This week was a pretty laid back one for us.
We had our last day of classes and a few reading days (ie-do no reading of any sorts days)
and it was rainy and overcast for most of it.
It was kind of nice though, although Ben had to work most of the weekend, 
I did minimal studying, curled up with a book, helped some friends move 
and watched two movies from like 10 years ago.

If you follow me on Instagram you have already 
seen most of these, I try to save a few for the blog throughout the week though.

Some outfits this week...I wore a sweater vest. period.
The skirt here was my first thrifted purchase ever from a few weeks ago, under five dollar love.
I also got my hair done (top right) and love it!

1::This was my view when I woke up one morning, I didn't want to get out of bed so bad!
2:: Textbook sell back at 8 am, was a pretty happy crowd, oh ya and my 100 dollar cooking book "sorry new edition next semester" -"Oh wow edition number 10, I wasn't aware the art of cooking could undergo so many freaking changes over the years?!"
3:: My favorite new snack, almonds and you see what I see? That would be biotin and a huge A fish oil pill, get shiny and long hair!
4:: Ben and I couldn't agree on a place to eat on Friday night.  Luckily Rumbi's and J Dawgs are right across the street from one another? Guess who got what?

On Friday, a package came with my name on it (I was actually clothed when the mailman came).
It was Nie Nie's book, Heaven is Here.
I curled up and read it all night and was done by midnight.  I cried the whole way though
 as she said the most honest, touching and inspiring words.
It was not just her amazing story of overcoming her crash and all her burns 
that made me love the book though.  
It was how she loved her children and her husband, it was their family traditions 
and the cute special moments she shared with her husband.  
It was her faith and testimony of the church, accident aside, and how she told of just a
 simple, beautiful, every day family life.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone.

It is now finals week, I am surprisingly not too worried about it....we'll see how long that lasts.
Have a great week friends!

Love the skirt! You are so brave to thrift! I'm always so afraid to do it. Also Nie Nie is my fave. Love your blog!

I have never had luck thrifting. I swear it's a talent. The only thing I've ever gotten was a $5 black leather purse. I should brush up on my skills!
