October/November Favorites

Long time, not a ton of writing. The past two months have been absolutely crazy busy, and so much has happened. However, this blog has fallen on the wayside. I wish I could say it was because I was so overwhelmed with ideas, and I wasn't sure how to complete them. I did have ideas, but I didn't have any motivation to sit down and write. College takes a lot out of you, and when I do have energy, I am usually doing something else like going to football games or hanging out with my friends. 

I am also trying to figure out what direction I want to everything - my life, the blog - to go in. I love writing, but I am not sure what I want to be writing about. However, I have a new project that I have started, and I am so excited to share it with y'all in the upcoming weeks. It's not quite where I want it to be, but I am going to spend a lot of time on it over winter break. 

So here we are at the end of November. The only way to really get back to blogging to me is show y'all what I have been up to for the past month and a half and what I have been loving. The last thing y'all saw was the recap of the Texas A&M, and a lot has happened since then. I am going to go ahead and apologize for all the pictures and long post. 

At the end of the month, we had our fall break. I didn't go home because I had gone home a couple weeks earlier, so I stayed with Emma in Auburn. We spent a day at Callaway Gardens, which strangely I had never been to. It was cool to do something in Georgia that I had never done before, and it was a nice way to be around nature and away from school. 

Cat, Emma, and I watched the LSU game together at the Theta house/our student center. Y'all, that game probably took a couple years off my life, but the end result was worth it. We are going to the SEC Championship after all. 

Theta had our semi-formal date party on election night, and boy was that a time. It was fun. I went with Mickey, who I take to everything basically, and Emma took our friend Evan. We didn't stay too long because it was on a Tuesday night, but we went to Waffle House afterwards in traditional fashion. It was definitely a nice way to distract myself from what was actually happening.

I got to go home! I went home for Thanksgiving, obviously, but I wasn't home for too long. I went home Tuesday night and went back to school on Friday morning/afternoon. While I only spent two full days at home, I loved every single second of it. Fall in my hometown is so amazing, and I loved being able to walk my sister's dog on the golfcart paths. 


And one last home football game!! I can't believe the regular season is over. I had to spend my last game with the two people I have basically spent every other gameday weekend with - Emma and Mickey. The Iron Bowl atmosphere was probably the best of the season with Texas A&M as a close second. I am really sad the season is over, but I couldn't have asked for a better to season for my freshman year. 

Since I did a pretty long recap of the past two months, I will keep my favorite "things" super short.

Brooke's "I'm in a Frat" playlist has been keeping me going the past couple of weeks. I will play this all the time in my dorm with my roommates when we've had a rough day. 

My favorite movie has been "When Harry Met Sally," which is on Hulu right now. I've known I loved this movie forever, but I just watched it again for the first time in a while. A perfect movie.

For makeup, I have worn either Monte Carlo from NYX or Partner in Crimson from Maybelline when I have worn lipstick to games.

To end this post, everyone needs to watch this Wes Anderson x H&M commercial. It's perfect.
