Rain, Rain, Go Away

It has rained for a week straigh here in good ol' KY. I am not sure how much more I can take. My feet are wet, my pant legs are soaked, and my hair is frizzy. Will we ever see the sun again? If not I am investing in a new pair of rain boots! That will bring some joy to my life. I'd LOVE a new pair of Hunter rain boots, but at $115 a pair, I think I'll keep searching. I did come across these really cute pair of Chinese Laundry boots that look identical to the Hunter ones, but at half the price.

The Hunt for Jeans

Well as I was walking around NYC last weekend, my jeans that fit oh so snug before I left my hotel room are now a whole size too big in the waist but yet still skin tight on my thighs. I decided I am trying on new jeans and finding a pair that fit better than the 50 pairs I have in my closet that I HATE! I do have a pair of Gap Jeans that I somewhat like, but go figure, they discontinued those. At 28 years-old, I don't want my butt crack hanging out the back of my jeans nor do I want the waist up to my belly button. Neither has ever been a good luck but at 18 I was less conscious of my crack or undies hanging out the rear. Thank goodness I have learned something over the past ten years.

I headed back to my Alma-matter, American Eagle to try on jeans. I used to LOVE their jeans and owned nothing else. Blake Lively (from Gossip Girl, watch it if you don't already) was spotted in the all new, brought back, Artist Jean and it looked great on her. Sure I'll give it a try, why not. I can finally own a pair of jeans that a celebrity owns. I headed into AE, grabbed two sizes, just to be safe of the darkest Artist jean on the shelf. I was super stocked because old kinda-fav jeans, even though I hate all my jeans, are Artist from back in at least 2007 when I worked there. I had a shimmer of hope in the name. I tried on the larger size first, hoping that if they didn't fit I would feel better about myself when I go could to the smaller size. Well...that DID NOT happen. They were SKIN TIGHT in my butt, and thighs and I barely got them buttoned. Back to the shelf for the artist jean.

What I really wanted was a cute pair of dark skinny jeans (but not so skinny that I look like an emo-kid-wanna-be. I wanted a Jcrew skinny jean look, but Jcrew's pants do not fit me! Their lowest rise is the highest pair of jeans I have ever put on my body. A few days later, I headed back to AE to pick up a tunic and decided to give their "New" Skinny Boot jean a try since they no longer carry the straight leg jean in the store. Much to my surprise...I loved them! And they run big, so I am in the size that I wore, pre-sit-on-my-butt-all-day at a computer. This puts a smile on my face. They have a great fit, not too low, still a little tight in my booty, but with a white girl butt this big, it's bound to be a little snug, they leg has a nice opening for wearing straight or cuffing up. I am very pleased. I will probably even head back for a second pair.

Say my Name

Everyone reading this knows I love monograms! If it can be monogrammed, it should. I found this last night in Julie's Instyle magazine and I am in love. Now I just need to find one at "real people" price.

Mod Cloth

This website has the cutest dresses! The prices are pretty reasonable too!

They go fast, so grab it when you see it!

Oh how I have missed you.

Wow life has been so extremely busy. I'm not even sure where my summer went. I know it was here...and now it's almost gone. The dark night is coming earlier and earlier every evening. This makes me sad. There is nothing I love more than when the sun goes down at 9 PM and rises at 6:30 AM. I started my journey to Pharmacy school this summer. I actually started a class and finished it! WOW right?! It was a intense 6-week Algebra course. I passed and I have never been so proud.

I started my own jewelry business with Lia Sophia and I started out with a BANG! My enthusiasm was through the roof...and now it's slowly dwindling as my exhaustion is catching up to me from trying to do TOO much at once. My purpose for Lia Sophia was to help supplement income when I start pharmacy school...that is, if I get in and finish the list of classes that I have to take before I can even I got a little excited and probably started a little sooner than I had originally wanted. Working a full time job, a part time job, and taking classes is starting to overwhelm me. I think I am going to try to cut back to 2-3 shows max a month. It is a great company and will be great income when I need it to be. Right now, I've blown every penny I have made :P...

For the fall sememester I have a pretty busy schedule. I started taking an online elementary calculus class and it is a HUGE MESS! The teacher was horrible and basically wants us to teach ourselves out of a text book. No tools or assistance really and he barely speaks english. I have asked the school to allow me to switch into a Fall II class that meets Tuesday and Thursday from 6:15-9:00 PM because this class is impossible to pass online. So Oct. 14-Dec. 12 is pretty much going to SUCK! It has to be done to reach my goal. If I stick with nothing else, I am sticking to my pharmacy plan! I think I can, I think I can. (update: They let me out!! Hip Hip Horray!)

I am finally going to New York City this fall with my hubby! I am head up from Cinci on the 18th and we are spending the weekend viewing the wonderful sites of the city! I absolutely cannot wait. I'll be sure to post up pictures of our adventure.
