You know you are grown up when...

You have lunch with your 4th grade teacher you have not seen for 17(!!!) years! She had such an influence on me, I have always meant to get together with her. I e-mailed her from the school website, and, today was the big lunch date!

You are excited to go home to use the special handwash cycle on Mom's fancy washing machine. Cashmere sweater was just washed and other things are in line.

You are too tired to pull an all nighter to get papers/ projects done... which is what I have to do now to avoid the thought of an all nighter or sleeping through my last day of classes tomorrow!

Still alive...

The taking three graduate classes was a great idea... for the first four weeks. The last week and the upcoming week I am doing more work than I know what to do with! The good news is that Thursday by 8:30PM I am DONE with everything and off to MAINE!

Bra la la?

I drove my mother to Nordstroms to go bra shopping. She told me about this bra that was amazing and wanted to buy more of them today. She walks in to the store and asks the saleswoman: Do you have any Bra la las? The woman politely smiled and knew what she was talking about... the Spanx Bra-llelujah! Very funny, or at least I thought so!

Fall 2008 Lilly

Surprisingly, I do not have an overwhelming wish-list for Fall 2008 Lilly (not yet anyways). I really liked this skirt:
It would look cute with a navy cardigan and some navy ballet flats. The pattern also comes in a pair of capris. There are a couple other pieces I will keep my eye on, but I will begin to anticipate the Spring Collection coming out... However, some of their looks for girls were so cute... can those things come in my size?

Halfway there!

I am halfway done with my graduate school program for the summer- yeah! I am loving every minute of it and cannot decide which class is my favorite because each one is so interesting and makes me think about things in new ways. However, it is a good feeling knowing that I have made it through half of it and there is hope that I will push through to the end!

I went out with one of my classmates from previous summers tonight. She teaches at a small school in Eastern CT. She gave me a tour of the school and we had dinner here. It was such a beautiful night to sit down, catch up on each other's lives, and sip some of this!

Must finish writing a paper...

Preppy Beer Pong Table

Some of my friends threw a "tea partay" over Memorial Day Weekend that I was unable to attend; however, I did manage to get a picture of their beer pong table despite missing out on the pink and green cups.

Happy 4th!

Here's to pink and green fireworks... and, of course, an American Government teacher reminding you that between bites of hamburgers, sips of beer, and lightings of sparklers take a moment to remember your founding fathers AND the women that kept them in line!

Longing to relax on the dock in Maine...

I was looking at my towel from last summer dreaming about relaxing on the dock in Maine...

I also came up with some ideas for new towels... All are and can be monogrammed!

Until then, I am writing papers, reading novels, researching, taking exams, and all the other fun things that are involved in earning a Master's Degree...yeah!

Preppy Yoga Bag

I am on a mission to buy a cute yoga bag. Will it be seersucker or toile?

Both bags are by Ame & Lulu.
