Week Re-Cap

Hey y'all! So in exciting news I decided to open an Etsy shop! There is only one listing right now because I am super busy, but it is my "Doors of UT" {which if you are interested in, please please please go buy}! I have had a lot of fun this week but I have also been super stressed out. Study abroad involves a lot of paperwork, Moody College of Communication Week is coming up, and school has been a little difficult. But it will all be fine. I am headed to Rhode Island & Boston this weekend which will be a much needed break from campus. What are y'all up to? -xoxo darling, Hayden.

 My little in Comm Council, Madeline, & I had to dress up for meeting.

On Friday night, Hannah & I went to Rodeo Austin
{my first ever Rodeo} & I got to try my first funnel cake.

 Being there was so incredibly Texas.

 Bullfighting is scary but also amazing.

 Josh Turner {also, hello 101 in 1001 item}.

 Saturday Libby & I went to the TEDxSpeedway Plaza Conference
{again, hello 101 in 1001}.

 My parents sent me an Easter box and let's just say
 it hasn't really made it to today.

 Saturday evening Hannah & I took a walk around Zilker {see here}. 

Followed up by gelato at Dolce Neve {the Chocolate 70% and Egg Cream & Lemon}.

 Some of my sisters & I got brunch on Easter Sunday.

The G-Little is so precious.

An Afternoon at Zilker Park

If you have been following HT at all you have probably realized I am not super "outdoorsy." Yes, I like fresh air & to see nature but I am not out in it everyday. However, when Caline was visiting {and she is way more "outdoorsy" than I am} I took her to the Zilker Botanical Garden & then we walked the trail along Lady Bird Lake at Zilker Park. This was one of my favorite experiences since I moved to Austin; so much so that the on Saturday Hannah & I went and walked the trails just to get some fresh air. Check out the photos below-xoxo darling, Hayden. 

We followed up our time at Zilker with a stop at Mighty Cone & "Hey, are you gonna eat that?" as well as Holla Mode.

Big Little Reveal

After a long week of suprises, we finally got to reveal to our littles who we were! Since my little is preppy like I am, I went out full Vineyard Vines {even getting those foam whale hats}. Have y'all done a big little reveal? -xoxo darling, Hayden

 I'm so excited to have Serena as my G-Little! 

 The adorable family.

Week Re-Cap

Happy Wednesday y'all! I am still recovering from spring break but it has been a good week thus far! Tonight is when my little & I dress up for our Communication Council meeting so make sure you are following my instagram & snapchat {hayden213} for all the details on that {hint: our costumes are food related}. I have a test tomorrow but I am going to the Brittany Spears Sing-Along after so it will all be good. Saturday TED is hosting TED Talks on campus & I am going {hello 101 in 1001}! How is y'all's week going? -xoxo darling, Hayden

A hair cut selfie...I'm sorry. 

 Dinner @ Blu with Katie.

Big Little Week

If y'all remember from the fall, I am really into Big/Little Week. So when it was decided I would have another {and final} little in Ladybirds, I knew I had to do it big. On Monday I decorated her door, on Tuesday I sent her Tiff's Treats, on Thursday I decorated her room, and on Friday I gave her the gifts. It was a lot of work, because I went craftier this time, but it was so worth it! I think {hope?} she liked everything! See the photos from reveal on Thursday! -xoxo darling, Hayden

Found some of her favorite quotes on Pinterest.

Week Re-Cap

I had to finish up my project for a journalism class on Wednesday 
& that led me to UT's Microfarm! 


A #tbt to when I was a child model, posted before I
 hopped on my flight home from for spring break {via}.

First morning back in FLA means The Bagel Factory.

My dad and I visited Ortona Indian Mounds in rural Florida, and it was beautiful! 

A spring training game, naturally.

Finally got to try Del's! And I loved it! 


This little guy {also named Hayden} got adopted on Monday & it was the cutest thing ever!

