Does anyone out there watch Glee?

Okay. I haven't watched it nearly at all, but I started listening to the soundtracks and L-O-V-E love the music!! SO natch I start watching the show, It's also pretty good so far. I hope it keeps my expectations up!

I secretly want to be Rachel Berry.

Well, I want her voice.

And I've got a big giant crush on Artie.

And Finn.

It is so great.

I'm making my decision, Decision made.

I chopped my hair!

Weelll, not chopped, just 3 inches off. I'll post pics soon hopefully. If I can ever remember to charge my camera's battery..


Thanks for the feedback, kids!
Dear DTR,
I love avoiding you. You are scary. But lately, you're getting harder and harder to make go away. I'm going to have to face you at some point. And soon. Before the unknown eats me alive. Okay? Okay.
Sincerely, Erin.

PS. Please go easy on me, I'm very fragile.

The question of the week

Monday, May 24, 2010

Please help

1. Please help because I can't sleep, and I'm being a blogging maniac tonight.
2. Should I grow my hair out:
Or cut it shorter?

This is a question that needs answering ASAP

Charity=True Love=Ment to be At One.

Sunday, May 23, 2010

I figured I needed to end on a happy note for the day.

The church is true.

I don't know how many times I need to say that. Probably infinity+forever. That's how true it is, you guys.

In my sunday school class, my teacher always asks us if we have any questions about life, the gospel, school, work, boyfriends, friends, family, etc. Of course nobody ever really asks questions. Today, though, I had one in mind. Did I have the courage to ask it? No. But how funny that I said a prayer in my heart that my question would be answered. And. It was. We weren't talking about my question persay, but the scriptures we read and the things we talked about really just clicked to me.


It was awesome.

We talked about Faith Hope and Charity.

Read Moroni 7:45. It won't let me copy/paste, darn it.


Pet Peeves part II

Sunday, May 23, 2010

Loud chewers. Crunch noises. Gross.

Hovering over me when I'm reading or typing. Drives me crazy.

If you say you'll see me tomorrow, don't make a liar out of yourself.. And tell me if you've changed your mind.

People with no common sense. Seriously.

I don't like it when people are listening in on my conversation and weren't invited to listen. Also with that, if you happened to hear what story I was telling; don't come up to me later and ask me about it.

Your and You're are different. So are To and Too.

I just really needed to get that off my chest.

on my own

Sunday, May 23, 2010

This Tuesday will be my solo debut.

That's right kids. I will be singing. A solo.


On My Own from Les Miserables

I'm. Freaking. Out.

Not only am I not very good at singing, but I am even worse at performing. I told my family not to come I'm so embarrassed... They're still coming anyway. But I will pretend they won't be there just so I can attempt to perform and not feel idiotic.

I am so nervous! I really want to sound like Lea Salonga when she sings it. I just want her voice, let's be honest here! And let's be honest, I sound nothing like her! Dirty darn.

I'll let you know how it goes.

movie etiquette.

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Alright people.
Went to see Letters to Juliet yesterday.
1. It was SO adorable. Made me tear up a little. {keep in mind, I'm a cryer}
2. Dear woman in front of me...
she was being SO obnoxious.
Nope, she wasn't talking.
I think she must have had a headache or something. But she was SO loud opening her pain killers.. Shaking the bottle. Letting out huge breaths to let the people around her know she was uncomfortable/in pain? I don't really know.
She kept standing up to pull up her pants. Okay, I understand you didn't wear your belt but is it really necessary to stand up 3 times in the middle of the movie to adjust? Right in front of me!? Not pretty!
She kept shaking her cup which only had ice in it. Then crunched her ice.
I really tried hard not to be completely annoyed. I was only mostly annoyed.

What are your pet peeves?

Bridal Gown Guide: Silhouettes

Sunday, May 16, 2010

Okay. I seriously could have this post go on fooorrevverrr. BUT I narrowed it down to only silhouettes. If you have questions about what will look good on your body type, which colors will work best on your skin tone, sleeves, where to look, price ranges (on ANY clothing, not just wedding gowns) Just email me or post a comment on here and I would be more than happy to answer your fashiony questions! :)
I don't know that you can see the numbers for the above Silhouettes.. Anyway, You'll see these silhouettes everywhere. I've included pictures of what everything looks like, also, and what's considered trendy as of now in the bridal fashion world!

1. Sheath

Characteristics: Comes straight down from waistline
Ruffles/Layers are very popular now. This dress is a little dramatic; you'll usually see this done in moderation. I tried to find exaggerated versions of the dresses :)

Short dresses. Very in. Not traditional at all... But still done! Hm!

2. Sheath-Empire Waistline
Characteristics: Same as Sheath, but with a waistline that comes just under the bust or at the natural waistline.

I LOVE this dress. I love how drapey it is. I love the flower detailing(very in right now). And this dress would be ultra flattering on just about anyone. So pretty!

3. Ball Gown
Characteristics: Very full skirt. This is the most traditional silhouette for a wedding gown.

4. A Line

Flowered details, and different ways to add interest are very chic. Whether it be a different fabric, textile, different color somewhere; you'll see the extra oomph of interest in a lot of gowns lately.

