Its Friday!!!

Yay!!! so glad it is finally here!!! 

Let me tell you guys this week has been a bunch of ridiculous! I officially hate driving again, not only did I experience insane amounts of traffic making me late 4 out 5 days this week I also scratched my poor little beetle up pretty bad coming of the bank drive thru. 

BUT I have been able to listen to some great songs and this happens to be my favorite song this week


Luke Bryan...oh the things I would do to him...if I wasn't in a happily committed relationship of course...but even so if I could get a hallpass for that I would take it without a second thought! 

There are so many great country artists and concerts in Chicago this summer and I will not be able to catch any of them. That part makes me a bit sad! 

In other very not so exciting news my suitcase and travelers backpack have come in the mail! 

Suitcase-bigger than this pic shows
My backpack :) 


I am seeing The Boy this weekend...probably having wings w/G and going shopping with A for prom dresses this weekend! Did I tell you guys about that yet?? One of our friends is a big fan of themed birthdays and so this year there will be a prom! 
G& I are in charge of making the backdrop! Here is the description from the FB invite..so fun! 




Good times! I can't wait...in the meantime I need to find something ridiculous to wear since I went all out for my real prom I want to have some fun with this. I am thinking I may thrift until I find a good 80's style prom dress! Any suggestions are appreciated :) 


Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!!!

Weekend Recap!

I know I am a day late but Mondays are always so hectic for me and well I am just lazy too. Anywho! I had a great weekend spent lots of time with friends and The Boy


Friday- I met up with G and one of his fave students then we headed out for some wings! The plan for the night was to have seen Think Like a Man but that got changed and then unchanged and just didn't work out for me so now I have to figure out a time to see it! 


Saturday-Hung out all day in bed being a lazy bum which felt great! Then I headed to BWW to watch the UFC fights and the Hawks game. Being the only girl at a table  with 7 guys has some moments that can make you feel like you need to use ear muffs! 


Sunday-I met up with some of my fave people to have a little last chance get together for Bellydancer! She leaves for Thailand on the 1st! Can't believe it! I can not wait to go visit her :) By the by Whole Foods has some great cakes! I got a vanilla/chocolate cake from them and it was amazeballs. 


Soooo that was my weekend and it was fantastic so here are some pictures....



Knockout Punch !
The kitty really liked him 


doing a little dance 
yes those cupcakes on my socks
some of my fave people 

How was your weekend??

Thankful Thursday!

I was about to do a Its Ok Thursday post but I want to change it up a bit and just share with you all some of the things I am so thankful for right now....
ThankfulThursday

-My Family- They are seriously amazing. I know I say it a ton but they have been so supportive and even though I know my mom is terrified of me moving across the world she shows me nothing but excitement and support






-The Boy...this is going to get me made fun of but I am so happy to have him back in my life. I love him and I am so glad that we worked things out. He is also being amazingly supportive knowing that it means that I will be gone for a whole year. 


-My Friends...ooh this is also another one I say all the time but I love them :) They are great and I am trying to spend as much time with them as I can before I go! 



-Opportunities! Yes seriously how many people get the opportunity to travel across the world to do something they love doing and get 8 job offers to do it? Not many! OOh and this is the town I am pretty sure I will be moving to: Zhongshan City 




-I am so thankful for blogging! I love being able to share my life with everyone and read about everyone else's lives as well. AND I love all my new blogger friends...hopefully one day I will get to see them IRL! 


-The internet...haha I had to say this one! Without the internet I would not be able to go to school online, skype and keep in touch with people! 


-Everything...I think I am just very thankful for everything today. I don't know why I woke up in such a great mood but I am just feeling so happy with my life right now. 


I think that's it for now!
What are you thankful for today?
