CROSSPOST: When is a good time to say Goodbye?

(I just HAD to cross post from blog.teedaloo.com )

How often do you replace your makeup?

If you're anything like me, then you are probably a little embarrassed to answer this question. Am I right?

Supposedly, lipstick is supposed to be tossed after one year... after two years at the very most, but that is really pushing it. Mascara should be tossed after 3 to 4 months of use. Foundation goes bad after a period of time, but it really depends on what type of foundation it is. But come on... who really follows all of these rules?

Lipstick can run up to $20 (and up) per tube. BUT... how do we stick to only one tube? Personally, I like to buy a lot of cosmetics just to test it out and it takes awhile to find ones that I really love. Different occasions call for different lipsticks. A red tube may look perfect when paired with a sexy little black dress for a special night, but you can't really expect anyone to wear the color to the office Monday-Friday, can you? (No offense to those who do) If I buy a tube of lipstick for... lets say... $14 and I have worn it about 3 times all year, then no way in hell am I going to toss that little sucker. I want to get my money's worth!

A tube of mascara can easily run up to nearly $40 per tube (hence DiorShow... which I love). BUT... I also have other mascaras that I like to use... again, for different occasions. I am not going to toss my mascara that I've used about 5% of... I don't care if its past the three months mark, I am keeping it!

Maybe some of you might think that its gross or whatever, but thats fine... I'm not forcing you to use my cosmetics.

I like to get my money's worth on everything that I buy... and that includes makeup. Although I may not toss my beloved tubes after a few months, I know when its time to let it go. If I am on the verge of adding different types of liquids to any of my makeup to moisten it, I know its time to say goodbye.

After writing this post, I think I ALMOST came to my senses that I should give myself time lines as to when I am allowed to buy certain products. Maybe that will be my new project this upcoming week? (Go through all of my makeup and part ways with some)

So lets hear it... how long do you keep your makeup for? Are you guilty of saving the goodies longer than you should? What is the product that has been in your drawer the longest and WHY is it still there?

This should be interesting!

Growing Up Doesn't Mean Growing Old.

So much has changed.

If you would have known me 5 or 6 years ago, or just simply read some of my blogs or my postings in various online communities, you would probably agree that I am not someone you'd want to befriend. Thats fine... I don't blame you. Looking back, I don't think I would want to be my friend either.

Growing up, I was once upon a time the nice girl who people didn't think could ever get angry or upset. I think I just tried too hard to be nice to people and made people believe that I could never get angry. It was only a matter of time until I exploded. And by that, I mean that all my anger, frustration, and emotions that I bottled up inside just blew up in everybody's faces to a point where I was deemed the bad girl, the bully, the drama queen. Whatever title I was given, it was probably deserved. Do I regret it though? Eh... not really.

I was sick and tired of people walking all over me and taking advantage of my "kindness". So what did I start to do when I exploded? I spoke my mind and said how I felt. For that reason, I don't really have regrets. I was mean... really really mean. Actually, I was a bitch. BUT... only to those that I felt deserved it.

I wasn't one of those bullies that go around picking on nice guys for no reason. I had my reason... always always had my reasons. There were some things that I could have done in a nicer way and there were some things that I did that may have crossed a line or two, but I still don't regret it because the people involved and know the whole story would probably agree that it was deserved. Not trying to justify my actions... I'm just saying.

That was all in the past though. Now, I don't really care to spend any extra time on petty little issues. Some situations and people just don't deserve the extra time and attention. *shrugs*

I have learned to cut people out of my life if I need to. I still speak my mind, but only those who are worthy deserve a piece of my mind. Does that make sense?

I am a lot happier as a person not spending extra time looking into petty little dramas. I have learned to only be considerate of people who deserve it. I also learned to care about people that deserve the care. It should always be like this... I just don't know why it took me so long to realize it.

