Music Monday, Run-Around by Blues Traveler

This week, we are taking a trip back to the 90's. I had forgotten about this song up until I was flipping through radio stations the other day and heard it! I think this song is so catchy. Hope you enjoy this flashback!

Music Monday, Counting Stars by OneRepublic

I am currently in love with OneRepublic. This song makes me think, "Don't be afraid to dream." On a regular basis, I daydream about all the things in my future. My future husband, my kids, my house, and my business. About what I want my wardrobe to look like or what it would be like to live upstairs in a downtown building. A lot of ideas pass through my mind during the day. Pinterest doesn't help my girlish notions either. I'm working towards some of those ambitions becoming a reality. Don't be afraid to dream and act upon it! (Assuming, that those aspirations are positive.) These are just a few thoughts for Monday. Hope it's been a good one!

Music Monday, Two Is Better Than One by Boys Like Girls

I think this song is so very sweet and my heart melts anytime I hear it. Boys Like Girls is a typical boy band, but they have a sound that I really enjoy. I soak up music like this. Of course, that's probably just my inner pre-teen speaking. Also, I may or may not have this song on my list of possible wedding music. You know how it goes. Anyway, hope everyone has a great week!

Music Monday, Cups by Anna Kendrick

This song has become one of my favorites to listen to. It may be over played but I absolutely love it! The "cup" game was a cafeteria past time at my church camp every summer. I joined a few times but I honestly found watching more entertaining. This video is pretty cool and took a lot of coordination! If, by chance, you haven't seen it, enjoy!  Have a great week everyone!

Life Gets Crazy

Hello everyone! I'm back! I would like to say I took a vacation for the summer.. but then that would be lying. My summer was super busy.

 First, I'm sure everyone heard about the tornadoes in Oklahoma a few months back. The community where my church is, was hit really hard. Lakeview became a Tornado Relief Center. I did a lot of work up there over the course of it all. My kind mother was up there almost every day serving food to every person that walked in the door. Her heart is so beautiful.

I was also taking care of "my kiddos" quite a bit with school being out. They certainly brightened up my summer! Every day is a new and exciting adventure with them. I'm so blessed to be a part of their lives!

I did the Color Me Rad 5k! I had the event written on my to-do list for the year and I followed through. I'm not much of a runner (yet) but it was still a blast! Mom and I went with a group of ladies from our church. There were so many runners in crazy costumes. I got a little color on me but I wasn't covered in it like some people. Afterwards, we ate at Toby Keith's and aquired some strange looks.

The finish line!

I did some cakes here and there. One was super stressful but turned out beautifully. It was all fondant and for a Beauty and the Beast themed wedding.

My younger brother moved out and is now engaged! (I'm feeling really old right about now.) The wedding is November 2nd and I get to be a bridesmaid. I'm so excited!

I went on a trip to Dallas with my best friend and her brother for a concert in June. IT WAS AMAZING! Say Anything and Eisley were the headliners. If you haven't listened to some of their music, you are missing out. We were probably the last ones to leave but got to talk to several band members. The late night was totally worth it and they were totally cool.

I turned 22 back in August and I gotta say, it's treating me well. Also, Taylor Swift's song does not accurately portray what being 22 is like. Not my life as a 22 year old anyway. My itinerary for the day was pretty full. I opened presents with my family in the morning and ate the traditional blueberry breakfast cake. Season 1 of Adventure Time and a bike rack for my car were my gift highlights. For lunch, I went to the Tea Room for Jane Austen Day with my mother, Aunt Marcie, and MamMaw. (Which, if you know me, is totally perfect.) We dressed all nice and wore hats. The atmosphere was so elegant that it made me giddy. I went back to my grandparent's house and unwrapped the most beautiful record player. It plays everything! Alyssa and I enjoyed some snow cones before going shopping. After that, I went up to Bricktown with Reghan for a night on the town. I gotta say, we were looking goooooood! We walked around, ate some tapas at Bolero, met up with my brother, and chatted for a while. My day was so extremely blessed by my family and friends.

I feel like I've kind of caught up a bit. I will not even TRY to make up on Music Monday posts so just be looking for a new one on Monday. I'm sort of renewing this whole blogging thing. There may be some new direction coming to this little blog of mine. I'm gonna do me and post whatever comes to mind.

On a related subject, my best friend Reghan started up a blog; Go check it out or you will be sorry. I'm not threatening you, promise. You will just be missing out on something incredible that you're bound to love.

I think that's it for now. Life sure gets crazy! I've definitely rambled on long enough. Hope everyone has a blessed week!
