It arrived in my inbox yesterday...
The Glee audition e-mail.

I started to dance up and down and immediately went on to read the email in its entirety three and a half times.  Now, I must prepare my audition video and send it in.  O.M.Glee.  I, of course, will keep you all updated.

I also heard from GG that Taylor Swift has been seen with two guys -- on a lunch date again with Taylor Lautner (yay!) and out with Cory Monteith (Finn from Glee).  Either way, she wins.  I am personally calling for Team Jacob just because I love the name T-Squared.

And now I must end this post briefly... Anthony, my fave southern designer on PR, was recently kicked off.  I knew that he was not going to make it to Bryant Park, but just loved his comments and a lot of his work.  I I believe that he could design a dress for me, and then we could go out and eat some fried chicken together.  I will def be looking for his clothing line.

Two Thoughts on a Friday

So it is almost the beginning of April, and I am still wearing boots.  This def makes the point of my new pedi almost as obsolete as a tape player.  I am ready for the rain to go away and for the sun to come out and shine down on us.  A few extra degrees wouldn't hurt either.

I am excited today for two reasons: 
1. I am going to eat lunch with a good friend I have not seen in a long time - don't you just love catching up?  I think it could be a hobby of mine.  I love keeping in touch with my friends, and even when it has been several months, we can pick up right where left out.  And another amazing thing about this lunch... we are going to my fave sush place - Nam.  (Translation: Favorite sushi place - Nama)

2. I am going to get my hair trimmed.  You may think this is ridic, but I really don't care.  I love going to Salon Visage because they do such a fab job and I feel like a celeb whenever I am there.  I have recently switched to the Market Square location, and love it because it is more laid back and my stylists are the bomb.

Oh yes - and the Vols are playing in the Sweet 16.
MGB tells me that I will have to start liking basketball a lot more once we are married.  I mean, I understand that marriage is about compromise... but I just can't see him starting to watch Project Runway.  Maybe with time, it's just so amazing.

Speaking of Project Runway, I missed last night's episode, so will be blogging about that at a later date.  Please don't tell me who gets kicked off.  I also think that Maya and Mila look exactly alike...do you agree?  One of them has got to go soon.  And Grey's Anatomy was a little less than thrilling last night.  Yes, yes, I still watch Grey's and I think it is still very good.  But I am just tired of everyone dating McSteamy - I mean he is good looking, but that story line is over played.

(In other personal news - my words with friends is back and running.  I even had to go to the Apple Store for help, so hit me up if you like to play.)

Elevators and Free Swag

Well, my first Pink Lady post per my engagement is up - check it out.  (Side note, it is rather cheesy, but very fun.)

I have come to the realization that there are two types of etiquette that need to be dealt with - elevator and gym.  The other day I was patiently waiting to pump some iron (actually just about ten pounds, but that is more than zero) while Mr. Macho was sitting on the same machine I needed to use just chatting away on his cell phone about the kegger he was going to that night.  Um excuse me... get off the machine if you are not using it.  After he took ANOTHER phone call, he finally got up and I quickly swooped in to get the machine.  I carefully watched Mr. Macho go to another machine (thankfully, it was one that has too many bells and whistles for me) and he proceeded to stay on the cell phone.  Ridic.  And elevators... in my new swanky office building I have the privilege of riding elevators each and every day.  Don't you just hate when someone gets on before you get off?  I got side swiped by a foreign exchange student yesterday who was wearing "a not so comfortable to the skin" fabric.  If only I had my own elevator that goes directly to my office, just like Serena has one to her penthouse in GG.

So I tried to get into Dancing with the Stars last night, and just could not do it.  I know, tons of celebs dancing in sequins... it does seem as if I would love this show.  Did you have any favorites from last night?  I do like Niecy Nash from Clean House though... I am pulling for her to win it all.

And today I am so excited because UT is giving away FREE food - and who doesn't love free swag?  If you are in Knoxville, you def have to check out these deals:
- Today: Free Pizza Hut Breadsticks (Bomb - lived on these freshmen year in Humes Hall)
-Tomorrow: Free Smoothies at the gym
- Thursday: Free Pancakes... one of my fave foods.  Can't wait to go over to IHOP for these. 
If you would like to join me, just send me a note and we can go and get free swag together.

Letter to the Edtior and Oscar Curse

Basically, I am famous. Want to know why? No, it's not because I have a blog. Well that is part of it... but I am a published author. Now, I am going a little over the top here because I was just published in The Daily Beacon, BUT it is a great honor and if you are on UT's campus, you must check it out. It's a letter to the editor. If you don't have the privilege of living in God's country, then check it out here.

I also want to update all of you that I will be chronicling my engagement over on The Pink Book Blog. My boss wants brides across the country to relate to my story, so if you love weddings, stories or just me, be sure to follow my stories. I will keep the links updated on this blog as well.

So, I was perusing my twitter feed the other day and noticed a very interesting tweet by a friend - he was talking about an article he found that said people who engage in deeper conversation compared to small talk are actually happier and healthier. I got to thinking about that - and I completely agree. How many people do you have small talk with on a daily basis? I mean, it's necessary if it's with that person you ride the elevator with every morning. But what if you asked them out of the blue a question to get to know them more? It will probably make their day brighter, and you have found a new network within the office and also a potential friend.

