I don't think I have to explain how excited I am to have Sammi join Flock Together. She's been one of my favorite bloggers for a while now, so having access to part of her gorgeous collection of dresses is a dream come true for me and the other Flock Together girls. Obviously, I'd borrow everything in her closet if I could, but I decide to just limit myself to one piece when she put up some of her items for swapping. I decided to borrow this hot air balloon dress first, and I think it's obvious why. After wearing it twice, these are the thoughts that have run through my head: I never want to take it off, I'm pretty sure that I want to be buried in it, and it's a little unhealthy how emotionally attached I've become to a dress that isn't mine. Too far? Sure, but can you blame me?
Ruining friendships by stealing dresses aside, I had a great weekend, which I'm starting to realize has been a theme these days. I know I said this last time, but I've just been having a really good time with my friends lately. For the first part of college, I always talked about how no one would ever compare to the group of friends I had back home. I missed that stable group of people I could turn to and say "what are we doing on Friday?" knowing that we would be hanging out. I'm fortunate to still be close with my friends from home (a fact proven by my long phone call with my friend Whitney yesterday and my almost daily texts with my friend Adam), but it's unbelievably nice to finally have a similar group here as well. Of course, it would be just my luck that I had to meet them all during the second half of my college career.
So, all in all, things are pretty swell for me right now. Between homemade breakfasts from good guy friends, too many coffee shop visits to count, an impromptu road trip for pizza, hard cider, and Starbucks, being extremely happy with my blog photos/outfits, and still having the best job ever, I'm living the life right now. But don't worry; I'll probably wake up with a nasty cold tomorrow and hate everything.
