So I lied.

I know I said that since I was on school break, I would post more. Obviously that did not happen! Break consisted of me working still at my student job and then Erich and I went on vacation. Then I started school again the day after we got back. So there really wasn't a whole lot of time to be blogging in between then and now.

I'm currently pretty overwhelmed with my classes (umm 3 accounting classes and an online math class!), but as soon as I feel caught up and on top of those classes, I'll get some posts going. I'm trying to work on making more of my time which is proving to be difficult since I feel like I can't concentrate for more than 10 minutes! Ughhh, I swear I'm getting adult onset ADD or something! The internet doesn't help either. It's all "hey come check out this page" or "you should probably google that question you had that doesn't even matter". Seriously, I feel like I should some block all fun pages at my work desk so I can actually study/read here.

Anyways, like I said, I'll post more when I feel like I'm not drowning in accounting terms :)

please check back when my brain is functioning more

Like the title says, my brain isn't functioning at the optimal level. Why is that? Oh because I've got finals next week and I'm trying to get everything done and study for those. Add in the fact that I'm exhausted ALL the time. That equals a mushy brain. Oh and I've almost stopped drinking coffee. I was up to 3 caffeinated beverages A DAY just to function so I decided to nix that addiction in the bud! Don't get me wrong, i'll still enjoy a sip of Erich's latte or make myself a frappuccino (very little caffeine in them) every once in a while; but overall, i'm doing pretty good at this no coffee thing. Other than the headaches. Oh the headaches!!! Those first couple of days were horrible.

With all that said, check back more towards Christmas since I'll be done with classes and my student job at the school is out until early January! I'll have some updated posts like all my Portland adventures and OOTD.

Thanks for hangin' in there with me,

Hugs and Luvs,

Random Ramblings

Hey so its been over a week since my epic post about Survivor. I'm sure you are all sitting anxiously at the edges of your seats waiting for my next post! Since I don't have any funny stories or real exciting things going on in my neighborhood, you are getting some random ramblings with some maybe pictures thrown in.

* so I spent like 30 minutes yesterday creating our wedding website. When I went to look at it, I realized nothing saved. *insert eye roll* so now I have to re-write everything. LAME!

* Umm so I'm the best toy picker outer ever. Erich always thinks Bella won't play with the toy I buy her and then its her favorite! See below for example:

This is her hedgehog that she carries around with her EVERYWHERE!!! 
She even wants to take it out side when she goes potty.

* We had a winter storm last week here in good ole' Fairbanks. Our power was out for 3 days. Nothing like heating your house with your propane stove/oven! I am thankful that it allowed me to catch up on sleep since classes and work were cancelled. This was our house Thursday night:

* So I submitted a Instagram picture for #liylookoftheday. I didn't win *sad face*. But I suppose I will continue to read Living in Yellow even though she didn't choose me. Here was my picture I submitted: 
I think I look adorable!
Shirt: Value Village
Jeans: H&M
Shoes: Fred Meyer
Necklace: Jewelmint
Watch: Target

* Went and saw Hunger Games: Catching Fire last night....and it was awesome!!! Amazing casting and so close to the book. Cannot wait another 2 years for the next one!!!

* I woke up at 8:30 today (thank the lord baby jesus) and did a mad dash cleaning before I had to go to work since Erich's brother is coming into town and everyone is coming over to our house tonight. Hope they're okay with eating pizza or cereal because this lady doesn't feel up to cooking today!

and thats about it as I need to head to my last class for the week!

What I am currently doing

So it is a Wednesday night and in my book, that means watching Survivor. Can we just talk about how crazy it is that EVERYONE is burning the immunity idol clues this season?!?! I don't think that has happened ever in the history of Survivor! Okay end survivor rant :) and I'm nomming on some of this:
Unfortunately, that is not really my ice cream (correct flavor obvs) as mine is in just a bowl. So disappointing! Speaking of ice cream cones, I was changing in my car (yes I change in my car between jobs/school) the other day and was putting on a different pair of shoes and found part of an ice cream cone on my floor. Ummmm I can't tell you the last time I ate an ice cream cone, let alone in my car. File that one under: you need to clean your car more than once every 5 years. At least I know if I ever get stranded, I could probably survive for a bit of the food crumbs I find in my car.

Today consisted of my coffee job in the morning where today we watched twerking videos...unlike yesterday when we watched cat videos. Apparently people don't want hot coffee when its 20 degrees out?!?! But seriously, who doesn't want hot beverages when its that cold? I feel like I can't trust a person if a hot chocolate doesn't sound delish at these temperatures!

