I've Been Waiting For You by ABBA

I was looking through the blogs that I have under the Blog Obsessions tab last night. I decided to do some "spring cleaning" since some of them haven't been updated in quite some time. Since I have so many new followers, I was wondering if you would want to be one of the blogs that I have mentioned in my tab (since I follow all of you back!). Its not really a sponsor, but a free way to get some views and hopefully new followers. I always like to check out what blogs other bloggers are reading since most have a blog roll like my tab. So anyway, if you'd like me to put your blog on my tab, please leave a comment, and if you want to do the same back, I'd really appreciate it!!! :)

Ok, so today's post is being posted really late. This is because our internet connection has been so weak and slow that nothing has loaded all day. I finally got it fixed, hence this post being put up! However, I was mad with the internet and ignored my laptop for most of the day. So much so, that I took my outfit pictures with my phone instead of photo booth. These pictures actually turned out better than I expected, and the colors are 100% true, unlike how it sometimes turns out from photo booth. However, I'm holding my phone in these pictures. So I may try different ways of taking outfit pictures this week. The best would be with a really nice camera and tripod (but thats expensive!) or hubby taking them (but he's busy at work or studying a lot). Let me know what you think too!

Shirt: Hollister / Cami: Aeropostale / Jeans: American Eagle / Shoes: Toms / Sweater: Danskin / Turquoise Earrings and bracelet (not really seen in picture): St. Thomas market / Glasses: Burberry

(Yes, this is the same sweater as I wore the other day just in a different color. I miss dance and having a real reason to wear these sweaters.)

I did end up taking the outfit picture with photo booth. There are pros and cons to taking the pictures with my phone and with photo booth. The colors for this particular outfit are better from my phone, but photo booth is not always that off on colors. I do like the blank canvas background I use when I use my laptop and not holding anything in my hand. I do like both pictures... so I might do a little of both to change it up around here.

I'm happy to report our internet is working much better now :)

Makes Me Wonder by Maroon 5

Its been a relaxing and successful day. After a morning of sleeping in, I met up with another bridesmaid to get everything we needed for the bridal shower we are hosting next weekend. Then a friend came over, baked cookies, played cards, and made dinner. Now I'm watching National Treasure till GCB and Real Housewives of New Jersey come on. Plus, we had a beautiful, clear, sunny 65 degree day. Great ending for the weekend!
Cardigan: Old Navy / Cami: Aeropostale / Skinnies: Delia's / Flats: Target / Earrings: Walmart

This outfit was perfectly comfortable for the weather and the things I did today. I love these cobalt skinnies, and this is definitely my favorite cardigan. I love wearing favorites :)

Fun, Fun, Fun by The Beach Boys

Yesterday while we were at Westminster, I decided to go into town to one of the trusted hair salons to see if they could fix my hair. I was in luck! I got my hair fixed and am so happy about it. The style looks great and I am so much happier than I was last week when I got it cut. Anyway, after a big breakfast at Perkins this morning, we came back and my parents went home. It was a fun couple of days with them. Tonight, we are meeting up with some friends, because its the last week for one of the med students. He's doing his last elective rotation at home, then took vacation to study for boards. So we're out to celebrate!
Shirt: Macy's / Jeans: American Eagle / Boots: Crocs / Cardigan: Danskin / Earrings: NY & Co.

Like my dance sweater? Its just sleeves and a hood :)

Dance sweaters make me want to dance!

I love how my hair looks now!!!!

By the way, Happy 1 year Anniversary to Prince William and Princess Kate!

Good Riddance by Green Day

Its the perfect day for a casual friday. I like this outfit for being comfortable and relaxed, yet the button up and shiny flats dress up the jeans a little bit. The perfect outfit for dinner and a choir concert with the family tonight.
Shirt: Ralph Lauren / Cami: Aeropostale / Jeans: Peebles / Flats: Jessica Simpson / Earrings: Kohl's

Have a great weekend!

Food Adventures

Since my family's here, I don't have time to make a Thursday Latelies video, and I realized I haven't shown pictures of food lately. So here are some of the things I've made in the past month. Two of the meals will look similar (they are both italian chicken on noodles), however they are two very different recipes. One is made in a skillet, the other in the crockpot. But they all tasted yummy!

Tomato Tortellini soup

Cheesy scrambled eggs and toast

Italian chicken with italian sauce and noodles

Oriental Crunchy Salad

Oriental Crunchy Salad with popcorn chicken

Popcorn chicken and tator tots.... this was my lunch the other day... I might be a child, but it was sooo good!

Thanks to pinterest I found a creamy italian chicken crockpot recipe

And here's how it looks on noodles.

Hope you're inspired to make something yummy tonight! :)

Say It Right by Nelly Furtado

The next few days, my parents will be staying with us. Today was an awards presentation at Westminster, and my sister received one, so they went to that and decided to come visit hubby and I too. We're all headed back up there for her choir concert on Friday. Today, I subbed a half day of 1st grade. I love subbing for this class. The past two times, as well as today, I only teach them math and then take them to specials. They really are a great class, and I am an expert at teaching 1st grade math. :)
Sweater: American Eagle / Skirt with Belt: H&M / Heels: Bandolino / Scarf: American Eagle / Earrings: Kohl's

This scarf and sweater are a pretty nice combination. And since my hair is a little shorter than I wanted, this is a nice way to hide that fact!

