hello from my bed! i am once again under the weather :(, but am enjoying my weekend in town. i’ve found it hard to blog consistently, but i still want to keep this baby going! i thought i would update you on what i’ve been up to the past few weeks:
- i’ve started my spring visits for work and have been to little rock, ar and winston-salem, nc so far. i got sick on my last trip and am trying to recover before i leave for my next trip to augusta, ga.
- had a great valentine’s day. got beautiful flowers from my boo and had a rockin’ valentine’s par-tay at my friend molly and alex’s house.
- we had interviews for incoming employees for work and took the candidates out to karaoke! below is a wonderful picture of all of the first years belting out “livin’ la vida loca”
- i took a 6-week calligraphy class at the local college and loved it! i hope to get good enough to actually do events one day.
- i wrote another article for the jackson free press. read it here!
- i was also very excited to get my picture and bio as a contributing writer:
- i registered for the gre. yikes! i gotta get studying!
- i’m thinking about what i want to do for my birthday on the 22nd. i can’t believe i’m going to be 24! and i can’t believe it’s march already. happy spring!
i think that’s about it. what have you all been up to lately?
hello hello! sorry i have been mia lately! my last day of the 30 for 30 challenge was last thursday. i was supposed to leave on a trip to little rock for work on friday, but icy and snowy weather in the south stopped me from traveling. luckily i made it there on saturday and came back on sunday. it’s been a good week so far, and is going to get even better because my boyfriend is coming to visit. yipee!
i truly can’t believe that the challenge is over. it has felt very strange having so much freedom to shop my closet. i learned a lot about my personal style and how to be more creative with my clothes. i also learned things that i will do differently the next time i remix (i.e. more diverse clothing choices, etc.). thank you so much to everyone who has followed me during the remix! i am definitely hoping to do another 30 for 30 remix challenge later in the spring or in early summer.
i really want to keep blogging, but i’m not sure what to blog about.
i really liked what i wore on monday, so i took a picture and will post that below. maybe i’ll continue posting outfits. what do you guys think? let me know!
molly, my fellow 30-for-30er finished on the same day as me. it was so fun to do the challenge with someone else! she is the best. check out her awesome blog if you haven’t already.
here are some more funny, celebratory pics:
love this pic.
we finally got it!
outfit of the day - 2.7.11
something that i wish that i’d done during 30 for 30 is write where each piece of clothing is from. i’ll start doing that from now on!
blazer: thrifted on etsy
shoes: ann taylor
thanks for reading! i would love to hear what you think i should blog about next. xoxo!
this week has been a crazy one. it started out great on sunday night with best of jackson. it was such a fun event. tons of free food and drinks and an amazing dance party! the week got a little crazy on monday morning when i cut myself pretty badly on a tuna can (cringe). i didn’t realize how squeamish i was until i was in a situation like that. luckily, my amazing roommate traci was home and came to my rescue. i’m worried that i won’t be able to survive any major medical event because i could hardly handle a deep cut on my thumb. oh well. i eventually went to the doctor and they glued my finger shut and gave me a tetanus shot (frowny face). today my finger and arm both feel much better.
tomorrow is my last day of the 30 for 30 remix. i truly can’t believe it! i have learned a lot and could not be more excited to shop my closet. kendi just started another 30 for 30 this month. i’m bummed that i didn’t wait to do it with her, but if you would like to see how it’s done like a pro, head on over to her site.
and without further ado, here are my outfits:
best of jackson!
right after the injury. yuck.
the kit traci made for me.
rachel and i looooooooooove cats. this is her toy cat tina.
this was me today. i can’t believe my last day is tomorrow!
hello! i’ve had quite a weekend, and it’s not even over yet! i can’t believe that thursday will be the end of my 30 for 30 remix! i’ve had a great time, but i’d be lying if i said i wasn’t excited to dive into my closet on friday and wear something “new.”
here’s what i’ve been doing for the past few of days…
these were taken on thursday. i thought the kitchen would be an appropriate place for a photo shoot because i was on kitchen duty last week!
the weather started looking up on friday and turned into full-fledged spring weather on saturday!
my roommate traci decided that we should enjoy the AMAZING weather on saturday by going to the reservoir and having a picnic for a few hours. here are some pics!
it was nice to wear a dress without tights! i actually got a little color (hard to tell here haha).
traci and michelle.
love this pic. soaking up the sun!
that evening, a group of us went to the crawdad hole for dinner. i had to eat something before because i don’t eat shellfish, but i still was able to eat some delicious corn on the cob and boiled peanuts! here are a few pictures from dinner:
claire, michelle and molly!
traci and me playing with my fun, new app that i downloaded at dinner. i’m going to have wayyy too much fun with it.
tonight and i am headed to Best of Jackson put on by the jackson free press. as some of you know, i freelance for the jfp and am excited to get to attend their biggest event of the year. can’t wait to eat great food and drink from the winners of this years awards. can’t think of a better way to end the weekend. hope yours has been great!
