Got to break out the wallabee's today! Yesterday was rainy and yucky and today we get the leftover overcast weather so I thought it was a perfect time to bring these babies back out! If you don't own a pair of wallabee's, they really are EXTREMELY comfortable! I know some people think they are so ugly but promise me when I tell you they are worth it (if thats your opinion, I happen to like them). Even my mom is coming around to liking them!

A couple people have commented wanting to know how I've lost weight. It's a pretty complicated plan so I want to make sure that I explain it clearly and so that it's easy to understand. I know the first time my mom mentioned it I was extremely confused! So be looking for a post about that sometime next week.

Next weekend is also Initiation for all our new girls in Kappa. Which means I get to spend next week painting a paddle for my little. If you were in a sorority, did you have to paint a paddle or do you have any cute ideas on how to paint it? I wanted to trace a Lilly pattern that is in our sorority's colors (light blue and dark blue), but I think the paddle is too small and with the wooden letters that go on it I don't think it would be shown very well. If any of yall have any pictures please send them my way! Hope every has had a good week so far!

As you can see there wasn't much to today's outfit. I spent the weekend at home with my parents and caught up on some much needed sleep. Finally made it back to my apartment, where 4 loads of laundry were awaiting me!! And they all have to get washed, folded, and put away tonight because the man were going to be switching apartments with is coming to look at the place tomorrow! So it has to be spotless!

Im so excited for this week because Thursday and Friday is USC's Fall Break! And after working Monday, Tuesday, AND Wednesday nights, it will be a welcome break. My friend Erin and I are going down to the beach Thursday and Friday just to relax and do NOTHING! Then Saturday we'll be getting up REALLY early to get back to Columbia to see the GAMECOCKS take on the Kentucky Wildcats at 12:30! Our Gamecocks have been doing really awesome this year. We've only lost 1 game so far to Georgia and that game was AWESOME! (even though we did lose) So overall they have done really well and I couldn't be more proud! Then on Sunday is my 20th BIRTHDAY!!!! I have no idea what I am getting but I do know the family is going out to Outback Steakhouse! Outback is one of my most favorite places to eat because they have my most favorite salad...their wedge salad! Its sounds pretty basic, just a wedge of lettuce drizzled with bleu cheese crumbles and dressing, buffalo sauce, purple onion, and bacon, but it is SOO good! Trust me!

I hope everyone has a great week! Anyone else have anything fun planned?

My Life in a Nutshell

What I've been doing instead of blogging...

  • put apartment on the market only to end up trading apartments with neighbor across the hall
  • somehow passing Organic Chemistry I and II in summer school
  • FINALLY finding a diet that works for me....25 pounds skinnier!
  • finding new clothes in my closet that now fit, and realizing that some of my favorite items are too big to even take in :(
  • adjusting from living with a roommate who had her boyfriend over 24/7 to living by myself (LOVE IT!!)
  • family vacation to Chicago
  • experiencing southern sorority recruitment for the first time (INTENSE!!!)
  • getting adjusted to 5 new classes for the fall semester
  • actually doing halfway decent on my first tests! Maybe I've finally figured out how to study ;)
  • experienced some AWESOME Carolina football!!!! GO COCKS!!!!
  • major shopping trip to Myrtle Beach to get new SMALLER clothes!!
  • got my little sister for Kappa! LOVE (pictures of us and gifts to come!)
In other words, I've been a little busy! No excuse I know, but I really want to get this blog started up if only to have a record of these crazy college days!! If I have any readers left, thanks for being the most patient people EVER!
