Guys, I know when I popped in last week to say hi, I promised a Five on Friday, but then Friday kind of turned into a traveling whirlwind! And same for Saturday. Since Friday, we've gone from Clemson, SC to Columbus, OH to Chicago, IL! Whew! So far, Spring Break 2014 is a blast! I decided to tack a plus one onto my usual five as some sort of "I'm sorry for slacking on blogging" thing.
1. Like I said, I got a new phone on Thursday! Yay! I've had the iPhone 4 (not 4s... Just plain old 4) for three years now, so it was about time for an upgrade. A few weeks ago, my phone decided to stop sending and receiving texts randomly, and I got tired of being paranoid people would think I was ignoring them on purpose. So, if I have any friends out there who feel snubbed, just know it was an accident. And I'm sorry. And you should resend that text now, because I have this!
Okay, so it looks pretty similar to my old phone, with a pink Lifeproof, and whatnot... But it's amazing how much bigger the screen is and how much faster this phone is- the home and lock buttons even work! Score!2. New shoes. Since I gave an example of new being good, it's time for some bad: new running shoes. As much as I wanted to love these Adidas Energy Boosts, I just couldn't. They did feel fab on my feet as a ran, but the left shoe hit my ankle at a bad spot. After too much bleeding and too many gross blisters, I realized my feet just weren't adjusting. Sigh. Now I have to find a new new pair of shoes, because my old shoes are wayyy too worn, and I need a new pair for my half marathon pronto! I have less than a month (eek!) until the race, and I want my feet to be used to the new shoes. I'd take any suggestions y'all have!
My first (and last) picture wearing these beauties... RIP, Boosts (and subsequently, blisters!).
3.PLL Obsession. Y'all, my PLL obsession is bordering on dangerous. I've never binged on Netflix before, and I didn't understand how people could get so sucked into a tv show. Oh how I wish I could go back to those simple days... Now I'm a season deep in Pretty Little Liars and I can't stop watching! It does get a little tricky, because while I'm watching old episodes on Netflix, I'm also watching the new episodes as they're shown on ABC Family! Tuesday is the season finale and I CAN'T WAIT.
Honestly, it's a good thing I've been so busy during the days, or I really would be dunzo with the entire show by now!
4. Lately I've been to a couple parties that are very "out with the old, in with the new." A bridal shower for my sweet friend, and a 21st birthday party! I was excited to help Juleah say goodbye to single life as she opened fruit infused water pitchers and fine china! I missed the shower I helped host (all the bridesmaids went in together), but I was able to make up for it by jotting down the presents she received at her shower. It sounds silly, but it made me feel like a total bridesmaid! I don't have any pictures of the shower, but I do have this super natural-lookin' selfie because I wanted to show the dress to my mom.
So thankful for my sweet friend (and Corey's girlfriend) Morgan for letting me borrow this classic J. Crew scalloped number!
As for the birthday party, I had a chance to help my sweet friend Leslie celebrate her 21st! I put this little sursy together before the party, because I was on a bit of a festive kick...
Some bunny is 21! Mini champs bottles plus Easter grass plus mini Reese's eggs equals a hoppin' good time!
As Christine (pretty girl on the left who NEEDS HER OWN BLOG! hehe) put it, we're the three amigos of Early Childhood! I have almost all my classes with these precious friends- isn't Leslie adorable in her birthday garb?!
I know John loves me because he humored me with a trip to the American Girl Place- I was in heaven the first time I visited with my Bitty Baby! It's been over thirteen years since my last trip to Chicago, but this store was still just as delightful! (John didn't quite "get" it.)
I hope y'all have a happy Saint Patrick's Day tomorrow and take advantage of a new week!
