Who wants to play a game? And win a prize!!!?


Two of my favorite things to do on a rainy day are watching movies and playing games! {And I can quote with the best of them folks}

Side note: It’s not raining here. But who the hell cares...I am always up for a break and this combines my two favorite activities.

So who wants to take a rain {or non-rain} break and play with me??

 
The name of the game is:
What Movie is That Quote From??
 

I have been known to be a stickler for the rules {some have used the word natzi even} – so here are the rules!

1.)    Read the movie quotes and send me an email with the answer of what movie you think it is from. {NO CHEATING AND USING GOOGLE – Scout’s honor code ladies}

2.)    You get one point for every correct answer. {You get an extra point if you can tell me who said it!}

3.)    On Thursday at noon I will close the game and tally the answers. The winner will be announced in Thursday’s post.

Oh yeah – if you have a game, you have to have a winner and if you have a winner, you have to have a prize….so the person with the most points will receive a $20 gift card to my favorite place to buy DVDs. {In case of a tie, a tie breaker will be emailed to those who are tied}
 
{does the doggie come with?? ugh that face kills me!}
 

So here are some of my all time favorite movie quotes!
 
1. {This might look familiar from this post} "It's got to be that can't-eat, can't-sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, World Series kinda stuff."
 
2. "No. Creme brulee can never be Jell-O. YOU could never be Jell-O."
 
3. "Well that's what we do, we fight...You tell me when I am being an arrogant son of a bitch and I tell you when you are a pain in the ass. Which are you, 99% of the ime, I'm not afraid to hurt your feelings. You have like a 2 second rebound rate, then you're back doing the next pain-in-the-ass thing."
 
4. "I'd rather fight with you than make love with anyone else."
 
5. "The odd thing about this form of communication is that you're more likely to talk about nothing than something. But I just want to say that all this nothing has meant more to me than so many somethings."
 
6. {When asked why she only eats the brown ones, she responds with this} "Because someone once said that they have less artificial coloring because chocolate's already brown. And it kind of stayed with me."
 
7. "If you are gonna name my...member, you have to name it something hyper masucline. Something like Spike, or Butch, or Krull the Warrior King!"
 
8. "That was yesterday. Today you're just some bitch who broke my heart and cut up my mother's wedding dress."
 
9. "Here's looking at you kid."
 
10. "I did take myself out of the game. If you stop betting, you never have to lose."
 
11. "You should be kissed every day, every hour, every minute."
 
12. "The only reason I ain't signing is cause you've turned into some hoity-toity Yankee bitch, and I'd like nothing better right now than to piss you off."
 
 

Don’t forget – you have to email your answers so nobody can steal them. My email is
L_tampir {at} yahoo {dot} com
Also don't forget - NO CHEATING!! CHEATERS SUCK!
 
Also also don't forget - If you have a blog, make sure to give me the link in your email! I love new blog friends!
 

P.S. – Did I forget some of your favorite movie quotes? If so, tell me them in your email!

I Believe In...Link Ups!

So here goes...

I believe in love - the can't eat, can't sleep, reach for the stars, over the fence, world series kind of stuff

I believe in quoting movies like it's my job 

I believe in choosing your battles, with yourself and others; I also believe this is easier said than done

I believe in being comfortable in your own skin - with and without your clothes on ;)

I believe in growing up and realizing that your mom is one of your best friends

I believe in spending money from the savings account - on important things, like vacations

I believe in wet noses, soft ears and snuggly puppy faces - they are the cure for everything


I believe that the disasters of the world {Honey Boo Boo, Jersey Shore, Teen Mom, etc.} were created for my entertainment and just so us 9-5ers can feel better about our mundane lives

I believe that you can't love unconditionally until you have had a broken heart 

I believe in driving with the windows down, listening to country music on the perfect summer day

I believe in drunken nights with your best friends and stories to tell for years

I believe you make your own happiness!

Happy Friday!
Oh yeah - I believe in Erin @ Living in Yellow!

Lunch with Paula Deen

If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen the picture I posted of Miss Southern herself, Paula Deen. {If not, follow me at lpeters27}

That's right folks - Paula {we are on a first name basis} was in Houston for the MetroHouston cooking show this past weekend and me the momma scored some last minute tickets.

A day of sampling from food booths and 2 hours of Paula? I could feel my waistline increasing the second I bought the tickets.

"All I needed y'all was a little bit more buttah"

"Mmmm Michael, that is so good honey"

As if it couldn't get any more exciting than Paula and me - I picked up some goodies at that show that make me wish I was smart enough to have come up with them!

These two gadgets are seriously the coolest things I have ever seen - like cooler than drive through strawberry daquiri. Cooler than automatic flushing toliets. Cooler than Siri. {well she sucks but the idea was cool}

If somebody would have brought these to me in the beginning though, I would have told them to try again. {yeah good thing I am not on Shark Tank}

Speaking of Shark Tank - this first item I am obsessed with is called Rock It 3.0 and it was previous on Shark Tank - I can't really explain it other than to say you can make speakers out of ANYTHING. And by anything I mean a freaking tissue box folks!!

Just watch {and then pick your jaw up} because it is f*#$@%! amazing!

