I realized I haven't done a "catch up on life" post recently and, although nothing major has happened, I still want to document some fun things!

Recently...I finished my first cross stitch that I gave to my mom for her birthday:
 Not the best picture, but after I was finished with it I ironed it and framed it.  I also added the quote and heart on my own to make it more unique. I think I did pretty good for my first one ever!  Definitely some mistakes, but thankfully no one but me can tell where they are :)

Recently...I rang in the New Year on one of the best NYE I've ever had!

I wish this picture wasn't blurry :(
I honestly couldn't have asked for better people to spend it with -- although I was sad my roommate Lindsay wasn't able to come back for the night!
Recently...the weather (last weekend) has been gorgeous!
 I got to pleasantly run outside down in the valley.
Then I went for a run at Pandapas Pond!

Recently...Steven got me a new Vera Bradley wallet for an early Valentine's gift/happy spring semester of senior year gift :)
I love VB wallets.  In the past I've used their basic Euro Wallet, the All-in-One Wristlet {as a wallet}, the Clutch wallet and I've been happy with all of them. However, I hadn't found the perfect style quite yet -- either they were too small, didn't have enough card slots, the change pocket was too tiny or they just didn't work well with carrying them around campus.
This is the Turn Lock Wallet in Plum Petals - one of my favorite prints. I wanted this style because it's easier to access your IDs than it is in the clutch wallet (what I've been using up until now) and there's plenty of card slots!
So far I love it and I love that Steven remembered the style that I wanted! He picked out the print on his own though :) (Although, I did tell him some of the prints that I do not like...)

Recently...my brother built me a nail polish stand for Christmas!
Wouldn't ya know...it's already filled. I actually even had to eliminate some! I guess I'll have to ask for another one to match for Easter or something... :)

Like I said, not too much going on, but still I've been keeping busy!
This is my last week before classes start and I'm working every day & going in to kindergarten on MWF.
I'm starting to organize my room, car and purse TODAY! Wish me luck and send any tips :)

  4. SARAH! I love the precious cross stitch you made for your mom...homemade presents really are the best kind! And you and Steven are ADORABLE! I love all the NYE pictures! Will you be in Fairfax anytime soon? Let me know if you are...we can have a "BLATE" :) and document it on our blogs!
