Weekend Recap & New Jewlery

Friday was like any other Friday night for me. I went out to party, just like I do every Friday night. I stay in all week, so Friday is really the only time I get out. Our usual party place, where our friends Ryan, Tyler, and Kyle live, was changed this week to my friend Kelly's house. Ryan went home this weekend and they are redoing the floors, so that was probably the reason. It was a lot of fun, to go someplace new for once. Unfortunately, after we went back to the house, with Tyler, boyfriend noticed he didn't have is phone, so after looking around the house we had to walk back to Kelly's. And of course, it wasn't there, but Tyler found it at the house after all. And luckly, Tyler was nice enough to give us a ride back to our apartment so we didn't have to make that walk as well. After making some mac and cheese, we called it a night.

Saturday night, I layed around, like I usually do, because I was so exhausted from the night before. Even though I was so tired, I woke up early, after boyfriend went to work. But I ended up taking a three hour nap before he got home. And then another, two hour nap, with him, after he got home. The highlight of my night was watching Princess Protection Program on Disney channel since I missed the premiere the night before. I enjoyed the movie, it was really good! After the movie we went to McDonald's since neither of us had ate all day and decided to go over to Wal-Mart to see what kind of beads they had. I ended up getting a set, which makes 2 necklaces, a bracelet, and a set of earrings. I also got a box of random ocean colored beads.

Today was a pretty uneventful day. Boyfriend wanted to grill out over at the guy's house, but Tyler said he already ate. Kyle was ready to after Ryan got home, but by that time boyfriend was already making some fried chicken and french fries, which were so good! It would have been nice to enjoy a beautiful day, for once, but that food was good too! The badside to the day, was our sink got a leak because of the garbage disposal. Boyfriend was able to control it and mopped up the mess, but we need to call the maintenace guy. Today I also made a couple peices of jewlery from the set I bought at Wal-Mart. I made one of the necklaces and the pair of earrings. The necklace took forever, but I think it turned out pretty good. I have some pictures and I apologize if there is fuzziness. I'm working on borrowing a camera to take better pictures so I can upload them to Etsy.

Well, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend =)

Take the ABC Authors Challenge

I heard of this challenge from Sara over at Dragonfly Book Reviews but the challenge originally comes from Meggin from Serendipity Book Reviews.

The object of the challenge is to read 26 books, with each book's author being each letter of the alphabet.

Here are the rules: (I just copy and pasted them from Meggin)

  • You can only use an author's name once. For example, I could use Meg Cabot and read a book by her for either C or M, but you can't read a book by her for C AND M, even if they're different books.
  • Set your own time limit. This is 26 different books, and since everyone reads at different rates, has to find books and authors for the challenge, etc., you set the due date to what's best for you. Mine will be by the December 11 (my birthday, woo!), or July 1 of 2010, but you set your own.
  • Post about this challenge on your blog. That way, lots of people will know about it, and participate. I'd appreciate it TONS!
  • Have fun! Make sure the book you're reading is something you enjoy!
Since I'm a pretty fast reader, I'm going to give myself 6 months to complete the challenge. So I will read 26 books by Christmas. I know I can get a lot read this summer, but after school starts, in a couple months, its going to be harder to have time to read.

But I figured since the book that I just started reading is an Ann Rule book, it was a sign that I should do this, since I've already started ;)

Things I Want Thursday

Sass at Are You Sassified started a weekly thing called "Things I Want Thursday." I found it by means of Nickie over at Learn to Fly. I figured I would do it since its something new and it's been awhile since I updated you all on whats going on with me.

So here the things I want...

