balboa I

my family has been vacationing on balboa island forever!  seriously.  it's a huge tradition for my family.

since the ocean was cold for the first few days, my family spent those days laying out by the pool.  we kept busy though, mostly with chicken fights.  but it was still fun.

lady gaga has talent

yes, she may dress like a freak, and sometimes dance like one, but when you listen to these songs, you have to admit, there is talent behind the madness.

lady gaga, i am a fan.

the little black dress award

i just made up an award, because i can.  it's called "the little black dress award".

let me explain.  this award goes out to blogger who i find timeless, seasonless, classic.  she is someone who is always a good friend, is alway fun to be with, and can always be counted on.  she is an amazing person who is an asset to any girl's closet.

this award goes out to my lovely friend, sera! i've only known this girl for a few months, but i can tell we were buds in another life.

congrats sarah, you are a little black dress.

a little mid-week, almost done with school pick-me-up

so, i just got sick- a super nasty cold complete with runny nose, congestion headaches and problems breathing.  joy.  on top of that i have to move out this week, take my VERY big final that will determine my physical science grade.  in a nutshell, it is a stressful time.

here are some images that i found that work great as a pick-me-up.

. list things which you love about yourself
. post a picture
. tag your peeps

i like my pinkies (is that weird. i just do.)  i like my eyes (color, shape, everything.)  i like the fact that i find almost everything funny.
