August's Rhapsody; InstaWeek

Anyone else a fan of August Rush? I seriously love that movie. The music is incredible, Freddie Highmore is adorable, and could Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Kerri Russell be any more beautiful together? I think not. Plus, I love almost everything Robin Williams does and it was interesting to see him as the antagonist in this story.. but I digress.

It's AUGUST! The end of summer is drawing nearer and nearer by the day. I knew the abroad trip would cause July to zoom by but I truly had no idea. We are two weeks from the start of school and that blows my mind. Over the past week I've been zipping back and forth between my parents' house and my apartment at school. I'm ready for some down time but I am happy to say that I won't have any for a while. Here's a little of what I've been up to:

1. Since the trip, I've had so much journaling to catch up on. At least a week's worth from Paris and then the day to day.
2. I am in love with my new bedding from Anthropologie. All bedding is now 25% off! I bought 2 shams today so the bed is nearly finished!
3. Oh, Common Grounds and McAllister's, how I've missed you. A large sweet tea on the deck under a fan is the perfect August afternoon.
4. I finally watched some of the Olympics! I must say I am a big fan of swimming and gymnastics down. Team USA!
5. Everyone is uploading study abroad pictures it seems! We relive each of the memories with every tag. I miss it very much.
6. As soon as I got home, I got a sinus infection. Ew. I spent last weekend tucked in bed with Pride & Prejudice and Pinterest to keep me company.
7. I have been to Anthropologie more times in the past two weeks than I should have.. but the decor is so inspiring!
8. I spent 4+ hours last Thursday waiting for my tires to be changed and balanced. Needless to say I was bored out of my mind.
9. Yesterday, my sister, mom, and I went to First Monday Canton to do a bit of shopping. It was 106 out but we managed anyway.

How has your August been treating you so far?


  1. You should watch Downton Abbey if you are sick in bed! It's incredible! Also, that bedding makes me swoon. It's so beautiful.

    1. I've heard it's good! Off to check Netflix and Hulu. Thanks for the suggestion!

  2. That bedding looks sooo beautiful!! Love Anthro bedding :)
