2- Reading Elise's favorite new blog, Busy Bee Lauren
3- Going to Dollar Tree
4- Listening to the music from the newest episode of Glee
[yes, I know I could be typing my case study at the same time...]
5-Blogging about how you're avoiding writing the case study
Are any of you guys super duper law professionals? 'Cause I just remembered why I am not the next Elle Woods.

And now, because I am a blogging fool, I will share with you some favorite images I discovered on my phone's memory card. You know why? Because I am halfway done with my silly case study/brief for Media Law and I need a break.
But once class was over...
Inspired by this tutorial. It was SO easy and I adore the finished product.
I also made this yummy cake inspired by one of my faaaavorite bloggers, Meg @ Whatever.
And remember when I wanted to make cookies?
This beauty sat out on the counter for a day or two. Still no chocolate chips = still no cookies.

You drop off on the complete opposite side of campus. I never ever go there, but, would you mind if I rode your bus anyway just because you're cute?
Dear Mr. Suave sunglasses guy,
I totally knew that you were checking me out behind those sweet shades of yours. And I did, in fact, notice when you pulled them off all suave-like. It's okay though. You were kind of cute, so I'm taking it as a compliment.
Dear fellow students in my parks and rec class,
Thanks for not judging my eighties outfit and gagging yourselfs with spoons when you saw me. And thanks for dressing up with me.
You're rad, Elise
Last semester you stunk. Thanks for being so awesome this year. I like you.

First, cut out your circles from a piece of ribbon. I went and bought a bag of scrap ribbon from Hobby Lobby with lots and lots of lovely colors.
Once you’ve singed the edges of all your circles, you glue them together using a small dot of hot glue on each one. Add a bead, gem, or pearl in the center and you’ve got yourself a flower!
This one is a newer version of the black one I posted back on this post.
First, cut out 10 circles of whatever size you’d like your flower to be. Then, take 9 of the circles and fray the edges. Lay out one circle as your base, then fold another circle in fourths. You’re going to do this with the next 7 circles and put them onto the base circle in 2 layers of 4. Once you’ve sewed all those on, take your last circle (the non-frayed one) and cut it in a spiral. Here’s where it gets tricky. You’re going to wind the spiral tightly and sew it into the center of your flower. Then, sew a button or whatever you’d like on top and you’re done!
One more flower for the night and then I’m done.
This one’s great and also pretty easy. And, super super cute at that.
Cut your fabric ½ inch wide and about 1.5 feet long (depending on how big you want your flower)
Tie random knots (7-10 knots) in the fabric strip.
Glue one end to a piece of felt (cut slightly bigger then you would like your flower to be).
Make a line of hot glue one half circle at a time, and stick the strip down in a spiral pattern. When you reach the end, glue it down securely and cut off the extra felt.
Saturday, my roommates and I went on a flower making kick. So, here are some fun pictures of the fruits of our labors. J
