Wednesday is "Living Under a Rock" Day.

Living Under a Rock: means that you must have been away, in hiding or had no contact with civilization to miss this big event; an idiom

With finals looming, I'm living under a rock these days.

For instance, I had to ask yesterday if Jessica Simpson was still pregnant. I also found out this morning about the awful tornadoes that were in Dallas yesterday afternoon. And supposedly, Mitt Romney took Wisconsin last night. Some feel that he has clinched the GOP nomination at this point. My personal opinion? It's April and the RNC still doesn't have a candidate. Americans need to plan on another Obama administration. If you're happy with that, then my opinion isn't that big of a deal to you. But if you're a Republican, I bet I just got a "hmph" outta you. Finally, and most importantly, have y'all seen the cover of People this week? It's all about a Royal baby. We're not talking about just any Royal Baby either. We're talking about THE Royal Baby: William and Kate's baby! Just consider that issue of People added to my list of books and magazines to read over the break which includes the Mimi Alden book, the 2nd book of the Stephanie Plum series, Bloom by Kelle Hampton, Bossypants by Tina Fey, the new Bill Clinton book, and Divergent again before the second book comes out in May.

And speaking of plans over break, I will be trying to up my work-outs. Also I am planning a car show at my school this summer. I will of course be watching the premiere of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. I plan to spend lots of time with my husband, make him lots of good food (I plan to scourge the Weight Watchers recipes!) and clean the house the way I like to clean it. There are also a few other fun things planned in between, but I can't talk about them until they happen!

But on the flip side, I am enjoying living under a rock. It's a little relaxing...even if I am FREAKING THE HECK OUT about finals.

In other completely, unrelated news, I have a few logistical things to get out of the way...

First up is the winner for the giveaway from Fashion To Figure. The winner is Kara!!!!!! (FYI: I wrote all the entries down and then my husband picked out of my lucky Yankees hat.)

If you haven't subscribed to the appSmitten letter, you totally should! I've since added three apps based on their recommendations. Click here to do so!

Now, back to the question at hand: What do you like when you live under the radar for a few days or weeks at a time?

Hope this finds y'all well!

Happy Wednesday and Happy Birthday to my Grannie. She would have been 85 today and I'm sure she is the best divinity maker in heaven since she arrived last year.

I just read Divergent - it was awesome!

Also, I agree with you about not having a good candidate...I know we have good leaders out there, why aren't they part of this race??

Kara said...

Yea me! I never win anything, though I do feel like dodging the tornado's yesterday was a BIG win!

Oh finals season, how I loathe you for taking away our Sam.

Deployment has done the same thing to me! I just found out - today - that J Simps had her baby. And that our fav housewives are coming back next week!

Hi y'all! The name's Samantha. You can call me Sam if you like. I am a lover to a boy I met at Falls Creek in the summer of 2005, that is a student of Jesus, a Sooner born and Sooner bred and when I die I'll be Sooner dead, Democrat by party, blonde to the core, and oldies but goodies kind of girl.
