Life Lately

Spring semester is absolutely crazy. So many events, crunch time for classes, the weather changing constantly, it's all really a lot. But of course, it can all hopefully be documented in photos.

I guess the last time I posted about random life stuff was after spring break and it feels like so much has happened since then!

St. Patrick's Day was right after we got back and was fun to see all my friends again!

My best friend from home, Adam, and other good friend, Ashley, came to visit from UK on their spring break! We had a great time that weekend and it was so nice for them to be a part of my life here.

And another thank you to sweet friends for letting me borrow their clothes.

Though I had talked about how great Richmond's shopping selection was, I had never actually experienced it, so we took a trip to Short Pump, the main mall here where Vineyard Vines is. We also went to Carytown and then Pink Palm, the Lilly retailer right next to campus. So many gorgeous things!

The weather just gets nicer and nicer, and it was especially nice this day. I'm wearing my Target sneakers (just absolutely the best pair of shoes. I don't even care, I love them.), a long sleeve navy dress from Marshall's, and a necklace and jacket borrowed from friends. I have my favorite Tervis with my Southern Society Company decal (that has my monogram and Kentucky!)- be sure to use code 'SCROGGIN15' for 15% off!

I also had a nice Friday downtown, visiting the Martin Agency and at cute coffee shops while on a field trip. Sometimes days off campus are just so needed.

Beautiful days like this call for baseball and iced coffee. Such a pretty season.

I was lucky enough to get to go to a fraternity formal weekend and had an absolute blast. I learned how and painted a cooler (that wasn't the greatest) in just a few days...another blog post for that maybe later? I was sad I didn't get to go home for Easter, but at least being away was nice. An absolutely beautiful weekend at Smith Mountain Lake!

And a few in betweens-

I SWEAR BY ROCKSBOX. It's my favorite thing. It makes me so happy. For those who haven't heard me blab about it, it's basically an old school Netflix process for jewelry. You fill out your style survey and have three unique designer pieces sent to you for however long you want to keep them. When you're finished with your set, you simply send the box back and they send you a new set. For a month free, use code 'meredithxoxo'! I loved the double backed pearls so much that I ended up just buying them!

There are few things I love more than staying in on nights and relaxing.

Probably one of the absolutely coolest things I got to experience was meeting a blog reader at Richmond! Sweet Caroline was visiting UR and it was so fun getting to have lunch with her and talk about the school. 

And of course, the one thing everyone keeps bothering me

March Madness began so well and I was so excited. Beaming with Kentucky pride.

While my Cats were seeded #1 in the NCAA, our Spiders were #1 in the NIT and of course we went to support them. With a sad loss, it felt okay because I still had so much faith in UK.

But sadly we lost in the Final Four and I've never felt so heartbroken? It's just one of those things, man, that gets you going. Real sadness. And now it seems like when someone I meet finds out I'm from KY, they ask me if I was upset. YES. I AM. And now so many of them are leaving. But it's okay, historic records already and a lot of hope for the future.

I hope to have my Pigroast post (that rhymes) up at some point, such a fun and traditional day at UR!
