A Southern Twenty-Five on Friday!

Happy last Friday of April! I've been waiting for May to roll around for quite some time now because there are a few things I'm looking forward to next month! But... we're not there just yet so let's get to it with the Five on Friday hostesses April, Darci, Natashaand Christina.

First of all, Happy 5th Anniversary to the Kappa Pi chapter of Sigma Kappa!

Is it too soon to start talking about football season? The NFL released 2014 schedules this week and my Seattle Seahawks are coming back to Charlotte! I missed going to their game last year but you can bet I will be there this year... even though it'll mean two football games in one weekend {Clemson plays Syracuse for homecoming the day before}. It's not like haven't done it before but do not expect me to be very productive that following Monday!

I feel like I need to have more things up my sleeve for my new apartment but I only have one project that I'm working on. It's tiny and it involves paint, some hooks, and this board:

I can't wait to see how it turns out but I have to figure out some paint colors first. I also really want to find a way to use this on it but I'm not sure that's going to work out so well.

I might be a little bit obsessed with "Love Runs Out" by OneRepublic.

Monday morning? Listened to it on repeat at the gym. For an hour & 15 minutes.
Monday during the day? Listened to it all day long at work.
Tuesday? Listened to it on repeat as I ran on the treadmill. Usually I need variety, but nope.
... & that pattern continued for the rest of the week.

OneRepublic and I are getting along great lately, first with Counting Stars & now with this song. Love it.

Oh hey, wedding season, haven't seen you in a while! Unless March weddings count? Wedding season this year, for me, is exceptionally short but jam packed. Between now and May 18th, I'll attend two rehearsal dinners {without being a part of either wedding party or a family member 'cause that's how I roll} and three weddings. Weddings, dancing, good friends, partying, delicious food, a million pictures, long weekends, road trips... bring it on, I can't wait!

Happy Friday!


  1. Ah you sound like me with the NFL- cannot wait! (Come on Redskins, this year will be better I just know it...hahaha don't hate don't hate!) I went to an all women's college so I never had a college team fav. Ps I think we are doing the same project with the board ;) Happy weekend!! xoxo

  2. Aww, how fun that you have so many weddings coming up!

  3. It is never too early to talk about football season - especially college football haha! Love wedding season!! Hope you have a great weekend!

  4. Love those anchor hooks from anthropologie! So cute- I'm excited to see what you're planning for that board.

  5. Hahah! Love the pic....that wedding was re-dic! I had too much fun with my buddy Gin that evening! Great post!

  6. Yay! for Clemson football! So glad to have met another Clemson gal :)
