I Finally Did It, Everyone!!!


I got a puppy!!!! He's a 9 week old black lab and his name is Ziggy. I got him on Wednesday night. I actually found him on craigslist.com. I've been wanting a puppy for sooo long and black labs are my favorite! I grew up with labs so they hold a very special place in my heart.

The last few nights have been a straight NIGHTMARE though. We're trying to get him to sleep in the cage at night but he cries and is sooo loud and obnoxious. He's definitely getting better at going to the bathroom outside though, which I'm sooo thankful for.

Yesterday was Sam's birthday and he was taking care of Ziggy all day. He hadn't slept at all the night before because he was worried the dog would get up and shit somewhere or chew something up.

As I type this, he just pooped outside!!! So I just want to say thank you craigslist and thank you Tracy!!! (the woman that sold me Ziggy).

Any suggestions on how to train a dog?

Wanna Know Something Embarrassing?


I have psoriasis! And let me tell you, it's horrible!

I think I have a pretty mild case and in the last 2 months it has got a lot better. I use to have these scabby looking blotches all over my legs, but now they're gone. When I sweat I get blotches and these little white bumps on my hand and arm. They don't go away for like an hour after my bodys cold down.

It's pretty embarrassing and such a pain in the ass. I'm not sure if the issues when I sweat have anything to do with psoriasis but I don't know what else it could be or how to get rid of it.

If anyone else has psoriasis or eczema or anything like that, let me know what you use as treatments or if you've found a cure :)

Movie & Inspiration


I just got done watching this movie finally! My family has been telling me all about it since Christmas. I really liked it and as a blogger, it made me jealous and envious.

As a blogger you want people to like and be interested in what you're writing. You want feedback and followers and all of that! It's easy when your blog is about one thing, like cooking, crafts, music, celeb news, ect. because anyone that reads it is going to be interested in that topic. That's kind of why I started my other blog. Because I wanted to write a blog that has some kind of structure. I know that anyone that is interested in love and love stories will like my new blog. I've given up on this blog because I know that it's all over the place. I say that I'm going to add new features to this blog like a music video of a song that I'm really feeling every week or my weekly fortune cookie, but I can never stick to it.

So I'm sorry that this blog is all over the place. I think I'm planning another new blog, but I'll let you know when I've figured out what the topic will be. But if you haven't already checked out my new blog, go take a look at http://moderndaylovetale.blogspot.com

No One is Exempt From Tragedy

This past weekend a guy that I graduated high school with was killed. I believe it happened late Saturday night. It's always so crazy when someone you know dies, but when they're killed it's even crazier.

But I'm telling you, this couldn't have happened to a nicer guy and family. That's what makes it so sad. Yeah, he might not have been involved with the right group of people but he was a very nice person. You never think something like that could or ever would happen to you, but infact, it could. No one is exempt from tragedy, heart break, or death. It sucks, but it's true.

So on that note, cherish everyone you love, let yourself be happy, and don't waste time being angry over small things that don't matter. Life is too short, and as far as you know, it could be shorter than you think. 

I Hate Asking for Help, But...


I've always wanted a half sleeve of tattoos. I'm going to start sketching it up and I have an idea of what I want, but I'm not sure if it's going to work.

I need to find a way to represent months in a kind of simple way. In a way that has nothing to do with birthdays. For example I DON'T want to represent months in the form of birthstone colors, birth month flowers, or zodiac signs. I really want to use flowers but there's no listing of flowers that have a devoted month.

I want to get a half sleeve of flowers that represent months that have a significant meaning to me. But flowers might be out of the question if I can't come up with anything. Flowers are so femanine and I like that.

If anyone has any ideas, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks guys!!!

Gone Fishin'


ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOVIES EVERRRR!!! I think I'm just a big fan of Joe Pesci.

I got the movie from netflix and it got here today and I'm soooo excited to watch it cuz I haven't seen it in a few years. If you haven't seen it, I definitely recommend it.

Girl Fights!!!


I wish I had a nickle for every time I heard a girl say that she has a lot of guy friends because girls are too dramatic. Like, what is it with us girls that really stops us from having some girlfriends? Is it just our competitiveness? Do we just want to be the best looking and funniest and most desirable?

All through high school I had a couple close girlfriends but not many. When I was in beauty school, that's when I really started getting along with girls because we're all kinda older, and we all had something in common. We all hated drama. But of course there was still drama. There's always going to be drama when there's girls around.

