I hope that you all have a great day with your family and friends!

But, let's not forget the real reason why we are celebrating today: because Jesus Christ died for our sins and rose again on the third day! Isn't that just spectacular?! I mean, He loved us all so much that He died, just so that we could live and be forgiven and not have to worry about anything. That's a pretty stinkin' awesome kind of love right there.

See you around these parts tomorrow so you can catch up with me and my Weekend Shenanigans with Sami.

Happy Easter!

Easter is my favorite, just like link-ups.

I have been spending a lot of time on Pinterest lately because I find myself getting bored very easy. But also, because I have the app on the home screen of my phone and sometimes scrolling through Pinterest inbetween customers at work keeps me smiling, even though I want to hit all of them with a loaf of ciabatta. Did I just say that?

I also love holidays, and Easter is one of my favorites. So, I am very excited with the holiday fast approaching because it's just a happy holiday. The weather gets nicer, I can wear a dress to church and the food surrounding the holiday is also extremely yummy to my tummy.

Combining my reoccuring love for Pinterest and my love for the Easter season, I bring to you my favorite Easter pins - I totally apologize in advance that this is all food. Actually, no. Sorry I'm not sorry.


Don't these all look so stinkin' yummy? I could barely help myself from liking and pinning all of these recipes. Looks like I just may have another Friday night of baking ahead of me this week. Awe, I spoil my co-workers!

I am also taking today to do another cool link-up:

GFC Lovin
I will see you all around these parts tomorrow! Have a happy hump day.

Was that in my thought bubble?

I think alot. How 'bout you?
I also talk alot, do you too?
Sorry, I thought that was going to be like Dr. Suess and sound cute. But, I don't think that I really accomplished that the way I wanted to. Oh well. Life goes on.
Today I was inspired by the conversations that I have with...myself. I love the conversations that I have inside my head. No one really understands me like I do, so I decided that I would share some of the things that me, myself and Irene and I talk about on the regular. Hopefully you can find this amusing and not want to commit me to the looney bin just yet.
To get my thoughts rolling, I decided to enlist a friend and ask her what she thought the topic of my thoughts should be and she said: men. Well, I immediately started to feel my cheeks blush and my awkwardness come out to play. I will tell you about the thoughts I either a) have about men or b) have when I am around men. Let's see how this is going to go down.

At Work:
Oh, hello attractive customer. Yes, I will throw that garbage away for you even though that is not my job and the garbage is only a step and a half away from you. Gosh, you are lucky that you are a cutie. No, wait. Don't leave! Okay, your sandwhich probably is more important than standing at the counter talking to me.

Waiter, waiter! Don't go to her, I can change your twenty into a ten, five and five ones...even though I just opened and it will wipe out my drawer. I don't even care. You're attractive and I will help you with anything.

Ew. You sit around at the coffee bar for four hours a day. Do you even have a job? You wear cheaply looking suits and then try to talk to any girl that walks by you? Do you not get the hint that they don't like you because in that suit you look like the tin man from the Wizard of Oz? Just, ew.

Sorry, I don't respond to the term of endearment, 'mami'. Call me sweetheart or princess and that's a different story.

With People I Like:
Alright, good! You are like ten feet away from me. This give me the opportunity to check my hair and make sure I have nothing in my teeth. Dangit! You moved. Stay out of my line of vision so you don't see me doing this. That's embarassing.

Maybe if I bat my eyelashes. No, no. That only works in movies. I will look like I have an awkward twitch. Just smile, Marissa. Smile and hope there is nothing in your teeth.

Let me buy you everything in the entire world so then maybe there is a slight possible chance that you will love me. LET ME LOVE YOU.

I am just going to casually walk by and hope that he looks up. When he looks up I will pull the 'Oh, hey, I didn't know you were in this area' face. Or shyly wave. Yeah, that's what I'll do.

Random Thoughts:
Well, hellllooooooo! ;)

I bet he has a super attractive girl....oh, boyfriend. He is attractive and has an attractive boyfriend. Awesome.

Oh. Okay. That's fine. Yeah, just side-hug me and tell me that I am adorable. Because I think it's so cute when totally friend-zone me and treat me like your little sister. Oh man, please go on!

Yuuuup. I just exist. Walk right past me and onto the girl next to me. Totes fine. I will just be standing here, chillin'. Chillin' like a villian, ya know.

