The Boots.

{Dress/worn as skirt: Old Navy, $4}
{Ribbon Belt: Came with other dress}
{Rainboots: Kate Spade, $109}
{Watch: Gift}

So outerwear, generally meaning coats, is not included in the 30 items of the challenge. Shoes are included. But what about rainboots? I mean, their general purpose is functionality.... Anyways, you can obviously tell my opinion. Yes, I know this is definitely stretching the line- but some days you just need a pair of bright pink... high heeled... rainboots.

Ah, Sunday.

I love Sundays. I especially love Sundays on break. Ah, relaxation. Today my padre's going to grill steaks and some of my other favorite foods for Greg and I. Then possible Menchie's (best fro-yo bar ever) for desert? I'm definitely loving today. I hope everyone else has a wonderful Sunday too!

Hello, Tennessee!

I got a little too excited to be back in Tennessee yesterday when I went tights-less sushi for a double date with Greg (Double date in this instance means 2 dates in one day.) First we walked around market square in Knoxville and had lunch, and then we realized we just couldn't turn down our Wednesday/Saturday night half priced sushi deal and went to dinner too. The only thing is, I always get a shrimp tempura and a spicy oyster roll. I do want to try some new stuff, but I'm not the most adventurous person when it comes to foods. Suggestions?

Finance test is over! So enough about that....
Tomorrow I'm leaving for spring break. I'm just going home, but I'm still pretty excited because I actually have things planned (aka I finally have something to dress up for!) Tuesday night I'm getting together with a bunch of my friends from 4-H to go to the Melting Pot, which is pretty much my favorite. Other than that there are just random things here and there- and there definitely will be regular posting :)

Also something to watch for... I've been frequenting our local thrift store and have found quite a few little diamonds in the rough (That's what I call the really ugly things I buy to fix up.) And let me tell you, I have quite the line-up. I'm planning to work on 3 or 4 dresses and a skirt. Here's a little taste of the awfulness- complete with the face (and messy dorm) of course.

I have blogger's block, y'all

{Tunic: The Limited, $12}
{Blazer: Thrifted, $4}

{Boots: T.J. Maxx, $30}
{Owl Necklace: Forever 21, gift}

{Watch: Vintage Thrifted, $2}

I've been having severe blogger's block (writer's block for bloggers.) Thanks midterms... So here's all I have to say:

  • The snow that we got last night is really pretty.
  • This watch is pretty too.
  • I bought flinestones vitamins and clearance valentines candy today.
  • I do not want to take my corporate finance midterm.
Well, there you have it. That's all that's left in my head at the moment. Goodnight y'all.
(^ the y'all is in preparation for going home next week, yay!)

An Awkward and Awesome Monday

{Skirt: H&M, $17}

{Boots: TJ Maxx, $30}
{Necklace: Urban Outfitters, $10}
{Coat: American Eagle, gift}

I'm sure you probably have seen The Daybook by now, but if you haven't, Sydney does this really cute thing called "An awkward and awesome Thursday" in which she lists any number of awkward and awesome things that happened to her. I'm always tempted to join in but can never think of what to say. Of course now that I have tons of things to add- it's Tuesday (first thing on the awkward list- thinking that it actually is Tuesday...) Since I just don't think I can wait (aka remember) until Thursday, here goes:

  • Waking wayyyy late and leaving my dorm for work in the same T-shirt I slept in.
  • Setting off the car alarm in the minivan I'm driving for the time being...
  • And subsequently being unable to turn off the alarm...
  • And driving through campus, in said minivan, with said alarm...
  • And then calling my dad because it's really become too much.
  • Windblown Skirts.
  • Sliding around in the snow in my boots that were definitely not made for this weather.
  • Pretending to take pictures of... the sky... instead of myself when someone walks by.
  • Being unable to tell my Chinese professor goodbye because the only word I can think of is "Adios."
  • Having to ask for directions at work (I'm a tour guide...)

  • Putting together a decent outfit in under 5 minutes.
  • Windblown hair.
  • Getting out of class an hour and a half early.
  • The awesome dinner my school cafeteria cooked tonight... seriously.
  • Finalizing my application for study abroad *crosses fingers*
  • Knowing that this time next week I'll be on Spring Break.
  • Going to Denny's realllly late at night with my awesome friends.
  • Having a super smart room-mate who helps me with homework.
  • The outdoor Dairy Queen being open during a snow storm- and people going.
  • Finishing (and understanding!) said homework.
  • Having a boyfriend who tries really hard to be super sweet all the time.

Not awesome
Really needing to stop blogging and continue studying for my history midterm tomorrow....

It's a Blue Jeans and Studying type of day

{Top: Old Navy, $4}
{Jeans: T.J. Maxx, $20}
{Cardigan: Loft, $20}
{Boots: Belk, $35}
{Necklace: American Eagle, gift}
{Rings: Silpada, $45}

Alright, so I wear jeans alot. Considering this is the weekend before midterms though, I think I might be one of the only students not in sweats. And as much as I would have loved to dress up in something pretty today, it would have gone to waste as I bribed my super smart room-mate to teach me corporate finance. There's always tomorrow... and my chinese test...

This is what a long distance relationship does. It glues a phone to your hand. Well, at least mine does. I swear I text allllll the time. Consider this example A. But seriously, it does kind of stink. At least we have summer. I don't know how the couples without time together can do it.
