October Insta-Recap + Favorites

As Fall settles in so does the stress. School work is piling up, I am more homesick than ever, and debate is frustrating. It's just that time of the semester, unfortunately. Right now it's hard for me to conceptualize how I can successfully do everything I want to, but I am sure I'll figure it out ... I always do. Until then I am just going to keep pushing along, take a few deep breathes, and enjoy my senior year.

I went pumpkin picking with my best friend. It was a beautiful day and just the type of break from school that I needed. Spending time outdoors; running, fishing, pumpkin picking, whatever is the best for of stress relief. Check out my post from my visit to the pumpkin patch

Officially hot drink season 

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't in love with our freshman boys. They're all absolute sweethearts. A few of them started a republicans club on campus which is pretty awesome.

After tournament weekend after tournament weekend I feel like I am constantly traveling. 100% exhausted 24-7.

School. Ugh. Please be easier.

I've been trying to get back into healthy habits, but it is oh so hard. 
Especially when it is always raining or absurdly muddy outside.

October Favorites <3

"God Made Girls" - RaeLynn

This song is so sweet. I have had it on repeat basically all morning. The video is worth a watch as well! RaeLynn is awesome; I can't wait to hear more from her.

I bought this will a sale coupon and wear it almost every day. It's warmer than my favorite Shep Shirt and beyond cozy. They have it in quite a few colors now too. It is a little boxy though so I would suggest getting a smaller size.

Sherelle is everything I want to be in life. She's my new blogger crush. Her and her husband are wheat and potato farmers in Idaho and the blog is wonderfully done. I can't stop looking at all the beautiful photos of her family and farm. 

Even though the entire month was a struggle, October was very enjoyable. How was your October?

Also, if you have instagram comment your handle and I'll follow you. :)

September Insta-Recap + Favorites

September came and went before I really realized it was here. Alot of fun things happened: I started my senior year of college, we had our first two debate tournaments, and I moved in with some awesome new roomies. I was going to write about this being my last year of school and how I've been a little sad over that, but I am trying to avoid those feelings so we'll focus on positive things :). 

Will and I went to the State Fair. If you haven't already, check out my post about our visit!
I moved into the BAE (Best Apartment Ever!) with three other ladies that I'm looking forward to spending lots of time with this school year.
We went to Kansas City for debate! I had an amazing time even though my partner and I weren't as successful as I had hoped. It was a great way to start off the season. There was alot of good food and old friends. :) #PDXcarpet
Kansas City is full of the best food I have ever ate. Ever. (Sorry Mama!) This is from Oklahoma Joe's.
I finally got around to wearing this headband I bought from a Native American woman on the 4th of July. There's really no reason to include this picture other than I wanted to show off how cute it is. 
This is the team at the Northwest Warm-Up tourney. I love this team. My partner and I were fairly successful (we made it to quarter finals, I was 5th speaker, and she was 2nd speaker) which was really encouraging!

September Favorites <3

I am head over heels for this vest. Desperately I tried to get my hands on the similar one J.Crew had last winter but no-go. Expect me to wear it in multiple outfit posts this fall. I'm going to wear it practically all the time (and I won't even feel bad about it.)

"Dirt" - Florida Georgia Line
Maybe it's part of how homesick I've been lately, but I can't get enough of this song. I currently have "you know you came from it, and some day you'll return from it" written on my white board. It's a beautiful song, and really touching for those who have strong hometown roots.

This stuff has kinda killed my diet, but I don't even care. It is so good. If you haven't tried it then go buy some right now, watch Gossip Girl, and have the perfect night alone. Definitely my new favorite B&J's flavor. (Sorry Willie Nelson's Peach Cobbler!)

My Lilly Pulitzer Agenda - $28
This is my third year using a Lilly agenda. It's always exciting to start a new one. Does anyone else use a Lilly agenda? Or if not do you have an agenda you prefer?

Alrighty. That's a basic recap of my September life. Hopefully now that I'm all settled in I will be able to find more time for blogging. 

What was the highlight of your september?