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed my awkward and random thoughts about men.
Do you ever think of any of the things that I think of? Please share and let me know I am not alone.

Weekend Shenanigans: Baking, Heels & Marilyn.

It's Monday again. I apologize from the bottom of my little Marissa heart for not being so ever-present around these parts lately. I have been lacking inspiration and trying to get my bloggy mojo back, because I just haven't been feeling it lately. But, after a few days of reading, researching and looking at my life, I think I finally have some material and fun posts ahead for you nice people who stop by here and read what I have to say.

But, because it's like bloggy law that on a Monday you need to re-cap your weekend, I will follow such invisible law. Which also means it's time to link it on up with Sami over at Sami's Shenanigans. I can't say that this weekend was all that exciting, but it was a good one.

photo one // Lonely Friday nights call for baking, right? I baked for a little bit, made myself a little dinner and spent the remainder of my night watching 'Four Weddings'. I brought those lovely little brownies stuffed with Oreos to work on Saturday. My co-workers loved them, obviously! Sometimes you can just brighten a persons day when you hand them a little treat.

photo two // After a long day at work on Saturday, I only felt that it was necessary to go to Target and spend a laege sum of money on these heels that I have been eyeing for what seems to be forever. The five inch heels make my already tall self look like a gosh-dang skyscraper, and I am not complaining. First awesome purchase with my tax refund money.

photo three // Came home from said shopping trip with a little mocha latte and snuggled up in bed and watched "My Week with Marilyn". If you haven't seen it, go watch it. Such a fabulous film.

photo four // These litle suckers - nutella filled chocolate eggs - will be the death of me. My work got these bad boys shipped in last week and I have been staring at them for a while, so I just had to try a few, right? I mean, I need to be able to tell my customers if they are good or not!

photo five // Here is my OOTD from Sunday: mint jeans from Charolette Russe, peach shirt from Charolette Russe, white blazer from American Eagle, teal pearls from Forever 21.

photo six // Had a nice leisurely breakfast with mom after church. A little cheese danish and a nice, tall glass of milk. Nothing beats a little pastry on a fresh Spring morning.

Hope your weekend was a great one. See you back here soon.

Sometimes I just sit here and stare at a blank post, trying to grab at straws of ideas. Some days I get something, other days I steal some ideas and then on those other days, I decided to talk about my totally boring and average life. Today just happens to be one of those days, I hope you don't mind.
If you don't follow me on Instagram, you didn't see the photo I posted of the totally yummy zeppoles we were giving away at work on Tuesday in honor of St. Joseph's Day. If you have absolutely no idea what I am talking about, it's okay, half of the Italians don't even know what it means either. Basically, its just a day to eat yummy cream filled pastries, and eat many of them, because the day only comes around once a year. So, mangia!
Inbetween working, and eating zeppoles, I have been sticking to my new "spring cleaning" resolution by eating healthier. (I swear to you, I only had one zeppole) I have been eating healthier, and working out everyday. I have been feeling better and with my new eating schedule, I have been feeling less hungry all the time. Way to go, me! Now, let's hope this whole new kick in the pants really works.
And inbetween all that jazz listed above, I have also been writing a script, well a skit, for the teens ar my church. They are competing in this competition we call Fine Arts and I am their director. I wrote the script and they have been working on learning some if it on their own. I had my first practice with them this week and I so confident and ready for them to compete - I know they are going to kick it out of the park. Me being their director means that I get to get away from work for a weekend to go and "direct and guide" them when they go to compete. Halle-stinking-lujah. This girls need a little break from all the raviolis and the crazies. And the crazy raviolis.
I hope that you all are doing fine and dandy.

Do I really have to clean that?!

Well, well, well. I hate to break it to all of you. But, it's finally Spring!
I couldn't be more excited about this because Spring is just one step closer to Summer, and I love Summer. It's just so carefree and I am so relaxed and not getting all stressed and crazy. The only time I am going crazy is at work, and even work doesn't stress me out in the summer because everyone is just having fun. Alright Spring, we're gunna let you finish, but I am pretty sure everyone wants Summer.
With Spring being in the air, I decided that I would embrace it with a bear hug and take on the task of Spring cleaning. I was never a big clean freak like my mom, but when I am on a kick, I am on a kick for a good while. I started at the begining of this week to start to not only clean out the obvious things, like the messy drawers, but also other things that could need a little refreshing.
                                                          Source: via Delaney on Pinterest

