Sunday Night Confessional

i think it would be kind of awesome to own a ditka sweatervest.
and apparently i'm not the only one since i've seen 3 ditkas on facebook already today.
i'm a little nervous about how my work/life balance is going to be over these next 2 months.
wahhh black friday and holiday season.
i've never been a big fan on toms - i think it's a great cause and i don't necessarily find the shoes ugly, but i've just never wanted to own a pair - until now.
i don't know what it is about these sweet little tie dye sneakers, but i think they're adorable.
and on the subject of shoes.... what the.......
my jorts are better than your jorts.
i was obviously the sluttiest girl at the halloween parties.

Flashback Friday

seat belt purses

i definitely had one of those in middle school. i saw a lady with a purple one on the train last week. it matched her purple head to toe ensemble perfectly.

you may remember me talking about how i want to get a tatoo - the outline of an elephant about the size of a dime on my left wrist - but i'm too much of a baby (and a planner) to go through with it.
well. i'm going to do it.

why an elephant?
1. an elephant with its trunk up is good luck.
2. my nana was the one who told me that little nugget when i was little. she loved elephants.
3. it'll be small enough to cover up with a watch/bracelets.

obviously this is a big commitment so i have to make sure it's perfect perfect perfect.
but i really think i've found the design i want. it's this guy (minus the words, of course). i love him.

i want to do it. i should just do it. who cares about the "what if you don't want it when you're 40" question? it'll be a memory. a mark of fun times of my youth. and a constant reminder of how close i was with my grandma.

soooo? what do you think? do you love him!?

there are no words.

Sunday Night Confessional

i went to an improv comedic musical last night.
the show was called "cupid has a heart on" and it was hilarious! like a million times better than i expected it to be. in a dirty way. props to boys who plan fun dates!

i want a google tv.
yes! please!
now that i have steady income again (and benefits! woop!), i can start looking at apartments!! but i think i actually might save up for a few more months and buy a condo like a real grown up.
it's a buyers market. flip that house, yo!

i just realized that i've become a "mom blogger" ....without actually being a mom. i didn't know this was possible?
case in point: this. this. this. this. this. there's probably more. ew.
holy yum.
nom nom nom.
i'm too busy updating my resume and portfolio to think of anything else fun to put on here.
sorry, b's.
oh, but if you aren't following me on twitter, i recommend you check this out.
i found it on rockstar diaries and it's so freaking cute! slash hilarious.

Book Club for One

you may remember my book club post from a while back.
well i just thought it was about time to update that little guy.

books i've read this summer/fall:
(again. i couldn't remember it from high school.)

books on my "to read" list:

note: before i fall was on the list. i read the first chapter and just couldn't deal with the teenage angst oozing from the pages. i know that's a disgusting description, but i feel like it accurately captures how awfully unenjoyable chapter one was.

have you guys read anything great lately?
i'm taking suggestions!

Snuggle Puff

my cousin recently posted some photos of his little munchkin on facebook.
i just can't get enough of those baby cheeks!!

Sunday Night Confessional

i had the best time in grand rapids this weekend! but i'm feeling pretty terrible now.
i went to michigan with taryn for grand valley state's homecoming. i didn't bring my camera, but i'll post picks from the "what the f*%& are you wearing?" party last night as soon as they go up on fb. amazingness.
do you know what happened the year you were born?
apparently, dna fingerprinting was invented in 1985. and back to the future was the top selling movie.
i'm kind of obsessed with the info you can learn from carly googles.
a random fact every day.
i'll be posting the giveaway winner tomorrow evening.
good luck!!

Flashback Friday

the dumbest "toy" ever created.
and by dumbest, of course i mean awesomest.

i loved our smu chi-o dinner party (round 2) at moss' last night.
it was a little flashback in itself, since i haven't seen some of those girls in aka years.

i'm so happy it's friday!!
i can't wait for this weekend. i'm roadtripping to michigan with taryn for three days of tailgating, partying, and being ridiculous. you're only young once, you know.
hope you all have a fab weekend, my loves!
