stagecoach countdownnn and yayy!

soo excited, i got approved to take the entire next week off, starting NOW! of course, it's 824pm and i'm still at work, but that's neither here nor there. actually, obviously it's here, as am i, but that's because i don't have internet at home, and i just finished up with some of my work for the week and missed going to a comedy show with B and C downtown. hooopefully they finish slightly drunk and want me to meet them for drinks!

and yay, phone call boy is continuing on his plot to monopolize all of my time and last night, hilariously enough, as he drunkenly said his goodbyes, he said, "i like you" . i was like, "uh, i like you back?" haha i felt like i was in middle school but it was SO adorable! SO i am going to try as Patti of Millionaire Matchmaker says and resort to my healthy, pre-two-long-term-relationships-after-which-i-didn't-want-to-become-close-to-anyone-for-a-long-time and use her real honest rules! if any of you are a fan, you may be aware of which one i'm speaking of...the "no sex outside of a monogamous relationship" rule. it doesn't matter how long you're dating, how much you hang out, if he hasn't committed to you and you alone, don't do it! and i'm going to imagine tonight's episode in my head if i am even tempted, because Patti definitely told off one of her girls and i would never want to hear myself described the way that girl was! you should really start watching the show if you haven't - Patti's rules are basically failproof!

finnnally, i am FREAKING. STARVING. According to, I can only eat 1090 calories a day if I want to lose 2 pounds a week. which i do. today, i've eaten like 1120 and i am SO. HUNGRY. but the problem is that I was 145.6 this morning and if I'm going to be at Stagecoach, aka it-will-be-84-degrees-in-the-shade-so-you'll-want-to-wear-absolutely-nothing, i need to be prepared to expose a little more then nothing. or i need to go misting. i think i'll probably go misting.

have an amazing weekend everyone!! i'll be moving into B's by next week so i am sooo exciteD!

stagecoach weekend!

just wanted to start off by saying that i don't know about you guys, but sometimes people write multiple blog entries before i get a chance to read them, so i go back and comment on old ones and i always wonder if they read those comments since they aren't on the newest blogs? so yes, i still stalk a ton of y'all's blogs, i just may not be commenting on the most recent entries!
this weekend is stagecoach!! major highlights (for me) are obviously kenny chesney, brad paisley, little bit town, miranda lambert, lady antebellum and the zac brown band...hopefully i'll find some new music to love, too, but i know part of why i'm so excited is definitely spending time in the campgrounds prepping for the big concert!

And on the heels of my last post, I also wanted to point out the contrast between kellie pickler's appearance in her 'red high heels' video and her 'best days of your life' video. HOW did they not do a little better job for the former? She looks verrry TPT (Trailer Park Trash, according to one of my fav shows, The Millionaire Matchmaker), when she is clearly capable of looking glamorous! And I think she had probably lost more weight by the second video, also.

Speaking of which, my weightloss efforts are TOTALLY bumming me out - i have to admit that I'm basically half-assing them (unfortunately not resulting in the effect of losing half my arse). I really need to get back on the wagon because I'm creeping back up and there's no excuse but my own laziness. I'm not sure if part of it is because as it gets closer to summer, it's more excusable to fake tan myself, and tan fat looks better then real fat, so I'm not as self conscious with the extra 10 pounds. either way, i need to shape up, but i think what i really need is a ROOMMATE again because then I don't just mindlessly eat (i also don't have TV or Internet, so I really don't have annnything to do but shop or sit at home and read, whichhh i tend to eat while doing because i like to read while eating, and I think now I have them associated together). AH maybe that's my solution and I need to stop doing things while eating! Then I would get bored while I was eating and stop so I could do somethign more entertaining!!! I WILL KEEP YOU ALL UPDATED I MAY HAVE FOUND THE SOLUTION TO MY LIFELONG OBSSESSION WITH MY WEIGHT!!!

