true story of walmart

saturday night at the provo wal-mart
josh and i are buying books
(<--i bought this lovely one)

we get to the checkout
and the man looks at us
with a smirk and snidely remarks,
"buying books on a saturday night?
i know that's what i do on the weekend."

excuse me sir?!? did you really just say that??
cuz what i am thinking is you have no room to talk.
if you are going to go out in public in a t-shirt and shorts,
thick coke bottle glasses, work at wal-mart (no offense to anyone)
and be so thin a strong breeze could take you down in 2.5 seconds
you don't get to make fun of us for the choice of activity.

best part of the incident:
when josh felt he needed to defend us and stated
"dont worry...we've already been to a party tonight."

the end.

living by prada-isms

i got the email this morning informing me
that my halloween costume
(that i got on sale)
is finally in the mail

which means it is time to start living life
according to the motto of one of my fav movie characters:
"I'm on this new diet. Well, I don't eat anything and when I feel like I'm about to faint I eat a cube of cheese. I'm just one stomach flu away from my goal weight."
(emily--the devil wears prada)

okay so you all know that i could not give up my love
for carbs long enough to make this happen
however
it was the first thing i thought about when the email came60 days, 10 hours, 5 minutes and 56 seconds left til halloween

sleeping beautifully

if only the title were true
maybe what i am missing is:
zac efron semi-creepily kissing my cheek?
tonight i am an uber tired little lady
and i hate my new bed
despite the money i have put into making it nice

all i want to do is crawl
into my little tiny bed at home
fall asleep
and wake up to my mom

instead i will jump into my new big bed
read trueblood
turn out the lights
toss and turn til 4am
and wake up to no one

i am tired tonight
in more ways than just being sleepy
and i miss my home.

is your blood true?

my latest literary addiction:the rundown
Bon Temps, Louisianna is a world where being a vampire is considered a virual disease, and both vampires and humans live amongst each other. Sookie Stackhouse is a quiet, gorgeous, small town waitress with a small problem. She can read people's minds, which (obviously) makes dating in search of Mr. Right a little hard. Enter Bill Compton. The tall, dark, handsome man whose mind Sookie can't read, probably because he is a vampire. Sound familiar?? These 7 novels by CHARLAINE HARRIS are currently the core behind the hit HBO drama TrueBlood.Fact: Anna Paquin won the Best Actress Golden Globe last year for her role as Sookie Stackhouse.

opinion
1.) The world Harris creates is well thought out and finely crafted. Vampires exist due to a disease they have contracted. They drink synthetic blood served in bars like it's a form of alcohol to keep from killing people. When a vampire bites it doesn't kill you or turn you into a vampire. And of course, there is prejudice against them as history has proved is true for most minority groups.
2.) Harris can actually WRITE. After the literary disaster of dear STEPHANIE MEYER'S four novels (don't get me wrong, I LOVE Twilight, but girlfriend can't write) it is nice to read a series of books in which the author can stand on literary ground.
3.) Human falls in love with vampire and mass chaos ensues...fantastic.

so go out and grab your copies
the first in the series is
Dead Until Dark
happy reading

soulmates

CHARLOTTE YORK GOLDENBLATT once said
Maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates, and guys are just people to have fun with

On that note, I would like to introduce bff BREE
(bree is the blonde with the amazing betsey johnson shoes far right)
(your's truly is the bergdorf brunette in the middle)

The Beginning
Once upon a time bff THAT WIFE called upon her best girlfriends to get all dressed up and support her in one of the most significant events of her life. That Wife happened to call upon moi and one of her cousins, Bree. I remember meeting Bree halfway through the wedding day, in the lobby of the hotel where we were about to begin a photo shoot. Here is how it went:

Bree: "Hi, I don't know you, my name is Aubree
Me: Hi, my name is Jessica. It's nice to meet you..."

And it pretty much is history from that point on. For the rest of the day we chatted and caught up on each others lives like we were simply dear old friend's who hadn't seen each other in a while. That night we hugged goodbye and stated that despite the fact we barely knew each other, we felt like we were already best friends.

Interesting Fact
Until I moved to UT...I had only spent a total of 6 hours with Bree. Now that is fate.

