Sugar Glider

It's almost spring, but I'm holding onto the last bit of fall and winter that I can. Come March I'm already wishing for fall to roll around, and tend to hold onto all of my "winter wear" until it gets too hot and I need to finally put them away. I read a tweet the other day that said that the person was already wishing for fall, and I could totally relate.

I recently picked up this Levi's cape on super sale and already can't wait for it to be a part of my fall/winter 2012 wardrobe (ok, I still might try and wear it this spring/summer!). I'm kind of obsessed with how cozy it is, and how easy it is just to throw on when I'm in in a rush or just need another layer. I swear, layers are my best fashion friend!

Scott has always been a fan of layers as well. I remember being 18 together and him wearing a sweet yellowish striped sweater layered over a button-up shirt. I'm pretty sure I have a silly photo of us together when he was wearing it! His hair was sooo long back then too!

I told Scott I slightly reminded myself of a flying squirrel while wearing this cape. He thought a Sugar Glider better fit the description! Haha

This morning Scott and I are putting everything we have into studying for a written essay test (he), and working on a research proposal (she). Sometimes school feels like a never ending cycle of crazy, but I know that come a year from now it will almost be over. Sometimes the grad school blues get the best of me and I question what I've gotten myself into, and then I remember that when I'm done I'll come out of this with more knowledge than I went into it with, and will be walking away with my third degree. That in itself is enough to keep me going! However, whenever I think about writing a dissertation, or doing an applied project a cold sweat comes over me and I panic. I still have time though! I will think about that aspect of graduating a little later.

What are you up to today? How are you feeling about school right now? XO