1. The Hiding Places | I am forever shoving random things in places where I can't see them. I am hoping on cleaning out all the little hiding places I have to shove things and start to throw away things. My gosh, I hate throwing things away. I swear that I am a secret hoarder. I really do need to throw that old movie stub from last summer because it doesn't have any value anymore. Time to clean and organize all of colorful pens, markers and random notebooks that I continue to buy from Target.
2. The Wardrobe | I have been craving new clothes for the longest time. It's totally not helping that I had already gotten rid of so many winter clothes that I feel like I have been wearing the same thing for a month. I am going to go through all of my Winter and Spring clothes and all of my shoes. Once I can comb through all of that nonsense, I am going to treat myself with some new clothes, shoes and if I think that I have been a really good girl, maybe some jewelry - but only if it's on sale!
3. The iPhone of Wonders | Remember how I just mentioned that I am a secret hoarder and hate to throw things away? I also hate to hit the little red 'delete' button on my iPhone. I hate deleting any photos or things because I feel like at some point down the road I am going to be hitting myself upside the head because I deleted that picture I took of my shoes that one time, last month. I really need to bite the bullet and just delete somethings unless they are super important. This is going to be a hard one, I can tell you that right now.
4. The Laptop Creature | Again, much like the iPhone, I really need to just delete things off of my laptop or just organize everything into folders and re-name all of my documents. Because currently half of them have names like "fasnjgtangsg4fagfa5gag" and that's just not working for me.
5. The Tummy | I need to clean out the crapola. I am not going to say that I am fat, but I just really want to tone up and get back into shape. I am super motivated into excercising again and eating healthy. Who said that I can't spring clean out my body?
Are you going to do any Spring cleaning?

Weekend Shenanigans: Green, Shamrocks & Kiddos.

Oh, hi there. I must have taken a trip and fallen off the face of the blog-o-sphere. Sorry about the small comercial break, but I am back on this Monday and ready for the regularly scheduled programing that happens around these parts.
I would take this opportunity to tell you all about my amazing Spring Break. But, that said Spring Break was non-existant. I had one day off that week, and I worked my butt off the rest of the days. So, you can say that last week was merely uneventful. I am guessing that you expected that from me though, right? I lead a boring life: why do I blog? My friends, I ask myself that same question all the time.
But, there is good news! Today is Monday, which means I can link-up and tell you all about my weekend and the the things I actually did do on this moderately interesting weekend. Note: I used the word moderately.
photo one // Friday night I went out to dinner with my parents and grandfather. I was utterly exhausted and not hungry, so I decided to make my clam chowduh smile. Yes, I said chowduh, it's a New England thing.
photo two // My dad, being the best man on the planet, stopped and got me a shamrock shake from McDonalds. Oh my goodness. If you have never had one, then you are not living and need to wait until next St. Patty's Day and scoop one up immediately. I always forget how wonderful they are until I have one again.
photo three // Being a mostly Irish girl working in a place filled with Italians can be slightly intimidating. I decided to embrace my Irish heritage and all of it's green glory and wear my green Converse to work on Saturday. I wasn't working Sunday, so I decided to deck out a day early. All of my fellow Irishmen complimented them.
photo four // Sunday morning as I was emptying the pockets of my Northface, I found this litle slip tucked away. It was a list of the pasta that I needed to unload from the truck the day before at work. I just can't get away from that place, it even follows me home.
photo five // As most girls do when they are alone in their car, I took a selfie. I was rocking my yellow and green for St. Patty's Day along with my leather jacket, clearance aisle Target sunglasses and a little Coral Crush lipstick by Revlon.
photo six // I went to the bakery with my mom for a little something for breakfast. Boy, do I love a good bakery pastry. My mom and I walked out of their with a piece each.
photo seven // Happy St. Patty's day from my favorite little man, Cameron! Isn't he a ham?
photo eight // I went to my baby cousin Annabelle's 1st birthday on Sunday afternoon. She is just the cutest stinking thing. She was totally loving shoving her face into her little cake, along with a little help from her daddy.
photo nine // I was fortunate enough to get a hold of the little princess, before she fell asleep, that is. I got my hands on and played with her for a little while until she started to get those heavy eyelids and was whisked away to a nap.
Hope you all had a great day enjoying being Irish, whether it be all year 'round, or just for the day.

