Weekend Review

Hey guys! How were your weekends?

Mine was pretty great! My quarter ended on Friday, so my weekend was pretty stress free. :)

My friday afternoon was spent turning in my English quarter paper and then watching Undercover princes on TLC (boring and uncomfortable) and Undercover Boss. Super fun. I know. My High School played their last regular season game and won :) WE already clinched our spot in the playoffs a couple of weeks ago, but its' still exciting!

Saturday I got up early (again) to teach religious ed, and then went to dance class. It was really awesome because one of the girls that graduated (High School) last year came back for class! So fun :)

We then went to my mom's College's Homecoming (North Central College) . We got there just in time for Half-time and then we left. We're huge football fans as you can tell.

The Fab Five: Sam, Annie, Me, Rose, Shawn.

I've spent my Sunday so far watching lots of Pro Football and LOTS of Gossip Girl. I love the end of the Quarter :)

Via my instagram

2.
My high school football team is in the playoff's and I'm pretty pumped. Anything that extends football season is great in my book.

3.
I'm in Orchesis in my school which is a student run dance and choreography club, and we're ordering personalized windbreakers. You could say I'm pretty pumped. Like a little bit. and by a little, I mean a lot.

4.
My idiot dog was skunked again this week. We actually don't think he was sprayed, but he was outside while a skunk sprayed. I guess he'll never learn. (He was skunked 2 weeks ago as well.)


5.
So there's this website called RedBubble.com  and you can buy stickers for your computer. I know. Pretty freakin' awesome. My friend Emily showed it to me yesterday, and it rocks. so there's that.
Here are my favorites: http://www.redbubble.com/people/jda914/favorites
Plus, once you put 6 or 7 stickers in your cart, you get 50% off your order! No code needed!!!
You best believe I will be placing an order there very very soon ;)
Hope y'all have a great weekend!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Hey Y'all!

I've been LOVING my L.L. Bean Boots that I purchased a couple of weeks ago. They ROCK. With this cold and rainy weather we've been having here in G-Town, they've been coming in handy a ton!

I've been loving Essie's Wrapped in Rubies nail polish. IT's such a pretty fall color and goes with practically any fall outfit!
Via my Instagram

I've been loving that fall TV is back on! Elementary, The Vampire Diaries, and The Tomorrow People are some of my favorites so far!

I'm loving fuzzy socks. Like I said, the high this week is 47˚ so any extra warmth I can get, I'll take!

I'm loving pringles and reverse oreos, but since going shopping on Saturday, they seem to have disappeared. :/

What have you guys been loving this week?

Monday Musings

Hey y'all! Sorry for that little week-long blog hiatus! :/ I'm ashamed. Very ashamed. I'm going to try to post more often, but to be honest, junior year is kicking my butt and I'm not always able to access blogger at school (Damn you ChromeBooks!) so It's hard for me even to blog during my free time at school :(

Today, I thought I'd just share with you some of my recent thoughts!

+Can you believe it only 65 days until Christmas! That's just plain old ridiculous. Naturally I've already started my list, but come on, who hasn't! (38 school days until break! eek!)

+I'm such a huge procrastinator. Like seriously. I really need to reign myself in, but I just can't! :P

+It's amazing how people change over the years. Sometimes in good ways, other times in bad.

+Apple Cider is da bomb.com just sayin'.

+I drove like 3+ hours total this weekend, and I'm only 24 hours away from my license. Sometimes I'm annoyed that my mom's making me drive all 50 hours, (Illinois State Law) but than I'll do something really stupid and realize it's probably for the best lol.

+Do you guys have any music suggestion? I'm a little bored with my music right now. :( Comment down below with your ideas!

I think that's all I have to say for today! hope you enjoyed (even though you probably didn't because this was so random)

Friday 5 {+1}


1.
Homecoming week is next and I am beyond excited! I finally found a dress and I'm pretty sure I'm going to be able to go with a group of my really close friends. Hopefully everything works out well!

2.
I made monogrammed binder covers from This Blog and They're so cute! I instagrammed a picture last weekend and they just make me sooo happy when I look at them.


3.
Who watched Vampire Diaries last night?!?
I literally just had a 10 minute long conversation with my friend about last season. It was epic.

4.
Did you guys see the new car that I got? It's a 2014 yellow Corvette! I WISH!
My dad's friend stopped by with his new car which he special ordered and got last Monday! He let my dad drive it but being that it's a stick and I don't have my license, I didn't get to drive lol. I posted this pic on facebook saying that it was my birthday present from my parents and a lot of people actually believed me haha! 

5.
Tonight is Shawn's school carnival and the service club I'm in at my school is coming to help! I loved going to the carnival when I was in elementary school so I can't wait to be on the other side of it this year!

and because I can't just keep it to five this week, 
6.
I'm going to see Ballet West's Sleeping Beauty from the TV show Breaking Pointe on the CW. I. AM. PUMPED. I can't wait to see all of my favorites characters on the show dance in real life. (Now I just have to figure out what I'm wearing! :/)

I hope y'all have an awesome weekend!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

As many of you probably know, October is Breast Cancer awareness month. Breast cancer is a disease that I have been greatly affected by in my lifetime. My mom was diagnosed with early stages of breast cancer and had to under surgery as well as radiation treatment to be cured. (*She's almost at 5 years cancer free!*) My Grandmother (her mother) had and was cured of Breast Cancer 2 separate times. Breast Cancer is a thing that nobody should have to experience because EVERYONE DESERVES A LIFETIME. My mom and Uncle have walked the Susan G. Komen 3 day walks (60 miles in 3 days) 5 times each and raised over $15,000 for the cause! Just this past weekend, my cousins and I participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for Cure 5K!

In order to raise awareness for the disease, My blog will be pink for the whole month of october! 
I hope you all are having a great week! :)
