A Not So Wild Wednesday

Hi all!

Monday's midterm went well. Tuesday's presentation was a success. Wednesday, nothing productive whatsoever. Tuesday night we had a sorority date function called "Draft-A-Date" that put me over the edge. I brought the bf, obvi. Isn't he cute?!?! We dressed up in army and camo and went out with all our friends and their drafted dates for such a fun night. We boogied down! (And bf claims he hates to boogie.) haha. So much fun that I had to spend most of my day recovering in the lovenest. I watched some darling episodes of A Baby Story on TLC and some old Reba re-runs. I felt up to par around 2:00, just in time for me to get ready for babysitting. Luckily the rest of my week is not filled with too much school work. Tomorrow hopefully it will warm up so I can lay out before my big weekend and Katie (another love nester) and I will grab manis and pedis in the afternoon. Then Friday we are packing up and heading to Savannah for bf's Fraternity Formal called Old South. Can't wait for some quality time with the boy and all his buddies. Although we have not been together for very long, I find myself liking him more and more every day. Luckily, Katie is going to Old South with her bf too so I will have a potty partner and we can get ready together. The weather is supposed to be beautiful, and I have always heard that Savannah is a great city. I'll be sure to post pics when we get back.
The count down is on for Spring Break '08...8 days and counting! Woohooo! Key West, here we come!
Boogie down yall,

Happy Sunny Day!

Hi all,
Hope everyone had a great weekend. I know I did! Friday night kicked off the weekend with a fabulous Girl's Night Out. We were all so excited for our first night out wearing dresses this Spring! Most who saw us four girls boogie down to the 80's Tunes may have been scared off, but those who joined in with us had the time of their lives! Our boyfriends will never leave town without us again... We proceeded to drink $2 pitchers of cheap beer and took over 80 pictures throughout the evening. The night came to an end when a sweet fraternity boy drove us home to our sorority house so that we didn't have to walk all that way in our cute high heels!

Saturday was a relaxing rainy day when two of the love nesters went out of town for the night. They left me and Becky-Bear to a fun night of Moe's burritos, Old Navy deals, and Target must-haves. These are some of my fabulous finds. (Stacy and Clinton would be so proud!)
Shopping is limited around these parts of town, so the girls and I have to get creative in our searches for the perfect Spring Break staples. Key West better watch out, they won't know what hit 'em after the love nesters leave town! If our latest Girl's Night is any indication of what might go on in the Keys, I'm going to need to rest up before that trip... At least I will look fabulous while I'm there!

Today was a sunny day for laying out by the pool (in my new Old Navy black bikini) after church and a lunch date with the boy. So happy he is back in town. Now the girls and I are off to take our friend, Miffy, to dinner in celebration of her one-year anniversary with her boyfriend, Mike, who is overseas in the Marines. Congrats Miffy! You are the strongest girl I know!
Tomorrow is my first midterm exam of the semester, so wish me luck!

Boogie Down,

Hi all

Welcome to Preppy Gator! I am so excited to share my life and my favorite things with everyone. I am a 21 year old sorority girl studying to become an elementary school teacher at the University of Florida. I live in my sorority house in a room called the "Love Nest" with my 3 best friends. I love shopping, scrapbooking, and all things pink, preppy and fabulous. I love to boogie and go out with my friends. Since we are losing one of the love nesters in May who is actually graduating and moving into the real world, we are trying to live it up in our last semester all together. I am going to have all the nesters posting updates on Preppy Gator as well so that we all stay in touch by documenting our shenanigans. This is the first time in our 3 years of being best friends that we all have boyfriends, so the love nest is full of love right now with all the withering roses our bf's sent us for Valentine's Day (My favorite day of the year). awww.
I am also a babysitter 3 times a week for a family with 4 adorable children. The tots are all under the age of 7 and so much fun to be around. I look forward to sharing silly stories about my many adventures with them. My favorite shows are on TLC and I will openly admit that I enjoy living vicariously through the mom I babysit for. I am originally from South Florida and plan on moving back to teach whenever I get around to graduating and leaving Titletown, USA. I live and breathe Gator football in the fall and shop year-round for Orange & Blue accessories.
Off to the gym now...Workin on my fitness for Spring Break 08! woohoo!

Boogie Down,
