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.

Mama’s Boy

img_9636-400x400

Mama’s Boy: the staple for Athens weekends. The wait is always out the door and sometimes wrapped around the block, but going in the early morning or an hour before they close is your best bet for less than a half hour of wait time. If you go during peak brunch hours just stick it out – Mama’s Boy biscuits are definitely worth the wait!

I went recently with friends. Almost all of us got biscuit sandwiches. I’ve had the fried green tomatoes before and they were great, but nothing compares to my beloved egg and cheese biscuit.

If you’re ever in Athens, Mama’s Boy is a must!

Labor Day in the Classic City

Because of my hectic schedule, I decided to stay in Athens for Labor Day this year. I have a full itinerary mapped out for myself and anyone else that wants to join me.

Athens, GA

I still have to wake up early to take online quizzes and do some homework, but as soon as noon hits I’m a free girl! I’m planning on heading over to the Georgia Museum of Art. The reason behind my visit? Andy Warhol and other famous pop-art artists have their works on display until September 20th! I’ve seen one Andy Warhol in real life and I am stoked to see another.

The greatest part about living in Athens in the music scene. I wish I went to concerts more often, but with my classes starting early and my meetings running later at night it’s hard to catch a break. Luckily UGA doesn’t have classes today so I’m free to check out some rad bands visiting the city, like Social Circle and Bay Creature who are both playing at Flicker Theater and Bar at 9 pm!

Or I could hop on over to Grindhouse Killer Burgers (home of the best veggie burger in ATH) for their Sex, Drugs, and Rock’n’Roll trivia night. They even have cash prizes for the winners, and for me cash prizes means more Amazon shopping haha

What are your plans for Labor Day?

Eclipse

Today there is going to be a total solar eclipse crossing the United States, something that hasn’t happened in Georgia in about a hundred years! The eclipse begins and ends in different times at different places in the United States. For a good chart of beginning and ending times for the eclipse, check out this website.

I’ll be in Moccasin State Park today, watching the eclipse with family and friends. The University of Georgia has opened up it’s football field for students to view the eclipse, but most other universities have closed for the day.

Here is a good map of the eclipse’s path. 

Here’s an article about the best livestream’s for watching the total solar eclipse if you’re nowhere near its path.

Back ATH It!

Junior year is really happening, y’all, and I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing this past week has been. I moved into my house on the 7th and started recruitment for Delta Gamma the very next day at 7 am! After that, it’s been a whirlwind.

Last year I did a post about my room in the Delta Gamma house with pictures of how I decorated. I didn’t make one this year because I’m still trying to unpack all my stuff. Let me know in the comments section below if you’d like another room decor post!

So back to recruitment. This year I recruited every single round. To say that I’m exhausted is an understatement. Not only do I love sharing the joy my sisters bring me year round, I love being able to goof off in between rounds and get to know all my sweet UGA DG’s even better. This year I had the most amazing bump group (mainly because I got to recruit with my little Rachel!).


Below is a photo of my pledge class from last year’s bid day. I can’t wait to meet all my new sisters on the lawn tomorrow night!

Last night I did something very, very special. I volunteered with the Arch Society, as well as five other student orgs vital to the university, to help make freshman welcome a reality. The freshmen at the University of Georgia have the opportunity to walk into Stanford Stadium and take pictures on the field. They are welcomed by their orientation leaders, the Redcoat Marching Band, the SGA president, Kirby Smart the head football coach, and President Morehead. I passed out waters and cleaned up trash with my DG sister Stacy.

There’s definitely nothing like being back in Athens. Go Dawgs! 

The Ultimate Preppy Sticker Post 2

It’s been a while since I made my original Ultimate Preppy Sticker Post. Since then there are so many new brands with stickers and some old brands that stopped giving their stickers away.
