this is my real life.

So I’ve officially started real life I guess!

We got an apartment (!) to live in a few weeks before graduation. Nobody lived here but we slowly moved in all of our stuff. Mostly Justin wanted to get all of this out of his closet:


Then we GRADUATED and stuff! Oh man!




On the 11th (the day after graduation!), I drove with some friends to Leavenworth, KS for a wedding of Justin’s old roommate! I wish I had been more actively blogging then (like I would have had time, laughable), because everything we found there would have been a story of its own!

That night of the 11th was the first night I stayed in the apartment as my very own! Justin has been coming over during the daytime and studying and unpacking/cleaning/sorting. The evenings he has spent at his job training! Monday and Tuesday we went out to eat afterwards and watched basketball. We are gonna go broke doing that, so he ate before he left today.

Since being a REAL adult:

1. The Cox man came and installed our internet and cable.

1a. I discovered we ordered the wrong cable package. Apparently FSN Oklahoma is a super fancy channel… not amused.

2. I met with the caterer, had a phone call with the videographers, ordered the cake, finished our guestbook!

3. I hit someone with my car. OH YEAH. Yesterday was a goodie.

4. I’ve ironed a bedskirt.


That’s where we’re at. Also, my face has had weird flare ups so it’s really unpredictable. So that sucks. La la la.

Here we go, life.



wrapping it up

I had a wonderful week last week. For one, my face went back to normal for two days (it’s kind of weird now, but I’m hanging in!). My two bridesmaids Kathleen and Rachel drove up on Thursday from Texas, and Catherine came in on Friday! My lovely girls threw me a shower at Cayli’s house on Sunday, after we WON Kappa Sigma dance (and the entire philanthropy week!). I’m going to have to make a separate post about the shower soon because everything was so perfect. They’re the best 🙂

You can see the video here!

Only one girl fell off the stage, so it’s all good…haha but really, she’s okay.

It was a great weekend, full of no homework.




Sunday night I remembered to check for a presentation in Global Energy Decisions. Yep. There was one due in 15 minutes. Whoops. You live and you learn. I presented it today.

Justin is the best, of course, and we went to dinner yesterday because I was hungry, and he also surprised me with an adorable card, flowers and chocolate! Plus a walk around the park, where all the tulips are in bloom.


I have a test tomorrow, that I am currently (obviously) procrastinating studying for.


That phrase always makes me think of this song:



This weekend though…

I’ve sure done a whole lot of nothing.

Saturday we had a function with Kappa Alpha, which was fun. Then we hung out with some friends afterwards. It started to freezing rain and there was a nice layer of ice on the roads by about 12:30am. I made the executive decision to not go to church on Sunday.

Sunday, I woke up about 11:15. Snow and cold and everything was coming down, and Justin asked me if I wanted to come over for lunch. I didn’t leave until night time. During that time, we watched TV (Cinderella was on. 😉 ) and tried to make a cake. That was a really good test for us. Basically, I can’t read. The cake turned out alright, we made cream cheese icing and Justin added a sleeve of Thin Mints. It was a good choice. It was kind of like a Mint Oreo Cheesecake…not mad. Then Matthew and Seth came over, and we watched Thunder (they won, finally) and played some cards. While we were playing cards, we got the news that school was not only delayed, but had officially been cancelled for Monday.

And Matthew drove me home, isn’t that so nice?

Aaaaaand then there’s today. My body woke up the first time around 8:30. And I had a horrible dream. And then again about 11:15. I got an email that said I didn’t have to come give a tour, which is good, since I slept through my tour time. It’s now 3:40, I’m still in my pajamas, and I’ve eaten Ramen noodles so far. I read two chapters in the book I’m reading for fun (hilarious), am going to work on my project for class (ugh), catch up on my Bible Plan, and then read GoT if there is still time. I am not too torn up about not being able to go outside today…not gonna lie.

Netflix and my other super-legal streaming website are not working…too many people trying to watch shows. 😦 So reading is obviously the next best thing.

4 days of class and then one more week until freaking spring break. BRING IT ON.

What do you do during snow days?
