Everyday Pearls: Life as a College Senior


HELP! Writing the words "college senior" and "graduating in December 2015" is terrifying. The past month has been an absolute whirlwind, but filled with so many good things. I haven't updated you on life lately (August was basically working and sleeping and working some more). Being a college blogger isn't always glamorous, and I see a blog break at the end of October in my future. But anyway, here's what I've been doing!







My pledge sister turned 21!

One of my best friends SB came to meet me for margs and life catching up. 


My biological sisters, and three girls who are basically my sisters at the farmers market one Saturday. 
My beautiful big got married! 

Des Moines isn't so bad. 

Breakfast with my favorite guy!

These women keep me silly and grounded

One of my perfect littles!

Two of my favorite girls to spend time with! 

One limb of my family tree!

______________________________________________________________________




MB PROPOSED! I am officially engaged to my favorite person in the whole world! Matt (MB) is now my fiancé and we're just enjoying being engaged! It'll be a longer engagement because of some life events, but I honestly couldn't be happier!

(He proposed the night before the Packer v.  Seahawks game, and so most of our pics are from the game:))


Life is crazy but oh so happy. It's been a whirlwind, and I still forget to call Matt my fiancé. But I really don't think I could be happier! I have a huge event that I'm co-chairing with one of my littles, and it's coming up so quickly. Thank goodness wedding planning can wait!


How's life for you? What are you looking forward to in the coming weeks?

  14. I remember being at the point you're at now. :) I just graduated in May and I was SO nervous and anxious and excited and pretty much every emotion at the same time. Just smile and be happy for everything you've done and will do! Good luck, girl!
