10 things i love about 2009

well because i think that new years resolutions are too cliche (i have yet to actually accomplish one...not that that makes me biased about them or anything) i'm going to say the 10 things i loved about the past year. it's like way more positive anyway and i'm not making any promises i can't keep. please note i am doing 10 not 9...1 for good luck!!!


1. going to Paris by myself


2. starting my senior year

3. actually sticking with this blog and telling people about it



4. branching out and doing things i never would have done before



5. turning 21



6. being 21


7. barbie and lilly jubilee celebrations



8. my sister graduating and going to college



9. spontaneous gift giving



10. people actually making the trek to come visit me at school (...nick, grace and alanna...)


what do you love about 2009?

Holiday Cheer


I apologize for not wishing everyone a Merry Christmas earlier, but i have been running non-stop all week for my mom (not to point fingers or anything). you know how it goes...it can be such a whirlwind!

needless to say, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

what are your plans for ringing in the new year?

17 December 2009

DONE


the beginning of the end:


...kind of. i still have 1 final left.


i hope you enjoy these images which show my progression into the insanity of my art essay.


dreaming of paris, not art



this is when i started to lose focus (obviously)



the point where i gave up


and now i finally finished!!!
(and yes, i did feel a little bit emotional...stupid homework)

Christmas Cards (email style)

Anyone who knows me knows that I despise technology (even though I still use it I enjoy all time away from it). That being said I think these ecards are so funny that I'll break my rule and send them. Don't worry I still sent out my real life cards, I'm not tacky! These are my favs that for sure will be sent (at some point in my procrastination filled days) to people. I absolutely had to share them with my fellow snarky compatriots!

To my Daddy (yes I obviously am a daddy's girl):


To my Mom (so fitting sans the respect part) :

To my friends (all we do is gossip):

Happy shopping!!!

finals


it's finals week. probably the most miserable week of the semester. not only do i have a ton of essay's to write (a 15 pager paper and a 10 page paper...maybe not a ton but a lot of work is involved) but i have 2 exams! i have not taken an exam in over a year, the beauty of being a fine arts major. you never have to take exams, you only write papers and create art.


for my art today class we have to write a 15 page paper on an artist of our choice. obviously i pick one of the hardest art classes ever and we have to incorporate like a million different theories that i have yet to understand. due:wednesday. i just figured out which artist i wanted to do.


and that artist would be annie leibovitz. she is one of my favorite photographers. (she did the marie antoinette shoot for vogue that i'm obsessed with!!!)


but i still have yet to figure out my thesis. on a brighter note i have my sources!! i just have to figure out how to make them work!

Christmas Cheer

i love Christmas! The smells, presents, family time...and the list goes on. this year i did a little bit of shopping to get me in the mood. my fav things include these kate spade christmas cards (on the inside they say "this year let's play reindeer games") to send to family and friends! i also got a few other fun treats for myself!

Buddy The Elf: We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.
these kate spade indoor slippers are pretty sweet too!


Buddy The Elf: The best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear.
the nest holiday candle is another great way to spread the holiday cheer!


nature walks


who doesn't love going for walks with your best friend?

it is a guaranteed fun time and a good way to get in a workout.

i just happen to live near a state park that has a beautiful mansion and lots of fun places to take pictures.


cait and i had a blast wandering around and dreaming up glamorous parties we could have there...and the ones that tool place when people lived there!

that day was one of the best i had during break!

GAH


i just recently found out that laduree (still obsessed) and christian louboutin (another obsession) collaborated.
why couldn't this happen while i was in paris?? the boxes would have been fantastic! oh well...

back to the endless hw grind of memorizing lines and writing essays on japanese films.

bisou bisou

in the spirit of black friday


i know that black friday has come and gone and the shopping frenzy has died down (slightly) but i must ask (my dad once again yelled at me for my retail therapy habit) will obama's health care cover my retail therapy? if not i am going to have to find a solution immediately.

on a happier note! it finally has started to snow up here in the arctic. i'm thrilled that it started today and not yesterday because i had to make the trek back up to school and it was absolutely miserable. i accidently forgot my suitcase and when i restarted my journey a gang of about 30 bicyclers cut me off. are you kidding me?? this is why i hate bikers. they are so rude to drivers and they don't even go fast and if you try to pass them they like expand the pack so you can't. anyway, to add to my frustration not only did i hit like 3 hours of traffic to get over the throgs neck and then i hit traffic on every single highway because of accidents. and to put the icing on the cake it started to rain when i got out of my car. whatever, at least i made it safe and sound. i hope that all the people in the accidents are ok too!!

happy thanksgiving!! i hope everyone had as wonderful a day as i did. for once everyone put away all electronics (yes, even my 9 year old brother did) and we played balderdash and apples to apples. ok, we might have watched a few james bond movies and some football. but who is counting?
i haven't had that much fun with all of the cousins in a long time!!!

up next: family football game tomorrow!!

