Hopelessly Addicted to Edward Cullen!

Hey girls!

Oh my gosh, I went and saw Twilight tonight and I am in love! I'm serious, more serious then all of the 12 year olds who "think" they love Edward Cullen, I really do!
No more spray tans for this girl, Edward Cullen makes pale look so good! He is so gorgeous! WOW!

I was really impressed with the movie, and I am ordering the books first thing tomorrow! I never, ever get into these things like Harry Potter, Twilight, ect. but Edward Cullen makes me melt, so I just can't help myself!

You all just enjoy this image...for hours on end...he is too beautiful not to stare at!


E called me right after the movie, and I couldn't help it...I told him I was in love with Edward Cullen! HAHA! No, but he wants to go see it, so that means I GET TO SEE IT AGAIN! My roommate and her sister and I may even go sometime this week too, so I am gonna make E go with me then!

The whole story line is so good! I can see why people love it.

Well, i'm off to pack and get ready for the luncheon tomorrow!

Christmas Survey

I love all of the home videos we made at my grandparents over the years, they are so funny and sweet of all of us! It is so great to look back at the memories! Those are my favorite Christmas movies...oh and of course National Lampoons Christmas Vacation!

2. Favorite Christmas Song?

Barlowgirl's Christmas Album...it is so beautiful! Mistletoe- Colbie Caillat, and The First Noelle- N'Sync

3. Favorite Holiday Memory?

Probably the year I got my Barbie Jeep, oh and of course when my Nana thought it would be necessary to give me a training bra when I was 9!! Y'all i'm 20 and probably still can't fit into the damn thing! haha! all of my cousins (who are boys and may as well be my brothers, we are all very close!) thought it was hilarious! Not only was that a crazy day, but its also on one of the home videos so we all get to revisit the memory every year! GEEZ!

4. What kind of cookie/treat do you like to make?

I LOVE to make caramel cake! My mom actually makes it, it was her Grandmothers recipe, but it is wonderful! It looks and tastes amazing!

5. Have you ever made an igloo?

Lord yes! My friends and I were in High School, they were seniors and I was a sophomore and we spent 2 hours building an igloo at the driving range. It could fit all 7 of us in there! When we took our lunch break at the club, we came back and all of these cute kids were posing for pictures in it because the parents thought the club had built it! It was so much fun! It lasted for 3 whole days!

6. Do you love Starbucks?

I like it, but hardly ever go.

7. What makes the perfect Snowman?

A carrot nose!

11. What is your favorite Christmas decoration?

My mothers beautiful wreaths she puts on our windows, and the tree! Both are just beautiful! OH and of course our Life Size Santa!

12. What's your Christmas decorating style?

Very classic, I live in a yellow wooden house and its very long and tall, so we usually do wreaths on all the windows, candles in the windows, a big tree with white lights and childhood ornaments in the big bay window in our dining room, another tree on our front fenced porch, and greenery along the stairs outside, and inside with holly tucked inside. It is always so pretty when I drive home for the first time from school! It just makes me smile!

YES! We all have matching green and red stockings, mine has a blonde girl on it.

Christmas Eve- delivering the toys to the children, and seeing so many happy faces that I only get the chance to see once a year.

18. What's your favorite Christmas food?

My Busy Week!

Hey Girls!

Let me just tell y'all about my week!

So today, I am back in Raleigh and one of my roommates is here! YAY! I have been missing them already!
I was supposed to tutor today, but one of the kids, poor thing, got a stomach virus! Those are so awful especially around this time of year. I am so paranoid about throwing up! Oh well, now I have so much time to get things done!I have printed out more resumes for more news stations.

Speaking of news anchors, as I was packing this morning, Dr. Phil was on and NANCY GRACE was on his show! YAY!
Absolutely made my morning!
She is just too funny, and so smart. People think she gives her opinion and doesn't state the facts, but really she does state the facts, just with an attitude so you think its simply her opinion! Personally I don't care what she does as long as her show stays on air!
Anyways, so Dr. Phil was talking about "Horror Headlines" like with murders and stuff, and I almost changed it when that cute Anne Presley's picture came up. I thought her incident was just the saddest thing that I had ever heard! A man murdered, and raped her. The suspect they caught has other charges against him involving some of the same actions. Also, women at a gym were complaining about him!

Moving on, let me tell you what Nancy had to say today, it is just so funny! (Not the situation by any means, her facial expressions, and comments)

They were discussing the 8 year old boy who allegedly murdered his father, and his fathers roommate Tim.

Nancy said: "Not to speak ill of the dead, but what kind of parent gives an 8 year old boy access to a 20 caliber!?"

Then, Nancy and Dr. Phil were discussing another murder where a 13 (at the time) year old boys sister made him take the blame for shooting her husband, when she herself shot him! Let me add, she is now on death row, and he got out of jail 6 years later. YIKES!

Nancy Said "To the sister sitting on death row, I hope you ROT in hell!"

