It's the Most Wonderful Time...

One of these days I'll get back to writing for you guys. But today, I wrote a little post for Rachel @ {simple.little.joys}

Go read it (here). 

It's about the most wonderful time of the year! We all know what that is, right?

Looks or Money?

As I was walking through the bar this weekend with 3 friends (one engaged friend, another friend, and her boyfriend) they told me I needed to find a sugar daddy.

Their suggestion made me realize...I'm a bit shallow. But not when it comes to money. Give me looks over money any day. Puh-lease.

Now, I would never stay in a relationship for looks or money...but if I was asked on a date by someone I wasn't really into, I would be more likely to give the hot guy a chance over the rich guy.

Britney knows what I'm talking about. Wouldn't you rather make out with a hot guy than be given expensive necklaces by a not-as-hot guy?

Well, I would.

One Year Ago...

It was about one year ago when I received a phone call that changed my life. Okay, not really my life...but it sure changed my blog audience! 

I was sitting exactly where I am now (yeah, my daily life hasn't changed much in a year) when I had the most awkward phone conversation ever.

Then I blogged about it. Then I met all of you. And him. And we gave away free shit.

The day I originally posted [awkward pause], my blog got thousands of hits. Yes, thousands. That's plural. I had 38 followers, which is more than I ever thought I would have. Now I have almost 200. (Let's get it to 200 soon, k guys?)

I'm so glad you could join me on the creepy journey that is my life. 

Here's to another year at Faye'sbook!

Always a bridesmaid...

Always a bridesmaid, never a bride? Such a stupid saying. We'll all be brides one day...when the time is right. In the meantime, let's have a blast being bridesmaids!

After a very romantic proposal from her boyfriend fiancé, Nathan, my dear friend Lindsay and I had this text message exchange (while she was on a champagne high).

Linds: Nathan and I are engaged!!!! 
me: So exciting!!! Congratulations!!! 
Linds: Thanks you have to be a bridesmaid. Have to!!! 
me: Yes, I have to be a bridesmaid. 
(read: you better make me a bridesmaid, missy.)

A few days later, after publishing her wedding website, she said to me, "I did ask you to be a bridesmaid didn't I? I guess if I didn't, you can see that you are!"

It really is a blessing to be such a big part of someone's special day. I can't wait for all the parties and the showers and of course the wedding! It's only 339 days away!

Congratulations to Lindsay & Nathan!

My Leading Man

So, everyone knows that I'm creepy. Just think about how my blog got popular. Because I'm creepy, right? And awkward. Creepy and awkward...that's my charm.

Rachel and I were discussing my creepy awkward crush the other day (he's not creepy and awkward...the extent of the crush I have on him is) and we decided that eventually, he will realize that we're supposed to have an epic romance. Once that romance unfolds, I will write a book about it. Then, it will be turned into a movie. When asked who would play the leading man, I didn't think twice. Vinnie Woolston.

Actually, Vinnie, maybe you and I can just have this epic romance instead. Call me.
