Wow! I'm Such A Horrible Person!

Okay! So I haven't done a post since like THANKSGIVING! What a horrible terrible person I am! UGH! I guess life just got away from me. Plus, I guess it doesn't help that I go through these terrible points where I just don't want to do anything at all. I just have to make myself do things instead of just sitting around feeling sorry for myself. Does anyone else ever feel like this?

 Anyway! So, the new year is here and as my resolution I'm going to get this blog back on it's feet and try to keep it that way.

 YAY! So I'm going to Favorite Finds Friday back up and running starting this week. And eventually work my way back to your linky parties. Please guys, bare with me! Sorry for neglecting you for so long. Really, I don't deserve your forgiveness! Okay...I'll stop grovelling now.

Now, I want to know what your New Year's resolution is. The ever popular weight loss? Quit smoking? Please let me know!

DIY Fabric Vase

Hi everyone! Recently, we added another couch to our living room to get ready for football season. I live in an apartment and the living room area is kinda small, so I had to rearrange my entire living room in fit a second couch in there. If I had got it my way we would have gotten rid of the old plaid couch that we have. Football season. Football season, Alex said to me. So, compromise. We can keep both couches if we can get the cooking channel and food network when we get our cable service turned back on for NFL RedZone. But really, it's a pretty good deal for me. Not only do I get my food network, but I get to enjoy Sunday night football without cramped quarters with all the boys around. But, I won't tell Alex that it was a good idea. No need to grow his ego any bigger than it already is. Why am I telling you this story, you ask?

Saturday Social Blog Hop 9

Hi everyone! How is the weekend going for you? Mine has been pretty low key, which is exactly what I like. But it's really the calm before the storm. Wednesday is going to the be start of the crazy holidays. At least for me. But I am kind of looking forward to those Black Friday sales. I've already got a couple of things circled in my Black Friday ads. Black Friday is always very nostalgic to me. I always think of shopping with my Mom. I miss it a lot, but with an ocean between us, going holiday shopping with my Mom every year just is feasible. But I always do think of her when Black Friday comes around. I know for some people Black Friday just isn't their cup of tea. How do you feel about it?

Tutorial Tuesday - Tiramisu

Hi everyone! You guys ready for some tastiness?

Today, I want to tell you guys a story. About seven years ago, I met my boyfriend Alex. He was working at our local Blockbuster at the time and I went in there constantly just to get a look at him. Can you believe I was actually shy at some point in my life? Yeah, really not that far of a stretch. I'm still a little shy to this day. Anyway, I would go into Blockbuster probably about three to four times a week. Nothing says I love you like a little stalking, right? One day, I went in the early afternoon, there was no one in the store but me and him. Two minutes after I walked into the door he approached me and started recommending movies. Me, of course being the shy person that I am, just smiled, nodded, and blushed like a fiend. I knew he was a very confidant person. It was one of the many reasons why I was attracted to him. So, as he was talking to me, I thought to myself that there was no way a guy like this would ever go for a shy quiet girl like me. Then, he asked me for my email address. He said he would ask for my number but that was against company policy. However, asking for my email wasn't even mentioned in Blockbuster's employee conduct book. Who knew?
