new computer!

For my birthday, I asked for gift cards to Apple so that I might one day be able to replace that wheezing, puffing, dying excuse for a computer that I call Pierre the Dell. Pierre the Dell has been giving me problems since about 6 months after I purchased him. The last straw was when about a month ago he took 35-- 35!!! minutes to start up. So, with a fair amount in gift cards from my incredibly generous and loving parents and sisters, as well as with the money I am making at my glamorous job (read: a dining hall on campus), I went out and purchased a snazzy new MacBook Pro!

It FINALLY came in on Friday, and my excuse for not blogging all weekend is because of football and this new device that I can't quiiiite get over.

But I've finally got her up and running (shall I name her?), and so it is back to the blogging world with me! Satirical Sundays weren't as big a hit as I had hoped, so I've been brainstorming other weeklies that I am planning to test drive.

Happy birthday to meeee

All of ya'll who think you have the best boyfriend in the world? Sorry, but you were too late! I've got him and he's mine all mine (c:

looooooky at what Mr. Ian gave me for my birthday!!!

I was SO excited- he completely surprised me. I really wanted one, but how often in life does that actually translate to one getting something?

Here's its fantabulous case:

How cute will that be at football games?

I will absolutely write about what I got from my family in another post because this one would be far too fabulous for its own good if I included that!

Now I am off to go play with my new technology...perhaps I will even blog from it!

Prep For Fall Swap Goodies!

Thank you so much, Kathie at My Preppy Purse!! The Prep for Fall swap hosted by Hopsy was so much fun, and I got a ton of great stuff from Kathie. She sent me all of these super cute things that had me giggling with excitement when I opened up this pandora's box of prep!

Ladies, would you just LOOK at all of this fabulous stuff? My favorite is in the upper left hand corner- it's a mini file holder, and it has labels for things like "gift cards", "receipts", "to-do lists", and "coupons"-- all of the stuff that I never have anywhere to put! I LOVE this thing and it's put to use all the time.

I also adore the koozie- on the bottom it says, "I did it!" and Kathie sent it to me for when I graduate in December... this woman is so thoughtful, I tell you! It is so nice getting to know her! I'm already using everything else and it all just brightens my day every time.

Thanks again, Kathie, and thank you, Hopsy, for hosting such a great swap!

I. Love. Football. Season!!!!

"I don't know what a Hokie is, but God is one of them"- Lee Corso

I've spent most of my day so far reading tailgate fever, watching Virginia Tech Football highlights:

and listening to Stick It In (after 50 seconds it's lame):

Tech Triumph,

and Enter Sandman. In case you need to be fired up, you might want to watch this video:

If you can feel your heart beating in time with that entrance, my work here is done.
And Jim Weaver, you remind me of Dolores Umbridge...She's a Killer Of All Fun, too!
