Lifes a changing
I hope y'all are having wonderful Wednesdays. I went to breakfast this morning with a few friends from high school which was lovely. Both of the girls are going to state schools in the area and are leaving in just one week for college! It really got me thinking about college and how I only have TWO more weeks left! I cannot believe the summer flew by so quickly. I am definitely starting to get a bit anxious yet very very excited. I know college will be a life changing wonderful experience and that life is really just beginning. It definitely is a bit scary though!
I have pretty much everything for my dorm room. Did I tell y'all that my roomie and I are having no other than a pink and green color scheme! I'm sure it will look darling. I cannot wait to see everything set up. Thank you Summer Wind for your wonderful hints about what to buy for college. They were all very helpful!
After careful contemplation, I have decided to just get a backpack for class. My dorm is up on top of a hill so not very centrally located. I was set on getting either a new Vera tote (the new prints are divine) or a LL Bean tote but have decided to do otherwise since I will have to carry my laptop, books and other necessary items up and down the hill and to class everyday. I am going for the classic LL Bean book bag in navy with my monogram. It will be sturdy and efficient and serve as a perfect carryall. Do you college girls use totes or backpacks?
Oh and I forgot to tell y'all where I will be this weekend! My friends and I are going to Lollapalooza! I am so terribly excited. For anyone who does not know what Lollapalooza is, it is a big concert held in Grant Park here in Chicago with about 100 or so bands. There are different stages and you can just walk around and go to the various shows. It is a 3 day event and the girls and I will be going all 3 days. Since we don't live in the city, we are staying at my aunt's second home in the city that overlooks the park. I am just so excited! It will be my first big concert and I will be able to see many of my favorites. My favorite band, Vampire Weekend (total dreamboats!) will be there as will Fleet Foxes another one of my favorites.
I won't be posting over the weekend but will try to maybe do a quick post tomorrow after work. Oh yes and I was thinking about doing a question and answer post next week to answer a few questions, do y'all have anymore questions you would like me to answer? I hope y'all have a fantastic rest of the week!
PS: Prissy Southern Prep, may I have an invite to your blog? And congratulation BLC, what an exciting time for you!
