Gilmore Girls

I love this show! I'm late on the Gilmore Girls' bus. But I've been watching the DVDs. And this is such a great show. Quirky. Weird. But funny! I don't care what anyone says. I really enjoy watching this show. That's what I've been doing lately. You know, I have lots of hours to entertain myself. I sorta miss working. So I have to find other things to fill up my days... XOXO

Pizza Rolls

Let me be honest here. I grew up all foods frozen and fast food. It wasn't a good thing either. But these little babes, they were my favs! I ate a few boxes a week. See, I'm admitting it. OK, so before my mom started dating my step dad, I probably ate 3 boxes a week. They were my go-to after school snack. So yummy!

Pizza rolls are still my favorite snack. I really wish that I could find a way to make some healthier version. Because it's about time I start caring about these things. But seriously, just the box makes me smile. :) XOXO

Healthy Hair Curling

I really like this video. Because this girl reminds me a lot of my bestie. And she has fun ideas. I'm not very good at the whole hair and makeup glam thing. So I like these tips. Even if my hair is short. Maybe this will work. It can't hurt to try. Right? I just don't know if my hair will stay pinned. But I'm going to try this out. Probably when T is working. So he doesn't think I'm a freak! XOXO

Eyelash Curlers

I'm deathly afraid of these little guys. And I don't know why! I used to use eyelash curlers when I was like 10 years old. What the heck is wrong with me? But now, when I use them, I feel like I'm going to pull out all of my eyelashes. So I avoid them like the plague!

I don't mind if my bestie uses one on me. It's like I trust her abilities more than my own. Weird, I know! But it's the truth. Am I the only one that has these crazy thoughts about eyelash curlers? XOXO

I'm Learning

My new life, it includes lots of things. Starting with the work week. Mondays, those are T's days off. Days to do nothing at all. Completely free of work and responsibilities. AKA Most people's Sundays.

Tuesdays, he works. That's a very important day. He goes to work. I don't know exactly what goes on. But I'm assuming it's like "regular work." The stuff that you and me are used to.

Thursdays are travel days. Nothing too interesting. Just traveling. Then the guys work all weekend. I can pretty much assume that I need to entertain myself all day Friday, Saturday mornings and night, and a good part of Sunday. But it's not that bad.

You see, we still spend lots of time together. And we travel all over the place. It really isn't that bad. Don't feel bad for me. Because it's pretty fun. :)

And the wives/girlfriends...they're funny! My bestie hasn't gotten into that scene. She's just a loner. And her guy is always busy. So they try to get all of their work done at the same time. So when he is off, they can just hangout. And well, they're keeping things on the DL...

The rest of the women around here. Well, they are like professional shoppers. No lie! That's all they do. Shop. Until they drop. And exercise. It's crazy! I don't know if I will ever fit in. But I'm trying. And failing miserably! But it's OK. T and I crack up about some of these antics. It's just so different from the life I was living 2 months ago. XOXO

September 11th

It's crazy how quickly our lives changed 7 years ago. It was scary. I was supposed to be on a flight to NYC later that day. Because the earlier flight didn't have enough room room me and my friends. We had already booked everything. Rooms, various things to do, place to be. We were supposed to fly out early in the morning. And be at the WTC to look around. But 2 days before, it changed. And our flights were changed. But we were still going to spend some time in NYC. Just having some fun. Being young and free.

But all of that was shattered. All of our plans. Our security. Our youth. And our world. It was sad and scary. Something that I will never forget. As long as I live.

It's weird when I think about that day. I just keep thinking to myself, I could have been there. inside the World Trade Center. Looking around. But God had other plans for me. And I wasn't there.

It still doesn't numb the pain. And the overwhelming feelings that come on this somber anniversary. So many lives were lost. So many children will never know their parents. It was the day our world was shattered. But instead of being sad, lonely, and scared, I'm going to celebrate those lives. And live he best life I can. Because it could have been me. XOXO

Where Would You Be

I just love this song. It's funny. I used to listen to a lot of country music when I was little. Then I stopped. I don't know why. My mom just went in a different direction in her life. Now that I'm here, we listen to a lot of it. Mostly because of my bestie and her guy. And I'm really starting to fall back in love with it. Martina sounds like an angel. And this song is perfect! XOXO

I have this to say, I suck at makeup! And I've been playing with it since I was in elementary. I used to be better than my bestie. I don't know what happened. Oh ya, I went all natural. I stopped really caring too much about makeup when we moved. And my bestie wasn't here.

We used to go to the mall, or even Wally World to buy makeup. She was always a lot less daring. Going for brown eyeshadows and pink lipsticks. While I liked green mascara and fake eyelashes.

Now, it's all I can do to find a foundation that matches my skin. Manage some sort of gloss. And maybe, add some brown mascara. What happened? Maybe I should try this out again. Who knows, I might shock myself. XOXO

I'm just women really have this much makeup? I can't believe it! I'm lucky to have enough to fit into my old Caboodle. Yes, I said Caboodle. I have a small makeup bag that I take with me when we travel. That's it! I'm just in shock. I love to watch Emily's videos. But really...this much makeup? XOXO

Labor Day

Yesterday turned into a whole lot of fun! We went out to the lake. Met a bunch of friends. And had a blast! What more could you ask for? There was sun, water, boats, food, drinks, and lots of friends!

It's crazy how quickly I'm adjusting to this life. And these people. Making lots of friends. And learning all the tricks. I'm glad. Because I'm really in love with T. It makes it a lot easier that his friends are quickly becoming my friends.

It also doesn't hurt that my bestie is dating T's good friend too! It's like all the stars have lined up. And I'm super excited about it. :)

Now, I need to figure out how to make this sunburn hurt less. And I should probably take a nap. I'm exhausted! A day of realxing has a way of doing that to a gal. XOXO
