So I've sort of dropped off the
planet er blogiverse for a little bit, and I wish I had a better explanation for you. The truth is, I've just been lazy.
I haven't been up to much of anything except a few trips to the library, Starbucks, and church.
But excitement is coming! I just know it! In exactly 5 days, 22 hours, and 5 minutes, I'll be moving into my new dorm room!
I can't wait! When I get it nice and decorated, I'll do a Dorm Tour post!
And since I'm working on cleaning out my closet to get ready, I'll probably do a Closet Tour post later this week! I can't wait for y'all to see them! Since I don't really have anything else to share with you (sad face), please enjoy these pictures from my summer:
The summer kicked off with a road trip to Dallas for the Taylor Swift concert with one of my best friends and our moms!
|Our 5th Taylor concert!|
|My Momma Bear loved her sign.|
|We met the band Florida Georgia Line when we were roaming around the Dallas Cowboy Stadium gift shop!|
|See the seats at the very top (next to the lights). That's directly across from us.|
3 rows from the very top.
|We used binoculars. Super handy dandy. (Please excuse my frizzy Texas-heat+rain hair. )|
When I got back it was time to get ready for New York City!
I could do a whole post on this trip (I probably will one day), so I'll spare you with just a few pictures for now.
|My nanny (which means godmother here in the south) gave me a weeklong trip with her and her daughter as a graduation present!|
|We saw shows (Wicked & Annie; HIGHLY RECOMMEND), shopped, saw the sights, and ate some yummy food!|
If you'd like to see more of my New York pictures right this second, I have a bunch on my Instagram.
Then I came back for a weeklong mission trip (in my hometown).
If you've never experienced the joy that comes from helping others who can't help themselves, you should really look into volunteering. I was a mentor in a mission that was held at my own church, which shows that you don't have to travel to far away countries to help people. People need help here, too. Plus, I made a bunch of new friends! (not sure how'd they feel about my putting their pictures on here, so I give you permission to stalk my insta if you really want to see them).
Then Momma Bear and I had a weekend getaway to Perdido Key, FL.
|We didn't let one day of rain stop us from having a good time, either! Can you say "outlet mall shopping"?|
Throw in Starbucks frappucinos, random drives in the Jeep with the radio blaring (can't wait for Luke Bryan's new album!), a few dates with friends, mindless hours spent planning for the future, and you'll have my summer.
Truthfully, I can't wait until school starts! My new backpack came in on Friday and I spent most of the day packing and unpacking it with school supplies.
What did you do this summer? And who else is ready for school to start?
