Finally, Things Have Slowes Down!

Okay. So, I have been SO busy these past couple months! I don't know how I haven't written in so long!!
Anyway, we had a great Holiday spending time with friends and family. I hope everyone else has as much fun as we did. We will be starting back school on January 10th. Thank god it won't be as busy for me as last semester. :) I will actually have time to crack down on my eating and exercising habits to start off the new year right! :) I have to get REALLY fit before I can buy a wedding dress and plan a honeymoon! :)

Well, that's all for now!

I Haven't Updated In A While

Okay. So I haven't Blogged Lately, but for good reasons! I have been very busy. I have had a lot of projects to do for all of my classes(and last week was midterm week). Things are just now finally settling down. I am SO ready to be done with next Tuesday so I can start my fall break. I have still been doing P90x diligently BUT yesterday was my first day to not do it. After doing school work all day yesterday I was just TOO exhausted. But, other than that, I haven't missed a day! So I've been doing pretty good! :) almost to the 30 day marker! Then we have to take more measurements and pictures! I can't wait to see the difference! :) and I can almost fit back into all of my skinny pants! :) well, that's about it for now. I have to go get ready for 2D Design!

A Weekend Trip Home

We went home to Vicksburg this weekend. Friday, We got home in the early afternoon. I went to get my hair cut, and while I was doing that, Jeremy took my engagement ring to Tanner's to be cleaned. (Thanks Babe!) Then we went to dinner with my family and went shopping at the outlet mall with Mom and Meme afterwards. I got some really cute stuff. (thanks Meme!)

Saturday, Me and Mom took Little Sister to the flea market and McDonalds for lunch. Here she is dressed as a "DIVA".

Then, Me, Jeremy, Mom and Lacey all made a trip ot Walmart. We came back and relaxed for a little while before Jeremy, Mom and I went to Jackson. We went to Van's to pick up my TrueBlood comic. Then, we went to the Hudson's, the Mall, and Barnes and Noble. All in all we had a very good time in Jackson.

Today, We had breakfast and Jeremy's mom's house because his Papaw was here from Arkansas. Then we finished our Laundry, packed and left. When we got here, back at the apartment, we both worked on our school work. Then, we went to Walmart before dinner and note school work. Later, I did Kenpo X(which completes week 2 of P90x for me). Yes, it's still kicking my butt. Then I took a shower and got ready for bed. Sarah and Josh came by on the way back into town for a minute to visit, and now I'm ready to sleep, all cuddled up in the bed.

Well, I better go. I have a long day tomorrow.

Football Games and Drivin' Home

Okay. So, yesterday, my morning class was cancelled. I walked around the Quad a few times for exercise after Jeremy went to class and then I went back to the apartment to clean and work on my stuff for class. Then, I went to pick Jeremy up from class. Then we had lunch and he went to class that afternoon, then I went to class that night. After my night class we went to the Football game. Here are a couple pictures of one of my favorite guys (NO IT'S NOT JEREMY) Josh Terry :)

Anyway, after that, I went to sleep, woke up and went to class this morning. Then, we left right after lunch to come home to Vicksburg. I got a haircut, got my ring cleaned and got a dress for the Phi Mu Alpha dinner next week AND I did my P90x tonight. Now I'm worn out and ready for bed. (Right after I watch last night's TVD so I can see what happened! :) Well, That's all for now.

A Long Week That's Half Over

Okay. So I haven't written at all this week so I'm gonna try to get a quick update in. I have turned in my Serial Object Project for 3D this week. Here it is.

Then, last night we went to La Cabana for A Birthday Celebration! Happy Birthday, Brit! :)

And here is a Sarah Green Original.

Then, I had Typography today and turned in my AL designs logo. Here it is up on the wall for critique.

Other than that, I haven't done a lot today. Tonight, I did P90x Day 10! Yay.... Hopefully it will get easier for me next week. It's still whipping my butt. (today was an Ab Ripper X day)

Well, Now I'm ready for bed with my baby. Hopefully I'll have something better to talk about tomorrow.

