Hey y'all!! I hope you are having an absolutely fabulous week so far. I am still SWEATING y'all. I am dying for some low 80's at least but I don't think Florida is having it. I am dying to cozy up in some chunky sweaters but that just isn't going to happen. Oh well!

Since it is still so hot, I love a cold lemonade. I love all things lemonade. The watermelon lemonade from Chick-fil-a is the best thing ever. My sister works at one and gets free food so I sometimes convince her to bring me one! :) I love this bright orange tank! It is so flowy and comfortable. The material is super cool which is awesome for this heat. 

Have a great day y'all!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you are ready for a great week. I know I sure am ready for things to return back to normal. The hurricane, a stomach bug, and school being cancelled has made this past week a little crazy and I am ready to get settled back into a routine. I am a routine person, if you couldn't already tell.

How perfect is this top for summer? The best part is that I feel it could also be perfect for Fall too. Throw on a denim jacket or pair with jeans and wedges and it can be easily converted to a Fall outfit too. I am sad to say I think the season for these blue and white striped shoes is quickly coming to an end. I get slightly attached to shoes, and these were a FAV this year. :)

I hope y'all have a great start to your week. Don't forget to be a bucket filler and love like Jesus!

Happy Friday everyone! I am super excited to do one of these posts again because I have sooooo much to share and tell y'all about! I just finished my first month of college and it is already kicking my butt. Math in particular has always been hard for me, but geesh, college level math just doesn't like me. Thankfully, I only have two semesters of math and then I am DONE forever.

I hope all of you who also live in Florida (or anywhere) are doing okay and are safe and well after hurricane Irma made an unwelcome visit. My family is safe and we had minimal damage to our home and yard which was a huge blessing. Please keep me updated on how y'all are doing and how I can pray for you.

My Favorite Things This Week:



I recently got one of these silver bangles from this company and it is stunning! They are super inexpensive which is really nice but still high quality. They are inspired by Disney quotes which is right up my alley. I would love these stacked too! They have gold, rose gold, and silver!

I got this new gem a few weeks ago for school and I am obsessed with it! It is a super thin, lightweight, slick laptop but can also be turned into a tablet by detaching the screen. It comes with a super cool pen for it and still has a USB port, headphone jack, and SD card reader. You can read more about it online but basically I feel like the coolest student ever when I am sitting in class using it as a laptop and then just take off the screen and pen to start taking notes. IT'S SO FREAKIN COOL!!! I love technology!


My Favorite Fashion Finds This Week:

Because Florida has NO fall, I live out my fall fashion dreams through other bloggers who live somewhere cooler. I love these chunky sweaters I am seeing all over blogs and Pinterest. I will dream about wearing one.. maybe January will be here before we know it??
Here are some of my favorite chunky sweaters:



These are the shoes I raved about on my Instagram story yesterday! They are the most amazing mules especially for only like 25$!! I don't see them online yet but go to a Target store and you should find them! You need them for FALL Y'ALL!!!

Well I hope y'all enjoyed and have a great weekend! I will talk to you again soon!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope y'all had a great weekend! I watched Alabama kick butt and then I kicked Math's butt.. kill me now! I have an exam on Tuesday afternoon so hopefully it will go well. I always find it encouraging to remind myself why I am studying so hard and working towards a future by coming up with great ideas for my future classroom, and saving several cute little kid books I find at used book stores. If you couldn't already guess, I am an Elementary Education major.

That is and has been my dream job since I was about 8 years old. I can't wait to educate little minds and you can read my post here about the reasons I want to be a teacher. 

However, I have always been a dreamer and have several other careers that I might just switch too when I am 50 years old or something ;) If I weren't going to be a teacher, here are the careers I would want!!

Dolphin Trainer // Oh my word y'all I have had an obsession with dolphins ever since I went to SeaWorld for the first time. I went to SeaWorld camp two summers in elementary school and was amazed at seeing the behind the scenes of the dolphin trainers. I also spent my 16th birthday swimming with dolphins at Discovery Cove and could totally see myself having a job where I had a uniform that was a wetsuit and dolphins as my coworkers. 

