Weekly Recap

Hey yall! Hope you have had a good week. We actually got snow here in SC, well more like a dusting, but that didn't prevent my early morning class from getting cancelled! So with Monday off for Martin Luther King day it felt like a pretty short week. And the forecast for early next week is calling for snow again!!!

Photo courtesty of my friend B :)

I'm also 3 weeks into my Firm bootcamp and lemme tell ya its kicking my butt! It also came with a meal plan, but I realized early on that I was just to tired/impatient everynight to cook a meal at 8:30 at night that I decided to buy some lean cuisine meals and steamer veggie packs and try to eat some of the snacks that they have suggested. My favorite is a chocolate rice cake with a little bit of peanut butter on top YUM! :)

I also did a little bit of shopping!! Whats a week with a trip to the mall right? I ended up finding a super elegant black winter coat from Express. It was missing two buttons so it was DEEPLY discounted! It was originally $298 and with an extra 40% off clearance it ended up being $30!!!
So my mom and I are busy looking for some buttons that she can sew on and then I'll be set!

This week my sorority held its informal spring rush. I wasn't able to go either Tuesday or Wednesday because of my bootcamp classes, but we got 9 new girls and I can't wait to meet them :)

It doesn't look like it on here but I feel like I've been running around these past 2 weeks and I am exhausted!! I'm looking forward to tomorrow at 11am when my weekend starts! My cousin's engagement party is Saturday night and getting together with my family is always a good time!

I don't know if yall are tired of these giveaway posts but the stuff you can win is just too cute not to tell yall about! This one is from Misadventures of a Newlywed and she is giving away a set of Lilly Pulitzer's new stationary!! I actually *mistakenly* got a wholesale kit from their stationary company a couple weeks ago and all of the stuff on there is amazing!! My mom and I are thinking about selling some of it, depending on how much interest we get from our friends. So if yall are interested let me know!

Hope yall are doing well. I've seen a couple bloggers do this so I thought why not! I'm opening up the floor...yall can ask me any question that you want and I will answer them in a future post!

The Bachelor

Did anyone else watch the Bachelor last night? Jason was by far my favorite guy from last season and I was so sad when Deann didn't pick him in the end! Well at least thats what we thought! I couldn't BELIEVE that in the season preview they show Deann coming back and telling him she wants another chance! Supposedly, in November Deann told her then fiance Jesse that she "loved him but wasn't 'in love' with him"...pretty much the same thing she told Jason. I'm *hoping* she's only back for one episode because I don't wanna see Jason get his heart broken again! What were your thoughts? Would you want Jason and Deann back together?

Happy New Year!

Happy 2009! I hope everyone had a good end to 2008. Mine was slightly stressful with school, sorority, living away from home, work, etc. I am excited though to see what 2009 has to offer!! One of my resolutions this year is to update the blog more often! I thought by giving it a little makeover I would be motivated to keep her looking fresh and new! Thought I would start off with a little Favorite Things tag. I've saw this one a while back on a couple blogs and thought it would be fun. Here it goes....

I love Lilly for their bright colors, fun prints, and uniqueness. No matter what kinda of day I'm having, putting on some Lilly makes it better.

Atlanta is my absolute favorite city! Everytime I visit I like it even more and can possibly see myself living there after I graduate. Its the perfect combination because it's big city living but still in the good ole South!

I could eat cheesecake 24/7. I also love all things peanut butter, so this reese's cheesecake seemed perfect!

My #1 Addiction! seriously if I don't have my Diet Coke in the morning I am not a happy girl. And chilled in the can is always best. I will gladly take DC over any kinda of coffee any day.
I love so many different types of music I can't pick just one, so these 2 are some of my current faves. Britney's new cd is filled with awesome tracks to blast in the car with the windows down. And bless her heart I'm glad to see her finally get her act together. And Mamma Mia's soundtrack is fabulous! Who knew Meryl Streep could sing as well as she acts?!?
TV Show
Days of our Lives is my TV guilty obsession. If anyone else out there watches soap operas, you know how frustrating they can be, but no matter what you always sit down and watch them! Although I don't know how much longer that'll be the case since my absolute favorite couple is leaving!! :(
I discovered J&K+8 a lil over a year ago but quickly developed an obsession for this adorable family! Aedan is by far my favorite kid, but all of them are just too precious and adorable you can't help but love them all. And there's a rumor going around that the family may be moving to SC!

I couldn't have picked 2 more different movies, but I can't imagine never seeing either one again. Even though I love all Disney movies, Little Mermaid is by far my fave. I can't explain it, but since I was 3 years old I was obsessed with this movie. My parents bought it for me on DVD last Christmas so I could watch it at my apartment since I don't have a VCR!
The Sex and the City movie is just a perfect movie to watch with the girlfriends. It makes me realize that even though me and the girls are all different and have unique interests, we just seem to fit perfectly together. The movie I feel also gave storylines to each character that really showed their strengths and weaknesses and was true to the ladies that we fell in love with on the show.

I'm lucky enough that we have a Firm gym here in town and therefore I'm forced to go! I joined back in July and it has been the only workout program I can stick to! Next week me and my dad are starting their 12 week bootcamp program to start the new year off right!
I can do without all the glazy fruit filled pastries, but give me a bagel and some cream cheese and I'm a happy girl. USC has an einstein bagels in our student union and many mornings after 8am statistics my friend B and I would run down there and grab a bagel with a HUGE amount of cream cheese. I'm not gonna lie it sometimes was the only motivation to go to that class!
If I do drink coffee, it has to be something sugary that doesn't really taste like coffee. Starbucks' nonfat caramel macchiato does the trick, especially on those class days when I have to wait an hour for my next class since my 1st one let out 45 minutes early!
