Why is it that Mondays are so poopy?? I don't like them one bit. So when I got the "Orange Leaf for dinner??" text from Miranda around 5 today, that sounded like a great plan to me! It is kind of becoming a Monday tradition. Hey whatever it takes to get through this not-so-lovely day of the week, right? I also got a super cute lil present from Miranda. I loooooove palm trees. So much so that I have one with me permanently ;) It looks just like this one...haha. How cute is this??
I have a small obsession lately with pink. I am dying to paint a room pink, or get pink bedding. Random, I know. I have always been such a neutral colors kinda gal. Chocolate brown is taking over my house. But I am single and live by myself and it may be the last chance I have to have a pink room. Plus I think it is such a warm, cozy color. A soft pink, not hot pink or anything. What do ya'll think?
Maybe a pink kitchen??
But the bedrooms are so pretty....
Or just pink bedding??
I'm sure this scares Miranda, since I live in her townhouse. I would clear it through my landlord before I did anything crazy, of course ;)
I went home this past weekend for some quality time with the parentals. You all need to know my mother, if you don't already. She is a funny one. Probably one of the smartest people I know. She has like 100 different degrees, fo rizza (that means 'for real'). Buuuuuut.....she can be a little bit flighty at times. But I honestly think the world is such a sweeter, more fun place through her eyes. For instance, she has facebook and loves it. She's addicted. But, she doesn't really get how it works. She thinks that when people update their status they are sending her a direct message. This is cause for lots of excitement when "friends" like John Calipari, head coach of the UK basketball team, makes a status update. Twice this weekend I heard about how "Coach Cal just sent me a message that says....". God love it.
Speaking of Coach Cal....
UK is going to the Final Four!!
We play UConn on Saturday and if we win that game we will play the winner of VCU/Butler on Monday for the National Championship! I'm so excited and proud to be a Wildcat and UK alum!
This was Coach Cal right before he grabbed Liggins and gave him a huge kiss on the cheek, haha.
And we Kentucky folk are not the only people that know our team is badass. Jay Z happens to be pretty fond of them too. Here he his kickin it in the locker room with the guys after the big win.
And of course we know how to welcome our team back. This is the madness that was the Bluegrass Airport when the team landed back in Lex. This is so awesome. I love that all the guys on the team are just as excited and taking just as many pictures of all the fans. Welcome Back CATS! (The only way I could get the actual news footage was with a link, its not on YouTube yet. The only videos on YouTube were from people's phones and kinda crazy. This is much better.)
On another note....Can we talk about this show "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" for just a second....Oh. Ma. Word. First of all...Are they for serious?? This is not how teenagers talk. IS IT? It has been a hot minute since I was a teen, so maybe I just don't know, but either way, this show is RE-DIC-U-LOUS. Annnnnd I can't stop watching it. What is wrong with me??
