Catch up

I've been a total blog slacker this week (again). I'm keeping up with y'alls and trying to make time for mine as often as possible! I am going to do 3 days of the picture challenge in this post to catch up more quickly:

Day 4: A picture of your night

Last night I didn't do a whole lot of anything haha. I made coconut shrimp for supper with the WW recipe (SO good) and then relaxed and watched Jersey Shore with Zach! We had some really rainy thundery weather so it was a good night to stay in and hang out.

Day 5: A picture of your favorite memory:

I have so many favorite memories it's hard to pick only I didn't!
This was on a trip I took with 2 of my girlfriends, Brianna and Amanda. We went on a cruise my senior year in college and had so much fun. This picture is from when we climbed Dunns River Falls in Jamaica.
This is Spring Break of my senior year in college when I went to Key West for the week. From left is Erica, Brianna, me, my sister Chelsea, and Amanda. We had such a good time!

I could do a whole post on favorite trips! Hmmm not a bad idea.

Day 6: A picture of a person you'd love to trade places with for a day:
I just love Sex and the City and I am definitely a lot like Charlotte so I would love to be able to have fabulous hair like hers and wear some of her clothes!

I also have a question for any of y'all who are doing weight it working for you? I've been doing it for 7 weeks and have barely seen any results. This is following the program to a T and working out 3-4 times a week...and I'm just getting really frustrated. I am curious to see how others are doing on it and maybe you have some suggestions for me.

After work today I'm off to Jackson to do a little shopping for my beach weekend that's in a few weeks! :)

Day 3: A picture of the cast from your favorite TV show

Day 3 of the Blogging Photo Challenge: A picture of the cast from your favorite TV show

There is no way I can pick just one show. I love so many!
My overall first-will never be surpassed-all time favorite show is Sex and the City. I can pretty much recite the entire series!
I'm obsessed with Weeds. This show is so good.
My favorite guilty pleasure show. I can't ever get sick of watching the drama.

Day 2 of Blog Picture Challenge!

Day 2: A picture of you and the person you've been closest with the longest

My sister Chelsea!!

Here we are when we were little on our grandparents boat.

Here we are a couple years ago on a cruise.

Chelsea is one of the funniest people I know. She always cracks me up with her comebacks. She is fun to shop with, talk with, watch movies with, and one of the very few people I can road trip with. I'm so glad she's my sister!

Day One: A picture of yourself with 10 facts
This picture was taken in Philadelphia, PA when I was at an AIChE conference :)

1. I am a HUGE college football fan. I cheer on the Florida Gators and Mississippi State Bulldogs. Only 198 days till kickoff!

2. I'll be done with my Masters degree this August from MS State :)

3. I have 2 tattoos...hidden of course!

4. My favorite place in the world is Key West

5. I think call waiting is rude. I try as hard as I can never to use it.

6. I LOVE Dave Matthews Band

7. I'm thrilled that it's almost baseball season. MS has amazing weather this week and I can't wait to watch some games! I'm cheering on my Gators, "Diamond Dawgs", Red Sox, and Rays

8. I seriously think TV is one of my hobbies. It's pathetic. I have a show for every night of the week. Monday is Gossip Girl and Cake Boss, Tuesday is Cupcake Wars and Teen Mom, Wednesday is Law and Order SVU, Thursday is Jersey Shore, and Friday is whatever wedding show is on TLC. I need a life haha.

9. I'm incredibly hard headed and impatient.

10. I love baking. I would rather bake all day than cook one meal...but I've been getting better!

I did it! I got an iPhone!

I gave in...I got the Verizon iPhone when it came out (for existing customers) last week. It arrived on Monday!
The cases Verizon had at the store for them....well I wasn't a huge fan. I just wanted a hot pink case or a bright green case but they only had blacks, blues, and purple! Then I thought...I'll get a pink AND green cases :) I just have to wait a few weeks until the pink and green Lilly case in either Bloomers (the pink one with the green flowers) or Floaters the green seahorses with pink flowers. So cute! Thanks to Medical Prepster for letting me know about Lilly's cases!

I do really miss my BlackBerry...I've been a BB devotee for years and I feel guilty looking at it being unused on my table :( I'm trying to remind myself of how much it drove me crazy when it froze and how great the apps are on the iPhone. Like Words with Friends! I'm ADDICTED! So far I've only been playing my sister so y'all please play me! My name is MissFLBelle :)

What other apps do you love? I need to download some!

Also- You have to go to sign up for this giveaway! Ashley Lauren is hosting a Kate Spade "Heart of Gold" idiom bangle. I LOVE it! I hope I win!! :)

Have a great Wednesday! It's snowing here in Starkville so hopefully y'all get better weather than us!

Not so Blog-Inspired Lately...But I'm catching up!

I hope everyone is keeping warm/dry/enjoying the warm weather if you're in Florida today! It's raining like crazy in Starkville and the wind is blowing so loud! It is definitely a watch movies under a blanket day and not a get soaked in rain walking around campus day!

I've been having the worst time with blogging lately. I keep up reading all of y'alls blogs and I love them as always :) I just can't for the life of me come up with ideas on what I should blog about...I keep finding excuses like I'm working too late, school is boring to blog about, and January is not the most exciting month and I haven't done anything if y'all have ANY ideas on what you'd like to see me blog about, I'd be glad to hear any suggestions! Also, if any of you have any questions you'd like to ask me, I can do a question-and-answers post :)

This past weekend was so much fun :) I went to Jackson on Friday night with Z (yes...a boy :) lol) and we went to see the movie The Rite..the one with Anthony Hopkins. It was about a young priest who went to Rome to learn how to perform exorcisms. Y' was WEIRD. I think it's because I personally try not to think about evil things like that and I just found parts of it challenging to watch. I would love to hear your opinion on it if you've seen it!
We stayed overnight in Jackson and then went shopping on Saturday!! I just love shopping :) The weather was fabulous and although I didn't get much of anything, I had a lot of fun. On Sunday we went to Tuscaloosa (more shopping ahh!) because I had been looking for a new duvet cover for my bed and they had the one I wanted there! Then Sunday night we went out to eat with the lab group for Erick's birthday. Overall it was a really good weekend.

Now about this new Verizon iPhone...
I have been a BlackBerry devotee for years...but I'm so sick of my phone freezing up and having to restart it like 5 times a day! So I decided I'll give this iPhone a try. I've been debating all week about staying with Verizon and getting their iPhone or switching over to AT&T and getting theirs. The major selling points with me staying with Verizon is I have unlimited data, which I'm allowed to keep with the iPhone, and also I have a $100 credit with Verizon, so I can get the bigger version of the phone for the same price as AT&T's smaller version. I think I'll give this a try and see what happens!
I have hardcore SPRING FEVER! After the amazing weather this weekend I just can't wait to wear sundresses and be tanned! I have been looking for a new bathing suit and I LOVE this one:
It's called strawberry leopard and I think I need it! Now if only my Weight Watchers progress (that seems to be going super slow by the way-anyone else having this problem?) could speed up!

Have a fabulous Tuesday!
