Momma visits!

I am literally about to leave the apartment right now to go pick up my mom from the airport!!! If you can't tell, I'm really excited to see her. When you've had five weeks of major growing up to do and feel really depressed about not finding a job and whatnot, sometimes you just need your mom and I'm so thankful that mine is more than willing to fly across the country to hug me.

Love, hugs, and wonderful moms...

Why hello Fall! Welcome back!

Happy first day of Fall! It's feeling rather crisp here in Southern California, but I'm dreaming of the reds, oranges, and yellows of the South on this fall day.

Isn't Fall lovely!? In other news... my momma is coming to visit Tuesday for a whole week! I'm SOOO excited! :)

Love, hugs, and the most wonderful time of the year...

Bridal Shower Ideas

Good afternoon lovely readers! As ya'll know, my best friend recently got engaged to the love of her life and as her best friend I'm super excited to throw her a Bridal Shower. However, I am in need of some prep-tastic ideas. Here's the happy couple!

I have a couple ideas about a shower, but since she reads this blog I'm just going to post a couple of ideas I got from these pictures. The shower will be around Christmas so I'm not sure if I should have a bit of a Holiday theme or a theme more catered to her interests OR a combination of the two. Any and all suggestions are highly appreciated!

The Men's Guide to Love

One of my good friends works for the Men's Guide to Love website and sent me this video this morning. Two adult identical twins finish each other's sentences and give other men advice on love. Enjoy!

A little bit of this, a little bit of that...

First off, Congrats Regis Philbin on your new world record as the person with the most hours on U.S. television!

As most of you know, I've been on the job hunt for a while now. Unfortunately, all I've been able to find are more unpaid internships. So I have finally decided to go ahead and go with another internship. I found one at an international advertising and marketing consulting firm called 360 Creative Inc. that I'm pretty excited/nervous about. It's a three month social media marketing internship with the intent to hire full-time after three months. I also interviewed for another one that I really want, also social media marketing as well as the chance to cover red carpet events, but I haven't heard back from them yet, sadly. I'm trying to look on the bright side of things and have decided that I'm simply going to do the best I can and work as hard as I can to move up and succeed. How am I going to pay the bills for three months? Good question. It's super tough to get a serving job out here. You have to have quite an extensive serving resume in order to get a job. On a funny note, I was searching through Craigslist trying to find a part time job that would help with the bills, and I accidentally clicked on a janitorial job. I immediately starting laughing hysterically because as it turns out, I'm not even qualified for a janitorial job because I don't have any experience! It was one of those times where you either laugh or cry. I'm praying for faith. God always delivers.

Also, today I plan on writing ALL DAY. It is time to buckle down on my novel. As NTP so wisely said, my dream of publishing a novel will never come true if I keep putting off writing. I do that because sometimes I read over it and hate everything I've written and then get into a mindset that I'm a terrible writer. So I'm fighting that demon today and I'm getting on track.

Wish me luck!

Love, hugs, and pushing through the pain...

Dear Noles...

Dear Seminoles,

Let me begin by saying I love you dearly, but you hurt my heart today boys. I woke up ready for an Oklahoma upset (I mean, what exactly are Sooners?) and even after the first touchdown (seriously refs? I'm blaming you for that one) I still had faith that ya'll would fight back and we'd go back to Tallasnazzy with a win. But letting them score on every possession? Boys boys boys. But not to fret, there's always next week. And C.P. I love you like puddin n pie, so please don't force me to defend your manhood and respond to an obnoxious gator's comment by remarking on his mullet while I'm minding my own business trying to leave the sports bar. K thanks.

Love always,
Your loyal fan Ally

P.S. Sorry to all my gator readers. I'm sure none of ya'll have mullets, but you should have SEEN this guy's. Wow.
