I’m currently on a plane flying to Florida to celebrate Alexis’ bachelorette weekend! We’ve been close since college and I’m thrilled to be part of this celebratory girls weekend in Ft. Lauderdale.
flashback to our girls weekend in Charleston
I will admit, I’m not a big fan of flying. Actually, I’m not a big fan of leaving my family. What can I say, I’m a little attached- wink. I have to be super intentional with myself in not letting fear dictate my decisions, so even though it’s unsettling for me to board a plane, I know I’ll have a wonderful time with my girlfriends once I’m there.
Balayage. I tried it, and thought I loved it at first, but after a couple weeks I embraced the fact that balayage just makes me look like I have bad roots. I think it looks so good on others, but alas, I can’t pull it off. So on Wednesday I went back in and had my girl Bekah add a few old fashion highlights and now I’m back to liking my hair!
PS- Mom, I apologize for laughing at those pictures of you from the 80’s with your big “bug eye” sunglasses. Apparently fashion does indeed repeat itself.
Brene Brown. I am fairly new to her work, but I downloaded The Power of Vulnerability on Audible and now I can’t shut up about it. Her insight into vulnerability, authenticity, shame, living a full life, connecting with people on a real level, etc, etc is incredible. Many of her phrases remind me of things my dad has taught me over the years and to hear it echoed in such applicable bits has just been incredibly additive to my life outlook lately.
Some links worth sharing:
Thank you all who entered the Rubbermaid Balance Meal Kit giveaway! Your lunch ideas in the comments have ensured I don’t hit a lunch rut for a long, long time. Random.org selected comment #19, so Julie “We love guacamole with wheat pita bread, turkey slices, and cucumbers!” keep an eye out for an email from me!
I hope you all have a great weekend!
How often do you get to see your college friends?
For me, it really is only about 1-2 times per year but my goodness, we pack a lot of fun into those times!
