According To Twitter: Take Two

It happened again. I had zero ideas for today's blog post. This seems to be somewhat of a normal trend around here which is really quite odd because I have SO many thought provoking things to say (hence my latest blog post on french fries..) Regardless I did what I knew to do when my brain is low on the creativity skill: I put out a twitter call. This is similar to a booty call, however no actual booty is involved. This could change if somebody requested me to talk about that region of my body (flat pancake, lets not go there), but until that time it is what I said it is, a twitter call. I tweet at you telling you to tell me what to write about, you tweet back, I write a blog post, and wa-la..a whole lotta tweetin' and typin' takes place! Another post under my belt and lots of great meaningful information for you to soak up (no but seriously..we are touching on swimming pools AND necklaces today). Let's see what all you twit heads had for ideas. 

Jamie responded back right away with "Show off your necklace collection". I am assuming you are intrigued solely because of my latest dinosaur neck picture and now wonder what could possibly fit on that thing? 
You want my necklace collection, you got it sweetheart.
If you would now like to come organize this mess, it would be greatly appreciated. thank you. 

Next up Stevie asked "Why don't pools open until Memorial Day and how stupid is that?!" I have one answer to this-open the dang pool. I didn't know that pools and white pants fell under the same laws but you know what I say, laws are meant to be broken. Especially stupid ones like that. So there's that. 

Sami wants to know about the martini club I am in and how she goes about getting invited. 
martini club this past wednesday evening

Well lady, here is all you need to know about the martini club: it is a group of us girls who actually enjoy each other's company that get together monthly at a different location to drink and eat dinner. Some call this "going to dinner with friends" we call it "martini club" because duh, that makes you sound cooler and more business-like. In order to get invited you simply need to know how to eat, drink, and talk. If you have those three things going for you, consider yourself a member! In fact, you don't even have to talk-just eat and drink and we will accept you! Cheers! 

And last but certainly not least, Cayla wants to know how our little (itty bitty) lake cottage is coming along. Well Cayla, it's coming. The inside is ALMOST complete and then we just have the entire outside to redo (siding, landscaping, cement pouring, etc etc fricken etc). I originally thought we would have everything done by Thanksgiving of last year. It's May. What's time though right? When the thing is done in its entirety you best believe there will be an entire blog post dedicated to before and after pictures. I didn't break a nail for nothin'.

Welp, none of you requested to see my double jointed elbow which I thought was odd, but don't worry. 
I've got you covered on that one. 
You may go throw up now. 

On that note it's time to say "have yourself a merry little weekend.." and be on my merry little way.

Holla back youngin'.
Today's featured sponsor is a girl that I would LOVE to have join martini club. It's Alexa from Southern Living, Our Way
Clearly a girl after my own heart who would fit into martini club just fine ;) Alexa has got to be one of the funniest ladies out there (and we love funny, amen?) Not only does she write a killer blog, she is a pro on using the smiley faces on g-chats. Whoa I know. I have been lucky enough to follow along on Alexa's blog for a little while now and I promise you that home girl does not disappoint. While she is normally forcing a smile on my face, she teaches us what is important-and that is dancing in the rain and not crying if your Louis Vuitton purse gets flooded. One thing you should also know-she is married to this handsome man that she loves to adore. 
Get to know Alexa and her awkward childhood stage (plus more) here. Have fun!

  1. your so funny! Thank you for making me smile today despite it beng the last week before final exams. I hope you have a great weekend!

  2. OMG, I love your necklace collection! *Swoon!* Can I borrow some, please? :)
    Haha, anyway... so if you're lacking ideas in the "what-to-write-for-my-blog" department, have you heard about the fricken' awesome challenge that Jenni from Story of My Life came up with? It's a challenge to write every.single.day.in.May. While that seems totally cray cray, Jenni provided writing prompts, English class style, and it definitely makes the goal a little more achievable, especially when you're at a loss for what to write about!

    Just thought you might like to join in on the fun (and I'm hoping you do, because duh, I love your blog!). :) Here's the link: http://storyofmylifetheblog.blogspot.com/2013/04/blog-every-day-in-may-challenge.html

  3. OMG. I have a double jointed elbow too!! You've gotta take a picture of it from the side. People freak out over mine! And that necklace collection... SWOON!

  4. Ohhh man… if I could seriously just have maybe 1/3 of that necklace collection I'd be one happy gal! I like whatever the heck that is they're hanging on though… so btw, what the heck is it and where can I get one?! :)

  5. Alexa is one my favorites! I have to say that your necklace collection is spectacular. I have this really old costume pearl necklace that's about half the length of my body (and I'm 6'3") that I keep trying to wear... and now I'm going to. Thanks for the unexpected inspiration!

  6. Heyyyy... I'm not the only one with a double jointed elbow! I didn't even realize elbows weren't supposed to do that until I was in high school and someone pointed out that it wasn't normal.

  7. yes what are those necklaces hanging on? how does one keep that necklace collection from tangling?

  8. Another double-jointed elbow lady right here! :) When I did competitive cheerleading (YEARS AGO) they actually had to list my elbow as a handicap on any judging sheets, because that darn arm would never look straight in any pose.

  9. Wow, holy necklaces batman! I think you may have a few.
    I totally want to make my friends be in my martini club that I am going to start ;D ha ha!

  10. I HAVE A DOUBLE JOINTED ELBOW TOO! not a dinosaur next though... bummer

  11. Not gunna lie..the elbow was my favorite picture.. My elbows are ridiculously double jointed as well... like, so double jointed, that I can twist my arms all the way around and then bend them inwards while they are still twisted. I think it's time we start touring with the carnival.

  12. man i missed this tweet!! i love these posts and i want to join your martini club.

  13. OH EM GEE extremely jealous of that necklace collection girlfran! Perhaps you should start a sisterhood of the traveling necklaces? ;)

  14. Wow, that's one AMAZING necklace collection! I first thought they were pictures you had taken in a shop....lucky lucky you!
    I'd love a closer look at your necklace hanging thingy. I'm always on the lookout for something cool to hang my (very few) necklaces on.
    Have a great weekend!

  15. Holy crap you have a lot of necklaces!

  16. i want that collection...and where in the world did you get those boards to hook your necklaces on?!

  17. Love the necklace collection. If you really want to scare people with the double-jointed elbow you gotta show it from the side so they can really see it bending in the wrong direction. I gross people out with mine all the time, I think its fun lol. Also, as a note, I have been enjoying the "Blog everyday in May" that Story of my Life initiated, if you want a topic you should check it out!

  18. I too have the double jointed elbow thing going on....freaks the heck outta my husband ;)


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
