Traffic Generating Search Words

Have any of you fellow bloggers ever checked the stats of your blog to see what keywords are generating traffic?? If you haven't you should, it is both interesting and entertaining. I just checked mine for the week and 3 of the top searches are "Justin Verlander shirtless", "Rick Porcello Shirtless", and " Josh Harris shirtless". I should let you know in advance I don't have any pics of these guys without shirts. Sorry for your disappointment. I do have pics of them clothed, but no ab shots here. However, for you people looking for shots of Dane Cook, Justin Timberlake and Ryan Reynolds shirtless, you are in luck. You may find those pics by clicking HERE!!!!. For some added fun, I will add some more pics of gorgeous shirtless guys now.

YouTube Tuesday- Harvard Baseball Team

I remember seeing this video on a few of my friends Facebook pages, but I never actually watched the entire thing until last night. It is seriously ridiculous, but adorable and amusing at the same time. This is the Harvard baseball team "performing" "Call Me Maybe". How can I not like something that features a group of good-looking HARVARD baseball players having fun. Oh and be sure to take note of the guy on the left side in the back sleeping the entire time. Love it! Apparently almost 11 million other people loved it too because that's how many views it currently has on YouTube. Check it out and let me know what you think!!

Pinterest Projects!!

I have expressed my love for pinterest before, so you all know how obsessed I am with it. I just love finding cute hairstyles, adorable pics, amazing recipes, and especially quick and easy crafts! Recently I found one for a patriotic wreath so I just had to make it to hang on my door for the summer. It turned out so well that I am going to share it with you all. It required a total of three supplies and took about 10 mins to make (3 of which were spent waiting for the glue gun to heat up). So here it is, my simple cute patriotic wreath!

I purchased all of the supplies at Joann's for a great price. Foam wreath cost 2.49 after a 50% off coupon, 9 ft garland (I used 2 to make the wreath) cost me 1.99 each after the 60% off sale, glue gun was only $1.80 after a 40% off coupon and the glue sticks were 2.49.

Next all I did was glue the end of the garland to the wreath and wrap around. At the end of the garland I glued that end down and repeated this process with the second string. Five minutes later, I had my finished project :)

Hanging on my apartment door :). Gonna head to Kohl's tomorrow to see if I can find a cute patriotic doormat to put underneath it :).

I also found this cute idea on Pinterest where you organize little make up and hair items by putting them all in jars and labeling. Simple right? So I picked myself up some cute, cheap glass jars at Home Goods and was able to find a decal chalkboard on clearance at Joann's for $4 or $5.

Next I just cut rectangles out of the chalkboard decal with scrapbooking scissors and applied to the glass jars.

Easy peasy :)

Finally, I saw a great idea that someone did on Pinterest by taking wallpaper and applying it to the back of a bookshelf to make the things on it stand out more. Now I didn't use wallpaper, but I was able to find some cute shelf paper at Joann's once again, on clearance for only 3.97! So I just removed the shelves and applied the paper to the back.

The best part is this bookshelf actually started out as a 5 shelf bookcase, but broke when I moved (it was just a cheap bookcase I picked up at Target for about $30). I didn't really want to throw the entire thing away so I found I was able to just use the top half of the shelf and turned it into a shelf for all my cookbooks and shot glasses that is now in the dining room. The funny thing is I used this shelf paper to decide what colors I was going to decorate my entire dining room in. Picked up the cute vases that are on top (now I just need some flowers to go in them) and a centerpiece dish for the dining room table at Home Goods and the candle holder and placemats at Ikea, and Voila! my dining room is complete!

American Idol Finale

So last night was the finale of American Idol. I'd have to say I was really glad to see it come. For some reason I just wasn't as into Idol as I had been in the past seasons. Maybe I need to take a season or two off like I did with Dancing with the Stars so I can get my obsession for it back. Therefore, now that it is over, I don't feel the obligation to dedicate 3 hours of my week anymore. Now even though I was glad for the end, I was also very happy with the ending. There were a few people I liked this season, but Phillip Phillips had been one of my faves the entire time. The fact that he wore whatever he wanted to, sang however he wanted to, and basically didn't change his style or image regardless of what people told him to do made me like him even more. Oh and the fact that the poor guy had been pretty sick with kidney problems the entire season, makes him even more impressive. Now I had liked pretty much all of Phillip's performances, but I'd have to say last week when he did "Beggin" and "We've Got Tonight" is what made me want him to win. Then when he sang "Home" on Tuesday night I LOVED it. I loved it so much that I am even thinking of downloading it from iTunes and actually paying $1.29 for it :). Jessica's song I didn't care for at all so I was really pulling for Phillip just so I could hear him sing that song again. And after 120 minutes of a bunch of performances and filler, a majority of which I could have done without, we got the best 7 minutes of the show, which you can watch below.

Now I must say I absolutely LOVE when the contestants sing their coronation song and end up crying before they finish it. Seriously. That sounds bad, but it is oh so true. So you can imagine how happy I was when Phillip, the guy who all season acted like he didn't care about anything pretty much, couldn't even come close to finishing his song because he was crying too much. BEST MOMENT OF THE SHOW!!! Congrats to Phillip and I wish him a speedy, healthy recovery from his upcoming kidney surgery and sincerely hope that he actually has a successful career ahead of him. Guy deserves it after being such a trooper the last five months and performing every single week.
