30 Days Of Thankful Challenge: Part 3

And, here's part 3!

21. a disappointment or fear
I'm  sorry, but this one seems kinda weird to me...How can you be thankful for a fear or disappointment?
Maybe after I read Amy's I'll get an idea of what this one should mean?

22. a book
The Alice series by Phyllis Reynold Naylor
 Their a really good series of books, and they really turned me on to reading.
 
23. a feeling
Ok, so I'm going with this meaning a 'physical' feeling instead of an 'emotional' feeling, so...
I know this is probably weird...But, I feeling of being cuddled/cuddling something. Maybe that's why I love hugs, and I sleep cuddled up to a body pillow?

24. a photograph
This one...
My grandma, my big brothers, and I at Disney World.

25. a luxury
I'm so thankful for warm water and electricity!
It's a big pain in the butt when you don't have it!
 
26. a charity
 I don't know...I've never really thought about that before....I guess I'd say The Salvation Army or Toys For Tots. :)

27. a song
I'm thankful for all music, really. (I'm a total music nut! I love music!)

28. a gift
I know I've already said I was thankful for my camera...But I'm going to say it again.
Because, it was a gift that my dad got me, and I love it! :)

29. something in your home
My parents bed.
It's where we all gather in the mornings on the weekend, it's where we all try to pile in the bed to watch tv, or anything like that.
 
30. the thing you’re most thankful for
My family and friends. 
Their everything to me, and I would do anything for them.

And with that, we have came to the end of the '30 days of thankful' challenge!

I hope y'all have a Happy Thanksgiving! :)

30 Days Of Thankful Challenge: Part 2

So, here's part 2


11. a tradition

Every Christmas morning, my brother and I get up at six in the morning, then go wake up my mom and dad. 
It's something we did ever since I was little.

12. a gadget

My camera.
I think that one is pretty self explanatory...
13. something old
 My animal blanket...
I've had it since I was a baby.

14. something new
 Ok, my room isn't really 'new' but, it's been redone, so it counts! lol

15. a recipe
My Maw's Chicken and Dumplings, and My Nanny's Potato Salad.
Two of my favorite things...Their so yummy! But, no one makes it like they do.

16. an experience
Getting my drivers license.
That was a big thing for me, and I'm thankful I passed the test and got it!

17. a store
I love Target. It's one of my favorite stores. 

18. a saying/quote/scripture
 This is one of my favorites...
"You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it."-Benjamin Mee

19. a favorite piece of clothing
 Right now....My cowgirl boots.
I also love scarfs. :)
20. a keepsake
My Precious Moment. 
I've had her since I was a baby, and I love it.
I plan to pass it down to my daughter some day. (If I ever have one.)

30 Day's Of Thankful Challenge: Part 1

So, Amy started a "30 Days Of Thankful Challenge".....And, I decided to try it....Let's see how this goes. 


1. a person


My dad.
 He's crazy, funny, goofy, loving, and 99% of the time  he knows how to make me smile or laugh when I'm upset.

2. an animal
 My Brownie.

He's a sweetie....When he's not barking.

3. a cozy place in your home.
My messy bed.

It's so warm and comfy, it's the perfect place to relax.

4. a favorite snack

Pineapple! I love Fresh Pineapple. 



5. a place
 Anywhere my family is.


6. a pair of shoes
 Um...Any of these! Their so comfy, and I love that they come in different colors. 

7. a scent
 Perfume.
 Any kind of perfume, and the smell of make-up. 
They both remind me of my Grandmothers. :)
8. a restaurant
I love Chick Fil-a!
 And when I say love, I mean I LOOOOVE! Chick Fil-a!
Their food is so yummy. Plus, I'm all about supporting fellow Christians. :) 

9. a blog
 There are a few blogs I read. 
But, I'd say the ones I'm most thankful for are:
And

10. a time of day
 I don't really have a time of day I'm thankful for....But, I like this time of day.....


I went out side one morning when it was freezing to take this.....

Thanksgiving.....

Happy (Almost) Thanksgiving!!!! :D

This is my FAVORITE! time of the year! :)

Thanksgiving and Christmas are my favorite holidays. Ever.

Who's excited?!?!

ME!!!! *Raises hands*

I'm also super excited for 'Black Friday' and (as my brother and I were calling it) 'Black Thanksgiving' :)

I love going out shopping late at night....I think my dad is dreading it though. lol

So, I hope you all have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Eat lots of Turkey,
 (Just don't break the scale in your Grandma's bathroom. *Family story. lol* )

Enjoy being with your family,

And don't forget,

Be Thankful!

