Friday Faves

May 20, 2016

Oh Friday! Hey, so glad to see you!

My Friday favorites post is not covering this last week- it is covering the last couple weeks! There has been so much going on I haven't had a lot of time to sit down and write. BUT I am making time now and that's what counts!

First off, WHOO HOO!! My new logo and site are up!! I am so excited for it!!! There are a few kinks  that still need to be worked out- like the size of the slider- but all in all I LOVE it!!

Nathan and I attended the Cameron Area Chamber of Commerce Banquet. His mom is the VP and it was Gatsby themed so of course we went! I loved getting dressed up and my friend Micha did my hair for me.

We got a PUPPY! Meet Moose! He is 16 weeks currently but we got him at 12 weeks. He is a Yorkie and a little fireball- so so so happy! We are working on potty training, nipping at hands since he's teething, and playing lots and lots.

I took my last final ever and GRADUATED! ICYMI: check this post out!

We gave our dining room a major makeover! It took forever since we had some set backs (I'm looking at you chair rail that left holes in the drywall) but we got it done finally! We absolutely love it!

My Momma (mom-maw), Aunt Patti, and my other set of grandparents have all visited within the last two weeks which was so nice! We did plenty of shopping and eating I can tell you that.
Mother's Day was filled with fun! We had church in the morning and exchanged cards/gifts over eating left over BBQ from my graduation party. We ended the night with breakfast at Perkins and some family photos.

Nathan and I celebrated 4 years of dating on the 9th which is so amazing! You might have saw that on Insta already though!

What are some of your favorite things from the past couple weeks??

Linking up with DarciLizNatasha, and Christina at 5 on Friday, Spetember Farm + The Farmer's Wife for Oh Hey Friday, and A Little Bit of EverythingMomfessionals, and Grace and Love with Friday Favorites!

20 Books to Read in Summer 2016

May 18, 2016

Is anyone else just super ready for summer?! I know I am! I can already feel the sun shining down on me laying by the pool with a good book in my hand. Speaking of books- here is my summer reading list!

1. Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter - I actually have this one checked out right now and I am excited to start reading it.

2. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by JK Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany - Um HP yes!

3. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes - I've heard super cute things about this and the movie trailer looks so good!

4. After You by Jojo Moyes - Sequel to Me Before You

5. The Heir by Kiera Cass - I enjoyed the first three in the series and I am excited to read this one. There is even one more out too!

6. How to Be Single by Liz Tucillo - Recently made into a movie

7. The Weekenders by Mary Kay Andrews - Perfect summer book!

8. The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith - Robert Galbraith is actually a pen name of JK Rowling and is a series about a serial killer!

9. Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee - The second and last book by Harper Lee. I loved To Kill A Mockingbird so I know this will be great.

10. The Island by Elin Hildebrand - I've actually already read this and it is really good! It is another perfect summer book.

11. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins - Similar to Gone Girl I've been told

12. November 9 by Colleen Hoover - Romance with a twist

13. The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman - Super great book! I have been meaning to read this entirely for awhile now but just haven't gotten around to it.

14. The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan - Based off of the Royal couple Will and Kate! Eeek! Royals!

15. Broken Grace by E.C. Diskin - Amnesia and a murder? Mystery thriller!

16. Dime by E. R. Frank - This book is going to tear my heart out but I need to read it. It is about a teenage girl "rescued" from a broken foster care system by a pimp. It is eye opening and shows the horrors of human trafficking and prostitution.

17. The Lake House by Kate Morton - A family member disappears and years later the mystery starts to unravel.

18. The Guest Cottage by Nancy Thayer - Great summer book!

19. The Fixer Upper by Mary Kay Andrews - Another great summer book!

20. Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling - She is so hilarious! This book just looks so great!

What are some of the books on your summer reading list? Any suggestions for a fall list for me?

(My brother, John, and I- my SIL Molley couldn't stay for the whole ceremony, she had to work)

(My Aunt Patti and I)

Wow! I can't believe that I am finished with undergraduate! It is so exciting!! I can officially say that I have a Bachelor's of Science in Biology with a Chemistry minor. I was a member of Sigma Alpha Pi: The National Society for Leadership and Success and Alpha Chi which is an Academic Honor Society for the top 10% of the school who have been nominated by faculty.

I wore a sash that had half the German flag to represent my study abroad experience and my big medal represents the Honors Academy- let me tell you, it wasn't easy. My next stop is medical school (which you could see on my cap) and I have lots and lots of studying to do! I take the MCAT June 18th and I will start my application next week. There is a very long road ahead of me and I would appreciate all your prayers!
