The start of Summer 2013

Happy Monday everyone! My apologies for the short blogging hiatus.  I have been quite busy the past week and a half.  For those of you who follow me via instagram have already had a glimpse at my life lately. Rather than writing all about where I have been I thought it would be better to just do so through pictures and short explanations.  

 Well, I moved out a week and a half ago, when we had reading day.  But since I hadn't taken my finals yet, unpacking had to take the back burner to studying.  This drove me crazy, getting dressed was awful because I couldn't find anything.  At one point, my room was so messy that I couldn't even see the floor!
 Last Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday I spent my days studying for my exam Thursday.
 And I also spent that time working on my education "create a school" final project.  My school was Finding Nemo themed and located at the beach. Two of my favorite things. I guess you could say I was ready for Summer break, when I was doing this. 
I definitely enjoyed being able to study for finals week at home because I got to enjoy my mom's wonderful cooking. One day last week she made lemon chicken and spinach with angel hair pasta. It was to yummy!

On Thursday, I drove back down to school for the very last time.  I took my final exam, presented my education project, and said good bye to my friends. Since I moved out the week before, my room was so empty and depressing.  It made me a little sad leaving 307, jHg and I had some great times in there over the course of the past year. 

 Friday started my Summer Break 2013

What better way to start of summer break than to see The Great Gatsby. tDn and I had a date day- the movies and sushi! The movie was great! I was afraid that it was going to be different from the book or original movie.  The movie was just a bigger and more modern version of the original film. I highly recommend going to see it for those of you who haven't yet.

Saturday was bff day! mIr and I got ice cream and did some shopping at the mall. I finally found an adorable maxi dress at Forever 21! This isn't a great picture, but this gives you an idea of what it looks like.

Sunday- Happy Mother's Day to my mom! We started off the day by making her brunch and showering her with her gifts.  We had fruitinis and waffles. The fruitini was a mix of grapes, strawberries, bananas, kiwis, and blood oranges in a lemon and powdered sugar coating.  They were delish and went perfectly with the waffles!

These were two of the three gifts we gave her.  The third one was an orange monogrammed tervis tumbler. She was in need of a beach tote, so when I ordered mine I got her a matching one too.  Her third gift was a Lilly Pulitzer ipad sleeve. (Can you tell I was in charge of getting her gifts this year)

We ended the day with a nice dinner. Yes, I can actually cook! My sQt and I worked together to cook shrimp in a red pepper cream sauce over pasta.  We also had Italian bread and salad with it.  Dinner was delicious. I was pleasantly surprised by this because anyone who knows me knows that my track record in the kitchen is not a good one. But maybe I have outgrown my poor cooking skills?

In my free time this weekend, I managed to finish unpacking and organize my closet.  I can finally find all of my clothes and my floor now!  

I'm off to the treadmill now.
