what i'm listening to [week 7]

Howdy! Last week/weekend went by way too fast. I can't believe it's Tuesday already! My handsome man and I are going to California Friday! Woo hooooo:) Updates on that later!
Don't forget to get your posts ready for Saturday's link up!!! It's the first Ten Favorite Things link up, and I'd love it if you all could come share your ten favorite things about this month's topic, fall. It goes live Saturday at 12 am so don't miss out!!!
Anyway, back to business!
This week's song is also from Chris Young's new album, A.M.
Can you tell he's my fave?!

We're Gonna Find it Tonight by Chris Young


And the lyrics:

This ain't no candlelight
Warm glass of wine night
it's more a whiskey water
Drink that's on the rocks kind
Let's crank the radio
Get this truck on into town
Somebody call the fire department
We're gonna burn it down
Girl, I can see it in your eyes
I know you're feeling like getting wild
[Chorus:]
Whatever gets you moving
Gets you grooving
Gets you fired up
We're gonna get it
If you really want it bad enough
Yeah, we're gonna chase it
Get all crazy
Gonna lose our minds
Whatever's gonna get you feeling right
Girl, we're gonna find it tonight
You call your girlfriends up
And I'll call some boys of mine
I know the bouncer at the bar
No we don't stand in line
I'll hit the DJ with some money
He'll play all your songs
We're gonna get it right
Even if it's all wrong
Girl, I can see you're eyes
I know you're feeling like getting wild
[Repeat Chorus]
Girl, I can see it in your eyes
Gonna have fun when we get home tonight
[Repeat Chorus]
We're gonna find it tonight
Yeah, we're gonna find it tonight
Whatever's gonna get you feeling right
Girl, we're gonna find it tonight

let's get a little mud on the tires

Gosh I love having my handsome man in town. Spending time with him is the best! We always have such a good time even if we're just sitting around doing nothing, but the last few days we've been so busy!

Yesterday, we met up with his dad who lives in BFE nowhere. Handsome got a new truck and just put some new tires on that bad boy so we took it out, along with his dad and his truck, to go get a little mud on the tires! Thanks Brad Paisley.

But of course we had to stop at Starbucks first :)


He let me drive his truck which was a lot of fun! It was just down some dirt roads, nothing crazy, but it was exciting...and scary because I drive a little car so I'm not used to big trucks!


Arizona is so ugly. For those of you that know the Phoenix area, this is at like 287th Avenue and Bell. Yeah, we're in the middle of nowhere.


What's a little dirt road fun without some good country music?!


We also got to shoot some guns. That one right there was so loud that Handsome's ears were still ringing later that night. Great.

Alright so here's the first hill we tried to climb. We get all the way to the top, and it was scary as shit. We couldn't see in front of us so we didn't really know what the top of the hill looked like and where to drive. I thought we were going to die.

But we made it!
His truck just looks like its going to fall over.

Now, getting off of this hill was intense. I'm pretty sure we almost tipped over. I had my eyes closed and I was just saying "we're gonna die" over and over haha. But Handsome got us turned around so we could drive down that hill.

Now here's the fun part.

Halfway down the hill and I start to hear air.. coming from his tire. 

His two day old tire was popped. Two days. So we spent the next half hour changing it.

Well, he spent the next half hour changing it. :)

He was so bummed. I felt awful. But luckily the tire place helped us out (even though they were closed) and hooked my handsome man up with a new tire!

Finally we were home, and then it was date night!
We went to dinner and walked around this cute little outside mall. It was so nice outside too! I was even a little cold. That's not supposed to happen in September in Arizona. I loved it!

So, that was my Saturday! 
What was the highlight of your weekend?

Oh, and PS- he even walks my dogs for me, and he looks damn sexy while he's doing it! I think he's a keeper.

my rant for the day.

Ugh. I don't have a life, so I'm on Facebook... like.. a lot. Half of the things people post make me so mad. So sorry if I offend anyone but...

I hate when people post things for attention.

Girls. Don't post a selfie with the caption "I look ugly in this one" Obviously if you thought you looked ugly you wouldn't have posted it. Its obvious that you're just hungry for all of the "OMG no you don't you're so pretty" pity comments.

