No class!

Thursdays are my "no class" days.

Can I get a...

Hell yeah!?!

I really like this no class Thursday thing.

I'm sure once the semester gets goin', I'll be focusing on classes on Thursday (boo), but for right now, I'm taking full advantage of my free day. 

And with help from Pinterest, I'm hoping to tackle some projects on my no class Thursdays.

So, here are my ideas...

Spray Paint Thrift Finds

I love love love love love thrifting and a cool project.  Ever since I came across this neat and eclectic idea, I'm thinkin' I'll be seeing things in a whole different light.  Seeing figurines that are hideously-colored was usually an automatic turn-off for me.  Now, after seeing this, I have realized that all these ugly things needed was a good makeover.  The good ole spray paint is just the thing that could bring it back to life.

This is too freaking cute. I can't wait to grab my shadow box that has been sitting in my closet for years now. Seriously, I have never quite figured out what to do with the darn thing, so now I know! I love the idea of using push pins, but you can even buy fabric flower stickers which come in bundles, making this project cheaper. You can even use this: COUPON

Heart-painted Rocks

Some people have a weird obsession with rocks.  I happen to not be one of those people.  Rocks bore me.  They are blah.  The only reason why I dig 'em maybe a teensy bit is because they are nature-y (like my made up word?).  I'm all about some color, friends.  So, when I came across this cool idea, I got super excited.  My outdoor balcony area has lots of pots and plants, and these little painted rocks would be a nice added touch to my little set up.  So, I'm thinkin' I'll be rock-collectin' in the near future. 

So, this week has been quite entertaining, as I have been getting "the DL" about rush from my baby sister.  If you've ever gone through Greek rush, then you would know that it's a tiring and stressful, but rewarding process.  After rushing for a week, my baby sister pledged the sorority Delta Gamma.  And I couldn't be more excited for her! 

Below, are some "Greek" goodies
that I discovered on Etsy. 

Thanks to all of the wonderful artists and crafters!

Back to the grind

I think Ollie could tell that I didn't want to get off my lazy a$$ this mornin', as I kept snoozin' my alarm.  But seriously---who wouldn't wanna snooze their alarm after such a relaxing and enjoyable month-long vacay?

Not I...

and anyone else in their right mind.  I mean, it is hard impossible going back to the real world after that sort of treatment.  Oh, I hate you, reality. 

So, here's to a brand spankin' new semester...

While the kickoff to a new semester may be annoyingly stressful, it does have its perks (if you can believe it).

Backpacks, people.  
Now is the time to grab a cute new backpack.

All, of course, from Etsy.

Adult Beverages

I'm sure that y'all can agree that 
being 21 sure does have its perks.

I, for one, am not at all ashamed to admit
that flashin' my ID in exchange for "adult beverages"
is the biggest perk of them all.  

So, since I'm finally a big girl and am able to buy all sorts of goods
to concoct something really tasty, 
well, now I'm stumped as to what to make.   

I mean, seriously...

With all of these options, how am I to pick something?

  • 6  oz frozen (thawed) limeade concentrate (from 12-oz can)
  • 3  tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2  cups citrus-flavored vodka or orange juice
  • 1  cup orange-flavored liqueur or orange juice
  • 4  cups 100% cranberry juice blend
