Weekend Wrap-Up

Captured this brief period of excitement getting my picture taken (finally) with Roc the Panther!

To be honest, I could have done without this weekend. This one of those few weekends that just all together was not very good. I should have seen this coming when we went over to our friends’ apartment Friday night for a little get-together and it was actually pretty lame. I don’t know about you, but I feel that when I’m at what you’re selling as a party “I could totally be finishing up my paper rather than sit here and watch guys watch tv. Is this really what I dressed up for?” should not be part of my inner monologue. Fast forward to Saturday afternoon at Heinz Field for the Pitt v. Akron game. Going into this game I understood that we pretty much were guaranteed the win. Apparently our team felt that meant they could totally slack off and completely forget the basics of the game. It wasn’t a good sign when the first quarter ended and there was still no score. When I left half way through the third quarter (group projects ruin things, right?) the score was 10-14 Akron. Plenty of room for a comeback though. Buzzer sound. Oh how wrong! From what I understand we did the impossible and just got worse as the game wrapped up. In a nutshell, the Pitt Panthers lost to the Akron Zips 10-21. That just feels wrong and upsetting to say.

This feeling of disappointment segued into feelings of stress and periodic panic as I spent Saturday night and all of Sunday wrapping up my paper, finishing up this group presentation, reading 50+ pages for the same class I am delivering this presentation in and editing the pieces of my PR writing project ALL DUE TODAY!

I blame the football team for my lack of a good time this weekend.

Hopefully you had a better weekend than I did!

Finally done with the first week back in classes. Whew! Now I have not a nice little 5-day break on my hands. It’s nice when Friday’s class is cancelled, a holiday weekend and no Tuesday classes all happen in conjunction. I think this is the part where I throw in a little #blessed, right? I’m looking forward to this weekend’s festivities: tomorrow at noon is our first football game. Go Panthers!!

Have a wonderful weekend!

That Red, White and Blue

08b4b4390981e210f4e5b575632b4926

Tomorrow is Independence Day here in the USA which is a holiday I am always enthusiastic for! I always love spending a warm summer day with family outside with some great food and fireworks. Tomorrow’s color scheme is red, white and blue; from the decor to the clothing to the food! Here are a few bits of inspiration for this July 4th!

I Dream of COACH

Hello there everyone and a happy Monday to you all!

I hope your weekend was a nice and relaxing as mine was! The weather was wonderfully summer-y this weekend so we decided to spend Saturday afternoon in Gettysburg. I always love visiting and walking around to all of the interesting shops and souvenir stores; plus it’s not unusual to see someone dressed in period garb!

Anyway the reason for the trip was to initially buy my brother a shirt and tie for his senior photo, which he promptly threw a fit about. Who complains when someone buys them nice things?! My brother, that’s who. While all that was going down I decided to walk across the outlets to visit the COACH store. I like to pop in here to daydream for a bit because I know the only way I am going to get something is if I am desperately looking for a quick way to empty my bank account.

I dream of the Madison East/West tote in tan

Keep in mind I was never really a huge COACH fan. I was never a big bag person…always shoes for me! I was walking around and fell in love with what I was seeing. The colors were great and I was pretty much imagining each piece with a different outfit–this is the point you know I need to leave the store. Unfortunately sunglasses were standing between me and the exit. As you could probably guess, there is a pair that I absolutely fell in love with and that looked great on me! But you know…budget. #college!

And I dream of the Lindsay sunglasses which looked lovely on me!

I may have left empty handed, but technology exists and I have therefore continued the dreaming via coach.com.

Are you a COACH fan?