  1. I Boyfriend and I have been living paycheck to paycheck lately, and I wish we had money for extra things, like going out to eat or shopping. Its been awhile since we went out for lunch at Olive Garden. We don't even have money to go to the movies.
  2. I be able to go shopping. Its been awhile since I updated my closet or bought a new pair of shoes. But of course, this brings me back to number 1.
  3. I go see Transformers 2. It came out yesterday and I really want to go see it, but I don't know if I'll be able to. I may just have to wait until it comes out of DVD.
  4. I go home for the 4th of July. My dad and step-mom are having a huge 4th of July party with a cookout, volleyball, slip and slide races, and so much more, and I'm not sure if I'll be able to go. It all depends on if Boyfriend will be able to get off work. It really sucks because I want to go home and see my family and actually do something this year for the 4th since last year I was stuck working.
  5. I go to the Miley Cyrus concert. I love Miley and so does my best friend. We have been planning on going to her concert for a long time but it doesn't look like that is going to happen. When I had money to buy the ticket, she didn't because she wanted to pay off her bills first. And when we get the money, I'm sure all the tickets will be sold out, if they aren't already. This also happened when we wanted to go see Britney Spears.
  6. I internet connection to be less crappy. The internet at my apartment complex is free but the downside to that is that the connection sucks.
I think thats all I have for now...

In other news...I can't believe what has happend to Micheal Jackson. He has passed away at 50 years old. Thats so sad considering he was getting ready for a come back tour. I'm not a big fan of him but its still so sad to hear.

Made More Jewlery

I've made some more pieces of jewelry for my Etsy shop that I'd like to share with you guys. I apologize, again, for the crappy pictures. I need to borrow a friend's camera, because I lost the charger to mine...

The second bracelet I made

Another pair of earrings

Boyfriend actually made this pair of earrings

And I finally came up with a name for my Etsy shop. I had a little help from a girl on Twitter. The name for my shop is called Cherished Love. I set up my shop but I have yet to post my jewelry since I still need to take good pictures of what I've made.

I've Finally Started Making Jewlery

Friday afternoon boyfriend and I went to Micheal's to get beads and supplies to start making jewelry. We finally took it out last night and messed around with it. I ended up making two pairs of earrings and a bracelet. Kody, on the other hand, had a bit of trouble trying to come up with stuff to make. He was mostly the one that did all the difficult work, like bending the earpin to make a loop for my earrings and putting the clasp beads on my bracelet :P

So here are some pictures of what I created...sorry about the blurriness, these pictures were taken on my Blackberry, and I'm working on taking better pictures.

Again, sorry about the blurriness. When I put together my Etsy website, the pictures will look better and there will be more detailed pictures. I just want to know what you guys think. I'll probably make some more tonight.

I also need to come up with a name, any suggestions?

Weekend Recap & Another Birthday Party

Friday was my friend Wes' 20th birthday so they had a party for him over at the house. It was one of the most memorable parties boyfriend and I has ever attended because we carried the beer pong table for 13 straight games. We played for 3 1/2 hours! It was pretty much the only thing we did all night. We waited about an hour until we actually got to play, since the list was so long, but when we did finally get to! I think that may be a record in that house and that house has had a lot of parties with a lot of beer pong :P As much as I loved being part of the team that carried the table pretty much the entire night, I was sad I couldn't do much else. But, then again, I don't think anyone in our group can say that they have done that before :P I know me and boyfriend are a good team but we have never been that good!

Me and the Birthday Boy
(he was pretty drunk :P)

Friday was also payday for boyfriend so we finally had money to go buy some groceries. It had been about a month since we had been grocery shopping last. But luckily since its just the two of us we don't have to go very often. We usually go every two weeks, when he gets paid, but last pay day was pretty rough for us since rent was do and we were short on that. Thank goodness he got a pretty big check this week, so we put 300 in savings to save for rent, we got groceries, and we were even able to get some stuff for me to start my jewlery business. It was really hard picking out beads and stuff because I just didn't know where to start. Boyfriend gave me $60 to spend, and at first I went way over, so after putting some stuff back we settled on about $75 dollars worth of stuff, which half of that was just tools. I got some stuff to make a few pieces, so I'll be able to get more in a couple more weeks.

