- I love scrapbooking.
- I'm addicted to paper collecting and paper piecing, so each sheet of paper goes a long way.
- I play volleyball. I'm 6'2 and hate running, so it was the natural choice.
- My favorite color is grey, but I love to pair it with super bright colors. I also love bright colors on white. However, I don't like the color red, (I am fine with burgundy and oxblood and pink)
- I can play 3 instruments: piano, french horn and alto saxophone. Those are ordered according to how much I like them.
- I love reading. I never got to the point where I would read and walk at the same time, but I would always have a book in my bag.

Time for another one!
I kind of absolutely love this sweater, it's even in cashmere! It looks so cozy and so absolutely perfect to study in. But with a price tag of $686.00 it just isn't ever going to happen. Someone teach me to knit or something? (Sweater)
I found this little gem of a set of washi tape on Etsy a while back and I think it's just so cute!
I really like teapots, and the color blue, and circles and color on a white background. So this teapot (from Crate&Barrel) is right up my alley! However, I seem to have expensive taste, $260 for a teapot is... crazy?
Wine ice cream (from here), looks like a must try! When I go out with friends, I'll take a glass of wine over a "vodka slime" any day. Keeping things classy. But this would also be the absolute perfect ice cream for break up days... (my fingers are crossed that it is never needed and this ice cream will only be used for anniversary days instead)
My boyfriend likes to tease me about my Fossil purse collection (I have 3), but his mom and I like to bond over our love of Fossil/Coach purses. So since I need a new wallet anyway, why not just bug him a little more and get my next wallet from Fossil?

I've had a crazy two weeks with assignments and midterms and things just aren't slowing down. However, I got to the point where I really needed a break from school work, so I sat down for 5 hours straight and made this page happen.
We just had a huge, and I mean HUGE dump of snow, causing highways to shut down, hospitals to go on code Orange (expecting major fatalities) and snow so high I can't see out of my window. So all I really want is to be able to sit on a beach again.

So I thought I would condense a few recent pictures into one post and get a whole bunch of things out of the way all at once. Seeing as University is coming up into crunch time, I wont have any free space to schedule blog posts. I wish I could have enough time to write a WHOLE bunch of them and put them in a queue just like I can in tumblr... but NO TIME! So it looks like there will be no posting again for a long time after this one.
First up! The creative-type endeavors.
I've kind of been in a pink-coral creative zone lately, I just LOVE that color. But, moving on, clockwise order!
Top Left: I made some AMAZING cookies over my reading week. The recipes keep piling up on my pinterest board and I finally decided to try one. These are the Orange Creamsicle cookies (found here ) and I highly HIGHLY recommend them.
Top Right: I just went to this scrapbook store in my area that i recently found out about to pick up a bunch of new CHA goodies. This is a new page in progress (it's actually pretty much completed now, I just haven't updated the picture) The photos I used won't be on the page when I upload it in its entirety because they're from a modelling shoot I did for a swimsuit company. And uploading that would just be weird.
Bottom Right: At the restaurant I work at, we always have puppy and kitten notepads to write our orders on. The girls and I have taken to modifying the kittens and making them more distinguished.
Bottom Left: It was just my mom's birthday! Happy birthday mom!
I'm taking an invertebrate zoology course this semester, even though I think most invertebrates are creepy and I definitely prefer vertebrates. But there are always some cool ones to look at. These pictures are from the day that my lab was looking at the Molluscs (these are the Gastropods or snails/slugs shells)
Top Left: I think this may be my favorite shell ever. You can't really see from the picture, but the shell is completely covered in what we call nacre (the pearlescent covering you see on the insides of some shells) with kind of a frosty covering over-top. (it looks kind of like this picture which is the same species, Bathybembix argenteonitens)
Top Right: (Family Architectonicidae, species unknown)
Bottom Right: (Nucella lamellosa)
Bottom Left: (Siratus alabaster)
More random invertebrate lab pictures, but this time from the live tank!
Left: Mussel shell (another example of the nacre, shiny layer)
Top Right: A nice little snail trying to escape after the snail race!
Bottom Right: a really lazy starfish.
Hopefully I'll actually have more cool things to post sometime, but that's all for now!
