it's been a crazy, mixed up new year so far.

it really has been crazy. full of emotion, stress, tears, gallons of tears, and a whole spectrum of feelings all at once. i know i haven't been around blogging or commenting for a few days, and i can't apologize, because let's face it, we're not blogging robots, we're humans and we have real lives, but hopefully i'm back for now. and i won't dish all the details of my emotional new year because i know that i could receive one or more of these three things: sympathy, understanding, or hate mail/anonymous comments which i hear are running rampant these days, and i'd rather not deal with it. wow, aren't i being weird and incredibly vague? i'm sorry. anyway, i have some new dinosaur toes jewelry to show you, and i have a new dress (thanks to my pop and stepmom, tricia, and the gift card they gave me) that i want to show you in an outfit post, but since i'm completely unprepared, i thought i'd share this video. i've always thought my pop (in case you didn't know, that's what i call my dad) was the funniest person i'd ever met. we went out to dinner with pop and tricia last week, and he was on a roll...


i'm not really sure where the "shteak and appleshaush" thing came from, but i guess when i was in about 8th grade, maybe earlier, it just became something my dad and i said as a joke. "pop, what did you eat for lunch today?" "shteak and appleshaush." always followed by laughter. so random, and it just never gets old.

anyway, i'll have something more for you tomorrow, but until then, i hope you have a happy tuesday, and i hope your new year started well!
