Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! Have fun and don't eat too much candy!

Friday, October 30, 2009


I would love to have a cupcake like this. I really want to make one... I think it would be so much fun. I want a giant cupcake for my birthday this year (hint hint). haha, just kidding. Seriously though doesn't this look like fun to make and eat?? And you can share it with a bunch of people.

My computer is being really weird so it might be a while before I can get a decent post up for you all. I hope you have a fun and safe Halloween weekend.

One of the Best Feelings

Today I opened my dresser drawer and saw a pair of pants that are one size smaller than I wear now. Oh but they are so cute and I remember buying them on sale. Now I am stuck in a dilemma, Do I try the pants on, hoping and praying they fit or just let them sit there and remember what size I used to be? Today I was brave. I pulled them out of the drawer and slowly slipped one leg in. Hesitant I slip the other one in. That prayer must of work because I don't struggle as much to pull them up. After fastening the buttons it is time for that moment of truth, can I still breathe?
The answer:


I was so super excited with this answer. Especially since it wasn't a pair that is kind of too small where I can still somehow manage to squeeze myself in. One whole size smaller. It was the highlight of my day. *happy dance*

I hope you had a fabulous Wednesday and that you find something that makes you do a happy dance.

National Novel Writing Month

I have never heard of this before it's called National Novel Writing Month. Everyone who signs up for it tries to write a 175 page (50,000 words) novel from November 1st until November 30th. I think it's a fabulous idea and if I didn't have so much school work I would definitely participate. Have you participated before? Or are you going to this year? I would love to know. I am not sure what I would even write about.

It's raining here. It's been raining all day. It's the perfect day to crawl up in bed with chocolate chip cookies and read a great book. I need some books to read, any suggestions?

I hope you are having a fabulous Tuesday.

I could really go for a Cook-Out Milkshake

I could really go for a Cook-Out Oreo milkshake right about now. It's just been one of those days. I'm having a hard time picking a topic to focus do you over come "writers block" so to speak?

I am a crazy dreamer. I seem to have the craziest most outrageous dreams ever. Maybe I'll start a series and share them with you.

I am trying to get ahead start on my homework since I have so many books to read for my World Lit. class along with everything else. Hopefully I can stay ahead or I could just procrastinate by reading all of your fabulous blogs.

I hope you have had a wonderful weekend.

More Mountain Photos

I was uploading some pictures from my camera and I found these:

(click photo to enlarge)

Can you find the moon in the above pictures?

I am so lucky to live where I do and see these beautiful sights almost everyday.

P.S. I'm trying to work out something special for you all so keep reading.

Classy or Trashy?

I would love to have a pair of these to wear with that little black dress.

But boyfriend thinks they are trashy. I think they would be cute as long as my whole outfit isn't cheetah print. What's your opinion?

I love this song as well as Sister Hazel. I especially love the line, "No you don't care that I'm weird and that's amazing." This line describes Tim and I exactly. We are always telling each other how weird we think the other one is and then always end with "but that's why I love you."

What song do you feel describes part of you?

Follow Your Dreams

They picked my picture for icanread. Yay! This helps me mark one more thing off my list. And I've been reading the first Harry Potter book for my World Literature Class (which is probably one of the best classes ever) so that gets me started on another list item. I am excited because of all my school work I haven't really been able to take part in recreational reading. Hopefully I can pick up again soon. My first class is cancelled so I get to sleep in tomorrow. *happy dance*

Hope you have had a wonderful Tuesday.

Snow in October??

I am back in Boone. There was some snow on the steps to my apartment. And this is view of one of the ski slopes I can see from my window. I am not quite ready for winter. I love fall to much.
This picture below was taken last fall during our first snow of the school year.

I hope you have had a wonderful Sunday.

You Won't Believe It

I narrowed down my purse collection to ten purses. Which is still quite a few but I have always been obsessed with purses and shoes...mainly because they always fit. I only carry three maybe four regularly but there are those for special occasions and ones I just can't part with. I was amazed I was able to narrow it down. I am heading back to Boone tomorrow, hoping there isn't any snow (I love the snow, but I'm not ready for it yet).

