IM BAAAACK. and so are the Olympics!

SO. Its been a hot minute since I've written on here...apologies. It's been a craaazay weekend/beginning to the week!! First off, I went to Minneapolis for the weekend and it was amazing! I ended up getting Friday off work, so instead of my 9:40pm flight, I did standby for the 8:40am flight, and (due to 2 connection flights being late) I ended up getting on by the skin of my teeth. Thank the Lord. So Im beyond elated to get into town to see my love and spend the whole day doing whatever until the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics later that evening...

WELL, Mr. Kevin and his ding dong friends decided to go out the night before, lose their softball championship game, then go to dollar bowling at 10pm. Kevin ended up sleeping in Friday morning and forgot to pick me up at the airport. I sat at the airport for 1 hour and 45 minutes plotting my wrath to surely kill him when he did get there. I was beyond mad...there should be a new word invented for the rage I felt in ending his life. I'll stew on that for a little and get back to you. So when he picked me up, I ripped him a new one and he of course had nothing more to say besides how sorry he was. He was super sorry and I mean, how long can you really hold a grudge against someone who fully understands the level of their screw up. So eventually, after he apologized forever and ever, I got over it. THEN he decides to take me over to the house with all his friends that "peer pressured" him into drinking until Lord knows when in the morning. So I get there and those guys are an even hotter mess than Kevin was. They're all still in their stinky softball outfits and knee high socks. 


We all went to lunch and it was just dandy. Now, I'm super dooper excited about the Olympics. So after watching that terrrrrrible (said in Charles Barkley voice) Opening Ceremony, we couldn't take it anymore. (seriously, who wants to re-live the Industrial Revolution or see light up beds and huge baby heads?--NO ONE) 

We went out to start the weekend in downtown Minneapolis...Kevin then gets a text from his life long best friend (he is the 3rd baseman for the Twins--who recently got sent back down to the minors to improve his hitting) saying he's getting called back up and will play in tomorrow's game. Wouldn't you know it, we had tickets and we were already planning on going. PERFECT! His fiancé (they both went to high school with Kevin and I) was also coming into town and I was just tickled pink. Im going to her bachelorette party in October and haven't seen her in a few months.

Me, Jocelyn, and Joanna

I'd also like to note, these Minnesota fans are serious about some baseball. You can see that those seats are pretty much full...and they are currently the worst team in the league. The Marlins got a brand new stadium this year, Im pretty sure they couldn't pay people to come to their games. sad. (and they just got rid of all their players, idiots). The Twins ended up sweeping the Indians that weekend :)

Lets get down to the serious stuff. The Olympics.

I just looooooooooooove the Olympics, it shows me how unaccomplished and out of shape I am as a 26 year old female. But thats ok. I grew up doing gymnastics and cheerleading, so naturally I love watching gymnastics. I've been a fan since the '96 Atlanta Olympics. I even went to the "rock n roll gymnastics tour" after the Olympics wrapped while I was living in Indianapolis. It was a birthday gift I'll never forget. I'm a huge fan...I even got Shannon Miller's autograph about 10 years later in the Mall of America, I was the only person wanting an autograph who was over the age of 10. oh well. I don't care. Kevin made me get in line after I freaked out when I saw her sitting at the table signing autographs...I was instantly embarrassed to stand in line with those little girls, but after he announced "We've got her biggest fan, right over here" I accepted defeat and got in line so he'd shut up. ahh memories.

I'm sure you've seen the biggest choke of all time that happened last night. The reigning bronze medal Mens Gymnastics team totally Ray Finkled* their moment in the spot light. They didn't even televise our rotation on the rings---thats how bad it was. (that or they kicked us out and asked us to go work on our  cartwheels) We ended up in glorious 5th place. shame shame. better luck in Rio, guys.

