2012.......Cheers To A New Year!!!

As I sit back and reflect on 2011, I realized a lot of things. 

I realized that change is not always bad.  In the past, I was one who went with change, though I did not totally embrace it. I was always one who envied the people who could live in different parts of the world and dreamed of having the guts to do the same although I knew I would never leave Greenville.....or so I thought.  In August I moved from the place that was home to me since birth!!  SCARY!!!!  I have to admit I cried from the time I pulled out of the driveway until halfway to Columbia, but in the end, this has been one of the best decisions we ever made!  Leaving behind friends and family was the worst, but at the end of the day they are only about an hour and a half away.  :)

Hard work pays off.  Yes, I had realized this in the past, but my new job has reaffirmed this 110 times over.  I have a job that I absolutely love and wouldn't trade for the world, thus I do not mind busting my butt.  Working hard does equal playing hard.

Decorating/Painting a house is FUN!  I said it!!!  I will never forget the days of my parents taking my sister and I to Home Depot and Lowes and us being in sheer misery, but those days are far, far behind me.  I love going to these places and they love taking my money.  ;)

Hosting a holiday is wonderful.  This year, we hosted Thanksgiving and I could not have been more excited!!!!  I looked forward to waking up early and cooking and having family to our house.  Believe it or not, my cooking was very good and that even included my homemade pies! 

Clemson Football can win!!  This was a great season for the Tigers and after being a fan since being able to walk, nothing could have made me happier.  ACC Champs baby!!!!

There are many more things I have realized this year, but these are just the beginning!!  I have made some New Year's Promises (not resolutions).  I will share these later this week, as I have some work to do!!  It feels so good to blog again!

10 Times You Need Your Pageant Friends........

Ok, so by now all of you know that I LOVE my pageant peeps!!!  I also love my other friends as well (I'm not leaving ya'll out!).  However, I find that sometimes you just need your pageant friends around! 

I cannot take credit for coming up with the title of this post, as I stole it from yet another page in a Glamour magazine.  (their title was "10 times you still need your mom")  I just made it my own!  :)  So here we go!

10 Times You Need Your Pageant Friends:

1.  When you are watching Miss America/Miss USA with non-pageant friends and as you say things like "Oh no, she did not just pony kick" or "Gosh, she's such a patty" they look at you as if you have lost your ever loving mind.

2.  When the question "Rhinestones or no rhinestones?" arises.

3.  When you walk into an event/party/get together and you are waaaaaaaay overdressed.  (you know they'd be just as overdressed as you)

4.  When you want to go shop at Cache

5.  If you need to confirm that you don't have on too much makeup or hairspray..........Is there such a thing?!?!

6.  When you need anything taped, tucked or glued.

7.  When you are contemplating which business head shot to use for work.

8.  When you feel the need to bust out all of you different "walks."  You know they know the difference between your swimsuit walk and evening gown walk.....duh.

9.  When someone ask you what Miss USA does for talent.  Please sit down, we must teach you the difference!!

10.  When someone calls you a "has been."  They can totally feel your pain...........

What is wrong with these people?!?!?!

I have two words for all of you................The Bachelorette.  If you are one of the unfortunate people who are not tuning in to watch this fiasco of a show, then turn on your tv PRONTO!!!!! 

Let me first start off by saying that I actually do not regularly tune in to The Bachelor/Bachelorette, but the fact that there is a dentist from Greenville and a Clemson grad caught my attention.  Gotta root for the hometown boys!!!  Whoop Whoop!!! 

Then it all started last Monday night.............

Dear. Heavens. Above.  What is wrong with these guys???  Or more importantly, what is wrong with this girl, Ashley?  She is pretty, young, smart (in dental school), but for some reason she is not dating/engaged/married.  To me, this leaves one explanation...........Girl is crazy.   Which was confirmed in episode two, which I will get to later.  :)

So the arrivals begin.  Ashley is in a bea-utiful gown standing in front of the Bachelorette Mansion (as I like to call it) and here comes the limos with the boys men.  Now, if I am standing there and a limo full of grown men pull up and are yelling and hooting and me, I am going to politely tell the driver to keep going.  This is a huge pet peeve of mine.  Do not, I repeat, do not "cat call" at me!!!!  When guys do this, I want to walk over to their window and ask "how many times have you ACTUALLY picked up a girl by doing that?"  Yeah, their answer would be nada. 

