So every year we play the University of Texas and it's a huge deal. I mean it's the biggest, drunken, mess of a weekend, but some of the most fun you'll ever have. Wellllll yesterday morning I ordered my ticket for my senior OU/TX!! You get a hotel and fit a million girls in a room or in my case 6 and then get drunk, go to the West End in Dallas, and see all you friends while also screaming that Texas sucks. We even get the Friday off for that weekend so everyone drives down there. OU/TX is really special for me, because my dad has been taken me to the game since I was 8. This is going to be my 14th consecutive game and every year I attend the game with my dad. So I wanted to share some pictures with you! Oh and I had extensions last year so my hair was really long.

Apologies and Updates

Wow it has been so long since I've posted, but so much has been going on! I moved out of the cottage I was living in and into my boyfriend's brother's house (He's a lifesaver or I would have been homeless for formal recruitment!). In Norman the move out date to move in date to another apartment is about 15-17 days which is completely inconvenient because it's right in the middle of rush or formal recruitment for sororities.

This is my senior year at University of Oklahoma so my last rush as an active member of Alpha Chi Omega. It was definitely bitter sweet and I cried plenty on preference night which is the very last night of rush and very formal. On bid day we got plenty of cute involved freshman who will make a great addition to our house!

After rush ended my boyfriend and I celebrated 6 months together. Doesn't seem like a long time, but we met in a very unconventional college way. I don't have a picture sorry! We don't take many pictures together and I definitely blame that on him. We are still going strong though with this being our first full school year and football season together! That's the best news is football season starting this week! I had my first day of senior year although this isn't my last year of college. In October I'm taking the LSAT and applying to law school soon after which will be 3 more years of school.

Ok so I'm sorry it took me so long to post again! I will be blogging about the cooler I've been painting since I'm soo close to finishing it and other news as I go through my senior year.

Crafts on crafts on crafts

So I tend to be super nerdy with painting and always have some craft that I'm doing on the side during the summer and even school year. Here's an incompleted cooler that I'm painting for my boyfriend and tomorrow I'm painting wine glasses for my new apartment next year so I'll posts those also!

This is the top. Oh and these are all hand drawn.

This is one of the sides. (obviously touch ups will have to be made)

The other side.

The front and back of the cooler are still under construction, but I will post pictures when the whole thing is finished. I'm really proud of it so far.

Just Simple

It took me a while to think about what my first written blog post would be. I've always heard of blogs, but never really understood their purpose. Some have significant identities like food, travel, photography or marriage/family life, and it really troubled me to figure out what to blog about to strike peoples interest. Everyone is unique in some way: some people have special hobbies, others have fashion obsessions (mine being shoes), but most just go through life in their own special way. That's what I want to blog about; my everyday random adventures I embark on, whether that's with friends, my boyfriend, or on my own. Hopefully someone will take notice and enjoy some of the quirky and normal parts of my life. But to put it simply, I just want to blog about my life full of daydreams and romance.
