"Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book."

Title: Quote by unknown author

Oh Reading.
Ask me about things I missed while I was in school and somewhere in the top 5, I would say reading.
I tried to avoid picking up books during the school year because I never wanted to put them down.
I get lost in the books and want to do nothing else but read.
Not such a good thing when papers need written or projects need completed.

Now that I've graduated, there will be so much more time to read.
SO exciting!
One idea I've been toying with is buying an e-reader.
I brought it up to Vito around Christmas and he shot down my idea.
Saying it isn't worth the money unless I'd be reading a lot.
I put the idea out of my head for awhile but now with my birthday, the idea came creeping back.
So yesterday after Vito took me to dinner, we headed over to Best Buy and I played with the different e-readers.

Even after playing with them, I have an idea of which one I like better.
I still feel like I need more opinions!
So I thought, who better to turn to but my dearest bloggy friends.
So tell me about your e-reader!
Which is better:
Kindle or Nook?

Or another one??
If you don't have an e-reader, why not?
Help a chica out!

Between Order and Randomness

Title: OTH Episode Title

Oh hey there lovelies!
Long time no speak/read/write? Meh, whichever.
I've been trying to write blog posts. I swear. You can check my dashboard.
I've started a whole bunch but I can never finish.
I get an idea and BAM it's gone.
I wanted to just suck it up and blog something so y'all know I'm still here and alive!

So welcome to Vanessa's completely random post.

I've finished my college career as an undergrad!
Last Saturday Vito & I graduated.
There will be a whole post dedicated to this with the zillion pictures that were taken.
But in short, it was fun and exhausting and amazing.

Because of said graduation, we are partying it up tomorrow.
Stressed and anxious?
Oh you bet.
What I thought would be a relatively small party has morphed into almost 50 people.
I should be excited right?
I will be.
Let me finish worrying about the amount of food we'll need first and then I'll be fine.

I'm currently drinking a caramel mocha iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts.

My birthday is this coming week.
Ya know, my most favorite day of the entire year.
And I'm not even excited or ready for it.
With graduation, it's being put on the back burner.
I haven't even had the chance to ask off work yet.
Vito's in charge of planning and I'm excited to see what he has up his sleeve!

This picture makes me so happy.
That's all I have to say about that.
Actually, no it's not.
Two other things?
I want to see a pic of Josh as Peeta.
& I want to know who is playing Cinna.
If you don't know what I'm talking about here, get your butt to the nearest bookstore and buy The Hunger Games.
You can thank me later.

Apparently the world is going to end tomorrow.
At 6pm to be exact.
My only thoughts on that?
"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
Matthew 24: 36

Tomorrow (actually tonight) I'm going to whip up a batch of this salsa.
This may not seem important but trust me it is.
I'm almost 24 years old and this chick loves to cook and bake.
One ingredient I've refused to use because I hate it with every fiber of my being?
And I don't throw that word around for just anything.
I'm the girl who picks them out of everything.
But, PW is my kitchen hero and if she says to use onions in the salsa, I just have to suck it up.
Pray for my soul.

I am SO tired of rain, I don't even have words.
It's rained for the last 7 days.
I'm beginning to forget what sunshine looks like.
I thought April showers brought May flowers.
Not more rain.

On the evening of Vito and I's graduation, our dateaversary twins tied the knot!
I can't wait to show you pictures because it was absolutely gorgeous and so much fun.
It even rained in the evening, which the stunning bride was VERY excited for.
She tells you her love for rain over here.
Go visit her blog.
It's new and needs some love.
Wish her congrats & welcome her to the blogging community.
& tell her to blog more!!
Love you bff

I did something I've never done before.
My google reader had over 800 unread blog posts in it.
It was so daunting, I clicked "Marked as all read."
I feel equal parts guilty and relieved.
Please still love me through this.
Also, if I missed any big posts by doing this (SO SORRY) please let me know so I can see them!

Well, this is enough non-sense.
Happy Friday loves!
