College Gameday!

I am on such a HIGH right now! My amazing Hokies beat #1 Duke last night!!!! We won 64-60 and lead for most of the game!

Before we knocked the Devils off their throne, we had ESPN's College Gameday come to Blacksburg! Although, I did not attend (early morning + waiting in long lines are not my favorite) we had so much amazing support there!

My Hokies make me a little nervous but we pulled out an amazing win! It was one of the best, if not THE best, basketball games I have ever been to (and I have had season tickets since freshman year). We had some amazing plays and showed the world we are ready to be heard as a force in basketball.
We rushed the court following the game, it was like a rave on steroids. So many people, so excited, so loud, so smelly! We also had to maneuver the crowds to get down there and jump from about 10 feet! But it was all worth it to see my Hokies get a much deserved WIN!!! Now we are ready for the NCAA Tournament!

Dreaming of a 5K

While I have been trying to step up my workout regimen, its hard to keep up to working out everyday with everything going on in my life. I usually work out about 3-4 days a week and would like to get it up to 5 consistently.

I have been trying to continue to my Shaun T. Insanity Workouts, but doing it in a sorority house used for many events is sometimes hard to do. And I love my school's gym! This summer they added a huge addition, including a new cardio machine area, weight room and group class rooms. My favorite is the amazing tv's on the machines, making working out a little more enjoyable.

However, my goal this semester is to run a 5k without walking (and by run, I mean jog). I ran/walked our "3.2 for 32 Run in Remembrance" last year and want to run it the entire way this year! Hopefully, I will be able to complete my goal by April 16th or sooner since there are many 5k options in the Spring!

Last year's 3.2 for 32!

Lilly Pillows

As I searched Ebay for any cute goods for cheap, I found an amazing vendor (who should try Etsy out) that any Lilly-loving girl will love! These would be prefect to spice up any dorm room or young girl's apartment with some color and pizazz!

Loving the new "Modern and Design" collection from Gap. The ad is super urban and yet the pieces are classics for any wardrobe!


So sorry for the lack of posting, this past week has been extremely busy between tests, school work, sorority events and all my other obligations. But here is a recap on my past week!

Saturday - "Girl's Valentine's Date" dinner and a movie style with my two friends Rosie and Ashley. We had a relaxed dinner and saw "Just Go With It," I loved it, it was a lot funnier than I thought it would be.

Sunday - Basketball Game vs. GA Tech, it was so much fun winning 102-77 and seeing all the second string favorites play!

Monday - Victoria gave a yoga class to help her certification. She was so great and I can't wait to try yoga again!

Tuesday - Class ALLLLLL day long followed by a basketball game, but not just any game, my Hokies played my hometown Maryland Terps. And we won!!!!

Wednesday - Valentine's Day Sister Social planned by the fabulous Sarah complete with sweets, valentine's, photo shoot backdrops, prizes, and sisterly loving.
