This is my favorite gum in the world, and now Wal-Mart sells it! I'm so excited.
It's Stride Mystery Flavor - and a warning to all of you grown up gum chewers, it's fruity, not minty.

I'm still an immature chewer.

Some More Of My Favorite

Songs. I found two of my old favorite CDs and listened to them in the car today.

If your name is Angie, I'll be that at some point in your life someone has sang this song to you. If you're me, its happened a lot.
Angie by the Rolling Stones

You've got to admit, Mick Jagger looks a little bit like a Disco Woody.

And another favorite:

Yellow Submarine by the Beetles

Sunless Tanning

Do you?
Sarah's wedding is coming up very quickly and I'm considering sunless tanning. What do you use? Anyone have luck with Neutrogena?

A Look At Aging:


It is amazing how four years can look like forty.

This is Awesome

Flying is such a thing of the past...pigeons take the subway now.

A Little Personal Information

You may or may not know this about me, but I like a very diverse group of music.

I grew up listening to my dad's Aerosmith tapes in the car. We spent a lot of time together, so I knew all the songs. Not only Aerosmith, but most of the 80's hair  bands. For that reason, they have a special place in my heart.

So I know you've heard about Bret Michaels by now, and in case you only think he's famous from his reality television shows (note: I only like his music) he acutally used to be in a band who pretty much rocked.

I have lots of favorite songs, but this one ranks up there with Fat Bottom Girls by Queen.

Check out that hair. Check out those pants. Whew.

Happy Thursday

Have a great Thursday!


You might remember this post from last month about the Demy.

I had to go into Sam's Club a few days ago, and ran across this:
So, if you're interested, it could be yours for $198.98.

I'm not gonna lie, it's pretty cool, but its also pretty expensive.

Administrative Assistant's Day

Yesterday was Secretary's Day, so the command staff took me and Kathy out to lunch today. We went to Casa and it was amazing. One of the guys got each of us one of these. It's a giant piece of chocolate cake. I let Josh help me eat it when I got home. :) It was really good.

Work & Coffee

I went to Higher Grounds the other day for a coffee. I was kinda warm so I wanted iced.
It was decent..but definitely not Starbucks. I know people hate SBux but I love it.

This is my super healthy snack. My coworker, Kathy, always brings me chocolate. I think we'll get along.

And this is my super boring, plain, desk. Help me decorate it! What should I put up? Any ideas for cute pen holders? Cute accessories? Give me ideas!

Spring Flowers

I cut these down about a week ago. They were super tall...I probably should have cut them more.

Oh, Betty.

So we have this old tire that used to be Trajan's. He would jump all over it and play with it.

Betty has a rubber bucket (we finally got smart after replacing numerous plastic buckets...they can't break the rubber) and she dumps it all the time so that she can play with it.

So I suggested we give her the tire and see if she played with it.

This is what she did.

Monday Night Funnies

A Cry For Help

Dear Friends,

I am makeup impaired. I only know how to use one look on my eyes. Before that I was completely helpless, but now, I'm in the same boat with my one look. I read blogs where everyone puts their cute makeup pictures, and talks about the different color eye shadows they've gotten, but I can't commit. Every time I go to buy shadow, I end up buying a color I already have.

Please help!

Here are a few photos I took...

My naked eye.

My makeup after working a full day. I hope it looks better than this in the morning.
Same as above.

I decided to go through my makeup bag on Saturday because I knew the stuff in it was most likely expired. I found that I had all of these eye liner pencils and I don't even use a pencil. I tossed all of these.
All of these mascaras were also expired...way past expired. The only one I'd recommend out of this bunch would be the green Define-A-Lash.
The contents of my makeup bag before I cleaned it.
I tried the Lash Stiletto, and this is still my favorite.
I use this eye shadow. It is past expired but I found of that Pop Beauty doesn't make this anymore. I'm kind of bummed.

The inside of my eye cake. Can you tell which colors I always use?

I use MAC Fluidline eyeliner. I have been totally hooked on it ever since my friend/waxer Jen recommended it to me.

Give me all of your suggestions! I want comments, criticisms (good and bad), and advice. I want to get out of this rut!

