Oh the quirks in life...

So Noah and the Whale pretty much sums up my Summer in a nutshell. This song makes me happy. Everything about this band is quirky from there lyrics to their attire. That in general makes me happy. I am easy to please and this pleases me. Enough said.

Sadly enough YouTube decided to be all high and mighty and make strict copy rights on their videos. BUT if you find happiness in this song such as I do, YouTube 5 Years Time by Noah and the Whale and watch their official music video.

So I pretty much have been the biggest slacker when it comes to keeping updated on my posts. It is amazing how Summer can come along and all organization, responsibilities, etc. slip right out the door. The next thing I know is that four lazy relaxing months have gone by, Fall returns, and here I am left in a total state of rehabilitation forcing myself back into reality of school and work...yuck! Okay, okay so ya ya school sucks, works a drag, but life goes on! Now that I have complained about the negatives lets move on to the positives:) Autumn time is here and happens to be my absolute most FAVORITE season (sorry Winter, Spring, and Summer Autumn is kicking your trash when it comes to popularity votes in my book)


* Nostalgic feelings return and excitement runs through my veins as a brand new start to school  begins (forget the school work) you know what im talking about. It has been the same since elementary, wake up, get ready with your wardrobe already planned out for the next two weeks, go to class the first day, evaluate the professors you will sadly be stuck with for the rest of the semester, scope the room checking out the hot new guy sitting a few rows down from you, football season starts, your social network seems to run crazy wild, each night falling asleep with a grin on your face for having once again another great day.

* Walking hand in hand with your new found crush, wearing your favorite worn in pair of leather boots and slouched sweater, taking in the slight chill of fresh Autumn air into your lungs hoping the moment can last just a while longer.

*Racking up gigantic piles of leaves with my little sisters, in pursuit of only making a mess again the moment I have finished making a beautifully arranged pile of yellow orange and red, as cute Sophie and Macy jump from my favorite front yard tree into the stack of leaves below, just as my older siblings and I had once done with my grandpa. What other adventures happen with my little sisters? Halloween!! My cousins and I were hardcore trick-or-treaters growing up, there was no returning home until our bags were fully stuffed to our satisfaction. 
* Coming home from a busy day of school and smelling my favorite pumpkin spice candles filling every room in the house making me think of our family visits to the pumpkin patches, walk into the living room to find my mom reading a good book by the fire, leave the room for a moment only to return to join my mom with a book in my hands ready to read beside her 
*When the excitement has worn off, a month of school has gone bye and everyone is settled in there new found schedules, my sister Ali and I turn to one another and slowly become inseparable homebodies together taking in every last second of enjoying the last bits of Fall. Taking our last Sunday walks along the boulevard and long car rides singing along to our random playlists of music, making sure EVERY tradition of the season is celebrated in our house NO EXCEPTIONS, ending our days with yummy hot chocolate from the Corner 22 gas station down the road.
The truth is, life simply goes by way too fast and there is no easy way of slowing it down, so what do you do?? Easy, soak it up taking every last bit of crazyness life hands to you:)

my little sisters never fail at putting a smile on my face.
though we may fight, they ALWAYS forgive me.
if ever I am bored, I have someone to tease, equalling a guaranteed source of entertainment.
Macy Moo (the one being attacked by a dog) is my number one cuddle bug for sunday movie nights

Absolutely love this song, Zee Avi your my girl!


After a long weekend spending time with my beautiful Delta Gee sistas, it killed me to see emotions running high while witnessing the most amazing girls tear up over boys and relationships. This leads me into my inspired blog of the week

 Do you ever wish you could go back to being little again, where it was okay to be vulnerable and innocent and you could dream the impossible because in your mind anything was possible?...well from a very young age, I truly from the bottom of my heart, believed that I was a princess (no really, just ask my parents). I have pictures wearing a new princess crown in everyone of my birthday pictures. Along with that, I will admit that my childhood consisted of me living in a la-la-land of daydreams, pretending I was an indian princess kidnapped by another tribe, orphan Annie trying to run away from the evil Mrs. name it and I am sure to have acted it out. However, by the end of the day as I would turn on my nightlight and crawl into bed, I would think about how the story of my own fairytale would unravel someday...

There are always the stories in movies and books where one special girl receives an invitation to a ball, goes to her wardrobe and finds the most beautiful gown to wear

At the ball she meets her prince charming, they kiss and sparks fly

Next thing you know they fall in love and ride off in an enchanted carriage.

Well...although I wish things worked that way, sadly enough some girls have to deal with the Grimm brothers version of a fairytale, encountering the evil stepmothers, wicked witches, poisoned apple kind of situations. In other words, dealing with the times you wait for the phone to ring in hopes it will be that really cute boy on the other line, though time passes and you still haven't heard from him...

Waiting by the window ceil for your Romeo to come but at the last second his course of action changes and he is off to find is new Juliet... 

heartbroken and confused, wondering what went wrong and wear to turn to...

Over the years as I have gone through the awkward stages of junior high where it was cool to "go out" which normally lasted for about a week, then on to high school envying the couples who dated for what seemed to be their entire high school years, and now on to college where everyone is trying to figure out who they are and what they are looking for; I have come to realize that fairytales do not always happen at once, they can take years of fighting off the poisoned apples of heartbreak and rejection before prince charming comes along to save the day. Living in the moment and surrounding myself by my sisters and close friends, enjoying life as it is and making the best of it is where happiness is found. Someday, somewhere, on an unexpected occasion I might just happen to bump into my prince charming. Although my fairytale story is not complete yet, a sea of princes are out there waiting to be found.

Starting Fresh

   Looks like this is my very first post, and since I am new to the life of blogging I have contemplated exactly what I should write about in this blog. After some thought, I realized that I don't want to be narrowed down and focused on just one category. Instead, why not keep it fun and random?? In this blog I plan on writing about my likes, dislikes, thoughts, stories name it and I will most likely blog about it. So, for starters, today while I was in my sociology class and beyond boredom I spent my precious time browsing the web. Here are just a few of the many things I came across that caught my attention....

One thing you should know about me is that I am obsessed with fashion. Ever since I was little I have taken an interest in clothes and design. I use to get in trouble for making marks and measurements on my American Girl Dolls (so I might have used permanent markers that never washed off their knee and waste lines....but at the time I could not comprehend why my mom got upset with me...I was only trying to make new pretty ball gowns for my dolls, whats so wrong with that??). Anyways, this dress captured my attention and is going on my list of LIKE's for the day. Its simply cute, fun, and girly, just what I like!

Something about this photograph reminded me of Pride and Prejudice, which happens to be both my all time favorite classic book and movie therefore making me LIKE list today. This photograph also makes me desperately want to travel back to Europe...who knows if this was even taken somewhere in Europe, but what the heck who cares its still beckoning me to pack my bags and and dad I am ready anytime you are...

To be quite honest with you, I am not really sure why I posted this other than the fact that it is legit and I love the girls dresses...agh to live in the 50's....if only.

If any of you like funfetti cake mix then you should like this picture just as much as I do...enough said.

Music video of the day. I can not get enough of this song, not only is this song beautiful, Ingrid Michaelson + Sara Bareilles together = perfection
