To The Sister in College

Hey everyone, my sister's name is Kelly, she has always and always will be my best friend. Two days ago she left for college which I was well prepared for. I knew that life was moving forward and me and my sister were moving into an exciting lifestyle with college, and driving, and work. So this was normal, and I was ready for Kelly to head off.

My true fear was that Kelly would be immediately grown up, she would have a boyfriend, she would stop coming home for Christmas, she would move into her own place, and she would feel far more mature than me. But I was wrong, only two days after she left I realized that I would be thrilled for her to have a boyfriend. If she wouldn't come to my Christmas, I would go to hers. If her house was halfway across the country I would fly out there and visit her every so often. I realized that life really does move forward, and there is nothing anyone can do about it. If anything, we should enjoy it.

So Kelly, I don't know if you read my blog but I love you and everyday I think of you and I will continue to forever. I am excited for life to move foreword and I am excited for school to start so I can stop missing you. It isn't like I miss you desperately, I just think of you often and notice your not being here.

PS: The bathroom stays super clean without you :P

Idiot Dog + Bold Skunk

Equals, the naked girls washing the idiot dog with hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, and soap....... at 11:00 pm.

Yes, my dog was seriously just sprayed by a skunk. He has never gotten super close to a live animal so what he did was he grabbed it, tossed it around. was sprayed once, twice, three times tossed it some more, and then watched it scurry under the deck.

I can't say I have ever been that close to a skunk, and I am not proud of it noe that I have. Litterally every room in my house (excluding the garage) smells like skunk. This is also not just a normal skunk smell, it is a terrified skunk smell.

So yea, I wanted to just share that with you...

Oh, the naked girls part right. Well my mom was naked so she could bathe the dog, my sister was naked so she could hold the dog in the shower, and I was naked so none of my brand new first day of school clothes would smell like a freakin skunk.

Wish me luck falling asleap.

DIY- Starbucks Cuff Bracelet Tutorial

DIY - Starbucks Cuff Bracelet

I am a major fan of Pinterest so feel free to repin this!

Fabreze Fabric Refresher

Hey guys, I have yet to find a nice spot for my new bra but, today I would like to talk about Fabreze!

So we have all seen the Fabreze Fabric Freshener commercial where people go into a gross room and think it smells like a nice house because people sprayed the couches with Fabreze. May I just state, I would get a hell of a headache in a room that smell like a gallon of fabreze. I have never tried it so I don't have a real say in how it is, but this is how I think of it.

There was once a chair that was 50ish years old, it came from my grandmother and there is a legend that a wedding ring diamond was lost in the cushions and has yet to be found. Well, today I looked at my sister as she ate a peach on this chair. The peach dripped into the chair and we watched at the stain disappeared. But we both knew that that sticky peach juice was now a part of the chair. That was when I wondered if we could clean it. That led me to think of spraying Fabreze on it, till I realized that that Fabreze would be just like that peach juice. The fabreze would drain into the chair and become a part of it, sticking to the fibers in the chairs cushions. Later more Fabreze would be sprayed and inside the chair the cushion would start looking foamy and the cushion would slowly get thinner and thinner as the fibers stuck together when sat on.
That is my take on Fabreze Fabric Refresher, like I said, I have not tried the product but I have reason not to.

Soon I will hopefully have a tutorial on how to make a Starbucks bracelet, so stay tuned

New Bra Deserves It's Own Drawer

Hey everyone! I am proud to say that I have made it to over 100 views! Yay! I am thrilled. Anyway, yesterday I went shopping and found a new bra. Bra shopping is quite the challenge because you have to try them all on and it takes for ever. I usually do my bra shopping at target but yesterday i was at Nordstroms. Nordstroms is very fancy and it's bra department was very butiful.

At Nordstroms I grabbed several nice bras to try on and headed for the dressing room. There was a nice lady in front of me who was going to try on bathing suits. The dressing room '"guard" opened a room for her and said, "Hi, what is your name?" the girl responded with her name and then the guard said, "Great, well I will come back to check on you and get sizes for you." Very nice right? Well then the guard comes to me, opens a door and sais "Here" and then she leaves. I guess I look too young to spend money and deserve nice dressing room treatment. Whatever, I continued with my search.

I tried on the first bra, which was from the clearence section, it fit better than any bra I have ever worn. I put it in the maybe pile and tried on several more.

meanwhile the girl next door was getting great service and asking for other service. Not me though

Finally I found the PERFECT bra and looked at the price. $45. WHAT? $45 dollars for a freakin bra?! thats nuts. So then I looked at the price of the one on clearence.....


