Happy As Can Bee


______Hey, how many pictures can I take where I'm looking to the side and not smiling? Apparently all of them! Sorry for the angry/fierce stares of doom that I've got going on. I promise I'm in a happy mood. I'm just as happy as a jubilent little bumblebee in a hive full of honey. No, really--I'm all done with exams and my freshman year of college, so what excuse would I have to not be happy? Exactly. These pictures are merely an illusion. A lie. A stripe-y and yellow-y lie.

______Last night, I saw The Avengers with two friends and my brother and it was amazing. I'm not going to say anything in case any of you haven't seen it yet, but yeah, it was just plain ballin'. And there was so much man eye-candy (Captain America's bootay, anyone? Or how about Hawkeye's perfectly sculpted arms?). And Robert Downey Jr. was his precious and witty self as usual, of course. I'll stop here and spare you any more ramblings before things get too out of hand.

______Even earlier on Thursday, mother dearest and I went out to do a little shopping and got pedicures for the first time in what seemed like months. The guy who gave me mine was sort of hilarious--he said some silly things, one of them being about the massage chair: "You can turn off the butt massage with the button at the bottom. The chair tends to get a little perverted. It has a mind of its own." He spit out a bunch of other clever things, too. I don't know, I just appreciate when people actually have personalities; it seems that they can be hard to find in people these days. Maybe it's just me. I always try to be happy and friendly, and it's nice when someone else does it in return! Heck, sometimes if a cashier or a worker seems bored with their life, I'll tell them that their hair is really pretty or that I love their earrings or something with the hopes that it will cheer them up and maybe make them a little more friendlier in the future. 

______Anyway, I hope that everyone is having a nice start to their summer (or end to their school year... or just a generally nice time)!

Congrats on finishing your exams and on owning the most perfect striped dress!!

I saw the avengers this weekend too, and how could you forget to mention the gorgeousness of Chris Hemsworth... I mean, the eyes, the hair, the arms... I die.

Chic on the Cheap

LOVE the dress. The stripes look great on you. Sometimes, these stripes can be tricky because they make a person look wider, but you are so skinny that you can pull them off well. :) LOVELOVELOVELOVE the shoes, especially. Neon kicks are a must.
