Week Re-Cap

It is the last week of school so I am off studying for a test but here are some photos I compiled Monday night-xoxo darling, Hayden.

Hannah & I finally went to Halcyon last week.

The fam visited for Thanksgiving so I took them to 
brunch at Counter Cafe.

Wednesday night we visited Fredericksburg for their 
holiday lights & stopped in at Hondo's for dinner & live music.

On Thanksgiving we went to the LSU v. Texas A&M game so 
we could experience A&M and so that I could pull for LSU.

The Core of Cadets did an amazing half-time show! 

Despite our loss on Friday, I was this close to Matthew so I kind of won...

It was Amanda's last game because she is 
graduating on Saturday (cue the tears) {via}

Love my recruiter girls! 

Devi came to the game so we had to take a photo! 

My new LB Officer Board is kind of amazing.

Week Re-Cap

It's been a pretty good week! My spirit organization had our semesterly retreat as well as initiation this past weekend. The football team lost (oh well). This week I have been trying lots of new restaurants for a school project (food photos & reviews coming soon!) and I have a lot of different events to attend. How are y'all doing? -xoxo darling, Hayden

These Muddy Buddies are DELICIOUS. My car to retreat loved them.

The Ladybirds out on retreat.

The g-little helped make retreat so amazing & I am so thankful for her. {via}

We may have lost the game but I got to do it with

 Initiation on Monday was fabulous! 

I love our fifth Petal class!

Quotes of the Week

That weekend went way to fast, am I right? It has been a weekend, let me tell you. I got very little sleep on Friday night {as in almost zero} because I was on retreat & then I had to get up at 5:40am...to be at the football stadium at 8:30am...and then we lost the football game...so yeah. I went to bed at 7:4pm on Saturday and then spent almost all of Sunday in bed watching Red Oaks on AmazonPrime. If you haven't seen the show and love/hate 80s fashion you should watch it. 
This week is a lot of catching up because I didn't get to this weekend. I have a few papers I want to get a head start on and of course lots of internship applications to finalize. 
As for blog news, I am super excited to be revealing my gift guides this week & next week, so get pumped-xoxo darling, Hayden.

Week Re-Cap

Happy Thursday y'all! It feels very strange to be posting the Week Re-Cap a day late but I hope you understand why it happened. This week started off amazing! My dad flew in and we ventured all through West Texas & BEAT TECH!!! It was such a fun game & I fell in love with more of Texas. I am working on a post about our journey so be on the look out for that next week as well as HT's gift guides {I am so pumped to release them}! Hope your week is getting better-xoxo darling, Hayden

I am not feeling in the blogging mood this morning. I couldn't bring myself to write my Week Re-Cap because I kind of just want to lay in a dark room and forget about everything. 

But I can't do that, no one can.

However, I still could not bring myself to post about my "week" in photos because this morning that seems fake. In my re-cap posts I only share the photos of my world as I want you to see it. And today my world seems bleak. 

I'm sorry about this y'all and I promise you will have a post coming at you tomorrow at 7am EST like normal but today I am taking a day to just grieve for something that I wanted to happen but didn't. 

I love y'all and thank you for your continued support and love-xoxo darling, Hayden.

Week Re-Cap

Happy Wednesday everyone! After a slightly stressful Monday/Tuesday I am in a really good mood {aside from the stupid headache I woke up with *rolls eyes*}. My dad flies in tonight & then we are headed to Lubbock on Friday {let me know if you have recommendations}. This past week I spent a lot of time with my fellow Ladybirds -- we had our annual Halloween party, cleaned our street & particpiated in Longhorn Halloween. On Saturday, we BEAT BAYLOR. And I met Matthew McConaughey...yeah that happened. What are y'all up to this week? -xoxo darling, Hayden

I took my FIGlets to a foodtruck park & got this delicious ice cream.

Ladybirds had their annual mystery Halloween party on Friday {via}.

Y'all. I met Matthew McConaughey on Saturday and we beat Baylor {via}.

Of course I had to get Mighty Cone on Sunday & it was phenomenal.

This past Halloween was so much fun! I just went to a Ladybirds party but we did our annual murder mystery play & played Werewolves. Everyone brought a dish & we had a blast! I dressed up as a Whataburger number and a ton of people dressed up as members of The Office. What did y'all dress up as for Halloween? -xoxo darling, Hayden
