Sweat Soup

Hey, y’all! HELLO! We don’t have much news, but what we do is a HOT topic. 😉 Oh, ACG… Oh my my my.

THE HEAT OF THE SUMMER IS UPON US AS WE APPROACH THE END OF JULY, especially in our region of the nation. Nearly every day this week the weather app on my phone has reminded me to be cautious due to extreme heat. Walking outside has been voluntarily becoming ingredients in sweat soup (contents: sweat, 100% humidity, the probability of skin cancer, and deodorant that lasted .2 seconds; WARNING: may result in spontaneous human combustion). The app said 87 and the real feel portion said 104 one day. That’s insane.

How do we combat this? We have no idea. We’ve just come to accept that it’s hot in the summer; it was hot in the summer in the past, and it will always be hot in the summer. Well, until our impending ice age, BUT FIRST WE MELT!

Stay safe out in the heat, my dudes. Wear your sunscreen, and please wear your deodorant, even if it won’t last. My words of wisdom: stay in the AC, if possible. Yessssss, do that!

Drive safely away from the sun!!!

Keep your heads in the freezer and your feet in the pool! ❤ 😉 😛 🙂 😀 O.o

Pizza My Heart

Hi! Hey, y’all! Tonight has been inspired by supper. By pure coincidence, we both had pizza for supper, so we thought we might share with you a little bit about our preferred pizza experience. It’s the universal meal: sleepovers, rewards for clubs and teams, and family meals. Basically everybody loves some kind of pizza, and why not give it the place of honor that it’s due.

Of course, there are some Not So Great pizzas out there, so we thought tonight we’d share with you our qualifiers for a good pizza experience.

 

  1. The sauce must be good, and there must be enough of it.(Sauce texture has to be appropriate. Nothing too chunky. Truuuuue.)

  2. The crust can’t be too thick or too thin. If the flavor gets absorbed by bread, you’re doing it wrong. If you’re eating off a cracker, you’re making a questionable decision. (Handmade is my personal favorite, and I also like when the bottom is toasted and crunchy while the top under the sauce is still a little squishy.)

  3. Closely related, the crust should be able to support the entire structure of the pizza. I don’t want to bring this to friends and eat it in a living room having to use a plate, really, much less a fork. (I think napkins aren’t cool, but I like pizza that would do just as well served on a napkin as a plate.) Napkin opinions differ, but that aside, same. If you want to eat pizza with a fork, be my guest, but it should not be necessary!

  4. The flavor of the cheese on a pizza has to be rather specific. It cannot be too salty, but it has to be at least a little salty.  And, please, for the love of every pizza, do not burn your cheese!!! It should be melted (YES) and thickly layered (ALSO YES), but do not burn it. The way to know it’s done right? Does it stretch? If yes, you’re good. If no, you’re just wrong. 😉

  5. Do not try too hard (as with all things). Pizza is not supposed to be gourmet or frou frou. If I want something that has potential to be in a five star restaurant, I’m probably not going after pizza. Please make something casual and fun. Pizza, after all, is an American food. We all know that Americans really and truly are not known for having the most divine food choices. Please don’t soil that reputation.

 

Pizza preferences can vary vastly from person to person, but we both stand by these qualities. Although, I guess we won’t shame you for your pizza choices. I know people that have to have them without cheese or like them without sauce, and I can still be in the same room as them. Before we go, though, we wanted to share our favorite part of pizza: the toppings.

 

I like chicken (and sometimes mushrooms) on my pizza, if given the option. My favorite pizza flavor is Hawaiian, fruit over vegetables any day. ;P Ham and pineapple are musts, but tonight my Hawaiian also had chicken on it O.O (this sounds so good!), so that was interesting.

 

Keep your pizza on the counter and your heart in the sauce!!! 🙂 ❤ ;P 😀 😉 :O O.o

Drive safely, not distractedly by pizza, even though it is great. ❤

The Great Teascape

Hey, y’all! ‘Ello!

So, we graduated about a year ago. That makes most of the classmates approximately nineteen. That being said, week before last we attended a double wedding shower tea for two of them (which is ridiculous! they are children! and they shouldn’t be allowed to be getting married! BUT, hopefully it will work out well, despite my opinion on their age).The interaction was a little stilted (she’s under exaggerating), but my favorite part had to be making the cake balls I took. ;D

The only super enjoyable part of this event was getting to shop and bake together honestly (true). Hats were involved (ew). Food was awkward (and random + there was too much of it). Conversation was more awkward (definitely).  Life was the most awkward (agreed).  Which is to say, while we care about these girls and wish them the best, and a dear friend hosted the event… It was not A Good Time.

