Rainy Day Friday

Hi! Does anyone else find it nearly impossible to wake up on a rainy day? There's something about the sound of rain falling outside that makes me want to stay in bed and sleep for a few extra hours. Unfortunately, I had to get up at 6:15, just like any other day! I've had a few exams already today, and thankfully I am almost done for the day! Even better, I dont have school tomorrow, so I am just 3 short hours away from the weekend, which I could not be happier about! Tonight will be a lazy night spent at my friend Alexa's house with Brynn, Rosie, and Kara. We have big plans of watching 500 Days of Summer, eating too much food, etc! These girls are some of my closest friends and we always have a great time together, no matter what we're doing! It's always nice to loaf around at the end of a long stressful week!

Tomorrow I will be waking up early (on my day off.....) to go pick up a friend at school in Connecticut. We plan to stop in the beautiful town of Westport for a nice lunch and also to go to Vineyard Vines! This VV store is one of the closest to where I live, and it is still an hour and a half (or so) away from home. It's always so exciting being in a VV store.

Even though Halloween JUST passed, I am so excited for everything the Holiday season has to offer. I am seeing more and more Christmas-y things everyday! I'm getting holiday edition magazines in the mail everyday already! Also, the red Christmas cups are out at Starbucks (SO EXCITING!!!). I love EVERYTHING about the Holiday season and I am a certified Xmas freak. I literally am a different person arount the holidays. I am so excited for seeing family, giving gifts, snow, hot cocoa, cuddling, etc!!! So much excitement from here on out!

Does anyone have any fun weekend plans??

I'm Back!!!


I have been a terrible blogger for the past couple months. I stopped blogging over the summer when life got busy and now that I am done with all of my college applications, I am absolutely going to start blogging again! For the past two months or so, I have been busy and stressed with college applications! I applied to schools here on the East Coast and in the Midwest for Physician Assistant programs. I would ABSOLUTELY LOVE to go to school in Boston and eventually work at the Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC. Now that my apps are all sent in, I just have to focus on keeping my grades up for the next couple of months!

FALL is finally here and I could not be any more excited for the leaves changing, my wardrobe changing, my FALL colors makeup palate, etc!! So exciting :)

Gotta run to class now, but I will post again soon!

Vineyard Vines Themed Crafts

Hi! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Weekend Recap:
Friday- I went to a Greek festival with the girls in our town! We go every year and it's always a great time! The food, music, and jewelry was amazing! It's so interesting and the Greek dancing is beautiful and so enjoyable!
Saturday- I took the SATS (so exhausting!). Saturday night I had a movie night with a good friend and we watched Valentines Day. It was good but kind of a knock off of He's Just Not That Into You and Love Actually (my favorite movie EVER). It was cute (only because I love love!) but also very complex and confusing.
Sunday- I went to my friend Phil's graduation party. The venue was beautiful, the food delicious, and the company great!

Now on to Today! Jeanne and I sat outside and painted some Vineyard Vines themed crafts! It was so fun and I think they came out pretty well! Jeanne made a big VV whale with her monogram underneath and I made a VV themed picture frame with my monogram at the bottom as well! :)

Please excuse the bad picture quality- they were taken on my blackberry.

Memorial Day Weekend Recap

Hi! I hope everyone had a GREAT Memorial Day Weekend. I love MDW because it gives me a taste of summer and motivation to kick into high gear for the last week of school before summer begins!
Friday- Did some chores during the day, hung out with the girls!
Friday night: I made dinner for the girls (Wine&Dine!). It was a great time, filled with chatter and laughs! I can never get enough of my best friends, we all mesh so nicely! After dinner, Jeanne and Kir set up the bonfire for us (putting those 'girl scout' skills to good use!) We had some s'mores around the fire and stayed up late chatting!

Saturday- Jeanne, Kirsten, and I went on a hike! It was so great! We are all athletic girls but we have never done something fun like that together! It was a great way to exercise, chat, and bond all at the same time! The weather was perfect and the reservation we were hiking in was very picturesque.

Saturday Night: Jeanne and I got a bite to eat and then saw SATC 2!!! I loved it. Even though I may have liked the first one better, and the critics are giving it terrible reviews, I can NEVER resist ANYTHING SATC. The clothes were fabulous and the filming/scenery was beautiful as well.

Sunday- A beautiful day at the beach! Jeanne, Jill, and I went to visit our best friend Marie at her summer home. The weather was perfect and we hit up the famous local Mexican food joint, Surf Taco.

Sunday Night: A FUN night out with the girls! Wild Wild West themed... :)

Monday- Breakfast with the girls at the local bagel place, Bagel Chateau (BEST breakfast place around). We also had friends over for a Memorial Day BBQ Monday night. All of the summer food (watermelon, burgers, etc) put me right in the Summer mood! Ahh, so close! Only one week and one day away!! Yayyy!

Did anyone do anything fun this weekend?!?! XOXOXOXO
