Too many kids...

Last weekend was filled with birthdays! We celebrated my cousins Isaac and Ethan's on Friday night. They are "way too cool" for an actual birthday party so we had cake and ice cream while they opened their gifts. The invited all of their friends over so there were, like, 14 6th grade boys running around. One fell and scraped his knee pretty badly and another puked everywhere while all the others played Halo. That's a pretty good party I'd say.

Then Saturday evening we celebrated my cousin Luke's 3 rd birthday. OMG. There were so many people in that house, it was insane. Kids EVERYWHERE.

It was a Transformer themed party and as you can tell, I could NOT get him to stand still long enough for a picture. With all those toys and balloons? Yeah, it was impossible. Oh and all of the sugar didn't help either. The party was supposed to be outside, but it was basically a monsoon so it was crammed inside until the rain stopped. That's when they head for a giant mud puddle:

Best birthday ever? Pretty close :D

Horror Flick Friday

This week's horror flick is:

There are 5 main reasons to watch this:

  1. Spiderman 1,2 &3 aside, Sam Raimi is fantastic!!
  2. Majorly gross special effects scenes ...
  3. Alison Lohman is adorbs!
  4. It has some pretty good plot twists ....
  5. At one point there is a demon goat.

Christine (Lohman) is a loan officer who had to make the tough decision to not give a crazy old babushka an extension on her loan. After being denied she gets on her knees and begs Christine, in which she still denies. Humiliated, crazy old babushka lady rips a button off of her coat, mutters nonsensical gibberish and is escorted out of the bank.

'eh shull curz vew!!!!!!

The rest of the flick is filled with cursed Christine seeing some of the craziest, grossest things imaginable all the while trying to get help to rid herself of the curse.

It was shown in 3D so there are a few super lameo moments that were solely placed for the cheesy effect. It has classic Raimi moments, and if you've ever seen the Evil Dead series (If not, BUY IT NOW!!!) you'll know what I'm talking about. Dancing demons and demon goats? Fantastic.

 Also, just thought this was kind of funny:


30 Day Challenge #11

Put your iPod on shuffle and write the first 10 songs that pop up:

So I skipped #10. I have a few photos to scan for that one so I'll post it later. I had a first generation video iPod and I loved it so so much. I bought it on my 19th birthday and it died last summer. It lasted 4 years. It is completely dead, yet I can't get rid of it. I had kept the original box so I just put it back in there. It's birth place and final resting place all in one. So sad. I got an iPhone 3GS a little over a year ago and I've just been using that.

So here are my 10 songs:

  1. Reach Out  by Stretch Arm Strong
  2. Play the Game by Queen
  3. Turn On Me by The Shins
  4. Dear Live Journal by Evergreen Terrace
  5. Mysteries by The Yeah Yeah Yeahs
  6. Good Vibrations by The Beach Boys
  7. Don't Let Me Down by No Doubt
  8. War Child by The Cranberries
  9. Bootylicious by Destiny's Child
  10. Pioneers by Bloc Party

I wonder what this is supposed to say about me...? I guess that I have an odd taste in music. I like everything. I really do. I go through phases as well, where I will spend a month listening to the same CD over and over. Lately it's been The Distillers. They are just so good AND crazy. So you there you have it :D

Declaring Braless Wednesdays!

I know, I know. We can't go braless every Wednesday, but wouldn't it be nice? I woke up this morning with a stomach bug and tried to do the lady-like thing and wear a little make-up and put some decent clothes on. Then I though, "why?" I'm sick and I'm still trying to do what "you're supposed to do." I was raised that way and now I just don't wanna. Then I got to thinking about all of these "rules" that women are supposed to follow. Ugh, why? Wearing nice clothes and make-up should never be a chore, they should be fun! Let's keep this in mind and enjoy a day here and there just being our beautiful selves. 

Oh& gravity can suck it.

30 Day Challenge #9

How do you hope your future will be like:

Hm, my future. Well I have way too many things to say about my hope for the future so I'll just stick to the next 5 years. This summer the hubs and I will be moving back to GA, so I'm hoping to find a comfortable apartment close to potential jobs and close to future schools. During the first 9 months we won't be able to start school, because we don't count as in state until we file taxes. The plan is to work as much as we can and save for school. We also want to pay off the small debt we have. By the next NEXT fall semester I hope to be in school and finally work my way to graduating. FINALLY. Once down there I hope to find a job that I really enjoy. Money has never been a big deal to me, but as long as I have enough to survive, I'm good. I've always wanted to be a make-up counter girl. I know that's not a "worthy" aspiration, but it's just one of those small things I've always wanted to do. I'm thinking Ulta or Sephora, maybe a counter in a department store. I'd love to have that job. I'd even love to work there while in school. I may eventually get a salon job, but I'd have to wait a few months while my license is transferred. I know for a fact that Chris and I will be a lot happier there, away from snow and loud redneck trucks. I look forward to making new friends and seeing my favourite bands perform. There are just so many things to look forward to!

Modcloth Love #2

This, to me, is the perfect outfit:


NEED this dress!

Isn't this adorable?