The Clearance Basket

This is my new favorite place to look (it is right next to the office supplies too). Our Wal-Mart put this basket in a super secret hidden spot that only I know about, because I'm super good at finding things.

Just kidding.

It is kind of hidden though. I found it one day and got lots of clearance nail polish.

Does your store have a clearance basket?

Wal-Mart Organization

I love the office supplies aisles. I will walk up and down them when I don't even need anything. There is something about fresh supplies though that lifts my spirits.

Whatever. I don't care if you think I'm weird.

I was super excited the other day to see that they are starting to carry super cute and functional organizational pieces. However, I will wait for them to either go on clearance, or bring the price down a little.

Road Construction

It is everywhere, especially in the Fort. It is insane around here. Everything on our side of town is closed off or so torn up that its almost impassable. They've even closed the entrance to my parents Starbucks.

My dad and brothers walk up there at least once a weekend so my dad can get coffee and my brothers can get cookies. They happened upon this on their way there.

Spring Birthdays

My mom's birthday was the other day. This is her cake. I like it.

My birthday cake making has turned into a tradition without me planning on it. I didn't have the cake ready on her actual birthday and my brother William was very upset with me about it.

I'm glad he likes my cakes.

If You Follow Me At All...

You know I take pictures of dumb stuff. I was in the pasta aisle again yesterday, and noticed the price of parmesan cheese. It has came way way down since the last time I posted about it but it is still pretty crazy. Not just the price of the cheese, but the price difference between name brand and generic. Check it out, and this is better than last time.

Skinny Cow

While I was grocery shopping the other day I spotted this ice cream. I like that it is the little cups. I don't know about you, but I really don't love ice cream. I like it, but I don't like very much of it. I know, I'm weird. I thought that these cups were the perfect size for me, and probably anyone who worries about overeating.

Not too unhealthy, and really good. Check them out.

Dear Saturn Drivers,

What is this thing for?
I'm driving a Saturn Aura for the day and for the life of me, cannot figure out what that thing is.

Super Savings

Megan and I went to Ulta last night. For a free 20% off coupon, click here.

At my job with the worlds largest retailer, I didn't dress up. Part of my uniform was jeans and gym shoes, so I didn't find it necessary to wear makeup. At my new job, the dress is business casual, and I find that I actually feel better about myself when I'm dressed professionally and wear makeup. I like how I look.

So we went shopping and got some awesome deals.

Maybelline Lash Stiletto: originally $8.99 sale: $5.39

Redken Fresh Curls (to keep my mane tamed): original: $16.00 sale: $12.80 (with 20% coupon)

Popcorn: free.

Orly Powder Puff nail lacquer: originally: $7.50 sale: $0.99

Yes, really. $0.99.

Eco tools bamboo eyeliner brush: $4.99.


I started my job this week, and so far it is pretty awesome. If you've been following my Twitter updates though, you already know that. :)
I take my breaks outside since I sit inside all day. The flowers are so pretty right now. I love these tulips. I didn't get close enough to get a good picture. This was taken from my bench.

Just Another Day at the Half Priced Bookstore

I love it there.

We thought this picture was funny. We decided to get a dictionary because we don't have one. Check out how much smaller the pocket dictionary is...you've got to have some pockets to carry that around.

If you haven't read Twilight yet, and are interested, check out the half priced book store. They have hard covers for $11.

Growing Up Isn't So Bad

Joshua and I recently bought this.
Did we love it? Yes.
Was it an amazing truck? Yes.
Was it hard to give up? Not really.

I definitely will miss it, because I looooved driving it. When I lost my job with the world's largest retailer, we decided we should probably cut back. A little extra money never hurt anyone, right? So we've been tossing the idea back and forth about getting out of the truck and trading down.

So last night, we bought this.
And I wish we had done it a long time ago. The amount of money we're saving per month from our lower payment combined with our much lower insurance payment (it isn't cheap to insure two 24 year old people on a brand new truck) is very close to being equal to the amount of my paychecks from the world's largest retailer. It is amazing.

It isn't all about the money though, I really love the Jeep. I think it's awesome, and I'm really glad we did it.

What do you think?

Chocolate Cheerios

I broke down and finally bought some.

They are fantastic!


Have you had them? Do you like?
