My first official weekend at my new school was a total and complete success. Everything that could go right, did. Things definitely seem to be looking up for he better. How was your weekend? I hope it was as wonderful, if not better, than mine!

You always want to be That Kind of Woman.

Looking for a great pair of lounge pants, well here they are.

Nothing is more adorable than a baby dressed head to toe in stripes, polka dots, and animal print.

These floral tags are a great addition to any spring time gift.

Loving everything about this classy home, especially the black and white mood.

A winter wonderland wedding planned with perfection.

These pencils, envelopes, and gift wrappings are designed with a great pop of color.

How cute is this little girl dressed up with quite some maturity.

Wonderful designs, wonderful people, wonderful story.

Cute way for a sweet fondue party.

Made By Joel always has great ideas and projects, but I am loving this wire sculpture/art that he has been working on.

This post about pacifier sunglasses would of been perfect for me as a kid, since I was addicted to my pacifier.

Job Hunting

Oh good old college life. Today I went out on the dreaded, but necessary job hunt. I tried my best to steer clear of fast food joints, I am over that part of my life. I am looking for a job that I can work a few days a week for a few hours, but not too late. The typical college job, so I am in hopes that they are flexible. Since I am just not the typical college student, I also play a sport, which does take up a majority of my time. I am just wanting to find a job that will bring in some income to get me through week by week. I have had a job since I was 15, and rarely every ask my parents for money. They are helping me for the moment to get through college, but I know that it won’t last for long. Now, that is what brings me to my job hunt. I must find an ideal college job.

I made my stops at Barns and Noble, Target, Starbucks, The Card Factory, and Hobby Lobby. I am double crossing my fingers for Hobby Lobby, because I don’t know about you, but I sure do love Hobby Lobby. I can go in there looking for absolutely nothing in particular, but come out with loads of new finds. The most entertaining: TJ Maxx.

I was waiting in line when a fight busted out between an older woman and a younger mom, who had her child with her. Both women were standing behind me while I waited for the clerk hand me an application. All of a sudden the young mother began screaming at the top of her lungs, accusing the older woman of calling her child a name. The older woman, who looked taken aback and terrified, denied such accusations. Still, the mother would not let down and continue to raise her tone and grow angry. Finally the young mother excused herself, and I quote, “I gotta get out of here before I hit this old ass ugly bitch in the face.” She bolted out of the store, leaving her friend behind to clean up the mess. The friend then began yelling at the older woman. My heart went out to the older woman, but I needed to get out of there. The clerks were fleeing to break up the argument like a swat team, while I hurriedly slipped out the door.

That was the most exciting job hunt I had ever been on.

Wish me luck on getting a job down here at the new school!

Giggle Worthy Texts

Oh the wonderful drunk texting disease. We are all guilty of it, some more than others, but it happens. Hopefully it does not get as bad as the picture above, that is crawl in a hole worthy. If you ever need a day brightener I would highly recommend web browsing Texts From Last Night. It will simply put a smile on your face, and make you realize that things can always get worse. Here are some that made me roll over with laughter:

(952): I fed the cats at 7 am, made her eggs, gave her oral, and now I’m helping her clean and baking her brownies. Cosmos got nothing on me.

(319): My mom just set up beer pong in the dining room for family game night. and you ask why I’m still living at home.

(780): She passed out in the backyard, making “face down” snow angels … so they could have a smile.

(619): My professor complimented me on the well drawn penis on my face then asked if I would like a seat closer to the garbage can.

(314): I just found out my mom named me after her fake ID from college…

(724): Just know that as we speak i am injecting vodka into gushers.

(906): he passed out at 11 at a party. he deserved to be stripped down an duct taped to the floor.

Just be happy that it wasnt you.

On To The Next.

Photo Via: 1soanes

Its been a week practically since my first day here at my new university in Kentucky, and I absolutely love it. Let me break down the last seven days for you.

School started on Friday, (why it was a must to start on Friday, beats me). My first class ever at my new institution was canceled due to inclement weather, (I wrote about this about three or four posts ago). I then only had three more classes until my first full day was complete, well those three classes turned out to be two. One of my professors could not make it to class due to the weather, so my first day turned out to be wonderful.

The next day I moved in. My family drove down to help me bare the load that was ahead of my to trudge up three flights of stairs. The dorm room was greatly smaller than my previous one, and it felt like that nothing was going to fit. I ended up stacking my bed on cinder blocks, not just one, but three. My bed sat up high enough for me to fit my fridge, shelf, and other storage bins underneath it. Finally I had the space that I was needing. My roommate even loved how I had my bed that she did the same thing. Who would of ever though the usefulness of cinder blocks? Now my roommate and I pray every time we get in and out of bed that one of those cinder blocks don’t slide, God that would be the day.

Oh my roommate! For those of you that know me, one of my first words to her the first night I stayed there was, “Just so you know, I’m a creep, and I am just like the girl in the new upcoming movie Roommate. I might even already have your name as a tattoo.” Classic move by me. She is great! She plays volleyball here at the school, and helps manage the basketball team. Her boyfriend even goes to school back in my hometown, (small world right?).We get along perfectly so far. We watch the same shows, and share the same interests. We even found a great infatuation with Teen Mom and Wife Swap. I teach her to work out, since she does not exactly know what to do in the gym. She is great to be around, and she has been so great with helping me around campus and introducing me to new people. She has been the perfect roommate.

School for the most part is great, but I know that I am going to have my work cut out for me. I am taking Microeconomics, Art History, Environmental Science (with lab included), History of World Civilization, and Intro to Psychology. However, yet again today classes were canceled because of the snow. Oh, how I am loving the snow, because two of my classes got canceled due to it. I could get used to this, (even though I know Spring is right around the corner, let me live in the snowy moment).

Now for the people! Everyone at this school so far is wonderful. I love the new coach, I love the girls on the team, and I love everyone else. The people here in Kentucky are some of the sweetest people that I have ever come across. Everyone made this move prove to me that this was the right choice. They are so welcoming and I feel like I have gone here since the beginning. The girls on the team are wonderful, and I can already tell that I will fit in just fine. All of us are excited about the upcoming season, a new coach, new players, and a whole new attitude. I honestly can not wait until practice, which by the way starts tomorrow.

So as you can tell life is going great for me exceptionally well.
