awkward & awesome thursday

2011 12 08

-The fact that the people I work with treat the office Christmas Party like it's prom. Our entire building consists of about 20 people.
-Walmart between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Enough said.
-The number of times I think I respond to people's text message only to discover hours later (or sometimes the next day) that I never did. What a bad friend.
-The fact that my purse always seems to knock things onto the ground.
-The people working at the snack bar who have all stopped telling me what my total is. I usually only buy one thing, but I still like that reassuring “That’ll be $1.29 ma’am.”
-My stomach, growling, in class.

-The lovely ladies in my family painted my studio room while I was in class and Ryan was working. I'm SO thankful. Can't wait to get my creative on.
-The fact that I finally ordered our wedding photos. Cross that off my 12 by 2012. But I'll just be honest and say I'll probably procrastinate sharing them with you until January.
-Little Ceasar's cheesebread. We're convinced it just might be the best in town.
-I have my first final tomorrow. Well, that part is not awesome, but the fact that it means the semester is almost over, is.
-The fact that I don’t have to work for an entire week, thanks to finals.
-The project that Katie and I are prepping for our blogs.
-I'll spare you the lengthy version of my story. I was working on a project with a group, had written 5 pages on my own, and then we almost changed the topic because we were afraid the prof wouldn't like it. In the end we decided to stick with it. We presented it last Thursday. We got the results this week and we came in second place in the entire class out of 8 presentations. Risky girls always win. :)

Happy Thursday lovelies.

  7. Haha, yes, they are all tanning and buying expensive dresses and getting their hair done. It's almost scary how obsessed they are with it. Can't wait to start posting our project, but it will be after Christmas, so there's still some time.

  8. Me too! I always look forward to hearing people's a&a's!

  9. Thanks so much! We've eaten there so many times but never tried the cheesebread until about a week ago. Now we crave it! :)
