I think I'll just do a little recap of what I received for Christmas and my birthday.

I didn't receive much for either but I was given money (which will pretty much be used towards repaying student loans). For Christmas I was given some "pants" (more like leggings with a zipper-fly, back pockets, and fun embelishments...I'm afraid Lindsay Lohan might try to steal them from me), a sweater, camera tripod, and a bag of random little goodies.

On my birthday I was given a pink Snuggie! My mom was a bit bum that she couldn't find a leopard print one (because I totes adore leopard print) buuut I love the pink one more because some of the proceeds go towards Breast Cancer Research (my mom's been clear of breast cancer for 2 years now)...the color is just a bonus. :)

But for real, I've been rocking that Snuggie around the house ever since I opened it. It's freakin' cold around here and my Snuggie-wuggie keeps me nice and toasty!

You know what I really love (food wise that is)?


I love tacos.

And I really love Taco Bell.

Yo quiero Taco Bell. Srsly.

Barbie Song

Back in the eeearly 90's (or maybe even '89) I had a Barbie that was like a rock star Barbie. She had clothes and a guitar that had glow-in-the-dark spots all over. She also came with a cassette tape that had an awesome song on it that went something like:

Let your light shine
For everyone to see
Light bright (or maybe "light shine" ?)
Shine for you and me

I've been trying to find the song online and thought for sure that someone would have posted it on Youtube...but no luck there. :(

I wish I could find that darn cassette tape! Ugh, that song was incredible!

Recent Dollar Tree Haul

This isn't anything really exciting but what the heck!

Last week I went to Dollar Tree hoping to find some Vital Radiance products but my location didn't have any. :(

But I did buy some apple scented shampoo.

I saw that they had the Maybelline Dream Mousse eye shadow in Black Spice so I had to get it! I heard that it had rainbow glitter in it, which of course made me think of Urban Decay's original Oil Slick (love love love!), so I had to have it. I haven't really tried it yet but I'm hoping it'll be at least a good base. My store only had two colors of the Maybelline Wet Shine gloss in stock (neither had color names on them), a light pinky-mauve with silver shimmer (shown) and a light orange sherbert with silver shimmer. I've always loved the Wet Shine Diamond lipsticks so I figured I'd like the gloss since I'm a gloss girl. I only bought the pinky-mauve but I kind of wish I had bought the orange sherbert one as well. The pink one is really pretty when worn but it does have a gritty texture (more so than the lipsticks). I personally don't mind the texture but I know a lot of people out there dislike it when lip products are gritty.

And then I bought some headphones. I hate, hate, HATE (!!!!!!) those stupid earbuds!!! Can't stand them but they seem to be the only option available under $20 at most stores. The headphones are super flimsy and lightweight so they aren't really great if you're moving around (but I mostly listen to my iPod at night when I'm in bed so it's not that big of a deal to me). Though they are more quiet than the earbuds that come with an iPod. I have to turn the volume up quite a bit more to get the same loudness...but the overall quality of sound is so much better than the earbuds (and that's mainly what I the comfort).

Guess who saw the amazingly, fantabulously, incredibly, ~*pippinsnazzle-dazzley*~, phenomenal, ferociously, delish Cheap Trick...

ME!!!!! I ended up winning tickets to see them, which made it EVEN better!

It was awesome!!! Though I was seriously hoping that they would play "In The Street" a.k.a. the "That 70's Show" theme song...but they didn't. :( I was all ready to rock out to it too. I could imagine the whole crowd reenacting the opening credits of the show when the cast is in the Vista Cruiser singing along and rocking out to the song. That would've been epic. But the little opening audio montage before the band came on stage had a snippet of the theme song, which was really cool to hear regardless, haha.

But again, the show was incredible!!! :) :D :)

Plus seeing bb Bun E. has really completed my year! But unfortunately there was no sign of my beloved Godwin Alexander. :( However Bret Michael's body guard Big John was there (I should have tracked him down to try to get some kind of hook up to be on the next season of "Rock of Love") as well as Scott Hamilton, Larry David, 2 Foot Fred, and no telling who else!
