I'm moving...

I've been turned onto the love of wordpress.
Mostly because I've always found Blogger a little irritating.

It's Friday, Friday, Gotta Get Down on Friday!

Another edition of Friday's Letters

Dear Vacation, you are FINALLY HERE.  I love you. 

Dear airplane outfit, I love your comfort and casual stylish appearance, but it is too hot in this airport.

Dear hair, please don't turn into a lion's mane while I'm on vacay.  I kinda want to look cute.

Dear cute boys who make me smile, thanks.  

Dear airplane, please don't be full.  I kind want some space.  

Dear legs, this lack of running while on vacation is not a permanent thing.  We will be picking up where we left off when we return.

Dear bus that almost hit me yesterday, thanks for not killing me.  I have a lot of things to look forward to.  

Dear beach, you and I will be BFFs for the next week.

Happy Friday.

I probably won't be posting, but I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Manic Monday

Today was super busy and super slow, so enjoy the weekend update.

Blog Hopping for "Weekend Update"

As always, my weekend was pretty relaxed and low key.

I spent Friday night beginning this movie:

I love Ryan Gosling.
I'd take him ANY DAY over ANYONE.

But I fell asleep.  


I ran 6 miles, not consecutively, but I ran it.
I lifted, heavy, for my back.  

Then I did some shopping.
I finally found shorts that I like.

Yes, I am in a TJ Maxx dressing room trying on my Old Navy shorts that I had bought the day before.  And please ignore my weird face, apparently I make weird faces all the time.

These actually fit me pretty well.  I just wish they would have had the green pair in my size.  They were all only $6.99, what a steal!

I also started packing for my vacation.
I like to make lists for packing, although I don't ALWAYS follow them.
They tend to look like this:

This is an old list, but you get the idea.
 Color coding is always more helpful.

And these are my suitcases (although these pictures are also old, sorry, my camera battery is dead).

I'm mostly done packing, I just have some laundry that I need to finish.
Its nice to pack bathing suits and dresses and sandals.
It is much more fun than winter clothes.

Uplifting Sunday

In case you need some uplifting words of encouragement, check out these videos and this website.  
They are amazing.


It is so important to live in this world, but not of it.
To be less selfish and self-centered, and more God centered.
To not only know it, but to live it.
It is more than going to church, but to live what you're taught.
To pray about everything, no matter what.
In happy times and in sad times.
When you want something and when you NEED something.

"Not to us, but to Your name be the glory." - C. Tomlin

And it is okay if you haven't done that, you can make the change.
It is okay if you slip and you fall, it is a rocky road, and if it wasn't, Jesus would have never come to die for OUR sins.

"The cross before me, the world behind me." - C. Tomlin

Be inspired, and remember who comes FIRST.  

One Week

I've had this song stuck in my head, because in one week, it will be me:

I can't wait to lay on the beach, read, and do nothing.  
I've been creating my perfect, beach summer playlist.  
Right now it includes these songs:
"Toes" - Zac Brown Band
"Pontoon" - Little Big Town
"Bubble Toes" - Jack Johnson
"Drink in My Hand" - Eric Church
"Springsteen" - Eric Church
"Beer in Mexico" - Kenny Chesney
"A Buncha Girls - Frankie Ballard
"One More Drinkin' Song" - Jerrod Niemman
"Drunk On You" - Luke Bryan
"Country Girl (Shake It For Me)" - Luke Bryan
"Five O'Clock Somewhere" - Alan Jackson
"Summer Nights" - Rascal Flatts
"5-1-5-0" - Dierks Bentley
"My Kinda Party" - Jason Aldean
"Water" - Brad Paisley
"Fast Cars and Freedom" - Rascal Flatts
"Two Pina Coladas" - Garth Brooks
"Something Like That" - Tim McGraw
"That Song in My Head" - Julianne Hough

So, there's a serious theme going on here...  

Moving on.  

This post is kind of all over the place.
I'm pretty obsessed with Katy Perry.
I've posted about her before here.
Anyway, part of me wants to go see her movie, but I'm kind of embarrassed.  

I mean, she's so fun and adorable, right?

And finally, I might go back and get this dress, if I can find something to wear under it because in person you can see my undergarments, and that's not the kinda girl I am.  

I know its kinda plain, but I think it is really comfortable.  
And I don't wear a lot of yellow, so it is kind of different for me.  