Pig Pickin'

Yes! It is that time of year again here, at Delta State! Pig Pickin'! This schedule pretty much shows how our weekend has gone.

Last night, we hung out and ate at the PMA Sinfonia tent. Mmmm... Hamburgers and sausage. So Good.

Today, Jeremy's dad came to visit and went with us to the Peprally, BBQ dinner and The Football Game. We won 41-37 against Henderson State. It was a VERY close game, which I've heard his our specially this year.

There's a little snapshot for y'all of the team, band, and cheerleaders when the team was running out of the tunnel. :)

Then, after the game, we came home and did P90x Kenpo X and MAN WAS IT HARD!!

Now we are ready for bed and hopefully we'll have more to talk about tomorrow.

Good Ending To A Good Week

So, overall this has been a pretty successful week. I feel like I've gotten everything done that I needed to and I'm really excited for Jeremy joining Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. All of the brothers have been very nice and welcoming to him. (thanks guys)

Anyway, today was the kick off to the Pig Pickin' weekend! Yay! We watch the soccer games this afternoon. Then we cleaned house and got ready to go hang out with Jeremy's brothers at the PMA tent. We ate hamburgers and hung out. That's about it. Then we came back here and did P90x (which I have done on schedule for the past 5 days!!). All I have to do is Kenpo X tomorrow and I will have completed a while week if it. (because Sunday is the day of rest.) I'm proud of myself.

Other than that, not a lot going on here. I better go get some sleep before Jeremy's dad comes to visit tomorrow. Good Night.

Yesterday was a pretty good day. I went to 2D and got a new project that I think is going to be pretty cool. Then I came home and did the dishes and we had lunch. Then we watch Greek and hung out all afternoon. Then Jeremy went to La Cabana for dinner with Psychology Club. I had dinner at home and then went to Photography. I did some SERIOUS printing last night! I got 3 prints done in 2 hours! (super excited) Then I came home and Jeremy got ready for PMA Sinfonia (induction/first meeting). I did P90x day 2(Cardio X) while he was gone. It was HARD to keep up after Core on the first day, but I got through it.

After that is was time for a nice warm shower and to get into my pjs. :) by that time Jeremy was home from the meeting and we talked for a while and went to bed. Now I'm just up getting ready to make more art today. Hopefully it all goes well.

P90x Take 2!

Okay. So P90x didn't work so well last time because we had a break from school and Who Wants To Exercise Over Their First Break From School?? No one. So, I decided I am gonna do it early in the mornings before school or later at night after school. And Jeremy is going to do whatever it is that he does to get fit and sexy... It doesn't take much(stupid men).

Well, anyway, it was a pretty good Monday. I got an email this morning that Typography was cancelled and I almost cried. (WITH JOY!!) Then I went to 3D Design and work on another tiara and wand. I went back to the apartment to watch Letters to Juliet with Jeremy and have lunch. We had a nice time hanging out and spending time together, but then I had to get down to business and study for my history of photography exam. It was a lot of stuff to remember but I am almost positive I got an A. After that I came home and just watched Greek with Jeremy online and we had dinner and went to class. Then, that is when I did P90x..... Now my butt is whipped and I'm ready for bed. Well that's pretty much it for tonight.

A Visit From Families

We had an eventful Saturday! My Meme, aunt Celeste, and cousin Beth came to visit! AND Jeremy's Sister(with her two kids) and brother(with his wife and baby). So we had a house full! We had to split up and go separately yesterday, which was okay with me. We went to lunch at A La Carte. It was very good, as usual. Then we went to McCarty pottery in Merigold. Meme got me another owl there! :)

Thanks, Meme!
Then we went shopping downtown. We went to almost EVERY store! After that, we went to walmart where I got Jeremy his new favorite thing.

Cereal Containers. :)
For those of you who don't know, Jeremy LOVES cereal and these will keep his cereal fresh.

