Check out my post over at Love Twenty about things you should be thankful for in your early twenties. It was fun to write!



This weekend was ACL Festival in Austin. ACL weekend is a weekend everyone looks forward to every year; great music, great people, great atmosphere. This year's lineup was awesome, per usual. Aviici, Bassnectar, The Avett Brothers, The Lumineers, Jack White, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Childish Gambino, The Black Keys, Florence and the Machine, The Shins, Weezer, and SO many more!

This year was the first year I got to go and it certainly won't be the last. Plus, it was fun catching up with my childhood best friends. I hadn't seen those girls in forever! I could have for sure done without the mud, but oh well.

The Civil Wars

Two Door Cinema Club

The Lumineers (it was beyond crowded though! so sad!)

Our original seats for RHCP. We had to move because we couldn't breathe :)

Liebster Award

I feel so honored! Jo Lane over at Loving Life In The Fab Lane nominated me for the Liebster Award, which is for new bloggers who have less than 200 followers. How exciting!

The idea is that people win the award and pass it on to other Bloggers who are in the same boat. My research tells me that the rules are:
  • Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
  • They must also answer the 11 questions the tagger has set for them.
  • They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
  • They must then choose 11 bloggers to tag with less than 200 followers.
  • These lucky bloggers must be told.
  • There are no tag backs.

Without further ado...

Weekend Roundup

This weekend has been a little nuts. I've received a flood of news and I'm a little overwhelmed.

One thing I'm not allowed talk about just yet. Everyone knows how terrible I am at keeping secrets so this is really hard :( But trust me, it's goooooood! I am so excited about it!

Another exciting thing is that Mom and Steve officially found a piece of land to build on in TENNESSEE! This has been a bit of a grueling journey for us. They knew they wanted to retire to a place closer to family, so they initially started looking in Northern Alabama. Then South Carolina. Then East Tennessee. Thennnnn outside of Nashville, and now they finally call my mom's hometown home again. It's bizarre that they wound up there, but you know what they say.. home is where the heart is. They've searched high and low for the perfect piece of land to build a house on and I am so happy they finally found it. I think everyone is pretty excited they won't be 900 miles from them.

Which will be fun for me if I wind up getting a job in Austin after graduation. Not. But I really am truly happy for them. This is going to be such an exciting new phase of their lives.

On to a less happy note, my grandma had a stroke this weekend. Fortunately, she is doing much better and there doesn't appear to be any nerve damage. It scared me to death. My grandma is my heart and it hurts so bad to think of something happening to her. Please keep her in your prayers.

It's just been a weird weekend for my emotions. Lots of ups and downs and in betweens. I'm excited to see what this week has in store...
