Fourth of July Recap!

I haven’t posted a recap in forever so I thought I would fill everyone in on what’s new! If you haven’t picked it up in the previous posts; I am moving to Charlotte, NC at the end of August. I was dying to expand my horizons and start a new adventure so I decided to take a leap and move in the fall. But, besides that.. I’ve just been a busy little worker bee and just saving as much money as possible and trying not to put myself in a poor position when I move.

May

May brought the end of a semester and a small vacation. My best friend and I traveled to Portland so I could visit some friends and she could visit her sister. While I was there I got bangs, many brunches, and lots of clothes that I didn’t need. I had so much fun visiting my friends and was sad to come home. On the way home we drove an hour in the wrong direction, yikes, and had to turn around make it a two day trip. Although it felt like a lifetime to get back home, it’s always nice to travel with someone that you’re so close with because it never makes for ‘awkward’ car silences or conversations.

ALSO! My sister graduated high school! Woohoo! I’ve never been more proud of anyone and she is such an inspiration to ME (even though she is the younger sister!).

May also brought my friend Michelle’s birthday. We went out to a few bars and definitely had a few too many drinks! We had sooo much fun and it was totally a night to remember. Sometimes it is so nice to catch dinner and drinks with friends instead of curling up at home and watching movies (which is what I would rather do 99% of the time). I felt so blessed to be apart of her special day but I was for sure regretting some of the drinks the following morning.

June

This month I got to go to… Taylor Swift! She was playing in Denver and it was a last minute purchase. Kenzi, Michelle and I were spontaneous and just randomly bought the tickets to go see one of my favorite pop stars. And it was safe to say that she put on the most amazing show. Besides that, the trip was cut super short because it is hard for us all to get the same time off. We drove back in a hurry but it didn’t make the trip any less amazing.

Believe it or not, but I went to four movies in June. I am beside myself that I spend that much money on movies but who doesn’t love a good matinee? I went to see Book Club (awful, don’t see!), Incredibles 2 (movie of the year for sure!), Tag (so incredibly stupid), Jurassic World (eh) and Oceans 8 (Sandra Bullock will forever be a babe). Even though all these movies were so wonderful, I think the best movie that I have seen this year yet would be Love, Simon. It is so touching and heartfelt and if you haven’t seen it – you need to.

July

Well, it is only the 7th ..  but my fourth was pretty great with great friends. Besides getting sunburnt to a crisp while on the lake with my family, my friends and I went to the lake and had some drinks and basked in the sun all day (woohoo!). It is so rare to get these times with my friends and I really do cherish every single moment.


I know my life seems super boring at the moment but I promise I’ll be more exciting soon! Until then .. here are some photos my sister took of me last weekend to practice studio lighting. She is so talented and if you all don’t follow her on Instagram already then you should start! @alexajorgensonphoto
