End of the Week Roundup

I'm not going to lie guys, this week wasn't very good. I was actually worried I wasn't going to have a legitimate round up for you...luckily that was not the case.

1. Saturday was a gorgeous day. My town held its community yard sale so Dave and I set up "shop" with our neighbor and spent most of the day hanging out with her, making a quick buck. Then we headed up to my Aunt Penny's house for dinner, which is always a good time. 

Gorgeous, I tells ya!

2.  Thursday I had lunch with Lauren, or Lola as I affectionately call her. We finished lunch early and headed back to work and hung out in the parking lot, chatting. I noticed she had the new Paramore CD in her car and our chat sesh turned into an all out karaoke moment, hair brush microphone and all. You know when the brush comes out, it's serious. It was so fun, almost like she and I were in high school again just being our silly selves. No picture of this moment, because you can't ruin a good sing along by saying, "wait, wait, wait, let's take a picture!". Instead, here is the song:

Still Into You by Paramore on Grooveshark

3. I got an email from the dean of my university stating that my advisor recommended me to meet with the chair of the Middle States Commission. The MSC is a huge deal for my school and for them to choose me to be one of the representatives for the College of Lifelong Learning students was a huge honor. Sadly, the chair is coming to my school on the 16th, which is when I'll be in Vermont so I had to decline. Which totally stunk, but I'm still super flattered that my advisor and the dean even thought of me in the first place. 

4. This week's weather has been amazing for Pennsylvania this time of the year. I decided to roll the windows down and just let my hair whip around (insert "I whip my hair back and forth" joke here). It felt so good to just let go. 

Then I got home and let the neurosis kick back in and brushed my hair out immediately.

5. Nibbler and his arch nemesis, The Fly. Whenever one of these suckers gets into the house, Nibbler runs around making these weird meows at it, then grabs it with his paws, stuffs it in his mouth and eats it. 

Yeah, I think it's gross too. 

That's it for this week. How was your week?


Linking up with Lauren and Lauren!


  1. Boo for your week not being super awesome but at least the highlights are great!!

    Totally jealous of your weather! And of course, I always love a good kitten :) Our vacation is over :( but I'm glad I can finally catch up with you!!

  2. Hey Nicole! I am back (oh dear! I sounded totally like psycho!) Was away for a while, had to take break from all the blogging...

    Hey chin up girl! I am glad you are looking on the positive side by still blogging on the happie things this week. Keep surrounding yourself in positive energy and I am sure the bad stuff will leave soon. Take care! xoxo

  3. Wow, that does look beautiful- almost unreal! Congrats on the MSC- and way to look at the positives of what's going on!

  4. Aww sorry the week wasn't great hun! I know if I were still at the office a quick trip up would have cured some of that. We need to find more time to get together. Miss my bestie. BTW gorgeous photo from in the car with the wind whipped hair! Rawr <3

  5. I want to crash somebody's yard sale. I don't have a yard as I live in an apartment building but have a lot of things I would want to try and sell. Hope you have a good weekend!

  6. Keep on keeping on!

    Thank you for linking up with Friday's Fab Favorites!

  7. Love the song and the picture of that sky is beautiful! Hope next week is better for you!

    I have a giveaway going on, would love for you to check it out!

  8. My dog has a thing for flies too, except he's not quite quick enough to catch them. We know whenever there is a fly in the house even before we see it because he starts acting all crazy.

  9. It's quite amusing watching the dog spaz over a fly. He bumps into walls, falls on his face etc just to get a stinkin fly. One time there were two bees on the ground together and he broke up whatever it was they were doing. I'm pretty sure his nose got the punishment!! Beautiful sky, The clouds look so funky, like your right there underneath. You're beautiful too! Picture in the car, in love with the hair. Wasnt the weather perfect this week? I brought back out my capris! But totally has gone back to cold and rainy...blah
