Writer's Block. A Dedication to our 35th Like.

I recently wrote on Facebook (and by recently, I mean tonight), that was stuck between writing here, and doing homework. I was like, "yeah! I feel like writing!" But I was having a crazy creativity block. It's probably all the dull physics I ingested this evening, or the fact that my English paper is totally late. Or that my finals are on Monday, and I'm semi freaking out.

Well anywho's, I begged for "likes" on our Facebook page, lo & behold, our dear friend David Knighton Brandi liked us. Out of guilt. Which is exactly what I was aiming for! Mmmwahaha... I actually haven't seen David in a few good years. We were all in band together. Woo! But now we're all old and adults.

So here's your post David. Sorry it's nothing "special". I'm in a very dry mood. In the intent of leaving this post on a good note, I walked into an Ann Taylor yesterday, and wanted to buy everything. But alas, I am poor. Maybe someday you can help me pick out some fabulous clothes.

-The End.

A Happy Birthday to Lix.

It's her birthday today! The big 2-2. Gross. I mean, yay! It's just gross because we don't ever want to be old.

Anyway, here is a list of reasons of why I am really fond of Alixx, and reasons our friendship is the best ever. Happy Birthday!
  • She loves horses. I've loved horses my entire life. The second I found out she loves them, I knew this friendship was for life. 
  • She owns Remy, a red hot Mustang. Yes. Another thing I've loved my entire life. 
  • So obviously you can start to tell that we love a lot of the same things. It's a reason I am fond of her. It makes life easy. 
  • She's awkward. This friendship is based on lots of awkwardness. But it's the fact that we mutually understand why/how the other feels when things get awkward. 
  • She allows me to be angry when something pisses me off. She's my #1 need-to-rant-to person. 
  • She's the first to laugh at my stories. And she doesn't just pity laugh, she laughs then keeps the story/conversation going. We come up with some crazy things. 
  • In comparison to a lot of other friendships out there, we haven't been friends for that long. But I bet we're cooler than a lot of other friendships out there. We call our first three years of high school "wasted time" because we weren't friends till senior year. Why were we wasting such precious time?!? Actually those previous three years, we both thought the other was too cool to be our friend. Silly. 
  • She loves cooking. Which makes cooking together quite the adventure. 
  • She's super smart, even though she's incredibly humble about it. This is like two reasons in one. 
  • All of our texts are 2-3 pages long. They're very rarely short, we have a lot to say! 
  • We share the same viewpoints on a lot of stuff.  I would say that's an important quality in getting along with your best friend. 
  • And last, but definitely not least, she loves Lady Gaga. Not a "oh yeah, I love her too" but then goes home and doesn't like her. She LOVES her, just as much as I do. Which is a lot. You could say it was what really set our best friendship into warp speed. Yeah, we were pretty good friends before, but then Gaga comes along and does what she does. Magic. 
So there it is. Happy Birthday, Lix. You're the best friend ever! 
We played tennis together Senior year. It was a BLAST. 

Pigeon & Wookie. Best friends. 


And we were in band together. 

Our San Diego band trip Senior year! 


And us present day. 

Us dancing before the Monster Ball! 

Like omg!

A Tinsy Tiny Problem.

I am a broke college student. There, I said it. For one more semester next spring I am paying for my schooling out of pocket. Yeah yeah, it's only community college prices, but still. That $150/month is semi detrimental when it comes to this problem I have - I love shopping. So since I cannot go shopping any time soon, I am going to cyber-window-shop. And I am going to show you some things I am looking at. 

Pretty much all things Steve Madden: 

But I am particularly fond of these. I love ankle straps. 
You could pretty much point out any Steve shoe and I would find a way to rock it. Another trend I am loving? Boots. Not just ordinary brown/black-to-the-knee-boots. But biker-esque or military-style boots. 

Oh man if I had money...

I would buy this Chambray shirt from Levi's. Or really any other source. 

I also need this immediately. 
Kate Spade Sparkle Summit Brynn

I love the Versace for H&M line. Hello, Love.
Leather Dress
And this leather coat is why I wish I lived in a city that got colder than 45 in the winter. C'mon Arizona. 
Versace for H&M Coat
When I think of Versace, and when I think of leather with gold trimmings, I think of Lady Gaga's Edge of Glory music video. She wore vintage Versace throughout. I have never seen anything more beautiful. And that may be why I love the Versace for H&M line so much. 

Basically what you can gather from this post is that I am craving every single thing out of my price range. It sucks when you have a price range of $0-$5. Sigh... Off to look at more fashion blogs. 

