Hey there, nice to meet you! I'm 26, engaged, and live in the Midwest. I love good books, bright lipstick, and spending ridiculous amounts of time on Instagram and Pinterest. Let's be friends!

Drop it like it's hot (yeah, I went there)

Hmm yeah so I worked 1-close today and I'm sooooo tired. But oddly enough when I try to sleep I can't, so that means it's bloggin time.

Kaity and Justin came to visit me while I was at work. Kaity had a really pretty dress and hairbow on, and Justin was wearing an epic fake mustache. Ben saw him and was all like 'I saw your bf wearing a fake mustache!' It was funny...I like it when I get visitors at work.

Went to Happy Chef for pancakes with Kaity and Justin, and now I'm in my room, winding down for the night.

You know it's a good day when you've got Slipknot stuck in your head

So I bet you're wondering what I did today? Or maybe not. Either way, this is how it all went down.

*Missed 9am symposium again and proceeded to have a panic attack about whether or not I'll fail 3D because of it. Then reality kicked in and I realized I was being stupid.

*Had lunch with Justin, and then we drove around looking for the social security office so he could take care of some paperwork for his new job. We finally found it and I sat in the car and read while I waited for him. On that note, Handmade Nation is a cool book if you're at all interested in the indie craft movement. Read it, or just look at the pictures :)

*Then I worked a 4-close shift at the Lob. Nothing out of the ordinary, which is alright by me, considering I close tomorrow night too.

My phone's buzzing, I better see who keeps texting me.

I kinda like applesauce in my ears

Ah, another night of lazing around the apartment :)

We had a fashion show in 3D today, with a catwalk and obnoxious was stellar! I got to show off my freakin sweet stuffed animal pulley. Once I get my grade and the picture from the show back I'll post it. (the picture, I mean..I doubt anyone but me cares what grade I get lol.)

After German I went to the health center on campus. I have this weird rash on my arms and chest and I have no clue what's causing it. They put me on some medicine (which tastes horrible IMO). They said if it doesn't get better I either have to go to a dermatologist or an allergist. Fun fun....especially since I don't have health insurance at the moment...I'm turning in the paperwork to get it tomorrow.

Came home and read for awhile...then I played Hello Kitty on my DS. It's seriously the cutest game I've ever seen! She gets to travel around a city and do all kinds of fun stuff <3

What do you mean, it's a nice day?!

Some updates because I feel like I haven't been on here in FOR-EV-ER:

*Justin got the job at the Isle Casino! He starts in a little over a week.

*April is back from Florida...technically Stacie is too, but she's not in the apartment right now. They went to Sea World and Disney World...I'm jealous lol.

*Justin and I went to visit my mom on Thursday...we had awesome homemade pizza. I love my mommy's cooking :)

*I worked 10-5 today, and when I got off work the sun was still's spring you guys!

*My dad and brother are coming to visit tomorrow. I think we're going out for lunch, but I haven't decided where yet.

Ok gotta get back to watching Always Sunny...I can't miss the part about the 'Spin Doctors remix!'

Maybe it's time to take down the snowflakes in the window

I would have written last night, but I ended up getting a stomachache and didn't feel like doing anything except sleeping. I'm better today though!

So I'm just sitting on the couch, watching some reruns of Roseanne. Justin is getting ready for his job interview at the Isle Casino. I hope he gets the job!

Big plans for the rest of the day include:
*watching Jersey Shore reruns (laugh all you want, but it's so trashy it's fun!)
*start reading LA Candy
*clean out my car (it won't happen, but it makes me feel like it could if I write it on here)
*finish new issue of Nylon
*wish that I were somewhere warm and sunny

Anyone else on spring break this week? What are you doing for fun?

Spring Break!

I am officially on spring break now, and I already love it. Over a week to sit around and not do anything productive. Sounds like a winning idea to me, considering how much school work I've been doing lately!

So uh, I worked 1-close today and now I'm on here. I know you wish your day was that exciting. Tomorrow I might go shopping for some new spring clothes, depending on what level of laziness I reach.

I'm getting sleepy and it's only midnight. How pathetic. Ah well :)

One banana, two banana, three banana, four!

Another fine day of history, swing dance and German. Ho hum....we did finish the movie we've been watching in German though. It was called What to Do in Case of Fire and it was really interesting. Worth a watch if you understand some German, and even if you don't, it has English subtitles :P

After class I went to lunch at HuHot with Justin and his friends who were in town. They were pretty cool and we all ate way too much food.

Then I came home and was a bookworm...had to get my cheesy book fix in for the day...Sweet Valley University in case you wondered....and yes, it's as awful as you think it would be (in a great way!)

