Hello - my name is Hilary and it's been over three months since my last blog post...(I know, I suck)

I will also be 25 in a few short weeks so I found this to be appropriate...

...my random 25...

1. I'm a homebody.
2. Jesse and I have date night every Friday, even if it's just sitting on the couch with a good movie.
3. My dog sleeps with me every night no matter what.
4. I have a totally unrational fear of grasshoppers.
5. I am a sucker for sweets.
6. I go to kickboxing twice a week and I.love.it.
7. I like to go to bed early.
8. Those jeans shrunk in the dryer. Period.
9. I think bellybuttons are icky.
10. I could spend all day taking photos and I'd be completely content.
11. I have a cat named Stinky who now lives with my parents.
12. I am not an emotional person (no matter what my parents say...)
13. I took this picture a few weeks ago and haven't stopped giggling since...

14. I have a hard time making decisions, even if its something as simple as what's for dinner.
15. I hate humidity even though I've lived in Florida my whole life.
16. I went to Bahrain for the whole summer when I was 11.
17. I am very easily amused.
18. I hate Nirvana. There, I said it. It all because of the horrendous note he hits at the end of Heart  Shaped Box...it's like nails on a chalkboard.
19. I love useless trivia.
20. I love to cook and I never measure ingredients.
21. I find it difficult to sleep past 7am...even on the weekends.
22. I despise raw celery.
23. I love the smell of rain.
24. I don't think people should change who they are because of the people they are with.
25. Driving with the windows down and blasting good music puts me in a really good mood.

there's a liiiiiiight.....

Anyone catch the Rocky Horror Picture Show reference in the title?
Moving on...

I've learned there is always a silver lining...
(that was last night after kickboxing)

No matter how bad you think it's gonna get...it always works out...I'm a lucky girl :-)

In other news:
It's another scorcher out there...
yep. 104 degrees. Holy heat wave batman!

not cool.
no pun intended ;-)

reality check

So remember this picture?
Well, one of these three have it on their facebook page.
Sweet, right?

Well, last night I saw a comment that someone had posted...
"is that your mom?"

umm...I'll give you a minute to ponder that...


So much for my ego...

Followed by a heated game of basketball...

turtle, turtle

Happy Memorial Day!
This morning I woke up to this...
What a pretty morning! Aside from the fact that I woke up at 6:45 on my day off. Stupid internal clock...

My morning was spent something like this.
I mean, what's better than good food and a good book...really...?

After reading my time will be spent doing school work...meh. I actually just got an e-mail from one of my teachers telling me that I should really just withdrawl from her class...I mean, aren't teachers suppose to encourage their students?? Plus, she sent the e-mal to all the students who she thought weren't doing as well as they should be...and she didn't blind copy. So everyone who got the e-mail is all in everyone elses business...very unprofessional. I'm not a bad student and let me tell you that this was a definite hit to my ego...oh well...onward and upward!

-insert segue-

Evey met a new friend this morning!

Yep - a turtle. And let me tell you, this little guy was hauling some serious tail. He was the speediest turtle I ever saw!

And then they just stopped and looked at each other

and stood...

Now this is about where one of my neighbors walked by and started laughing...
oh well. lol

This little lady got a hair cut

Last time they butchered her ears so I tell them to leave them long...heh

Famous last words. Because now she kinda looks like...

C'mon...maybe just a little? hehe
Or maybe she looks like Chewbacca and Salacious Crumb had an illegitimate love child. Explain that Star Wars geeks...booyah!

In other news, I'm a glutton for punishment! (Please, hold the applause) I am taking summer classes and I'm less than enthusiastic. It has been my main reason for lack of posting on here. When you try to cram 16 weeks worth of material into a 10 week course, you get a little bogged down. So if my posting is slightly less than stellar, I apologize *heart*

Although......I will be going to NC for a slight vacation starting at the end of next week (wahoo!)...so more pictures to come!
