Never Have I Ever - Extended Version

I was trying to think of a fun tag to do on here and I tweeted it and lovesparksxo.blogspot.com or
on twitter prettyinpink006 tagged me to do her Never Have I Ever TAG - Beauty Edition. I posted a video yesterday on my youtube channel about it but this way I can do an extended edition and I can do some additional things that aren't only beauty. :)

1) Never have I ever bought an OPI nail polish
- I'm not sure why but I think it's because I've just never had the opportunity to buy them

2) Never have I ever gotten a perm
Um....I have enough frizz but thanks anyways

3) Never have I ever bought a clothing item that cost more than $200 (or so) dollars.
Yes...that includes my wedding dress. It retailed for over $1,200 but we got the last one in DB and it was my size

4) Never have I ever had anything waxed
Not my face or body. I'm not against it at all but I've just never really done it

5) Never have I ever worn a bright lipstick excluding my cheerleading years
I am still traumatized by the bright red lipstick in elementary school...ahh the horror!!!

6) Never have I ever worn my hair down an entire day.
As soon as I don't have to be pretty anymore or I get home my hair goes up. I do not understand how people wear their hair down all the time...or without putting it behind their ears...ahhh it's just bad

7) Never have I ever been able to stick to a skin care regimen
I change mine all the time and I'm horrible at staying on schedule

8) Never have I ever worn braids in public after 4th grade
It's just not a good look on me...at all

9) Never have I ever worn black nail polish.
Not a fan at all

10) Never have I ever worn volumized hair.
I don't like a lot of volume in my hair. It looks horrible!!!

11) Never have I ever worn a french braid.
My mom couldn't french braid and by the time my friends were old enough to do it I looked silly with one.

Top 15 Childhood Memories Good and Bad

My sister suggested I do my top 15 childhood memories as a type of TAG :) These are in no particular order. Just a small glimpe into my life as a kid.

  1. Throwing up in Disney World in front of the Tower of Terror. Did I ride it? Um no. My sister just scared me so much about the actual ride plus shear exhaustion of being young and dragged all over disneyworld. It was just not a good day for Callie at all (I also threw up at a Braves game...all down my dads back as he carried me out of the stands)
  2. Trips at the beach to what we like to call the "Pantry" with my Papaw (grandfather) We would ride down together on his bicycle with me sitting in his lap.  Every time we went inside he'd joke that I had to pay for my own candy or I didn't get any. Every time he bought me more than I ever needed and told me not to tell Mom and Dad :)
  3. Along the same lines - Trips to McDonald's with my Papaw. Growing up, there was only one thing I ate at McDonalds that would be a "Kids-meal-cheeseburger-with-a-dr-pepper" <-- I could say this in about 2 seconds. Even if we had gone 7 kajillion times EVERY time we pulled up to order he would be like "what is it that you want again?" I'll never know if he as just joking but it cracked me up every time
  4. Watching Nascar with my dad on sunday mornings. I remember getting up and laying on the couch with him watching the races. Great sundays :)
  5. Anytime my parents went out and left my sister as my babysitter. The nights always went like this Sister - leave me alone and go do something else.  Me - fine see if I care. Then I would put on an old cheerleading uniform and eat chips and salsa until my stomach hurt so bad. I swear this was the same thing every single time
  6. Going to the beach with my mom. Growing up my mom was a stay at home mom so in the summer she would take me to the beach with her when she went. We would spend 2-3 weeks at my grandparents beach house. It was some of my favorite times :)
  7. Thinking that I could honestly marry my dog. We had a Lhasa Apso from when I was 5 until I was 20. We cut his hair short so he had this adorable scruffy look which suited him well because his name was Snuffie. He was as much a family member as anyone else and I couldn't understand as a kid why I couldn't marry him. He was the perfect man :)
  8. Playing kick the can with my sister and all the neighborhood kids. It's a game where you hide and the "it' person tries to find you. The only way to prevent being tagged was to run out to where the "it" person couldn't see you and kick a 2 liter bottle stuffed with sticks and rocks. Then you were safe and couldn't be tagged. We would play until our parents deemed it too late and pulled us in. 
  9. Staying up until 5 am with my best friend and laying in the road in our neighborhood during the hot summer nights. Then running like little girls when a strange creepy truck drove up the road. Then feeling like morons when we realized it was the newspaper man and not the creepy rapist that we thought 
  10. My awesome/fantastic/massive sleepovers. Do I have a lot of friends now? Nope. Did I have a lot of friends in elementary school? You bet your ass I did. I would have sleepovers with 10-15 girls and we'd stay up in our basement dancing, playing, eating candy, and causing all sorts of mayhem. It was so much fun and I was always the last person awake. No surprise for most of you though.
  11. My infamous stand out of the crowd moment. In kindergarten I decided that taking swish (literally swishing a fluoride mixture in your mouth for a minute in school) was disgusting and I wouldn't do it. My teacher then put me in the back room to prevent the rest of the class from rebelling. I remember her trying to make me open my mouth to take the swish to which I did the ever obnoxious purse lips together and smile while shaking my head. Later that afternoon my mom picked me up to go to the dentist where I also refused to bite onto the mouth tray with fluoride foam on it. Needless to say when my already irate mother got home to listen to the message from my kindergarten teacher about my day at school.....it was not a fun time for me. However I never had to do swish again :) We call this my Norma Rae moment
  12. Waking up in my parents bed between them with no knowledge of walking in there. I had a horrible time as a kid sleeping in my room so i'd go to my sisters first only to be kicked out of her bed (literally) then i'd go to my parents and be promptly sent back to my room. Somewhere in there I developed an ability to sleep walk into there room without waking them at all or me. It was pretty awesome.
  13. Escaping my parents baby safe room. One day my parents had to take my sister to school (about 1 mile away (but didn't want to take me with them) Since I was a baby they tied my room door shut (it opened into the room so they tied it to the door across the hallway). Somehow when they got home I was out of the room. They still to this day have no idea how I did it. Ninja Callie
  14. My grandparents beach house had a downstairs outside shower. As a kid I hated it and never wanted to use it. I remember running up the back steps and knocking on the back door. I was then met by my Nanny (grandmother) who picked me up and put me into the bathtub. She always says she will never forget seeing me as a kid at the backdoor asking to be put into the bath.
  15. The HOURS I spent in the tub as a kid. I loved taking baths. I don't mean like "oh i kinda liked them" I mean that I could spend literally hours in a tub until the water went cold and I had to drain and refill the tub. I also used to take the small bathroom dixie cups, tear them into to shapes and glue them onto the doors of the shower. By glue I mean I used bar soap and stuck them onto the door. I was quite proud of this and always made my parents look at my creation. I'm sure that is how Picasso started :)


