Like I want one so bad that I would consider actually driving the the three and a half hours to Palo Alto where the nearest Sprinkles is...if I could convince someone to come with me...(Jil...that means YOU!!)
Oh and FYI blog world it may sound ridiculous but the vanilla cupcakes are THE best...yeah I know vanilla doesn't sound that good...but they are swoon-worthy yummy...

Are you a book slave? No I do not mean do you live your life around reading great books, I mean do you go to college and spend ridiculous amounts of cash on textbooks that in all actuality cost about $10 bones to produce! Yeah, I do too. It is insane. It pisses me off every single semester...I spend anywhere from $400-$700 bucks on my books alone (not mentioning the outrageous price of tuition) anyways...*climbs off soapbox*
My mom pretty much is awesome. She hipped me to some online textbook rental sites she heard about through the grapevine, and let me tell you, these sites have pretty much saved my life this semester! I feel like being nice and sharing this info with my like ten readers (all of which who never comment...and yes that was a guilt-trip)...
This semester alone my books would have bled me dry, they would have been between $600-$650 bones if I purchased them at the campus bookstore or on Amazon (don't get me wrong I worship Amazon...but their textbooks are way overpriced as well). I went to http://www.chegg.com/ and I rented all of my books and they came to a heavenly total of $200 dollars!!! Including shipping!!! I am over-excited and using WAY too many exclamation points!!!!!

Yeah, no, WRONG! Well, I survived stats. Math and I have both moved on and are very happy apart. Well, math is anyhow. I was. I was tick tocking along fully satisfied in my major...until Tuesday morning at 11 o'clock.
This is when I waltzed into my (REQUIRED) biological psychology class. This is when I found out that I would be spending the next five months dissecting and studying a sheep brain. Yep, you heard me right! SHEEP BRAIN!
Suffice it to say I miss math and regret the entire break up...

Question #1: For a person you loved deeply, would you be willing to move to a distant country knowing there would be little chance of seeing your friends and family again?
Answer #1: Honestly, no. Everyone wants to eventually find someone to share their life with (whether married or just long term). However, there is no way that I would give up the amazing love that I receive from family and friends just for one other person. It would be hard to let go of a man that I deeply loved but, then I would just think that anyone who knows me well knows how much of a family person I am and would never ask that of me. I could not imagine being happy in a life that does not include the people who I am close to. Such as these folks...
Example #1:this amazing little person who is
but I still love them and can count on them for anything.
now this is me and my oldest pal.
we have been soul sisters since like 8th grade.
as you can see she makes AWESOME picture faces.
she is my bestest...end of story.
speaking of awesome picture faces...
this gal is my MUCH older and wiser confidant (love ya Jily)
I am pretty sure that sometimes we are the same person
ya know, great minds and all that jazz.
Anywho...she is an honorary member o' my family
Lucky her, right?
Now see...who in their right mind would up and take off without knowing if they were to see these people again? Yep, that is correct...no one!
*Not one single person gave me permision to post their pictures...suckers!
**And no I do not know why the spacing on the last two is all funky...but I do know that I spent like an hour trying to fix it!

So head on over and check it out. You can thank me later...http://www.etsy.com/.
Just be careful because it is like crack...not that I have ever tried crack...but I am assuming the two are pretty similar. Anyone know if angels sing 'Hallelujah' after a hit or two off the crack pipe? Anyone?...Anyone?

So I am pretty sure that I love Paula Deen in a big way. Like it is getting serious between the two of us...it might be time to take that next step. You know...buying a cookbook instead of thieving all of her recipes from Thefoodnetwork.com! Last night I made the most delicious lime-Dijon chicken (only I nixed the Dijon because it smelled odd and threw in some scrumptious honey mustard) so technically it was lime-honey mustard chicken but whatever it is called it made my stomach very happy. Between the chicken and her double-chocolate-ooey-gooey-butter cake the woman is pretty much saint-like. Plus her accent is awesome and she is totally off her rocker in a 'crazy grandma' kind of way.
Maybe I will turn this blog into one where I buy up all of Saint Paula's cookbooks and cook my way through them in 365 days! Does that sound familiar? I have no clue as to why that may be. I totally did not steal that idea from any movie starring Meryl Streep with a crazy accent...
