What Do They Look Like Now?

29 Nov

Do ever wonder what has become of a child actor that was in something so popular and then just vanishes seemingly overnight? Like where did that cute little boy from “Stuart Little” go? I don’t really care where their careers have taken them or if they’ve given up acting and are studying marine biology at Yale, I mean like good for them but I don’t really care. What I do care about however is what they look like now. Did that precious little face on “Matilda” transform into a beautiful woman? Are those cute little hair bows still working for her at age 24?


Welp, she looks exactly the same. Except for the whole giving up on the hair bows thing.

“Free Willy”

Jesse used to be the coolest kid I knew, saving whales in his spare time and such.

Um guys in case you can’t tell he has a tattoo on the side of his face. A. Tattoo. On. The. Side. Of. His. Face. Well at least he did something with that mop of wavy hair!

Can we all agree that this was the best moment in “Free Willy” EVER?!

“The Santa Clause”

Seriously how cute was that little kid from ” The Santa Clause” with Tim Allen.

Um, what, no. You don’t even look the same guy.

“Little Giants”

We all remember the “Ice-Box” from the “Little Giants” right?

Oh thank goodness! She was looking pretty rough but well done universe, well done.

“Stuart Little”

Were those glasses just for show Jonathan? Good call getting rid of them if not.

“Smart Guy”

Please tell me I’m not the only one who used to watch this show about the ten-year old genius who skipped 6 grades and is now in High School with his older siblings.

Lets not forget that as a child Taj also frequented the cast of “Full House” and is the younger brother of twins Tia and Tamera Mowry.

“Problem Child”

Huh, I’ve gotta say I’m not surprised. A little creeped out but not really surprised.


15 Things Everyone Should Experience At Least Once In Their Lifetime

28 Nov
  1. Touch a cow. I just realized the other day that I’ve never even TOUCHED a cow, and this needs to be rectified. I don’t wanna like milk it or anything, just pet him in between his little horn things, wait cows have little horn things right?
  2. Wear your pajamas to work, just pretend you forgot to change.
  3. Be a part of a choreographed dance. I can’t even begin to tell you how complete I would be if life was just one giant musical number.
  4. Go sky diving or bungee jumping. And if that’s too risky for you (and really, it should be) you could just do one of those indoor sky diving things, they seem legit.
  5. Watch the ball drop in Times Square on New Year’s Eve. You’ll freeze your mittens off, won’t be able to see or hear anything Dick Clark has to say, you’ll be in a crowd of 4 million, standing for 8 hours, unable to move an inch, but it’ll totally be worth it.
  6. Jump off a stage to crowd surf. I know this might seem far-fetched that we’ll all get our shining moment on a stage looking out into a crowd of people who adore us and are praying we leap off the stage and onto their awaiting hands, so us non musically or otherwise inclined folks are just gonna have to get risky. Talent shows, conferences, award ceremonies, graduations, wedding toasts…..make your move.
  7. Swim in a part of the ocean that has that clear blue water you can see right through.
  8. Sleep outside on a trampoline.
  9. Be a part of a food eating contest, but make sure it’s something really yummy like tacos, or Oreos.
  10. Watch a movie on the hood of your car at a Drive-In movie theater.
  11. Be the Maid Of Honor/Best Man at someone’s wedding.
  12. Get lost in a corn field, or you know whatever crop field you happen upon.
  13. Jump into a body of water fully clothed, shoes and all. And if you’re feeling really crazy do it “Dawson’s Creek” style, with 5 of your friends after an all nighter study session.
  14. Success, as long as you’re putting forth the effort, we all deserve a little success.
  15. And like build a house with Habitat For Humanity, cause it’s a nice thing to do.

Highlights Of The Coming Week: Nov. 21st – Nov. 27th

17 Nov

I know I’ve slacked like a TON on my “Highlights Of The Coming Week” posts, but no worries I’m bringing it back. Ish. Plus the only thing we missed was Halloween and Kim Kardashian filing for divorce. No one saw that one coming right?

