Deep Breath.

Hey Hey, Happy Friday! 😀 I’m sorry I’ve been MIA as of late, but I’ve been busy having fun, studying and enjoying the gorgeous spring weather that we’ve been seeing! 😉 Sometimes, life online needs to take the backburner. This week was a great reminder of enjoying life, something I haven’t been doing so much lately thanks to stress about studying abroad, school, doctor’s appointments… This week was like I just took a deep breath and actually allowed myself to say “yes,” to some things and “no” to others. To really just live in the moment.

Besides these realizations and building friendships this week, I went home on Wednesday night. I loved seeing my baby,

Monsieur Gaston

I got to see this face…

I miss her so much at school!

I also went to dinner and yoga with my mom. Yoga Thursday morning was great==I have been taking it easy the last few weeks and haven’t done much yoga, and the class was great in loosening me up and relaxing a bit!  DInner was sushi, again! I wasn’t planning on sushi but when she suggested it I had to take her up on the offer. We have the best sushi restaraunt in my hometown! What can I say, sushi three nights this week? 😉 That’s got to be a personal record, for sure!

Yesterday I had a lot of reading to do, but with the gorgeous weather I wanted to spend it outside…


So I went back to the lake to walk a lap and do some reading!

with English book in tow!

I wanted to share two especially delicious breakfasts, that centered around my boyf:



I was able to go home the other night was because my morning–and only–class for the day had been cancelled. I made good use of my free morning to make homemade crepes! That’s a buttermilk pancake and egg beaters crepe filled with DCD, frozen berries and banana slices, blackberry jalapeno jam and sprinkled with granola on top!


This morning I utilized the empty jar for to make my first ever OIAJ! I’m not a huge fan of oats, but when topped with frozen berries and crunchy cereal, it was delicious! It reminded me of dessert for breakfast!

OIAJ base, DCD jar!

Tonight I had my first meeting with my french theatre group. It was a little nervewracking speaking French in front of these people who are so obviously more experienced than me, but it ended up being really fun, and I really like some of the people in my group. I’m excited about this new endeavor!

Tomorrow I have an almost-all-day sorority annual event to attend. Other plans for the weekend include hanging out with a new boy tonight, a possible party, possible movie, and possibly a date with my little sister. 😉 Oh, and the ever-growing pile of reading and studying I have for upcoming finals.

Hope you all had a great kick-off to your weekends, any fun plans?!

I’ll leave you with a picture of my campus last night. The blooming cherry blossoms are so pretty.

Questions pour vous:

Best new breakfast? Best thing about being home? Does your mood change with the weather? I always feel like I get the ‘winter blues’ and definitely feel happier and more energetic when spring rolls around. Do you notice a difference?


Oh, btw: I never revealed my one truth: I’ve been mistaken for T Swift.. uh, yeah…
