My Week in Instagrams

Hello blogging world! As always, I've missed you guys and my blog during my latest "prodigal son" phase. *Insert typical "life is crazy" sentence here* At any rate, this post isn't a real outfit post or anything, but while I had the time I wanted to update with something, so I'm using Instagram once again for what it's good for. Also, I'm blogging from the Blogger app on my iPhone, so there is only so much I can do.

The past few weeks have been something of a whirlwind, between making big life decisions, signing up for classes (yep, I'm going back baby!) job hunting and just trying to remain sane in general. Through it all, I've learned that one of the best ways to relax is a hammock. I was lucky enough to get one from my friend Trey, and have been obsessed with my new baby ever since. $8 hammocks at Wal-greens cannot be beat. (shameless plug)

I also had a visit from a lovely friend of mine, Hali. Check out her blog at www.plunderwander.blogspot.com. It's always nice to know that even if you live a long distance away from a friend, the relationship doesn't have to end there because you both value the friendship enough to still communicate and visit. Those are the kinds of relationships that are meant to be preserved, honestly. It was great to catch up while downing shots of whiskey and chasing them with Yuengling. An A+ weekend, if I do say so myself.

Last week also consisted of a wedding. One of Trey's good friends from high school got married and we had the privilege of getting to attend. It was a nice, simple arrangement and everyone was so welcoming. I learned that I should meet more of Trey's friends. I hadn't realized that before this I'd only met maybe one or two?

So my birthday is next Monday and I found the perfect shoes for it (that anyone can feel free to purchase for me, if their heart desires). Cute, brown Jeffrey Campbell platform sandals. WITH RETRACTABLE WHEELS. Fuckin' cutting edge, if you ask me. Anyhow, we'll see how that goes. Honestly, I just want to be with a bunch of friends, see Wye Oak the night before and get good and drunk for my birthday, and I'll be content. I have a feeling that might be what goes down. Either way, I'll keep you guys posted with pictures and much detail of what goes down in the coming week. Until then, take care lovelies! Xoxo