and p.s. things are still going very well with phone-call boy...he told me to book every night from when he gets back until he moves for him...and the sad thing is that i totally would. i really really hope that we get along as well in person as we do on the phone.

i just wanna free fall for a while

so, 'date' with boy from friday was very telling...i realized that sober, we don't have much in common/much to talk about. it might explain why i drank so much when we hung out at bars - i was wondering if it was because i was nervous, but after this weekend, i've realized it's because i'm bored and if i don't have something to say, i just put my straw in my mouth! so i don't think i'll be interested in seeing him very much anymore, especially because there is...

boy from in cahoots! best friend b and i went there on wednesday (it's a country line dancing bar with $2.50 drinks on wed. nights) and we were on our way out (to go meet boy from friday and his bud, but that's another story), and i met boy from in cahoots! he is suuuper tall (yay!) and very cute and i gave him my number (actually, his phone was dead so he gave me his, and i said i absolutely do not call guys, so you'd better think of a way to contact me, so he texted himself from my phone), and he ended up calling me in the middle of the day on saturday, and we talked for forty minutes on the phone...he wanted to hang out but obviously i was hanging out with boy from friday that night, and he left for a business trip yesterday for two weeks. so, you'd think that would be the end of that, but he called again last night and we talked for fifty minutes! i can't believe it! it's amazing how much i forget that you can have fun with a guy without going and getting drinks.

i am toootally obssessed with kellie pickler's 'best days of your life' video! she looks absolutely amazing and is a total weight loss inspiration. speaking of which, holy cow, who knew how much weight carrie underwood has lost since becoming a celebrity?

I understand that she's a celebrity and has trainers and tons and tons of time to dedicate to looking perfect, but it is seriously incredible what a transformation she's made. She not only looks more slender, she also looks incredibly fit and toned, as noted by her thighs in the second to last picture. i feel the same way about kellie pickler in the video, especially compared to taylor swift, who displays the toneless thighs of the naturally thin, which are also desirable but completely unattainable for someone who isn't naturally thin (and someone who needs to be in decent shape for her job). And thus, my Easter resolution is back on the diet wagon! Good thing about cutie guy from in cahoots is that he's so darn tall he won't be able to see if i don't lose a pound :)

happy belated easter everyone! i may not be here all week because i have a stupid trainer to go to for work all week until 5 :(

payday, please come soon

Dear Payday,
I know that sometimes you come early, sometimes even a few days early (thanks to holidays and Sundays), but this week, do you mind just doubling yourself? I'll even wait until the 15th if you only come fat and happy, because I've discovered a few things I absolutely have to have, and given the damage the bars are going to do to my paycheck this weekend, I won't be able to get them until you do me the honor of gracing my checking account.
American Eagle 'Favorite' Shorts - on sale for $19.95/pair - just long enough to cover where my thighs touch but not so long that they're bermuda style or anything else particularly thigh-unflattering:
love this nantucket red colornavy blue is so easy to match with!
you can never have too many cute/comfy khaki shorts - perfect with a white tank for summer beach days!
How stinking fun is this color?? Imagine the contrast with a good (fake, Mystic-style, since I never let my poor body see the light of day) tan!
Sugar Platinum Body Shimmer - $35 @ Sephora, $1.99 @ Ross (go me!) - absolutely delicious, super shimmery, bronz-y and beautiful sugar platinum body powder...EVERY time I wear it I get compliments on how healthy and shimmery my skin looks from men and women. If it's not at Ross I might have to start paying retail for it!
and of course, Lilly Pulitzer's Late Spring/Early Summer line. I just watched the preview video of the photo shoot and it's going to be beauuutiful!! so excited!!
also excited about 'boy from friday night' . . . i asked him a question and in response he said, "well i don't know, but i have been seeing this girl from va..." we've been 'seeing' each other? yay? haha i loooove new crushes, always the funnest, giddiest time :) if only the honeymoon crush phase lasted forever!

omg yay!!!!!