Vintage Hair Salon Owner // Anyone who knows me or has read my blog for a while knows my favorite movie is Steel Magnolias and I have always wanted to open my own hair salon that is vintage and girly like the salon in that movie. All the hair stylists would wear cute aprons and there could be a cute old pink fridge where clients could find lemonade. I so see it :)

Nail Polish Name Creator // Is anyone obsessed with seeing what they name certain nail polish colors? I could sooooo come up with adorable names for different colors and would have oh so much fun doing it!

Children's Book Author // This is probably the most realistic one on here because my love for children's books is a little out of control. I have a few ideas in my head and maybe one day you will see a picture book by Juliana Grace at Barnes and Noble!

First Lady // There is nothing I can really do to achieve this job but I think I would make a great First Lady. I would totally try to be Laura Bush; a classy and graceful woman with a passion for the coming generations. I would also pick out the most amazing china pattern for the White House and have the most amazing wardrobe. I clearly would take the responsibility very seriously.

Disney World Travel Agent // It's no secret I love Disney World and I feel that I have been so many times at different seasons and under certain circumstances that I could plan some great vacations for families there. Regardless, I will always love planning my own trips there!

What are some of your own dream jobs? Realistic or not, I would love to hear them!

Talk to you soon!

Happy Monday everyone! Last week I was a little MIA but that is because it was my first week of college classes! I have loved this first week and although I was exhausted, I am in love with my professors, classes, and routine now that classes have started up again. I am happy to be back at it with blogging now that I am on a schedule. Today I am sharing a video showing my favorite cupcake recipe! I found cute apple cupcake liners which were so cute for back to school. Who say's you can't be festive and excited for back to school, even when in college :) Enjoy!

You can find the recipe here!



I hope y'all enjoyed! Have a great start to your week! I will talk to you on Wednesday!

Hey y'all, happy Friday. I will be honest this post was harder to start because to be honest I am just sad. I rarely let a lot of things effect me but recently several recent events have been weighing down on me and I am just sad. I felt like that is why it is important that I continue this blog and continue to find the happy and the good in the midst of the tragedies and evil in this sinful world. If you don't read anymore of this post, I hope you read this: Pray. There is power in prayer and God hears our cries. 

I do have several favorites from this past week to share with y'all that I am very excited to tell y'all about them! You will clearly be able to tell I have taken relaxing my last week of summer VERY seriously! Let's get started.

My Favorite Things This Week:

Y'all may or may not know how much I love listening to a sermon from Andy Stanleys church Northpoint every now and then but this speaker was incredible and had amazing visuals. Because of such a rough week, I found this very encouraging. There are still good people out there doing good things for the Lord and for the help of others. This is one man's life story about his history with photography and graphic design and how he is using it to change the world. You need to watch this. It isn't too long and shows that God has a plan for you even when you say you "can't".


Madame Secretary Season 3 on Netflix!!
My sister and I watched the first two seasons of this show on Netflix a while back but forgot to watch it when the third season came on live tv so we decided to wait until it came on Netflix and now it is there! We have decided to rewatch the show from the beginning but I am so excited to get to watching that third season. This show is bomb y'all!


PopSocket
Okay you guys. I am obsessed with this stupid thing. Like I really don't remember how I ever functioned without it honestly. My sister got the cutest Ivory Ella one too. There are a ton to match different phone cases and make life so much easier :)


Anne With an E on Netflix
My mom and I are working our way through Anne With an E on Netflix which is based off the Anne of Greengables movies which are our FAVS! This is just the sweetest show. The first episode was almost the length of a movie, but each additional episode after that is about 45 minutes long. I can't wait to finish it!


Jim Brickman Soothe Sleep Music
I have had a hard time sleeping the past couple of nights and have loved using the Amazon Music app to listen to this sound track by Jim Brickman. I used to fall asleep to a show on TV but found that it kept me up and I wasn't sleeping well and would always be tired the next day. Reading a good book and then turning on this music as I fall asleep is a much better option.