I love this entire outfit! I think I'll be adding these to my birthday list. I've really been into browns and yellows lately. I've always loved the color yellow, but long ago my Grandma told me to never wear it because it makes me look ill. It has taken me years to toss that comment out of my head and branch out. Now? I can't get enough. It's such a fun and happy colour! I mean, it is the colour of sunshine!!

30 Day Challenge #8

A moment you felt the most satisfied with your life: 

My wedding day. As soon as I said "I do." I know that it sounds cheesy and very chickish, but I can't even put into words how happy I became on this day. My heart starts pounding just thinking about it. I am so unbelievably lucky to have found someone as wonderful as he is. I truly believe that God has made a person for each of us, it's just up to us to recognize when we meet that person. My wedding day was one of the happiest, scariest, busiest, hungriest days of my life. The day was perfect. The weather was perfect. My dress was perfect. Chris was perfect. Only after dating Chris for 6 months, I knew that he was the love of my life. When he's stressed, I'm calm. When I'm stressed, he's calm. We have so many of the same interests and still have our own identities that compliment each other. I learn new things from him everyday as well as grow to love him even more everyday. I didn't even think that was possible. I did know that without a doubt, no matter what our future has in store for us, we will have a neverending love.

What to do on a Friday night ....

There is nothing to do in this tiny town. Seriously. On top of it being the most boring place ever, it has been raining for WEEKS. That means Chris and I can't take our 4 mile walks anymore. Those were the best. My legs felt amazing afterward, like I could kick through Jackie Chan. I worked today and ran errands. After going to the bank Chris and I decided to grab a pizza. Woohoo, that's how fun our Friday's are. I did manage to get a lot of organizing done. All that's left is the evil dreaded bathroom and the T.V. room needs to be de-cluttered. I did come to a startling realization:

I am a Converse junkie. Those blue ones you see were my wedding shoes. They actually say Bride on the back of them. They were my something bluuuuuuuue! So I have about 10 pairs. That's a problem.

My hubs gave me little presents:

Isn't he the sweetest?! Sorry about the glare of my phone cover on my Joker bobble case. He's so adorably crazy. He sits on my dresser and watches me apply my make-up. That's how boring it is in this town. I go crazy with boredom and talk to bobble heads. I'm insane. On that note, nighty night!!


30 Day Challenge #7

What is your zodiac sign and do you think it fits your personality?

"Taurus is determined and peaceful. Although you are not a leader, you will recognize someone with great leadership qualities and follow them. You try to remain the same as everyone else, and are resistant to change. People will enjoy you because you have a good sense of humor and are intelligent. You are a dependable friend who is not scared off by a challenge. You may believe so strongly in your values that you will sacrifice relationships to uphold them. Some Taureans need to be told that they did a good job after accomplishing a task before they feel that they have really accomplished anything. Your friends are people in the same social standing as you, and you rarely go outside of that standing. Although you are calm and generally against fighting, you will fight if someone is provoking you. Your temper tends to explode in violent bursts that are not always directed at the person they should be."

Well my husband can attest to my exploding temper. I don't usually get angry, but when I do ..... HULK SMASH! I have thrown a computer mouse, thrown a cell phone and kicked a box fan. Those were my "violent" moments. Chris is good to let me rant, so I can yell all that I'm feeling and he knows that it's not directed at him. I do have strong beliefs and I have given up relationships for them. It was always because it was a negative relationship and life is too short to spend it with those who drag you down. I have a lot of acquaintances and friends, but few very close friends. I prefer it that way. Contrary to what is said, I have found myself in several leadership positions. I like being in charge, but I am the kind of person who knows when to step down. I can see myself as a peaceful person. I do try and keep the peace, I'm not one for drama. That's where a lot of those negative relationships go kaput. I don't feel that I need approval to feel accomplished. Everyone likes a kind word and/or compliment, but I don't strive for them. I learned long ago to make yourself feel happy and accomplished and not to rely on others. You don't need others approval if you approve of yourself. I don't feel the need to be like everyone else. I am entirely myself and am not opposed to change. I guess I could say it mostly fits my personality.


Horror Flick Friday

This week's horror flick is:

The story centers around a social worker named Emily (Zellweger) who loves to help children in need. Overloaded at work, she is given just one more case ....Case 39 (Yay! The title is relevant!) She is set on helping Case 39, a shy, quiet girl named Lilly (Jodelle Ferland) who may not be so shy in the end and rather a demon from Hell.

The actress Jodelle Ferland, is truly fantastic. If you're a horror flick fan (or gamer) you might recognize her from Silent Hill, yet another creepy flick full of freaky twitches. Oh& for those of you who scan the flicks for hot guys before watching: Bradley Cooper is in the role of Doug, Satan girl's psychiatrist and he's cute? (If you're into woman eyes ....)

All in all I'd say you should definitely give it a watch. It does have quite a few jumpy moments as well as some pretty awesome wounds. It's not gory, so if you have a sensitive tum-tum, you can get through it. Maybe... you pansy .... 

Oh& is it just or does anyone else think that Zellweger could be an alien?