Anyway, we went back to the apartment to regroup after all of the shopping and to pick up Jeremy because his family had to leave. Beth decided we had to have Lost Dog Pizza Co. for dinner. So, of course, we did. :) Which is fine by me. Their pizza and wings are always good! And it's even better as Cold Pizza breakfast the day after! Mmmmm....

Well after dinner, Meme, Celeste, and Beth had to head home. :( I wish they could have stayed but it was getting late and it's a long drive back.

Well, that's all for now! And thanks for coming to visit Everybody!! :D

So, it's finally Friday! :) My 8:00 was cancelled today, which means I don't have class until 10:00. Typography... Atleast it's my only class of the day. I am so ready for it to be over so I can work of my MANY projects this afternoon and get as much of the work as I can out of the way before my family comes tomorrow! I also printed 2 more pictures last night in the Darkroom! Here are some quick snapshots of them from my iPhone!

Tree Bark (up close)


This picture was the hardest one to do. I used 12 sheets of paper getting it right for the critique!

Well, that's all for now.

Another Busy Week

Okay. So this week has been almost as busy as last week. I've just been working on more projects and I learned to print enlargements of my photos now. Here is a sample of my cotton picture.

I will take a better one when I pick it up off of the drying rack later.

Anyway, other than that, we have been going to as many soccer games as possible. Trying to support the teams. We also have a lot of family coming up this weekend so I have to make sure the apartment is SUPER DUPER clean. The good news is that my 8:00 class on Friday was cancelled! So I have plenty of time to clean and get everything done(homework, etc.) before they come Saturday!

Well, that's all for now.

A Really Really Busy Week!

Okay. So I know I've been a bad Blogger, but I can explain. It has been a very busy week.

I've been working on another Typography project, that I will put pictures of up when I'm done.

I've also been working on using Photoshop in my Computer Graphics class. How's this? Lol

Then, I made a couple Photograms in 2D Design. That was fun. This one is made with a Lightbulb, beads, and Glitter.

After that, I learned to make Contact sheets from my negatives in Basic photo. Here's a little preview!

Not too bad, huh? :) So, like I said, I've been really busy. But now that I'm caught up a little I'm going to try to blog more(again). Well, that's all for now.

P90x Day 1

Okay, so today was our first day of P90x and it was everything that everyone says it is! It wiped our butts today, but in a good way. I know we can stick to this 90 day program! We took our before pictures and measurements today and we are gonna do it!

Anyway, other than that, I got 3 new projects today. One in each of my 3 studio classes. Other than that, there wasn't much going on. I turned my Lamp and Lightbulb in for 3D today. Then I went to Typography and turned in my project there. After that we ate salad for lunch in the union, and MAN were they good!

After lunch I had History of Photography, which is always a VERY interesting class. Then I went back to the apartment and we did P90x. Then we cleaned up and got ready for night class before dinner. We had PB&Js! :)

After that, I went to computer graphics, where we worked on our first project. I am really excited to see how it turns out.

Now, we are back home in bed, tired after our long day. Good night!

Nice Restful Weekend

So, I finished up last week pretty good. I finished my 3D Design project on Friday. It's due tomorrow. It is a Lamp(and matching light bulb) covered in electrical cords. It also has a chain pull made of old wire connector pieces. Here it is!

Then, We went out to dinner on friday night at Lost Dog Pizza.
It was our first time there and it was VERY good! They had a special on a large 2 topping pizza and 6 wings. So, that's what we got. Boneless Hot wings and a Large Pepperoni Pineapple Pizza :) Mmmmm... It was SO good. Then, we rented Cirque De Freak: The Vampire's Assistant from Redbox. We've been wanting to see it but hadn't had a chance. It was good, too. :) Although, it was a little different from the books.

Then, on Saturday, I woke up at 7:00 and finished the final touches on my Typography Project #1. So, here that is! (note: all of the pictures are made out of L's)
After I finished the work on computer, We went to the art building to use the paper cutter to cut out my illustration to put on the board. Then, we went to the Boys' Reserve Team Soccer game. That was fun. We got to sit with Megan and Renee. After that, we hung out with Sarah, Josh R., Josh T., and Brittany at Josh's house. That's about it for Saturday.

