The Cuteness!

I'm fairly certain that most of you have heard LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It" by now (unless you've been living under a rock). Well, this morning on GMA, they showed this little gem and I think it is precious!

It stars this little cutie, aka Elmo. Take a listen/watch.

Maybe, I'm just a sucker for the Muppets (especially after their movie revival in November) and their Sesame Street cousins, but I think this is beyond precious. What did you think?

YouTube Trends... Tuesday

This won't be a regular post, but with all the T's, I just couldn't help it. By now I'm sure you've all seen the "Shit (blank) Says" videos on YouTube floating around Twitter and FB. These are my favorites.

"Don't worry, they're BYX guys."

And the one that started it all...

What are your favorite videos in this trend?

Music Monday

I love Katy Perry.

This was perfection on Glee last week.

Only heard this one a few times but I love it already!

Dog Vader

I think we're all familiar with last year's VW Super Bowl commercial with the little boy dressed as Darth Vader, right? Super adorbs. This year they have a trailer of sorts for their big Super Bowl commercial which is just as presh. Yes I have used two abrevs (now three) in this short of a post. If you haven't seen this floating around Facebook or Twitter or anywhere else on the internet, here you go.

Nappy wasn't such a fan. He felt the need to add his own bark, but what do you think? I think it's hilarious.

It's OK Thursday...

I'm linking up for another It's OK Thursday, because sometimes we all need a little reassurance that "It's OK..."

Its Ok Thursdays

It's OK...

To wish Nappy would learn to sleep in already.

To think (and wish) it is Friday already.

To blame a bad night's sleep on Nappy.

To miss Fort Worth, especially after I was just there.

To think Paula Deen is crazy for making donut hamburgers. I mean WHO DOES THAT?

To not understand the appeal of Modern Family and be annoyed at the hype.

See above, insert Revenge.

To be annoyed that there are SIX shows that come on Tuesdays and only ONE on Wednesdays that I like.

To want April 1st to get here ASAP so Game of Thrones can start back up.

What are you telling yourself "It's OK..." this week?

Oh, How Pinteresting!

Recipes I need to have tried.... YESTERDAY. These all look SO yummy and I've been drooling over some of them for months!


Here's we go!

Don't these look SO yummy? What have you pinned that you're dying to make?

PS - I don't usually talk politics on my blog, but PLEASE don't forget to check out all the SOPA stuff online today and sign a petition or tweet/e-mail your representative to tell them SOPA/PIPA is no bueno. Bloggers should take note of this especially, I feel like since it could lead to censorship. Protect your 1st Amendment rights.

Dance Moms Drinking Game

Now this is TOTALLY tongue in cheek, but a couple of my friends (Halei and Tracy) love love LOVE Dance Moms. Having all danced ourselves, we love watching these talented little girls far outdo us at our best. Not to mention their moms and teachers are INSANE and butt heads like crazy. Well season 2 started last week and we decided there probably needs to be a drinking game to go along with it.

*It should be noted that this is completely fake, otherwise you might die from alcohol poisoning.*

Take a shot anytime Abby says "Everyone's replaceable."
Finish your drink anytime Cathy says her dancers are better than Abby's.
Finish your drink anytime Maddie wins a title or finishes ahead of Chloe.
Take a shot anytime a mom confronts Abby.
Take a shot anytime Melissa sucks up to Abby.
Finish your drink anytime a mom gets mad at Melissa (or Jill because that's where I see this season going).
Take a shot anytime anyone cries.
Take a shot anytime Abby yells at an individual girl.

These are TOTALLY FAKE. DO NOT attempt this or you will end up VERY sick (if not dead). I just thought it would be funny to make a list of everything you could do while watching Dance Moms because the show is so outrageous. You should check it out at 8 (central) on Lifetime. IT's the only reason I watch Lifetime.

Music Monday

It's a little later than usual. My step-sister and I went to Fort Worth to get her some new pointe shoes and have lunch with some friends! It was a good, but tiring day. I'm beyond ready to take a nice, hot bath and go to bed.

What songs are you loving right now?

Valentine's Swap

I'm participating in my first swap! Caroline and Alissa are hosting a Valentine's Swap and I'm so excited to meet a new blogger from this! I'm really looking to grow my blog this year and I think this will be a fun way to do just that. It's a neat way to meet someone else in the blog-i-verse and get some goodies via snail mail!

Since I have spent a year and two weeks (or probably a little more than that, honestly) at camp, away from phones and e-mail, I have come to truly LOVE snail mail. Nothing is more exciting than getting a package or even a fun letter from a friend in the mail. From the mail man/lady.

I'm really looking forward to getting some sweet goodies for my new blogging friend and to meet someone new. If you're interested, head over to Caroline's or Alissa's blog(s) (linked above) and sign up! But do it quick, you only have a few days!


What are you waiting for? Go now!

Oh, How Pinteresting!

It's Wednesday, again! Time really flies when you've got your favorite link up once a week! And again like Music Monday,I'll be doing a Disney themed post. I know you're excited.

I'm loving the new button Michelle got with her new blog design!

The best part is I'm a Taurus and that's where they put Belle, my favorite Princess!

How cute would these be framed in a kids' room? Or in my room? hahaha

What are some of your favorite Disney pins?

Tuesday, January 10, 2012


A couple of weeks ago, I decided that 2012 would be the year I made my little blog a Facebook page to promote it that way and stop annoying people who don't read it (but they should, right?). So I did.

Welcome to GrownUpLand

Promote Your Page Too

So if you're one of the faithful few that read, feel free to like my blog's FB page! I'd love it if you did! One of my 101 in 1001 is to gain more followers for my blog, so help a girl out! :) Also, check out my Instagram 365 (+1) over in my side bar. And if you feel so inclined, feel free to join me.

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Music Monday

I realized last night that I never did a Music Monday last week! To be fair, Nappy was sick last week, so I was probably highly distracted by his tummy problems. Anyway, I thought this week I'd do some Disney favorites in honor of Beauty and the Beast hitting theaters in 3D this weekend!

I know Jordin Sparks redid this a few years ago, but if they don't play the Celine version during the credits, I will be very upset. Nothing should be changed except for the fact that it's 3D. Don't screw this up, Disney.

One of the best Disney songs ever. I mean, really, it's awesome.

Hercules probably has the best overall soundtrack of Disney animated movies...

Love love love.

And since B&tB is coming out this weekend, I thought I'd add another song from it. One of my all time favorite Disney songs! Should be pretty kick a-- in 3D, right?

What are your favorite Disney songs?

Eff, Marry, Kill


FINALLY! Another Eff, Marry, Kill link up! I loved this back in November and I've been anxiously waiting for another one! This time I've chosen a few of the Glee boys...

Finn Hudson, Noah Puckerman, and Blaine Anderson. For a minute now, let's just forget these characters' current love interests and preferences and go on looks alone. And personality.

Eff: Puck. Who can resist his abs? I mean, come on!
Marry: Blaine. I. Love. Blaine. He is so cute and sweet! I love that he transferred to McKinley, but I really miss that Dalton Academy blazer. (Darren Criss is just hot in real life, too. Let's be honest.)
Kill: Finn. I go in and out of liking Finn. He gets kind of dopey from time to time and for this reason I'd off him.

Who would you eff, marry, and kill from Glee?
