so close...

spring break is in one week
and i can hardly wait.
this week i have so many tests and projects due
so i am in desperate need of a vacation

i am going to charleston with my dear stephanie
and we are going to go to the flea market
and the beach
and take SO many pictures

the only down side to this wonderful spring break?
i will miss bennett SO much
i don't even want to think about it...

things i love right now:
- the ballad of love and hate by the avett brothers
- my new anthropologie dress
- white wine
- being engaged
- the fact that spring break is in 9 days
- black and white photography

i was tagged by stephanie to do the following:

1) open your 1st photo folder
2) scroll to the 10th photo
3) post the photo and the story behind it
4) tag 5 or more people

so here it is:
i took this polaroid at the end of my freshman year of college. bennett is on the left and my roommate meagan is on the right. a bunch us had gone to my house that morning to eat pancakes that my mom made and then we went to the park afterwards to hang out. i had the biggest crush on bennett at this point. the best part is that he asked me out on our first date that night. he asked me as we were walking on campus, on our way to watch star wars. i was so excited that i couldn't stop smiling the whole night. that was almost 2 years ago, and look at us now! we're getting married!

now i tag:
1) ashley from have heart
2) evelyn from a star of love
3) johanna from whirly bird
4) camilla from champagne bubbles
5) cali from passion bird

bennett stopped by the art building today
to give me a hug and a kiss
right before his 2 o'clock class
and we were standing in the lobby
and i started freaking out
because i remembered how much i love him
and that he is going to be my husband
and i just got so excited.

i like it when that happens.
when i freak out and remember how huge our love is.

snow, snow, go away

i woke up this morning to find it snowing again
which made it very difficult to drag myself out of bed
and now i'm regretting my decision to wake up
because hardly anyone is in my classes
so we're not even really doing anything productive
and i could still be warm in my bed
if i had just followed my first instinct to stay in

i am tired of living in a snow globe
...hurry up spring!

valentine's day

we celebrated valentine's day last night
thinking we would be clever by doing it the night before
but we were soooo wrong
because cheesecake factory had a 3 hour wait
and the movie we wanted to see was sold out

so instead we dressed up
and went to one of our favorite pizza places
for pizza and drinks
and then we rented new york, i love you
and ate chocolate covered clementines
and drank wine
and it was perfect.

next year we're staying in and ordering a pizza for valentine's day...

a boring post

this weekend consisted of

- an upper respiratory infection
- the most snow i've seen since the 8th grade
- the first season of dexter
- so much snuggling
- penne noodles covered in butter
- lots of coughing and nose blowing

oh how i hate the cold and being sick
but oh how i love laying in bed watching dexter with my fiance
