Free Ad Swap Action!

Hey all you lovely bloggers!
I've finally put together my spiffy new sponsor page!

I've decided to offer free ad swaps for the time being so I can help this little ol' blog of mine grow and hopefully meet many, many more sweet new bloggers in the process.
I'm pretty sure this blogging thing is here to stay and even though I've only been a blogger since June (whuuuut upppp 3 months!), I've already had so much fun.

As of right now, I have 
230+ followers via GFC
510+ followers via Pinterest and Twitter.
And last month I had 1,587 pageviews.

I've met some really great people who have amazing blogs - and I'm so excited to continue the friend making! Now I'm ready to offer some blog space to all of blogland.

All of the ads are free of course - all you have to do is fill out the PassionFruit thingy, which you can find at the top of my page in the navigation bar under "sponsor."
Or, just to make it super easy - you can click right ova heerrrrrrre and you'll be all set!

So, without further adieu.... the only question I have for you is:


RIP Tupac Shakur

Since today marks the anniversary of the death of my favorite rapper of all time, 
I'll leave y'all with some of my favorite songs.

RIP 'Pac.
June 16, 1971 - September 13, 1996

(Warning: If you have sensitive ears and don't like curse words - don't listen. If you curse like a sailor, like me, and you love Tupac as much as I do - jam this shiz like there ain't no tomorrow!)

Sucky blogger.

So I feel like a sucky blogger as of late.
Ok, I have been a sucky blogger as of late. I know.
No need to remind me. I get it.
I've completely fallen off the face of the blogosphere - but never fear my friends, I have returned!

And we've got so much to talk about!

From mid August till now I've been pulled in every direction possible.
First, it was a trip out of town to Galveston beach before classes started.
Then classes started.
Next, homework and studying happened.
Then football season occurred. FOOTBALL SEASON, PEOPLE!
Have I ever told you guys how much I freaking LOVE football season?
I haven't? Or maybe I have. I can't remember.
But I most certainly do love it. It's like the highs of life are over when football season is over.
Football, man.
It's a big thing around here.

Ok, where was I?
Oh yeah - after the football watching, and beer drinking, and wing eating....
There was a dog who got an allergic reaction to flea bites, and then developed a really bad hotspot.
And then there were dogs who wore shoes.
There was reading and more homework.
And lab write ups (that group lab partners didn't do their fair share of!).
And finally, there's been mucho politics. Politics galore up in this house! I've become addicted to reading the news, watching the news, tweeting and facebooking the news... It's a wee bit ridiculous.
But hey - it's my country's future, man!

So anyways, all of this finally brings me to today.
What an awesome day today was.
Yesterday I was thinking "hey, maybe if I put some rain-x on my windshield, it will rain or something."
You know, like when you're at a restaurant and your food is taking forever so someone goes to the bathroom and it's there before they get back. Yeah, like that.
I didn't actually ever put the rain-x on my windshield, but today on my way to class about 3 minutes down the road - I kid you not - it's starts pouring like never before!
I mean the rain was coming down so hard I could barely see the lines on the road and I hydroplaned a couple times. Scary! But I'm so happy it's finally raining!
And you guys know how much I love rain. :) We've needed it so badly lately, so it was definitely a nice surprise.

The class I had today was Chemistry (lecture and lab) and I cannot say enough good things about my chemistry professor. I took her for Intro to Chem last semester and she literally explains things like you're five. I mean, if you can't pass that class with an A, you seriously need to drop out of college. She taught the lecture part last semester and we had a different professor for the lab part. He SUCKED. He was hard to understand, didn't explain anything at all, and was so rude. But THIS semester, for Chem I,
my professor is teaching not only the lecture but also the lab as well, and today was our first lab. She is probably one of the best, if not THE best professor I've ever had.
I swear - she makes me want to be a chemistry major! She's that darn good.

After class, I picked up some pizza rolls on the way home and when I got to the apartment I was definitely in for another surprise!
The boyfriend was in the middle of cleaning the ENTIRE house! I was so thrilled! It was all spick and span - he even cleaned the fan blades. The fan blades, people.
What more could you ask for?
Well I could have asked for folded laundry, but a clean house and clean fan blades is good enough babe. Good enough. :)

Oh - and I almost forgot to mention - I finally got my first VoxBox from Influenster today!
It's a Naturals VoxBox, so all of the products are made with natural, organic ingredients or materials.
I can't wait to test out the products and see which ones are my favorites.

So, for now, that's all I have. But I will be back on my blogger grind tomorrow and hopefully every day from now on.
Ok, maybe every other day. ;)
Peace out peeeeeeeeps!


Blog Hoppity Hop!

Holy cow guys!
I can't believe it's almost been a whole month since my last blog post!
I've been a very naughty, naughty blogger, and for that - I apologize.
Seems like life has gotten the best of me and has kept me super busy lately - but I see that as a good thing! It just means I've got so much more to blog about and share with you all.
Doesn't that sound exciting?
I think yes. 
I'll be busy with class and a lab tomorrow, but I promise to have a new blog post up by Friday at the very latest.
We've got so much to talk about!

In the meantime though - here's a fabulous blog hop (don't you just love those!?) for you to check out!
Make sure to check out all the awesome co-hosts and go follow a blog or two - or 20! :)

Last month was a massive success with Blogworking Wednesday! It was so exciting to see 110 blogs that linked up! The giveaway was a massive success too! 

The last time we hosted this blog hop, there was 130 links which is amazing!! So spread the word so hopefully we can beat that!

For now, this blog hop will remain a monthly blog hop, but it may go biweekly or even weekly in the future. 

A little history of the blog hop from Paige:

"When I first started blogging, my favorite thing was finding new blogs that I just loved and girls that I connected with! So, the idea of "blogworking" which plays on the word "networking" came into play. Whenever my husband asked what I was doing when I was looking for new blogs, I'd tell him I was blog-working. Soon after, the idea of a blog hop popped into mind and you have what you see today."

These lovely ladies are the cohosts of the blog hop, so please go check out their blogs and follow them!
