Leap Day

happy Leap Day, all! it's so weird that this is an extra day of the year that only happens every 4 years... i mean an extra 24 hours of life. is that crazy? probably not. yeah, i'll just stop.

so i was thinking and thinking of really awesome stuff to post to make this extra day really fantastic! but then i though of nothing. SO, bummer.

i mean, i got 29 cent large fries at Mcdonalds. can you say 'winning'?! other than that, it was a normal Wednesday for me. i mean, why couldn't this day be on, like, a Saturday so i can live it up? yeah!

anyway... have you seen this video? i think it's pretty awesome. the actual girl that sings this isn't in this video, but Justin Bieber signed her, i think. but i like how they are just making this video in Carlos' house and being care-free! fun stuff!

other than that, i hope your Leap Day was amazing! tomorrow is March?! what?!? time flies.

Tuesday loseday

i love the color in this picture! i'm also obsessed with drawing tulips.


tonight New Girl isn't on because American Idol is on... a win/lose situation. i was really looking forward to New Girl tonight though, so i guess it's more of a lose. :/

i'm really loving this song right now... agree? it's very catchy!

i have a big chemistry test tomorrow. fml.

how was your Tuesday?

Friday Fancies - Oscars Inspired

ahh Friday! even though i had off Monday and was sick Tuesday, it seems like this week went on forever. but alas! the weekend is here. the Oscars are on Sunday and that's exactly what {av}'s Friday Fancies theme was this week!
Untitled #25

i pretty much just went for sparkle and glam! it's probably not as classy as it should be... what whatever. i like it! i'm not really a fan of fancy dresses, but i really like this one! i like {av}'s too! :)

have a great weekend! any fun plans? i think i'm going maple sugaring with my family tomorrow... woo?

photos with feeling

i'm a real homebody and this picture is almost the definition of that. it just makes me want to cozy up and take a nap or play a game or watch a movie. i love it and had to share!

it's cool when pictures can give you such good feelings... are there any that you have in mind?

a must-enter

ok, this is probably the best giveaway i've ever seen:

Tweet is giving away this amazing Lomography Diana Mini and Flash Leopard camera. umm YES! i'm seriously trying to enter as many times as possible to get it! so go enter and check out her blog! (but, really, don't enter too many times. i want to win this one. so.badly.)

oh, and last night i had the best dream ever. call me lame - but One Direction came to my house. and i talked to them and hung out with them and took pictures with them and hugged them. and it was pure magic. ahhh :)

Wednesday, February 15, 2012


so last night, i realized how wanderlust i am.
i just want to experience places, and fly on a plane, and take pictures of the sights, and buy things that can't be bought in PA, and see in person what i'm missing out on! you know?

i want to visit the Forbidden City in Beijing, China

i want to see Big Ben in London, England
i want to see and take a thousand pictures of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France
i want to visit the beautiful Opera House in Sydney, Australia
i want to see the breath taking scenery of Ireland and see where my ancestors came from
i want to visit this beautiful peace of art in Moscow, Russia
i want to take a picture like this. really badly.
i want to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa and take a picture next to it to make it look like i'm pushing it up in Rome, Italy
i want to see these pretty Italian riverways

i want to see and ride the London Eye in London, England

i want to ride a double-decker bus

and plenty more. doesn't it all sound so fantastic?! gosh, i wish i could do it all. i even know what i would wear to each and everyone of these places! my whole trip is planned in this little noggin.

where would you love to go or do around the world? (including the US! i didn't include going to Disney World and driving across the Golden Gate Bridge!)

on that note... can i have a one way ticket around the world, please? oh, and have a nice Wednesday. :)

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
one time, my Nana sent us a card and i guess she forgot it was Valentine's, so on the card she said "Trick-or-Treat" - haha! it was really funny, and weird.

did anyone see the Google homepage? it's so cute! if you haven't, go there and watch it!

oh, and watch this ;)

hope you had a great love day!

today i went with my dad to his old college (where my parents also got married) and it was a wedding renewal ceremony! but of course my sister was sick, so my mom had to stay home. soo that didn't work out very well. but i was still a nice mass and i got to have lunch with my grandparents, aunt and uncle!

the picture below, is of the church where my parents got married!

then we went to see some other stuff - see that window down in the bottom left corner? that was the kitchen window of my moms first apartment! ha! she only had like 3 windows in her place because hers was, like, underground.

finally, i had to share this. this is probably the funniest commercial i've seen in awhile! haha!

Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop

no, no. this post has nothing to do with me falling in love at a coffee shop. it's just the name of this fantastic song by Landon Pigg! it's such an appropriate song for a snowy day like today! so calming :)

have a cozy Saturday!

p.s. i went thrifting with my friend like i said i was! i got some awesome stuff - pretty exciting! ;)

Friday Fancies - Valentine's Day

hey, all! i'm so glad it's Friday - the week went pretty fast until today. no re-cap needed. but now we have {av}'s Friday Fancies! this weeks theme was Valentines, which i suppose was pretty obvious. i was pretty leery about mixing red and pink - but i did it!
Untitled #24

so, the red pants idea was from my friend Abby, because she has red pants. i think i do dresses and skirts too often for Friday Fancies anyway. i don't have anything to dress up for on Valentines, so it's all good! as for the shirt, i couldn't decide which i liked better, so i guess it's up to you :) i used a lot of jewelry and a pink bag. also, right now i love loafers! (those up there ^ are actually mocs. i was going for loafers, but those mocs are cute!)

so yeah! have an awesome weekend! right now i'm planning to go to salvo with my friend, Brianna, tomorrow - so hopefully it doesn't snow! :)

birthday surprises


a very, very happy 18th birthday to my wonderful friend Abby!!! after school she got a surprise tea party and it was bunches of fun! i love throwing people surprise parties - but it was pretty hard not mentioning it on the blog, if i do say so myself. more so than not mentioning it out loud! anyway, hope you had a great day, Abby!

i think the 500 Days of Summer soundtrack is the best soundtrack ever - SO GOOD.

this is still the cutest picture i've ever seen. the adorableness is killing me!

this is one of the many things i would love to buy from this Etsy shop! too cute. and check out The Daily Fashionista's post about Kelsie!

i'm so excited for Titanic to be re-released!! i love this movie!!

i'm loving like a million songs right now, but in the past hour, this song has been on repeat. blast it on a really bad day - i'm telling you!!

this is SO pretty! i wanted to buy some, but the cheapest store i could find was in Arizona.. :/

have a great week! :)

Take Thyme Today

 today my friend Abby and i went to a nearby tea shop called Take Thyme Today, and it was soo nice! it was a perfect little place. my neighbor is actually the owner, so i knew about it but never really got to go. so she talked us and gave us tea samples and it was great!

so i got this mug and this tea! i'm pretty excited about it! i think i'll go make myself some right now :)

i definitely have to go back soon!!
