Quote of the day

out with the old...

car and in with the new..car! A few weeks ago i was talking with my mom saying how i sometimes wish i had a bigger, 4 door car because it is always such a hassle to have a 2  door car. People have broken my seats multiple times, and are always complaining about being in the back because it was small and squishy. While talking to my mom about it, i never expected she would say i could look for a new car, and when she did i was all smiles. The only rule was that it had to be for the same price that my old car would sell for, and it would have to be 4-wheel drive if it were an automatic. I was so excited! I started looking right away, but i didn't really expect to find the perfect car with those conditions, at least not as quickly as i did! A mere 2 weeks later we were on our way to check out the car i had found, which has also been my dream car for the past few months. I found a 2008 jeep liberty with the exact body style and color i wanted, and it fits my needs beautifully! I admit it was really hard for me to let my old car go, it was my first and will always be my favorite. It was small, fast, and manual. I loved it. But it wasn't too practical for me now living in the snow (i was terrified driving in storms with a baby sized car), and moving back and forth was always a toughie (always jam-packing my car with my life), so time to move on and i am happy with the choice!


Fashion fades, only style remains.-coco chanel
My friend recently showed me a blog called The Sartorialist. It's a fashion blog that shows pictures of random people a photographer sees all over the place, and the cool outfits they are wearing. All of the people wear what they would on a normal day and the photographer simply has them pose for a shoot. Some of the outfits are truly amazing and unique, i love it! Another fashion-y blog i have come across is called Look Book. This site is for anyone to post their outfit creations and others can comment their input on it. It also tells you where you can buy almost all of the items that the people show in their pictures, it's pretty fun and interesting to see what people are doing with fashion.

Cowboys & Indians

Last night was my friend Eric's Cowboy & Indian themed birthday party! It was pretty fun. To my surprise, everyone dressed up which was really cool, usually there are a few duds who don't join in but everyone did this time! We had pin the badge on the sheriff, which had Eric's face on it, and we surprised him with a birthday cake with his picture on it. The decorations were fun too! My friends put little toy cowboys and indians everywhere and made saloon doors for one of the hallways and other little things. We played games and danced the night away!

craft time

My latest crafty work, inspired by a similar picture i saw in a restaurant. i think the bright colors and quote are fun, especially to hang in an apartment of 6 girls! 


Tonight my mom got me my ticket to go on my EuroExtravaganza! I'm so excited! I've been planning it with my friends Shannon and Nathan, we have the countries all picked out, the dates, and now we finally have the tickets! it makes it all so much more real. It's crazy! We don't leave till July 20, but that gives shan and i the perfect amount of time to plan what we pack..we gotta make sure we have the perfect outfits! We have been talking about who will bring what ever since i asked her to come with me, we're trying to find anyway to make our bags lighter by still having anything we may need. So, this is the big EuroExtravaganza: July 20, Shan and i fly to Madrid, around the 24th, we go to Barcelona to meet up with Nathan and his other friend who will be with us. from there we go: to London, Paris, Berlin, Salzburg, somewhere in Croatia (nathan hasn't decided where yet), Venice, Florence, and ending in Rome! Ah, It will be so exciting! Anyone have any insight as to where to go, hotels/hostels, or what to pack to help packing lightly? All suggestions welcome!