omg yayyyy he asked me to dinner!! boy from friday night!! yayyyy! haha unfortunately so did someone else (boy from sunday, a new character), but i don't remember meeting boy from sunday (i met a lot of people and don't remember all their names) but FORTUNATELY i declined his invitation because just like an hour ago boy from friday was like um do you remember that we have dinner plans on saturday night? thank goodness he already realizes that i tend to lose all memory function when i drink :)

ok also obssessed with these songs right now:
wild at heart - gloriana
sweet thing - keith urban
is it guilty in here, or is it just me - miranda lambert
his kind of money (my kind of love) - eric church
-- this one is specifically funny, the lyrics go, "i ain't got his kind of money, and i prob'ly never will, but i got a buck that says his twenties and his hundred dollar bills ain't gonna satisfy you forever, they can only buy so much, i ain't his kind of money, but he ain't got my kind of love." my best bud b and i were driving with her brother and her brother's friend (who i was seeing at the time) and when we put this song on, he (drunkenly) sang along, except every time eric church said "i ain't got his kind of money", this guy said BUT WHAT IF YOU DO!? BECAUSE I DO! I HAVE HIS KIND OF MONEY AND MY KIND OF LOVE!

...obviously that was a short lived relationship :) haha this has turned into a boy blog!

seriously, what do boys think?

ok, so boy from friday night has wound his way in and out of my good graces, but fortunately for him he is at this point in them. we hung out the tuesday night after we met (good), he texted me the next day (good), and then on friday night he let me know that if he 'made it out' he'd text me, but if not i was welcome to 'text him if i was lonely' (bad). i was like w. t. f., are you serious? if i was lonely, which i have never found myself to be, i would not BOOTY TEXT someone! GOOD LORD! so, i thought he was written off completely, another drop in the bucket of men, until on sunday he invited me to a bbq, then came to the bar i was at (since i did not go to the bbq) and waited in line again to see me (good), although this time the line wasn't moving so he didn't get in so he ended up leaving (indifferent). so his extra efforts (and the series of four text messages, unresponded to, documenting said efforts) rewarded him with an inquiry as to his taco tuesday plans, and we hung out again last night (good) and basically i really like him! ah! so now i have to play the stupid waiting game again and see whether or not it's reciprocated, but i think the fact that he held my hand (not initiated by me) for a decent amount of the night is a good sign, right?

annnd herein lies the problem, though. if he and i keep hanging out (and hopefully we will), boy from new york has once again escalated his efforts to come visit. he has been texting me and suggesting weekends and so forth (my work schedule is very choppy though), so what happens if he ends up planning on coming out and i have boy from friday night wanting to hang out too!? but i don't want to discourage boy from new york until i know that there is at least some fair amount of 'potential' with boy from friday night!

AND my weightloss efforts are annoying...i was at 140.0 this morning but i went out last night, so i know it was due to dehydration and not genuine weightloss. at the same time, it was verrrry relieving because if i had been as dehydrated as i was and still up around 145, i'd have been heartbroken. rumor has it the scale here at work weighs people light, so i may have to make a trip down and do a little experiment :) hopefully i'll be able to kick this weight in the booty in time for summer, though...i know know know that if i start working out more i'll get more toned whether i lose weight or not, but i am just soooo perpetually lazy! i ran a mile and a half yesterday and felt so accomplished, but seriously, i think that is like a basic human necessity and not something to be particularly proud of. i've been using to track my food and weight and it's kind of depressing to watch the upward climb my weight tracker was making, but now that it's back down it's more fun to track my food and try and figure out ways i can stay under my calorie limit but still feel full. i'd totally recommend the site - it's free!

i also just scored this little lilly number off of ebay, so i'll have to tell you all how it fits once i get it in the mail - i'm hoping flattering, not bulky:

you never know with some of the clothes, but i think this one seems fairly versatile and could even get a long sleeved shirt under it for chilly days. i'm really wondering about the length, too, but for only $36 + shipping it's worth trying.