Happy Sunday!!

Friday's Letters

Dear Vacation:  Couldn't I be leaving today?

Dear Cute Bathing Suits:  Please be on the racks in my size this weekend.  I'm tired of find THE ONE and it being too small or too big.  

Dear San Diego Weather:  It is July, did you not know that?  No more of this June Gloom and May Gray.  Please and thank you.  

Dear Bachelorette:  Emily, you make me want to throw up.  I mean, I think you're cute, and all, but something about you drives me crazy.  And get it together, Arrie is a creep, Jef is a baby, and Sean is where it's at.  Enough said.  

Dear Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream:  I was craving you for weeks and thought I could go without, but I couldn't.  So I caved and now you're all I think about.  The worst part is, you're not even my favorite! 

Dear Life:  Let's kick it in to high gear.  I want to have some fun and smile more.  I mean, I smile a lot, but I want more reasons to smile.  

Dear Country music:  Thank you for getting me through each and every day.  You make my head and my heart smile.  I really need to go line dancing or something, because I really keep thinking about it.  


Enjoy your weekend!

Happy 4th of July!

I love 4th of July, it is one of my favorite holidays.

I don't really know why exactly, but I do really love it.
I think because it SCREAMS summer.
I ALWAYS wear red, white, and blue.
I support our country to the core.

And this is the only song you need to listen to today.
Repeat, I tell you, repeat.

I apologize for the poor picture quality, I tried to fancy it up to make up for it.
Aviators are a must on the 4th of July.
Red sweater, check. White cami, check. Blue shirt, check.
Grey shorts and cute sandals, check, check.

Have fun, be safe, enjoy a few beers, burgers, and some fireworks.

Time To Get a Gun

Dear Past, Present, and Future Boys who will:
Break my heart, piss me off, make me angry, and/or make me cry,

First, my best friend will beat you up.  
I know you think I might be kidding, but I am serious.  
She will, don't mess with her.  
She's crazy.  

Second, my famous best friend, Ms. Lambert, has taught me some fighting words.
And if I were to throw punches, or throw some 'bows, it would be to these words
(Or if I ever take up shooting like I've thought about):

"I'm goin' home gonna load my shotgun
Wait by the door and light a cigarette.
If he wants a fight, well now he's got one."

"I'm gonna show 'em what little girls are made of:
Gunpowder and lead."

"I'm giving up on love, 'cause loves given up on me."

"Go and fix your make up girl, it's just a break up
Run and hide your crazy, and start actin' like a lady.
'Cause I raised you better, gotta keep it together
Even when you fall apart
This ain't my mama's broken heart."

"Powder your nose, paint your toes
Line your lips and keep 'em closed
Cross your legs, dot your I's
And never let 'em see you cry."

"'Cause all the good ones got wedding rings and the young ones are just too dumb."

"If it ain't obvious what has set me off today
Behind every woman scorned, is a man who made her that way."

"I can't carry it on.  I've got a lot of troubles of my own."

Third, why would you even want to upset this cute little face:

Yes, that's me.  
When you try to upset me or piss me off, picture her.  

Love always,

Weekend Update

What an embarrassment to the blogging world and myself.  
I didn't really do much of anything this weekend.  

Friday Night:
I watched this (in 10 min increments on youtube).  I laughed hysterically the ENTIRE time.  I forgot how funny this MTV movie was and wish it was on DVD.  

I went to the gym, as always.
Ran errands and while I did laundry, I spent my time here:

It was really hot and I'm glad that I was the only one out there.
It makes it that much more enjoyable.  
And no sunburn, but not tan either.

I also watched this: 

Not as good as the original, BUT much more manageable than some remakes.  
I like the guy that plays Ren, I'm not a fan of Julianne Hough though.  
Oh well, you win some, you lose some. 

Church, like always.
I have really needed it these past few weeks.  
Thank you, Jesus.  

I almost bought a super cute bathing suit today, and I deleted the photo, but I passed.  
After the dinner I had tonight, red velvet pancakes (YUM), I'm glad I passed.

Next weekend I'm getting my hair cut, that should be more exciting.
(Actually, a trim, and cutting my bangs doesn't really count, but that doesn't matter).
I'm thinking of this:


It is kinda like what I already have, just more centered and less side swepty.
I'm trying to spice things up, just a little.  

Have a great holiday week!
I love 4th of July!!!
