I've been seriously slacking in the blogging world, but I figured that WILW would be a lovely way to get back in the swing of things.

I am loving the fall weather that has sprung itself upon DC!

I am loving that my sweet sweet boy will be visiting me tomorrow! I have not seen him in 3 weeks and I miss him terribly!

I am not loving that I have been sick all week so far! I hope that I am all better by tomorrow to head back to work!

I am loving that this weekend is Halloween! I can't wait to see what DC has in store for Halloween because it's my first one here!

I am loving DC! I have been here since September for an internship, and I have fallen in love with this area. The fact that everywhere I turn there is history surrounding me, and not to mention my butt and legs have been loving all the walking I do these days not having a car here!

I am loving the new things I have tried and discovered being down here.. one of them being FRIED GREEN TOMATOES, YUM!!

Hope you have a fabulous Wednesday!!

Irene, you got some splainin to do..

So as you all are well aware the lovely lady of the month named Irene made her way up the east coast.

She made herself very known around these parts.

Lots of down trees, down wires, flooding and other destruction.

Along with her lovely storm, she took my power. Not okay. I am on day 2 of no power.

Let me tell ya, life without power is not so glorious. You don't realize how often you use it until you are without it.

I missed the VMAs. I missed Entourage. I feel like I am out of the loop. My hair looks like a hurricane hit it while unable to blow dry it after showering. I could go on...

But enough of me bitching (my apologies)

This is what I have been up to, sans power.

Games by candlelight

And packing up for DC

Hope you all have had power and are safe from Irene!

Kim K's big wedding

It seems that there hasn't been quite as much hype for a wedding since the Royal Wedding that took place this Spring...

that is until Kim Kardashian announced her engagement to her basketball beau.

This past weekend was the day that they tied the knot in quite the extravagant wedding in Cali!

Here are some pictures of the big affair...

I don't understand this everyone in white thing?! Is this a new norm? I am not engaged or married but I would NOT want my bridesmaids in white... so odd!

how preshy!!!

Lindsay clearly thought she was Pippa... not really feeling the fact that she wore white to someones wedding, but maybe that's just me?

I personally wasn't a fan of this veil thing, I thought it was a lil odd but again, that was just me!

Thoughts? Did you love it, or did it dissapoint ya?

Hope you're having a lovely week!

Where has summer gone?!

I can't believe that in less then 2 weeks I will be making my way to DC.

It seems that this was something I never thought would finally come!

My summer has been amazing, and I apologize for the complete lack of blogging.

Here are some updates on what I have been up too...

I have spent lots of time lounging on the beach, and dock soaking up the sun (don't worry, I use sunblock)

I have spent lots of time out on the boats with friends, and family tubbing and wake boarding (and maybe getting a few jellyfish stings)

I have been devoured numerous times by mosquitos (it's quite ridiculous how many bites I have)

I turned the big 22. (far less hype for this birthday as last years big 21)

Celebrated our families 3rd annual family reunion and my sweet grandmas 80th birthday! (we have SO many female Leos in my family, rawr!)

I have gone from blonde to brunette (and am shockingly LOVING it)

I have shopped, shopped, and shopped some more (all for DC of course)

I have my tres professional clothes all ready to go (with a pinch of Lilly of course)

Just got my Lilly planner so I will not forget anything while being a busy DC bee!

Slowly but surely I am packing up all things fancy schmancy to hopefully woah DC politicos!

How have your summers been? Doing anything exciting these last seem weeks?!

Missed you all, I promise I will be a better blogger!!

K takes DC!

This past semester and summer has been quite a whirl wind figuring out life, and what not! (think mid life crisis, at 21)

After going back and forth wanting to be a teacher, but then realizing I really love all things about being a teacher, and think it's one of the best professions ever, I would rather pursue the second part of my dual degree, that being Political Science.

So after lots of hours of debating with myself, I decided to apply for a semester internship program in Washington DC!

To my great surprise I was accepted into the Criminal Justice/Law program and will be moving to DC come August 31st to complete my final semester of college!

I am still waiting to receive my specific internship placement, but I am super excited!

I have spent many of my free days this summer shopping for suits, and all things professional! (I feel like a real grown up!)

Think Elle Woods takes DC ;)

I am super excited, and anxious to experience DC!

If you have any suggestions of places to visit or things to do in DC let a girrrrl know since I am quite clueless!

There will be oodles of updates I am sure!

Hope you had a fabulous Tuesday loves!


4th of July fun!

I hope that you all had an amazing long weekend! It was so wonderful spending time with all the friends and family!! Not to mention celebrating this beautiful nation!

Unfortunately I got a nasty stomach bug that caused my weekend to start Saturday rather then Thursday/Friday like I was hoping! But thankfully Saturday I felt much better and was shore bound by 1pm with my best, L!

We sat in lots of this.. (this is normal for summer cruises down to the shore)

Enjoyed a few fancy drinks ;)

Was very silly with all the little cousins, especially this one! (my mini-me, turned 13 today! *cries*)

caught some crabbies off the dock!

Did some wake boarding and tubing

enjoyed some breathtaking sunset cruises on the river

a little paddle boarding action

more fancy drinks ;)

lounging around and tanning

And of course, enjoyed a few fireworks shows, one while out on the boat!

Hope you all had an amazing long weekend and getting back to the grind this week hasn't been too rough! It's already Wednesday, YAY!
