Man I love college

As my first year of college comes to a rapid end, I wanted to share a few thoughts… Things I learned Freshman Year:  9 am is the earliest class I can handle. My internal clock got totally readjusted – I went to bed by 10 (usually 9) in high school, now it’s more like 1am….

Last week in Lex

Much like this time last year, I was once again anticipating putting on a beautiful long gown and attending a dance with a cute date & my best friends. This time it wasn’t prom I was looking forward to, it was my sorority Formal! The preparations were similar to last year but the event was…

LEX.

What a whirlwind of a weekend. As I was doing homework in my bed Friday morning, I get Snapchats from my mom, Thea, Lauren, and Marissa – my family. I was a little confused why I got all of them right in a row, so I opened them, and to my surprise, they were all…

New Year, New Me…I hope!

Everyone says at the start of a New Year that they are going to make some grand life changes, they are going to work out, eat more healthy or lose weight etc, etc, etc. Well, yes I hope everyone does some things that are good for you in the upcoming year, but it doesn’t have to be something…

F•R•I•E•N•D•S

I’ll be there for you…my first semester of college is already over. I can’t even believe it. This semester taught me all sorts of things…how to do my own laundry, how to spend money really quickly 😬, how to get to class on time with barely any sleep, and most importantly, how to find a…

Warby Parker Winter Collection 2016

  Hellloooo all! It has been such a whirlwind these past few months at college. From taking my first college exam, to rushing a sorority, to midterms, to friends, and then to finals, it has just been so much! But thankfully I have had some trusty (and fashionable!) glasses by my side that has been…

Dorm Room Decor- Sorority Style

When it comes to the college roommate lottery – I know won the grand jackpot! I’d like to think it was the first bit of good luck I had when I chose the University of Kentucky. These girls have become my world, my best friends  & my family away from home. We’re all different but…

Roll Cats

Cats by 90!

Happy Caturday! I grew up in Wisconsin where cheering on our local sports teams was a major favorite fall activity… On Friday we cheered on our high school football team while wearing our school colors or theme gear (go AHS!). Then state turned red on Saturdays when everyone changed into Badger gear – red &…

Sailor Style

My favorite part of summer? Regatta season! I love getting together to compete against my sailor friends from other beautiful inland lakes to see who is the best of the best.  This summer I was involved in a couple C Scow events as a competitor (with my dad a.k.a Captain Bill!) as well as a…

Busy Summer

Long summer days & even longer summer nights are here! I’ve been having a blast sailing & hanging on the lake, being with friends & getting ready for college. I also absolutely loving coaching & teaching my sailing kids everyday – they truly are a great group of young sailors. In the past eight months I’ve…

Hello world!! Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, I have been ridiculously busy. I graduated high school, turned 18, started my summer coaching job, and had my college orientation within the past few weeks and these have definitely taken up all my time. But I am here today to share with you my festival…