Things that happened in the past is just that... the past. I forgive. I forget. But rarely do I regret. I take it as a lesson learned. If people that I've had issues with in the past were to come to me to try to talk things out with me, I'd give them the time of day only because I would want them to let things go like I have. Life is too short to hold grudges. Our hearts are too small to let any hatred in.

Bottom line is... don't sweat the small stuff. There is a bigger world out there and many other things that we should be focusing on. Grow up.

My Health... I was in for some shockers!

Yesterday was a day for me to take care of a few health related issues that I should have been taken care of awhile back. I was in for some shockers... and they weren't exactly good news. You ready for this?

As a child and like many others, I was one of those kids that loved to eat sweets and candies of all sorts and my teeth's health was the least of my concerns. Long story short, I had many cavities, had root canals done, and many silver caps made themselves at home within my mouth. Thankfully they were all in my molars and were only seen when I throw my head back and laugh with my mouth wiiiiiiiiiide open (which happens often). The silver caps came off gradually... one came off stuck to a cherry Now & Later (the candy), another came off while I was eating an ice cream cone, and the other came off while eating peanut brittle. Go figure... more sweets! At the age of 25, I am left with still one silver cap. I hate it because most adults I know don't have them. Grrr! I think I'm going to have it removed... somehow, someway.

Anyway... I just hate my teeth. Oh... and I'm finally going to get my chipped front tooth fixed. FINALLY. Another dentist appointment for me in a week. How exciting. Thank goodness my new found dentist is awesome... thanks to Yelp! I love that thing!

Now onto my eyeballs... here we go!

After about 10 years of wearing glasses and contacts, I just found out that I have astigmatism! WTF! I always knew that something was wrong with my eyes and they got irritated so easily. My contacts dried faster than anyone else's that I knew. I always thought that my eyes were getting worse and worse because things always got more blurry than before (or so I thought) and for this reason, I had to wait until my eyes became stable before considering lasik surgery. So this means that the contacts that I have been prescribed before were not the right ones for me. No freakin' wonder! I now have to use special contacts for astigmatism which of course, costs more, but at least I know what the real problem is.

Well many Optometrists later, I finally found one who knew what he was doing and what he was talking about. Finally, one that actually cares and doesn't tell me things just to sucker me into buying and paying more for something that isn't what I really need. FINALLY! Again, thanks to Yelp!

We also found out that Sam has early signs of glaucoma which scares me because if we hadn't known this now, he could have lost sight wayyyyy earlier than he is supposed to. They took photographs of his eyeball and it was so interesting to see the nerves and all the junk in his eyes. At least I know that they're doing things that will actually help and prevent more problems in the future.

Our visit was pretty costly but worth every penny. It is so important to be on top of your health and figure things out before it is too late. It is better to prevent than to heal... thats for sure.

I urge every single one of you to do some research and find the right doctors who truly care and not just rush you out the door so that they can proceed to the next patient. It may cost a bit more for you, but trust that your health is priceless and anything to help it is worth every penny. You don't want to have any regrets in the future.

I'm going to go review my new favorite doctors on Yelp. Teedaloo!

OH... and I'm so looking forward to my new Gucci glasses. My friends can't make fun of my Grandma frames anymore. It was a tough choice between Prada, Versace, and Gucci... but I had to go with Gucci because I wanted something simple and it just fit the best. Maybe my backup pair will be the Prada's... it was a close call. Sooooo excited!

Hope everyone has a great weekend! :)

Wakin' up in Vegas!

Wow. After being home for nearly 12 hours, I sit here and continue to reminisce about this past weekend. I've been to Vegas many times, but this one has got to be one of the best ones because of the balance and the fact that I got to do a lot more than usual in about half the time that I usually spend there.

