Hey Love Lindsey Fans!

I know I’ve been on an extended hiatus from this blog, but I’ve started a new one for a class of mine that has some promise to it! 

 

If you are ever in the mood for tasty recipes, or a dose of my interesting personality (lol) check out College in the Kitchen. It is a new blog of mine that takes a look at easy recipes that I’ve found off pinterest, how I duplicate them and how you can too! 

 

Thank you for all of your support for Love, Lindsey! It was a really fun starter project in the blogsphere! 

Hope to see you on college in the kitchen! 

Love, Lindsey

Special Edition

We interrupt this, well what used to be, regular scheduled blog to bring you something worth sharing: The Newsroom.

I’m not one to follow shows religiously, I usually get into them and drift off once the season really gets going because it all becomes predictable. I may not be a huge fan of surprises, but on TV it’s a different story. If it’s happening on TV it isn’t happening to you. My friend told me about The Newsroom and at first I laughed at him. There was no way I was going to like some HBO show that he did, needless to say we have very different opinions about what is good television. But, I usually need something interesting to do after work that doesn’t involve a computer screen so I gave it a shot.

And boy am I glad I did. It is the most interesting hour of TV I’ve watched in a long time. I love the format and there is just something unique about it, it has something for everyone. It has a great basic storyline, interesting character development, a little humor, a little love, and a whole lot of drama. It is about a prime time newsroom and how they deal with real events. It is how networks probably should’ve, or shouldn’t have, covered certain topics.

They pick real stories from the past year and do them the New Night with Will McAvoy way, and I have to say it is gripping television. I had actual chills in the episode where they covered the shooting of congresswoman Gabby Giffords, and also in the seventh episode where we got Bin Laden.

It is just good quality television. The show returns to HBO this weekend, and I’ve been timing it so I finish the first season and get to jump right into the second. It’s weird, I usually don’t get interested in these types of shows. Yet, I am so pulling for Mack and Will and Jim and Maggie. Watch it, and you’ll see what I mean.

The whole first season is on HBO OnDemand, and I highly advise you check it out if you can. That way I have more people to talk about it with!

Love,

Lindsey

Happy Birthday to me!

Yesterday was my 21st birthday! It was amazing and my friends surprised me and made it such a fantastic day.

I’m the luckiest girl in the whole world, I had a fantastic birthday, I’m a big for the second time and a grand big! and I’m flying to Italy in a few hours!

With that being said, I’m going on a hiatus for the next ten days because I’ll be on my trip and without internet or a computer! Imagine that, me without electronics it should be interesting. My life has been absolutely insane. I screamed last night so loud when I found out I was a big again, there is nothing better. I wanted to cry, I’ve seen my little grow so much as a leader and watched her come out of her shell.

I’m just so lucky, and I’ll miss you all! But think of it this way, I’ll have lots to blog about when I get back!

Ciao Readers!

Love, Lindsey

Easy A

There are few cult classics for our generation, you know really great movies that create a following. One that will always make me laugh until I cry is Easy A. Emma Stone is pretty much comedic genius when it comes to movies like this, and Penn Badgely makes a nice touch as the boy who she always has had crush on.

It’s amazing how great home can feel, and for the simple reason that I can sit on the couch and watch movies like Easy A in complete comfort.  This movie is one of my best guy friends favorite movie, it may be because Emma Stone is just so pretty ,or because her character Olive has some really brilliant lines. I’m a huge fan of a very classy shower scene they feature where she sings “Pocket Full of Sunshine”.

The funny thing is that this movie features a huge cliché, that no good dead goes unpunished. Olive tries to help a friend out by saying that she was scandalous with him to have people stop talking about him behind his back. The guy brings her a present for helping him about lying about having sex with him and it becomes a huge deal and other guys start to use her new-found popularity to do the same. They give her gift cards, and other various things so they can say she slept with them.

It all starts to bite her in the butt, and isn’t very pleasant when people stop talking about these guys and start talking about her. It really isn’t fair, but she put herself in this position. For all this fake action, no one actually asks her on a date. Not having real dates takes a toll. (I know the feeling) Stanley Tucci plays Olive’s dad. He’s fantastic and her parents make the movie. Stanley Tucci is fantastic in every movie he’s in, so you can’t go wrong with him.

