Fridays are always fabulous, but there is something extra special about this Friday.
But you'll just have to read my high 5 for Friday list to find out what I'm talking about ;)
(Refer to #3)

SO let's get to it!


I'm linking up with Lauren at From My Grey Desk 
& sharing my top 5 favorite things from this week:

Getting to eat strawberry shortcake with this guy :)
(and not even feeling guilty about it!)

I finally decided on a graduate program. After much prayer and lots of research, I'll be starting the Master of Social Work program at USF in August 2013...if I get accepted that is! I'm taking a year off to get my application together and to load up on volunteer hours. I met with the advisor yesterday and she is an absolute doll. I am so, so stoked :)

Okay so I'm not doing anything SUPER exciting (minus a few beach trips and dinner dates), but honestly I'm so ready for a week of vegging out and catching up on life.

Adam & I tried a new church this week and we both liked it a lot. Everyone was so nice & inviting. And I love smaller, more intimate churches and this one is just that! This picture is in between the two buildings that the church uses.

I got a new iPhone case...loveeee!
I have to thank Lauren for posting about society6.

And there you have it...my week in a nice little top 5 bundle ;)
Happy Friday, people! Please, please enjoy it!


  1. love it all! that first pic is SO cute of you!

  2. So excited for you about number 2!! I am sure without a doubt you will be accepted! How could you not be?!? I need details though. What are you going for with this program!? Social work, teaching?! Gotta email ya on this one I guess ;) (I've also been horrible about emailing...again, bad me!).

    Am I aloud to say just how pretty you are again when I just commented your last post and said that already :p

  11. I love that phone case! Happy spring break, it's our break too!

  12. I'm jealous of your spring break...I could use a week off! Enjoy it :)

  13. I love the iPhone case! I looked over at the site too when Lauren posted about it. There were so many great choices that I was overwhelmed and didn't choose one. But I may have to make a visit back! :)

  14. Congrats on school - that's awesome! I knew you'd be led to the place you were meant to be. Your new iPhone case - heart! Hit up the beach for me and enjoy your week off.


  15. YAYYY for deciding on a graduate program! I have a good friend who got her Masters in Social Work, and she absolutely loves the field she currently works in!! I know you'll love it, and the people you meet with be amazing! Proud of you gooooorl!

    Happy Spring Break WOOOOOP!! I have nothing planned either for my Spring Break (not for a few more weeks) BUT that's the best thing... NOTHING planned ;)

  16. Huh, my best friend got her BA at usf for social work too. She's working so much now! But she loves doing it. She also has spent so much time at the jail, making visits that is. Lol good luck!

    Yay for spring break! I wish I was in fl right now for the beach. Go for me! :-)

    I love smaller churches too. I grew up in one that had about 50-60. It's been nice going to a bigger church now for a change, but the small ones will always be in my heart. :-)

    Happy weekend and spring break!!!

  17. Congrats about school!! Good luck with everything! You'll do great though :) LOVE your new iPhone case!!! SO cute!

  23. i totally looked at getting that phone case...love it! looks like you had a great week! :) yay for spring break!

  24. You had an awesome week! :-) Congrats on your decision! I know you were talking about education, and as a teacher, I half wanted to tell you how hard it is to get a job in teaching these days because of all the budget cuts...or maybe that's just in Ohio? But, I didn't want to discourage you from your dream, and anyways, I'm glad you settled on social work...I think you will touch a lot of lives!

  25. I love all your pictures, you're so cute in the picture eating strawberry shortcake :)

    Yay for Graduate School! I am trying to find an online school right now AND switching my major :/

    Oh and how do you add your "You May Also Like." at the bottom of your posts?!