I hope you have been having a wonderful weekend.

Doesn't this look like FUN?

I was spending a lot of time on the internet the other day and discovered that there is a place not far from the great state of NC where you can get in a big ball and roll around. I have seen this on commercials before but thought it was only for cool people who live in the television (joke). Seriously I thought only people could do it on TV. Now I've learned there is a place in the Great Smoky Mountains where average people like me can go do this. It is called Zorb and known as globe riding. Go to the website and check it out. I can not wait to take advantage of what I can imagine only as a wonderful opportunity. Has anyone done this? If so, what was your experience like?

Thanks to You

I know I haven't shared much about myself so I am going to share some now. I started this blog in the spring mainly as an outlet for everything I was going through. It was the end of my sophomore year of college and I had been dealing with a lot. I was going through drama with some friends (that started in the fall of freshman year) and I was really crushed. I never realized you could become so hurt from a friend but I guess that's part of life. All of this drama drained me emotionally. In December I went to the doctor and discovered there was a small benign tumor in my brain (one year check up this December). I know it's nothing major compared to what other people go through but at that time it completely pushed me over the edge. And I felt as though I didn't have a good friend to confide in or I felt I was burdening them with my issues (two of the worst feelings ever). Luckily I had my wonderful family and fabulous boyfriend to help me through it. But I was so angry, so upset that I would write awful hateful things here on this blog. Then I had a change of heart. After looking at lovely blogs written by wonderful people I decided that all this negativity, worrying, and drama was wasting so much of my energy. Energy that could be better spend on other things, like school, my family, time with Tim, and time with real friends. It was really hard for me (still is some days) but I'm trying. I would like to say thanks to all of you because reading your fabulous blogs has helped me.

On another note, I am going home tomorrow for fall break. Right now I'm watching Monty Python and the Holy Grail and I'm not sure I understand it. I love the panda picture, it makes me smile every time. I'll try to have a happier post tomorrow or Friday.

So Adorable.

New Layout

So as you can you tell I've changed my layout some. I am having a hard time deciding whether or not I like it. Let me know what you think.

Anyways, Fall Break starts tomorrow evening and I definitely need a break. Hopefully I can find a good book to read during my break. I'm not sure what else to write at this moment, I hope you all are having a good week so far.

Book Number Twelve

I finally finished Little Earthquakes by Jennifer Weiner. I thought I was never going to finish because school kept getting in the way. I absolutely loved this book. It was an amazing story about relationships, not just "love" ones, but relationships between friends, in-laws, parents, children, and husbands. I loved getting to know all of the characters and their story. By the end of the book I felt as though they were my friends. The wonderful self-discovery journey that each character took was so intriguing. Once I picked the book up this week I had a hard time putting it back down. I highly reccomend this book. Especially if you are a fan of Jennifer Weiner.

Twelve books down, only Forty-three left. And I marked one more thing off of my 101 list!

Any reccomendations for my next book??

Living in the Moment

Today I watched Oprah. I don't normally watch Oprah but through the blogosphere I had heard that Stephanie from NieNie Dialouges was going to be on. I had come across her blog several times but never really sat down and read through it. I heard her story today while watching Oprah and was completely amazed by her. I was on the verge of tears. Her story is so wonderful, you should check out her blog and read her story. You should also watch her from todays episode of Oprah. She inspires me to enjoy the little things in my life, the small things I normally take for granted.She is so strong and the love from her husband and family is just amazing. By watching they way they interacted you could tell it was unconditional love, which is so rare. Please go read her story.

{image: we heart it}

P.S. I just adore this picture. It doesn't have much to do with the post but I think it's cute.

A little bit about me

Hi. I am Sarah. I wish I was musically talented. I am not a huge fan of odd numbers. I can't sleep if my closet doors are open. I've recently become obsessed with zebra print. I like to wear ballet flats. My favorite color is pink. One look in my room would tell you that. I am the second of four children. Cinderella is my favorite Disney princess. I like to be silly. I hate when my toenails aren't painted. And I'm very weird.

Tell me something about yourself.
