i can't take another 3 months of this cold. :( i'm ready for sunshine, tans, cubs games, swimsuits, bonfires, boats, & adorable little outfits like this one.
& on that note, i'm seriously considering moving to hawaii/the caribbean/a beach & getting a job working at some resort, sarah marshall/blue crush style, for a year.

Sunday Night Confessional

i'm watching couples retreat.
i heard it was bad but it's been pretty hilar so far. i love vince vaughn.
i recently learned a very valuable lesson.
when a guy tells you he's not looking for a relationship, he means it. don't waste your time.
i'm so ready to move into an apt downtown.
life is wonderful at home, but i'm ready to get my independence back.
i have no exciting updates this week.
blah blah blah boring.
but i do have a prayer request.
my aunt carol lee is in the hospital again. i'm so sad and frustrated for her.
please pray that god heals her.

Sunday Night Confessional

lately i've been tempted to up & move to california, live on the beach, & start over.
sigh... if only.
i. adore. this outfit.
like it, love it, gotta have it! i might have to buy that little green military jacket, even if it is from delia's. ha! & those pricey steve madden boots.
this is funny!
i especially love when they show the monkey... statue.. ? i'm laughing just thinking about it.
i'm obsessed with these iosselliani rings.
i'll take one of each, please.
can't wait for my lunch date with jamie this week!
yay for reconnecting with long distance friends.
ugh... another eventful.. interesting weekend.
that's all for now.

& happy birthday to katie!!!!
cute as a button.
loves you!

"You catch more bees with honey than with vinegar..."

my nana always said that.
and it's true.
even when you're angry, hurt, upset, or just in a bad mood, you are far more likely to get your way by being kind.
but that being said, i've been in a terrible, depressing, utterly miserable mood lately. nothing in my life seems to be going right - not the least of which is my "romantic life," if i can even refer to it as that. the guy i was talking to/hanging out with/who knows clearly doesn't want a relationship - now or quite possibly ever - and it's just a little bit of a sucker punch. don't say one thing to me & then do another.
last week when sara & cindy were in town, we went to tracy's to meet up with a bunch of my friends. granted it was 70 decibels past bearable, i had friends in town, he had just come from a wake, excuses excuses excuses, but he didn't even talk to me. he didn't come over and sit by me once that night. not cute & flirty. not friendly & fun. what happened?
i've been thinking about what to say when i see him at taryn/jt/aaron's apt party downtown tomorrow (which i might not even get to until almost midnight because of f'ing work & unreliable people... ughhhhh, whole nother story). part of me wants to bitch him out, cry, sulk, but that is not attractive & i absolutely won't let myself sink to that level.
so help a sista out!
do i...
a) act friendly & nonchalant but jokingly say something like "well i'm glad to see you're talking to me tonight." *bitchy/flirty smile* ??
b) act friendly & as non-psycho as possible but eventually ask him what the deal is?
a scarier, more direct approach.
c) be super flirty with the other boys & not give him the time of day?
unfortunately, i know myself well enough to know that until i get answers or some kind of closure, this whole situation will be on my mind.
wahhhhh, why can't i just forget it & move on?
i know i said the hair question was important (i'm still waiting for answers, by the way.....), but this one is really important.
i need advice & lots of it.
so please advise,
because i am clearly no love expert.

Mah Weave

i don't have a weave.
but i do have a very important question for you.
over the past week, i've been itching to get a haircut. i almost just walked into the salon without an appt twice this week. the thought of getting an impulse cut & then regretting it for weeks kept me from going through with it, but i think it is time for a cut - now i just have to decide what to do.
since all (or at least most?) of you little readers have known me for a long time, you know the various looks i've donned. lets take a trip down memory lane...
so what should i do??
leave it really long but trim the layers to healthify it?
chop it shorter & lose the california wave look that i've been loving so much over the past 6 months?
go more jennifer aniston-esque?
back to the bangs??
long ones! not making that mistake again... woof.
help please!
