Week Re-Cap

Can you believe it is already Dec. 30th?! Because I can't! This week has been pretty good, we had Christmas, saw Star Wars {loved it!}, went to a hockey game, did some shopping, and just relaxed. Yesterday I had lunch with my grandmama and today I am headed for Atlanta {the Peach Bowl}, so keep up on snapchat with me {hap213}-xoxo darling, Hayden. 
When I got home I immediately took a photo of the amazing palm trees along McGregor Blvd. {via}
And no homecoming would be complete 
without a bagel from Bagel Factory.
I am seriously obsessed with scarves. {via}
If you know anything about the real Florida, you know how amazing a Publix sub is.
Finally got around to making a roll cake 
{checking something off of my 101 in 1001}!
Since we only got home two days before Christmas
 we didn't have time to get a tree. We opted for placing our 
presents around our {non-functioning} fireplace. 
Our Christmas card this year was selfies of us {taken with a selfie
 stick b/c we are those obnoxious tourists} in front of 
Austin's famous murals. {via}
Brunch on Sunday at McGregor Cafe
Went to my first hockey game!

Resolutions in Review

So last year I made the following resolutions, so let's see how I did: 

1. Explore More // I think I accomplished some of this. There are still so many places in Austin I have yet to venture to, but I have gotten better. Meeting Hannah was one of the best things that happened because she loves exploring like I do! We have tried so many new restaurants together & I am so thankful for that. I also finally went to the Graffiti Park. Then back home I explored a lot more over the summer, especially things I hadn't done in a long time. I still need to work on this resolution, but I think I did a pretty good job with it.
2. Live Music // I am slightly disappointed with myself on this one. I did go and see Ra Ra Riot & Small Pools but that was it. I live in Austin, Texas for god sakes, why can I not accomplish this small feat?! So while I did see more live music than normal I need to work on this. I am hoping to get tickets to Adele {cross your fingers} and I am hoping to go to the Cactus Cafe at some point next semester.
3. Get Out There More // I think I have definitely accomplished this & I am looking forward to doing even more of it in 2016. I joined Comm Council, inducted a new group of sisters, and have a best friend. 2015 was really a year of friendship for me and I enjoyed every minute of it! 
4. Do Not Be Afraid Of Being Alone // Yes, this goal was something that I was hoping I could do but wasn't sure if it would work out. But it did! I now live alone in an amazing apartment, can eat meals by myself, go to museums by myself, and just enjoy being with just myself. It is a seriously great feeling not having to feel pressured to find someone to hang out with at all times of the day
5. Be Myself // I am still hard at work with this goal. I think I have gotten better but I think I can improve even more. I am still nervous in my own skin but in 2015 I did become slightly more comfortable than 2016. It's a work in progress and I am okay with that.

Week Re-Cap

I'M BACK!!! {In Florida, I should clarify}. I am so happy to be home, sleeping in my bed, eating bagels {like literally right now eating one}, and drinking Dunkin Donuts coffee. 
Anyways, this week has been amazing b/c we were still on our crazy road trip through Texas. We were in San Antonio, Waco, Shreveport and Jackson throughout the entirety of this post. I am working on posting things about my trip through Texas and I am writing a long form travel article on my experience in District so keep your eye out for that early next year! Aside from that I am reflecting on 2015 and planning for 2016. Hope y'all are having a great week-xoxo darling, Hayden! 
A really pretty lunch at an even prettier place, The Guenther House in San Antonio. {via}

Went to the Dr. Pepper Museum in Waco &
