This is going to be awkward...

Some of you may make fun of me for needing help in this prediciment
Buttttt I just don't know what to do
Okay, so keep in mind said boy from this post
And how I said I didn't think he would ever talk to me again
Especially since it's been 2 weeks...
Anyways, so last week I was at my usual hang out spot
It's called Wild Country
Don't judge
And I saw this boy I always see on campus
And, like always, thought to myself "he is sooo hot"
Then 5 minutes later I look over at him again, hey why not
And see my friend Adam talking to him
So naturally I asked Adam if they were friends and he said he sees him all the time at the gym
Of course
Then Friday I was there with Adam and his new girl and we got to talking
She told me she had a friend she would like me to meet
Okay, if he's cute I'm totally game
Then Sunday Adam informs me he got the cute boy to go to Wild Country Wednesday (tonight)
I am so excited/nervous
Anyways, then on Monday, Adam's girl tells me that she got her friend to come along with us on Friday
Hmm.. I thought, this could be an interesting week at Wild Country
Thennnnn said boy from this post decides to message me on Facebook on Tuesday
He informs me that he is going to Wild Country Friday and would love to see me there
So now I have to meet one boy tonight
And two boys Friday night
I hate meeting boys
I am awkward, I don't know what to say/do
I need help
That is all

Once again, an embarrassing story

It's been awhile
I've missed all of you
School has just started out crazy
I mean, I even had homework BEFORE classes started
What the hell is that!? 
Anyways, I recently told you about how my life is one big embarrassing moment
And it just continues to be that way
Every. Single. Day.

So let me just tell you this little story of embarrassment
So I'm at my usual Friday night spot and as the night is ending these two boys come up to my friend and I
They buy us a few drinks and we exchange numbers, the norm right?
Well then the next day said boy texts me and we chat for awhile
Then he adds me to Facebook, because it's the cool thing to do these days
It also makes creeping that much easier
Then said boy doesn't text me for a few days, which is fine since I barely know him
But I was on a dinner date with my friend Nikki
 And I started to tell her about him
So of course we creep him on Facebook
Well, while creeping him I get a text from said boy that says "Stalking me huh? haha"
Instant freak out mode ensued
So we go back through his profile pictures we had been looking at
And low and behold, I had accidentally liked one of his super old profile pictures
Yeah, that happened
 But just wait, it gets better
Then the next day I am telling my sister the story
A few hours later my news feed tells me she had added him as a friend
And when I asked her why she did it her response was "I don't know"
Needless to say this said boy has NOT contacted me since
My face upon learning my sister had added him.. attractive, I know

And there you have it
Once again, another embarrassing post by yours truly.

Also, I jumped on the Vine App bandwagon!
Add me! :)

Buying Textbooks ... Ughhh

Ever think to yourself "why do books cost so much?!"

Well let me be honest, I don't
I have the privilege of renting my text books from my school
And now I am telling you how to rent yours!
I am bringing you the website Campus Book Rentals

What kind of bouquet to get a man

This kind of bouquet!

It's a man bouquet!
I made it for my cousin for Christmas and he loved it!
It had baby bottles of alcohol, peanuts, chocolate and sunflower seeds on it
Want to know how to make one?
Good, because I'm going to tell you!

 Gather supplies:
*Mini bottles of alcohol
*Sunflower seeds
*Plant pot
*Wooden sticks
*The foam stuff to stick in the pot
*Some shredded paper that you use in Easter baskets
*Hot glue to glue everything onto the sticks

 Put the foam stuff in the pot

 Here's the shredded paper

And if you are me and have the mom that I do, have your mother do it for you
Because well, when you do it, it isn't good enough 
Ha, actually I couldn't figure it out so she did it for me

We put the sticks in first
Then the shredded paper
I wanted to add sparkly stuff to it
But it's a "man bouquet"
I had to remind myself of that a few times

DIY Cork Picture Coasters

It's Thursday
Which means it's almost Friday
Which means it's almost the weekend

Anywho, the next two days are going to be some DIY's because I'm just that crafty
Today's craft is cork picture coasters
I made these for my sister for Christmas
I just went onto her Instagram and printed off some of the pictures she had on there

  The pictures
I made them 4x4 on Microsoft Word
The coasters
I found them at Michaels

 Mod Podge
I already had this

 I traced the coasters on the pictures and then cut them out

 Then I took cardstock and did traced the coasters onto it

 And cut them out

 Spread a thin layer of Mod Podge onto the coaster

 Put the card stock onto the coaster and then let dry for about 15 minutes
After that put a thin layer of Mod Podge on the card stock and put the picture onto it
Let dry for about 15 minutes 

 Seal with a thin layer of Mod Podge on top of the pictures

 Let dry and then give them to who ever you made them for

Easy as cake
Just the way I like my crafts!

2012: A Year in Review

Hello again
So I don't usually post twice in one day
Sometimes we all get lucky if I post twice in a week
Kidding... kind of
But this looked like fun!
 It's 2012 in Review!

I am going to start from March because that is when I started this little blog of mine
So here we go

I created this blog!
I tried my hand at making something other than cereal
 I had a few run ins with some birds
 And I went mushroom hunting for the first time

I made my first DIY.
I had to watch One Tree Hill end.
(talk about a sad day)
My cousin had her bridal shower.

My sister walked on the field at Busch Stadium and I was super jealous.
We had to put our family dog down.
I made a bucket list.
And I went to the zoo for the first time in FOREVER

I celebrated my cousins bachelorette party.
I got wedding fever, so naturally I planned my own wedding.
I got to spend a whole week with my family!
My cousin got married!

I wrote to myself at 16.
I admitted that I was wrong (Which NEVER happens)
I went to some county fairs and did some creek riding.
Taco in a bag .. be jealous

I made some Spongebob Cookies (with the help of my Aunt of course)
I celebrated August 22.
I went to Wild Country and haven't stopped going since.

I got my third tattoo.
 I shared with you my future husbands.
And I road tripped to Ohio!

I celebrated my best friends 21st birthday.
I cheered on the Cards as they went to the playoffs.
I turned 21!
And I broke my wittle baby toe.

I went on a first date.
I went shooting.
I talked about my constant life of embarrassment.

I taught you all how to Snapchat.
I made a super awesome ginger bread house.
I experienced my first adult work week (and it sucked).

And that was my year in review.
I'm sure a lot more happened
I just either forgot about it or didn't capture it to blog about it.
I am hoping to be more productive in my blogging this year.
But we all know how I am about actually getting stuff done...
