5 Things That Made My Week Wonderful

Friday, there are no words to describe how much I love you :) TRUE STATEMENT. 
Since I love Friday so much, today I'm going to tell you 5 of my favorite things from this past week.

I got my temporary diploma! I'm almost official :)


Me & 3 of my girlfriends started a girls' bible study group type thing. I'm SO incredibly excited to get closer with these girls and build unbreakable bonds with them :) Yay community!


BEACH DAY SATURDAY! It hasn't happened yet, but I'm too excited to not include it. What makes this beach day even more special than other ones? Friends from NC are down to visit...stoked to spend some time with them and to meet their new baby girl! 


I finally had my car cleaned & washed. OH MAN I have been putting that off for months. My car was absolutely dis.gust.ing! But now it's as good as new. You know you love my sweet bike rack on the back...


My Thursday night "to do" list was the length of my arm. And guess how much I got done...ZIP! Adam showed up at my apartment when he got off work with a Redbox & ice cream so needless to say I threw my "to do" list out the window last night. I love him so much :) Take that "to do" list!

Did you have a wonderful week?! I sure hope you did! 
And you know what else I hope? That you have an even better weekend :)

I'm linking up with Lauren for High Five for Friday!


  1. Mr. Adam is a lifesaver, isn't he?! And I know that ice cream is only for you right?! I don't do well sharing those mini-me sizes! hahahaha

    Congrats again friend on your accomplishment of finishing up school. Now let's get your training career on and poppin!!

    Happy Friday and have a super cool time at the beach... think of me in the glistening sun b/c it's departing Oregon and I be left with the pathetic rain!!

  2. Oh congrats on the 'temporary' degree :p and an awesome boyfriend!

  3. I adore your blog! I just found you via Hollie Takes Notes! Congrats on the diploma and the BF coming in just the nick of time to squash that to do list :) ps. I am also a Tampa girl :)

  5. yay for graduating!

    And my goodness, our men are os good to us in the "put that list down and relax with me" department! They just know when it's time to unwind....good men. :)

  6. Congratulations! I know your super happy that have that weight off of your shoulders! LOVE the biblestudy group! I was so excited to get in a new one (more like a awesome Sunday school) when I moved to Chalreston. I'm with you on the disgusting car!!!! The rain has been the only thing that washes mine lately :((

  7. I love redbox (and ice cream)!

    I also washed and vacuumed my car this weekend.. gotta love driving in a clean car :)

    happy friday xo

  8. i need to clean my car too. chris and I are started our own small group next week and I am really excited about - fellowship and community is wonderful!! I hope you have a great weekend jessica!!

  9. Yay for graduating! :) Have a great weekend!

  10. yay for the temp diploma! i can't wait to be done with school. and such a sweet boy you have for bringing redbox and ice cream. pretty sure there is no better combination. have a great beach day and weekend!

  11. I don't know why I think it's so funny that you posted your temporary diplmoa! Hahaha! I actually didn't get mine until 5-6 months after I graduated. I still walked at my graduation and everything, but I received my OFFICIAL diploma in the mail when I lived in NYC. One of my professors knew I was voluntarily continuing an internship until I moved at the end of the summer, so she told me I could just turn in my paper then. SAY WHAAA?! I took her up on that offer. :-) And the funny thing is that my name didn't have an asterisk next to my name in the program even though I was a conditional graduate. So weird! Of course, I turned in the paper, got an A, and got my real diploma.

    I hope you have a fantastic beach day tomorrow! I love you!

  12. Yay! Congrats! Graduation is awesome. I feel so relieved more than anything. I can also do more of what I love. Like read other books than textbooks. Go to dinner. Watch TV shows. Haha.

    have an awesome weekend love! You deserve it. Oh and so glad I am sponsoring this month. Wahoo!


  13. ice cream & redbox? Doesn't get any better!!

    I need a beach day pronto...doesn't look like it's happening until July. This is why I need to live on the beach.

  14. Adam is sweet!! I am glad you have a good one.

    My friend Lindsey and I have been talking about starting a girl bible study group! How crazy. We just had this conversation last wk. It will be amazing and will hold us accountable for more of the people we strive to be!!

    Hope you have a great wknd!! Xo

  15. love these! and you got yourself quite the catch!! cookie dough and a movie is the BEST!

  16. Congrats on the diploma!!