Before the trip, there were some issues where people made me feel like I wasn't going to enjoy my trip. Thank goodness it didn't affect it too much. In fact, despite the little bit of awkwardness I felt, I think something good came out of it. Its healthy to be honest about your feelings and speak your mind rather than have people play a guessing game. I know that I often joke that the world revolves around me but it makes me wonder if people really truly feel that the world revolves around them. Whatever it may be, I say screw with it and do what makes YOU happy. If people choose to moan and groan over situations rather than try to do something about it to change it, then there is nothing that I can do about that. Like I usually say, "sounds like a personal problem to me"!

Anyway... when it came down to the trip, I had such a blast! The "party train" tolerated my loud and annoying self, somehow. Big props to them for being able to do it and having such great sense of humor.

We stayed at the lovely Bellagio and we certainly had a front row center view of the water fountain that gives a remarkable water show every 30 minutes. Breathtaking and beautiful... I loved it!

Our first night there was short because we got in so late, but we made the best of it at the timeshare that our friends were at. SOOOOO much fun! We didn't get back to our room until about 4am and all of us knocked out pretty quickly. Woke up early the next morning and had really good dim sum that seemed to give a few diarrhea, but it didn't really affect me. In fact, I wanted more! Yummm! Went shopping and my sweet Husband insisted I pick out a purse from Michael Kors. Honestly, I've been looking for a style that I saw ONCE and have thought about since. Unfortunately, I couldn't find that one but fell in love with another. He insisted. (I told you he loves me!) If I develop a handbag obsession, he is to blame. LOL!

I just took these pictures real quick and don't feel like looking for the pictures online.

(found this online in brown. mine's "vanilla")

Its simple and SO me. I love it and it does everything I need a purse to do.

I've never been a HUGE fan of COACH or any of the other brands because I would much rather pay for high quality leather than the same amount for canvas. I also am not fond of signature monograms. I like my bags plain and simple and this is just perfect for me. What I love most about this is the feel of the calf skin leather. I usually love lambskin leather a lot more... but I am not going to complain about this one. *swoons* Thanks Baby!

Went back to our room for the water shows. Found ourselves at the Wynn buffet. I hate to admit but it wasn't my favorite in Vegas. I had high expectations but was left pretty disappointed. Oh well... first time for everything and I wouldn't know that I didn't like it if I didn't try it, right?

Hustled and got into Tryst and cut everyone in line at XS... without paying a dime. Whoever told us that everyone has to pay and there are no special treatments were lying or weren't so lucky. I've been wanting to check out XS for a long time now and this is the first time I actually made it (I hate and usually refuse to wait in lines). The club itself was beautiful and I had so much fun dancing in the water... but I wasn't enjoying the overcrowded dance floor so much. I would much rather be at a smaller club or lounge with better music and more room to dance. Oh well... I hope I don't come off as I am complaining because I'm not. I had a great time and glad that I went. I just think I would rather check out other clubs the next time I get a chance.

OH... and I got to meet up with an old friend of mine since my middle school and soccer playing days. It was so great to see her after so many years. I wish we would have had a chance to actually sit down and talk and catch up, but she was such a great sport and met up with us for the club and stayed for about an hour or two. She's a Kindergarten teacher down there and its great to see that she is doing so well nowadays. I've really missed her and our other friends. We will definitely have to have another reunion with the other girls soon. We went back to the hotel and some of the others gambled while a few of us crossed over to Planet Hollywood and got our munchies at Earl's. By far my favorite sandwich shop and I was waiting and anticipating visiting this place again after contemplating seconds back in September when I first tried it. YUMM! If you haven't tried it, you much! In words of one of the girls, "it was definitely worth the walk".

The next morning, we had to say our goodbyes to Vegas. After packing, we went to check out the new city center at Aria. BEAUTIFUL place! I didn't realize how much I loved interesting architecture. The place was amazing and I fell in love with everything there except for the prices on the mochas. Ugh... my first $7 cup of WCM... but it was pretty darn good.

We had lunch at the famous Pink's. I'm not a big fan of hot dogs... but this one was pretty damn good. I know it doesn't look so appetizing but it really is YUM!

