And I also ordered this dress. But sadly, they were out of my size :(
So instead, I got this dress...we'll how how it looks in person.
All ya'll Baylor fans should check it out! Sic 'em!!
A new pair of black leggings since my ones from last fall need to be replaced (this will be a for sure 1st buy once my month of no shopping is over)
A comfy college shirt like this...they didn't have Baylor, so I will settle for a pic of the Oklahoma one
While I was at RND's apartment this weeknd, I was browsing her movie collection and came upon St. Elmo's Fire. Since I love 80's movies and I had never seen this one, RND was nice enough to let me borrow it. (Thanks!!)
The movie is about a group of friends and their 1st year out of college...and since I am about a year and 1/2 out, I fully related with this movie. In fact, at brunch with the lovely LEB this Sunday we were discussing our life since college and how much different it is than we thought it would be. LEB mentioned that she thought colleges should prepare us in some way for the fact that grown-up life is hard and basically to not expect everything to be as completely perfect as you thought it would be. My reply to that is that if college told us that then I would still be in college and never graduate :)
St. Elmo's Fire takes you through the very real job gains and losses, relationship changes, family changes, etc that happen after college. And it reminded me that I am not the only person who misses college and most significantly the simplicity of life in college..
Has anyone out there been watching The Cougar? (On TV Land Wednesday nights 9PM.) Since I don't have any shows on Wednesday I will occasionally watch this new show. It was created by the same people that created The Bachelor, but ovi this has a premise of an older woman looking for a younger man.
But I've noticed something about this Cougar (whose name is Stacey)...she apparently doesn't like it when the suitors tell her that they love her. Everyone one of the boys that has said 'I love you' to her has been dismissed at the next 'Kiss Off' ceremony. Now isn't the point of this show to fall in love? Why are you sending home the guys who say 'I love you'?
**On a side note...this 'Kiss Off' ceremony is hilarious...instead of the boys receiving a rose or not receiving a rose to determine if they stay or go, each one has to walk up to The Cougar and try to kiss her. If she turns and he kisses her check, then the boy must go home....but if she lets them kiss her, they can stay. And trust me, it's awkward.
So I have had weddings on the brain recently....let's blame it on the 3 wedding showers and 1 wedding I have attended in the past month and the 2 weddings I have coming up in the next month. Well with the BF out of town for a few days, I decided it would be the perfect time to indulge myself in a girly flick...and with weddings in my mind of course I picked up Bride Wars from the local Blockbuster. OMG, AMP (ie- bestie).....have you seen this?! If not, you must rent it. And watch without AKD (ie- bestie's BF). This is us if we get engaged in the same time period.
Seriously...she's brunette, I'm blonde. She's creative, I'm analytical. We're both competitive, but loving people...who would go insane just like the girls in the movie if our weddings were booked on the same day. This is truly a movie all girls can relate to because it is very similar to the way girls fight in real life....a little dirty because we know the deepest, darkest secrets and fears, but in a way where we would never, ever want to hurt the other because bestie love will always be there. There is a scene in the movie where Kate Hudson says "I miss my friend." I cried...I have been there. I have been in a fight with the bestie where I am so mad at her, but she is the only person who can comfort me at the same time. Guys just don't understand this kind of friendship. Miranda and Carrie had it....Liv and Emma in Bride Wars have it...and AMP and I have it. I love you bestie...thanks for always being there for me. Thanks for teaching me to be a stronger person like you and for always being there for me. But do not even dare get engaged during the time I am getting married :) Or else it's on!
