you know. you know?

i know i trashed on jef a little bit last week, and so it seems only fair that arie gets to take a ride on "chelsea's train of judgement".

i mean it's only fair right?

let's dive right in shall we?

it really bugs me that he always seems to have acne just below his jaw line. yes, it is a really petty, and completely unimportant detail to get so hung up on. but really? can't someone get the guy some face wash, or even a few dabs of h2o2? no? well I know there has to be some makeup crew just off camera to make sure emily's lipstick stays intact after all the makin' those two do. soooo maybe lets cover them up? just a thought.

it also seems that each of the men on this season have some form of verbal diarrhea with a certain word or phrase.

arie's choice? "you know". after everything that he says he kind of nods his head a bit, and then pulls out the super intelligent "you know?"

really? that's all that you can come up with?

and emily always just seems to follow right along. is it just me, or does she seem to take on the traits of each guy that she is with. no wonder it seems like she is going to have such a rough time picking someone at the end of all of this.

oh boy, what a train wreck.

hmm... trains seem to be a popular theme with me lately.

there are a few things that i need to clear up here


my guilty pleasure is the bachelor/bachelorette series

yes, yes i know. go ahead and judge me. because i kind of do, a little bit. oh heck, i hate myself for it somedays.


the title? all those strikes are the amount of times that the word "like" was used in a 1 minute conversation between jef (yes with only one "f") and emily.

i'm just not a fan of that man. boy? school boy? man-child? i dunno. definitely not someone that i think she should be with.

i mean can you imagine if they ended up together? any conversation they would have would just take forever! even just watching the conversations that take place between them now, i even leave them thinking "...what just happened... *blank stare*".

can't you just imagine their arguments?

oh heaven help us

i just wouldn't see it going any farther than this:

- you just like...
- why do you like...
- ugh it's just like..
- i just hate that like...
- when you like...

i think you get what i'm saying

and his hair?

well, all that i am going to say is... actually all i'm going to do is do a big ole eye squint and head tilt.

some people bite their tongue, i squint and tilt.

mostly because my tongue is too sore from all the biting.

the thing about bangs is...

i have this love hate relationship with bangs

i luv 'em, i really really do, they look good, some days even great! they help hide my widows peak that i am weirdly very self conscious of, and tame the multiple cowlicks i have along my hair line. it is also quite amazing how a nicely styled bang can turn any normal hair style into something super cute, likadee split.

but you know what? they make me want to blow my brains out every. single. morning.

or beat my own head with my hair brush.

yes, that has happened before.

it's the time that i have to invest to get them looking decent enough to go out into the world. and with this thick hair of mine, it really does take a good chunk of time to look like i didn't just stick my finger in the electric outlet before stepping out the door, and heaven knows what happens if i leave those suckers to their own devices, i may as well be welcomed into friz/flyaway/justplainwrong city. so just letting them be is completely out of the question.

i am currently in the process of growing these bangs of mine out, and what a long and painful process that is.

i can't tell you how many times i have looked at myself in the mirror and thought "all i need is a good pair of scissors and that would be it" (that could soooo be taken out of context hey?), and the thing is i knew this would happen.

that is why i had an action plan in place. i told dennis that no matter how much i begged and argued, that he was to restrain me from cutting my bangs by any means possible.

and this is probably the one and only time that i will ever say in the history of my entire life, but...

i hate that he listens to me.

which, now that i think about it, i also have a love hate relationship with...

a name

well i did it!

i finally figured out a name for this here blog..

it took me a while, mostly because it took me a while to figure out what my purpose in starting in the first place, why i continue, and what i want out of it.

i want this to be a place for me to document our life together, what we do, where we go, and everything else that the future has in store for us.

i know that this is the second change in the past 8 months, but this is the last one.

i promise.

if i were a shoe, i would be you!

you know, the weather these past few days has just been absolutely, well, crappy. 
i mean seriously, what was with that rain storm in the middle of the night last night? 
some people actually need to get some sleep every now and then ya know?

but then this afternoon the weather gods decided to take some pity on us water logged folk, and shed some big, beautiful rays of sunshine down on us. it only lasted for a few hours before the grey clouds crept their way back over us, but oh how glorious those hours were. 

so this afternoon, to take advantage of the sun, dennis and i decided to meet up for lunch. and as i was walking downtown taking in the fresh crisp air, ducking under (yes under) the tree branches to get around all the other people hogging the sidewalk, i couldn't help but think about all of the cute summer shoes that i wish i was wearing on my feet, rather than the big clunky boots i currently had on. 

oh, and the shoe gods know how much i love me a cute pair of shoes. especially ones that show off my freshly painted toes!

needless to say, shoes have been somewhere in the forefront of my mind ever since 2:30 this afternoon. 

most specifically these ones...

1. 2. 3. 
4. 5. 6. 

i'm sensing a pink theme.  

what do you think?

another change

i have been itching to change the format of my blog for a while now, and i have been trying a few things out. 

so for the next little bit please excuse the unfinished products that may be popping up here and there.