Today, we just lounged around the house, and watched The Spy Next Door, which was a very cute movie. Then we did Wii fit a little and now we are getting ready to make/eat dinner and get ready to go watch True Blood at Meg and Keith's house! :) YAY TRUE BLOOD!

Anyway, That's about all for Today.

Blog Slacking Again!

Okay. So I know I've been blog slacking but for good reasons. I have been super busy with school and all of my projects. I decided that I needed to update a little something today just to let everyone know I'm still alive and what I've been up to. So, here is what we did in our 2D design class today. We each did a square charcoal drawing and they all peiced together to make a picure.

This is my square.

And this is our finished product.
It was pretty cool to see how it all came together. Anyway, then we hung out with Renee tonight. We went to an event at Statesmen park to eat out and listen to Blue Mother Tupelo! ;) It was fun, and now we have seen the cat they call Spock. I wonder why. Can you tell?

Hehe :)
Anyway,that's all I've got or tonight.

Visiting and Working

I had a really nice weekend visiting with my mom and sister. They came up Saturday morning and we went to lunch at Hey Joe's. Then, we dropped Jeremy off at home, because he had a migraine, and went to Walmart. I got the cutest doll. Here she is! (and the Owl that goes with her!)

Then, we went to get supplies for my 3D art project. After that, I did my 60 Typography sketches that are due tomorrow! They took forever.

While I did that, mom worked on some ornaments for the flea market. What do you think?

Isn't he the cutest Fighting Okra ever!?

Today, we went to the Warehouse for lunch. Then we came back her to relax. We hung up the picture I won at the Hair School fundraiser that I finally got framed!

I'm so happy with it! It looks so good in the living room.

Then, mom and Lacey had to go home. After they left, we watched The Losers, which was an Awesome movie! After that we did the rest of our homework. Then, we went to dinner with Renee at La Cabana before going to watch True Blood with Meg and Keith! Now we are back home and ready for bed.

Well, I need to rest up for another week of ALOT of work! I'll write more tomorrow.

Busy Busting My Butt

Okay. So I haven't written since wednesday night because I have been SUPER busy trying to get everything done. In addition to the classes I was already taking, I am now taking the Basic Photography class. Which I'm sure I will really enjoy, but it IS another thing to work on projects for. I just hope I can get it all done and not go crazy! On the up side, I only have class until 11:50 on Fridays so yesterday I had a lot of time to get laundry done and work on concepts for my first Typography project.

Anyway.... Today, I am working on cleaning up and getting everything looking nice because my mom and sister, Lacey, are coming to visit and bring the rest of my art supplies and some other stuff. So I better get back to it! I'll update later today or tomorrow with an update on my progress on the project! :) That's all for now!

Worn Out From Working Hard

I am absolutely worn out, because I've been trying my best to pay attention to everything my instructors say and make sure I really commit the concepts to memory. Not to mention making 3 meals a day and cleaning up/doing the dishes. I am exhausted. I just need a little break, Which means it's time for the weekend! :) but I'm not quite there yet.

Anyway, I took a quick picture in my Computer Graphics class today to share, to show kinda what we are doing by watching on the projector and learning to do different things with Adobe Illustrator.

Well, that's all I can write for now. I'm too tired to think of anything else.

Day 2

Today was a good day. I went to my class at 9:25, 2D Design I, and found out that my teacher was out of town until tomorrow. That means that we got out syllabus from her T.A. And went home! This is good in the way that I got to go home and do the dishes and all of my classwork for tomorrow, but bad in the way that I didn't really get to find anything out about the class yet! :/ well, anyway, like I said, I went home and did the dishes, and finished my work for Typography. By then it was time for me to go back and get Jeremy for lunch, because we road together. After lunch, he went back to class and I did my History of Photography reading and questions. Then I had some spare time before Jeremy got out so I decided the inside cover of my Plain Black Typography Sketchbook could use some personalization. So here it is!