Time to zone out and watch some Robot Chicken...I don't have class until noon tomorrow and I'm looking forward to staying up late tonight and sleeping in!

Scranton WHAT, electric city!

Justin and I have been watching a lot of The Office lately and I'm hooked! I never really gave the show a chance when it first came out...I was convinced it would only be funny to people who worked in dumb reasoning I know. Anywho, I was wrong and it is one of my favorite shows now...right up there with Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

I...hmm, what did I do today? Well, I got up far too early for art history, then came back and slept for 3 hours or so...I was so tired, I'm not sure why. Then I went to German and got lunch. Worked 4-close and came home to watch tv and work on my 3D project. It involves making stuffed animals into something that can be worn, but it can't be clothing. So I'm making a pulley-like contraption that will cause my arms to move up and down. It's not due till after spring break, but I'll try to remember to post a pic so everyone can see how ridiculous it ends up looking.

Bedtime now, good night!

Finally, the pictures I promised!

These are from the two photoshoots that my friend Kaity and I did last week!

The street sign says Drury Lane, hence the caption. I had the idea for this picture in my head for the longest time and finally got to do it!

We wanted to find a phone booth, but decided a bus stop would make a good alternative


Some guy drove by and honked as this one was being taken...nice

Our version of 'American Gothic', since we're both art buffs


That's Justin below me...luckily I didn't fall on his head

What I would probably look like if I were a superhero

Who's that above my stairway?!


Ooh scary!



Also, thanks to missjessicaannx3 for my new layout!

Erm herm, yep!

Another fine day of work...1 to close if you really want to know, but it went by surprisingly fast, which was cool by me.

I am now going forth with my plans of doing nothing for the remainder of the weekend, and damn, am I excited!

Also, it is raining outside, which means I'm going to sleep like a baby tonight :)

Partner in Crime

Gonna go put my pjs on and read my new Nylon for a bit, then it's sleepy time!

Beware the granny

So this afternoon Justin and I were sitting on the couch (I was reading magazines, he was watching tv) and we heard someone knocking on the door across the hall. Whatever, nothing unusual. But then they knocked again....and again. This went on for like 5 minutes, so I got up and looked out the peephole.

The person knocking was this creepy looking old lady. She eventually went away...or so we thought. We left to go to Justin's and pick up some dinner at Panera. We were gone for almost an hour. When we came back to my apartment, the old lady was sitting in a car right in front of the building, reading a book. We came in and not 10 minutes later, the knocking began again on the door across the hall. Justin and I looked at eachother like 'WTF?' and sure enough, it was the old lady again! She knocked for another 5 minutes, then went out to her car again. She sat in her car for awhile, then finally left.

When April got home from work, I told her about the old lady and the knocking. Apparently the same lady was at the apartment of her friend, supposedly doing a survey and now she keeps bothering April's friend....she knocks on the door and then hides so the people in the apartment can't see her through the peephole.

Needless to say, this is creepy...and so I've taken to calling the old lady the 'granny stalker'.

Should stop watching SyFy and go to bed

Had school today and work...the usual stuff. Then after work went to Village Inn with Liz and Elizabeth. It was so fun sitting around talking about random things and just hanging out. Oh yeah, and the food was good too :)

I need to go to bed, not much else to write about and I have 8am class again tomorrow. Night night!

Fun times with Kaity and Justin!

So the visit to Justin's parents went well. The dog (Lance) and the kitten (Sophie) are both adorable. Lance was SO hyper, he made me laugh with all of his running around. Sophie was so sweet, she nuzzled up against me and let me rub her ears...she wouldn't sit still for We had a nice visit with his parents. His mom made a really awesome dinner and homemade brownies for dessert...yum yum.

Yesterday Kaity came to town and we went on a photoshoot with Justin as our photographer. I wore a sweet black tutu with a zebra print top and really tall heels. Kaity wore a purple top with jeans and her tall black boots. If I can figure out how to post pics on here, I will later. We went to a bus stop, an abandoned storefront and out on a lake that was frozen over. It was so fun!

Then today we had another photoshoot. This time we went to a bridge, down the main shopping district, and in a parking ramp. We got some pretty awesome pictures, the only downfall was that it was FREEZING, even colder than yesterday.

After we got back to my place April and her boyfriend Christian came home, along with his new puppy Tank. He's such an adorable puppy, all pudgy and cute...but he needs to be potty trained. It makes me really want a pet...either a dog or a cat (even though I can't ever get a cat because I'm allergic). If only the landlord would allow it, I would so have a little pug dog now. Someday.... :)
