Rainy Days and a Blog Award!

Yesterday was definitely one of the rainiest days I've seen in a while. I guess I gotta share a little secret with y'all...yesterday, my mom and I drove up in D.C. My Aunt from OH and my big brother from Norfolk were going to come to the area to spend the weekend, so we made it a family affair! However, I decided to catch the megabus from D.C. to Philly and now I'm spending the weekend with my baseball boy! I haven't seen him since we brought him to move-in which was 4 weeks ago!

Anyway, it rained almost the whole way up to D.C., then as we were driving around the city it was muggy, foggy and gray. As I was waiting in line for the bus, it was pouring...thankfully Momma let me borrow her umbrella, but my poor rainbows got SOAKED.

It rained the whole way up to Philly and then all evening as SB and I attempted to go to the mall & dinner. We kind of just faced it and got really soaked. I, of course, only brought flip flops (whoops) so I might be making a pit stop at the shoe store if it keeps up today!

Wish I had had this outfit instead!

Rainy or not, I'm so glad to be up here. Wednesday/Thursday were very stressful days, with a chaotic day at work & four tests - including my eval tour, which I PASSED! I'm an official Ambassador now.
Anyway, I was definitely ready for a little break and to get out of Blacksburg.

I cannot believe this, but I was awarded the iDig Your Blog Award by one of my favorite blogs Turtles and Pearls!!
Thank the person who gave you the award:
Thank you SO MUCH for this award, Turtles and Pearls! It means so much to me that you are following my blog, and I always look forward to new posts on your blog as well! We seem to have a lot in common, especially our love for our college football teams!
Everyone go check out her blog for some fun posts and great fashion advice :)

Share three random facts about yourself:
1. Yesterday, I think I was more excited to see The Disney Store than any other store in the mall.

2. One of the most important things on my bucket list is to visit each state. So far I've been to 18/50! I don't include where I've only been in an airport...after all, I never technically step foot on the ground.

3. If I had three wishes, they would be: that Maple Ridge would let their residents have pets, for a fridge full of Red Bulls and to have naturally curly hair.

I think those were random enough, huh!?

Pass the award onto five others:
2. Ashley @ Everyday Ashley
3. Meggan @ Lila Grace

Go check out their blogs!

Have a great weekend everyone :)
