The 7 Things I Hate About You

I did this a while ago on facebook and thought I would bring it over here to share and update it.

1. My husband and family are the most important people to me ever (aside from a few friends). I have the best parents ever. You may think yours are good, but you may need to think again.

2. I call my husband Boo Boo Boppers. Now everyone calls him Boo Boo. Those that knew us 7 years ago until now know that we have matured so much. We rarely fight.....Our biggest fights are when we go out and he wants to go home and go to bed and I want to stay out. He is an old man in a 27 (almost 28) yr old body.

3. My sister and I used to never get along until college. I call her Gay One. I have called her this since I can remember. She is even listed in my phone under that name. However, she is completely straight and will be getting married in November.

4. I read this email story about this serial killer who used to lure women out of their homes with the sound of a crying baby. I completely believe that someone is doing the same to me except it is with a cat. At night (only at night) when I am outside on the back deck/porch thing, I hear a cat cry. Sometimes the cat even comes up and tries to rub up on me and I run inside. I absolutely love cats, but I have a thing against serial killers. By the way, I really do believe this is happening at my house. UPDATE: It's the neighbors cat and his name is Gordo. Gordo is like my new BFF now.

5. I am adopted and want to meet my birth mother. I think she has tried to find me a few times, but I am hard to catch.

6. I am absolutely terrified of having a baby. Every once in a while I get on a baby kick, but it soon disappears as I am sooooooo scared to be pregnant and to actually give birth. I will definitely need to be drugged up on something hardcore when this day arrives. Currently, I am on a hard core baby kick, but so excited for pregnant friends!

7. Back to being adopted, my adoption story is a complete miracle and if you have never heard it then you are missing out.

8. I hate the UGA bulldogs. Like I really cannot stand them, but I love Mark Richt. I think that's how you spell his name........

9. I never went to public school until college.

10. I used to competitive dive for a while when I was younger. I was pretty good too. I won the gold at the Georgia Games (which I think is a mini Olympic thing in A town). I probably should have stayed with it, but I didn't.

11. I love to read. Like I really really really love to read. I love books by Janet Evanovich. But I am currently reading Tori Spelling's book and so far, I love it. And I am angry that Katherine Heigl has been cast as Stephanie Plum. Boo.

12. I am a completed infatuation with sharks. Shark Week may be the best week of my life. One of my favorite gifts was a shark bottle opener and Shark Week DVDs (thanks Sean)! SHARK WEEK IS NEXT WEEK!!!! "Dolphins are just gay sharks." ~ Glee

13. My hair has not been 100% natural since 6th grade.

14. I really want to go to church more, but I hate church hopping. Please just bring North Point to Abilene and I will be happy. We have been to like 4 different churches or something and there are SOOOO many here to choose from.

15. I really hate how people will attack and criticize the President regardless of who it is. I did not vote for Obama and don't agree with a lot of his ideas, but since he is the President of the USA I will support that.

16. I hate beer and will always hate beer.

17. My two little babies are Miss Friski and Fendi Foo. I do not need a child because I am afraid that my cats will try to kill my baby because they are so spoiled for attention.

18. When I was about 5 I feel out of a tree and had a concussion. Does that explain something???

19. My SAT score went up about 200 pts from the first time I took it. Yay!

20.My high maintenance and spoiled b*tchiness have decreased a little bit since I have become a Bentley, but they are never gone! :)

21. I really really really really want to get my boobs done. But not until after we finish having kids.

22. OMG how could I forget? I am in love with Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears. I have no idea what I am going to do with myself when she stops making music or when she disappears from the paparazzi.

23. I will pose about 90% of the time with a kissy face. I enjoy my kissy face and I think it's pretty good. If you give me your camera, you will have a kissy face picture on it by the time you get it back.

24. I live in Abilene, TX. It is like a polar opposite of Atlanta and I don't hate it like people told me I would. I do hate when they call it "A town." HELLO?!?!

25. I really enjoyed planning my wedding and it was the best day of my life. As much as it stressed me out, it was completely worth it.

Josie's On A Vacation Far Away.

Because we have many friends who are getting married in the next year, we are saving our vacation time to attend their weddings, hang out with our families and see other friends in Georgia. My sister's wedding is in November - dress is ordered, plane tickets are not. The prices have not dropped in 3 months. UGH. Shannon, my sorority little sis's wedding is in December - dress was just picked out, not ordered, and no plane tickets have been ordered. My old roomie Melissa (Franny) is getting married in May. Since her wedding will be in Indy, I really want to attend so I can meet Peyton Manning. I might wear my jersey to her wedding. :)

With that being said, the only vacation (and I use that term VERY loosely) was a month ago to meet my parents in San Antonio. We drove down there Thursday night and met them at the Westin hotel - loved the hotel. It was very nice and on the Riverwalk, but not in the middle of the restaurant/bar scene. On Saturday we took them to the Alamo, picked up a few gifts and a had lunch on the Riverwalk. Mom and I continued to go shopping, but didn't find much.

That night we ate at the most amazing restaurant - caprese salad, a crazy cream cheese jalapeƱo bread dip, crab cakes, wine, asparagus, and the fabulous strawberry dessert I had was amazing. Justin and I went out for a tad bit that night, but I think we were both in a food coma. If you are in SA and have a special occasion, pricey, amazing meal, then you must dine at Bohanan's.

The next day we decided to go see a 3-D movie about the underwater African world - this amazing movie was about the travels of sardines. So weird. So misleading. And so not worth the giant drink that I dumped all over myself before it even started.

Saturday we ate on the Riverwalk followed by some madness at Tabu with my husband. He was hazed and introduced into the Riverwalk Pirates - quite an honor for those who know what it means. On Sunday we dropped the best parents in the world off at the airport and headed back to Abilene.

I am excited for the next few weeks/months. We have a lot of big decisions ahead, exciting announcements to make and interested things planned (did I mention my old grumpy husband is turning 28)?!? Danny Devito, I love your work!

Where's All My Soul Sisters?

Lady Marmalade (#13 in 2001). Oh how I loved that song. The only thing missing was Britney.

First, I absolutely love the app with the Top 100 Songs by Bing. It was FREE (It still says it's free for a limited time - whatever that means). Regardless, I heart it. You choose a year and it will randomly play the songs from that year. So many memories from high school, college, etc. It's great.

Secondly, Barnes & Noble is having a huge summer sale. Tons of books are on sale (paperback, hardback, eBooks, etc.) If you purchase over $25 you receive free shipping. There is so much to chose from. Even the hardback books are significantly reduced. My husband decided to spend money on fireworks so I spent money on books. I'm such a nerd.

Lastly, Cow Appreciation Day is on July 9th at Chick Fil A. So, if you feel like dressing up like a cow you will receive a free combo meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner - your choice). I also believe you can partially dress in cow attire and you will still receive a free entree at the discretion of the manager. Moo.