This is turning into a novel and Im sorry. I'll just wrap this baby up by saying. Its Tuesday so Tosh.0 comes on tonight, and if you can tear yourself away from the Women's Gymnastics competition tonight (going for gold) and Missy Franklins swim, as well as Michael Phelps (going for 2 medals) swims tonight, then good on ya. Im not. Sorry Tosh. I love you long time.

bye folks!

*If you haven't seen Ace Ventura, slap yourself right now.

gay chickfila, penn state, mariah carey

I would first like to start this off by saying, being gay is not a choice. If you're ignorant enough to think kids, teens, and adults choose to ostracize themselves, hide their identities for years, and commit suicide then shame on you. Why do you care what gay people do? you aren't going to catch it and you're certainly not going to change it. Now, Chickfila is just stupid for even addressing this whole gay issue. Everyone knows how good their food is, gays and straights. I can understand why the gays are having an uproar, but then again, they have an uproar over anything. I have a hard time with this issue because I do have a lot of family and friends that are the stereotypical southern, judgmental, and stubborn ignoramuses. It hurts my feelings because my best friend is gay and half black. I have many gay friends that are just like you and me, and it hurts to even think that they are judged by what their sexual preference is, rather than who they are. I need to move on from this subject before I start name dropping and go into a rage. Open your mind people.

In other recent news...
Penn State is finally starting to act like what all of America is feeling. Joe Pa's old wrinkly ass died and left a legacy of shame. Thank God it came out. He turned the other cheek while a ton of kids lives were permanently scarred. The statue was taken down and his recorded wins were all taken away dating back to 1998, making him not the all time winningest coach. He now falls to #12, behind FSU's Bobby Bowden and Alabama's stupid Bear Bryant (with all their made up national championships)-----don't get me started on Alabama Football. barf. Penn State is also banned from bowl games for the next 4 years, they're being charged $60 million dollars, instead of paying toward their football program, to put towards abuse causes and such. And finally, which I think is the best, all the football players are allowed to transfer anywhere they want without being penalized, meaning they're able to play immediately. sweet. How sad is it that such a legacy went down in such terrible flames? Well, you reap what you sow, Joe Pa. 

And finally, Mariah Carey has signed on to judge American Idol. Excuse me, but what is someone like Mariah Carey doing on reality television? Celine would never pull such a move. I feel its a low point in her career, but then again, she did marry Nick Cannon. yikes. The show did do wonders for Jennifer Lopez's career last year. huge things....like the 'highest earning woman of the year' things. Whatever, I want the old Mariah back, the running though the fields in jean shorts and mid-drift showing singing to me about her sweet, sweet fantasies, baaayyyyybeeee. before she went all crazy with butterflies.

I survived... barely.

Well this has been a Monday. My calves burn from two nights of 5+ inch stilettos and about 6 hours of driving yesterday. 3 of which I was riding in a back seat filled to the ceiling with suitcases and everything 9 girls need to throw a lingerie party/stay at the beach. Then I had to drive about 3 hours in my car from Montgomery to Atlanta. BOO THAT. I had a loooooot of fun though and surprisingly it didn't rain at all when we were down there. We laid out in the overcast both days and got some sun. The only bummer was that myself and Lauren got Jamie the same thing from Victorias secret :( womp womp. 
We all decided to wear pink and boy was that a hit when we went to dinner. We went to Cobalt, which is a nice restaurant on the water. They told us the wait was 2 hours, so we decided to take our troop to the outside bar.....and sure enough, 15 minutes later we got our table. crazy. and awesome. Its as though they had never seen a large group of hot women wearing the same color, because every single person starred as we filed down the middle aisle towards the back room to our table. It was like a Victoria's secret runway show except we all weigh more than 70 pounds and didn't have million dollar diamond bras on.

