well folks......


but not really yet, still just good ole' sleet outside.

but i'll take it if it cancels classes for a few days.

i'm in desperate need of a breakfast like this right about now.
(or at least just a cup of coffee)

Sarah sent me the new Amos Lee CD last night... and i am LOVING it!
so soothing, so chill, so perfect.

Don't want to go out into the cold today?

play and make fun outfits here.

16 fun facts about the SAG Awards' fashion.

Pray for Egypt.

Mondays are so much more exciting when there's hopes of 10 inches of snowfall in the forecast. know what that means!

Hammocking on saturday, possibly throwing snowballs on wednesday or thursday.

My birthday is on Saturday
i'm pretty excited.

Matthew and Sarah are back in the states!

Crushing on these looks from asos!

(i almost bought a headband just like this at also crushing on her hair!)

i WILL be eating one of these tomorrow.
preferably while on a picnic, or in a hammock.

65 degrees and sunny...what a perfect Friday.
topped off with some thrifting with sweet friends!

My Sweets what are your plans for the weekend?
Hopefully a lot of relaxing and being joyful.
Unfortunately i have homework on my agenda for the weekend.
But don't worry, it's last on the priority list.
but don't tell my parents! ;)

I will have lots of pictures to post for next week!

I guess i need to buy these...

a special lady was born on this day.

Today is my mom's birthday.
And not only is she my mom.
but she's my best friend in the entire world.
she encourages me.
she lets me be me.
every hug is a safe place and a breath of fresh air.

and i pray one day i can be half the mom she is.
i love you, mom!!!

i had such a happy moment yesterday.
as Mer, Quinn and I were treasure hunting through the racks at Potters House Thrift Store yesterday afternoon, "simple life" by the weepies came on.
it was pure bliss.
i might have closed my eyes for a few seconds to savor the moment.
we also snagged some good finds, and i grabbed a few things for the sale!
(which is going to be at the end of the year, stay tuned for some previews of the clothes that i will be selling!)

Ahh... Thursday's are probably my favorite day of the week.
Since i don't have classes on Fridays, Thursdays are the beginning of my weekend.

Another thrifting trip is already planned for tomorrow with Lauren, Macy and Mer
.... and i cant wait!

I love my major.
Reasons why:

1. Cutting out pictures from magazines for a semester notebook.
2. Going to the mall to take pictures of signage
3. Learning to sew
4. Talking to the girls in my classes about fashion 3 days a week..
5. .... i'll figure this one out later.

But seriously! It's so fun and i learn something new everyday!

Let's not talk about how i got an email yesterday telling me i made the honor roll for the first time ever!!! ...... mama is proud.

i do love coffee...but this is just a little crazy..

i love these fabric covered hoops!
i stole the idea last year and made some for my room.
i wish i had a whole wall of them!

I also made some bunting!
Probably my favorite thing in my room currently.
I want to make more.

Matthew and Sarah are in Vancouver!
on their honeymoon.

Two of my all-time favorite humans.

And looks like i'm adding vancouver to my "To Visit" list...

I'm going home in a few weeks to have a birthday celebration for myself and my mom (whose birthday is tomorrow!) and i cant wait to be with everyone! So excited!

Prints... my current obsession.

Getting ambitious for the next time i go grab a few things from the store.

Do-It-Yourself heart-shaped paper clips!

A perfect Vintage Wedding.

Happy List:
Waking up at 6:30 feeling refreshed.
Mr.Wanjohi's (stat teacher) sweet personality.
Coffee smell.
Finally hitting the gym.
The sun and the Son.

The sun finally showed itself today! The vitamin D was much needed..
Yesterday we went to church then went to Sams Club for the $1.50 hotdog combo..
i must say, it was the best hotdog i've ever had.
and you know what?
we're going back next week.

This girl is so cool.

Quinnie Girl is blogging now!

Crushing hard on this.

My next craft project.

Sleepy Sunday.

Just a few pics from the weekend..

Oh..and another little video we made.

Weekends, how i love thee.

Happy Saturday!

I went to my first (ever) Arkansas Hockey game last night with some new friends!
We played LSU and beat them 11-1...and apparently that's a really high scoring game for hockey.
We played games after and i discovered a game i'm actually good called naked. (disregard)

What's everyone doing this weekend?

{Jade, Anna, Me}

Cute things.

I could spend all day here...

o0o0o0o0o0o what a lovely day..

What a sweet surprise!
The kappa house was a happy place around 9:00 am when we all got the school cancellation text/email/voicemail.
The day consisted of a morning movie in the red couch room (pajamas required)
Taco-bar for lunch
Trek out in the snow for coffee at common grounds
Sledding on campus
Ending the day with a fire and some good time with friends!

Pretty much the ideal day for me.
How was your day?

Clark and i made a little video last night while we were staying cozy by the fire.

My wish came true!


{Here's what i love about snow days}

Daydreaming of summer wardrobe.

...oh and dreaming about the new camera i will hopefully be getting in the near future

snow, snow, snow...

I cant fall asleep cause i'm too busy thinking about how nice it would be if school was cancelled tomorrow......

I'm also busy tossing around the idea of maybe selling a bunch of my thrift finds at the end of the semester... what does everyone think?
I know a lot of girls would love to be able to thrift for the fun and price...but just don't know what to look for, so how about i just bring the thrift store to them?

A few inspirations

... these pictures make me want to thrift all day, everyday!

My brother Matthew and I took this picture last year for my mom's birthday and i just stumbled upon it today.
