Today is a rainy blah day. We had thunderstorms last night so of course I didn't want to get up this morning. But I had too... have I mentioned working is for the birds? Well it is! Gloomy day... Gloomy post. sorry
This is how I feel today.
I wish I had Hunter boots. and that red lipstick. and my hair in a bun.
I wish this was my view on this rainy day.
I wish I was doing this. Coffee, scrabble, and bagel.
With the Oscar's getting closer and closer, I thought I would do a post on the Best Picture Nominee's and One the Road.
I probably wont go see all of these. I have seen one so far. ha and Half way through one of the books. So we shall see.
This is probably one I wont go and see. As much as I hate to say this but I have no real desire to see it.
Argo!! This is the next movie I will see. Probably tomorrow night. So many people have been talking about this one it's hard not to want to watch it. I love Ben Affleck and CAN NOT WAIT to see this movie. I'm kind of embarrassed it has taken me this long.... Hey I've been a little busy.
Beasts of Southern Wild... If someone could tell me what this movie is about I might watch it. I'm not opposed to watching it just not sure what it is about.
I was sad when some of our friends went to see this movie and I couldn't go. This is on my list. Probably number 3. But I will see it. Plus it has Kerry Washington in it and I just love her.
This was another one I was suppose to go see with my friends andddd I missed out. I have always been interested in this movie and I will go see it. But I'm not really in the mood to cry so I'll probably wait a while to see this one.
Life of Pi... I am stuck reading you and I CAN'T GET THROUGH!!! arggg!! But I will see this movie soon. Probably in the next week. The book is good but just very detailed and you can't miss a beat or you are lost.
Lincoln is another one that I can't believe I haven't seen. I will see this one by next Monday!
Hey Silver Linings Playbook. I will watch you this weekend. Probably Saturday or Sunday. This is the Number one movie I want to see. I am obsessed love Jennifer Lawrence. She is one of my favorite Actress right now. I think she deserves every bit of the fame and awards she is getting! I love that she is who she is and no one can tell her otherwise. and I love her acceptance speeches!!!!!
I watched this one yesterday. and it is AMAZING! I hope all the best picture nominee's are as good as this one. I truly loved this movie and Jessica Chastain. She is such a talented actress. I love her in Lawless and the Help. But this movie is intense ( in a good way) from start to finish. You are on the edge of your seat the whole time. I just loved it. I can't wait to make my step dad watch it. This is right up our alley.
Who do you think will win best picture?? I'm not sure yet but I'm betting on Argo.
Now for "On the Road"
Well well well where do I start? I have been wanting to see this movie since it's original release in August. It didn't come out anywhere near me so I have had to wait until Yesterday to watch it. Well it was interesting at that. It is a very odd and weird movie. I'm not really sure how to describe it. But the acting in it is AWESOME! Kristen Stewart isn't awkward or annoying ( surprise!!) and Garrett Hedlund, who I LOVE!, was also really really good! Sam Riley is a great actor. I wasn't disappointed by the movie just weirded out? maybe? I am now debating on if I want to read the book or not. We will see.
I have recently became OBSESSED with buns. I want to wear my hair in one all the time. But i don't because I am scared! I feel like only certain people can " pull them off". The first few times I tried it at my house were failures. The bun looked puny. Well whenever I would ask other people how they would do their bun the answer way always tease the crap out of your hair.... I am not a hair tease kind of girl so it scared me to tease my hair just to put it up. Well kids this is the key. TEASE TEASE TEASE!! The bigger the better. I still haven't mastered the bun but I'm slowly easing my way into it. I have successfully wore my hair in a bun twice. ha Next I want to add a headband. We shall see.
For those of you who have been hiding under a rock and haven't watched Pretty little Liars.... DON'T DO IT!!! Kidding. But seriously it is so addicting. Don't get me wrong it is a great show, with pretty good actors but it gets you hooked! I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHO A IS AND WHO TOBY IS PART OF THE A TEAM!! Simple questions right? well i doubt we will find out either of those answers this season.
I have to say though they have given us more this season then they ever had. We found out Mona and Toby are on the A team. We found out that the main A is a girl. Who killed Maya. That Aria's dad was getting blackmailed by Ally but didn't kill her. That Meredith is a PSYCHO! That Jenna can see. That Garrett as suspicious as he was didn't kill Ally and now he is dead.That Mr. Fitz has a child and a family and is rich! Spencer's parents are actually nice.. who knew? And That Caleb is perfect! HE BETTER NOT BE ON THE A TEAM TOO!!!!! and Spencer finally found out that Toby is on the A Team!
Things we still don't know.... Who the main A is. Why Toby is on the A team? What did the lairs do to Toby and Mona to make them hate them so much? What Jason's deal is? Is Ally still alive? Why are Jenna and Noel SO SKETCHY? What does Lucas have to do with all of this? Is he bad or good? Wren.... why does he always pop up that the sketchiest times... Who killed Ally? Why is Ezra dating a student and why does he keep so many secrets? Who killed Garrett? Who killed Ian? Is Paige really good? Where did the weird cop Darren go? and where did Mike, Aria's brother go? Is Meredith really that crazy?? What does Melissa have to do with it?What did Ally really do that summer? and Who all did she see that night?? Did I miss any?
I don't know about y'all but I am really looking forward to the rest of the episodes of 3B. Spencer found out last night that Toby is on the A team and I'm interested to see when the rest of the liars find out and what his reasoning is.
Well if you don't watch it, the first two seasons are on netflix! They are really good but remember they are addicting!!! You can't just watch a few and then the next week watch a few more. This will be one of those stay up for 3 days and watch them ALL! ha And if you are like me and like to read spoilers I have found a lot out at Wetpaint.com.
