Current guilty pleasure: I wish I could say this is a short list but it is not, it is probably a toss up between: Rita's Cotton Candy Italian Ice, Lemon Cake, Baked Macaroni and Cheese, and Peanut Butter M&M's which confuse and titillate me at the same time... they aren't Reese Pieces but they are essentially the same thing...

Current nail color: Essie - Licorice (black) and Essie - Beyond Cozy (sparkles).

Current playlist:  Yes, it is absolutely incredible how one blog can have so many mentions of one Sexy Saxyphone playing man. Also, who takes a kid to a boardwalk party at night with shirtless men? God, get it together, Star!

I Still Believe - Tim Cappello / People are Strange - Echo and the Bunnymen / Lost in the Shadows - Lou Gramm / Cry Little Sister - Gerard McMann / Where is my Mind - Pixies / I'm Gonna Get You - Bizarre Inc feat Angie Brown / Midnight City - M83 / Under your Spell - Desire

Yo, DJ, Pump this Party. Ugh, my childhood was full of some pretty dance-tastic music.

Current drink: Water with sliced lemon and mint.

Current food: I will give you a hint, they are round and full of peanut butter.

Current Favorite TV Show:  The Sopranos. I know, I'm late to the game. All I have to say thus far is, mallards. I'm currently on season 3 but I've read all the spoilers.

This movie, For a Good Time, Call... made me giggle and it's on my wishlist.

Current wish list: New Look Victoriana Blouse // Clear Your Head Shaker Set // Elomi Caitlyn Bra // New Look Suedette Waterfall Jacket // ASOS Pleated Leggings // Musical Staff Meeting Cardigan // F21 Street Chic Feather Leggings // Tattoed Mermaid Umbrella // Baseball Tee // Peplum Sweater // Trouser Jean // New Look Diamante Bow Ballet // Embroidered Border Dress // Jersey Waterfall Zip Pocket Jacket // Black Polka Dot Layered Dress // Sienna Keyhole Peplum Top // City Chic Sequin Wrap Dress // City Chic Stripe Blazer // ASICS Gel Cumulus Running Shoes in Purple // For a Good Time, Call Blu-Ray // Kevin Hart - I'm a Grown Little Man // Monster High Draculaura Shoes // Workout top in Purple Heather // Black Yoga Pants // Red Layered Skirt // Panache Underwired Sports Bra // Panache Andorra Bra in Carribean // Cadbury Roses Tin // Rockstar Zip Pocket Jeans in Green // Twill Ankle Pants in Polka Dot // Polka Dot Pencil Skirt //


Current needs: To stop eating the bad things. Just, stop, it!

Current triumphs: I've lost 25lbs but we'll see if that sticks considering my addiction to putting all the wrong things in my mouth. On the plus side, I worked out an hour yesterday so yay me.

Current bane of my existence: Chocolate, cheese, pasta, cake, italian ice, and cats peeing on carpets!

Current outfit: Garfield t-shirt and Old Navy pajama bottoms with hearts and lions.

Current excitement: Hopefully some hiking. Halloween decor and decorating my house.

Current mood: Awake and pretty snappy.

It has been awhile since I've updated you on my Monster High collection and I am really behind on my plans to share pictures of the entirety of my collection (current) but our display room is still a disaster, actually it's a growing disaster because my Mother brought me all my stuff from my childhood room from her house and I still haven't gotten around to unpacking it (or finding a place for all of it). Anywho, I thought I'd share some pictures of my newest dolls, although to be perfectly honest this is only part of them.

These are my most recent ones (bought over the weekend), I found them at Walmart and I about died of excitement when I saw this Venus McFlytrap (bright pink hair), I absolutely adore her outfit. Part of my excitement was that I had no idea this four pack even existed and that is quite an oddity because I follow Monster High pretty intently.

Twyla is one of the newest dolls released with the 13 Wishes line and I just had to have her.

I wanted this Mad Science Pack so badly when I saw it in Toys R Us awhile back, especially because look at the dress Ghoulia is wearing, I don't know if you can tell but her dress is in a periodic table print. This set finally became mine a few weekends ago.

Last but not least (although the picture is really hard to tell) my finds and purchases from Target. They had the five pack Dance Class set including Gil (who is super hard to find!) for a bargain price and I couldn't pass on this Venus McFlytrap Dance Festival doll, who is quickly becoming my favorite doll. This Ghouls Night Out Spectra is so cute too, she his a little purple vinyl jacket and matching hat.

I honestly think I need an entire 3 feet shelf just for the dolls I've gotten recently. I probably should slow down and focus on adult things but these dolls are just so cute, I can barely help myself. Well, my cat is eating the curtains again so I better go.

Hey everyone, as usual I'm about a month in between posts but at least with that I have more news to update you with. In one of my last entries (here) I spoke about how I'm on a weight loss/improved health journey and I have now lost 25lbs! I was pretty excited because it was one of the short term goals I had set in my head and it is so great seeing my hard work pay off. My next short term goal is something between 35-40lbs so wish me luck. It is rough, I have been craving all the wrong things and my energy levels have been in the dumps but I'm slowly rolling through. I think with shows like 'The Biggest Loser' (of which I have never seen but I've heard how they work them out till they puke and demand immediate results) people have started to get some unrealistic views of weight loss in their heads - real weight loss takes time, a lot of permanent changes to your lifestyle, and a fuck ton of patience. I feel like this is taking forever but I know I'm going about it (with exception of a few bad days) the right way for me. One of my changes has been incorporating working out into my life which is not the easiest thing for me because to be honest I don't really care for it most of the time, I generally like walking/hikes but I hate going alone (so boring). I have been hitting up all the local parks for a walk or a hike with my fiance and it has been pretty good, I'm discovering some super picturesque places and seeing growing strength and agility in my body. Not to mention it gets me some new things to shop for - sports bras, yoga pants, running shoes, hiking shoes, cute workout tops, coordinating hats and sunglasses, etc.

A few weekends ago my fiance and I went to Riverbend Park and Great Falls Park. Our day at Riverbend was the best, the weather was amazing and we did a solid walk/hike for about 2 hours. I was exhausted about 3/4ths of the way through but I felt pretty amazing afterwards.

Sadly, our day at Great Falls wasn't quite as majestic since it started to rain and walking in the rain when you wear glasses is so irritating but the views at Great Falls are ridiculous. Great Falls was also jam packed full of humanity but it is kinda understandable considering the view.

Besides all that, my little sisters came to visit two weekends ago and we had a pretty good time, the visit was too brief but my little sister, Megan, had band camp starting on that Monday so we had to cut our visit short. I really enjoyed having them though and I was really bummed when they left. My little sister, Becky, is going into her senior year of high school so I'm trying to squeeze in as much time with her as I can before she goes off to college *sniff* they grow up so fast *sniff*. They really do, I remember the struggle of trying to put toddler shoes on her feet.

The weekend before Becky and Megan visited was my Fiances birthday so I threw a party at our house with friends. We played 'Cards Against Humanity', ate lemon cake and macaroni and cheese, and carried on as we tend to do.

I'm hoping to visit another park Wednesday or Thursday for a hike/walk/exploration that we didn't end up getting to this past weekend because of construction and maybe (fingers crossed) a visit to Ikea for some stuff around the house. On another note, some stores are already putting out their HALLOWEEN stuff out  so Halloween shopping and decorating has begun. I love Halloween, it cannot come sooner in my opinion.
