The Wedding Post

I've been absent from the bloggy world for far too long!  

This past weekend I went home for Hannah's wedding!  Thursday morning I drove home with Kelly (my sister) - she was down here for Uplift.  It was funny on the way back we were driving down the interstate and there was a big pack of motorcycles in the lane in front of us.  All of a sudden they all switched lanes together, and they lifted their left arms (you know to signal a right blinker) and Gill and I laughed that it looked like they were all flipping us off in unison. I'm so glad to have her with her same sense of humor!  We had lunch with the bride when we got into town, then I went and got a pedicure with my fav nail guy... Lock!  I think his real name is Brian? He's hilar.  I got O.P.I.'s Elephantastic Pink on my toes... it's adorable, I need to add it to my collecsh.  After that I went to Hannah's apartment with my dear old friend Whitney K and we decorated for the Bach Party!  Whitney N. came over after she got off work, dropped off the penis cake, and we rushed to Shogun for the bachelorette din din.  It was super yummy!  Toward the end of the dinner they had Hannah stand on a chair while they played some bumpin' music and she was a tad bit mortified.  Then we headed back to her apt. for cake games and fun!  What happened will not be discussed in detail! ;)  

Friday at 11am we had a gorgeous and delish bridal luncheon thrown by Hannah's mom!  It was so wonderful.  Her mom also gave us these beautiful bracelets to wear in the wedding (pearls and pretty diamondy balls).  Hannah gave us giftcards to go shopping!  I can not think of a more perf gift.  I used mine to buy some eye cream and lip conditioner at MAC.  Friday night was the rehearsal dinner.  We went out to the chapel and ran through the ceremony, then headed to the country club for dinner and a slideshow.  The dinner was so yummy, and the dessert was some pretty fab cheesecake.  (If you couldn't tell, I lived this weekend like I didn't know the words "healthy" or diet").  The slideshow included pics of Hannah and Tyler when they were little, growing up (featuring some fugly photos of yours truly) and then them as a couple.

Saturday was wedding day!  We got up bright and early to leave the hotel by 7:15 and head to the chapel.  We took most of the pics before the wedding.  Lava Girl made an appearance!  Then it was finally time!  My favorite part of the wedding was when they opened the chapel doors for Hannah to walk in.  The sun was shining in behind her and one of my fav songs "So Are You To Me" was playing.  She looked like an angel... and this is where my inevitable tears came.  After the wedding came the reception, brunch and cake were served.  It was mother effin hot outside and I looked like a sweaty whore but Hannah remained looking gorg. and it was really a beautiful reception.  We decorated the getaway car with a cute sign and of course Dr. Pepper cans and they were off to enjoy their new life as a married couple!

WHEW.  That was a loonnnng recap!  Here are some pics.  I stole them from other people because I didn't pull my camera out once this weekend.

The pic above is right after I asked Hannah if she needed to fart.  Yeah, I misunderstood what she said - hilar.

The Power of ONE little HAIR

I've had some realizations over the past few days.  Let me just say I strongly believe I'm having a quarter-life crisis.  You may wonder... why, Jen?

Well kids, I found a grey hair on my head two nights ago.  It was just one tiny hair.  But it started a landslide.  I stood in front of the mirror for an unmentionable amount of time searching for more.  Wanna know something?  I found two more!  WHAT'S HAPPENING TO ME!?

Another realization: I can never own a little (as in low to the ground) car.  This week, I have the *ahem* privilege of trading cars with Katie because they needed my beloved Blue Betty SUV for the Florida trip I didn't get to go on.  Anyway!  I've realized that I can't stand getting in and out of a little car.  Add in the fact that I wear dresses every day and flash innocent bystanders anytime I enter or exit the car, and you have a recipe for some serious humiliation.

ANOTHER realization: My job is a little frustrating right now.  Today, I walked into the office I've been sharing with one of the girls for the past 13 days (I counted) and somebody took over my unofficial desk.  How am I supposed to check my blog reader and email important people (aka Whitney, Hannah and Adam) without a computer?!  Our office has a serious shortage of space so I'm going to be floating around a lot which is basically the most annoying thing, oh... ever!

"Is there any way I could call you 'Porkchop' and we could still get along?"

My boyfriend literally just said this to me out of nowhere.  My life with him is so random and hilarious.  He must've intrinsically known that I needed to laugh! :)

50th post!!!

My name is Jennie, and I'm a shopaholic.  Confession: I've been doing some online window shopping.  I follow a lot of different blogs and they've given me even more to look at, posting about fabulous items and even better websites to make my mouth water... here are some of my favorite finds that I've drooled over but have managed not to splurge on... yet!

All of these dresses are from lulus.com
Thanks to one of my fav new blogs Quite Contrary for introducing me to this awesome little online store!

do NOT spend money you don't have, Jen

Can't Hardly Wait

16 more days and I'm officially finished with school forever!!!  Unbelievable!  I have a few assignments and TWO papers to write... this seems like a lot for the next two weeks, but I don't care, because then I'll be free!  I've been spending a lot of unnecessary time dreaming about what I'll do when I don't have homework to finish.

1. Read, read, read!
2. Exercise + eat healthy = lose 50 lbs!
3. Re-dedicate myself to Weight Watchers.
4. Be (even more) organized!
5. Relax!

