Go ahead pick my heart up off the ground if it looks nice in your hands, I've got no other plans.

2011 is almost over. Where did it go?
Many things happened to me in 2011:
I graduated
Started college
2 of my best friends got married along with several others I have been close to
Another got engaged
Another is having a baby
I've had several... interesting relationships this year
I wore my hair straight out in public for the first time in years
I got a new car and was finally allowed to drive it ;)

The Lord has truly blessed me with a wonderful life, I couldn't ask for anything better.

As for 2012... bring it on.
I can already tell this is going to be a great year. I'm going to be ringing it in with someone I am very fond of and I couldn't be happier. I am actually going to do some resolutions this time, such as:
1. No more texting and driving
2. Get in bed at a decent hour
3. Start working out somehow... hot yoga, zumba, running, something! (so cliche I know.)
4. Learn to sew (ha!)
5. More praying, less complaining
6. Have a lasting relationship
There is one more, but I'm not posting it on blog. I heard somewhere that if you write down your goals or tell someone about them you are more likely to do them, so there they are! Maybe I'll stick with them.
I will also be turning 19 this year, last year as a teen. It's a little sad. I'm starting to dread birthdays, which means I'm getting old! Yuck. When I was younger I always pictured myself having it together by now with the job, husband, all of my friends married too and us doing the same things we always had. It is soooo different than I ever thought it would be... and I'm totally okay with that. I'm in college and I'm happy! My friends and I may all be on different pages these days, but I still love every one of them as much as I ever have. It's a beautiful life.

Christmas was great this year. Got a Keurig coffee maker that I absolutely adore, some BCBG tracksuits that I now pretty much live in at the house, a DKNY watch that is perfect, and a bunch of other stuff that I probably didn't need but I love anyway.
Kay and I went shopping yet again (surprise) Tuesday and had so much fun. Boys, shopping, and sushi. A perfect day.
I am now addicted to Hanging with Friends, so if anybody else plays hit me up! I love it, even though I am very bad at it!

I need to get back to packing, going up to Ardmore tomorrow to stay with Laura and the kids.
Good-bye all! I'll be back in 2012 :)

I'm just a little bit caught in the middle, Life is a maze and love is a riddle

Happy Monday!
Well it's happy for me anyway because I am on Christmas break, yayy.
Today was a very unproductive day. I didn't get out of bed until I absolutely had to get up and start getting ready to go to Huntsville with Kayla. She always talks me into going by tempting me with food. So I just started getting ready with the thought of a Starbucks white chocolate mocha to motivate myself to take a shower and look civilized. While my hair was still in a towel she canceled plans because her was sick :( soo... back to pajamas it was! I wasn't too heartbroken, ha.

I had a fairly eventful weekend. My exciting Friday consisted of going to wal-mart with my mimi... whoo. When I returned home my brother and his gf were there watching The Help. Blake looked so into the movie, not. I kept hearing pieces of it, and it sounded awesome, and I love Emma Stone so now I have to go buy the book and the movie. "You is kind. You is smart. You is important." This just about made me lose it and I don't know why!? I wasn't even watching the movie! Saturday I was awoken by a phone call from my dear friend Rachael announcing her engagement!! So exciting! And so sad! Definitely happy for her though. I have never thought of being proposed to in the morning hours, but apparently it happens! Who would've thought! haha. Then I went back to sleep. The second time I was awoken by my brother handing me my brand new iPhone :) Thank you Mimi for the early Christmas present! He also picked out my otter box, which was purple. I was like Blake when you think of me do you honestly think purple? Well you shouldn't, you should think pink. I went and exchanged it for a pink one that afternoon. We also had the lovely chore event of going to Christmas at my great-grandmother's. It wasn't so bad. My wonderful Aunt KC made home made sushi, so I made myself sick almost eating so much of it. Blake's gf also ventured over there with us. I've decided Hannah and I are going to be best friends. I love her. Church that night, where I saw my long lost best friend Ashley! So good to see her! Miss her terribly. Also saw my other long lost Melia :) So Melia and Jordan, Chad and Haley, Cory and Rachael, and Me...and Kayla all went to Ichiban that night. Felt just a tiny bit out of place with all these married and engaged people, but Kayla and I are troopers haha. We all went back to Kay and Ken's for our secret santa exchange. Fun Fun. Rolled out of the bed (literally) and went to my Mimi's the next morning for yet another Christmas. Hannah was there and I told her just to excuse my homeless appearance, I was just at my Mimi's where nobody cares what you look like. It was a great morning. Drank good coffee and opened presents. Went to Oak Grove's Christmas Play that night with Kayla where yet again we felt out of place with all of the couples there so we skipped out on eating and headed to Santa Fe.
So this weekend I realized this is like the 3rd time my brother, younger by 2 years, has brought somebody to family events, that I have yet to do. How sad is that??