Keeping up with Marissa: forget the Kardashians.

I can't believe that it is already Thursday and I am another day closer to going back to classes on Monday. Oh, spring break, how I will miss this week off to do the things I really want to do. Speaking of the things that I have been doing, I feel like I really haven't beeing doing any life-blogging. If that makes any sense at all. I have been very emotional lately, as I am sure you guys can tell from my previous posts. But, I am going to fill you in on the recent happenings in my life. Which, granted, still aren't very exciting, I like to think I can lead an interesting life every now and again.
photo one | Tuesday I had the wonderful opportunity to actually take some time out for myself and go and get my hair done. Keeping up my blonde persona takes hard work! Dark roots were giving me a head ache and they needed to be gone. I went to a new salon near my work and I absolutely love how she did it and how it came out. I just sat back, relaxed, sipped my mocha iced latte and listened to Rihanna. Unfortunately right after the appointment, I had to run to work. Sad face.
photo two | I spent Tuesday night with Felicia. I was having a really rough afternoon after my hair appointment because I am a girl and I overthink everything and happen to be very dramatic. She met me up at my house after I closed and we headed to dinner together, then rushed over to Target and picked up some things for the ultimate pathetic single girls' party. We spent the night watching Dance Moms, Preacher's Daughters and then topped it off with Easy A.
photo three | Wednesday morning Felicia and I went out for breakfast to a local coffee shop. I grabbed a hazelnut coffee and a muffin to tie me over. It was a good time to sit back and get in gaear for the morning. And by morning, I mean, when this photo was taken, it was already around 11 AM.
photo four | After our breakfast/lunch - brunch - we headed to the movie theater (after another quick trip to Target, oops!) and saw Oz: The Great and Powerful. It was a good movie, and I am glad I saw it. Was it spectacular? Not really. Half the time I thought we were in Wonderland instead of Oz. But, the always handsome James Franco kept me entertained. If you want to go see it, go. It was a good time.
That's all that is really going on in my life at the current moment.
Hopefully some point in time I can actually be interesting and have you all love me.

Wise words from the peanut gallery.

Woah, hello there friends.
Sorry I haven't been around these parts for a while. I have been picking up extra work shifts, getting my hair done and then having mental breakdowns spending quality time with my best friends. Now is the first time since Sunday that I have been able to touch my laptop. So, sorry about going MIA there for a hot minute.
I spent a lot of time scrolling through my favorite blogs, and going through their archives. Does that make me sketchy? Just a little bit. Okay, I can live with that judgement. But, I was going through one of my favorite blogs Cupcakes & Cashmere, which is written by the lovely Emily. I saw that she made a manifesto because she was inspired by a pin she saw on Pinterest. Reading her list really inspired me to make my own manifest on things that I believe in.
I wrote a manifesto back in a writing class in high school. I am pretty sure mine was probably on being a performer or being artsy, shocker eh? Well, I decided to do one more based on my life and the things that I hold close and true to me. Here goes nothing.
I believe in dressing like you are going to meet Adam Levine and indulging yourself in whatever cravings you are having.
I believe in crying when you have to, to feel better, and laughing to help you get over it.
I believe in big, drawn out bear hugs.
I believe that an espresso can do no wrong and it can only do things amazingly right.
I believe that handwritten add a personal touch to any and all thoughts.
I believe that a girl is only as powerful as her nail polish.
I believe that you should take photos of everything, even if you look silly doing it.
I believe that a freshly opened chocolate bar and a little Real Housewives can be just as good as your best girlfriend.
I believe that smiling even when you are angry can put you in a better mood.
I believe that if you live each day without fear there is nothing that you can't do.
I believe that there is nothing more powerful than the lyrics of your favorite song.
-    -    -    -    -    -    -    -    -
What would be on your manifesto?

Friday Fun: True Colors iPhone Wallpaper.

As you have been reading this past week, your girl here has been getting a little heart felt and emotional. Did you really think that I was going to stop today? When I am on a role, I stay on that role until I am fully over it. Fortunately, thanks to my amazing friends and family that have been around me supporting me and giving me advice, I am ready to just move on and work on me and what makes me happy.
I guess you could say that today's Friday Fun is dedicated to all the supportive people in my life. They have shown me the best of themselves and I am so grateful for them, so I thank them: with Cyndi Lauper.

Have a good weekend, chickies!

Over. Over. Over.