I do know that there are some girls that have a ton of girlfriends. I just don't know many of those kind of girls.

GRRRRR!!!


Isn't it so frustrating when you're bending over the sink to brush you're teeth and a drop of toothpaste drops into the sink? It's not even like you can just splash water on it and it rinses away. You have to physically like wipe it off the sink or else it will stay there and dry up and be even nastier to get rid of. UGH!

Sorry, just felt like complaining!

Screw Blackberrys!!! Don't be offended!!!


I got verizon and a new phone!!! I ordered the Blackberry Tour on Sunday and it got here yesterday! I spent 45 minutes with it. Trying to figure out how to work it, how to move around, how to add contacts. And I gave up. The shit was too complicated. Sam got a Droid (which is idiot proof), and he had everything set up already.

Sooo, to make a long story short, I went to Verizon, returned my Blackberry and got a Droid also. It's awesome! I love it and the apps are great. The bill is going to be insane every month but we'll talk about that when it gets here.

The only thing wrong with it is that the battery doesn't last very long. But I usually carry my chargers around with me anyway.

Anyone else have a Droid? Any stories? LOL

Ohhhh SHIT!


After my last tanning experience at Sun Bum Tanning, I went to a Hollywood Tans and tried them out last week. I walk in and she's telling me all about the beds and stuff. I can tell that their beds weren't going to be as strong as the last place so I went with the second highest bed again. The receptionist then says to me, "Well the maximum time for that bed is 10 minutes but I think you should go in for only 5 minutes because you're really, really white." Then she starts giggling.

PAUSE

Like I know that you're super young and you can tell that I'm young too but that doesn't mean that you can joke around with me, especially about my paleness. I wanted to be like, "yeah bitch, I'm really really white, and you're really, really ORANGE! So what? Gimme the full 10 minutes!"

But instead I was like, "Umm gimme 7 minutes," and walked away. I should have went in for 10 minutes cuz their beds absolutely suck! And their beds are all stand up and I feel like I'm in a small submarine. It's really weird.

But yeah, I hate when people try to joke with me just cuz we're around the same age and they assume I have a sense of humor.

NOT COOL!

The Reason I Didn't Blog Last Night!!!



I was making my mom this really awesome Mother's Day card!!! I had a bunch of magazines and paper from scrapbooking so I decided to make her a card myself!.. If you haven't got your mom anything I suggest you make a home made card. I wrote a really heart felt letter inside and I know my mom is going to cry when she reads it.

I had to pay $17.00 to send it FedEx though, cuz it was too late to send it through regular mail. As soon as I got finished with my card, the following text was sent to my two younger sisters:

"I just got done making mom the most amazing Mother's Day card, so you better step your game up this year, cuz Halmark ain't gonna cut it sistazzz!!!"

I got a response back from Rachel who is 14. She said that she's painting her a card! I laughed out loud when I read it. I can't wait to see my sisters at the end of the month!!!

What are you guys doing for your mom on Mother's day?

Can't Stand The Heat, Get OUT The Kitchen!!!


So this passed weekend we had the first of many Holy Communion parties to go to. It was a good time though. Got to see a lot of Sam's family. It was soooo freakin' hot outside though.

Me + Heat = no good!!! Thats why I'm so pale. I can't stand to sit out in the hot ass weather.

I think that every weekend in May is taken over by some thing or another. It's insane! Next weekend we have Sam's nephew's communion party. The weekend after that Sam's mom's sister is coming in from Guyana and driving up from D.C. I think the weekend after that there isn't anything going on. We'll probably celebrate Sam's birthday that weekend since we'll be in Pittsburgh the weekend after that.

It was sooo hard getting up this morning and getting ready for work. I didn't think I was going to make it. But tomorrow is Tuesday, we'll see what kinda day it brings.

I hope everyone had a good Monday!!!

I Might Be Getting a Puppy!!!



It's actually a dog that my parents just recently got. They named it Flurry but I like to call it McFlurry. They said it's been chewing up my dad's shoes so if we want it we can have it. I haven't got to meet McFlurry yet but when I do I'll make the decision if I want to take him or not. He's soooo cute so I'll most likely definitely want it.

I've grown up and almost always had a dog, so it's weird to not have one. Sam and I went to Petco today and they have some Kitty Adoption program. I'm allergic to cats but they are sooo cute and I was thinking I'd just take some kinda allergy medicine everyday. LOLLL
