Sorry I haven't posted anything in past couple of days! It's been so hectic around here with school and trying to finish up the semester. Today is reading day though, so no classes! This means a ton of blogging and studying :)


First order of business, catching up on 365 days!

Day 24:

I got a much needed pedicure. I went to a place that I have only gotten manicures at and they did an awesome job! I was really tempted to tell her that I would pay extra for a long massage, but I didn't :) Earlier on in the day, I was thinking of colors I wanted, and I decided to go with a nice orange for the summer. I really liked it! And then work happened, I was called in to work at 2 instead of 6, so I ruined a couple of toes with my shoes (hence why I only put a picture of the color up). Oh well, they don't look too bad now!

Day 25:

We're having a sale at work so I had to work 1:30 to close on Wednesday. It was busy in spurts, but it basically took up my whole day, although I did have to come home at 9:30 and write a lab report (over Home Alone).

Day 26:

Yesterday, we went out to celebrate Sara's birthday! We went downtown to Mellow Mushroom and then came back to the apartment and baked some cookies. I guess I should say we baked, not just some, but A TON of cookies. It was fun though and we now have 5 different kinds :)

Day 27:

Last night, Sara decided that since we don't have class today, she would make Kayla and me oatmeal for breakfast (she's on a huge oatmeal kick). When I woke up, I walked over to her side of the apartment and demanded my oatmeal and she obliged and got to work in the kitchen. I don't really know what was in it, but I took a nice picture of it :)


Now on to some blurbs:

*We ordered Mary Poppins tickets today!! I'M SO EXCITED TO GO! Kayla had the brilliant idea to go for Mother's Day and since I have to work, we have to go in the middle of the week, but it's still going to be a ton of fun to see it with everyone's moms :)

*3 MORE FINALS! I'm so ready for next Thursday, I will be done with this semester! That means, no more core, just Public Relations, Child and Family Development, and Psychology classes for the next two years. I cannot express how excited that makes me!

*We watched Anchorman during the baking marathon last night. I had only seen the movie once, I think, and watching it again last night made me want to watch it again soon! It's so funny and it has all of the best people in it (including one of my favorites, Vince Vaughn). Maybe I'll watch it when I'm studying this weekend...

*In case you haven't heard, The Office is hilarious. I have to say, it's a nice change from Friends in the morning, although I am kind of missing all of the Friends people. I think I now have to acknowledge Michael Scott as my new hero!

I think that's about all! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend :)
