TGIF, go Vols!

Happy Friday, Y'all! This has been such a crazy week, but it has also been so great - let's get started!

1. Tailgates

When we were planning out which UK games and which UT games to go to we planned for mostly games at the beginning of the season so that we would have more time on the weekends as it got closer to exams to study. Well, this is the last game of the season for us and I am so excited about it! Not because it is the last, but because it is going to be so much fun. As you may have gathered from yesterday's post, I love tailgating. What's not to love? Great food, drinks, and company! This was the scene a few weeks ago -

2. Writing Requirement, almost Done!

I'm sure all law schools have some kind of writing requirement so those of you in law school are probably somewhat familiar with it. We have to write a paper that is about 6500 words, which works out to somewhere between 25 and 30 pages. Let me say, that is a lot of writing. I finally turned in a first full draft this week and it is such a relief!

3. My BareMinerals Arrived 

Way before (okay, a few years before) Birchbox and Ipsy and all of the other boxes were around I started getting my BareMinerals make up delivered to me. This was mostly out of necessity because there was not a Sephora or Bare Minerals store where I lived, but I have come to love it. Apparently some people don't know this even exists - even some of my friends who wear Bare Minerals - but it is great! Every 4 months, I receive the powder foundation, mineral veil and primer. I wear make up somewhat regularly, but I don't make my self late just to put it on. Every 4 months works great for me because of that, but you can also get it every 2 months or every 3 months if you wear makeup more frequently. Because I only get it ever 4 months it is always such a great surprise and my October shipment finally came this week :)

4. The Shopping Freeze is OVER

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I put a self imposed spending freeze on myself. For no real reason I put this weekend as the dead line (it was over a month), and it is finally over! Sometimes I get in a routine of ordering a lot of things online or going shopping - what girl doesn't, right? So every now and then I just put a spending freeze on myself to force me to stop and think about what I actually want and what I actually need. Since it is over, it means I will probably be ordering this jacket verrrrry soon!

5. Payday!

I mean, let's be real - who doesn't love payday?? Lucky for me that my shopping freeze just happens to be over too!

How was your week?

Have a Great Weekend, Y'all!
