um. weird?

So, while continuing in my facination of Chris Noth, I discovered today that he is older than my dad.
um. I don't think I care.

a busy girl

I have been SUPER busy the last week- finished school last Friday- had two days of post planning this week- and in the mean time managed to see 4 movies and 2 concerts. Jealous? I know. I would be jealous of me, too.

I saw Steve Miller Band and Joe Cocker at the new Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Alpharetta-- it's really nice- it's very comparable to Lakewood/HiFiBuys in size but just a newer, slightly classier version. But it was a GREAT show-- Joe Cocker impressed me- Steve Miller Band was as awesome as I could have ever imagined.

And I saw it with some amazing girls!I also saw Natasha Bedingfield, Kate Voegle and The Veronicas at Variety Playhouse this week- SO SO SO SO great-- I love Kate Voegle-- she was uh-MAZ-ing. Can't handle how great she is!
But the whole show was super!!

And I've seen Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (amazing), Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford is still hot as ever), What Happens and Vegas (Kutcher and Cameron at their bests), Forgetting Sarah Marshall (HILARIOUS), and Sex and the City (still love Big- he's my #1). Check them out!!

words to live by

This was on a cute little sign I saw at Target- can't find the link. Sorry-- but it's super cute!! AND SO TRUE!

these are a few of my favorite things....

Car monogram! I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT IT!!! Ordered from my pals over at The Pink Monogram-- a-DOR-able!

AND- I got this uh-MAZ-ing clip board from The Pink Azalea-- precious.

AND- the BEST part of teaching- end of the year presents! SO excited about using this at The White Rabbit- an ADORABLE store in Kennesaw- LOVE it!!

Yay for AnnieT!

The baby sister graduated yesterday! Hooray!! High school is over for everyone in my family. Well, except for the Neph. But I guess I mean the immediate family. Hooray!

Big is ALWAYS better

So, I LOVE Chris Noth-- the love for him started when he was on Law&Order- as Detective Mike Logan-- I loved how crass and cynical he was. (And he was with Jerry Orbach and Jesse Martin which I did NOT hate either...)

And then he went away. AND THEN HE CAME BACK- even better as Mr. Big on Sex & The City-- life changing. I always liked him most- even over the sweet guys in Carrie's life- I ALWAYS wanted her to choose Big. So when she picked him- my life was complete.

And now he's back.
And the world is good again.
Love Chris!

One Tree Hill this week was AMAZING. Dan's crazy and dying. Love Nathan and Haley. OMG-- canNOT believe that Lucas told Peyton that he hates her- I was NOT expecting that!!! hands down the best show on television.

Gossip Girl is a close second, though-- stellar episode. I KNEW I hated that Georgina girl the minute she walked into the first scene. I love Dan and Serena together, so I'll be SO sad if they are actually going to break up for real. And I was on Jenny overload, so I was grateful for a break from her. BUT- I couldn't STAND Blair's mustard yellow dress-- it was a weird cut and a weirder color.

Samantha Who? Do you watch this show!??!?! It is SO funny. But Todd made me sad on this episode. Which made me sad. Because he's normally so precious. But seriously, you need to jump on the Samantha Who? bandwagon- because you will laugh out loud!

Drove to Conyers to see the bff (who lives in St. Louis) for dinner- she's in town for a wedding. love her. wish we could EVER live in the same city!!

but I love her more than life. she knows ME better than anyone- she doesn't always know the day-to-day dealings of my life, but she knows WHO I am and what I want to be.

Love you Ka-tee.

one of those weekends

This was one of those weekends that started out kinda gloomy on Saturday, but by Sunday it was BEAUTIFUL.

Here's the puppies enjoying the sun and the shade at mom and dad's house!

Stephen loves me!

My PRECIOUS shoes made the web site!

You need to go get your own Stephen Bonanno sandals! Who doesn't love a monogram?!

match maker, match maker- make YOU a match!

Last night I went to dinner with some friends at the Varsity (SO good!)- and our conversation turned to boys (shock).

And they're getting on to me for not hooking them up with some of these awesome boys I know. Because I really do know some stellar boys but they're all about 23 which is a skotche young for me, but perfect for these girls.

So, I went through the extensive list of stellar boys, then matched my friends with different guys. Then we all went home- and they stalked them on facebook-- and once they realized how cute and awesome these boys are, they had me send them all a message explaining that there was going to be some matchmaking, so to get excited.

Needless to say, the boys loved it. They thought it was the greatest thing ever. So, now they're friending it up. They'll probably get married, and I can take all of the credit for being the best match maker in the world. :)

Props to me.

On a more important note- my love life: boys all around, but nothing too exciting to report. Few crushes running around- few conversation pals developing. Gotta a date this weekend- no pressure- will probably be nothing. But, I'll keep you posted!

me me me me MEEEEEEE

maybe i should cut my hair? It’s really long- I might be ready for something new…

i love the smell of jasmine vanilla soap from bbw, clean boy, pool chemicals

people would say that i’m completely friendly, outtacontrol, funny, a little bitchy when needed.

i don’t understand why people judge things they don’t understand

when i wake up in the morning I hope that’s Saturday. And wonder if I have time to hit snooze. Again.

i lost my willpower to not drink Diet Coke.

life is better with time.

my past makes me better at being me

i get annoyed when people treat me like I’m stupid. Because, well, I’m not.

parties are usually more fun if there are adult bevs involved.

dogs are super. Love love love.

cats are the worst invention ever. I hate them.

tomorrow is probably never going to come.

i have low tolerance for slow drivers in the left lane. And Georgia fans.

i’m totally terrified of being alone forever.

i wonder why I love middle schoolers. Seriously. Who does that?

never in my life have i used illegal drugs.

high school was good times. But I would NEVER go back.

when i’m nervous I talk faster than normal. And get a little quiet.

one time at a family gathering... I ruined the party by having to go to the hospital. Again.

take my advice: credit cards suck.

making my bed is a daily event- I love walking into a room with a made bed.

i'm almost always smiling or laughing

i’m addicted to Diet Coke, One Tree Hill, and flip flops.

i want someone to want to call me everyday. Not my roomie- even though I love her too.
