superficial much?

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Wow.  Last two posts were about something I wanted changed about myself.  Please don't think I'm superficial.  I'm not getting a nose job and I love my short hair!  Sheesh.  I am not one of those girls who thinks I need to be changed!  Take Heidi Montag for instance.  She was gorgeous before and look what she did!

Still pretty. But still. 

I think I made a post about this already.  Find it { here }

Don't get me wrong.  I love my nose.  I would never ever ever even consider plastic surgery to get it "fixed". 

but if I did...

I just am really self conscious about my bump on my nose.. Hmm. Oh well, I never have to look at my profile so why should I care!

Hair Extensions.

Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Many of you know.  I love to change my mind.  All the time.  I wanted to grow my hair out, the next minute I wanted to chop it.  Shorter. And shorter.  Then I wanted long hair again.  My hair grows much too slowly...

My hair yesterday.
So I discovered the beauty of clip-in hair extensions.  You'll have to let me know what you think.  I refuse to wear them in public.  I'm much too embarrassed.. But for the blog?  Sure, I'll let the public see them!  :)
extensions. My hair today!

Sometimes, are you like... really right now?

I tend to get wild hairs and crazy ideas now and again when I'm in a rut.

I'm like my dad that way.

After I do the same thing over and over for awhile I tend to get bored/have a meltdown/ So then I say I'm going to go and do something..

Most recently it's been to:

move to California


visit/move to Paris.

Yeah. Wild hairs.

Honestly, though. I really WANT to do those things, but let's be practical here. I've only got 2 (maybe 3) semesters left until i'm DONE with my AAS in Fashion. THEN I can move away to a bigger "more exciting" city and do what I love for a bit and THEN finish my BFA. I've got to take things one step at a time. I will work REALLY hard to keep up my straight A's and save all my pennies so that when next May comes, I really CAN do what I want instead of just talking about it without really being practical. Sheesh, I wish I was done with school. Other than that, I don't have any extreme things holding me here. Well, except for my job/friends/family that i LOVE (not necessarily in that order..)

But hear you me.

I need to get away. As soon as I'm done with school.
I need to meet new friends. (not that I don't love the ones I've got)
I need to figure out life on my own

I need to do what I want.

Okay, that's all for now.

Hopefully I don't get any more wild hairs soon.

So. New layout. It was just time for a change, you know? 1. Let me know what you think. 2. It will most likely be changing again. (Blog title, background colors, fonts, etc.... So don't be alarmed. )

I love me some Motown

But this is sad.

mostly borderline dramatic.

I secretly love it.

(you need to check out the original, by Ms Etta James. Aggh. I love it all.)

New Found Love

Who knew?

I mean... I always knew I loved flowers.

But look at these puppies


Suz taught me everything I know. She's truly amazing. Love her!

And you thought they were just for the 90's....

I'm talking Boy Bands here, Folks.

That's right.

When I say Boy Bands, you automatically think

Backstreet Boys or N*SYNC, right?

I did, too.

Until I was thinking about it one day (Yeah, I really do think about things like this). There have been so many boy bands who have made my life just a little bit more complete.

To name a few:

The Beatles.

The Monkees

Jackson 5

New Kids On the Block

Backstreet Boys


The Jonas Brothers

Yeah, more boy bands than you thought! Don't you love it? Who are your favorites? I recently went to the BSB concert, they will always have a special place in my heart.

My mom was in love with Davy Jones from the Monkees growing up... And who wouldn't, look how dreamy he is!!!

What new boy band will ten more years bring? Can't wait! The bar has been raised pretty high!

I had a little too much extra time on my hands today...

Which isn't always a bad thing, necessarily...



I was "in the mood" to shop. But wasn't so "in the mood" to leave my comfy couch with rice krispies in tow watching Boy Meets World.
So of course, the I remembered the geniosity of online shopping...
And bought these beauties:

How fun are these keds? Not only fun, but practical. Cream/Burgundy Spectator Sneaks. I am STOKED to wear them with charcoal grey walking shorts. Or maybe cuffed up dark jeans. Or even a skirt. Oh, the possibilities. Thank you Real Simple for introducing us.

I also bought her. Beautiful Catmint dress from Anthropologie. I splurged, okay!? ...I deserved it. Right?.. I've got a friend's wedding coming up.. and NEEDED this dress.

