Spring Break Wishlist

With March around the corner and spring weather making an appearance, all I can think about is the beach! Luckily for me I will be there in 3 short weeks! While I might be ready for fun in the sun, my wardrobe certainly is not. So I have compiled my favorite spring-break must-haves!

Bathing Suits

Obviously I love the palm print and am so excited it is sticking around for another year! This time I am definitely getting in on the trend!

Touchdown Time

Do y’all know what time it is? The best season of them all: football! Some might disagree with me, especially here in Kentucky, but to me football is the best sport to watch and be a part of. I love everything about it and it’s arrival signifies the real start of fall (even if its still 85 degrees.) There’s many reasons to love football season here in the bluegrass but I wanted to let you guys know why its truly a special time of year!

Becoming Country

Every Saturday something magical happens: every sorority girl becomes a down home country chick. No matter where your from whether that be Paducah, Cincinnati or San Francisco you better bet you’ve jumped on the bandwagon and have become bonafide southern woman. I love throwing my cowboy boots (the only time I get to wear them besides country concerts) on and jamming to some of country’s finest all while tailgating in my fine blue dress.

 A Sea of Blue

I came to college with ZERO, I mean zip, zilch, nada, blue dresses. I didn’t know I would need them. Was I in for a surprise. My collection has now reached 12 blue or blue and white dresses. I need one for every home game! Plus I have trained my eyes to instantly find blue dresses in any store and then make a beeline right for them. I worry that my closet will be like 70% blue dresses and 30% everything else even when I’m out of college. But for now I love rocking my blue dresses and posing with the rest of my friends and sisters in theirs.

Wildcat Wake-up

A few special games of the football season are what we call “morning games.” This means that us girls have to wake up at the crack of dawn to ready ourselves for the coming festivities. You may ask “How do you get up at 8 am on the weekend when you can’t even make it to you 11 am classes?” Wildcat Wake-up. In the sorority house the older, more seasoned girls would run up and down the hallways, banging on doors and blasting music. Nothing makes you pop out of bed more that the fear of someone coming in, jumping on your bed, and screaming GO CATS in your face. My roommates and I have lovingly kept the tradition alive in our own house.

Tailgating

Yes, this is an obvious reason but nonetheless must be included! Nothing gives you the feels more than your boots sinking in the beer soaked ground and the hot sun beating down on you perfectly curled head. As torturous as it sounds, you know you love it and you’re a Saturday regular at all of the fraternity tailgates. Plus who doesn’t love showing all the boys up at corn hole?

Game Time

Being a UK student, it is immensely easier to go to a football game than to a basketball game. Although they both have $5 student tickets, basketball has a lottery you must win to get those tickets. It’s an annoying and tedious process. Football rarely sells out (perks of having an average team) and you can usually decide if you want to go at the last minute.

Rainy Day Essentials

rainy

Its a rainy, mucky, all-around gross day here in Kentucky. That means skipping class and staying in all day. I know I am a horrible student! But it’s just one of those days when you want to cozy up with a good book or a movie! Reflecting on that thought, I decided to do a mini round-up of some rainy day essentials!

  1. A good book– I am a reading fanatic and lately I have been tearing through some books. My most recent book I have finished is:
    1. A Painted House by John Grisham– this book is from the perspective of a 7 year old boy in rural Arkansas. Trust me I was thinking the same thing you are…”what do I have in common with a small farm boy?” But to my surprise the book was captivating! So many interesting things happen I couldn’t put the book down. Now I have become a avid John Grisham fan and plan on reading more of his books!
  2. A good movie– If reading isn’t for you or maybe if you don’t feel like putting in the mental effort then putting on a good movie while the rain pitter-patters on the roof is the perfect rainy day pastime.
  3. A cozy sweatshirt– I love throwing on an oversized sweatshirt when it is gray and wet outside! My favorite is my fleece Patagonia!
  4. Rain boots– If I have to go out and brave the unending wetness then I need my rain boots. Currently I have my sights set on a beautiful pair of Hunter’s. It’s so rainy here that I believe it is time for an investment and I have heard nothing but fabulous things about them!
  5. Coffee or hot tea– I am a tea kind of gal. Maybe coffee will grow on me but for now I stick strictly to tea. I recently acquired a tea tumbler that has a built in tea cage for loose tea leaves. I love it! Find it here.
