Sunday Social! :)

Linking up with Neely and Ashley for Sunday Social! Yay! This week, we are taking an awkward trip back to middle school and high school--eek! And no pictures will be shown--oh darn, my scanner isn't working and I'm old enough that we didn't have digital cameras "back in the day". Hah! 

Sunday Social
1. Biggest Middle school fashion mistake: Super baggy jeans, "bell-bottom" jeans, omg so embarrassing to remember those!
2. Who were your best friends in hs?  Heather, Jennifer, Lauren, Greg, Colleen, Laura, Elizabeth, Jennifer U., and so on. :) 
3. What was a typical weekend like for you in hs? Going to the movies, going to the mall, football and basketball games, game nights, good times! :)
4. Did you have any boyfriends/girlfriends? Uh, no. I had about a million different crushes but nothing even remotely serious, haha. I went to prom with a guy who (I think) had a crush on me, but I was a little fickle about guys. Oh well! 
5. Did you have any secret codes with your friends? We had a secret code name for a girl in our group who was kind of a friend but also kind of annoying. So we could talk about her without anyone knowing. Yeah, I know. Super nice and all. :-/ My friends and I would also make up code names for our "secret" crushes. Which we did a terrible job of keeping secret, hah!!

Oh Downton...

I swear--- I'm still in recovery mode from Sunday's episode of Downton Abbey so today will be a short and sweet post. 

Not even joking, I actually had a difficult time falling asleep Sunday night and I KNOW it was totally connected to that episode. And I thought about what big event had happened throughout the day today--ahhh, it's crazy because I know it's just a TV show, but case anyone hasn't seen it yet, I won't go into details but let's just say it was a pretty emotional episode. :( And without revealing any other facts, I'll just leave you with this sadly true but still hysterical cartoon my adorable younger sister emailed me tonight! :)

Ahhhh hahaha....

Bon Jovi!

This past weekend we celebrated my older sister's birthday on Friday, which was really fun! We had a great family dinner on Friday and then on Sunday, my sister and I went to see Bon Jovi in Washington D.C.! My sister's boyfriend got us tickets (yay sister's boyfriend!) since he was going to be out of town and couldn't go--I was more than happy to make the sacrifice and go instead...hah!! 

This is the second time I've seen Bon Jovi and he was awesome!  During this concert, they played more new songs from an album that will be released soon, which was kind of cool but also a little different. I personally like going to concerts where I know the songs REALLY well and can sing along, so although I liked hearing the new songs, I definitely preferred when they played some of their old classics! And closing the show with "Living on a Prayer"? AWESOME! Could not have picked a better finale than that song--I love it! :)

The view from our seats. Our section was, in a word, "cozy"!

I put this photo up on Facebook and one of my uncles commented "You  guys went to the Grammys?" Because that also was on Sunday night...hahaha umm yeah I only wish! Hahaha...

My Inappropriate Life

How's that for a title?? Hahaha....

One of my favorite shows to watch is the absolutely hilarious Chelsea Lately. Chelsea Handler---wow...where to begin? I think she is hysterical! She is ridiculously silly and crazy but her show is awesome! :) And she has written some funny books as well---if you like comedians, definitely check them out!

Pinned Image

One of the best parts of the show is the round-table, where Chelsea and other comedians talk about important life issues aka celebrity gossip. My absolute favorite person to be at the round-table is Heather McDonald--LOVE her!

Pinned Image

I just finished reading Heather's new book called My Inappropriate Life that came out earlier this week and I highly recommend reading it! Heather shares lots of funny stories about the show, being a mom, and other crazy adventures in her life. There were a few points where I almost choked on my pita chips---hilarious! I'm sad that I read it SO quickly because now what do I read? I love memoirs or funny non-fiction books, but I read through them at hyper speed most of the time... :( haha..

Pinned Image

(And needless to say, sadly I was not given a free copy of the book or in any way compensated for this review. I only wish I was cool enough to have those kinds of connections...hahaha!!)

Sunday Social!

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!!! :)

I personally am rooting for the Ravens to win the Super Bowl today! My dad was born in Baltimore and although my family is die-hard Redskins fans, we still also root for the Ravens (except when they play the Redskins which luckily doesn't happen often). Also? One of the Ravens' colors is purple, which is awesome. :)

This week's questions:

1. If you were stuck on an island, what are the two material items you would want to have?
Um, I would absolutely have to bring my Nook (and I'm assuming the island would have somewhere to charge it, hahaha) and my Ipod---need reading material and music!

2. What are two TV shows you'd watch over and over?
Oooh, that's tough! I have a lot of favorite TV shows but as far as ones to watch over and over again, I'd say Friends and Boy Meets World. (Lol!!) 

3. If your house was on fire, what two things aside from family, pets, etc. would you grab?
My laptop and purse

4. What are your two most favorite articles of clothing?
My NorthFace fleece and my Uggs! (Boots count as clothing right? :) They are so comfy and keep my feet warm during the cold winter months....and yes, I think the winters in Virginia are wayyyyy too cold, even though I'm sure people in colder locales would disagree, haha.)

5. What two movies that you saw in the past year would you recommend to us?
Les Miserables (SUCH a good movie--I loved it!)....I really can't think of another one! :-/ I don't really make it to the movies that often..

6. What are your two biggest guilty pleasures
Mindless reality TV shows and Haagen Dazs ice cream yum! :)

Friday's Fancies: Apres-ski! :)

Linking up with <av> from Long Distance Loving today for Friday's Fancies! 

Today's theme is "Hit the Slopes!" or as I like to call it "Put on a Cute Outfit to Sit by the Fire in the Ski Lodge All Day". Hah. 

I went skiing once a few years ago and it was literally the scariest thing I've ever done (and I was on the bunny slopes--how embarrassing) and I'm 99.9% sure I will never do it again! I had fun but seriously got freaked out by the ski lift and not feeling like I had good control of myself going down the mountain hill....

BUT that being said, I definitely was up for creating a super cozy and fun outfit for the "after skiing" fun! :)

Apres-ski! :)

These boots are adorable---not necessarily my usual style of boots but I think they have a great "ski" look to them....

I have a weakness for silver hoop earrings and let's be honest, it's not like I'd actually be skiing so I don't have to worry about them getting caught...haha!