Chili fries... with onions (my own addition). Mmmmmm!!

We went back to Aria after lunch and did a little gambling before hitting the road. I lost $16 on the slots after about 3 minutes and called it quits! I've never had luck in gambling... sucks. Sam loves craps (the name of the game still makes me giggle) and so I joined him at the tables. I got there and thats when he started coming up. It was his turn to roll and the older men at the table were cheering him on and telling him that the lady next to him must be his good luck charm. He agreed. He bets small... but after the end of his rolls, he cashed out and was $463 richer. Whoot! I was a happy camper and he was a lot sexier when he wins! HAHA... totally kidding!

We ended our trip over dinner at a pho restaurant in Placentia. This is how I ended it:

It would take me forever to go through all the details but although the trip was mellow, the laughing was nonstop. I love my party train and really look forward to our next trip together.

P.S. I'm not allowed to get into details on the most memorable parts because what happens in Vegas is supposed to stay in Vegas, but the memories live on in my heart. Always.

Being a BAD GAL!

I am being a bad girl and am in a shopping mood again! But then... when am I not in a shopping mood? I shouldn't be doing any shopping, but how can I not? I was probably born to shop or something, but I just haven't realized it yet or I haven't found a job that will pay me to do so. I should have kept the Personal Shopper job at Nordstrom many moons ago, huh? Nah... I don't see myself living in Cedar Rapids... thats just nuts! (No offense to anyone who lives there now)

Though I am in a shopping mood... even though I wouldn't be doing any real shopping, online window shopping, I can't seem to figure out what it is that I want to (online window) shop for. Anyone who knows me knows that if I don't have anything in particular that I need, you can probably find me in the cosmetics department! AND... that is where I am.

I love the cute little packaging and themes that different companies come up with. One of my favorites (for its packaging AND prodcts) has got to be Benefit! Whoever is the designer for it all is genius and must have a bubbly and fun personality! I haven't tried all of their products, not even most (can't afford to), but I've tried and loved quite a bit. Check out some of my faves:

Bad Gal Lash... how cute is that? I love this mascara... and you can get a small size for only $9 just to try! Even drug store brands cost almost the same as that. Totally worth a try if you ask me!

SO cute!! This thing really does work! It practically dries up your zit or pimple and within a few hours, its once considered a mountain bump is as flat as the plain (the rest of your face). I highly recommend... but please don't use it all the time or all over your face because as I mentioned, it dries up your skin wherever you apply it.

The packaging itself is a turn on! Oh my! But wait until you actually try the product. Lets just say that the packaging is NOT misleading. *giggles*

Ahhh... I love this! For a nice, subtle, glow... and its not heavy or too thick like a lot of highlighters... very easy to blend and you can mix a drop with your tinted moisturizer for a soft, dewy, glow.

Ever wondered how some celebrities have ultra smooth and sleek looking legs that don't seem to have any scars or discoloration at all? Almost looks like they are wearing pantyhose, even? Well, I think I may have found their secret!

Now... here are a few things that I would like to try... seems so interesting!

Why its called Dear John? I really don't know but it surely caught MY attention!

February 17, 2010

What to do, Teedaloo!!

For anyone who is curious, its back up! :D

I know, I know... its a work in process and its not completely finished, but you get the idea. I should have done this a long time ago. Its not the best thing out there, but I am pretty darn proud of it considering the fact that I learned how to do everything myself and had enough patience to put it all together. Its pretty interesting and as I might have mentioned before, its pretty mind boggling!

I would really appreciate input and some feedback, if possible. Give it to me... I can take it!

Please note that this is solely for fun (and it IS fun) and for my entertainment and anyone else who may come across it and are interested in some of the things that I am interested in.


My current Want/Need/Must Have...!!

