Important Things


I am addicted to clothes. I have been for a long time. It has never mattered what size I am, I love to shop and I love to try new looks. In the past year and three months, I have gone from a size 20 (yes a 20) to a size 4 (woohoo!). That however, meant lots and lots of shopping (real sad huh?). I got very good at finding really cute clothes at reasonable prizes and have started frequenting shops that I normally would never have thought of. This past Christmas I went to Charlotte Russe for the first time and found some really cute tops all for under $20 (I'll do my best to post some pictures of what I got there this weekend). I also started shopping at New York and Company. I absolutely can not wear their pants. They just don't make their pants to fit my ghetto booty. But, they have got some darling tops. I found this one on their website and thought it was just too precious. It is ON SALE (my favorite two words in the English language).
It was originally $36.95 and is now $24.95. The website is nyandco.com. I do believe I shall be ordering that one. They have also got alot of their new stuff on the website.
I also started going to Dress Barn. NO KIDDING. They have some really cute and trendy things and their pants fit me just right! The cutest thing I have seen lately is a faux leather metallic trench. They have it on their website dressbarn.com. Unfortunately, you can't order from their website, but I plan on going looking for that little item this weekend.
I hope you all have a really great weekend!!!

The Ghosts of Savannah

A big I'm sorry to my older sister, Denise. I rarely call her Denise, it's Nisey, but anyway, I forgot to tell her that I had started a blog. So, I told her I would write about her in it to make up for it and because I like this story alot. It still makes me laugh to think about it. A few summers ago both my sisters and I were in Savannah and we decided to go on a ghost tour. We all watch Ghost Hunters and were super excited to go. So, we load up on this trolley that was hotter than the third ring of hell, not to mention there was someone that obviously did not take hygiene very seriously. The first stop on our tour was a graveyard. It was really neat and spooky, which is always good for a ghost tour. There were also tour guides that dressed in period clothing and were obviously drama students from SCAD. Anyway, I decided I would take random pictures in the graveyard to try and catch some ghosties on film. Nisey laughed the entire time, but she was just as into it as I was because she kept telling me where to aim the camera. The trolley finally came and picked us up and took us to a house that was actually on an episode of Ghost Hunters. When we get to the house, they lead us to the basement and everything goes dark. Next, the episode of Ghost Hunters begins playing that has E.V.P's (Electric Voice Phenomena - I told you I liked Ghost Hunters) of a woman screaming for help. Nisey keeps inching closer and closer to me. I try to pretend that I'm not scared but the only thing that was keeping me from running out of there was my pride. They take us upstairs to this really creepy room that had old portraits on the wall. They proceed to tell us the story of the original owners of the house. The man of the house had an afair with the house maid and his wife finds out and commits suicide. Then the house maid is thrown out of the top window of the carriage house. The tour guide tells us all about the strange happenings of the house and we all get a good case of the willies. As the tour guide leads us across the hall to another room, voices can be heard from upstairs at which point, my younger sister yells SH-T!!!! She then proceeds to run, at this point Nisey has absolutely no idea what is going on but get's this WTH look on her face and starts running like a bat out of hell too! The voices were the current residents of the house by the way. I laughed so hard I almost wet my pants. The SCAD students were not happy that we ruined their spooky aura that they had worked so hard to create, but we had a blast! I always have a good time when I get together with my sisters and I'm sure I will be sharing some more stories in the future.

Who Are You?

Thank you to all my new blog friends! I will do my best to be me. Speaking of me, have you ever known anyone that didn't really know who they were? I have had that experience a few times with people not knowing who they are, so they tried to be me. That has to be the most annoying thing in the whole world! It makes you feel like that old show with Patty Duke and she played cousins that looked alike, talked alike, etc. No kidding, one time, I kept dying my hair different colors just to see if the "wannabe Kelly" would do the same thing. And She Did!! You know I think that not knowing who you are is so sad, so that is my advice for the day, be yourself. God made you who you are because He has a special purpose for you, not because He wants you to pretend to be someone else. That is my deep thought for the day. They don't come often, so enjoy it while it lasts.

I'm Not Green

I'm not talking about anything environmental either. I wanted to name my blog "It's Not Easy Being Green" because green is my favorite color and my name is Kelly (I'm sorry, I like puns). However, I was afraid I would get readers seeking to be more environmentally conscious. Sorry, you ain't gettin' that here. Like I said in my "About Me" section, I am the middle child of three girls. I was convinced from an early age that the only reason my parents had my younger sister was to replace me. I had issues. I was also obsessed with wanting to be a boy. I ran around all the time with nothing but my panties on because I thought that it was unfair that girls had to wear shirts and boys didn't. I still think that boys have much cooler toys than girls. However, I do enjoy being a girl now. I love clothes, makeup, hair products, etc. I kinda feel sorry for guys (well most guys) because they don't get to do all the fun girlie stuff. To get us off on the right foot I thought I would give you a list of little known facts about me (I always love reading these on others blogs). So here goes.

1. I have actually wet my pants from laughing as an adult.

2. I giggle when people cuss.

3. I love Willy Nelson, Bon Jovi, Beyonce, and Taylor Swift.

4. I have blown Sprite out of my nose laughing, also as an adult. Here is the short version of the story. I was sitting at lunch beside one of my students and somehow we got on the subject of "Jack and the Beanstalk". I said, "Fee fi fo fum," and the kid beside me finishes it with, "I smell the butt of an Englishman." The Sprite then spewed.

5. I like brownies and barbecue sauce.

6. I inadvertently say inappropriate things. Such as, at choir practice one night, I was asked if I minded singing with the sopranos instead of the altos to which I replied, "No, I'm easy."

7. I'm a shopaholic.

8. I love spicy food. The hotter the better.

9. I love to play Mario Kart and Guitar Hero on the Wii.

10. I love big men. Over 6 foot and over 200 pounds usually. My husband is 6'3" 240 lbs. and I am 5'2" 128 lbs.
