It's OK Thursdays!

Happy Thursdays Readers and happy December!  I hope everyone is having a great week and is gearing up for the weekend! 

There's a TON of things I'm okay with today...

It's OK...that I finished my paper for my blog project last night...the reason I started Pink Zin was because of an assignment for one of my classes (hi Professor Quigley!) and couldn't have imagined that I would fall in love with blogging so much, meet so many amazing people and really just find a hobby that I truly enjoy. I definitely don't plan on abandoning Pink Zin just because my project is done! 

It's (really) OK...that I received two plaid flannel shirts in the mail last night! They were a surprise from my mom and an early Christmas present! When I was home for Thanksgiving break I couldn't stop talking about how much I wanted a flannel for the bitter winter months! She picked them up at Old Navy and I'm in love! They're super oversized and comfortable- perfect for finals studying!

It's (really) okay...that I received my package from Pink Gasoline last night! I mentioned this on Monday but I purchased a monogrammed coffee cozy and keychain last week and was eagerly anticipating its' arrival! 

(used it this morning! such a nice touch to my disposable coffee cup!) 

It's OK...that I finally received my sorority's stationary in the mail yesterday (it was quite the day for packages!) Now we can have personalized stationary to send thank you notes to our panhellenic sisters! 

(They were ordered from Alpha Stationary in Indiana)

It's (not) OK...that fall semester is over in less than 2 weeks...that means I only have one more semester left at college...that means I'm one semester closer to graduating and entering the real world. WHAT THE HECK? I'm not ready to leave! 

It's OK...that I missed the Victoria Secret Fashion Show on Tuesday..though I try to watch it every year because it is definitely an amazing show and super entertaining...I always feel just a tad bad about myself after me superficial, whatever

It's OK...that I want everything on Carly from College Prepster's monogram gift guide. But for's not acceptable to buy presents for yourself when Christmas is only 25 days away, right?!

It's (really) OK...that it's december 1st because this means many things..
1. Boston finally has cooled down! It felt downright wrong that I could walk around in shorts and a sweat shirt when I should be in the Christmas spirit. Some people hate the drop in temperature but I'm not ashamed to say I love it. 
2. December 1st means the start of ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas. I love Christmas movies...I don't care how old I am but I will always love a cheesy holiday movie! 
3. Secret Santa! This winter I am participating in three different Secret Santas! One within my sorority, one with the other presidents of the sororities on campus, andd the one I'm probably most excited for- the Holly Jolly Secret Santa Swap hosted by Crystal from Coffee at NordstromEmily from Life of Emily, and Ashley from Everyday AEM! I sent out a Christmas card to my secret santa this morning and I cannot wait to receive mine in the mail! 

What is OK about your Thursday?! 


ps you must check out Crystal from Coffee at Nordstrom's giveaway! I'm really crossing my fingers for this one!
