zero three

day three- a picture of the cast from your favorite show

that 70's show! i swear i was born in the wrong decade! i loveee this show!

gossip girl
i have an unhealthy obsession with the show.. mainly with

blair waldorf aka leighton meester 

chuck bass aka ed westwick (hottttttttt)

they are so meant to be together and i wish they would be! (i can still dream, right?!)

well in other news i just received an email about the new lilly pulitzer printed cruiser 
you can find it here!
i'm pretty sure if i had this bike i would be out riding everyday, i wonder if they'll be coming out with a matching helmet :) this is getting me even more excited for summer than i already am! well now i gotta work on lesson plans, and get ready for zumba! we have recruitment workshops all this weekend and we're going to auburn university sunday to have a workshop with alpha xi s there, so it should be a lot of fun :) hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!
Much Love!

day two

day two: a picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest

well... there's a few :)
three to be exact!

my mom

don't think it's lame, but honestly my mom is the person i've been the closest with for the longest. i am who i am today because of her and i am so appreciative of everything that she does for me and everything that she has taught me!

jLl and me on nye

let me tell you the shortened version of our story... we've known each other since 8th grade when i moved to a new middle school. we were just those people who just knew who the other was but not the close friends until our senior year. and pretty much we've been best frannns ever since! i cannot imagine not having her in my life!!

steph! (this pic is SO old.. 2008... but i LOVE it)

this is the girl who got me through high school, i was a freshman, she was a senior and lord knows i would have been soooo lost without her those years! and she's still helping me through the rest of life! ha! but i'm super sad that we don't get to see each other as often as we used to but every time we get together it's like we were never apart.

oh and i just HAVE to mention this convo that i had with one of my sweet little kindergartners today.

C- "are you married?"
Me- "no, i'm not married."
C- "do you have a boyfriend?"
Me- "no, i don't have a boyfriend."
C- "well most student teachers do."
Me- "oh, is that right? when you grow up are you going to have a boyfriend?"
C- "i don't ever want a boyfriend... i just want to marry justin bieber!"

hahaha how presh is that!! it's the little things like this that make me love being a future teacher!
Much Love!

never have i ever....

used so much hand sanitizer in my life!!! i had my first day of student teaching today and i LOVED it!!!! those sweet little kindergardeners just stole my heart. however i am exhausted . literally, i don't know how people do this everyday! i guess i'll get used to it eventually. but boo for having a quiz in class tonight PLUS a council meeting. my bed is looking better and better. i better find somewhere else to study before i crawl under the covers and sleep through everything tonight. (although that idea really doesn't seem half bad!) i kid i kid, sorta. off to study, hope everyone has had a wonderful tuesday! i know i have :)

love is all you need

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!! since today is Valentine's Day i decided to change my font color for the day. i know that it could be so easy to absolutely hate this "made up" holiday but i just can't! even though i don't have a boyfriend this year to celebrate it with i still have my family and friends to share it with. who says it's just a day for couples?! if you love someone and they are special to you, i think that it is wonderful to have a special day to remind them that you love them. but i'm not gonna lie, i would just LOVE to get one of these babies on Valentine's Day... or ya know any other day....

i just think he is so presh! although i'm not really sure what i would do with him or put him. ha!

however, i know exactly what to do with these! yum yumm!

me and the lil decided that we are going to have dinner and/or dessert together tonight to celebrate Valentine's Day AND our very first day of student teaching tomorrow so i'm pretty excited! 
well i'm off to class and a quick run on this beautiful day! who knew february was going to be this nice out?! i'm sure ready for warmer weather. well once again, Happy Valentine's Day yall! don't forget to let the special people in your life know that you love them. you don't have to just say it today because of what day it is, but tell them everyday. because everyone loves to hear that are loved :)
Much Love!

the "lost" week

since i've been so negligent to my blog (so sorry friends) i figured it would just be easier to catch up with bullet points and pictures (because let's be honest, who doesn't love pictures!!) 
  • my wonderful rooms turned 21, and we celebrated last thursday with basically everyone!!
  • me and a bunch of my sisters went to alpha xi delta area wide training at Georgia Tech on saturday. their house is BEAUTIFUL!!! and so is their campus, confusing, but so so pretty!
  • sunday was preview day at my school and being a university ambassador and all i was giving tours like there was tomorrow! yeah, i had no voice by the end of the day and was so tired and hungry, but i absolutely love preview days!
  • my homework for my art and music class was to color a picture that describes me!! how ballin is that?! and in class we painted a picture of a sunflower. i love love love my major! i can't wait to be a teacher! and yes, my picture is hanging on my fridge! 
  • i finally went to ZUMBA!!! (best workout EVER!)
  • ruined not one, but two pairs of kakis pants in the wash yesterday because i accidently left chapstick in the pocket of one of them. booooo! but no worries, my wonderful mother "has a coupon" (her very words!) what would i do without her?! so let this a warning.. don't ever ever ever leave chapstick, crayons, or pretty much anything in your pockets when you wash your clothes. my lesson has officially been learned!
  • yesterday, was also my sororities double blue crush party!!! yay! i just LOVE crush parties *smiles* it was also my first one being 21 so pluses all around. unfortunately i forgot my camera at home (insert shocked/sad face here) so sorry friends! but i'm going to "borrow" some from rooms, i'm sure she won't mind!
with that being said, let the picture begin!!!

well that's the basic overview of my "lost" week. hope you all are having wonderful weeks as well!!
Much Love!