And I'm sure the next payday will be huge because boyfriend did great yesterday, earning over 100 dollars, and today he has done even earning closer to 200 dollars.

Yesterday I wasn't really up for doing much, because of the night before's antics. So I basically just laid around the house and talked on Twitter for most of the day. Boyfriend and I decided to not go out so when he got home we went to get some Jimmy Johns, which I had been craving, but unable to get, for a long time. After eating we pretty much just came home and went to bed.

I haven't even finished "Twilight" yet or started making jewlery. Thats on today's agenda, since the day is still young, along with doing the dishes and calling my dad for Father's Day. If I don't call him he'll get upset, since we don't get to see each other much. My parent's never got married and I never see my dad much, so we don't have a really close relationship. I haven't seen him since Easter, even though I went home not too long ago, I just didn't have time to see him.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a great Father's Day =)

P.S. If you want to know more about the outfit I wore go over to my fashion blog where I did an outfit post on it.

The Minds of Billy Milligan

I finished reading The Minds of Billy Milligan last week. It was actually my second time reading this book. This is one of my very favorite books because it gives a great interpretation of what I want to do when I become a psychologist. My main goal is to work with multiple personalities, and this book is a wonderful story on that.

The Minds of Billy Milligan is a true story on a man, named William Milligan, who was arrested in the late 1970's for committing rape on three women at Ohio State University. It was later known that he suffered from multiple personalities and that one of his other personalities committed the rapes. Billy Milligan also made history because he was the first person to be found not guilty by reason of insanity for having mulitple personalities.

This is the true, very contraversial, story of Billy Milligan. This story is what made me want to be a clinical psychologist. It was the first psycological story I read. I read it a few years ago, but realized I really couldn't remember all of the details to the story so I decided to read it again. If you have ever read Sybil (or even seen the movie) you will love this story. It's the shocking, sad story of how this man ended up with 24 personalities. I highly recommend it to everyone. Once you start it, you wont be able to put it down.

Next on my reading list: Twilight...which I've already started and should be done with in a couple days.

My Other Blogs

Along with this blog I also have some other blogs I would like you all to check out. This is just my personal blog where I can talk about things going on in my life, but I wanted separate places where I can talk about other things that I TV, Celebs, and Fashion.

The first is my TV blog...I watch A LOT of TV and instead of writing reviews on this blog I decided to just make a different, separate blog. It's called Seriously!?. I watch many different TV shows so check it out to see if there are any that you watch too.

The second one is called Hollywood's Hijinks. I decided to create this blog because I'm always going on a ranting about the stupid things celebrities do or what the tabloids are saying. So, again, instead of ranting on about that stuff in this blog, I just decided to make a separate one for celebrity related stuff. Because sometimes I have a lot to say.

And then I have a fashion blog that I just created. It's called Fashionable Frenzie I love fashion so I thought "Why not?" I can put my spin on fashion with Polyvore and give my opinions on the fashion trends out there and what not.

When I get my jewlery business up and running I think I may open a new blog just for that.

So...please go check out my other blogs so I can get a bigger following for those as well =)

My Bestie's 21st Birthday Celebration--Part Two

Friday a party was thrown for my best friend, Jackie, who turned 21 yesterday. And yesterday was the second part of her birthday celebration.

For dinner the girls and I went to dinner at Golden Corral. I wasn't planning on going because I didn't have money but Jackie insisted on paying for me. I felt bad because it was her birthday but what could I do? I couldn't say 'no' because she said it wouldn't be the same without me. But I was glad that I went because I love spending time with just my girlfriends and we had such a good time. We got a few stares from people because we were constantly laughing so loud.

After dinner we changed into our other dresses and took a bunch of pictures. We were then ready to hit the club. We went to the same place we went for my 21st birthday because every Saturday they have dollar drink nights. It was so much fun.