I broke my blush many moons ago and refused to fork up the money for a brand new one. The crumbles in its case worked fine for awhile and I still refer to it as my favorite blush... even if its in a million pieces and can never be whole again, my love for it will live on. Sadly though, I'm running low with only a few pieces of crumbles left. I told myself not to spend more money on makeup until I use up everything that I have, but knowing me... thats going to take a couple of decades. :( I Need/Want/Must Have this. If you love me, you will give me back my love!

Its simple, really. Just click on the picture and it will bring you to the site. Choose the color... and in my case, my fave is ORGASM (its the name of the color, perverts!)... put it in your shopping cart, enter in your billing information and enter MY shipping information (let me know when you need it) and voila! You will make my day! No wait... my year! :D

Yes... and I love you too! :)

Silver Lining? NO.... Silver Dress PLEASE!

I don't know if I ever mentioned this before, but I am going to Vegas this weekend with the Husband and our friends! Although it wasn't said to be a couples' trip, it most likely will turn out to be. The past few times I went to Vegas with Sam was during our couples' trips... and we always have good ol' mellow fun. This time around though, before all of us start popping out babies (although a couple have some buns in the oven already), I would like to party it up at least for a night. Some of the other girls agreed to it.

If you haven't already noticed, I LOOOOOOVE themes when I go out. Especially when its the girls who have to get into the theme, it makes it more fun and having the little bit of restriction in what we have to wear is a challenge and that excites me. I told you that I live my life like its a game... I don't think thats necessarily a good thing, but its fun while I am living it. :)

Last year, my other groups of friends have already had silver themes, but this group of friends haven't yet. I guess silver is the IT color or something. I don't mind because I personally love silver and anything blingy myself. So for this upcoming weekend... guess what the theme will be!! *silence* YUP! You guessed it! SILVERRRRR! Honestly, I just bought a cute little black dress that I was hoping to wear, but I refuse to be a party pooper or difficult in any way, so silver it is! It will be fun!

NOW... what do I wear? I don't want to wear what I wore in the past... only because they are all far too flashy and this is less of a blingy theme. PLUS... I want an excuse to shop! If you've been reading my blog, you know that I am a cheapy and to be quite honest with you, I am not at a state where I would pay more than $50 for something I might only wear once anymore. AND... if its on sale or a bargain in any way, it most likely awesome in my book!

So here is what I found and I think it has potential... AND... its over 50% OFF... SCORE!!

Tell me the truth... is it ugly? Well... I know I shouldn't care what others think, but I wouldn't like the idea that I look like Tin Man whilst walking with my head held high believing that I looked good.

Reading the reviews on the site, I guess I will have to see it before purchasing. I think that calls for a mall run. I'm starting to hate the mall when I can shop online. Who is with me on that one?

No really... so... what do you think?

February 15, 2010

Oh St. Valentine...

I didn't receive flowers this year... only because I told Sam to never buy me flowers again because they will die in a matter of days and if he was to give me that money to shop, I would appreciate and love him so much more. He told me that he was going to... but was afraid that he'd get yelled at. He's so right... smart man who is learning more and more each day. That means... more money going into my shopping fund. Whoo hoo!

This Valentines' Day was the first one that we actually spent together... alone. The last time we spent Valentines' Day together, it was to celebrate a friend's birthday so we didn't really do the typical boyfriend/girlfriend Valentines' Day celebration rituals, but we still had fun. OH... and this is our first Valentines' Day together as a married couple. :)

We were on the verge of not celebrating at all... if it was up to me. I mean... we celebrate love every day, so one day of the year that we are supposed to by society and hallmark's standards was sort of "meh" to me. But then I thought about it again and figured... why not? Valentines' Day used to be one of my favorite holidays when I was younger because it was fun to pass out Valentines' Day cards and candies to classmates and friends. I used to be secretly envious of those who would get flowers and balloons in high school... until I started getting some of my own too. HAHA! Its nice to feel special... even if everyone else in the world is feeling special too. So... why not make someone I love feel special? It couldn't hurt, right?

