birthday wishes

Well, we’re still over two months out from my next birthday, but I thought I’d go ahead and make a short list of some things I’ve had my eyes on for a while now!

Lo and Sons OMG Bag–I’ve had my eye on this bag for SO long now; I’ve literally entered every giveaway contest I could find online for the past year, but I think I’m going to have to bite the bullet and purchase one for my next week.  I mean, have you seen how much this bag holds?  If you haven’t, check out the video!
Capri Blue Volcano Candle–More than obsessed with this scent! Who doesn’t love great candles as gifts?
Floral Camera Strap–to accessorize my new camera that I got for Christmas.
Walnut Striped Clipboard–Since I’ve started doing so many assessments as an aspiring School Psychologist, I’ve decided a good clipboard is a must! I’m hoping this one will fit the bill!
When Life Gives You Lemons Print–The small 13×15 print would look SO great in my new apartment in August!  I recently purchased this print for my cousin and I’m in love with it!

kickstart your summer with a summer bucket list

The summer is my favorite time of the year, and what better to do than to make a bucket list to get the most out of my summer?!?  This summer’s list seems longer than ones from past years.  I packed this summer full of activities, hoping that it would make my last summer at home the most memorable one yet.  I’m also hoping that keeping busy will make the summer fly because I am eager to get to the grand finale–the big move to Texas!

Without further ado, here’s the tentative bucket list for the summer of 2013:

Summer Bucket List 2013

It’s been proven that people who keep a list of their goals are much more likely to achieve the goals they have than those who do not write them.  So, I always like to include goals for organizing my life and forming more healthy habits.  In the past it has been easier for me to develop certain habits over the summer and work towards maintaining them in the fall.  I actually prefer summer goals over new year’s resolutions, as I have had much more success with summer goals in the past.  So if you haven’t tried a summer bucket/goals list before, I encourage you to try it and let me know how it goes!

I’d love to hear what you have planned for the summer.  Feel free to post your summer events in the comments box below!  Happy Summer!


i’m feeling 22

My birthday is coming up next month, and I thought it would be fun to make a cute wish list. I love the print on this dress, and I’ve been obsessing over these eyeglasses for months now. A Keurig would be a nice addition to my home when I move to Texas in August. Leopard print is always a great addition to my wardrobe, and I currently own leopard loafers & heels. Why not leopard print sandals?
