sad face

Hi. This is not a new picture.
And for real, I have like 3 blog posts all planned out, but my computer is being just plain stupid. It won't let me upload pictures. Urgh. So once I figure it out, there will be lots of new posts, I'm sorry for being uber lame.
I just wanted to let ya'll know I'm alive, and I miss posting because of my stupidness.

MMH #14

Eek! I'm so excited to be back.
Not that I didn't have a spectacular time, cause I did, but I shall save that for my next post. As I was trying to figure out how to say "I'm baaaack!" I realized I haven't done a Monday Must-Haves in foreva so here it goes!

1. Just a Kiss- Lady Antebellum 
One of the sweetest songs I've ever heard.

2. Barefoot Blue Jean Night- Jake Owen
The Anthem of Summer. Plus he's... uh... gorgeous. 

3. Today is Your Day (Why Not)- Shania Twain 
Who else was totally in love with Shania as a child? Was it really just me? She's definitely my girl crush. 

OK. Another thing is that I deeply apologize for not getting the giveaway stuff out. I had it all ready before I left, but my Mudder forgetted about it. 
More stuff later!!

gooone, like frank sinatra. like elvis and his mom.

Once again, I've been a bad blogger. Oh well. You'll get over it I think. I've had to work... goodness I hate work. Ok, scratch that. I love my job, I hate getting up and not going to the beach. Yeah. That sounds better. 
Actually, I'm going to be gone ALLLLL next week. I know, know, I'm horrible. Buuut I do have a life. I'm going to Mancelona Camp!!!! *INSERT TOOTHY GRIN* So I will talk to you all in... I don't know. Awhile.

Well, Scarlett and I decided that since we had two people enter our lovely giveaway that we would just send stuff to both of you!
Sooo the winner(s) of our first ever giveaway is:
Michelle of Locked Out
Paige of Paige Renae

So what I'm going to do is ask both of you to comment on here with your addresses, and I'll see them. I won't publish the comment. This'll be the easiest way seeing as I can't get into my stupid email. Sooo thank you my dears, we're sooo excited to send your stuff out to you. Until then, watch this:

Don't worry. I have been wearing clothes, tho half the time I'd like to run around naked. Kidding... kind of. Or at least just run around in my underwear. I'm telling ya, don't come to my house unexpected, because chances are you're gonna see me without pants on.
Actually, funny story. My sister's person, Tanner, randomly came over and I had just gotten home from work. When I get home from work I usually take off my pants and all jewelry. Cause for as much as I love clothes, I love taking them off more. Annnnyways, I was sitting in the dining room just chillin' and here he comes. I had to yell at him to turn around and I rushed into the bathroom where I had dropped my clothes. So yeah. Tell me before you come. Cause if not I'll be naked. 

Guess who's going to the Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Part 2 premiere at midnight?
Yeah. Me. Annnd I'm purchasing the above cardigan.
Nerd, I am.

seagull, don't go eating his eyes out!

Just stopping to let you know that, yes, I am alive. 
I like to make excuses but you all know it just means I haven't had much time. I like my sleep, and when I get home from work I sleep. It's not like I do anything. Except for Tuesday. Boy was Tuesday a glorious day. It was my first day off in 5 days. It was much needed.
I went to the beach at 11, stayed till 4. My favorite kind of day. Now it was only my second or third time wearing my new bathing suit (that gives you a big clue as to how much I've been working my butt off!) and that bathing suit is cut differently than my old one. Therefore I have a major burn on my rump. It's definitely cute. But I'll live with it if it means I can go to the beach. 

This is an extra little picture thrown in to show you how crazy my person is, and for that matter all the guys around him. Hunter let us bury him (I helped a teensy weensy bit), and then cover up his head. After that we threw chips all over him to see if the seagulls would land on him and eat the chips. They did. It was a riot.

baby, you're a firework

Happy Independence Day people of America, and other countries. 
There will probably be pictures tomorrow of my eventful day, but I didn't have time to take pictures this morning seeing as how I have to work in a half hour or so. And I won't get off till 8. My first 9 hour shift. I may go insane with the amount of fudgies*. 
In the meantime have much hotdogs and watermelon. Dress in tacky red, white, and blue. And sing "Fireworks" by Katy Perry until your hearts desire. 

*If you are a non-Michigander you obviously don't know what a fudgie is... therefore it makes you one. Mackinaw City (the place I work) is known for their fudge, and tourists come for the fudge. They literally buy pounds and pounds of it. So, tourists, are fudgies.

 Day four of hectic work schedule, and I'm starting to get a week bit cranky. I miss my friends, I miss the beach, I miss having a life and wearing shorts and flip flops. But mostly, I miss having a life. I probably shouldn't be complaining about working, seeing as a lot of people can't find jobs, but sometimes it sucks. Let's be honest here. 
So I decided to go to the beach at 9. It was a little chilly (although it was in the 80's today!! finally!!) so we didn't stay long. Buuut there was, of course, enough time to snap a couple of pictures. Yippee. 
Happy Weekend. 
P.S. I really do love you guys. Really, truly.

chubby bunny

 Delia's Skinny Jeans (Thrifted); White Collar Sideshow Tee (Big Ticket Festival, via Scar); White Flatts (Payless Children's Department circa 2006)

People of the Internet:
I'm tired. I'm on day 3 of working 5 days in a row, and I don't know if I can make the rest of them. The worst part has been that Thursday I worked 11-7, Friday 2-10, Saturday 10-6, Sunday 2-10, and Monday 11-8. So basically I get home late (cause remember it takes about a half hour to get home from work) and the next day wake up early. I'm not a fan. 
Also, today was a "I look hideous in every single outfit I put on" day. I seriously tried on maybe 5 outfits. I feel pretty brave for posting my pictures, cause I wasn't even fully satisfied with how I looked in this. 
So I have a story for you all. 
I'm at work today, and as some of you may remember I sell Pandora. I'm working with my boss with this lady who's about to purchase a Pandora bead. My boss hands me the bead to go and ring up, and this is what the customer does:
She pats me on the head.
Yes. You read that right.
She pats my freaking head! Like I'm a four year old. 
And here's what she says
"Aren't you just adorable?" 
I thought of a numerous amount of things I could have said to her, but I did the Lauren thing and just shut up. I smiled. And rung up her bead. But, for real, people? How is that socially acceptable to pat anyone above the age of 5 on the head? It's just not. 
So if any of you bloggers every meet me, I'll knock you out if you pat me on the head cause that's just not cool. At all. Period. EVER.

kitty kitty kitty

This is my cat every morning when I start working on my blog. 
She only wants to cuddle when I'm on my laptop, so it's sort of a pain, but I secretly love it. I just wanted to give a quick little post telling ya'll to stick around because Scar and I have an awesome idea for our blogs. But, just a heads up, if you read my blog and don't follow me, or read hers and don't follow her you could be missing out. So follow us. I know it sounds shallow that I know how many followers I have (5!! Thank you very much!) but it really is encouraging to know that someone is reading my jumble of words. As a sort of new blogger it's really hard to keep going when you feel like you're talking to yourself. 
So be prepared followers of Ivory Giraffes, you're gonna be shocked and amazed at the awesomeness that is about to emerge. 
Also, I apologize about the poor editing skills on that first picture but I doubted you guys wanted to see my bra.