So onto the introductions. 

Ames:  This guy feels his importance.  He will not let us forget that he went to Ivy League schools and is better than 99.9% of us.  There is something I just don't like about him and I will figure it out with time.

Anthony:  A butcher with a thick Jersey accent......eeennnnkkkkkk!  (that's the sound of a buzzer)

Ben:  He hasn't made me not like him yet, which is a good sign.

Ben F:  Wine maker, Josh Groban wanna-be......eeeeeennnnnnnnkkkkkkkkk!

Bentley:  Admitted from the beginning that he was expecting a different girl and is not at all into Ashley.  She knows this, yet begs for him to stay.  Seeing the "Girl is crazy" part in that??  Now he just wants to get her to say he beat all the other guys.  Double eeeeeennnnnnnnnkkkkkkkkkk!

Blake:  Greenville Dentist.  Does this guy ever say a word?!?!?!?  I think not, and this is why I don't dislike him......yet.

Chris D:  do not remember.  whoops!

Chris M:  do not remember.  Maybe I have an issue with Chris'.

Constantine:  blah

Frank:  Oh dear.

J.P.:  Cutie-Pa-Tootie!!!  I really liking me some J.P.  I cannot wait until they get to go on their first date. 

Jeff:  (a.k.a. Batman)  What is this guy thinking?  I would have kicked him off on the first show.  Creepy does not even begin to describe him.  Lurking around in a mask ALL of the time!!  See ya, bye!

Jon:  Another that I do not remember

Lucas:  Seems like a nice guy.  Hasn't done anything to offend me yet.

Matt:  Cute, but quiet.

Michael:  Who??

Mickey:  Tom Hanks look alike.  Maybe Ashley can be his Jenny.

Nick:  His hair annoys me.....really bad.  It seemed that he was trying too hard to impress with his line dance skills.

Rob:  No memory

Ryan M:  Now, this fool got out of the limo with his digital camera in hand.  Proceeded to ask for a pic with Ashley, then looks at her and says "think I can get one with Chris Hansen (the host) inside?"  I would have said "No, you cannot, because you are getting back in that limo and going back to where you came from."

Ryan P:  Handsome....we will keep him around for a while ;)

Stephen:  Hairdresser from CA.  He needs to give himself a haircut. 

Tim:  ehhh

West:  CLEMSON TIGER!!!!!!!!!!!  Need I say more.  As they say "A Clemson Man Needs No Introduction."   But, he has won me over (not just because he is a Tiger).  He is a sweet, southern man, who has been through the loss of a wife early in life.  Bless his heart. 

William:  Now, I loved him at first and may change my mind again.  But he is really starting to annoy me.  You know there is always the guy that wins her heart early on and then he becomes the "arrogant-creepy-let me make lovey eyes at her at all times" guy.  He really thinks that this thing is his.  In the bag, all you other guys head home, put a fork in me I'm done.  I personally just think he is getting his creep on and his time may be limited. 

Ahhhhhhhh, now that I have given my thoughts on the guys, you can all sleep well tonight.  haha!!!  On a side note, let's talk about some of the introductions these guys gave.  They picked her up (literally), gave their best cheesy pick up lines, etc.  I just couldn't do it!!  I would have laughed at half of these guys. 

Anyways, it's been real blogg-ahs!!!!

The Life of Kim

I have been a busy girl these past few weeks and forgot to update my blogg-ahs!!!!  That is just not, sit back and enjoy my friends. 

