i know sometimes Instagram posts can be boring if you follow me on Instagram, but here are some pictures:
Rita's is FINALLY open!!, my friend gave me cd with SO many great songs on it for my birthday, this is my favorite dress right now -- so cute!, i got all organized and i feel SO good!!

my bunny phone case that i'm in love with AND it's a great conversation starter!, i had to take pictures for photography class and i felt like a real photographer with the lights and everything, I Love Lucy marathons make me so happy, i have a new obsession: drawing on myself with Sharpie. it's weird, but i can't stop!
it snowed here last Monday -- crazy!, i bought face masks & hair products & powder & lotion and gave myself a spa day on Thursday!, we painted Easter eggs yesterday, i babysat for the first time in a while last night and i did the little girls hair and i'm SUPER proud of it! look at it!!
happy Easter! enjoy it with family, friends, and many blessings.

Friday Fancies -- Pretty in Pastel

happy Friday! no school today -- thank God! i've been sick for the past couple days and i'm really hoping it blows over before Easter. i'm also really hoping that it's warm for Easter! just the other day here in PA we got about 4 inches of snow. no okay!

anyway.. pastels equal warmer weather, right? i can't wait to start wearing flowy, floral dresses again! and in the middle of Winter i bought a pair of fuchsia pants and i really want to wear them when it gets nicer. maybe not as dressed up as i made this outfit ^ but you get the point :)

link love

love this^^
SUCH  a cute dress!
aww -- i would cover my whole room in these!
Zooey Deschanel? is that you? haha -- this girl has the best Flickr!

SO CUTE!! i have anchor earrings, but not studs. if they were studs i'd probably wear them more!

my grandparents have a house by the marina in Maryland and my grandpa loves sailing -- this would be so perfect for their house!

and while we're at the Anthropologie website, these flats are FREAKIN adorable!

aw! i like this idea -- it reminds me of Tea Time with Sophia Grace and Rosie :)

this literally made me die laughing hahaha it's not as funny as i'm making it sound

this is my favorite recipe right now! i've made it a couple times and i highly reccomend it!

have a great week!

Loving: that the weather's getting warmer! i CAN'T believe Easter is just a week away -- crazy!
Thinking about: the SATs. i'm taking the first test in June and still haven't signed up! yikes! i'm really worried the June one is going to fill up, and then i'll have to take them in the middle of Summer.

Watching: EVERYTHING. American Idol (go Angie!), Survivor, New Girl, Snooki and JWoww, The Apprentice, The Amazing Race. i care a little more about reality tv than i do my research paper. is that bad?

Listening to: right now i LOVE the song When I Was Your Man by Bruno Mars. SO GOOD. oh and The Boxer by Jerry Douglas ft. Mumford and Sons.

Working on: not caring about what people think of me. i've been trying to work on this for a while, but i'm so tired of getting to talk to people and having my face turn bright red for no reason. i mean, come on, face!! hopefully nest year i'll just have that 'i'll never see you people again, so let me act like myself' attitude.

Wishing: it was Summer so i could be free like a bird!
what's currently going on with you? link back to me!

Friday Fancies - Lace Love

happy Friday! oy vey.. it's the end of a long week. we had off on Wednesday for 'snow' that turned out to be just a lot of rain. i shouldn't complain, but now i have gym class on my birthday :( (which is Monday!) and we're starting our research paper now, so for the next month it's going to be craziness. at least i finished my research book! that's probably what i was worried about most. but enough of my high school problems!

Diamond Candles

have you heard of Diamond Candles? it's a candle with a ring worth $10-$5000 inside of it! i love them so much because they throw out SO much scent! you don't even have to light them, really, you can just take the lid off and they'll smell up the whole room! anyway if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you've probably heard me mention my Diamond Candle a couple times because i'm only slightly obsessed. ;) but you should definitely check them out!

Friday Fancies -- Bling Bling

well happy Friday!! i was lucky to have off for a teacher in service day today. so i don't wanna brag, but.. :) anyway! this week for {av}'s Friday Fancies, we're blinging things out! i've seen this look everywhere -- when people layer a chambray shirt and a sweater and then wear a really fancy necklace. i really like it, but i would never wear it because i get to hot with layers. or with anything, really. but don't get me wrong! i love the way this looks on other people!
