Weekend Woes

My weekend was pretty lack luster.
Despite me flying to Boston to meet up with one of my favorite people,
road tripping to New Jersey and New York,
spending 2 days house hopping and even playing 
"Who dressed the least appropriate for this weather?",
my weekend was pretty dull.

And now I'm sick.
I have a mild case of Bronchitis.
And mixed in with my asthma its not a good time.
So now I'm back, at work (because its not contagious) hiding my horrendous 
coughs in the work room with the copy machine.

I haven't really had to desire to post, but I did make the promise to myself I would at least post once a week until my life decides it wants to get back on track.

Now I'm off to go get my car serviced.
It decided not to start yesterday when I wanted to go to Urgent Care.


Hope every has a much better week than I am starting to have!

UNCC Homecoming

Homecoming weekend was amazing! 
Or as I like to put things "Off the Chain"! (yes I still say that)
There was so much going on and so many people.
I loved it all!

But I do have to say that tailgating is such an exhausting ordeal that there really is no choice 
but to drink once you are all settled and finally enjoying yourself.

I was in charge of coordinating the whole thing; 
making sure everyone was assigned to bring something, finding a spot, and coordinating gear.

Aside from a few setbacks and a some time issues 
we managed to end up on the craziest side of the parking lot.

Just one side of the tailgate!

So many drinks, food, and loud music. 
It was hard not to get caught up in the madness.
We provided a tasty that we cleverly named NORM-NDY (Our schools mascot is named Norm).
We never finished the 2 coolers we brought..

The funny part was once the game started this whole section did not clear out for another 2 hours.
Apparently all of the alumni (including us) did not plan to go to the game.
We just wanted to celebrate finally getting football and reuniting with friends from years ago.

My best friend Nicole and my sorority sister Sabrina. baby's first tailgate! 
No she didn't drink but that doesn't mean she cant join in on the fun!

Shirts I made for us! Reppin our Class!

Communications Majors reunited!

I can't believe I graduated 5 years ago. Sometimes it feels longer. 
But it was really interesting to see alumni who graduated BEFORE me turn up at the tailgate. 
Makes me not feel so bad about wanting to show up for a few more weekends

Until next year!

Blog Catch-Up

Its been about 2 WEEKS since I last wrote a post and I have to say its been quite eventful.
But in my coffee induced euphoria this morning I thought it was finally time to crack down and get back.

So to play catch up I'm making it as easy on myself as possible. Lovely list!

1. Birthday times! The 9th was my birthday and I have to say the week of events made turning 27 feel pretty awesome. If you have been following me on Instagram you probably have already seen the debauchery (okay maybe not full on debauchery) that ensued. Strip club, drunkaoke (yes that is a real thing), and a visit from the parentals. No birthday would be complete without a argument with the ex boyfriend and a cupcake. I'll do a separate post with more awesome details.

2. UNC Charlotte's first football homecoming. This was such an amazing experience. It overlapped the visit from my parents so needless to say my weekend was very busy. An alumni bar crawl started the festivities and it ended with a tailgating extravaganza that had me feeling like it was 2008 again (my Jose cuervo induced time of my life) Truly a reunion of sorts. This is the only time where it is okay for all my ex boyfriends to be corralled and it be okay. As long as I have my 49er punch to distract me!

3. I am actually writing this post in the teachers lounge of my new job! As a nice little birthday present I was hired as a teacher assistant for an elementary school. I interviewedTuesday and was hired Wednesday (woot woot)  Pro: full time status and benefits (hells yeah!)oh how the priorities change as an adult (well adult-ish) Con: now a 30 minute commute and a punch in time of 715. I am the epitome of not a morning person so it should be interesting when the children experience me without coffee. Should be a good time. Ill definitely do a post about my first week here. Very interesting to say the least.

4. Your girl is moving up in the world. And by up I mean off the floor. Thanks to ikea and the parentals no longer wanting me to sleep in my house like a crackhead (not a nice image) I am now the proud owner of a queen size pillow of heaven. My room no longer looks like a squatter made camp in our house and brought a whole bunch of shoes with them. As a hardcore sleeper and lover of naps (since 1986) I am so happy to be off of a futon and enjoying slumber like the rest of my roommates. My lower back pain can suck it.

Those are pretty much the most important things to touch on. Of course there will be more elaborate posts once my body gets used to operating from 6am to midnight (having 2 jobs is kicking my butt right now). But for now its whenever I can squeezed some time in.

Have a great rest of the week!

Birthday Wish List!

My birthday is tomorrow!
I'm really excited that its finally here.

This week is extremely busy: dinners, work, karaoke, bar crawls, and tailgating.
Jam packed just in time for the celebration!

In the midst of all of this I wanted to treat myself this month so I wanted to share my wish list.
Some of these things I plan on getting myself no questions asked.
But others I hope that my friends and family check it out and get some ideas 
*cough* *cough*

The parentals will be here this weekend and that probably is the most exciting part about it all. I haven't seen my parents for a birthday in probably 10 years.
No joke.
College, parents living in Japan, and me moving around like crazy was the cause of that.
But now that they are in VA its no probably for them to come visit :)

But it is forewarned that I this will probably be the only post this week! I haven't gotten a chance to recover from my weekend at Virginia Tech and now birthday festivities have begun so next time I'm on here I'll probably be recapping.
So every have a great week!

Michael Kors Saffiano Tote: 
I am on a MISSION to get this purse. 
I don't have 400 dollars at the moment but its Royal Blue!!!
I love everything in this color!
Please please please!

 Black Toms:
I know its really crazy that I don't have a pair yet. 
Seems like everyone does already. 
But since Fall is here (right now the weather is perfect for them) 
Days that I dont wear boots (which probably wont be that many) and I need to put something on quick.
"Goes with everything" black is what I want, but I would love some silver sparkly ones too!

 Wonder Woman phone Case:
I can never have too many. 
But I only have one and when I use it I feel like I am using a Galaxy note.
It makes my phone so large!!
I need something sleek to showcase the awesomeness that is her.

I know I have a problem, but my legs look fabulous in them and I can't stop myself.
I specifically would like these Mulki from Shoedazzle, but pretty much all shoes are welcomed.

I Whip My Hair...

Happy Friday!

I'm very excited about this weeked; 
I'm heading to Blacksburg, VA in a couple hours to enjoy some Virginia Tech Homecoming festivities. Everyone keeps asking me why I'm going... 
*cue Damian* "She doesnt even go here!"
I spent lots of undergrad weekends there and some of my closest friends went to VT,
 so any chance I get to meet-up with them I will. 
Plus I get to do that 2 birds with 1 stone thing and take care of some sorority stuff as well.
As far as packing for the trip to VA I need mainly one thing.

Elastic headbands so I can tame my new do!
What do you think?

I decided braids were the way to go!
They are fun for the Fall and I'm channeling my inner Dionne.
 I'm excited to play around with styles! Loving the bun so far!
After this weekend I hope to have more full length pics of my long locks!

Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

*birthday is in 5 days*
I think my backthatazzup songs are appropriate for the weekend!

New Hair!

I always tend to do a big change in the Fall. 
This year its my hair.

I'm bringing something back that has been gone for awhile now.
It's a risk that I'm willing to take.

I need to mix it up....I'm going to be 27!

I'll reveal it later this week!

Or if you follow me on Instagram (@missnewbourgie) you will be the first to see!

and yes I made this epic...
as if anyone really is dying to know what I changed my hair to...
*shrugs* oh well!
