this song/clip bring back so many memories. if you haven’t seen wicker park, i suggest you watch it as soon as possible. i may be the only one who loves this movie but i don’t even care. i think it was perfectly done…its amazing how an ending can make up for an entire movie. eh ignore this post…its one of those days.
so my lovely friend B (britt blackbird) introduced me to mumford & sons quite a while ago but i just have to claim my love for them. they are truly amazing. favorite song right now would be ‘awake my soul’…the lyrics are perfect. adding it to my list of exclusive favorites. Today has been a mumford&sons kind of day. <3
seriously this guy completes me. he is madly talented… he speaks french, he can sing, he can dance, he is a straight up artist. i fell in love with him back in 10 things i hate about you and he added to this love with his role in 500 days of summer. lets not forget inception or his appearance on SNL. or how creative he is, just do some research on http://www.hitrecord.org -mmm #ilovehim. (yes i realize this is not a tweet) here is his intro on SNL just to give you a little glimpse of my love for him. *side note* his DETAIL magazine cover was the only thing to make it alive from my car accident, that and myself obviously

Thats pretty much how the year ended. I have to say that it was an amazing year but i have a feeling that 2011 will exceed 2010′s events greatly. More weddings, more concerts, and more trips. *can’t wait*
so a friend of mine started doing these happy lists a couple of years ago…just send a list of the top 10 things that make you happy at that moment. welllll i save all of them. because they are hilarious to read months and almost a year later. so this is dedicated to hollzballz, B, gingy, myself and helen keller. here are a few misc. things that made them happy in the last year or so…
H- 5. Laughing out loud when I think of how by playing the miming game you almost called yourself a biatch but caught it just in time. HAHA
Me- 9.Heavenly father…I know a little mushy. But I don’t think I would have gotten through yesterday without Him & my prayers.
10. Shoes. Yup I just went from Heavenly Father to shoes.
Aubs- 6. quoting “I Love You, Man”
Chels- 8. I slept in till 11
B- 4.) i cant wait to wear my new engagement dress
Aubs- 6. thinking about adding blue in my hair. keyword= thinking. no worries, I’m not really doing it.
Chels- 7. THE video… I wish I would have had time to watch it at work… it would have made my day THAT much better
(^That is by far the best video from that house. [Holly escaping from a flying cricket? priceless.])
H- 10. 3 day old hair…
me- 1. I was doing laundry last night, smelt one of my bags that I used in California…mmm I MISS IT. can we go soon? please?
Chels- 2. the fabulous peanut butter bars that haunt my dreams, but still make me happy (and hungry…)
Aubs- 6. Returning my shoes that made my feet look like Hercules and getting cash back. I can’t pull off the strappy sandal look I’ve decided.
(i don’t know why Aubs but number 6 on your lists are seriously the best?? )
me- 6. Breakfast- dr. pepper and ritz crackers. Yup. Mmm.
H- 7. 16 and Pregnant. It really put things into perspective for me…abstinence is for me!!!!
B- 10.) i have the coolest roommates.
Let’s not forget the picture that came with one of these happy lists…GO TEAM?
Our birthday trip to California…
So for the past few days…my back has been completely out. We’re talkin’ barely able to walk…can’t even get comfortable to sleep. It has been to say the least, awful. As you’ve seen in my last post, i moved into our new home which is absolute perfection (ok with a few bumps here and there). One of those bumps has been the fact that my back has been out so I’m extremely limited on what I am able to do. I want to get my house completely perfect all at once but i have finally accepted the fact that i need to rest and take the vicodin that the kind doctor gave me (heh) and THEN i can get it to where i want it to be. But until then the vicodin and icy/hot will be nursing me back to health. So with my back being the way it is, i can’t do anything sociable. But let me tell you, it has its perks…my mom/roomies have brought me food…actually the only perk is being served food, haha. OH and getting completely caught up on Dexter. I love that show.
Although I’m barely able to walk, i was given a small spurt of time to go with my roomie hollzballz to IKEA. Now Ikea is absolutely amazing. There is just no if’s and’s or but’s about that one. Great looks, great prices, great meatballs (you know you love them). BUUUUUT….the way a large end table comes in a thin box is a hint to the work you have ahead of you. And an understanding of the extremely low price tag next to it. And lets face it, those wordless directions DO NOT help. Ikea is one of the many reasons why A. I need to be fluent in swedish or B. Have a boyfriend/husband. I’m gonna say that A would be the easier one to achieve at this point in time.
And now on a Saturday night (actually Sunday morning now) i am barely comfortably sitting here on the floor trying to put together a chalkboard for our kitchen. I should call it quits since the dinky end table next to me took TWO HOURS to put together. TWO HOURS PEOPLE. i know i am blonde…but i ain’t stupid. Thankfully… The Sound of Music is keeping me company (and encouraging me somehow).
I hope those of you who actually read this…had a more eventful Saturday night than i did.
oh no one does it like Maria…
