Today was a great day. I spent some quality time with my Mom, which is always great. We went and got our hair done, and then did some shopping near my old university. I got to show my Mom all of my old hangout spots, and all the old restaurants I used to love going to. I almost felt like a tour guide, driving her around and telling her story after story. We even got to drive on Upper Mountain Road which is my favorite string of houses EVER. The most beautiful houses reside on that street, they almost look like small castles! We had a lot of fun, I didn't want to come home! The weather is the perfect temperature today, no jacket needed and lots of sunlight. my favorite!

I have some interesting news to share with you guys today. This past week I applied to FIT. For those of you who are unfamiliar, FIT is a fashion school in New York City that is extremely well known for having some of the most talented people in the industry. After thinking long and hard about my future I decided that I want to apply to their Merchandising Management Associates program which is a year long commitment. It would start in the fall of 2012 which gives me some extra time to get my life in order. I am so excited to apply, and even more excited to hear the response. I will definitely keep you all posted on what is happening next, but I feel really great about all of this, and I feel like I am taking my dreams into my own hands. I know I will find the right road eventually and I feel well on my way. I hope you're all having a beautiful Tuesday, and also don't forget to enter my Valentine's Day giveaway from Rissy Roo's!

PS. For those of you who read the first part of my interview with Goodwill, here's the second half :)
