Top Two Names:
Girl Name: Natalie Marie
Boy Name: Campbell Kane (but call him Camp)
I know this are pretty old fashion/not hip and cool like many of the popular names nowadays, but I love them! I have always loved the name Natalie, and my middle name is Marie, so I like that. My boyfriend's middle name is Campbell and I sometimes wish I could just call Camp (but I like Taylor too). Kane is my younger brother's middle name my Grandmother's maiden name, so I am hoping I can help carry that on,and I just love the way it sounds with Campbell!
Just as an fyi/get excited. I am working on another post for today all about my summer camp! I started talking about camp with my friend Katie (who's blog is awesome!), and I just wanted to explain the whole thing, the traditions, the heat, the friends, the memories, the whole ordeal. SO, get excited all you friendly campers, because it'll be here soon!

Number 10: Sarah Jessica Parker in Yellow!
Number 8: Helen Mirren - so classy for all ages, I hope to be as beautiful as her when I am her age!
Number 7: Kate Winslet
I love how simple this looks, yet so elegant. Just gorgeous!
Number 6: Cameron Diaz
I LOVE glitter! And this dress was just enough glitter and glam. And her red lips...just all great!
Number 5: Anna Kendrick
I had heard so much about how well she dressed...and then I saw it! This dress is just classic to me! I love off the shoulder and it is so goddess to me!
Number 4: Sandra Bullock (but only on here, FAVE actress ever)
She just looked stunning. There is no other word for it! And I love how she isn't PIN THIN!
Number 3: Cannot believe I am saying this..Miley Cyrus
First of all, I won't get in a rant about how I feel about her, but I LOVED her dress last night. I was so impressed with how beautiful she looked. I would wear this dress in a heartbeat...if I hadn't eaten in two years.
Number 2: Rachel McAdams
She just blew everybody out of the water. This is just gorgeous. The hair, the make-up, the dress, HER! Love love love it! The only reason it isn't number one is because...well you'll see!
Number 1: Penelope Cruz
It isn't HER that is number one, it is this dress. I wish I could have this dress and wear it everyday of my life. I LOVE it! It is so flattering, such a gorgeous color, the right length. Perfection in a dress. Wish it was mine!
I would love to hear some of your favorites! I have some not so favorites either, but I think the stars get enough trash talk from the fashion police. I'll let them alone. These stars just looked marvelous and I had to share! Hope you all had a marvelous weekend!!! Happy Monday to you all!

(These are my boys as I like to call them. My first group that I helped get elected with being a campaign manager)
And last night marked the night that annoucements were made for who won the yell leader posistions this year! See at Texas A&M, the Student Body President (SBP) and Yell Leader elections are a big time in the spring. There is a week of full out campaigning. This is the main way they campaign:
These are called sheet signs! ALL OVER CAMPUS! At differnt locations with 2-4 people "manning" them! Telling everybody "Howdy!" and "Vote 5forYell!" (that's our slogan) And yes I still say our, because I still support them and I put a LOT of my college time into it, so I still care a lot! (if you weren't sure) They also hold these signs on the corners of campus, these are pretty big intersections in town so a lot of people see them! That was always my favorite thing to do, so I actually have this campaign season. I get off at 4 and then I head to the corners of campus and do some sign holding and jumping around. It really is great! So the point of all of this was...well there were two points.

For this week I am going to do what I think is what I will do most days and that is just talk. Since my blog is so new, those of you reading, don't really know me quite yet. I don't think it is very fair that I have been able to read about you and your life and kind of get a sense of who you are, but you don't really know that much about me. For those of you who are close to me and do know a lot about me, you might even learn something new!
Today I'm going to tell more about me in the format of those surveys we used to get when we were younger over email that was so cool!To me it was cool. The only difference is, back then I would have had the black background with all the different neon colors for my font...today we'll keep it simple with one of my favorite colors: black.

- I LOVE TO WRITE. It is as simple as that. In college people would HATE when they had 10 page papers due...I thrived on it. That isn't to say that I didnt' wait until the night or weeeknd before it was due...that part is even more fun, FAST WRITING! Ha.
- I want to eventually write for the world to read. I mean this is technically for the world to read, but I want to write books. Lots of books. I want to tell the stories of my life and share my life and my love with the whole world. So this is how I plan to begin. I know the more I write the better I can be at it, and hopefully that will help me finally start writing the main book I have been trying to start for so long now.
- I have heard from others it helps when trying to keep in touch with family and friends, so I am hoping that my family and friends will be able to read mine, and maybe even start one of their own. I know I have family and friends who have amazing lives and so many words of wisdom that they could share...hopefully something will come about!
- I want to blog. It doesn't get much simplier than that. I want to write down what I'm thinking, what is going on in my life, what I'm learning, who I am...all of the above!
As for the title of my blog, well you will just have to decide for yourself why I choose that title and what that title means. I cannot wait to embark on this journey (yes I am calling starting a blog a journey...I really believe it will be) and I cannot wait to see what comes of it.
This is a warning: There might be days I post more than once, and there might be days I don't post at all. There might be posts that you feel are tmi, there might be some posts that leave you with a million questions. There might be some posts that make you cry, and a lot more others that might make you laugh (even you who is reading this and saying that I'm not that funny....haha). The point is that I hope you never know what to expect but that you always enjoy and have an open mind and open heart to what I have to say. I am rambling now, but beware, I do that as well.
We will see where this blog takes us. Thanks & Gig'em for reading!
