Nerves and Updates

 Hey y'all,

So I have been gone this past week, between a weekend away from home, working, job applications and some exciting news I have been a little distracted. But here are a few pictures from my weekend in Chapel Hill.

Upon arriving in Chapel Hill I spotted my grandlittle, kBm walking and drove her to the PBX house where they were having dinner and I was ambushed by some of my sweet sisters. After hanging out with sisters in the house I met up with my Little for dinner after her volunteering. We went to Tomato Jakes followed by Yopo (The Yogurt Pump)...yum!

The adorable sign on my Little kBb's board.
We spent the night in since she had some homework and RA duties to do while I watched the premiere of SCANDAL! Is anyone else obsessed with that show? I am not a big fan of politics but the show is amazing!

Friday I woke up to move my car (the woe of campus parking) and then went back to bed for a bit. The afternoon I had lunch with one of my best friends, former roomie, and PBX sister jCm. We ran some errands such as going to Homegoods, Michael's and Target where we mainly were on the search for adorable things for Big/Little week since jCm will be a grand-Big and I am becoming a great-grand-Big!

We got back to campus and had a nice time walking around including spotting two chipmunks (unheard of since UNC is dominated by the squirrels) and some of the cows currently on campus which you can read about here.
Look what we stumbled across when exploring campus Friday!
Bowtie and Argyle=perfection.
This was my one bum outfit all weekend so excuse my state of dress.
After hanging out around campus, jCM, myself and my little kBb all went to Buns for some yummy hamburgers before kBb had to go to Duke's campus for a special credit movie/lecture thing so jCm and I went back to her apartment in a monsoon as CH is known for to watch some Say Yes to the Dress and then I went back to kBb's room to get ready to go out to Topo.

Top of the Hill was a lot of fun and although my little had a headache so we left early (and didn't take a single picture together) I was excited to see some of my sorority sisters including a few celebrating their 21st birthdays!

 Saturday morning I got up early to drive to Raleigh to see my baby sister, kDi. Her birthday was Sunday but I unfortunately had to be back home that night to work so we got together Saturday for lunch and cuddling while watching Criminal Minds. It was a horrible day with the weather making it cold and rainy most of the day. 

kDi in her apartment with the flowers she got  when AW asked her to his fraternity formal in Charleston later this month. And yes I am jealous since I have never been to Charleston or a fraternity formal. But AW is a brother to my other little, mGk's boyfriend so she will have someone to talk to.
Yep, she'll hate me for this photo but what are big sisters for.
 After hanging out with the baby sis I visited one of my best friends and sorority sisters RM who is currently in Raleigh working on her masters. It was great to catch up and see her since she is so sweet and understanding and our late night boy sessions are some of the reasons for our close bond. 

I drove back to Chapel Hill in the pouring rain and was trapped in my car at the house's parking for a little while since I did not have an umbrella but luckily one of the sisters in the house rescued me by letting me borrow an umbrella. I then walked with my glittle, kBm to family dinner with her big mGk since the rest of the fam (little kBb was working and glittle sGc was out of town). It was great to catch up with my other little and I gave her her present for her 22nd birthday! I also gave gifts to kBm for the future gglittle.

Little kBb's gift I gave her earlier on Friday night. It's a map I modge-podged on canvas and then wrote "not all who wander are lost." and "the world is your oyster." It was the perfect addition to her room since she has been complaining about her white walls and as a global studies major who studied abroad for a year it made perfect sense.
 Little mGk's gift was a pashmina with an anchor and her monogram. I of course forgot to take a picture of it and she has yet to post one on Fb. so here is the image from the etsy site I ordered from.
Order it here.

 I loved showering my family with gifts and spent Saturday night in while my little was out and about due to an evil headache and the news that I would have to be up around 8:45am in  order to drive home and get ready for work. boo. But breakfast with my little Sunday morning was the perfect farewell.

After that great weekend I have since had a lot of surprises and some great news. I received a swap package, my October Julep Maven box and the biggest news of all.....A JOB INTERVIEW!!!!

Not a phone interview but a live, in person interview TOMORROW! I received the call on Monday and was unfortunately detained so trying to return the voice-mail took a bit, I thought I had merely received a phone interview but it was an in person interview and between the time of Wednesday and Friday the only time that fit my schedule was tomorrow at 10:30am so please keep me in your thoughts and wish me luck. This position is for a company I adore and I am really interested in the position. While I know no job is perfect I hope the third time is the charm since after two phone interviews this summer I would love to begin a career at this location and really make an impact. Sorry for the vagueness, I have been pretty nervous since I scheduled my interview but after hours of prep it is time to leave everything up to God's plans. 


  1. GOOD LUCK!!!!!! You will do amazing in your interview, I just know it!! Who can resist a Carolina girl?! Umm, the answer is no one. Let us know how it goes!! And P.S. I'm so jealous you got to take a trip to UNC! I miss it sooo much and haven't had a chance to go!

    1. THANK YOU! I hope they can't resist this Carolina girl. I'm hoping for some good news! I loved visiting but it also was a time to be at peace with UNC. I am blessed to have had four years there and love the place but I am glad I no longer have exams and papers for now.

  2. Sounds like such a fun weekend! Good luck tomorrow!!! You'll be awesome.

  3. Looks and sounds like you had a blast this weekend minus all of the rain. EEK. Good luck and let us know how it goes. :)

  4. Best of luck on your interview!!!
