Music Monday

Finals are almost over and then it will be a quick break before we swing into Maymester.
Here is some music to get you through this Monday.
I promise I will be back to my normal blogging self when finals are over!

Lets just say that my mind was blown:

Heard this in the car today on the way home from class. 
Brought back memories of high school :)

...sing it back whoa oh oh oh oh

Music and Motivation Monday

It is that time of the year again, finals week...and once again I am hit with an overwhelming feeling of panic and fury. It is hard to believe that after all of the finals I have survived that I am still convinced they will be the end of me.

Thanks to one of my favorite blogs, I have found some motivation to get me through the next ten days. It is not going to be easy (especially since I thought moving during the middle of finals was a good idea!) but perhaps slightly easier.


As for music today. I think that it is time for a little Taylor Swift/Hunger Games to brighten my mood.
Enjoy....and pray I can make it through!

everyone is waiting for you to break down....keep your eyes open

Baby Fever

One thing you may or may not know about me is how much I am looking forward to being a mother. I have known since I was a little girl that if I was going to be anything, I would for sure always be a mother.  In fact, my goal is to have my first child by 28 (don't worry Jared is aware).

Today in class we learned about developmental milestones of an infant, and just learning about it warms my heart.

Do you know the milestones? Here is a cheat sheet for you:
2 months: smiles :)
4 months: rolls over, reaches, laughs : D
6 months: sits, babbles, transfers objects
9 months: crawls, cruises, approaches object with index finger
12 months: stands alone, walks, 2-5 words

Friends of mine are starting to have babies, and I can't help but catch baby fever every now and then.

The thing that really made my baby crazy today was a video of two twins jabbering to each other. If you did not like babies before now, I am pretty sure this video will convert you.

...also is there anything better than a laughing baby?

wow! a baby!

My sister was in town this weekend (more on that later) and she showed me this video.
We must have watched it a hundred times!

Another favorite this week:

Feel free to dance around like crazy...enjoy!

Easter Basket

I love making Easter baskets!
It is probably because you can fit fun, unique things that the recipient will enjoy all in a neat basket package.

For the last few years, my sister has come to visit me over Easter, which means she gets not one but two Easter baskets. She was not able to come over Easter weekend this year but she will be coming on Thursday and I cannot wait to surprise her with it!

Basket all together

How adorable is this dress ornament?

Cupcake bath fizz

Rabbit ornament

Magnolia body wash

Luggage Tag



Ulta had a great Easter stuffer sale and so did Pier 1 and I splurged a little.

I am most excited about giving baby sister these earrings:

Sophia Studs in Hot Pink

Baby sister is allergic to a lot of earrings, but last time she visited she tried my Loren Hope studs and she did not have a reaction. Baby sister LOVES pink so I am excited for her to open them.

If you have not looked at Loren's site I highly suggest it. I wish I could have one of everything.

You have to look at what a gist says to the other person

April Showers

There is something about the rain that makes me feel so small sometimes. Just when I think my life is out of control and there is no possible way I can complete all of my assignments before their due date, it rains.

Rain always makes me realize how this is nature's world and I am just living in it. It can be calm and soothing or treacherous and strong and there is nothing I can do about it but just let it be. 

When I was little, my mom told me about how when she was little, she would listen to the rain and think about a princess that was wearing a dress covered in beads. Each time the drops hit her window, she imagined the beads moving and making sound on the dress. Lighting was like light reflecting of the princess' jewelry. It is always something I think about when it rains

The semester is winding down and I feel like I am spinning out of control, but then like rains....and suddenly things don't seem so bad. 

And then the rain comes...

Music Monday

I bought the Matchbox 20 "Exile to Mainstream" album about 4 years ago. As a part of it they had a disc of their greatest hits which at the time I listened to nonstop. I just recently started listening to it again and I forgot how much I love them!

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy :)
