GONNA BE A GOOD WEEK

Sometimes blogging is just really hard. I know I wrote about blogging on bad days is what makes you feel better, but guys, I have just really been lacking on inspiration. Just a whole freakin' case of the blahs. It had kind of started when I didn't have my phone or computer (PSA: senior year is weird and confusing but do your work) and then I fell behind and ugh it was just weird. And sometimes it feels like you have to pretend like your life is perfect when you're a blogger, but FYI it's not. Nothing bad happened, I just was in a slump but am happy to be blogging!

BUT this weekend has proven to be incredibly refreshing and renewing and I may in fact be as excited as I am in this photo.


I always try to go through my phone to see what sorts of photos I took or things I screenshotted for blog prompts (this might be my favorite tip for blogging), so I have a large collection of random pictures. I deleted over a thousand photos yesterday (okay....um.... I've had my phone for two months and had over 3000 pictures. I need help) and it turns out that most of them are random selfies or screenshots of conversations.



Like, yes, this was apparently important enough to take a photo with. Why am I taking a selfie with a Good Housekeeping magazine in a doctor's office? (oh yeah thought my nose was broken but it wasn't...)




Whatever. I really do have friends, I swear!


Like I'm actually laughing so hard at this GIF right now.

ANYWAY, there were several birthdays last weekend, one of which was at Amerisports (gymnastics place you idolized as a child).


And then at Get Air. Okay, if you live in Lexington or Nicholasville or anywhere near, please go. It's this trampoline park where it really is all trampolines and we had an absolute blast.


The next Sunday was full of English project fun, which can be summed up in this absolutely hilarious/dramatic/not supposed to be funny but it is trailer:


Oh goodness, how I love making videos for classes. 

I wore this all day and didn't want to change out of it, and I have actually found to be one of my favorite comfortable/cute outfits-- these outfits are necessary. I'll have to write a post about it soon!


Grey patterned tights
Brown boots from DSW
Sweater from Old Navy
Scarf from Forever 21
Bag from Vineyard Vines

I've also been counting on high ponies for everything. My hair has gotten so long and sometimes insane to deal with in the weather and I resort to keeping it all the way back!

Monday was President's Day, so I took my fantastic panorama skills and made a fantastic panorama photo of the famous Presidents game (aka the best cards game ever) we play everyday in Calc 2. Had to celebrate the occasion!

I'm really sorry, Bo.

Anyway, the rest of the week was very nice and a little stressful at times, but I've been listening to new music (thanks to the recommendations of certain people, you know who you are) that honestly just makes me so happy. Um, can we please get an award for music that straight up puts you in a good mood? Why can't I have a soundtrack that follows me around school and makes me feel happy?

The weather was so pretty and prompted many questions of style choices. Girlfriends were all texting each other asking whether breaking out the Jacks were appropriate or if it's time to start wearing skirts and...get this...ballet flats and not boots. Blog post to be written soon about some of my thoughts about wearing spring clothes to match the weather, but I think it's all about balance.

new favorite nail color: Thimbleberry from Sinful Colors

Wearing colors that remind me of spring but also with darker pieces that don't scream "IT'S SPRING AND IMMA SHOW IT" are best! So yes, Friday night was fun, and then Saturday, we hit up Engineering Day at UK (hollaaaaa).


Everyday I consider myself lucky to live in such a wonderful city!

Okay, okay, fashion choice of Saturday on the beautiful day was basically all black. I'm sorry that my legs are too white to see the sun and that my favorite cardigan is black. 


And then, because we were in such a good mood, cheesy pics in front of Memorial Hall.

 But this one wins awards of all sorts. WHAT IS GOING ON WITH OUR LEGS?

Maybe I say literally too much, but I literally do mean it. 


Did anyone see the House Hunters where the couple was looking in Lexington?! This is right by there!

Saturday night was a fun one with friends, where I wore those same black leggings/pants (they're from Old Navy and really thick, just a morph of the two really), my favorite peplum top, a jean jacket from American Eagle, my Bow Tie earrings from Lilly Pulitzer, and cheetah print flats. So comfy and it felt chic.


This morning, my Sunday School class went to Dunkin Donuts, one of my faves. Side note: when we went to Boston and all around that area, our constant joke was the abundance of Dunkin Donuts. They are everywhere

Regardless, I was bound to try the new cookie dough donut. Ummmm, yes, it was incredible. (I also tried the new Cookie Dough Oreos and yes, I love them. Say what you want about them, but I think they're great).

As we were sitting down to eat our glorious donuts, who did we see? Coach Cal, of course (UK basketball coach). And what did we do other than freak out? Take pics like we were little kids. I don't even care. He's cool.

What's funny is that last time I saw Coach Cal, it was in that same Dunkin Donuts, and one of my friends actually found the same awkward creepy selfie we took with him.


Just so many wonderful things that happened today and this weekend and so I'm ready to get on the blogging train again!! 

How was your weekend?

xoxo,
Meredith
