A day of nothing

I’d like to mark this one down in the books to be one of the most unproductive days of my life. It’s one of those days where P is gone and won’t be back until tomorrow, so I’m not going to worry about showering, or getting up off the couch. I’ve watched a ridiculous amount of prison break episodes..I. CAN’T. STOP.. seriously thought, Wentworth Miller..maybe that’s why I can’t seem to press that dirty little pause button. If you are unaware of who he is, I suggest you click your little Google search bar and type that gorgeous mans name in! I triple-dog-dare ya’!

So this post is extremely pointless, and on a side note it is about 45 degrees out, and it is July 27th..beat that. I bet you all wanna move to Michigan now dontcha’ 😉


well, I’m off to watch another episode..





p.s. Not sure if switching from Blogger was that great of an idea.. :/


Morning Thoughts..

This morning as I sat outside on my deck drinking coffee and collecting my thoughts I thought of how lucky I really am. I am able to do whatever it is in this world that I want to do, whenever I want to do it. I am able to talk, walk, ride a bike, sit outside and not feel scared. Today is a day where I am so thankful for the rights we have as American citizens. I am thankful for this little town of 2,000 people that I live in, and knowing that when I go out people are genuinely nice. When I was younger I used to hate this small town, and thought there was nothing here..but as I’ve grown, I’ve started to realize that I don’t ever want to move far away. This town is amazing and we take for granted being surrounded by the fresh Great Lakes. Not many people can walk from their house 10 minutes to fresh, clean water.

^^ view from across the bay, the castle-like building is my highschool 🙂
I think it’s pretty great here!
Comment and let me know what beautiful places you live in 🙂

(just a little snippet of whats been going on in my head)

This week is going to be extremely busy, so my mom and I have been setting up our house a little so we aren’t behind at all. She made the cutest bunting banner with my name on it, but i’m not going to show you quite yet 😉 you’ll have to wait until next week to see! Instead of doing the whole usual picture boards, I hung up my pictures with teeny clothespins, and let me tell you..they are sooo freeeekking cute! I serioulsly could hang up everything in my house with them!

Anyway…graduation is Thursday, and then we have our “Lock-In” Thursday night..
I’m so excited to start this next chapter of my life…but there will be lots of teary eyes to follow….

Senior "stuff"

Lately I’ve been doing a lot of things for the end of the year, graduation, etc! It’s been super crazy busy..! I went to traverse city for a HOSA competition and I have a few pictures from the week there!

I also had a National Honors Society ceremony for the new members, I had to speak, and let me tell you.. Talk about some major red face action on this girlllll :/ one day ill get over that fear..

Other than all of that I’ve been super stressed.. I feel like I can’t go a night without thinking how horrible it is going to be when Parker leaves this summer..I’m like a little baby when it comes to him leaving me! Also graduation and thinking of how soon I will be on my own in this cruel world.. Kind of frightens me! But I’ll make it 🙂

While I was out…

I feel absolutely horrible it’s been two months since I wrote! But seriously, I really do! I feel like this summer I will make it a priority to write. I think writing will help ease the time while P is away. Since I haven’t wrote I have a lot tell..!

I went to Lansing for Youth in Government and it was awesome!
I could say I went on a luxurious vacation for spring break…but unfortunately it was far from that..:(
I sat home all spring break with Parker, but that’s always nice!
P joined the National Guard, and he leaves for basic the end of may ;'(((( << literally me..
I’ve been so busy with scholarships, end of the year crap for graduation, gah. So ready to be done!
Oh yeah I have 26 days left..nbd 😉
I toured the nursing buildings at NMU and it was so awesome, mannequins that can give birth, sayyyy whaaaaatt?! Yeah, it was totally awesome!
Have I said I can’t wait to graduate!?
The NCAA Basketball game tonight…! GO BLUEEE!
Well I’ll be heading downstate Wednesday! So have a good week everyone 🙂

Also I’ll be writing a more formal post sooooon! So keep your eyes open 😉 I’m gonna need some help from all you lovelies 🙂


There should be a day between Saturday and Sunday.

This weekend went by way too fast! I hate Sundays, because that means Parker has to go back to Marquette and leave me 😦 I get lonely during the week.. I cannot wait to graduate! We had a really fun weekend though, Friday I went to get my hair done with my mom and Saturday Parker and I hung out just the two of us for once, and then went ice fishing! It was soooo cold, and I normally hate going outside, but I figured I’d be a nice girlfriend so I went and it was okay.. 😉 at least I was with him. Then we took a hot tub at my aunties to finish the night off! 🙂
Today, Sunday.. I waited for P to get done fishing with his dad, and then we went snowshoeing with some friends! It was fun.. And there were a lot of laughs from falling!
I definitely got my fair share of fresh air, and I hate to admit it but it was nice 🙂 maybe the cold isn’t thaaaat bad.. 😉 I’m hoping for no school tomorrow! Roads are naaasttyyyy..eeek! 🙂
Night loves!

Ps! I made my first vine, check it out! Also follow me on Instagram to see more 🙂
