Olympic Fever

Has anyone else out there gotten swept up in Olympic Fever? I literally have been watching it every possible moment and they have been amazing so far! I think my favorites to watch have been all of the skiing events and the figure skating. I was absolutely amazed when Lindsey Vonn won the gold, and think that it is absolutely amazing that she was able to win despite her injury. I'm watching Ice Dancing right now, and even though some of it is a little weird, I'm a total sucker for all of the dramatic performances. I think my favorites so far have been the Americans who skated to Phantom of the Opera, and the couple who skated to the theme from Requiem for a Dream...both performances were fantastic! I also cannot WAIT for the womens figure skating tomorrow night it should be amazing. GO TEAM USA! What have been your favorite things to watch so far?

On a completely unrelated side note, I saw this How I Met Your Mother episode one time, and the main point of the episode was that nothing ever good happens after 2am. Now when I saw the episode I totally laughed it off and didn't really think anything of it but after a totally WEIRD experience that happened to my housemates and I (which is a long story but involved a massive fight breaking out at our house) I have to go back and think that this is kind of true. What do you all think about this?

So that's about it for tonight...back to watching more Ice Dancing!

ETA: Ok the Canadian couple who just took the does anyone else think that they weren't as good as the American team (of Davis and White) or am I just biased and totally missing something?

Weight Loss Thursday

Midterms are HERE (weird that they're here already) so I completely forgot to do Weight Loss Wednesday's for the past two weeks....whoops! So before getting ready for my riding practice today, I quickly weighed myself to update you all on my progress.

Past two weeks: -3.2lbs
Total: -6.7lbs

Wahoo I'm pass the 5lb mark! Which is a little bit of a surprise considering that I'm the WORST eater/starbucks coffee drinker when I'm studying for tests. Anyone out there have any good tips on what to eat? In other news it's THURSDAY....the weekend is only a day away!

Growing Up

Today I went to my school's spring career fair, and while I was waiting in line to talk to (potential) future employers I was thinking about how I've been feeling more and more like a "grown up" lately. Maybe it's the fact that I'm starting to come to terms with the fact that I'm graduating in a few months, or the fact that I received a "save the date" card for my grand big's wedding in October, and it's weird to think about attending a wedding "on my own" for the first time without my parents. And for some reason (I really don't know why) when I was trying to figure out a time to meet up with my great-grand big, who was in town today, for drinks tonight or coffee tomorrow, I felt like a grown up again. I don't know why I've been feeling like this lately, and I'm still not sure if I like this or not, but it's definitely weird to realize that I'm going to be out in the "real world" in a couple months and I still have NO idea what I'm going to do with my life. Sorry that this has been kind of a rambling post...I guess the career fair just brings it out in me!

Saturday Randoms

Happy Saturday everyone! It's finally sunny here and we actually haven't had snow for a couple days but that's going to change after this weekend and we're supposed to get snow again next week. I'm leaving for a horse show this afternoon, which I probably should start packing for haha but I have a couple random things to post about that I haven't this week so here they are!

The Olympics are finally here! Although I love them both and am usually OBSESSED with watching the gymnastics in the summer I think I like the winter ones a little bit more for the figure skating and skiing/snowboarding. I also can not believe that one of the Georgian lugers died yesterday. They showed the footage before the opening ceremonies started and it was so scary to watch. I have to admit I don't know if I would be able to compete after hearing about that, and I feel so sorry for both his family and his teammates.

What did you all think of the opening ceremonies? I thought that some parts were really cool, and some parts were pretty weird. I absolutely LOVED Team USA uniforms and totally want to snag one of those hats!

On a completely unrelated note, in January I won Blackeyed Susan's Kate Spade planner giveaway and I never posted about it. Here's a picture of the planner as well as a couple surprises she sent me:

I am absolutely OBSESSED with everything and have been using the planner and pen nonstop. Thank you SO SO much Susan!!

So that's about it for me today...since I'm going to be away for Valentine's day and don't have a boyfriend anyways (grrrrrr) I'm going to have to live vicariously through all of you. What are your plans for Valentine's Day?

Snow Day

I don't know about everyone else but we are getting another GIANT snowstorm, and today our classes were canceled. I don't care how old I am, I still absolutely LOVE snow days and they always make me feel like a little kid again, except instead of staying in with hot chocolate and watching Nickelodeon or The Big Comfy Couch, my friends and I went to the bars instead haha. It was a great way to spend the afternoon and also made me realize how much I'm going to miss college! We're supposed to get snow all night and tomorrow, and one of my classes has been canceled already so hopefully we'll have another one tomorrow. I don't have any pictures of the snow today, but here are some pictures that I took around our campus yesterday:

I hope you all are enjoying the week so far!

The Super Bowl!

Happy Superbowl Sunday everyone! Even though I'm not a huge football fan I'm SO excited for the big game just for an excuse to watch alot of tv, drink, and eat snack foods all day. Who are you all rooting for? I think I'm going to cheer on the Saints just because this is their first time and I always love an underdog haha. I also cannot WAIT for the commercials...those and the halftime show are always the highlights for me. A couple friends of ours are hosting a party so we're going to head over there later today and it should be a blast!

In other was everyone's weekend did you all get alot of snow? We got a good amount on Friday and are supposed to get another storm Tuesday which I'm actually kind of excited for! Friday my housemates and I went over to happy hour at one of our favorite bars, and then a friend's party where I drank a little too much haha so on Saturday we were just kinda of lazy and stayed in which was nice and a perfect way to enjoy the snowy day! Oh and I'm sorry about not doing a Weight-Loss Wednesday this week...our internet has been screwy lately but I loss 1lb this week which brings my total up to 3.5lbs so far (but I'm probs going to gain a good chunk of that back today!) Oh and before I end...what did you all think of LOST? So I'm not really sure but are they now doing alternate timelines? I was so confused throughout the whole thing but I absolutely LOVED it and I was also so sad that Juliet died for real this time I always liked her and Sawyer together. Enjoy the Super Bowl!

It's Finally Here!

After month's of waiting, today has finally arrived! No, I'm not talking about Groundhog day (although I do want to know if there's going to be 6 more weeks of winter) but rather....

the last season of LOST starts tonight!! WOOO I couldn't be happier and I am so excited to see what kinds of crazy things they have in store for us this season. I'm already planning on getting all my work done early today so that I can give all of my attention to the show tonight and tomorrow I can't wait to discuss it! Anyone else super excited about this or is it just me?
