Lights, Camera, Action!

I absolutely LOVE movies but given my busy schedule at school I don't really get to see them this often. Over these past two weeks I've seen more movies than I have in a while and it's been fantastic! Last Sunday my friends and I went to see Avatar in 3D which I wanted to see just because everyone has seen it but I wasn't sure if I was going to like it or not.

Well I absolutely LOVED it. Although the story was totally cheesy I still loved it, and the effects were absolutely beautiful and amazing. Seeing it in 3D was definitely the way to go, and if anyone hasn't seen it you should go right now...I actually wouldn't mind seeing it again!

Yesterday my friends and I went to see When in Rome which I kind of didn't want to see just because of the 800 ads that they've been running but I was pleasantly surprised again.

While it wasn't the best in the world it was really cute, and some parts were pretty funny...Josh Duhamel was also pretty nice to stare at too! Overall it was a fun movie and a good choice for a Saturday afternoon.

When we got back we didn't really feel like going out, so we all decided to get take out and have a movie night at home. The first movie we rented was Nights in Rodanthe which I always wanted to see when it got out but never got the chance to.

Ok so I did end up missing a chunk of it because I was doing laundry but I saw about half of it and absolutely LOVED it and also DIED at the ending. I recommend this to everyone and really want to see the first half and also read the book as well.

After, we watched Disturbia which was on TNT (absolutely love that movie) and then rented I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell. I absolutely loved this book (even though many of the stories are SO wrong haha) and was really curious to see how they were going to make it into a movie.

It was really funny, and I was happy that some of my favorite stories from the book made it in, but I liked the book alot more and would definitely recommend it over the movie. Today was another lazy day spent doing a TON of homework and not much else. I also watched the Grammy's tonight and have to say that I was kinda unimpressed. I LOVED Gaga and Elton John in the beginning, and thought that Bon Jovi was fun but I didn't really like a lot of the other performances. Oh and I think I'm in the definite minority here but is anyone else besides me getting a little annoyed with Taylor Swift? I like her music but there's something about her that totally annoys me, and I was getting REALLY sick of seeing her so many times tonight!

So that was my boring weekend in a nutshell. Anyone else do anything exciting or see any good movies?

Good Reads

I literally JUST discovered this off of Vineyard Vogue's blog...has anyone else heard of Good Reads? I haven't done alot with it yet but it's this site where you can keep track of what you read, and what you want to read, as well as read reviews of books that you want to read. Right now I have a list of books that I want to read on my phone but this seems like a MUCH better place to keep track of everything. I don't get done with classes until about 8:30 tonight but I can't wait to explore this site when I get back!

Weight Loss Wednesday!

One of my many new years resolutions is not only to lose weight but to get healthy in general. My weight has definitely fluctuated since the beginning of high school but I have always been bigger than I've wanted to be, so, since I'm graduating this year, I decided that now's the best time to start dropping those lbs (Spring Break in Ft. Lauderdale is also a great motivator as well!) I've been pretty good about working out 5 days a week (I really need to start working out on the weekend as well) and counting calories with a food diary, but to keep myself accountable I decided to track my weight loss and have weight loss Wednesdays!

Ok so for this week I've lost: 2.5lbs. So happy to be off to a good start and can't wait to track my progress!

Pleased to Meet You

Once again I'm not doing a very good job on balancing everything I have going on this semester and have totally abandoned the bloggy world AGAIN. Maybe it's because I'm a second semester Senior but since recruitment ended I have been SOO unmotivated and really need to realize that I'm still in school for 4 more months (ahhhh!) There's a TON that's been going on since I last posted and I have lots of great things to post about but for tonight I thought that I would leave you all with something that I've thought about for a while (warning this is VERY random)

If I could trade lives with anyone for a day I think that it would be either Lady Gaga...

or Snooki.

Hmmmm I wonder what this says about me? Who would you all want to trade lives with?

PS- I noticed that while I was gone I gained a bunch of new followers so a big HI to all of you!

Bid Day!

Today is my Sorority's Bid Day which (for those who don't know) is when the new members get their bids to become part of our chapter! After a VERY long recruitment I am so happy that it's finally over and I can't wait to meet our brand new KDs tonight! We rented out a bar for the celebration and before all of the Seniors are getting together to celebrate our last one. I can't believe that this is my last bid day...I can still remember when I got my bid and I was FREAKING out I'm so excited for the new girls and all the fun that they're going to have during the new member period! I hope you all are having a great long weekend...anyone have anything fun planned?

Still Here!

Sorry about being slightly MIA lately school just started and I'm busy with the last couple days of sorority recruitment so I might not be back until this weekend. I can't believe that I just had my first day of second semester yesterday and that I'm a second semester Senior...ew. For those of you who are back I hope you're having a good first week and those on vacation, well, I'm so jealous! Sorry for the short post but I'll be back with much more this weekend!

Back to School

Sorry I couldn't really come up with a better title than this but I'm leaving for school today a week early for my last year of Rush (or "recruitment" as we call it.) California was AMAZING and I have had the best time at home being with my family. I'm so sad to be leaving already but I'm really happy to get back and I don't think my waistline can take being at home any new years diet is starting ASAP! I'll post a belated list of my new years resolutions this week and I hope you all are enjoying being back at work/school or vacation!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Years everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous, fun, and safe New Years Eve...what were your plans? Mine was absolutely fabulous (I'm kinda lazy right now so I'll give a longer recap when I get back!) and today I'm looking forward to laying out by the pool and watching Northwestern (my dad got his MBA there and since Michigan isn't in ANYTHING today we're def watching them!) kick some booty today...although I just checked the score and it doesn't look good. Have a very relaxing day everyone!