Since the last time we talked, I had just headed down to Charleston to help my sister find a place to live next year.  We headed down on a Friday afternoon and of course couldn't make it down without the tire pressure light coming on.  We both freaked out, so I called the husband. Surprisingly enough, I know how to put air in a tire, but had no clue as to how much I needed.  He walked me through the process and I have to say I was proud that I handled it like a pro. (there's really not much to it, but whatever, give a girl some credit)  We arrived in Charleston late that night and just hung out until time for bed. 

Saturday morning, we got up and headed off to look at places, but not before I could get my Starbucks fix for the day.  Again, I must remind you that I cannot live without caffeine.  I'm not a happy Kim without it.  The bad part is we were running behind (not good) and my sister can be quite cantankerous at times, therefore I was nice and bought her a lollipop doughnut.  She was happy.  Then we get to the first place......

It was cute and nice, but just not "the place", you know? It had to be just right, kind of like Goldilocks.  Then to the second, which was not good either.  We had some time to kill before headed to the third, so we may a Liberty Tap Room pit stop.  :)  After the pit stop we headed to the third place, which was a TRAIN WRECK!!!!!!  Whew, words cannot describe.  By this point, the sister is getting ill.  We had one last place to look at.............

The last place was the cutest place ever!!!!  Needless to say, she had found the place and is now very happy with her house/apartment hunt!  Now, the hunt for a living space was over, but we had more important things do.  Forever. 21.

We headed downtown (paid $8 for parking) and got to F21.  This is a big store!  I don't want to admit this, because I do not, I repeat, do not, let shopping get the best of me, but this store just about did.  There is stuff everywhere.....shirts, shorts, skirts, rings, earrings, shoes, bras, etc.  And not only is it everywhere, but there is SO MUCH OF IT!!  The good news is that I found my fedora!

We are on our way back when we realize that the sister didn't get to go to Cupcake.  She is obsessed with this place.  They are a bakery that sells over the top cupcakes and boy,  they are good!  So, we turn down a side street to get back on King, because this is something she cannot do without.  King Street is packed, of course, so I tell her to jump out and I will circle around to get her.  During my circling around I saw people heading into a prom (some with hideous dresses) and a bachelorette party who clearly did not know their way around Charleston.  (you DO not go walking past certain points on King Street or you end up in sketchville)  Needless to say, she got her cupcake......all was good in the world.

Sunday morning we got up and headed to Sullivans to eat brunch.  I don't usually brunch, therefore I was torn.  Do I get breakfast?  Do I get lunch?  Help me people!  In the end I decided that I could not go to Sullivans and not have seafood.  Broiled seafood platter it was.  And, it was yummy!!!  I even got to take some banana pudding home!

Side Note:  I have a weird obsession with purchasing t-shirts from places I go, particularly restaurants.  I have some random shirts, and this trip was no exception!  I got me a Sullivans t-shirt!!!  Yay Kim.

That week was full of working and other things, until Thursday, when the husband and I headed to Edisto.  We LOVE Edisto!  I can remember being a child and our parents taking us to Topsail Island Beach and I hated it.  I hated that there was absolutely nothing to do!  However, now that I am getting older wiser, I enjoy a quiet, low key beach.  Our drive down was a good one and we arrived around 5:30pm.  That evening we just sat back and enjoyed not doing a thing!!!

The next morning, we got up, but unfortunately it was raining.  :( I am never one that likes to sit still, so we headed "downtown Edisto" (basically a few shops) with our nephew.  I, of course, was on the search for a t-shirt, but as always, I could not make my mind up on which one.  We grabbed some snow cones, then headed back to the house.  I then enjoyed a nice afternoon of reading and caught a nap!!  That evening we headed to a local restaurant where we had all you can eat oysters.  Dear Heavens Above!!!  I ate until I thought I might A. pass out or B. get sick. 

Saturday was beautiful and sunny and perhaps maybe too sunny!!  We headed to the beach, complete with snacks, chairs and my e-reader. 

Now earlier in the week, the husband and I were in Target purchasing our suntan lotion and I, with my master convincing skills that I possess, talked the husband into us getting the spray on kind.  So now, back to my story........

