{why i'm happy.}

Reasons why I'm HAPPY today:

1. I finally handed in an eight page paper.

2. I am headed to the movies tonight with a friend.

3. Tomorrow is Friday. Which means the next day is the weekend!!

4. I finally convinced my twin sister to get a blog.

5. There just happened to be a sale at Boden yesterday, so I caved and bought the foxy sweater dress on my wish list.

{wishful wednesday.}

Even though the upcoming snowy winter may prohibit my everyday flat-
wearing feet, I adore these shoe clips. Especially in yellow!

I want to look foxy in this sweater dress....

I love this laptop bag.

Cute design? check. Long straps? check. Durable? check. The best part? They put slots in the back so it will slide onto suitcase handles...perfect for the airport! {Also..the designer? Project Runway Season 2 winner Chloe Dao!}

The most wishful thing on my wishlist that will.never.happen? The Canon 7D. Need I say more?

Ahhh, I girl can dream, right?

{busy tuesday.}

Today was busy!

I was up early for class-8:00 am! After that, I met up with my favorite teacher from high school. She moved to the city for a year, so she and her daughter came to visit me! We walked around the park and then I gave them a tour of my dorm. It was so nice seeing a familiar face. And seriously, how cute is she?!?
After they left, I wanted to go to Whole Foods, but once I looked outside, it was pouring. :( I'll go on Thursday!

I have three classes tomorrow. Busy day.

{rainy monday.}

Today the sky looked like this.....

{on the side of the road in Cork, Ireland}

Okay, so not that bad. And yes, that is Ireland. BUT it was still a pretty miserable day (weather-wise). Also, the heat broke in one of our buildings and by the end of my marketing class, I thought I was going to die of a heat stroke.

Even after all of that, I had a very productive day. Rainy days are perfect for getting things done. My favorite teacher from high school is visiting me tomorrow (along with her adorable daughter), so I cleaned my entire suite. I vacuumed the floor, scrubbed the bathroom, and did all of my laundry. Everything smells so clean....I love it! I'm so glad I got all of that done because now I don't have to worry about it the rest of the week.

Now if only I got my Communications paper done...

{brown vs. harvard.}


I had such a fun time in Providence! It was such a perfect night for a football game and time with friends.

{Look at the sky!}

After the game, my friend and I walked around Thayer Street. We went to a delicious mexican place and then went to an old-school movie theatre.

{Thayer Street}
I can't wait to go back!

I am so happy the weekend is here! I have done absolutely nothing tonight. :) Just ate raspberry sorbet (yummmm) and watched Will & Grace.

I'm so excited for tomorrow! I am headed to Providence for the Harvard/Brown football game! I do not attend either school, so technically I don't really care who wins. I have close friends who go to both schools, but I will be wearing a Brown shirt tomorrow. My college is in a city and has no major sports teams, so this will be my first college football game!

The weather should be beautiful, too. The northeast isn't getting the memo that fall is here. I'm ready for chunky sweaters, leaves changing color, and warm apple cider. Another reason fall needs to get here asap? I can't wait to wear my new Anthropologie jacket. {it was a a bit of a splurge, but soooo worth it! :) }


Happy weekend!

{monday fun-day? not.}


Today was not a good day. :( So many annoying little things kept happening. I'm glad it's almost over. The silver lining? Finishing my homework, "Gossip Girl" & "House."

Until tomorrow...

{what i'm loving today.}

I love Sundays. This morning on the agenda: wrapping a birthday present! And where is the best place for supplies? Why, Paper Source, of course! If you have never been to Paper Source, drop what you're doing and go now. I went there to buy one thing, and ended up browsing for a half hour and spending way too much money. :)

Check out this fabulous wrapping paper and wrapping job, done by yours truly...

I think the outside should look just as pretty as the inside.

I'm also loving my new wall decals. They really make a difference in my {boring} dorm room. I wish I could paint my walls! Birds & Frames.

And last, but not new shoes! I love DSW.

Have a lovely Sunday!

{oh, hello there.}

I miss blogging. Even though I had a total of 3 posts :) . I read so many blogs...but I want to start writing again. And maybe get more readers.

I transferred colleges, and am SO.MUCH.HAPPIER. I even have a kitchen! This fact means that I will be blogging about easy gluten-free recipes.

I want to try and blog everyday. To make it easier, I'm thinking of doing "Thankful on Thursday" posts, or "Wordless Wednesday." I always like when bloggers do that.

Let's see how well this {continual blogging} goes!

{o is for oatmeal cookies.}

Oatmeal cookies, I have missed you so.

Ever since I was diagnosed with Celiac, I have missed oatmeal cookies big time. After some research, I decided to take the plunge and attempt baking Bob's Red Mill Oatmeal Cookies. And they didn't disappoint. They are so good!! My suite-mates even liked them! (and they don't even need to eat gluten-free!). I decided to save some of the batter and freeze it too. That way, whenever I was in the mood, I could bake them!

Here is the recipe, courtesey of Bobs Red Mill.

Don't they look delicious?
