Sunday Social

Sunday Social
1. What is the first website you log into each day? Facebook, email, and Twitter.
Facebook Buttons Image 3648
2. Give us some funny websites that you visit that we need to know about.

3. Pinterest or Facebook? Why? Facebook. I love keeping in touch with my friends from college and home. As much as I love Pintrest I love my friends more.

4. Twitter or Instagram? Why? Twitter. Twitter can keep me entertained for a lot longer. Instagram only keeps me occupied for about 2 minutes.
5. Favorite YouTube video. Post it! I honestly don't ever go on youtube. I don't know why I just  can't spend all day on it but this video makes me laugh every time I watch it

6. Biggest online pet peeve? When people write like.... @ the beach.u wish u were as kool as me. Ugh we aren't in middle school anymore. Write like an adult. Also when people are bipolar on facebook. One minute you're saying how much you hate everyone and the next you are having the best day ever. You will be deleted.

What are your internet favorites?

West Virginia Football

This video has me so excited for football. Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE summer and do not want it to end but I am ready for football to start. Do I have any Big 12 fans to talk some friendly smack to? 

8 Days and counting!

1. What were you like in Middle School/HS?
In middle school I played a ton of sports. I did gymnastics in the fall, volleyball in the winter and tennis in the spring. In high school I had my group of girlfriends but I socialized with everyone. I was on the volleyball and cheerleading team and was captain of both during senior year (I had to choose between my sports because in high school they were all in fall). I was definitely not in the popular group but I loved high school and wouldn't change anything about that time. Oh and I had really bad hair until sophomore year. Yuck. 


2. What were your favorite past times?  Volleyball, cheerleading, hanging out with friends and boyfriend, and of course shopping.

3. What songs were you obsessed with?(Backstreet Boys anyone?) Of course in Middle School (or younger I have no idea) I loved the Spice Girls and N*Sync. In high school I liked Eminiem and Britney Spears. 

4. What fashion statement do you look back on and cringe? One time in middle school I wore these bright red pants. Horrible. I definitely looked like a stop sign.

5. Who was your celeb crush? Paul Walker and Jessie McCartney. 


6. What were your favorite tv shows/movies? One Tree Hill, Grey's and Laguna Beach. For movies I loved Billy Madision, Happy Gilmore, Elf, and Jerry Maguire. I also watched a ton of  Julia Roberts movies. Can I just say how happy I was when I found out Laguna Beach was on MTV again? I love it!

1. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? Pizza. I would die if I could not eat pizza anymore.

2. What's your guilty pleasure/comfort food? Chocolate chip cookies and my mom's meatballs. 

3. What's the weirdest/craziest thing you've ever eaten? Lamb balls from Cattleman's in OK. Not disgusting but I won't be eating them again.

4. What foods do you avoid at all costs? Mushrooms. I can't stand them and I have no idea why.

5. What meal reminds you of your childhood? My mom didn't make a lot of things while  I was growing up. We had take out and frozen foods often but my mom makes awesome meatballs and macaroni salad. Yum.

6. Share one of your favorite recipes and the story behind it.
Every time I have friends over to watch football I make Buffalo Chicken Dip. It is so good and easy to make!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Recent Reads

I love curling up with my kindle and reading. I am always looking for a good book so every once and a while I will be posting what I read to help others find new books to read.

Gone Girl
"On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer? "- Amazon
I really enjoyed this book until the end. I still don't understand the ending. Anyone want to explain it to me? 3/5 stars

The Selection (The Selection, #1)
"For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in the palace and compete for the heart of the gorgeous Prince Maxon."- Goodreads
It is pretty much like reading the Bachelor but with a tiny bit of Hunger games. It was a nice easy read. 3/5

My One and Only
"Divorce attorney Harper James can’t catch a break. Bad enough that she runs into her ex-hubby, Nick, at her sister’s destination wedding, but now, by a cruel twist of fate, she’s being forced to make a cross-country road trip with him. And her almost-fiancĂ© back at home is not likely to be sympathetic. " -Goodreads
I just started reading Kristan Higgins and I have loved all her books so far. This one was no different. 4/5

Of course I root for my Mountaineers.
I like college football more than professional but I root for the Giants since I am from NY.

looks so comfortable