We get out on the beach and spray each other with the lotion.  I get situated in my chair and begin reading like a champ.  I sat in that chair and did not move from about 11am-2pm.  Oh wasn't that a big mistake on my part!  When I got inside the house, not only did I take note in the fact that I looked like a lobster, but also that the burn was on only 1/2 of my body.  Apparently I was sitting with the sun to my left and since I did not bother to get up and turn, I was 1/2 burnt.  And, ladies and gentlemen, I mean an absolute perfect line down the center of my legs, particularly the left leg.  HOW EMBARRASSING!!!!!!  As you can imagine, I am hitting the tanning bed to even this out.  ;)  I partially blame the spray on sunscreen and I partially blame myself. 

I then was getting board, so I took our neice back to the shops.  She and I went into a store that had the cutest t-shirts!  Jackpot!!!!!  We left with three shirts, which made the trip successful.  Then we headed to the local Piggy Wiggly and got the husband and birthday cake and candles.  I am full believer that one cannot and should not have a birthday without birthday cake.  It's just not right. 

So that evening we partook in some very yummy, yet unhealthy fried oyster/shrimp po boys from a local restaurant.  Ahhhhhhh, so good.   We then got up the next morning and head home. Overall a nice trip away from Greenville.

After a week of shedding skin peeling like a snake, we headed to our sweet T-Bear's house to do some shootin!!  Yeeeee-haw! 

The shootin adventure took place partly because my friend's sister and her boyfriend were in town from up north and she was trying to welcome them to the south in true redneck style and partly because, well, the guys like shooting guns.  (I personally just think it makes them feel macho)  I did, reassure them that we do not shoot guns every Saturday here in the South, I promise.  Anyways, in true southern girl style, I sported my rhinestone sandals......who says shooting can't be fashionable??  (although I didn't shoot at all)  After an afternoon of me catching up with Lar-Lar (I was going to call her "Blue", but didn't want her to de-friend me), which was totally needed considering I had not seen her in about 50 years, we headed to her and K-Poo's house.  (I told you, everyone has a nickname)  We had a fun cookout with everyone, complete with cornhole, where she and I ruled the day for a hot minute and I will still argue that we won.  Of course, later that evening we had an Xbox Kinect dance game dance-off.  There is ALWAYS time for a dance off.  We then started watching the GSP fight, but I fell asleep on the couch.  :( What a fun day it was!!!  I hope that the Northerners enjoyed the South!!!  =)

The next weekend was a fun weekend too!! The husband and I headed to eat with his mom at Blue Ridge Brewery downtown.  This is one of our most favorite places to eat and we were not disappoined this time!!  I had the bbq sandwich, which was delicious!!!!!  After lunch, we headed to some shops then headed back home to watch one of my favorite events of the year.....The Kentucky Derby!  I love the horses, the hats, the dresses, etc.  Going to the derby is a bucketlist item of mine and I can assure you that I will be sporting a hat to die for when I do go!  One thing I did learn this derby was to never pick a horse to win on their name alone.  I picked Comma To The Top (apostrophe, I would guess?) and it finished last.  Ha!  Just my luck!

Well, this post is definitely long enough, so I am calling it a day my dears!!  Until til next time!

"My test of a good novel is dreading to begin the last chapter." ~Thomas Helm

This may come as a surprise to many after reading my rants and raves on this blog, but I read.......a lot.

The types of books I read may come as a shock to you as well.  I have the widest range of subjects that interest me in reading.  I also have these periods of time where I only want to read a specific type or genre of book.  For example, I went through this HUGE dog book phase.  Seriously, every book I read for months were stories about dogs.  Weird. 

Anyways, the real reason I am writing this boring normal post is to share some of my recent books with you.  I am always looking for interesting new books, so I thought why not share with my blogg-ah buddies!! 

