In case you couldn’t tell, I’m always wearing a crossbody purse. They are my absolute favorite. I don’t like huge bags and this one from Coach is probably the largest (and most expensive) one I’ve had. They’re just so easy to carry around. In this picture I’m carrying Continue reading “Why crossbodies are my favorite…”→
We took these pictures my graduation day and I’m so in love with the dress I wore! They’re all sold out online now :( it’s like a creme color and had scallop trim around the top. I love scalloped anything right now. I’m also in love with this boy in case you can’t tell ;) I’m so Continue reading “White lace…”→
As of Saturday, I can say I am officially a college graduate! And I applied for my teaching license! I’m so excited to graduate but scared about going into the real world now haha! We had a fun day celebrating, eating cake, and opening presents. Here’s a few pictures with Continue reading “Graduation…”→
So this happened over my spring break! I went to see Andrew in Knoxville and he had a surprise trip for us. I had no clue where we were going but he told me to wear the dress I had packed. It was kinda freezing and I hadn’t planned on wearing my black sweater and my black tights (just one or the other) but I hope it didn’t turn out too bad together haha. Anyway, we got on the interstate and headed towards Asheville, North Carolina. I Continue reading “The Biltmore and I’m Engaged!!!”→
I think Easter is definitely one of the happiest holidays, right up there with Christmas. Bright colors and cute spring decor everywhere makes me so excited! I’m really into bright colored anything and bring on the warmer weather haha. This year I didn’t have time to go pick out an Easter dress. I love getting a new one to wear but it just didn’t work this time so I ended up in one I’ve worn several times. It’s a blush shade which went perfectly with Continue reading “Easter Weekend”→
Lately I’ve been wearing lots of blue. I’m all about navy and shades of blue with white this spring. I love this pleated dress and got it on sale at Dillard’s. Sadly, they don’t have it anymore but I linked the brand, GB, for similar ones. Hope everyone has been having a good year. I know I’ve had a super busy one so far. Sometimes it’s good to just take a step back and think about what’s really important to you. I have been so busy I’ve missed out on a lot. I’m just trying to look ahead and think of where I want to be and what’s Continue reading “Shades of Blue”→
Hope everyone had a great New Years!! I’m so excited to see what 2016 has in store for Andrew and I. Can’t wait until we actually live in the same town! I know 2015 has been a rough year for sure with my mom having breast cancer, my dad having heart surgery, and now my grandma in the hospital. It’s also had some positive aspects like going to Disney World for the first time and student teaching in an amazing kindergarten class. I can’t wait to graduate in May this year and get started on the next chapter of my life. Continue reading “Winter White”→
I can’t believe Christmas is already over! Andrew and I managed to make it to Opryland Hotel this year to see the Christmas lights. We went with my sister and her boyfriend. It’s always fun to see the new way they decorated and look at all of the gorgeous flowers. It was super crowded like always when it gets close to Christmas. We got some Starbucks (the vanilla bean creme frappucino tastes just like snow cream, I’m in love!) to actually cool us off not keep us warm haha! It’s been in the 70’s here IN DECEMBER! It’s the weirdest thing.
I wore this lace black dress I got from H&M. I couldn’t find the exact one online but still saw a few in the store the last time I went. I always get so many compliments on it (and I only gave $12 for it!!). I’ve been wanting a longer sweater for dresses but it seemed like I could only find super long ones so I was so excited when I found this one from Forever 21, and it doesn’t feel cheap either.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and has a very Happy New Year!!! Love you all and thanks for reading!
Andrew finally came home after about three weeks! I think that’s like the longest we’ve been apart so I’m glad that school’s about over. We got to go on a date night to see Mockingjay Part II and it was SO good! We went and ate at Chick-fil-a afterwards and just talked for a good hour. I needed a break from school.
This picture is from the book character parade we had at school before Halloween. The kindergarten teachers and student teachers dressed up as superheros. I’m number six of the seven habit superheros. I wish I could show a picture of the kids…they were so cute in their costumes!
My sweet baby sister, Jessica, and I after church. I even managed to do a braid in my hair and wish I had a better picture of it.
I love this picture of my grandma petting one of Jessica’s baby calves. Jessica bottle feeds the ones who lost their mother.
Rebekah and I went to Target and found this double headed sweater and thought it was hilarious! If you go to an ugly Christmas sweater party then definitely check this one out haha!

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and is having fun getting ready for Christmas! I’ve been so busy ever since the week of Thanksgiving. I’ve been decorating, shopping for Christmas presents, working on homework, and getting ready for finals. I can’t wait to finish up school so I can start doing all of the fun Christmas things like looking at the Christmas lights, making cookies, watching Christmas movies all day, and drinking hot chocolate. Hope everyone is having a great week, love you all!
It’s like overnight the leaves finally started to change colors, and they’re gorgeous! I have to say Tennessee definitely has the best fall season when it comes to all of the trees changing color. I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet but I’m already ready for Christmas…it’s like I’ve worn out all of these fun fall things and I’m ready to move on to the next holiday haha!
If there’s one thing you’re going to see a lot of this fall and even winter it will be the scarf and booties I’m wearing here. They are my favorites right now. I don’t know if it’s because they go together perfectly or what. It just makes me feel put together when the top of my outfit matches with the bottom haha! Does anyone else feel that way? I guess it’s kind of like matching your shoes to your outfit. I don’t really care for dark colors and just want bright colors in every season so adding a neutral colored scarf and shoes kind of tone down my light pink dress that would have looked like it was meant for spring. Oh and about the booties…I’d recommend getting one with a low heel since you’ll probably wear them more that way. I have a pair that have a 3 inch heel which is still not that high but they just don’t work for everyday like the ones I have on in the picture. I think those are like a 2 inch heel.
I went to a pumpkin patch with my kindergarten class for a field trip and it was a lot of fun. The kids got to pet and feed little baby goats. They are the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! Then, they each got to pick out a small pumpkin and put it in their bag to take home. It was the sweetest thing to see them all excited about their own little pumpkin. I can’t wait to have my own baby because I know it’s going to be even sweeter to see their reactions. Don’t get me wrong they have their not so sweet moments but for the field trip they did pretty well. I hope everyone has a great week and Thanksgiving is only three and half weeks away!!!