I am the first to admit it: I need third, fourth and fifth opinions before I do something. I need to ask everybody and their brother, and if that brother has another friend or animal around, I will also ask them. I just need verification or support for the decision I am going to make. It may be something as little as a pair of heels - no wait, I always buy the heels, no matter what - or whether I should go up and talk to a guy that I think is cute. Everyone's opinion is welcome. Whether I listen to them is a totally different story. I like to see what other people think and get some different views on things. But, essentially, I will always do what I want. Whether I spend $30 on heels I don't need, or want to vomit the entire time I am talking to that attractive male.
See, that's easy to say, right?
I do what I want.
I like to say "I do what I want" and think that I am actually doing what I want. But, am I actually letting other people affect my choice? That, I don't know. Is it possible? Abso-stinking-lutely. But, I am currently trying to make a conscious effort to (really) do what I want. Yes, I will always ask for other people to chime in and tell me what they think, but I am not going to let me persuade me to do something I don't want to do. Why? Because, I do what I want. Not what you want. Not want my friends want. Not what Taylor Swift wants. Not what your dog wants. What I, Marissa Faith, wants.
I found this little mantra on Pinterest and I couldn't have agreed more, so clearly I had to make a little word graphic, you know. I am finally going to do what makes me happy, and do what I want. I don't care if I look like a fool or wear heels too high I fall over. I will do it, learn from it and move on.
Anyone else with me?

Running with the big dogs.

I have been having this inner struggle for a while now, but I guess I just got to really thinking and talking about it lately. I thought I would share it because, maybe other people are feeling the same way, or maybe I am just being crazy and thinking way too much - I have been taking a ton of showers lately, and that is where I do my best thinking. But, anyways: I have been thinking about how I am a little dog, trying to run with the big ones. Woof, woof.
Ever since I was little, I was always friends with people older than me, and I tend to get along better with people who are older. I don't know why, but I always did and always do. I would either be able to act older, maybe I was just more mature, or I would bring out the childish side in the other people. When I was young, all my friends were atleast 2+ years older than me. Not only were my friends older, but so were all my cousins in my family. I was the baby everywhere I looked. Now, when I am a few months shy of nineteen, I keep looking around me and seeing that I am still just a pup compared to all the big dogs around me.
In my group of close friends, I am the second-youngest, even though we are only seperated by months in most cases. I am the youngest grandchild on my mother's side of the family, which is the side we are closest to. I am one of the younger members of the staff at work; when I first started almost four years ago I actually was the youngest at the ripe-old age of fifteen. And now here, in blogland, I am one of the youngest bloggers that I have come in contact with. I am forever trying to be a big dog, but I can't measure up. I will always be young.
I find it hard because I don't see myself as younger, and most of the people I hand around with think the same of me. Michele, who is turning twenty in just two weeks, always thinks that I am her age.  Maybe it's because I am more mature than a typical eighteen year old? Maybe it's the way I carry myself? Maybe it's the way I talk and use my speech? I am not totally sure what it is, but I just know that in my head, I don't think of myself as being young, or younger, for that matter. I see myself as being on an equal playing field. I get along with people of all ages, and can be comfortable with them, and vice-versa. I sometimes like to consider myself ageless. I conform to the age that I am around. If I need to be serious with a fifty year old, be playful with a two year old, be flirty with a twenty year old or be silly with a teenager.
I have become frustrated with the idea of age and putting people into categories based on age. I actually came across a wonderful quote that sums up how I am feeling about all of this:
"Age is an issue of mind over matter.
If you don't mind, it doesn't matter."
- Mark Twain

Tuesday Tunes.

If you are anything like me, you have been jamming out to "Locked Out of Heaven" by Bruno Mars every time it comes on the radio. I am not going to lie: I dashboard drum and whip my hair back and forth to this song whenever I hear it along my travels. The worst thing I ever did was download the song to my iPhone. It's on my "running playlist" and whenever it comes on, I always think of the Victoria's Secret fashion show and how amazing those girls looked. It gives me some motivation to run my Nikes a little faster on the treadmill.
It's no secret that I love Bruno Mars. He is a handsome litle devil who can sang. His little fedoras and island jams always make me happy. So, when I knew his album was coming out I was determined to get it - or at least listen to it. I have listened to the whole album on Spotify numerous times, but I never got around to buying it: that is, until this week. I finally obtained the album on my iPhone and I am just so totally obssessed with it. So, Bruno Mars is going to be the theme of today's Tuesday Tunes. I don't think you all will mind, right?

