so here's the thing

Sorry for the absence again! My computer is practically fried and I am just too scared to turn it on sometimes! I always think of these great things to write down, but they never actually make it on here... sorry about that. 

so here are a few things I am loving this week!

{morning lattes from this coffee shop that used to be a news paper}

{work clothes-business casual of course.}

 {exploring downtown}

{feeling like an adult with a real job}

{spending me time at the gym}

{exposed brick}

{breathing fresh air}

{pushing myself to new heights}

{remembering all our laughs}

{getting up early and starting my day off right}

{cute new clothes for a cute new job}

 {high heels-sassy ones at that}

{open fields}

 {fresh cut tulips}
 {living vicariously through my friends' travels}

I hope everyone has a fabulous rest of the week and weekend! hopefully my computer will miraculously fix itself!

Oh, and I started my internship this week.  I LOVE it! I couldn't be happier! I feel like it is only going to get more challenging and rewarding as the weeks come at me!

the decision

 i decided to move home.
for those of you who have read this here blog prior to this post, you may know that i faced the difficult decision of figuring out where to live next year (i am a student who goes to school close to home) and i made the decision. 
i compromised with the parents, and it seems like they are pretty excited to have me back but i am a little weary.
chores scare me, because living on my own i have made my own time to do my own things at my own pace. 
it will no longer be that at home. 
i will be on their time, in their environment and their home.
scary, but it will work with some patience. 
the upstairs of our house is a mess.
one bedroom is empty and was deemed "wedding room" for my sister's upcoming "i dos"
and another is my sister's old room that has random things from her childhood
and my bedroom has a brand new queen size bed, and huge dresser, which completely take up the entire space
and did i mention that every closet is overflowing?
problem indeed.
my parents are graciously letting me redo my bathroom. 
i won't show you a picture because it is that bad. moons and stars.
and hopefully we will get around to changing one of those bedrooms into an office space since i will need some sort of study area
and a bedroom?
we haven't exactly figured that one out.
i love the stuff i have right now but it doesn't fit in with any of the bedroom color schemes
and my parents of course painted/outfitted my room as soon as i left!
so here are some inspirations for what i hope to get out of this redo... more to come as the projects get underway, or even become written plans.



a new beginning

remember this little blog i made back in november?
sorry i have neglected you so!
it has been so weird not documenting the little things i think about randomly
but i am glad to be back.
after almost a month of cramming for exams and computer viruses
i am excited to be back sharing all the exciting things going on!
i could write a book of all the things i wanted to write about from etsy to vacations to surprises and laughs.
anways welcome back all you in this little family of mine
i have so much appreciated all the encouragement y'all have given me through twitter over the last little while.
can't wait to share all the sweet nothings about life i have started to open my eyes to! 

if you get a chance google ipersonic and take the free personality test... it is ridiculously accurate! i did it with a few of my friends last night and oh my gosh the laughs we had! it is a great way to pass a little bit of time and it is only 4 questions. 


tonight is my orientation for my summer internship at a public relations firm downtown. 
i'm nervous excited and a little stressed about what i'm wearing.
business casual is supposed to be easy, but right now i'm struggling
all i want to do is slip some cute 
skinny jeans, ankle boots and a cute top on 
to head out, but i just can't bring myself to wear jeans to a firm! 
just a little bit of venting. i will jot a little later!
