Lauren is always wearing Maxi Dresses and I think she looks so cute doing it, so I decided to feature her again on my blog…here she is in all of her cute simpleness! But she looks so good! This is what I want to look like in a Maxi.

Maxi Dresses

In light of my recent trip to NYC and a recent viewing of the Sex and the City movie, I’m also obsessing over Maxi Dresses.
I love the scene when all the girls are in Mexico and they’re all wearing them. It just makes me want to indulge and buy one for everyday of the summer. However, I’m very short so it’s a little bit hard for me to find one that doesn’t drown me. I’m going to rely on wedges to help me out though. I love the look with flat sandals is the problem.
Here are just a few that I’m loving. I love the bright patterns and the simple casual stripes. I also just love plain ones, but I don’t think I posted any of those on here.

yes I already posted this one in a previous post, but I LOVE it…

Expectation

Is it so wrong to have expectations?

A lot of people have been telling me lately that I just shouldn’t have them anymore. On one hand I understand that because I shouldn’t set myself up, and keep getting let down, but on the other if someone meant that much to me and I to them (supposedly), shouldn’t expectations be allowed? Shouldn’t you expect them to be there for you and do nice things for you and to love you? Shouldn’t you hope that they’re going to keep their promises? Especially when you love them regardless of their faults.

Obviously I know that some people aren’t going to do these things because of selfishness or other reasons, but I don’t think that you should give up on your expectations. It’s kind of like settling.

However, I feel like William had it right…expectation can cause a great deal of heartache. Unfortunately I know this firsthand. I’m sure most people do. But I’m not going to give up on expecting to be treated well. I may not always act like it or feel like it, but I know I deserve it. I just hope that one day I find someone that is going to fulfill those expectations. Let’s be honest, they’re not that big. I’m a pretty simple girl when it comes to love.

I think they’re so cute!
Reason #1 for wanting Hunters:Keira Knightley Reason #2 for wanting Hunters: Marissa Miller

I’m back!

I love New York!

I’m pretty sure that I want to move to NYC forever. I’m pretty sure I’m made for this city. I love walking all over the place. I love all the people. I love the hustle and bustle. I love the shopping and the fashion. The only thing I would miss is trees. But I could go to Central Park.

Ah I just had the best weekend ever! I’m so sad to be home already, but at the same time I guess I was ready at the same time. It’s always nice to be back in your own bed. I had so much fun though.

Ten Day “You” Challenge – Day Ten

Day 10 – Ten Secrets
I love the book Post Secret! Too bad my secrets aren’t that fun! Well at least not the ones I would post publicly on here! I might have a few, but those would be the ones I would save to mail in for them!
1. My full name is Kristin Rose Davis.
My middle name is for my mom’s name Rosemary. I love my middle name. A lot of people hate theirs. I also love roses, possibly because of my name…or because I just think they’re gorgeous. I love the peach colored ones with the darker tips the best! And of course, who doesn’t love red roses? My dad also had a right hand ring made for me when I was 21, that looks like a vine with flowers on it. My mom got one that is a little different, but very similar so it’s kind of fun. I love it. If you ever want to make me happy, get me roses! (well any flowers would do:) )

2. I have had a lot of nicknames.
I’m not sure what it is, but I tend to get a lot of shortened versions of my name or nicknames. Maybe because Kristin, Kristina, Kristy…etc is such a common name? My dad has always called me Deebug. In high school my water polo coach nicknamed my Skeeter because I was really skinny and fast so when I swam on top of the water I looked like a little water skeeter I guess…well needless to say all of the parents and teachers etc started calling me that and it stuck. I sometimes wonder if half of the parents knew my real name. (plus there were a few Kristin-ish sounding names when I was a freshman, so I guess it worked out). Then over the course of high school and throughout college somehow multiple groups started calling me KD. Not sure why, but lots of people just do. I think that’s what most people use now. But here’s a little list of some of the other one’s I’ve had over the years.
-Deebug
– Skeeter
-KD
-Kris
-Tweet
-Toon
3. I have a slight case of OCD
It’s not all the time and it’s not with everything, but every now and again the perfectionist side comes out of me and I HAVE to have everything perfect. My office desk has a place for everything. Same thing with the files on my computer, etc. Then I’ll go through these cleaning phases where I just scrub and srcub or I’ll clean everything out of my closet every few months. If you walked into my room you might not know this by looking at it, but I know exactly where everything is. I’m an organizing monster!

 

4. I’m obsessed with the number 3
This goes along with #3 actually. I really do do things in 3’s. I’m weird. First of all 3 is my favorite number. I always pick a number with the number 3 in it somwhere. That was my number in high school. But yes, sometimes my OCD kicks in and when I do something I do it in my head 3 times. Ok, I’m creeping you guys out now.

5. I tend to think money grows on trees.
This is something I have to work on. I have a problem where sometimes I like to spend money maybe before I have it…SAVE SAVE SAVE! ugh. I wish money grew on trees…

6. I could listen to a song on repeat for hours
If I find a good song, I won’t even listen to anything else. See my addictive personality coming through? I literally will listen to it like 5 times a row in the car or just put it on repeat in my room. I’m such a weirdo.
7. I like to read my horoscope.
I’m an aries.
The Aries is guided by flashes of intuition and irresistible impulse. She is a fiery dynamo who is driven by a constant desire to forge ahead into new territories. When Aries sets her sights on a goal, it becomes an all-enveloping quest. The Aries native never gives up, but moves ever forward with an obstinate force of will. Like all fire signs, she constantly feels vital energy pulsing through her, and she must use that energy or burn up!
Aries strives for independence, and success is defined by a series of distinctive or high-reaching personal achievements. Coming in first or accomplishing the impossible are the ultimate goals. Athletes, entrepreneurs, soldiers, doctors, religious leaders, race car drivers and explorers are all associated with this sign. Aries does not fear danger, and accidents are all too common with this sign, particularly head injuries.
If the Aries seems brusque or disinterested it is because her mind is set on a goal that entirely absorbs her energy. Anything that interferes becomes an annoying distraction. Once the Aries sets her sights on someone or something, that becomes an urgent and immediate priority. If you are that goal, you can be sure that you will be showered with a love that burns as bright as the sun, and you can expect to be blessed with the greatest fire of devotion.
Does it sound me like?

8. If I could be anything in the world I would be a country singer
Big hair and all. I would love it! Or maybe a cardiothoraic surgeon…

9. I’ve only told one person “I love you” and meant it.
I have had “the talk” with people and talked about how I may be falling in love, etc…but I’ve only told one person that I loved that and really meant it. He knows who he is.

10. I still don’t really know what I’m doing with my life.
I think I’m ok with that. I’m just going along with things for now, putting myself out there, putting in applications for school, and hopefully things will all fall together the way they should. Maybe not the way I want, but eventually I will see why.
