my dad sent this to me in a email a little while ago, and everything is so true -- God made a dog

speech writing 101!

you know it's hot out when...

this is terrible -- it's one of those 'What Would You Do' episodes. spoiler: the only ones helping the girls are OTHER girls and they don't even get to play out the scene with their actors because another real creeper hits on the girls. you'll see when you watch it.

this Pinterest board is so funny and clever. i could look at it all day!

this is such a pretty post by Charity! i don't know how she finds so many pretty flowers.. when i go on walks i can only find 2 types at most ;)

this guy graduated from my high school a couple of years ago and now he seems to be doing fabulous with a well known blog, many interviews, and fashion all around him! check him out!

I REALLY want this backpack!

Friday Fancies: Outfit Crush

I have SO many outfit crushes -- there are so many stylish people out there! but for today I chose Vanessa Hudgens. she's so gorg! and when you Google her, her outfits are amazing. she's so boho and laid back, but really pulls it off in the most stylish way. I love her!

love, right?! so here's my copycat outfit:

free time

this was the first thing I saw on post secret and it's beyond true. I have so much free time this Summer and all I do is sit behind the computer until the wee hours of the night watching Netflix, blogging, playing games, chatting with friends... so sad.

i don't travel much, but i'm super excited for upcoming trips i'm going on! i'm excited to be able to pack my suitcase, come home, and have to immediately switch things out and re-pack it. on Wednesday i'm driving down to my friend Jennette's house and we are going to the beach with a few other friends on Thursday, and then a couple days later we're taking a family trip to New Jersey, and then some time after that we're HOPEFULLY going to Rhode Island to visit RIU! traveling is so great -- i wish i could do it more often and to grander places!
where do you love to/wish to travel?

Gilmore Girls

first and last scenes of Gilmore Girls
i love this show so much. i watch it every morning at 11 on ABC Family and today was the season finale episode -- so sad! so tomorrow it starts up again with the very first episode. agh i just love it! it's weird how tomorrow it starts up with the whole series again.. with all 7 seasons still ahead and so much to happen. or is it just weird that i care so much...?

love these pictures by Jabbeltubel, on Flickr!

here's to Christmas in July

for some reason, i get cravings for other seasons all the time. i HATE cold weather, but thinking about Christmas and wintertime seems to get me really happy. all i'm thinking about is listening to Christmas music, big cozy sweaters, ABC Family's 25 days of Christmas, peppermint lattes from Starbucks, gift exchanges with friends, Elf, and just the happiness that comes with wintertime. even though warm weather is where the party is, don't those things make you a LITTLE excited? ;)

my weekend

i had a GREAT weekend! for the 4th we just hung around, went to the pool, them had a little BBQ at home. then Friday my friend Jennette FINALLY came to visit me! it's been forever since we've seen each other and every time we try to get together, something comes up and we have to cancel.
since she only told me she was coming on Wednesday, i didn't really have time to plan anything awesome, or think of fun places to go. that might sound strange, but i like to have fun things planned so we don't just stare at each other the whole time :) but when she came, we made a list of 20 things to do off of the top of our head. it wasn't the most interesting list, but while it gave us things to do, it also was almost like a scavenger hunt for us and we wanted to check everything off of our list.

i go to this consignment shop all the time and love it, so we went here. one of the things on our list was go shopping: check! we even got matching rings! at a consignment shop! what are the odds?!
we took a picture infront of our friend Alexandra's house while she's in China

then we had an awesome photoshoot!

this was probably my favorite part! we had a tea party under the stars. my deck was perfect for it because we have twinkly lights everywhere and you can look out to the city. after that we closed the umbrella and stargazed.

AND i'll add comments about the tea we drank. it was AMAZING! it's Masala Chai by Tea India. i definitely recommend it. read more about it on The Tea Drinking English Rose!
and then on Saturday we had another awesome photoshoot!

so fun! it was REALLY great! Jennette just makes me so happy and i have such a better feeling when i'm shopping or taking pictures with her as apposed to my school friends. these 2 days with her were just what i needed!
now tonight i'll be going to a baseball game to see our local team, the Revs, play. hope your weekend was as great as mine!
