a case of TMI; and Ole Miss

So here is the deal y’all.  I so intended on taking lots of pictures while in Oxford but a dreadful visit from you know who hit.  And the kicker is it was during my test.  I felt like a bunch of tiny small humans were beating my stomach up.  For all my friends that know me in real life, I was thinking and wanting to say aloud “ouch my tilted uterus”{said more like oooouch. my tiiiiiiiilted uuuuuuuterusssss}… Not the most pleasant thing to happen while you need to concentrate on a very important exam.  So after the test, I went to lunch at Bottletree, then crash landed in my bed where I ate junk and passed the heck on out.  I should of known she was about to hit … a few days before I started crying over a rap song.  I was in my car, completely moved by a rap song to the point of tears.  Not my proudest PMS moment, but certainly not my worst.  Anyway, the pictures aren’t great.  I really wanted everyone to look at Oxford and think “what an adorable little town, I want to visit” … but you may just think its filled with donkeys and random fields with tubs.  My apologies.  
*In consolation, here’s a post I did a while back on where I spent my grad school years.*

*in between oxford & memphis – a field filled with bath tubs??  something about it is so distinctly southern*
*went to see my cute little sister dance at derby days … a tradition that makes my undergrad experience feel kinda boring (: *
Now I’m back home with Lucille, my guard dog I stole from my parents. 
She’s keeping me company these days (:
Today marks one month until JB & I reunite in Switzerland!  
Also marks the first time I slept past 10 in a very.very.long time.  
Hope you all have as restful of a Sunday as I am

    I definitely feel your pain- I get horrid cramps and have to take 2 prescription pills and 2 regular pills just to survive! My worst moment? Probably getting angry at my boyfriend for quitting a game of Words with Friends because he was losing (& we were sitting beside each other), not puttig an empty pop can away& one other thing. I remember there were 3 things, each one more ridiculous than the next and we ended up laughing over my stupidness for the night haha

    I went home a couple weekends ago and was graced with my beautiful time of the month during my sister's wedding shower! I was in complete misery over my cramps when my sister decided it was the appropriate time to remind me that some people don't even GET cramps. Not only was I in immense amounts of pain, but then I was cursing the lucky people who manage to breeze by, cramp free!

    By the way, your pictures are beautiful anyway. There's nothing quite like the south to cure anything…even cramps. xo

    i often think the same exact thing when mother nature brings the midget to stomp upon my innings and chew on what feels like my lower intestinal region. You are in good company girl. And the pictures are lovely. THANK you for sharing and I pray your exam turned out great.

    My great-grandmother had a bathtub sitting out on her side porch.

    What? That's totally normal.

    Also. I may or may not have cried once when I was out of coca-cola. It was just really good, ok?
