Since my birthday is on September 27th, my family always decides to give me birthday money early so I can spend it on
shopping sprees school things. So I've been getting ready to go back to the Magic City (only 3 more days!!), and I also picked up a few things I've been wanting for a while.
|I got it in navy blue! Please ignore the awful BlackBerry photography.|
I finally ordered that L.L. Bean boat and tote--extra large--when they said extra large, they weren't kiddin'. I almost fell out when I saw how big it was and almost sent it back, but my mom convinced me to keep it for an overnight bag and then order a smaller one for class.

The piece de resistance, however, was the trifecta of Lilly Pulitzer goods I purchased from The Preppy Princess. I'm so excited for my new Lilly planner (to make homework seem a little more fun), travel mug (to make 8am classes seem a little more fun), and umbrella (to make the constant Birmingham drizzle seem a little more fun--and to pair with my bubble gum pink puff sleeved trench!), all in Checking In.

I also finally ordered the Southern Proper elephant headband I've been wanting for almost a year--it'll pull double duty as an Alabama accessory and also the perfect complement to that GOP ballot.
Then I settled down for that glorious purchase I make at the beginning of every semester--textbooks. Hello, Amazon!
Well, those are the high points of my shopping other than a few not so glorious trips to Walmart for supplies.
I'd also like to mention the wonderful trip I took to Tallahassee, Florida this past weekend to see my Grammy!! She is always a gracious hostess, and my mom and I had a blast with her and also my cousin, Sheila!
When I get everything in, I shall post pictures of the rest of the goods!
Can't wait to be back at school with all of my friends! It's been far too long without them! :)