~Brittany


(PS. I'll most likely do a 'What I'm Thankful For' post soon! :) )

Project Bedroom....


Hello boys and girls!

Welcome to the story of my long awaited bedroom remodel!

So, some years ago my dad started remodeling our house a little bit. Not anything major, just replacing the old blue carpet with laminate flooring and painting the walls, things like that. So, my room and my brothers room are the only ones in the house that haven't been redone......

.....Until now...:)

So, it started with packing. 

Now I, like most people probably do, thought "Packing? No big deal. I just need some boxes to put everything in and I'll be golden. Won't talk long at all." 

Yeah right, biggest understatement on the year! 

First off, I have a ton of stuff. It's hard to imagine how much stuff one could have in a room as small as mine. Not that my room is tiny or anything, but it's not big by any means. 

Second off: I, like other people in my family (Dad, Johnny.), have a slight case of OCD. I could not deal with putting my books, and movies into boxes unless I knew they weren't going to get messed up. And lets not even get started on how out of order my books were when my brother started just putting them into a box! He didn't even keep them in order! UGH!




(My room while packing)

All I can say is, I'm not looking forward to unpacking....:/


So this is where I'm sleeping now....


In my brothers room.....Help me!! :/

At lest I get to sleep in my bed.....

Right, moving on.....

I've had the color I wanted to paint my room picked out of awhile now, and I finally picked a color for the flooring....

They started painting my room, here's what it looks like now! :)

Look at my room! All pretty and painted!

(The color is called Ocean Whisper.)

And I'm just going to say this...(even though I know he doesn't read my blog but).....You were wrong Jerry!!! I love the color!!!

Sorry, my cousin said some things....Lets not get into that right now....lol

Next came the flooring, I picked a darker color than what my dad has in the rest of the house. It's call "Vera Mahogany"

So, here's my room after they put in the flooring.

 
 It's safe to say I'm in love....Just kidding....
....

 My dad still has to paint the closet door.

But, as soon as that's done, there isn't anything else to do! YAY!


........

......Can I get a big BOO!! for unpacking???

I'll let ya'll know how the unpacking goes!!

Until next time!

Blah! School!

I've been neglecting you little blog, and for that I am sorry. 

Will you forgive me??
Please?


For days I've been trying to come up with something to write about....But, I keep coming up blank.....

I guess I could tell you how school is going...Well, it's going.....And going....It seems like all I do anymore is school work.

It's my last year, so I've got a heavy load of work, and it's beginning to become stressful again......I know I'm not behind on my work, seeing as I started the end of last month. But, I feel like I should be halfway through the school year by now.

It feels like I'm never going to get done, like this year is going to last forever....And the thing is, this year is shorter, if anything.

In order to attend my Graduation, I have to be done by the beginning of May.......

I just need to remember to tell myself, that every day I do school, I'm a day closer to Graduation.......

.....I can't wait until I'm actually there........Finally.

Season's Come......And Season's Go.....

It's almost time to say goodbye to summer, yet again.

The once warm days are getting cool, acorns are falling from the trees, the leaves will be changing soon, if they aren't already.

Gone will be the days of wearing shorts and filp-flops, and bright colors.

Instead you will be wearing jeans and sweaters, and there will be Burnt Orange's, and Browns, and any other colors that you find in the fall. 

Even though I will miss the summer......I absolutely love Autumn.

I love watching the Leaves change, I love the cooler weather, I love Thanksgiving. 

I just love the Fall! :)

Happy Birthday.....

I know I'm a month late with this but.......

Happy Birthday little blog!! 






~Brittany

Senior Blues......

So my last year of school is starting soon......Yay, I guess.

I know I should be excited, and don't get me wrong, I am. But, I'm also scared, sad, and have no clue what I'm going to do after it's over......I go from being happy, to so stressed I want to pull out my hair, to wanting to cry.....All in about ten seconds. As I'm typing this I'm crying, can anyone say 'Emotional mess'?

I don't know if that's normal, heck I don't think I ever know what is normal.......It's not like I'm getting ship off to some school in a different state, I'll still be at home....I'll have to get a job, because as of right now I don't want to go to collage, and I don't feel like I'll ever want too. I'd rather work, and make money, than have to suffer through another four+ years of school.

