What I've Learned Today

My abs may look strong but they most certainly are NOT.

I am not a fan of pilates.

Can you recommend some good work-out DVDs?

Just Call Me Big Sis

I have just filled out an application to become a BIG SISTER!!!

I am sooooo excited, the form said someone will be in contact with me within two days :)

I saw a commercial for BBBS on News 12 a few days ago and i decided it is something i would LOVE to do.

I can't wait to take a nice little girl on all kinds of fun adventures like shopping, manicures, movies & lunches heart Pictures, Images and Photos.

I am an only child so i think this will be a really fun and rewarding experience.

Galoshes is(/are?) a Fun Word <3

The forecast for Long Island today is..... YUCKY!!!

"Windy with periods of rain. Thunder is possible early. High 52F. NNE winds shifting to WNW at 25 to 35 mph. Additional rainfall possibly over one inch."

Yuck Yuck and double Yuck.

Today would be tolerable if only i had my new rain boots...

plaid rain boot

Cute right?

I purchased them @ Nordstroms yesterday but the only pair they had in a six were the floor display which had some scratches on them. I had no choice but to order them and wait an agonizing week or so for them to arrive!

Nothing is less fun then handing over your money at the register and walking away with a mere receipt!

All i can say is it better rain the day after i receive these boots!!

Watch Your Mouth!

“Profanity is the attempt of a lazy and feeble mind to express itself forcefully”


I really like this. I am in no way claiming to never use profanity, i don't think anyone can really say that. I usually only curse when I'm really frustrated or i stub my toe or get a horrendous paper-cut (or maybe when i get the occasional bout of road rage.... but that doesn't really count b/c no one can hear me!!). That said, i still think it sounds a bit ignorant.

I like to have fun with words! I suppose I'm a bit geeky in that i get excited about learning new words or new uses for old words.

Next time something (or someone) makes you mad try screaming a ridiculously silly word instead of the usual four letter word.
You just might make yourself laugh and forget why you got angry in the first place!

Words of Wisdom

“Not forgiving someone is like drinking poison
and expecting the other person to die.“

~ Unknown

This quote is dead on. Holding a grudge only hurts yourself. To be happy you can not hold on to any sort of bitterness.

** That said, I "forgive" the makers of irritating sounds discussed in my previous post!

Click, Chomp, Snort UGH!!!

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning in my research methods class i am subjected to a barrage of irksome noises. To my left we have the relentless texter; the entire duration of class (70 mins) i hear click click click click click. Next up, to my right we have the gum chewer, chomp chomp chomp chomp chomp, with the occasional SNAP thrown in. Maybe i could handle these two if it weren't for the third and utterly intolerable noise..... the heavy breather! Now maybe she has asthma or some other physical ailment but i just CAN NOT deal with the constant and continuous half snore half snort like noises emanating from her direction. Sometimes i seriously want to smack her! Am i evil? At times i have to restrain my self from throwing my books in the air and screaming at them all! Right about now you're probably thinking i need to relax... believe me i try but my entire life i have been very easily irritated by tiny noises, I can't help it!

What noises annoy you?

I need to know I'm not the ONLY KOOK who gets seriously annoyed by teensy little sounds.

I'm not..... right??

What Are You Capable Of?

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

This quote makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :) It's a perfect start to my Sunday morning, it is nice to remember now and then that you really can do ANYTHING.

What do You Want?

“Learn to ask for what you want. The worst people can do is not give you what you ask for which is precisely where you were before you asked.” — Peter McWilliams

I'm all about quotes lately, i found this @ http://galadarling.com/ I love her blog; it is very positive, fun and often inspiring.

I always ask for what i want. Just ask nicely and with a smile; you will most likely get it!

Who Do You Want to Be?

"I remember someone once telling me that the definition of good styling is when you look at the picture and you want to be the woman in the photos."
-Rachel Weisz in the October issue of Vogue

I ADORE this qoute! I love when I look at a picture and it inspires me to do something different with myself.It could be something as trivial as trying a new shade of nail polish, but it's the little things that make me happiest.

This past weekend i went to South Carolina for Rob's boot camp graduation. Southern people are sooooo polite, i was actually called Ma'am a few times!
