Where Have You Been?

I’ve obviously been slacking on my blogging game lately! My mind has gone from being overwhelmed with school after 10 days of Spring Break to being overwhelmed with wanting to go home for Easter! Couldn’t be happier that I will be back in the 901 tomorrow.

Luckily, things around here have been pretty productive! The last two days this  week I managed to get my booty off the couch and onto the hamster wheel for the first two days of Couch to 5k! It feels way better to get my heart pumping (& get the fit bit saying 10,000) than to sit on the couch all afternoon, but that sure is hard to be reminded of while I’m on the couch!

Also, been trying to keep this dude organized aka a full time job! He’s gone from just starting photography around November to booking engagement shoots, business projects (for the Wall Street Journal, what?!!), and multiple weddings! I’ve become the employed assistant since I tend to be more of the planner type.

My Mary Kay business has taken off & I am having so much fun! Just in the past week I’ve had 5 orders placed. And I was able to place my first big order thanks to Mom & Nana! I decided to use my birthday money as a sort of investment to get all stocked with awesome MK products to sell (& use myself too!) Thrilled to open the box when it arrives Thursday & share with ya’ll!

Did you catch that? My birthday is in 26 days.. I’ll be twenty! What on earth? Twenty year olds have it all together… Or so I thought! I feel like that number is way older than I feel!

There is so much jam packed into these last 5 weeks of school! I can hardly get a steady hold on the fact that in 20 class days I will be saying goodbye to Starkville & hello to Memphis! I can hardly contain my excitement. With summer comes sunshine, swimming, a Virginia trip, a florida trip, & lots of relaxin!

Please take a second to pray for this sweet little dude, Knox. He’s just over 2 years old and we spent lots of last summer together hittin up Target and snugglin’ Marley.

If you follow me on instagram, you already saw that he is at LeBonheur after having a few seizures yesterday for unknown reasons.

Pray for comfort for his momma and peace and healing for his little body. Thank you!

See ya then. xoxo.

Memories in a Jar: The Most Precious Kind

My parents joke at the fact that as a kid I was constantly caught mid-mischief.

It was quite typical that I would sit in the bathtub… chin covered in fluffy “Mr. Bubble” bubbles… hands raised about chest height… shampoo bottle in hand.. upside. down. I guess I can blame my love for new beauty products for that one. I learned at a young age that when the bottle empties, Mom runs to Walmart (the grocery spot for 1990s moms and college kids in Starkville with no Target ;)) to replenish it. I guess I learned along the way, after lots of punishment for “wasting” (hey- at least the unused shampoo created more bubbles on its way to the drain) that you could indeed simply push the current bottle of hair care back in the closet with all the towels and other misfit products and buy new… that was until the college budget hit the scene!

Anyways, one shampoo near and dear to my heart, I know… weird right? But it holds so many memories: people, places, smiles, not to mention its undeniably phenomenal smell…
has been reintroduced in Walmart and maybe many more stores…

No kidding. It made my day to discover this. I truly have searched shelves on and off for years to find my all time favorite product. Herbal Essences Smooth & Shiny Collections; even given to us in the old bottles and all their glory. This girl is thrilled.

{It is said that smells are the brains way of etching childhood memories into the brain!}
Goodbye new fangled fru-fru Herbal Essences….
It’s back to the basics. Vintage is in… right?
