Happy Turkey Day!

Even though it was yesterday. I was spending the day with my super amazing family since I haven’t seen them all together since Easter. We had a great time though, and no one died, which is always a plus. I think it helped that my mom and I drank pretty consistently, we never got drunk but we were always almost buzzed. Did you know whipped cream vodka is delicious in gingerbread lattes from Starbucks? Yeah, me either until yesterday. After we ate I went back to the hotel with them and then my mom and I ditched the boys to go to the bar to see what kind of losers are there on Thanksgiving. Mostly my friends. She only had one beer with me and then went back to the room. I had four and then stumbled back. At midnight we decided to go to Walmart. Well, see, my parents are small town folk. They love living in the country. Walmart on Black Friday in the city is just not their cup of tea. They were literally rioting over vacuum cleaners. VACUUM CLEANERS. Who the fuck needs a vacuum cleaner that badly? We were actually in and out of there in about 45 minutes though and no one sustained any major injuries thank God. They headed back home today after we all woke up though and I was sad to see them go. Hopefully I get to see them on Christmas and it won’t be another 7 months.

I love getting packages!

I just got the Stila Road to Radiance Palate in the mail today. For $10 and free shipping from http://www.zappos.com/product/7674221/color/248126 for four eyeshadows and a convertible color, I couldn’t beat it. Especially since I’m broke and have a horrible shopping habit. The colors are all pink tones and can easily be worn together. I just checked out their website and Paris just came out. Can you guess what my next purchase will be?

SATC 2- My Thoughts

Well since I’m a girl after Carrie Bradshaw’s heart I figured I would share my thoughts on the new movie. I haven’t read any of the reviews because I wanted to see it for myself before I considered someone else’s opinion. I liked the movie and the plot in general but there was something off and contrived about it. The product placement throughout was ridiculous. Rolex, Trojan, Apple (which is more ok than the rest since Carrie has always been a Mac user but this time it was Charlotte’s iPhone), and others were splashed all over the movie. The clothes were fabulous as always, but too much. I don’t sit on my couch in an evening gown, so why should it be believable that Carrie does? In general I think the first movie was much better. Because of the success of the first one though every brand in the world was chomping at the bit to get into this one. There were definitely some very funny parts (Liza doing Single Ladies anyone?) that had me cracking up. But there were also parts meant to be funny that just weren’t. The girls also looked so old and worn out. Well except Samantha and her various hormone replacement therapies. I feel like there has to be another movie in the future because there were still a lot of unanswered questions. With the first movie they wrapped everything up by the end but not with this one. I still think something is going to happen with Samantha and Smith Jared, Carrie has way too many past loves for Aiden to be the only one that pops up, I think Miranda and Steve are going to have another baby now that she’s gotten a better job, and Charlotte is just going to go crazy from trying to be too perfect. ¬†Oh, and I think Carrie and Big will have kids. It came up way to much during the movie for something to not happen from it.

Secret Single Behavior

There are a lot of people out there who would kill to have a significant other. Just look at the personals section on Craigslist. I would be ok with having a boyfriend but then I would have to give up my “Secret Single Behavior”. I made a little list of things I couldn’t do if I had a boyfriend. What are some of yours?

  • Go a while without shaving. It’s such a pain in the ass.
  • Have the whole bed to myself.
  • I would probably have to give up the insomnia just because I assume my significant other would like more than a couple hours of sleep.
  • Have “alone time” with myself.
  • Wear sweat pants all the time.
  • Have all the covers. And all the pillows. (All 6 of them)
  • Decorate in pink.
  • Continue my abnormal obsession with Ikea.
  • Watch trashy reality TV. Gotta love the Housewives and Jersey Shore.

If I think of anymore I’ll add them, feel free to spill the beans!

Twenty Things.

1. I generally like animals more than people.

2. I used to have to sneak shoes I bought past my mom because she forbade me to buy any more.

3. I am a gigantic pothead, I love weed more than alcohol.

4. I still love alcohol though.

5. I could make more money at a different job but I like it, even if some days I claim to hate it.

6. I can cook really, really well.

7. I’m trying to write a novel.

8. I’m pretty much a total nympho but I haven’t gotten much lately.

9. Country music is my favorite. I love any song that tells a story though.

10. I’m in love with two different people for two different reasons.

11. I love hot weather but have to be cold to sleep.

12. I can decorate the shit out of any space.

13. I never know whether to say it’s a disease or a condition. Either way, fuck fibro.

14. My biggest regret is that I couldn’t pass bootcamp and be in the Navy right now.

15. Every plant I buy or plant ends up dying. I’ve never had a green thumb.

16. The best compliment I’ve ever gotten was “You look just like Audrey Hepburn!” She probably doesn’t remember me but I will always remember her.

17. Probably the most fun I’ve had with my mom was the afternoon at the nude beach in St. Maarten.

18. I own more LSU paraphernalia than any other brand of clothing. I even have a LSU Snuggie.

19. I don’t have cable, but I do have a lot of movies.

20. I like watching shit blow up more than the average girl, I hate wrecking cars in NASCAR though.

Navy Boy FTW (for right now anyways…)

Two nights ago he told me he was still wrapped around my little finger. Last night he told me he would pay for half my airplane ticket to come see him. Somewhere inside of me I know he’s the wrong one for me. Or maybe he is the perfect one. He has spent so much more time with me than Engineer Boy and knows me so much better. Hell, he dated me when I came out of the worst relationship I’ve ever been in. I was watching a show last night and it summed it up perfectly, you know when you look into someone’s eyes and they just hook you? That’s love. And that’s what happened with us. Also, he gave me a really good discount on my oil change. I’m supposed to go see Engineer Boy when he’s home from college this month. We will see how that goes versus how I feel about Navy Boy. On a less serious note, I’m going bathing suit shopping today. Granted, it’s only at Walmart, but I love all their new stuff. Plus, I haven’t had a Miley Cyrus line fix in a while. I’m long overdue for something purple, black, or white.

Is there AA for buying shoes?

I got my state tax return today, so I did what any irresponsible person would do, pretended it never existed and shopped. The best friend and I indulged in some much needed girl time and shopped our way around our favorite town. After we lost our hangovers and woke up. Last night we had the biggest party we’ve had at our new apartment yet and I got HAMMERED. I seriously haven’t been that drunk since I stumbled my away around St. Maarten. And that’s the day I went to the nude beach with my mom. The last thing I remember about last night was taking one shot of sour apple Burnette’s. I apparently took two. And then fell. I woke up this morning still drunk and when I looked down still clothed. My roommate dropped me into bed, pulled the covers up to my knees, and threw the dogs in with me. So as you can tell, in order to fully recover, shopping was needed. I bought two pairs of pink wedges, but they’re totally different, I swear, and two pairs of flip flops. One pair is Patron and one pair is Corona. And while both are alcohol, both are completely different. I got a pair of Rock and Republic jeans for $38. I got a pair of Citizens of Humanity for $21. I also got a bunch of tops, but none are so exciting that I have to share. And now, I have to go hang all this shit up.
