Watch Me!

Watch Me

I never wear watches, even though I own two good ones. But that doesn't mean I don't love them! I wish I wore one everyday but I always feel like they make my arm look really fat, so I stay away.
I'm drooling over these watches here. Marc shows up 3 times! He is good. Love him.

I'm home! Hopefully. I wrote this post a couple days before so I'm assuming I'll make it home by now.

Humidity, I'M COMING!

The Only Colors The World Really Needs

The Only Colors The World Really Needs

I love these colors so much! I would just have a closet full of these colors! They are so attractive, calming, and earthy to me.
And all the tops are modest-friendly! Doesn't get better!
Now I only need to learn how to sew, then I would copy some of these cuties!

I had my last final today and I'm going home!!!!! Life is good. The summer will be great. Now I need to make a list of things to do :)

Favorite Forever Finds

I'm definitely feeling prints right not. My tastes seem to switch between pale colors and then prints. Pretty drastic. Here's some cuties at Forever 21

1, 2, 3, 4

i'd sooo rather be shopping.....

Movie Trailers Anyone?

Here are some movies I want to see

Taylor Lautner? Yes, yes please, pretty please!

Johnny Depp? YES PLEASE!

Indulge myself in a little Disney highschool drama? Why not! It's sure to have some laughs!

A period piece of a love triangle? In FRENCH? It's pretty much what I would live off of.

I read this book a long time ago and it is so good! I definitely recommend it! But the book is just based in history, though the movie adds the element of melding history and modern day together. I don't know about this, but I will definitely see it.

I want to see so many movies, I have a list somewhere, but these are what I could remember off the top of my head. I'll post more later.

Sooo Cute

I'm loving this video I saw The Anti-Austen share today. It's a facebook chat between a boy and a girl. The girl is typing on the left side and the boy is typing on the right side.

Isn't this great? It's so true! And terribly sad! But I think the music is darling

It's finals week and finals really suck the soul out of a person!
I was blog hopping yesterday, so I can't remember where I read this, but I read something so true about finals week. Something along the lines of:
~Haven't showered for a while? Ehh, it's okay, it's finals week!
~Wear random items in your closet that end up making you look like you are a bum/got dressed in the dark? Ehh, it's okay, it's finals week!
~In my case I wore the same outfit two days in a row, and I don't think I'd mind wearing it again tom. Ehh, it's okay, it's finals week!
~Got 2 Hours of sleep last night? Ehh, it's okay, it's finals week!
~Had a coke and cookies & cream icecream for breakfast, bought on campus at 8:20am? Ehh, it's okay, it's finals week!

So basically, anything goes! Because
It's okay, it's finals week!

Garden Party

Garden Party

Today is beautiful day in Provo! I might just be saying that because I was up way early for a final, and I'm sleep deprived, so I'm delirious. But I think it really is gorgeous! Now all I need is some lush overgrown Rococo gardens to stroll around in.

Would You Believe...

That this is paper?????

Oh Martha, can you do no wrong? ;)
I'm in love with all these paper flowers! The website gives you the instructions on how to do these beauties.
I was quite the origami geek back in the day, so my heart still flutters when it sees a beautiful piece of paper coaxed into a difficult and intricate shape.
Here's some of my favorites

In other news, it's finals week, so life sucks. But only temporarily! Do you remember when I said I should watch a southern movie everyday until I go home? Well the movie hasn't really happened but thurs I watched the show Swamp People where they hunt gators. I really felt this sufficed my southern need because these people are as southern as you can get! And today I made a playlist of songs about Georgia, so there's my southern kick for the day.

I burned my hand today making chicken. It sucks. It hurts.

I've been looking for a place to live for next school year and I thought I had finally found a place and it didn't really seem in-demand because it had been listed for a while and no one had taken it, so I decided to spend the night thinking it over, so today I email the owner and she tells me she had a huge increase in interest for the house today and now all the contracts are gone! Sucks.

So now I have a week to find a place before I go home. s u c k s.

And today was a relatively good day until about the last 5th of the day. I was sad. Sad all over, about everything. My feelings were exploding, but not in great fireworks, they were exploding in drooling little globs of sadness.

But on a better note, the moon was gorgeous tonight in Provo, especially with the thin clouds surrounding it.

Cute Dogs!

