from the lakes of minnesota to the hills of tennessee

i’ve never been more happy for a monday holiday.

& it’s time for monday confessions.

[one] i kind of wanted to cry last night when dale jr. ran out of gas on the last lap, in turn 4, while winning the coca cola 600. i mean really. bad things just keep happening to him 😦 & i feel like he deserves a win with his new perspective & attitude this year.

[two] some crazy showed me a picture of his car at the race. i guess trying to impress me? well it didn’t. & the funny thing was it was a real picture, not on his phone or anything. i mean who carries a real picture of their CAR around?

[three] i LOVE LOVE LOVE how patriotic nascar still is.

[four] i’ve never seen a flyover as amazing as the one at the race last night. that stealth bomber was insanely cool & creepily quiet at the same time.

[five] i just love nascar.


summer down in galveston

i’m a little jealous of pippa’s wardrobe.

pippa dress & leather jacket

love that two-toned dress.

you’re better off if you don’t ask why

last week i was wayyyy too busy for thankful thursday.

but i’m jumping back in this week with julia & jamie.

[one] i’m thankful for band-aids to cover up my huge blister on my foot so i don’t feel like screaming all the time.

[two] i’m thankful for my sweet grandparents who kept annie girl last weekend when i went to florida.

[three] things that make me laugh (reference the picture below).

[four] i’m thankful for being busy. it’s tiring but i like it better than not being busy, helps keep my mind occupied.

[five] i’m thankful for my dad who is taking my car to be serviced for me because i HATE doing it myself.

everything was slipping right out of our hands

been a little mia lately.

it’s busy around here these days with my internship, work at school, school & everything else going on.

but being busy is good for me, especially right now.

i managed to squeeze in 5 miles yesterday but in the process i rubbed a blister on the arch of my foot (yeah, didn’t know that was possible) that’s almost 2 inches long.

wearing shoes hurts so bad right now 😦

i want to go to the beach sooooo bad right now!

but i’m off to my internship, then school.

& tonight i’m meeting corrine to see pat green at speedstreets 🙂

a lot like a tragedy

you know what it does to me to see your number on the phone

maybe my interpretation is completely skewed.

maybe i went about that whole thing wrong?

maybe i shouldn’t have “agreed” to breaking up because i was trying to do what was best for the other person, not myself.

maybe i should have fought from the beginning.

maybe i shouldn’t have been so naive to think nothing would change when the other person moved 4 hours away.

maybe i shouldn’t have counted on them so much.

maybe i should have lived my life more instead of trying to make them happy.

maybe i should have demanded a little more respect.

maybe i should have done a lot of things.

but i didn’t.

& i’ve let someone completely play games with my emotions, time after time after time.

i wasn’t born yesterday.

but i fall for it each time.

so i cried (yeah, i wrote that, it’s out there, i haven’t let myself cry over this in forever, but i did).

& i’m writing this post so i remember not to be so dumb in the future.

& i’m figuring out how to meet ian somerhalder because i want to marry him.

& i’m picking everything back up & keeping busy.

because that’s what i do.

& hey, the past is just practice, right?

how do you like me now

monday confessions!

[one] i’ve turned the guest bedroom into my closet.

[two] i’m not sure i rested for more than 5 minutes this past weekend.

[three] i’m in love with my new sam edelman sandals.

[four] although i’m going to be super busy & running around for the next few months, i’d rather be busy than not.

[five] i might just have to give in & drink coffee during the week again.
