The Beibs

I am a beliber! JB's movie was soooo GOOD!
I saw it last weekend and haven't been able to STOP talking about it!
Seriously EXCELLENT!
So... you should go see NEVERSAYNEVER

Crafty crafterton!

So I made this CUTE/ADORABLE headband holder!!! I love it... and it left me much more room on my Vanity table then the huge plastic drawer! So easy and SO affordable. YAY!

Birthday Girrrrrrrrl!

So, it was my birthday, NO BIG DEAL.
I turned 24. NO BIG DEAL.
I didn't get my "check off one thing on my bucket list before I turn 24" goal achieved. BIG DEAL!!Total bummer that I slacked. haha BUT I am hoping to get it under control and get something knocked off my list! :)
I had a great Birthday weekend! I went to BJ's on Friday with some pals and then we went to the MOVIES and saw I am Number 4. I am in LOVE with Alex Pettyfer! I liked the movie and I wanna read the book!
Saturday I worked all day...I got a bottle of DIET COKE & a box of Krispie Kreme doughnuts from the girls at work. I then came home to go to Din-Din with my family at Olive Garden. After our dinner excursion I came home to watch megamind and eat a bomb FIREWORK birthday cake where my mom sang Katy Perry's Firework {alongside the traditional Happy Birthday Song}. So choice. because baby I am a firework... boom, boom, boom... brighter then the moon, moon, moon. don't be jealous.

I opened my birthday card to find a confirmation page for a pair of TOMS! {YAY}and Bedding from Anthroplogie! {double YAY} BEST BIRTHDAY WEEKEND EVER!

Oh- and if anyone wants FEATHER HAIR EXTENSIONS... contact me... I am YOUR girl!

So the other day I was driving down the freeway. I was in a hurry and in the HOV lane... I had to slow down a considerate amount because I came upon a truck (blue, Chevy silverado, probably an '06 model) and they were putt puttin'. I was sort of irritated because hi... I just had to slow down on the FREEWAY for this vehicle. I figured it was a SNOW BIRD... because lets get real... they are ALL OVER THE VALLEY right now. I mean EVERYWHERE. When I got up to the truck, because Yes, I totally got close to their rear-end, I saw they had a bumper sticker on their window that said ;

You are kidding me, right? You do NOT drive like a Cullen. I am not a huge fan, and I don't get all obsessive about the Twilight series but what an INSULT! So when the opportunity came I passed them and turned to them as I was even with the driver and said

"You don't drive like a CULLEN, LIAR!"

I felt great once I was ahead of them and was able to continue at the speed I like. When I thought back to the experience later that day... I couldn't help but laugh and I was NOT about to pass up the chance to blog about it. Life is too funny!

p.s. it wasn't a snowbird... although THAT would have been funny!

T. Swift

When Taylor Swift first came out I was NOT interested in her music!

I thought she was annoying and couldn't really sing...

BUT once I started to listen to her lyrics I started to fall for her music.

T. Swift, I realized, was the artist for all the songs

that are the "Underdog Anthems" for our generation!

She provides the songs that allow us to BELT out loud what our hearts have been waiting to say... she provides the words we couldn't form ourselves.

She puts music to our broken hearts,

to our sad days,

and to the days where we are floating on cloud 9.

T. Swift, You rock... and I salute YOU!

BIG GIRL JOB? check!

So I just wanted to update on my "New Year, New Rules" post.

I have completed the following :
  1. beat angry birds
  2. read books
  3. get big girl job

1.) I beat the angry birds on my phone. I was super excited. I know right? I am a total nerd. But I gladly walk around with the nerd herd who plays Angry Birds.

BUT... ask me how upset I was when I found out they added more levels onto the game AFTER I had complete it? (VERY UPSET!) -----> :(So now I am back to square one... trying to beat
angry birds!

2.) I just finished reading a book from 'The Pioneer Woman" called Black High Heel to Tractor Wheels.

It is the story of a city woman who falls in love with a cowboy and gives up her lifestyle to marry her man! It is a true story and this woman really know how to tell a story! She has an awesome website that is posted below. Check her out you won't be disappointed!

3.) I got a BIG girl job at this cute salon in Gilbert. It is off of Higley & Guadalupe and is called Salon Di Bella. I start this week! I am super excited and am ready to start building my clientele!

So far I am doing pretty good on my New Years list... let's hope I can keep this up!

Bucket List

I have only 24 days until I turn 24.

I am sort of freaking out here. Where am I going with my life... will I ever "grow up"... will I ever accomplish all the things on my bucket list... these are on my mind as I inch closer to the age 24. I know most people are like "You're still a baby, you are so young!". Let's get real. The average life expectancy of Americans is 74-78. SO lets just say I live to be 74 (right in the middle). That gives me only 50 years left to live! I need to start getting things done off my bucket list! Like FOR REALSY!
