No Snow!

Why is it that it only snows when you don’t want it to? I have plans to head to Charlotte tomorrow night for P’s going away party. But, by the looks of things- she’s going to be heading to Costa Rica without a proper send off from me. 5-10 inches?! Are you kidding me? It was 60 degrees yesterday. And in NC, that’s practically flip flop weather. Okay. That's it for me. I must make a mad dash for bread and milk.

Okay. I admit it. I’m an infomercial junkie. While i’ve never actually purchased, it doesn’t stop me from lusting after these ridiculous amazing products. Give me a sham-wow any day. Oh and Oxi-clean sounds like a win for sure. My latest craze? The In styler. I need it. Well, no, I don’t have curly hair. and No, I don’t have much frizz. But it looks like fun. And that’s what really matters.

George and Reba consumed my life this weekend. Not that I’m complaining.

Friday night was spent giving away tickets to the show every ten minutes. That’s right- every ten minutes. We were definite crowd pleasers.

Saturday, The Wolf invaded the Greensboro Coliseum wearing bright orange wolf t-shirts. The game? People had to ask to have their pictures taken with staff in hopes that they’d pick the right people with Meet n Greet passes. Saturday was NOT a day to not enjoy being hugged by the masses.

The aftermath? Well, we dominated the coliseum.. annnnnnnnd realized just how unflattering traffic cone Orange really is.

It’s become a tradition for me to ruin my dad’s birthday cake. I either burn it, add too much oil, or drop it. What can I say? But this year- Oh, sweet satisfaction. While I'm no Martha Freakin Stewart- I nailed it.

Fist pump like a champion

This was my Saturday night. Spent with three great friends from college. It was the best kind of reunion because it was unplanned and last minute- and very much needed! I hate that we are all spread out over the state now, but it makes it that much sweeter when we are able to get together. We decided that it was a "balls to the wall" kind of night. And now that I have woken up with a splitting headache, a sore right arm from fist pumping (thank you Jersey Shore), and tight abs from laughing more than I have in months I realize that "balls to the wall" is an understatement.

Today, my morning drive to work which typically takes me about 12 minutes took me a mere 7 today thanks to EVERY traffic light being green on my way through. Which means I was only 13 minutes late instead of my usual 20! SCORE! Today could be a good day....

How do you wake up one day and say, "hmm.. I'm going to make myself completely unrecognizable."

This has clearly become an addiction. Lay off the silicone, H- you're gonna topple over.

ay ai ai

Yep. That is exactly how I've felt ALL DAY! It's been one of those completely hellacious I'm-going-to-crawl-under-my-desk kind of Tuesdays. Catch ya'll on the flip side- hopefully with a better attitude in tow.

I have been in a Dawson's Creek coma for like two weeks now. No, seriously- like hours upon hours every chance I can get. I got the entire series on DVD for Christmas, and now there's no going back. 127 episodes here I come.

New Years resolutions:

- It's officially get out of debt 2010. Budget in motion.
- Stop gossiping. Even though this isn't a big problem for me- i'd prefer to be know as someone "who never has anything bad to say about someone else."
- Start standing up for myself more. And in a way that when I do, people don't just think i'm in a pissy mood.
- Start saying "no." Just in general- I don't have to please everyone all the time.
- Stop online shopping- refer to first resolution.
-Have a yard sale and get rid of stuff that is collecting dust. Clothes included. I do NOT need 42 pairs of jeans.
- Figure out exactly what my goals are instead of spending everyday effortlessly just to get to the next.
- Start making important decisions completely on my own and not count on other people to tell me if something is a good idea or not.
- and last but not least- Take a vacation to somewhere tropical!

New Years

How can you not have a good time when there's a free sit down dinner, open bar, and Bucky Covington. Okay, kidding about Bucky. But it was a really good night! Some highlights: inappropriate groping of coworkers, crazy boobs-hanging-out lady, having a random stranger coming in the hotel room to tell you how dangerous it is to keep the door open, staying up until 5 am, calling Jimmy Johns more times than I can count- and much more. Here's some pics from the night!
