This was a great way to spend an evening, I recommend it to everyone!

My amazing friend Stefanie is getting married in a few weeks so of course this calls for many parties and girlish delights. We've already been to the bridal shower and she got the most hysterical present I've ever seen, a "Rubber Plant":
She also had a headpiece made out of all her bows discarded from beautiful presents (seen below). Jessi, Shelly & I had a great time celebrating our wonderful Stef!
Up next is a bachelorette party that her friend Emily and I are throwing together. There are no pictures yet but I've just finished the invitations and since they took me 4 hours to hand make them all I've decided to share them!
I'm so excited to celebrate my wonderful Stef and her wedding!

Your favorite song.
I don't have a favorite, I have several. 
It's so hard to pick just one! 
But if I had to, HAD TO, pick one I would say my favorite song is 
When You're Gone by Avril Lavigne
And it will probably always be my number one. 
It has such a special place in my heart.

In this past month, what have you learned?
From this? Or in general?
I've learned that Dr. Pepper can solve almost anything.
I've learned that people disappoint you.
I've learned that friends are absolutely priceless.
I've learned that orange and yellow are great colors for nail polish.
I've learned that hugs from kids can turn your day right side up.
I've learned that I have a pretty great life.

A picture of you from last year and now, how have you changed since then?

Well I'm still pale as a ghost. 
I find it much easier to smile now than I did a year ago. 
I'm a little blondie now and I used to have purple in my hair! 
But I think the biggest changes from last year to now have been internal more than external. 
And I'm okay with that.
PS The blonde is brand new. It's still very new to me. What do you think?

Why are you doing this 30 day challenge?
That's easy. I like to write and I like to have things to write about. And I get bored easily :)

Happy Love Day

This is and always has been one of my favorite days of the year. Hearts everywhere. Yummy chocolates. Pretty flowers. Everyone says I love you and hugs. What's not to like about this day? So what if you're single and you don't have a date? There are still plenty of people out there who love you! Today is a day for happiness, for hope, for love! Today is the day to tell someone you love them! Even if they already know it, it's always nice to hear right? Happy Valentine's Day!

Your last 5 facebook status updates.

Crab and Caviar. Yum. I am loved.
It's hard to think, it's hard to breathe sometimes.
Holly and I are like Romeo and Juliet and the office is like the dragon that kept them apart.
Still counts!
You love me but you don't know who I am.

But here's a reminder.

Feb 8, 2011

Nicknames you have and why you have them.
Not too original but I assume I have them because people LOVE me!
*edit* I have to add Suey to the list, my Sarah reminded me of this one, it's just been a long time since I've heard it!

Someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why
This one is silly to me. I love my life. I love being me. 
But if I HAD to pick someone to switch with I'd pick this girl.
20-year-old Sue. 
She had no idea what was coming her way. 
So naive to the anguish and pain that would be in her future. 
Silly little girl.

One More.

I have one more small quote from a song I want to share. 
One of my absolute favorites.
"He told her of his heart
it might be love 
and all of the things he was so scared of."

Another picture of yourself.
I had a dark angel moment.


Feb 4, 2011

In the past year music has taken on a whole new meaning to me. I used to listen to it in the car and when I was running and that was about it. When my world crashed down around me I needed something to hold on to. I needed something to give me a voice when I had none. I needed something to express how I was feeling when I couldn't do it myself. Music came alive for me. Songs I'd never noticed before were jumping out of my iPod and into my brain. I'd hear beautiful lyrics and they'd stay with me for hours after the song was over. I now have several different mixes on my iPod for different moods and occasions. I have a mix for every mood I could possibly experience during a day and several that I never experience. I must be prepared for the unexpected! When a line from a song jumps out at me I write it down, I now have WAY too many lyrics stored away for a rainy day but when I go to delete some of them I can't do it. They're all beautiful. And so for your (hopefully) enjoyment I want to share just a few of the lyrics that have stuck with me, spoken to me and helped me express myself over the last year. 
  • I wanna be with you forever, if tomorrow's not too late. But it's always too late when you got nothing, so you say. You should never let the sun set on tomorrow before the sun rises today.
  • Here we go, this is my confessional. A lost cause, nobody can save my soul. I'm so delusional, with every move I die.
  • Forever can never be long enough for me.
  • He just might make me laugh. But the whole time I'm wishing he was you.
  • I don't mind where you come from as long as you come to me. I don't like illusions, I can't see them clearly.
  • I'd rather hurt than feel nothing at all.
  • I think I'll be brave starting with you but I'll fall away if you tell me to. I'd rather be wrong and hope that I'm right. I can't go on with this all inside. I think I'll be brave and say how I've wanted you.
  • I will walk on water and you will catch me if I fall. I will get lost into your eyes and I'll know everything's alright.
  • I love the way you lie.
  • We can say that forever is more than just a word. 
  • I am small and the world is big. But I'm not afraid of anything.
  • If you asked me if I love him, I'd lie.

Put your iPod on shuffle: first 20 songs that play. (I changed this from 10 because I love music and this is a fun game!)
1 Be Like That, 3 Doors Down (I haven't heard this song in years and it's number one? Funny how that works.)
2 Viva La Vida, Coldplay (Love.)
3 The First Cut Is The Deepest, Sheryl Crow (Off the One Tree Hill soundtrack. So many memories.)
4 American Idiot, Greenday (Remember how many people were offended when this song came out?)
5 Raise Your Glass, P!nk (PARTY song!)
6 So Far Away, StainD (StainD has a special place in my heart.)
7 We R Who We R, Ke$ha (Another fabulous PARTY song!)
8 Don't Tell Me, Avril Lavigne (Avril is my favorite. Always.)
9 My Sundown, Jimmy Eat World (Beautiful. Sad. Love.)
10 In The End, Linkin Park (It wouldn't be complete without a Linkin Park song.)
11 Lose Yourself, Eminem (I love this song. It takes me back to 6am practice and wanting to give up but fighting through it for something amazing.)
12 Ice Ice Tik Tok, Ke$ha vs. Vanilla Ice (This song cracks me up.)
13 We're So Far Away, Mae (New Jersey memories.)
14 Hurt Feelings, Flight of the Conchords (Absolutely love them!)
15 Single Ladies, Beyonce (PUT YOUR HANDS UP!)
16 Don't Let Me Fall, B.o.B (An unconventional love song.)
17 Oops... I Did It Again!, Britney Spears (I grew up with her. I will always love her.)
18 Only The Good Die Young, Glee Cast (Can you believe it took this long for a Glee song to pop up? I can't.)
19 I'm Like A Lawyer With The Way I'm Always Trying To Get You Off, Fall Out Boy (This might be the best song title ever. It has nothing to do with the song.)
20 Storm, Lifehouse (One of my all time favorite songs. Good thing I decided to post 20 songs instead of 10!) 
So of the 1487 songs I currently have on my iPhone these are the first 20 on shuffle. I think it gives a pretty accurate overview of my music. I hope you enjoyed this because I sure did. Shuffle is the best. Happy listening!

A letter to someone.

Dear Mommy,
You are THE BEST mom ever. Seriously. I am so lucky to have you in my life. When my world falls apart you are there to pick up the pieces. When one of your children needs you there's not even a moment of hesitation. You always want what's best for us and even though sometimes I may disagree with you over what's best I know that you always have my wellbeing in mind. When I'm happy you laugh with me. When I'm sad you let me cry. When I just can't handle life you handle it for me. You listen to the things I say and share your life with me, too. I know that every joy and pain I feel you feel too. I am so grateful that you are my mother. I must have won some kind of lottery to be your baby. I love you always.
Love Suzy