Lingerie Party 
Gulf Shores, Alabama

War Eagle, Ladies

Those are the only appropriate ones I have to post.....we have far too many jobs/dignity to protect. At some point, we met a bachelor party at the Florabama... his fiancé was in New Orleans (so was our brides fiancé) and so those lameo's followed us around all night. Lindsey then found out one of the guys was taking the bar the upcoming Tuesday, then we heard there were more lawyers in their group. She then decides that we're going to be smart lawyers too. She said I was a pediatrician, someone was a nuero-scientist and then threw a couple more of us in as lawyers.  When he asked about her advice for taking the bar,  I almost peed myself. Seeing as she is about to be a teacher, not an attorney. Then after some hot tubbing, waffle housing, and 4am beach frolicking, I think everyone was finally asleep. It was such a fun trip! The wedding is in 3 weeks, so....now its time to lose weight so my dress will fit!!!!!! awesome. 

My next trip is in 4 days, Im headed to Minneapolis on Friday :) I cant wait to see my kk. Adios muchachos!!!!

Beach Bachelorette Party Preview

So its Thursday and today Im heading to a bachelorette party in the biiiiig party beach city of Gulf Shores, Alabama. I know, I know. party. central. Well I think there's about 10 of us going down and packing into a condo...The weather report says 60% chance of rain tomorrow and 50% Saturday, so this should be fun. However Florabama in the rain, I've done before so its not a total loss. I just hope I don't run into my dad there...OY! Being contained with 9 other chicks in a room for 2 days could prove fatal. However I've lived with 3 of the girls, so I know at least those will survive. Lets paint a pretty little picture of what Im up against... All the girls going are about 115 pounds soaking wet with perfect you know whats and southern charm, then theres me....oh and Marlea, she's a cop, and lets face it...she's got enough stereotypes to fight off (LEZZzzz be honest). But Im the (only) dark haired Indian girl with a deep love connection of all things carb related and cheesy, Im a little hippy and curvy, and just really don't give a flying bleep. So Im like Barbie's secret friend who she doesn't want to take in public, and Barbie, is who I'll be with this weekend. Except barbie is really, really country, Christian and super sweet. and has the most southern draaawl you've ever heard in your life. She also has guns... and brothers.

Take a gander at barbie & co.

....I've decided we shall take a stroll through college memory lane....I hope no one kills me for these fantastic photos Im posting.

marlezzylea, me, and bride barbie

Marlea is scared of the sun


I finally did it

bride barbie, bridesmaid, bridesmaid barbie


The only person who doesn't like the sun more than Marlea, is Jes...and her sister.

we're wearing the same bridesmaid dress. I just cant wait.

ohhhh let me touch your leg

This lady protects the streets of Alabama.

What Im trying to say is, Im ready for this wedding. Let the camo wedding bells ring!! I hope you enjoyed these pictures throughout the college years. Lets hope I make it through the weekend! tata

men, football, brown eye

chello all,

Its chtuuuuesday, don't you hate it when people say it like that? me too. Which means.........tosh.o is on tonight! Yes!!! the only thing I look forward to on Tuesdays is this. He's the only man I find attractive that I probably weigh more than. If you don't love him, go get your head checked. While we're on the subject of men I fancy, here's a list in no particular order: Ryan Reynolds, Ryan Gossling, Channing Tatum, and last, but certainly not least........TIM TEBOW..........sigh. 

But lets get down to the serious business, Auburn football starts in 46 days. I will unfortunately be missing the first game vs Clemson, which will ironically be here in Atlanta. I will be in Minnesota celebrating the Labor Day/my birthday weekend there, supposedly they have big fairs there.....I will NOT be spending my birthday with carney folk, please believe. All I know, is that they have over 10,000 lakes and you bet your sweet ace I'll be floating on one of those with a cold one. Be it by boat or floaty, its happening. Im also excited for being the only insane fan 18 hours north of Auburn, Alabama watching this game and screaming like a maniac...we all know thats the only way Auburn plays, where you want to rip the tv off the wall, kill someone, and cry at the same time. so. beware minnesoooooota. And our games vs Clemson in the past few years have been a reaaaaaaaaaal nail biter. I don't even want to think about it. 


