If you REALLY knew me...

Lately I have seen a lot of bloggers posting, "If you really knew me...". I figured I'd give it a shot a let you readers get a little insight on me. Some things you may know; some you may not. 

If you really knew me you would know that I am EXTREMELY impatient. I don't like to wait on anything. When I want it, I want it right then. I don't like having to wait on someone else.

If you really knew me you would know that in 8th grade I got all over BLONDE highlites. Girls, hideous. Just hideous. Never. Again. 

If you really knew me you would know that I have an unhealthy obsession with dogs. I LOVE dogs. I talk to them like they understand me (because I know they do). Even though I love dogs, it doesn't mean I love ALL dogs. I am partial to big dogs/non-sissy dogs.

If you really knew me you would know that I am OBSESSED with honey mustard. I put it mainly on my fries. However, I have been known to dip a McDonald's late night double cheeseburger in some honey mustard. 

If you really knew me you would know that I have been dating my beau for 3 years tomorrow/today (depending on when you are reading this, July 26th). He is my best friend and is totally my soulmate. There is no one like him.

If you really knew me you would know that I have to have at least 8 hours of sleep. If not, my alter ego, Harry, comes out. She also comes out when I get too hot. Hot = Cranky Harry. You do not want to meet Harry.

If you really knew me you would know that I really don't know how to do my hair. I am very plain when it comes to hair. Plus my hair doesn't like to do anything

If you really knew me you would know that I LOVE babies. I love to love on my bff's babies all the time whenever I get to see them. You would also know that I love FAT babies like rolly polly. Does that sound bad? In my head, it doesn't. I don't care.

If you really knew me you would know that I keep up with other's blogs more than I do my own. My life is just really not all that exciting. I'm okay with it. I live vicariously through y'all.

If you really knew me you would know that I am a DIEHARD Gamecock. In my early high school years, I WAS a Clemson fan. Then I decided I didn't like them. I have been a Gamecock ever since. There is nothing quite like Williams Brice Stadium come a 7pm kickoff in October. LOVE IT. And yes, I KNOW what's going on.

If you really knew me you would know that I am a Daddy's girl through and through. We look a lot alike, and he is the most genuine/funny man I know. We also have a lot of the same mannerisms -- like sticking out our tongues when we are really concentrating hard.

I think that is all for now. I hope y'all got some insight on me that you didn't already know. Let me know if you have any posts like this. I would love to read what I don't know. :) 



The Bachelorette

So... what did y'all think? 

I really thought Sean was the one. He was great. He was super sweet. And my goodness, he was sooo good lookin'. 

BUT, I did like Jef... with one F.
He seemed so genuine. He just seemed like a good soul to me.
I think Emily and him are such a good fit. 
He is different though with his hair... and "edge" as Emily puts it. 

I really think Emily needs to LOSE the extensions. Her hair is gorgeous and when she puts it in, it does NOT look pretty. It just looks stringy to me. 

Homegirl, could take some lessons from Pink Lou Lou
If you don't know, you should. The girl can rock some hair & makeup! 
She's adorable & will keep you laughing. 

But as I was saying, I am very happy for Emily and Jef and Little Ricki!

And her ring ain't half bad either.... I mean c'mooooon!

 {A reported $150k ring, 2.5 carat emerald cut center stone, 87 round cut diamonds set in a platinum band, for a total carat weight of 3.5 carats. HOLY MOLY! Home girl better start doing some finger exercises.}

Anyways, hope y'all have a fabulous week. 



Rant: Making the effort

Hi readers (if I still have any)! Sorry I have been bad about posting. Oops!

So lately I have been struggling with the fact that some people who I am friends with just do NOT put forth any effort to keep in touch. So in March, I moved to Greenville from Charleston. I left some of my best girlfriends there. I knew that leaving Charleston would be hard but that it would be the best thing for me. I do not regret moving whatsoever. It has been an awesome experience especially since I am finally in the same city as my boyfriend. 

Well, most of my girlfriends have been awesome about keeping in touch. Honestly, we don't get to talk on the phone as much just because we are all on different schedules and are busy so we mass text and email a lot. However, one of my friends has been super slack about it. I have always had to initiate the first text or email. Well to be frank, I'm sick. of. it. 

I emailed her almost two weeks ago and have yet to hear back. It was a personal email (not a mass one) asking about how everything was going on in her life with her job, family, etc. Now, I did email her at work. I understand work gets busy. BUT, if you get the email and read it and don't have time to write at length how everything is going, wouldn't you at least acknowledge that you got the email? And maybe perhaps that you were busy, but would text/call sometime when you weren't busy?

Did I get that? 

No. Nothing. Nada.

I had to find out from one of my OTHER girlfriends about this friend and how she is doing. 

This girl is a newlywed as of a few months ago. BUT, my girlfriends that do make an effort to keep in touch are both married and HAVE CHILDREN!!! You can't tell me that you are so busy that you don't have enough time to even acknowledge my efforts. 

So with all that being said, I have decided that I am not going to make any more efforts. I am going to sit back and let that person make the effort. I told my girlfriends about how I was feeling about this situation, and they all agreed. They also felt the same way about how it is very one-sided.  

I am not going to chase you around to be my friend. I am not going to force you to be my friend. If you want to be my friend, make the effort. SHOW me that you want me as your friend. 

Until then, the ball is in YOUR court. I've made enough effort. 

I mean do y'all agree or am I crazy??

Okay, rant over. 

Sorry for such a depressing, mad post after so long. I had to get that out. I promise I'll be happy posting from now on.

Anyways, hope y'all are all doing well. I hope to get back to posting regularly...if once a week is regular. I am going to try to do better! Promise.



Happy 4th of July

I hope all of you remember what today is about. Many thanks to our men and women serving or have served in our armed forces. Thank you for letting us live in this great country, the USA, home of the FREE and land of the BRAVE.


Looking forward to...


We don't have big plans since the 4th falls in the middle of the week and neither of us took off. 

But I am looking foward to cooking out, getting some sun, and having a few cocktails.

Y'all have a great short week!
