Friday Faves

The beginning of the week was pretty rough, emotionally. I just wasn't myself and I couldn't figure out what was wrong. There were some things going on at work and the weather was very rainy and dreary. So I'm pretty sure that's what impacted my mood. After Tuesday and coffee with my best friend something shifted. Thank you, God!! And the rest of the week was pretty grand!

Favorites this week included:
1. Lunch with my sister
2. (finally) getting my hair colored & adding more blonde
3. Grabbing breakfast with Liz 
4. Cute guy at the Mac computer store who was able to fix my charger
5. Being able to get outside and exercise! Even though I probably picked one of the most humid weeks to date to start. Oh well!

And some favorite pins from Pinterest this week included:

I would LOVE to be curled up here reading a great book!

Gorgeous dress! I want!

Can't wait to have little baby boys and dress them in adorable outfits like this one!

Have a fabulous weekend!!

Memorial Day Weekend recap

Although the weather wasn't great, I would've LOVED to be at the beach this weekend!!! But instead, I spent my whole weekend working. YUCK! I guess that's what I get for choosing a job in the retail field. Oh well, at least I made some money!

Friday, I went and did a little pampering and treated myself to a gel manicure. I had never gotten one before but everyone's been raving about them so I decided to try it out. Let me tell you, I absolutely LOVE IT!!! Usually my nail polish chips about 3-4 days after a manicure...I'm day 4 into this mani and they're not even close to chipping (SCORE!) The only thing I didn't like was the lack of color choices. So I went with classic french on my fingers!

 Saturday I worked more and it was my friend Sam's birthday so I went over to her house to celebrate after! Isn't the cake awesome!? (She's a Music Ed major)

Sunday I worked, again but at night. So Momma and I went shopping in the morning and here's what I got:
-a blue maxi dress (my first one & can not wait to wear it!!)
-lilac shorts with navy pineapples! 
-and Saturday my mom went to the Vera Bradley outlets while I was at work and she picked up the wallet below for me! I was ecstatic because it's my favorite pattern and wallet style. Yay!
Lastly, Sunday night after work, Sam wanted to go to Love It! which is a froyo place near our me some froyo!! 

Monday I worked as well so no pictures!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and caught some rays for me!!

Sweet Little Reminders

Today I woke up to this sweet text from my cousin. It just put a smile on my face knowing he thought of me and took a minute out of his day to text me...

Then went to Dunkin Donuts this morning to get some coffee with my best friend. This is her...

Then...picking up my car from inspection and the mechanic saying my Daddy already took care of the sweet!!

Each of these simple and kind acts reminds how blessed I am. It truly is the little things in life. 

Please take a few minutes out of your day to pray for all of the children, people and families  who were involved in the Oklahoma tornadoes. I can't even begin to imagine the devastation they are facing right now. May God surround them as they grieve during this difficult time.

"Blessed are those who morn, for they shall be comforted."
Matthew 5:4

Thank you Maria Shriver, I completely agree.

Every End is a New Beginning

Last week I finished up my two years at Altoona. Now headed to University Park in the fall (AHHHHH! So exciting but scary too!) As much as I complained about Altoona, I really can't imagine starting at another campus. It was a perfect place to meet people, "get my feet wet," and really transition. If I started at University Park my freshman fall....well, who knows what would've happened! 

I'm so thankful for all of the people I met along the way, regardless of if we're still friends. I learned so many life lessons in the past two years. I can't even believe it. But one of the biggest things I learned was how important my Faith was. 

But aside from the life lessons (because I could go on, and on) here are some pictures I captured during my sophomore year.....

 tailgated with these lovely ladies!

white out game!


donated blood

was able to be apart of THON 2013! AMAZING!!

getting accepted into my major and program!! SO EXCITED!

 celebrated my birthday with some wonderful friends!!

 we just love getting insomnia cookies....seriously delicious!

As my friend Jess said right before we left "Now we can't make excuses that there's nothing fun to do like we said in Altoona because at State there are SO many options"...Jess you are so right!