Everything Ree Drumond / The Pioneer Woman

Okay y'all I am obsessed with this lady. Everything about her makes me happy. Her show Pioneer Woman on the Food Network has been a favorite for a while because she shares such simple yet scrumptious looking recipes and always gives a look into her life on the farm with her sweet husband and kids... and of course her basset hounds (which are the real reason I watch the show.. jk.. but really). Ree's blog is also a HUGE favorite of mine. She has some really elaborate blog posts along with some simple one picture snippet of her life and I just love everything about it. I also may or may not have just gotten one of her children's books in the mail. It's an investment in my future classroom okay?? Don't judge!! ;)  


Favorite Moments This Past Week:

Bowling with Sister and Friends
It is always a blast hanging out with my two bffs!


Visiting my Sister at her Work!

SHE IS SO CUTE! BTW CHICK-FIL-A WATERMELON LEMONADE IS AMAZING!


Fashion Finds This Week:

I always love saving my "fun money" for a couple weeks or so to add a new adition to my Disney Pandora bracelet. This Cinderella Dress Charm is BEAUTIFUL!


Y'all I have LOVED this shirt from ROMWE. It is super cheap and I have gotten so many compliments on it! You need it too girl!


Y'all know I have loved the two different bow slides I have picked up from Target for only around 25$ and am SO happy they have a new variety of them too. These are a different brand from the other ones but look like they would be just as comfortable. SOMEONE GIVE ME A REASON NOT TO BUY THESE!

That is all for today y'all! I have enjoyed chatting with you, like always. Thank you so much for sweet encouraging emails. The fact that this little blog has brought strangers from around the world is crazy and I thank God every day for you. I will talk to again on Monday. Enjoy your weekend. Don't forget to be a bucket filler!

Dear High School Freshman Juliana,

This is college freshman Juliana writing you. Yes that means that you actually made it through high school. You didn't fail math. You came close a few times, but you graduated. You made it to the right classrooms on the first day, well most of them. I would say that in four years you won't walk in and sit down in the wrong class, but that would be a lie. Just roll with it girl. Don't worry about it, you still graduated.
Often times, the school work seemed challenging and you may not know exactly what you want to do with your life just yet but that's okay. Study hard, and give it you're all. No one else you're age really knows what they are going to do with their life either. Can I tell you something? Don't worry. That won't make it any better, and God has you. By the end of you're senior year, you will be wishing you pushed a little harder through the academics because you are going to be very passionate about learning and about a career. You're going to have big dreams and a great plan.
I'll give it to you girl, high school is going to be hard. It will possibly be the hardest and feel like the longest four years of your whole life. You are going to struggle with some health problems that will make you feel lonely. Can I tell you what will help with that though, since I have been through it? Don't worry. That won't make it any better, and God has you. 
You're also going to make new friends, and loose friends. This is normal. It is going to seem like everyone else has more friends than you but can I tell you something? They don't. Can I tell you something else? Don't worry. That won't make it any better, and God has you.
This year, you're going to discover who you're true friends are and you're going to rely on God and you're awesome family more than you have ever had to before. The physical, mental, and spiritual problems you faced to get you to that point will be difficult, but can I tell you something? Don't worry. That won't make it any better, and God has you. 
Juliana, high school is hard, but high school is short. When you graduate you are going to be immersed into an entire new world that is adulthood. It is tricky but amazing. You are going to see you're true life long friends grow along side of you as well as meet some amazing new people. It will be scary and nerve wracking, but it is going to be great. Trust me.
You're going to be so eager to go to school (I know it sounds crazy!), and you're going to be excited for your career one day. 
Enjoy being a teenager. Can I tell you something? Don't worry. It won't make it any better, and God has you. God has you're health, you're future, you're friends, you're plans, you're academics, and you're whole life in the palm of his hand. Pray hard and stop worrying. You're going to turn out okay. :)

xoxo,
Juliana Grace
