Get your groove on and confess...

It's Confessional Friday y'all...
A Blonde Ambition
1. I am SO exhausted. It's a good exhausted though. I feel like my friends all got together and decided to have life milestones the same week! WHAT A FUN WEEK THOUGH!!! 
My Little's Rehearsal Dinner

At my Little's Wedding 

Kross, my Bestie's newest addition
2. I am SSSOOO ready for Fall. Y'all it is still averaging in the 90s in Oklahoma and this girl is ready for some boots and sweaters!

3. I am saddened by the SI articles covering OSU football. Saddened that their "journalism" would be so poor. Most of all I am saddened at the fact that the coach that all of accusations happened under is STILL coaching and NO ONE is investigating him. 

4. I am GIDDY that the new Kings of Leon album comes out next week! There may be some fangirling from me on Tuesday!

5. I just downloaded the new iPhone update. Jury is still out but I will say it just reminds me of how much I hate change. 

Now lets groove...

The first artist holds a special place in my heart! He's a former student and OH SO talented!!! Buy his EP on iTunes... its incredible

The Spectacular Now -Tim Tharp

  • Paperback: 304 pages
Book Summary:
SUTTER KEELY. HE’S the guy you want at your party. He’ll get everyone dancing. He’ ll get everyone in your parents’ pool. Okay, so he’s not exactly a shining academic star. He has no plans for college and will probably end up folding men’s shirts for a living. But there are plenty of ladies in town, and with the help of Dean Martin and Seagram’s V.O., life’s pretty fabuloso, actually.
Until the morning he wakes up on a random front lawn, and he meets Aimee. Aimee’s clueless. Aimee is a social disaster. Aimee needs help, and it’s up to the Sutterman to show Aimee a splendiferous time and then let her go forth and prosper. But Aimee’s not like other girls, and before long he’s in way over his head. For the first time in his life, he has the power to make a difference in someone else’s life—or ruin it forever.

My thoughts
So, full disclosure I read about this book in a Style magazine. I know, VAPID much! I saw that Tim Tharp was the author and knowing that he is an Oklahoma boy I knew I should a least check it out! And I am SO thankful I did! What am incredible book! When reading the book back summary I was thinking this may be a little too cliche. It was and then it wasn't. You literally want to strangle Sutter at pretty much every point of the book and you also want to slap some sense into Sutter and Aimee. This book made me grateful for the high school experience that I had. The regular abuse of alcohol was a little off putting and made me high school teacher heart quite sad. In the end though you just want the best for Aimee and for Sutter. I would have liked to see another ending (I really am a romantic at heart) but the ending that was presented was probably best! Definitely check this one out! 

Happy Reading, Sugars

Random Thoughts...

Have you ever felt randomly antsy? I mean the kind of antsy that lasts not for a few hours but for days? I am currently in an antsy phase! Why they need to tell you this? It's more of the disclaimer than anything! The post you are getting ready to read is antsy... and a tad random! I feel that it conveys my life at this moment. So, without further adieu...

First, I am linking up with Kelly's Korner for your FAVE tailgating recipe! Who doesn't LOVE a good tailgate! I may be tarred and feathered for saying this but sometimes I love the tailgating more than the actual game... gasp! I know! I frequently volunteer to bring dessert to our little football soirees! My absolute fave to bring is cinnamon roll cake! People just go hog wild for it and it's perfect for fall!

Recipe Here...

Now, onto confessions...
