My Life: October

October was crazy. I had three weeks of midterms, Delta Gamma Initiation, Homecoming, Delta Gamma Low Country Boil, Will’s 21st birthday, my mom’s birthday, and my roommate’s 21st birthday. It has been a month. But there’s only one thing left: Halloween! Whether or not I’ll actually celebrate is still undecided, but we’ll get there when we get there.

I went to the State Botanical Gardens of Georgia at the beginning of the month to complete a biology scavenger hunt. This was one of the required pictures I had to take.

We all saw my pumpkin patch fun in this post from the other day

I went home for fall break and look how much the leaves have changed!

I walked to Starbucks and passed the building I (as a small child) wanted to live in when I grew up

My tomato plants from this summer finally made tomatoes! And then were promptly killed by yesterday’s snowfall…

Happy Halloween!

Re-Think Your Pumpkin Carving Scraps

I love a good pumpkin patch! And luckily my housemates do too!

Milledge Baptist Church Pumpkin Patch

We all went to the Milledge Avenue Baptist Church Saturday and found gourds galore. I found the perfect, small one right off the bat.

While I love carving pumpkins, I always feel bad that the insides go to waste. I also hate that the smaller pumpkins I put up as decoration simply get thrown out. So I did a little brainstorming and like magic came up with a few simple solutions:

Happy haunting!

It honestly feels like life is moving at fifteen mph above the speed limit.  It’s been one of those “please, for the love of everything sacred, slow down!” weeks. And it’s only Monday. But the good news is that the Internet is always helping me find cool ways to distract myself from how overwhelmed I actually am.

Favorite Fall Things Right Now

I’m so excited that fall is finally here! And with fall comes UGA Homecoming! I don’t think I could ever express how thankful I am for all the opportunities the University of Georgia has given me. I’ve participated in Homecoming every single year of college. Last year I was the Community Outreach Chair, and this year I get to oversee all of Homecoming Court.

The University of Georgia has also given me the Arch Society. Not only have I found many of my close friends through Arch, I’ve gotten to meet some of the smartest, most driven individuals of my age. I am constantly amazed by their curiosity, selflessness, and intellect. Below are a few photos from our dinner at the President’s house. Arch President's House

While I don’t really enjoy football, getting to work the games with the Arch Society is a thrill. I may not know who all the players are but I certainly love the Dawg Nation spirit!

Fall also means getting my grand little!

And who would I be if I didn’t mention something from Target’s current dollar spot section? Of course it was love at first sight with this Hocus Pocus inspired candle!

Now that the weather is finally cooling down (okay, so, it’s still mid to upper 70’s in Athens…we’ll just go ahead and count it as “cooling down”) I can drink tea throughout the day without being hot and sweaty on both the outside and the inside. I really like drinking Throat Coat tea when the Freshman Plague rolls around. I get sick easily, and it always ends up involving my throat, so this tea really helps decrease the inflammation and irritation caused by both allergies and sickness. Plus each tea bag comes with a little inspirational quote! How cute.

Last but certainly not least, I’m excited to finally be able to wear boots again. These are my current favorites: Lucky Brand black booties.
