Hippity Hoppety Easter's on its Way!

I think i'm the only person i've ever met whose favorite holiday is actually Easter.
I love it because it's getting warm,
you get an Easter dress,
yummy Easter candy (im a candy-aholic),
and My saviour rose from the dead to bring salvation to the world!!
How much better does it get??!!

umm..what happened to the option of changing font colours??
what the mess!!??

The store is pretty much dead this month..but i mean..why wouldnt it be..it's March. What teacher decorates her room for March?
Yep..glad to be moving on to April!

My little (well, not really, but i still say that) bro is turning 12 on the 6th, but his party is Thursday. I CANNOT believe my little buddy is TWELVE! Gah it really does seem like yesterday...being 7 years older than he is, i've been more of a mom to him than a sibling. Now that he's getting older, we're hanging more, and I like it. I love my brother!

So i'm making some cupcakes for my mom's side family Easter get together..which by the way, Ty's meeting the Averitte side that day!
Any suggestions for decorating them!? Something cute and Eastery??

Perfect Situation.

The title of this blog comes from the Weezer song by the same name. I'm a huge Weezer fan, but this song AND video was probably my all time favorite by ol' Rivers. I think I was a freshman in high school when it came out..and i was in loooove with it forEVER.

I found my Easter dress today, at Ross! I LOVE THAT STORE. Seriously, i could buy so much there it's ridiculous. I miss the one in Phoenix..that one was the BOMBBBBB.
AND it was the first dress I tried on! This seems to happen a lot when I'm dress shopping. Either its just that I hate shopping for dresses so much that I just THINK I love the first one I try on, OR that I really am that lucky.
My prom dress was like, the 3 one I tried on. I RARELY have ever had to hunt for an Easter dress. My graduation dress was the first one I picked out.
Seriously, I'm sure I'll leave the first bridal shop with my wedding dress.

Oh! And Monday night I made these cute little hair things! I love wearing them!

Keeping up.

I'm finding I'm having trouble keeping up with my blog as much as I used to. It's mainly because i've been constantly either sick to my stomach, or my head...darn this hay fever the beautiful spring time causes...i have TERRIBLE allergies.
I simply just do not want to read or type or anything when i'm feeling so sick.

Though, I feel like a good bit of this could be controlled if I just ate when and what I'm supposed to. I'm hypoglycemic, and I'm supposed to eat 6 small, nutritious meals a day in order to keep my sugar up. When my sugar is even slightly down, i feel really sick. And of course, if my sugar gets too low, I'll pass out. Which is crazy scary. So, I'm about to start researching on that topic..so hopefully I can start feeling better.
I'm about to get a gym membership at Anytime too, which i'm super excited about. There's one literally 2 minutes away from my house.

I'm kind of liking my classes this quarter.
Minus political science...this health care thing couldnt have come at a better time...my Poly Sci professor is having a haayyy dayyy talking about it all.
How lucky am I, to be in a class on politics, when politics is the hottest topic in America? oh boy.

On Louisiana weather, it snowed yesterday. It's 65 degrees today.
Ha. I love it.

A few things...

My newest love:

These are ERASERS!!! And the come apart!! We finally got them shipped to our store (note they're Japanese..I'm wondering if they had to ship them all the way from Japan..it took THAT long)
We're hoping they really catch on...I'm hoping so because I want to order tons of different kinds of them! There's more than just food!

My newest musical love:

seriously. I am in love with this.


My newest "wearable" love:

I have not yet had the opportunity to buy one, but I want one so bad! Next pay check, I AM heading to Salt and Pepper!

Family Ties.

I know a lot of people (i really think it has something to do with being Southern) that are really close to a lot of their family. And not like, immediate, mom, dad, siblings, family. Like..cousins, aunts, uncles, etc.
One of my best friends, Taylor, has a family like that. And they make me wish so much that I was that close with all of my family!
My life has always been a very immediate family oriented one, which i wouldnt have traded for the world, but as far as any other family goes, I was only "close" to my grandparents. I would only see my cousins, aunts, and uncles on holidays.
And I know my dad's side couldnt really be like that, because it's not very big, but my moms side is HUGE and I LOVE it, I just wish we were closer!
I think it would be fun.
The cousins (and one aunt) that I am actually close with are some of my best friends. Thinking about it...I guess it would be different if I wasnt one of the babies of my mom's side.
My mom is the youngest of 5...so when my cousins were all growing up together, they were locking me in closets and being me to me and such...
Joseph and Little Rodney locked me in a bedroom on Christmas Eve when I was about 4...
I think i'm still bitter about that one because I missed the beginning of the present opening!!!

But I digress. HA.

Oh hey! I passed all of my finals, AND all of my classes!! Woooppp!!!

Don't Wake Me, I Plan on Sleeping In.

Friday and today were finals for Winter Quarter.
Needless to say, I have gotten next to NO sleep in the past 4 or 5 days. And I REALLY pushed it to the limit last night, seeing how I had both Sociology, and Math finals today, both of which the grade I got on my final would determine whether I PASSED OR FAILED the class!
So, of course, I was stressing out MAJOR. Even after all the studying I had done, I still ended up staying up until 3 am studying my brains out, and even after I let myself go to bed, I just tossed and turned all night stressing.
SO - resulting in my feeling even worse when I woke up than I had felt before I went to sleep.
Like, a mac truck ran over me, but didnt let me die. SO miserable!
So after both my tests were done (which i actually found out I was prepared for!) I went to work, and really just felt like I was going to die (obvious exaggeration, but still!) and my boss was kind enough to let me go home and sleep!! (BIG thanks to Mrs. Leslie!!)

So, after a shower, comfy pj's, clean sheets, and a 3 hour nap, Ty brought me over some Chinese!
He treats me so great. Spoils me rotten is what he does, actually, haha.

Now I am sitting at my "night job" (i put that in quotes because its not very much work, i sleep at a mom from my church's house with her 2 daughters while she goes to work at night.) drinking a Route 44 Sonic Coke and watching My Life as Liz (which i am LOVING lately) ...the prom episode...which reminds me how even though i LOVED dressing up, I would NOT go back to high school for the WORLD! haha...

Nighty, nighty!
