it's AUTUMN!!

I came across a blog the other day via Rachel's blog {which you should all read- it's amazing!}. One post in particular caught my eye. It compares football in the north to football in the south... & it's definitely worth a read! Check it ouuuut:

Football in the South.

I just spent an hour looking at old pictures from college and laughed my butt off the whole entire time!! It really made me realize how much I miss college and how much I miss the people I became close to. Needless to say it got me really pumped up to see everyone this weekend and several more times within the next month! I was going to post some of those pictures, but then I realized picking "only a few" pictures was beyond impossible for me to do. Oh well!

And finally, happy FALL everyone!!! {Does anyone call it "autumn" anymore??}
I love fall for lots of reasons: Halloween, pretty trees, cooler weather, BOOTS, football, leather jackets, the list could go on & on & on & on... Not to mention my shows are finally back on!! Another good thing about fall? Fall back babyyyy! Love gaining that extra hour :)

Forgetful Friday

So I didn't necessarily forget about blogging yesterday... I simply didn't feel like it. But I had to use "forgetful" in the title of this post because I feel super cool using an alliteration, duh! I really don't have too much to say... probably because I just woke up from a nap :).

Jimmy posted a link on Twitter earlier this week that I just have to share! Random Thoughts of People Our Age. I found it funny how I've had so many of these thoughts, & I'm sure most of you have, too! I'll share a few (like, er, 10) of my favorites with you:

5. Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you're going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're crazy by randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.
-I don't know how many times I have done this!! At Wal-Mart, the mall, UAMS, UALR campus looking for the HR office... Pretending to talk on my phone is my go-to cover, until it rings while I'm "talking" on it.

9. There is a great need for sarcasm font.
-Amen! Especially when texting!

11. I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting 90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone's laughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little bit harder (and a millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still the only one who really, really gets it.
-Yep. The Other Sister, Finding Nemo, Ice Age, Tommy Boy...

12. How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?
-Now THAT is a good Q... I just roll mine up like a sleeping bag.

15. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.
-I agreed with this one before I finished reading it.

22. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?
-Sometimes I'll nod and smile... then 10 seconds later ask "What?" one more time.

27. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.
-Morbid, yet true.

35. Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from, this shouldn't be a problem....
-"And one interesting fact about yourself!"

42. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.
-Vain, but you know we all do it.

53. I wonder if cops ever get pissed off at the fact that everyone they drive behind obeys the speed limit.
-And also that no one wants to pass them on the interstate...

I'm glad I woke up when I did... because the UPS guy banging on my door while I was asleep may have caused a heart attack...

TGIThursday, because that means tomorrow is Friday!! :) I've got a few interesting stories for you from this past week:

1. My phone bill last month was a little more than I had expected, and that's an understatement. So I went in to Verizon on Tuesday to check that out & look for mistakes. Records show that I did indeed go over my minutes by a WHOLE LOT. Sweet. (Tori Tedford, I need to add you to my "Friends & Family 5" because your number was all over that call history like white on rice!) Anyway... to the interesting part... There was a couple in there who was checking out next to me (they looked about 18-20 years old). All of a sudden, the boy runs out of the store to get in his girlfriend's car and chase after whoever had just stolen his truck right out of the Verizon parking lot! Right there! Idiot. Makes me wonder if the boy had left it unlocked &/or with the keys in it... that's just asking for someone to take your car!

2. I forgot to mention in my last post that 2 of my best friends have recently gotten engaged!!! This is huuuge news! I am beyond happy for them, & I can't wait for the festivities to begin-- showers, parties, etc. I'm also really excited to be a bridesmaid for both girls! I went from never being a bridesmaid to having 2 gigs within 2 or 3 weeks! I can't wait!! If I had any talent at it, I would be a wedding planner. That's gotta be such a fun job!

3. A few things you [probably] do not know about me:
i. I love the Progressive & Geico commercials. I especially love the Geico commercial where the boss wants to do the little exercise called "I fall and you catch me." It's hilarious! Click here to see it.
ii. I like a good cry every now & then... it makes me feel refreshed!
iii. I love picture messages! I like to send them & I like to receive them. So it only makes sense that I like when people post twitpics.
iv. I haven't read Cosmo magazine in over a year... possibly a year and a half, two.
v. I do this weird thing where I don't eat the last bite of burgers or sandwiches. I don't know why, but I just don't eat it. Unless it's a #1. Original from Schlotzsky's...
Salutations! (Does that word make anyone else think of Charlotte's Web?)

Off-the-Wall Thursday

So in lieu of having long posts every 2 or 3 months, I'm going to try to keep it light and update more often. Granted I just blogged 2 days ago, there's no better time to start "Off-the-Wall Thursday" than on this rainy Thursday. I'm not sure yet what I'll do every Thursday, but I'm going to post something random... outside the ordinary... weird... off-the-wall (hence the name). So for today, I'll leave you with a list of 5 random things about me that you otherwise may not know.

1. I don't normally buy sugary candy. If I'm in need for a little pick-me-up, chocolate is my go-to. Now this doesn't mean I don't like sugary candy-- I wouldn't go that far! Skittles... I like Skittles... I'm somewhat OCD when I eat them, though. I eat the green & the yellow first, because they're my least favorite. Then I eat the purple and the red ones simultaneously, because they just taste good that way. I save the orange ones for last, because I think they taste like orange Tic-Tacs. And I love orange Tic-Tacs.

2. Facebook annoys me sometimes. I hide people from my news feed all the time. I don't necessarily want to de-friend that person, I'm just not interested in keeping up with people on facebook that I don't know very well.

3. That being said, it only makes sense that I ignore a lot of friend requests. If our mutual friends consist of ever sorority girl at the UofA, there's a good chance I won't accept the request. It's not because I'm trying to be mean, but if I don't know you, I don't know you.

4. If I had to pick any beverage (other than water) to drink for the rest of my life, I think I would pick sweet tea. No lemon, please. :)

5. I like to do a little wardrobe cleansing every now & then. I like to go through my drawers and my closet and get rid of the things I don't wear. Out with the old, in with the new!
