Ultimate Loyalty ♥


(I had this up before yahoo... just sayin'...)

This is heartbreaking. While watching this dog protect his friend, the area they are in is completely demolished.

I heard this morning that these to amazing dogs were rescued and are safe and well.

Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief


You can click this logo to donate for Japan's Earthquake and Tsunami Relief. The damage is painful, I can't even imagine if that happened here. It seems like the news just keeps getting worse and worse for them :( Prayers.

love auntie nee

April 6, 2009 my bestie, jenny, called me; her and the girls left me a voicemail that I absolutely LOVE.

During that week I just moved in my FIRST apartment all by my self. Things weren't going right with the move in and I thought EVERYTHING was falling apart. They weren't really, but at the time I really though they were.
I was stressed about being alone, the tv and internet I ordered (dish network) couldn't be installed cause the satellite couldn't be pointed in the right direction. But this wasn't determined until I had paid $200 and the install guys were standing on my patio. It was gonna take a week to get my money credited back. I already felt like money was flying out the window from everything else moving entails so a week delay on a refund I was not super pumped on.
After calling to get AT&T service they informed me it would be 2 weeks before they could come out to install cable and internet. So, that's when I lost it. 2 weeks at a new place with no cable and internet. How can a person function? I was super sad, and I think a few other things went wrong too, just can't think of them at the moment.

And so on April 6, 2009 this voicemail is left for me. I have been saving it on my phone for the last 2 years.... and every 30 days it tries to get rid of it, and then i re-save it. That's A LOT of re-saves!
For the last 2 months I have been trying to figure out how to get the voicemail off my phone and on to the computer. I have tried everything. EVERYTHING! It transfers to a weird format and i have downloaded so many file conversion thingys and nothing has worked.
So, I was able to get it to play in windows media, but it won't upload to you tube. No matter what I do, it won't work. So, the only thing I could think of is to take a video with my phone as it played so I can show you all how stinkin cute it is. Now you will know why I have been saving it. It makes me smile every time I hear it.


I was also lucky enough to get a similar video from my super cute lil nephew last night. I LOVE IT!! He doesn't yell as loud, so you gotta turn it up to hear him :)

Sexy as Hell Saturday

The February issue of InStyle did a feature on Dita Von Teese's home. It's pretty amazing.... it should inspire in you in some way. It did for me! I might need to try to order a back issue of this JUST so I can have have the actual article. you can click on the pictures so they get bigger so you can see all the fun stuff each each photo.
Enjoy!

I feel like I wanna wear this.....

This one is prefect to me. I'm sure I would look better sitting there getting ready and putting on make up. Yeah.... I think I'm pretty sure.

If you can read the article, she has flocked velvet wallpaper. Like, REALLY? I pretty much LOVE that.

Her kitchen makes me want to make strawberry shortcake. Right?

Circus of Life

A year ago I started The Secret Diary of a Cute Girl.... so I thought it would be nice to give it a facelift, change it up a bit. I appreciate all of you who visit and read, i'll keep doing it as long your reading. I also have a few new things I may add week to week; stay tuned for those. :)

A lot of the time, I feel like life is a circus. To get thru everything, hard or easy, there are always hoops and leaps and swings you have to perform along with pulling a few tricks out of your sleeves.
These days I have had to get super creative with the hoops and tricks; I entered a whole new world of being creative to move through the circus of life. It would be SO much funner (yes, funner) if everything looked like a circus too!!! Then maybe we'd view it in a happier light. This is for sure a circus party I would attend, and you all know how I feel about feathers ;)
This was actually Circus themed baby shower. These are cute little jellybean boxes for partying gifts. I would LOVE to get a partying gift (maybe not jelly beans... but you know...) after every time I had to perform through hoops in the circus of life, wouldn't you?

Happy 1st Birthday to The Diary!
