top two tuesday.

top 2 favorite cities

1. charleston, south carolina. i love charleston so much and am so proud to be from there, i love going downtown and being able to walk around and just enjoy it. though, since i am technically from mount pleasant, maybe i can consider charleston as a favorite place to visit!

2. anchorage, alaska. i've actually never been to alaska, but i would love, love, love to go there... i realize that i don't actually like cold weather, but i think that i could get over it for views like this.

what are your favorite cities? link up and let everyone know!

miscellany monday.

1. i am really trying to get a handle on this whole lack of blogging thing... hopefully i will return soon, though life is just so busy!

2. i have my old computer back as well as a really festive macbook pro to use, i am loving it. i've never been much of a mac user, but i must admit- i am kind of loving it.

3. i am afraid that my favorite. most delightful. makes my hair not look so crazy. yummy smelling. shampoo and conditioner are, for some reason, being phased out- this worries me like no other... i bought the last two bottles that bilo had when i was doing grocery shopping last week and have people looking at home and in clemson for it whenever they see it... 

dear people at tresemme,
why am i having such a hard time finding flawless curls shampoo, conditioner, and mouse? i am worried.
sincerely, your biggest fan.

4. this past weekend sean came up and visited- loved. loved. loved. it. thanks for the prayers, by the way, this transition hasn't been nearly as bad as last year's transition! we also found a scrumptious restuarant this weekend, it took some scouting out, but it was so worth it. loved it.

5. my roommate and her boyfriend have been dating for 5 years today, i think that is just dandy. a whole half of a decade, so sweet! just had to give them their own number, they deserve it.

6. have you ever tried designing something on a mac? i am in love... i made a little background for "my" new computer... still trying to make it mine forever, and it is fabulous- i love it.
7. one day i will actually post some pictures of my apartment, it is looking wonderful... though with the lack of my computer i haven't been able to load my pictures- it is on the list, have no fear.

i hope that you have a fabulous monday! don't forget to go to carissa's blog and link up!

it is a miscellany monday!

link up your randomness!

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1. my absence from the blog community does not mean i don't like you... just that i have been incredibly busy and due to the fact that...

2. my computer is completely broken. it is sitting in ccit (our campus computer fixing people) as we speak and they are trying to fix it... we shall see how that goes.

3. this is my first blog post from clemson since moving back here- yep. that's how crazy it has been!

4. the apartment is looking super-cute- i would take pictures and show you, however, due to randomness numbers 1 and 2 i have been unable.

5. i get to order my clemson ring this week. i. am. beyond. excited. 

6. i like to have the foodnetwork on when i am cooking or eating supper because it makes me feel like my food is better than it really is.

7. mccormick makes these fabulous "perfect pinch" seasoning options... go check them out- my chicken tasted like a professional chicken last night... as in a professional made it, not that frank sinatra was embodied in a chicken, just in case that wasn't clear.

alright... this is for sure a quick post...

change of scenery.

tonight is my last night of sleeping in my bed for a while, because i'm off to move across the state! there are so many emotions going on right now, which is why- instead of sleeping right now, i am awake in bed, with the urge to write. i am 100% excited about my apartment, my sweet roommates, and my amazing friends- yet at the same time i am just so sad that i am leaving charleston. home. security.

today i stopped by my church to give sean and some other guys who were doing yard work (in 100 degree heat, no less) some sonic slushies and then to hang out in the office for a bit before i ran a few more errands and on my way out of the office i just started crying. not even cute crying (because i am convinced that actually does exist- i also know that i do not possess the skills to "cute cry")... just plain old trying not to hyperventilate crying and just trying to get out of the door before the intense water works occurred... not my best moment.

so now, the scene hasn't really changed too much- i'm in the house i've grown up in. sitting in my "big girl bed" that i have had since i was 5. trying not to cry and feel so sad that i'm leaving.

however, in all of this i am realizing that there is something so incredibly wrong with this picture. in my sadness i continue to try and rely on myself to feel better instead of throwing my pain and sadness to my Father who can heal all. i would sincerely ask for your prayers as sean and i once again make the transition from living in the same city to living across the state from one another- this set up isn't exactly favorable, however, it is just for a season. i am constantly having to remind myself that even though i may have great skills in planning- i certainly don't want to be the one planning my life on my own terms- that just sounds like it is destined for trouble.

thank you for listening... or reading sweet friends- i resting in the fact that He is in control over all things and that i am being provided for.
 "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. -Matthew 6: 25- 34
please excuse my lack of blogging as of late, i've been incredibly busy with finals, packing, and just generally trying to stay sane!

top two tuesday- simple pleasures.

linking up with the undomestic momma
top 2 simple pleasures

{one} curling up with a good book. i absolutely love being able to curl up and read a book. it is simply wonderful... i also have the added benefit of getting to curl up with a snuggie, not to mention a clemson snuggie! [don't judge- so not fashionable, but so comfy!] but don't worry- i do not wear it in public... that is just too much. plus, because i apparently feel no shame, i will allow you to laugh at my expense by looking at the photos below!
notice the nicholas sparks book? yep... i've read all of them- and i read most of them last semester (because reading actual textbooks is way. over. rated.)

{two} taking walks. i thoroughly enjoy a good walk every now and then- along the beach, along the street, through a field- the place isn't so much of the focus as the person you are with. i enjoy being able to walk along with someone and just enjoy each-other's company. i also enjoy a good walk when i need to think- perfect thinking time.

other top favorites:
- dancing in the kitchen
- the smell of sunscreen
- getting a big bear hug
- the smell of home after being gone for a long time

what are your favorite simple pleasures? link up and share!

miscellany monday.

keep it random and keep it fun! link up!
Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

[1] stay alive- drive 55.
i'm fairly confident that used to be a slogan for driving slow a long time ago... if not, it should have been because it is fairly catchy... however- on saturday we drove up to clemson with all of my furniture with a trailer attached to the back of the car... meaning we could only go 55 mph the whole way. in case you didn't know- it is 240 miles to clemson.
[2] no more detour.
for the last 7 months part of i-385 has been closed and we've had to detour through small towns in order to get to school- meaning it takes longer... however, on the trip up this weekend we discovered that it is no longer closed... if you went to school with me you would understand. when you already have a long way to drive [see map] adding distance isn't really the most favorable choice.
[3] in need of a trim.
i need a hair cut really bad... if someone would like to head over to my house and give me a trim, just let me know!

[4] light at the end of the tunnel.
summer school is almost finished, however- i start school again on august 18th... so it is a small period of time between school... 

[5] mix it up.
i received a philadelphia cream cheese cookbook for my birthday... i.e. nothing in this cookbook is healthy... but i can almost guarantee that it is all going to be delicious.

[6] national holiday.
did you know that cheesecake has a national holiday? it is july 30th... had i known that i would have whipped up something delicious in honor of that day- looks like i missed my perfect opportunity... something will come up, i am sure of it.

[7] afraid of jillian.
i am now the owner of jillian michaels fitness ultimatum 2010 for the wii... i said i wanted a fun game and this is what i got... hmm. however, i am secretly afraid of starting this because she is scarey... and thanks to the motion sensors on the wii, she will also know when i am slacking- and i. am. afraid.
go ahead and act like you aren't just a little bit intimidated... you would be lying.

[8] oh the irony.
notice that there is a picture of cheesecake and then a picture of jillian michaels? probably not a good sign... well, here's to overcoming my fear of jillian so that i can burn off the cheesecake!

happy monday! make sure to link up!
