Dinner & a...Relay for Life!

Saturday, April 28, 2012

Last night was my boyfriends night off from work, So we went to T.G.I Fridays for dinner. Afterword we went to a Relay for Life Event on campus to just walk around. They had a lot of tents and booths set up with different fraternities, sororities, and clubs running them to raise money for cancer. All in all we had a good night together! I wanted to get a picture of my outfit, but my boyfriend was in a hurry (I don't know why!) So all of the pictures kept coming out blurry, then I was getting frustrated and stopped smiling so nice. This is the result:
You might not be able to tell, but I am annoyed in this haha. Not so cute as the blurry ones that we took at the beginning! (& excuse the white tank top hanging out!)

My next plan was to get a picture of him and I together. I can never have enough pictures of us, and he does not like taking pictures together (lame, right?). So I finally got him to take one, but again, they pictures kept coming out blurry. So the best one out of the bunch was:
Completely adorable if it wasn't so blurry : ( I adore his dimples. AHHH!

Dinner was yummy; we both got the same thing, so I have no idea how it filled him up! I hope to get him to take more of my outfit pictures so I can share them, but I need to get my pictures to not be blurry!

** I came across a blog that you may or may not have heard about. It was featured in a Yahoo! News article, which is how I heard about it, but it would be awesome if you could go check it out. It is about a little baby girl with an incurable disease, written in her perspective. Her parents write about her own little bucket list, while also trying to spread the word about her disease. The blog is called "Averys Bucket List" and here is the link. Get the word out!

Staying Awake...

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

So in my last blog post, or last few, I have probably mentioned exams. Lots of them. I had my short break from them this past weekend, but they are coming around again. Two next week! Which doesn’t sound terrible but it feels like I never get a break! I have been trying to prepare by studying ahead of time, but I just get SO tired! But thankfully… I have my tea & coffee! I am getting a little burnt out on coffee though, so I have been turning to tea more often. One tea in particular I cannot stop drinking (hot tea of course). It is the Lipton Vanilla Caramel Truffle Black Tea. 
I love these tea bags!

At first I thought the taste was a bit too strong, but I have gotten used to it, and have figured out a yummy way to “tone” it down a bit. Coffee creamer! I like to use the International Delight Vanilla Latte Coffee Creamer Singles, and a packet of Stevia Raw Sugar. 
I like having singles because they can be stored longer than the large bottle that you store in the refrigerator.

The tea has zero calories, and packs in 20 mg of caffeine per serving (according to Lipton's website).  I know the creamer has calories but for the time being, I am not as worried about that as getting some energy that tastes good to me! I really love this combination and would recommend it to tea lovers, more specifically black tea!  My friend actually had a cup of my combo today and said "You should try to sell this to Starbucks". I don't know if they would agree, but it is pretty delicious! 

What do you like to do to get prepared for exams (or busy days)? Any favorite drinks/suggestions?


Tree's & a Bunny!?

Sunday, April 22, 2012

Last weekend I visited home, which is about two hours away from where I go to college. It was nice to see my family, and to meet a new addition to the family. What!? Finding out there was an addition only when I get home? Well, it was just a cute little bunny that my mom got for my little sister as an Easter gift. I thought at first when I heard about it, that it would be a lame pet, annoying, etc. To my surprise, I wanted to play with it, and actually felt a little sad when I left to go back to college (yeah now I sound like a little child)! Here is what it looks like, named "Moo" for it's colors/pattern resembling a cow : )

No Makeup (ughhh) and Moo!

Here is an outfit I wore the day I went back home. Excuse my terrible pose:

 The dress was purchased at a local boutique type of store. The belt kept slipping lower than I wanted, bummed me out!

& my shoes closer up:

The tips are a bit scuffed; I seem to always stumble on myself when I wear sandals!
I got these from Wal Mart last summer, and they got a lot of compliments!

& a look at the belt:
The belt was purchased from Forever 21.

I hope to show more outfits; but sometimes it is hard to get someone to photograph me! These were taken by my younger brother!