Did you know that Dunkin Donuts is giving away free coffee on Mondays for the rest of this month? You must go check it out now...or actually on Monday. I got mine this past week and also had to get a caffeine fix for today. Fridays are so cruel, you just want to relax, take a long weekend, and not answer your e-mail. But instead you trudge to work and make it rain... at least I have to have a coffee to make this work.

Has anyone seen Brad and Angie lately? I was so disappointed that they were not at the Oscars. They probably were in a third world country adopting another child and then flying off on a private jet drinking champagne. Oh the life.

And on another note... Jesse James is an idiot. Poor Sandra Bullock has fallen under the Oscar curse. What is the Oscar curse you may say? If you are asking this then you really don't know anything about celebs, but I will enlighten you anyways. It is the curse that happen to these beautiful actresses who win the Oscar for Best (Supporting) Actress, and then their personal lives start to fall apart. Look at Reese Witherspoon, Halle Berry, Kate Winslet, Hilary Swank. These women are bigger than life, and then their husbands/boyfriends pull a Tiger Woods. I am pulling for you Sandra!

Fashion Forward

Lately I have not been sleeping well.  I don't know if it's the new added excitement in my life or that I have been drinking more caffeine closer to bed time, but it (meaning sleep) is just not working for me.  A fab person always needs their beauty sleep (that goes for you guys as well), so tonight I am going to try some hot tea (decaf, of course) before bed.  But one good thing about my irregular sleep patterns is that I have time to think about upcoming blog posts.  So this morning around 3:30 am I decided to dedicate a post to fashion, both for males and females.

The other night I went to dinner with some friends and one of my guy friends was sporting an awesome cardigan.  I love this look on guys - it adds a little dressiness to a typical button down and jeans look.  This look comes from Banana Republic, but you can always find a more economical version at Old Navy, Target or even TJ Maxx. 

PLEASE remember... NEVER wear skinny jeans unless you are a Jonas Brother.  Most southern girls are not into a guy who has tighter jeans on than she does.  And if she is, chances are she is a transplant who was raised north of the Mason Dixon line.

For girls... I am loving big, chunky watches.  Michael Kors has some great new options out there -- this is one of my favorites:

You can get these anywhere as well.  Be sure to just wear this on one arm, and limit your other arm to one bracelet.

These looks are perfect for a night out on the town or a fun Sunday Brunch at Gourmet Market.  If you go to brunch, you MUST check out the chocolate chip pancakes.  If you have any sleep remedies to share, please let me know ASAP.  Also, if you need any fashion advice, leave word with my assistant and I will back to you ASAP.

Spring & Love Story

Where is spring?  I am so tired of wearing coats and scarves everywhere, the snow dustings and my pale skin.  Wait, scratch the last one... I'm always pale and now I know that my pale skin is def in because of the Cullen (the vampire family if you are not in the know) craze happening in America.  But seriously, I am so ready for skirts, sandals and sitting on restaurant patios.

Well - something big happened in my life this weekend - just as Taylor Swift sang in her hit Love Story, I had my romeo get down on one knee and I of course said YES!  Thanks to all my loyal readers for your love.  We are very excited!  If you want deets, just call me or wait for our knot.com page.  Then you can stalk all you want. 

I am not going to lie, I only watched some of the Oscars this year because we were partying it up with good friends and champagne to celebrate our big news.  However, I was LOVING Cameron Diaz.  She was def my pick for best dressed.  Oh, and Sandra Bullock - you go girl for Briarcrest.

At a Loss for Words

I am a little miffed at my iPhone.  I know, I said it.  But my Words with Friends has been messing up for the past week and I feel at a loss for...words.  Cheesy, I know, but is anyone else having this problem?

I have been craving a hamburger all day.  I don't know what it is, but it just sounds so good.  There is just something so magical about a burger right off the grill with gooey melted cheese plus tons of ketchup.  My favorite spot in Knoxville for a good burgers is OCI. What makes these so delic?  The serve them on english muffins, and of course you always need to get a side of the cheese bings.  If you have never heard of these said cheese bings, get in the car and drive to Knoxville.  I will personally treat you to these delactable treats.  Memphis fans - be sure to stop by Huey's.  It is the bomb.com.

Now down to the real business: my Glee audition.  I am also a little miffed at Fox right now.  After checking the website multiple times a day, I come to find that now I must sign up to receive an e-mail with details that are forthcoming.  Oh Mr. S why must you taunt me?  I am so ready to send in my audition video and be the newest cast member.  So that, my loyal blog readers, is the update about me becoming a Gleek.

And on the celeb front - the biggest night of their year is this Sunday.  Yes, I am talking about the Oscars.  I am literally counting down till I get to watch the stars parade in on the red carpet and then will be waiting with my fingers crossed that all my favorites win.  I even downloaded an Oscar app for the iPhone - yes, people, this is serious.
