For all you 90s children out there

" Lisa Frank is not the name of a woman, it is the name of a movement, a culture, a way of living. It is a theory, a concept, a belief in something greater than yourself. It is the belief that all girls are entitled to dolphins covered with rainbows, jewel-encrusted frogs, and unicorns in acid-trip colors hugging each other. It is the ideology that no notebook is complete until it literally hurts your eyes to look at from so much color saturation. It is the hope that no school supply, no matter how insignificant, will be left un-bedazzled. It is the knowledge that your eraser cap, and that of your granddaughter’s, and her granddaughter’s after her, will not be some boring little nub–it will be a diamond covered with butterflies in a rainbow of colors. It is the dream of a better tomorrow."

That pretty much sums up my childhood. 

Me and Lisa Frank were BFFs.

I may or may not still have some bedazzled kitty folders to prove it.

Away I go, to eat and eat and eat and eat

The time has arrived for me to drive off into the sunset to the land of this...

and this... partake in my most favorite activity in the world...


No one does it like my mama does it.

I can promise you that!

PLUS I'll be eating desserts.


Then it's off to the land of this...

and this... partake in neither of those things.

But there will be ginger boyfriend family time and a wedding.

Have a stupendous Thanksgiving, y'all!!

Child celebs and sexy vampires

While waiting for a table at the Wings 'n More in College Station, I spotted this little fellow:

That's Manny from modern family.
His real name is Rico Rodriguez, and he is from College Station.
I was too chicken to ask for a picture.
Yes, I was nervous about a small child.

The next day, Lieutenant Dan was at the football game.

AKA Gary Sinise.
I was not in attendance of the game [duh], but it made me wish I cared more about football.
I wanted to meet him and say "Lieutenant Dan, iiiiice cream."

The day after that, I finally saw breaking dawn with Caroline and Ginger Boyfriend.
I may or may not have screamed at this scene:

And by "may or may not have," I mean that I definitely did and the whole theatre laughed.
I am ready to see the movie again. And maybe again.

A hottie for your Friday

It's Friday!

So here's a hot man for you to feast your eyes on.

Because why not?

I present to you, People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive.


And if you haven't seen the video of him speaking French, you are missing out.

Happiest of Fridays to you all!

Alex and Bradley

At midnight....

Judge me. 

I probably need to be judged.

But the fact is, I ate these books up like candy. 

Really poorly written candy, but candy nonetheless.

And I love them.

I love the movies because of Rob.

Oh, Rob. Want to run away together?

I'm sure Aaron won't mind. In fact, he told me I am allowed to have you as my secret lover.

Consider it, please.

I will not be watching this gem at midnight, but I'll be in the theatre on Sunday afternoon, ginger boyfriend in tow. His choice, I promise.

For all you Twihards with the ability to stay up so late on a work night, more power to you.

So until Sunday....I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Insert 13 year old girl squeals.

Have I mentioned...

That I'm on a hiatus from sweets?

Yes, I, the queen of dessert eating, am taking a break.

My habbit was getting a little out of hand.

We're talking multiple trips to the candy dish in my boss's office.

Eating out of brownie pans with a fork...or with my hands...

I know none of this is good for me...and my pants are tired of being so full with my bum.

So until Thanksgiving, because we have to be realistic, there will be none of this

or this

or this

But rest assured, I will gorge myself on Thanksgiving.

And in Europe.

Because how can I go to Paris without eating eclairs and macarons?

Renaissance Festival...where all the crazies hang out

Things that occurred/I saw during my time at the Texas Renaissance Festival:
  1. Camping out on Friday night and sleeping very close to each other for warmth.
  2. RIP, pink camera. It got stepped on while dancing.
  3. A woman breastfeeding her baby, in public, while walking. It should also be known that she was in costume. Classy.
  4. People with very little clothing on. People that should probably exercise a little more.
  5. A little girl dressed as a dragon, complete with working wings.
  6. Some legit kilts
  7. Turkey legs. Nom nom.

We're so hood. Literally. Get it?

