Random Catch-Up Post #1

1.  I tested out my car's gas gauge. (<-- Is that even right?  Oh well, the thing that says how much gas you have.)  For you concerned people, yes- I made it to the gas station.

2.  We tried to Pay-Per-View the first Razorback game.  It didn't work.  We listened on the radio and ate these cupcakes with red and white sprinkles and of course- pig cupcake liners!

3.  I finally have a car with a Razorback on it.  I am glad.  It is even better because I bought it in Fayetteville!
4.  I did my very first solo site visit and public meeting for work in Jonesboro.  Nothing catastrophic (also, apparently today I am in the mood to use words that I don't know how to spell?!?!) happened.

5.  At said site visit and public meeting, I wore these two pairs of shoes.  Obviously one pair at the site visit and the other pair at the meeting.  Only an engineer....

6.   I discovered Nutella.  I also really needed to go to the grocery store, so I had some very strange meals.  This particular one was a tortilla with Nutella, and some pickles.

7.  I went to the second Razorback game, which was in Little Rock.  This was my first time to wear a white shirt to a Razorback game.  (For some reason, I can't get this photo to be in the center.  Oh well, and please excuse the disgusting mirror used to take this picture...)

8.  Since the game was on September 10, we attempted a patriotic look in honor of September 11th.  It turned out to actually work and looked pretty neat.  This is a picture of the band, but it shows the fans.

9.  My friends Ashley and Andrea turned 30!  This is me and Ashley at dinner at YaYa's.  She looks cute, I do not.
10.  I hosted a baby shower with Lydia for our friend Lyndsey.  But since I already have 10 ramblings, I will save the baby shower for its own post!  Time for bed!

Y'all.  This past week has worn me out.   I have a lot to say, but can barely talk in coherent sentences.  Update to come soon.  And in the shower today- I almost washed my hair with body wash.  Body wash is green, shampoo is pink.  Not that hard to tell a difference- most days.....

First. Finest. Forever.

I am a pro at blogging about things way after they happen.  Oh well, better late than never, right?

Sometime a couple of weeks ago in August... I went to Fayetteville for the weekend.  On Friday night, I got to see my friend Lyndsey.  Here we are getting some frozen yogurt.  They had an orange flavor that reminded me of the Flinstones push-up pops when I was a kid.

I stayed with my brother in his apartment that looks every bit like you would expect a 21 year old college boy's apartment to look.  Here we are in my grainy iPhone photo...

That Saturday I had to take my car to the shop for the second time in its short 3 month life.  It was making some weird noises after the drive to Fayetteville, but they couldn't find anything wrong with it, and it hasn't done it again.  Oh well, it is just a mystery I guess.

Saturday night, I went out to dinner with some of the other alums of my sorority that live in the area.  This is me and Laura.  Also a grainy iPhone pic, since apparently that is the only camera I have.

Sunday was bid day for the sororities at the University of Arkansas.  This is the main reason I went up there.  It was a fun trip down memory lane, and I got to see a bunch of girls from when I was in college. 

Our bid day sign:

Diamonds with Andrea for old times' sake:

And of course- a picture with the new letters, where I apparently missed the hand on the hip memo:

And I got to see two of the girls that go to my church in Little Rock that are now ADPi's at Fayetteville:

The bid day shirts:

jasmere deal!

If you have read my blog or known me for a while, you probably have heard me talk about jasmere before.  I love jasmere!  It is a shopping site that has a new deal every day, and the cool thing is that the more buyers there are, the lower the price goes.  Everyone pays the same price at the end of the feature.  I love it when I buy something and I check back and the price has dropped a couple of dollars.  Anyway, until September 17th, if you see something you like on jasmere, use this code to get an extra 20% off:


It is good once per person and good until 9/17/11.  Everything on jasmere is already a great deal, and then an extra 20% is awesome!  I really love this site and I hope you do too!  I have bought many items from jasmere, such as a bras, stationary, candy, speakers, photo canvases, etc.  It is a neat way to find out about companies that you normally wouldn't come across.  Most of the companies are smaller and have unique products.  And everything that they sell is personally tested by the jasmere employees, who by the way have AMAZING customer service.

Leave a comment if you have any questions!  Happy shopping!!
