Coffee Date #5

Hey y'all!

So I realized I unintentionally took a week off of blogging...I don't have much of an excuse other than the fact that finals happened and I was crazy busy ending my semester. While I wasn't blogging, I tried to stay active on my social media accounts, and I wanted to do a roundup/life update with all the photos + some personal ones to share what I have been up to lately. 

Red Cup Celebration -- basic, but I love the Starbucks red cup and the Peppermint Mocha makes the perfect winter treat. :)

Christmas party. A few weekends ago, my roommates and I threw a Christmas party and invited all our friends. I baked a ton of goodies with my new KitchenAid mixer and we had so much fun. Pictured above are my adorable roomies and my boyfriend and I! This look is coming to the blog soon so keep your eyes peeled!

I am obsessed with pink roses! They might be one of my top favorite floral arrangements. I also am obsessed with this mug -- my bestie Shelby actually got it for me last Christmas and I use it all the time. 

If you've been following my Instagram, you would know that I am in a cheetah print phase as of right now. I have always liked it, but I have just been wearing it a ton, along with these red flats. They are perfect for the holidays and are so affordable!

Thanksgiving on the farm. A few weeks ago for Thanksgiving, I went out to my grandparent's farm to spend the holiday. Some of my favorite memories are made out there. Here I am with all of my girl cousins, my grandma and I, and then two of my cousins. We had a mini photoshoot with each other which was so fun and all the photos turned out sooo cute!

Shopping for Christmas. I love how fun and festive all the stores are -- and I have loved planning and purchasing gifts for all my favorite people. Have you read all of my gift guides? I linked them above in case  you are in need of some inspiration.

Decorating my house. This is one of our cute little Christmas trees we decorated up in our house! I had so much fun making it look as pretty as possible. I also have a whole blog post here about how we decorated our little college home for Christmas. :) 

I am loving suede and flannel together! I have worn this look so many times recently, I can't get enough of it! I will have a whole post up soon with all the details but for now you can shop it too. :)

I celebrated ending the semester with a big breakfast out! I think breakfast is my absolute favorite meal ever and I would so much rather eat brunch/breakfast out than any other meal!

As for a little life update, I am so excited that finals are over. I did well on them, so my hard work definitely paid off. As of last night, I am back home with my family and it feels so good. I am so looking forward to relaxing a bit, working some at the local boutique I worked at over the summer, and doing a little traveling for the holidays. I finished up all of my Christmas shopping yesterday, so that felt good, too! This year I am really excited to give my siblings and parents their gifts. 

Next week I also turn 21, which is crazy! It seems sooo old, which I know its not, but still. My two best friends, Shelby and Carolina, are coming down to visit me and celebrate, so I can't wait. I know I will miss them so much over break, so it will be so good to see them less than a week after I leave for home :)

I hope you all enjoyed this little catch-up blog post. Thanks as always for reading, I really appreciate everyone who reads and comments! I have a ton of exciting and fun content coming your way now that finals and school are over for over a month! Can't wait to share with y'all!
