Life Update

It's been a whirlwind week since I've been home from school. In reality I haven't done much, but in principle I have had so much on my plate and my stress level hasn't seemed to go down at all! Let me fill you all in. It's been a while since I've posted... sorry for the unexpected break!

I had originally planned to spend the two weeks leading up to Memorial Day after finals in Long Island and the Hamptons with my family, but plans fell through and I ended up booking a last-minute second flight home just about a week before finals. I flew home about a week ago (Monday the 15th) and decided to use the opportunity to surprise Jack for his birthday the next day, Tuesday the 16th. Because of the surprise, I was super vague on social media and the blog. Sorry about that!

All day Tuesday I was so excited about surprising Jack that I couldn't even do anything. I didn't want to leave my house because I was so paranoid that someone would see me somewhere and just somehow I would ruin the surprise (overdramatic, I know). But...
I ended up surprising Jack when he went to get ice cream that night with Caroline, and I am so proud to say he was completely shocked! He had no idea what was coming and it was really funny to see his reaction.

On Wednesday Jack and I spent the day together going on a hike and just hanging out because we hadn't seen each other since he came to visit in March. I also hung out with Caroline again on Wednesday night because we have this tradition every summer to spend as much time as possible watching E! and hanging out on her pink couches blogging. It's seriously the best and absolutely, without a doubt, my favorite way to spend summer nights. I know it sounds lame, but it's the ~little things~ in the summertime; am I right?!

Thursday I hung out with my other best friend, coincidentally named Caroline too (we went to Miami together for spring break), and Friday I had cocktails with my mom and some of her friends and then hung out with my other best friend, Elizabeth, when she got home from school Friday night. It's so crazy how all of my best friends and favorite "home" people are finally in the same place for the next three months!

A big part of heading back from Lehigh has, of course, been unpacking from school. I Snapchatted/Instagram storied a bit of my moving out process, and I shared some more details here. In short, I had eight giant boxes delivered to my house that arrived on Thursday. I have actually finished unpacking everything, and I have slowly but surely been adding things to my Poshmark that I am cleaning out of my closet. (Shop them here!! & make any offers... I just want them to find a home!)

Yesterday I spent a little time working on an internship application for a position that I would be so excited about. But, if it doesn't work out, I am still planning to do retail and that job starts at the end of the month! Until the official start of that, it's all up in the air depending on if the internship works out. Today was church and brunch with my mom and now a relaxing afternoon!

What's new with you?! I'm just happy to be out of school and home for summer, even if it's been 40 degrees and rainy! Happy weekend!
