Day {TEN} Thanksgiving memories

The most recent (and funniest) is last year's Thanksgiving.

My little sister and I were determined to make Thanksgiving dinner by ourselves.

We went out, got the turkey and all the ingredients for the yummy sides and pies too.

We already prepared ourselves for that morning, knowing it would be a stressful one, by having a couple of bottles of wine on hand. Some may have said this was a big mistake. ;)

Our first attempt at Thanksgiving dinner saw many spills, forgotten ingredients which resulted in a quick run to the store, and lessons learned in making pumpkin pie.

By the time we sat down to eat, I had already had WAY too much wine. I was what you may call drunk by then. I knocked over the salt, needed a nap, and started laughing mid-prayer. Oops!

All in all though, it was successful because it was yummy, we were together as a family, and it's a great memory to remember. My family now has a funny story to tell because they still haven't let me live that one down! ;)

Please share your favorite Thanksgiving memory with us by linking up with us!

Its Ok Thursdays

It's OK..

..to feel your best when your apartment is clean

..to consider a kid's birthday party the best form of birth control

..to have an online cart full of stuff that you haven't clicked "check out" on yet

..to feel like your recent re-enrollment to ebay is going to get you in some trouble

..to have the urge to bake something, almost every night

..to wait until the last minute to do a school project

..to get overly excited about a package in the mail because you had forgotten about it

..to wash your hands more than normal to try and finish off your current soap so you can put out the fall scented one :)

..to have a certain number of things on my list each week #ocdmuch?

..to try and con your boyfriend into doing something he doesn't particularly feel like doing because, "but babe, it's going to be our anniversary weekend"

..to be happy you don't live in the tiny town you grew up in anymore

..to save new clothes for a certain occasion

..to feel relieved when your posts are typed up a week in advance so that you can focus more on homework in the evenings

..to have some of your favorite blogs URLs memorized

..to flip out when your phone dies.. whatever will I do without my constant twitter updates?!

Day {NINE} Favorite football pastimes

Well, I'm not HUGE into football watching, mainly because I don't understand all of the rules and it annoys me to not know what's going on. ;)

Nate never misses a Tech game though, so I'm always watching those with him. It's so fun watching him get into it. He's so passionate about it, and I love watching him get all riled up about it.

We occasionally will have watch parties with friends, and that's always a blast of course! Football, food and friends? What more could you want?!





How do y'all show your football spirit?

Day {EIGHT} Fall travel/road trips

This year I'm very excited for a road trip we'll be taking. We're going to make the trip to Lubbock for a football game! I can't wait. :)

Since I started dating Nate, we don't miss a televised game. We haven't been to an actual game together though, so it'll be so much fun!

Us at the Tech/Baylor game at Cowboys Stadium

In fall of '09 we took a road trip to Kentucky to attend my aunt's wedding. It was our first road trip together, so it was a blast.



Where are you guys going this year?

Day {SIX} Fall TV Shows (new or returning)


Hands down, GREY'S ANATOMY is the main thing I'm excited about being back on TV. It's my faaave show & I live for watching it. Dramatic, much? ;)


I'm also excited about some shows that Nate & I both enjoy that he'll DVR at his place so I can watch at a later time. :)

We love Modern Family, hilarious!


Also, Nate got me hooked on The League last year. I totally thought I was going to hate it, but it is seriously hysterical!


I would be excited about The Office too, but since Michael Scott is gone.. I'm not as interested anymore. It just won't be the same. Sad day :(

Day {THREE} What do you do for Halloween/a Halloween memory

I LOVE dressing up for Halloween, but I haven't the past 2 years. I've been trying to talk Nate into dressing up with me.. so we'll see this year.

If I dress up, I usually go to a Halloween party or out somewhere so I can show off my costume.

2008 - Bumblebee

2006 - Oompa Loompa

It's hard to see.. but I was a cop.

Cute, colorful and cozy socks..

My daddy and myself wearing one of my fave scarves.

As for my makeup, not much changes. I'm very low maintenance when it comes to my face. I may add a few darker eyeshadows in the mix, but that's about it besides my normal mascara and eyeliner.

Its Ok Thursdays

It's OK..

..to already be planning what you're going to write in your Erin Condren planner

..to get a little bored in your Spanish class because it's basically a review of what you had forgotten from high school

..to clean out the receipts from your purse before you do a "what's in my bag?" post ;) oops, secret's out!

..to have serious anxiety over being able to balance school, work, homework, reading for fun, having a social life and blogging

..to wanna smack your co-workers who say they don't have "time" to help you when all they do is sit on their ass and file their nails while you have zero time to sit down during the day

..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?
