Keep the change, ya filthy animal.


Random Thoughts.

Is there anything better than eating a plain, cheese pizza while watching Home Alone? I don't think so. 

Is it March yet? All these pictures of Peeta, ahem, I mean Hunger Games, are making me really excited. Please tell me you've read it? And tell me you're all aboard the Josh Hutcherson as Peeta train. 

I used an eyelash curler for the first time tonight. Me likey. 

I like Christmas specials. Especially, the variety show kind. The cheesier the better. I'm talking to you, Michael Buble. Thanks for not disappointing tonight. And an extra hooray for including the Biebs....the 12 year old inside of me thanks you.

Cold weather is fun. At least for a month or two. Know what I like about it best? Mittens and hats. And sweaters. And ice skating.

When I hear Killing Me Softly, I have to fight off the strong urge to say "two times! two times!"

That is all.

I am LOVING all the great knit headband you are wearing these days! They look so gorgeous on you! I'm an eye leash curler fan too, although your lashes are on their own level of awesomeness to start with.

You my friend are fabulous!

Emma Frances said...

LOVING the purple!!
And I saw the trailer for Hunger Games for the first time Friday night and I about died. I'm SOOO EXCITED! And my husband thinks I'm a little crazy because of the enthusiasm, haha.

.jimaie.marie. said...

Haha, the title of this post made me laugh b/c that's my son's favorite part of Home Alone - he quotes it all the time!
Also,I am SO STINKIN EXCITED about The Hunger Games!! I can't wait to see how they translate it all to film, it's going to be awesome no doubt.
Your eyes look kind of AMAZING in these photos, your lashes are so long!
Thanks for stopping by my little blog! <3

Haley K said...

i totally read your post title in the voice of that guy in the movie that Kevin watches in "home alone" ;) And watching that movie while eating a plain cheese pizza sounds AWESOME. I'm following your lead asap.

your eye lashes are amazing girl!! just like 2 of my sisters...they don't even need an eyelash curler. i looked back at your old photos and your eyes are gorgeous without using it, but it sure is fun to make them pop even more :)

and yay for mittens, hats, scarves, and ice skating!! i'll have to do that next winter...not quite going to go with this baby in my belly ;)

Brooke said...

Just from the title of this post, I knew it was going to be good. You are so cute (eyelash curlers scare me).

Laura Elizabeth said...

Yes!! Haha, I do the same thing with "Killing Me Softly". It must be a white girl thing :)

That headscarfy thing looks great on you. The purple is a fab colour for you. Also, I am about to catch up on all the posts I missed so expect a comment spamming from me!

The Frat Pack + Me said...

I loved Hunger Games. Cannot wait for the movie.
Love me some eyelash curler!
I ALWAYS say, two times two times!!!! Ha!

Alaythea said...

I'm finishing up a Stephen King series I'm reading then I'm starting The Hunger Games! The movie looks amazing and they filmed parts of it right down the road from me! AND I couldn't love without an eyelash curler!!!

Shannon said...

I am so stoked for the Hunger Games movie! I read the entire series in a week. It was just so good!

Cindy P said...

I love that first picture of you! You're so pretty, Ashley!

Also, I've heard of the Hunger Games but I don't even know what it's about... so pathetic, I know, but oh well.

And the only reason I like cold weather is the clothing and accessories, too. =)

Katie said...

eyelash curlers are God's gift to any ladies eyes. I had some. They broke! I need new ones .. NOW!

I saw the previews for the hunger games and it looks uh-mazing. Even though, I have not read it yet.

On my bucket list :)

Chippy said...

Cute Post Swoopie,
There is nothing better than watching Home Alone with a large Cheese Pizza this time of year. Not real sure who you speak of but I do know you are looking forward to that movie. Just a note for our good friend Michael. Tell the Biebs to pull his pants up! You might have to tell him two times! two times!

LOVE YOU AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

My Journey With Candida said...

Love the headband. I am on the hunt for one I can wear while checking out the Christmas decorations in NYC in a couple of weeks.

Shutterbug said...

my fav xmas special is the original animated "the grinch who stole christmas." it is a classic!

Susan said...

Ahhhhh..... The Hunger Games! I can't wait.... and neither can my 14 year old daughter that is loving some Josh Hutcherson. I think I need to re-read the books before March...... on my list of things to do. And Home Alone is the BEST..... pizza, popcorn and coke!

Cara-Mia said...

Home Alone! I haven't watched it yet, but it's on my list. :)

Cannot wait for the Hunger Games.

Amanda said...

Such a cute outfit! I haven't read the series yet (still waiting to get it from the library!!!).

Amber said...

Love that movie. I have this video of my mother in law pretending to shoot this duck hunt gun and I plan to use it for our Christmas video with that quote at the end. I'm sure she is gonna love it

Shalyn said...

Cheese pizza and Home Alone. Nope, nothing better. Peeta over Gale, though? I am definitely a Peeta fan in general but the actor they have for Gale is a hunk!

Hannah {Culture Connoisseur} said...

I love watching Home Alone no matter what I'm eating. Such a fun movie, and I'm never too old to enjoy it. Whatever happened to Maucauley anyways?

Amylou said...

You are crazy awesome!
And I loved all of your random thoughts.
Especially Hunger Games ones!

meghan said...

I love Hunger Games. I cannot wait! I just hope they're already filming the second one because I can't wait as long between them as I did between Harry Potter.

blazebratcher said...

Thanks for your sweet comment! I love your pops of purple! So cute!

kira said...

I'm reading the Hunger Games series right now! I'm half way through the second book and I'm loving it.

Meri said...

Megan said...

I got so excited when I read the title of your post, Home Alone is one of our absolutely favorite Christmas movies (that we actually like to watch all year round). The Michael Buble Christmas special was one of the highlights of my week to be honest. Love him and especially anything with him and Christmas ;D

Love your headband!

rachel said...

there you go again, being adorable....

purple! i love!

and an eyelash curler? really? could i be more jealous? cuz i own one, of course i do, but i am telling the 100% honest truth when i tell you my little blond stubby lashes barely fit into it!!!!!! thank goodness for falsies...

i miss you a bit. is that weird. i have been crazed lately and feel like ihaven't been around to comment and email and i'd be lyin' if i said i didn't miss you. this post made me happy. i need more ashley in my life :)

Sarah said...

you have such beautiful eyelashes already, i doubt you'd even need to use a curler! hehe. :) but like you, i really do enjoy using it - it's like a miracle worker!

and that purple headband looks good on you. love the color. x


p/s: im hosting a giveaway at my blog, do drop by!

threadsandbuttons said...

Ha I thought of Home Alone as soon as I read the title of the post. It's pretty much the best movie EVER! Love the headband :)

misc.alaina said...

Totally with you on the cheese pizza with Home Alone and the Killing Me Softly. Had to Google Peeta/Hunger Games! Looks like I am stuck in the past - ha! Christmas specials do make me feel all warm and fuzzy!!

Janette said...

Wait what?? You had never used an eye lash curler?? For real? So your eyelashes are naturally curly???? LUCKY! I cannot go out of the house with a few lash pinches...You know..once I was curling my lashes and lost my balance and ripped a whole bunch out.. It was bad..and sad. So be careful!

Janette, the Jongleur

PS. I'm gonna say that home alone line today...hopefully they know where it's from...haha

Whitney said...

I've been missing out on so much!! Just had to catch up on all your posts.. =) Love that purple headband on you!