I love the humor, and the clever lines. Whoever wrote this movie was a genius in the teenage girl department. Olive is a high school senior, but it is really relate-able for all girls high school and college alike. Isn’t that the best part of movies? Not only laughing, but seeing the truth through someone else’s eyes. How a director or writer sees the world can really open others eyes to what it’s like to be in high school or whatever the content is.

I won’t spoil the ending, although you might be able to guess what happens. This is a great rainy day movie, or when you are just really in the mood to laugh. My guy friend loving the movie goes to show, guys can like chick flicks too! With that being said I’m going to make my dad watch something along those lines.

Happy Saturday from NJ!

Love, Lindsey

Lyrical

I have this thing where I love the lyrics of songs. I will sing a line over and over again if it really hits home. I’m just a fan of what people have to say, even if they haven’t written the lyrics themselves, someone wrote them.

One of those lyrics that I love so much come from Taylor Swift’s “All too Well”.  It has some of my favorite lines, and I mean Taylor Swift singing it doesn’t hurt.

And I know it’s long gone, and that magic´s not here no more
And it might be okay, but I’m not fine at all

How many times do you feel like you will be alright, but you aren’t fine? It’s that really thin line that you can go on, it’ll be alright, but you really don’t feel fine. You don’t feel normal or really ready to tackle the world at full force.

You tell me about your past thinking your future was me
And I know it’s long gone, and there was nothing else I could do

You tell the people in your life that you think will stay about your past, you don’t tell the people who aren’t going to be in your future. There takes a level of trust to tell someone about the events that made you who you are. No matter how long ago it was or why it ended we need to realize sometimes there is nothing else we can do. Some hearts are meant to be broken, fate has a funny way of working those things out. (that doesn’t mean don’t try relationships see my post one man’s heartbreak)

And I forget about you long enough to forget why I needed to

Painfully beautiful that you forget about someone long enough to forget why you ever even wanted to. I’ve been there so many times, you go through a  really painful situation, move on and a year later you forget completely why it was so bad. You think of all the great times, and bury the bad times so far back that they don’t exist in your mind. Oh how heartbreaking it is when you move back into that situation and realize, yeah there was a reason it didn’t work.

And maybe we got lost in translation
Maybe I asked for too much
But maybe this thing was a masterpiece
´til you tore it all up
Running scared

This song really gets me every time right around this point, where it really breaks it down. Things get lost in translation, one person asks for something but it seems like so much more. Yet, maybe they ask for something and the other person just doesn’t want to give anymore than they already are. Game,set, match the relationship is over. Something beautiful torn to pieces because one person walks away. Or in this case runs away scared. (my most common run)

Hey you called me up again just to break me like a promise
So casually cruel in the name of being honest
I’m a crumbled up piece of paper lying here

When that person contacts you again and it breaks you to the core. They said they would never speak to you again, guess that promise is broken like the pieces of your heart laying on the floor. That’s not easy to take, they feel like they owe you honesty. Well integrity can hurt like pinch, stings at first but once its done, its done.

I am just in love with this song, because lyrics say what sometimes we can’t. Go listen to a song to find your favorite lyrics tonight.

Love, Lindsey

Curl up with a Book.

I’m a person that wears her emotions on her  sleeves, pretty much all the time and uncontrollably. The best way to really hit those emotions is through reading a good tear-jerker of a book.

Way back in the sweet summertime I picked a random book up when Borders was still a chain and thought it was going to be some cheesy book, but I picked up Angela Morrison’s Sing me to Sleep and had one of the best book cries I’ve ever had.

The book starts off with the terrible high school scenario, ugly girl with a beautiful voice. Beth, the female lead, gets accepted to an extremely important girls choir and becomes a soloist. As a soloist one of the mothers decides to tame the beast to look a little more like she sounds.

