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.

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.

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!

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)

Friday: I usually don’t work on Fridays, but this week I had to make up for not working Memorial Day. Silly me forgot that Friday is casual dress day. Oh well! I really enjoyed this outfit!

Alex and I drove to his parent’s house to celebrate their Ukraine foreign exchange student’s 17th birthday. It was great to be able to see her have so much fun and enjoy a very American birthday party at a local bowling alley. I vlogged during the day which you can watch here.

The video I made about my trip to Ann Arbor to see We The Kings got “liked” by a channel I follow on YouTube (top left thumbnail in the photo). The channel’s owner also plays bass for We The Kings. Because he liked my video, I’ve gotten a lot more views and even more subscribers! I’ve been a very happy girl!

I went down to Ann Arbor to hang out with my best friend Lauren and see We The Kings in concert! This photo was taken in the alley next to the theater. Lauren and I have always just called it “graffiti alley”. I made a video about my day which you can watch here.

Adventure: Good Deed Date

Over the weekend Alex and I decided we wanted to go on a date, but not just any kind of date. We’ve starting going on what we’ve entitled “Good Deed Dates” where instead of spending time or money on each other, we spend time together while doing good deeds for others. The first thing we did was attend an event called “Soup Per Bowl.” Attendees purchased handmade bowls that were then filled with soup.

Alex’s Spoken Word class was the talent for the event. He and his fellow classmates each presented a poem. The next item on the good deed date agenda was creating a care package for a friend who recently had foot surgery and has been feeling pretty down. He loves Batman so we themed the entire box around it, comic books included and everything.

We package everything up but couldn’t deliver it the same day because it just got too late.
