the last of may

my burlington trip included: playing with my mom's new kitten, adrian's runs, trips to kenosha with bryce & noelle, and mom's homecooked dinner. i also got to feel my nephew, baby S, kick for the first time; i can't believe i'm going to be an auntie in 6 weeks!

i didn't go to chocolate fest as planned, but it was nice to spend time with my friends & family before returning back to waupaca. in the last few days, i've: devoted my life to hardee's, gotten a few emails from prospective jobs, HIT THE HALFWAY POINT IN MY 365, and spent a very relaxing day off with my love.

may was so good to me. i'm excited to see what june has in store... noelle's baby shower is in a couple weeks, and hopefully my senior season will start kicking into gear. i've been uninspired with ootd's lately, but hopefully i can get back into the swing of things there too!

life lately: may

my go-to breakfast lately

justin & i went to see gatsby the weekend it came out and IT WAS AMAZING.
i want to go see it again and again and again.

justin collects coins so we go through a lot of rejects before he finds his copper pennies & silver nickels/dimes, which means we have to turn all the rejects in every couple of months or so.


cheating on adrian's... but i don't really have a choice. #adriansissues

we spent the day exploring the beach earlier this week.
it was a nice feeling to have sand in between my toes again.

life lately is up a bit early because i'm going home for chocolate fest this weekend and need to clear out my memory cards. this month has been a lot of flowers, golden hour photoshoots, exploring & being silly after work with justin. i'll be back with a chocolate fest post when i get back to waupaca on sunday!

i can't stop listening to lana del rey lately. ever since i saw gatsby on sunday night, hearing her song "young & beautiful" used in the movie has rekindled my love for her.

i love this park so much.

hit the spot

i went on a little adventure of sorts today and found my spot, my special picture taking spot. the river is right there, there are trails to explore and a playground and picnic tables and a pavilion and i'm so excited about it.

it's beautiful outside and today i felt beautiful. all in all, an accomplishment in and of itself.

i guess i was in a very teal mood today...
happy monday everyone!

black and white

{ sweater ~ walmart ; tshirt ~ jcpenney ; jeans & belt ~ kmart ; boots ~ lane bryant }

these are actually my work pants but i thought they'd work for today's ootd.
i can't even remember the last time i wore black jeans before now.
it got chilly again, but at least it hasn't snowed (knock on wood~).