Sweet looking turkey!

Monday the 21st –

Two years ago today, I got married. Wow, that happened fast. Two years filled with learning how he likes his dress shirts ironed and learning that I hate ironing with a passion. Two years of learning how to cook a proper meal and I still sometimes burn the toast. Two years of learning to push and pull together, instead of against each other. Two years of “Okay fine, lets bet!”, when 90% of the time he wins these bets and with all bets resulting in a full body massage from the loser, I should probably stop betting him (Trust me I’ve tried, every time I lose he gets the “I’m not betting you anymore!” speech. But seriously why is what appears to be the bottom of the banana actually the top!? I have serious problems with losing that bet). Two years of waking up with a smile on my face, cause he’s mine and I get to keep him for always.

Tuesday the 22nd –

This is the day everyone should go see “Breaking Dawn Part 1”. this way were not ALL at the midnight showing dressed as Bella with our “TEAM EDWARD” signs. Who me? Oh no I won’t be doing that.

Wednesday the 23rd –

Everybody should starve themselves this day, so we can all have maximum capacity available for tomorrow. This is a good idea for everyone except me, cause I like eating on the daily.

Thursday the 24th –

Thanksgiving. Here’s a funny conversation from last Thanksgiving. My husband and I were in New York so Thanksgiving was spent at my Aunt’s house. We’ve all paid attention and remember by husbands from Tajikistan (Russia) right? Okay good. So were all sitting around the table when…

Aunt (to my husband) – So what do you guys do in your country for Thanksgiving?

Husband – <blank stare on his face, trying to determine if she’s joking or not>

Me (to my Aunt) – Uh, you remember the story of the pilgrims and the indians right?

Aunt – <confused look> Yeah.

Me – I’m pretty sure that only happened in America.

Aunt -Ohh, right.

<The room erupts in laughter as my Cousin drops to the floor, doubled over in pain from laughing so hard>

….And that’s basically how our family does Thanksgiving.

Friday the 25th –

Black Friday! I love that black friday feels more like a holiday than most holidays! And it’s probably my most favorite day of the year. Even when I worked at Best Buy and had to work it. I loved seeing all the crazy people standing outside at 4am, rushing in the doors as soon as the clock struck 6am (even though that’s unnecessary at Best Buy since they have a system where they hand out tags to the people when their in line outside so they’ll already know if they can get what they’ve come for), and working a 10 hour shift only breaking to enjoy the catered lunch in the break room. Ah the good old days. But what I love more than working a hectic black friday morning is getting to shop and be one of those ridiculous people who freeze their ass off for 3 hours just to get a copy of “Harry Potter And the Deathly Hallows Part 2” on Blu-ray for 9.99! Seriously folks, Best Buy, Harry Potter, 9.99 (or 6.99 if DVD is what you fancy), midnight, be there or be square.  And don’t even get me started on the Memory Foam bath rugs at Wal-Mart for 6.97.

Saturday the 26th –

Uh nothing happens this day.

Sunday the 27th –

Or this one. Except it is National Pins And Needles Day, whatever that means.

16 Nov


Guys, guys, guys! I know this is probably way less of a big deal than I’m making it out to be but the website HelloGiggles posted a story I submitted to them.  *small dance party* Okay, Okay *LARGE dance party!*

If you’re not familiar with HelloGiggles then I suggest you get acquainted and fast. The website was co-founded by Zooey Deschanel, Molly McAleer, and Sophia Rossi. It’s a great place to read up on beauty tips, how to’s, rants and raves, and of course a little something by yours truly.

Really, really I’ve been a huge fan of the website ever since my cousin introduced me to it a few months ago. My cousin who by the way made this fantastic picture to go with my post! Much love to analizamedia! You can follow her on twitter @analizamedia and check out her other awesome images!

It never fails, I always read something on their that makes me laugh or something I can relate to. So to be a part of it, no matter how minute, is a huge honor and something I take great pride in.

