peer pressure, peer pressure. i give in to peer pressure.

i have this friend who is constantly telling me i blog in code.
wiiknd lists are complete gibberish
and nothing i ever say makes any sense.
i'm doing this for her.
so for one month she can understand what the crap i'm saying.
here's to being "real."


your life in 250 words [or 266. whatever.]

1989. 
i was named after a mexican baby.
my mom ironed my baby clothes
and changed my outfit multiple times a day.

1990 = sister.
1991 = brother.
1993 = sister.
my parents were machines.

my most dramatic role was in the 1994 
home video of cinderella.
i freaked when mom forgot about the fairy godmother.

september 1998, we had the house fire.

i always wanted to be famous.
i spent afternoons day-dreaming in front of my mirror.
posing for red carpet events, how i'd smile in the opening credits for my sitcom,
dating jgl at every age.

my teenage years were awkward to some degree.
i found myself in creative writing and theatre.
my sister was my best friend.

i had my first kiss at 19.
i had my last kiss at 22.
in those few years, i was able to lock lips with
enough boys to give me experience without making me feel like a whore.
i never hit double digits.

college was filled with dance parties, rockband
and mid-semester breakdowns.
i had an obsession with nos and yoo-hoo
which led to us creating towers with the empty cans.
we stole the seasoning salt from red robin.
for the first time in my life, 
i was "cool."

enter: cory. 
he thought i hated him.
i thought he hated me.
we were destined from the beginning. 
when we got engaged, 
he wore a suit and i looked like a polygamist.

which brings us to now.
i am a proudly unemployed college graduate.
i'm basically a married, wannabe-spinster-sterotype
who is obsessed with cross-stitching
and internet cats.

I understood everything, everything.

You're welcome for the peer pressure, one day you'll look back and love that you did this.

haha I loved this. And I will forever be grateful to you for admitting that you got your first kiss at 19, because now I don't feel all alone! Well actually I STILL haven't received my first kiss (I suck I know) so I guess now the pressure's on before I turn 20. haha, but really though I think this is one of my favorite posts of yours so far and all your posts are amazing so that's saying something.

okay, i love you. i just, i just love you. also the best moment i had in high school was after prom when my best guy friend, his lady, and i all got yoohoos from a gas station and drank them in the parking lot. so i am basically asking for your other hand in marriage, as i think we might be soulmates. just think about it.

You are cool. Don't forget it.

Let's go to Red Robin. Shay can come, too.

The worst part about the season salt from Red Robin was how quickly it turned into a solid rock. Which meant we had to steal more.

I love this.
