..to take showers at night during the week so that you'll have an extra 15 minutes of sleep in the morning

..to jump on the bandwagon when you see bloggers post about awesome purchases

..to really want to have guest posters on the blog (never done it before) but have no reason to do it at the moment

..to feel totally out of the loop because you can't check twitter much while you're at work

..to stop at Sonic for a Coke Zero on your way to class

..to wonder what in the world people were thinking when they woke up and dressed themselves that morning

..to search for recipes that you already have the ingredients for so that you don't have to go to the grocery store

..to feel sad when you see a giveaway for something that you already own

..to feel like you hit the lottery when you win a giveaway

..to be totally drained by the end of the week that you crash by 10 or 11 on Friday nights

The "Forgiven" List

Nate and I have our "lists" of celebrities who we'd have relations with if given the opportunity. ;)

If said opportunities were ever to arise, we'd automatically forgive one another because the celebrity is on our "list".

Well, Nate said he'd forgive me if I got a chunk of change before leaving the sack. HA!

On my list, I have many gorgeous, knock my socks off men. But just to name a few..

Woody Harrelson - don't judge me! He just does something for me that I can't explain!

Ryan Gosling - obvious reasons that I don't even have to explain!

Bradley Cooper - I can handle a man with a cocky attitude..

Now that you're all DROOLING..

Nate's got some pretty cute girls on his list, I guess! ;)

Malin Akerman - I like that she seems sweet & down to earth, and I hate her for being able to pull off any hair color she wants!

Olivia Wilde - Maxim's Hottest Woman which is clearly why he's obsessed with her. Oh, and he likes her in House too.

Anne Hathaway - he likes that she's not all made up, she looks like a natural, girl next door type.

Pretty reasonable, yes?

Do you and your significant other have similar lists?

What's in my bag?

I've seen a few other bloggers do this post, and it looked like fun, so of course I jumped on the bandwagon. ;)

Luckily I remembered.. I sat down to write & thought to myself, "Oh man, I've been thinking of blog post ideas all day and I totally forgot them all!" Typical ;)

Anyway!

Wanna see what's in my bag?!


I LOVE this purse. I've been carrying it since almost May when I decided that my black Poppy just wasn't cutting it for the Spring/Summer. Now that it's almost fall again, I have another excuse to buy a new handbag. ;)

Sneak Peak: Ooooh so many goodies!

What do we have here?
-A coupon holder
-My wallet
-My savings account slips
-A mini manicure set
-Gussy sews pouch
-Mini pouch
-Makeup bag
-Gum
-Floss
-Camera
-Deodorant
-Keys

In my fave Victoria's Secret makeup bag, I have:

Maybelline powder, Colossal Volume mascara, NYC lip gloss, MAC eyeliner, NARS blush, Covergirl eyeshadow, Clinique moisturizer and of course, an eyelash curler

My little mini mani set, which I'm sure you all knew what was inside there..
My Bath & Body Works mini pouch carries my travel lotion, travel perfume, Burt's Bees and antibiotic ointment.
My Gussy Sews pouch carries my tampons. Can't let them float around my purse! ;)

So there ya have it!

Celebrity Couples - yay or nay?

While at dinner with one of my best friends, the topic came up of celebrity couples that we don't like together, (and vice versa).

This conversation started when I asked if she had heard that Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes were together.

Yes, I couldn't believe it either people.

Exhibit A:
This is a couple I don't like together. Yep, I said it. I'm not Eva Mendes' biggest fan, and she may only be 6 years older than him, but she looks a lot older than that to me. He's gorgeous, he should probably be with me anyway. ;)

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie
I'm sorry but Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston looked WAY better together. I was a fan of Angelina's until this whole shabang went down. TEAM ANISTON!

Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony
Yes, I know they are getting a divorce, and maybe that's good because they just don't fit well together. He seems way too laid back for her, and they aren't even cute together.

Faith Hill & Tim McGraw
Even if you don't listen to country music, you know who this couple is and they are ADORABLE! They seem like such a genuinely sweet couple & are perfect together.

Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner
Are they not precious?! I know, I think so too. Love them. I love that the girl next door got the hottie.

Ryan Phillippe & Reese Witherspoon
I know they have been over for years now, but I loved them together. They're both so beautiful (Reese is my fave!) and let's face it - they make gorgeous children.

Hump Day LOVIN'


I'm LOVING.. sweet friends who invite me over for dinner when they are grilling.

I'm LOVING.. that I got my Gussy kindle case in the mail yesterday along with a discount code.


Speaking of Gussy, I'm LOVING.. now that school in back in session I think that I have the perfect excuse to order a tote. ;) I think this one will be the winner!


I'm LOVING.. that my mama is back in the great state of Texas. I can't wait to have her here to help her celebrate her birthday next week.

I'm LOVING.. my classes this semester. I actually don't horribly dread doing my homework. ;)

I'm LOVING.. that it's finally NOT 100 degrees outside. I actually had the windows down in my car for the first time in I don't know how long!

I'm LOVING.. these ladies. They rock my rainbow colored, glittery socks off.


I'm LOVING.. expecting some money back from the school. Cha-ching! ;)

I'm LOVING.. that this is a short work week. Work has gotten SO exhausting lately (transferring paper charts over to EMR) and it's only going to get busier with flu season right around the corner.

What are you guys LOVING today? Besides me, of course. ;)

I got my hurr did!

Okay, so remember when you guys read my post where I asked for your opinions on how I should do my hair?! Well, this past Saturday, I went and got it done. I was very excited for a change, but nothing too drastic of course. I don't do well with MAJOR change. ;)Okay, so from the previous post, you guys saw that my hair was to the top of my pants..


Well, when I went to get it cut, I asked her how many inches it would take off if I just cut the dead ends.. she said about 3 inches. (embarrassing, I know.. I haven't had my hair trimmed in a while), so I told her to take off a couple more inches. So, in all she took almost 6 inches off.My hair now only comes to my bra strap in the middle of my back.


It may not seem like a lot, but it feels like a lot. My ponytail is so much shorter now, but I will say that it's not as "noodle-like" when in a pony, so that's good news. :)She also added some side bangs, since my hair had completely grown out and I had no more bangs at all.


This was right after I got it done. She even styled it with a big barrel curling iron.. to not so much give me curl, but to give my hair more bounce and volume. I'm sold, and will definitely be buying a curling iron for that purpose!I also went darker, and I LOVE it. I've always loved having my hair dark, and with fall around the corner, it's perfect!


And just for fun..


I always take the obligatory waiting time picture. Hey, it's boring sitting for 45 minutes ;)

What's the biggest change that you've ever made to your hair recently?
