Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 50

Oh my gosh! Can you believe I have been confessing for 50 weeks now? Crazy.

Speaking of crazy things.... I can't believe I have to give up my background on my blog. I only have a few days left with it. I have grown so attached to the look of my blog and now.... its going to have to change. I have been thinking a lot of what I want it to look like. It will take some getting used to, but maybe the forced change will be a good thing. You will have to be the judge of that.

Last night, I got on facebook to check things out before I went to bed. EVERY SINGLE status update on there from my friends was about the BYU basket ball game. I would have posted on my status that I didn't watch the game and don't care..... but I hardly ever update my status on facebook because I figure if people want to know what is going on with me.... they can read my blog. Plus, I thought people might hate on me if I admitted to not watching the game. Lets be honest, I can't lose friends right now. ha ha. Seriously though.... I think I was buying food at WalMart and I really don't care that I missed "the best BYU basketball game ever". Call me a weirdo if you want.

The time as come. Its quarter end again. Seems to come so quickly. Its amazing the difference. It can go from being really slow to super busy the DAY quarter end officially starts. Yep... I have been busy. Its not a bad thing though.... makes the day go by faster.

Remember how I LOVE my new eyelashes? Well, I loved them so much that I want everyone to know how awesome I think Jenni is and I set up a business blog for her. I called it "A Little Blink of Mink" since they are Mink eyelashes and "Lush Lashes" and "Lovely Lashes" were majorly taken by other people doing eyelash extensions.  Please look at the blog HERE and let me know what you think of it. Next time I see her to do my fills, I am going to get better pictures of her for the blog. Its a start.

I feel like I know a LOT of people that are pregnant right now. I could be wrong.... but it seems like either I know a bunch of people getting married, or a bunch of people that are pregnant and having babies. I know several people that are due in June. Crazy.

This was a big month with goals that I had set for myself. Now the end of the month is here and its crunch time. I am wondering if I am going to be able to make it. I totally got held back with my India room with a couch disaster. Lets just say Jeanna and I spent an hour trying to get the couch I bought to fit down the stairs to the basement and it ended with major disappointment.  I picked out a new one that was not in stock and I don't know when it is going to be delivered. I also don't know when my Saree is going to come in the mail. Any day now.... so my goal of completing that room this month.... well... I might not make it. I also had a goal to finish my India book.... I might still be able to make it if I can finish it this weekend, which means I need many hours to dedicate to it to make it great. I also have a goal to read a book a month.... not sure I am going to make that one either unless I start dedicating my nights to reading. Maybe I set the bar too high for myself. I had a goal to go to the temple once a month so at least I did that one. I am not a complete disappointment.

Everyone is talking about the Bachelor. I have had several people, even my friend Eric, ask me if I have been watching because obviously they have. I have to admit that i have never gotten into the show. I have seen several episodes over the years and I can see why people get hooked, but I just never have. I know this season of the Bachelor is a big deal because #1... there is a girl on there from SLC that I guess nobody likes and #2 because this is Brad (the Bachelor's) 2nd time being the Bachelor because the first time didn't work out.... he couldn't propose. I decided to watch the most recent episode to see what the fuss was about. I totally see how people are sucked into watching.... its ridiculous. That is why the show has been on the air for so long. What I don't understand is why ANYONE would sign up for it. The girls are letting themselves be played on national television. All of the girls fall in love with 1 man while he is falling in love with 6 and letting them all believe that they are special and different from the rest of the girls when in all reality they are not. I don't understand how you can "fall in love" under these circumstances. I really really don't get it. How do you really get to know 1 person when you are dating 9? I just watch the show and I laugh. I could NEVER do it. I would never be able to open myself up to a guy and have to share him with a house full of other girls and watch it. Nope. Its SO wrong.... but maybe its just me.

Oh gosh I am so addicted to the bachelor. Its crazy ridiculous but I'm hooked! :)

I think that most of the girls go on that show for fame... not really for the bachelor. That is my opinion. I don't watch it, i don't have tv. But even if I did have tv- i wouldn't watch that show. Reality tv is dumb.

I HATE the idea of the bachelor and the bachelorette. It is so demeaning and fake and terrible. I watched a season finale once and I almost puked.

I'm not pregnant. And all the people I knew who were just had their babies. But, come on, you live in Utah. Of course you know a thousand people who are getting married or pregnant.

I will mourn your blog's background, but you will probably find another cute one.

I saw the 50 and thought the same thing. Wow.
Whatever you pick for your new blog background will be fun. You'll find something great, I'm sure of it!
I saw the blog and I love it. I love the name. It looks great! Good job.
I feel like a lot of people are having BABIES right now. I swear like (at least) 5 people I know had babies in January.
You're doing great on your goals. I wouldn't stress. And I haven't gottent into the Bachelor either. If I put it on Chuck will leave the room. It's scandalous and fake. I totally agree. Yikes!
