Hello Sunshine, You've been missed.


Dear Sunshine State,

In the past I've disliked you sometimes. I've complained about the "cold" (for what I'm used too) weather and I've whined about rainy days (see here). But I would like to say thanks. Thanks for bringing us springtime early. And lovely sunshiney days. And perfect weather to lay in the sunshine and study for midterms. And for beautiful breezy palm trees. Thanks Sunshine State. I've really missed your friendly weather. Let's kept this perfect weather a little longer please?



xoxo, Lo

Let's be Awkward and Awesome!

Awkward:
- Laying out and having a girl with pasties (you know the little stickers instead of a real bra?) on her boobs instead of a real top. There are BOYS around. Modesty anyone? There's a tonnnn of people around. yuck. ha.
- Having my lovely friend go "oh my goodness she's wearing pasties! pastie girl!" only to have said girl say that phrase right back to us... haha oopsies.
- Working at a desk where you have to talk to drunk college freshman. enough said.


Awesome:
- SPRING BREAK IS ALMOST HERE! thank you!
- Laying out and studying for midterms in the sun this weekend. That's what we're doing. yes!
- Going home in a few (ish) days!
- Mexico! That's were i'm heading for spring break!
- The most beautiful weather imaginable.
- Being productive (even with a lot lack of sleep) and finishing the worst week of projects/papers yet!

Any awkward or awesome's to share? :)

A little thing called life.

Hello all!

I'm so sorry I've been away so much recently. Life has just really become crazy. Like for-reals. Craziness I tell you! I'll hopefully be posting and updating with real life very soon! Only the rest of the day to get through. 3 more hours. 3 more hours. 3 more hours. 3 more hours. I'm not counting down until I get a nap or anything... ha! ;)

"Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope." - Romans 5:3-4




And a little song that has been on my mind and heart recently. Talk about giving me hope and perspective in one.

Happy Hump-Day lovelies!

Have you been here?

So I follow a blog calledddd The Yellow House. Basically? It's adorable. She is so cute and has the sweetest photos for purchase. And not only that but all the money goes to support her son, Cash. {Read here.} She is simply lovely and so is her blog. And this week she is having a giveaway! Yippee!The wonderful Cherie Chic is giving away the below mirror and also has a super sweet blog (follow it. you'll like it. trust me!) along with an Etsy Shop! So much wonderfulness! Her creativity astounds me and inspires me all at the same time. And this week they are giving away this little number. Isn't it adorable?

I could totally picture this sweet little mirror making my nightstand lovely. Doesn't it just make you want to go do something creative and crafty? I suddenly want to sew something or design something. Or rearrange my room. Yeah. Maybe that's where I'll start.

Happy Sunday Everyone!

Some food for Thought

So I stumbled across this blog at least a year ago, before it ever crossed my mind to become a blogger {ha. look at me now} and I read it pretty frequently. It's full of such insightful information. And on that note the other day I decided to check up on it and came across this Lovely Post. She talks about the curse of childbearing upon women from the fall of man of Adam and Eve. She also mentions how the curse of childbearing does not only fall upon those women who are bearing children. She talks about how relationships for women are overall just more painful for women. As women we feel a lost whenever any friendship or relationship ends, more so than men. That is apart of our curse we feel more, especially in regards to men in our life, guy friends, dads, uncles, boyfriends. It really opened my eyes to what I, as a woman, struggle with. So check it out. She's pretty awesome.

Happy Friday Loves! :)

Weekend.

Okay sooo maybe it's a little bit old {as in from LAST weekend} but whatev's. It's been a crazy week and last weekend was so wonderful and it must [read MUST] be documented.

So the weekend started out by the fact that I got to go home! Homehomehome! Lovely stuff folks anddd I also got to EAT IN CINDERELLA'S CASTLE, Disney World. whoaaaza! And then we MET PRINCESSES! Guys- it was ahhhhhhh.maaaaaaa.azinggggg. for real. I could really NOT have had a better weekend. At all. And I got to celebrate these 2 lovelies birthday's.


Really. It was wonderful. I love my family [have I mentioned that yet?] And I got to wander around stores with my best friend friday night [I know, exciting aren't we?] It was like wonderful summer all over again. Which is what this spring weather is making me dream of! Here's some sights from the weekend.






Hope you're having a good week.

Weekend.

This lovely weekend folks i did {insert drumroll here} nothing. Yep that's right. You heard it here first I am a real live college student who's entire goal this weekend was to do nothing. This was helped along by the fact that I had to stay in for my job but none the less, it was delightful. I did absolutely nothing {that includes minimal homework, oops!}, watched part of Inception, handled a flood, worked on a group project, built a model, and did not changing out of my PJ's. Awesomeness I tell you! That kind of weekend should be mandatory for everyone at least once a month. Buttt moving on...

Doing absolutely nothing {or at the least very little} this weekend totally has come back to bite me in the bum. I feel like I've been working like a mad woman these past 2 days in order to catch up! Too much I tell you! All I can say is I am looking forward to the weekend... And maybe some best friend time?!

Happy Tuesday Everyone! :)

I went to a Hoedown


Last Thursday night I went to a Hoedown. The annual Hoedown. It was ah-mah-zing. There was a mechanical bull, barbeque, friends, laughter, horses, and line dancing. I couldn't have asked for a better hoedown. It's an annual thing at my lovely school here and is made so much better by the sheer ridiculousness that it usually brings with it. I didn't grow up frequenting hoedown's and such sooooo it's usually a really exciting ordeal. Here's some lovelies from it :)

The lovely Kailey :)


:)


There was also a mechanical bull riding incident...or really just a video. Anddd it made me laugh so stinkin hard that I'm gonna share it with you guys! Just not too many jokes kay? ;)

Happy Weekend Everyone!

Late Late Late

Soooo sorry that I haven't been around in a while. It's been crazy. For real. Cr-ah-zy. Spaced out just like that. I haven't been so overly tense in a while BUTTT the good news is it's over for now! Yippeee! And sidenote: I'd been trying to post my previous post for dayssss but it wouldn't upload too anything. Eww. Oh well it finally did. I'll be more descriptive about my life tomorrow (or really later today) when it isn't nearly 2 in the A.M. and when I don't have to be up innnn oh about 5 hours. Woo hoo. Sooo here's a lovely hump day quote to get us through it:

Anyone God uses significantly is always deeply wounded... We are, each and every one of us, insignificant people who God has called and graced to use in a significant way... On the last day, Jesus will look us over not for medals, diplomas, or honors, but for scars." -Brennan Manning in Ruthless Trust


Hope you're all having an awesome week! :)