I also hate when people say "I hate my life everything sucks so bad" or one of those feel sorry for me statuses.  Then when someone asks whats wrong they say "I don't want to talk about it" Stop. You're being dramatic. If you don't want to talk about it don't post it on Facebook.

and finally...

People really need to learn how to spell. I'm not going to spend five whole minutes deciphering your status that looks like this:
"I ain gon 2 skool itz 4 loosers n i don ned it. it ain shit 2 me i got beter shit 2 do"
First of all. That's a real status. I didn't make that up. Second, sorry Sir, but you should really consider staying in skool...

What are your social media pet peeves?

one-minute cake for one!

So, this might just be the best thing ever. I have a really intense sweet tooth, like always. So when I heard this recipe for a one-minute cake in a mug, I had to try it! 
My handsome man and I ventured out to Fry's at 11pm...typical us being fatties at midnight!

Here's the recipe

one box of Angel Food Cake mix
one box of any other cake mix [we used chocolate]
frosting

Yep! It's that simple!

Put the two boxes of cake mix into a plastic bag and mix them together


In one mug or jar, add:
three tablespoons of the dry mix
two tablespoons of water



Pop in the microwave for one minute



Let cool and frost!

There you have it! The easiest, quickest, and tastiest sweet treat!


Isn't he just the cutest chef?!

what i'm listening to [week 6]

Happy Tuesday! I just want the next few days to be over with already so I can get back home to spend time with my handsome man! 

Anyway,
In the past couple of weeks, three artists have released new and amazing albums. Keith Urban's Fuse, Justin Moore's Off the Beaten Path, and my fave Chris Young's A.M. I could probably pick any song from Chris Young's album this week. I love it all! Fuse and Off the Beaten Path have some really good one's too. 


My favorite this week though is definitely A.M. by Chris Young
I always listen to the song that shares a title with the album first because it's usually the best- right? Well this one definitely is. I love it!


Sorry this is the only version with a video right now!

Here are the lyrics:

Everybody waitin' for the weekend
Gettin' off five in the P.M.
Wanna blow off a little steam and
Go cut loose somewhere
Folks start showin' up at seven 
Order up a crown or a cold one
Nobody buyin' rounds for no one
No girls dancin' on the bar in there
But in the A.M. they go from gettin' busted to wasted
Might not remember what they're sayin'
Radio turned up playin' loud a honkeytonk station
Spendin' what you spent the week makin'
Ask a little hottie what her name is
The whole world's asleep, but we're wide awake in the A.M.
Leave around ten and you're alright
Everybody's cool, never uptight
But if you stay longer than midnight
You might end up in the middle of a fist fight
Cause in the A.M. they go from gettin' busted to wasted
Might not remember what they're sayin'
Radio turned up playin' loud a honkeytonk station
Spendin' what you spent the week makin'
Ask a little hottie what her name is
The whole world's asleep, but we're wide awake in the A.M.
In the A.M. they go from gettin' busted to wasted
Might not remember what they're sayin'
Radio turned up playin' loud a honkeytonk station
Spendin' what you spent the week makin'
Ask a little hottie what her name is
Hey, baby, tell me whatcha think about
Gettin' out of this place and let me show you my Chevrolet
And we can sit and do a little star gazin'
Get a little bit of alone time in, in the A.M.
Yeah, yeah in the A.M.

Well there you have it! If you like that, you should definitely check out the rest of the album and also Keith Urban and Justin Moore's too! :)

Q : What's your favourite ice-cream moment?

Noor :
I have always loved to eat ice cream any time . But I remember a chilly winter night when I was on tour of a hill station , everybody was sipping tea/coffee while I saw an ice cream parlour . I went straight and ordered myself TWO WHOLE scoops & ate them right away . Can you guess ice cream with shivers ? I had .

Areeba : 
My love for ice creams are spontaneous . Though it's never always lucky . Ina  formal dress party , I was eating ice cream and it spilled on my dress . YIKES I had to run away because 1) Ice creams are so cold

2) It was pink so it stained hard .