I have also decided to join Twitter. Don't know how long it will last, but I'm gonna try it anyway.
I think this is going to be a great week, full of not doing much of anything.
Thursday night is Christmas caroling, where Shannon threatened our lives if we don't show up. ;)
And Friday should also be a fun day.

Kay and I at Ichiban.

It's late and I've just started Hush, Hush so I think I'm going to go read that now.
Goodnight bloggers!

'Cause hey I could be a superstar. I'll see you when you wash my car.

So yea, haven't posted since Thanksgiving! 
I know you all have just been dying from your lack of 'Hilary's dry wit and humor". Totally kidding. I'm not sure I even have followers other than Becca (love ya girl). I mainly just do this because... well I like it. 

Finals are over. I believe I managed to have an A in all of my classes EXCEPT for speech. It was an 89. I mean seriously?! Was one point going to kill her? It probably would have. Her whole goal in life is to ruin mine. Okay a little dramatic there, but still. Biology was hard and I never had a clue what she was saying, but she was a sweetheart and liked me so I came out alright. Today was my psychology final and I must say I really enjoyed psychology. Maybe because my teacher was hilarious (Shelby if you are reading this, that time I was on tv in class with the man with a ponytail, that's him). He really had a way of explaining things. He is an interesting character... like I said above: he has a ponytail, and his fashion sense is peculiar; one day it's a polo, crocs, jeans, and kavu bracelets and the next he is wearing a beige sweater with odd purple designs and has on a purple turtleneck underneath. He also drives a red convertible mustang and a white jeep wrangler with stickers all over it and a tag that says "PYSCHO". I think that is very clever and if I ever become a psychologist my tag will also say 'pyscho'. I sounded like such a stalker just then, I'm really not. I am just very observant and like to people watch haha. 
The last few chapters we studied were talking about mental disorders such as schizophrenia. You develop schiz. between your late teenage years and early adulthood, and are more likely to develop it if you're mom had a difficult pregnancy, if you were born during the winter months, and if it runs in your family. I was sitting in class thinking "I'm in my late teens, my mom had a difficult pregnancy, and I was born in February!!" I mean could you imagine knowing someone your entire life and then one day BAM they are a schizo! It would be terrible. Luckily, it only happens to about 1% of the population which is very rare, but still what if you were that 1%?! I also learned that we are all one stressful thing or chemical imbalance away from having a mental disorder... really brightens your day, doesn't it?

Anyways! On to a happier subject. Christmas is almost here, very exciting. I have 3 this weekend. Starting Saturday at my great-grandmother's, and then that night go to Kay and Ken's for our secret santa party, and then Sunday morning at my Mimi's. I don't even know why we call it secret santa because we get so excited we just have to know who everyone has (what does it matter?? haha), so naturally Kayla, Kendra, and I sat down and kinda did a map thing to figure out who had who. I have Kayla and she is going to love what I got her and I know Kendra has me and got me a Forever21 gift card, which I'm super excited about. Mimi told me that we were trying something 'new' this year with having Christmas at breakfast so I could wear my pajamas if I wanted to and I'm thinking that sounds like a glorious idea.

I think I have watched White Christmas 200 times in the past week. It is on repeat on AMC and I can never bring myself to change the channel. "Lord help the mister that comes between me and my sister, and Lord help the sister that comes between me and my man!"

Okay so that was a whole blog post about nothing. I hope all of you have marvelous weekends! :)
