take me down to the little white church

What a beautiful wedding! We had *so* much fun. Can't wait for the next one.



10 biggest turn-offs for women...

According to The Campus Socialite, these are the 10 biggest turn-offs for women. I'd have to say, *in general* I agree and I know that my future husband will be a great mix of... uh.. not?.. these things? Yes.  

  1. Guys who are too serious  
  2. Guys who are too into themselves  
  3. Cheapness 
  4. Insecurity  
  5. Bad Grammar/Spelling  
  6. Back Hair  
  7. Clingy Guys  
  8. Bad Breath  
  9. Cigarette Smoking  
  10. Bad Kissers
I would say, based on the above list, my BIGGEST is #5, bad grammar. I'm no grammer queen BUT let's figure out you're/your, there/their/they're... And also cheapness. If I am on a date with you I don't want to would rather not hear about how paying $4 for a cup of coffee is ridiculous.

just another day in the dating world... =)




I'll pray for you.

I pray your brakes go out runnin’ down a hill

I pray a flowerpot falls from a window sill and knocks you in the head like I’d like to

I pray your birthday comes and nobody calls

I pray you’re flyin’ high when your engine stalls

I pray all your dreams never come true

Just know wherever you are, near or far, in your house or in your car
I pray for you

disclaimer: this happens to be a catchy tune that I like to sing out loud. I don't really pray for these things to happen to *you*; rather, I hope you find guidance in your life and maybe [just maybe] you feel a teeny bit sad. & maybe I'd like to shake you a little bit and ask "what the heck is going on inside of you?!?!"

The sun will come out... tomorrow....

Look out your window, my sunshine's all around. All you have to do is just surrender.
Open up your eyes, don't you know you're just wasting time?
If that's the way you want it, well there you go.

I guess I'll just never understand, how if you want something, you *won't* go after it. I've always been the kind of girl to fight for something I want, whether it was an extra hour out when I was living at home as a teenager or more work to do at work. I'm always the kind of person to try hard for things I want and for the people I love. I guess I can understand that there are people who may like someone and think they're "wonderful & beautiful" but think that pursuing them any more than they are will just be come "too intense" or will "limit them from other people". With all that said, I know what who I am talking about, I hope that he finds happiness in his life, and I hope that one day he is able to open up to others about his feelings. I hope that he can be honest with himself and others. I hope that he doesn't have regrets for not going after what he wanted. Or maybe, he didn't want it at all and was too afraid of hurting me to say it? Well.. actions do speak louder than words. Always.

beautiful mess.

You've got the best of both worlds

You're the kind of girl who can take down a man
And lift him back up again

You are strong but you're needy,

Humble but you're greedy

And based on your body language,

And shoddy cursive I've been reading

Your style is quite selective,

though your mind is rather reckless

Well I guess it just suggests
that this is just what happiness is

Hey, what a beautiful mess this is

It's like picking up trash in dresses

Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you write

Kind of turn themselves into knives

And don't mind my nerve you could call it fiction

But I like being submerged in your contradictions dear

'Cause here we are, here we are

Although you were biased I love your advice

Your comebacks they're quick

And probably have to do with your insecurities

There's no shame in being crazy
Depending on how you take these
Words I'm paraphrasing this relationship we're staging

And what a beautiful mess, yes it is
It's like picking up trash in dresses

Well it kind of hurts when the kind of words you say

Kind of turn themselves into blades

And the kind and courteous is a life I've heard

But it's nice to say that we played in the dirt

Cause here, here we are, Here we are

What a beautiful mess, this is
It's like taking a guess when the only answer is "Yes"

Through, timeless words and priceless pictures We'll fly like birds not of this earth

And tides they turn and hearts disfigure

But that's no concern when we're wounded together

And we, tore our dresses and stained our shirts

But it's nice today.
Oh the wait was so worth it.


Blessed are the peacemakers

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.

Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.

Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called sons of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 5:3-10


I wish you would

Vote for KOB to go to NYC.

Send KOB to NYC!

KOB (pronounced cobe) is a friend of mine and is a really great and talented guy. I had the pleasure of meeting and his "crew" - Ashley, Lauren and Verse Uno - a couple weekend ago in Mankato. He was doing a show that Ella and I attended because our other friend was in it, too. Anyways, it'd be really great to see him go, he's so sweet and deserving. His new mixtape is awesome, my favorite songs have to be David Letterman, Ego remix and Life & Times.

Check out his video, CLICK 10 stars and let's see him to go NYC.


I wanna rock right now
I wanna
I wanna rock right now