I won't get into details, but yesterday was just amazing. In Sam's words, it was the best Valentines' Day EVER...! He had to work but wanted to take me out on a nice romantic dinner. It was PERFECT! We got outdoor seating and it was right on the water. To make it even better, our table was as close to the water as you can get... with nobody's head blocking our view. We had yummy wine and talked about lots of things happening... and our future. I felt all giddy inside like it was or first date or something.. I just couldn't stop smiling. We came home to more wine... more sweet talks... and... nevermind. :)

I know I sound like a little school girl in her first puppy love, huh? Oh well! I just logged on Facebook and pulled some of our pictures that were at some point my Profile Picture... (LOL) and compiled them here. This is about to be my new desktop wallpaper.

February 13, 2010


I have decided to give the laptop a break and float around in the bathtub for a little while. If there is one thing that makes my day better and allows me to truly unwind, it has got to be a bubble bath! If it was later... and by that I mean, later than 11am, I would have poured myself a big glass of wine. However, that might make me a little more tense with my fear of drowning. And yes, I have drowned before. (in a two feet pool in the nearby park of my old house, to be exact).

Right now, my only fear is of dropping this phone into the water and getting the dirty looks from people learning that I have gone through yet another phone. If it does happen, let me just clarify that it is not my fault if it suddenly decides to jump out of my hands!

Okay... just saying it got me even more scared. Let me continue when the water gets cold because that is when I will be done. Toodles!

Recap: Red & Black Party

Since I decided to be more consistent with my blog, I guess I should somewhat try my best to update you on what I didn't get to blog about. It might take awhile if I was to write every little detail. And come on... most of us are visual lovin' kind of folks who would rather see the story through pictures than through words. So... here we go!

I'll start off with this past weekend. Cool? Cool.

It was my Brother in Law's birthday. Actually, its his birthday today but with Valentines' Day being this weekend and most of his friends would have been busy, he decided to celebrate early. Fine by me... I'm always up for a good time! It was good times, indeed!

He wanted a RED and BLACK party... since I already had a black and white party for mine. It actually turned out great because I've been waiting for an excuse to wear my red heels for awhile! :) We had dinner... some of us did, anyway... and then rolled out to my in law's house for the party. Since I've moved down here, the house had turned into a party house. I don't know what that says... but its been fun! ;)

It was a VERY memorable night. I'm sure everyone had a great time like I did... it was awesome!

The LADIES... bright picture, but at least we all had our eyes open!

The GUYS... okay next!! JK!

The Brothers... youngest to oldest from left to right. My old fart! :p

The other guys...

Our shot tray. I refilled that thing at least 10 times... seriously! LOL... my games are dangerous!

Hijacked Kat's camera when she asked me to take a picture. LOL!

Before the birthday boy's face got smashed into it.

He's like my Brother... we got some silly genes!

If you look closely, you can see me tryin' to sneak in the picture in the very back! LOOK!

Need you, Miss New Booties!!

Is finding a pair of booties really that hard? I never thought that it would ever be this difficult but after the past few trips to the mall, I am a believer. What gets me is that I am not even that picky and what I am looking for is very general. Here is what I need my future booties to be:

  • black
  • close toed
  • calf length
  • standard heel (no wedges, flats, or heels that can be considered as weapons)
  • look good and casual... somewhat funky
  • leather... not patent leather nor suede though
  • all black... not looking for a wooden heel or anything
  • inexpensive (I refuse to pay more than $50 for a pair that is almost out of season already)
Really though... thats not too much to ask for, is it?

I came across lots of booties that are open toed, but thats not what I am looking for. Yes, it is probably one of the latest trends and it is cute, but again, its not what I am looking for.

Shopping online nowadays seems to be a lot easier but now, I can't decide which ones are better between these two. Help?

NOTE: Okay... I did see both of them yesterday, but one of them was only available in brown and the other one were out of stock. LAME.

Okay... which ones do you like better? THANKS for the help! :)

I... Can't... Do... It!!

