Finding My Path

Lately, I have been going through I very difficult time. I am sorry I have not had any new blog posts lately.
For four years I have put myself second. I have not once thought about what I really wanted for myself. I put someone else, who let me down, first. I let this person rule my world and everything I ever wanted.
Since this person let me down, I have to focus on what I want. I do not know what I want anymore...but I do know that this will not control me. I will overcome this pain. My life is MY life, and I am the only one who controls what I do with it.
This is the scariest thing I have ever had to do. I was not prepared or ready for this to happen. I lost my best friend and now it is only me. My family means the world to me, and I appreciate them more than they will ever know. I could not see the light at the end of the tunnel without their support and love.
I will overcome this. I will not crumble. I will be strong. I will succeed.

Isn't it funny how one simple picture could start a whole conversation or story?
Take a look at this picture:
This little fella' is called Fillippe...he's the cup. When my family goes to Disney World we are absolutely insane...we go nuts. First of all, we LOVE Disney World. Second of all, we are crazy to begin with...imagine us at the most magical place on earth. Our last day at the Wilderness Lodge (the resort we stay at when we go to Disney World) we got lunch. Kim (my older sister) got a very small drink because she got a kids meal. My family usually takes pictures in the Wilderness Lodge on the last day...Fillippe managed his little way in every picture. Sneaky little lad! This picture is Fillippe saying bon voyage to the Wilderness Lodge and Disney World.

The world says hello! I also say hello.
Today, I FINALLY finished all of my stressful tests for this week! It was wonderful...as soon as I put that pencil down, I ran/skipped out the door and cheered gleefully! Okay, I didn't really do that...however, I did have an extra hop in my step. I had been SO stressed about these tests that the boyfriend decided to take me on a celebratory date! Especially since we haven't gone a date since before I started college...but that's another story. I did not take any outfit pictures of what I wore for our date night...oops.
Question: Isn't college about staying out all night past your high school curfew?
Answer: Nope...Either I have a really boring life or I'm just that great of a kid. No matter what, I always end up at my dorm before 11...sad I know...don't judge me. Seth (boyfriend) and I really focus on our college work more than anything. Good grades are more important than whatever else is going on. We always think about what is best for our future.
I know, I know...we are nerds...really, really big nerds.
I believe that is all for now...over and out/hup 10-4/beam me up scotty...something of that nature...you get the point.

Yes, I am a horrible person...
for not blogging lately!
Well, you guys, I have an exam tomorrow and two exams Wednesday, and I have been studying for these exams almost since my last blog post! I promise I will get back to all of you avid Leah lovers as soon as I finish celebrating being done with all of these exams! Don't fret, my child. I will soon bring you joy with my cunning/clever wit yet again! Pray for my soul during these trying times...I shall succeed!

This would be my very first outfit post...hooray! I will try to continuously do outfit posts, but I cannot make any promises...I am a college student so I do wear t-shirts a lot. I took this picture with my phone, in a mirror, and after classes...so be patient. I typically wear t-shirts and random shorts and flip flops to class. Today, I was feeling kind of blah-ish so I decided to dress cute. Even though no one cares what I am wearing, dressing cute just makes me feel good about myself. So kids, the moral of today is: Dress cute when you are feeling blah-ish.
Jeggings: Target
Shirt: Gap (2 years ago)
Shoes: Target


Back: Kim, me, Kate. Front: Ellie
Mom and Dad: Precious

Last weekend my family went to Callaway Gardens to watch the hot air balloons. Callaway Gardens is not far from where we live so we have gone their since we were little. The balloons were so beautiful! Anything out of the ordinary inspires me, and seeing big balloons float isn't ordinary...just a thought. Look at my pants in the first picture...cute, cargo pants from Target! I spent $21 on them instead of over $200 like SOME people...go me!

Besides the fact that I love Matthew McConaughey, I love this movie, and this quote!

Fall Lovin'

Hello fashion/Leah lovers! I have recently been working on my blog's look. I hope you guys are enjoying this look! If you have any ideas or thoughts leave a comment or shoot me an email!
I should really be writing my English paper for college, but...this is more fun. So I'm going to ramble on.
Random Facts:
1) I love cheese
2) I would choose a good purse over new shoes (blasphemy, I know)
3) My family rocks
4) The word "rocks" reminds me of "socks"
5) I love cool socks
6) I love red nails
7) My eyes are HUGE
8) My eyelashes are naturally really long...I give you permission to hate me
9) I let dogs lick my face for too long
10) I judge people's style...you know you do it too!
Well, that was 10 random facts about me. Now on to more important facts.
Fall Wishlist:
1) Green military coat
2) A great leather bag (oh wait, already found it!)
3) Girly dresses
4) Military boots
5) Stretchy headbands
6) Oxfords
7) Jeggings (I admitted my love for them, so can you)
8) Gold (jewelry, buttons, chains, accent pieces, etc.)
9) Button-downs
10) Scarves
I must go twirl and do girly things.

When jeggings first came into play, I told myself I was NOT going to fall for this trend...until yesterday. I tried some on at Target and fell in love. Not just any kind of love, the kind of love where you end up being a creeper...I'm not a creeper to people, just jeggings. They are the most comfortable things ever! I would wear them everyday...maybe I will. Maybe I bought two pairs of jeggings...don't judge me. I also bought a really cute button up shirt-dress and cargo skinny jeans. I sort of rock at finding things I want at cheaper price than everywhere else...maybe (probably) it is just Target's amazing selection and prices.
