Depression. (More like mild sadness)

Leaving Tennessee every time I visit gives me a little bout of depression.

We are in Arkansas now. Don't get me wrong, it's great to see the family that lives here, but I feel like my heart is always back in Nashville. There's nothing I love more than staying with my sister and brother-in-law, even through all their barfy newlywed-ness.

(Aren't they cute?) :)

They are the funniest people I know, and some of the greatest as well.
There's nothing I can think of better than staying with them. 2010 was actually a great year as far as going to Tennessee, with a whopping 3 times. That's definitely a record. 2 is the norm.

Let's keep our fingers crossed though, that my parents will let me come down for spring break. :D

In other news... I will be ringing in the new year at a youth group lock-in. My parents are dropping me off straight after our road trip. We won't even stop at home. It's gonna be a long rest of the week, folks.

Here's a couple more photos I want to share taken by my new camera:

Vacation schmacation.

I love visiting my family here in Tennessee.
In case you didn't know, my two sisters and their husbands live here, including one nephew of mine.
I typically get to see them about 2 times a year (or 3 if I'm lucky, like this year). It's so sad, because I love seeing them so much!
This year, I have to say that this trip hasn't quite lived up to all of the hype I have gave it.

My sister, A, got sick the day after Christmas. She barely left my other sister, N's, house before she threw up. (Gross... i know.)
Good news though, she feels a lot better now. My parents and I are going to spend the day with her. We're gonna go to Franklin, and do a little shopping there. A works there, so she knows a lot about it.

Hope everyone's holidays are going a little bit better than mine. :)

Merry Christmas to all - and a snowy one at that!

Merry Christmas everyone!

In my family (which consists of me, mom, and dad) we opened up presents yesterday.
I got a camera!
It's obviously just a point-and-shoot camera, which is what I want and needed. The main thing I wanted in a camera was high megapixels - and it has a whoppin' 14.


Here are some of the first photos I've taken with it:

We left at 7am this morning, and got to Tennessee not too long ago. These are photos of my nephew, O. Ain't he cute?!

Well, I'm gonna go chill with family for a couple of days. Post if I get a chance. :)

Have a great holiday season!

I'm feeling rather teenage-ish today.

Stayed up too late last night at a friends house, didn't get enough sleep.

Good news though: I just got back from shopping with my dad, and I got the cutest scarf at Charlotte Russe.
(I'm obsessed with scarves as of late.)

Oh, and I'm pretty ecstatic because I found the perfect gift for my brother-in-law, Josh. A record of one of Muse's albums. Him and my sister have a record player, and he loves Muse.
Awesome idea, right? Thanks F.Y.E!
Just 3 days until I get to see my family in Tennessee!

Hope everyone's Christmasing is going great!

Vintage (I think).

Guess what Brittney just bought?

A camera.

(Please excuse crappy quality of photo. Taken with my phone.)

Yep, it's a Polaroid Land Camera, Colorpack 2, got about 10 names...
I really don't know anything about it. But I had to buy it, considering I got it for $2.25 at Goodwill. (I feel so out of my aura there. But my sister loves it.)

Even if it doesn't work at all, I would have bought it.

Anyway, I figured out what type of film it uses, and just bought some on eBay.
If anyone knows anything about this camera, please let me know?

Wish List!

Here are some things that I really want for Christmas.
(Yep, this is 'bout to be a very selfish post)
Silver Morocco TOMS.

These exact jeans from A&F.

Some white lights that I can hang in my room.

Frank Sinatra's Greatest Hits

An iPod dock

What about you? What are you hoping will be under the tree on Christmas day?

Fill in the Blank Friday #11

Happy Friday, everyone!

This Friday is especially special. Because why? Today was our last day of school until January 3rd! And we had a half day. :) Let the Christmasing begin!

But first, some blanks.
1. Giving is a lot more fun as I get older. It's fun to think up things that you know someone will love. Something that takes a lot of thought.
2. Receiving is I'm not gonna lie... fun. ;)
3. The best gift I ever received was my computer.
4. The best gift I ever gave was me back in a week.
5. Something intangible that I wish I could receive is
6. Something intangible that I wish I could give is self-respect. I hate when I see people get pushed around and stepped on over and over again by the same people.
7. The one gift I always wanted as I child, but never got was I think a Barbie Dream House - or something to that effect.