Gotta love dogs! And Martha has some cute pictures of them right now

Dang! I wish I felt like how the the last dog looks! One more week and I will be home! The glorious, glorious south is calling my name! I should watch one southern movie a day for a week until I leave to go back home. Of course with finals here, that might be a bad idea.....but I think sometimes that the best idea is the bad one!

Bridesmaid Ideas

So I was browsing Martha Stewart's website and let's admit it, the woman is pretty amazing! There's lots of cute ideas on her website.

I was checking out the wedding section because I'm delirious because I didn't get a lot of sleep last night and found this cute idea for bridesmaid dresses that I really like!

The idea of every maid wearing the same dress kind of rubs me the wrong way because we all have different body shapes that don't often look good in the same dress. So I thought well I guess I would be okay if each girl wore a different dress but it might be reallly weird!
And then I saw this and Martha wiped away all my fears!
I love the different styles and the color palatte. This would be for a wedding where the color palatte is copper, silver, and gold. (Which is a wedding I would love to attend but I can guarantee you it will never be my color palatte)
I don't know how I feel about 4 short dresses and 1 long one, I'd probably keep them all short or at least have 2 long ones.

But all in all I think it's a great idea and I like how this was put together. It really lets your girls get creative (within boundaries) and they can spend as much as they want and they can feel comfortable with what they pick! And the best part is they might not even have to shorten it to wear it again.
That is definitely so true.

name that movie???

Classy Flirt

Classy Flirt

This outfit is very classy with its wide leg pants and tailored jacket but it's also slightly flirty with the pale polka dots, the sweet bow bobby pins, and the bright heels.
I'm loving it. There are just some days when you wanna dress in some classy basics but still look cute and current.

I don't have much to say because I'm writing this llaaatteee on Sunday night, so I'm tired. But I'll leave you with a tune to get your Monday groove on :)

My post started out classy and ended a little hussy ;)

Random Ramblings

I can go ahead and tell you that over the summer I will have about 3 friends around town and I won't be living with any of them (like I do now with my roommates) and I'm gonna get a little lonely without having females my age at my disposal a mere 4 feet down the hall. So my blog will definitely be more of an outlet for my thoughts and crap.

Yesterday I bought a new pair of shoes from Payless. They are waaayy comfortable and really cute on a foot.
Of course Utah has the most bizarre weather and it snowed today so who really knows when I'll be able to wear these. Probably not till I get home to Georgia.

I also went to Forever 21 and tried on those cute slouchy heels I blogged about a little while ago. Well the store only had them in black, I wanted brown. But I tried them on in my regular size 8, and they were too tight, so I think I'd need an 8 and 1/2 but I couldn't find one, so I'll never know if those shoes were meant to be.

Deadliest Catch comes on next week on Tuesday!!! My sister got me started on watching this show a long time ago. I pretend I could care less about it, but I actually enjoy it.

I'm going home in TWO weeks! I could not be more thrilled! I love Georgia. It's so beautiful and green and lush! My skin is never dry. My family and puppies are there! It's home. Where people are friendly and kind and towns are quaint.
I just have to focus on finding a job for the summer : / That's the one thing that's getting me down. Job finding is so fierce these days. And my problem is, I don't want to work with food. I don't think it's because I'm stuck up or anything, I think I would learn a lot of great lessons from being a waitress, but for some reason I have a really bad feeling about working with food. So I don't really want to travel down that road. So there goes about half of my job opportunities.

Hm, well we'll see what I eventually end up with.
I went to Divine Comedy today. It was pretty funny. Here's one of their older skits that I think is funny and sometimes so true!

Have a rocking weekend!

Yes or No?

New signature, yes or no?
I thought it'd be nice because I forget most of the time to sign my post, and if I don't sign my post then I feel a little rude. I think because I feel like this is a letter from me to you, so a letter should always be signed right?
You tell me.

My Dream Ring

I love jewelry so very much. My mom and I got hooked on watching GemsTV, does anyone remember them? So I've spent a lot of time looking at jewelry and wondering what kind of wedding ring I'd like one day. And to be honest, I never found one that I absolutely loved, some were just okay, or pretty. But nothing to die for.

Well that was until I saw this little beauty. I would like to introduce you to the Chanel Ruban 1932 ring.

It is perfection. I would give nearly anything to own this darling little jewel. (I'm pretty sure I'd give my first child away) Well first off, it has my favorite gem stone cut - the cushion cut. The cushion cut is so gorgeous and antique looking. And then the ring has these amazing folds of "ribbon" covered in diamonds on either side of the main stone. And lastly... IT"S CHANEL, need I say more?????

