Thinking Out Loud

Good morning, lovelies!

It's been a long time since I've written one of these posts...I thought I'd give it a go today, as nothing much has gone on the past week. I've just been enjoying the relaxation time! Plus it gives me an excuse to talk about random stuff. :)

Thank you for hosting, Amanda!!

1. My days/nights/mornings/everything in between are SO wonky! Bedtime right now is midnight or later, and my "mornings" begin at 1pm...oops. Remember when I could hardly sleep in past 8? Ha! I'll be waking up early again soon enough, so I'm just embracing it.

2. I'm in the process of growing out my hair (at least attempting it....), and it is totally starting the "awkward" stage. I don't know what to do with it half the time, so this weekend I just let it be curly, as opposed to straightening it like I do every. single. day. It got crazy to say in the least!! I had to fix my bangs with my curling iron to keep them from going all over the place.

Shameless selfie. Shameless.

3. Speaking of hair, have you guys noticed there are three different hairstyles going on on this blog?! My sidebar pic is from sophomore year (bangs+long hair), my Google Plus profile (bangs+short hair), and my current pictures. Oops!! I've gone through a lot of hair changes...

4. Christmas is in the air!! We just got our decorations up this weekend...mainly because it's been so crazy at our house. Luckily all is well at the moment, and hopefully it stays that way!

5. I'm currently obsessed with chapstick. My faves right now are Bert's Bees Pumpkin Spice and Vanilla Bean. They smell sooo good!

6. I still haven't gotten my dad a present yet. And Christmas is in a week!! He is so hard to shop for for gifts... any ideas?!?! What do men even like!??!?!?!

He was the birthday boy on the 12th. <3

7. As you all know, I love Imagine Dragons and I'm obsessed with their new song, I Bet My Life. Also, their new album comes out tomorroorroorooowww!!!

8. I need Christmas cookies, and I need them right now. Hopefully we'll be getting some baking done today, because it's really not Christmas without cookies. :)

9. I am so, so, so, sooooo missing Disney World right now. No other words are needed.

10. It's that time of year again.....

That's all I have for ya this morning. I hope you have a loooovveellyyy day!!! 


  1. I love your tree! SO pretty! I love all Christmas trees, haha!
    And Burt's Bee's is the bomb! I love the stuff!

    1. Thanks girl! And I do too - my dream is to see the tree at Rockefeller Center. And Burt's Bee's definitely is the best.

  2. OH MY GOSH. So many reactions to this post, I can't contain myself.