When I Was Your Man | Bruno Mars
Currently, I am pretty sure evry female all over the world is obssessed with this song. I mean, they have good reason. This song got me the first time I heard it. I got a little choked up and say him banging it out on the piano and I just shed a little tear for him. I just wanted to hug him and tell him that everything is going to be okay and he can buy he flowers, hold my hand and spend his hours with me.
Natalie | Bruno Mars
I am pretty sure it's the beat that has me loving this song. It sounds like a revenge country song, but it's Bruno Mars. I don't know the proper words to describe this song. It reminds me of that Maroon 5 song Ladykiller. I am not sure why, but it does. It's just a good jam and Bruno is just flawless with his vocals all over the joint. 
Show Me | Bruno Mars
One of the main reasons why I love Bruno is because he has such a wonderful range. He can sing pop music, he can go soul and gospel and then he can do this island-reggae stuff. I personally love the feel of this song and how it makes me want to be laying in the sun somewhere getting a killer tan as he just sings this to me. Again, this is also coming from the girl who likes "I shot the sherrif".
Why don't you sit back, grab a drink and have Bruno transport you to a beautiful island paradise with his voice, and all of his hooligans.

Weekend Shenanigans: Movies, Studying & Shopping.

Happy March & Happy Monday!
Since I actually did some post-worthy things this weekend, I thought that I would share them here with you all, and link up with Miss Sami over at her blog for the Weekend Shenanigans. So, I am going to get this little show on the rode, if I may.
Friday night was the epitome of "dinner and a movie". I got out of work around six and then I had to rush home and shower and see my friend who was coming over at six-thirty. For the next hour she proceeded to watch me get dressed and we rushed to the plaza where we flew into Five Guys, grabbed a few burgers, fries and sodas, proceeding to then race to the cinema just in time to make it to the movie. Somehow we managed to shove two burgers, fries, stand up a soda and shove candy into our purses. We made it and enjoyed the movie 21 and Over, which was funny as heck. Added bonus that the attractive Astin Skylar from Pitch Perfect was in the film.
I got a pleasant surprise on Friday night when I saw that a good, old friend of mine was alive active on his Instagram account! He wasn't much of a social media guy, and he barely answered texts, so I was surprised to see him active online. After I saw the photo, I took my messages and texted him quick, totally preparing myself for no response - and I was totally surprised. I got to talking with him for an hour and we caught up a little are planning to make plans with our other friends so we can all be together again and have a little re-union.
My little "waiting in the car before heading into work" selfie & the coffee that keeps me rocking, rolling and packing that pasta like a champ: a beautiful, medium dark chocolate mocha. That's heaven in a cup.
Sunday I decided to finally buckle down and get ready for my mid-term exams that start this week. I went out and bought two packs of 200 count flashcards from the Dollar Store and got to work. I wrote Italian words until they all blended together. That is a current photo of the stack, and I wasn't even done yet. After going through half of the Italian vocabulary, I decided to text a friend and take a little break and browse arond Target. My shopping plan to not spend more than $5 on one item. Misson accomplished! Check out the deals I got: bracelets for $1.08 - because when they are that cheap, you get one in every color - and the socks for $1.99.
I spent my night around the table eating dinner with my parents and grandfather. I snuck away afterwards to paint my toes and nails. I love this color, boxershorts by Essie. It makes me think of springtime, which I am more than excited and ready for. After that, I spent a little time with the pup, who wouldn't look at me because she was too busy trying to catch table scraps. She's such a diva!
I rounded out my Sunday night watching "The Amazing Spiderman" drooling over how totally adorable Andrew Garfield is, while eating a Cadburry Creme Egg. Oh, the life.

Friday Fun: A "FUN" iPhone wallpaper.

Since this week I have been very musical & uplifting, I decided to make an inspirational iPhone wallpaper for this week's Friday Fun, using uplifting song lyrics. How amazing am I at combining different topics? No need for applause, though it is more than welcome.
My cousin Rachel has gotten me obssessed hooked on FUN's new song "Carry On". When I saw it at the Grammy's, I fell in total love with the song. The lyrics are totally great, and a wonderful current anthem for me. I wanted to share this awesome song with you guys, and also uplift you.
