I felt the need to blog. Not sure why. Probably because I have nothing else to do?
I have been busy doing absolutely nothing…. so I’m watching Nip/Tuck (what else did you expect?) and journaling and all of that business!
I’ll start with last night.
Cassie and I always have amazing adventures. We first went to the mall… and saw Miss Erin Sunday, hard at work :) After that, we went to Barnes and Noble so I could use up the rest of my gift card (birthday present courtesy of Grandmother Smith) and with that last 15 bucks, I bought this:

“The Wild Things” by Dave Eggers. Basically, as you can probably guess by the cover, is loosely based off of Where The Wild Things Are. and as I’ve read so far, it is very much like the movie. So… we’ll see. But at least the cover is cute right?? :)
Then….. we went to Olive Garden. HA! Seriously, it is my favoriteee restaurant ever. EVER. But… we had the most terrible service ever. Cassie and I felt so completely… humiliated by our waiter, and his little waiter friends. We wanted to leave so, so bad. It was so bad. I really don’t want to go back anytime soon. Cassie is famous for her complaint letters (she’s sent them to a restaurant in St. Charles, MO we went to once and Westboro Baptist Church), so she sent one to Olive Garden, of course. We then went to Target for some late night Starbucks… and shopping for things we definitely don’t need.
I went because I needed a backpack for school. She went because she wanted to buy the Eclipse soundtrack. We DID leave with the backpack… but not the soundtrack. We both, however, left with new denim leggings. DUDE. we bought JEGGINGS. hahaha! Seriously don’t know why I haven’t tried them before! They are sooo comfortable. It like wearing leggings… that look like jeans. Best feeling in the world. I need more. I just might start living in these things! They were only 12 bucks… so I couldn’t pass them up!

Sigh. In. Love. :)
Today I went to Silver Dollar City with Tyler, his mom, and niece,Brylee. It was a lot of fun. The ride home took about twice the time that it was supposed to, but I’m home now and the tears are alllll dried up. So we’re good. I got to see my journalism/Yearbook teacher this evening. It almost made me sad that I won’t be going back to school to be in yearbook again. almost.

Allllright. I’m a sleepy girl, and I’d like to finish two more episodes of Nip/Tuck before bed!
:)) I love you all muchly.

Formspring is a b-word.
From here on out – mine is officially deleted.
Some stuff has been going on, involving some rather immature and silly, silly girls that I know. And after some minor confrontation, I have deleted my formspring and am going to just move on. I do not need such negativity in my life.

God is seriously such an amazing dude for all the wonderful things He’s done in my life recently. Through all of the lame “anonymous” drama, I’ve gotten to have so many good conversations with people that actually care about me. I have theee most wonderful friends in the world.
So, I’m thankful for the people in my life. I’m thankful for the good manners and love that my parents have instilled in me. And.. I’m thankful for the gifts and talents God has so generously blessed me with (and that “people” are just “soooo” jealous of). I can’t wait to actually utilize those talents and make others happy! :)
Speaking of using those lovely talents… my bakery plans are in the works. Its so exciting getting ready for school this fall and knowing that when I go home at the end of the day, my homework will be baking! :) Tyler is definitely a lucky guy.. haha <3
Lately I've been drawing up plans for what I want my "perfect" bakery to look like, what sorts of desserts and yummy things I'd want to sell, and what other fun things I'd want to make available at my little shop. As for location… that's still an iffy question. I've got quite a number of people pushing me to open one up in St. Louis. It's nearing the top of my list. :)
Tonight consists of…

(A show at The Front Porch; It definitely won’t look as exciting as this one, I can promise you that..haha)

(Coffee. Its just about all I can think about right now!)

(book shopping. I’m going to make g.o.o.d. use of this $30 gift card to Barnes & Noble.)

It feels like fall already, based on tonight’s agenda. Goodness me, I’m so ready for Autumn weather, good “Autumn music”, and cozyness.
Cassie and I are heading out in a few hours for a night of fun and sillyness. We only have a good 3 weeks together left, so we’re trying our best to make it count.
GOSH, college SUCKS. ;)

Colby was wonderful, he held my hand AND took pictures! True best friend ;)

after that, i went to see miss cassie at the tea room (that i’ll start working at in a few weeks!) and wished her a happy happy 18th birthday. she gets her first tattoo tomorrow! its a feather with scripture curving under it. it’s going to be beautifulllll.
i also took the opportunity to take a few pictures of the adorable, adorable back room that is the “hangout” for our friends at the tea room.

The other day, Miss Cassie celebrated her 18th birthday (which is actually tomorrow), by having a cupcake decorating party at the tea room in Marshfield! :)
It was so much fun. We shared sooo many laughs and creepy stories, and caught up with the friends we hadn’t seen in a few months.

birthday girl with a birthday cuppycake:)

let me tell you.. I thoroughly enjoyed the homemade buttercream icing :)
Oh and yes… I went to Florida:)

these little campers were evvvverywhere along the road in Seaside, FL. If you ever get the chance to go down there, GO. Seriously the cutest place in.the.world.

my cute little family. :) minus trevor of course. he chose not to come.. lame-o.

Tomorrow is tattoo day. I will officially be inked for the rest of my life. How… scary? And exciting.

sooo lately, as in a few hours ago, the boyfriend and i were texting it up, because i was on a forever long trip to florida (i’m here, and comfortably..on a couch. boo). we were making plans, and talking future stuff.
i’ve never been in a relationship that i’ve been able to do that…at least not in a serious sense. & its exciting.
we talked of how i’ll be starting college this fall, and i’ll be done in two years (!!!) if i pursue the culinary arts program, with my focus being baking & pastries.
of course, this is my dream job. owning my own bakery & cute little place to call my own. being able to have the creative freedom to build a business how i want it. i love the idea. however, we were thinking in terms of how realistic that idea is. of course, that got us on a whole other topic (my high level of indian blood. ha!)
then we started thinking…how possible is it for me to plan a wedding while finishing school? and how the heck will we pay for the stinkin thing?
we are way in over our heads, and i think we both know that. but for some reason… there’s a sense of security in all of it. its quite the lovely feeling.
anywho… just some thoughts. i mostly can’t sleep… so this is the product of my newfound insomnia :)

p.s. while the boy and i were talking bakeries and businesses, and how springfield will most definitely not need a 4th bakery (and not to mention all the coffee shops that offer pastries & baked goods…), and how that really upsets me because i LOVE springfield. i love this area of missouri with my whole heart and i never ever want to live anywhere else… and the thought of having a business here that is exactly needed kind of upsets me. he then asked me if i would feel better if he took me to see Band of Horses in october in kansas city. ummm yes. i do feel better:) perfect boyfriend award goes to tyler. :)
