Instagram Link Party {3}

Happy Labor Day everyone! I hope your day is beautiful & relaxing. I am spending the day with Nick {of cours}, not sure yet what were doing but def. making sure there isn't any stress involved. Last week was slightly stressful for me & I am hoping that this week is a little better. But to start Monday off right, I am linking up some instagram photos with Ashley from a little {dash} of ash. She has been doing a weekly instagram link party where we all share our own photos or photos that we have seen & liked on instagram. This week my instagram photos are a little random, some are mine personally & others are ones that I liked along the way. Enjoy. xxoo

fill in the blank friday //

it's friday & i am doing the usual fill in the blank friday with the little things we do. i have missed a few weeks, but am super excited to be in the friday link-up! :] i hope everyone has had a great week. mine has been good , as well as a little rough around the edges. i hope that next week looks up for me, which i am thinking it does. i am heading to DC saturday morning to spend the weekend with nicholas since i have Monday off for Labor Day & tuesday's early morning class was canceled. so why not enjoy it with him :] what does everyone have planned for the holiday weekend? anything fun?

1.   One thing that is completely superfluous, but that I could never give up is   my smartphone. i seriously don't think i could live without. that's really bad, isn't it? well yeah i think it is too. but i have tried to live without it & it is very unsuccessful. 


2.    Running into someone in public that I went to high school or college with & were friends, but they don't make eye contact with me makes me feel awkward.

3.  I can't    imagine life    without,   Christ  .

4.    Guacamole  is my favorite snack.

5.  Lately I've been    extremely tired & trying to get over a cold. it is absolutely no fun to have a cold during summer. blah.

6.  If at first you don't succeed   try harder because you are capable of great things, even if you don't think you.

7.  Fall is   the best season EVER!!!! i love everything about it from watching football, scarves, hot apple cider, leaves changing color, big blankets, ugg boots, sweaters, snuggling -- well you see the list could go on & on & on!!!
