One month, one day...

Ok, so it's been while. But, during an intense 5 week stint of grad school,2 3-hour classes, 7:30 AM 4 days a week, working semi-part time, my life looked a lot like this:

yes, that is a neuron. No, I do not want to talk about it.

Starbucks had a frappuccino sale...Mocha cookie crumble. Real life.

Notice a trend? My life consisted of a lot of reading, a LOT of coffee, and even more studying. I can easily say this was my HARDEST semester of grad. school yet (although if you ask my mom, she will tell you that I say that every semester. maybe I do. )  I took this weekend and got out of TH, and it was spent doing wonderfully "normal" things-spending too much time on Pinterest, going to Target, falling asleep before 11, baking, and spending time with some of my favorite people I don't see near often enough. 

Summer II classes started today, but the good news is that I have just ONE class to go to and an online class. So that means there will be much more blogging, picture taking, food making, and life ramblings going on around here. So thanks for your patience! I've got a couple good posts in the works as we speak. Also, I'm a graduate assistant this 5 weeks (which is nothing fancier that sitting for 2 5-hour days in our clinic's material room. Did I mention no one is in the clinic over the summer? And it's in the basement of our building?) so I will have all kinds of time on my hands to write. Hold me to it! 

In other news, my dear friend K is engaged!! It's been a long time coming, but she and J are perfect together and I can NOT wait for her wedding!

This picture is old and neither of us like it...which is mostly why it made the cut to be here!
She's been my friend through thick and thin and far's her fault I shamelessly watch The Bachelor/Bachelorette. Her wedding also marks the 5th  wedding that I am in between now and next October. So if you follow me on Pinterest and see me pinning just about every wedding pin that is out there, don't be alarmed. You're not missing out on big life information on my end :). 

Side note... at the end of the month, I'm guest blogging at A Step in the Journey, one of my favorites on my reading list! I'm quite excited, and I'm not sure if its because I've never done a guest post before, or if its because someone else wants me to ramble on their blog for a while ;)

Be well,

  1. Good stuff, friend! Glad to hear you are surviving all things grad school with the help of starbucks. I just want you to know that I'm having major withdrawal. That is all. Haha. Love you, lady!
