Cute Kid With Puppy Alert!

'Ello, 'ello!
I am in quite the chipper mood because our Best Man is flying in from Virginia, and we are going to meet him in Keystone on Sunday! It almost didn't happen because Will forgot to tell me he was coming, but I guess it was meant to be 'cuz it all worked out. Aunt Amanda even offered to watch her nephew for us. Her kiddos have been begging to have him over for a visit, and they seriously melts my heart. Just look at this face:

In other news, you can find me over here today discussing the "Girl Code" and snaring Prince Charming. I have dubbed myself a talent in the "finding and landing Prince Charming" department, so head over to put your two cents in and/or learn how to snare him if you are single. You know you wanna!

In case you are wondering who I am visiting today, it is this Pretty Lady that I'm about to introduce. Erin lives in New York City, but is as sweet as a small town girl. Don't let that fool you, though...She is sassy and fun, and I am very happy to present her as the FIRST participant in the Perception Series for 2013!

1. That I needed to have it all figured out.
2. That in order to be successful I needed to stick to the corporate world.
3. That I would be engaged at the age of 23.
4. That I couldn't start over in a new field after spending time and money on a degree.
5. That Santa was real.
6. That certain friendships wouldn't ever fizzle out.
7. That I'd be married to Brad Pitt (the short haired version) by now.
8. That I could eat whatever I wanted whenever I wanted without my abs turning to flub.  
1. That I will never, ever have it figured out and that's the beauty of life.
2. That in order to remain happy I needed to get the heck out of the corporate world.
3. That I wouldn't at all want to be engaged at the age of 23.
4. That my degree was most likely the biggest waste of two and a half years of my life.
5. That Santa is instead, family, friends, food, festive outfits, and fun holiday decorations.
6. That certain friendships must be fizzled out if they are fake.
7. That he's not married yet and I still have a chance (that is if his hair is still short).
8. That I might have to incorporate some core workouts into my puppy chow eating capabilities.  
1. A prissy little pushover.
2. A girl that looks five years younger than she really is.
3. A stuck-up "too cool for school" bitch because I don't talk to them.
4. An extremely and annoyingly stubborn individual.
5. Ridiculously picky in all aspects of life.  
1. That I'm no dummy and will easily stand up for myself in any situation.
2. That when I turn 50 I will greatly appreciate all of the "You look like a 12 year old" jokes.
3. That I'm actually just extremely shy around people that I don't know.
4. That they'll need to help my future husband out in this aspect.
5. That I believe life is too short not to be and this will probably never, ever change.  
1. It's a hobby that a thoroughly enjoy.
2. Of the amazing support and encouragement I get from all of my readers.
3. It allows me to have some sort of creative outflow.
4. I get an ab workout while reading some hilarious bloggers' posts.
5. It provides a crap ton of inspiration and advice.
6. I enjoy stalking other people's lives.
7. I would have probably gotten a dog by now if it wasn't for all the puppy pictures I see daily.
8. I need new crock pot recipes.
9. Of the new friends I've acquired through the experience.
10. I couldn't imagine not having this wonderful world in my life everyday.

Oh boy can I relate to the "You look like a 12 year old" jokes. I've actually started telling bartenders that I'm under age when they give me crap about drinking water, and they legit believe me. Sorry to tell ya, but even at 27 it still happens. At least we've tapped in to the Fountain Of Youth.

Well, what are y'all still doing here?
Go say hi!

I still get the "you look 12" jokes and I'm nearly 32. This past weekend I got id'd for alcohol (you have to be 18 to buy here but you get id'd if you look under 25) and someone else was shocked when I told him my age as he thought I was 24. It used to annoy me but now I just find it funny, as Erin said we'll appreciate it when we're 50.
Have a great weekend in Keystone.

I am with her! I am SO glad I got out of the corporate world. A desk job just isn't for me!

Also, I was mistaken for a 15 year old again this weekend. It happens all the time. And honestly, I love it. 'Cause someday I will be 50 and I will look like I'm 25 still (at least that's my plan, haha)! :)

Cece said...

Nicole said...

I'm extremely shy around people I don't know too and get accused of being stuck up :)
