We are so close! It's almost Friiiiday, Friiiday. Gotta get down on Friday. That means it is time for:
Oh, college!!!! I miss it!
|Good ol' U of A! (Source)|

Here is the final card I sent out.
I miss college so much. And Tucson has my heart fooor. Eeev. Verrrr. Proof:
|I miss the views while hiking...|
|A REAL wildcat (bobcat)!!! At the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum|
|Homecoming on the mall is RIDICULOUS.|
|Apartment complexes had pools like this....|
|Pictures don't do it justice. Simply gorgeous.|
|My very first apartment alone...sick mountain/palm tree/pool view.|
|I even saw a GILA MONSTER!!!! DANGEROUS!|
|My grandma visited and I took her out into the desert.|
|Ocotillos are my favorite! The tall skinny cactus thing with flowers at the top.|
|Oh yeah...and the parties....|
|Late nights with friends...|
|I have like 30 pictures posing with this turtle. Fun fact: I collect turtles and giraffes!|
|Going to Coyotes games! (Yes...my hair went through many stages)|
|Hiking is THE BEST in the Sonoran desert.|
|Thursday night dance parties....|
|Go Cats!!! (And I am SO short.)|
|Mill Ave in Tempe (and a stranger...)|
|We have the REAL Biodome!!!|
|So many friends I haven't seen in years...|
|But I love 'em just as much!|
|You are in love now, too, right?!|
Um. Whoa, pic overload. And this is just a SMALL snippet of my life out there. Miss it!
I am jealous of my little sister and her fun new apartment and crazy college town. She goes where I went for my first two years before transferring...University of Delaware....and I have an intense love for Newark. Love all the little shops and restaurants and bars and campus and architecture...oh, and the people! Great school. I plan on going there often to see Sista and grab dinner or fro yo or a drink (or six). Something about being back in that town makes me so deliriously happy...freshman year was one of the most fun and life-changing experiences of my life. It just feels right when I am back there. Plus, they have lots of newbie places on Main Street now...like Chipotle (<3), an new Irish pub that I love, and this Winehouse I'm dying to go to.
On the homefront, look what I came home to the other day.
Yes. Dragging 3/4 of a duffel bag through a little hole in his crate.
This bag was no. Where. Close. To him.
He is a magic dog.

Oh, and happy September! Officially my second month of blogging has begun. Little bloggy is growing up! Also, as of today, I am a new member of "20 Something Bloggers;" starting to feel like a real blogger now!
Some things I look forward to this month?
- LDW! We're going to play hard.
- A fun wedding with fun people in Virginia! Roadtriiiip. (I need a dress...oops.)
- Integrating Kodes into Philly.
- Starting to cook/bake with pumpkin on the reg! It's acceptable in September, right? Then I have pumpkin picking and carving to look forward to!!!
- Pretty fall-ish nail polish colors....like this.
|(How great is Pinterest?!)|
- Are you ready for some FOOTBALL?!?!
- Winery outing (in the cooler weather!) with live music and light food and tastings.
- Oh, and September 1st means beginning to utilize this little guy...so I don't go through 4893420 Post-Its a month, instead. I feel so organized!
