I’m blogging cozied up in my bed after an amazing weekend, but keep reminiscing on hilarious, ridiculous, beautiful memories with my sisters. I decided to dedicate this post to Kerry, Katie and Hope; the three people I care about more than absolutely anything. It’s been such a privilege to be their oldest sister and watch them grow into the amazing women they are. My girls are the first to correct me when I’m out of line and the last to judge me when I make a mistake. I wish we could live together at home all the time, but being at school has deepened our […]
Happy holiday to you! Labor Day is always a random holiday for me because I have no set traditions or plans, but today ended up being productive and mostly enjoyable. I’m definitely loving the time I could spend with my fabulous roommates and queens this weekend. I moved back to Athens on Thursday and into a new house! I was excited about the extra living space in our huge new home. I had only seen the house briefly twice before moving in and my mom and I were both equally annoyed annoyed and shocked at how dirty it was! Ugh. Over the weekend, we’ve transformed […]
After reading one of my favorite posts about headbands from FSU Fashion Girl (thanks Chandra!), I knew it was time for me to blog about my absolute favorite go-to item. I wear headbands almost daily (not including the obvious boring headband wraps for working out, washing face, etc.) I feel like headbands can make a statement about how I’m feeling that day, punch up an outfit a bit more and are always the perfect fix for the inevitable bad hair day. The increasing popularity of Gossip Girl has fed into the headband-crave and Blair Waldorf’s ever present headband have inspired designers and excited girls of all […]
Some people, like my sister Hope, crave steak for dinner, followed by ice cream and brownies for dessert. Some people enjoy salads as a “pre-meal” or only eat salad on “fat days” when they feel forced to eat healthy. I am quite the opposite. Salads are a staple in my “diet” and I am constantly excited try new ones, enjoy constant favorites (like the fourth one pictured from Atrias in Pittsburgh) and make them on my own. As much as I love them, it sometimes can get boring and bland, so I have to mix-it-up and experiment! Part of my summer routine includes making a […]
Rereading my blog from last summer and really enjoyed this post. Thought I’d share it again because it was a quick refresher on why I need to appreciate my life everyday. I love how so many things that I “couldn’t do without” last summer are still constant this summer. The post is below: June 14, 2009 : I’m feeling grateful lately, so I wanted to list things and people that I couldn’t live without, that make my life happier and sweeter! My mom, her unconditional love for me, radiant energy, chaotic “organizational skills” and her ability to make the little messed up things fixable. Headbands, […]
Today is my mom’s birthday and she is the ULTIMATE queen. I am so blessed and thankful to not only have her as a parent, but as a friend. She accepts me right where I am at in life and challenges me everyday to be the best person I can be. I decided to post pics of memorable days with her. Happy Birthday Mom!
