a new record!

it's my second post in one day! haha. i thought the other one should be by itself and i wanted to just chat the chit with everyone, as logun would say.

yesterday was an awesome day for SO many reasons...

1. a rep [someone that comes and tells us about a product to use in interior design applications...example: knoll furniture or maharam fabrics] brought us starbucks...a total guilty pleasure of mine that i've told myself i'm not allowed to drink anymore [well...i'm not buying it anymore, people are more than welcome to buy it for me!]
2. i found out that a conversation i overheard at work had nothing to do with me and in fact had to do with another ID girl moving to the KC office. whew...i was worried was doing a shit job or something.
3. i got home from work and my AWESOME new phone was there!! i also got my visa [if you rent a place in wichita, it's the best thing to find a place on there, tell your landlord you found them on there and you get a $100 visa gift card! you can use it ANYWHERE!]
4. jules and i went shopping at target and i got to USE my new visa gift card.
5. we also went to the seamstress to get our pants hemmed. i'd never done that before, kind of fun to stand like you are a princess in front of a mirror.
6. then we took the dogs to the dog park and played fetch for a long time, long enough to wear my two out anyway!

it's always the simple things in life that make you happy.


1. catie 2. sushi 3. goddard high school
4. red 5. josh duhamel 6. diet cherry
vanilla dr. pepper 7. bali 8. creme brule

speaking 12. c squared

sweet summer...

alyssa tagged me with a good one!
here is the tag: list 7 songs you are into right now. no matter what genre, whether they have words, or even if they are not any good, but they must be songs you are really into right now, shaping your summer. post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they're listening to.

1. so long sweet summer - dashboard confessional [i just love that song, so it would have made it anyway...]

and i mean COME ON. yum. i can't resist a man with tatoos.

2. bleeding love - leona lewis [i agree alyssa, this song was a good one, but DWTS made it great!]

[see alyssa's blog for the video. i'm too lazy to post it.]

3. small town kid - eli young band [i'm new to this band, thanks to pandora. since i just moved back close to home, this one made the list.]

this is my high school's track/football/soccer field. lots of great memories!

4. fighting for - cross canadian ragweed [you all KNEW that ragweed was going to make my list and this is my all time fav.]

my awesome picture from the concert i went to in jan. in lawrence. i really was that close!

5. 17 - cross canadian ragweed [again, i love them. the lyrics "you're always 17 in your hometown." are SOO true and i realize that more that i'm back.]

from my VIP seat at stampede last year. thanks mags/ty!

and i'll throw in a high school grad pic just for fun.

6. all summer long - kid rock [normally i'm not a fan, especially because he's a cross over country artist. but this is the style of music i like best...southern rock/red dirt.]

this one reminds me of the lake, so a good shot of some kiddos.

7. guy like me - pat green [LOVE him! i'm still mad that kyle and i didn't go to the concert in lawrence in jan....but to be fair, we were practically in a blizzard.]

this song reminds me of kyle. so here's one of us! at my 20th birthday party.

i tag...leah, megan and junnae. because no one else reads my blog and alyssa's already done it!

i finally have internet at my new place!

now i don't have to feel paranoid when i'm updating at work. i always waited until my lunch break, but still, i always felt bad when i was doing that.

i'm working on getting some pictures of my new place but i still have a lot of stuff in boxes.

i guess i should work harder!

let's settle down now...

so! i thought it was about time for an update now that i'm "settling in" here in wichita. although, i would quite say that i'm settled yet. i have a huge amount of laundry to do [that's on the list] and i haven't really done anything at work [as you can probably tell, i'm at work right now.] my to do list is about a mile long. here's just a portion of it!

go to the bank so i can pay rent
order some new checks
finish paperwork for work
consolidate my student loans
organize my apartment [note that i have no pictures up yet...that's why]
recycle my moving boxes [or give them to someone, does anyone need any?]
do laundry
go grocery shoppping
go WORK CLOTHES shopping
set up my cable and internet
get renter's insurance

and the list goes on...maybe some day i'll finish.

i have, however, completed some tasks.

things i've done:
ironed all the work clothes i do own
started working [yesterday]
had 7 different orientations with 7 different people
got my new desk [pictures to come of my awesome computer later...]
got my living room, kitchen and bathrooms set up

yeah, that's about it! :)

the author

it's jeffery deaver. i finally remembered to bring the book outta the loft long enough to type it in for you guys! i'm sure you were all on the edge of your seats waiting for it. :) the book is called the bone collector, and since i've never seen the movie, i have no idea if the movie is based on it or not. although i'll tell you right now that it is a great book. gruesome, yes, scary, no, interesting, YES! it's yet another page turner and i'm happy that it is the first in a series of three that my mom got at sam's so i'll have something to read for the rest of the week! i'm almost halfway with this one and now that i can't put it down, i'm sure i'll be done with it by morning.

i'll keep you guys posted. here's some pictures of the lake to make everyone jealous of where i am right now...
