Question #4

Monday, October 29, 2012

This weekend was not a fun weekend.
I had some tough family stuff to deal with.
So, no weekend update today.
I wouldn't leave y'all with nothing so here is question #4

List 10 things you would tell your 16 year old self

I was looking at pictures of myself when i was 16
& all I can say is what was i thinking?!
honey, what are you doing!
1. Give your mom a break she loves you & is just trying to help. Instead of being a snotty teenager just respect her & learn to keep your mouth closed.
2. Speaking of keeping your mouth closed. Don't always try and get the last word & be a smart ass.
You don't know everything.
3. Don't always pick fights with your brother. Even though he is younger one day he will be taking care of you.
what is w/ that face?
4. You won't see half the people you go to high school with after graduation
5. Don't run up your cell phone bill. It will cost $500 & guess what you will have to start paying your  bill yourself. 
6. You are NOT a bad ass in your riviera honey
7. Do NOT I repeat NOT get your hair cut short! It will take years to grow back.
8. Don't change anything about yourself to impress a guy. BE YOURSELF.
9. Don't settle! 
10. Wear your retainer! If you don't your teeth will shift & the years of braces will be for nothing! 
Have y'all looked back at the 16 year old you
it is scary amazing to see how much you changed

Sunday Social-All about Halloween

Sunday, October 28, 2012

I can't believe Halloween is in just a couple days! October has gone by so fast!
I'm excited for cooler weather. Last week it was in the 80s & now this week it will be in the high 50s!
yay for sweater/boot weather

What was your favorite halloween costume as a kid?
I don't think i had a favorite costumer as a kid. My mom would usually pick my costume.
Although when i was a "pre-teen" I was a pop star & thought I was the bees knees 

If you could go back and dress up as something what would it be?
I would probably want to be a princess of some sort. Since I would never pick what I was for Halloween & since I was a kid I would assume I would want to be a princess!

Favorite costume as an adult?
I never really dress up anymore & If I do its very last minute and not very exciting

Favorite Halloween candy?
I'm loving those caramel apple suckers this year
so yummy

Favorite Halloween memory?
My great grandpa came over for Halloween one year & we went trick or treating and watched some football game & I remember we had to have the Tv up extremely loud because he couldn't hear. 
He passed away a couple years ago so I love remembering those memories

Whats your favorite scary movie?
I love all the Paranormal movies
To me they aren't that scary but still make me scream & jump out of my skin

The Nail Files

Friday, October 26, 2012

This post is late considering I usually have something posted some time in the morning
better late then never
Today I'm linking up with the nail files 

To be honest with you I haven't painted my nails all week
but thats because I didn't have to!
Earlier in the week (Monday) I used Revlon Spanish Moss 

It lasted all week! I noticed a little chipping on Wednesday but nothing major
I have been loving Revlon polishes. They last forever and have a great formula.
Today I used Revlon Dreamer

Love this baby blue color!

Hope y'all have a great weekend!
& don't forget to check out the Sip & Share Swap I'm hosting!
Last day to sign up is Next Wed


Worst Friend Memory

Thursday, October 25, 2012

Today I am so excited to be linking up with Katie for the 4th day of her Friendship link-up!
The topic today is
Worst Friend Memory

One of my best friends moved to California about 3 years ago now.
We were best friends & coworkers
She wanted to move to California & wanted me to move also.
At first I thought about it and was totally game.
Then the more & more I thought about it I decided it just wasn't the right time for me with school & such
She was bummed to say the least
She ended up moving and her now bf ended up moving with her instead of myself
After she moved I stopped talking to her
She would text me & call me but I just didn't see the point I was here & she was there
Looking back that was such a stupid reason not to talk to her
I did end up calling and apologizing but things will never be the same
I still love her to death & know there are no ill feelings but I feel horrible that I ended a great friendship over location
That experience has taught me so much. Never give up on a friendship just because of location.
Now some of the best friends I have are all over the state 
MI, FL, TN, WI, OH, etc

Question #3

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Describe your relationship with your parents

My mom is my best friend. Up until my senior year of high school we didn't get along to much though. 
I was a teenager who thought my mom was annoying and that I was independent and did not need her. 
I grew out of that though and now she is the closest person in my life. 
I don't know what I would do without her

My dad is one of the funniest people I know. 
I love him so much & want to find a husband that has the same amazing qualities my dad does.
My dad and I are very close and just like my mom I don't know what in the world I would do without him.
I love spending time with him and doing daddy/daughter stuff.

Needless to say my relationship with my parents is amazing. They are the best parents a girl could ask for.  

I am hosting a Sip & Share Swap  so make sure & check it out!! 


I'm participating in a group giveaway so don't miss out on that!


Weekend Update-"where's the beach?!"

