high five for friday

yes, it’s that time again. do you believe it?!

this week has been pretty great because it’s my spring break! a whole week without class? seriously, a dream.
let’s have a look back at five of my favorite things from this week, shall we?
1. my hair has finally reached it’s goal length. although, now that it has, i have a new, longer goal length. i have been growing out my hair for at least seven years, no exaggeration. it’s still hard to look at this picture and actually believe that it’s the back of my head.  
2. nugget #2, aka milo, is the sweetest sleeper ever. 
i’m sure that watching birds for hours is super exhausting

3. i’m seriously into the glittery nail trend right now. 
4. i found the perfect pair of jeans at banana republic yesterday. perfect fit, perfect length, perfect wash. oh, and they were on clearance for $27. booyah. 
5. i finally downloaded j.d. greear’s book, gospel, onto my ipad. he just so happens to be the pastor at the church i attend here, so i know it will be great!

  9. I still can't believe those jeans! Such a steal!

    And your hair length? I feel you on that one! I purposely put off trimming my hair before my wedding just to get it as long as possible. But then I cut four inches off to nurture it back to health. πŸ˜‰ My hair is long, but I keep wanting it longer and longer. But I promise I won't go all Rupunzel.

    Happy Friday!

  10. I found my perfect pair of jeans in December and I almost cried!
    I'm SO short so I literally can NEVER find a pair without having to get them altered.
    Praise the Lord for Loft's petite section πŸ˜‰

    Happy weekend, lovely πŸ™‚
    Live up the last few days of your spring break!

  13. I've been growing my hair out for 7+ years and it's taking forever! I'm nowhere near the length of your hair. My hair just won't grow. It's barely below my shoulders.
