back again...

Why hello there, blog world! Long time no see, right? I know, I know, it's my own fault for being such a bad blogger over my break. But guess what! My New Year's (or new school year, rather, it's a bit past the new year) resolution, is to spend at least 30 minutes a day on my blog - I may do other posts rather than outfit posts if I don't have them, but I really want to get back to being a one-post-a-day sort of blog. Before beginning, let me thank the lovely Jenny for putting up a post for me while I was gone! As much faith as she had in my clothes over the trip, I really am not the best at rocking the apres-ski look. Generally I just look tired and run-down. Which I still kind of am! The long days of skiing coupled with the horrible hotel beds (mostly just the flat pillows) made me quite a tired girl. So now I have a bit of a cold, which I will have to get over while back at college!

 kirkland sweater - stolen from my dad (Costco makes men's cashmere sweaters? ohhhh yes they do ^^)
gap jeans
nordstrom boots (and I finally checked the brand - Star Ling)
forlove21 necklace

Midway through the photo-session in the stairs; it was getting a bit rapid-fire and I got stressed.... :)

So, as I am typing this, I keep having to hit the backspace key to fix all my mistakes since my fingers are turning purple and hitting the wrong keys. Why are they purple you ask? Because our heat STILL doesn't work. When I got back last night and checked it, miracle of miracles, warm air was coming out! But that didn't last long, and now it is beyond freezing as always. Most definitely calling maintenance soon.

So today was my first day back at school! Actually not too bad, despite the fact that for the first time in my college career I had a class before 9:00, and had to be out the door for an 8:50... then go to another class in a building off-campus right after... then go to another class in a building back on-campus after that... but then I was done! And at 12:05 no less! So I grabbed lunch then headed off to the bookstore to pick up all my new textbooks. And proceed to leave my wallet there. Smart, aren't I? Thankfully, I ran back and they had it behind the counter. I suppose that if I had to lose my wallet someplace, a store was probably the best place to do it. They made me show ID to match it with my driver's license in the wallet to make sure it was actually mine!

In other news, my parents are in Sweden! Well actually, they are probably in Amsterdam right now, if they've landed that is. My dad has some business there and my mom is joining him to see the sights. I wish I was in Sweden! Thankfully they are making it there though, their original flight was canceled due to all the snow on the East Coast recently! But now they are safely on their way and we may do some skyping later on. Had to teach my dad how to use it last week, but such is life.... :)

Now it is nearing midnight and I must go to bed! In an effort to not kill our breakfast tradition, Nicole and I are continuing to go to Leo's together in the mornings despite the earlier hour. And we all know how I do on little amounts of sleep! So, bonne nuit!
