I am not a PC

I did it!! After two PC's first a Gateway then a HP failed on me during my time of need, I have gone over to the other side, the MAC side! So far so good! It is definitely taking some getting used to, but I AM loving the fact that now when I am IM with my little brother or Kate, I can SEE them, so so weird, lovvviiiiing it! I also like the fact that it is white, makes it look a little girly. So as a for a review as a girl who formally was attached to PC's, I give the MAC's a A+ so far! You know what I love the most about them?? I don't get any of those creepy popups with all the different smiley faces making those loud noises, how annoying are they!!! And on another much more important note, HOW could I have not gotten a MAC sooner, Jsimps my all time favorite ( don't judge her for the weight gain people, we all have had one two many cookies in our day ) has been using Mac's for years! I am really looking forward to this weekend, my honey bunny comes into town, and we are heading to one of his SAE brothers mountain homes ( near PSU )and possibly to PSU for State Patty's Day for a little SAE reunion, should be a good time!! = ) Have a a fabulous weekend

                       In the Good Old days when Jess and Nick were still together 
                                              How cute is she = ) and Daisy too!!

                                                                  Vintage Barbie

                           Whoa!! When was Barbie Pregnant...I've obviously not been keeping up!!
                               Love this one, Barbie is such an American pastime!!

So Fashion week is over boo hoo, but I ran across something really awesome in class today, apparently this year Barbie is turning the big 50!! To celebrate this amazing milestone 50 top designers teamed up and each created an outfit to send down the runway. I thought this was so cool, that after 50 years Barbie is still going strong! Everyone is making a tribute to this iconic doll when asked what Barbie should do to celebrate her big Birthday one of my favorites Sarah Jessica Parker said " My mother wouldn't let me play with Barbie. She said no young woman would ever walk around on her tiptoes"Hope everyone had a great Tuesday..
Here a couple of looks from the runway show and of Barbie throughout the year...HAPPY BIRTHDAY BARBIE!! Thanks for the great memories!!! = ) 

Fun Facts

Country Loving

                                              Leann Rimes and has the voice of an Angel!!
                                              Jennifer Nettles excited about winning her Grammy, she said when she got to the stage "that she promised herself she was going to be cool because Paul McCartney  was in the audience and Im so not being cool..freak out! "
                                                Two of my all time loves
                                                                Love her hair!!!
This is a secret that I think only people who really spend time around me know, but I am a country music freak!! My love affair with country started with Kenny Chesney over mutiple bottles of wine and has grown from there. There is just something about the lyrics and the twang in their voice that makes me very happy! Recently while watching the Grammy's I saw Sugarland and best new artist Adele perform the song chasing pavements and ever since I go to youtube everyday and listen to them makes my day, I love how into the song Jennifer Nettles is and how she shouts out good girl to Adele at the end of the song, Im becoming a little obsessed with her, is it healthy I'm not sure! Below are a couple pictures of my favorite country people and links to youtube to some great performances!!! Happy Country YA'LL

Guess Who's Expecting!!!!

So in the midst of all the exciting Oscar coverage nothing made me more excited yesterday than clicking on  and seeing that Joel Madden and Nicole Richie are expecting another baby! If you can't tell yet, these two MAY be my favorite couple other than me and Jay of course haha. On his official website Joel posted " Whats better than winning and Oscar, I am so happy to tell everyone that Harlow is going to be a big sister! Yeaaa for them = ) Happy Monday everyone !!!

                                                        This is the Roxy Theater
                                   An Amazing book for all the girls out there that are sick of playing games                                        with men!! 

This is the scene where Berger tells Miranda that the guy is not going to call her...why??...because he is just not that into her!!
I have been wanting to see the new movie " He's just not that into you " for a while and was thrilled to find out that it was playing in my neighborhood theatre the Roxy. The movie came from the book " He's just not that into you " which was inspired by the episode in Sex and the City when Berger tells Miranda that a guy  she went out on a date with is just not that into her. So on Saturday night with plans to keep this weekend low key I decided to channel Carrie and go on a date with no one else but my city ( yes on date night ). I went to the Roxy theatre which is located on 20th and Samson, it is the sweetest little place that only shows 2 movies at a time, it has its share of yummy candy and buttery popcorn, the old women at the counter is so happy to be selling you a was such a nice evening I thought I would give it some props!

Happy Birthday Baby!

Today Jay turns 24 years old, he is headed to Baton Rouge for a Mardi Gras parade with his friends in Texas, Im jealous!! Just wanted to wish him a Happy Birthday and remind him how much I love him = ) 

Smelling the Peonies

So this week has been a particularly sad one for the city of Philadelphia, once again we have lost a brave police officer trying to keep our city safe. This time however it hits a little closer to home, John Pawlowski was the husband of one of my good friends Kimmy ( Leigh ) Pawlowski, who I grew up playing soccer with. It is deeply sad to see someone that you care about go through something like this and I just wanted to make a note and send out my prayers for her and her family, we all love her very much. It is things like this that make you realize that the things in life that we spend worrying about or complaining about are really not that important and it is so important to take a second and smell the peonies and appreciate your love ones! If you could include Kimmy, John and their son that will be born this summer in your prayers. Above is a picture I took of John and Kimmy that I took at their wedding in October during much happier times. LOVE YOU KIMMY!!

I saw these images and started thinking about how much fun it would be to have all my girlfriend over on a Sunday afternoon everyone in cocktail attire and have really great tea and sweets!! Also I tried to register for a tea set for my wedding and would you know that NO ONE carries them anymore! Maybe Im just getting old and my hangovers are getting worse but this seems like a really fun time to!!! Lets bring the tea party back!