HAHA, so quick, and so witty! She can make her point.

So anyways when I got to Raleigh, I accidentally left my lights in my car on for an hour, so I really hope it starts later! I was talking to one of my best friends from High School and just completely forgot to turn them off...Whoops! I also accidentally left my keys in the door, I have got to stop being so ditsy and remember these things! See, I accidentally dropped my laptop on the way in the house, while still on the phone, and a girl only has 2 hands! I forgot all about my keys, y'all know how it goes, too much at one time!

Wednesday, I am attending a Debutante Luncheon in honor of one of my good friends in Salisbury! I am so very much looking forward to it, it will be my mom and me and then many other daughters and mothers! It will be just beautiful. I am not sure what I am going to wear yet, I don't want to be too fancy but I do want to be very classy. My mom and I could not decide whether to go because it is such a hectic week, but anything to do with Deb season, and I am hooked. I cannot say enough about how much it meant to me to be a Debutante, it is not as important to some people, but for me it really helped me come into my own and I love living up to the expectations of a Debutante. Her deb ball was actually about a month ago, so I guess this is just a luncheon to celebrate it one more time. No excuse needed! haha!

Thursday, My friend who is having the deb luncheon, her brother and I are best friends! I have known them both forever, and they are such sweet people! He is the same one that I went to that Country Club with, if you haven't heard about that, scroll back a few posts! It is too funny! Anyways, T and I are headed to the Biltmore Estate to see it decorated for Christmas. That is our gift to each other. So excited!

Then, im going toy shopping for Project Santa with a few people, we go every year together and get extremely outspoken when it comes to toy shopping because I am very adamant on getting the kids what they request depending upon our budget. Karen, this funny lady who thinks she knows what kids want tries to buy cheap toys, but no no! Not this year! I am all about deals, but does a 16 year old boy want a remote control car?! NO! He wants a play station, tv, or radio thank you very much! Despite the overwhelming atmosphere, we always have a good time, and we both get to be in charge! I am looking forward to it, we are hitting every toy store within 2 hours of Denton and not lookin' back! These kids are really going to smile on Christmas!

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

Sunday, December 14, 2008


Hey girls!

Wow! What a week it has been! I have been up until 3 am for the past 3 days, and I am sooo tired! When I get tired, I get a tad bit more outspoken and rude then usual! It hasn't been pretty today haha!
The first night I got home, it was around 10 and I just unpacked forever! There is a lot going on around home right now and I am I think just overwhelmed. Its okay though because its Christmas and everything is always okay at Christmas time!
The second night, I stayed up with some friends who were home and watched Christmas movies until I just couldn't watch anymore...so much fun! Last night, I went out riding golf carts with a nice glass of wine and my friends. We always ride so late and don't even realize it! (Can you girls tell I live in a small town with limited options on things to do!)

Tonight is the big High School youth group party that my mom throws every year! It is so much fun, well it used to be for me. I actually am staying upstairs for this one, although we did spend much of yesterday and today cleaning house and it looks fantastic! She did such a great job, as always! She has been throwing this shindig since I was in the 9th grade, and it starts with dinner, then the youth goes caroling around my neighborhood (haha always a thrill...not!) After they carol, they come back and do a gift draw, and some of the gifts are hilarious! It used to just be one of my favorite nights of the year.

Also, I know this is probably so sac-religious but it is so worth mentioning!!

So we have this sweet pastor at our church, hes absolutely wonderful with the old and the sick of our congregation, and he does well in the pulpit. So today, he was leading the Pastoral Prayer, and he says " We pray for all of the sick and the poor throughout our country today. (Here we go!) Also, we pray for the stampeding at Wal-Mart, and the shootings at...Toys R Us."

Okay, all of that is very, very sad! This poor man though, talks about as slow as a turtle walks! In Mexico on our mission trips, we had a joke that if we asked him what the day had in store, it would be over by the time he got an answer out! Very slow, slow talker! He is truly a great preacher though and I probably shouldn't have told that story. It was just so funny though, how slow and serious he could say the words Wal-Mart and Toys R Us! My sister and I were dying laughing, and my mother was none to happy, she was actually down front serving communion, but oh did she see our faces trying to hold back! I bet if we had busted out laughing she would have been almost as unhappy as she was when I wore my monogrammed strapless dress last Easter Sunday...I will never forget her looking at me and saying "not in my pew!" Granted it was a little cold, and I was coming from Lake Norman with my friends, I should have gotten a sweater. Y'all all know that Southern Mommas have their rules! Her facial expressions are always absolutely priceless, and she never gets angry.

Okay, back to the last few days! I have been printing off my resume and cover letter and sending them to over 30 stations that I found on this great media website. I am asking that they just keep me in mind for the future because my advisor says this is always a good idea, I sure hope he's right! I am so excited to see the plan that's in store for me! I think I am gonna love where I am at in 5 years career wise if I can just stick with it!

Well, I will post again soon! Have a great Sunday!
