The two, Kim who is 28 and Reggie, 24, dated for over two years. A long time in Hollywood standards.
I really thought they were a cute couple and seemed great for each other. Too bad it didn't work out. Hopefully both of them are happy though, that's all that matters.

Anyways, my last job I was definately in a journalism postion. I wrote articles and was a managing editor for a successful blog. Now, not so much. I get to write here on JTG, but it's not the same. This blog is really casual of course.
So last week you can imagine my surprise and excitement when I was contacted by a writer at the NY Post (famous for Page Six)! I was asked to do an interview regarding a taping of the upcoming movie "Funny People."
At the begining of the year I had the opportunity to see Adam Sandler, Seth Rogen, and countless comedians do standup in LA which would be used for the movie. Somehow the NY Post writer came across my blog post (read it here) and wanted to get my insight into the night!
Of course I agreed and did the interview, which came out this past Sunday. Unfortunately he must have not liked the movie because the article wasn't exactly positive. My quote used wasn't the best out of all that I provided, but it was used to accomplish what he was going for I guess.
Check out the NY Post article now to see my five seconds of online quotage fame =)
Also, be sure to catch the flick this weekend when it opens in theaters.
Here's a video of one of the actors, Aziz Ansari, in character, playing Raaaaaaaandy (that's with eight A's). He's so hilarious, even though the jokes are pretty dirty. I hear he isn't in the movie much, but I give him props for being such a "funny person."

It's looks a little funky here, but it's really cute!
I also found a really cute button up dress in navy blue with a flower print. It's very dainty (ruffles on the shoulders), and the style looks very vintage. The dress is about the same price as the one above. I'll be wearing it to a bridal shower this weekend and try to take pictures.

If you chose pair #2, you're right!
The first pair are Women's Merona® Zabrina Dot Rain Boots from Target that sell for $24.99 and the second are $59.95 Chooka Signature Printed Rain Boots from Nordstrom. That's not a crazy difference, but it's over $30.
Upon comparing the details of both boots, the only difference is that the Nordstrom boots' calf buckle adjusts to fit leg sizes--which is great because I have large calves. The Target buckle looks like it is just for design. So in my case, if I were to purchase one of these pairs I may have to go with the Chookas. However, if size isn't an issue I would def go for the cheaper pair.
It's so crazy to me that Fall items are coming out in catalogues already. It's barely summer! I do like the whole rain boot trend that seems to cross all season lines, though. There are so many different styles to choose from now. Check out these awesome pairs, all at Target retailing for $24.99:

I hope you have a wonderful day and take the time to reflect on the meaning of this holiday. Please take a moment to realize how lucky we are to have the rights and privileges that we do. We may not be a perfect country, but it could be MUCH worse. And most importantly, please give thanks to those past and present who have fought to ensure that we have freedom. Regardless of your views on this war, or the ones past, there are many brave soldiers that are fighting and have fought so that we don't have to. It takes a strong person to have that courage.
As a child I remember singing "Proud to be an American" in school. Now when I think back, the lyrics are so special. Have you ever really payed attention to them? The song was all over radio stations playing as a tribute to those lost on 9-11 and evokes many emotions. Here is the song, written by Lee Green Wood.
If tomorrow all the things were gone
Here's a little USA tidbit about another song that's so near and dear to our hearts: “The Star-Spangled Banner” did not become the National Anthem until 1931.
Independence Day passes party lines--so relax, have a cool beverage, watch some fireworks, and enjoy the red, white, and blue!
