• Rainy Day Activities

    Today was such a perfect day, not only was it Super Bowl Sunday (aka best day of the year - who doesn't love Super Bowl food!?) but it has also been raining/snowing all day here in Kansas City which makes the perfect excuse to stay in bed.

  • My 2015 New Year’s Resolutions

    The days leading up to New Year's Eve were spent at the lake with my boyfriend and my family. I love the lake more than anything, while we were there we all took a walk down our driveway (which is really just a long gravel road) and my sister took this picture... I instagramed it with the caption "Ready for 2015 with him by my side" and my dad looked at it and said "Oh I get it! The road behind…

  • The Thought Process of Final Exams (as told by Mean Girls)

    We all have that one final (or multiple if we're super lucky) that everyone knows they are just going to flunk. It might be the teacher, the class, or your lack of motivation during the semester. But the time has finally arrived-finals. It always goes something like this... You're in class and your teacher starts discussing your final exam. You immediately start planning your funeral. Your bestie starts reassuring you "you'll be fine, you're smart, you'll get an A, blah blah blah"…

  • Wrapping Presents for Dummies (or the uncoordinated like me)

    So I have been alive for 17 years, which means I have had 17 christmases, over 85 family member's birthdays combined (given, I was too young to wrap presents for a lot of those anyways...) and countless other celebrations that have involved giving gifts. Now I LOVE picking out gifts for other people and seeing their face when they open it! Buuut what I don't love is the step inbetween those two, yup - wrapping. I recently got asked to…