Like I said. Simplistic dresses are so chic and very classic. I love that this vintage-classic look is coming back.

5. Mermaid

Sorry I couldn't really find a picture that I loved to post. And this site wouldn't let me save this picture to my computer :)

brown eyed girl

Thursday, May 13, 2010

growing up, I always thought I had brown eyes.

until sixth grade, when all the brown eyed people had to stand up and the blue eyed people had to sit down. I was standing and got in trouble for standing when I had blue eyes. It was the worst day ever!

Since that traumatic experience 12 years ago, I have grown to love my ever changing green/blue/yellow/grey eyes.


I secretly have always wished I had dark brown/black eyes.

And decided to see what I would look like with them. I look funny. I was given my blueish eyes for a reason I guess!

fashion remix part II

Thursday, May 13, 2010

It was my first real attempt at sewing, and I felt ultra stressed via I was the only one on my team who knew how to sew...

Even though it was a great experience last year, I swore I would never do it again. Until the Fashion Institute director emailed the students announcing Fashion Remix for this year. Of course I signed up again.

Here I am with the Interior Design student: Our medium this year is CARPET. Carpet! Can you believe it?! It's going to be insane. I'm extremely excited.

Happy Fashion!

oh man

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

and extra-curricular activities

I may go crazy

"Aerodynamically, the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly.
But the bumblebee doesn't know it, so it goes on flying anyway."
-Mary Kay Ash

Ashley, lovely ashley, posted this on her blog. Okay, 1. Ashley you are amazing.

but 2. Think about it.

Aerodynamically, the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly.

But the bumblebee doesn't know it, so it goes on flying anyway.

I was thinking about this.. You know.. trying to find deeper meaning/applying this to myself. (I tend to do that on occasion).

If someone tells you every day that you can't do something or you shouldn't do something, you start to believe it yourself.

But bumblebee proves it right here. You can do anything you set your mind to! I am in charge of my own future. I can do what ever I want! That's one of the blessings we have living in the USA. We have endless opportunities to do what ever we like and to be what ever we want.

Nothing is holding us back but our own selves. If we listen to criticism and think the impossible isn't acheivable, think again.


I'm feeling so empowered today. I can do anything.

I can be whatever I want to be.

Even if it is 30 different things. If I work hard and seek experiences that are going to help me grow in the direction I want to go, I will get there. Even if it's in 5+ years.


Coming to realizations feels really awesome sometime.

I always knew I could do it.

But having little reminders here and there are always very helpful

{Thanks again Ash, you're amazing.}

what do you think?

k thanks, bye.

I really don't like it when:

Monday, May 3, 2010

I don't appreciate some people who think they know everything..

You know the type.

The ones who give you advice about how to live your life when either they:

A. Haven't experienced it and have no clue what I'm going through.
B. Are just comparing my situation to theirs and don't realize that I am a completely different person and I handle things much differently than them.
C. Expect me to be a certain way and do certain things when that is NOT me at all.

It's super frustrating sometimes, I'm telling you!

I just want to cut everyone** off for a little bit and just do things my own way. With no pressure. No nagging. No questions! No stares.

It's getting slightly annoying.

I'm sorry. But really.

**not everyone... and I really do respect and listen to opinions and suggestions but sometimes it gets a little too much to handle.. you know?

You know those days

when you feel greasy and you feel like you're uglier than sin?

And you just don't feel like yourself?

And you seem to have extremely pretty friends?

And you don't like any of them a little bit for a minute for being so much prettier than you?

Yep. Today is most definitely one of those days.


Photo found: Iams food ad. hilarious. and exactly how I feel today.

Top Pic: Most recent pic of me at Bff's Wedding, Jan 2010

Bottom Pic: Age 18

Another birthday has rolled around

The Big two three. Funny how as I get older I seem to get a little depressed. Sometiems I feel old, and that I've just wasted a lot of time.

I just remember when I was graduating highschool thinking that 23 was SO old. Thinking that I would have SO much accomplished by now. Done with school, working my dream job, married, maybe a child, maybe a retuned missionary?

It's interesting. You know how when people ask you "where do you see yourself in 5 years"... You have this plan in your head how everything is going to work out. It just makes sense to you...

No, I haven't finished school. Yet.
No, I'm not working at my dream job. Yet.
No, I'm not married and don't have my own family. Yet.
No, I didn't serve a mission. Yet?

My life, though, has worked out for the better. My Heavenly Father has a plan for me specifically. It's amazing to me. I think about where my life has gone and which paths I've taken. I HAD to take those paths to learn about myself, and to learn more about the gospel. Does that make any sense? I feel like I'm rambling a little bit.

I have accomplished so much though. No, not what I planned five years ago.. But exactly what I have needed to live to be where I'm at and be who I am today.

Now that it's been 5 years, maybe I'll set new goals for the next 5 years?

Where do I see myself in 5?

Finished with school?
Getting another degree?

I don't know exactly where I'll be. But I do find comfort knowing that if I'm trying my best I will be in the right place. Even if it's not in my plan, it's in His plan. I can't see the whole perspective. I've gotta keep that in mind.

So, Happy Birthday, Self.

Here's to another year of learning and growing and living and loving.
