Well helllllo there blog friends :) Instead of boring you with details about my life from the past week, I am going to bore you with pictures and minimal details ;) I know, I know...you're SO excited! 

  • Spoons fro-yo date with Rachel and Kourtney!
  • Turquoise and Caicos manicure ;) 
  • The best cookie cake ever that 2 of my roommates bought! 
  • Going to the park with Mason!
  • The best jelly beans ever!! 
  • I never get tired of seeing the Dallas skyline all lit up! 
  • 630 am at the hospital and my dad thought he was hilarious before his surgery! (He had neck surgery last Thursday morning & then lower back surgery on Friday morning. He got to go home Saturday and everything went smoothly!!)
  • My mom and I ran to CVS during my dad's surgery and decided to do our nails to entertain ourselves! 
  • The aftermath of Andy (my brother in law) spilling hot syrup all in his lap while eating chicken and waffles! 
  • We had a little bit too much to drink I guess! 
  • My first time having chicken and waffles! (& I probably won't have it again for a long time...I woke up in the middle of the night Thursday night with an awful stomach bug. Luckily it was only a 24 hour bug but it was roughhhh and seeing chicken and waffles was not pleasant)!
  • New iPad mini and cute case for Easter!!! YAY for the best parents ever! 
  • Drinking wine, grill out, spending time with family, and enjoying the beautiful weather on our back patio! 
  • It seriously was soooo relaxing! 
  • Spring has sprung at our house and it's gorgeous!!!

  • My cute little cousins on Easter Sunday....they're seriously the cutest!

  • My brother, sister, and I on Easter in 1994 (I think)!
  • My momma and I before church on Easter! 
  • Sarah Hunt (my sister in law) and I at my aunt and uncle's house for Easter lunch/egg hunt! 
  • The newest addition to the family... my little cousin Josie! She is 2 months old and the cutest little chunk! 

  • My new grey vans...my parents spoil me when I go home to visit ;)
  • My fancy new accessory....not! I hurt my knee skiing and thought it would heal on it's own but apparently not :( It was still bothering me quite a bit so I went to our orthopedist when I was home and found out that I have a tear in my MCL :( 

Sorry for the picture overload but it had to be done ;) Enjoyyyyy!

Travel Tuesday

Sooooo i'm gonna take a different route with Travel Tuesday! Instead of talking about a travel experience, I am going to ask for some travel advice! On my 21st birthday, my sister and her boyfriend (now he's my brother in law) took me to Vegas for my birthday and are now taking me again this June (as mentioned in yesterday's post)! We will be there from June 13th-16th and are staying at the Bellagio again! Last time, we saw the Cirque du Soleil show "O", went to the Stevie Nicks concert, drank way too much, barely slept, and surprisingly made a lot of money gambling! 

Now this is where you come in...I need tips/suggestions on what we should do this trip :) Since this is only my second time there, i'm still not very familiar with Vegas! I'd love to hear about yummy restaurants, fun bars, good shows to see, fun things to do there, etc! 

Ready, set, GO

Weekend Shenanigans

I know you've been anxiously waiting all day for my weekend shenanigans post, so here ya go ;)
Thursday night started the weekend off and of course we went out to Northgate to celebrate Thirty Thursday ;) 
Friday started off at about 10 am after getting about 5 hours of sleep. So of course I resorted to going to a late lunch/ritas with my friend Katie at Chuys! After that I ran errands, went to the mall, and did some studying. That night, Kourtney and I decided that it would be best if we stayed in after the night we had Thursday night haha so we ordered pizza and watched Netflix movies :) Oh and I got the lovely text message above from my sister! Her and my brother in law are the best and bought me a flight ticket to Vegas!!! [They also took me on my 21st birthday...they kinda spoil me ;)] 80 DAYS UNTIL WE'RE PARTYING IN VEGAS! 
On Saturday morning, Kourtney and I packed up and headed to Waco for the rest of the weekend (and of course we made a pit stop at Health Camp in Waco for a yummy burger for lunch)! One of my best friends, Avani, was competing in a dance competition at Baylor so we went to support her and our friend Blake who was also competing! Us girls went to Chuys before the competition for some ritas then went out with everyone after the competition which was so much fun! It was so much fun to see my girls and to see them compete! (It was like a mini reunion because my roommate from freshman year before I transferred/one of my best friends Hailey [the one in the blue, white, and black top] was there as well as my best friends that all lived on my hall in the dorms freshman year [except for Kourtney]! Although I saw them a few weeks ago, it was fun to have a girls weekend/get away!) 

Sunday was nothing exciting, so that's why I have no pictures! We slept in (we all stayed at my grandmas house in Waco because she moved so it's up for sale) then Kourtney and I headed back to College Station and the girls headed back to Sherman! I did some studying, working out, then lounged in the living room until bed time! 

I hope you all are having a wonderful Monday! This week is going to be so busy for me but at least Easter break is starting Wednesday night after work :) Come back tomorrow for Travel Tuesday!!

[If you could see what i'm currently doing right now you would probably judge me...i'm majorly lounging in the living room trying to avoid doing my homework. I've been successful thus far...let's hope it continues. Now on to the goodies that you're here for. Oh and sorry for not posting in forever. I suck, I know]

Reading: All I have time to read these days are my Erin Condren planner and books for school. Boring, I know! 
Writing: A paper for one of my communications classes. Well actually I have neglected the poor thing and it's minimized right now. 
Listening: To the tv and my roommates talking! 
Thinking: That i'm freezing cold in our living room right now and that i'm ready for Easter break to start in just a short few extremely busy days. 
Smelling: Like outside....Kourtney and I went on an adventure walk earlier and now I feel like I smell like outside haha. 
Wishing: That I had no responsibilities and that I was on vacation right now. 
Hoping: That my dad's surgeries this Thursday and Friday go smoothly! 
Wearing: Victoria Secret yoga pants, socks, long sleeve Vineyard Vines tshirt, and a bunch of wristbands from going out last night...classsssy
Loving: My family, best friends, and the life God has given me! I really couldn't ask for more!
Wanting: To go shopping but i'm trying to hold off until I get home later this week because the shopping in Dallas is WAY better than the shopping in College Station! 
Needing: Money...good thing i'm working tomorrow and all day Wednesday! 
Feeling: Tired, cold, and lazy! Pathetic, I know! 
Clicking: On various blogs, Facebook of course, pinterest, school stuff, PR stuff for work....multi tasking at it's finest. 

Well that's all I have for today but make sure to come back tomorrow for Weekend Shenanigans...I promise I will post more this week ;)
