Week Re-Cap

It has been a week. I am still not feeling well (and now I'm not hungry...which is weird for me y'all). So I am monitoring that and getting ready to make a doctor's appointment (which is one of my least favorite things ever). I have spent a lot of time in bed and a TON of time studying. In between that, I visited the Blanton Museum with my FIGlets, participated in yet another Big Little Reveal, went to Barton Springs, and a few other things. This weekend is jam packed with various events & I am very excited about it! What are y'all up to? -xoxo darling, Hayden

My FIG took a trip to The Blanton Museum of Art.

Aren't they so cute?!

I spent Saturday at Zilker Park with some of my Ladybirds! 

They're also really cute!

The VP & I

It was female spirit group night at a soccer game on Sunday night.

Monday on my lunch break from studying I early voted! 

 I am so excited I got to vote in my first presidential election {hello 101 in 1001}! 
And I am so happy to say I got to vote for the first female presidential candidate in a major party.

Big Little Reveal

Yet another Big Little Reveal is in the books for the LBs. I was so happy to welcome Melina in to my fam as her GG-Big...like woah I'm already a GG-Big?! CRAZY. I also happened to match a friend's theme so I was in some of their awkward family photos. Check out all of the craziness below-xoxo darling, Hayden.

Fall To-Do List

I know we are firmly into Fall but I am just now getting around to making a to-do list. And I am excited about it. I just started working on my pumpkin {it's a little something like last year's but with a Texas twist} and Hannah & I are working on a horseback riding trip. Is it okay that now I admit I am really scared of riding a horse???? Because I am kind of terrified but my 101 in 1001 is about conquering my fears...so we shall see. I am going to a pumpkin party next week & I can't wait to eat all of the pumpkin flavored items...I'm making my famous pumpkin spice cupcakes with cinnamon cream cheese icing. My balcony has been used approximately 4 times...so I am trying to use it more once it gets nice outside. I'm thinking Saturday/Sunday mornings with a mug of hot coffee & a good book or magazine. The Ladybirds is having a clothing drive in November & I need to donate so what better way than to clean out my closet? My dad is flying in the first weekend of November so we can go to Lubbock, Texas {where Texas Tech University is located} so I am pumped to be visiting a new Texas town. The amount of scarves I own is scary but I always forget to wear them. I am making it a priority to wear all of my scarves at least once this fall/winter season. And finally, I will be early voting on Monday because I hate lines & I cannot wait to vote for the first female {hopefully} president. What are the items on your Fall to-do list? -xoxo darling, Hayden

Week Re-Cap

Y'all. I have been so sick this week that I have very little photos. I spent all weekend re-watching things on Netflix {Bring It On & 10 Things I Hate About You}, sleeping, and coughing. I got outside for the football game & a trip to South Congress that I had been planning for weeks. I am only just now getting back in the swing of going to meetings at night and doing fun things again. This cold + cough has really knocked me on my butt. However, I am getting better. This weekend I have a few things planned but really I will be doing a lot of studying for finance. How are y'all? -xoxo darling, Hayden

 Big Top Candy Shop had some of my favorites from London.

 Mary & I both got cookies & cream milkshakes...really just to take these cute photos. 


We beat Iowa State!

A Weekend in Dallas

Last weekend Hannah & I ventured to Dallas for a little weekend getaway. We had a BLAST! Below are all of the photos we took and a vlog I made documenting everything we did. If any of y'all have been to Dallas you'll probably recognize Neiman Marcus, the Dallas Arboretum, the State Fair, and more. Hope y'all are having a wonderful Tuesday-xoxo darling, Hayden. 

Lunching at Neiman Marcus' Zodiac Room

Y'all. They had popovers.

The food was delicious! 

The infamous giant eyeball.

The Dallas Arboretum pumpkin patch was one of the best things 
I've done all month {more photos here}.

One of my favorite parts of the Draper James store in Highland Park.

I found Milk & Cream on Instagram and it was as good as it 
sounds -- a donut with ice cream in the middle 
{I had cookie monster, vanilla ice cream with oreos}.

We went downtown to the Green Belt to watch the downtown lights.

We had a reservation for Sissy's at 9:15pm & we had no regrets. 

I had the fried chicken followed by coconut cream pie & it was fab.

Saturday bright and early we got up, grabbed Whataburger 
& headed to the Red River Rivalry! 

We may have lost the game but we all won the day.

Big Tex! 

The infamous Cookie Fries -- they were pretty good! 

A ride on the ferris wheel to finish out the day.

Week Re-Cap

Whew, what a week it has been. I am still recovering from a very tiring, draining, but amazing week. It started off with a 6am wake-up call on Wednesday morning to go to "Luke's Diner" in Austin then was followed by a Thursday evening drive to Dallas, a Friday spent at Neiman Marcus, a Saturday spent at the Texas State Fair, a Sunday spent in the car, a Monday studying extremely hard, and a Tuesday of taking a test/finally going to bed at a decent hour. What have y'all been up to? -xoxo darling, Hayden

Getting up super early for the Luke's cup was worth it! 

They even had signs to make it seem like the real Luke's! 

A trip to Dallas would not be complete without a stop at the Czech Stop! 

Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Kolaches for the win.

Besties taking on the Dallas Arboretum.

Fall Wardrobe Essentials

My favorite season is upon us {well, it doesn't feel that way in Texas, but we're getting there}! Fall is my favorite because of the leaves, the weather, the football, and Thanksgiving {my favorite holiday}. Below I compiled some of my favorite pieces for this fall, lots of comfy sweaters and dresses to pair with tights and booties...speaking of booties is everyone else as obsessed as I am? I want a pair so bad! What are y'all wearing this fall? -xoxo darling, Hayden

I have been going hard Monday, Tuesday, and today {my day started at 6am this morning and doesn't end until approx. 9:30pm tonight...and then I have to pack}. BUT, everything has been going well! I have spent a lot of time in office hours, in meetings, and in classes. Tomorrow Hannah & I are off to Dallas for a long weekend. WE ARE SO EXCITED! I am still taking in Dallas recommendations you might have so please put them in the comments below. How is your week? -xoxo darling, Hayden

 Hannah and I ventured back to Cow Tipping Creamery
