smile list: part one

Sometimes when things get so busy, and so stressful, and just a little bit overwhelming, all that you want to do is look at pretty pictures and focus on the things that make you smile.

I’ve been a little bit stressed out lately…which is why I felt the need to make this list! And also why I’m so sorry that I haven’t been very good at stopping by your blogs or writing you back in the last week. I’m slowly making up for lost time!


A balloon ride to Paris…just like the movie Up but to an even more romantic location. I want to go!


I’m going to have dreams about this dress. It’s like a fairy princess.


This might be my favorite color in the world. So pretty!


I might adopt this piggy as Riley’s new companion.


Watercolors and antique books. Love.

busy busy busy!

Things have been just a little bit busy around here to say the least! I am down to the last six days of my MBA EVER!

For now, I wanted to leave you with my favorite song from Luke Bryan’s new album, which actually came out today! For those of you country lovers, I’m SURE you know who Luke Bryan is. Only the cutest, funniest, most perfect of all the country singers. And for those of you that aren’t so sold on country? You will love this.

Up until my junior year of high school, I had never listened to a country song in my life. After going to a Kenny Chesney concert with my parents, I was instantly hooked. It IS possible to love Britney Spears, Katy Perry, and even 50 Cent while still loving country music. You just have to give it a try! : )

a justin bieber birthday

Thank you all so much for your sweet birthday wishes yesterday! I’m sure my 21st birthday was just a little bit tamer than most!

A big pancake breakfast with my family. Relaxing outside in the warm weather while reading Bethenny Frankel’s A Place of Yes. My eighth to last MBA class ever. A Justin Bieber-themed birthday, clad with these amazing party decorations:

And the highlight?

The THREE-HOUR finale of The Bachelorette! And she picked my guy! Yay!!!

Sounds pretty wild, huh?

Because I don’t drink – and have never had a sip of alcohol in my life (never will!) – this birthday wasn’t as big of a deal to me as it might be to most. I’m a little bit of a goody two shoes, and I have no plans to change! I’ve actually never even been to a traditional party. My version of a party is a group of girls getting manis/pedis and watching The Notebook with a few pounds of See’s candies.

My only experience in a bar atmosphere was in Hong Kong over my study abroad class this January…and my experience was so scarring that I ended up taking a taxi back to the hotel almost immediately (with two fellow MBAs in the back seat, extremely drunk, and all over each other) as I attempted to direct the Chinese taxi driver to our hotel. He couldn’t speak a word of English. I made it back to the hotel, put on my sweats, and had a blast dancing around the room to Britney Spears by myself. That’s me for you!

This birthday was no different – with my Britney Spears music, Justin Bieber birthday plates, and a big slab of cheesecake, it was the perfect 21st birthday and reflects exactly who I am.

Thank you all SO much for the birthday wishes!

XO Star
