All Over the Place

     If you know anything about me at all, you know that I have two hair looks – ponytail and down.  When I wrote my 101 in 1001 list I promised that I would try some new hair styles, and so far I haven’t had so much luck.  Today, however…I actually made a little attempt AND wore it out of the house!

     Is it the greatest picture? No.  Is it the greatest braid? No.  Do I think this is going to go viral on Pinterest? Absolutely not.  BUT…I tried, and no one gave me strange looks at the grocery store – success! 
     I’ll keep trying – promise.
     Also, you may remember from a few weeks ago that I won a giveaway or two.  Now that I’m home from school, I’ve been able to actually see my lovely prizes.  From Kelsey Bang I won the most adorable little zipper pouch and bow tie.

     Both of these (and plenty of other adorable items) can be found in her Etsy shop.  Now if only I could convince Keith to wear a bow tie…
     I am still so surprised that I won, and I can’t wait to put my little goodies to good use!
     In other news, I took my very last final yesterday!  Next semester I have exit interviews (no finals), and then I am a college graduate!  I am so excited to student teach and graduate and be a real, married “grown-up.”  I am really loving the season I’m in right now, and I just keep thinking, “A year from now, I’ll be about two seconds away from getting married…”  Wow.
     I know this post was a little all over the place, but that’s me right now, and I’m okay with it.  Summer is just beginning for me, and I can’t wait to get it started!  Eeeeeeeee! (That’s the noise I make when I’m excited.)