All of the guys from Rosewood. Who is your favorite??
I know January is almost over but I still wanted to do a post about my New Year Resolutions.... Here they are....
1) To do a 30 Second dance party everyday.... It's the little things that make you happy. haha
2) Finish my Devotional- This was one of mine last year and I'm happy to report that I got almost through my one from last year... I'm about 100 pages short. Hey, It's better than noting.
3) To start the Read the Bible in a Year devotional. This has always been one of my goals and I think it's time to do it.
4) To be genuinely nicer to everyone and truly learn to let things go. I have grown so much in this department in the last year but I still have so much more to learn!
5) To travel more. I have started doing this more too but I want to do it even more. When an adventure presents it's self I just want to GO and not think about it! Also I want to visit all my friends that live in different places at least once before the year is over.
6) To cook more. I kind of got lazy and stopped cooking or would cook easy things that I cook all the time and I want to start cooking at least one different thing I've never cooked before a week...
Well wish me luck that I can accomplish all of my resolutions!
This past weekend I went to Nashville to see one of my best friends, Mary Catherine... aka Mary. haha. It was such a fun relaxing weekend. I love Nashville and Mary's apartment. Friday we were lazy and just watched TV. She got me addicted to ANOTHER show... House Hunters. LOVE IT! Saturday we went to the frothy monkey for breakfast. It was such a cute fun place and they had amazing coffee. If you ever get a chance you should go.
We went and had brunch with a few of her friends and then got ready for our night out at Mercy Lounge. IT was such a fun night. We got to hear new bands that haven't made it yet but THEY WERE SOO GOOD!!
Here is a few pictures from my weekend...
Then Sunday I had the dreaded drive back but it wasn't THAT bad except for the whole rain thing....
Sunday was also mom's birthday. Dr B and I cooked Shrimp and Grits for us and some friends Sunday night. I have to say they turned out pretty good! Monday night we went to Chucks for family dinner plus Jami. Chucks never lets you down. I have recently decided I like Martini's... Yes I feel like Carrie from Sex and the City and LOVE every minute of it.
I have had a full week of work. I'm off Friday this week but tonight I'm going to see JUSTIN BIEBER!!!!! with Jami and Kendyl! Trust me I will blog about this tomorrow because I feel like a little kid the night before Christmas... I'M SO EXCITED!!!!! No judgement please...
I'm going to leave y'all with one of the Bands I heard this weekend. Here is Cherub- Doses and Mimosas
It's been rainy here for like a week but good news is it's suppose to the sunny Saturday!! Happy Wednesday everyone!
Well tricks we went to Miami this past weekend. The cousin's plus Jami drove 13 hours. It was a LONG drive but we made it. Our parents were a little skeptical about 5 girls driving by ourselves ( with our handy dandy just in case travel bag) We had a few bumps in the road and a few Honey Butter Chicken Biscuits from whataburger ( if you haven't had this then YOU ARE MISSING OUT!!) but we made it safely!
It was an awesome trip. We got in Miami about 11 Sunday morning and just piddled around. We went to Van Dyke Cafe and sat beside Dick Vitale, which was pretty cool, and we went to the beach and just looked around. That night we went to this place Josh likes and ate right on the water. It was so pretty. He also took us to his secret spot that had an amazing view. Then we went and had drinks at this neat outdoor mall type place with music. It was a fun but busy day!
Monday morning we woke up and GOT READY FOR GAME DAY!!!! My parents got there around 1 and we finished getting ready and went to DASH. We still aren't sure if Kim was in there or not but they locked the store for over an hour and wouldn't let anyone in. So of course we waited until they finally let us go in. While we waited we ate at this little restaurant beside Dash that had the best Pizza and Best Margaritas. Like seriously the best.
We walked down to 8th and Ocean, me and Cayla have always wanted to go there since that silly TV Show about the models. ha We finally got to go in DASH and we all bought a little something. I got a candle that smells amazing.
Then it was time to go to the game and tailgate. We got tickets to the Fan zone and saw Luke Bryan in concert!! Jami, Rebecca, Phylecia, Kylee, and Braxton were all there too. I love him so much and fell even more in love with him after this trip. We danced our little hearts outs. haha
After this we went into the game. Cayla and I sat together and Kylie and Katie sat together. They sat right behind mom and Dr. B and had the best seats!! So during 4th quarter we walked down there and stood with them. Joshua got into the game for $40 i repeat FORTY DOLLARS!!! Lucky duck!! The game was fun and even though i was a little disappointed that I only got one piece of confetti I still had an amazing time!!
We got up Tuesday morning and drove to ORLANDO! Where we got to go to Harry Potter World!!! If you know me then you know this was the highlight of my trip. SERIOUSLY! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Harry Potter. It was like you walked straight into Hogwarts. We rode the ride where it was like you were flying on the broom and went into almost every shop. We also tried butterbeer ,which was different. ha. It was such a cool place. I wish we would of been able to stay longer but we had to get home to Tuscaloosa. We drove a few more hours then got another hotel room and got up Wednesday morning and drove the last 4 hours.... We also stopped and got another Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit.
This was a sign at the restaurant we ate at beside Dash. hahaha It just made me giggle.
I hope everyone had a great time watching the game weather you were there, at home, or at a bar. I loved Miami and loved getting to hangout with my best friend, Josh, who lives there. I hope everyone loved this weekend as much as I did. Work on the other hand I do not love right now... I still haven't caught up on my sleep.
Our dad's and basically the whole side of that family are Notre Dame fans so we are looking forward to our next family function... Which happens to be Monday. Wish us luck!
