Spring Blooms & Week Recap

Let me begin by saying, What’s up, blog world! Long time, no see!

I was wandering around before work enjoying the warmth before the rain started back up. The Square was full of blossoming flowers and bright colors. I couldn’t help but snap a few quicksters. Aren’t these yellow blooms to die for? I’m excited to start gardening soon. I’m hoping to try a window flower box this year! We’ll see how it goes, since I’ve never been much of a gardener. If not a window box, definitely some small plants. I’ve been eyeballing these white polkadotted vases for a while. Someone remind me to snap a picture next time I see one!

Besides these lovely Blooms, what else is new with me? Hmm. How about a quick week recap!

I spent last weekend in Scuba Diving Training, which is 10 times more amazing than you realize. It’s worth every penny, I promise. I was breathing. Under. Water. It was kind of an out of body experience, just suspended in the water for hours. I will be taking my final tests at the end of the month when we leave the comfort of our pool and venture out into the quarry a few miles out of town. The next city over has a diver’s favorite set up, with clear blue temperature controlled beautiful water. I can’t wait to dive in. Literally. I’ll be posting pictures from training very soon.

Oh! I’m kicking butt in my classes. I’m at the 30 day countdown until my Freshman year is officially over. I’m ending it with a bang! I’ve gotten test grades of 89, 96 and 106. Then I got a 90 on an essay grade worth 20% of course grade. So that rocks. Also working on a “Foolproof Process to an A+ Paper” tutoring sesh. I’ve mastered the Research paper process, so I’m looking forward to sharing my secrets!

Hmm, what else. Oh! I’ve developed an addiction to Tupelo Honey Cafe’s biscuits and blueberry jam. I was running short on cash and forgot to pack some dinner the other day at work, so fortunately THC is just across the Square, so I loaded up on biscuits that day…. I know, a box of bread. But I don’t care. I would do it all over again. I took tons of pictures in the restaurant that day, just for one. Once I get caught up on the important stuff, maybe I’ll share! Love me some THC

Oh! I’ve been neglecting my bathroom lately. I’ve been using my parent’s bathroom despite the fact that I have my very own just outside my door. Mine is just too depressing. Fortunately, my parents gave me the “OK” to remodel a little! I’m going to add a shower head and paint over the “Noah’s Arc” animals we painted on the walls  in kindergarten. I’m considering different color pallets. Hopefully I’ll be able to transform it into a college student’s perfect prep room. All this time I’ve been darting through the entire house just getting ready. So you’ll be seeing Makeover Details soon!

By the way, what do you think of this look? I adore this shot by Rocky Caughron! I would tell you all about the details of this look, like the other fashion bloggers do. But with this dress, I honestly can’t remember where I found it. All I can say is, sometimes, basic is better. This basic black slink dress is one of my go-to’s for quick glamour.

I think you are officially caught up, blog world! Hope it wasn’t too much of a SnoozeFest! As for me, it was literally a snooze fest. I am falling asleep here at my desk! Everyone hang in there! – Kisses!