Jackie's first legal drink

Dakota, Porcha, Jackie, and I

After the club closed we headed over to my old house to party some more with the rest of our friends. It was fun up until Dakota's boyfriend decided he wanted to fight with my boyfriend over something stupid. We were all playing beer pong and I guess Kody said something about him being stupid and it really made him mad. I didn't hear what he said, though. It was such a ridiculous fight because they are both good friends and it was stupid for them to be fighting. Thank goodness they made up quickly.

Then for some reason, Kody decided he would start fighting with me. I know it was not really him, though. When he gets blackout drunk it's like he has an alter personality that comes out and is a real big jerk. We get home and I try and help him because it looks like he is going to get sick, and all he wants to do is pick a fight with me. But I love him dearly and I know that isn't really him talking so even though it upsets me at the time, I let it go. I really don't know how he got that drunk because when I was leaving the club I called him, and he sounded fine to me. He didn't even sound drunk at all. And he said he had been careful all night and that he had been watching how much he drank. Oh, well. Its done and over with and I'm over it. I know he was really trying not to get that way but sometimes it happens unexpectantly.

Then this morning he had to go into work for THREE HOURS when he isn't even suppose to go in on Sunday's anymore. He shouldn't even have drove because he woke up and was still drunk, but he couldn't get ahold of anyone to call in. I guess the only thing he did was sit in the back room and read his book the whole time. Which was probably best. I don't even know why they needed him in the first place because they had three other people opening and every other person in his department was schedualed for that day. Oh well...

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend =)

Wedding Bells

No, I am not engaged...yet :P But I know who I am going to marry and I know that one day it will happen. In the meantime, I've already started looking at wedding stuff :P I thought it would be weird at first but I read a lot of blogs where other women have started planning their weddings before they actually got engaged. I just can't wait to plan my wedding so why not start now? If I start now, then maybe I wont need as much time to do it when then time does come :P

So here are some pictures of dresses that I found on The Knot and really liked. What I love is that there are so many really cute dresses and they are marked as "very affordable." That means they are $600 dollars or less. I don't plan on spending a lot on my dress so that is perfect for me. I don't need anything too fancy, that stands up on it's own, or has a super long train. Just something simple and cute.

Which one is your favorite out of these?

My favorites are the second one and the last one.

My Bestie Has Turned 21 =)

I'm so excited that my best friend, Jackie, has finally turned 21. She no longer has to rely on me or anyone else to buy her alcohol! Last night we had a party for her over at my old house and it was so much fun. Jackie didn't know if she would end up having a good time because she thinks the guys that live there now don't really like her but I told her that she was going to have a blast because I was going to be there. If one of us isn't there we usually don't have the best time because there aren't many girls that hang out with our group so there aren't many girls that are over there on a regular basis and even when Dakota is there, she is the one to always get really drunk and she mostly is with the guys anyway (She is way more like a dude than she is a girl :P) But anyway, Jackie ended up having a really fun time, and the boys let her listen to what music she wanted, because they usually don't. And our other friends Porcha and Asia were also there, who are Jackie's new roommates. I'm really glad she had a good time because it was her 21st birthday so she had to have a good time :P

Jackie, the birthday girl

The birthday girl and I

Porcha, Dakota, me, and Jackie

Tonight we are all going out to dinner and then out to the club. I wasn't planning on going out to dinner with the group because I don't have any money to each but Jackie insisted that I go and she would pay. I really don't want her to because it is HER birthday but she insisted and told me that it was her birthday dinner and it wouldn't be the same without me so, I said ok, because I didn't want to offend her or make her upset on her birthday.

Then for the club were going to the same place we went for my birthday because every Saturday they have dollar drink night. I hate spending a fortune on drinks when we go out so we always go out with there are specials.

I also wanted to announce that I'm going to start making my own jewelry and sell it on Etsy. I wanted to blog about this earlier in the week but the power cord to my boyfriend's computer is no longer fixable so we have to wait until we have money to buy a new battery. Luckly, my friends John and Jeremy are coming up on Wednesday and they have my laptop so they are bringing that with them. They were suppose to come up this weekend for Jackie's birthday but were unable to.

