The Blind Side


The Blind Side was heart-warming and entertaining.  Sandra Bullock is riiiiiiiveting in the innovative role of  a rich, aging white woman. Oh...wait....what?

2 out of 5 yummy cupcake hearts

I can totally see you watching this on DVD. Maybe eating some red vines. Drinking a cold carbonated beverage? Yeaaaaah...I can see it.



"A Spindle, a Darkness, a Fever, and a Necklace"

Dearest The Internets of my heart,

My sister gave me my Christmas pressie early this year. I know, I was totally surprised!!! Anyway, isn't it beautiful? Sugar and spice, and everything nice....

Someone took my absolute love for owls, gaudiness, & Betsey Johnson and exploded it into one magnificent little beauty.

Delightfully yours,

Dearest The Internets-

I saw Brothers last night. Every time I see Jake Jyllenadskjfklajdfljadfall and Tobey Maguire separately I always have to stop and think "Is this Jake or Toby". ALWAYS. Thanks to Brothers, I might not have to do that as much.

The movie was fine. And you know what, I'm sure there is a huge audience out there (see: military people and their families, people who have brothers, people who have a heart, etc.) that will really really love it. I was bored, frankly. More Jake Gyllenhaal, less everything else please.

I'm not even going to rate this movie because I wouldn't know how to even start.

"The (After) Life of the Party"

Dear The Internets,

The leopard print dress I ordered from Torrid came last week! And I loooooooooove it. 

Mini review: It's a lot shorter on me than on the model, but that's to be expected because my torso is long. I paired it with deep smoke coloured tights from LB today, so no worries on the length issue. The fabric, which I was initially worried about based on the description, is absolutely fantastic! It's not clingy or itchy and it looks like it will keep well. I have a feeling I can do a lot of different looks with this piece. So I'm thrilled. All in all, this dress is a must have!

Happy day, indeed.

"Death For My Birthday"


Today is my birthday! ♥ I'm 21+7  now. I'm currently floating in a sea of good wishes and love thanks to all my family and my friends...not just here in the states, but all around the world (all because of you,  of course!).

(look at my absolutely lovely stack of kindergartener birthday cards!)

Today I'm here to tell you that I'm going to live the best life I can live and be the best EKG I can be. I'm vowing to put aside all the things that eat away at my happiness. I'm too old to do anything besides what makes me happy.  And that's what I will do!

I better run. My official birthday festivities begin with a yummy lunch at the Pita Jungle and I'm looking rough.

Wink. Wink.

Forever yours,

"Cute without the E (Cut From the Team)"

Dearest The Internets,

Hello, my darling! How glad I am to see you again.

Nothing new to report 'round these parts. Currently sitting around anxiously awaiting tonight's episode of Ugly Betty. (♥ x infinity!) Yeah, on a Friday lame am I?

Anyway, I wanted to come and talk about how repulsive my outfit was for today. I'm not a big fan of "Casual Fridays" because if you ask me its an excuse for some people to dress like lazy unattractive slobs. And let me tell you, I  felt like a lazy unattractive slob today. As you may know (maybe?) I have two jobs. One of them is at a movie theatre on the weekends and I wear a uniform there. The other job is at an elementary school. Ahem.

So today, Friday, I wore a school polo with a black dickies pinstripe pencil skirt. I'm sure you're thinking that doesn't sound so bad, but listen.  The polo is hunter green and it definitely doesn't go with the skirt. And to make it even worse, I wore gray leggings under it. Not tights, LEGGINGS. And my favourite most accessible pair of army green Chucks. I did wear a cute hat  but it was unfortunately lost in the mess of horrible outfit, gross hair, no make-up.

Yeah.....I was what you call a hot-ass-mess. Yikes! I'm not proud of it, either. Some days just call for being ugly, I guess?

Well, Internets, I better go now that you've had a little giggle at my expense. I just stuffed myself silly with Taco Bell and I feel slightly toxic and barf-y. Yum?