I am going to start with the most recent ones:

  • How Good Do You Want To Be
    • This book is written by Nick Saban, who is the head coach for the University of Alabama's football team.  This book was a gift from my father-in-law, who was also a football coach. I bet most of you are thinking that there is no way that I read this book, let alone actually enjoyed it.  However, I loved this book and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to understand what it takes to not only be disciplined in life, but how to connect with a group of individuals and be successful.  This book relates to anyone........your career, your personal life, your goals, etc.  I have to admit that before this book, I was not a Saban fan, but I am a huge fan of his now.  What a true leader this man is.  Plus, I love me some college football, so this played another part into my liking this book.
  • Oogy
    • This is the story of a dog (go figure) that was a bait dog in a dog fighting ring.  He was discovered and during his rehabilitation at a local veterinarian office, he found his forever home.  This book talks about how not only did they rescue Oogy, but in some ways, he rescued them.  It is a tearjerker book, but a heart warming story.  If you love some doggies, you will love this!
  • LA Candy, Sweet Little Lies, and Sugar and Spice
    • Ok, here is where I have my weakness in reading.  I cannot resist the ultimate girlie books that have the predictable plot and will never change my life in any way at all.  But, you know, I am one girlie lady, so these suite me.  :)  These are actually three different books, written by Lauren Conrad (the girl from Laguna Beach and The Hills).  I just put all three titles together because they are a series.  This book is about two friends who move to LA, get randomly picked for a reality TV show and have their lives changed forever.  Sounds awfully familiar if you watched Laguna or The Hills.........but, if you like a good fun read, this is a great one!!
  • A Place of Yes
    • This book is written by Bethenny Frankel who got her start on Martha Stewart's Apprentice.  She then went on to be a member of the Real Housewives of NY and Bethenny Getting Married.  Bethenny is outspoken, blunt and a very successful business woman. (she recently sold her Skinnygirl Cocktail brand for $120 Million) I am a huge fan of hers and watch her show religiously.  In this book, she takes you through the things she overcame in her life, as it was not always $120 million glamorous. It is again, a motivational book of sorts, and I highly suggest it. 
  • Something Borrowed
    • This book by Emily Giffin, is now a movie staring Kate Hudson.  I highly suggest this book to all of the ladies out there!!  I could not put it down and read it in a day and a half.  You probably have already seen the movie previews, so I won't bore you with the details.
  • The Lincoln Lawyer
    • See, this is where my wide realm of subjects come into place.  From dogs, to success, to weddings, to lawyers????  This is a book by Michael Connelly and was actually a movie as well, staring Matthew McConaughey.  I read a good bit of John Grisham books, so I thought I would give this one a try.  I was pleasantly surprised.  It goes through the life of a defense lawyer and one trial he is handling in particular.  There is a surprise element at the end, which I appreciated.  If you like this sort of thing, be sure to read this book.
  • Something Blue
    • You guessed it!  The follow up to Something Borrowed.  I am currently reading this one, but so far, so good!!! 
I have an e-reader, but still like to browse books at book stores or Target. Here are the next books to read on my list:

Until Tuesday
Water for Elephants
The Bond
Heaven is for Real
Decision Points

I hope that those of you who read enjoyed this post!  Those of you who are used to my craziness......have no fear, there will be a Kim post this week!

"British fashion is self confident and fearless. It refuses to bow to commerce, thus generating a constant flow of new ideas whilst drawing in British heritage." ~Alexander McQueen

Wanna guess what this post is about?? 

If you were one who guessed The Royal Wedding, then are correct!  Many of my closest friends are aware with my obsession infatuation with this event, and if you are one of those who is not aware, then you have been warned.  :)  Oh where do I start?!?!?!  I'll just start from the beginning................

So, the first time I watched the wedding (yes, the first) I woke up at 5:45am since I knew the ceremony began at 6am our time. (Sorry I did not share this with you T!) You know, it is amazing to me that I struggle to get out of bed for work every morning, but this morning I was up and ready to go!!  Anyways, I got downstairs, brewed myself a nice pot of coffee and got under the blanket on my couch ready for the festivities.  Not only was my sister up watching with me, but I was also texting back and forth with a friend.  What's wrong with us.....texting at 5:45am?! 

