Have No Fear...I'm Still Here!

Hi All! I promise that I'm still here and planning on writing an actual post very very soon. I got back from vacation a couple weeks ago, and was in a bit of a late summer funk all last week. Then today, because I've been at work for 2 months (really can't believe that it's been that long) I had my first performance review today. It went really well but I obviously have a TON I have to work on and I really need to kick it up and get into gear before my next review in a month. So that's just a quick glimpse of what's been going on lately, but I really do promise I'll do a real post soon...hopefully this week. So, sorry for the lack of posting lately and...Stay Tuned!

Read this book...NOW!

Ok so seriously you all need to stop reading this post and run to your nearest Boarders/Barnes and Nobles/Library/ whatever and read this book:

Have any of you heard of this book? The movie (with Zac Efron who looks AMAZING) Charlie St. Cloud is based on it, and it's seriously one of the best books I've ever read. It's about a guy who looses his brother in a tragic car crash, and suddenly develops this "gift" to not only see him but others who have not yet moved on to Heaven. He also meets a girl, Tess, and well...there's a GIANT twist that I'm not going to spoil but I totally didn't see it coming. Based on the trailer for the movie I don't know how much of that twist they're going to address in the movie, but it looks good either way. This book is a really short read and I know you all will LOVE it!

This is the trailer for the movie (which I can't wait to see!)

Also on a totally random note, is anyone else out there excited for Weeds to start? I saw this preview yesterday and can't WAIT!

I love that all of the Botwins are on the road and I think it's going to be really funny to see where they end up. Have a good Wednesday night everyone!

My New Haircut

Obviously it's a pretty slow day in my life if I'm posting about my hair haha, but a couple of you asked to see a picture of it so here it is:

Totally not a great picture of me but oh well. In other news...I'm going to CHICAGO tomorrow!! AHHH I am so so excited. A couple of my friends and I are having a mini reunion (even though we've only been graduated for two months ha) and on Saturday we're seeing Tom Petty! It's going to be an amazing weekend and I can't wait. So I hope that you all have a fantastic weekend yourself and I'll be back on Monday.

Oh and b/c the title of this post totally reminded me of this, here's "my new haircut." Do you all remember this? I haven't seen it for awhile but it still cracks me up haha.

What I'm Loving Right Now

I was going to post this last night but it rained so our cable and internet went out (which makes perfect sense right?) Anyway there's a bunch of things that I'm kind of obsessed with right now and since I'm too lazy to upload pictures I thought I'd share them with you! So without further ado here we go:

First off is True Blood. Um how great is this season so far? I'm absolutely OBSESSED with Eric this season, and Bill's plot line is actually interesting, although I don't believe for a second that he's not in love with Sookie. My only complaint is that Eric and Sookie ACTUALLY need to get together, and if they have another freaking dream sequence about it I'm going to scream. My other complaint is that I think Tara is now one of the most annoying/useless characters on the show and I wish they would do more with her character...although after seeing the previews for next week that might happen.

Chicago! I'm going there this weekend to meet up with friends and see Tom Petty and I am SO SO excited. Friday seriously can't come soon enough!

So obviously everyone loves Friends including me, but I haven't actually watched the show in forever until I put it on last night while I was falling asleep. Man I forgot how funny this show is! I'm watching season 3 right now and it's the perfect thing to watch at night.

Rice pudding, more specifically rice pudding from Trader Joes. Wow this stuff is SO yummy, and althought it's not the best, at 130cal per serving it's not the worst thing in the world for you. In a broder sense I'm also in love with Trader Joes in general and (along with the West Side Market) am probably going to make it my go to grocery store.

So who cares that this is almost half a months rent. This is the most AMAZING pbag I've ever seen and I want to make it mine NOW. Hmmmm maybe it'll go on sale eventually? One can hope haha.

So those are just a couple things that I'm obsessed with right now...what are you all loving?

A Lazy Dazy Weekend

After the craziness that was my 4th of July weekend (I swear I'll post that recap eventually) I was actually really happy to have a weekend to do absolutely nothing. Friday my roommate and I stayed in and got REALLY good Indian food from this hole in the wall place in Ohio City. We usually don't agree on what to watch on TV but finally found Miracle which we both love. On Saturday I went to try a new salon to get my hair cut and colored because it was in HORRIBLE shape. I don't know about all of you, but I tend to stick with my hair dresser for a while so I was really nervous to try someone new, but she turned out to be fantastic! The salon was great too and everyone was so nice I would totally recommend it to anyone and can't wait to go back again soon.

Last night my roommate and another friend tried a new Vietnamese restaurant that was delish, and then went out for some margs before calling it a night. Today we went to lunch it Little Italy before hitting the beach in Bay Village. The beach was WAYY crowded and the sand was kinda gross but it was so nice to be by the water on this gorgeous day, and to lay out. So that was my WAY boring but relaxing weekend. What did you all do?

Rah Rah Rah

I was going to take the chance tonight to recap on seriously the best weekend EVER but I'm postponing that post because I just got sucked into one of my favorite things ever: Cheerleader Nation.

Does anyone else remember this show? It aired the summer before I started college and documented the Dunbar varsity cheerleaders as they tried to win their third national championship in a row (I don't remember if they ended up winning it or not.) I was absolutely ADDICTED to this show and completely freaked when I found that it was on tonight. So now instead of going to bed so I don't end up falling asleep at work (like I almost did today) I'm absolutely glued to the tv.

Thinking about my addiction to this show reminds me of other movies/tv shows I love about cheerleaders, such as:


Anyone else have kinda a weird addiction to these type of shows or is it just me?

Happy 4th of July Weekend!

How can it be the 4th of July already? I feel like the summer has just started, and now I realize that I've been here/work for almost a MONTH now and this weekend marks the (kindof) halfway point of summer. After work tomorrow I'm headed down to see friends and have an amazing time this weekend. I'll be back on Monday with a recap! What are all of your plans this weekend? Since I won't be blogging this weekend have a very very happy 4th of July everyone!
