Ive been a bag blogger. I'll admit it. Since my last post MONTHS ago I have started college, adjusted as best as I could, and atempted to keep a job going. I love college, but the work was nothing like I was expecting. That was the biggest adjustment. In high school I got A's barely studying, and now I have to deal with the mindset that C is average when I study my butt off. But I have made some great new friends even though I live at home. The first week I rushed for a sorority, but decided not to join one my freshman year so I wouldn't be so overwhelmed. But I am so glad I went through rush (even thought it was the most tiring week of my life) because that is where I met most of the girls I hang out with now. So its all good!! :)

Football has been a pretty big part of my college life too. The first 6 games of the season were GREAT!!! Our Gamecocks were ranked number #6 in the nation! But of course if any of yall keep up with SEC football, it all went downhill from there. Even our last game looked like we were going to pull out a win against Clemson, but of course in the last seconds they won. O well, like every devoted Gamecock says, there's always next year!!

This week I'm working for a family friend at our local Holiday Market. Tonight was the opening night and I'm lovin it!! The whole feel of the room is that Christmas is just around the corner (ahh!!) and not to mention all the vendors are FABULOUS!!! I'll be doing my shopping there Saturday morning and looking forward to shopping til I drop for the first time in the LONGEST time!!!

My other job that I've had for almost 2 years is at Build-a-Bear workshop. Yes, its a cute job...for high school. If early childhood education was just college major, yea it would work out great. But sadly its not. Things got so stressful at one point that I turned in my 2 weeks notice, but my boss wanted me to stay so bad she was willing to let me work for as little as once a month. So I stayed. But I just got a call today from CVS Pharmacy and now have an interview Monday for a opening in their pharmacy. Hopefully *crosses fingers* this job will work out since pharmacy IS my major, and this would give me a legit reason to part ways from BABW.

Well I guess that its for now in a nutshell. Next week are finals so once that is overwith I'll be on here more often. I highly doubt anyone is reading this thing, but if you're out that I appreciate it!!! Everyone have a safe and happy weekend!!! :)

Summer Reading

So 3 weeks after graduation I have found myself bored outta my mind during the day. Days of our Lives can only stimulate the brain so much. So I bought a couple books and stopped by the libaray in hopes of fixing this situation.

The Prada Paradox by Julie Kenner
I've read the first 2 books in this series loved them. This 3rd installment follows the same basic plot line, where a computer game becomes real life, but the author delves more into the main character's past and background than the actual plot of trying to solve the game. By the time the game actually starts, you're halfway through the book and its almost over. Still sad to see this series end. I'm currently re-reading the 2nd one, The Manola Matrix, but I have a feeling this book was a one time read. Worth picking up at the library, not sure its worth the bookstore price.

I picked up the rest of these at the library and am anxious to read them. Later in the week my mom and I are going to Myrtle Beach so we can go shop outlets and I hope to finish at least one of these while we're there.

Where have I been???

I have no excuse for the lack of blogs this past month. Yes graduation was a couple weeks ago but still, these lazy days of summer give me perfect opportunity to blog about my days.

Speaking of graduation, it went GREAT. I expected to be more emotional than I actually was. But my party that Saturday was so fun and relaxing. Everything went well, well...except for the cake. My mom made a cake with fondant icing, and they tell you you're not supposed to freeze it. Well, she did, and the icing flavor soaked into the cake. So it was not too tasty! But it still was BEAUTIFUL!! And all the flowers and pink and green theme turned out exactly as I wanted it too! So yes here are some pictures from that.

What I wore the day of the party:

Lilly Summer 2007

Lilly's new collection seems to have a different vibe than her other more recent collections. The overall colors used are more primary and bold than the colors were used to seeing on Lilly. I do like some of the pieces, but alot of the pieces, unless someone viewed the entire collection, wouldn't know these Lilly pieces from any other brand. I dont know about yall, but besides just loving the colors, whenever I wear Lilly I feel special! I know it sounds cliche, but when I see somebody wearing Lilly, I have a certain "fashion respect" for them. I feel a few of these pieces don't do us and Lilly justice! Alas, there are always a few pieces I will splurge for...

I like this dress, although I think the blue one looks better. But you have to deal with the lack of "Lillyness"
This to me is more of what Lilly's summer collection should be. They have shorts like these as well, but in my area the trend seems to be that madras shorts are EVERYWHERE and its hard to come by a skirt. Also with the color scheme on this one it might be more versital and wearable throughout the year.
This skirt is cute as can never have enough seersucker! Although it is a lil too long for my taste, but I do like the pink & blue combo.

I love love LOVE this bag! And considering its $125, its a better buy than the Kate Spade Coal bag I've been eyeing. And the navy makes is useable into the late summer/early fall.

Grey's Spinoff? Yes or No?

I can't decide yet whether or not I'm going to like this Grey's Anatomy spin-off. Even though she wrecked havoc on my favorite couple's relationship, Addison has become one of my favorite characters on the show. I do like the fact that they decided to let Addison go someplace bright and tropical. No offense to Seattle *I hear its a great city* but the show seems to give it an overall "blahness" or lack of color to it. This new beachy location gives the show color. But I'm thinking as long as her spinoff doesn't take away too much from the present characters, I think it will be good.
Anyways, I have come to realize that I love reading blogs, but I guess since the whole process is still new to me I dont have the habit of blogging myself on a regular basis. Hopefully this will be remedied after I graduate!! Gosh I cant believe in less than a month I will be finished with high school. My parents are throwing me a graduation party for the family and friends the Saturday after graduation, so were beginning to plan that. The colors for the party are going to be pink and green *of course* and I'm thinking the flowers are going to be deep pink gebera daises, but I'm not sure yet...any suggestions?? How else could I encorporate pink and green into the party?

I Love my Parents!!!

My parents surprised me yesturday after FINALLY getting my license with a brand new car!!

I had test driven the new Hyundai Tucson a couple months ago and absolutely LOVED it, but they kept telling me I had to wait until August or September for a new car. So yesturday my mom & I went tanning @ my uncle's house and we were chatting outside and all of a sudden he opens his garage and my dad drives out my car! Its royal blue just like the pic with black trim. They even put a big red bow on it like they have in thos Lexus commercials! But they even put a Carolina Girls license tag on the front and a USC Gamecocks license frame on the back. AND even better, my mom gave me an Ipod adapter for it too!! It caught me as a total surprise and couldnt ask for better parents!!!

Preppy Post #1

Welcome! I have no idea if anyone will read this, but here is where I'll be recording my final days as a high school senior and other various events in my life. I'm VERY new to this blogging thing, so any help would be appreciated. I can't promise that I will post everyday, but when I do I will try to keep the posts as interesting as possible!
