All Choked Up

Morning began with love!!! 

I ran out of Kashi GoLean so I headed to the store with the sole purpose of getting some more, however, but I ended up getting Kashi's Heart to Heart Warm Cinnamon... a rather spontaneous decision! 

Kashi's Warm Cinnamon, Almond Milk, Nanner, and PB&Co.'s Bee's Knees

Sooo good!! Kashi never disappoints :) 

After b-fast I headed to school to pick up.... my cap & gown!!! 

I don't know why but the fact that I am graduating did not hit me until  I had the  cap & gown in my hands. As I walked out of the room with my cap and gown in hand, I got all choked up *tear* . I started reminiscing about my whole college experience, all of the highs and the lows, and what an awesome ride it has been! Check it out, loads of good times.

Time flies so ENJOY it!!!

So today I laid back and enjoyed a beautiful day :)

and finally got the chance to finish the Twilight saga, one of my guilty pleasures!

What do/did you love about college? 

What is your  guilty pleasure? 


  1. What I miss from college? Sleeping in past 5am. I loved studying (that's why I am applying for grad school in a few months lol)....I misssss sleeping!

  2. THAT is so exciting.. cap & gown girl.. that is the real deal!

    What do I miss from undergrad... free time! not having a clue about the real world, etc.. the parties, social scene, etc..

  3. My mom bought the cinnamon cereal the other day. It is amazing, but I think I am going to have to wait until October to eat that up. It seems like it would warm me up - I may have to wait until November because it is still 90 degrees in Houston in October lmao!

    As for the wraps - here is a TMI - Do you have stomach issues? IBS? I have no idea what the issue was haha

  4. My guilty pleasure is silly reality shows.

  5. the question should be what did i not love about college? i loved it all....i went to a small college in colorado and adored it so much. loved my classes-loved the mountains-loved the cycling and running-yes enjoy it to the end for sure :)
    happy graduation!

  6. I love still not having any real direction in life, just kinda taking it one step at a time and not worrying about that!

  7. Ahh I remember getting my HS cap and gown, it was so bittersweet- I feel like graduating from college will be a totally different feeling though!! To be honest, I'm not much of a "college" person- I can't wait to be in the real world! But I do love having minimal responsibilities and spending lots of time with my friends :) Hope you're having a great day love!!

  8. I loved college. Everything about it was fantastic but then again I really enjoy learning. The partying wasn't too bad either ;)
    Guilty pleasures? hmmmm...I'll have to think on that one.

  9. GOsh, I absolutely understand how you would get choked up just thinking about impending graduation! I think my four years at college were perhaps the best of my life and I would relive them gladly again and again if that were possible!! I miss those days of bliss with my best friends. I think I just miss the people most. The older I get, the harder it is to spend time with each and every one of my dearest friends. I guess that's also my guilty pleasure- daydreaming about the "good old days!" I hope you have a fabulous few days and soak it all up before the big day!!

    Loove that quote, by the way. It really sums it all up perfectly.

  10. I LOVE COLLEGE!! i love the community!! its awesome!!

  11. I loved college and was super sad to see it end!!! :(

  12. i miss all the social time in college! I loved going out with friends and socializing but now its all about work work work! blahhh its also much harder to stay in touch with friends, and we all live in different states and cities so its hard! I do my best though!

    love your spontaneous decision with the cereal!!
