Update on my so-called 'life'

I am not going to lie and say I have much of a life.. because I totally don't. In all honesty, I hang out with my parents and Andrew pretty much every night. But in case any of you are interested in what I have been up to, here ya go:

On Saturday my mama and I took my oldest niece, Kylie, out to lunch and shopping (well, actually mama took us both out to lunch and shopping, bless her heart!) How cute is my little Ky? She loves her some ribs. She just had to switch elementary schools which I know from experience can be really hard, so we were trying to get her mind off of school and let her have some fun. What girl doesn't love ribs and fall shopping? 

My smothered chicken was in the shape of a heart! You know Andrew got a quick pic text of that.
I know, I'm ridiculously corny. Stop judging. :)

 Okay ladies, try not to be too jealous.. but I get to call this man my boyfriend. Sexy, right? haha In his defense, we had just gotten back from a funeral and he forgot to bring a change of clothes so we had to scrape some up around my parents house.. needless to say, we didn't find him any shoes.
What a character.

In other news, I am pretty sure I want to be a ninja turtle for halloween. I have to dress up. It's one of the greatest 'holidays' ever. One thing I've never understood, WHY IN THE WORLD ARE ALL HALLOWEEN COSTUMES SO LITTLE!?! I get the whole 'one day to dress up like a skank' thing (I guess) but hello, it's normally freezing and most costumes don't look too cute with a cardigan! 
P.S. I mostly want this costume because of the turtle book bag and the awesome boot covers.

So random, but how cute is my little booters? Well his name is boots. Or booter head, booter monkey, boo boo, or whatever else comes to mind when I want him to love me. It's honestly amazing he answers to anything.

Random OOTD from last week. I bought this forever ago.. probably from Kohl's but I can't remember, sorry ladies!

Also, today I received an email UNCW (the college I attended) saying that since I had graduated they were deleting my email account. HOW. SAD. Can't I just have it forever? I don't think I am quite ready to give it up yet. Plus, what about all those people that have that email address and not my gmail account one? I could totally miss out on some valuable info. Gah, UNCW, way to stress a girl out.
Sike, I'm not really too stressed about it.. but I seriously don't get what the big deal it about keeping it.

On another note, I had an interview for an internship Friday and I got it. I should be happy, no? Well, I am happy. I am just still discouraged. I have already done one unpaid internship and this not getting paid thing is totally for the birds (whatever the heck that means). But, the ladies that work there seem really down to earth and fun to work with. I'd rather keep learning about my field and add to my resume then sit on my butt not working at all. Plus, I love the place so much (so far anyways, I mean I was only there for like 30 minutes, but hey, first impressions are important y'all!) that I am hoping it may end up being a full time PAID job in the future. Here's to hoping. Please pray for my job situation. This girl needs fall clothes, her own place, a new laptop, and some independence, among other things! Those things all cost mad money, which this girl has NONE of! 

So, it's Monday. Monday night football, Two and a Half Men, and How I Met Your Mother come on! Plus, mama's making country fried steak, DELISH! Speaking of which, what do you guys think of Two and a Half Men with Ashton Kutcher? I personally hope they get better. I thought Ashton would be able to pull the show together and make it just as hilarious but he's just whiny. Thank goodness for Berta and Allen. I still have faith that it's going to get better though. How I Met Your Mother is still on point. I am obsessed. Andrew's sister said she thought this was the final season. That makes me really sad if it's true but at the same time I think we can all agree that IT'S TIME TO FIND OUT WHO THE MOTHER OF THOSE DANG KIDS ARE! (Which could totally lead me to a Pretty Little Liars rant, but I will spare you...)

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday night and that you all had safe but fun weekends!


  1. i remember when my college informed me of my account being deleted. before they did, i had all of the mail forwarded to another email. so, to this day, i can still use my college edu account, it sends it to my msn account. :) might want to try and forward your emails.

  2. Well welcome to my life too. I hang out with my parents and my pets. On of off chance Ben comes into town I try and pack all the adventures in that I can. Adorable picture of your man, aren't those really the moments that you realize you love them :)

  3. I loved everything about my college, and I would've been crushed too about losing my email. :( Grad school maybe?? hehe

  4. Girl I am loving that flattering! Congrats on the intership too!

  5. I just found your blog and it seriously might be one of the cutest I've ever seen! I am your newest follower and look forward to reading more!!
