I'll miss you, summer!

Me, in my room

Hi! Wednesday was a lot of fun- met up with my girl Ava, who I've known since she moved to my school from a private school, and before that, London! She came over while a Phineas and Ferb marathon was on, bahahah. I wore one of the outfits I posted earlier this week, but this picture is of me that day. First we walked around my neighborhood for a little bit, then we met a friend for some drinks(slurpies... [:) and then went out to a japanese restaurant in the next town over.

Ramune, Japanese Soda!

A few months ago I went to Pearl River, an asian department store in SoHo, and had a Japanese Soda- Ava ordered one and I followed suit. They're these really cute little bottles of Sprite-esque soda, and you have to press a cap into the opening to release a marble so you can drink! It's so cute, and It's a good serving size- just a little bigger than an old-fashioned glass Coca-Cola bottle. I had avocado rolls and ava had those as well, in addition to shrimp rolls. We also had yummy miso soup, which I haven't had in ages! I love Japanese food.

We were walking around my neighborhood and just sort of catching up, when we caught sight of this hydranga plant- Now, if you remember, a few weeks ago I went to work with my neighbor, a party designer and planner. So I've seen hydrangas at their peek and am spoiled. But look at this plant- all the other flowers are drooping while one blue one shoots up. SO DEPRESSING!

Sad little hydranga!

But anyway, it was a very good time had by all, we'll have to do it again soon! But yesterday, I went to get a manicure with another friend to this cute place near my house- I always go for a light pink on the nails because it matches everything. I go WILD on my toes though! And afterwards we decided to take my very small, precious turtle (named SQUIRTLE!) outside. He's a red-eared slider, which means he is an aquatic turtle with red ears. He's a little bigger than the size of a quarter!

This is me and my baby Squirtle!

After she left, I went to what we call the "uptown" part of my neighborhood, saw some old friends, and met my gal Amanda; this blonde, cute girl, who just spent her entire summer with family in Greece! We then went to my boyfriend's house and had a get-together with other friends and spent the night watching movies and eating quesedillas. She's such a sweetheart, she brought me back a cute little box from Greece!

Oh, and as promised, here are two of my purchases from the other day:

Steve Madden floral dress, ridiculously cheap at a boutique in town

White necklace from Charlotte Russe

What did you guys do on one of the last days of summer?

Sounds like an afternoon full of fun. Sushi is my secret obsession. I had sushi for lunch twice this week. They have it on campus for an economical price.

Summers are special for a variety of reasons. They are fun, and sometimes sad, but always unforgettable.

At the end of each summer I make sure to write a conclusion memo about it. That is my way of always remembering the hot days, and never forgetting the love affairs, the short rain showers in the middle of the afternoon, and the great adventures that mark this season.

From the American South I wish you well as this season approaches its end.

It is time to welcome the mild winds of fall...

Buenos deseos,

Your turtle is so cute! I hope it doesn't smell bad! The only reason I say that is because I saw some turtles and could've touched them but they smelled so bad that I didn't even want to get near them! I am assuming your turtle doesn't smell bad because you look pretty comfortable holding him! I love turtles! much talk on turtles! On my last day of summer before school..I just went shopping for clothing. Nothing really special. I want to drink Japanese soda!! Sounds like you have been enjoying yourself!
