A Post Inwhich We Reflect on our Weirdness


Woah! Long time no blog. 

Life has been a tad cray around here - it is that '1/4 way through the semester' time and the test/papers have started being due. 

But life in rooms 309/311 (we're in a quad now!) has been pretty grand. And hilarious. Well...at least we think so. Thus, the events of our past week can either be described as awkward or awesome. 





Awkward: 

You know that girl on campus who runs through the quad singing musicals like 'Les Mis' and 'Thoroughly Modern Millie' at 11:15 at night?? Yeah. That's Laura. 

Amy laughed hysterically for at least 9.5 minutes at this video.*

Boys. Enough said. 

Laura's 'Bad Life Choice of the Century': eating two - yes two - Clif bars in about a 5 hour span. Yeahhhhhh. 

We procrastinate a lot. 

This is the 3rd outfit post in the row that I (Laura) has worn the same skirt; I swear - I do wear other things. I know, I know - 'picture, or it didn't happen.' It has been cold. Don't judge. 

*I think only Laura found this awkward. I (Amy) found it amazing. Watch it. Now. You will die with laughter, promise. 










Amy:
Coat: Thrifted: Vintage 
Sweater: H&M
Jeans: Forever 21
Shoes: Thrifted 








Awesome: 

Late night Wendy's/McDonald's run for wild berry lemonade and the first Shamrock Shake of the season! 

This has been our theme song lately. 'Bless the rains' has been the answer to everything between us and our gal pal Alexa. 

We are going home tomorrow to celebrate Amy and her sister's birthdays - the party is 90's themed! Just wait; our outfits are totally rad. 

Boys. Enough Said. 

Laura found out unexpectedly this week that she is moving back to this lovely house for a second year of summer interning at her church!  Plus, Amy has an interview coming up to be a tour guide at a local backyard safari - yeah, such a thing exists! So fun! 

Laura was featured on the ModCloth blog today!

This lovely P&P link here. What character are you!? Laura is Bingley and Amy is Charlotte. We were really glad we didn't get Collins. "What excellent boiled potatoes!" Creep.

Spring Break is coming! Celebrate! 




 Laura: 
Sweater: Garbage? That sounds weird, but the story is here : Gap 
Skirt: Thrifted 
Glasses: c/o Firmoo 
Suspenders: Thrifted 
Tights: Anna Sui:TJ Maxx 
Boots/Headband: Christmas gifts
Necklace: Gift from France! 


xoxo, 

Laura and Amy

I think you were a little harsh on Mr. Collins. Liking boiled potatoes does not make you a creep.

You had me rolling here Laura!! That Toto song always puts a smile on my face...and yes I will admit that it's totally a guilty pleasure of mine that I keep nestled on my Ipod :-)

Wildberry lemonades and shamrock shakes are all I've been craving lately - aren't they divine?

You are cute as can be..so is your roomie :-) I love the suspenders and I'm also totally that girl that sang show tunes around campus like that...actually I still go out at night on my back porch with my uke and sing. Poor neighbors!

I think the suspenders really complete Laura's outfit! Now I have an excuse to visit the thrift store or give-away store again...

Loving the blue coat, BTW! Too bad things like that are often not found in the thrift stores I visit...
