I'm beginning this post by telling you that I'm going to blog again.

I'm on summer vacation and other than doing the normal summer vacation things such as kayaking, going to NYC, dog sitting, eating peanut butter, not doing my laundry, baking, swimming, Whole Foods, eating more peanut butter and realizing I have zero clean clothes and a suitcase overflowing with (dirty) clothes, I was forced to do gross amounts of laundry. After making a dent in the mountain of clothes I decided to have a quiet Monday night at home where I watched
New Years Eve
I hadn't seen it yet and it was SUPER cheesy, but that is my favorite type of movie so I enjoyed it a lot.
This movie includes every celebrity on the planet.
Sarah Jessica Parker is in it, and it is just hard to look at her as anyone besides Carrie Bradshaw.

It also caused me to remember my book of resolutions I started at the beginning of the year.

I know it is a little late
but it is never to late to begin New Year's Resolutions...or add new ones.

I'm blogging more
So here we go.

I just finished my first read of the summer!
The book was 
In Zainesville.
by Jo Anne Beard
The book is really interesting. The novel is narrated from the perspective of a 14 year old teenager living in the 70's with a dysfunctional family, and other teenage issues.
I enjoyed the book,it was funny a throwback to the awkward years we often try to forget about.  
I think it would make a great movie...hint hint to any movie producers out there reading my blog.

I enjoyed my read here.
do not worry, he is not dead
just enjoying the summer sun.

Anyway tomorrow I'm off to try to finish packing...
I'm moving to East Haddam for the summer
and considering I forgot to pack just about everything...down to my makeup bag...for the NYC trip
I'm going to go through all my suitcases 100 times to make sure I pack everything!

Need new book suggestions.
Any books.
and thank you.

Good to be back
and yes i've been baking...

newest treat
Nutella Marshmallow Toffee Cookies

I'm Alive!


I know you were worried about me.
or I hope to believe you were.

Just finished performing as a muse in Xandau at Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma!
Glamorous "ladies" 

The show was a blast and featured all CLO music and even ROLLER SKATING!
Scared yet...don't worry I only fell like once
plus maybe 400 more times after the first time
I'm alive to tell the tale so all is well!

I'm sorry I haven't blogged in forever. School has been a crazy whirlwind and life has been happening somewhere in between there. I'm hoping that I can blog more now this semester.
But a quick recap of what has been going on:

I've been

Rode the subway for the FIRST TIME while in NYC

Running around like crazy!

I'm excited.


I ran 6.5 miles in 55 minutes!
I've been thinking about entering a 10k for awhile but been tentative because I wasn't sure if I could run the distance.
But I finally ran my goal, so I entered it this past weekend and am really excited!

My reward after 
and of course 

Cookies...these are my newest creation.
they are Cocoa Peanut Chip Oatmeal Greek Yogurt Cookies.

these cookies have:
no butter
no oil
no sugar(sort of)
no additives 
I like to think of them as being semi-healthy.
I don't even know if they qualify as a "cookie"
besides the fact that they include chocolate...but really what do I eat that doesn't involve chocolate.
but I will call them that because it makes my heart happy to know I am eating a cookie.

(not a great pic.)
they are really really yummy
like I eat them 6 times a day yummy...

but I wish I would of had a dozen of these after my run! 
maybe my treat for accomplishing the 10k
good thought?
Still waiting to apply for my job there.
My dreams will come true.

While I'm waiting for my cookie dreams to come true.
 I made some little girls Princess dreams come true.
I am now a princess for children's birthday parties! This weekend was my first party. I was Rapunzel at Sierra's 6th birthday. I have never had so much fun at a party. We danced, sang, made bookmarks, played games, read stories, ate cake, and open gifts. Could you ask for a better day?

Picture of Me and the birthday girl!

Look at that HAIR!

Want to know more about the parties??

I need to start and finish writing my history paper


Keep happy thoughts.

Now, who wants to fold my laundry??

Is this gross?

I'm kind of obsessed with fruit and vegetable smoothies...
I know it looks gross...but don't knock it before you try!

Green Smoothie
1/4 cup OJ
1/4 cup Carrot Juice
Handful of Spinach(about 1 to 1 1/2 cups, I think)
1/2 Strawberries, Mangos, Pineapple
1/4 cup Blueberries
1/2 Banana...if wanted.

I know this is gross.
My obsession with Reddi Whip.
Some people are addicted to pizza...
Some people are addicted to cocaine...
 I'm addicted to Reddi Whip.
I will put it on anything...and EVERYTHING.

There is nothing that Reddi Whip doesn't taste good with.
ok, kidding. 
but seriously the stuff is like crack.

I'm "Reddi" for ANYTHING:

Except my History paper that is due Friday.

Must get more reinforcements(Reddi Whip) for help.

:) xoxo

The Sooner who didn't own Red...

This past weekend was the first game day of the season, and me being the biggest football fan ever, owns nothing red.
I thought that I had red.
Seriously I did.
Anyway, I went to go take my car to a parking lot down the street, because we were parking cars at my house($$) and I was not going to the game. So after our driveway was full I didn't want to be locked into my house.

I might of parked in a parking lot with a Hancock Fabrics in it.
I might of walked in and purchased some cheesy OU fabrics.
I might of sewed the tacky fabrics together to make a sash.
I might have something red and OU to wear to games.

(sorry about my hair, please don't judge to was so hot and I was already sweating like a pig. Besides, my hair is getting so long. And developing a mind of its own, I think I'm developing a lion's mane. AHHH!)

Look at our cute makeshift parking sign.
(we took scrapbook paper and taped it together to the back of cardboard box!)

We earned some money!
And on top of that OU won! 

But the best part is I finally got to see The Help.
It was great! 
I really thought the movie was a good adaptation of the book, and even more surprising I liked Emma Stone! I'm usually not the biggest fan of her's but the past two movies she has been in(Crazy Stupid Love, and the Help) I have really enjoyed her.

Now I wish I could say I'm reading something just as inspirational and interesting as The Help....but right now I'm reading

not the most interesting say it nicely.

Oh well, off to enjoy the PERFECT weather we are having right now and eat dinner on my front porch!

Then to the piano...quiz tomorrow!
say prayers.
lots of them.
