sweet tea on a friday....

I very rarely indulge in Bojangles' sweet tea anymore, usually just on Fridays. Well, I guess with the upcoming Hurricane (Come on Irene...I swear (well he means) At this moment, you mean everything...Eileen,'s all the same) and the sweet tea in me, my mind has ponder on some wedding ideas. I was never really a pink girl. I mean, I have some pink and I wear it, but it's not my first choice. With that being said...i have picked out a few color choices that I like....and I don't think there are any pink. (courtesy of

OK, they are a little hard to see....but here are the pallets: Coral, Tangelo and Teal; Turquoise, Royal Blue and Electric Green; Royal Blue and Marigold; Onyx, Pewter and Cloud.
Yea, the common factor in all is Blue...I will have some type of blue Incorporated in the wedding. If I had to rate them, it would go something like this:
1. Turquoise, Royal Blue and Electric Green
2. Royal Blue and Marigold
2. Coral, Tangelo and Tea
3. Onyx, Pewter and Cloud (think this one is a little more formal than what I am thinking)

And I found this SUPER SUPER cute idea for a bouquet (not going to do it, but maybe some thing in the decor)

Expedition Impossible

So, I'm kinda a fan of reality shows. Ok, I'm a big fan of them. I love them. One that I have taken a liking to has been Expedition Impossible. This is on ABC on Thursday nights and if you have ever seen Amazing Race, it's like that. You have teams of 3 and they have checkpoints and missions. The one difference between the two is the teamwork of the teams. Amazing Race is so cutthroat; Expedition Impossible is all about working with your team. One of the teams I am a fan of is "No Limits". They have been in the front most of the race, but the most amazing thing about them is one of their team members is blind. Watching the 3 of them work together and help each other is just so heartwarming. And the blind guy, well don't worry about him, because he holds his own. It's towards the end of the season and they have overcome so many obstacles (including one guy almost breaking his foot). It really is a neat thing to watch.

Don't get me wrong....I don't get all this sappy while watching Teen Mom, The Challenge, Survivor, Bridezilla and whatever else I can find :)

and it starts....again

OK, so this is the first post on the new blog. Yes, I had another blog, but I got to thinking about it, "If I just stick with a cooking blog, I will only target one audience" so, I'm going to mix it up a bit. I've decided to document the next couple of years. For those who don't know, I am getting married in April 2013. So, why not document everything I am going through....and throw in some fun stuff along the way.

I warn you now, I am random. I will probably jump around a bit....just hang on :)

So my bit of randomness......
My laptop that I have had for years burned out on me. I have probably had that laptop for 7 years. It lasted me 4 grand years working at a summer camp (it was my right hand...i swear) and 3 years after. It was a great laptop, when it needed to be. Well, it started fading out on me and I was smart enough to backup my pictures from the laptop. WELL...i forgot to back up my music files....and if you know me, you know my music library was AMAZING!!!! I had an old school ipod that went with my music files (it died...kept getting the sad ipod face) and it was a was glorious. Long story short..ish....I had to replace my laptop and cry about the music files that are on the dead laptop that I could not retrieve because it was dead.  I've been building my new music library with the new songs I've wanted for some time. By the way....some of the music I have on my old library were obtained by downloading from shared sites (before it went illegally...technically).

Today totally made my day. A nice guy from work helped me out, pulled my old hard drive and and BAM.....I HAVE ALL MY OLD MUSIC BACK!!!! Oh happy day, happy day!!!