I just want to cry, and I want someone to hold me and tell me it's Okay to be scared of graduating, and that it's okay to cry. To grieve something that's been part of my life for 12 years, (13 if you count kindergarten....)
 
But.....I feel like no one would understand what I'm going through.......
It's just hard to imagine something you've been working toward for years, something you've been wanting, is so close you can almost touch it.....And suddenly, you don't want it anymore. You want it to go away, just for a little while. So you can be a teenager without a care in the world for just awhile longer.....Before you have to become an adult. 

I don't want to be an adult yet. I want to be a sixteen year old......I just really want to be just a sixteen year old. Not a sixteen year old who's graduating next June. 
 
Just a Sixteen year old.

Get To Know Me: Day 30


Oh my gosh guys! I'm so sorry it's taken me this long to finish this, I've been super busy! OK, so here we go, day 30


List 10 things you would hope to be remembered for?
~~~~~
 I'm not even going to try to come up with 10 things, that would be way to hard. But, I'm going to say, I'd like people to remember me however they want. If we've had good times together, remember those, if we've had bad times, remember that. Just remember it all, the good, the bad, the happy, the sad, the beautiful, the ugly......Just remember it all, and know that whatever 'version' of me you remember, that's who I really am.


I'm the girl that will still laugh at something that's happened months, or years, ago.
I'm the girl who still wants her daddy whenever shes sick.
I'm the girl who still tears up whenever she thinks about when he brother moved out, even though it's been almost four years.
I'm the girl who's afraid of the dark. (Yes, at 16 I still sleep with a nightlight.)

So whatever memory's you have of me, I'm sure their wonderful.
~~~

And with that, the 30 day challenge is over!
Have a nice night people!

Get To Know Me: Day 29

What do you think people misunderstand most about you?
~~~
Hm.........
That I'm shy. (I guess. lol)

Which is true to a point.
 Once I get to know you, or if I feel comfortable with you I talk, and talk, and talk. lol

Get To Know Me: Day 28

What is your love language?
~~~~~
Ok, I have no clue what this is so.....I googled it!! lol
This is the sighted I found:

And I did it twice, because there were two answers that fit me pretty well.

"Physical Touch
This language isn’t all about the bedroom. A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, holding hands, and thoughtful touches on the arm, shoulder, or face–they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive."
"Quality Time
In the vernacular of Quality Time, nothing says, “I love you,” like full, undivided attention. Being there for this type of person is critical, but really being there–with the TV off, fork and knife down, and all chores and tasks on standby–makes your significant other feel truly special and loved. Distractions, postponed dates, or the failure to listen can be especially hurtful."
 (I copied this off of the web site, so please disregard the first sentence on the first one. :( )
So....Apparently I'm very touchy and I like to spend time alone with people, so look out who ever I marry! Your getting a lot of hugs and you have to spend quality time with me! lol

Get To Know Me: Day 27

What is your favorite part of your body and why?
~~~~

I don't really have a 'favorite' part, I have a lot that I don't like......But, let's not get into that. lol

I'd have to say my favorite part of my body is my eyes. If you look close enough their a bunch of different colors....Ok, my eyes are *not* rainbow colored. Their green, but around my pupil is dark brown, and around the outer edge of my eyes are a dark color too. And I think their pretty. :D

Get To Know Me: Day 26

What popular notion do you think the world has most wrong?
~~~~~
 
Hm......
 
I'm not sure if this falls under the category or not, but, I think that the idea that it's Ok to have sex and get pregnant before marriage is wrong. 
 
I believe you should be married before you do any of that.

Because it effects everyone, even the teenage girls who don't do that get asked "Are you pregnant?" and I think that's wrong......Ok, ok. I'm going to stop this here before I go on a rant,

So I hope that answers the question.

Monday, June 25, 2012

Get To Know Me: Day 25

If you could have dinner with anyone in history, who would it be and what would you eat?
~~~~
Hm......

and we would eat what ever he wanted as long as he showed me every single part of his beautiful house. I mean, come on? Monticello is gorgeous!


Get To Know Me: Day 24

Describe your family dynamic of your childhood vs. your family dynamic now.
~~~~

Hm....I'm not really sure how to answer this....So......Sorry! :/

Get To Know Me: Day 23

List your top 5 hobbies and why you love them.
~~~~
Baking.
I love making new things and seeing how they turn out. I love baking with my cousins too, seeing as my one cousin is the 'Master Chef' of the family. lol

Photography.
I love taking pictures of anything really.....Flowers and stuff like that is my favorite.

  Reading.
 There no special reason I like reading, i just think it's fun.

Writing.
 I love writing on my blog! It's a fun way to express myself.

I really don't have a number 5......Sorry guys!

 

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Get To Know Me: Day 22

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 15 years?
~~~

In 5 years, I hopefully I've found a nice guy by then.....Fingers crossed. (I really don't want to be a lonely dog lady.)

