What I Did This Month... November


This has been a month of quite a few firsts... I got my first job!! I am working at a daycare with kids ages 2-12 in the afternoons after school. I am really liking it, and I don't have to work weekends or Holidays so is is great! And then I got my second job... Back in the Summer I asked my cousin about having a job in his clothing store, and he told me that I could be a gift-wrapper closer to the Holidays. So I am doing that on Saturdays! I mean, I'm not complaining (much), I am making good money! But oh my gosh... I have been so tired!

I started out the month making Triple Salted Caramel Cupcakes for my Mommy's birthday!
The next semi-interesting thing I did this month was go to my neighbor/sister(sort of) wedding! I was a Guest Book Person/Dress Fluffer and Holder/Unofficial Bridesmaid... In all reality I have absolutely no idea what I was! But it was a pretty wedding, and we had fun :)
This was her getting her hair done...

Her and her (now) husband decided to do a first look before the ceremony, they tried to get off to a secluded place... but no such luck ;) We found them out the window of the hotel room and saw the whole thing!
First dance as husband and wife :)
Mom took this picture and I thought it was adorable :)
And this would be me and my adorable boyfriend at the wedding ;)

















"Wait! Take one more picture!" And then she does this... :P Not the best picture of me, but I thought it was cute :)
The Monday after the Wedding was Veterans day, so we had no school! Instead, I worked all day... Ahh the life of a working girl ;)

And then on Friday the 15th Mom and Dad went off to Chapel Hill to watch a Carolina Basketball game (Carolina won!), so me and my brother spent the weekend at grandparent's houses. And then on Saturday I got to go on a date with my adorable boyfriend!! I went with him and his family to a Triple Feature movie at a Drive-In and I can't even tell you how much fun we had! :) We saw Free Birds, Gravity, and if we would have stayed we also would have watched Thor.

The next day (Sunday) we had our Thanksgiving Dinner at my church, and we also decided to have "Old Timey Day"!
Here is me and my bestest friend with my Memaw :)
"Let's take a goofy picture!"
"Ok!" So I took a note from the wedding picture above and gave her a kiss on the cheek ;)









One of the ladies at our church wore a cupcake apron, and since I am have been declared the cupcake queen everyone said I needed one too! After church she came up behind me and tied it around my waist and put her pink bonnet on my head. It was very sweet :)














My little brother played soccer, and his soccer team had a dinner at pizza hut on Tuesday (the 19th)


Doesn't he look cute with his coach!

















Also on the 19th, I saw this when I pulled into the school parking lot!

It isn't the best picture, because I only had my phone with me, but I saw a deer! :) She was just standing in front of my parking spot. I sat and watched her until she wandered off into the woods :)












On the 21st me and my boyfriend went out to Subway after I got off work. We seriously sat in Subway for over 2 hours just talking :)

On the 23rd I started working at the Clothing Store, and I was soooo tired when I got home... But my boyfriend (I like saying that, MY boyfriends ;) asked if I wanted to go watch Catching Fire with him! I really wanted to see the movie, and I reeeeeeeally wanted to see him, so I went! And I don't think I have recovered yet ;)

On Monday the 25th I had a huge paper due... and I made a 99!! That brought up my grade quite a bit ;)

The next day we had a 3 hour delay at school, so I couldn't go to my internship at the Primary school... It was just a cold yucky day...

And then the next day we had the first snow day of the year! And besides not having to go to school, I didn't have to go into work either!





















So I made pancakes for breakfast :)
And then came Thanksgiving :) All of our family came over to our house and spent the evening. We ate, and talked... we had fun :)
And I made Pumpkin Cheesecake Cupcakes! They were Ah-Mazing!!
I spent the next two days of my long weekend working at the clothing store, pretty uneventful :)

I hope you all have an amazing December!! And just so you know, my birthday is in 12 days!!! :D

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…

My Petal Club

A new box!  And a PERIOD subscription box at that!  I love finding new boxes to try out, especially when they are this affordable!  This box is normally $6.99 per month, but if you use the discount code "SUMMER" on mypetalclub.com, this box will be only $3.50!  And let's be honest, one box of pads/tampons is usually more expensive than that, so why not give it a try??

So this box primarily consists of just the period products with very few extras.  This isn't one of the present, feel-good kind of boxes, it just provides you with the necessary products to get through the month, at an affordable price.
Step One The first thing you do on their website is choose the combination of products you will need.  Be warned, you aren't given as much of a selection if you order through Cratejoy like I did.  It worked totally fine and I still got the products I needed, but I like choice!  So I suggest going straight through their website.  You are going to get 30 products total…

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…
