Thinking Out Loud ; 4/10

Hey there lovelies! I can’t think of an intro for the life of me, so I will just go straight into the thoughts.


Thank you to the beautiful Amanda for hosting. ❤



1. I am BEYOND excited for tomorrow. I have been looking forward to tomorrow all flippin’ week. Even since last Friday. The reason behind all of this excitement is that my friend is coming to visit me from Texas! He is stationed in Texas, so we only get to talk to each other through Skype. He’s staying in Arizona until Monday, and we’re going to spend the entire weekend. We’ve been friends for such a long time. For about 2 years now. We met before he was deployed to Afghanistan. I wrote to him while he was there. We didn’t talk for quite some time, but then one day, he texted me and told me he was back. I don’t think you could even imagine my excitement! I don’t really know what we’re going to do this weekend, but he is going to pick me up from school and we will probably go get some dinner, go see a movie, and then figure it out from there. Ahh, so so so giddy. ^_^

2. I am the girl who HATES cutting her hair. Seriously, I will go months and months and months without cutting my hair.. I will seriously look so upset once the scissors reach my head. It was nerve-wrecking to see the locks fall to the floor. I’m really diggin’ my haircut though. I can’t remember the last time I had my hair at shoulder length, but I actually really enjoy it. The weather is getting warmer, so it is nice to not have the long locks there. I do miss them, but my hair will grow back healthier. 🙂


3. I cannot stop listening to this song. Ever since I was a little girl, I fell in love with the Spice Girls. Trust me, I still know the lyrics to all their songs, I have their movie on VHS, I constantly watched their music videos. I was always told I would be Baby Spice. I can see why. 😀

4. I am still having cravings up the wazoo. Seriously, this is getting ridiculous. I always get them at night. Does this happen with anyone else? Please tell me that I’m not alone..

5. I have also been loving these videos. I heard it in art one day while working on my mask. I feel in love after the first time. I was mesmerized by the instruments. I wish I knew how to play an instrument.

6. I really want to see the movie Neighbors. I find all of Seth Rogen’s movies hilarious! I may or may not of gotten all giddy when I saw that Zac Efron was in it. What can I see? He stole my heart ever since High School Musical. C’mon now.. you can’t deny those eyes… and that body.

7. I get to go to the mountains at night again this weekend! I have been really wanting to ever since I left them that night. It is just so peaceful and breath taking. I think that is going to be my new “clear my head” spot. I forget all my worries when I’m up there just looking out. I am hoping to spend a lot of time there over the summer. Late summer nights there? I think so.

8. Lately, I have been waking up at 4:30 a.m. I have no clue why. My body just naturally does. I take advantage of that time though, so I can make the rest of my day easy going. I always feel so productive when I finish a lot of tasks in the morning. Kinda badass or invincible. YaknowwhatImean? Yeah, you do.

9. I GET TO GO TO THE ZOO THIS WEEKEND AS WELL. In case you didn’t get the hint from my capslock, I am pretty flippin’ excited. You don’t even know how much I love going to look at the animals and taking pictures of them. I always get excited on the way there. It has been getting into the 90’s here already, so I will have to be bathing myself in sunblock, or I’ll end up looking like I belong with the lobsters. I kid you not, I don’t tan.. I burn.

10. If you are giving an opportunity, take advantage of it.


I hope you have an AMAZING day. ❤

  1. I’ll probably always have a soft spot in my heart for the Spice Girls… Their music definitely brings back some good memories. And I know what you mean about feeling so at peace in the mountains. I’m heading up myself this weekend, and I seriously can’t wait — there’s no better place to relax and do some thinking. And don’t even get me started on the 4:30 AM mornings. A part of me loves them because I feel so much more accomplished, but I wouldn’t mind sleeping in once in a while!

  2. Aww – so happy you get to see and spend time with your friend! And your hair cut is gorgeous!!!
    I adore the Spice girls too, did you catch their performance at the ’12 olympics?
    Hope you have a blast with your friend and AT THE ZOO!!!

  3. So excited for you that you’re friend is coming!! I hope you two have an awesome time together 🙂 Like you, I seriously NEVER cut my hair. Its bad. Its crazy long right now and Id love to hack it off, but I’ll probably wait until soccer season is over. And I’m a zoo lover too! Actually, anything with animals to be honest. It could be a petting zoo and Id be just as thrilled 😉

  4. Your weekend sounds like so much fun, hun! That’s awesome about your friend, too. Joe and I met right before he left for Afghanistan, as well, and kept in touch while he was gone, so that really struck a chord with me 🙂

  5. CUTE-AYE!! I really love your new hair doll, it’s gorgeous, embrace it! I always cut my own hair because it’s short so there is not much damage I can do 😉 Where are you taking your friend this weekend?! You should travel down to the biltmore area and check out True Foods, I seriously thinking you’ll love it.

    Here, check out the menu (because this is how bad I want you to go! haha):

    ❤ you!

  6. So excited that you get to see your friend! I bet you guys are really close if you were able to keep up a correspondence. You’re going to have SUCH a great time!

    And love, love the instrumental version of A Thousand Years! Those guys are so talented and it almost seems like the instruments are actually singing. So crazy.

    AND YES TO ZAC EFRON. Definitely my celebrity crush and probably why I was so attracted to Kyle at first hahaha. They look so similar!

  7. Love this post!! When do I like to do when my friends visit? Take them to Central Park, down to the Hudson River, to my fav yoga studio, out on the town… etc!! You will have so, so much fun with your friend this weekend for you. And no I do not like getting my haircut!! I actually hate it and have a major fear of it hahaha which is why my hair is long and I rarely cut it 😉 and the zoo is allll right, my favorite animal is either a piglet/koala bear/panda 😉 xo!

  8. Your hair do is so cute! I always hate that freshly cute hair but after the first couple of days I love it again!
    Huge Zac Efron fan too! Why can’t we all just find our own zac efrons 😦 wahhh

  9. You hair looks super! Short hair and hot weather are a combo, Caribbean it’s pretty hot too, I know the feeling! Regarding Zac Efron… well he is hot, there is not denying it 😉