In 10 years, moved out of my parents house at lest and have a good job, ya know if I haven't found my rich Doctor yet..... lol

In 15 years, I would like to be married and have a kid or two. I'd love to me a stay-at-home wife/mommy, I don't think that both of you should be working once you have kids.

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Get To Know Me: Day 21


If you could have one superpower, what would it be and what would you do with it first?
 ~~~~~
Hm......Let me think about this for a minute.......
Is being rich a super power?!? No, I guess not.......
Invisibility, and the first thing I would do with it is scare my brothers. lol
Because as of right now, I can't hind in my brothers closet to scare him without laughing when he comes into the room. lol

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Get To Know Me: Day 20

Describe 3 significant memories from your childhood.
~~~~
 
Que memory lane........
  1. The OC-CIA
    The Orange County CIA. We had a 'home base' and everything!

    One summer my brothers, my cousin and I made a fort in the woods by nailing some boards to a tree so we could climb it (Johnny did that one. lol), clearing out a 'parking lot' for our bikes, putting some nail's in a tree so we could hang our stuff: like guns, and my back pack full of 'Supplies', and making a sign that said "Orange County CIA: trespassers will be shot, survivors will be shot again." Yep, we were, are, violent . lol

     
  2. Going to Disney World.
    Do I even need to describe this one????
    I mean, come on! Disney World is the land of dreams! lol
  3. Getting my scar.

    Yeah, I know. Why would that be a significant memory? Because it happened, and I have the scar to prove it. And I have to live with this scar, so of course it's going to be significant. And partly because I like to tease Johnny about it, seeing as he's the one who did it to me.

    We were at my aunt's apartment and we were playing on the play ground, and at some point I put my arm over the wire fence and Johnny, who was playing with me, came up behind me and grabbed me, thus causing me to cut my arm. So, a trip to the ER and 6 or 7 stitches later, I've got an scar in the shape of a backwards 1 on my left forearm. lol

Get To Know Me: Day 19

If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?

Anywhere? Gosh, that's a hard one.......


My 'unrealistic' anywhere is Hawaii......
But, the more realistic one would be Florida, or Georgia. Anywhere near the beach, but my whole family would have to come with me. lol

Monday, June 18, 2012

What has been the most difficult thing you have had to forgive?

Forgive me? 

Get To Know Me: Day 17

What is the thing you most wish you were great at?

I'm not good at doing that, I tend to bottle everything up and keep it inside.


So yeah, I'd say talking about my feelings.

  3. Getting discouraged.
    If I don't do something right the first time, I get discouraged and don't want to try again.

     
  4. I have very little Patience for some things.
  5. Walking.

    Wednesday, June 13, 2012

    Drivers Ed SUCKS!

    So I started Drivers Ed Monday......And I hate it! 
    I also know I'm not the only one who hates it, from the impression I got from two of the other girls, they hate it too. lol
    Reasons I hate it.
    1. Mr. King talks to fast.
      There's a 'State Study Guide' we have to write in while he talks, doesn't sound hard right? Especially since as he gives you the answers. But the thing is, you can't write fast enough because he talks way too fast! Ugh!
    2. It's the same thing over, and over, and over.
      Read chapter, fill in the chapter study guide. Take chapter review test, swap review test and check other peoples answers. Take chapter test. Then turn everything in, and start it all over.
    3. So far, I haven't gotten my scores on three tests.
      I've only gotten scores on the first two, and on the review tests.
    4. It's so boring!!!!
      You never get a break, ever, the only time you get a break is to go to the bathroom.

    But really? I think being a Musician would be awesome, because I absolutely love music. But, I have no clue how to play any kind of interment, nor can I sing. Ok, I can sing (I sound good to myself, but I know it's all a lie.), but I'm sure it doesn't sound good to the people around me. lol

    Get To Know Me: Day 6

    What is the hardest thing you have ever experienced?

