when all else fails, make a list

It has been too long, my friends. I've been wanting to blog this past week, but honestly wasn't feeling all too inspired. Truth be told, I still have nothing brilliant to say. So when all else fails, what do I do? Compile a list. So here's a list of the random things I'm loving at the moment.

1. The A-Team. Have any of you seen this yet? One word: HILARIOUS. So far I would say it's the most entertaining movie of the year. The entire cast was brilliant, including Bradley Cooper, who I usually dislike. Yes I know, I'm odd. & I absolutely love Aslan Liam Neeson.

2. Double rings. What are your thoughts on these? & My new bracelet from Buckle.

3. Chad Dylan Cooper. For those who don't know, he's the character played by Sterling Knight {actor in 17 Again & recently featured in Nylon magazine's Young Hollywood Issue as one of the "55 faces of the future"} in the Disney Channel show Sonny With A Chance. I have no idea why I decided to start watching this show last week, but these past two episodes have me hooked. Both- Falling For The Falls pt. 1 & 2- had me laughing out loud. If you ever have an hour to kill, I recommend watching these two episodes. I'm sure they can be found on Youtube.

Summer Nights
4. Sitting outside in the evening while listening to whatever suits my fancy, the fresh summer air all around me. It's incredibly relaxing.

5. My newish pair of black vans. Last August I promised I'd never purchase a pair because everyone seemed to own them. Well I cracked, so sue me.

6. Thomas Kinkade night lights. They are magical little things, despite never really using them.

7. Silly, random compliments from strangers. "Your hair is so curly and has so much volume. It's great!" Um, thank you. & Note to self: Compliment strangers more often.

8. Receiving an anonymous check in the mail for $500! Guess who is for sure going to Chile on a mission trip in July? This girl!

What are you currently loving, readers?


  1. My boyfriend is trying to convince me to go see the A-Team with him, I might just let him after reading this... Oh my, I love Liam Neeson too. I find him so sexy (Bradley Cooper is a bit hot, too)!

    At the moment I am loving hazelnut lattes, fresh flowers, the fact that i can sleep in tomorrow and cute fridge magnets - i just got a fridge :)


  2. YAY! oh my gooodness, god is so good. i'm so happy your trip to chile is a for sure thing! yesss.

    i can't wait to see the a-team... so excited. i ADORE liam neeson, he is an incredible individual... and i love b.cooper, too. ;) i'm kind of bummed jessica biel is in it, i'm not a fan of her at all.

    i LOVE double rings! the one on the right is fabulous. where did you get it?

  3. yes, the a-team was soooo good. didn't expect it to be that good when i saw the trailer. but i was impressed!

    and yes, double rings are awesome!!

  4. I got my double ring at Forever 21. They have a lot of cute ones. =]

  5. it's always great to hear from you :) Thank you for the comment and about your question...well, i'm loving the idea of finishing my work and have a good evaluation :D it's the only thing permanently on my mind ^^
    and my boyfriend of course :) ***

  6. Love the double rings, although I myself am too afraid to get stuck in them. Even saw a gorgeous triple one a while back.

    Those shoes are awesome, the vans hype here has worn of so maybe I'll give them a go to some day.

    That check news is great! I hope you'll have an amazing time in Chile.

    Blogging during the summer is so much harder. Even though I feel inspired when the weather's good I don't want to spend all my time inside behind the computer and when it comes to topics I do seem to have a harder time too.

    Maybe we just need to adjust.

    Have a great day!

  7. I love love love that adorable ring!!! I haven't seen the a-team yet, either! xoxo


  8. I love that you had so much fun at A Team! I've been wanting to see it, there are so many fun movies out right now and too much is going on for me to go!

    I think I need a matinée :)

  9. I keep on hearing that the A Team is a good movie but I still haven't gotten around to seeing it, maybe I should :)

    Double rings are awesome...


  10. compliments from strangers are always the best :)

    haha and i love sonny with a chance! it's my guilty pleasure.

  11. New to your blog but I just have to say I'm lovin' the little crown ring! Double ring? Well, I have stubby fingers so I couldn't pull it off if I tried!


  12. A-Team, everyone seam to know and I am blond and dont even know what it is about other that its orginaly some old tv-show or something :)

    YAY @ Chad, he is such an ass you just gotta love him (why do I know this, I am too old to watch Dinesy shows :s)

    Also cool shoes, nice ring - love the crown thingy the most tho :)

    Yay for money :p

    oh, and love your layout design :D

  13. A random cheque worth $500. It's good to be you :)

    Love those rings. Especially that crown ring.

    I love sitting outside but it's been so humid lately i haven't bothered.

  14. I've never tried double rings before. Is it awkward on your hand when you try to move your fingers? The bracelet is great though and I love that crown ring. :D

    I watch Sonny With a Chance sometimes too. I have to say it's really about time that those two got together. It was really hilarious.

    A $500 check? That is amazing!I wish that would happen to me.

  15. I love the double ring look, too :D Yours is so gorgeous!

    I've never watched Sunny With a Chance, but it's hard to deny that Sterling Knight isn't exactly hard on the eyes ;) And is name sounds so... actor-ly, haha!

    I've been admiring Vans like that, too. I quite like your new pair. And holy cow, that nightlight is lovely. I'd buy that for my kid!

    An anonymous $500 check?! That's basically amazing. And using it to go on a mission trip to Chile and even amazing-er! I'm sure that will be an experience of a lifetime.

  16. To clarify on the check: I sent out support letters to a lot of people. So one of them- I don't know who- sent me the anonymous check. I don't just get random checks in my mail every day. Hehe. Just to clear that up.

    CupCake- You can never be too old to watch the Disney Channel. At least that's my excuse for still watching it.

    Valerie- Surprisingly, the double ring isn't awkward. Although I thought it would be.

  17. I grew up watching the A-Team, so I'm definitely looking forward to watching this one.


  18. Surprise $500? YES PLEASE.

    And I, too, love "Sonny With a Chance." The concepts of shows within shows was totally lost on me when I was a kid, so sometimes I wonder if kids GET "Sonny" & "Hannah Montana," etd. Or maybe they're just all a lot smarter than I was.

  19. Are the vans comfortable? I always wear chucks, even though everyone has a pair of them as well!

  20. Lindsey- the vans are very comfortable. More so, I think, than my Converse.