Monday - December 13

Happy Monday!

Sorry I haven't posted any Monday photos in a while.
This week's theme, though, will be:

(pretty pictures.)

All photos via We heart it.

Guess what's special about THIS Monday though?
No school! :D
God decided last night to dump buckets of snow on us.
I hate snow, but I love it when I get off school for it. :)
I slept for 12 hours last night. Would have been 7 if it weren't for the snow day.
Only down side is I have an orthodontist appointment today. But, this should be my second-to-last appointment before I get them off!

Hope your Monday is as good as mine!

Just a rant and some other fun stuff.

Am I the only one that hates buying things from Forever 21?
In magazines, online, and in person all anyone ever talks about as far as cute clothes go, is how much they LOVE F21 and how it's so cute and so cheap.
Yes, they're cute. And yes, they're cheap.
But everything FALLS APART the first time you wash it! What's the point in even buying the darn things if they don't last?
I bought a plain, longsleeved red t-shirt there a couple months ago, for like $7. Don't know what I was thinking. When I got home and ripped the price tag off, the tag that says the size came right off with it. Not that big of a deal, but that sort of just screams 'low quality' right there. And now it's starting to get a little hole in it towards the top. Not a big deal for now, but I know in about 5 washes I won't be able to wear it anymore.


On another note. I just got back from the family Christmas party I mentioned in my blanks yesterday. It was so fun! I played Apples to Apples with about half the family, and it was the first time I've ever played it. (Weird, right?) That game is sweet! Too bad my family consists of only 3 people, total. Right? Haha. Guess we'll have to save it for family get-togethers!

In other OTHER news...

How cute's this scarf from Gap? I'm not a fan of orange or red (which, this scarf seems to be an odd mix of them both), but I want this. Unfortunately, at just under $30, it's a little too rich for my (teenager-with-no-job) blood.

Hope everyone's having a fabulous weekend. :)

Fill in the Blank Friday.

Happy Friday!

(How cute is that picture?) :)

1. I wish I could take a year-long trip around the world. How amazing that would be. There's just so many places I want to see - and soon!
2. Yesterday I got through the day. Eh. I'm not so much for school. But, I got a couple hours of time alone at home; that was nice. I read a little, did some homework, and even cleaned up the house a bit.
3. Today I will be going out to eat with family, and then who knows what else. School's over for today, but I'm hoping to get a little reading in.
4. Tomorrow I will be at my cousin's house in Detroit for a family Christmas party! We do one every year, and I'm kind of excited for this one. Although, my mom's side of the family is a little high-strung, so... wish us luck. Dad can't go because he has to work overtime. Sad face. :(
5. Maybe I can get all A's by the end of the semester. It's not looking too hot right now. :( Wish me luck! :)
6. Someday I'll be married. (I hope! One of my fears is never marrying... and boy, I want to be married! ha!)
7. I love thinking about going to France someday. Twitter. Good friends. Christmas. Nashville. Dark wash jeans. The Eiffel Tower. My sisters, family.

Guess what?

school sucks.


Sad, but true.
I have no idea how some people can say that high school was the best 4 years of their life. Try 4 years of hell.
I'm not unpopular or anything, I'm purely average. Middle of the totem pole. I'm social at school, try to make plans most weekends, and am outgoing when I'm comfortable with it.
It's not like I'm a freak of anything. Really, I'm not. I have friends, a large group of people to sit with at lunch.
But that's really not the way things are. I don't have one, single best friend. I don't have one person that I could tell everything to that goes to my school.
I've got my 25 year old sister, who lives 500 miles away. We talk a lot, and she really understands what I'm going through.
It's not like I'm depressed or anything folks, don't freak out. Lol. I'm just wishing I had a best friend who was my age.
You know?

Oh, and it really doesn't make me feel any better knowing I've got a full, 5-day week ahead of me.

Oh well.
Just 2 and a half more years.
And in just a few weeks, I'll be in Nashville chilling with my sisters. :)
