Five Fantastic Things

Whoo!!!! Here is this weeks Five Fantastic things! I love doing this post.

  1. Finding out all the classes that you have to take to complete your major! I don't know why, but this is really exciting for me.
  2. Ham on pizza! I have been really into this lately.
  3. Seeing people with crazy cool colors in their hair. I saw someone today with turquoise in her hair. It definitely inspired me!
  4. Breakfast for dinner :)
  5. Ellen Degeneres! One of my favorite people ever! She never fails to bring tears to my eyes from laughter.
Well there are some pretty fantastic things. I really am thinking about the whole turquoise hair thing. Not my whole head! Maybe just a streak or something! I did manage to take pictures of my outfit today so it is a double whammy!

I am still getting used to the whole taking pictures of myself, so bare with me! It is proving to be harder than I thought it would be. I don't know why it is proving to be so difficult for me haha. I really like this outfit. This cardigan thing is a piece that I just absolutely love! My mom was the one who thrifted it. When we had a garage sale this ended up outside, so I quickly stole it and brought it to the safety of my closet!

These boots sometimes are not the most comfortable to walk in, but I just love them! I got them for Christmas last year, and they have had a lot of use! I wore them almost every day in the winter.

Well today has proven to be a good day. I finally had the time to do another outfit post. I really need to figure out this whole situation haha. I am just so busy with school that I usually forget about it. I did miss the bus today because I was taking these pictures. I had to run up the dang street! This has happened more than once. It seems like the times I am running late are the only time EVER that the bus is actually on time! Oh well what can you do.

Well I hope everyone has had a splendid Wednesday. Yay for the middle of the week!

Yay! It is time for the weekly song again! So pretty much I gather a list of all my favorite songs for the week, and then I just choose a random one for this post. I can't ever decide on just one, so I have to do it at random because I like them all! Obvisously, they are on my weekly playlist!

The song for this week is "Skyscraper" by Demi Lovato. Yes I admit that I listen to Demi Lovato. This song is pretty inspiring to me. I really love what she is doing with the whole anti- bullying thing. It is time a celebrity stood up for us girls, and told us it is ok to not be a size 0, and then not being a size 0 herself haha It is all about being healthy! Girls need to stop comparing themselves to others, and realize that we are all beautiful and different. It isn't worth it wasting away your life trying to become someone else. Just be yourself!

Well anyway here is the song! The lyrics are pretty powerful. Enjoy!

Also here is the link to Demi's interview with Ellen! This is a little bit more about what she hopes to accomplish. Demi Interview

A Marvelous Weekend

This weekend was a date weekend. I went on pretty much TWO dates with my love (aka Curtis) and it was awesome. It was nice to be out and about for a little while. On Friday (the actual date) we went to dinner at Rodizio Grill which was absolutely fantastic! Then we went to go see Midnight in Paris (again) at the Broadway Theater, but they didn't take American Express so that didn't end up working out. It was ok though. It was still fun to just spend time with each other!

On Saturday it was a complete accident that we pretty much went out on another date. We decided to go to our favorite restraunt Cinegrill! We have been going to Cinegrill frequently for the past two and a half years. We love it! The atmosphere is great for just talking. It is nice because it usually is just a bunch of old people, so you just sit and listen to the piano player and talk. No noisy children! haha

This pizza is usually what we always get when we go. It is amazing!!! Pepperoni with feta cheeses crumbled on top. What could be better!

This picture is pretty awful, but I absolutely love this wall painting! This spans an entire wall of the restaurant. It has such a fun feel to it.

This picture is in no way flattering to me, but it never fails to absolutely crack me up! Curtis just had the most perfect timing to take it while that lady in the back was taking a HUGE bite of food! hahaha These little moments never fail to put a smile on my face. It is just brilliant.

After this we didn't know what to do so we went to a drive-in movie! I absolutely love drive-ins. We went and saw Contangion. It is kind of depressing. The first five minutes of the movie your are just like, wait what? How long has the movie been going for? haha So Curtis and I had to fun nights full of fun!

Today was fun to! Curtis and I went and took some pictures! I have to have an entire roll of film done by my next photo class on Tuesday, so I stressing a bit. You wouldn't think it is hard, but I want to feel like every picture is worth it considering film is so dang expensive. Curtis and I also went to his grandma and grandpa's house to celebrate his grandpa's 80th birthday! Whoo keep it going grandpa haha of course there were all sorts of delicious treats to be had, and then we went to Trio aferwards to get dinner. Dessert is always so much better when you have it before dinner. I need to make sure I work out major this week. Eating out three days in a row is not really agreeing with me!

