August Monthly Recap!

AugustMonthlyRecap (1)

Hello there friends! Another month flew by… surprise! And this is the first monthly recap that will be accompanied by a monthly newsletter that goes straight to your inbox {sign up in the little bar right down below!}. TYPICALLY, this post will go live early in the morning on the first of the month, but the┬ájunior year has me running around like a crazy person and therefore, this one is a little bit late. I promise I’ll do better next time! So, if you want to see what we were up this month and hear a little bit more about the month than keep on reading and be sure to check our our newsletter because there are a lot of fun extras!

Life Lately

G: HI HI. August is one of my favorite months {for obvious reasons}! My birthday is smack dab in the middle of the month followed by a full storm ahead on Back to School season which means a new planner and seeing my friends again in the start of a new school year. It was kind of a crazy month especially since I basically purged the last 20 years of my life out of my room at home and started helping my mom pick out new wall paint color and a new bedspread. LOL I’M GROWING UP.

I LOVE LIVING IN MY APT. Seriously y’all, I will never go back. I’m super excited to get all my other decorations up so that I can show you my room in a vlog that I had promised. Don’t worry, I did not forget! Junior year has already been so great and it’s only been two weeks of classes. I’m super pumped about the content that was posted in August and that will come in September! Aside from missing Houston and beachy Florida vibes, I’m ready to power on in this new school year! Catch you in October… xoxo, G

H: HEY Y’ALL I’M BACK. Sorry I’ve been super MIA lately; I returned back to the good ol’ USofA in early August and then had about two weeks at home before I headed back to school! If you’re curious about my travels to London and other parts of Europe, the first two posts of my “Travel with Hannah” series are on the blog right now (links above)! Even though I loved living in London for 6 weeks, there was definitely some parts of America I missed (namely, driving my car and good breakfast cereal!).

I’ve definitely been busy these past two weeks between decorating my dorm room and navigating a full schedule of chemical engineering classes! However, I love being back on campus and I can’t wait for our first home football game versus Nevada next week! I’ve worn out all my summer clothes, so I’m excited for the weather to cool down in the coming weeks so I can break out my vests and riding boots! Is it too early to start planning my Halloween costume?? {always, H}

So there you have it! August was definitely jam packed with events, trips, traveling, and the beginning of a new school year. Here’s to a great fall and more blogging! LOVE TO ALL
