we had a great turnout for this as well!
and last night after refuel we had a small scavenger hunt across campus!
We split up into groups based on our birthday months
Well guess which team won?
That's right the team I was on won! HOLLA HONEY BOO BOO
We walked/ran all over campus and then ran about halfway back to the SOC house and ya girl was about to pass out (there were definitely some walking breaks in there)
After the scavenger hunt we walked over to Tech's first football game of the season!!
I was not going to miss going to the first game!
Tech won and they shot off fireworks after the game!
Such a fun night and a GREAT start to the semester!!
I don't know about y'all but I am more than ready for this three day weekend!
I plan on doing a whole bunch of nothing and catching up on my sleep, my shows I have missed and working on some crafts for my room and apartment!
I hope you all have a fun/safe weekends and that you get to spend it with the ones who mean most to you!!

We were hoping we wouldn't scare our neighbors with this thing hanging up, ha!
It actually wasn't too hard hammering those little nail things in y'all!
The hard part:
Hanging it up since we both can't go up the ladder it was a little difficult to hang up so I just let him handle that part... :)
This really is very simple and cheap!
I spent $17 (for the king size sheet. my dad already had everything else) on this screen and that definitely beats buying a screen for $300!
Here are just a few pictures from that night, seriously I had a blast planning for this and setting everything up and he was so surprised!!
With fall coming up we'll be having those cool crisp nights that would be
P E R F E C T
for this so go have a drive in at your house in your own backyard!!

I was pretty excited about getting the class and when I walked out I realized the building was called Matthews Daniel so I snapped this and sent it to ole Matthew to tell him I got in the class.

Good morning love muffins!
Today one of my friends from high school and her older sister are going to share with you their different views on fashion as they are in different stages in life. I was so excited when I saw familiar faces in the blogging world and I am so excited for you to get to know them!
Here they are :)
Hello Stay Crafty My Friends! Liz and I are the authors to Hawthorn Place. We are new to the blogging world and were so excited when Shelby graciously invited us to guest blog. Since we are in different stages of life, we wanted to share our styles based on our roles as a student and a professional.
I am a senior in college and love the comfy but cute student style. I chose this combination beginning with the denim top. The great thing about denim tops is that some of the best ones can be found at thrift shops! From there, I immediately paired some black leggings that can also be found real cheap, like these H&M ones above! I am a huge sweater fan, so I chose a longer bulky one for the fall. The cheetah flats are my favorite part of this combination. They are from target, which is one of the best places for cheap and cute anything! Cheetah also seems to be making a statement, especially in J. Crew’s latest catalog! The wristlet is an essential for any college student! To top this outfit off, I added the monogram necklace. I love anything and everything monogrammed! Small, but gives the outfit a pop!
I work in the corporate marketing world so part of my job is looking presentable. One thing that is important to me is that I look professional but still youthful. I love the peter pan collar on this J Crew Factory top. Pair it with some yellow heels and a burgundy purse and you will look great this fall! I like to keep jewelry simple at the office, so most of the time I just wear cute studs, a watch, and a few bangles. Happy shopping!

H A P P Y M O N D A Y
Today my little sister, Samantha, turns 10 years old.
I can't believe she is 10 y'all!! I remember the day she was born.
My parents let me help pick out her name and around the time she was born I had just gotten my first American Girl doll, Samantha. Do y'all remember those? I was obsessed and had every book.
I loved that name so much I mentioned it to my parents and they immediately fell in love with it too.
So that's how ole Sammy Jo got her name!
(glasses, braces, awful hair part....no shame)
Sammy Jo, I hope you have a great birthday!! I am so proud of the sweet young lil lady you are becoming!
Did y'all watch the VMA's last night? Well if you are following me on Twitter or Instagram sorry about that last night, ha! I guess you could say I love NSYNC a little...
I relived my childhood for about 50 seconds last night...I was pretty disappointed with them only performing for a short time but hopefully this is just a preview of what's to come for them!!
I still have their CD's, lunchbox and posters somewhere up in our attic.
& Miley Cyrus...
y'all she needs Jesus.
