Summer has arrived!

I am officially done with my last two finals…and I think it is safe to say I am officially a Senior in college?I cannot believe it! It feels like I was graduating high school no more than a year ago!

Me and Gramma at my graduation, 3 years ago! Time flies...

and is it just me or did high school seem to last forever? Anyway before I announce the winner of My Summer Essentials Giveaway I am going to let you guys in on my summer plans so you can see what to look forward to! Oh, and share a few pictures, of course!

Sunday night I attended a fundraiser at Neighbor's, a local old fashion general store and ice cream parlor, to support Anna Maria. She is a friend of a friend and passed away Saturday after battling cancer. Please keep her family and friends in your prayers.

Last night at about 11:30 I decided I might want to study for my exams. The whole Osama thing was a bit distracting, as was binge eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

This morning I met my friend Audrey for breakfast to catch up since she is home from school before I had to head back to Orlando for a cramming session before my finals. We met at Ivy Lane on Beach Street in Daytona. Thanks for meeting me if you are reading this Audrey:)

Vanilla Chai Tea! Amazing-ness!

Biggest Bowl of Steel Cut Oats Ever? and yes, I got a to-go box for oatmeal.

Oh, surprise! Look what I ate for lunch. I STILL have more for breakfast tomorrow!

So...while most of my classmates are celebrating at bars...I am watching a movie:) Bringing my cool-ness to the next level!

Many will probably end their night with eggs, potatoes, and pancakes at IHOP in the wee hours. I beat them to it! So I celebrate with tater tots instead of alcohol, don't judge me.
