the random thoughts of my life.


- Instagram-ed for the first day in a week yesterday. (breaks my heart)
- Got through an extremely stressful week last week
- Praying for direction, patience, and understanding
- Wishing so badly that I could just hop on a plane and travel the world!
- Missing my Dallas friends, oh-so much.
- Watched all the Scream movies. Had nightmares that someone was trying to kill me. Dumb decision. I know.
- Trying desperately NOT to cut my hair. (When it is at the "in between" stages, I just want to chop it off!!)
- The weather has been a bit chilly. It is making me miss the warm weather we were having around here. I suppose I didn't realize how grateful I should have been while we had it!
- Went to the gym the other day! I felt fantastic afterwards. :) I hope I continue doing so.
- Spicy Ranch Dressing is the BEST!!
- Coral & Mint fingernail polish is the cutest colors for spring.
- I remember how I read non-stop growing up. I wish I still did. I don't make the time anymore. :(
- I still LOVE coffee. (**prove below)

- I am getting four days off of work. It has been glorious so far.
- Zooey Deschanel and I should definitely be friends, along with Michelle Williams, Emma Stone, and Jennifer Lawrence. :)
- I want another tattoo. Srsly. Soon. I am thinking for my birthday next month!?
- Loving the fact that there are so many lovely women (and men) out there with encouraging, funny, and inspiring blogs.
- I dream about one day waking up and I being british. :)
- I have never liked my hands. They look old and wrinkled to me. :/
- I am looking forward to a fun roadtrip with friends this coming Saturday. It is much needed.
- I am going on a hike this morning and hoping I don't feel sore tomorrow.
- Bethany is coming home from Haiti in about 2 weeks, and I CAN'T WAIT TO MEET HER!! :D Srsly. I am pretty sure we are going to be great friends.
- I love Jesus. I'm glad he is my best friend.

That's it for now.
Nothing too exciting, but thanks for reading.
much love to you all!!
Happy Friday.

      My friend, whom is Irish, once said I had a "whimscal" accent.
      I'm pretty sure he was lying. ;) ha.
