pictures aren't loading onto my blog... bummer.

umm... is it just me or is anyone else having a hard time with the new picture up-loader? ugh... maybe it's my work computer...

ANYWAY! I just wanted to share something with you that a friend e-mailed me this morning. It's a blog post that you can find here called "The Disease Called Perfection." Honestly, I have been having a really crummy week so far {i know, a little dramatic considering it's only Tuesday} and I was sitting here feeling sorry for myself when I read this -- Totally. Changed. My. Perspective. Seriously!

I hate how it's always super easy to list things that you'd like to change about yourself and then when it comes to thinking of things you like... well... that's a whole different story. I've been pretty hard on myself lately, especially my body, and I think a lightbulb just went off and I realized that life is too short and I have it too good to spend the majority of my time picking on myself.

On a different note, this weekend I was watching a TV Show about Alien Encounters. When I was little I used to hope and pray that I would be abducted by an alien and once I even went to school and pretended that a scar I had on my stomach was proof that I had been experimented on. Wow, I was a creepy kid. But for that day -- I was popular! Hah.. Anyway, last night I was laying in bed thinking about how badly I wanted that to happen and realized that being abducted and experimented on isn't really that cool, it's actually pretty damn scary and probably hurts really bad {one lady claims they shoved a 5 inch pole into her BELLY BUTTON!} Bottom line: I had alien nightmares last night. Not cool because now I am super tired at work.


  1. Yay for being a slight mental case as a child!
    Funny to look back on these things and wonder how your brain worked.

  2. That alien abduction fantasy did seem a bit crazy, but heeeeey...you were just an incredibly creative kid! :) Sorry about your week. I hope it gets better! As for the new picture uploader on here? I'm not a big fan of it either. I'm at least glad that you found something to cheer you up a bit though.

    Plus...this might help a little more. Come by my blog and join in on the giveaway I'm hosting for a $50 gift certificate to Anthropologie! :)


  3. I'm glad the post helped! I also love this page http://www.danoah.com/p/what-is-ugly-girl.html because we can ALL be ugly girls!

    I can't wait for our girls weekend. Apple picking, apple cider, apple beer, Ingrid Michaelson, and wine! It's all that's been on my mind lately.....

    You are beautiful - inside & out. Dontcha ever forget it. xo

    Ooo boy, I have a good alien story for you! (just like the goat man!)

  4. ha ha ha i was a creative child to say the least, my over active imagination often got the best of me.

    D -- you always cheer me up :) i can't wait to celebrate fall with you! ughhh i talk about it every single day!
