4 Books

I read this book over the summer and I really enjoyed it.  Highly Suggest. 

This book has so many memories for me and my besties.  It gave us hope that no matter what, we would still be friends even if we weren't in the same city.

Just one of my favorites from my childhood.

I love all Nicholas Sparks books even if they are similar.  I just choose this one cause it was one of my favorites.

3 Movies

I am a big lover of chick flicks, so I really could pick any three and be happy but I am going to try to add some variety to the post.

And yes I put so multiple pictures up because I could not decide which one I wanted to choose.  I watched this movie every night as a child and it will always be a favorite.  It also lead to my love of musicals and Broadway.  It was kind of pathetic when I started to watch this movie with mature mind, I catch more and more funny lines. Dirty 

The Ugly Truth
I just think this is one of the funniest movies every.  I die laughing every time I watch it.  If you haven't seen it yet, I suggest that you do.

Big Daddy

Big Daddy
I loved Adam Sandler in his prime and this is by far one of my favorites.  It never gets old.  "I wipe my own a$$"

Two Songs

"Then" by Brad Paisley is my number one love song ever.  It is so true on so many levels.  It explains everything I ever wanted out of a relationship.

The next song I picked is "Stuck Like Glue" by Sugarland.  I picked it because I like upbeat music and I think I sang to this song multiple times a day when it first came out.  I was a bit obsessed.  Not to mention the music video makes me laugh.

I just do not get tired of country music.  Sorry if you aren't a fan.

Here are some facts about myself to go with my picture.
I am 20 years old.
I go to Xavier University.
I was born and raised on the West Side of Cincinnati.
I love country music.
I have been dating my BF for nearly 4 years and he is my high school sweetheart.
My family is my world.
I live with 6 other girls and it is always an adventure.

Thankful Thursday

I have not blogged in a long time.  Starting back to school as Junior taking 18 hours while working almost 20 hours is turning out to harder than I imagined.  It really is kicking me in the butt.  When I am not at work or in class, I tend to be doing homework.  And not just the reading type of homework, where I can act like I read it when everyone know I didn't.  I have a lot of homework I have to turn it, no short-cuts there.  But I have faith in myself that I can do it, and manage to get good grades.  Also, I don't want to be a total loser so I try to throw some fun into the mix and some quality r&r with the BF. (Always important)

So for thankful Thursday, I have come up with a list of things I am thankful for, but at the same time can be a big pain in my butt.

My education at Xavier University.  I love Xavier and I truly believe I made a perfect decision for a college choice.  I am thankful that my parents made the needed sacrifices that allowed me to come here.  I am also thankful for the great opportunities that Xavier has given me.

I am also thankful for the best family and friends any girl could ask for.  These people are always there when I need someone to lean on and are always supportive of me.  I do not know where I would be without them.  I am truly blessed.

One last thing I am thankful for is living in a climate with changing weather.  I always thought I was a warm weather gal but I could really use some fall temperatures right now.  I like change and am grateful that I live in OH! where I can experience all four seasons.  This way I never get bored.

And the above is my style inspiration for fall.  I want so riding boots ASAP! (cooler weather will help, too)

***Yes I know it is Friday and this is Thankful Thursday but I didn't finish the post yesterday, so you get the Thursday post on Friday!!!!!!

Happy Friday Everyone!!!!! Enjoy the holiday weekend!!

All We Can Do is Pray

In every person's life there are high points and low points, and sometimes you can be in those points are the same time.  While I have a million things to be grateful for, this still is becoming a rough point in my life.  I am not going to go in details so sorry if this is vague but I just need to vent.  Things keep happening to me that make me wonder about the point of living, no I am not suicidal just thinking. Don't get me wrong, I love my life and I would change nothing about it but aren't there times when you realize you are just living until you die.  

However, with these thoughts, I began to pray, cry, and think some more.  The saying "You only live once" best describes my conclusion.  There is a time for everyone and everyone has the chance at living.  We may only get one chance but that is the reason that we must live the way we want and make the most out it.  There will be times that it will feel like nothing is good and God just keeps kicking you when you are down, but these points in time will only make you and I stronger. God gives hardships to those who can handle them.  His point is to be cruel but to help us grow and become better people.  

In conclusion, all you and I can do it pray and hope for the best.  I believe there are no obstacles I cannot face and beat.  Next time I am feeling down, I am going to try my best to remember these thoughts and realize "You only live once."

So I had my first adventure in my new mini kitchen at my house, and let's just say I survived.  I only burnt the first set of cookies and I decorated the whole batch.  And most importantly I want to do it again.  These are not by any means perfect but I think its a good starting point.  Practice makes perfect.

My purchases from Meijer.  I did not have any baking supplies so I got all new, including princess cookie cutters.

I used a mix for the cookie dough, easy and still taste good.  I mostly just wanted to decorate.

First batch that I end up burning.  I should have made all my cookies a little thicker.

2nd set.  I love the shapes :)

Only set I baked perfectly.

Here is where I start to get very messy.  I need a squeeze bottle for the flooding icing.

My favorite :)

Finished product.  Not too shabby.
