grrfeisty: July 2010

my not-so-inner feisty

oh hi! how are you doing?
oh my goodness it's kinda good to be home.  i had a great time visiting my family in miami, and will miss hanging out with them and laughing until i'm in tears, but my puppies need some lovin' and my spirit needs some grounding. haha does that makes sense? maybe my soul needs grounding? my arms are tired? :)
before i left for miami i finally got whip it through netflix [looong wait!].  i totally fell in love with the movie and kept talking about it while we were with our family. we were in target one day, i decided at the very last minute to buy it.  i think i watched it 4 more times [2x in a row! ha!].
it's funny because i come off as pretty shy, but, well, my user name almost everywhere is "grrfeisty." :)
i don't know how to exlpain it without coming off as a jerk or weirdo
[maybe i already come off as a weirdo :) ],
but i like playing rough...i pretty much always have...
i admire strong, independent women.  i try really hard to be both of these things, and this movie pretty much encompassed that.
BUT i'm not very gutsy.  i hate rejection. and crowds of people make me incredibly nervous and shy...
arghhhh
i visited the houston roller derby website and am trying to gather the courage to invest in a pair of roller skates [if you recall, i already roller blade a LOT]
and go at it until they have try outs again.  my sister and i even spent a couple hours last night throwing nickname options around! haha
but first, there's a bout coming up in august, so i think i'll check that out :)


OKAY. yesterday i took some photographs of my cousin and her fiance in the location in which they'd like to be married next year.  let me just say that i am not at all a professional photographer and we were just goofing around.  there are millions of amazing photographs all over the net...please don't judge my goofy amateur skillzzzz
:)
i love the weird faces my cousin makes. isn't she beeee-autiful?

i look forward to blogging regularly again now that i'm back home and the school year is about to start.
on the flight back home i jotted down some fun ideas for the ol' bloggeroo! so stay tuned! there's a giveaway, some pretty sweet sales going down, and bunches more :)
exes and oh ohs,
your feisty little friend!

p.s. the shop has been re-loaded with goodies! check 'em out! :D

p.p.s. or is it p.s.s.? anyways, i saw despicable me the other day.....
while the movie is okay, there are some amazingly cute/hilarious moments :D
