B A N A N A S!!

Tracey from The Biggest Loser is nuts!

Mistakes that she made last night...
1 - She chose to have a guaranteed weight loss of 2lbs instead of working with her trainers for the week.  DUMB.  The trainers now despise her.  And she didn't okay it with her partner first.  Poor Coach.
2 - She chose to eat 4 cupcakes to win the "challenge" and pick which one from each team whose weight loss would count in the end of the episode.  Poor Coach again.
3 - She ticked off every single person on the show

Once again - poor Coach.  Sorry you got stuck with a cupcake eating beeotch for a partner.

Tracey - Quit Crying!  And a tip for you - nobody pulls for the mean person!

I volunteered for the Charleston Animal Society at the Pet Expo today.
Here are some of the animals we had there...

And then there are always the strange ones that never fail to show up for a pet event...

i'm sincerely sorry...

BUT...I have to admit that I love this song.  Sorry.  Seriously Sorry!

I've tried not to bop my head but it's like it all of a sudden has a mind of it's own.  Arrgghh.

their boots were made for walkin'

Seriously?  Why do they do this to me?

I need the middle ones.  Unfortunately, Anthropologie doesn't fit into my budget.  But a girl can dream...and drool.

Mr Rivers with his balloons from CeeCee (that would me) at his birthday party

My lovely orange mums...
And not just any mums I tell ya.  Not Walmart mums.  These came from my brother's nursery.  :)

Glimpse of what I did bedside table...

What my poor nails look like after painting!

My room.  LOVING it so far.  It feels so perfect and cozy.  Can't wait til I am done!

It's really next to impossible for me to take pictures without my cat in them.  She is always up in my grill!

Suryia and Roscoe - Best of Friends

Thinking about taking a day trip.  Don't you think I would fit right in?  I belong in this picture!

I am thinking about trading in my dog and cat for this sweet couple.
Hope you are having a lovely Tuesday and that this made you smile!

it's love

It's Official.
Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbons tied the knot this past weekend.

Just another reason for me to love her since Death Cab for Cutie is one of my favorite bands.
They are precious.

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today.  Not sure what's wrong with me b/c it's beautiful outside and it's still the weekend!  Anyhoo...I just saw this and was wondering, since it is Monday tomorrow...if you could just pick up and go anywhere today instead of heading into a normal work week, where would you go?

my saturday

Heading to volunteer at Charleston Animal Society and then off to see this little monster turn 2. 

Oh and the highlight of babysitting last night was this...

I never could figure out the dog's name b/c it was a double name.  I mean how southern is that?!  All I know is if I had this dog I would name it Puddin. 

Hope you have a great Saturday!
Go Tigers!

Congrats to Julia and John...I love you and am so excited for you!

That would be John back behind us...try to ignore the drunk expressions on our faces. This was after a very long day of tailgating.  :)

And the above. do I even explain this?  I can't.  You will just have to trust me on this was supposed to be a funny joke.  ha ha.  I can't believe I am posting this picture.  She is going to kill me!  The photographer told us to pose like playboy bunnies.  How did we do?

Have a great weekend my peeps!

fall resolutions

Just saw this post on Perfect Sentiment and had to do it myself.  
{found on We Heart It}
And just like her - this fall weather has gotten me motivated.
Here are my fall resolutions:
1 - walk the dog (poor bored dog)
2 - drink more water - no more diet coke
3 - learn to use my "new" camera (more on that later)
4 - cook more - stop living off of salads and lean cuisines!
5 - get to Columbia more often to visit with my family
Bring it on Fall!

THIS is going to be a good show...

And I am not only saying this b/c it's another vampire show.  I have to admit that I love love love the CW.  
Huge fan.  And yes, I know I should probably be embarrassed to tell you this but I'm not.  
Also - look at these two hotties.  Oh my....
Good stuff.  :)

paying it forward

Happy Friday My Peeps!

It feels like the perfect day today to Pay It Forward. I was one of the 3 lucky winners of Morgan's post back in August so now it's my turn.

Here are the details (with a few minor changes at the end) :

1) The first 3 bloggers to comment on this post will receive a handmade gift from me.
2) The winners must in turn post this on their blog and return the Pay It Forward love.
3) You have 365 days to then ship your handmade gift to your 3 winners. Any price range goes (so Morgan-feel free to make me a headboard like yours for my gift)

My minor changes -
* You must become a follower to win - you know who you are. Click Follow. :)
** I know there are several of you out there that follow my blog but are not yourselves "bloggers" and I want you to be able to win too. So 1 non-blogger out there will win a handmade gift as well.

I already have one thing in mind so if you like music comment - you won't be disappointed!

Wednesday, September 9, 2009


This is what I finally started to tackle tonight. And this is not all of it of course. How did I accumulate so much crap? And I am pretty good about taking stuff to Goodwill too. Geesh. Well, I'll do my best to get it situated and finally post some pics of my new space soon. It's going to be super cute. :)

Hope everyone had a happy hump day!

the good, the bad and the hilarious

Oh Cameron - always good. How adorable is she in this dress?

Tori - aka Donna Martin. What were you thinking? Obviously the BAD. Maybe she just needs to eat a cheeseburger or something to make it look better.

And the hilarious would be Ellen, as always. She seriously cracks me up.

I mean - look at that billboard with David Beckham. I love it.

And then I noticed this comment...really?

Tony is so funny and nice looking. I love him in the Walmart commercial. Ask him how I could get him to DJ at my backyard cookout like in that commercial? lol.

People are so strange. Do you go on websites like Ellen's and leave comments for them? You know you do, don't lie. ;)

sold out?

I've been looking at lots of gig posters lately and so many that I love are sold out. Just found this one that I never even knew existed - even though I was at the show. It was my birthday celebration! Sold out. Must find. {found here}
