Sad Day

Today was my last belly dancing class :( I'm kind of sad, but at i'm so glad I had the experience. It really helped me get out of my shell and feel more comfortable with my body and with dancing in public. My teacher is offering summer classes on the side for way cheap, so I think I'll continue and take those. I also had a performance today, we performed our choreography that we learned in small groups (2-4 people). I was kinda nervous, but i did pretty good i guess because i got 110/100! So yay me :) anyways, that class was so much fun, I can't wait for her summer classes. If anyone is interested in taking them with me, she said it will probably be on thursday nights and its 12 dollars. I'm unsure of the location, but its somewhere in the Salt Lake valley (she said she will email us when she has more details) :) So let me know!

Anyways, that's it for today, I have a ton of homework to do with finals coming up. Yay for this week being the final full week of school (not counting friday, since it's reading day) If you are taking finals, good luck, and if not, i hope you all have a fabulous week. I'll try to post something during the next few days, but i'll probably be busy until finals are over. Have a terrific tuesday!

City Creek and some Star Wars action

Oh hey, so last night Chauncey and I decided to check out City Creek. First we visited Megan at Chick-Fil-A and then we went  and wandered around. i wanted to go to this new store called Cotton On. They have a bunch of cute stuff for reasonable prices.. Then I found this adorable lace dress. It had straps instead of sleeves so I would have to wear a cardigan with it, but I was more than okay with that. So I tried it on. And it was BARELY too short. Then I thought we could look at F21. They have awesome prices, and cute clothes. Anyways, we were there and I found like 5 really really cute dresses. All of them were just barely too short. Except for the last one. It was ADORABLE, seriously, the cutest dress I've seen in so long, but it was a medium and too big on me (I'm usually a small, but I found the dress on a rack by the fitting rooms and thought I would try out the length) So I went to find a small, and I was so excited to find that they had 6 left. So I took one and tried it on.....It was STILL too big. What's up with that? It was as if there was no difference at all between the small and the medium. I was really sad. Anyways, to all the stores that have cute clothes, please make your dresses longer for those of us who can't wear short dresses. It would be much appreciated.

Second part of our date, we went to Star Wars Episode 1 (now mind you, i've never seen star wars, so Chauncey insisted we see it at the dollar theater.) It was in 3-D, i'm not a huge fan of 3-D movies, but I'm okay with seeing one every once in a while. Anyways, we saw it at 9:40. Big mistake, for some reason I was pretty tired last night, so I kept wanting to fall asleep during the movie. The movie wasn't boring...well some parts were, but it was mostly because i was tired. I did like the movie overall, but I wasn't disappointed that I hadn't seen the series before now, if you know what I mean. Anyways, Chauncey said I was getting it from a different angle than most people who saw Star Wars, because the first one was released after the 3rd, 4th, and 5th. (I think that was all of them) So everyone else saw the others before they saw the first one, so they were able to get more jokes that were put in the first one or something (like how the queen's handmaiden was actually the queen in the first one, i didn't know that until Chauncey told me). But yeah, it was okay, but i would be okay with not seeing it again. (No offense to you die hard Star Wars fans out there, it was a good movie, just not for me.)

Don't you just love date nights? I cannot wait for summer time, because there will be way more to do outdoors, but we also won't have school! Yay for the first summer without school while Chauncey and I have been together!! Thanks for reading, and I hope everyone has a superb Sunday :)

Something Awesome

So last night I was working, and something really awesome/random happened. This guy comes up to me and gives me five bucks. First, I'm like uhh....I can't take that. (Also because I was embarrassed that someone was tipping me for hostessing.) Then my manager just nodded, indicating I should take it. So the guy kept holding it out to me so I took it. He said it was for being a good sport or something (he was joking with me A LOT last night, i didn't mind, i thought it was entertaining.) So yeah, my first tip. It was pretty cool/random.

Another thing that happened this week that was awesome, I got a good grade on my spanish test! I usually do pretty bad on the in class tests because I get so nervous, but this time I took my time, I studied WAY harder than I ever have, and I wrote out some notes on the test sheet while they were fresh in my mind. I walked out after feeling as if I failed, but no I PASSED, with a decent grade no less. I was so excited :)

Something else that was awesome, I won another blog giveaway! This time it was at WindyCItyKnits. They make awesome scarfs and other knitted items. I won a skinny scarf, and i could choose the color out of 20 different colors. I was pretty excited :)

I chose the green (11)

So those are just the few awesome things that happened this week. Thanks for reading and have a fantastic friday!

Snake Braid

Oh hey, so I doubt you all know this, but I am OBSESSED with braids. I love love love learning new braiding techniques and doing my hair different (the girls i work with know this because it is rare that I go to work without a cute hairstyle, that usually involves braids.) Anyways, yesterday I learned this cool new braid called the snake braid. It is exactly what it sounds like, a french braid that goes around your head like a snake. So here is what it looks like:

So I'm thinking of doing a tutorial on how to do it, so that will come later on. Its really really easy, once you get the hang of it. It of course works awesome with someone without layers, but I do have layers, and look how amazing it looks! And that is without bobby pins. So next week I'll put a tutorial up. It is a super fun look and the best part is, it doesn't take hours to do!

dear hubby,
you've been sick a lot lately, it's making me sad :( i hope you start feeling better soon! I love you so much, thanks for being so awesome to me. also, i'm so proud of you for graduating this spring. you are such a great example to me and you constantly push me to be my very best. thank you for that. also, we need to take more pictures.

dear school,
i feel like i'm finally on top of my assignments, and its close to the end of the semester. oh well.

dear megan,
congrats on graduation from the BC this week! i'm so excited for you, and i'm really glad you are staying here for the summer.

dear readers,
thanks for coming and reading my blog. you guys rock. also, i don't know if you've ever heard of swagbucks, but my parents have been trying to get me to use it for forever. i promise, it's not a scam. i did a lot of research on it before i joined. it's just a way to get free stuff (amazon gift cards, itunes gift cards and tons more), by doing what you would normally do on the computer. so if you're interested go to swagbucks and check it out :)

dear springtime,
welcome to Utah! i am so excited to finally have you around, i've missed your warm spring breeze, and the warm rain. Winter was really starting to bog me down.

my lack of posts

oh hey all. sorry i didn't post on awkward and awesome Thursdays. i had some things to say but i was a little preoccupied. as school is coming to an end, I've really had to step it up. anyways, today kinda sucked, i haven't been feeling good. but it was also really awesome because i received my blog giveaway gift in the mail! a few weeks ago i entered a giveaway for INpink at Sydney's blog (go check it out, definitely one of my favorites.) anyways, I picked out these earrings:

aren't they gorgeous? I am going to wear them on Easter Sunday :] I can't wait. Chauncey loves dangly earrings, so I was excited to get these. I'm not a huge fan of yellow gold, but these will look great with so many different outfits, so I didn't mind. Anyways time for me to go, Chauncey will be back with dinner soon, and I still don't feel good. So i'll talk to you guys later :)
