Iron Man

Yesterday morning I was up at the butt crack of dawn and couldn't get back to sleep. I decided I'd pretend I was a morning person and go get ready. I heard little feet running around while I was getting ready and assumed my niece and nephew were up. After 30 different outfits and a crazy curly mess that was now present on my head, I made the trek upstairs.

It was still early, probably around 7:30 so the other adults were still asleep. I walked into the family room and saw my nephew sitting a meager 18 inches from the tv screen, as per ushe. It looked like he was watching a talk show. At first I thought I must have left the tv on and assumed he was watching Dr. Phil (It's on almost every night from 2am - 9am on the Oprah Winfrey Network... and since I don't sleep, I soak up those Dr. Phil rays beaming from the television)  As I got closer I could see it was a guy and he had way too much hair to be Dr. Phil.

Me: Hunter, what are you watching?
Hunter: Iron Man.

At this point I was thinking it must be an Interview with Robert Downy Jr. or something. I got close enough to see that it wasn't him either.

Me: Are you sure?
Hunter: Yeah. See...

He took the remote and pulled up the tv guide on the screen. Sure enough the program he was watching was indeed entitled "Iron Man"

Hunter: I hope it's the cartoon version. This commercial is really long.

At this point I was staring at the screen and saw what he was really watching.

Hunter: Kylie, can you fast forward this commercial?

I snatched that remote from his hand and flipped it to the Disney channel as fast as I could.

It was not the cartoon version of Iron Man. It was not the movie Iron Man. It was not Robert Downy Jr.

It was a male enhancement infomercial.


Birthday Goodies

I thought it would be easier to blog consistently once it was summer and school was no longer such a large part of the picture. I was wrong. Like I usually am about most things. But alas here I am. 

It was my birthday this past week... July 14th to be exact. It was a pretty fabulous birthday and I got some awesome stuff. 

For starters I got a good ol' box of these . . . 

they were supposed to come back out on July 15th and my uncle snagged some early, which was cool. There was also movie tickets on the top. I really want to see The Wolf of Wall Street because let's face it... DiCaprio and McConaughey... umm yeah. It's not rated yet so I'm just hoping it's not R. It also doesn't come out until November. 

My brother and sister-in-law sent me this awesome water bottle. It's a Contigo Autoseal Kangaroo water bottle. I'm excited about it and can't wait to use it! 

I also got a nail art set that I can't wait to use and nail polish and then a pretty good stack of cash. 

My parents got me a Clarisonic facial cleanser. I have had my eye on these for a while but never really knew if I'd like it or if I would use it or how well they worked. I used it once and that was all it took. I don't know how I ever lived without it! More on this later though. 

Now for a huge surprise. I was unwrapping things and I found a piece of paper in one. It had this on it and read "July 19th @ 3 pm" 

Then in another present I found a piece of paper that had a picture of this and read "Night of July 18"

I found another paper with this picture and said "Night of July 18" 

 I was shocked and totally surprised. I never thought anything like this was coming. So off to Vegas we went! But that's worth a whole other blog post. 


The Greatest Game

Shocker... another hockey post. But we must address why hockey is greater than any other sport.
(or at least in my eyes)

First and foremost...
Attractive men. 

 I think that's enough examples to prove my point. If you need more just let me know.

Fast paced. 
The game never stops. Each team gets one 30 second timeout the whole game.

Tough players.

Easy to understand. 

Excitement is contagious.

You can be extremely close to the action.

Indoor sport. No unexpected weather turns.

Extremely high level of skill. 

Shift Changes. 


Penalty shots. 

Shoot outs. 
Talk about intense. And what an exciting way to end a game.

Hat tricks. 

Play offs. 

Long season. 

No cheerleaders.
NFL and NBA cheerleaders are just annoying to me personally.

Goal celebrations. 

Post playoff handshake. 
It's not yours until you shake on it.

And finally the whole reason for this post. 

When Lebron gave his championship interview, he said "I" 17 times and "we" 0 times.
When Jonathan Toews gave his speech when the Blackhawks won, he said "we" 14 times and "I" 0 times. 

Hockey wins.