Ps- For those of you that don't know, I love OWLS! :)

Anyway, after I picked Jeremy up, we were both done for the day and we watched tv and did Wii fit! (I lost 0.4 more pounds) Then I made spaghetti for us and Sarah & Josh. :) It was good to see them and chat about the first 2 days of school. Now we are ready for bed and I, yet again, have an 8:00 class tomorrow, so I'll write about that then.

First Day As A Graphic Design Major!

Today was my first day of classes and I'm exhausted! :) Happy but Exhausted! I really enjoyed my classes today. My day started off with an 8:00 class, 3D Design I. Then, after that, I went to Typography. We got an assignment and talked a little about what to expect from the class then he let us go. Then, Jeremy came and picked me up to go eat lunch at home. After a nice lunch with Jeremy, he dropped me back off for my History of Photography class. I think that class is going to be very interesting. After that class I went back home to relax and work a little on my Typography assignment. Then, I made us some dinner and we went to our night classes at 6:00. Jeremy has Intro to Philosophy and I have Computer Graphics. We talked about our class and I'm really excited for what I'm going to learn this semester! Well now we are back home after a fast trip to Walmart and a Skype call with Little Sister. :) So, now I'm REALLY tired and I better try to get some sleep because I have another class tomorrow! :) I'll write about that one then.

Soccer and Sarah

Today was a long day full of fun. I have an 8:00 am class tomorrow so I'm going to try to make this post short and sweet. We sat around most of the day watching One Tree Hill and finished up season 1. I did some laundry and tried to read as much of The Host as i could before Jeremy woke up this morning. After that is was all TV. Then, when 3 o'clock rolled around, we went to the DSU girls soccer game! I got a few pictures but I guess I'll just put one little snap shot up on here.
Then, we came home and got ready to go to Sarah's Birthday dinner at La Cabana. :) I have a couple good pictures from there too, but they were on my iPhone because my pocket camera was messing up.

Then, we left from there to meet Renee at the apartment and go to watch True Blood at Meg's house! :) This week True Blood had the BEST ending of a tv show ever! haha It was great. But, now we are back home and I just got done taking my shower and putting my Jammies on. So, I better go ahead and go to sleep so I can be up for that early class tomorrow. I'll post about my first day tomorrow.

Losing Weight and Feeling Great

So, I just thought I would Blog a little bit about what Jeremy and I have been doing for the past week to lose weight. We both got this app for our iPhones to count calories. If you put in your weight and your goal weight and tell it how many pounds a week you want to lose it will tell you how many calories you can eat a day to reach your goal. It's called Lose It! and it's working. We started doing it last saturday and It's been a week today! We got on the Wii Fit and weighed our selves the 1st day. Then we got on again on monday. It said I'd lost just over 2 pounds already just by watching what I was eating and NOT SNACKING! Then I got on again today and it said I'd lost another 2 pounds. I was like NO WAY! but anyway other than that we've been doing the Wii Fit a little when friends(like Sarah and Josh) come over. And today we biked 3 miles to Bear Pen Park (Granted I got so hot we had to call Josh to come get us....) :) but maybe when it gets cooler we can try again. It felt great to do something active today.

Other than that, we sat around and watched One Tree Hill all day again today. We are almost done with season one. Then we'll be on to season two. Well, so far that's pretty much it for today. Nothing that exciting here. We're just trying to get everything together and ready for school to start Monday. I'm very nervous and excited. I'm sure I'll write about the first day. Well, That's all for now. I have a feeling we are going to get ready for bed VERY soon.

The Longest "Movie" Ever

Today, we got up and watched one "movie" all day. It was a special that came on Hallmark channel in the 90s a little bit at a time(like 30 minutes to an hour) once a week for a couple months. It's called The 10th Kingdom. I bought it about a year ago at blockbuster on clearance because I used to always try to tell people about it and they thought I was making it up. I could never remember the name, but one day I saw it there and recognized it!

