Hey There, Friday!


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


ONE | BIRTHDAY 
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


TWO | GRADUATE SCHOOL UPDATE 
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!!



THREE | PURE BARRE
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?! 




FOUR | FRESH FLOWERS
Aren't they just the best?! Bring on SPRING!!!

  2. I LOVE Pure barre! I had a new member membership all January and February but it has since expired and I haven't renewed it :(. I personally LOVE THe North Face brand for workout clothes!
