Good Friday Morning to you! I hope you have had a fabulous week and have something even more fabulous planned for the weekend! Since today is Friday (Wohoo!) let’s jump into Five Things Friday.
First How to Make Your Monday Night Fabulous…
Mondays tend to not be everyone’s favorite day, especially rainy Mondays. Luckily, I have a wonderful way for you to make your Monday night rock. Ready?
Invite over a friend who has the most incredible fashion sense to come over, rip your closet to pieces, and re-assemble it as utterly chic complete outfits you never would have put together for yourself in a million years!
My incredible friend Laura, from The Clarity of Clothing did exactly that this past Monday. Guys can we talk about how excited I am in particular about the two outfits she pulled together in the above picture??? I have always loved the individual pieces in both outfits, but never pulled them together the way Laura was able to. There is no way in 1,394,940 years I would have thought to pair the pink skirt with the blue top and you can be darn sure I never would have added the leopard belt, but when I tired it on, well… I’m in love!
Be sure to head over the The Clarity of Clothing for more of Laura’s style!
Second, Double the…Fun?
Flashback to 2011…..
My brother and sister’s high school graduation. These two lil ones are graduating college…. next weekend! I feel like I am supposed to say how weird it is that they are all grown up, having secured real world jobs and getting ready to go on out on their own, but honestly, it doesn’t seem that weird.
My only fear with their “growing up” is the change that may come to our family holidays and vacations. I am excited for their change, and only afraid of the change it means for me.
Congratulations Eric and Mere!
Third, The Countdown is Officially On!
Four weeks from tomorrow, Eric and I will be jetting off to Peru and then immediately into the Amazon before heading to Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley!
Gahhhh I am officially getting excited as opposed to simply overwhelmed. When I think what I am am the most excited for, it is to visit a place an a culture neither I nor anyone I am close with has visited before. This is probably the first time in my life I am truly outside of my comfort zone. I am very independent and handle change well so studying abroad by myself, and moving to a new state be myself after college didn’t bother me. The difference this time is that I feel the burden of responsibility for all aspects of the trip, whether they go well or poorly.