Anyway, my boyfriend was talking about how he wanted to sell this cloth that one of his coworkers, at Sears, is selling. Its this amazing cloth (which goes by that name, or something like it) and Kody was able to clean his entire car with it and it looked like he had just gotten back from the car wash. All he did was take the cloth to it and it cleaned up all the water spots that were on the car. I thought he did go to the car wash but he said he didn't. So he want's to start selling that around at all the car businesses in town. It is originally to be used around the house but apparantly it can be used for other things as well.

While he was getting excited about selling this cloth, I was wondering what I could do to rake in some money. It doesn't look like I'm going to be able to find a job anytime soon because my car still needs fixed and then it needs tags and insurance, and by the time that happens our phones will probably be shut off because we haven't had the money to pay them in a couple months. So I got to thinking, and I thought of all the girls around the blogisphere that sell their homemade jewlery on Etsy so I thought, I should do that to. And Kody said he used to make and sell jewery with his brother, when they were younger and needed money, so he said they he would help me. We wen't to Micheal's just to get an idea of what kind of beads and stuff they had, so when Kody get's paid next week, were going to go back and buy some stuff. Hopefully we will have the money to do so, because I'm really excited to start this and start raking in some money myself.

So what do ya guys think? Do you think I could do it?

Polyvore ♥

I've been following Leetid and her blog Life of Leetid and she always has these sets she has made on Polyvore. I love all the sets she makes, they are so cute, so I decide to start making some sets of my own. I love fashion and I love finding really cute sets to wear out and what not.

So here is the first set I made. Just an outfit to wear out to the club. I love pink and black together.

What do ya think?

Nice Little Sunday Afternoon

I just love spending Sunday afternoons with Boyfriend. He now has every Sunday off work so we will have more great Sunday afternoons to spend together.

Kody's grandma was nice enough to send up some money, because we needed more to live on, and I didn't want to ask my mom for more than she was already giving us. So we were happy that we were able to go see UP after all. We were sad that we didn't have enough money to go this week.

First we went and got his his hair cut. I love his long shaggy hair, but it was getting way too long and it was starting to look like a mullet, so we got it cut. I was scared they would cut it too short, but they did good. It's still long and shaggy, but its not in his eyes, which was the point of getting it cut. After getting it cut we decided to walk around the mall, but we got into a little disagreement and had to leave and go out to the car to talk it out. And we made up, pretty quickly, just like we normally do. We just had a little disagreement, it was nothing too serious. I'm just glad we got it all worked out. So after our little misunderstanding we just decided to go to McDonalds and get some ice cream because we had half an hour until the movie started.

But then it was finally time to go see UP and I was so excited because I've been wanting to see this movie since I saw the preview at the Hannah Montana movie. It just looked so funny and cute, I couldn't wait to see it. And it defiantly exceeded my expectations. It was one of the cutest movies I've ever seen. I loved it. I highly recommend it to everyone of all ages. And after the movie we went to get ice cream from Wal Mart because I really wanted sprinkles on it, and Mcdonalds doesn't have sprinkles for their ice cream.

And now I'm just sitting at home, waiting for the series premier of Kendra on E! I love the Girls Next Door and Kendra is my favorite, so I'm so excited that she is getting her own show since she found love and is now getting married. I'm so happy and excited for her. It was defianatly the time for her to move out of the mansion and to experience life as she should. She has never been on her own before, so there is no better time than now for her to experience the great things in life. Like cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, and everything else. I love Kendra and I think she is so funny so I know I'm gonna love her new show.

Well, I hope everyone had a great weekend =)

Things Are Starting to Look Up

If you have been reading my blog, and you read my post that I added a couple days ago, you'll know that boyfriend and I have been having some financial problems. Well, I thought everything would be fine, or we would at least be able to make rent and buy a few groceries, but that wasn't the case.

