Thirty Before Thirty

I was inspired by Nykki’s Thirty For Thirty post to write one myself. I have always been a huge fan of to-do lists, grocery lists, packing lists – any types of lists you can imagine. And I’m sure I’ve had at least 10 different bucket lists while growing up. But I don’t remember what they were and I never saved them to my computer, so now it’s time to start over. This time I’m not aiming for lifetime goals, but things that I want to achieve in the next 5 and a half years, whether they are important or silly, or simply important to me. Lists are motivating, and I could definitely use a bit of motivation every now and then.

4 down, 26 to go! I wonder how this list will look in about a year or so.

I would also love it if your guys did a similar post on your own blogs. Maybe we have something in common? If you do I would love share your link at the bottom of this post.

Just let me know!

Blogging Updates

Wow, how is it March already?? I feel like this year has hardly even started and it’s almost spring already! Oh well, I’m going to treat this as sort of a new start since January and February didn’t work out so great. I feel like I was sick half of the time, and the rest of the time I was lacking motivation. Which you can probably tell from the fact that I’ve only posted three outfits last months (Valentines, Boyfriend Jeans, and a Casual Outfit). So, there’s no outfit summary post this month; only a promise that March will be much better!

To make up for it here’s an old outfit that I hope to be wearing again soon. In Florida!

However, right now I’m very excited – I think 2013 will be a great year for my blog! I’ve met so many great bloggers lately, which has really increased my motivation to come up with fun new posts. I’ve also realized that my “blogging vocabulary” could really use some work; and I’m finally getting the hang of using Twitter (I never actually thought I would start to like it). There’s a lot more to the social aspect of blogging than just writing posts, and I’m finally starting to appreciate it! Who would have thought that there’s a whole community of us out there?

Through Luchessa and her beauty posts I’ve found a lot of new favorite blogs, including Nykki. Nykki has already put my name up on her blog, and at the end of April my banner will be shown under all her posts for a full month! She has such a fun blog, and her personality shines through in every post. And these are just two of the wonderful new ladies I hope to get to know better. You should definitely take a second to check them out.

Oh, btw! While we’re talking about my blog. My next giveaway will be at 400 followers. I know it’s still a little ways off, but the last hundred went so fast that I want to be prepared. Do you have any ideas for great giveaway prizes? What would you like to find in your mail box?

Spring Break in Key West

It’s finally official, we’re going on a road trip to Key West in a little under a month! For ten full days. We’ve even booked two of our hotels, so there’s no going back now. (Well, there is free cancellation, but that really wasn’t the point.) On our first day we’ll be driving from Athens to Melbourne, where we can spend a night at my uncle or grandmother’s place – for free, yay. Then we’ll continue down the coast and spend a couple days in Miami before we stop by the Everglades. After that we’re going straight for the Keys! Ah, it’s going to be amazing. I’m already looking up places to see and shop at, and diners to eat at. I love the planning process almost as much as the trip itself. And I’ll be bringing my camera, so you’re all with me every step of the way!

This is from our last spring break in Melbourne. Ah, I just can’t wait to be on the beach again!

I’ve been looking at pictures from Key West, and Florida in general, ever since we booked our rooms. Just look at these pictures and tell me you’re not jealous! I definitely won’t believe you.
