Adios Amigos!

Hey, friends! Right now I am dreaming of palm trees, coconuts, and waves lapping at my toes. Why, you may ask? Well, I'm going to the beach tomorrow!!! I literally cannot wait. Five of my besties from high school and I are leaving bright and early for Myrtle Beach. I don't even care that all six of us will be in one bedroom (and all sharing one bathroom), I just want to see the clear ocean and the gorgeous sunsets! This little trip will also complete #67 on my 101 in 1001 list! And possibly #5, if I can find a good book to bring. And maybe even #41 <<< just kidding!

Olympic Distractions

Hiya! Sooooo it's kinda been a long time since I last blogged. This is most likely for one of two reasons: 1.) I have been incredibly involved with my busy life and haven't had a chance 2.) absolutely nothing exciting has happened that has been worth blogging about 3.) nothing exciting has happened but I have been pretending to be incredibly busy. Option #3 may or may not be the right reason...But now I can make a mega post sharing all the fun things that have happened over the past week! This post might be a little all over the place, though, considered the Olympic opening ceremonies have about 98.685% of my attention right now.

Snapshot: Chicago

Heyyy! I'm back from Chi-Town (unfortunately). It's good to be back home, but I seriously love Chicago. I went through a period where I believed I was destined to move to the Windy City when I graduated college. However, the boyfran quickly reminded me of the extremely cold winters Chicago experiences and I quickly rethought my plan. I just can't do the cold. I get whiny, start to complain, and basically make everyone around me miserable am better off in warmer weather. This trip brought more blazing hot temperatures (100+ degrees), though, instead of freezing ones, but was still an amazing little vacation. But since I just got home a few hours ago and am exhausted, let's zoom on through this little post! More pictures, less words.

Woppin' in the Windy City

Hello from Chicago! This blog post is sponsored by fantastic shopping, deep dish pizza, and tons of reckless taxi drivers! <<< kind of a lie, but these are all things I have experienced so far! The title of this post is also kind of a lie. I haven't (yet) wopped on the streets of Chicago, but I did listen to the song in the car about 34932 times on the drive up. Nothin' to pump you up for a great time in an incredible city like the Wop. Now that we're good and off topic, let me show you a little bit of Chi Town!

Celeb Status

Well, hey there! I can't believe it's almost Sunday already! This weekend has literally flown by. Work, friends, and the boyfran have kept me busy the past few days. But though the weekend is soon coming to an end, in a way it is just beginning for me. Why, you may ask? Because I'm leaving tomorrow to visit the big sister in Chicago! That's right, homeboys and homegirls lads and lasses, #25 on my 101 in 1001 list will soon be crossed off! But before I explode from excitement discuss the Chicago plans, let's talk about the start of the weekend, shall we?

Never a Dull Moment

Heyyyy partay people! Guess what?? It's almost the weekend! Weekends are kind of pointless during the summer, though, dontcha think? Actually, come to think of it, I typically work more on the weekends than I do during the week. So I guess my weekends are more work than play.... I feel slightly depressed now. On to happier thoughts!

101 in 1001

Wow, I am honestly surprised by myself! Posting (almost) every day for the past three days? It's a new record! Maybe this means that I have taken an ambitious attitude towards blogging. Or maybe it is just an indication of me having too much free time. Let's go with the first option.

Rockin' the Mountains

'Sup, kiddos! So I know I just posted last night, but I got distracted by Harry Potter weekend didn't get to share everything I wanted to! And, naturally, I must describe every little detail of my life...hence the reason I must post today! Let's time travel back to Friday for a few moments <<< because, really, who doesn't want to time travel back to the start of their weekend?!

Life Through the Lens

Hey, friends! I'm backkkk! I sorta kinda forgot to mention that I would be in Illinois all week, and since my grandparents still have insanely slow dial up don't have the best Internet access in the world I wasn't able to blog at the good ole farm. Unbelievable as it may seem, my week in SoIll (Southern Illinois...yes, I am totally making that happen) was filled with festivities! And what better way to explain such festivities then through great photos? Therefore, I am dubbing this a photo recap of life in the farm ghetto! (It's really not ghetto. But I thought it sounded cooler like that).
