from my blog until at least Sunday.

Hope you have a great Fall Break!
Don't do anything I wouldn't do ;)

Prompt #7: Someone who has made your life worth living

I know today is Monday, so I should be posting my Monday Lustday post, but I honestly have nothing I want today--my life is pretty great. So, instead, I'm posting another truth.

This question was a pretty easy one--the answer came to me right away.
The person who has made my life worth living for is my best friend, she has known me for 21 years, but she prayed for me long before that. 
In case you haven't figured it out, my mom is the person who has made my life worth living.

Most people can't wait to get away from their mother, but I am the polar opposite; over the years, we have only grown closer.  She is my best friend, my confidant, my advice giver, and my role model.

Prompt #6: something you hope you never have to do

I hope I never have to lose a loved one.  
I want everyone I know and love to die AFTER me. 

I've already lost three people who were close to me, and that was enough pain for a lifetime.

I especially don't want to lose one of my future children--if one of my kids were to die, you better kill me as well.  
I really don't know how people handle it; I know I couldn't...

Prompt #5: something you hope to do in your life

I hope to WILL travel during my life.
I want to see anything and everything there is to see!

On another note, I have finished watching 101 episodes of The Office! Only 29 more to go :)
I feel so accomplished!

30 Posts of Truth, Edition 4

Prompt #4: Something you need to forgive someone for

Hmm...I'm not going to forgive anybody unless they are genuinely sorry and ask for my forgiveness.
But, if I have to list one person, then I'll say that I need to forgive my grandma for how she treated me.

When my parents split, my grandma told me I was worthless and would never amount to anything.
Later that year, she got really sick and was in the hospital, so my mom forced me to go see her.
When I walked into her room, she looked at me and said "Who are you?"
I know, without a doubt, that she hadn't forgotten me already.  
She didn't want me in her life; at that point I was only a memory to her--she would rather just forget me.  

This was 6 years ago, and I'm still upset by it.
If she were to die tomorrow, the last place you would find me would be at her funeral.

Life Lessons From Class, Edition 4

1. Make your significant other sign a prenuptial agreement.
I am completely against this-why get married if you think it will fail??

2.  Don't drink and sign.
In other words, don't get drunk and sign any form of document (i.e. a marriage certificate)

3.  Don't tell you wife what your dependent benefits are or what you gave her in your will, because she will kill you (literally--she'll want the money).

Oh the things my teacher

Prompt 3:  Something you have to forgive yourself for.

This is a really hard question to answer...

I would have to say that the thing I need to forgive myself for is not being there for my brother last year when he got hurt.  I had gone to Texas to visit some friends and was having fun, when he got injured and went to the hospital. It broke my heart when mom called me and told me.  I literally cried the entire way home.  I got home that night and did everything I could to cheer him up, but I just felt so bad that I wasn't there when it happened--not that I could have done anything to prevent the injury, but I could have at least been by his side at the hospital.

It broke my heart even more when, during my 8 hour heart surgery, he sat in the waiting room the entire time and was by my side when I woke up...

Prompt #2: Something You Love About Yourself

If I had answered this question two days ago, I probably would have said I loved that I'm never afraid to share my opinion.  I have an opinion on everything--if you want to hear it, just ask.

However, after last night I thought of something different that I loved about myself.
I love that I'm willing to make a fool out of myself to have fun.
Last night, I went the Barons' Opening Night (which if you read my blog, you knew that); while there, one of the Ice Girls (which, on another note, I'm really upset that I an not an Ice Girl) came up to me and asked me to play a game after the first period.  I briefly thought about saying no--I didn't really care about winning the $100, but I decided to play.  So, after the first period ended, I made Cameron go with me down to the ice--he actually ended up playing a different game on the ice right before I did mine--and I was put on the big screen and instructed to get all the toilet paper off a roll by mummifying myself within 60 seconds.  
See Below:

If you know me at all, you are well aware of the fact that I am not the most graceful person on Earth, nor do I have balance.  You can imagine what happened next...that's right, I busted my butt on the big screen, in front of thousands of people.  

This is a picture RIGHT after I busted it--notice the Ice Girl on my left is bent over laughing her butt off:

Needless to say, I didn't get all the toilet paper off the roll, so I didn't win $100.  However, they did give me a consolation prize that was better than the $100; it proved to be worth my embarrassment!

It ended up being a great night, and an excellent game.  
It only took me 21 years to have the most embarrassing moment of my life.  
At this rate, I should have my happiest moment by the time I'm 40.

30 Posts of Truth, Edition 1

One of my friends has been doing this 30 days of truth writing prompt and I became increasingly intrigued, so alas, I am going to start. 

However, I don't feel like blogging everyday (I like to keep things spontaneous), I'm going to turn it into "30 Posts of Truth."

Hope you enjoy!

Post 1: Something you hate about yourself

I hate that I am a perfectionist.
Sometimes it proves to be helpful (like when it's a meticulous task), but most of the time it just drives me CRAZY.  I want to be one of those slacker students who never shows up to class and never cares about grades. But NO, I have to be that nerd who shows up to every class and takes superb notes to get that A, to keep my excellent GPA.
Surprisingly, I'm not near as OCD as I used to be--I just go with the flow now days, but you better believe that that "flow" is perfect! ha ha

In case you haven't noticed, my Hockey countdown has less that 20 hours remaining, which means the Barons' Season Opener is TODAY!! Oh how I love hockey...

Stay tuned for Post Number 2!

I want these shoes:

Oh, and these GORGEOUS blue pumps:

And this awesome car:

Oh, and because I know my brother reads my blog, I would also greatly appreciate a new pair of OC sweat pants for Christmas (even though I already have 3 pairs).

Please and thanks :)

I have decided that many people are obsessed with the idea of getting married...

Good thing I'm not one of them :)
