I can't believe I'm saying this, but I go back to Georgetown tomorrow! Well, if Irene has anything to say about it, maybe not, but... assuming I can land despite tropical storms and such, I will be moved in by Sunday! Kind of bittersweet. Obviously I can't wait to be back, see my friends, and start new classes. But I'm going to miss my family and friends here so much! It's hard having two lives, isn't it? I'd say anyone else in college could agree...

So this is something your probably haven't seen in awhile (ever?) - me wearing color! When I was working at Old Navy back a few weeks ago I saw this on a rack I was processing and fell in love with the cut. Since it's a medium it's a bit big, but the low back (see two below) is so pretty! And I like it tied with the little floral tie. Weird, isn't it? Don't worry, I won't be becoming Rainbow Brite anytime soon
Woah. Can we just stop for a second and process the fact that I have nicely done nails!? I know. Weird. We shan't reference that previous post where my nails were, ummmm, let's just say not fit for the Internet. But Elizabeth and I went out for lunch today (and got 3 amazingly yummy desserts to share between the two of us. Yes, I did say 3) and afterward I convinced her to go down to the little cheap nail salon nearby and get a mani-pedi with me! After all the time I spent on my feet in Old Navy lately, I decided my feet needed a little pampering.
It appears yesterday was the day of notes and today is anecdotes: so I came down to the den yesterday with a pair of earrings in my hand and said to my mom - "Mom, will you please inflict the pain on me that I can't do to myself and re-pierce my ears for me?" Literally, word for word. Needless to say it was a painful few minutes in the bathroom, but that's what you get for not wearing earrings for upwards of 4 months...
Seriously though, hurricane Irene better not get in the way of me getting back to school! I mean, I'm sad to go, but I've set my mind on being back tomorrow, and waiting around a few extra days in Minnesota due to inclement weather is not going to make me feel any better about leaving. Grrrr. Now I need to go finish up the dregs of my packing.
One more thing though: due to the fact that no one responded to my post yesterday claiming a prize, I won't be sending out my prize. I'm sorry if this makes anyone unhappy, but I gave everyone who entered a full 24 hours to jump in and ask for it. I still love you all for reading, thank you for all your support! Have a lovely evening and, for those of you on our Eastern Coast, I wish you luck. Send good vibes towards my flight :)