Seriously everone I know is getting one for Christmas whether they like it or not
My second obsession - spray coffee
{yes you read that correctly}

A can of spray coffee that I can carry around in my purse? What? Don't worry I didn't believe it until I watched in person and tasted it!

via
 
No joke - you spray this in the bottom of your glass, add milk and stir. See ya later Starbucks and your ridiculous prices; This girl just bought 35 cups of iced coffee for less than .30 a glass!

Yep - Inventi Coffee is only $10 for the whole can and it doesn't have to be refridgerated and they are coming out with flavored ones in January and it only has 5 calories per serving and it's not full of crazy ingredients you have never heard of and it's the 5 best coffee beans from around the world in ONE CAN.

Phew! I need a glass right now just talking about it!

Seriously I just wish I could have come up with something half as genius as these things. Props to these folks for sticking with it and making their dreams a reality!

No they did not pay me or send me free things to say this - I was completely sucked in on my own accord lol

How was your weekend? Did you find any items worth ranting over???

Thanks and Gig 'Em

Ahhh! My life has been absolutely turned upside down these last two weeks.

Everyone has this excuse when they neglect their children right? and by child, I mean blog of course - I would never neglect an actual child - unless my husband counts lol

Anywho - I wanted to spend a few minutes gushing about my school pride as it seems to be that time of year - what with all the football games and tailgates resuming.

If you do not bleed maroon or more specifically if you bleed burnt orange {ahem} - fair warning on this here Aggie post



This past weekend I made that all too familiar drive to my 2nd home - good ole College Station, TX {My Best Friend's Wedding anyone? anyone?}

It was my Aggies season opener in our brand spankin new conference, the SEC  and not considering the minor situation of losing the game - my boys and my town did not disappoint!

I know what you non-Aggies are thinking - "Wow, she was definitely brainwashed and is now part of the Texas A&M cult" - yeah, yeah, yeah I have heard it before and here is my answer...

If you attend a major university, especially in the south, especially in Texas - you get sucked into the "cult" of that school's traditions, culture, people and atmosphere.

And if you don't then you are wasting your money - that is part the college experience - be proud of your school and what it represents!

The atmosphere in College Station and Kyle Field is something you have to experience to understand - we have a saying at A&M and it describes our "cult" better than I can

Amen

{Stepping off the soap box now} Back to this weekend - here are my favorite parts of Aggie football game days

Tent Sales
 Just a few choices! Don't worry I got 4 new ones :)

Don't worry the hubby got one too - needless to say - he loved it

Check out this little nugget of an idea I found at the tent sale! Genius I tell you!

Seriously if you ever need anything with the Aggie logo enblazened on it - this is the place to get it. T-shirts, koozies, dog collars, shorts, hoodies, dominoes - you know the essentials.

All for college student prices - AKA cheap

I might have picked up new shirts and accessories for every member of my household included Murph dog. {bandana pics to come}


The Fightin' Texas Aggie Band
{history lesson: the Corp of Cadets are a staple at Texas A&M - more importantly a staple at Aggie football games - best.band.in.town}

Proof {old video, but still amazing}
Just watching this makes me smile 

me and my not so baby sister {too damn grown up}


Taking pictures in front of Kyle Field - along with 80,000 of my closest friends

 There she is - home of the 12th Man

Hey close friends! {except the hottie in the background with his hand on his hip}

Just driving through town and seeing the school spirit - especially on the munckins!
my super stinkin' cute 2nd cousins

game day flags lining University Blvd.

Another proud Aggie showing his true colors!

Representing even in his sleep - I like it!




Point is - I freaking love my school - always will! 

Thanks and Gig 'Em
Lindsey

Oh yeah and the actual football game is fun too!! 84,000 screaming fans - what's not to love right!?

Babies, houses and puppies oh my!

Oh - what have I been up to you ask?

You know - the usual - buying a house, getting pregnant, getting a new puppy and buying a new car.


HA! Seriously? None of those things - but here are few things slightly less exciting that I am not lying about doing

Role Playing:
{don't be naughty lol}

The World Trade Soiree that my job hosts every year is the place to be and be seen! This year's theme was Luck Be Houston - think Vegas and Audrey Hepburn/Frank Sinatra/Marilyn Monroe. {It's also an excuse to get all gussied up!} 

See that little lady in the 2nd picture on the 2nd row? You might recognize her as Miss Tess from A Modern Suburbanite's Life! Yep, I get to see that shining face everyday at work - here is what we do.


Napping with my baby:
there are no words folks


Eating like I don't have an inner tube on my stomach to lose:


 Houston Restaurant Weeks - if you live in Houston, look it up! Best way to try the fancy shmancy restaurants on a budget!

Seriously? Salted caramel and chocolate fudge macaroons? Kill me now


Mani/Pedis with the Sister-in-Law:
China Glaze: Dance Baby = obsessed! P.S. - I just ordered it on Amazon for $5 {including shipping} WHAT?


Retail Therapy:
I caved - they were calling me. by name. - I am now the proud owner of a bouncing baby May Book! 

I would seriously live inside this store if that wouldn't lead to my arrest and my husband's irritation


Sunbathed:
topless. NOT - gag me
Happy Labor Day Weekend!! Best friends a girl could get and an amazing weekend!

Things I did NOT do:
1. Eat healthy
2. Save money
3. Work on my blog
4. Work on my website
5. Clean my house
F.A.I.L

Point is - I am back!! And I have some exciting posts coming up! 

Good night moon. Good night stars. Good night blog.