It's like this incredible little package, wrapped in ribbons. It is my dream.
It's too bad my dream costs about a quarter of a million dollars. But that shouldn't be to hard to afford...right?

Anyone know a rich single man I might marry?

Prepare to Swoon

Okay my parents recently bought a CD/DVD that has David Foster and a lot of people he has worked with like Micheal Buble, Katherine McPhee, Celine Dion, Barbara Streisand, etc... It's one big concert where they all come together and sing different songs. My parents love it so much they play it every day. EVERY day.

This is one of my favorite songs on the DVD because Blake Shelton is soooooo dang hot! Every single time I watch this video I think I might explode because of his attractiveness. I don't know what does it.

Start at the beginning if you're bored, 1:00 for a nice intro, or 1:15 to get to Blake.
Oh and Micheal is on the left, Blake on the right.

Swoon! From about 1:15 to 1:30 I have a hard time breathing.
After you watch it a couple times you really begin to appreciate how attractive he is. Move aside Miranda Lambert because I LOVE him!

P.S. Extreme Couponing comes on tonight! And Modern Family and Off the Map! Great night.

I really love this outfit. It's cheery and flowery and casual. I think if I could, I would wear this outfit everyday. And that's saying a lot. I don't know, something about it just makes me happy.

I think the shirt is gorgeous. I just love the pattern. And my favorite part is probably the bag. Marc by Marc. Those bags speak to my soul. I really don't know why.

So have a great day my friends! I wish spring would come sooner.

Dear Friend,

One day you told me that you knew who I was going to marry.
And I was like "whaaaa???"
And you were like "It's ____ ____."
And I was like "Ha! Why do you think that?"
And you were like "I've seen the way you look at him"
And I was like "Well you must be blind!" Okay I didn't really say that

I still don't know what you think you've seen, you're crazay!
But thanks to you, I now have frequent dreams about the guy in question.
I'm not saying every night, but at least one every two weeks or so. Which is WWWAAAYYY more than I want!!!!!

I mean I've had dreams about meeting up in the mall, or at school, or even in a wedding dress!
One of the most disturbing dreams is as follows:
I was waiting in a train station (I don't know why, this dream was obviously set in an older time period) So I was waiting in a train station with my SON who had to be 8 or so, waiting for his father.... MY HUSBAND to arrive. I didn't know who he was but I knew I was waiting for him. I was so excited and dare I say longing for his arrival. And suddenly ____ ____ comes walking around the corner and my face lights up, and I'm so happy because HE'S MY HUSBAND. And one half of me is thinking "WHAT? No, no, no, no, this can't be" While the other half of me thinks "Yay! I'm so excited he's back!"


I really hope you're are happy little miss. You've officially tainted my dreams with your nonsense.

But I still love you,

P.S. You know who you are, and if you dare say his name here you will not live to see the summer's sun!

Monday Monday

I haven't really posted in a few days because I've been hooked on watching Army Wives on Netflix. That show really keeps you on the edge of your seat!

Every single time without a doubt when I read the word "Monday" this song plays in my head

Last week Ashley from I Believe in Unicorns posted this adorable video of a little girl in ballet class. I've watched it so many times. She is sooooo cute!

So ever since I was about 7 (I'm totally not kidding or exaggerating) I have been waiting for Neosporin to make something for lips. Well they finally came out with something a little while ago. They have a Daily Hydration Therapy and an Overnight Renewal Therapy. Well my lips have been soooo dry in this horrible Utah climate. I must complain about them everyday all day. Sometimes I even get little snarky answers like "Well it sounds like your lips need to get some action". Ha ha ha, aren't you guys just cute (raised eyebrow/menacing look). So over the weekend I was at Target and I saw the new Neosporin lips treatments and I bought the Overnight one. I really like its consistency and it doesn't look half bad on the lips. But I'll have to wait a little longer to see if it is really doing any good.

And lastly, I have a lot to share, since I was at Target I checked out their shoes and DANG! They have got some cute shoes right now I think. My favorite shoe from Target:

The first shoe is from Target and the second shoe is from Forever 21. I think I like the version from Forever 21 more. The color is nicer and overall the shoe just looks more balanced. I tried on the one a Target and I thought I might fall over, with the way that heel tapers. It just felt a bit strange.

And I guess that's it for right now.
Have a great day and GOOOOOOO CATS!

I couldn't resist
