Fill in the Blank Friday!

Good Morning and happy Friday! Today, just a little writing about myself for Lauren's....


1.   One of my happiest moments ever was  when I found out I got into law school. I didn't end up going (thank heavens), but I worked my little tail off to get my GPA up, take the LSATs and apply. It was like a 2-year process and it was so encouraging to come out of it victorious. Now, if I were a lawyer today, it may be another story. I love the feeling that I could have been.

2.  Summer is wedding season and weddings are    FUN. Sometimes I can get a little bit down about wedding season, It's hard to be the single girl. But, lately I've really been thriving in the the greatness that is a party thrown for people you love that you get to enjoy with other people you love...and typically, you get to wear a cute outfit. YES!

Me and two friends over-partaking in wedding fun. 

3.  This summer     I've been LOVING my new home in Austin. I've gotten to go out on the lake several times (thanks friends who've invited me) and am rockin' the best tan I've had in years. In Dallas I didn't get nearly as many opportunities to enjoy sun and surf (or lake).

This floating stroke of genius is called a "Relaxation Station" and is pretty much the comfiest way to enjoy the lake.

4.  My summer food of choice has been   Fruit, fruit, fruit. I eat healthy fresh fruits year round, but I recently have been living off the stuff. Cool and light, it's the best snack ever. Hi, can you say frozen grapes? Nom Nom Nom.

5.  My summer uniform has been     sundresses. It's literally too hot (triple digits for the last month) for pants. The flowy, breeze-welcoming freedom of a dress is about all I can handle. A rough thing about the summer is that without jeans on (ever) I can't ever tell when the muffin tops are creeping up. That may be an ugly September surprise. For now, bright dresses galore.

6.  If I could spend the entire summer in one location I would choose    perhaps Denver, CO. I just got back from there and it was like stupid perfect. Ordinarily I'd tell you the beach, but this may be a whole new world of favorite climates for me...

I snapped this beauty on my hike last weekend, before I blacked out and gave up trying....

7.  My summer anthem is  "Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster the People. It's a new discovery and I'm LOVING. Light, upbeat....fun. They're coming to ACL Festival in September and I can't wait!

Friday hearts. Stay tuned for newsflash greatness!


  1. I downloaded "Pumped Up Kicks" just yesterday....another piece of evidence pointing to the fact that we may just be related.

  2. I'm from the Austin-area growing up & it's definitely one of the most fun places to hang out during the summer! stopping by from the link up :)

  3. Oh I love the Relaxation Station! Too fun.

  4. I didn’t get into law school, but I passed the LSAT with pretty high scores, so I probably could of. I ended up being a paralegal and loved it (I quit to have some babies; I’ll go back to work eventually). I get all the perks of the field, but no responsibility and no long hours. No big money either, but that’s ok. I love that relaxation station!!! I’ve never heard that song before, but I like it!

  5. I want to lounge on the relaxation station STAT.

  6. Omg...I've had 'pumped up kicks' stuck in my head for the last week, I love it!

    That relaxation station looks like it'd be so much fun! Fruit has got to be my favorite things to eat in the summer because it's so fresh.
