And this is why I don't exercise.

I went to the gym a few days ago (during one of those rare moods when laying on the couch and eating doesn't completely fulfill me) and I can promise you that this is an exact replica of how I looked-


While running on the treadmill, after about twenty seconds I felt sufficiently awkward, that is until I saw the man on the treadmill in front of me who was wearing shorts that should only be sold to small children, and was running like a monster was chasing him. To this day I don't know why, but after that I felt a little less awkward.

But no running-on-the-treadmill-awkwardness could compare with the time that I fell off of it while running with my eyes closed. Okay, don't look at me like that! If you had a massive headache but weren't smart enough to just get off of the treadmill, you would think of closing your eyes too! And after falling off, you may feel the need to tell the person next to you (who is staring you down like you shouldn't be aloud in public, let alone a gym) that you're okay.

Icon for Hire- Make a Move

If you're a fan of Paramore, I suggest checking out this song, it's free on iTunes right now.

I know, very short post but I thought I needed to share :)

Oh Summer, I will miss you.

Not all of these pics were taken this summer (actually, none of these pictures were taken this summer) but I was in a really sad, summer-is-over mood while I was looking through old pictures and these are the ones that feel the most summery to me :)

Going green. (TO MUCH green)

I have tons and tons of tea stored up in a cabinet that I've kinda been neglecting for a while, and since my mom wanted me to get rid of it to clear up some cabinet space, I've been drinking it a lot lately. And another reason I have been is that I read on some internet article that green tea can make your skin look really good, and since I'm a gullible idiot and I believe everything I read on the internet, I've been drinking the stuff like crazy hoping it will make my skin look better. (I think that was a record for me when it comes to run-on sentences) 

I was also thinking "Okay, if green tea is so powerful, then wouldn't it be bad to drink too much of it?" So in case of some mysterious green tea accident, I've saved you all the trouble and designed my own gravestone.

It's posts like this that make me feel like I should get a tumblr


I also probably feel like I should get a tumblr because I've been obsessively scrolling through every tumblr I find. Especially my friend rayne's- Bye Bye Butterfly. Comment with your tumblr if you have one! (yes, I'm actually asking you to shamelessly advertise yourself)  And if you have a tumblr you're welcome to blog some of my pictures if you link back :)  (if you do, use the last pic)

I have met my future husband!

I just got back from a trip to a lakeside resort. Last night, as I sat by the fire burning marshmallows to a crisp, I met my future husband. He was cute, and he kept looking at me, and he helped me not die when the stick I was using to roast marshmallows caught on fire. 

Since we both knew at that moment that we were meant to be together forever, we spent the day together. 

First, we roasted marshmallows together. 



Then, we got married on the lake together.


After that, we fell into the lake together. 


And then we rode off into the sunset on a golf cart. 


And we lived happily ever after!

Always,
Abby Noel

P.S. Except none of that happened because I didn't have the guts to talk to him.

Would you rather give up the internet for the rest of your life, or give up brushing your teeth for a year? Comment!

Maybe one day you'll see...

Not quite sure how to respond to this...

This week I'm a volunteer group leader at camp in my church, and I lucked out and got a group of kids that are pretty well behaved. But aside from being well behaved, all of my kids are a bit...off. One girl in my group is such a tomboy that she wants to be called "John" instead of her real name (which doesn't make any sense, because her real name is one of those names that could be a boy or girl) Then there are these two little girls who hardly talk to anyone but each other, and every time we go anywhere, one of them gives the other a piggy back ride. All day today these girls kept giving me rhinestones that they took from art and then they would giggle. 

That's not even the scariest one, in my group there's a soon-to-be-fourth-grader who keeps hitting on me. Yeah. He's super super nice to me, and he follows me around. Also, when we were all sitting down in the drama room talking about the bible story they are going to act out, I left to get...uh...water.  ( I really went to get a soda out of the vending machine that the kids aren't supposed to know about, so don't tell them) Anyway, when I came back,  there were no chairs left (they're those cool floor rocking chairs, so there is never enough for everyone to be in one) and I said, not even talking directly to him, "That's not cool guys. I told you Miss Abby wanted a chair." I didn't really care because I was sitting on the floor yesterday, but then this boy jumps up, and he's like "Here, Abby. Sit here, I'll let you have my chair" 

He gets more and more obsessively flirty every day. I'm afraid tomorrow's going to be like this-

Possible Always Abby Noel Store-

So I (of course) love to draw all the stick person drawings I do here, so I was wondering if maybe I could turn that into a store of some sort. I found a website that allows you to custom design a lot of different things, one of them magnets. I liked the idea of making fun little magnets with my drawing on them, and here are a few I came up with-






They would sell for $3.50. Comment if you would be interested, the store is still just a possibility, but if you like any of the ones I show here, telling me that would make the store more likely :)

Flamingoing!

Okay, I'm sure you've all heard of planking, and now a newer fad- owling. It's where people either sit in plank positions, or sit like an owl in odd places. Well I decided I need to make my own version. I call it-Flamingoing.  


Email me your pictures of either flamingoing or dinosauring or chucacabraing or whatever you come up with. After I get a few of them, I'll post it for the world to see. (You know, it would be the whole world if all my followers happened to be the only survivors of a mass extinction. In which case I really doubt taking pictures in animal poses would be a very high priority for any of you.)

Always,
Abby Noel