This little list may seem simple but it's the little things in life, right?

Adam x 2

Last night Adam and I went on a date.  We desperately needed to escape Searcy.  I had the brilliant idea to see who was going to be at the Loony Bin (comedy club in Little Rock).  Adam Hunter was performing, I heard about him on the radio.  He was actually on my favorite morning show Friday morning and made me laugh so hard I missed my exit.  So last night we had dinner at Hooters (I know, I know) and went to the comedy show.  Basically a perfect date.  This new Adam was funny.  It was a good night to get away and enjoy some good laughs together. 

Plus, he was pretty attractive and made me laugh.  2 points!

Why does the weekend go by sooo fast?  And the weeks so ridiculously slow?  

OH but the weekend isn't over yet!  Guess what tonight is?  

I just recently started watching this show once I got HBO at my new apartment.  I've been watching 1st season reruns and let me tell you I'm excited for the 2nd season premiere tonight!!!  It's like Twilight, but a little more adult.  Fantastic!

Thanks, Pepperidge Farm

I'm totally addicted to Goldfish.  Sometimes, nothing else sounds good to me. So I just eat goldfish for a meal.  They're so addicting and easy to eat.  The catch: Every time I eat them I get a tummy ache.  Somehow, my brain forgets about said tummy ache and in a week or so I'm back to my old ways of over-indulging on those yummy fish-shaped crackers.

All this to say... right now, I have a tummy ache.

Anyway, tomorrow is {hopefully} my last day of training at work.  I have to drive to the Batesville clinic (about a 50 minute drive) and we have a day full of training.  This should be much more interesting than what I've been doing, which is sitting and doing online training on the computer all day.  Maybe next week I'll get my own clients and get to do what I actually went to school for!

This week has gone by so slow, but tomorrow is Friday and it should be an interesting weekend full of mostly homework and a dash of fun!

Thanks Krystyn for all your hard work making this look SO cute!

Sorry I don't have time for a longer post... I'm exhausted, but maybe tomorrow!

F My Life

Have y'all seen the websites fmylife and texts from last night?  Texts from last night is hilarious, I can read it forever and laugh hysterically the whole time.  Adam makes fun of me for it, but it's pretty rich.  F My Life is decently funny, but not as good as the text one!

I'm basically posting this random crap because my life is ridic right now and I'm tired and stressed.  I promise I'll post more often when my classes are finished in 3 weeks!

I'll have a new (fantastic) blog design within the next couple of days!  I can't wait to reveal it!

Hope you all had a fabulous Monday!

Impulsive much?

So.  Yeah.  Today I started the Master Cleanse.

It lasted about... ohhh 6 hours.

Then I got a headache, dizzy, nauseous and just a little bit hungry.

So I got a taco.  One Taco.  At Taco Bell.  

What a waste!  I spent money (not a ton, but still) on lemons, water bottles, organic maple syrup, a juicer... ugh!  That is so me and so impulsive.  I couldn't follow through with it though.

I decided it's ridiculous to make yourself miserable like that.  Deep down the only real reason I was doing it was to lose a few pounds.  If I had a little bit more self control and just ate better and exercised I could do that in a much more healthy way.  Monday, I'm going back to Weight Watchers, because it worked and I wasn't starving myself.  Makes sense right?

Other things I did today:
- learned to tie a tie (I felt so accomplished!)
- had a massive headache and watched two movies to try to relax
- ate at Mi Ranch!  I split something with Adam as an effort in portion control
- went with Adam to buy fancy clothes for his new job

I'm so glad my friends Hannah and Whitney now have blogs!

{not so} Wonderland

I feel like the little guy on Alice in Wonderland who runs around singing that song: "I'm late, I'm late.. for a very important date."  

And I've felt like that for the past two days.  I can't seem to get caught up with all I need to do.  Life will be {so} much easier when these classes are over at the end of the month.  Right now I can't blog about my first day of work because I have an essay to write that was due at 11:59 last night.

Hot Diggity Dog

I'll post later this evening about my first day of work.  I just wanted to jot down my predictions for The Bachelorette.  This season with Jill has been weird for me.  She makes some picks that totally blow my mind.  I'm normally pretty good at reading who will make it to the end, but her taste in men so far has thrown me for a loop.  Taking into consideration the way she seems to be picking and what I think is going to happen with some of the more popular guys ... here is my prediction for the top 4:

Robby:  I think Robby is a slow starter but will last until the final 4.

Kiptyn:  I picked Kiptyn when I went online and looked at the pictures before the show even started.

Jake:  Jake is super corny, but I think he's genuine and I think Jill likes him.

Ed: I just have a hunch about this guy, he seems nice and I don't think they've shown him much at all (for a reason).  I think he'll make it pretty far.  (ps - doesn't he kinda look like Denny from Grey's?)

My prediction is either Ed or Kiptyn will be the final winner.  My thoughts on Wes?  He's the one who is there for ulterior motives.  Juan?  He's fake as can be and possibly is the one who has a girlfriend.  Dave? Serious temper problems!  She seems to be keeping a lot of guys who have a bad temper.  

We'll see what happens tonight!  I hope Ed gets a one on one!

Pictures from here.
