Because I'm here...

Ahhhh Virginny <3

Crystal Faye giveaway... hey, that rhymes!

Normally I do not blog about giveaways but this is one you can't miss...

Are they not the cutest things ever???

So go enter. Or don't. I'd prefer you don't so I have a better chance.

But in case you decide to... http://www.crystalfaye.com/

And yeah, that's it for today since my sinuses are exploding in my head.

Officially Autumn...

Even though we all know football kickoff is the unofficial start to Fall, today is the beginning of Fall 2012!

So bring on the boots and scarves, apple cider, Crock Pot meals, and crunchy leaves. Oh, and that cool, fall smell in the air!

It's not about the money, money, money...

How many of you have heard of the new TLC show called Secret Princes?

(Um, hello Lord Robert Walters!)

Don't worry, no need to admit that you saw the preview for it while watching Honey Boo Boo.

Although that is when I saw it. Right as Mama sneezed for the one millionth time. And made that horrible pre-sneeze face -- probably the same face that Sugar Bear saw the night Alana was conceived.

Anyway, back to business. I am here today to make a PSA to my love...

It's ok Beau, you can tell me who you really are now.

That's it for today... Continue with your Finally Friday celebrations!

I believe in...

I believe in stealing puppy kisses whenever possible.

I believe in spending way too much money at Target.

I believe in love stories like Marshall and Lily's.

I believe in wearing clothes out of the laundry basket instead of putting them away.

I believe in drizzling chocolate over kettle popcorn.

I believe in weekend getaways.

I believe in hour long showers -- and singing the whole time.

I believe in taking tons of photos to remember the moment.

I believe in pumpkin spice anything from September 1 - Black Friday.

I believe in blogging to help the soul.

Left and right and left left...

Please tell me y'all have seen this video...

And saw this one...

You can bet that as soon as I was done watching it (and Beau went upstairs to the office), I was trying to master the gangnam style. I would have recorded my masterpiece for you but it was after 9pm on a Thursday night... which means I was bra-less... sorry I'm not sorry.

In other news, Bethany has been found! Turns out, she actually was stuck in her toilet. Kidding!!

Anyone else glad it's Friday? You know what that means, don't you... one day until COLLEGE FOOTBALL SATURDAY! Clemson's game won't be televised though ::insert ginormous sad face here::

What do you guys have fun planned for this weekend?

13 September 2012


Missing. Gone. Lost. Ignoring me.

However you want to word it.

She's not here.

I'm worried, folks. Something bad could have happened to her.

What if she fell in the toilet and is stuck?

because everyone wears sunglasses in the bathroom

Or what if a velociraptor got to her?

there's some crazy things found in NC
Where oh where did my Bethany go???

12 September 2012

If y'all jumped off a bridge...

I wouldn't follow, fools.

But if an awesome outfit showed up on Pinterest, you bet I'm on that bandwagon.

I am the proud owner of a chambray shirt and I'm super excited to recreate the pin (below) on my next day off.

Anywho... the last 24 hours have been pretty awesome. Not only did I get my new shirt but this happened last night...

They were BOTH on TV last night. I was squealing in joy -- like a fat, happy pig. Home Improvement was on TV Land (am I really that old for a show I grew up with to be on that channel??) at 7 & 7:30PM and Full House was on Nick at Nite at 8 & 8:30PM. Shows just aren't made like they used to be. Ah, the good 'ol days!

To top off those 24 hours? I woke up to see this on my phone...

Is Duke not the cutest?!? And look at his proud parents.

Happy hump day! Only 2 more days until it's Friday!!

11 September 2012


It was 11 years ago when I was sitting in math class and they asked for anyone who had parents working in the city to go to the library.

It was 11 years ago when our country came together in the midst of a terrorist attack.

It was 11 years ago when 2,983 people lost their lives, including 23 NYPD Officers, 343 FDNY Firefighters, and 1 bomb-sniffing dog.




Sgt. David Lim of Port Authority Police with his explosive detection dog, Sirius, who lost his life in the 9/11 attacks.
A view of the new towers and reflecing pools from the air.
I cry every time I see this.

May we all take a moment today to think about those who lost their lives and the families that they left behind. Let's also think about the troops fighting overseas for our freedom so we can live the lives we have.

Happy Blogiversary to me!

Today marks one year of blogging.

One year of documenting my life on the world-wide web.

I had started 90 Percent Blonde after over a year of reading other blogs and never, ever thought anyone would want to read what I had to say. But YOU lovely followers do read what I have to say (or you visit my page, at least). One thing that I never expected a year ago was the friendships I'd make through this. I am blessed to have you ladies in my life!

So thank you - each and every one of you - for making my blog what it is today. I couldn't have done it without you all!

I think Clemson knew and wanted to help celebrate by slaughtering Ball State on Saturday. Spencer Benton even particiated in the action and walked away with an ACC record.

But what kind of blogger would I be if I didn't celebrate with my readers??
So here you go...

Just when you think you've seen it all...

You come across this on etsy...

I know y'all want to buy it for your living rooms but it sold on December 3, 2011. I wonder who got this beauty for Christmas!

06 September 2012

New and improved...

I was a busy, busy girl yesterday working on my blog... when I wasn't picking garbage out of my neighbors garbage cans (I'll save that for tomorrow though).

As you may have noticed, I now have two sidebars instead of one. Why? Because of this...

Yup, 90 Percent Blonde is now accepting sponsors!

AND you can use FREE90 for a free 30-day spot on the blog. What a deal!

Reasons why I blog...

I'm sure we can all agree, there are three main reasons as to why we love blogging. After getting a lovely Facebook message last night, I decided to dedicate today's post to my blog and why I love it.
It's a way to document my life and to share my experiences with others...
Meeting gorgeous ladies who have become more than just random readers...
(Limited due to that face that it was more difficult than I thought
to find the pics and match them up on the map. Blogger FAIL)

And messages like this...

Some days, I wonder what my life would be like without blogs. But then I quickly snap out of it because that would be h-e-doublehockeysticks (and if you can read those three words combined into one, thank Twitter and hash tags for that)

The weekend of fun...

First and foremost, I hope everyone is having a wonderful and safe Labor Day! I'll be spending mine working from 2-10 but that's ok, it's holiday pay!
Holy fun weekend. I haven't had that much fun in a while!! I let the pictures do the talking...
I'm so glad Beau and I did the 5k together.
We had a blast!

Nikki from My Life My Way!
