  1. Um, No Diggity is not a guilty pleasure. It is a pleasure and to this day, despite not having listened to it for years, I still know all the words to the song. No diggity, no doubt. ;)

    1. LOL. I was rocking to it in my car yesterday.

    2. ditto mariaana!! it was on the now two cd which i LOVED

  2. Sailor Moon is so awesome! I've been trying to get my hands on the entire subbed series for literally YEARS.

    1. Sailor Moon is amazing. I've been a big fan of the show for a long time. I wish I had the series on DVD too. My best friend has it in Japanese with the subtitles.

      Have you ever seen the live action show? It's so bad, but is so amazing.

  3. I'm so glad someone else understands the awesomeness of Sailor Moon! :)
    I also have TMJ which sucks, so I understand your pain
    Btw. Your guilty pleasure playlist is fantastic!

    1. I love finding people that like Sailor Moon!

      How do you deal with your TMJ? I'm always trying to find out how others deal with having it.


  4. um, i love that you carry a lego man with you everywhere. love it.
    xx jes,

  5. I'm loving all of this...You are awesome. And I'm loving that you <3 The Walking Dead and Arrested Development...Those are two of my faves, too!

  6. I totally love Arrested Development too! Wittiest, funniest tv show of all time. It's crazy how I can watch an episode for the fourth time and catch something I didn't the first time. Although I don't love walking dead... too gory for me. I can't handle the bloody stuff!

    new follower :)

    1. I know! I love re-watching it because of that. There is always something new to catch. I cannot wait for the episodes coming to Netflix.

      "I don't want no part of yo' tight-ass country club, ya freak bitch!"

  7. i'm so proud/jealous that you did that europe trip. i wish i had done that before i got married. not as an independence thing though - just money wise it doesn't seem like it will be possible now after the wedding!! hope you loved it!

    i'm sad to click 'publish' because the "this is how we do it song" will turn off :(

    1. It really wasn't as much money as you'd think it would be. We (My best friend and I) spent under $2,500 each booking through Cosmos for our flights (New York to London & back), hotels, transportation, some meals & excursions. I mean we spent more money than that because we ate some crazy meals, did a lot of extra excursions and bought lots of souvenirs.

      Honestly, when you get a chance go. It was an amazing trip and was worth everything. I wish I could afford to go on another Europe adventures.

      LOL. I would have waited for the song to finish.

  8. weezer and shaun of the dead! toats my friend, toats ;)

    glad to have you participating!

    1. =W=

      Thank you, Gentri & Kaitlyn for making this happen!

  9. You are everything that is cool and I am envious. (Your tattoo, for example? Awesome.) Definitely following you. :) How's being a librarian, by the way? I'm having an early life crisis where I've realized I don't want to be a teacher anymore and have given a bit of thought to getting a master's to be a librarian.

    Excited to get to know you! :)

    1. Aw! Thank you!

      I love being a librarian. Becoming a librarian was honestly one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life.

      I had a crisis kind of like yours. I actually went to school to be a school librarian and the semester before my internship I decided that I didn't want to work in a school and that I wanted to be a poor happy public librarian, instead of a frustrated well paid school librarian. So after a lot of tears, a handful of conversations with boyfriend and parents I e-mailed my adviser and told her I was going public.

      What kind of librarian do you think you want to be?

  10. Um, hi. I will be 25 next year. Guess what I will be gifting myself?! (thanks to you. haha!)
    and I LOVE that Roswell is on your list of favorite tv shows! I had never watched it until last December. I finished all 3 seasons in no time at all! LOVED it!

    1. Do it! It was worth every penny I spent. Everyone I know is jealous that Erin & I had our quarter life crises traveling around Europe.

      Roswell is amazing. I'm still pissed Tess killed Alex. I still have the hots for Michael. And I still wish that there would have been more seasons.

  11. Zombies. Best choice ever. And I 100% agree... glitter makes everything better!

    1. Zombies are the best, as long as they aren't trying to eat you. :-D

      I love glitter. My boyfriend had banned me from using glitter but I don't listen to anything he says.

  12. I have an Alabama shot glass, if you'd like it!! Shoot me an email!! haha! I'm not ur partner, but I have no use for it and it was going to the garage sale anywho!

  13. I love your taste in movies and television shows. I'm a huge zombie buff, myself.

  14. found you through the link up... what a great list! i totally collect mugs and nail polish too... i have a huge obsession :)

  15. I love Gilmore Girls and Sailor Moon.
