Oh, How Pinteresting!

I'm back for Oh, How Pinteresting! It's been a few weeks and I've missed it so, but like I posted the other day, sometimes I get home from work and just want nothing to do with the computer... I know, I never thought it would happen to me either. But, it's a real thing, guys.

Happy 2 Years, Little Blog!!!

It's my blog's 2 birthday/blogiversary! I totally intended to do a giveaway for this momentous occasion, but time got away from me! But I still want to do a giveaway, so maybe in a few weeks?


Anyway, in honor of my blogiversary (since I didn't get my stuff together in time to do a giveaway), I want YOU to ask me any question you can think of (within reason, nothing too insanely personal)! I'll answer all of the questions personally and then post a few of my favorites here!

What are you waiting for? Ask some questions!

Working Girl

So I've been a little MIA on here and it's because I got a little thing called a job (and I have crazy ridiculous allergies right now). It's only part time and it's still free-lance work, but I actually get up and get dressed and go to an office and interact with people! And I got it because people ask me how the job search is going and I tell them; so kids, sometimes it PAYS (literally) to complain (you're not really complaining though if people ask and are interested in your life and that part of your life is an annoying job search).

Anyway, when I get home, most of the time I don't want to look at a computer screen any longer than I already did at work. Like on Monday when all I did was type letters, an outline, and work on the website. I felt like I was in college making ads for one of my favorite classes. You just get to a point when you have to take a step back and not think about it any more or look at anything related to it.

I am also suffering from some CRAZY allergies, like I said earlier. Benadryl, Sudafed, and now Claritin are my BFFs. Any other allergy remedies you know of? I'll be glad to try any other medicine or even home remedies. My allergies are so bad that sometimes my lips itch. It's the weirdest thing ever.

I miss blogging, honestly (not that I've been gone THAT long), but I just feel so normal and boring and just don't have much to say. I'm planning on doing The Vintage Apple's Oh How Pinteresting link up next week because I haven't done it in a few weeks. And soon I'll review April from my Photo 365 (+1) on Instagram. Isn't it insane how fast April has gone?! It's already the 20th!

Happy Friday! I hope you have a great weekend!

I found a really fun link up for today on The Vintage Apple!

A Mommas Desires and Pacifiers

I'm linking up with A Momma's Desires and Pacifiers for this fun little link up! You should join in, too.

Anne Hathaway - I've been getting told I look like Anne since Princess Diaries came out 10+ years ago. Especially when we were in our awkward stages (Mia Thermopolis, not Anne, I'm not sure SHE had one). Here's a comparision (Fun Fact: this picture of me was taken at my grandmother's after my dad and step-mom got married just hours before I saw Princess Diaries in theaters.)

I heard it so much, I decided to get bangs like Anne in The Devil Wears Prada. I was adorbs.

Liv Tyler - Every once in a while, I hear this one. It's very rare, but it happens and I totes see it. Junior year of high school, I had a dress for a formal I called my Liv Tyler dress because I felt like I looked like her on the red carpet.

Zooey Deschanel - This is a new one now that New Girl is out and I totally embrace it because Zooey is soooo adorkable and I want to be her. If I still had bangs, we'd totes be twins. She makes me want my bangs back, but I've made so much progress in growing them out that I can't turn back. (Note: growing out my bangs is a hellish process and I'm not sure why because the rest of my hair grows fast.)

Who is/are your doppleganger(s)?

The Best Friends...

The best friends are the ones that you can go a long time without seeing and when you seen them, it feels like no time has passed.

Tyler isn't too far away from Fort Worth, but with the pup, I don't get there as much as I'd like these days. Not to mention gas is ridiculously expensive these days. But this weekend some of the Fort Worthians had a big surprise party for one of our friends from the chicago area who went back up there for PT school. He's staying in the Fort for a week and a half before some more of his classes start up. I was only there for about 16-ish hours, maybe, but it was a blast.

Bry and Trevor before their trip to the airport

Texas-shaped cake, I seriously need a Texas cake pan

Clay and his Texas cake

Do you have friends you can go a long time without seeing and when you do finally see them it's like no time has passed? I love it!

Jenna Marbles, Genius.

I don't know if you're familiar with Jenna Marbles, but everyone should be. I want to be her best friend so bad. Especially after this:

This was/is/will be my life.

Do you love Jenna Marbles, too? What's your favorite video of her's?

Oh, How Pinteresting!

I'm back for another Oh, How Pinteresting! I love linking up with Michelle at the Vintage Apple every Wednesday!

I've recently decided I have Celiac Disease (thanks to my mom, WebMD, and this website) and need to try a gluten free diet, so I've been pinning a few g-free things on Pinterest to try... one day.

And devlied eggs brings me to my favorite holiday: Easter!

Have you or has anyone you know gone gluten free? Is there a place you love to get recipes from? Is there a restaurant with a great g-free menu? AND are you as excited for Easter as I am? My step-sisters and I dye eggs every year and I think tonight is the night!

Glee Gets It Right... Again!

Oh my gosh. I am so obsessed with Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know," it's insane. Ob. Sessed. It's a song I think we can all relate to whether it be a friendship gone wrong or a romantic relationship. So naturally when I saw that Glee was doing their on rendition, I was really excited.

When Entertainment Weekly tweeted that they had the full performance and I saw it was my lover, Darren Criss as Blaine, I was ecstatic.

Now to wait the next 7 days out for the new episodes of Glee to start. This hiatus has been painful since that very emotional episode in February.

What do you think? Do you love the Gotye song? How do you think Blaine handled it?
