The Tomato (Titled by Fer)

Today I went to the farmers' market to pick out my plants. They were 6/$5 so I got a couple of basil plants (one green, one purple), a couple tomato plants (one big, one small), a hot pepper plant, and the last one I forgot...I planted my tomato plants into the Topsy Turvy. My apartment neighbors laughed...but they won't have fresh tomatoes growing on their porch like I will! I'm at home this weekend for my grandpa's funeral :( so I can't upload the picture of my mini garden, but I'll post that later.

-Title explanation:: Fer (my little 8 yr old sister) wanted to help me write the blog. She titled it then lost interest and left.

change of plans

I'm soo excited for my bff to come to town today! Too bad I have class from 9-3. Oh's gorgeous outside AND my secret project is going well. It will be posted at the end of summer :)  Hopefully I will get that creative bug back because unfortunately, I'm just not feelin it lately! Maybe a trip to Goodwill will cure me.

update: my friend isn't coming. reason = lazy!  but at least I will have time to get some other stuff done so I can leave the weekend free of homework and errands!

The most inspiring blog I've ever read

This blog made my cry the first time I read it. It is so inspirational. I'm too tired to write out the story, but I just wanted to share it.

My group for a marketing class I'm taking sucks, well most of them. Anyways, procrastination is our favorite activity and our redic paper is due tomorrow. I'm finally done putting it all together and have passed it on so it is out of my hands. Feels good.

Weekend Recap

Well, this weekend went way too fast. Now it's Sunday afternoon and I'm going to be working on homework forever.

Yesterday I went to my first casino with some friends. It was really fun, but a little different than I had expected.

Yesterday I also went to the farmers' market when I was home.  It was the first day and was less than impressive and much more expensive than the one here! I got a Topsy Turvy to grow my tomato plants in and I'm super excited to get that going next weekend!

Weekend Project: Tomato and Herb Garden

When I was at the farmers' market last weekend, one vendor had an amazing selection of heirloom tomatoes and herbs. I can't plant them in a garden since I live in an apartment, but I do have a porch so my friday mission is to find a big pot and get some soil to start my mini garden! Pictures will be up after I get it all together.

The only thing I hate more than walking to walking to class in the rain! I'm ready for the real summer to come, the one where there's sunshine and I can get a tan!

My secret project is taking up a lot of my time but I love it. The only downside is that this blog isn't getting as much attention as it used to.  This will have to change.

Going to watch Kathie Lee and Hoda on the Today show now...learning "How to Schmooze."

Farmers' Market Season Has Begun!

I don't know why I love going to farmers' markets so much, but I do. I love to just walk around and see what everyone is selling and the interesting people who attend.  Yesterday I walked to the market and regretted it when I saw all the plants I wanted to buy! Next week I am definitely driving so I can get some plants for a mini garden on my back porch. I'm pretty excited to get that going.  While I was walking around I saw several people selling strawberries. I got some last year and had to get them again because they have an amazing taste, nothing like what you buy at the store.  I also got a bundle of green onion and some beets.  When I got back to my apartment I made the most delicious salad: spinach and romaine lettuce with sliced strawberries, 1/2 oz goat cheese and balsamic spray dressing. Yummm

Drive-in...yes please!

I've been in summer school for 3 days and I'm already feeling restless. I need to go on some road trips or have something to look forward to! One thing I wanted to do last summer that I didn't get to was go to the Starlite drive-in. I've been to a drive-in in northern Indiana a bunch when I was younger but I really want to go to the one near Bloomington. Now I'm just waiting for some good movies to play. This weekend is: How to Train Your Dragon and Iron Man: 2. Not too bad...but I think I'll wait and see what's playing next week. 

p.s. The secret project is going very well! I may reveal it sooner than originally planned :)

Ready for finals to be over, not college!

I'm about to take my last final of the semester (ugh still have 14 credits in the summer...). Then it will be time to graduate. I'm trying not to think about how all my friends are leaving me so I'm making plans to visit them!

I've got to call my mom now to remind her that my fam needs to get there early or they may have this lovely view:
I'm still sad Bobby Knight will be speaking in the state of Indiana while I am graduating (at my cousin's school for her commencement!). But Quincy Jones will have to do.  

p.s. My project (the one that's hiding in the top tab) is coming along very well. In a few months, it will be shared :)

Study Study

I am trying my best to focus and study and not let senioritis get the best of me. It's harder than I thought it would be though!  Taylor Swift and Dunkin Donuts coffee are getting me through it. 3 more finals left :)
