Hellooooo Bahamas! You will find me cruisin from Charleston on April 8th with four of my favorite ladies. This. could. be. dangerous.

I felt i NEEDED to post this.

Meet Bill. He is 67 years old. and he winked at me on Match. Why would I have even shown up in Bill's search results? Oh, because he is currently seeking a lady friend between the ages of 18-26. OH and she must be beautiful and intelligent of course. Only the best for Bill!

THIS... this is what is wrong with society today. The Bills of the world are screwing everything up.

Date night.

Had a date last night. With Ben. Yep, Ben & Jenn. It had a nice ring to it. No?

Well, apparently Ben also lived in the same world I did my whole life where I told everyone (and secretly believed it to be true) that I was 5'7". Ben said he was 5'8". Ben was not 5'8". That is kind of one of those details that you can't fake. Thank god I wore flats, cause standing at a whopping 5'5" was Ben... and Jenn.

The height wasn't the reason for my lack of interest. He is also 32. Which in theory didn't seem that much older than my 25, but lifestyle wise, we are VERY different. I have a feeling i'll get another date request out of him.. we'll see.

quarter, anyone?

Yes, THIS was my night, indeed. 3 hours spent in Randleman are 3 hours that I will never get back. Although- where else can you get a "spritz of perfume" for just 25 cents??!

it gets better and better.

It seems I might need to start updating my "this is me" blog again because these emails are just too funny not to share.

Hey sweetheart how are you doing?I never knew I'll see a cute thing like you on here,that has
beautiful eye's and a nice smile too.Maybe I can be that lucky guy who can get to know you????I
know it's alot of women out here dats single and good looking but who I wanna get to know is a
cute thang like you.

Okay. First of all, what happened to punctuation? I can barely read some of these emails without any breaks in sentences. Secondly, the guy who sent this to me is a nerdy and white. Interesting.

"hey just found your profile i am a rapper :) i work with 102jamz and am abotu to have a single on the radio i think its phenomanal you work at radio please tell me more also you like rap/hiphop i have some stuff on youtube i woulds love to show you what high school did you go to i went to one in greensboro ragsdale :)"

I'm not trying to be picky. But a girl has GOT to have some standards, right? Right?! Chances are, if you use the word CHILLAX in your profile, it's not gonna look good.

an interested POV on textual relations

“I was shooting a scene in my new film, No Strings Attached, in which I say to Natalie Portman,

‘If you miss me. you can’t text, you can’t email, you can’t post it on my Facebook wall. If you really miss me, you come and see me.’

I began to think of all of the billions of intimate exchanges sent daily via fingers and screens, bouncing between satellites and servers. With all this texting, emailing, and social networking, I started wondering, are we all becoming so in touch with one another that we are in danger of losing touch?

It used to be that boy met girl and they exchanged phone numbers. Anticipation built. They imagined the entire relationship before a call ever happened. The phone rang. Hearts pounded. “Hello?” Followed by a conversation that lasted two hours but felt like two minutes and would be examined with friends for two weeks. If all went well, a date was arranged. That was then.

Now we exchange numbers but text instead of calling because it mitigates the risks of early failure and eliminates those deafening moments of silence. Now anticipation builds. Bdoop. “It was NICE meeting u” Both sides overanalyze every word. We talk to a friend, an impromptu Cyrano: “He wrote nice in all caps. What does that mean? What do I write back?” Then we write a response and delete it 10 times before sending a message that will appear 2 care, but not 2 much. If all goes well, a date will be arranged.

Whether you like it or not, the digital age has produced a new format for modern romance, and natural selection may be favoring the quick-thumbed quip peddler over the confident, ice-breaking alpha male. Or maybe we are hiding behind the cloak of digital text and spell-check to present superior versions of ourselves while using these less intimate forms of communication to accelerate the courting process. So what’s it really good for?

There is some argument about who actually invented text messaging, but I think it’s safe to say it was a man. Multiple studies have shown that the average man uses about half as many words per day as women, thus text messaging. It eliminates hellos and goodbyes and cuts right to the chase. Now, if that’s not male behavior, I don’t know what is. It’s also great for passing notes. there is something fun about sharing secrets with your date while in the company of others. think of texting as a modern whisper in your lover’s ear.

