A Dose of Optimism


Today is my last day of school! I still have four finals so I won't technically be done until May 16th, but still, it's pretty nice to not have to wake my lazy bum up to go to classes! Until August, that is...
At the end of the month, Trae and I will be going to Washington D.C. to help work for my mom! This is the first time him and I will be traveling together to somewhere outside of Texas! So we're pretty stoked. I haven't been to D.C. since I was nine years old! I can't wait to check out the museums and visit good ol' Abe again. With all this talk of terrorists possibly attacking the U.S. for revenge, I hope nothing bad or crazy goes on while we're there! Yikes.

I'm going home to San Antonio tonight for Mother's Day weekend. I've packed the majority of my stuff from my room, so right now my room looks bleak and depressing without all of my pictures and decor on the walls. My parents are in the process of moving into a new house (to an even farther location, ugh), and I still haven't seen it so I'm gonna check it out tomorrow. From the pictures my mom sent me, it looks pretty sweet. I just hate driving so far! Bleh.

I finally get to see my new camera tonight when I see Trae, eeeep! This means my outfit posts can finally get started! Be excited. ;)

And be glad tomorrow is Friday! Whoop!



  1. Such a great quote.

  5. You're so lucky! I just got back from D.C. and I was only there for a couple hours...not including sleeping. I want to go back its such a lovely city.

  6. i LOVE this and just what i needed to read tonight! thanks for sharing lades, you know one of my fave quotes is "comparison is the thief of joy" and this really reflects that sentiment. spot on shares, most appreciated.

    i wish you all the best for those upcoming finals and also many relaxing sleep-ins to savor!!! you're so lucky to be going to D.C., i've always wanted to visit that city. i think i'd secretly be wanting to run into Naomi from Rockstar Diaries (do you read her blog?, it's unreal! i love it)

    happy weekend and new house toasting...along with mom's day. ♥