Then I went to class, then to my second job where I had to do a 4 hour training class. Except, apparently I was never given the form to submit so I could get the required information for said class. Oh well, I'm just glad I was able to eat lunch instead of sitting in a computer lab where no food was allowed.

After job numero dos, I went to my night class, where we play these business "simulations". I'm going to be real honest here, simulations = computer games. It's pretty sweet except I am apparently not very good at business computer games. Who would have known?

Maybe I'll use my last ounce of productivity to do some homework. Nahhhhh who am I kidding? I'm tapped out for the night. I'm going to go be horizontal on the couch until I go to sleep, which just happens to be 2 seconds after Survivor is over.

Hugs and Luvs,

While the boss is away, this girl shall play..

Well, my boss is at an all day conference so I've got some time where I can sit down and write a little bit. Oh don't you worry though, there will still be pictures of an outfit!!!

So since I didn't elaborate a whole lot on my last post about life at all, I'll give a little info about what is going on. When I first got back to Fairbanks, I had a hard time finding a job (again!). I worked as a temp for my old position while the girl I hired was away on vacation. They were going to fire her and hire me back, but that never panned out. So I went searching for a job with tips. Well I finally got hired at a coffee hut in town and absolutely love it and the girls I work with. Right before I accepted the coffee hut position, I applied to about 5 jobs at UAF. Well I got two offers and accepted one. I felt bad to ditch out on the coffee hut position and I truly like that job way more than my student job. The student job does allow me flexibility and I can do my homework if there is nothing to do; but overall, I'm somebodies bitch and I'm not diggin' it. So now I'm stuck with two jobs!

Can I please revert back to when I was 20 and could do this whole school and two jobs things without blinking an eye?!?! I'm pretty much a walking zombie these days. Thank god for free coffee at the hut!!! I hardly have time to eat anything anymore. I'm really trying to balance everything out and I just hope I don't sink. Something will have to give at some point so I can keep my sanity (and so I don't have to eat pizza every night or wear dirty clothes to school/work)!!

So that's pretty much my life right now. Work and school. It's really exciting around these parts :) We did just throw a Halloween party last weekend, which was fun, but just added more stress to my life. Thank god for Chrystal for coming over early and helping me cook!!!

Here is Erich and I from the party (obvs Wayne & Garth)

And now onto outfit of the day pictures! (current outfit)

Shirt: Express (I'm actually wearing it backwards so I'm not showing cleave)
Jeans: Old Navy
Shoes: Shoedazzle (so amazing, but a little high for every day wearing)

And that's about it for right now! I'm off to get some homework done while I can :)

Hugs and Luvs,

because I don't have time for anything with words:

here are just some pictures so nobody feels like I'm neglecting this place (I'm totally pointing fingers at myself here)! Let's face it, with two part time jobs and 15 credits at school, I have very little free time. and with that free time, I like to eat and sleep. Priorities people!!!

At job #2 trying to look put together, but feeling lazy:

Boots: ShoeDazzle (I believe)
Leggings: Old Navy
Socks: unsure
Shirt: I think Old Navy
Cardi: Old Navy
Scarf: sister

At job #1. Pretty dang put together for waking up at 3:30 AM and only running on 4 hours of sleep. Instagram helps hide the bags under my eyes :)
Shirt: Windsor
Necklace: Forever21
Earrings: unsure (cheap CZ)

This is today's outfit. Went to both jobs and school!

 Shoes: Forever21
Jeans: Old Navy
Sweater: Sears (I think)
Watch: Gift, but I believe Target

And that's about it for today! Hopefully I'll get some time to actually write, instead of trying to distract you with the lack of words with pretty (not really) Iphone pictures!

Outfit of the day (OOTD)

Lookie here! I'm back (like I promised)! I'm here to just post an OOTD...and I'm posting two outfits. So its like you are getting a two for one deal and lets be honest, everyone loves a two for one deal. I'll try to list where I've got the items, but at this point, I will not be doing links for items. And ignore the crappy cell phone pictures. I'm trying to find a place in my house where I can take pictures (with my real camera) without a fish tank in the background (I wish I were kidding about the fish tanks!).


Shoes: I think Shoedazzle
Leggings: Old Navy
Button up: Old Navy (recent)
Tank top: Nordstroms
Scarf: gift


Shoes: Forever21
Jeans: H&M
Long Sleeve: H&M
Fur Vest: TJ Maxx

and that's about it for today! I will leave you with this amazing picture I took on the trails where I walk Bella. These trails are literally across the street from us and are over 190 acres! Unfortunately, the person that owns the land has either sold it (or part of it) for someone to subsidize or are doing it themselves. Super bummed about it! I'm just hoping they plan on keeping some of the land so that we can continue to walk these trails.

Over and Out,
