I'm not sharing number 13. It's titled "10 Years Ago I was..", and honestly it's just a bit raw for me. It's personal that I don't feel like sharing. It's funny, because I was not doing anything crazy. Ashley 7 years ago has a lot more skeletons in her closet than Ashley 10 years ago. But 10 years ago I was trying on a hat that didn't fit. So there. Sorry, void-y vortex interwebs.

Superpowers I'd like to have....

10, 11

The one above was Saturday's list. Saturday was a pretty great day (until Oz woke up close to midnight and refused to go back to bed, but you know, you can't win them all!).

List 11 was written while Oz was napping on Sunday. You may be wondering to yourself, "What the hell is 'Lost Control'? I don't know that song.". Well, it's an 80's song. Not a great one, but it came on when we were out to lunch on Saturday and my younger sister and I were having a great time singing and dancing and remembering that we really liked the song when we were little. So I'm providing you with the music video. Again, it just reconfirms my feeling that 80's hair does NOT need to make a comeback.

this one has been my hardest to "create" thus far. I was just forever frustrated with putting it together, even tho I enjoyed making the actual list. Maybe I'm just over-thinking things today. A lot of my "Happy Places" have to do with places we aren't at the moment. I love to travel, and I'm very excited about some of the things we are planning for this year. I'm looking forward to the beach and camping this summer. I'm hoping that maybe we'll turn the poolside into a sort of beer garden. I wish the US had really gotten the idea of a pub. It can be such a wonderful, relaxing environment for the whole family. *sighs* Anyways, excuse the frustrated glitter and penguins. It's just all I had this evening.

I did, in fact look up a few skirt patterns. I kind of went grocery shopping. I renewed all but one book (which, ironically is called "This book is overdue!". It's fantastic and so far, well worth the fine it's gaining). I called USC Upstate, but I have yet to receive a call back.

The quote in yellow says "Life is nothing if you're not obsessed" from the John Water's movie Pecker. And while the last quote is usually attributed to Plato, a little internet digging found out that it wasn't. Quote Investigator is one of my new friends.

I collect a lot of things. But not in a creepy hoarder way.


Currently I am doing 30 Days of Lists. I have been great about sharing with my group, but I want to share here as well. Maybe help kick start my blogging again. So here are 1-3. Last time I did these, I used scrapblog to upload and create picture lists. This time, I'm going "old school" and using paper, pens, glue, and a camera. It's been a lot of fun.

Yeah I'm here.

You know something? I check blogger everyday. I do. I love to read other blogs and it's the best way to do that. And I always think "I should post something" and then I'm lazy and go back to facebook. You can see how easy it is to let something like this fall by the wayside. With facebook and twitter, you can the thought of the moment out quickly and you get almost immediate response. Blogger? Not so much. You sometimes feel like you're talking to a void and *maybe* someone is listening. Plus, I feel like as much as I tweak here and there, it never LOOKS like I want it too and I'm too lazy to learn more about programing and design.

Anyways, I've been on such a music and movie kick lately. It's been nice. I have also been trying LOADS of new recipes that I'd "pinned" and had a lot of success with that. Griff and I are trying to set up an etsy shop, so that's been...well...interesting. We make progress and then kind of walk away from it and work on something else. I should set a task to have it "Open" by the end of the month. So if you read here, make sure you ask about that at the end of the month.

So here's some music. I heard this on the radio and lost my shit and rocked out. Why don't I have this song??!?! It's fucking fantastic.
