In about 10 minutes i’ll be headed to Raleigh, NC to see 30 seconds to mars in concert! Saw them in Atlanta,GA in January and they were AMAZING, so needless to say, i’m pretty excited. Oh yeah..the lead singer isn’t too bad looking either…


5k? yikes.

18 Apr

Today is day 1 of my 5k training. I am very reluctant to sign up officially (eek!) because i am not 100% sure i can even run three miles without dying stopping. By blogging about this, i hope that you (whoever reads this…or just you casey young..haha) will hold me accountable for claiming i am going to do this, which in turn will make me feel like theres no turning back! I will be participating in the run for hope 5k on June 4th in Mayfaire, and when they say run for hope, they really mean run, jog, walk, crawl,or be-carried-to-the-finish-line for hope. I’m hoping i’ll be running, but at this point, the last option is looking pretty promising. If anyone would like to join me/train with me/carry me to the finish line, PLEASE let me know! Wish me luck!! I’ll keep you all posted…mainly to let you know that i’m still alive. p.s. rachael mott you’re doing this with me…you just don’t know it yet.

What ARE these things?

My little just told me that she wanted a micropig. My first reaction was…a what? Well, i just googled one, and am now in love with these little ugly things.

A micro pig in rain boots. You CANT tell me you don’t want one now.

New Hobby

6 Apr
This afternoon i was inspired to go out and buy some acrylic paints and learn how to use them. No, i’m not an awesome painter, but i thought it would be fun to learn! With the help of youtube, i have been painting all afternoon and absolutely love it.
With the help of this slightly obnoxious youtube video, i was off to a good start.

Sleepy Kitties?

I Don’t have a Kitten….but how cute is this?

rav3nnoir:  Kitten Sleeping Bags.  awwwww

Busy week ahead, and the absence of Jersey Shore on thursday isn’t going to help make it any better. At least Americas Next Best Dance Crew is premiering on thursday to replace it!

Sorry Snookie, see you this summer in Italy. Ciao
