My Version of a Thursday Night.

Taking a Study Break for My Sanity.
I can only handle looking at mechanisms of reactions for so long before I'm ready to pull my hair out.

I know this image makes you jealous of my fun Thursday night! ;)

I usually study in my room, or with my sweet O-Chem study buddies in one of our apartments.. but tonight I decided to hit up the library study rooms for some hardcore study time.

I'm not the best at studying, because I have trouble focusing.. I get easily distracted, hence the reason I'm writing a blog post right now. HOWEVER, I am a firm believer in taking periodic breaks because otherwise you get burnt out and "over study". This year I've studied more than I ever have since I've been taking O-Chem.. and I really love the class, but it really makes my brain a pile of mush by the time I finish my test!

What are y'alls study tips?
I would love to hear some.. because this test tomorrow is going to kick my tail!

I'm linking up with Jamie today for WILW!

 and today I'm loving....

1. That I finally met some Blogging Friends!
Sunday Ally and I were finally able to meet Jamie & Jessica
It was so exciting to finally meet someone from the wonderful world of blogging!

 and of course my camera decided to act up and take blurry pictures.. (I seriously look like a white blob!) so here's the one Jamie got:

2. My sister is hosting her first Giveaway!

 It's some great little goodies she's giving away for reaching 50 followers! :)

3. Pillsbury Sweet Moments
These are AMAZING. And only 60 calories per brownie bite! My grandparents introduced me to them,
I swear they taste similar to cake balls.. and they're ready to eat right out of the package. My new favorite thing. ;)

I'll be MIA this week.

Sadly, I won't have much time to blog this week.
Because, this will be my view until Friday:

We have a massive Organic Chem II Exam Friday.
And I have a TON to study.
So send good vibes my way, because I'll definitely be needing them!
I hope to catch up on y'alls blogs as soon as the studying madness is over!

Embarrassing Moments.

I know it happens to everyone..
Friday night my sister, mama, and I went to DQ for a blizzard after some shopping and as we were getting out of our car and walking towards DQ I recognized a car in the drive-thru. 
 It was a red Hummer.. and only one girl I went to HS with drives a red hummer in our town. 
So naturally.. I waved like crazy with a huge smile on my face trying to say hey!!!


 It was 2 boys who gave me this look like, "We doooon't Knoooow Yoouuuuu" along with a half-hearted wave. Cue the beet red face. Awkward turn of the head. And immediate power walk to get into DQ as quickly as possible. Embarrassed

And I don't know if you are an Ellen fan or not.. but either way you need to see [preferably own] her Here & Now stand-up DVD. It's absolutely hilarious, and one of the things on there is this exact moment. 
So without further adieu.. here's the clip and the exact way I felt.

Please tell me this has happened to you before!

Do You Ever...

Try on Crazy high heeled shoes just for the fun of it?
Last night we went to Target to peruse the shoes and clothes, because we all know Target is the bomb [dot] com When it comes to cute clothes!

Mama is going to Texas for a few days and wanted some cute new outfits to take.. so while she tried on shoes I happened upon these babies: 


Yeah.. ridiculous, but totally fabulous
I really wish I had an excuse to own a pair of shoes like these, but I feel like if I wore them anywhere people would give me looks like, "what are you thinking?!"

But of course I had to try them on and see how they fit! ;)
They were definitely hard to walk in.. I kind of felt like Lady Gaga, only she wears like 15 inch heels.

I don't know if it's just me, but I love trying on hot, spiky heels. Just because I would never own them.. it's fun to see how they look on me!

So after our 2 hour trip to Target we returned home to this snuggle bunny:

She cuddled with me ALLL night long! 
Definitely a perk of coming home on the weekend!

Spring Break!!

Ohhh Spring Break,
you're already almost over and it's killing me.

I swear, this week went by SO incredibly fast. I think they should make Spring Break last 2 weeks, because I seriously don't feel like I've had a break. 

For Spring Break Me, Ally, & Laurie went down to St. Simons Island for a few days. We had so much fun, and ate our way through the week. No joke. It's embarrassing how much food we can put away, but hey! It's vacation!

Us at Christ's Church on SSI:

We soaked up the rays on the beach for several days!

And enjoyed nights in the village, where we loaded up on good eats and snapped cheesy pictures with the help of Laurie's tripod. We looked like complete dorks posing around the island with the tripod, but we got some cute pictures!

And what trip to SSI is complete without a stop at Barbara Jeans for the famous "Chocolate Stuff?"

me & Laurie at Barbara Jeans
That's our SB in a nut shell!! 
Now time to soak up the last few days at the lake, thank goodness the weather is supposed to be so wonderful all weekend!
