little miss i’ll get tough

today i did a little antique store perusing.

bought a copy of treasure island from the 60’s.

& a few more little gems.

i went by the craft store to get supplies for my sister baby shower in august.

i also got annie a new toy, but after barking at it for a few minutes she’s back asleep.

lazy pup.

it’s insane how much you can get done when you get up before 8.

silverware art


love this idea for a kitchen or dining room.


there’s a side to you that i never knew

i’ve been extremely busy lately.

now that the spring quarter is over i’m working full time at my internship (which i love 20 million times more than going to class).

but i’ve been spending a lot of time alone.

it’s nice, i get to think a lot.

(which isn’t always good but the quiet is a nice change).

i think about the past 3 or 4 years & how things have changed.

i think about how i ended up in charlotte.

i think about how i love parts of charlotte, but also still wish i was somewhere else.

i think about going to europe.

i think about falling in love.

i think about how i thought my life would be at this time.

i think about what i was doing last summer, the summer before & the summer before.

i think about what’s planned for my life, that i don’t even know about yet.

it’s been nice to have space & quiet to think.

& i’ve been listening to this song over & over.

remind me

omg. it’s thankful thursday already & i’m still thinking it’s tuesday.

i realized on like saturday that i missed thursday last week.


i’m back to linking up with julia & jamie this week!

[one] i’m thankful i finished my last class of the quarter YESTERDAYYY.

[two] i’m thankful i have 3 weeks of NO CLASSES, i’m getting a little exhausted, hence the inability to remember what day it is.

[three] i’m thankful i’m only going to be working ONE job now, no more bookstore after today, but i’ll be working more at my internship.

[four] i’m thankful for only TWO more quarters of school, then i GRADUATE.

[five] i’m thankful it’s only TWO more weeks until i can go to the BEACH. i’m soooo ready for some salt air in my life.

don’t be stupid

happy monday morning!

i had a busy but super productive weekend.

i worked late friday night, had a chi omega alum meeting saturday morning & worked a few hours after that too.

saturday when i got home i was in the mood to clean up & out.

& that’s what i did.

i took a few dresses & some shoes to my cousin & packed up the rest for giveaway.

& it’s rare that i get rid of shoes.

i love mondays because i love monday confessions.

[one] i love shania twain & i’m glad she’s back! i’m going to have to go to vegas next year to see her show. i’ve been listening to my shania twain station on pandora all weekend.

[two] i spent saturday night home, by myself, watching sabrina. i love audrey hepburn.

[three] i think i am going to cancel my gym membership because i just don’t have time to go. i can run outside & i started jillian michaels 30 day shred yesterday. but i haven’t totally made up my mind yet.

[four] i’m super excited in less than a month (july 6th) flipping out will be back on 🙂

[five] i’m obsessed with smoothies lately, especially double banana & honey.

van gogh cake


i LOVE this cake.

have a happy monday y’all 🙂

dear pippa,

i want all the dresses & skirts you wear.

i absolutely love this dress….. who wouldn’t?

it’s my favorite color (or lack there of) combination.


& this one is just too cute for words.


& if skirts looked like that on me, i’d never wear pants again.


so after you’ve worn them, since you’re photographed all the time & can’t wear them again, please send them across the pond to north carolina.


all i really want is more than this moment right now

saw this abc’s of me on ty’s blog a few days ago & thought it was cute, so i copied 🙂

ambition: to help people.

bad habit: biting my nails. i gnaw my nails as short as possible & don’t even realize it until an hour later. i am trying to stop, my nails have been painted for the past 2 weeks & that seems to help 🙂 now to just KEEP them polished.

city: charlotte, north carolina.

drink: chamomile tea. i’m in love with it.

education: FINALLY graduating in december with a web design & interactive media degree (& i just realized that’s only like 6 months away 🙂 🙂 )

food: dark chocolate covered banana chips. if you’ve never had them i suggest heading to your nearest earthfare & get some. they’ll change your life. or pancakes & eggs. i love breakfast food.

guilty pleasure: dark chocolate covered banana chips & more than 1 cup of coffee in a day.

hometown: cary, north carolina.

ice cream: i don’t usually eat it because i’m lactose intolerant but when i splurge for the coconut milk ice cream i LOVE LOVE LOVE the chocolate chocolate.

kryptonite: a good hairday.

look-a-like: my grandma always tells me i look like angie harmon? but jess calls me audrina because i wear my hair like her a lot in the messy, side, half up, teased, semi wavy way. make sense?

movie: erin brokovich

nickname: annie, anna, ebond.

obsession: food. i love it. a lot. & running. i wish i had more time to do it.

perfume: all time fav is kenneth cole reaction, it’s timeless. but i like to get fun one’s every once in a while (like when mom asks about christmas or birthday presents) my last alternate favorite was vera wang rock princess.

quirk: i love to research random things. like castles & royals from past centuries among other things.

regret: not using all my time wisely thus far in life.

starbucks: raspberry latte.

thrift find of the year: max & cleo dress for $40…. so far.

university: nc state has my heart still.

vacation: anywhere with warm sun, clear water & some sand.
