Vest Friends

It goes without saying that this year's snow day(s) trumps last year's snow day.
Sure, we all sledded down the huge hill that led to the Dean Smith Center (or Dean Dome, as we call it) in Chapel Hill, but this year... it was like we woke up in a winter wonderland. I have to admit, I could stare at snow falling for hours and hours. It's one of the prettiest things to encounter. Casey and I had our fair share of fun as we threw snowballs at each other and watched the pretty snow fall from our windows. 

Just a couple of vest friends having a good ol' laugh in the snow. Ha.

Snow Faux Sho

Last week, we had a couple of days off due to the snowpocalypse that hit NC.
Classes were cancelled, sleds were out, snowgear on... let's just say, we made the most of our snow day. I wore this look for a snow day brunch with my girls and then we headed outdoors for some sledding (on ice!) and then came in for some hot lattes and movies.

There's nothing like spending a snow day with your favorite people.

Birthday Girl

Every year I incorporate balloons into my birthday shoot. This year, I decided to do something a bit different because I am turning 20. I'm finally stepping out of the 'teen' years, if you know what I mean, and somehow felt like trying something new. I also wanted to pause for a few minutes and take everything in. I want to look back and personally thank each and every person that has helped me get to where I am today. Not just family and friends, but even you readers. Every day, I read all the comments on my posts and it just makes me smile whenever you guys stop by to say hi. It makes my worries and problems seem irrelevant at that very moment, and it's those little things that make me think these very thoughts: 
Donut worry, BE HAPPY.

So thank you. 
For reading. For following. For sticking with me all these years or few days, if you're a new reader.
Simply, thank you.

I've teamed up with TOBI for today's birthday post. Hope you enjoy these photos!

Swoozie's Spring Catalog

Two things: there's TWO birthdays happening this week.
1. It's Swoozie's 14th Birthday, and I've rounded up a few of my favorites from their Spring Catalog that I'm SWOOZING over. (swooning, but for Swoozie's... get it? Ha! Okay, I'm done)
2. My birthday is TOMORROW. #byebyeteenyears

Anyway, there's so many exciting new items in for Spring! I'm looking forward to all the beach totes and adorable koozies for the warm weather. I'm obsessed with the Kate Spade line at Swoozie's and it's not so often you see Kate Spade and 20% OFF in the same sentence... so take advantage of this opportunity! 

EVERYTHING is 20% OFF with code: HAPPY14
P.S. Some of these items are not in stock just yet, but you can pre-order them!

Party straws are a necessity. I carry a couple of packs with me everywhere I go for any impromptu photo-ops or just to add a little touch to my coffee. You never know when you might pop into a coffee shop while you're out & about!

This Kate Spade glitter water bottle definitely makes me want to drink more water. I am loving that glitter silicone sleeve.

I have this stemless wine glass and I absolutely love it! It's perfect for a wine night with the girls.

This cake pillow is SCENTED. How sweet is that?! No pun intended. There's even this cookie one... GAME. CHANGER.
You can also find the entire Swoozie's Spring Catalog here.

What are your favorites??
Thanks for stopping by!