No, it really wasn’t. But we went, we ate, we talked, and we were two of three that gave cards (is that weird? I thought you did that with presents?). Then, we left. I have never been so grateful to get in ACG’s truck. I have never been so grateful to have a pending errand to help my dad with that got us a reason to leave.

 

So, next time you find yourself in this sort of situation, we bid you a safe drive away from it. 😉 ❤

Keep your puns in the cabinet and your scones in the kettle. 😉 😀 ❤ 🙂 O.o

Lessons on a Lazy Weekend

Good evening! Hey, y’all!

Life is full of lessons…and not all of them are that vital to your well being or happen during big moments. Sometimes they happen on a lazy weekend like we’ve had…in the celebration of ACG’s spring break, of course ;). The only thing that would make spring break better is if the colleges lined them up, but that’s another rant. Maybe that can be next week’s post, lol. But for now… We’d like to share with you some of things we’ve learned as of late.

 

  1. Never doubt the power of a hug. Or good coffee, but ACG drinks more than me, so I’ll stick with the hugs.
  2. Online classes are messed up; sometimes you find out someone who has not responded to any of your group project work is still in your group after weeks but hasn’t responded because of extenuating circumstances.

  3. Not making your bed won’t result in your death…most likely. So, don’t waste your time. 😉 It’s precious and the universe doesn’t know if your comforter is spread smooth.

  4. Binge watching really is fun. Finishing season one of your new favorite TV show is totally worth leaving you with four hours of sleep.

  5. The best plans are the last minutes ones. ❤ Or, at least, that was how this weekend seemed.

 

Yeah, it was last minute, totally unprepared, and completely a blast. Adventures are great, but so are lazy day weekends. Much better than going to a cold wet baseball game.

Drive safely. ❤

Paint your homework with ostrich eyelashes, and write your canvas in pixels. 🙂 😛 😉 😀 ❤ 🙂 😀 ;P

Cookie Dough

Hey, y’all!!! Hi. So, the all famous question about cookie dough is the topic of the night: Pillsbury or Toll House brand? As if that’s a question… We both agree it’s Pillsbury.

 

We do! We also have about three tried and true ways to eat said Pillsbury cookie dough (whether it’s in the tube or the precut squares).

 

 

  1. A cookie dough milkshake is the absolute best. I am not talking about a vanilla milkshake with cookie dough chunks, but blended cookie dough with a vanilla base. It is amazing.
  2. Take a glob of cookie dough. Put it in the microwave for around 45 seconds (or until gooey). We’ve used it as a dip before with chips for the salty sweet combination, but by itself is also perfectly fine for the melted method.
  3. This list would not be complete without the classic: straight cookie dough in a spoon. Of course we love this option.

 

 

 

 

Drive safely, which is done most easily  while drinking a cookie dough milkshake. ❤

Keep your dough in the shower and your loofas in the dryer! 🙂 ;P 😀 😉 O.o ❤ 🙂

What Not To Do in 2017

Hello. Today’s post has been contemplated long and hard until we finally settled on sharing with you the best toenails of 2016. Not really. While the toenails were a great idea, we decided to acknowledge the upcoming life event. Where did 2016 go? Oh, and hey y’all!!! So, today the real topic is: Things Not To Do in 2017.

  1. The first thing to not do is to dig yourself into any holes too deep to climb out of, verbally or literally. Mainly verbally, because they make ladders and ropes for the literal holes.
  2. The second thing to do is not move to Canada. Look, I know it seems like a good idea. The systems they have in place, you know, actually work, but…don’t do it. Just don’t. Don’t ruin Canada, too.
  3. Don’t get sucked into too many dangerous adventures that might end up injuring you. Living on the wild side is good and all, but you are appreciated and loved by at least one human, so please don’t die in 2017 doing dangerous things.
  4. Question your existence–do not do that. Have a glass of milk, eat a cookie, and remember simpler times. Let’s put an end to the existential crisis.
  5. Get lost in New York City. If you live there, use a map, and if you don’t go to Rhode Island instead.
  6. Eat seven dozens of donuts in ten minutes. You will ultimately void number four, and end up existentialism…if you do not explode your own stomach or choke to death…or something.
  7. Miss out on any opportunities due to fear or stupidity. If you want to try it, figure out how to. If you’re afraid to, see if it’s something you can face.
  8. Don’t forget to drive safely. 😉 In the internet and in other areas of life, 2017 seems like a dangerous year, so why not make it as safe as possible? ❤
    8.5. Never forget to keep your leggings in the library, and…

