February 2010

electric blue

Wow, 2010 has been good to me so far. I’ve been kept busy with so many exciting things! Seeing Nate Ruess’ new band, Fun. was absolutely amazing. Haley and I waited in line outside for a half hour to get inside. We naively assumed the venue wouldn’t be packed and we couldn’t have been more wrong. Tons of people. Tons o fans of the Format and now of Fun. It felt more like a sing-a-long rather than listening to someone perform. The crap drive to Ann Arbor, the wait in the blizzard conditions and the sweatiness I experienced was all worth experiencing Nate Ruess’ passion again.

My Friday work day was also fun. About four times I year I coordinate something called a Tech Tour where we take college IT students around on a bus to different IT companies with super cool, laid back cultures and then take the students to tour a cool housing option in the Lansing area. I pretty much experience the Tech Tour just as a student would except that I’m freaking out about timing and schedules–we have a tight time schedule to adhere to! I went to my first MSU hockey game too and was in good company.

I bought these shoes last week and I think they will make their debut to the Lansing crowd tonight at the Addy Awards Gala. I need some pop of color in my outfits and these pair of boots spice up my simple black dress.

From the Fun. show:
The jumping bassist is from Grand Rapids and met his roomies that came to support him. They dressed in plaid and were awesome.

all business

I woke up super early to attend the Lansing Breakfast Club at the Impression 5 Science Center to eat food and make slime before work. While it was worth getting up early, seeing friends and meeting new people, I’m now feeling quite exhausted. I have such a busy week this week! It’s all fun though.. I’m participating in an advanced photoshop workshop and then I go to see the band Fun. in Ann Arbor, Mich. with Haley! She raided my closet and now we both have our loose fitting outfits selected to wear and dance in while Nate Ruess serenades us.

I purchased this skirt back in December to go with this vintage top I bought back in November and was waiting for the perfect event to debut it. Since I was attending an event today to hear presentations from the governor candidates with a bunch of old white guys, I thought this would be quite fitting. It’s not often I wear a pencil skirt, but I like the geometric details on it and since it’s grey, it will go with just about anything.

And my friend just released his EP yesterday on itunes. I’m super pumped for him and super pumped to see more and more of the photos I took be used for his promotional stuff. Yay!

from the weekend

This weekend was fabulous. The highlight was shaving my friend Tom’s back on Saturday. I’m not sure why I find it so entertaining for myself. Perhaps it’s because it’s slightly reminiscent of my horse showing days where I would trim my horse for show or maybe I just have a twisted sense of fun. Probably the latter. He threw a Jersey Shore themed party in celebration of his birthday and with the tight graphic muscle tee, he thought he might look more convincing if he looked less like a werewolf. I stopped over at Tom’s early to get some photos of him. I’ll be posting some of those ridiculous photos below.

Also in exciting news, I’m going to Philadelphia April 1-4 to visit Kim and Melissa from Crowded Closet. Kim lives in Philly and Melissa lives in NYC. But she will be making a special trip to town so we can be reunited! I’m counting down the days…

I just bought this tee from H & M. I had to run to Ann Arbor on Thursday with Haley to pick up our tickets to see Fun. and figured since I was in the vicinity of some good malls, why not make a stop?

Before Tom’s Jersey Shore makeover:
And After. Tom’s goal was to look like Pauly D…I think he succeeded.
This kills me…hahaha
My friend, Matt trying to pull off the Situation..
Serious pose time with Tom

Love my friends.

sunshine friday

I got this cropped jacket for NYC and I ended up not wearing it. I’m really digging this outfit though, despite another hearty chuckle from my boss lady, Kate, at work today.

I spent this afternoon attending a speed networking event at Michigan State University. Sort of like speed dating, but for people to meet potential employers. I don’t quite yet feel old enough to be on the other side of the table considering I meet so many grad students my age and I’ve only been out of undergrad for two years. I also met people who have more experience than me working on their masters asking me for advice. I was thinking, dude, you should give me some advice. I met a ton of IT students that I’m going to recruit to participate in our Tech Tour next week and I did meet some students who would make great interns. I just don’t like losing the ones I have. I love my interns. Naomi and Becky, you hear me! Never leave!

This tee is the most versatile shirt I own and I wear it at least a couple times a week..under a hoodie or more dressed up like today. I love you, Alexander Wang.

My dirty shoes! I like the zipper that are on these leggings–fun little detail!

This week went by SO fast. Time to get ready for dinner and drinks! Have a lovely weekend!
