Outer Banks 2013: Day 7, Thursday June 13th

10:30 AM
Goodmorning everybody! I have been up since 8 this morning, but just now got the chance to write! We have been pretty busy getting ready this morning, because today we are going to Cape Lookout! It is an uninhabited island in the OBX, with a lighthouse on it. It is sooo pretty, and has some of the biggest seashells I have ever seen! We are driving through Harkers Island right now to get to the ferry that will give us a ride over. Our directions for getting to the ferry was to drive until we ran out of land, and that is where they would be :) It might be a while before I post again, but when I do I will have a yon of pictures!!
Other than that It has been a fairly uneventful morning so far. But guess what I had for breakfast! For once, not a muffin! I had a Krispy Kream doughnut :) I am such a healthy eater ;)

4:30 PM
Just got off of the Island! We had so much fun :) The very first thing the "Captain" said when we got on the boat was
"I am saying this because the Coast Guard makes me... If the boat happens to sink for some reason, we will drop the life jackets, just don't panic! The best way to avoid drowning, is to just stand up... The water is about three feet deep all the way across. The only way you could drown is if you just refuse to stand up..."

Gah... I feel icky sticky nasty sandy yucky GROSS!

6:00 PM
We decided to go back to Beaufort and visit a few of the shops we missed the other day. Once again, I got another book. But this time it was against my will... My school has Summer Reading work and I have to read The Scarlet Letter... woo hoo...

8:00 PM
Tonight we decided to eat at the Clam Digger Inn. It was ok, not amazing. I had Chicken Parmesan  Now we are on our way to play Putt-putt one last time!

9:00 PM
Finished playing at Professor Hacker's Lost Treasure Golf, which was very fun :)
 I finally got a hole in one! Everyone in my family (including my eight year old brother) had gotten one this week except me, and I finally did! :)

10:30 PM
I am absolutely wiped out... I have been updating and checking and fixing and reading and I am about to fall over! It has been a very long and tiring day, so I think I am going to bid you all Goodnight and talk to toy tomorrow! Love you all! :)

College Countdown: Dorm Tour

I think I finally got my side of my dorm to look how I want it to this year, and I am absolutely thrilled with it!

I chose the colors yellow and grey, which isn't what I'd usually pick, but I've been thrilled with the way it turned out!  I'm not going to mention where every little thing is from, if you want more information on that you can check out my Dorm HaulI posted earlier this week, but I will do my best to hit he highlights!
First I will start off with my desk area.  From right to left I keep my makeup in the drawers I DIYed, my makeup mirror from Amazon, my desk organizer filled with legitimate desk things, as well as more makeup and makeup brushes, my tea station with my chip mug and honey, my textbooks, and finally my sticky notes and Ray Bans!
The wall above my desk I turned into sort of a gallery wall!  It has been a process to get all of this up, because anything even semi heavy continues to fall down!  From top to bottom: I picked up the canvases at a bi…

Country Concert Lookbook

Early this fall I will be going to a Brad Paisley AND an Avett Brothers concert!  So when I found out King Ranch Saddle Shop was looking for inspiration when it comes to country style I had to share my ideas!  It is the dog days of summer, with hot days and cool nights here in the mountains, so I tried to create looks to fit all weather and styles!

Sassy  For the budding flower child who needs to show a bit of a wilder side and have fun for the night!   This is a crop top and basic jean shorts, which could be subbed for light wash ripped skinnies if the venue is going to be cooler (which is actually what I wore to a Flogging Molly concert last fall!). Crop Top: American Eagle Shorts: Hollister Flower Crown: Claire's

Sweet  This is for the sweet girly girl who still want to show their country side.  It is a simple white lace top dress, to which I have added a red flannel for those cool Summer nights.  The flannel could be tied around your waist during the day, or substituted for a d…
