Feeling Productive

DISCLAIMER: I ramble a lot in this post...but it's fun.

First of all happy St. Patty's Day!

Here's where I stand in terms of accomplishing what needs to be done this week:

Okay, I have my four layers covered. They are laying all over Carla's house. She is so fantastic for being my cake mentor :-).

I took a few pictures but I was so busy that I didn't take them until we had already covered them with saran wrap. I PROMISE there will be good pictures of this massive cake. I will share soon. 

Last night I started an afghan. I know, I know...I'm channeling my inner grandma...(and this doesn't exactly have to be accomplished this week) but I really wanted something I can work on for a while just whenever I don't have anything to do. And it's really an easy pattern that I don't have to think about.

I finished my DFII assignment that I shared with you yesterday. (I'm really proud)

I accidentally did almost all of my homework for my research class on Tuesday and it isn't due until tomorrow.

I just finished my Chemistry assignment. I'll be double checking it with Mandy in the morning though. hehe I wouldn't survive without her.

I wrote my first letter for the pen pal list! I'm so excited.
 *found via keyword: letter*
I'm hand writing them all because I think that's more special. And I want to write something different to each lady. So this could take me a while because this list is longer than I thought it would be. (I'm thinking of getting some cute paper for future letters - but for now I'll settle on drawing pictures in the margins of my notebook paper hehe)

I also started working out (ha!) working out for me is running 2 miles.
 *found via keyword: gym*
Not actual working out like other people with weights and crunches and loud workout music in the background. I'm the only person I know who can be lazy about working out. By summer I want to get it up to 4 or 5 miles a day. Then by summer time it will be warm enough for me to run outside on the trail by my new house.

OH! And I finally woke up early enough to get an empty washer in the dorm and do some laundry before spring break.

I don't want to lose any time by having to do laundry over the break and it's hard to find empty washers in the laundry room here haha.

Tomorrow 3 exciting things are happening!
1. I'm meeting Mandy's parents for the first time :-). It's a big deal to me bc I don't know them but I love their daughter. I'm more nervous about meeting them than I was about meeting Josh's parents...but I guess I sort of already knew them a little bit.

2. I'm going to finish the cake tomorrow...even if I have to pull an all nighter. I still have to paint, stake, and stack them...eeek!

3. I'm going to Char's wedding rehearsal. And I'm excited because maybe I'll figure out what's going on lol because I kinda have no idea...but it's all good.

 *found via keyword: spring*
(My parents' yard is full of these :-)
I hope you all have an A-MAZING weekend (and spring break if you get one!)!! I'm starting my spring break early because I won't be going to classes on Friday. YAY. I'll have lots of time to blog with you over Spring Break. Mandy and I will be CRAFTING lots and I'm excited :-).
