Mud on the Tires.

Needless to say,
my birthday weekend was a great success
I am so blessed!
It started off with a delish meal at SATCO
and I picked up my friend Christian from Belmont
who I have not seen since graduation
and the food was to die for
love me some tex-mex
then off to Sweet Cici's for a treat
the night continued and another friend from high school came down to visit
Saturday, we headed to Bread & Co for an amazing lunch
chicken salad - omg.
then downtown for a little boot browsing.
and back to get ready for the Jerrod Neimann, Darius Rucker, Brad Paisley concert
We traveled to Cristine's house where her mother made an amazing home-cooked meal
she even had Chi O colored flowers!

my delish cake from Whole Foods!

my sweet girls
every one of them is a blessing.
and of course the main event....
the concert.
Literally all I could've hoped for and more!
we had a bird's eye view
but we rocked it in the top.
such a fun weekend
I am exhausted
and not ready for another week of school
but I'm going home on friday and so very excited about that
a little belated birthday celebration is in store with some of my best friends from high school.


Georgia Woods.

For those of you who do not know--
Keith Urban is my favorite.
not only is he sexy
he's Australian
and so legit at country music
and his concerts--- oh, they are incredible.
ha enough of that
his song is the free download today on iTunes
"Georgia Woods"
go get it.
it's so good- especially with the sun shining and all
always makes me want to roll the windows down and blare me some country music
well today, I went with Hannah to get my birthday present 
I hate suprises?
andddd ended up buying a precious swim suit from VS
check it out.
I realize this picture is a bit scandalous
sorry about that.
the top I bought is different
it has a bow on it
but I loved the print
you can get yourself one here



I cannot wait for this to come out
It looks like my new fav. chick flick
esp with mr. dreamy and kate hudson
sigh sigh.
take a peak.

Jesus Calling.

I have a little devotional book called "Jesus Calling"
if you don't have it... get it.
I can't tell you how many times I've been blessed by it
like this morning for example
I woke up an hour before my alarm
and spent some quiet time with God
and here's what I read:

February 18th
I AM WITH YOU. These four words are like a safety net, protecting you
from falling into despair. Because you are humans, you will always have up and downs in your
life experience. But the promise of My presence limits how far down you can go. Sometimes
you may feel as if you are in a free fall, when people or things
you had counted on let you down. Yet as soon as you remember that I am with you, your perspective
changes radically. Instead of bemoaning your circumstances, you can look to Me for help.
You recall that not only am I with you, I am holding you by your right hand. I guide you with
My counsel, and afterward I will take you into Glory. This is exactly
the perspective you need: the reassurance of My Presence, and the glorious hope of heaven.

Powerful words.
I needed to hear that so badly this morning
If our God is for us then who could be against us?
A thing I need to be reminded of frequently.
If you didn't notice the author-- Sarah Young-- writes as if God is speaking to us, His children
It's all the more powerful that way.
I hope you have a blessed friday.



OH how I love this fab. weather
Literally makes me want to go run in the Quad.
Obvs I would look real weird
but Hannah and I did go on a "power walk"
and a little power shopping as well
I bought this necklace at a cute boutique here in town
I saw it yesterday with Lauren and could not stop thinking about it.
Excuse my white v-neck
It doesn't quite go with the outfit.
butttt it's presh
and looks almost like the Stormy Seas necklace I'm dying for from Anthro
so I'm a happy little camper.
the windows open. the birds are chirping. the weather is BEAUTIFUL
literally can't stay cooped up anymore.



My birthday is soon.
February 26th to be precise.
I love birthdays.
Not just mine
All Birthdays.
It's your special day-- you should be treated like a princess
filled with cupcakes, nail polish and friends.
As you all know-- I'm traveling to Nashville with the girls
for the Brad Paisley/Darius Rucker concert
Honestly, can't hardly contain myself...
I've been thinking of what I 'want'

What do you have to loose?



well hello there

just call me Snookie.


hello all.
tonight is the first dress rehearsal.
I have to be ready soon
so I'll make this brief

Rule No. 80

Sometimes the only thing that can heal the soul is the sound of a steel guitar and some heartfelt country lyrics.  Always have a country CD or playlist handy for those trying days.  Or for throwing a party.  Garth Brooks is a crowd pleaser.  Without fail.
Right now Lauren and I are jamming to some country tunes
aka Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, Jarrod Niemann
getting ready for their concert in Nashvegas
could we be any more excited?
not at all.
wish me luck! 


In my sparse spare time I have been searching
I have never done this before 
but I love it.
I suggest you all sign up and give it a try
I've found some mouth watering recipes I can't wait to try out
I had practice tonight for four hours
and tomorrow for almost eight.
I will needdddd this
in honor of the upcoming Valentine's Day
just a little FYI
I love VDAY. 
with or without a boyfriend it's a great holiday.
full of chocolate, candy and pretty red and pink hues.
yes please.
off to get some sleep
I have to wake up at the crack of dawn 
no big deal.


Caffeine Necessary.

step sing season is in full mode
for those of you who don't know what that is exactly
it's a talent show on steroids
groups competing for the title-- Sweepstakes.
singing, dancing, the whole nine yards
I've been stalking dance vids. online and have been inspired
please please watch this
University of Georgia has got some game
(UK is still better)

I wish I could move like this.
needless to say, most moves would be deemed inappropriate by Samford terms
off to blog for class.
yeah, I said it.
excuse me?
for those that are slightly intrigued here's the link