FTK -- Dance Marathon

About a week ago {from Sunday} I stood for 12 straight hours {it was EXHAUSTING}, but totally worth it. I was standing "for the kids" in an effort to raise money for the Dell Children's Hospital in Austin. Dance Marathons are very prevalent on college campuses and my spirit group helped raise over $1,000 for the cause. {Side Note: To be honest, I thought there would be more dancing & that it would be slightly more like the Gilmore Girls episode, but it wasn't, still fun, just different}. gilIt was an awesome experience, and now I know that I can stand for that long and still get up the next morning and go to class. I have included some of the photos from that day. We had to change colors every two hours {so that is why I am wearing so many differnet outfits}. Check it out below & let me know if you have particiapted in a marathon-xoxo darling, Hayden.

Our Miracle Kid loved pineapples, so it was kind of perfect.

The G-Little came to visit me! 

I tried my first Red Bull...

After 12 hours it was time for a Slurpee.

Week Re-Cap

Last week was amazing, hung out with Caline, ate a lot of delicious food, got my little {post coming soon} and danced for 12 hours straight without sitting down #FTK. This week not so much, I have quite a few exams and lots of scholarship applications due not to mention the fact that I need to clean my apartment and pack for spring break. I am so excited to be going home tomorrow because I have been kind of homesick lately & I am so excited to eat a bagel Friday morning. Over break I have a few goals, which I will be talking about in a later post. What have y'all been up to? -xoxo darling, Hayden. 

 Hook 'Em from our new sign! 

Franklin BBQ for the delicious win {see The Food Diaries here}. 

Finally got back to Voodoo! 

It's casual. 

Last meal with Caline at Goodall's Kitchen

Hannah & all her friends.

Part of my big/little reveal outfit! 

I finally got Hannah to go to a baseball game! 

One of my all time favorite candies from when I went to Ireland.

Coffee Chat: Oscars 2016

Yes, I realize this is late {by like four days} but I am still going to do it, because it is fun. 
So grab your coffee & let us begin the chat about the Oscars-xoxo darling, Hayden.

Very nice, very simple.

She looks amazing, this dress is stunning. 

Tina looks nice!

Very pretty, love the color! 

Not a fan.

I feel like this would be gorgeous if the cutout wasn't in the very middle.

She looks gorgeous!

Did not even recognize her. 

Clearly green is very popular.

Hate the belt, would have been so much better without it.

Not the most flattering but love the color.

Hate the choker, like the dress.

This dress on her is perfection. Possibly one of my best dressed picks.

Very different, but still pretty.

I like the cape! 

 I feel like this is a really really bad prom dress. Like where is her corsage? 

Hate the pattern.

Not a fan.

Very simple, very nice.

She is adorable but I don't love the upper portion of this dress.

Very different than her usual look -- but not in a bad way.

She is my goal in life.


She looks beautiful.

Throught I would hate it, kind of love it.

Very cool shaping. 


Simple, pretty. 

Love the dress, hate the necklace. 

So classy & cute.

She looks amazing.

The length of this dress is awkward. 

Very pretty.

Bad prom.
Bad prom part II.

Week Re-Cap

Oh wow, this week has been INSANE, and to be honest I think the rest of the esmester will be insane.  I started off the week with a career fair, some tests/assignments, and then Hannah & I went to San Antonio for the day. We followed that up by babysitting and late night ice cream with Sophie. Saturday was Junior Day for the football team & the backhome bestie began her visit! Since then we have been doing all of the touristy things in Austin inbetween my classes. This week ends with some difficult assignments, big little reveal, and a dance marathon #FTK. What are y'all up to? -xoxo darling, Hayden. 

My Career Fair #ootd.

Took Hannah to Sandy's for the first time! 

And we went to San Antonio for the day on Friday.


Some delicious peanut butter pie.


Mission Concepcion

Saturday was Junior Day! 


 Hannah found the cutest bakery in Mueller this past weekend {Bribery}. 

The Tower was finally orange again! Congrats to our Swimming/Diving team! 

The best friend is here! 

Unfortunately we lost to Stanford.

Trying to get good karma for Leo on Sunday night for the 
Oscars {speaking of which, my usual Coffee Chat is 
going up tomorrow!}.

 Adorable {and delicious} sugar cookies from Whole Foods.
 One of the strangest candies I have ever purchased in my life...yet I kind of like it. 

Found out the Capitol is open until 10pm.