Brianna : 

When I was in Girl Scouts in like fifth grade, we learned how to make our own ice cream! Everyone's turned out so great and yummy! Mine was soup.
Your turn to answer!

weekend update

Hello loves! I'm linking up with Sami for Weekend Shenanigans! My weekend was amazing. I got to spend it with my handsome man. :)
Gosh he's so handsome!
I came home to Phoenix Thursday after class. Dj and I surprised his mom- she didn't know he was here yet! It was so cute. Then he finally got to meet my best friend. When he's in town she's always at school in California! I'm so glad they finally got to meet.
Then on Friday we went to dinner with my grandparents who also haven't met him. Poor guy, I've been dragging him around to meet all of the people that are important to me. He's such a good sport! I'm so lucky. Anyway, we went to dinner and it went really well. They loved him! Then we went bowling with some of his friends. I realized that I'm terrible at bowling. I lost by at least 40 each game..cool.
Saturday we went and got me a new phone! woooo hoooo! I got the iPhone 5c in pink. It's so cute! Best part- it was free! I got to trade in my old phone and got this one instead! I'm a little obsessed with it. Saturday night he came with me to babysit. I've been babysitting this family for like seven years and they're like family to me, so of course they had to meet him! It was awesome. Playing with him and the kids made me so excited thinking about someday when it'll be our kids we're playing with!
Sunday morning we got Krispy Kreme so obviously it was a good day. I'm pretty sure we both ate like 7 donuts! Oh well.
I head back to Tucson today (boo) and then I get to come home to his handsome face again Thursday! I can't wait already.
Sooo there's my weekend! Happy Monday lovelies have a good week!

he's here!

Finally. My handsome man is home! It felt like it was never coming, and now that he's here it feels like we were never apart. The little time I've been able to spend with him so far has been beyond perfect, and I couldn't be happier. We haven't done much though, so I haven't had much to write about. So here's all you've missed:

I picked him up from the airport. I was so happy to see him. I was crying the whole time I was waiting for him because I was so excited! 

He suprised his mom which was so sweet

We went and got him a new truck. Best part: the lady he bought it from had some awesome stickers on the back window

I was seriously dying it was so funny seeing him in the truck with those stickers on the back.

We went to Verizon and got him a phone- yay for being able to call and text each other finally! :) He got the HTC One. It's pretty awesome! 

Also I found out I can get an iPhone 5c for FREE! So tomorrow I'm going to go get me a pink iPhone! If only they had a sparkly one....

So we've basically just been hanging out and getting things done. But its perfect. Every moment I spend with him, not matter what we're doing, is perfect.

PS don't forget that October 5 is the first Ten Favorite Things link up! Tell me YOUR favorite things about fall! I can't wait :)

what i'm listening to [week 5]

It's Tuesday! This week so far has been amazing. :) This week's song is by one of my favorite artists, Easton Corbin.
Last year we went to his concert at the county fair and it was so good! He's adorable and I love all of his music! I'd love to see him again.

Anyway, here's what I'm listening to this week!

Lovin' You Is Fun by Easton Corbin.

That video is so cute :) I think this song is so true. There shouldn't be so much drama in a relationship. I never understood people that say that relationships take so much work. I believe that if you've found the right person, it should be natural and easy.

Here are the lyrics:
You’ve got a cousin who’s telling you somethin’
That doesn’t have nothin’ to do with the lovin’ that we’re in, baby
I hear she’s sayin’ this game we’re playin’ should be complicated
If you won’t, I’ll say it, I think she’s crazy, cause

Love don’t have to be a bunch of drama
A bunch of knock-down, drag-outs, crying in the rain
It’s all right to keep it light now mama, don’t you think
We’re having such a good time together and it’s only just begun
My heart’s never smiled so hard
Baby, lovin’ you is fun
It’s fun

I’m walking around all over this town, ten feet off the ground
So happy I found you, baby, I love it
There’s no self-help book on your shelf, you know too well
They’re trying to sell you somethin’ for nothin’, cause

Love don’t have to be a bunch of drama
A bunch of knock-down, drag-outs, crying in the rain
It’s all right to keep it light now mama, don’t you think
We’re having such a good time together and it’s only just begun
My heart’s never smiled so hard
Baby, lovin’ you is fun

Love don’t have to be a bunch of drama
A bunch of knock-down, drag-outs, crying in the rain
It’s all right to keep it light now mama, don’t you think
We’re having such a good time together and it’s only just begun
My heart’s never smiled so hard
Baby, lovin’ you is fun

This ole heart’s never smiled so hard
Lovin’ you is fun
Yeah it’s fun
Yeah it’s fun
Lovin’ you is fun
