Loading Up, Moving Out

Hey there!! So this is officially my last post before heading back to school!!! You might be wondering why there are so many exclamation points after that last sentence. The answer is because I am, in fact, extremely excited to go back to school! Yes, I am indeed one of those freaks who thinks buying new notebooks and pens and planners is thrilling.

Tax Free Weekend (+ Monday)

Hello again! Great to talk to you lovely people for the second time in three days! Nothing insanely exciting has happened since I last blogged, but I was lucky to be able to experience the wonderfulness that is Tax Free Weekend. See, here in the incredible state of Tennessee we have a fun little event every so often where our lovely state government decides to lift the tax on certain items for a limited time. Usually this happens at the beginning of the summer or before school starts in the fall, and this past weekend was the selected time for this amazing opportunity! And you better believe I took full advantage of it!

Beach Bum

Hiya! Since the last time I posted, my skin has gotten more sunburnt tanner, my hair has gotten (sunbleached) lighter, and my heart has gotten happier. Because I just went on the most incredible, fun-filled, entertaining trip ever. That's right, folks, #67 has been crossed off the 101 in 1001! For the past few days, I spent the majority of the time soaking up the sun and having the time of my life laughing with my best friends. It seriously was such a perfect trip, even though not everything went as planned. Nevertheless, I wouldn't have changed a thing, and I love my lady pals even more now (if that's even possible).

Adios Amigos!

Hey, friends! Right now I am dreaming of palm trees, coconuts, and waves lapping at my toes. Why, you may ask? Well, I'm going to the beach tomorrow!!! I literally cannot wait. Five of my besties from high school and I are leaving bright and early for Myrtle Beach. I don't even care that all six of us will be in one bedroom (and all sharing one bathroom), I just want to see the clear ocean and the gorgeous sunsets! This little trip will also complete #67 on my 101 in 1001 list! And possibly #5, if I can find a good book to bring. And maybe even #41 <<< just kidding!

Olympic Distractions

Hiya! Sooooo it's kinda been a long time since I last blogged. This is most likely for one of two reasons: 1.) I have been incredibly involved with my busy life and haven't had a chance 2.) absolutely nothing exciting has happened that has been worth blogging about 3.) nothing exciting has happened but I have been pretending to be incredibly busy. Option #3 may or may not be the right reason...But now I can make a mega post sharing all the fun things that have happened over the past week! This post might be a little all over the place, though, considered the Olympic opening ceremonies have about 98.685% of my attention right now.

Snapshot: Chicago

Heyyy! I'm back from Chi-Town (unfortunately). It's good to be back home, but I seriously love Chicago. I went through a period where I believed I was destined to move to the Windy City when I graduated college. However, the boyfran quickly reminded me of the extremely cold winters Chicago experiences and I quickly rethought my plan. I just can't do the cold. I get whiny, start to complain, and basically make everyone around me miserable am better off in warmer weather. This trip brought more blazing hot temperatures (100+ degrees), though, instead of freezing ones, but was still an amazing little vacation. But since I just got home a few hours ago and am exhausted, let's zoom on through this little post! More pictures, less words.

Woppin' in the Windy City

Hello from Chicago! This blog post is sponsored by fantastic shopping, deep dish pizza, and tons of reckless taxi drivers! <<< kind of a lie, but these are all things I have experienced so far! The title of this post is also kind of a lie. I haven't (yet) wopped on the streets of Chicago, but I did listen to the song in the car about 34932 times on the drive up. Nothin' to pump you up for a great time in an incredible city like the Wop. Now that we're good and off topic, let me show you a little bit of Chi Town!
