Super Sunday

This week, I'm loving...

This embroidery! :)

This adorable heart garland! (One of my awesome residents actually made this for me, it looks great around my door!)


Would like this shirt very much so. :)

I know this is so short. I had barely any time to prepare this. As well as barely any sleep last night. (The life of an RA)

Thanks for visiting, I just found a new thrift store in the area that I will try to go to tomorrow. 

Toodle-oo :)

Game Review: Lego Harry Potter Yrs 1-4

For Christmas, I got this game and I love it! :) I'm a Harry Potter fanatic and this game is awesome! Heres why:

-Definitely stays true to the HP franchise (i.e, music, hogwarts, storyline)
-Lots of mini games, achievements, levels, and mini-quests
-The characters are cute. Theres no dialog so they make they cute little noises for emotions. I think its funny :)
-It's not a continuous play game, its levels. So it saves more often and you can go back and replay favorite levels

-If you haven't seen movies that the Lego games are based on, the storyline makes no sense. 

Overall: This game rocks. Buy it and love it :)

Thrift Find :: Christmas!

I came across this beauty of a cookie jar last month.

(The wallpaper is just stunning huh? -____- )

It needed a good washing but seriously, for $3 how could I pass this up? I love it!

A beautifully organized craft room :)

2012 Goals

My Goals for 2012:

- Exercise 5 days a week :: This past semester I went probably only 3-4 days/week. 
- Complete the Warrior Dash :: Bitchin.
- Brush teeth twice a day :: I forget sometimes and would love even pearlier whites
- Set aside study time for each class :: I need to do better this semester and have more efficient study habits.
- Make healthy eating choices :: Especially in that dining hall!
- Open my etsy shop :: And finally post an item!! I have one ready. I just need to price, photograph, and post.
- Get my CNA license :: I need to get this, to get a CNA job, to get experience, to get into grad school
- Save money and budget better :: I'm broke. I need to start saving to a place to live around the time of grad school when I might not be working. I opened a 2nd savings and I'm going to save in there, then open a 2 year CD.
- Put bulletins up on and on time :: My RA weakness. Bulletin Board. Plan them sooner and put up early/on time!
- Stay on top of laundry :: Try to do it weekly and not let it pile up, Sarah. -__- I tend to do laundry when I'm out of clothes.
- Keep a cleaner room :: Take stuff home, throw stuff out, put things away, and STAY organized. Another weakness of mine :P
- Run a 5K :: Sign up and compete!
- Plan a month of blog posts :: That way if I get busy, I'll still have something. :)
- Read a little every day :: I'm ashamed to say I didn't read at all last semester. I'm currently reading Pride & Prejudice and want to read a little each day to continue my long reading list next semester.

What I'm Watching

(I haven't been watching many movies lately so I'll share with you some of my favorite TV Shows!)

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

My brother and his friends told me to watch this show and I was skeptical. I thought My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic would be a silly kids show (and yes it is) but its awesome. It's by the maker of Powerpuff Girls (So you know its good haha) and it's quirky and has amazingly lovable chracters. So seriously, I recommend watching the episodes on YouTube. Also this show is actually getting kind of popular, many males (15-25) are watching this show and calling themselves Bronies. Haha But overall, its awesome check it out :)

The Big Bang Theory

I'm sure you've heard of this show, it is getting quite popular. But my whole family has been watching since Season 1, and if you haven't seen it yet, you need to! It's SO funny! The characters are memorable and everyone's favorite (Sheldon) is played by Jim Parsons who is hilarious. The chemistry (haha) of the characters and general atmosphere of the show is intelligent, quirky, and fun. 

How I Met Your Mother

The only way you couldn't have seen this show yet (at least once) was if you dont have cable because its very popular and on all the time. However, it deserves to be. Told in stories from How I (Ted Mosby) Meets Your (His kids) Mother, it heart warming, hilarious, and a great show. I had seen many episodes on TV but in no particular order but lately, since its on Netflix, I've started watching the seasons correctly and appreciating the show for its greatness even more! If you haven't seen it, I'm shocked and you need to.

My Boys

Another "friends hanging out show" but I loved it. Unfortunately they took it off the air but it got a solid four seasons in. It was so funny and the characters are memorable. It also stars Jim Gaffigan who is a stand up comedian, also very funny. The four seasons are on Netflix so watch them!

What are some of your favorite shows?

Game Review: Plants vs. Zombies

This game didn't work on my Macbook so I bought it for the XBOX & I love it!

It was around $20 for the Microsoft Points but it's totally worth it. Incase you're not familiar with the game, its set in an apocalypse where you have to protect your house from planting! Some plants shoot peas, squirt poison, and form blockades. You need to strategically place the different plants to defend your house from the waves of zombies. Sounds weird? No. It's awesome. Here's what I loved:

-Super cool mini games
- Co-op! (Play with friends)
-Huge variety of plants (much more than the demo)
-I think the different zombies are cool, they all have characteristics
-Tons of fun!

(Game Play)

-I can't play it for more than 30 min or so. Levels are all the same game play, get kind of bored
-Music will get stuck in your head. (haha)

Overall, I love this game and I'm trying to convince my friends to play with me! If you're on XBOX Live, friend me and we can play together: sarahmcrosby484