Don't judge me.

It's gorgeous. Can't wait for her to come. Can't wait to wear it with a red belt, cream cardi and red heels. Mmm. Or if I don't want to be so patriotic, A gold skinny belt, Orange heels and cream cardi. Anything, really. Can't go wrong with Anthropologie, my friends. Can't go wrong.

These Dreams...

Friday, July 9, 2010

I've got THE WEIRDEST dreams, I'm telling you..

The other night I had a dream that this REALLY attractive boy leaned in to kiss me... he was a mix between Ryan Reynolds and John Stamos... And I went in to kiss him back and he:

screamed like a girl
turned this awful green color
then exploded.


Then the next night, had a dream that I was in church.. The Carpenters were sitting in front of me, then after church Richard Carpenter turned around and asked me to go on tour with them because "I sounded exactly like Karen"... It was awesome.

Best part of it was when I woke up I legitimately thought it was real. I was SO baffled that it was a dream!

Totally weird.

Karen Carpenter was right

It was completely the right thing to do. Still doesn't make it any easier, though.

One of the greatest blessings I have recieved from this is realizing how many people truly care about me and how I'm doing.

I've had countless people praying for me, texting/calling me, dropping everything to distract me and just to see how I'm doing. I have the greatest friends in the entire world. Angels are sent to us in our times of need. Heavenly angels, but mostly earthly angels. I can't even name all the earthly angels who've helped me out so much in the last few weeks alone, but one in particular stands out.

She learned of the breakup weeks after it happened, and the next day was at my house with chocolate and a sweet note to me. It was exactly what I needed. It was a reminder that God really is over all. He knows what is best for me and has someone amazing planned for me.

I love this:

Everyone longs to give themselves completely to someone; to have a deep, full relationshop with another; to be loved thoroughly and exclusively. But God says, "No. Not until you are satisfied, fulfilled and content with being loved by me alone; with giving yourself totally and unreservedly to me; to have an intensely personal and unique relationship with me alone. I love you, my child. Until you discover that only in me is your satisfaction to be found, you will not be capable of the perfect human relationship that I have planned for you. You will never be united with another until you are united with me; exclusive of anyone or anything else; exclusive of any other desires or longings. I want you to stop planning and stop wishing. Allow me to bring that person to you. You just keep watching me, expecting the greatest things. Keep listening and learning the things I tell you. You just wait; that's all.

Don't be anxious, don't worry, don't look around at the things others have or what I've given them. Don't look at the things you think you want. You just keep looking up to me,k for you will miss what I want to show you. When you are ready, I'll surprise you with a love more wonderful than you would have ever dreamed of. You see, until you are ready and until the one I have for you is ready--I am working even this minute to have you both ready at the same time--until you are both satisfied, exclusively with me and the life I have prepared for you, you will not be able to experience the love that exemplifies your relationship with me. This is perfect love.

And dear one, I want you to have this wonderful love. I want you to see in the flesh a picture of your relationship with me, and enjoy materially and concretely, the everlasting union of beauty, perfection, and love that I offer you with myself.

Please know that I love you utterly. Believe it and be satisfied!

It is hard to stumble.. on your knees.

So, here I am. Saying goodbye to love for a time, looking forward with faith that my Heavenly Father really does have something and someone wonderful in store for me. Hard, yes. Worth it? Absolutely. I can't wait to see what the future holds for me.

In the meantime, I'm planning myself a journey to Europe.

What to do on a Saturday night on the roof?

Sing The Sound Of Music, of course!!

We had a ball, as you can see. And the neighbors didn't even complain!

What a great treasure this is.

last week I could have died

1. I played with guns. For the first time. It was actually very empowering.

2. I went digging(in a jeep) for the first time. It was terrifying. My dear friend Landon claims it was "under control"... But we almost tipped over about 28 times.

3. There was a frightening man-eating alien albino spider-scorpion-ant thing.. It could have eaten us all. I'm not joking, look at this.

4. We were driving home, and merging onto the freeway. A semi truck almost ran us off the road. We had to do an emergency pull-over between construction cones. And somehow my heart didn't even skip a beat. I was completely calm! Amazing.
