With All the Bells and Ruffles...

{ Monday, February 15, 2010 }
Ah, the start of yet another hectic school week. I can do this, yes I can! After a dreary weekend full of snow and sludge, I was happy to escape the confines of my house for classes today. Odd, I know. The plans I had made months in advance to spend the day in Atlanta shopping the $1 sale at Rag-O-Rama in Little 5 Points didn't happen, thanks to Mother Nature's cruel, frigid hissy fit. However, my spirits were brightened a bit on Sunday when Leighton took me out for a Valentine's dinner...to Shane's Rib Shack. I know, just the name alone sounds like a heart attack waiting to happen, but I love the place. Plus, Leighton appreciated me going easy on his wallet this time!
After eating, we ventured over to the ever-wonderful Target, where I nabbed this high waisted, ruffled skirt that I've been coveting since I first saw it in October. The $4 price tag wasn't half bad, either!

V-neck sweater- Forever 21
Ruffle skirt- Target
Tights- Target
Scarf- Handmade
Motorcycle bag- Balenciaga lookalike -wink-

Luckily for me, my school day flew by in a whirlwind of returned tests, pop quizzes, and smiles. Why the smiles? The much-anticipated meeting with my English professor went surprisingly well; so well that I'm not required to write a second draft of my argumentative essay- I'm done! Such a heavy weight has been lifted off of my shoulders with this good news. Now I won't be up to my eyeballs in parenthetical documentations, bibliographies, and MLA citations, whew! My only current worries are finding a decent, compatible roommate for the fall at GCSU and getting fit for my Spring Break trip in a month. A month! I can hardly believe I'll be at the beach with my friends, wading in the ocean, in a month's time while the snow is still melting around town.

The Fratellis' Costello Music has been keeping me great company for the past week or so, and I'm undoubtedly a self-proclaimed fan. What I would give to see them live! My favorite song is "Whistle For The Choir," a soft ballad that contrasts the album's typically incessant, upbeat melodic tracks. Give it a listen, I love the soft strumming of the guitar.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week, stay warm! :)
