I've Been Tagged!

It's Tuesday!
I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far!

The other day I was tagged in a post by the lovely Carley of Suburban Sweets for a question post.
If you haven't already, you should deff. head over and check out her blog! :)

For this post I am to answer 11 questions and also tell you 11 things you may not know about me.
So here it goes!

1. What is your profession?
I am a full time student and a part time student worker in two different offices. I work in Internal Audit and also Academic Advising. 

2. How would you describe your style?
Laid back and comfortable. I love wearing sweats or gym shorts and t-shirts. Very rarely do I dress up. I mean, lately I have been for all the wedding festivities, but normally I am in sweats, a t-shirt and no make-up. 

3. What one make-up product can you not live without?
Mascara! I mean it just puts the whole look together. You can have on some killer eye make-up but it will NOT look as great if you do not have some great mascara on.
The kind I use

4. If you could be besties with one celebrity, who would it be?
Wow, that is a hard one. For a full list check out my "People I wish I was friends with" Pinterest board. But the two people I would love to be friends with would have to be Kate Middleton and Selena Gomez ... or Sophia Bush ... or Carrie Underwood.
Can I just be friends with them all please?

5. What is your dream vacation?
Oh my! I would love love love to go to Bora Bora! I mean just look at it!

6. What magazines do you subscribe to?
Just one. Cosmo. :)

7. If you could have any special talent (that you don't currently have), what would it be?
To sing! I love singing, I just suck at it. :)
And then if I could sing I would go on American Idol, meet Scotty Mecreery and he would instantly fall in love with me ;-)

8. What is your favorite breakfast food?
Easy. French Toast!

9. If you could do anything, what is your dream job?
To be an actress or a famous singer. Ha! :)
Or a Sports Reporter such as Erin Andrews. Love her!

10. What is your guilty pleasure?
S'mores. I even have a s'mores maker. Is that bad? I just love them! I will cook them in the microwave and I could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I was able to. Sadly, my body doesn't like that idea.

Now 11 things you might not know about me:

1. I hate frogs. I am soooo terrified of them, it is unreal. Don't ask why.
2. I drive a 2000 grandam and it drives great!
3. I really very much enjoy fishing and bow fishing.
4. But I really very much hate bugs or being hot.
5. I have tiny feet.
6. I can be loud. Very loud at times. Actually, almost all the time.
7. I have a core group of friends from high school and I wouldn't trade them for anything. Okay, maybe a few of them ;-) ... kidding :)
8. My nails and toe nails always have to be painted.
9. I hate wear tennis shoes
10. I have recently taken my heel collection from 1 pair to 7 pairs in less than a month
11. I once wrecked a dirt bike and almost cut off my toe. But it's still there :)

Now to tag some lovely ladies! I hope you join in on the fun! If not, well ... it's okay :)

Let me introduce you to...

Hello! Happy happy Monday! :)
 In less than one week I will be hanging out with my family and celebrating Shelby's wedding! Yayy!
 One thing about my family, we love getting together.
And when we are together, we know how to have a good time.
There is never a dull moment with us.
Just last night some of us were sitting around outside and everyone was talking at the same time, but we knew exactly what was going on.
We have a big family and we are scattered all around the United States.
I like to say we "own" the U.S. :)
 But nevertheless, we are always able to get somewhere for a wedding or a birthday celebration.

Katey's Wedding
 Cousin Camp one year
 After Ben and Heather's wedding
My graduation party
Cam and Jade's wedding
Another year of Cousin Camp
Crab hunting
Grandma Barb's bday
Family softball game
Cam and Jade's wedding
The lady who started it all and her children .. we are just missing Robby
Some of the girls at Katey's wedding
Some of the girls after Ben and Heather's wedding
Some of the girls before Amber's wedding

 I love my family. 
I would not trade any of them for the world.
Each and every one of them are kind, caring, giving people. 
If you know any of them, you have been truly blessed in your life.
They are some of the greatest people I have ever known and I am so glad I can call them my family.

Thanks for reading! :)

But it also means Sunday Social day! 
Yay! :) 
So go on over to Ashley or Neely's blog to link on up!

Sunday Social
I hope you all had a great weekend! More of mine to come tomorrow :)
Here are this weeks questions:

1. What is your favorite song?
Oh man, I have no idea. 
Had you asked me about 8 years ago I would have instantly said "Hey Ya" by Outkast ... is it weird I remember that far back? 
Now I would have to say "Good Girl" by Carrie Underwood

"Dancin Away With My Heart" by Lady A

2. What is your favorite singer/band?
Gah, these questions are intense! ;-)
I just love so many!
Obviously, Carrie Underwood and Lady A
Also, Luke Bryan, Scotty Mccreery, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, The Pistol Annies, Jana Kramer, Kate Voegele, Selena Gomez, Blake Shelton, Adam Lavine, Tim McGraw, Josh Turner, Toby Keith, Kellie Pickler, The Band Perry, Montgomery Gentry, Rihanna, T Swift, Ke$ha, Beyonce, Frankie Valli
Yeah, you get the picture :)

3. What is your theme song/song that best describes your life?
"Hell on Heels" by The Pistol Annies

Joking :)

This is a hard one, let me come back to it :)

4. What songs put you in a good mood?
This highly depends on my mood, but most times anything by Carrie Underwood or Miranda Lambert can put me in a great mood ... or Luke Bryan or Jason Aldean ;-)

5. What is your favorite road-trip music?
I don't really have an exact favorite. I just turn on my Songza app and play my 00 #1 Hits or MTV Total Request Live or any country playlist!