Sending sweet nothings on Twitter or Facebook is also fun. In some ways, it’s no different than sending flowers to the office: You are declaring your love for everyone to see. Who doesn’t like to be publicly adored? Just remember that what you post is out there and there’s some stuff you can’t un-see. But the reality is that we communicate with every part of our being, and there are times when we must use it all. When someone needs us, he or she needs all of us. There’s no text that can replace a loving touch when someone we love is hurting.

We haven’t lost romance in the digital age, but we may be neglecting it. In doing so, antiquated art forms are taking on new importance. The power of a hand-written letter is greater than ever. It’s personal and deliberate means more than an email or text ever will. It has a unique scent. It requires deciphering. But, most important, it’s flawed There are errors in handwriting, punctuation, grammar, and spelling that show our vulnerability. And vulnerability is the essence of romance. It’s the art of being uncalculated, the willingness to look foolish, the courage to say,

‘This is me, and I’m interested in you enough to show you my flaws with the hope that you may embrace me for all that I am but, more importantly, all that I am not.’”

- Ashton Kutcher

4 inches of hell.

Weekend in review

Quick synopsis? Thursday night was wine night at our usual spot- Speakeasy. It's true, we have a "usual spot." So much so that when I walked in late, the bartender was on the way to my table with my wine bottle ready to go. Friday night, Sunny and I went out downtown and played "wingmams." The most action I got was a 21 year old inadvertently touching my boob and bragging about it to his friends and having my drinks bought by a 55 year old man. Saturday night, Meggan (one of my best friends from college) came in town and we went out to Johnny and Junes.. where we danced the night away to Colt Ford and drank our weight in gin and tonics. We got home at 5am that night.. so it must have been a good one!

Needless to say, my Monday off from work was spent recovering.

J: you know.. bite of the beast...errrr.. hair of the dog REALLY works?
T: You mean like drinking what you drank last night?
J: Yeah!
T: I think that's how alcoholism starts.

Hmm. She may have a point.

Hey, Mumford and Sons

On repeat. I think my coworkers are going to get annoyed soon. Oh well. Total Swoon.


Went and had a mani yesterday, and in honor of the big V day- my girl asked if I wanted pink. Yeah. This is what I went with. I think it signifies how I feel about today.

On a positive note, I did receive these GORGEOUS pink roses from the only man a girl can count on.. my dad :)

Just ordered this cute little baby cocoon for an upcoming Newborn shoot!

The double Barrel

Target had this little puppy on clearance yesterday, so I figured, why not! It's pretty neat actually, and only took like 5 minutes to "curl" my whole head.

Oh and please disregard my one arched eyebrow. It happens.

Textual Relations.

I think Drew Barrymore said it best in "He's just Not that Into you."

"I had this guy leave me a voicemail at work, so I called him at home, and then he emailed me to my BlackBerry, and so I texted to his cell, and now you just have to go around checking all these different portals just to get rejected by seven different technologies. "

Seriously, though. When did it become appropriate to no longer be asked out over the phone, or in person. These days, you're lucky to get a FB chat with these lovely three words.... wanna go out? Is this what dating life is destined to be like? No more late night phone calls getting to know one another.. but rather a text here and there asking, "what's up?" No wonder the majority of the guys i've been out with over the past year have pulled disappearing acts. All it takes is simply not responding to a text.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed this isn't a permanent pattern.

Currently stuck in my head. LOVE this song.

love love love this cover.

just dance.

I had a GREAT weekend. Date night on Friday night, and girls night on Saturday! Two of my best friends, Cory & Ashley came to town to visit- so we went out to a fun dinner and caught up on all the crazy things happening in our lives and then went out on the town with some of the girls from here. Let's just say.. 8 ladies, shots, dancing.. yeah, it was a funny night!

I've had a lot of inquiries lately for Boudoir shoots- which I must say, at first, were not my favorite. However, after doing a few more, I'm starting to really like them. They have been turning out beautifully- and make the lovely ladies who book them feel great about themselves! Thank god my condo has numerous painted walls and a guest bedroom perfect for these kind of shoots!
