Proud and Immortal, Bright shines your name!!!

So, it has been a tough few days in Cowboy Nation. My heart breaks for the families of those lost and the University as a whole. After such a great loss I was excited that we would have such an easy win. A little pick me up for a hurting group. Well, that was not in the cards for Oklahoma State! And while watching our undefeated season and our chance of competing for the National Champion slip away was horrid, nothing puts things into perspective like the loss of life. One of my sorority sisters posted this AMAZING article on FB. I want to share it. I cried as I read it. Oklahoma State and its people are a special breed. Its like explaining to someone who wasn't in a Sorority the bond you have with your sisters. I think it is best explained with a quote I've heard a few times, "From the outside looking in you can never understand it. From the inside looking out you can never explain it."

I'll leave you with the quote that one of my pledge sisters' had as her status...

Orange is that day that you moved into the dorms with a bunch of people you'd never met. It’s meeting those friends that would stick with you for life. It's "don't look at the arc", house decks and walk-arounds. It’s wearing orange the Friday before the first game & every Friday after that. It’s KURT BUDKE, MIRANDA SERNA, Barry Sanders, John Smith, Garth Brooks, Mike Gundy, Eddie’s you and me. Orange is putting your arm around the shoulder of the stranger next to you to sing the Alma Mater. It’s making the switch to saying “Power” instead of “Orange.” It’s remembering Lewis Field & admiring Boone Pickens Stadium. It’s knowing that it’s left hand up to make an “S.” Orange is when it’s good for a Cowboy First Down and Ten. Orange is Pistols Firing – Touchdown Oklahoma State. It’s “...O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A Oklahoma STATE” no matter where you are when the state song is played. It’s the big smile on your face when you walk past the orange fountain. It’s going back to the place you worked in college & remembering it as the best job you ever had even though it paid the least. It’s a cabinet full of Joe’s cups. Orange is knowing that it’s time to go home when you hear “New York, New York” or “Shoulda Been a Cowboy.” Orange is the one you tried to let down easy & the one you’ll never forget. Orange is wanting to get out of Stillwater for four years & spending the rest of your life wanting to go back.

Proud and Immortal, Bright shines your name. Oklahoma State, We herald your fame. Ever you’ll find us, Loyal and
true. To our Alma Mater O – S – U!!!

So, last week I came upon a cute little blog that does a weekly Pinterest outfit post! Last week they announced a link up this week! I thought it would be a fun challenge! I feel like I always look like a teacher... yes, I know I am a teacher but I don't want people thinking I wear holiday themed sweaters or something! Anywho I tried it out and I really enjoyed it! Here is the outfit we were supposed to recreate!

I do not own any of the exact pieces, so I made it my own! Here is my take on this outfit... (I should disclaimer my Dad took these pictures and they were taken after a day at school!)
Hope you are having a wonderful week! My week as started out with me being sick. YUCK! I think my immune system has given up! I'm not sure how much more of these little "sick spells" I can handle! I'm off to go take some more meds and get some sleep!

Product Whore... Say it ain't so!

My name is Jaime and I am a product whore... There I said it! Haha! Really though it's sort of a problem! You Ladies are super lucky though because you get to reap the benefits! Here are a few things that I have used lately that I am OBSESSED with!!!

First I am a sucker for some sexy, flirty lashes, who isn't! While I am not completely unfortunate in the lash department I def can always use some help! I have found the one my heart loves!!! It is Benefit (and yes a bit pricey but TOTALLY worth every penny!!) They're Real mascara.
I have been asked a few times if I was wearing falsies! Yes, it is that good!

Second, I am a poster child for combination skin but for some reason my eyelids are SUPER oily! I had always said no to eye primer, I honestly have no idea why the aversion, I finally tried Benefit's Stay Don't Stray

It was LIFE CHANGING. I wear it everyday and no crease, EVER. Even in 114 degree Oklahoma weather!

I used to keep solar nails but have of recent been going the natural route. I love super fun and bright colors. I am a total OPI girl but I discovered a new brand that GASP... might I say I love more!!! Essie Nail Polish is where it's at! It stays on SO well! Not a chip in sight for DAYS!!!
Let me introduce you to "Oui Madame," she's my current color! She's a beaut ain't she!
I'm not sure if y'all have seen the previews for the new show GCB, Good Christian Belles, or not but it looks like a hoot and a half! One of my fave Okies, Kristin Chenoweth, is even a cast member! CAN'T WAIT!!!
Have a wonderful day, Lovelies!!!

So, yesterday I lived through 2, yes you read that right, 2 earthquakes! The first hit around 2:15am and of course I was still awake. I thought it was a loud truck driving by and boy was I wrong! When the bed started shaking I had two thoughts... paranormal activity, or earthquake! HAHA! Since when does Oklahoma have earthquakes! Then last night around 11pm we had the biggest earthquake in Oklahoma history a 5.6, which according to the Richter scale wikipedia page, was a moderate earthquake. My mom and I had just finished watching the OSU game (I know, I know... rough game) and we thought we were hearing a loud gust of wind (and yes we have that strong of wind gusts!)... then the walls and pictures started shaking. It was SO scary! I can't imagine living through a ground splitting lots of damage earthquake. Truth be told I didn't even know what to do. Since preschool I have had tornado precautions preached at me. Never have I had earthquake precautions taught to me. I plan on doing a little research and covering it in class. I think that Mother Nature needs to choose... Oklahoma has tornadoes or earthquakes, only one though! Here is a funny video that one of my pledge sisters posted on FB! Watch his eyes! Haha!

How about that game last night? I mean seriously I thought my heart might give out. Glad we won but that was painful! And to top it off Bama lost. REALLY!!! Stupid Les Miles. Have a blessed week Lovelies!!!
