3. i started a new study this week and have heard so many good things about it. i can’t wait to get deeper into it.
4. i applied for GRADUATION. still processing that little fact.
5. my sister and i had a google+ hangout the other day…i don’t know if she’s ever looked better.

    I love that you and Kate live so close to each other yet you do Google Hangouts! Not to mention, you text with your roommate when you're both home. 😉

    Thanks again for the Nine West tote! I love it! Enjoy your weekend, Lauren (and Otis and Milo)!

    I hope you love the James study! I highly recommend doing some of the memory. I didn't memorize the whole thing, but did a few chapters and it was greatly impacting.

    Hey I'm in NC too! It did get really cold here this week. I called the weatherman's bluff and nearly froze my bum bum off Monday morning. I like the cool crisp air of Autumn though. Winter is another story. I'm so Jelly that you applied for graduation. I have a year to go. Congrats!