 

(Happy New Year 🙂 😉 😛 😀 :O ❤ :/ 🙂 O.o)

Dear Us,

Hey, y’all! Hi! Tonight we’d like to take you on a journey to the past… I think everyone has moments in their lives, or even just concepts, that they wish they could go back and advise their past selves on a little better. If you don’t have experience with realizing you made some mistakes or needed to think things through a little better, you probably shouldn’t read this post. Let’s be real. You’re Too Perfect and therefore don’t need any advice. Lol, question me on that ten years ago and I’d have been booted out faster than you could say snap. Even just five years… *sighs* Maybe just three. 😉 I’m just kidding (mostly Not really, but that’s true so it has to be okay.). I am the kind of person who has constantly revised my past decisions in my head (I think there was a time when I was an infant that I questioned whether or not I really should’ve cried about that stomachache), so if you’re anything like that this is a post for you.

 

However, the fact that I was very assured that I wasn’t really wrong on anything and my way was best for most of my life, I have plenty of moments I still realize I was being stupid and ridiculous during. Aha! She admits it. But what ACG is saying is…now you get to watch us critique our past selves and hopefully learn from us.

 

Past, ACG, there was no need to make everyone listen to you. You had no idea what was going on anyway. You had no clue, and they didn’t care if you said anything or not.

To my past self my first piece of advice would be: YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING WITH YOUR HAIR. STOP. LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER. FIX YOUR HAIR. Or, at the least, do not wear a “George Washington” ponytail that is approximately two inches long at the base of your neck. That’s…just… It’s not cute or quirky. It doesn’t make you look like you don’t care. It’s just…Very Confusing. Side note: stop trying to be “cute” and “quirky” in a way that will make boys like you and girls jealous of you. You aren’t somebody’s fantasy. You aren’t there for their curiosity. You are yourself and that is plenty interesting.

Speaking of boys, just stop. Stop running in circles, and stop running off the ones that don’t fit your short-sighted thoughts. They may actually turn out to be cooler than your all knowing self thinks, and being an Auburn fan isn’t a disease. Give them a chance, and for crying out loud don’t tease them about every. Single. Thing. Conversations work, too.

There’s so much advice to give about boys. Wow. It’s okay to say NO in big letters and a loud voice. That should probably be my first piece of advice, but I suppose as long as it gets said. If you don’t want to talk to a guy, you don’t have to. If you don’t want to talk to a girl, you don’t have to. But…as a girl, girls aren’t often an issue and also their listening skills are better. My point being: no isn’t a bad word. They’ll make you feel like it is. The whole world will make you feel like it is. But “no” isn’t an ugly word. It isn’t mean. It’s the truth, and sometimes it hurts. But holding it inside hurts you more. And, love, you are the only one you’re responsible for.

IF YOU WANT SOMETHING GO FOR IT. Try it. If you have the opportunity and you want to and you “pride” yourself on not being dictated by others’ opinions, please, just go for it. Apply for it. Pursue it. You may not regret not per say, but you will see all the reminders, and you will wonder what it was like. You will think you were the biggest idiot when you feel like you don’t fit in the path you chose. There will be days that you’re okay with it. There will be days you smile. But hold on to what you’ve got, and go for what you want.

The last piece of advice I have to offer would be contrary to ACG. Don’t be afraid to have limits. You really won’t regret not going with a boy to your senior banquet/prom/formal/whatever. (I can promise you that will be a bad experience if you do not love him in at least some capacity.) You really won’t regret not going and standing in a loud gym with a bunch of strangers. You won’t regret staying in and reading. You won’t regret taking a moment and knowing what you don’t want just as much as what you do. Which, I guess, ultimately is the same exact advice in ACG’s put we’re approaching the limit from the left this time or something. Do what will make you happiest and most comfortable. No one else. You aren’t here to prove a point. You’re here to live your life.

 

Okay, y’all, keep your breathing even, and count out of order! ❤ 🙂 ;P 😀 :/ O.o 😉 😛 ❤

Oh, and of course, the top advice of the night is drive safely. 😉
