Oh Hey, 2013

Happy New Year! My friends and I had a New Year's Eve party and it was a blast! New Year's Day was spent making breakfast with two of my best friends, giggling at the pictures from the night before, watching a Hitchcock film, watching Lord of the Rings with Rifftrax, trying a new mexican restaurant, and literally laughing hysterically all day because my friends are so hilarious. It was a great first day of the year. :)

Since it's the new year, it's time to whip my butt into shape in regards to the whole grad school thing. I'm going to have to start really looking at what each program offers and when the deadlines are. I'm planning on doing some of this tonight.

[This is how we make bacon. It was maple flavored. It was not good.]

Chris and I are going to Boston this weekend with one of his friends. We're going to visit his friends that he lived with in college. I'm excited to be able to use my new camera in the city! I'm hoping to get some cool shots. I keep wondering what I should wear since I know it's going to be cold and we're going to be walking around. I don't want to just wear jeans and a sweater, but I also don't want to freeze my butt off. I'll have to figure something out! One day I will get away from the winter... One day!


  1. I really really want to visit Boston soon. I can't wait to see photos! And your new year's party sounds fun. Your dress is so cute and I love it with that blazer.

  3. that sounds like the *perfect* first day of the year! and i love what you wore- that gold dress is so pretty! and taking pictures of the city is one of my favorite past-times, it's so much fun and lets you get creative. as for what to wear that aren't jeans...I live in Chicago which is brutally cold right now, and when I want to wear dresses I wear two knit tights over each other (usually in gray or black). They look like normal tights, but are just as warm as pants. Target and TJ Maxx or Marshalls have super cheap pairs!

    1. Thanks for the advice! I always forget that you can layer tights. Is it really difficult to get the second pair on over the first one? It seems like they might get bunchy. I'm a fan of Target and TJ Maxx. I decided on wearing a pair of cozy sweater leggings for today's adventures. It worked out pretty well! :)

  4. Looks so fun! Your dress is super cute. Have fun in Boston, i adore that city.