Why I LOVE Her
1.) She shares an extreme passion for reading, introducing me to such titles as How to Be Your Own Matchmaker.
2.) We laugh about silly things I feel only she would understand.
3.) Together we may be about the girliest two people you will ever meet, but we are always up for anything.
4.) I can talk to her about everything.
5.) Charlotte might just have got it right when she said our girlfriends are our soul-mates. Because I honestly believe she is mine.

Love you Bree. SOOOOO excited for our UT adventures.

i ain't sayin' she's a gold digger

yesterday as I was curling my hair
dealing with my bleeding scalp
(another story for another day)
(although dear friend JOSH so lovingly called me a zombie)
i was so worried about not touching my scalp
i forgot about my neck

did you know curling iron burns on the neck
look a little too much like a specific something else?
well now you do

even better my roommate's mother comes
into my room this morning
asking for some printer paper
due to the fact that I had not had a chance
to cover my neck with covergirl
she just starred at me
if a stare could say a thousand words
i can only imagine what was racing through her mind

it doesn't help that same friend josh gave me this:to decorate my wall with this week
which was clearly visible to roomie's mom
i am a bad example already

notes:
i promise it is a curling iron burn
bff BREE can vouch for my whereabouts last night
if anyone is going to come close to my neck
it's gonna be edward cullen
kidding. sorta.

quote of the week

during a texting conversation with my mother
(whom we call Kiki, story for another day)

Kiki: "What are you doing?
Me: Just got home, gonna do some pilates.
Kiki: Ohhhh silk what's her name here you come. He he ha ha."

how i love my mother.
don't know which is better...
the fact that she can't remember silk spectre's name
or
the fact that she wrote "he-space-he-space-ha-space-ha"

currently listening to

i will admit: i love her partially because i have been confused for her once or twice or maybe even three times

but other than that she honestly can hold her own
she is the only girl to come out of the disney machine who actually has talent
(not that i don't love you ms. tisdale)
(i just don't love your signing)
and the album isn't half bad
fav song: here we go again

audrey meets gwen

so maybe i am a little biased because
she plays my fav television character of all time
or maybe she is just an incredible dresser
either way
she wins best dressed of the week(leighton meester at the 2009 teen choice awards)
its audrey hepburn meets gwen stefani
and i am in love for the following 5 reasons:
1.) hair and makeup properly done
2.) its girly
3.) she let's the dress speak for itself w/o weighing it down with accessories
4.) the cut of the skirt is fantastic
5.) the shoes...need i say more?!?

us girls we are so magical

if i had a penny for every person who has asked me
(since last night's concert)
"did you kiss a girl?"
i could buy myself the mac i really really am coveting right now

to their sassyness i reply with a little of my own
"yep, and i liked it."

now to my mormon readers
i am STILL a good girl
and NO i did not really kiss a girl
it is a song by this lovely ladywho i got to see in concert last night
as the opening act for NO DOUBT

she is my favorite
and as you can tell from her outfit
she is pretty much a 5 yr old in a 24 yr old's body

her entire band was dressed in pink
her set was picket fences, blow up strawberries and giant flamingos

so after last night
it pretty much is official
katy perry and i were BFF's in another life

imaginary friends

we have all had them
and if you are a guy named Tim Burton
yours just happen to be people like this man...here is Comic Con story #1

We were sitting waiting for the "Twilight" panel to start around 2pm. The "Alice in Wonderland" panel was at 11am and was announced to just be with director Tim Burton. I have a soft spot in my heart for Mr. Burton. because although I do fit into more of the "Breakfast at Tiffany's" crowd, I had a weird knack for such things as "The Nightmare Before Christmas." Well, he sat in his seat on the stage and charmed us with his wit and an exclusive trailer to "Alice..." (set to my new fav song from MGMT "time to pretend") The guy interviewing him kept asking if he had anything else to show us and Mr. Burton kept replying, "Well, the movie isn't even done yet, so really this is all I have." Thus, we kept watching the trailer over and over again, in between the thousands of fan questions. Well, finally at the end the interviewer asked one more time if he had anything more and Mr. Burton said, "Well I do have pictures from my family summer vacation if you would like to see them?? Or sometimes when I close my eyes one of my imaginary friends shows up." And the next thing I know...I am in the same room as Johnny Depp. Best experience at Comic-Con by far.

More stories and pictures to come