Anyway, it's almost 7 hours long, so that's pretty much what we did all day besides eat breakfast, lunch and dinner.

After we finally finished The 10th Kingdom, we tried to go watch the meteor shower but we could t find anywhere dark enough to see it! :( But it was fun trying! :)

Now, we are back at the apartment, ready for bed after another THRILLING day in Cleveland, MS. :) That's all for today.

Birthday Cake and Bowling

Today, we Got up and ate breakfast. Then we watched some more movies. After that, we went to campus to get our parking decals. I decided to take a picture of the "ART" outside of the art building where I will be most of the time.

After our little excursion, we went back to the apartment for lunch. We watched some more tv and took a nap. (yes a nap. Because we are old foggies... Lol) Also, my new Mark. make up for school came in the mail today!! :)

Anyway, after our nap, we got up and went to get Sarah an ice-cream cake for her birthday! :) she was REALLY surprised! We played some Wii and decided that we should go REAL bowling, so we got in the car and went. We got there an realized I'd lost my wallet.... Thank God, Jeremy went to search for it while we warmed up and found it at the baskin robins where we got the cake! We had fun bowling, even though none of us dis very well. :) Here is a little picture of my Bowling attire.

I know, right? Nice. :) well, now we are back home, safe and sound. Ready for bed. Another day of "who knows what" tomorrow. :)

Laundry Day and A Nature Walk!

So, today has pretty much been a regular day. I woke up this morning and ate breakfast. Then, I got ready and went to do the laundry. It only took me about an hour or so and there were 3 LOADS! I feel better now that that's done. Then after that we watched When in Rome while we ate lunch. It was a REALLY sweet movie. I'm really glad we watched it.

Anyway, after that we watched I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. We've seen it a million times, but it never gets old. Then, we ate some dinner and straightened up the apartment. After that, Jeremy decided we needed to leave the apartment before we get "cabin fever" and go crazy. So, we went to Bear Pen Park to walk around the pond and just relax together. We got some good pictures on my iPhone. Next time I am going to take a REAL camera. :)

The Ducks (The thought we had food)

The Most Turtles I have EVER Seen in A Pond!

The Gaggle of Geese

Jeremy's New Pet River Rat, George (lol)

Now, after all of our outdoor/nature excitement, we are back at the apartment. I am Blogging and Jeremy is watching the end of the USA-Brazil game. All is well in the Leist-Lawrence Household. Well that's all for today.

We had a really nice relaxing day today. We also got a lot done. Jeremy's dad came to see our place and to bring our bikes. So, we went to lunch at Hey Joe's! (Who BTW have the most awesome rigged up bathroom! :) )

Anyway, then we came back to the apartment and hooked up our internet! :) I'm so excited to have DSL now so we can use our computers AND use our phones a lot easier in the house! Then, we went to Walmart... Again! :/ and rented yet ANOTHER Red Box movie. Today we got Bounty Hunter. It was super funny but still very sweet. We really liked it. Now, we are ready for bed!

We had so much fun last night. Then, today we got up and cleaned the dishes we used last night and got ready. We hung out with Megan, got our books, and went to Walmart again for a few things we forgot. Now we are back home. Watching a movie. It's nice to be all moved in. We'll update more once we have more to talk about. Thanks for reading. More Later!

A Weekend Full of Parties

So, this weekend was full of partying for us. Friday, we went to a cookout at Matt's house. It was so fun. There was badminton, volleyball, and a slip'n'slide! (not to mention a lot of AMAZING food) and here's a picture of the group having fun!

Then, Saturday we went to Laiken's 4th birthday party! :) She had such a good time and we enjoyed seeing her open her presents and decorate her cake with ALL of the Disney princesses! :)

And here's the birthday girl sticking her finger in "her" cake! Lol

And then she got in the Jumpy to have fun before going swimming. :)

Well, that's about it for our weekend. We are gonna be super busy these next few days packing to move. I'm just hoping we can fit it all in our cars! :) well, that's about it for now.

More Later!
