It's ok, we're with the band!

Hey y'all the weekend is winding down, and Monday is just around the corner but I thought I would take a few minutes to pop in, say hello, and announce a giveaway for my fabulous readers, YOU! 
This past week was good, my friend Kyndall and I went to a concert on Wednesday for this great group Carter's Chord, if you don't know them check them out, they are really awesome! 

They are just as good live as they are on your radio, which is rare! We had a great time, there wasn't a great turnout; the band is fairly new, and it was a Wednesday night so after the concert Kyn and I got the meet the girls and get autographs, they were super nice! Afterwards we went to another club, lets just say about 5 too many vodka and redbulls and you hate yourself on Thursday morning! 

Seriously, the unedited version of this pic is ridiculous! This was 2am (ish) Thursday morning! Hot.Ass.Mess!
Nate and I had a relaxing weekend, didn't really do anything super exciting, last night he went fishing with the guys so Hannah (Hey Hannah, I know you're reading this ;)...Hahah)..., Darrah, and I went shopping, then home for craft night. On my 30 before 30 list I said I want to start painting, not pieces of art, just cutesy stuff, and by no means am I great at it but I am definitely going to keep working on it!
I made this for Hannah, It turned out really cute! I was stressin', I don't do well under pressure! Haha
Go Hogs! I got this idea from Pinterest, I love the way it turned out.

And last, but not least...I promised when I reached 50 followers I would host a little giveaway, and now that I'm nearing 60 I guess I better follow through! I was doing some shopping Friday and the beauty supply had OPI's new fall collection. I picked up a couple colors, then noticed they had a mini collection with 4 gorgeous snagged one for one lucky reader! I was also in Sephora and they had these adorable makeup bags, so I picked up some for Christmas for the same lucky reader! So here's the'll get this...

Who knows, there may even be some surprises packed in that cute little bag ;)'s the scoop on how to enter...I was going to do this trivia style...but I think I'm going to stick with an easier entry method...I'm not the best at keeping up with Twitter, so all you have to do is follow my blog! Optional: Mention this giveaway in a blog post and get 5 additional entries! So comment below to enter, 1 comment to let me know you're a follower, and another if you mention it in a blog post! I'll close the giveaway on Wednesday evening (6 pm central time) and announce the winner on Thursday!
You guys are the best, I never imagined that blogging would be so important to me! I have "met" some really amazing girls and I look forward to continuing this journey, and documenting all the important parts of my life to share with you all!

I hope y'all had a great weekend! I'll talk to y'all soon!

I'm usually a Carrie...

Hey y'all, I hope you had a great weekend! Monday is in full force, and I am completely over this day! I had a pretty relaxing weekend; Friday night I spent some time with girlfriends, we went to dinner, then went home to watch Something Borrowed. Saturday Nate and I had a Sushi/Hibachi date, then watched a movie at home, then yesterday after church I just relaxed the whole day, caught on on DVR, and did a little online shopping. I love those days when I get to put on sweat pants, and not have to take them off until the next morning!!
 While I was catching up on my TV watching yesterday I watched an episode of Sex and the City, probably more popularly known as the one where Carrie got arrested for smokin' a dubie (sp?)! In this episode Charlotte had gotten engaged the night before, and the girls were out at a bar and bumped into another group of girls celebrating a Bachelorette party. Charlotte had finally met the love of her life, but since this would be her second wedding, she didn't feel like she could celebrate in a big way. It's rare that I connect to Charlotte on SATC, but this topic is one that I can definitely relate to! Granted, I'm not engaged; I know Nate and I will one day be married, and it kinda bums me out that I won't be able to celebrate in a normal way. I feel like the girl in Big Daddy, when Adam Sandler walks in the surprise party for his friend, and she tells him "We wasted the good surprise on you" feel like I "wasted my good wedding" the first time around. Don't get me wrong, in no way am I insinuating that I want to register, and have bridal showers, that's not it. Believe me, after the near 500 Thank You notes from the first time, if I didn't have to write another Thank You note for the rest of my life, it would be fine! But I want a wedding, and I want bridesmaids, and to wear a dress and feel beautiful. I want to share the day with our family and friends, and not feel like I have to have a small  ceremony with family only, if even having one at all. Nate and I have discussed options for when we do decide to get married, but we differ on what it should be like...I love the idea of getting married on the balcony of his parents lake house, and inviting family, and close friends...which would be somewhere around 50+ people, and he would rather just invite our parents. I know when it comes down to it, either way he would do what I wanted to do...but I don't know what to do...Again...obviously I have plenty of time to worry myself with this, as if I don't have a millions other things going on right now. But after seeing that on SATC, and feeling the same exact way Charlotte did, I just needed to vent a little! So, if you were in my boat, what would you do? Charlotte ended up having a wedding, and everything that could go wrong, did. Carrie joked with her saying "the worse the wedding, the better the marriage..."....I just want happily ever after with my love...even if that means we get have to get married in the hallway of a courthouse...

 I hope you all have a great Monday, thanks for hearing me out on this! I can't wait to hear your opinions!
