Happy Birthday to Me!

I thought about writing a sappy post about turning 22, but woke up this morning and decided to just ENJOY the day. 22-- I have a feeling you're going to be the best yet and I cannot wait! It's almost 60* and sunny here today which puts an extra pep in my step!

Will be blasting these songs throughout my day. No shame in my game!

Friday Five

Normally I'd be counting down the days to the weekend...but not this week! I want it to last as long as possible. I've been home on spring break and soaking up every minute of it. A few pick-ups off the bus for my cousins, a little bit of shopping, and of course squeezing in coffee dates with my besties before they headed back to school- precious, precious time. It's no secret that I love being home. Driving through my hometown makes me the happiest person, especially with the gorgeous weather we had this week! Thank you, God!!!!

Trips to Ulta are always unexpected but always necessary. I always spend wayyyy too much $$$ so I usually avoid the store all costs. However, with my birthday coming up and no new make-up in far too long (over a year. yikes) I decided to splurge. There's still a few things on my wishlist but for now, here's what I took the plunge on!

If you read THIS post, you'll know THIS song is on repeat even a week later. So much goodness in a few short minutes.

I snagged THIS DRESS for $36 earlier this week!!!! (Originally $90) It's definitely tight way too tight (ha!) so I'm going to continue working out so it fits! I dreaded the thought of trying to find a dress for graduation. I started my search very early and luckily, this one fell perfectly into my lap. Happy camper :) Loft for the win, AGAIN!! Did I ever tell you how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE that store?!

Cheers to my birthday weekend!!! Hope you have a great one, friends!! xoxo

Birthday Wish list

With my birthday coming up soon (March 16th!) I thought it would be fun to share my wish list! Some years my list is overflowing and others I can barely find one thing to ask for! This year is closer to the latter :) 

After purchasing my first small Longchamp tote last fall, and using the bag (almost) every single day I decided my next purchase would be the larger tote, this color screams summer and bring on the sunshine and warm temps! 

What girl doesn't want a cute, but simple necklace from Kate Spade? 

Tracking food and exercise in the past month has become a favorite of mine and I think it would be fun to track calories burned (especially if I start running---who am i?!?! HA!)

A new pair of Ray-bans would be fun to add to my wardrobe!

Lara Casey is one of my biggest inspirations and I'm dying to read her new book!

Yesterday I woke up to a text saying University Park CANCELLED classes!!!! They haven't closed campus since 2007...8 years!!! I was glad they came to their senses because campus was covered in ice! My cozy apartment + Gilmore Girls was the perfect way to spend my Wednesday! 

Thanks to my unexpected snow day, I was able to catch up on some blogging :) I realized it had been far too long since I've done a "currently" post! They're some of my favorite posts to read! You get a different glimpse into a bloggers life which I think is kind of fun. 


on repeat... IT IS WELL- oh this song. I heard it a few days ago for the first time and I cannot stop listening. I don't think I can adequately describe the emotions I feel from listening. Grace. Faithfulness. Peace. In the recent weeks I felt so distant from the Lord and it has been so disheartening. Was I not praying right? Just so many things running through my head, and then this song was placed so gently in my lap, and I knew that was God-giving comfort in the simplest ways. How amazing is that?! Our God is always with us even when it doesn't feel it. Humbling experience. 

looking... forward to spring break starting TOMORROW! a week of time spent at home- nothing better!!!!

loving... my simplified planner. hands down best planner I've ever used

missing... my gal pals + family 

day dreaming... of summer and warmer weather!! I need more vitamin D in my life! 

needing... a pedi,  haircut + my roots touched up aka a day of pampering would be divine

waiting...for an acceptance letter to grad school...someone take me, please!! 

craving... something new. a vacation, spring clothes, anything! 

reading... nothing. I hope to start Make It Happen by Lara Casey over break! 

accepting...prayers for the said letter above

making... my birthday wish list --11 days y'all! 

watching... gilmore girls. gilmore girls. anddd more gilmore girls