I missed the arrival of William, but was not too concerned about that.....the one I was waiting for was Kate Catherine!!!!!  And at 5:50am, my eyes became glued to that TV as she climbed into the back of the Rolls Royce Phantom that brought her to Westminster Abbey.  (they say she rode in the car because she wanted to arrive to the church as a commoner and leave as a royal in a carriage) As you can imagine, I was dying to see her dress!!!!!!!  Of course I was...I picked the above quote just because it was Alexander McQueen. 

As I expected, she looked like a dream.........modern, yet very royal. The lace was to die for.  The veil was perfect.  Her hair, fabulous.  The dress was everything and more.  Grace Kelly 2011.  Kudos to Kate and the designers at Alexander McQueen. 

Collective Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..........

I then saw Pippas dress and thought it was smashing!!  (had to break out the British term)  But really, what a great dress!!! 

One of the best parts of the wedding was how in love they are.  I wanted to cry when William looked over and told her "You look beautiful."  And when she climbed into the carriage and said "I'm so happy!" So Sweet!  They seem like the perfect pair.  

Now for a tangent:

THE HATS, oh my, THE HATS! (or fascinators as the apparently call them.  thanks, lauren)

I need to hold a Hat/Fascinator party, because I became so in love with this tradition of the British!  If only we got to wear outrageous head pieces as these to weddings here in America!!  I DIE!

Here are a few of my favs from the day:

Do we ever doubt her style? No.  

I LOVED this one!!!!

The Worst of the day:

Do these two not remind you of the stepsisters from Cinderella??  Ugh!

Back to the wedding...........

I was just amazed by the entire ceremony.  How in love they were, how happy they were, the beautiful music, the attire of both William and Kate, the decorations of trees inside the Abbey, the architecture of the Abbey, etc.  It was the definition of the ultimate fairy tale wedding.  With that being said, I would like to let everyone know that I am fully aware that there is more to a marriage than the wedding and that weddings are much more than a fairy tale.  I do, however, fully believe that EVERY woman dreams of the ultimate fairy tale wedding and deserves this as well.  No matter what a woman may tell you, deep down inside they wish they could have their very own "Princess Catherine" wedding.

The other day we were discussing the wedding during a round table for pageant interview prep and a good point was brought up.  Catherine Middleton represents that one woman that was born a commoner in London and not only met, but fell in love with and married a Prince.  It seems that we only see this in movies, but she gives a real life meaning to CAN happen.  :)  I think this is partly why we have become enthralled with this wedding!!

The Kiss........

I have to admit that I left my house early that morning to be sure to make it to the office by 8:25 to witness The Kiss!!  (Thankfully I have an awesome boss that didn't mind us tuning in for a minute or so) How cute was Kate??  The way she said "Wow" when the doors opened was precious!  I mean, can you imagine walking out to all of those people screaming and yelling.....and they all came to see YOU!  Overwhelming!!!

The first kiss was blah....let's be honest.  I was a little disappointed.  But then, they kissed again, this time much better!!!!!  Why did I doubt for a second that they would let me down!  haha!

The cost.........

I am amazed at the cost of the shindig!  Close to $70 Million including security.....whew!!!  But, I think it was worth it......wouldn't you pull out all the stops to become a princess too????

Two things I would have liked to have witnessed:

- Catherine and William dancing/singing to "You're the one that I want" from Grease
- Harry's after party....don't even act like that wasn't a fun time!!

At the end of the day, it was AMAZING and I sure am glad I tuned in.  I also watched it again this Sunday morning as I was clipping my coupons.  I just can't get enough!!!!!!!  I will be blogging a few times this see you soon blogg-ahs!!!

It's Ok.........

This weekend, the husband and I were on our way to Edisto Island and read my newest issue of Glamour magazine during the drive.  You will find in most issues the "It's Ok....." list, which proceeds to go through a list of things that assure women are ok to do, believe or partake in.  I decided that I wanted to start my "It's ok" here goes.  :)
