I had a blast going out to Northgate and dancing. It's essentially a street with all the bars and dance spots. Had so much fun with my friends though I wish I was 21; soon enough, though.
Well I need to start studying. Later, y'all.

Why can't I be a normal Texas prep and just inherit daddy's oil money and not worry about school???? Those students seem to have so much more fun. Sorry this post is basically me complaining....but seriously? Normal life is so blase sometimes.
Speaking of oil money...Dallas this weekend! Gonna visit some friends at SMU. Can't wait! Later. y'all!

This fall I am loving the oh-so-preppy look of layering a cozy crew neck sweater over bright polos with some khaki shorty-shorts. Top if off with some mocs and you have yourself a perfect preppy look for a true gentleman (regardless of region).
However, I find it aggravating how some polos bunch up under a sweater. Well, low and behold, thank goodness I hung onto so many of my old Brooks polos, because they just so happen to fit PERFECTLY under sweaters. Too small to wear alone, but fabulous for layering. My Brooks polos have held their shape so well over the years. Quality, quality, quality.
I'm just so excited for fall, y'all. I love to layer and I just love sweaters over polos. Hang on to your old clothes, ya never know when they might come in handy. Later, y'all!

Nonetheless, I've had a few self-discoveries the past few weeks. Let us list...
1. I, JDP, do NOT like kids. Well, let me rephrase that. I do not like grungy little MISBEHAVED kids whose parents let them make a RUCKUS and kick the back of the booth while I'm trying to enjoy my brunch. I refer to these children as kool-aid kids. You know the type with the red kool-aid stash and peanut butter fingers. GROSS! Check, please!
2. I will eat anything if it's covered in a blanket of cheese.
3. I wish I was a housewife. Or househusband. Either way, I envy ladies of leisure and wish I could wake up at 9, go to pilates, have lunch with the "girls," go shop for linens, pick up the kids from tennis practice and have dinner ready by 7. Sounds amaze to me!
4. Accounting blows. PERIOD.
5. Living in Austin has made me even more conservative than I was before. Y'all are unique and different, I GET IT! No need to dye your hair blue, your nose piercing got the point across.
6. I need a boyfriend, stat! (am I allowed to say that directly after number 5?)
These are just a few things that have been on my mind the past few days. Later, y'all!

It's one thing to have a pimple, but to be preppy and have acne just isn't acceptable. Acne=dirty, which is something I wish not to convey.
I've been using PanOxyl Acne Foaming Wash 10% for about two weeks now and my skin has been behaving so nicely. I'm normally very oily around my t-zone and this has dried that right up. If you are stuggling with annoying acne, give this a try. No complaints so far.

Sadly, lame belts as the above mentioned seem much more prevalent than the simple brown belt I so desire.
To continue with the theme of beltage, though my crew days are sadly over, I am a little obsessed with this belt from J.Press:
Well, that's all for now. Later, y'all!

Even though I'm not into hunting, I can still rep the South with a sweet L.L.Bean vest.
Obsessed. That's all I need to say about Southern Proper.
Hope it was a good weekend, later y'all!

Hey y'all. So my boss is at lunch which means I'm manning the desk for an hour and a half.
Lately I've been obsessed with chicken salad. I love anything having to do with mayonnaise, especially when eaten on a triscuit. Paula Deen has a really simple chicken salad recipe that is so tasty. I love the toasted almond slices, adds a nice texture.
She also suggested using fried chicken...thoughts? Personally, if its fried, I'll eat it. No wonder my favorite sushi rolls are the tempura ones...Anyway, another 2 hours at the office then class till 6:45. Later y'all!

I am a junior in college and can't wait to graduate. Of course, once I do I'll have another 2 years ahead of me...woopie!
So incase you didn't read my profile, I am gay. However, I like to think I am not your typical homosexual. For starters, I'm a proud Republican. Don't ask questions, just accept that I am. I feel like my political views cause more controversy than my sexual orientation does these days...expecially in this hippie haven they call Austin.
Anyway, lately I've been obsessed with my ray-ban wayfarers again. I got over them when I got new costas for Christmas but I seem to be going back to my wayfarers....I need to find some new croakies for them, like those thin stringy ones..but I dont know where to find them.
Well, I'm off to bed, later y'all.
