Peeps Be Graduated!

This title was for my family, specifically my dad, who has been wanting me to use "peeps" in one of my post titles ;)

Good Morning lovely ladies, and Happy Monday! A couple of weeks ago, I decided to have a positive attitude on Monday morning, no matter what, in order to hopefully create a better day for myself. And it worked! So I'm trying that again today, and forcing myself to have a positive attitude again today as well, so that this Monday won't be so bad! I had an incredibly busy weekend and I'm exhausted today, but it was a great weekend, so that makes it worth it :)

Well first of all, on Thursday I painted my nails garnet and applied gold stripes to be festive for FSU graduation!

This was for #WIDN on Instagram - later I added the gold glitter to the thumb nail.

Only worked 'til noon, and then went to a grad reception for my sister, hosted by the College of Human Sciences at FSU
Had a little bit of free time so I read for about half an hour, then helped Meg finish getting ready for graduation!
Our whole family went over to my uncle's house for an at-home Chinese buffet for dinner
Got to the Civic Center for graduation really early, so I had plenty of time to people watch all the crazies...
Sat through hours and hours of thousands of students, in order to see my sister and then my cousin walk the stage!
(Yelled at and almost got in a fight with a butt-head girl and her witchy mother who wouldn't sit down in front of me, approximately 3 seconds before they called Meg's name...Why do people have to be so rude?!)
Welcomed two more college graduates into the family :)

Woke up at an ungodly hour for a Saturday morning, and set out on a mini road trip to Jax with my Mama & my Aunt
Went shopping for a few hours at the St. John's Town Center, and had lunch at Bahama Breeze
Drove over to the Avenue's Mall for a few hours, and finally found Mama's mother-of-the-bride dress for Meg's wedding
Came back to Tally, had Chick-fil-A for dinner and then went over to Jeff's house
Watched a few re-runs of How I Met Your Mother and just relaxed a bit

Went to church and Sunday school with my family, and then had brunch at Backwoods Bistro
Met Jeff at his house, got clothes changed and the car packed, and we hit the road for St. George Island
Drove around and checked out the outside of a house we're trying to rent as our wedding location, and it looks great!
Spent a couple hours on the beach, but the weather was crazy! We did collect a TON of shells though for wedding stuff :)
It was super, super windy and cloudy, so we packed up pretty early, and had dinner at Beef's on our way home
Rented "Silver Linings Playbook" from RedBox, and it really was a great movie!

My omelet was green pepper, onion, spinach & a tiny bit of feta. Yum! And that's a fried grit cake - but I only ate about half.
Another busy weekend full of all sorts of things that make me happy: family time, fun with my fiance, yummy food and more. I truly am a blessed girl, and I love great weekends like this! (No matter how tired I feel come Monday morning...) This upcoming week is also pretty jam-packed with stuff, so hopefully I can keep myself normal and under control with everything we have going on! And tomorrow is Jeff's birthday, so that will be fun! And Thursday I'm having lunch with my fellow Tally girl, Angie, for our very first blate! So of course we're both looking forward to that :) Lots of fun stuff ahead this week, and I can't wait!

I hope y'all had good weekends too, of course! Or that you at least got to rest and relax a little bit. Also, don't forget tomorrow Hallie and I are kicking off the spiced up version our link-up, From Firsts to Lasts, so make sure you write your own post, and come link up with us! (You can read all about it in my post from last week, HERE. It's gonna be fun!) Remember to try to be positive today, and see if you can improve your Monday just be improving your outlook and attitude! Happy Monday!

Linking up today with Covered in Grace, Glitter & Gloss, Sami's Shenanigans & Synfully Delicious.

That at-home Chinese buffet was a great idea! Nice of your uncle. :)

Looks like a good weekend! Ours was the perfect mix of fun AND relaxing, just the way I like it :) And I'm so excited for you to go on a blate- yay!!

Totally have that purple shirt that you're wearing in that last picture. I have it in gray too. Old Navy for the win!
