the week in photos.

when you’re in the air conditioning, packing for a weekend of college football & drinking pumpkin beer ..your brain screams “FALL!!!“. then you open the door and 100° temps slap that crazy idea right out of your mind. oh well. nothing can bring me down – football is here!!  and fall will come soon enough.

[J] & I are headed to our college town of iowa city, IA to join in on the festivities.

it has been so long since I’ve been back. I’m excited to spend the weekend wandering our old stomping grounds. and cheering on the football team, of course.

[we’re also going to dinner tonight at the spot of our very first date. almost 6 years later].

before I leave town, let’s do ..

and I couldn’t leave without my standard iced coffee + breakfast burrito, which I got in “bowl” form. to switch it up a bit.

and this is what happens when your fiance’s golden birthday rolls around & you get the bright idea to DIY. thankfully the majority of the glitter is either so deep into our carpet we’ll never see it again or sucked up by the vaccum. but those gold confetti stars are haunting me, wherever I go.

and with that .. it’s time to get this weekend started!

if you don’t already, follow me on {instagram} + {twitter}. I’m sure to be an unpredictable, pretending to be twenty-one again, ball of fun. maybe!

one more thing.

in “honor” of my birthday, I’m offering ..

living the glory days.

actually I think my glory days are still ahead of me. 

besides the point …

it seems as though everyone is in “back to school” mode. so I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon ..

if I was headed back to college, this is exactly what I’d rock as my first day look.

the truth is I’m FIVE DAYS from turning TWENTY-SIX. so in other words, very far from “back to school days“. but you’ll still find me rockin’ this tote. I’ll trade in the text books for a camera + wedding planning essentials. it just makes the perfect day bag.

happy thursday.

[the weekend is so close].
