Hey there, nice to meet you! I'm 26, engaged, and live in the Midwest. I love good books, bright lipstick, and spending ridiculous amounts of time on Instagram and Pinterest. Let's be friends!

Fancy that!

Just a quick post to let everyone know I'm still here!

I've been working and hanging out with Justin and my friends :)

Excitement such as:

* A night out for Kaity's of my besties. She's pretty much my twin...we're both really artsy and random...the only difference is she has blue hair :D
We sang Bad Romance and danced around like idiots because it was karaoke night. SO MUCH FUN!

* Another night out, this time with Justin, a bunch of his friends, and my roomie April. We played pool for awhile (I beat Justin once, go me!) Then we came back to our apartment and played some beer pong and Wii Fit.

*Yesterday Justin and I went to this awesome vintage store, where I found two rock magazines from 1979. Score! Then we met up with our friend Cassie to eat popsicles and go to a playground. When we got there the merry-go-round was spinning by itself, there was nobody else there! It was so creepy that Justin took a video of it on his

Anywho, that's what I've been up to!

Riders on the storm

There's a big thunderstorm going on here right now, lightning is flashing like every 3 seconds....scary!

Yesterday Justin, April and I went to a museum and then wandered around downtown. The museum was fun, they had all kinds of animals and in the gift shop I found a really creepy but cool stuffed raven. I wanted him but he scared April so I'm not allowed to bring him into our apartment...haha. Downtown was ok, there wasn't much to see. We did find a coffeehouse though, so we took the time to get drinks!

Today Justin and I went to visit his parents for an early Father's Day celebration. His dad liked the movie and card we found for him. Now we're sitting on the couch watching Ice Age 2 with April....see?


Yeah, the glasses are making an appearance...I already took my contacts out for the night. :P

I got you babe

Sitting in my kitchen right now, got off work about 2 hours ago. I've been listening to old music with the roomies and watching the second Ninja Turtles movie since then...haha.

Last night Justin and I went out for a beer. I don't drink a lot, but I miss the atmosphere of being in a reminds me of fun nights out with friends the past few summers. :)

I have two days off now, tomorrow and Thursday! I'm excited....I need to think of something fun to do!!

Time will see us realign, diamonds reign across the sky

(Just an FYI, the lyrics in my title are from a new Deftones song 'Diamond Eyes''s amazing!)

Now for that long delayed post I promised awhile back!

Last weekend I went to a carnival with Cassie, a friend from work and had a blast! We rode the scrambler twice and the second time Cassie worked her charms on the ride operator and got us on for free :) Besides that, I ate lots of really unhealthy carnival food (funnel cake, corn dog, sno cone) but it was yummy.

So I bet you're wondering what movie I was referring to in my last post? Justin and I watched The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and it was AWESOME! I'm not usually one for fantasy type movies, but this one blew me away. The storyline was entertaining, and the visual appearance of the movie was just breathtaking, especially the costumes. It was a little sad seeing Heath Ledger in it, knowing that he's no longer around, but he did a really excellent job in his scenes. I wish Johnny Depp had a larger role in it, but I can't have everything I want :)

By far though, my favorite person in the movie was Lily Cole. I didn't know she had gotten into acting at all, I've only seen her as a model. I was pleasantly surprised at what a good actress she is. Her costumes and makeup were some of the best I've seen in a movie, just look at this!

Definitely worth watching for fashion or makeup inspiration!