Kody got his check last night and it turned out we were a hundred dollars short for rent. My heart dropped when we found out. All I could do was cry, because he works so hard at work, and I just felt terrible. He just found out that his commission was lowered from 9% to 4%, when the other departments are still at 9%. And it turns out he got a couple orders returned on him so that was why his check was lower than it was suppose to be.

We had no choice but to ask someone for help. We both hate asking for help, but we had to put our pride aside and just do it, because we really had no other choice. So, I called up my mom this morning and I told her what was up and that we needed money, so she was willing to wire us some money to pay the rest of rent. I feel so grateful to her, and I am so appreciative that she let us borrow the money to get by. She knows how much I hate asking for help, and I've never asked her for money, during the three years I've been on my own. I'm just so glad she let us borrow the money. And as soon as we get the money to pay her back, that is what we are doing.

We also got some more good news today! Kody and I have been trying to sell some books on Amazon and we got our first buyer today! He bought my old physics book from last year for abotu $30 bucks. Unfortunatly, it went to Kody's old account which has a negative balance because the check we gave to Meijer two weeks ago went through and it went over .11 in the account. After we deposit a couple more dollars into that account, we will no longer have that to worry about. I was kind of disapointed that we wouldn't have that extra money but at least we won't have to pay that money back later and we wont get another fee added on.

Despite the fact that we had to ask my mom to help us pay for rent, I'm so happy, and I hope that things continue to get better. I try not to let the worrying overcome me, but last night it did. Usually Kody is the one to do all the worrying, but for once it was me. But he reminded me, and himself, that it's not the end of the world and we aren't going to roll over and die because of this one thing. The summer is going to be hard, but as soon as school starts and we get our refund checks we'll have some money to help us pay for rent and credit cards. We may not have any money to go out tonight, but at least we have a roof over our heads and food on the table. We also have each other, and those are the most important things right now.

Money Problems Suck!

So, my boyfriend and I have been having a lot of money problems lately. Well it's been for awhile now. We just moved into a new apartment, which I love so much, and it looks like we may have to move out because we just can't afford it. Rent is 600 a month and Kody's paid last month's rent by himself and he is going to have to pay this upcoming month's rent himself. I keep telling him that it's not going to be this way for long, just the summer, because after school starts we will both get our refund checks from school. He will have to use his to pay off his credit card but I can use mine for my part of rent. Speaking of his credit card, that's one reason we may have to move again. The credit card company keeps calling him, and this time they actually have a real person calling and not a reminder recording message telling him he needs to pay up. They have a real person who called 10 times a day and sometimes like 15 minutes after another. He is so worried they will cancel his card and that is the only way he can get his credit up, but right now its making his credit go down. And my credit is already messed up with the medical bills I need to pay from last year. Our phones are close to being shut off because we can't afford to pay for them (stupid addicting Blackberrys!) and even if I did find a job I wouldn't have a way there because Kody needs to fix the power steering pump so I can actually drive it. He also owes the gas company like $400 from when we lived at the house. I just don't know what to do anymore and he is so worried about it I just don't know how to make him feel better. He tells me sometimes he feels so alone sometimes and feels like he is the only one worrying about this. I worry about it, I just don't let it overcome me. I just don't know what to do. Just a while ago he was looking for a cheaper apartment but then we need to know if they have any apartments open and then we need to find someone to take over this apartment and we would have to pay a $50 fee to get out of our lease. I just don't know what to do....

