New Year

2012 has been a pretty good year. Here's to making 2013 a great one as well. 
In 2012 I got a scholarship for my last semester of college, got promoted at work, rejoined DZ, started dating Andrew, and graduated college!
There have been many ups and downs, but I wouldn't change a thing. 
Tonight will be spent with Andrew and friends. :)
Have a safe and fun new year's eve y'all. 
Happy New Year! 
What are your plans?

Christmas Buys

For Christmas I ended up getting money and some giftcards. I decided to replace my old black north face. It is getting a bit worn out and it's a kids sized one, so this time around I opted for the pink ribbon north face denali in black got a women's xs. I am impatiently awaiting for it to arrive in the mail. Luckily dick's sporting goods had it on sale online for 25% off, so I snatched it up right away! What is your favorite color for a north face and what type?

I also got a gift card to Nebraska Furniture Mart so I opted to get The Hunger Games on blu ray. It should be arriving in the mail shortly as well. :) Have you seen the movie?

Red Vest

I had been wanting a red fleece vest for a while now and finally came across one! It's not too expensive and it's monogrammed, score! I ordered this puppy tonight and am super excited for it to arrive!
Check out the etsy store for more cute monogrammed items.  Here
I ordered the vest in red and the monogram will be cream!

The Weird Interview

The job interview I had today was short and weird. The company and what I would be doing there isn't what I am about. Let's just say I won't be going back for the second interview/ ride along day. So the job hunt continues.
Any suggestions on where to look? is where I have been looking so far.

Job Interview!

I applied for two jobs last night. This morning, as of five minutes ago I got a call asking for an interview tomorrow for one of them. :) Wish me luck! It is with an event marketing place, so I would be using my degree some what! I'm excited and nervous at the same time.
I will keep y'all updated. This is especially exciting since I just graduated 6 days ago. I am very blessed.

p.s. we got our first snow here....the roads are very dangerous and people suck at driving. Stay safe and warm everyone. It's only 30 degrees here today at most. BBRRR.....

College Graduation

I graduated college on 12/14/12. The ceremony was kind of boring and my cap was too big for my head. I spent the first twenty minutes trying to get it to stay with bobby pins. I didn't trip as I walked across the stage! After word my family and my boyfriend Andrew went out to dinner at Winstead's...we kept it low key. Sadly I didn't get to see my grandparents....they left after the ceremony and I couldn't find my family to take pictures...yeah. 
BUT I had a party at my house with fabulous friends/some family members after dinner. It was a lot of fun and am really appreciative of everyone who helped me to celebrate. 
I can't believe I am done with college. EEK. Not sure if I am keen on spending the rest of my life working....kinda going to miss school. 
Now I will leave you with a few pictures from my college graduation from UMKC. LOVE ME SOME DELTA ZETA. :)
All of these pictures are mine. 

My grad cap!

Rose cupcakes in pink and green in honor of Delta Zeta for the party. Made by me.

Hello Netflix. Goodbye Productivity.

I caved. I finally signed up for netflix. We will see how this one month free trial goes and how much I actually use the darn thing. I can watch netflix on my mac, ipad, iphone, wii, and blu ray player. Let's be real, we hardly use our wii and my blu ray player. My sister has had it for over a year now and loves it. She doesn't have cable in her room, so that is a way for her to watch some shows.
Any good suggestions for shows? :)

Ipad 2!

Long story bf has an ebay account. We bid on an ipad 2 the white 32gb one. Turns out it has a major crack in the screen that starts at the top and works its way down the entire thing. More visible once zoomed in on the pictures. It should be here by Friday....looking to possibly get the screen fixed and a cover for it to keep it. I'm going to try it out for a week or two and see how it goes. Or I might try re-selling it.

I am also selling my ipod touch which is also a 32gb one. So we will see.
Anyway i am looking to get suggestions for cute/cheap/sturdy cases in case I decide to keep the ipad and it's not too expensive to replace the screen.

Wanted to share a few pictures from my last formal as an active DZ. My senior award was: The Most DZ Spirit. Ignore the pink scribbles, for privacy reasons I didn't want my last name on here. My date was my handsome bf, Andrew. :)
