Being A Prep For A Week: 3/6/16 -- 3/12/16

Where in the world has this blogger been?  Not out of the country on some spring break trip, I'm afraid, but I've been somewhere nonetheless.
Last week was insanely busy because I was participating in the Alabama Vocal Association's Allstate Chorus Festival from Thursday until Saturday.  If you aren't familiar with Allstate, it's a huge gathering of choral students from every corner of the state.  The students are required to audition for one of the Allstate choirs prior to the festival, and if they make it, they travel to the festival to rehearse several pieces with their designated clinician;  after two days of arduous rehearsals (think standing up for two hours straight and then continuing on for another three), the choirs showcase their pieces at an enormous concert.  It's a wonderful experience altogether, and I look forward to it every year--but it isn't the best environment for blogging.  Never fear, things have slowed down this week and spring break is approaching, so this blogger should be getting back into her groove!
Prep For A Day

Now, on to some of my favorite links from the past week:
Feeling blue?  Checking out the College Prepster's new puppy will brighten your mood!
I recently stumbled upon VSCO's explore feature--talk about photo inspiration!
Have you checked out Old Navy's new arrivals lately?  I have a penchant for these new peplums...
Allison Pataki (historical fiction extraordinaire) just released her newest novel, and I can't wait to read it!
I've been intrigued by ballet recently, and this version of Sleeping Beauty is spellbinding!

Honestly, the greatest highlight of my week has been realizing that I could wear open-toed shoes;  after all, "some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat."

How was your week?

Love,
