So it is snowing!!!! and I am back at school in Philly! I am so overly excited to be back and i get to restart classes on tuesday. I have spent the whole day unpacking and attempting to get my miniature room reorganized. I also applied to be a camp counselor this summer at Camp Vega in Maine. I was really unsure of what exactly i wanted to do this year while not in school.. but i finally figured out that working in a fun and exciting atmosphere with little girls would be the most rewarding experience i could ask for!

Okay so goals for the semester..

1. i need as close to a 4.0 as possible in my classes. Only two more semesters to make sure i have the 3.5 i need for my history Honors Society.

2. Stay organized... last semester was a bit hectic with rushing my sorority and everything.. but i know this semester will be better!

3. My best friend says we are going on Man-Fasts for the semester so we can focus on friends and fun.. and not the drama that seems to come along with dating the frat guys we are friends with. I plan to stick with this little fast. : p

4. I HAVE to start swimming again. If i get the job at the girls summer camp i will have to teach young girls to swim... and i wouldnt expect them to trust or respect me if i looked like i have never swam in my life.
On another note.. i got back into my building to watch the Eagles vs. cardinals game. It was fun to watch it in the city and I made the BEST brownies (dark chocolate with rollos and dark chocolate chips) to bring to our little party.. lets say the guys definitly appreciated it!

it has happened. Single girl is "talking to a guy". I know. its been a while... trust me i know.

I guess i can fill in you lovely ladies with a little information. I need advice!

So i met this wonderful Sailor ( yes he is in the Navy ...) at the Navy vs. Army football game.

he was friendly and cute and a friend of a friend. so we chatted for a while. it was quite pleasent.

so then he friend requested me on facebook that night... ( i gave him brownie points for the speed of the request). and we chatted online a few times and he got my number from the mutual friend. and he texts me ... and leaves cute comments on my photos online and everything... but thats all.

he seems really interested. But i am at a loss .. i have no idea what he is looking for. he seems to have very good morals and he is so sincere. but still.. maybe i just have trust issues??? oh well we will see! I will keep you updated!

So I am being an insomniac again and browsing the internet. I have found the following lovely photos that i think sum up my IDEAL style...

I love the Navy and pink combo from Vineyard vines... it looks so effortlessly preppy.

This outfit from Jcrew would be totally perfect for a day shopping at a beach (such as Charleston, SC my fav!)

Okay so... i alrady have this outfit from Jcrew. and i wear it probably once a week. I just love the casual look of it! My roommate makes fun of me daily for it... but what does she know? I love this adorable little outfit from Lilly! again... i love the fact that it comfortable and classy!

I am growing my hair out... because of Blair. I am just inlove with her flowing locks and we have similar colored hair. . . so i am obsessing over it!

okay. i need to get some sleep now!

Here are the rules....
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open to page 56.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 2 to 5 sentences, along with these rules.
5. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual book. Pick the CLOSEST!

Please dont judge me... but i picked up this book today becuase i just realized i actually have to get an A in Russian II next semester !!!

Okay the sentances are...

"If you want to say "I will read the article" You use the ya (I) form of the verb BYT plus the imperfect infinative CHITAT : Ya budu chitat statyu."

I know ... im sorry for the obscure lesson. lol

So today i found the PERFECT drink when you are on the run and dont have time to eat!!! It seriously filled me up enough to run around with a 5 and a 7 year old all night at swim practice!! ( i seriously love babysitting them... but it wears me out!)

The drink is the Vivanno Chocolate Banana with a shot of expresso at starbucks! I was very wary to try this drink... it sounded gross to me... but i loved it!!!!!!

So i went to see Bride Wars today with my mama and sister!!!

It was soooooooo cute! and while hathaway and hudson do not look like glowing brides in this picture... trust me .. they both are absolutely lovely!

the only bad part about seeing the movie was that there was a group of middle school kids sitting behind us : ( they made the ugliest comments when Kate tried on the beautiful vera wang wedding dress....
Oh well i guess everyone cant have the best taste like me : p
So now i am spending yet another night in while bugging the heck out of my family because i JUST WANT TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL! I will be taking some amazing courses this semester soooo i am super excited! so now that i am sitting here watching two weeks notice ( a personal fave) i have decided to show you some of my personal favorite pictures : )

I absolutely love this picture... i grew up a Navy Brat so I cant help but imagine myself with a Navy officer one day. . .

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this bedroom. If i could pick any room in the world to just lay and read a book this would definitly be it! From the canopy bed to the hardwood floors I LOVE IT!!!!

I have oficially decided it is time to reorganize my life. Create more "me" time. What better time then the promise filled month following a new year?!?!?!?

After almost stalking all of the lovely ladies with classy, preppy blogs out there in blog land, I have finally decided to jump on the band wagon and make one of my own!! and I am soooooo excited!

So a few key points about me...

1. I am a history major in Philadelphia and on a pre law track.

2. I MAY (hopefully) be transfering schools back down south (where i grew up) in the fall. I am especially looking at Sweet Briar College.

3. I am currently single... but not really looking. I know, I know... I cant lie. I am looking. But it is better make sure I am 100% happy with myself before i try to make someone else happy. It is really only fair.

4. I love kids and want to have them ASAP (well... after college). I will hopefully be a camp counselor this summer!

5. I am a sorority girl and have made the very best friends because of it!

6. I have a chocolate lab named Jill. She is the sweetest dog you will ever meet.

and a few new years resolutions.... I really REALLY need to stick to them this year!

1. Get a job. I havent worked and been a student yet... but I think having a job will be a wonderful addition to my sched this semester.

2. Get into better shape. If losing weight goes along with this than i will be extra happy!

3. Take one day at a time! I need to make sure I dont rush through anything. These are supposed to be the best days of my life, right?

So while I am waiting out the rest of winterbreak (which seems to be ridiculously long this year) I am spending my days reorganizing, reading, and watching TV. I know... that is a nicer way to say I am being really REALLY lazy. Today especially I spent my day with a few of my favorite things....

Coffee....lots of it.

Jon and Kate plus 8 (my guilty pleasure)

The Art Thief

By Noah Charney

A Davinci Code type novel that I picked up over the break on a whim,

surprisingly it is really good!

And now I am going to spend the rest of my evening watching the NEW Bachelor!!! I am not going to lie... this one looks like he is the man of my dreams ha ha.