Ebony And Ivory by Stevie Wonder

The blanket on the couch is calling my name. I have a few errands to run and some food to be put in the crockpot, but since its been cold this week, all I want to do is cuddle with that blanket. This weather has been very confusing. It was 80 degrees the other day, and now its in the 40s. I think today's outfit is perfect for this weird weather, since its been so bipolar. The white pants are happy and cheery like spring (or snow), and the black sweater and booties keep me warm. I also really like the classic black and white look.
Sweater: Gap / Pants: Gap / Booties: Steve Madden / Watch: American Eagle / Earrings: Target / Glasses: Burberry

Hope you're staying warm! :)

Christmas In The Caribbean by Jimmy Buffet

Yesterday was the perfect ending for the weekend. Hubby did a lot of paperwork, I did a lot of things around the apartment, and we both felt accomplished. Best part? We both got to swear sweats all day and be comfortable. Anyway, I said yesterday that I would post videos of the winning performances. I recorded them myself, but found these recordings that have better sound than mine. The theme for the performances this year was decades, and they were all given a number. For example, 5, so they could use songs from 1955, 1965, 1975 etc. Most of the groups picked their songs with another theme in mind, so they would go together nicely. Kappa Delta did Christmas, and Theta Chi did the Evolution of Dance. Enjoy!

And there you have it. The champs of Sing n Swing 2012!

Come On Eileen by Dexy Midnight Runners

Yesterday was a success! We had lots of alumnae come for our mingle with the undergrads, dinner, and cheering on the girls for Sing n Swing.... plus Kappa Delta won!!!!!!! Hubby's fraternity also won for the guys, so it was a pretty great night! I plan to post some pictures of the weekend tomorrow, including video of the winning performances. Here's what I wore:
Shirt: Loft / Jeans: American Eagle / Boots: Steve Madden / Scarf: American Eagle / Watch: American Eagle

Peacoat: Target

Purse: Vera Bradley

Its the perfect Sunday to be lazy, and that's what hubby and I intend to do. :)
And we're supposed to get snow tonight?! What's up with that?

One Less Lonely Girl by Justin Bieber

Its a busy day for me today! This morning I'm meeting with another bridesmaid to do some planning for the bridal shower for our friend. Then I'm off to Westminster for the Kappa Delta reunion that I've been planning. We have a little over 40 women who will be there to do some mingling, get dinner, and then cheer on our current undergrad sisters in the Sing n Swing competition tonight! It should be a very fun, and girly day! :)

This outfit is what I changed into to wear last night. We went to the Ron Paul rally at the University of Pittsburgh, which is the first political rally I've ever been to. They specifically said to dress casual, and Ron Paul, himself, was wearing jeans and a button down shirt. 
Shirt: Ralph Lauren / Jeans: American Eagle / Flats: Target / Earrings: NY & Co. / Necklace: Stella and Dot

Headband: Walmart

This is my new haircut. Its shorter than I had wanted... I told her to keep the length in the front and shorten it in the back, which it is, however the length in the front definitely didn't stay where I had hoped... so I decided to put on the headband since I was having trouble styling it and figuring out how I wanted it to look. (And for some reason, I didn't take my outfit picture with it on)

Eye Of The Tiger by Journey

This morning I am going to get my haircut, finish folding laundry, and put away clean dishes. This afternoon I'm subbing high school social studies. This evening, I may be venturing in to Pittsburgh with some friends to go see Ron Paul, since our one friend loves him. It is going to be an entertaining day. PS. The song title for this post is now officially stuck in my head. :)
Cardigan: Gap / Cami: Aeropostale / Pants: Macy's / Flats: Shoe Show / Earrings: Peebles

I feel like this cardigan may have shrank... and by shrank I mean shortened. I like longer tops, so I decided that adding the purple cami would work, and it did. I'm not even sure what you would call the color of the cardigan (the color in these pictures is exactly right), but I decided it was kind of a light purple/grey and was really excited that my earrings matched. This is a pretty comfortable work outfit.

Dude Looks Like A Lady by Aerosmith

This morning I am thankful that school's have teachers cover classes if a substitute is not available, or gets called really late and really cannot make it to school on time because it takes longer than 15 minutes to get ready in the morning. Yup, I got called with just about that much time to get ready and be at the high school ready to sub math. So I called the school and the secretary was very nice and said they'll get someone to cover till I can get there. Which means I have time to shower and put together an outfit. Today's outfit post is what I wore yesterday. I've been excited about this orange shirt since I got it, and haven't officially posted an outfit picture with it, so here it is. The orange shirt and pink cami, perfectly match my scarf too! :)

Lewisburg Weekend Recap

I tried taking a bunch of pictures of the chocolate we ate this weekend at the festival... so I snapped some of about half of what we ate (everything was so good, that some of the things I ate before I remembered to take a picture!). I also posted some pictures from the hike we took on the trail and from Hubby's medical school campus. Its a very pretty area, so it was easy to take good pictures.
