I'm linking up with Jamie today for WILW :-)

I am loving that my test today is open notes, open book, open whatever!! Now if only every other prof would be that generous! Although I usually don't do as well on open note tests only because I don't study for them like I should, but the stress is removed so that alone is great!!

I am loving that my sweet boyf will be turning 24 on Friday!
~I'm sure him & Andy will be pulling out their best moves to celebrate~

I am loving that we are leaving for Tybee tomorrow for the weekend to celebrate A's birthday with friends!!

we heart tybee :)

~Hope y'all are having a great HuMp day!!~

Miscellany Monday

**Happy Monday!**
I'm linking up with Carissa today for Miscellany Monday :-)

Yesterday I finally got to meet some bloggy friends!!!
{People probably thought we were nutso having a photo shoot before church}
I am so glad Jessica and I finally got to meet Leslie and Ally!
Such a small world~ but w/o our blogs we prob would have never met one another!

Miss Carolyne-Grace had her Easter pics taken yesterday~they turned out so good!
I may be a little biased but my niece is the cutest babe EVER!!

This Friday is Adam's 24th birthday!
So were packing up and heading down to Tybee for the weekend with some friends
Can't wait for another weekend getaway.. hopefully the weather cooperates.
It's nasty here in Athens today :(

My Dad's truck was broken into {IN OUR FREAKING DRIVEWAY} over the weekend.. among the things that were taken was my makeup bag.. I had been with my family the day before and accidently left it in there. Now everything is gone :( I know it's just makeup... but there was a lot of nice {expensive} things in there.. now I have to waste money to buy all new stuff.. SO frustrating. We live in a small, SAFE, town.. It just scares me that someone was in my parents driveway while they were asleep inside.. People are so evil sometimes..

Speaking of EVIL people.. our town was hit with a massive tragedy this past week.
Everything started on Tuesday when a man {Jamie Hood} hijacked a car and put the driver in the truck. The driver eventually escaped and was able to call the police. When the police spotted Hood and his brother later that day they attempted to pull them over. In the midst of them trying to pull them over Hood shot and killed Police Officer Elmer "Buddy" Christian and severely wounded Officer Tony Howard. The brother was arrested, but Hood got away. This turned into an all out manhunt for 4 days. Police discovered Hood had taken nine people hostage in an apartment in Athens. Hood finally surrendered Friday night on LIVE TELEVISION (click for video).. It was the most bizarre thing I have ever seen. {He wanted to surrender on Live TV so they couldn't kill him} It has been a stressful week in our town..everyone has been on pins and needles not knowing where Hood was.

Yesterday Officer Christian was laid to rest (click for video). His funeral was held at the Classic Center.. which is also where I go to church. Coming out of church yesterday it was so overwhelming to see the 100's of police men and women there to show their support. Our city lined the streets as his processional went through the heart of Athens.

Sorry to leave y'all on such a sad note.. :/
I just want y'all to be praying for Buddy's wife and 2 babies...
& also pray for the sick minded people of Athens who felt it was right to start a facebook fan page for Jamie Hood. {If you have time please report this site to facebook}

Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

Last week was spring break and I spent the first weekend in New Orleans with friends {see post below} & the second part of SB was spent with Adam in South Florida at Braves spring training! We had so much fun together.. it was so relaxing & exciting at the same time. We were in Palm Beach for two days and Orlando for three. We got tons of autographs & great pictures--Can't wait to go back next year!

Freddie Freeman

David Ross

Eric Hinske

I am so glad I don't have class until tonight because I have a few things coming in the mail today that i can't wait to get!!
I went to the Lilly Pulitzer store when we were in Palm Beach and they were out of the planner I wanted so I ordered it & it should be here today! :-)
This should also be arriving today--like I've mentioned before there isn't a Sephora in Athens.. the closest one is about an hour away & it's just hard to get to it as often as I would like to so I end up ordering a lot of stuff online, which actually works out because I can get it off eBay for much cheaper.. I got this for only $4.00!

And probably the thing I am most exciting about.. a new battery for my macbook! I've needed one for MONTHS but just couldn't make myself fork over the $150.00 {My computer works if I have it plugged into the charger...} But my friend gave me the name of a seller on eBay who sells them for $35.00!!
The BEST part about my whole spring break was spending this past weekend with my family :-)

Me & my brother

And on Sunday my brother got baptized!!!! :-)
I am so happy for him and proud of the great decisions he is making for himself and for his family--I know his wife and daughter are so proud of him!

~Happy Monday Y'all~

Nawlins Baby

Woo!! I just returned from an AMAZING weekend in New Orleans with 8 of my BEST FRIENDS!
We were there celebrating my friend, Breanna's 21st birthday--& boy did we celebrate!

It was SO much fun to be with all my besties.. we rarely get to see each other now that everyone is off at college, but when we do get together it's like we've never been apart!

Bourbon street didn't know what had hit them when we showed up!!

my pics from the wknd are from my phone, so sorry about the terrible quality--but I cannot be held liable for such expensive equipment when I'm a) wearing heels and b) drinking vodka all night.

we danced our little hearts out all night long.. even got on stage a few times to get our groove on!

birthday girl at the end of the night, she still had her sign AND her dignity!

this pretty much sums up how amazing our night on bourbon street was!

the night ended by ordering 15 pancakes the size of pizzas...

interesting things started happening with the pancakes..
some pictures are not allowed to be shared but will be saved for black mailing purposes! {I'm talking about you Lindsey! "We DON'T eat pancakes in the closet! ;-) }

Hope y'all enjoyed my craziness~
All in all it was a weekend I will NEVER forget!

~ I have unpacked & repacked and am headed to South Florida in the morning for the rest of the week with Adam!
I am going to be one tired girl come Friday. But it's worth it for a week away with my boyf!

Until then...

Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

I'm linking up with Carissa today for Miscellany Monday!

(1) I bought 4 of the colors from Essie's new Spring 2011 French Affair Collection
~Right now my nails are painted French Affair {the pink}, but I am going to change them to Topless & Barefoot {the nude}.. It is the PERFECT nude color--my SIL has it on right now and I L.O.V.E it!!!

I loved all the colors~ but these four were my fav & they had them all in the mini-pack so I decided to just get that. I will probably go back and get French Affair & Topless & Barefoot in the regular sizes though.

(2) I saw the new OPI Texas Collection but didn't get anything from it~ all the colors seemed too familiar. I liked the names though -- {My fav. being San Tan-Tonio} & if I were from TX I prob would have bought some.

(3) I think I like nail polish too much.

(4) I am leaving Friday to fly to New Orleans! A group of my closest besties are going to NOLA to celebrate Breanna's 21st birthday! I can't wait!!!!

(5) I'm flying back into ATL on Sunday and then MONDAY Adam & I are driving 9 hours down to Orlando & Jupiter Florida for Braves Spring Training... AKL goes every year & I'm excited to go with him this time!

~Needless to say I am doing a lot of traveling in the next 2 weeks... which means I really need to get organized and get everything packed SOON because my school/work schedule this week is ridiculous!

(6) Ok-- & totally random, but I want to add another color into my room. Right now it's grey, yellow, & black & I just feel like it needs another bright color.. I'm thinking of adding turquoise.. What do y'all think?!

(7) I have a lot more to say than I thought I did-- Oh well... Did any of y'all catch the new show on HGTV called Secrets from a Stylist.. Oh yes, def one of my new faves! Not only is Emily freakin adorable but her style is so perfect-- she's so good at what she does! I heart this show already!

Happy Monday--Hope y'all have a great day!!