    The hardest thing I've ever experienced, so far, would be losing my Grandma last year.Watching her get sicker and sicker, and knowing one day, soon, she wasn't going to be here anymore was hard. Really hard.

    I hope nobody ever has to go through that.

    Hi! It's future you. Whats up? I'm going to tell you some stuff, so pay attention. 

    1. Johnny's going to move out in a few months, this will make you sad. Really sad. So try not to yell and fight with him to much, you'll miss him once he's gone, and from what I know he's going to miss you too.

    3. Don't be afraid to show your feelings, and you can talk to your brothers, your mom and dad, and your grandparents.

    4. Don't stress out so much.

    5. In three years your gonna get braces and an expander. It's not as bad as you think.

    6. Start begging for a Camera now. Photography is awesome, you'll love it!

    7. Your going to get a Nephew in three years, when you find out act excited. Johnny will still have time for you.

    8.Your Mom's Father hasn't changed at all, so don't think he has.

    9. Watch TV with dad more, he makes the funniest voices....And I think he likes spending time with you.

    10. When mom goes to see Maw, don't sit in the car. Go in, tell her you love her, give her a hug. You'll miss her a lot once she passes away.
      

    Captain America Nails

    Hey guys! I panted my nails today, and because I'm totally in love with Captain America, I came up with 'Captain America' nails.
    So, you'll need some Star stickers, like these:
     I think you can buy them at Staples, I get them with my Paces every school year.
    Pick out some Blue, Red, and White. You'll also need a clear coat. You could also use nail art pens, but since I'm cheap and those things cost like 7 bucks.....
    The brand I used is 'Pure Ice' and the colors I used are 'Superstar', 'Cream Siren', and 'French Kiss'

    I did it to my toes for the tutorial, just so you know.

    First pant your big toe (Or thumb.) with the White nail polish and let dry.

    Then take one of your Stars and stick it on your toe, like so:


    *Use the BLUE first! If you want it to look like Captain America's Shield, which I did. lol*

    Take the Blue polish and pant around the star, but leave some white space.
    Then fill in the rest with the Red. Once your done with that, carefully pull the Star off while the pant is still *wet*
    If you get any polish on you toe you can put some polish remover on a q-tip and use that to get it off.
    Last but not lest! Pant the rest of your toes with some Red, White, and Blue. After everything is dry, pant some clear coat on them puppies and your done!


    And there you have it! Captain America nails.

    I don't know why my picture is side ways. =/ Oh, well.

    Have a nice day!

    Life With Braces.....

    So I've had my braces and expander since the 9th of May, and I've gotten used to it. The first few days were frustrating though. When my dad turned the expander for the first time it felt like my teeth were going to snap off! :/ And the braces were stabbing me in the gum's, and I've diffidently eaten more than one blob of wax. (By Accident!)
    But, I'm surviving.
    I'm done with school for the summer!! Thank the maker! (lol, Star Wars reference!)
    And I just got back from the Smokey Mountains a few days ago. It was so much fun!
    And I start Drivers Ed in a few weeks so I've got something new to stress about! lol

    Have a nice weekend! I'll try to post some stuff soon!!

    So. Much. Pain!!!

    So, Wednesday I went to Dr. Miller and got spacers in to make room for the bands of the Expander.....And if the rubber spacers hurt this much, I don't want to think about how much it's going to hurt when I get the Braces and the Expander put in!! :(
    I woke up yesterday morning with all of my top teeth hurting. I swear, it hurt worse than when I got my Wisdom Teeth out!!
    I just laid in my bed and moaned until my mom came to get me up for school. Yea, not fun.
    It doesn't hurt as much today, but it still hurts when I try to chew anything. Yep, I'm going to be on another pudding diet when I get my Braces! lol

    I'll let you guys know how the rest of it go's!

    Have a nice day! :)

    Aren't Braces Bad Enough?

    So, I went to the Orthodontist Wednesday....And I need Braces, which is what I was expecting, what I wasn't expecting was needing an Expander. :/ And that freaks me out, and you have to turn it with a wrench every night.

    Ummmmmm am I the only one who would be freaked out by something like that??? I didn't think so......I knew, know, I need Braces. I was expecting to need Braces, that's the only thing I was expecting. Ya know, I thought I'd go in they'd say 'Yeah, you need Braces, but you wont have them that long' then they told me I need a Expander, and that just threw me off. Really off, I was mentally prepared for Braces. And it took me awhile to get to that point, now I've got to get to the point were I can think about having an Expander and not wanting to cry....Yea, you heard me! I'm an sixteen year old girl, we cry about everything, OK?
    Anyway, I need to stop stressing out or I'm going to be a walking Zombie from lack of sleep.

