WEEKEND UPDATE.



RECAPS
1 | Instagram for the win. If you haven't heard, Instagram released an update to their app that allows you to edit your photo captions after posting! No more being stuck with silly typos in your captions or having to delete your photo and try and again! Hooray for progress. :)

2 | Movie night. My core group girls all got together Friday night for dinner and a movie. Our movie of choice? Elf. :) Yeah, it's a little early, but we all love Christmas quite a bit. Plus, winter snuck up on Tennessee, so it has been quite chilly out for this time of year and definitely feels more like Christmas.

3 | Game night. Because we just can't get enough of each other, my core group came over Saturday night for games and snacks! We had a cozy fire going in the fireplace and played multiple rounds of the salad bowl game. The night was full of good fellowship and a lot of laughter.

4 | New, new, new. Hello new blog design! Where'd you come from? I've been working with Maiedae over the past few weeks in re-designing my little blog, and it is finally done and oh so beautiful! It is very me. The perfect balance of adventure and class. I am a little bit in love with it. :)

OTHER FINDS
-- You can't be all the things.

-- Frozen yolks? Who knew, right?
-- LOVE these adorable travel journals!
