Hi guys and happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. Going to be doing a weekend recap today and share some of the fun things I did over the weekend so let’s get started!
I had class from 9:30-10:20 then 10:20-11:30! I was hoping that classes would get cancelled because of the snow, but none of mine did. 🙁 All classes were cancelled after 2:30, figures right?!
After class, I got lunch with my friend Sydney and her boyfriend Zach. It was snowing so hard on our walk back.

I took a nice nap after, blogged, talked to my mom, and just relaxed until dinner with my friends. After dinner, my friends and I just chilled in my room, listened to music, and my roomie and I split a pint of Ben&Jerry’s.
I planned on just having a chill night in, but my friends in a different dorm texted me inviting me over and to go out to a party at 10. My friend Shannon and I decided to be spontaneous and go out because that’s what life’s all about-not always having a plan and being open to last minute things. I’m so glad we did too, it was a fun night!

We stayed out until around 12:30, came back, and caught up with some other friends about our night. I went to bed around 1:30, and slept in the next morning which was amazing.
I woke up around 11:30, made myself some food, then FaceTimed my best friend Maria who goes to a different college. I’m visiting her this weekend and I am so, so excited. Love her to pieces and she really is like a sister to me!
After FaceTiming Maria, I went to the gym with my friend Jen. I came back, did some homework, then got dinner! My friends and I went to a party that night so we all got ready, showered, and did hair/makeup together.

There used to be a time where I wouldn’t let myself wear certain things. I didn’t like tight clothes because I thought I wasn’t “skinny” enough or had the right body type. I didn’t feel confident in outfits like the one I was wearing Saturday night. I would’ve felt extremely insecure and self-conscious. But I have come to the point where I realize that I don’t have to have the perfect body and can wear whatever the heck I want. No one has the perfect body, not a single individual out there. You can wear crop tops even if your stomach isn’t completely and totally flat with a six-pack, you can wear a tight dress and skinny jeans- you can wear WHATEVER you want: you do not need to have what you deem to be the “perfect” and “tiny” body to wear something. Confidence comes from within: and you should feel confident in whatever you wear. You will look beautiful, and you have to believe that: you have to tell yourself that you are beautiful. You don’t need anyone else’s approval but your own.

After nights out, I love sleeping in. I think it’s good to let yourself rest and get out of the routine you usually have for the week. I slept in, showered, and my brother came and took me to lunch. We got Panera Bread. It was so good seeing him and I was so happy he drove out to see me. After Panera, we got coffee and he helped me bring some stuff back into my dorm (waters, fruit, etc). I finished up some homework, napped, and got dinner with my friends. We watched a bit of the game at dinner, then I came back and finished my homework. I also FaceTimed my mom and caught up with her which is always awesome. Love her to pieces.
Sunday’s are usually a very low-key, relaxing day for me, which I think is very important to have in life. You don’t need top be going at all times, it is crucial to let yourself do absolutely nothing sometimes- let yourself rest, we all need it! And you should NEVER feel guilty for giving yourself some R&R. 🙂
Now tell me,
Favorite Ben&Jerry’s flavor?
What was the highlight of your weekend?