Monday, October 22, 2012

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I'm sad it is over. 
My weekend wasn't much of a weekend. I had tons of homework due last night that I worked on all weekend. So it is only Monday and I already can't wait till Friday.
On a good note Taylor Swifts album Red came out today!
I will be listening to it on repeat all day.
Oh, and it feels like summer today it is 79 degrees in GA. 

I kinda had a bad week last week. I found out so did my sister.
So what did we do? 
We stayed in and had some frozen CPK pizza. Which is the BEST frozen pizza ever by the way.
& of course some Ben&Jerry's 
We watched Jersey shore-The episode where Snooki is hammered and can't find the beach will forever be my favorite. I laugh my ass off ever single time.
"Where's the beach?!"

 homework.homework.&more homework
I took a little break though & went to lunch with my sister & we went to Walmart
Y'all I swear every single time I go anywhere that sells nail polish I get at least one.
It's a sickness.
I picked up Revlon Spanish Moss
I am in love.

I was so excited because my mom really wanted to got Charming Charlie & I really wanted to go to
Well we went and let me tell you it was a huge dissapointment.
Every time I go I always get so many accessories.
This time they didn't have anything. 
sad face
We made up for it and got cotton candy dip n dots though 

Sip & Share Swap!

I have been loving swaps lately so I thought why not host one of my own?!
I then asked my bloggy friend Coley to host it with me! 

We wanted to do something a little different then nail polish or make up & wanted it to be a little more personal.
Since colder months are on there way we decided to do a mug swap & any other coffee/tea goodies you want to add. 
Thats not it though! We wanted to make it a little more personal and add something written to share. 
(note, quote, recipe)
something that can be read

I haven't linked up with Lauren over at From My Grey Desk in a couple weeks
I had a crazy week so I thought I'd share with you the little things that got me through it!


1. I had a 2 day work week. Only because I was sick, but hey at least it was a day off right?!

2. I received my first Ipsy bag this week. I am so glad I decided to get it. I love it & it was chevron & had 2 full size samples. Heck yes!

3. I won my first giveaway this week from Coley & couldn't be more excited! 

4. Speaking of Coley, we are planning a little surprise so make sure and check back Monday!

5. My sister also had a day off this week so we had a fun sister day! 
I hope y'all had a great week! Make sure and stop by on Monday to see what Coley and I have been working on! 

Question #2

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Describe 3 legitimate fears you have & explain how they became fears.

Being alone forever.
Now I know I am only 22 and shouldn't worry about it but it's something that crosses my mind and it scares me. I don't want to end up being the crazy cat or in my case dog lady. 
I am kind of picky because my parents have set a great example of what a marriage should be like.
I've also seen from 3 of my aunts what a ugly divorce is like & I want to find someone who I know and he knows that no matter what we will be together forever. 
Getting robbed
My neighbors have gotten robbed & ever since then I have been terrified of getting robbed to.
Whenever I am home alone I make sure all the doors are locked & whenever my dogs barks at something I will immediately go and make sure it's not someone trying to break in.
Hospitals just freak me out. I don't know why I ever became afraid of them but they scare me.
A couple months ago I was having a hard time breathing and my mom wanted to take me to the hospital. I had a full on panic attack as soon as she said hospital. I did not want to go.
Is anyone else afraid of these things?

These costumes are way better then what I have been.
In the past years I have been a zebra, lion, little ms. piggy, & a pop star 
Why my mom liked dressing me up as a animal I will never know. 

What have some of your costumes been?

Fall Bucket List

Monday, October 15, 2012

Happy or Not so Happy Monday!
Today I am sharing my Fall Bucket List with you

Carve Pumpkins- I have already painted/decorated a pumpkin this year. I still want to carve one though! Will probably do this a little bit closer to Halloween!
I always say I wanna carve a pumpkin but then it turns out crappy. This year I'm determined to take my time and make it look good!
pumpkin I decorated
Have a bonfire- We have a fire pit in my backyard & never use it. I don't know why because it is so nice but no one ever uses it. I WILL have a bonfire this year!
Make a pie- I don't think I have ever made a pie. This year I want to make an apple or pumpkin pie. I think I will be doing this today with my mom!
Go to a football game- This is on my list every single year and guess what I never go to one. Hopefully this year I can go to Athens and see the dawgs play!
Learn/Try to knit a scarf- Last winter my Grandma & Aunt tried teaching me to knit. I want to try to knit a cute scarf for the Winter! I tried last year and it was a big fat fail.
Have a Fall Photo Shoot- 2 years ago my sister and some of our friends went to a bunch of different places and took a ton of pictures. They are my all time favorite pictures & I wanna do it again this year!
It's so much fun to jump in a pile of leaves and to take pictures with all the pretty colors.
What's on your bucket list this Fall?