Nanook of the North Meets Southern Belle




I'm a really nice and considerate person. Obviously. So it was only natural of me to think of my sister coming up from a much more southern climate. Well, maybe I should have been a little bit selfish in this case. I thought it would be nice to have a warm house for Caroline to come home to. Sooo I put the heat on (it was like 40 degrees out). Umm big mistake considering I'm used to like 20 degrees and I sleep in a room with all the windows open. I thought I was going to die of heatstroke last night. It had to be at least 3 million degrees in my room. At least Caroline was comfortable.


Sisterly love at it's best!

HOME


i love being home. (yes, i did make it home safe even though i somehow got lost in yonkers!?) as soon as i get home all i want to do is just relax and not do anything. however, this break i want to tackle a project that i have been wanting to do forever. organize my books and get yet another (this will be my 3rd) bookcase. i currently keep all of my book in my extra ck bradly bags behind my reading chair. i love my books and it kills me to see them not stored properly!!


ok i'm off to find some new books and another bookcase!!

19 November 2009

Home


I can't wait to go home and sleep (maybe jump and read...) in my own bed. Early AM wakeup so I can drive home.


Sidenote: this is the first time I'll have someone to drive home with (9 miserable hrs)!!!

not so much a winter wonderland

i checked my mailbox for the first time in about a month (no worries i never get mail) and i happened to see my favorite catalogue ever. gorsuch. the sweaters make me long for winter nights where i can cuddle in front of a fire in my favorite dale sweater.




too bad winter is never going to come!

the secret garden


why not read the secret garden again. a couple weeks ago kevy mentioned that she was going to watch the secret garden because she was sick. these pictures just reminded me of that.



"My name is Mary Lennox. I was born in India. It was hot, and strange, and lonely in India. I didn't like it. Nobody by my servant, my ayah, looked after me. My parents didn't want me. My mother cared only to go to parties. And my father was busy with his military duties. I was never allowed to go to the parties. I watched them from my mother's bedroom window. I was angry, but I never cried. I didn't know how to cry." - first lines of the film


while you're at it maybe you should revisit a little princess. these remind me of my childhood and how my mom and dad took me to see them when i was a little girl!!!

be funky




it's sunday morning and last night was our toga party.* so it's pretty safe to say that i went out really late and you might question what am i doing up so early?? shouldn't this girl be asleep? well let me tell you about my curse. i wake up early in the morning sans hangover. you would think it's a blessing but no, it's def not. everyone sleeps until like 11 or 12 and i sit waiting for them. i hate tv and trying to do some hw never gets done. so i have to sit and wait for hours doing nothing. so i decided to show you some of my not so productive sunday morning fun. you can try it too at befunky


this one is my favorite!!



i like this one too



i do not look that great as a cartoon but whatever who cares

* sidenote: i hate toga parties, i hate wearing a sheet and i hate it when people buy fabric so they don't look bad. um hello!! you are not going to look good ever in a toga so you might as well embrace the true toga style. like me. even though i never want to wear a toga again. never.

problematic personality tests


in my intro to psychology class (yes, i am that senior who takes it last minute) we were required to take a personality test. i mean who doesn't love personality tests?? they always are happy and positive in all the magazines and girly websites. well, i think my teacher thought it would be funny to mess with our class or something. i took the test and it said that i was "rude, disorganized, inconsiderate, selfish and close minded" the only thing it had right was that i am conservative. i made sure the teacher was aware that he gave us a faulty personality test, no worries!!

daily candy


not only am i addicted to candy, but i also am addicted to daily candy. they always know the best things that are going on in the city and they have the most adorable illustrations.



if you haven't checked it out you def should!!! they have a lot of different guides for different cities on current things in fashion and food!



they also have a pretty sweet book called "the daily lexicon:words that don't exist but should" perfect for this upcoming holiday season for any of your best friends!!! if you are still concerned that your vocabulary is still not fashionable enough you can always get the "fictionary:words that don't exist but should"

(i feel like i have a couple of good words that could be added or maybe i can just make my own book and put my bookmaking class lessons to work)