I have been a major slacker and have only had one outfit post in the last week. I have come to realize that this is extremely hard! haha I am barely home, so I am always trying to fit something in. My goal this week is to at least do three. I am really bummed to because I loved the clothes a wore this weekend. Oh well. What can you do? Hopefully I can find some more time for it this weekend.

Well I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!

Five Fantastic Things

1. The days when I wake up and my hair is NOT flying in a million different directions

2. Realizing a musical artist you love just released a new album, and you don't have to wait 5 months for it to come out!

3. When friends come to visit you :)

4. Chicken Enchiladas

5. When that crazy guy in your Severe Weather class (don't judge) continues to say the most ridiculous things that make you laugh to yourself for ten minutes straight!

I wish I had some cool header or design for this post, but I am not skilled like that. Instead you get just plain old text! Yay! I think I am going to do a post like this every week. It is nice to just sit back and think of the little crazy things that make life beautiful, and put a smile on your face. It is so refreshing!

So I am going to try my first outfit post! I would not exactly call this one a success. I hope that I will get better as time goes on. So bear with me for these first few haha I really am liking the color mustard, but unfortunately I don't really have anything besides this shirt that is mustard. What is even more unfortunate is that it isn't even mine, it's my mom's haha good thing she is good at sharing!

I really love this wood ring that I have. I am being extra careful with it, because I accidentally cracked the band from playing with it. Oops! I got this ring in California when I went to go visit my best friend this summer. It was only $5 which I thought was a steal!

You can't really tell in this picture, but these shoes are a little worn out. I have seriously had them since like ninth grade and I still wear them. They are pretty much slippers which is the best thing ever. They also go with everything which is really nice.

I am hoping that my new camera comes in the mail tomorrow! I had to go buy two rolls of film which ended up costing me a whopping $16! Not to stoked about that. They were also out of negative sleeves which was also a problem. Looks like I am going to have to spend some time on Amazon this week trying to snag some good deals on camera stuff. My darkroom photography class is ending up costing me a fortune, but it somehow seems to remain my favorite class. Probably because it is an awesome skill to have. I hope I never forget how to do it, because I seriously just love it.

Well know I get to go to the good ol' job at the aftercare. I start to get my own group today so wish me luck!!

Weekly Song

Soo... I am having major issues trying to figure out how on earth you add a playlist to your blog! I tried using, but they had about three of the songs I was looking for. Fail! So if anyone has any clue how to do this (add it to a post, not auto play music for the blog) help would be much appreciated! Instead I will do a weekly song until I can figure this thing out.

The song I chose for this week I actually stumbled upon today while riding the bus. It is funny how I listen to my i pod almost every day, and still manage to find songs I have never heard before. I love it! It is a nice little surprise. The song I found is called "Where Do I Stand?" by As Tall As Lions. Not completely sure why I like this so much. Just do. Enjoy!

This Ones For The Long Run

Yay! So this is my third attempt at a blog, and I am crossing my fingers that I will stay motivated for this one. I didn't have the same inspiration that I do for this blog with the others. For the past year now I have been a little obsessed with blogs, especially fashion blogs. My main inspiration has been the blog of Elizabeth from Delightfully Tacky. I had never seen that kind of a blog before, and now my third (and hopefully final!) blog attempt will be that of a fashion/lifestyle blog!

I don't really know why I never thought of this before because it is so perfect. This is the place I want to document and share my inspiration. I love beautiful things, and I constantly keep an inspiration folder of all the things that inspire me. I hope that this can be a better way of letting me document my inspiration!

So...know what to talk about haha how about my weekend! This weekend was an absolute treat! For the first time in my life I went to the State Fair. It was quite the experience that I will willingly have again! Talk about fashion inspiration at that place! I tried my first exotic deep fried treat (deep fried cheesecake) while I watched a friend try a deep fried twinkie wrapped in bacon... I was not that adventurous! I am extremely bummed out because we ended up hitting a butt load of traffic so by the time we got there, the lighting for my Diana F+ was just not cutting it. Of course I didn't take another camera so all the glorious picture opportunities will have to wait until next year.

Well I think that is it for today. Yay my first post! How exciting :) I hope you all have a wonderful day, and help me stay motivated to stick this one out!
