what i know for sure.

Some things I have learned so far in my big-girl life... (yes, it's only been two weeks but...)

I can tell you:

1. The cuter the shoe...the deadlier they usually are.

2. I have officially boarded the career choo-choo train. Things are going a little slow right now but work is all I can think about...

3. I have become very addicted to my blackberry. Wait, crackberry? Actually, come to think of it--that happened before 'big girl life'.

4. I am excited about making new friends at work!

5. It's important to aviod I-84 as much as possible duing the hours of 7-8:30 a.m. and 5- 6:30 p.m.

6. Not only is caffine essential to my energy levels but it also puts me in an excellent mood.

7. Now I can understand why my mom comes home every 6 months and says "I need a vacation"....

8. Paying bills and organizing things like doctor and dentist appointments can be a very daunting task.

9. I am very much a routine/scheduling kind-of-person. It's just how I like things... also, I am learning that I perform very well under pressure...

10. On a more positive note: I love my new job and I am ready for summer!


getting settled.

Hi everyone,

Thank you for being patient with me this past week has I get settled into my new job, city and living situation. I am almost completely moved home and have worked 50+ hours at WE so far!


I am on my way to my brother's birthday party for the evening but PROMISE to fill you in tonight when I get home and will continue to actively and regularly update my blog.

I hope everything is going great with all of you! Yay to those of you who took time to celebrate spring break, especially if you went someplace with sunshine.

I can't wait to share everything I've learned this week. I will see you back here soon.

Take Care!



a new chapter.

I did it. I graduated. I am officially an Oregon State Alumni. I finished my final project and presentation yesterday afternoon, I'm moving to Portland tomorrow and starting my new J-O-B on Monday.

It hasn't hit me yet that everything will be different, but I know it's coming. I'm a little sad, kinda nervous, anxious and overwhelmed but mostly very excited for the new phase of my life.

delightful postsecret project.

Remember this post?

Okay, the day is here!

I am finally posting the nice little collection of secrets I've received... I hope you are all excited!

For those of you who haven't sent one in, you can still participate. I am moving but all my mail will be forwarded to my new address.

I am only going to post a couple today. I'll save the rest for later this week, so stay in touch.


featured artist.

Part of the reason I starting this blog was to recognize and commentate about other artists. To those of you apart of an art industry, you understand the importance of exposure to the community. It is my intension and delight to recognize other artists so we can learn from and inspire one another.

I want to congratulate my good friend Matt Burns on his first Art show, which took place this past week. He is currently finishing his Bachelor of Fine Arts and displayed his work to introduce himself as an artist to the community.

MB’s works are mostly influenced by the culture and content of urban street art. He is incredibly talented, aware and passionate about what he creates. Although most of his work is produced in acrylic and spray paint, he is an artist of many mediums including: drawing, photography and tattoo art. This past month Mb also donated a piece to help raise money for Haiti.

Congratulations Matt Burns. Your talent and artistic outlook on our culture will provide a bright future!

Here are some of his featured pieces…

If you are interested in more information, email me and I will put you in contact with him.

Hope you all had a great weekend!


Senior skip day.

This weekend I will be doing a lot of irresponsible college-student, celebratory activities on behalf of my final weekend as a college student. Next thursday I will have to say goodbye to my comfortable, fun, do-what-i-want lifestyle and prepare for the next chapter of my life: working girl!

Which- don't get me wrong, I am very excited about.... but, also nervous.

Anyway, this weekend is about celebrating and saying goodbye to a great college town, experience and the fabulous memories that OSU has given me these past 41/2 years.

To kick off the weekend right, we've decided to have a senior skip day (hopefully my professor doesn't find this...) We've decided to spend the afternoon wine tasting in the beautiful, Oregon Willamette Valley vineyards.

Goodbye OSU. Hello weekend. Heelllllooooooooo celebration!


Kids say the darn'dist things.

They really do...

Yesterday I was listening to the radio on my way to work, and this lady called in and said "Can you please play the 'Imma Be' song by black eyed peas?"

"my son thinks it's the 'bumble bee' song, and he really loves it..."

HA! I totally laughed out loud to myself. Can you imagine? Sweet little guy...

Delightfully Sassy's Postsecret Project

I think it's time to present, to my blog world, the little project I have been working on lately...

In inspiration of Frank Warren and his weekly Postsecret blog, I decided to do something similar. I sent out a mass mailer to 100 of my closest female friends and family, all different ages, backgrounds, and lifestyles describing the project, the inspiration and this blog.

Just like Frank Warren's Postsecret Project, I have asked them to send me their secrets via post mail. In every letter I included a postmarked, return-addressed envelope with a provided 3x5 notecard for their individual secrets. Each secret has been sent to me anonymously; I have no idea where they are coming from.

I wanted to see if this idea would make as big of an impact in my network as Frank Warren has made on the world. I must say, I am quite impressed with the secrets I have received thus far. Thank you to those of you who have participated. I have received several and will begin scanning and posting them tomorrow.

**This is also a reminder to those of you who received my letter. Send me your secret soon because in two weeks I will no longer be living at this address. So, don't forget!

I can't wait to share your secrets. I have laughed, cried and empathized with all i've received and I am sure you all will too. I hope you are excited, stay tuned...