P.S. Something that confuses me about women with fashion blogs - how do they afford to buy all their clothes?! I just can't get over it. If you want some recommendations on blogs to read, just comment or shoot me a message. I'd be happy to share. Some of them are listed on the side panel. 

P.S.S. It's the holiday season. A season of giving. If any of you are feeling generous, I will happily take any of these items. Thanks.

**Update. (I originally wrote this post like 2 weeks ago). Since then, I walked around the mall, which I have not been to in AGES. And I found a super cute leather-looking skirt from Forever 21. They don't have a picture of it online. So just imagine it in your head. And last night I had an epiphany that it would look awesome with the above chambray shirt, awesomely patterned tights, and either a killer heel or a cool boot. 

SECOND EPIPHANY! The leather skirt -think this kind of fit, just in black leather. I need to pair it with my white button down, with a v-neck sweater over top. And again with the tights/shoes. 

I heart outfit epiphanies.

ASU game pictures and such.

Alixx also has a post on this... fyi. 

Here are some pictures of the ASU vs. U of A game we attended last Saturday. We went with a group of fun people and had a blast! Yes, ASU lost. No, I don't really care. I'm technically not even a student there yet (next fall!). It also goes back to the fact that I'm not a die hard football fan. I love going to the games, but it's more of an atmosphere thing. I was CONSTANTLY asking Sky what was going on. He laughed at me a lot. 

Pre-Game... Keep scrolling through to see if we remain friends through this bitter rivalry. 

What a cute BF I have... 

"A" for Arizona!... Or America. Or Alixx! 

Woo taking the field! 

A mixing of the bands! Which is completely acceptable, even if the schools absolutely hate each other. The guy that was sitting behind me was boo-ing non stop, so I turned around with my angry face and "WOOOOOOOOO"'d him. It was awesome. I think he was slightly intoxicated, so I couldn't explain the rules of Marching Band to him. Bands pretty generally like other bands. And non-band nerds will just never understand.  

This was within the last minute of the game. Even an "ehh" football fan like myself had a pounding heart. 

STILL FRIENDS!! Duhh... Like we would let some silly school rivalry tear this apart. Please.

Where have I been all your life?... Recently.

Oh hey... So yeah, may as well address the elephant in this online room. I haven't blogged in a couple weeks. I'M SORRY. Really I am. I always judge those people that write on their blogs only every so often... And now I am one of them. I have bowed my head in shame. So here are some pictures snapped from my phone from the last couple of weeks of my life. They are in no specific order because I am a.) lazy and b.) really need to get to some homework before I go to bed. 

So I have been:
Laughing at my insanely cute cat & the way he lays. 

 Seeing the ironic things that make life great - this is some math homework I got back... Second & Friday were two fill in the blank answers. Fate. 

I've been hanging out with my love-muffin.  

Watching pretty flowers being planted, then feeding them to my dog.  

Getting crazily excited for this masterpiece. Another thing you'll have to deal with on our blog - we are devoted Lady Gaga fans. Alixx received one of these also. This is the entire Born This Way album on 14 records with art on every single one of them. I'm in love.  

I've been insanely busy planning my Mom's 50th birthday party with my sisters and step-dad. It turned out great!!  

I have a ton more pictures of this night on my camera. It was beautiful! All purple/black/zebra! 

This is the cake we ordered her from Caketini! It was huge & beautiful... And delicious!  

I've been laughing at my brothers. And my boyfriend, who's plan this was. Caption: Zebra Mummy!  

Work. Work. Work. With this picture and the one below, I guess I should make it known that I just got a little seasonal job at Bath&Body Works! So with this addition to my regular desk job, for reals. Work... It's all I do when I'm not doing school.  

I am ADDICTED to this lip shine. It is minty & wonderful. Basically the entire C.O. Bigelow line is sent from the heavens above. Go and get yourself some. The stuff above goes on like a gloss, but then just makes your lips soft like you have chapstick on, and it really does freshen your breath!  

I've been falling more and more in love with my dog, Macy. She really is the cutest, most sweetest thing ever. She decided she had to come snuggle in my room one morning while I was getting ready for school/work.  

I've been painting my nails like they're a 1970 Chevy Chevelle :D 

I've been getting great fortunes from Panda Express.  

Skylar and I had a date night on Friday. We ate at Chipotle & went and saw Tower Heist. It was okay... not as funny as we thought it would be.  

I've been frying up some pork chops for the above mentioned dude. These were divine. and the recipe can be found here. Thanks, Betty!!

And finally, I've been loving that my cats & dogs are finally getting along. 

So there you have it. I promise I'll post more. Love, Kels.
