Dr. Seuss

"I learned there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead, others come from behind.
But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready, you see.
Now my troubles are going to have trouble with me."
Dr. Seuss

A little Nostalgia never hurt anyone...

Sometimes I find myself feeling nostalgic for college. I’m reminded of 3am dance parties, cumby’s runs, Bitch Wine, RHONY marathons and visits to La Grapa. But there comes a time when we need to move on from college and grow up. Take the next step and move towards a future free of cheap beer, fighting for a cab and awkward Sunday mornings in the caf.

There also comes a time, when reliving these memories becomes necessary…

Saturday was one of those times.

Ask anyone and they will tell you that I rarely go out. I’m more comfortable in smaller groups…where my awkwardness can be fully appreciated, but I really missed people and with a little nudging from CM and the gang, I made my way to the party.

Saturday was the birthday of a fellow FU graduate that essentially became a, “OMG, what have you been doing since graduation...are you employed?...they’re STILL dating...PULL yourself together, type of night.”

So in honor of Saturday I would like to play count by numbers...

Hugs- 23
Drinks consumed- ???
Pieces of gum given to the DJ as a bribe to play Bad Romance- 1
Party crashers-1
Lady Gaga Songs- 3
Phallic necklaces-1
Tears shed- 2
Pictures taken- 50…ish
Glasses dropped-4
Moments of uncontrollable laughter-5
Altercations with Facebook friends you’ve never actually met…1
Time spent telling your friends how much you miss them…countless

To everyone who I saw on Saturday…I missed you.

Happy Tuesday!

Waffles for Dessert...Yes Please!

After sharing a delish meal with RJ, KR and JB last night at Waterzooi in GC we decided to order dessert. After contemplating what to get for about .5 seconds I ordered the Waffle with Strawberries.

This is what came to the table...


Warm and crispy on the outside, light and buttery on the inside. Topped with Fresh whipped cream and sweet perfection.

If you are ever in GC, you have to visit Waterzooi!

Once the photos are up from the second part of my Saturday I will do a little post. It was a college reunion of sorts.

I was having a weak moment....

And I impulse purchased this jumper...

I swear it's really cute on and when I wear it tomorrow, I will take pics and post them.

Hope you are all having a great Friday...Happy Weekend!

UPDATE: THE JUMPER FELL APART AT THE BAR!!!! I will post pics because it was super cute as soon as CM uploads them, but I will be returning to Intermix today to complain. I am sooooo upset. All of the buttons started coming off!!!

Michael Buble is my Celeb Crush...

I think this song is absolutely adorable...almost as adorable as Michael Buble...

"LOVE... We think about it, sing about it, dream about it, lose sleep worrying about it. When we don't have it, we search for it; when we discover it, we don't know what to do with it; when we have it, we fear losing it. It is the constant source of pleasure and pain. But we can't predict which it will be from one moment to the next. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define, impossible to live without. "

“One of these days you're going to need to get yourself a real who isn't your father”

Here is the thing…my life used to be somewhat amusing. I had fun stories about encounters with homeless men, tumbling down subway steps and the occasional awkward High School run-in.

HOWEVER, my life has gotten WAY less interesting these past few weeks. Sure, I went on a blind date…terrifying...of course. I met a boy at a bar who insisted I meet him at the nearest Taco Bell so we could hook up and I even danced with tranny (this is debatable, but I like to think it was a tranny) at a bar in the city. While this was all fun, I am still waiting for it. MY BIG AHA moment as Oprah calls them.

My freelance gig is currently up and for the past week, I’ve been sitting at home watching re-runs of CSI and searching for jobs instead of hanging with MK and A. It’s a definite downgrade in my mind, but I’ve had the time to try spinning and experiment with some new hairstyles…I’ve learned I resemble Ke$ha when I don’t blow dry my hair.

While my life has turned into a pathetic example of what happens when you don’t pick a practical major in college (I have a degree in English), I’m still somewhat happy. UNTIL, I turn on my television and see commercials for Valentines Day. To quote my mother, “One of these days you're going to need to get yourself a real who isn't your father”.

So…if you would like to be my Valentine...I would love that.

Happy Friday!!!

"All that I know"

"We've gotten this far
Again and again.
Well, you know how this starts
But tell me how do you want this to end?"

Pixie Lott

A few months ago I posted about one of my favorite artists. Her name is Pixie Lott and she has a new single. I'm loving "Gravity" and I thought I would share it with you!

Spinning = the devil

ML and I hit up the gym this morning for a class...spinning is by far the hardest workout I have done in a LONG time. I'm not sure how walking up and down the stairs is going to go tomorrow considering I am already sore. The music was fantastic and the instructor was so motivational.

I kindaaaaa loved it. If I can move tomorrow, I might go back and do it again.

Mint Candy

This is the polish referenced in my previous post. It's Essie's Mint Candy Apple. I'm loving it!


MK, Ashley and LC OH MY!!!!

Happy Sunday everyone!

For all of you who asked...MK and A were phenomenal. They were the sweetest and most pulled together 23 year old girls I have ever met. I'm rarely starstruck when I meet the celebs, but I do have to say hugging MK goodbye was pretty awesome...and chatting with Lauren Conrad over my new nail polish color was pretty sweet as well. They are just really chill girls. However, it made me feel slightly unaccomplished.

Lauren, Mary-Kate and Ashley are all within my age range (i'm 22) and I have not accomplished half of the stuff they have. It made me think of all the things I want to do before I turn 23 in September. My current plan is to compile a list of things I want/want to do before the birthday rolls around. I will get back to you when it's complete.

For now, I will leave you with some new songs from everyone's fav new trainwreck Ke$ha...

It's just me and the Olsen twins'm serious

For many of you, my brief hiatus from blogging went unnoticed. However, there are a few of you who have started harassing me to blog again. MS and's been noted that you appreciate the blog. This post goes out to you lovely ladies...

My life has been crazy lately...I will fill everyone in on this later, but for now, this post is VERY important.

Tomorrow marks a milestone in my life.

NO, It's not my birthday and NO, I'm still single if that's what you were thinking...

Tomorrow I get to meet someone who changed my childhood. She (they) influenced much of my fashion choices and hairstyles and provided me with HOURS of fabulous television.

Tomorrow I get to meet Michelle Tanner or Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen as they are called in real life. I'm pretty sure I might just call them both Michelle tomorrow. I mean, why not? Get over it much as you like to pretend you are all "sophisticated" and "cultured", you will ALWAYS be The Olsen Twins and I will ALWAYS adore you.

Do you think that bringing my copy of the "The case of Thorn Mansion" or my audio cassette of "Brother for Sale" to have signed tomorrow would be inapprops?

I mean maybe they would find it offensive if I called them the Trench Coat Twins, or asked how Uncle Jesse was?

Whatev's I don't care. I cant wait! I will be humming the Full House theme song all morning.


Ashley Olse...I mean just Ashley
