I've wanted to see An Education for.... well, ever. And so, I declared to myself that this weekend while my roommate was gone, nothing would stop me. So last night, everyone, I sat at my desk and painted my nails black while falling in love with Carey Mulligan. Oh my, I'm in love with this movie and every vintage dress and frame of Paris in it.
 Also, this weekend I determined I was going to talk to everyone from home. I talked to my sister for an hour and eight minutes and listened to her react to the Rebecca Black Friday video, talked to my grandma for fifty six minutes about everything, called Niklaas with my friend Maggie to discuss her love life (he's amazing for helping my friends), and my best friend Jenni. I sat in my room for three hours in my big cozy chair talking and genuinely soaking in what was going on with my family. Maybe I'm wrong, but being away and just having those phone calls makes me feel so grown up when I start talking about the economy or drunk driving or just about cars so that I don't have to say goodbye yet. I whole heartedly miss hearing my dad rant and tell me things going on at his work and it makes me realize how much I didn't always listen nor pay attention to when I was home.

 I slept in my birthday suit. Okay, not exactly because after the great fire alarm incident of December 2010 at 2AM when one unlucky girl was caught in just a hand towel to cover her body, I couldn't do that. But, I was in my undergarments and it was possibly the most magical experience ever. Clothes just get in the way, if you ask me.
 I wrote. I havent written anything substantial since winter break and oh, my. I have this folder of random everything. Sentences I love, paragraphs of random narration, chunks of what I dream to be something, the odd scant of poetry, and just...anything. I read every last bit of it and it was like drinking water in a desert. I need to do more Maggie time, clearly.
 Not all weekend could be hermit-like and Friday night wasn't a hermit designated night. And it was amazing. My best friend Katie who is transferring next year that I keep re-falling into obsession with and I and our best friend Kaleb who is our straight male girl pal went to Walgreen's to rent a chick flick and happened across giant bouncy balls with cartoons. Three for four dollars or one for five. So I got a disney princess one. And then we got cookie dough. And then we got ice cream. And then we cooked the cookie dough into one giant cookie and while hot, smothered it in the whole container of ice cream and devoured it. And then watched our chick flick. Ah-mazing.
 In lieu of this lovely awakening that was watching An Education, I edited these pictures for a post and as it turns out, I love this outfit more than I remember when I wore it. I've worn this dress twice on my blog but never have I worn it with a sweater or top, so I decided to wear it over something. I just love the lace too much not to wear it again. It's something Amanda from Upside of Wonder does so effortlessly and I loved the result! I got these opaque tights from target for $1.75 and I'm convinced that they are going to solve my opaque tight problem. They are nicer than any pair I've ever owned! This top was also thrifted for two dollars and I feel like it was a major steal. The little polka dots are perfect. And, of course, the boots. The boots. Niklaas really is perfect and I wear these shoes way, way too much. And I wear bows, way way too much. Awe, well. So that concludes the weekend of March twenty fifth to the twenty seventh, ladies!
P.S. NIKLAASSSS IS HEREEEEEE TODAYYYYYYY VISITING MEEE IN MISSOULLLLAAA!!!! <3<3<3