Today, I thought long and hard about this blog. This blog is the reason for my guilt so early in the morning. This blog is the reason why I cannot get certain things done. On the flip side, this blog is my friend. This blog is the ear that will always be open and listen to all of my gibberish without once asking me to shut up (despite the occasional errors I get after trying to post something, but that's a different story). No matter how ridiculous my thoughts or how useless my words are, my blog had been here for me.

I've cheated on this beloved friend of mine a few times and tested the waters of livejournal. After a year or two, this blog was willing to take me back... no questions asked.

CONFESSION: I've been doing some lurking around and my eyes were wandering elsewhere... to places like Wordpress and Tumblr. It interested me in ways that made me feel like it was something new and fresh... like a fresh piece of meat waiting for me to devour it. I didn't devour it though... I only licked it a few times. They weren't the taste that I was looking for... but I kept licking just in case it was and I was missing it all. After all that, I knew that I couldn't resist coming back to what I've had and loved for years. I am ashamed for thinking that the grass was greener on the other side. Even if it is greener on the other side, I am content being on the dry and brittle side where memories and the kind of love shared is irreplaceable.

This morning, I almost ended this blog... but I just couldn't. I can't. I wouldn't.

So here's a toast to more gibberish blogging... and an extra kiss to the ex girlfriends who claim to not care but always come back to visit and wonder what I'm up to. If you were near, I'd give you a hug and tell you that its okay to find me interesting because honey... I find myself interesting too! :)

Dear John...

I finally got to see Dear John a couple of nights ago. I had never wanted to see a movie so badly in my life. My anticipation for Twilight and Sex and the City didn't even come close to my desperate desire for Dear John. I had read the book about a year or two ago and I couldn't put it down because I couldn't get the tears to stop and I couldn't sleep without finishing it. So seeing the preview for it for the first time when I went to go see New Moon, I nearly fainted in my seat from happiness and excitement.

As expected though, the movie was not as good as the book. Everything in the movie was what I saw in my mind when I read the book... with half the passion. :( Yes, Channing Tatum is good looking, but for some reason, I wasn't too attracted to him in the movie.

Although the story didn't exactly have a fairytale happy ending, it was a touching and heart warming ending. I loved the story... a true love story that reminds you that love doesn't come easy and not to take it for granted.

Needless to say, I cried throughout most of the movie. In fact, I cried before the actual sad parts because I already knew that the sad parts were coming. In some ways, reading the book first ruined it for me.

If you are looking for a fast paced, full of action, and not lovey dovey movie, then this is not for you. Personally, I loved the movie for the story behind it... but it could have been portrayed a lot better. Just my opinion.

Okay... that was a long post considering I am posting from my phone. And yes, I am proud! :)

Its Been Awhile...

Its been awhile since I blogged, huh? I sort of miss it, but I don't. For awhile I forgot the fact that I even had a blog! I know that doesn't sound so great since I have been telling myself to write more, but I've been too busy and distracted to even find the time. :( Right now, I am in bed and should be sleeping since it is about 1:30am, but I remembered my blog and wanted to show it some love.

CONFESSION: I have been thinking about moving my blog and organizing my thoughts into various ones. A part of me still wants to keep this going since I've had it for quite some time... but I don't know. I am so torn. We will see how I feel in the morning.

I will be going out to Huntington Beach with Jackie tomorrow morning to pick up her bib number for her race. Excited for her... its her second race already. I still have yet to run a race like I had wanted to... but I will, one day. Afterwards, its hanging out with the girls for lunch and a movie. I'm looking forward to it... much needed break.

Tomorrow we are also celebrating my Brother in Law's birthday. I've been helping his girl plan it... so I am very excited for it. As usual, we are going to have a great time!

Alright... falling asleep. There had been some things I have been wanting to write about so maybe I will find some time this weekend. I hope you all didn't miss me too much.

Hugs and Kisses!!
