Soon we became automatic seat partners when everyone else opted to sit with someone else or decide they wanted a seat to themselves. I could have kissed them all. Jake and I were sharing headphones and long bus rides to and from competitions. I may have faked falling asleep once or twice... I know I'm a harlot.
After a while, and after everyone openly questioning our relationship status, I decided to tell Jake that I had a thing for him and that I thought he should break up with his girlfriend. He admitted that he had feelings for me as well... But couldn't justify breaking up with his girlfriend because she had done nothing wrong...
Oh my sweet, innocent, charming, adorable, innocent, thoughtful Jacob......
I was pissed. I wrote some poetry, journaled, and vented his stupidity with the vengeance of a scorned woman... Only he was feeling just as bad about it... We never stopped flirting. It wasn't until after his girlfriend attended a band event more than half way through the season that she, on her own, decided that there was more than an innocent friendship between Jake and I. She was a sophomore, I didn't care what she thought. She told Jake about her suspicions and he admitted the truth. A bold move. But effective.
They only dated a week or two more...
By then the band season was over and I told Jake that I didn't want to be a rebound (I know, I know. You have to be upset about a break up to rebound. I was in high school and had very limited dating experience) So I told him that he couldn't ask me out immediately after he broke up with his ex. I wanted him to think about what and why he had done so. I wanted him to be sure about moving forward with our relationship... I was giving him a chance out...
He stuck it out a whole week before asking me out.

I was going to be a senior. The upper classman of upper classman.
My time was split between marching band practices (don't judge me), choir rehearsals where I was the female soloist, and my college boyfriend. We had been dating for about 3 months.
He was a talented actor and handsome in the non-traditional way. His curly blonde hair and rockin'.... voice caught my attention during the summer musical. (me = in blue standing. D = only male in picture............. No comment)
Everything changed when I went to band practice one day. We were all rushing around, grabbing instruments and running into parade block in order to march, in formation, down to the practice field. (anyone reliving their glory days right about now? No? Just me? Damn.)

But is it practical? Does the effect cancel out the concern?
What do you think?

A feminine negative cardinal earth sign
Opposite sign: Cancer
Colors: Dark brown, black and gray
Good traits: Practical, prudent, ambitious, disciplined, patient, careful, humorous, reserved.
Bad traits: pessimistic, fatalistic, miserly, grudging.
Likes: hot, simple food. antiques, history, duties and responsibilities, not being pressured by others having plenty of unconditional love, lots of personal privacy, new books, expensive gemstones.
Dislikes: untidiness and disorder of all kinds, being teased, surprises, new ideas, loneliness, being made to feel useless incompetent, being embarrassed in public
A typical Capricorn has good organizational skills, is neat and tidy, have hardheaded practicality. You have strong work ethic, materialistic tendencies, a conservative streak, conventionality and great respect for authority. You are ambitious, serious and dedicated to duty. You are self-disciplined, responsible and practical but at times, you can wallow in self-pity. Your reasoning ability is excellent and has strong sense of purpose and direction.
A Capricorn may appear somber and reserved in their dealings with others, but once they give the trust, they are a loyal and steadfast friend. Socially oriented, you are willing to work hard for anything you want, and your self-esteem is extremely important to you. You are bright and quick. You are good in detail as well as in insight and conceptual formulation. You are materialistic rather than philosophical. You are capable of falling in love for its own pleasure but love alone will not motivate you to marriage. To you marriage serves a social design.
Star Stone for Capricorn
The beautiful Onyx is your star stone. Onyx is a type of agate that is recognized by the alternating, parallel bands of black and white. If the white layer alternates with a different color then the agate is given different names: if red it's carnelian-onyx, if brown it is sardonyx, and if the second layer is of the pale shades that characterizes common chalcedony it is called chalcedony-onyx. A solid piece of pure black Onyx is dyed. Agates are not always dyed black unless it is called Onyx, (Agate is frequently dyed red, green, blue, etc.)
Capricorn Ruling Planet
Saturn rules the earth sign Capricorn and air sign Aquarius. It plays the role of a taskmaster in the Zodiac. Saturn commands us to get to work and to work hard. Saturn rules time, old age and sobriety. It can bring depression, gloom, jealousy and greed, or serious acceptance of responsibilities out of which success will develop. Learning life's lessons is key to this Planet, in keeping with its role as teacher.
I guess I'm a pretty typical Cap.
What's your sign? (Hahaha... cheesy pickup line! Score!)

I've been trying new things here at Dishes & Wishes. Honesty is needed here. Are you liking the direction? You input is important to me.
What do you think of the fashion posts I've been doing? I'm planning on putting links to the items in the posts so you can find them (and possibly get them for yourself). I will continue to keep things under $50.
How often do you want to see the fashion posts? (I'm trying about once every other day.)
I've decided that I don't like scheduling posts that much and will take breaks on the weekend.
Now for the fun part.
- I'm taking requests for celeb looks. If you email me a picture of the look you want (celebrity look, TV wardrobe, red carpet outfit), I'll do my best to find everything and post it on my blog for you as well as links to items as well as to your blog.
- I'm opening my blog up for questions. So post a question for me as well as a link to your blog so I can get to know you as well. You can do this any time. I'll be as honest and candid as possible.
I'm really excited about this and I'm looking to really forward to it!!!

I got there late. I thought that because it was later in the day, that people would be dwindling down and I'd get in there, get my book signed, and get out.
This is because I had no idea what it was going to be like. I walked into the doors to find the place over run with women. and a line going around the entire inside of the book store. I asked a nearby woman if she was in line to get her book signed. She said no. She was waiting for the second group to be called to get into line.
Waiting to be called into line?!
More than one group?!
Needless to say I wasn't going to wait around for that. Don't get me wrong, I'm a P-Dub fan, but I just wanted to get a book signed for my sister. I didn't need to hold up the line of people dying to tell her how they've changed their lives when I knew she was probably ready to be done. Plus I'd feel bad telling her that I've dreamed of her house as my own. Only minus her. And that her romantic lifestyle of cows, dirt and children are my own. (Minus the cows..... and the dirt for that matter.)
It's just a little creepy.
Maybe I should have talked to her.
So I bought her book and left it up to someone else to make sure it got signed. (I didn't want to inconvenience her...) I picked it up the next day. And it was properly signed.
Ree is the nicest EVER!
She was at the store for almost 7 hours (or something close to that).... That's way longer than she was planning. You go girl!
She's SO pretty. I mean, seriousally, I hope after 4 kids I look that good.
This is me being kinda stalker-ish and taking a picture of someone else getting her book signed.
