I am so glad to be able to say 

This week was a doozie. With midterms coming up & work picking up,
I am totally swamped! 2 months til graduation, people! TWO MONTHS.


Today I'm excited to be linking up with Lauren at From my Grey Desk
for High Five for Friday :)


So here are my 5 favorite things from this week:

Good old snail mail. You all know by now how much I love getting snail mail. Well I love
writing snail mail, too :) So this week I wrote 7 letters by hand, and let me tell you, I am
so excited to put them in the mail! 

This week I reconciled with a good friend that I had a dispute with a few months back.
I've been praying about this for awhile now and God brought us back together as friends.
So thankful for that :)

THIS EMAIL! You can't see it very well, but the line before the highlighted line...my graduation application was approved. Holla!

The announcement about the March 7th announcement (woah) of the iPad 3! I've been waiting oh so patiently for this :) Adam is buying me one for my birthday (which was in January, but obviously they weren't out yet).


I had the opportunity to guest post over at Hollie Takes Notes yesterday and that was super exciting, because she's a blogger that I look up to :) I did my post on "My Real Life vs. My Pinterest Life." You can read it here. AND I loved doing this post so much that I must just do a round 2 and post it on my own blog soon ;)


I'm also linking up with
Hollie today for Follow Friday!



  1. Snail mail is the best! Also,that post over at Hollie's was awesome! :D

  2. I've been a terrible blogger this week and havent had time to comment on anyones, posts! So today you get a very long comment because I love everything about your top 5's (: First of all yay for snail mail, and the stationary is so adorable! Second of all.... DOUBLE YAY for graduation being SO close. As for the iPad 3... you know I'm as excited as you are! Hope you have a fantastic Friday, Jessica!!

    I love Hollie Takes Notes! I'll have to go check out your post!

  6. On my way to work this morning I was thinking about a penpal I used to have when I was a kid, and how much I hate only getting bills in the mail now! Happy Friday!

  11. Congrats on your "soon-to-be" graduation! I love that you are writing snail mail. I used to have a few penpals when I was younger. It would be awesome to have some penpals these days! It would really take you back to the good ol' days :)

  12. I absolutely loved your guest post for Hollie. You're not the only one who dreams of a Pinterest life. Send Tampa some love for me. It's been snowing all week. Our state motto should be "March - where winter begins in Idaho". :-\

  23. First, I must say your blog is absolutely adorable. Second, I love your outlook on life. You appreciate the things that most people take for granted, like getting your graduation application approved.
