eating crunchy peanut butter out of the jar.
with my finger.
and it's the bottom of the jar so my whole hand is peanut buttery.
...wait, it gets better:
it's my roommate's peanut butter.
ok, now that i've gotten that confession out of my system, are you ready to die rachel zoe style? [i definitely just got peanut butter on the keyboard. sh!t. now she'll be able to smell it [or sense it or something] when she gets back...i should have been more crafty about this]
LEOPARD PRINT SNEAKERS!!!! NINE WEST AND NEW BALANCE TEAMED UP FOR 2009 (yes, i'm behind the curve...forgive me, i LIVE ON A WARSHIP!) to develop amaaaaaazingly cute sneakers!! must. own. immediately!!
speaking of must own immediately, looking at everyone's wintery snow pictures reminded me that it is still winter, which had me looking at some winter weather jewelry, and i am really, really, really considering this gorgeous bib necklace - it's been in instyle, people, etc...
stella + dot natasha bib necklace
and it's soo pretty and versatile and inevitably timeless...
and speaking of snow-envy, i decided to participate - here's my poor, northern virginian snow-bound home:
and that was before the 10-20" they were expecting today!!
before i forget, i want to add that the caveat to my peanut butter eating is that we're finally in a port, so i can replace my roommate's jar tomorrow and she'll never be the wiser! i am not of the 'steal food and don't replace it' variety, don't worry :D speaking of being in port, i hung out with these two hoodlums last night (and a third hoodlum, not pictured, in case you're keeping track):
i hear this morning someone making fun of one of them for getting in a fight...let's all laugh at the fact that i don't even remember said fight, and i was THERE! it's like my drunk memories are stored in a different part of my brain...
ok, so my top two tuesday (jobs), a la Jimmy Choos and A Baby, Too:
realistically: i would love to laterally transfer and become a public affairs officer (possible now that i got my SWO pin!!)
not-feasibly: i would love to be a waitress!! i used to be a server at morgan run country club in rancho sante fe, and i loved it! i love working in food service - you can fix every problem and there is always a way to make the customer happy! the only problem is that with a paycheck like that, i was experiencing way too much "champagne tastes on a beer budget"
sidenote: got care packages today from my mom and cousin, very very thoughtful and if you know a girl on deployment, send her MAGAZINES! they are a hot commodity out here...the other most popular thing i received in my care package? bacon salt! yes!!!!! thank you mom! slogan? "everything should taste like bacon". i wholeheartedly agree, bacon salt maker people. and i'm a vegetarian.
and finally, have y'all noticed everyone on facebook has a celeb pic up instead of themselves? i was like oh, lame trend, so dumb, blah blah...and then my best friends turned into britney spears and tara reid. thus, i give you my drunken celebrity doppelganger (this is so sadly accurate that my mother sent me a facebook message that said, and this is a direct quote: "stop drinking. you look terrible." - very supportive, mom. also you don't even recognize your own daughter?!!? or your own 'not' daughter?!)
and besides, i would never post such a hoochie bra showing picture if it was really me!! i tell ya!
annnyways, i also wanted to thank sweet darling Kitchen Belleicious for my first award of February!
thank you thank you thank you! i am going to pass this award on to six lovely bloggettes:
(she and i are both named alanna, and we both have the sparkles in our blog titles...it's a sign!)
some of them have very small fan bases so far, so please check out all of their blogs - they're amazing and hilarious and i read them religiously, and they're totally over the top! (in the good way, obviously)
finally, check out these two giveaways:
