halloween love

Only one more day until Halloween. I'm not sure why I am so excited for it this year- perhaps I am just excited for the change that I feel it brings...

There is soooo much to do this weekend. I'm so excited I might expload! (So here is the list, because what else do I ever do but make lists?)
-pick up the rest of my halloween costume. I'm going to be:
-go to the store to pick up food/drinks/etc for tomorrows halloween shindig
-bake cupcakes, cookies, and start on the beans for the chili
-start watching scary movies (tonight is Saw)

Happy Halloween and weekend!!

I feel like every blog I write now starts with something along the lines of "It's been awhile since I last blogged....". I really wish I was getting better at this instead of worse, but lately life has been throwing too much at me to allow the amount of blogging I would like to do.

So here are some updates....

Leigh, Jeff K, and Jess and I got to meet Rob Bell. We went to one of his talks/shows and then stayed after to meet him. It was so surreal and he is such an awesome guy! And a lot taller than I thought he would be......

I am also in love with this band. Owl City.
I am counting down the months and days until they are in Jacksonville!!!!

I am also in love with this band. Passion Pit.

If you like Postal Service, chances are you will love these bands as well.

Any new bands yall have been turned on to recently?? I am constantly wanting new music to craft to!!! :)

Happy Tuesday my bloggin' buds!!!

my middle name is "Go"

Actually, my middle name is Nichole.
My mom jokes with me all the time (and since I was a little girl) that my middle name is or should have been Go. She says that ever since I could walk (or perhaps even crawl) I have been on the move. I don't sit still or stay put for very long. I think I tend to get restless easily.
Today I am remembering this joke she and I share and finding it to be very much true. Lately I feel that I haven't had a lot of time to just sit and think. It's probably a good thing though since just sitting around tends to leave me bored and often times depressed. However, there is so much going on (especially with it being midterm week) that I feel I can't catch my breath. I guess though I should be thankful, for it keeps me happy, thinking about all the good things in life, and more importantly allows me to be thankful for down time even more than I otherwise would be.
Hope yall are having a great Monday (even though for us here on the East Coast there's only a few minutes more of it!)

love, love, love
me <3

good morning lovlies

I have never been a morning person. Even as a little kid I would sleep in Saturday mornings, missing the weekend morning cartoons (much to my parents' dismay). But I have just always enjoyed staying up late and sleeping in the next day.
However, today was different. Today Leigh and I decided that we would venture out to the beach and watch the sun rise. While to those that know us, this either sounds like a blatant lie or may now be worried about our sanities, I assure you that all is well. Better than, actually.
After too long a time in being comfortable with the life I was barely living, I decided that today would be a fresh start for me. I have BIG plans for my future from here on out. I want to live everyday doing what will make my future self proud. This includes continuing the great changes I've been implementing in my life (i.e. drinking LOTS of water, going to the gym, and reading more) as well as making new goals (i.e. looking at things from a new perspective and trying things I would otherwise be scared to try).

So here's to a new chapter in my life.

And for those of you that did not believe the beach sun rise trip, look below. Yup, pictures to prove it!!! :)

We also made our way downtown to the best little bookstore to scope out some new reads. Something about the cool weather and being downtown on a sunny, beautiful day that makes me heart happy.

I hope you are all enjoying your Saturdays.
Much love,

Just a few more weeks and there will be scary movies, homemade chili, Halloween cookies and cupcakes and my sangria punch. Yes, we are going ALL out. I can't wait to start baking.