You know I had to take a picture in front of a kitty sign.

I could not figure out if this lady was an employee of the festival or was just plain crazy. She sat on a bench talking to and petting this mummified looking cat. His name was Mr. something...the name escapes me. She got up to show us "tricks" he could do. Could this be me in the future?

Oh happy day, the official trailer is out!!!

Give this lady some Haggis [no..not really...gross]


Before you get too excited, I am not going to Scotland.

But I WILL be running around in a kilt on a large field in Texas.

The yearly Renaissance Festival is almost over, so a big group is going out there for the "Highland Fling" themed weekend.

This will be my first time to partake, and I'm expecting a ton of really great people watching.

For example, this is a common site:

I smell good times ahead.

But none of them will involve any of those people up there.

Things I am currently bothered by

In no particular order:
  1. Andy Rooney's death.
  2. Kim Kardashian's 72 day union making a mockery out of marriage. People fight every day for the simple RIGHT to marry, yet she was able to throw an outrageously extravagant wedding that actually MADE HER MONEY. I want to kick her.
  3. The fact that the Duggars are expecting their 20th child. I don't even want to know what state her nether regions are in after giving birth to a small army.
  4. Restaurants that leave you smelling like fried food.
  5. The price of hostels in London.
To offset my irritation at the above mentioned items, here is a really creepy picture for you to enjoy.


Their facial expressions.
Their clothes.
The hideous background.
Poor cat is the most normal thing in this picture.

The end.

Insert lyrics to Taylor Swift songs here

I mentioned I was going to the Taylor Swift concert on Saturday night.

It was a good time.


She played about 90% slow songs.

Slow songs + really long concert = sleepy Alex.

But then...

Nelly suddenly appeared on stage as a special guest.

I think that greatly pleased all of us over the age of 20.

Trust me, there weren't many of us.

The view from our suite.

She was right below us on this little spinning tree thing.

Oh hey, Nelly. Makes perfect sense that you're at a Taylor Swift show.

You may already know this, but Taylor Swift has a Scottish Fold kitten named Meredith.

I know this because she tweeted pictures of her.

I was hoping she'd bring her out on stage.

Crazy cat lady, I know.

This happened last Friday evening...

It's too early, I know.

Judge me.

But I was home alone, bored. And putting up a Christmas tree sounded so festive.

Plus, look how mesmerized Chester is.

It might be Saturday, but this is royalty news, y'all

There is speculation that these two highly attractive, royal human beings could have a baby on the way.


Granted, I like weddings way more than I like babies, but when it comes to royals I can find excitement in anything!

My thoughts on all this:
  1. The child will be really attractive. No way around it.
  2. Because of a new law, a first born female child can be Queen!! Girl power!
  3. He/she will have some ridiculously long title upon being born, like The Duke/Duchess of Longbottom Upon Stratfordshire.
  4. I would like to be invited to its christening
Can't wait to find out of this baby rumor is true!

On another note, I also can't wait to find out if the Justin Bieber baby daddy rumor is true. How hilarious would that be?

Angry girl country music

This weekend I'll be seeing this little lady in cocert:

T-Swift puts on a good show, y'all.

Plus the concert is at our terrible baseball team's ball park. You know what that means?

Hot dogs.

Leave it to me to be as equally excited about the food as I am about the music.

Something to look forward to

My bed time is 11 pm.

No shame.

Last night I stayed up till 1 am planning Winter Eurotrip 2K11-12.

Fancy name, huh?

Our proposed schedule is as follows:

December 27-28: Dublin
December 28-30: Liverpool
December 30-January 2: London
January 2-6: Paris [BIRTHDAY TIMES!!]
January 6-8: Amsterdam

Then I leave. Womp womp.

I've been scouring and for lodging deals, but good gracious places are expensive!

If any of you will be in any of those locations at any of those times, come play!
You know you'd love to spend my birthday with me in Paris. I have high hopes for it!

That's me. In the future. I'll procure a poodle in Paris just for the occasion.
