2. My birthday is next month!

3. I will finish up another quarter of grad school! :) Im looking forward to my classes in the fall.

4. August is one month closer to fall. (football, cooler weather, and of course decorating)

5. I have a lot of craft ideas that I can't wait to start working on! :) (Pinterest is the coolest website. Check it out when you have a few will need it)

6. My phone finally went ka-put. I sucked it up and went ahead and got a new phone. I'm now up to date with the I-Phone 4. :)
