BEING A PREP FOR A WEEK: 11/6/16 -- 11/12/16

November 12, 2016

What a week.  Especially if you reside in America, you can agree with me on that one.

On a smaller scale, my part of the world was extremely busy.  On Monday I had a nerve wracking audition for Alabama's Allstate SATB choir (something I've been involved with for the past four years) which, surprisingly, went very well.  Tuesday and Wednesday were filled with miscellaneous quizzes and makeup work, and Thursday was the mother load:  a qualifying round for a state competition and an AP Statistics test that I continue to have nightmares about.

However, all of that hustling and hectic-ness has really paid off;  this is the first weekend in a long assortment of weekends that I haven't felt completely overwhelmed by homework or ongoing projects. Plus, dare I say it:  it's beginning to feel a lot like the holiday season!  No time is better for new beginnings.

Prep For A Day

Now, on to some of my favorite links from the past week:
Rosie has once again convinced me to take up traveling;  Boston has never looked so appealing...
Can we talk about how cute the J. Crew kids' holiday line is?
Anthropologie has the most beautiful wall art:  this piece reminds of the sea, and this piece is lovely for any animal lovers out there...
If anyone is still fixated on pumpkin (I don't blame you), this is the video for you to watch!
Lastly, I'm excited to announce that my family is taking a Christmas trip to Disney this December--and everyone knows that no vacation is complete without good food...

Let's be honest:  this week was just as eye-opening as it was hectic.  It was simultaneously a beginning and an end to many things, on both smaller and larger scales. The only thing left for us to do is to march onward, to face this new beginning with courage and perseverance.  In light of that, I have but one piece of advice for you: "Believe in the sun, even when it's not shining.  Believe in love, even when you feel it not.  Believe in God, even when He is silent."

How was your week?



  1. how cute do you look in your animal hospital scrubs!!
    If I could only wear all the J.Crew holiday line....

    1. Thank you, Katelyn! I agree--if I could wear that line, I'd want the holidays to last indefinitely!
