Give Me a Break!

I'm taking a break from blogging... not that I hadn't already taken one but I'm finding it incredibly pointless to put effort into something that no longer brings me joy.  This blog has become a pain in my butt, a nuisance and sucks my time.  I spend so much time trying to make it look nice and I reap no reward.  My posts are no longer interesting and no one seems to care.

Yes, I am having a bad attitude about this but who cares?  I need some Kelsey time.  I need to do some zumba.  I need to work on my summa tan.  I need to read a book.  I need to find myself a lovely piece of man candy.  

Give me a couple days... or weeks and i'll be back but for now I need some alone time.

Button, Button, Whose Got the Button?

I'm so angry with blogger right now I might just be shaking every so slightly.  I've been trying to upload my button for quite a while now and it's not working

That would be it.  Blogger will not let me put it in my sidebar!  I'm so annoyed... and possibly hungry.

My Golden Gala Giveaway

Well y'all, today is the day!  For over a month I have been wracking my brain trying to decide what I was going to potentially give away.  I wanted it to be something that described me, something that I would love and most importantly, something that I had designed.  I searched through bakeries, thrift stores, vintage shops, craft stores, etsy, etc. and couldn't come up with anything! Until...

Oh goodness i'm so excited!

This is the first ever design by the future etsy store Golden Gala.  The exterior is vintage.  The interior as been redone as far as I can tell, and the flower was added by moi.

So... here's how you lovelies can enter my first ever giveaway!

Entry 1. Become a follower (everybody's doing it) and comment telling me what exciting things you're doing this summer.  Adding your email address is always helpful! 
Entry 2. Follow A "True Aggie" Story on twitter and give a little shout out about the giveaway.  Please post the link in your comment. 
Entry 3. Mention the giveaway in a blog post.  Please leave the link to your post in the comments.

Well, there ya have it!  There are three possible ways for you to enter to win this clutch that I secretly wish I was keeping for myself!  It totally matches the outfit i'm wearing.

Lets face it, lately I've be L to the AZY!  I've been meaning to finish my new header and get everything up and running but just haven't managed to a. find the time to do that and b. get the motivation to care.  I'd pay someone to re-do my blog for me but the funds just aren't there at this time so it looks like i'll be doing it myself.  *grumble, grumble*

I must say that no one informed me while I was growing up just how expensive life really is.  Every time I blink there is something new that needs to be paid for!  Rent, utilities, the deposit for the utilities, etc. it sure adds up fast.  And I realized that having to use your birthday money to pay for this crap really sucks!  
Um excuse me, that's my birthday money.  The money that someone gave me as a gift so that I could go pick out something that I might actually enjoy!  But no one in "the real" world (because i've been living in fantasy dream land for 20 years and no one bothered to tell me) cares that it was your birthday. 

Wow, that wasn't bitter at all.

Under Construction

My lovelies I apologize for the inconvenience but my blog is under some construction for the time being.  It should be ready to go by tonight though!

For now, please enjoy the music while your party is reached. 

If you pay attention the the cellphone The Beibs is texting me (Kelsey).  Dear JB, you can text me to tell me you love me any time!  I don't think i'll mind.

That wasn't creepy at all was it?!


Dear J.Crew,
Please continue to infiltrate my wardrobe.  I promise I won't mind!

I love J.Crew!  Like seriously LOVE J.Crew.  The mushy, gushy, drool over the catalog type of love.  I also love shopping at thrift stores.  My two loves have collided and have become the lover of all lovers!  I kid you not, whenever I go to the thrift store I walk out with an armful of J.Crew clothing.  It's wonderful!

So far my finds include:
-one blue and white silk dress $6
-tan wool blazer $5
-horizontal striped blouse $5
-vertical striped blouse $5

Please excuse me while I fangirl over these three outfits.... Love them!

An Aggie Book Review: The Nanny Diaries

It's summer and that Means it's the season for reading books!  I recently went to the store and picked up a couple random books to keep me occupied in the mornings before I have to go to work. 

I completed "The Nanny Diaries" within a couple days because it was an easy read but I don't think I would recommend it to anyone... unless you're a nanny.  The language in the book is pretty heavy so i'd feel bad for saying that it was "good".  If you're a nanny you will gain an immense appreciation for your job and the family you work for while reading this book.  You never realize just how good you have it until you see or read about someone who is treated so poorly.  The story isn't overly exciting but you are compelled to keep reading because a. you wonder what the employers are going to do next b. will she stand up for herself and c. will things get any better. 

