houston we have a problem...

I recently discovered this jewelry website...

I'm going to need someone to stage an intervention

or I need somebody to buy me a present

maybe you could stage an intervention and then buy me a present to ease the pain

It's up to you...let me know what you decide

and remember that I like earrings (and necklaces....and bracelets..oh and if you stumble upon a ring I wouldn't be opposed...)

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to this guy:
(my Dad...not my brother)

Some things to note about my Dad-

  • he has the greatest sense of humor
  • he'd rather be watching golf or playing golf than doing anything else
  • he likes black licorice
  • he's tall
  • he got a new golf club and now proceeds to sit with it in his lap in his recliner and will poke me with it until I finally relent and get up to do something for him.
  • he likes TV
  • he thinks everything I watch is dumb (the feeling is mutual by the way)
  • he's good at sports
  • he likes to read
  • he likes good music (Crosby, Stills, and Nash excluded)
  • he leaves his shoes all over the 6 pairs out at a time
  • he's awesome and I'm lucky he's my Dad 
Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful guys out there who sacrifice their happiness and their hair to be Dads.  
Y'all are the greatest!

nerd alert

So I'm saying it loud and proud right now that I am a nerd.  I've already finished the Hunger Games series that I just started last week.

That's because all I've been doing in my free time is reading.  Oh well...I guess there's worse things I could be doing...Lindsay Lohan I'm talking to you here....

I HIGHLY recommend this series to everyone!  They were so enthralling!  Adventure, romance, suspense....perfect books.  And I was so glad that a writer finally understood that a good guy can have an ending besides imprinting on a fetus...

Anyway now on to my next series that I'm reading....the "Peaches" series.  I had read the first one before.  Now I'm on the second.  They are cute, light, fun books.  Great for summer!  Read them with me!

Dear Allergy Season,

You really suck.

Sincerely, Vanessa

Dear Benadryl,

Thank you for making me feel like I was a good way.

XOXO, Vanessa

Dear Guy who is currently helping my parents remodel their upstairs bathroom which is inconveniently located directly above my bedroom,

There's got to be a better time than 8 am to start breaking apart a bathtub with a sledgehammer....yes?

Regards, Vanessa

Dear the word "Moist",

I really don't think that anyone is comfortable with you.  And I vote we as english language users just vote to abolish you.

Sorry....not really, Vanessa

Dear Friday,

Thank you for coming back to me....and I guess I'll thank Macy's for giving me the day off to enjoy it.

Love, Vanessa