A Girls Night and Upcoming Concert

Last night I got together with my besties and we had a little girls night. It was nice because I haven't really hung out with them much lately. I'm usually just sitting at home with boyfriend everynight and the only time I see them is on the weekends when we all go to the house to drink. But last night was ladies night at one of the local bar/club. Ladies got $5 for walking through the door, so that was good considering I hate going to clubs or bars unless its dollar drink night because I'm poor and don't want to spent that much money on drinks. So Jackie and I sat at her house drinking some Jooses while we waited for Dakota to get there. After taking some pictures we finally left a little before midnight. I had such a fun time just dancing and hanging out with my girls. Jackie's 21'st is coming up soon so were gonna do it again soon =)

Jackie, Dakota, and I

In other news: MILEY CYRUS IS GOING ON TOUR THIS FALL!!!! Were so excited. Jackie and I have planned on going for awhile now. We have just been waiting for her to announce her tour. Now we have to wait until tickets go on sale Monday. We've planned to go on October 7th, in Columbus, Ohio. I have to ask my mom for the money since I'm poor and have no job. Besides, she never got me a birthday present, so I'll just put it that way for her. My sister, Ashlee also planned on going with us, and that's the day after her birthday, so she asked her mom to get her a ticket for her birthday. Dakota will also probably go, since she just said a couple weeks ago that we all should go to a concert this time (her and Jackie saw Hanson, when they were on tour.) I'm so beyond excited!!! I've only ever been to one concert before (All-American Rejects) but I know this will be the best concert we've ever been to!

Anyway, did I say I was excited =)

Let's Play Tagged

So I was tagged by Cherry Diva to play this little game....

Here are the rules:

1) Write a post naming six un/important things that make you happy
2) Link to the person who tagged you and then tag 6 other people to participate
3) Make sure to let the people you tagged know that you tagged them
4) If you don't feel like posting something or you don't have time you can just leave a comment

So, here are 6 un/important things that make me happy =)


I love shoes whether or not they are flip flops or heels. I have a pair of flip flops in like every color that I wear the most of and Old Navy flip flops are my favorite. I also own a ton of heels. I have multiple ones in the same color. I have a weak spot for a good priced pair of heels so I'm always looking for a pair of shoes for a really cheap price.


I'm pretty much obsessed with monkeys. I have a pretty nice collection of stuffed monkeys. My favorties are the monkey I made a few years ago at Build-A-Bear with a purple fairy dress (Her name is Maple), the purple monkey I got my senior year of high school from all the underclassman woodwind section in band at senior night, and the pink monkey I got my freshman year of college from my secret Valentine. Although, I love all my monkeys because they are all so darn cute =)


Pink is definatly my favorite color and if it comes in pink, I mostly likely have it. I'm totally obsessed with the color. Like I said, I'm a big girly girl and pink is definatly a girly girl color. Some things I have that are pink are my Blackberry, my digital camera, my toothbrush, my hair dryer, a couple pairs of heels, tons of nail polish, my favorite blanket, my body pillow, my dresser, shoe holder, laundry basket, and a couple handbags. There are probably many other things but I have so much pink crap I can't think of if all ;)


I'm not gonna lie...I watch way to much television. I'm always watching Disney Channel because I love Hannah Montana and most of the other shows they have on there. I love the documentaries on A&E and some of the reality shows on E! TLC and VH1. I also like the documentaries they have on E!. My favorite shows are One Tree Hill, Grey's Anatomy, and Lost.


I've only had my Blackberry for a few months but I love it! It's got everything I need in one. It's a phone, computer, digital camera, and MP3 player all in one! Sure its a little scratched up and the screen is cracked in a couple places, but its one amazing phone! And of course I had to get it in pink ;) I love it that when I leave the house and the comfort of my computer I can still get onto Twitter, Facebook, and Blogger of course! Which are three other things that make me happy but I can only list 6...

And the finale thing that makes me happy...


I don't know where I would be without my friends and family and my boyfriend. I am who I am because of them and they are the reason I'm here. My family is so supportive of the things I do and my friends are the best friends a girl can have. I know that they will always be there for me. And my boyfriend is my true love and I know he is my soul mate. I feel so lucky to have these people in my life =)

So there you have it...6 un/important things that make me happy...
