My weekend & The Grammy's

So this weekend I went to Charlotte, NC to spend the weekend with the boy. I was veryyyy excited to get away from the stress of work and Columbia and see the boy who I haven't seen in 2 weeks! When I got to about the border between SC and NC on 77 it started snowing, like legit snowing, not flurries that don't it was snowing and hard to was CRAZY and something that I have never seen in the South since I have been here! ...I found it hilarious because NO ONE was venturing out cause of the weather and the drivers were awful...i deff agree with the sign i saw on my way up which said "winter driving advisory, please try to stay indoors until Monday".. Charlotte drivers truly should try to stay in...if you don't know how to drive in the snow (or if the city continues to not plow anything) please stay indoors! we just relaxed and cuddled most the was nice and relaxing! :)

We talked about the future and moving in together over the summer and our apartment and stuff...and I'm just very excited about all the upcoming things going on with me! It is crazy how old we really are!! Nicole is about to graduate and be a REAL nurse in a hospital, Hizzle has her own place in ATL with a PRESH new puppy, and Cagle is a teacher who now OWNS her own town really?? Where did the time gooo????? but it's great because we are all learning and growing up together and I can't wait to see what the future holds for us in the next couple of years! :)

old schoooooool pic of me and the girls (don't kill me!hahaha)

Any who I just got done watching the Grammy's and WOW..alot of cool things this year! First of all GAGA = amazing...I'm sorry ya'll I am one of her "little monsters" as she calls her fans! I know she is weird and her outfits are cra cra...but I LOVE her and all her songs. "Pokerface" was deff my theme song for about 3 months last spring!& she is from NY so I have to support my hometown girl! ..I MUST find a way to see her in concert ASAP!...The performance of Lil Wayne, Eminem, Travis Barker, and just have to respect the gathering of all those creative minds...I loved seeing them all on stage together! and with regards to my COUNTRY music loves representing...LADY A...ya'll were greattttt! You sounded fab and looked amazing...and I LOVE your song "Need You Know"! And of course "Baby Tay"..I just adore you and think you deserve all your awards...this is your year and you are it girl!! I just love seeing someone without an ego who truly gets excited when they win stuff!!! I'm still praying that I will meet you when you come to SC in April (I seriously bug the DJ every week)! haha.. anyway I am soooo proud to be a small part of country music...i just love it!

So coming up this week I am turning in my application for my apartment & Monica is receiving her first credit card in the mail (yes its pink monogram)...I will keep you posted

*David Nail's new single "Turning Home" ....loooooooooooove!

**Jersey Shore has its originally cast for Season 2 signed on(there is rumors they will be in a warmer place then NJ and for there sake im hoping its in FL and not the Carolina's or something cause they will get beat up and in fights every night here)!

Random Facts & Things

Okie so I figured my first post would be 10 thoughts and things about me! I know my life isn't the most fascinating but I hope ya'll find this remotely interesting! :)

1.) I am a half Irish, half Italian girl from Westchester and now Dutchess County, NY. No I am not a guidette, I hate clubs, I don't fist pump, and I have never/will never date a guido. I am proud of where I'm from and love my friends and my cute hometown! I absolutely love going home to visit and the things I miss most are my family, my bff Caitlin, all my friends from JJ HS, Italian food (especially Chicken Parm Pizza from Gian Bruno's), & my doggie Cody.

2.) I am sooooo close to my family. My mom is my best friend and idol and I hope I can be half the woman and mother that she is! My dad is amazing and deff spoils me...I'm a daddie's girl and always will be. I have two baby brothers Joey (about to be 16 omg) and Chris (12)...I love them so much and I'm so sad I can't be around them everyday but I'm super protective, even from the South so don't even try it girls. Even my extended family all my grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins I am super close with and couldn't be more blessed in this department!

Me and my momma on my graduation day! :)

3.) Me and my boyfriend Seth have been together actually 6 1/2 years today (yes I know that's a long time) and I know it hasn't been the perfect relationship recently but I love him to death and he is not only my bf but my best friend and I know no guy will ever love me like him! I'm looking forward to our relationship growing and changing and can't wait for things ahead! love ya babe 7.27.03

4.) I LOVE THE SOUTH. Like I never want to leave! I love everything about it and some of my favorites include: pearls, Carolina Cup, Jack Rogers, Lilly Pulitzer, tailgating, southern boys, everyone being so sweet, Greek Life, the beach, the weather, the accent, and sweet tea.

5.) The University of South alma mater! I couldn't be more proud to be a gamecock and coming to school here has been by far the best decision I have made in my life so far! There is nothing like tailgating for hours before a football game, sneaking bourban in, hearing 2001, and celebrating in 5pts whether we won or lost! haha.... GOOOOOOOOO COCKSSSSSSSSSSSS!

6.) Yes I was a sorority girl and I'm still involved with my Alum Chapter. Delta Zeta was also one of the best decisions I have made. My sorority is amazing and I have TRULY met my best friends and bridesmaids while a DZ. I held many positions including Pledge Mom and I loved every second of it...I would always recommend going Greek no matter what the letters! :)

Me. Cagle, Hizzle, Nicole = my bff's & bridesmaids

7.) I LOVE reality TV shows. Like It's really bad and pathetic how involved I get with the show and cast. My favorites lately include: The Bachelor (totally team Tenley), The Real World, Teen Mom, Jersey Shore (i know this is bad, and Snooki is from my hometown...VOMIT), Bad Girl's Club, Millionaire Matchmaker, Platinum Weddings, King of the Crown, and the list goes onnnnnnnn...I know I need help.

8.) I'm obsessed with traveling and haven't done much but I want to go EVERYWHERE and the top places on my list right now are Italy, Ireland, Cali, and the Bahamas. My SB' 09 in Puerto Vallarta Mexico was probably one of the best weeks of my life and I had the best time with my best friends and met some guys whom I look at as the brothers I never had!...I want to go back and honestly think about it alot! haha

Puerto Crew! <3 (missin a bunch of my now brothers though!)

9.) One of the best things going on in my life now is I'm moving into my first post-college apartment all by myself in the next 2 months so I have been obsessed with finding stuff for it, decorating, and looking on IKEA all the time! I CANNOT WAIT and I will keep you updated! and PLEASE I need just about everything for it so If you have anything extra or know of any good deals please let me know!

10.) My job as an account executive is great and I love it but deff stressful and not as stable as I would like. But I do love it and it has a lot of great benefits like getting to put on events, concerts and goodies, and my favorite meeting country artists so I will deff keep you updated on who I meet. So far I have met Chris Young (im obsessed and he's a total sweetheart) and David Bradley. And I figured that I would end each blog with a country song that I love and think you should listen to...and maybe some gossip if I know of anything good! :)

*Lady Antebellum - "American Honey" ..LOVE this new single!!!

**Snooki really is like that in real life, she is deff NOTTT the Princess of Poughkeepsie, and more things happened in that hot tub then they showed...eww vomit again.
