Obsession Confession

12:00 AM

Ok, I don't know if I would classify this as an obsession but....

I LOVE potatoes.

Heart potato

Ok, love is a strong word but I REALLY like them.

Maybe it's because I'm Irish
(by blood, i have NO Irish accents whatsoever..lol).

Yes, I'm stereotyping my Irish heritage. But why else would I LOVE potatos.

  • Its the ONLY thing I can eat in the mornings without getting sick.
  • French Fries are my comfort food.
  • I make a MEAN tator tot casserole.
  • Also I make some pretty tasty potato cakes.
  • And potato's (or some form of them) are my favorite snacks!


So, what is ONE food that you love???


Hope you enjoyed my random post about potatos. I just felt inspired to write one today :) With school finishing up here for myself I'll be able to post more often! So be sure to keep checkin back in to my random and sometimes interesting post...
and no they will not always be about food...


Weekend Photos

1:46 PM


  • After a year of owning my itouch. It finally cracked.. I was surprised it actually lasted this long withOUT getting cracked.
  • Friends finally got me to play Quelf.
  • Using my friend as a extra cushion.
  • Jaxson, having one of those days.
  • My ONLY job on Easter was to make green bean casserole, and of course, i cut my finqure on the green bean can... Only me...
  • I enjoyed wearing a tank top and shorts on Easter :)
  • Every weekend needs a little James Dean.
(kudos to Mrs.Lauren for always inspiring me to do a weekend photos post ;) )

Friday Favorite's

(1) looking up 1950's dress idea's for my graduation/18th birthday party.
I think I'm gonna go with the 1950's "rockabilly" look. Just gotta start piecing the outfit together. my outfit will look something like this --
Rockabilly by Samantha Clagett featuring a dot dress

(2) Playing apple tennis -
So this came out of boredom with "little one" yesterday. I mixed up a game of tennis by instead of hitting a tennis ball. We hit an apple. I watched "little one" LOL every time the apple SPLATTERED into the air in millions of pieces. Needless to say it was fun,
But for the parents sake we wont be doing it very often ;) lol

(3) Pink beach cruiser -
CAN'T wait till I get one of these babies. I'm asking for it for my birthday! isn't it a dream! :D




12:00 AM

Excuse the blurry picture.


This is Kevin.

Nope, Kevin is not a turkey.

Kevin is a Peacock.

The other night Kevin just showed up in our front yard.

We don't know where he came from. Not the slightest clue.

But every night he comes to our house and fly's up into the tree in our front yard.

And annoys mom with his calling sounds at 4 in the morning.

But, he is fun to talk to. My friend and I sat outside the other night talking to Kevin.
We probably scare the neighbors.

Oh, and why did we name him Kevin.

Because he resembled this Kevin...
