tuesday thoughts: {the future}

Hey friends!

So what has been on my mind lately? The future. UGH. Graduation. JOBS. Trying to decide what I want to do with my life.

This is a really anxious time for me because I am such a planner and neeeeed to have everything planned out perfectly, the uncertainty of what I will be doing and where I will be living in May is stressing me out to the max. Can’t I just live in the Kappa house with all of my besties for forEVER??

Stress for Anne = overeating, grumpy mood, not sleeping, no motivation to work out or do anything productive for school, etc. AKA not cute.

Last night two of my best friends and I had a forever long life chat. It made me feel so much better to talk about it and know I am not the only one freaking out. Here are a few thoughts I need to continue reminding myself:

I know God has a perfect plan… I just need to be patient (which is not exactly my strong suit ;).

Have a happy stress-free Tuesday!!

Question: Do you find yourself worrying about your future?



mimm: {randomness galore}

Hi friends!

Hope you guys all had a beautiful weekend. Mine was awesome! It was really, really relaxing and a nice change of pace compared to the craziness of last week. Except for not getting to spend the day with this guy on his birthday.

Is it Monday already?!? What kind of marvelousness have I been up to? As always, thank you Katie for hosting this!

Friday night I went to dinner at Mi Cocina with my godmother Kate and her two cute friends. I had a mambo and guacolmole with chicken fajitas! Mico hits the spot every. single. time.

I should have NEVER posted about my fall favorites on Friday because I am pretty sure that I cursed myself. It got so cold here this weekend. I woke up Saturday morning and was in a wretched mood. I hate to be cold. My plans for a nice long run went out the window almost immediately.

After lounging around for like ever and getting some homework done, I finally convinced myself to go to the gym. The gym. The dreaded place that I hate. Okay, I do not hate it… I even kind of like it once I am there… but the gym at school just reminds me of winter and I really don’t like winter. I LOVE doing interval runs outside here and then just doing some little free weights in my room. But since I would rather die than be cold, it looks like it is time to get back to the gym.

I babysat most of the day on Saturday…. Did I mention that I am the world’s coolest babysitter and the real reason I like to babysit is to play with the family’s dogs? It’s fine and normal.

Then we went to grab drinks for Hillary because she finished the LSAT!! YAY CONGRATS! GO HIL!!!!!!!!

Sunday morning I went to a new workout class with Mary Kathryn and then we had a 2 hour coffee date. The class was at Tread Fitness and I reaaalllyyy loved it. Expect to see more almond milk lattees around here… it was amazing. It was the perfect Sunday morning!

Mal and I went to the Galleria to shop for a bit but I did not get anything becaussseeee… MY MOM is coming TUESDAY night!! WOOHOO!! Can’t wait.

My parents are usually in Dallas quite often but with Rollins in California, since I am supposed to be like some old senior or something that doesn’t get homesick… they have had to split their time 😦 But I can not wait for her to come so we can shop, shop and shop.

I am in major need of a few things…especially for Vegas this weekend!!

What did I say.. VEGAS??!?!? Yes! I am so excited. Well, kind of. I am not sure if Vegas is really my scene (hence all of my really wild weekends ;)) but I think we are going to have a blast. Mostly all of my best friends are going and a ton of other friends from SMU! I know it will be great once I get there.

Well now that you are all caught up on my life.. because I know you guys anxiously sit around and wait for my Monday updates… I am off!!

Have a happy, healthy, yummy Monday!