Honestly and truly it feels like a small success. One more time, everyone together this time…*LARGE DANCE PARTY*

Check out HelloGiggles HERE.

And my post HERE.

Thank you ladies…


Things That Used To Be Cool…Or So I Thought

15 Nov

Remember when you were younger and you used to do things that you thought were super cool, but now it’s overly apparent they weren’t cool at all, even then. That basically sums up my childhood. A note to my former (and much lamer) self…

Dear 15 Year Old Me,

Put down the baggy clothes and scrunchies. Like ASAP. Don’t worry about collecting ALL of the beanie babies, trust me they will have no value in 10 years, despite what they’ll have you believe. Except for that platypus with the same birthday as yours, still be on the look out for that little purple guy. That trapper keeper and caboodle you think are “the bomb” are so not, also lose “the bomb” and don’t even think about adding the word “diggity” to it. Pogs are just little cardboard circles, like really, what did you do with those? Something about a slammer?! Right? Right?

Oh my God are those overalls?! And what is that horrible claw like headband thingy in your hair? Don’t even tell me you just bought some new butterfly clips. I don’t care what your mother tells you, those are awful. Don’t bother naming your Furby or your Tamagotchi, they’ll be out before you know it. You can spend hours learning how to do cool tricks with your yo-yo though, you’ll be the coolest kid on the block when you show them all how to do the “sleeper” on that thing. Sega who?

Oh and remember when you thought it was cool to dress the same as someone or everyone? Like the whole family wearing the same shirt on vacation and thinking it was awesome. Or the only thing you asking for the Christmas when you were 14 was those pull away pants with the snaps all down the sides? Huh do ya? Do ya? Knock it off, just knock it off.

I know this letter might seem harsh, but trust me, you’ll be better off. Plus you’ll have way less pictures to look back on and wonder if you suffered a minor stroke or something.

P.S. It’s okay to love “Saved By The Bell”, that show is still awesome.

Do you ever worry that the things you think are awesome now are the very same things you’ll look back on in 10 years with embarrassment? Yeah me neither, like everyday.

What’s your middle name? Do you like it?

10 Nov

So every time I post a new post on this thing it always says something really corny like “This was you 36th post, Super Duper!” (no joke, and the adjective is always different but equally as awful). And then it always gives you three ideas for your next post, which as I’m sure you’ve already guessed are just terrible. Things that no one in their right mind would blog about. Things that I could literally answer in three words and then would have very little left to say on the subject. Like this one here, “What’s your middle name? Do you like it?”

Marie, nope I hate it.

Um yeah that’s it. All done. Much thanks for the idea Word Press.

Did You Know That…

10 Nov

If you own a restaurant and you have good ranch, you’ve already won half the battle in my book. And yes there is an actual book. It’s seven installments of 39.95 plus tax and shipping and handling if you’re interested. Which is quite reasonable in my book, yeah there’s a chapter on it. (God I could do this forever)

I’m way cooler than I ever thought you were, and so is my cat.

Gogurt is just 1/4 the amount of an actual yogurt, in a tube.

Chapstick is essential to my existence.

There are only 13 blimps in the world and I desperately need one of them.

Success is the best form of revenge, not that I’m out to get anyone or anything.

My mother threw away all my toys once because I wouldn’t keep my room clean. I asked her to take the bed too, so I wouldn’t have to make it. True story.

I was Fred Flintstone for like 5 Halloween’s in a row growing up.

Going to one of those “Olde Tyme” Photography places and dressing up is my favorite.

Oreos that aren’t double stuffed are basically not even Oreos. Oreo is a funny word. Say it ten times fast and try to tell me differently.

My husband drinks an awful lot of hot water, like water you would brew in a coffee pot for tea, sans the tea, just the boiling hot water, and I can’t even begin to tell you how grossed out I am with this.

“All About Us” by He Is We is my new jam.

This is about the most boring and random list of crap EVER, but I do hope you enjoy it.