The other thing I noticed recently is that I believe my eyes are not brown anymore. Im not sure when this happened or if no one told me, but my eyes look more greenish that brown! w.t.f. Im having an identity crisis and Im not sure how I feel about it. whats next? pale skin? ginger hair? oy. before you know it I'll be eating lucky charms, irish dancing and be attracted to Colin Farrell. nay I say, nayyyyyyyy. 

looks green to me....or is this considered hazel? whatever it is, I want brown back.

adios muchachos!

it's sunday, lets nap.


Today is Sunday and Im half deep in a bottle of chardonnay....lets dance blogface. This weekend has been the only one where I have no plans at all.........these are rare. Im busy most weekends, between family in Daphne, Al and Boca Raton, Fl...and Kevin in Minneapolis....Im all over ze place. This weekend I had no plans, and I wanted to keep it that way......I did however get a text at 3pm yesterday asking me to babysit...I accepted. So the highlight of my weekend was babysitting 2 kids Saturday night.......I also took 2 naps today, one at about 10:30 and the other at 1:30.....(and I'm not even depressed) I've also failed to mention that I started juicing 3 days ago and have since lost 5 lbs....so thats also a large thing thats been apart of my weekend....I juice 2 meals a day, breakfast and lunch....my favorite recipe is 4 carrots, 3 apples, 1' ginger, and 1 lime. YUMMMMMMMMMMMMO. I have a bachelorette party to attend in 4 days.......and Im certain to be the largest lady there by about 25 lbs. I hope to lose an additional 5 lbs by Thursday. BET IT. 

Another thing that happened recently....yet strangely, is that both my mother and best friend have been fighting with me for about a month or 2 now.......however, mom sent me an email yesterday, and my best friend text me a picture of us today....hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....shall I mend those bridges? perhaps. Im pretty stubborn, however Im also very level headed and know when things are my fault............Im pretty good at admitting when Im to blame...and Im pretty sure Im not for neither instances....mayyyyyybe I am when it comes to Carol, but then again, I cant control the US postal service and she needs to get over it, and stop imposing her views on me. As for my best friend...........I need Dr. Phil. 

There are some big changes coming soon in my life and I want all to be well in the transition. Anddddddddd on Friday I plan on getting a copy of my birth certificate so I can finally get a passport. Amen! oh and Im going to Minnesota in 2 weeks yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. talk soon blogstalkers.

And in case you're interested, Virgin Diaries comes on this Wednesday at 10pm EST on TLC........its hilariously ridiculous and a great laugh. please watch. thank me later for the awkward laughter you experience.

I love Tim Tebow.

Friday the 13th


I've decided, for some reason, to start a blog. Mainly out of boredom, mostly because I like to show people how awesome and funny I am. Oh and connect with "family and friends", isn't that what most people say about doing one of these things? When in actuality they probably just want to show off how perfect their lives seem and rich they are. My life isn't perfect and I haven't inherited a large sum of money nor rob banks on the reg so, I'd consider myself pretty comfy and borderline normal in my happy loud life. I enjoy the finer things but lets not get crazy. I owe ewgobs of money to Auburn University that I'll be paying off until Im 40. boo. 

SO, "friends and family" whats happened with me in the past couple of years? Well, if you don't stalk me daily on face book then here's a snapshot. Graduated in 08/08, moved to Atlanta in 10/08, not married, no kids, no tattoos, and still have long hair. My twin sisters are almost 11, Drew is almost 24 and I'm almost 27. I still don't have a passport and have never been on a cruise. Carol finally got married and cares for her 2 dogs more than me, Im fairly certain. They don't talk back or eat as much as I do. Then again, I don't poop and pee on the floors!

Well, I think this about wraps it up for me folks. Have a happy Friday the 13th, walk under some ladders, do something with black cats, break a mirror, and step on a crack. I'm not superstitious, just a little stitious.

I don't take a lot of pictures alone so enjoy my vanity for the moment.