.....On clearence! Who pays that much for a bra? Anyway, my mom then came in and asked if I had found a bra. Well, I explained the prices and she agreed that 78 was rediculous. She wanted to get me a bra that I could wear without complaint so I showed her the $45 one. She told me she was buying it no matter what.

So here I am, with the perfect bra. I have a problem called, it needs a perfect spot. I feel like none of my other bras deserve to be near it in the drawer.

Where do I put my beautiful bra where it won't be contaminated by the itchy, rude, grey, target bras?

For now it has it's own side in the drawer......

Piano Man
500 Miles
Roll On
Les Champs

Your Song

Any other ideas? I need at least ten songs for a solid mix tape.

Dark Side

Ok, admit it, you all knew I wouldn't make my nail polish holder. I actually did look for a spice rack at some thrift stores but have yet to find one, and I promise I will keep searching. 

I hope you're wondering what the title to this post means because it is somewhat obscure. The title is a reference to Kelly Clarkson's current hit song, "Dark Side." When me and my sister first heard the song we were in a giddy mood and laughed at how scary this song really sounded. Here are the lyrics to the beginning

There's a place that I know
It's not pretty there and few have ever gone
If I show it to you now
Will it make you run away

Or will you stay
Even if it hurts
Even if I try to push you out
Will you return

That is just the beginning, and personally if I were the person she was talking to, I would not return. Anyway, we instantly started planning a music video and invited our friend to do it with us. After a week of hearing the song we all started to actually like it.
Here is the video

I am addicted to Pinterest. If you have ever been on that website, you can see how I would get addicted. I spend most of my time looking at DIY boards and have found more than 100 projects that I plan to work on. I have yet to start one...
Anyway, today I am starting my first Pinterest project! My sister and I both have a large shared collection of nail polish. We like to create designs on our nails in our spare time, thou our nails stay un-polished for most of the school year. Our collection is currently resting in an old Crocs bag. We usually stuff it all into a tiny wire basket but I found and idea on Pinterest that will give us a place to put our nail polish!
here it is

it is an old spice rack that has been painted.

And that is what I am doing today! I promise to post pics of before and after

I love Netflix, like I said in my previous post. I highly recommend it. These are my favorite TV shows on Netflix that I have watched with my sister. (Not in order)

Grey’s Anatomy
Desperate Housewives
The Vampire Diaries
Kyle XY
How I Met Your Mother
Pushing Daisies

I have enjoyed them all. If you are looking for some TV shows, check these out.

Men I like from these shows (because I know you really care, and I am a teenager):

Dr. Shepherd (no brainer)
Charlie and Desmond
None from DHW

It is way to hard to watch a show and not like any of the men. DHW was entertaining enough to keep me going without an adorable man.

Sunday, August 5, 2012


Men are adorable. I am completely accepting of those women who like women, and those men who like men, and the men that like women, but personally, I am a fan of the men. It is a fascinating concept of who you like. In fact a common truth question in the game of “truth or dare” is often, what you like in a man. Well friends, I have never ever had an answer to that question other than their personality. (According to many of my friends, personality is not included as a trait) So, I finally came up with several things that I look for in a man.  You want to know now don’t you? Well, surprise, you have to wait till the end of this post to see what physical traits I am interested.

My sister and I love to watch TV shows on Netflix. I will post later what shows we like, but anyway, we like to admire that sexy and cute men in these shows and wonder if these people exist in real life. (Yes, is the answer to that question) Kelly and me have very different tastes, but always support each other with who we like. Kelly for one, is into the scruffy sexy men, where as I am into the clean cut sweet men, who have the ability to grow out there hair and let me see a little sexy in them. It’s quite great because we rarely love the same men, but we both kind of love each other’s. I don’t know if that is clear, but Kelly and me get along pretty dam well when watching TV shows.  So yea, just wanted to share that with you all.

Answer to the truth:
I like men who are medium sized or short (I am short so tall men are tough) I would go for a tall man if he were fantastic. I like dark hair, preferred to blond but again, no real preference. I love all eye colors. Honestly, I have never been on a date (yes I am almost 17) so I really don’t care about looks.

Well, thanks for stopping by. I hope you are all faithfully reading, but if not, I appreciate that you showed up today.

Men I like from TV shows will be on my Netflix post