    Has anyone else had an Expander?? If so, do you have any advice? And does it hurt?

    Red Lobster Biscuits......

    I made Red Lobster's Biscuits today! Their sooooooo good!!
    If you've never had these before, you must make them! Or go to Red Lobster and keep getting them to bring you basket after basket of them. (Like we do when ever we go! lol)

    So when I made them I doubled the recipe........because I'm a pig and will literally stand in front of the oven and eat them right after they come out of the oven.....(So, I'm just going to give you the normal measurements. Then if you want to be a pig like me you can double it. lol)
     First get your stuff together and preheat your oven to 450.
    Then put 2 cups of Bisquick, 1/2 a cup of Cheese, and 2/3 a cup of Milk in a bowl.
    Then stir it all together until it's all wet and sticky, like so:

    Then make them into balls, I used my hands but if you don't like getting messy you can use a spoon.
    Then you pop them in the oven for 9-10 minutes, after their done take 2 tablespoons of butter and 1/8 a teaspoon of Garlic powder and melt that in the microwave, and brush it on your Biscuits! Then dig in!.....But try not to eat them all at once.
    Yyyyyuuuummmm!
    Have a nice day!

"Daddy don't like pistols!" "Daddy! Don't shoot me daddy!" *lol Inside joke* I'm going to warn you though, if you click that link you might get scared, because it's a picture of Willie, and he's scary.....*But you really should click on the link, lol* Anyway in the newest episode he killed an alligator with a knife! A Knife! A freakin' knife! And he so frigin' ugly! And some woman married him! Say it with me now, EEEEEEEWWWWW!!!!!!! lol

    Jedi Braid...

    So, I went to see Star Wars: Episode 1 in 3D with my brothers this weekend........Annnnd I wish I had put a Jedi Braid in my hair when we went to see it....but I didn't, so I did it today! And I'm going to tell you how.
    First: Put you hair up into a pony tail.
    Second: Take a sectioned of hair from behind your ear and pull it out of your pony tail. Like so:
    Third: Braid that sectioned of hair. Then take down you pony tail. Annnnnd!
    There you have it! An Obi-Wan Jedi Braid! (But, mine doesn't look as good as Ewan Mcgregor's)......Nerdy I know, but I think it looks cute.....And it makes me want to watch Star Wars! lol
    *Also, you probably notice I showed you the other side of my head in the first pic, that's because I already had the braid on the other side of my head! lol*

    Well, I'm off to get my hair cut! Have a nice day!

    J3P0

    I'm a Auntie!!! My sweet little Nephew was born on the 24th!

    His name is John Douglas Wood III. And he is so cute! I love him to death already! :)

    My brother (His daddy.) teased that he was going to call him J3P0. Ya know, like C3P0?! lol
    Here some more pictures I took of him.
    He wasn't even a day old and he already acts like his daddy! lol
    Then he was waving at me! :)
    He's such a sweet baby. And he smells so good! I love how babies smell.....and he's so soft! Perfect to cuddle with! :D
    Have a good night everyone!

    Randomness Number 2......

    I know, I'm awful! I just can't come up with anything to post, or I'll start a post and then trash it....Oh, well. *Note: This post is going to be random. You have been warned! lol*
    Anyway. My Sis In-law still hasn't had the Jelly Bean yet! He's too stubborn....Hhhhmmm....Sounds like his momma and his daddy! lol
    Also, I'm getting really sick of my hair! It's gotten to the length where I just keep it in a pony-tail at all times. About three *Maybe four, or more* years ago I had super long hair, it came half way down my back. And then I cut it.....And ever since then I've never grown it out past my shoulders. (Maybe a little past my shoulders, but no more than that.) And I keep telling myself "Your not going to get it cut, your growing it out again if it kills you!" lol
    My dream is to have long-curly-beautiful-not-frizzy-at-all!-hair. Like this:
    *I love Taylor Swift!* But I've got this:
    Yea, it doesn't looks too bad. But I never have it down any more. So I'm thinking about getting is cut....I thought this was cute:
    I'm always looking for something different than I've had before, so if you guys have any suggestions let me know! I'd really like it if you did! :) *Just no Lady-Gagme hair cuts, please!*

    Have a good night, and a good week, everyone!