6. What song are you embarrassed to admit you love?
Anything by N'Sync or The Backstreet Boys for sure.

Yeahhhh :)

Now it is your turn to go link-up! Head on over and do the same!
And if you are stopping by here from the link-up, hello and welcome! Stay awhile :)

Thanks for reading! :)

Current Crush anddd Meet & Tweet!

Today I am doing two link-ups!
Have I told you lately how much I loveeee link-ups?! :)

The first one is the Meet & Tweet found here
Basically what you do is follow the co-sponsors on Twitter then add your Twitter link to the link up and find more fun people to follow on Twitter! :) Easy enough, right?

Current Crush Thursdays

The second one I am doing for today is called Current Crush which is happening over here!
For this one you just say what you are crushing on this week then link up and see what other bloggers are crushing on! :)

This week and the past few weeks I have been crushing hard on The Vampire Diaries. 
I know, I am a dork, but I seriously cannot get enough of this show! 
It's like Twilight on steroids! 
Fo reals. 
Yeah I just said that.

In short Elena loves Stefan, who loves her back. But he also has a brother Damon who is in love with Elena. But he is a bad guy (well, sometimes). And Elena has a friend Bonnie who is figuring out her witchy powers and her other friend Caroline is just a control-freak but I love her anyways. And Elena's brother Jeremy is all sorts of messed up but turns into this really nice looking young man by season 3. 

Anywho, watch it! You won't be sad you did. 
Unless you hate romance, and vampires, and some violence and drama ... 
then don't watch it. 

Thanks for reading! :)
And happy Thursday!

Wedding Fever!

Happy Wednesday! Wednesday means the week is half way over!
Well said.

Lately my family and I have been working our little tails off for the upcoming wedding next Saturday! 
So while we are doing all of this I have been planning my wedding in my head. 
Even though I have forever to plan one. 
Considering I am not out of college, 
nor do I have a ring on my hand.

Thanks to Pinterest I have been able to plan almost every aspect of my non-existent wedding. 
And I decided to let you all in on what my future wedding will be like. 
Aren't you so excited? :)

I would like whoever proposes to me to have a secret photographer to capture the moment :)

via via 
  I love love love the bridesmaids dresses on the left!
And I will be taking a picture like the one on the right from the movie Bridesmaids!
I love sparkles. But I cannot decide between a big dress or a slim fit dress. Good thing I have a while.

via via 
 I want a picture of the first reaction of my future hubby.
I also want to write a letter to my future husband and read them together but not see each other.
 That boquet is gorgeous. 
And I love the simplicity of the white decorations.
That cake is amazeballs. 
And I WILL have sparklers at my wedding :)

I'm not to picky, am I? ;-)
You can check out more of my wedding ideas on my Pinterest wedding board here!

What are some things you know for sure you want at your wedding?
Or if you have already gotten married, what was your favorite part?

Thanks for reading! :)

My past week ... in pictures of course!

Hello! I am sooo happy I decided to link-up for Sunday Social again a few days ago because I have gained some more lovely followers and I have found some more awesome blogs! 
Yay! :) 
I love finding new blogs, it has become one of my favorite things to do! :)

Anyways on to what I have been doing the past week beside checking out great new blogs!

1. Hobby Lobby must not know what time of year it is. They were setting out their CHRISTMAS decorations already!
2. Ethan, Grandma and I enjoying a fun filled day of shopping!
3. A beautiful sunset!
4. This guy was just walking around the mall like it was nbd.

I very much enjoy riding four wheelers with my main squeeze :)

This weekend was my hometowns carnival and parade.
Ethan loved watching everything but he did not enjoy the bagpipes or the fire trucks.

This was the first time little Ethan man got in the big pool this year and he LOVED it! :)

My boss returned from her trip to D.C. and brought me back a cupcake from Georgetown Cupcakes, better known as the TLC show D.C. Cupcakes! 
It was really good!

Tatum and Percy just chillin out in the kitchen :)

Carrie's friend brought her daughter over for us to see. 
Isn't she a doll?
Andddd she loved me, do not let her expression fool you :)
Carrie, who loves cats (gross), loved her little shirt that had cats on it

So that is what I have been up to lately! 
Oh and getting ready for the big wedding coming up in less than two weeks! Yay for family and weddings! I cannot wait! 
And I will let you all see the decorations after the wedding is over and the bride has given me permission :)

Thanks for reading! :)
