Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

{went to the midnight showing last night...part one equals amazing. period.}

Personally, I wish they had done every movie in two parts, or three. I would have payed for all those extra tickets just for a little extra Harry Potter.  I think I'm going to go into a serious state of depression when the movies end. I demand you go and see it, if you haven't yet!

Graduation, hear me ROAR!

tank: borrowed
elephant necklace:gift

So in completely exciting news, it looks like I will be graduating (with my Associates degree) this spring 2011! And it only took me two years!  This means so many good things, like moving on to a "real" university where they have many more choices for classes, living on my own, being that much closer to my Bachelor degree, working towards my major, finding true love, traveling the world, getting my dream job... the possibilities are endless my friends! 

ps. Is anyone else absolutely delighted/hysterical/frantic/beside oneself/thrilled/fired up or even zipped up....that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (part 1) is coming to a theatre near you this Thursday at midnight??!!!  Ah I cannot contain myself! :D

The current loves of my life

Sadly I'm the type of person to laugh when I see someone fall or trip.  But luckily the only thing funnier than that, is when I fall.  Last night, after watching DWTS, and becoming overly excited.  I was practicing my sweet ballroom dance moves.  Of course, silly old me, was wearing socks and dancing on wood floors.  So in an epic attempt at a high kick, my other leg completely slips out from under me.  I come crashing to the floor landing right on my hip.  Classic.  I was probably laying on the floor for about three minutes crying from laughing so hard.  Who says I need friends or a significant other for entertainment? Besides making an ass out of myself, these are my other loves of the moment:

  • upcoming holidays
  • my abstract painting 
  • banana bread
  • exploring new grains
  • fancy scarves
  • morning cup of coffee
  • the compete ignorance of my bio class
  • rehearsal 
  • bored to death
  • finding my split again
  • brussel sprouts
  • wonderful fall weather
  • playing tag with my sister's kitten
  • how many times I have laughed this month due to two very specific people

Purple tights and acorns.

loafers: thrifted

Spent the day shopping around town with my parents and sister, who is home for a visit.  Added three more pairs of shoes to my already overwhelming collection. Enjoyed a delicious lunch of broccoli cheddar soup at Panera Bread.  And of course...did not slim down my ridiculous pile of homework.  Ah well, Thanksgiving break will be spent digesting textbooks as opposed to gravy and stuffing.

Rediculously long&large seaweed.

Halloween falling on three days!?

Because Halloween was on a Sunday this year, just plain old halloween turned into Halloween Weekend Hallapalooza!  After rehearsal on Thursdays (October 28th) I drove three hours to spend the night with my sister in Raleigh.  Then on Friday, after a delicious pancake breakfast, I drove the next leg, another three hour journey, to Appalachian State.  A bunch of my good friends go there, so I decided they were worth the six hour trip for a weekend visit. 

My current lifestyle of up by 8:00 and in bed by 11:00, was turned upside down, as we went to a total of five parties in three nights.  I had a complete blast seeing all my friends and in all three of my costumes, Cookie Monster, Harry Potter, and a deer.  But I felt more like a granny afterwards, I definitely needed and used this week and weekend to recover.  Please enjoy the photos!
