Hey There, Friday!

This week has been filled with so many sweet moments. Let's get to sharing! 

My birthday was on Wednesday and my class surprised me by singing "Happy Birthday" when I walked in that morning. It. Was. Precious. Hearing their little voices + the excitement they had all day! They also made the sweetest cards! Made this teacher/kid lovin' heart smile! Moments like those just make you melt!! I get sappy when I think about the school year being over because they're the sweetest cherubs. I'm sure come June, I might be saying something different though ;) #bringonsummer

I haven't talked about the graduate school process lately because there hasn't been a whole lot going on. Until about two weeks ago, when the acceptance rejection letters started coming in the mail. It's a difficult process and I somewhat expected it, but still doesn't feel any better. Wellll, Tuesday I got some hopeful news! While I was at lunch, scrolling through emails, I saw the subject line, "Appalachian State Admission Decision"....insert heart sinking. Too anxious to wait until the end of the day, I of course opened and started scrolling. I was WAITLISTED!!!! (insert: almost choking on my salad.) Getting waitlisted doesn't sound exciting at all, but it's far better than a rejection. Praise God!!!! Moving to North Carolina has been a dream of mine for a long time and I can't believe it could maybe come true!?! Excited to see how God's plan unfolds! I know I'll end up where I'm supposed to be- even though NC feels a lot like it. Still waiting to hear back from 5 schools--fingers crossed! Say a prayer for me, please!!

I went to a Pure Barre class once back in January 2015 to see what the hype was all about. After my first class, I was so sore- for like three days, but I genuinely loved the class and could see what the hype was all about! However, the classes are pricey, so I couldn't commit at the time. Fast-forward over the last few months, I really wanted to get back. But I was so intimidated. What's a girl to do? Well, when you get a birthday coupon for a free class, YOU GO! You face your fears and walk in the door. (Ok. easier said than done because I had to coach myself before going! Ha!) I never workout- and I chose to go on my birthday to workout...instead of going to dinner #whoami?  I loved it so much....that I'm going back tonight. And I. Can't. Wait!!! Shout out to the one month new member special!! (*not compensated at all- just sharing my excitement and love for PB). QUESTION FOR ALL PB/ HSM/YOGA/WORKOUT GALS: WHAT ARE THE BEST WORKOUT PANTS YOU RECOMMEND?! 

Aren't they just the best?! Bring on SPRING!!!

Happy Thursday + St. Patrick's Day! One more day until the weekend, yay! It's been way too long since I've been to this little space and I've been missing it a lot lately. Excited to be linking up with Jess today for a few confessions!

+ I confess that I have (way) too many drafts that need to get published. Oops!

+ I confess that yesterday was my birthday and I really didn't put together a "wish list". Which is weird for me. I did, however, ask for cooking griddle from Williams-Sonoma...does that make me an adult? #whoasksforacookingpanfortheirbirthday #callmeweird

+ I confess that I can't stop looking at Elise's post from her sister, Hope's baby shower. So dreamy!! 

I confess that I'm counting down to season two of Fuller House #noshame 

+ I confess that I wanted a new phone case last weekend and it took me entirely too long to choose one. Who knew picking a phone case could be so hard?! Pretty sure the Apple store guy thought I was nuts, but oh well! I went with this one and haven't looked back!

+ I confess that after weeks months of trying to curl my hair the right way (without it looking weird), I finalllly figured it out! It's the little things over here! 

+ I confess that I forgot how much I LOVE this stuff. It's the best hair conditioner, ever. Hefty price tag. But! Amazon Prime saves the day bringing it to half the cost. 

+ I confess that I screamed when Jojo was introduced as the next Bachelorette. 

Well that's all I've got for today! What are y'all confessing today?! Make sure you head over to The Newly to share or leave them in the comments!
