all of the fun friday posts in one big post :)


Kelly's Korner

So here is the deal:

EX: Write about a single guy you know in a post and link up - please note when you link - where you live (state)..... and maybe his age........John D., 32, AR

My single friend is Brendon -

Me & BRENDO on his birthday!

He would absolutely KILL me if he knew this was up here! HA! :) He is 30 and lives in Myrtle Beach, SC. He works at the university where I work too (he helped me score the job!) in the IT department. He can fix any computer that takes a turn for the worse! He is such a great guy... he just always seems to end up with sketchy girls!


1.  A very nostalgic place that reminds me of being a kid is Camp Pine Hill in Bennettsville, SC. It is a baptist retreat where I went every single summer as a kid! Several summers I even went more than one week!

2.  If someone really wants to show me how much they love me they simply have to show me. Actions speak louder than words!!

3.  Lately I've been wondering a lot about if I will ever go to grad school. I highly doubt it but I really do want to!!

4.  When it comes to saving money I am  horrible! I have never been able to save money.

5.  I'd prefer     sleep    over    anything    any day!  (Ask anyone who knows me. There isn't anything I love to do more. I sleep seriously like 10 hours a night. I have to!)

6.  I wish I knew how to make quilts. I would make a million like the one Nan made me for my birthday. That thing came this week and I am sleeping like a baby. B is too! He calls it the Ambian quilt.

7.  I'm just waiting for September.... cooler weather.... football.... our cruise!
FRIDAY FIVES: Five things you do to relax, destress, contain your composure or that you just enjoy doing for yourself!
1. Smoke
I know... it is terrible. A disgusting habit. I quit for months at the time. But anytime something really stresses me out, it is the only thing that calms me down. I WILL quit for good before I'm 30. Plus, B said he would never propose until I quit smoking! :)

2. Go for a drive... particularly down a back road, windows down, music up. It always drowns out whatever problems I have... clears the head.

3. Read - I can't think about anything else. I lose myself in a book.

4. Sleep.... I said it earlier... but honestly, nothing cures my stress like my bed does. Nothing.

5. Call mama. If all else fails, call mama.


My favorite cocktail is as simple as a vodka cranberry. I'm more of a beer girl. But when I drink a cocktail, it is always a vodka cranberry.


1. Do you collect anything?
Nope. Except maybe clothes?

2. Name 3 celebrities that you find good looking.
1) Wentworth Miller
2) Channing Tatum
3) Jake Gyllenhaal 

3. Do you have any scars? If so, what's the story behind it (them?)?
Do I have scars? Are you kidding me? Where do I begin? Scar on my chin (fainted in shower), scar on my elbow (fell off a moped), scar on my toe (jumped on a broken Mt. Dew bottle barefooted while running).... those are the biggest ones.

4. What is a food that you like to eat, but others might think it's gross or weird?
Umm... I mix ranch dressing & ketchup and eat my fries with it.

5. Have you ever seen a tornado in real life?
No. Biggest fear. I'd crap my pants.


  1. I love your de-stress list.. minus the smoking!!
    My sister is a big-time smoker - just think of all the money you'd be saving!

  2. Love all your Friday post- I need to do that next week, just put them all in one big post!! I love sestress list, I should have put call mom too, always helps!
    Thanks for doing my Friday Fives!! Have a a great weekend!
