Thursday Thoughts: Short Week Edition

Hello, hello! Apologies for my longer-than-expected blog break this past week. You might remember that last week I flew up to New York for Memorial Day Weekend to celebrate my cousin’s wedding and squeeze in a long overdue visit with my college bestie! I didn’t take as many pictures as I planned (I was pretty unplugged for most of the weekend), but here’s my handsome date and I!

While it’s been a short work week, I’m still recovering from the weekend of fun (aka no sleep). Not to mention, when I got home I had some tough economics homework to tackle and am taking care of my poor pup who had a terrible hotspot develop over the weekend thanks to springtime allergies. I can’t wait to get myself into PJs STAT after work tonight! Who’s with me?!

Let’s have a quick catch up with some Thursday thoughts.

if being in my pjs by 7

  • 72 new emojis are being released this month! You can check out the full list here, but what’s most important to know is that we’re getting emojis for face palm, fingers crossed, and BACON!
  • I’m not a big Star Wars fan (I know the characters but haven’t seen any of the movies entirely except the new one), but these pun-filled Chewbacca, Vader, and Stormtrooper drawings are hysterical!
  • My mom and I are doing our 3rd annual Europe trip later this year and finally selected our destination! I’m in the process of finalizing the shell of the itinerary, so we should be booking flights in the next week or two! I’ll be sharing more details on it soon!
  • There are so many “food holidays” this month and you better believe I’m going to celebrate! Get ready for sugar overload, because tomorrow’s National Donut Day!

How’s your short week going? Anyone else ready for the weekend?!

    I completely forgot tomorrow is National Donut Day! if my sources are correct, Dunkin’ Donuts is giving away free donuts with a purchase of any size drink! I will definitely be making my way there tomorrow.

    • June 5, 2016 / 5:38 PM

      Yes! Which donut did you go for? It’s definitely a day that must be celebrated :)

        I went for a strawberry sprinkle donut from Dunkin! It was soooo good! Definitely my new favorite from there.

    That picture of you two is very sweet and I love bacon!!!

    • June 5, 2016 / 5:38 PM

      Thanks, Heather! We don’t get dressed up/super fancy too often so it was nice! I also love bacon – I just had some this morning!

    Ha ha! You and I are on the same FB groups apparently. I always like to comment on the one right above me and that was you both times. Have a great day! xo

    • June 5, 2016 / 5:39 PM

      That’s too funny, I run into that quite a bit with other bloggers as well :)

    Bacon and face palm?! How perfect! Who would of thought the release of emoji’s would give the world such a small piece of happiness. Annual trips to Europe? Yes please!! So excited to see and hear about where y’all choose. Unplugged weekends are relaxing! I worked everyday this weekend and get to work his weekend too, so I’m looking forward to having the day off on Sunday!

    • June 5, 2016 / 5:41 PM

      Right?! It’s the little things in life :) haha. I’m so excited to share more about our trip too! It seems so far away still but I know it’ll be here before I know it! Hope you’re enjoying your day off!

    • June 5, 2016 / 5:39 PM

      Yes! It’s become an annual tradition, I love it! Which emoji are you most excited for?

    Can’t wait to see where you go in Europe! Will there be a post about that?? Also you look SO beautiful! xo

    • June 5, 2016 / 5:42 PM

      Thank you so much! There will absolutely be a post on it, and of course, lots of posts following the trip. It’s my favorite stuff to blog about!

  6. June 2, 2016 / 1:25 PM

    oh my gosh so many emojis! i can’t keep up with them all. i’m excited for the fingers crossed one. and yay europe! how exciting.

    • June 5, 2016 / 5:42 PM

      Same! I feel like I always use the same like 10 max. Maybe I should start branching out a bit more, haha.

  7. June 2, 2016 / 1:47 PM

    I am so jealous that you are going to Europe again! I’m hoping to go next year. I love the face palm emoji. Can’t wait to see the rest!!!

    • June 5, 2016 / 5:42 PM

      I’m SO excited about it, Mistle! Where are you thinking you’ll go next year?

  8. June 2, 2016 / 1:54 PM

    Pajamas before 7 is totally allowed!! Yea for your Europe trip!!

    • June 5, 2016 / 5:40 PM

      Nothing beats PJ time at the end of the day :)

  9. June 2, 2016 / 7:44 PM

    I totally get in my PJ’s way before 7 pm most nights. Can’t wait to hear where you chose for your Europe trip. Beautiful picture!

    • June 5, 2016 / 5:39 PM

      Thank you! Early PJs is the best! I always go for it when I can, and I can’t wait to share more about the trip!

  10. June 2, 2016 / 7:56 PM

    I have wanted to do nothing but crawl into bed as soon as I got home all week! I am in full support of being in PJs by 7!

    • June 5, 2016 / 5:43 PM

      That’s exactly how I’ve been feeling lately – especially with so many things going on! It was SO nice to finally be able to sleep in and not be woken by an alarm clock this morning!

  11. June 2, 2016 / 10:49 PM

    New emojis!!!! So exciting!!!! Glad you had a good weekend!!! Also, I change into my pj’s the moment I get home, and I can tell when my husband gets home from work by hearing him exclaim, “No pants!!!” as soon as he walks in the door, lol.

    • June 5, 2016 / 5:44 PM

      Yes!! Which ones are you most excited for? That’s SO funny about your hubby. I don’t shout anything out, but have the same mindset as soon as I get in, haha.

  12. June 3, 2016 / 12:29 AM

    I’m pretty excited about the new emojis, not going to lie! Looks like you had a wonderful time at the wedding :)

    xoxo, Jenny

    • June 5, 2016 / 5:45 PM

      Same! Which ones are you most excited for? The wedding was so much fun! Can’t believe it’s over already. It went so fast it almost feels like it didn’t happen!

  13. June 3, 2016 / 2:35 PM

    Hooray for your annual Europe trip! I can’t wait to hear about the destinations you chose! And you look so pretty for your cousin’s wedding!

    • June 5, 2016 / 5:45 PM

      Thank you, Ashley! I’m so excited to start planning the details of this next trip. It’s going to be another fast-paced one :)

  14. June 5, 2016 / 2:28 PM

    I can’t believe you’re already planning your next Eurotrip! You and Ted are a gorgeous couple and I’m so happy you both were able to be there for the wedding<3 And thanks for holding up my dress while I was trying to walk around my house!!

    • June 5, 2016 / 5:46 PM

      Thank you! We had a blast at the wedding, so happy we were able to celebrate the day with you :) And I’ve been bit by the travel bug ever since London, so now I just want to go to all the places!