Now onto the actual interesting part, while singing she in a competition in Canada one of the guys from the Amabile all boys choir falls head over heels for her. He falls for her because of a clip of her singing on her show choir’s website. When he meets her of course he looks past her looks and falls for her personality. Yet, there’s a catch Derek (the boy who falls for her) has some issues that are huge obstacles in their path. Also, as if dealing with the Derek isn’t enough her best friend from home confesses he’s had feelings for her for a while.

It doesn’t sound like a tear starter, but if I told you anymore it would spoil the beautiful surprises the book holds. Take my advice, grab a box of tissues and try this book out.  It will be worth it!

Love, Lindsey

Merry Christmas Baby!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a great night!

I hope that Santa was very good to everyone this magical day, there is just nothing better than Christmas Eve and Christmas day. I know I’m going to be enjoying a fantastic feast that my mother has been slaving over all day! I even put on a new outfit that I got for Christmas.

There is one song that I have to listen to on Christmas is “All I Want for Christmas is You” but my all new favorite version is when Michael Bublé belts it out. I almost positive this love/ Christmas song speaks for itself, all I want for Christmas is you!

I don’t want a lot for Christmas, there is just one thing I need. I don’t care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree. I just want you for my own more than you will ever know. Make my wish come true, Baby all I want for Christmas is you.

Just listen to the sweet, sweet lyrics while Michael Bublé melts your heart. Michael, I would love to be under your Christmas tree!

Now everyone go enjoy the lights on the tree, open up any last-minute presents, and stuff your faces with lots of Christmas treats!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a great night!

Love, Lindsey

Penny Lane

Recently, at a family party I heard my least favorite phrase in the human language, ” So any boyfriends yet?”

Although the phrase is completely normal, and a great question to ask a college female, it just doesn’t get me excited when I get to answer, no not yet with the biggest smile I can muster. The whole ordeal reminded me of a book I read a little while back and reread over the summer when I was working as a waitress. I was singing along to Elizabeth Eulberg’s Lonely Hearts Club.

The premise is that a high school girl is tired of boys breaking her friends hearts so she decides to start a club called Penny Lane’s Lonely Heart Club. The book has heavy Beatles references as her parents are portrayed as  Beatles obsessed fans who named their children after songs and made sure that was all they listened to growing up. That’s probably the neatest part of the book, how it brings a classic like the Beatles and shows how it applies to everyone.

In typical chick lit fashion, as soon as the club really starts to take off and builds a following Penny meets a boy that really likes her and she may like him back. Now, here’s the dilemma how can the girl who started a club about being lonely for high school decide to be lonely no more? Basic girl problems right?

So as Penny figures out how to balance the club and going on her first date you see the adorable side of a high schoolers mind, and lets face it when it comes to dating not much changes in college. We still over think things and worry about all the wrong things. It’s a good read for anyone who thought they were heartbroken in high school.

Well happy reading over this nice Christmas break, and have a Merry Christmas Eve, Eve!

Love, Lindsey

Dancing the Night Away.

Sometimes there comes along a song that you just can’t get help but belt out at the top of your lungs. Today driving in the car,  I put on my Sirius radio and Lady Antebellum’s “Dancing Away With My Heart” started to play and I couldn’t help but break it down at a traffic light.

I haven’t seen you in ages
Sometimes I find myself wondering where you are
For me you’ll always be eighteen and beautiful
And dancing away with my heart

This song has such a precious melody that just runs away with your heart, at the risk of being corny it really does. It talks about that lost love that you always seem to think about, even if you don’t want to. When you catch yourself off guard thinking about someone you aren’t supposed to and you think of them in a way that makes them untouchable, like 18 and perfect.

A memory can take you away and that’s what this song does, it jogs that place in your head that is much happier and simpler. People change, but memories if they are kept in a nice plastic container called your brain, stay exactly the same. You can’t change the past, but you can enjoy the little moments like dancing with someone when you were 18 long after they’ve actually happened.

Even if you don’t enjoy country, the odds are you will enjoy this song. So check out a beautiful ballad about young love.

We’re getting to the thick of it, only 5 days left until Christmas!

Love, Lindsey
