Catching Up on Life Part I

I finally had a day off where I could do things for me. THANK GOD.

I woke up at 11, stared at my drapes, and decided it was time for new ones. So post gym time, I hit up Joann’s and bought fabric and whipped them up before I unlocked level 1000 of homemaker status via baking pumpkin cheesecake, mini pumpkin cheesecake, and pumpkin pudding. #wifey (Seriously though, reasons I’d make a good wife…)


I also went to Best Buy to play with their DSLR’s and gauge what I want to upgrade to. As I was talking to the camera girl, she mentioned that the Nikon d7100 will be released this Sunday and opened up the cabinet it was in to let me see the box. A few minutes later, she took it out, mounted it, and LET ME PLAY WITH IT. I WAS SO EXCITED, IF YOU CAN’T TELL.

Lowdown: it’s fucking amazing! It’s being sold as body only, although you can get it with the 18-105 mm lens. I WANT IT. I’m thinking of upgrading to this beast. I still need to sell my d3000 though.

I also got my new glasses from Coastal in the snail mail today and I love them!

And lastly, I just watched episode 1 of season 5 of Mad Men and IT WAS EXCELLENT. LOL at the following parts:

– At Don’s surprise party:
Roger: “Why don’t you sing like that?”
Jane: “Why don’t you look like him?”
– Peggy chillin’ with Joan’s baby and Peter walks in and asks “What’s that?”
– Peter telling his secretary to pencil in a fake meeting with Coca Cola at 6 AM on Staten Island, knowing that Roger will see it

A WHOLE Damn Apple.

Can I just say how happy I am that I have gotten through the Zumba Sculpt & Tone DVD all the way through TWICE!? Not right after each other, separate days. Today being one of them. I just finished up about 15 minutes ago and I feel tired, but great. I’m actually hungry, but only for pumelos. Oh man, pumelos. I want to eat the last one we have, but my mom made this Romanian pumpkin pastry and I think it’s finally done, so I’ll eat that. IT SMELLS SO GOOD. Pictures to come to tomorrow! In the meantime, here’s one of the pastries (there’s 4).

Yes, that is a WHOLE DAMN APPLE in the middle. I stuffed it with 2 pitted dates.

Anyway, so I have buttloads of homework and it’s driving me nuts. We didn’t have time to work with the halfscale mannequins during class this past week for Fashion Design 2, so I gotta pattern draft 2 skirts right quick and I am not looking forward to it. Then I have to do this compilation of the flats I created for Textile Design with all kinds of informations. And for Apparel Production 1 I have to finish up my patterns, and draw illustrations and flats for my garments. All due at the end of class next Friday. Which, you know, is a lot of time to do THOSE, but dear god. Three core classes is hard work. But it’s the price I pay for refusing night classes. I would probably die if/when I had to take night classes. Which I feel will have to happen soon because the as time goes on, I’ve noticed classes tend to be at night more. Saddest of pandas.

Anyway, I need to go build this pumpkin recipe on Weight Watchers and see how many points it is per serving. Have a good Friday night!
