Today is.. my birthday!

I am officially 19 years old!!!
Today is my birthdayy! It is the first time in YEARS where I have had class on my birthday since usually I am off for spring break during my birthday. It has been a wonderful day so far and I was awoken by a lovely seranade from my Zeta sisters and my parents. It was so cute and definitely made me feel better about not being with my parents on my birthday. After one more class (and a test!) my friends and I are going off campus for dinner! Yaya!
Hope y'all are having great weeks so far!
xx, Birthday girl!

Beauuuutiful welcome home

Happy Monday y'all!

I am "home"/back to school! Back to the bussle of homework, sorority activities, and friends. Although I was sad to leave my parents and the comfort of my own bedroom and bathroom, I am so happy to be back. It kind of takes being away to make you realize how much you love something. My first day back started off wonderfully because it is sunny and warm here today! It was the first day in monnnthes that I woke up and actually did not feel super tired and wanted to get up. It is absolutely gorg here today, sunny and almost 60! I traded in my North Face fleece for my favorite Lilly sweatshirt instead! Brought out the topsiders and sunnies too! With only 5 more weekends of school (can you BEELIEVE that?!) I'm ready to capture the moments I love soo dearly and enjoy being with my friends! Oh what a beautiful day :)
Hope y'all are having good Mondays!
xx, M

Help needed - jean 911!

Hi y'all!
Here is my dilemma. While I have been home on break, I had looked all over for a pair of jeans. We looked at Nordstrom Rack, TJ Maxx, and Lohmenn's. Absolutely noo luck! It seems like the biggest problem seems to be a gap in the back area. Do y'all know what I'm talking about? It seems like they fit perfect until I look and see that there is lots of space in the butt area. It's quite frustrating and I definitely need to get a good fitting pair before I go back to school on Sunday. Ideally I'm looking for a pair that works with my Revas, heels, and are both going out jeans and casual jeans. Our next stop is Nordstrom and J.Crew, hopefully I can find something!! Do y'all have any suggestions?

Thank you y'all!
xx, M

Spring break!

Hey y'all!
I am writing to y'all from home! It is sooooo nice being back home and getting away from school. Although I love school, my friends, and my routine, I was definitely ready to get back and see my parents! It had been 9 weeks since I had seen them! I got in on Thursday and have had a super great break so far. My wonderful Mom had a few surprises waiting for me in my closet!

After the airport we went to dinner (real foood!) and it was yum yum. Then on Friday my mom and I took the El (the like Chicago Subway system) downtown and went shopping! Oh my gosh, y'all, we hit the shopping jackpot! First, we hit Nordstrom Rack. Thinking it may be a bust, we were optimistic but weren't sure if it would be a miss. We were sure wrong! I got the CUTESST things for soo cheap. I finally found a white dress for all of our ceremonies (the only one in the entire store!) and I also finally found a good fitting pair of black pants. Do y'all have trouble pant shopping? I have grown to despise it! I am kind of short and have a teeny waist but not so teeny legs so my pants are always too big in the waist or too long! But finally I found a good pair and I went down a size! I also got this really adorable Juicy tshirt and a few more pairs of sweat pants. Now I know that y'all are not always pro sweat pants but for class they have become my best friend. I'm going to post my comfy made cute outfits later this week! Anyhoo, I also found a very Betsey Johnson esque shirt for guess what.. $9! Thenn we headed over to the TJ Maxx and hit the sale jackpot again! I got the absolute cutest dresses ( I will post them tomorrow!) for less then $20 each and a Lilly gray pullover for $30! It is really adorable and will be perfect for class and wearable during all seasons. SO cute! It was by far one of our best shopping trips and truly a great time. It made me even more thankful for my relationship with my Mom and the opportunity to go shopping. Here are a few items from our trip!