To be honest I think this book was only a New York Times Best Seller because tons of rich women went out and bought the book because they wanted to see if it was their family that was being written about.  Definitely not on my list of favorite books.

Phone Dilemma

I feel that there is a reason why cell phone providers have you update your plan every two years, a. they want your money and b. it's about time for a new phone anyway!  My dear friends I've made my cute little cell phone last 2.5 years!  That's a heck of a long time in phone years.  Somehow I missed out on the family getting new phones for Christmas and now I feel that i'm in some serious need of a new phone!  Mine is one drop away from becoming a scratched up paperweight.

I've decided that I don't really want a touch screen anymore; I find them to be a hassle and they get all finger-printy and gross. I do however want something that is wifi capable so I can check my email, blog, facebook and twitter while on the go... meaning while on campus without my laptop.

As of this very moment I'm almost positive that I want a Blackberry.  They're cool right?  
I think I've decided on the model but the color is what I just can't decide on. 

We've got the normal black and white but then there is this sweet wine color.  Would it be weird to have a Blackberry that wasn't black?  I'm really diggin' on the white one though!  It makes a sturdy phone seem feminine.  

Any thoughts or opinions or reasons why I should keep a touch screen?  I'm all ears!

I Caved!

I caved and decided to get a Twitter account.  I sort of like it so far!  The nice thing about Twitter is that you finally have a place to post all those stupid things that you didn't want to make an official status on Facebook. Here is the link to my profile.  If you want you can follow me.  I'm @atrueaggiestory  I'm so original aren't I?

Love, Kelsey

PS.  Isn't that fat bird cute?!

Estoy Usando Pantalones?

This was posted over at a field of dasies and it sort of cracked me up... Probably because I have found that I don't like pants.  Yeah, I'm weird... I know.  My spandex exercise capris are my BFF.

PS I'm going to be doing more blogging as soon as I rescue my camera from my parents house!

Wednesday, May 11, 2011


So right now i'm a blogging failure.  The semester ended last week and I still haven't posted anything.  In my defense I have been very busy!  I moved everything from my cute little apartment on campus home for the weekend and then on Monday I moved just about everything back up to Logan into a new apartment that I still don't know how I feel about.
I would take pictures of my sterile and drab apartment but sadly I left my camera at home.  Things just aren't working out for me!
I have three roommates... I think.  I have only met one of them long enough to know that her name is Morgan.  

Basically having an apartment all to myself sucks!  I wake up in the morning and as far as I know the roommates are gone.  I come home in the evening after work and yet again they are gone... or they could be sleeping.  This apartment situation has made me realize just how much I don't want to be single once I graduate in three years (I added an extra year onto my original graduation date).  There is no way in heck that I ever want to have an apartment all to myself!  

I guess that if the apartment was only mine I wouldn't feel like I couldn't do anything in it.  I could move stuff around in the kitchen because all of it would be mine!  I could sit in the living room and watch tv because it would be my tv!  Goodness, I could walk around with no clothes on because there wouldn't be the chance of having a roommate walk in on me (not that I would do that... awkward!)

It's been hard dealing with the drastic change.  I lived with the same girls my Freshman and Sophomore year in a tiny little apartment on campus.  Now I live in a bigger townhouse with practically no one.  Goodness, I like my privacy but not this much!  I've had anxiety for over 24 hours now and have managed to eat a handful of cereal, a piece of bread and half of a Nutrigrain bar.  It's no fun having anxiety that makes you want to puke your guts out!

I know that everything will get better though!  I'm going to find a new job!  I'm going to have fun with the friends that I have!  I'm going to learn to appreciate the extreme privacy!  I'm going to make the best of the situation!

I Need To Make One!

Yet again I was on Grosgrain and I found this lovely little wreath!  Why oh why do I get on that blog?  I always find so many thing that I want to make.
How easy peasy would this wreath be to make? I'd need a picture frame, felt, buttons, burlap and scrap fabric.  I'm seeing it as the wreath to my next apartment, No?

Sunday, May 1, 2011


The best thing about blogging is following other peoples blogs!  I am so inspired by other people and the things they post... I love it!
Today while I was over at Grosgrain I saw this!
Top left!  Do ya see it?  Do ya? Do ya? I am in love with it!  Love, love, love, love, luuuuvvvv!
I'm seeing it in all white with a three quarter sleeve silk blazer as a SaaWeeeet wedding dress!
