Diplo_Dash_5k_

Thursday: Today after work to of my friends and I ran yet another 5K race. Aimee (right) had messed up her foot during a marathon recently so she and I just walked. It brought me back to the days where I only walked races. It was amazing to see just how fast I used to be as I couldn’t get anywhere near my best walking time.

Friday: Today was my day off, so Alex and I bought some art supplies and spent the day outside.

My Week in Review: May 27 – June 2

A_little_something_to_get_me_even_more_excited_about_my_impending_birthday__

Monday: Over the weekend I went with Alex to his parents’ house about two hours away from where we live. His parents were sweet enough to get me this 21 charm for my Pandora bracelet in honor of my impending birthday. They’ve given me all my charms so far and I’m really looking forward to them slowly filling up my bracelet over the years.

Had_to_say_goodbye_to_Alex_s_family_s_foreign_exchange_student_Natalie_yesterday._I_ll_miss_that_beautiful_girl_

Tuesday: I had gone back home from Alex’s parents’ house on Monday night just to drive back the next day. Alex gave a speech at his old high school and he completely forgot about it until the day of. I decided to drive back to see him speak as well as to hang out with Natalie their foreign exchange student from the Ukraine. She went home this past Wednesday and I’m definitely going to miss her.

Wednesday: I’ve really been having a fantastic time creating new outfits and exploring my own closet. It’s easy for things to get lost or swept to the side, so it’s fun to go on an adventure and see what kind of out fit I can put together.

The_iPads_we_won_are_finally_here__

Thursday: Alex and I with two other friends entered a case study competition a few months ago. After a lot of work on Alex and my part to get the projects done and to make the videos, we ended up winning! Each one of us got our own iPad and they FINALLY came today!

Yes_or_no_

Thursday: Needless to say I went right out and bought myself a wonderful iPad case that I completely love. Alex and I spent the evening playing with our iPads and making them perfect.OOTD___ (1)

Saturday: Alex and I went to garage sales today and then to an antique store in Flint. It was such an amazing place and I ended up finding a postcard from 1930. I just love old postcards with writing on them. It’s fun to imagine the person who wrote it and what life was like back then.

Sunday: Tardis never sleeps in his carrier but today he wouldn’t get out of it! It was really hot here so he must have liked the feeling of the cold plastic.

My Week in Review: May 6 – May 12

I’ve decided that, in the absence of the 365 photo project, I want to start these “My Week in Review” posts to keep you up to date on my weekly activities. I’m an Instagram junkie (find me @steggycornelius), so it’s the best place to go to find images of my week. So I’ve selected a few of the photos from last week to tell you about what happened.

OOTD (3)

Monday: Today was an average day of school and work. Most week days I find myself in business attire, which can get boring so I try and spice it up with planning cute outfits in advance.

Dinner_at_a_park

Tuesday: After a boring day of work inside I decided to get Panera and go to a local park for dinner. It was such a beautiful evening and I even got to write a bit in my journal.

Another_fun_disc_golf_outing

Tuesday: Not long after I finished my dinner Alex called me asking if I wanted to go play disc golf. Although we didn’t get to play much disc golf, we did get to see this beautiful site on the lake.

China_Glaze_s_Re-fresh_Mint

Thursday: I’ve become a nail polish addict! Today I wore China Glaze’s Re-Fresh Mint.

OOTD_for_my_art_showcase_

Friday: This was the outfit I wore to the reception for the student showcase. I took a lot of time and effort planning out what I wanted to wear because I was very proud and excited to have one of my photographs on display!

Friday: Alex and I at the art gallery standing next to my photo. I love my “man in the bowtie” (which is also the name of the photo!). I vlogged on Friday which you can watch here.

Sunday: I received an email from a bride who ordered ten of these bracelets from Alex and my etsy shop for her wedding. I thought I would never hear back from her, but she sent me a series of wedding photos with my bracelets in them! It was such an amazing thing to see something I made on a stranger during such an important event in a woman’s life.

Check back next week Monday for another “My Week in Review” post to see what I’ve been up to!

365 Days of Photos: Day 118 (April 28, 2013)

I FINALLY opened another envelop that Alex gave me for Christmas. Inside this date envelope was a dinner for two. Ironically enough we had just gotten home from going to Outback Steakhouse with our two sets of parents. They met for the first time!
