cheese samples and other important news

Friday night was girls' night. We had dinner at Bossa Nova then went to Ferneau then hopped on down to Baci. It was cool outside but finally pretty enough to get dolled up. I just couldn't get up early the next day to do the race, so I just had my own race in my neighborhood. I won. Yes, so true. Even the cars couldn't catch up with me. Though I wasn't the speed of sound, I was the speed of lightning. Then went to Jill's for an after the race brunch.
I don't know how many of you know how awesome my hearing is, but I must tell this story. I can't hear all. I get every lyric wrong to every song. At the brunch my cousin Tekia was singing the new Miley Cyrus song "Party in the USA" and I just happen to like that one. A very catchy tune. So I'm
singing along, dancing, and singing. I sing, "...and the J.V. song was on. and the J.V. song was on, and the J.V. song was on!" Those of you who are familiar with that song know to which part I am referring. Jill quickly stops me and says, "Did you just say J.V.?" I said yes and she said,"It's Jay-Z. the rapper." Ya know, there could be a singer named J.V. I mean, really it is catchy. It doesn't have to stand for junior varsity.
After brunch I went to my long-time friend Tessa's baby shower. It's just so weird when your friends start shooting out children. It was great to see her and the rest of the White crew.

My roommate and I took a very relaxing trip to Hot Springs to her parents condo. Sometimes you just need to get away. We left Saturday night after watching the wonderful Razorbacks lose. We went to whole foods to get us some snacks. You know what I love about whole foods? They put out lots of samples. I ate gouda, white cheddar, and white cheddar with cranberry cheese. I even stole a crouton from the salad bar. Samples make the world go round. All of my fondest memories involve food. Imagine that. I remember driving all the way to Texarkana to shop at the Sam's Club. Oh boy, did they have samples! It was sample Heaven.

Now that you know my love for samples...We got back last night and did 30 Day Shred. Caroline and I have done it for 7 days straight now. I would do it this morning, but I have a horrible crick in my neck and a sharp pain in my shoulder. I must have slept in a weird way at the lake. I shouldn't have worked out last night but oh well. I may have to sit out a few days. Boo.

I wish I had Hermione Granger's time turner

Watch Harry Potter and the Prison of Azkaban and you will understand. Where does the time go? Oh ya'll...where do I even begin? I apologize to my blog family; I've not updated in 3 months. I'll give you a quick rundown of the goings-on in my life.

  • grad school started. There goes my life. I took two classes in summer school.
  • went to Hot Springs for the 4th with Caroline and Sarah
  • went to Dallas to visit one of my best friends from college, Meredith.

    Meredith and I at House of Blues.

Meredith, Kyla, Buzz and I at Mi Cocina.


  • I moved in with my friend Caroline and a girl named Haleigh. I only moved 7 streets from where I used to live so it was an easy move. I just HATE moving! So gross! I absolutely the house. Please come visit!
  • Went to New York and stayed with a friend there...stayed in Harlem and might I say that was an adventure. I got seranated by a man on the subway in Harlem. He sang "My Girl" but he switched up the lyrics. They went something like this: "Talking bout my girl (white girl), talking about my girl (white girl)." Yes that's right. He said he like my feet and that he wanted to take me to his house and make me some Kool-Aid.
  • I saw Mary Poppins and Shrek. I was a bit disappointed with Mary Poppins. All of you who know me know that if I were to be reincarnated it would be as Mary Poppins. She is my icon. But fair friends, this was based off of the book. Who knew there was a book? I mean really? Shrek though was FABULOUS! I highly recommend it.
  • I tried to get a man selling Obama condoms to come to church with me the next day. As you can imagine, it didn't go so well. hhhmmm....
  • Sarah, Brian and I rented bikes to ride through Central Park. We biked around the entire park! It was took about 5 hours, and I even wore a dress. Did I show my goodies to everyone? Yes. My attempts to be like Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music did backfire but not untilt he last 15 min. I did so good all day. The weather was perfect! And then I was rounding a curve and BAM...the dress flies up in my face. Luckily it wasn't a day I chose to go commando! My dress flew up in my face, and in my attempts to get my dress out of my face and keep driving, I almost wrecked.
  • During our bike trip, we stopped at the boathouse. You know, that really famous place on movies where all this fake happiness happens. Yes that boathouse. We rented a boat and sailed away. My friend Brian thought it would be funny to get really near the shore and yell "Land ho." I did and then I forgot to row back out and actually crashed into the shore. Then I told them I was from Arkansas and they understood. I might've peed on my self from laughing to hard. Hard to tell if it was pee or sweat. Oops!
  • This is my cousin Jamison (Mica's son).

Watch and be amazed.


  • Razorback game at War Memorial.
  • A few birthday parties
  • A wedding
  • Mom's 53rd birthday
  • My friend Kaitlin stayed with me as she passed through to Monroe.

That, my friends, sums up my life for the past few months.