I thoroughly enjoyed my spring break meaning I also didn't film one single thing. I'm a failure haha. I honestly just wasn't in the mood to film and I refuse to film just to have enough videos. I hate when you can tell someone isn't in the mood to film. I have a checkoff today and then my week consists of studying and laundry (like 6 loads haha).  I'm hoping to get back into the groove and film some stuff. I have two great looks that I love and I'm excited to film those. One consists of using some drugstore stuff I kinda forgot I even had. I also want to film my summer foundation routine which I am loving a lot. I am trying to get back into the picture taking but I will lose my camera for a week while my parents are in Cancun so that kinda sucks. I also want to film the Never Have I Ever beauty edition TAG that Tracy and Stef did in their last video (eleventhgorgeous). I have some pretty good ones that I can use.

I cannot believe how quickly summer is coming up. I have classes all summer but we will be doing obstetrics and labor and deliver. If you don't already know that is what I want to specialize in. I love everything that relates to women's health and pregnancy. Hopefully i'll feel the same way at the end of the summer. Nursing school is going so fast yet also going so slow. It's very weird. I hope everyone is having a fantastic week and look out for some new videos from me :)

P.S. If you are an avid runner - my sister, dad, and husband are running in the Marine Corp Marathon on 10/31 in D.C. so my sister started a blog about her running, marathon training and general exercise stuff. Check it out if you are interested and follow it if you want to see the updates :) http://runninsouthern.blogspot.com/ (she also has a masters in english so don't compare her grammar and whatnot with mine lol) She also recently lost 60 lbs so be sure to congratulate her on that :)

Spring Break

Ahh we have had a great spring break so far! Clay and the cats came down on friday and then I came on saturday after work. We went and ate BBQ and it was truly amazing. I'm not sure why but this place has the best BBQ I've ever had and trust me i've eaten a lot of BBQ. All week we have laid on the beach and eaten food all day. It has been amazing to catch up on sleep. I looked in the mirror today and was amazed at the difference in dark circles when you go from avg 2-3 hours of sleep to 9-10 hours. The only negative is that on monday night I had the worst tooth pain i've ever had in my life. On Tuesday I found a dentist on the island and paid 50 dollars for him to say "oh your wisdom tooth is causing pain on another tooth." Basically I just need to get my wisdom teeth out asap.

Beauty related - before I came down I picked up some of the Covergirl tinted moisturizer. I'm very impressed by it. I'm not a big fan of powder in the summer time because face it - no one has a perfectly matte face in the dead of summer. This is an excellent moisturizer and provides a nice light coverage. I just use concealer in the problem areas and it looks really good. I got mine in light to medium and it matches perfectly. I've heard good stuff about Clinique's tinted moisturizer but I just don't want to pay that much for it. I've been bad with filming videos down here :(. The problem is the time where the lighting is best is also the time where we are at the beach. Our day generally consists of wake up, eat lunch or pack lunch, go to the beach, shower, go to dinner, watch tv, and then go to bed. This house has horrible lighting at night time because it's just a vacation home. I most likely won't get one up until I go home but I have a few planned that I'm super excited about. I had the chance to go to ulta today but i've decided to continue saving up for the MAC To The Beach collection. My order will be placed at midnight the day it comes out and i'm super excited for it. Hope everyone is having a fantastic week :)

I have some pictures to post but they are on the camera which is downstairs and I'm super lazy right now. They will be up soon though I promise :)

Regular Post

I just wanted to do a real quick post since I'm not able to put pictures up tonight. I took some amazing pictures at the beach today but then I had to rush to the hospital to get my clinical assignment and then we have to look up and know all our meds and look up the patients history and what not. Needless to say we get our assignments at 2pm and I'm just finishing up my paperwork right now at 12:03 AM. Ugh i'm a tired lady. I will be on the floor tomorrow from 7am-5:30pm and then we have post conference from 5:30pm-7pmish. I have also had some weird things going on with school that I can't really discuss so that ate up some of my time today with my paperwork. Either way I start spring break tomorrow night as soon as we are done. I'm so excited to have some free time which translates to - do what I want and study every second I'm not doing something fun. My beach reading will be about neuromuscular assessments and diabetes :(. We have our hardest test coming up first of May and I'm not excited about that at all. I really want to start studying for both final tests and finals waaay in advance. Just pray that tomorrow goes well and that I heal my patient and we also get out early (haha yeah right). Thanks for everything!!!

Have a great April Fool's Day
