I will give it a try...

So I am sure this is a shock to all you Hunger Games fans out there 
butt..... I have not read the book.
With school, work and hanging out with my husband I do not have much time for reading.
I decided with Spring Break around the corner I could probably squeeze in some extra me time for reading and figured that the Hunger Games was the perfect choice.
My Kindle very much is appreciating the love

I am about 30 pages in and I am definitely hooked
I am however disappointed to say that while the easiness of this read is upper elementary, the content is not as much. I have seen many elementary and even early middle grades student reading this and while it could be a starting point for great discussion among families and their children, I highly doubt that is what is happening. 
However I will be finishing the first book over break and possibly starting the second one since we do have 8 hours worth of driving during our trip to and from Charleston.

I'm In I'm In!!!

So it final happened!
I recieved my first acceptance letter to Graduate School 
My precious NC State I will be glad to grace your presence for another year!!!
I am still waiting on a few more letters but NC State and Meredith were my top choices..
If I get in both I will have a tough decision to make!!

They are saved!!!!

My precious Jack Rogers...

I thought I was going to have to retire them when the two piece came out during the first wear of the year.
They are my favorite ones
This beautiful bone color goes with everything
But thanks to the wonderful shoe cobbler
They are as good as new

So if you ever need shoes repaired I would recommend them 100%
They dyed my wedding shoes a very pretty blush pink and they fixed my toe piece and resoled my jacks
I forever owe them :)

Some days you just need to shop....

And today was that day.
Idk what it was but today was an off day for my kids
Some teachers blamed it on the full moon, some on this solar flare thing from the sun
All i know is I didn't like it

So after work I headed straight for the mall
I needed some me time desperately 
Here's what I found :)

Red Cropped Jeans-- Ann Taylor Loft
Perfect NC State attire :)
( They didn't have my size but they are on hold at another store)

Can't Wait to wear these to a wedding in April 

Also I am on the hunt for these new crochet toms
I don't own a pair but I love these
I can't find them anywhere so I guess Ill order them online

Ever have one of those days you just need to hit the mall?

A New Addition

So last week I told you I had a surprise and I do
My family is getting a new addition and I couldn't be more excited

My new sister Ava Gray Hart will brace us with her adorable presence in August!

So our family of 4 is now a family of 5! My parents were really young when they had me ( about 17 ish for my mother) So they are still really young and excited about this new and surprise journey!

I am so excited and my sister and I are throwing my wonderful mother a shower at a surprise location in August!
So for now I will be pinning tons of baby stuff to spoil our new baby sister :)
