Life Lately Vol. 31

Happy Friday, friends! It feels like it's been forever since my last volume of Life Lately, so I'm glad to sit down today and catch up with y'all. November was a particularly crazy month, but such a good one. So many fun things happened - this month was definitely one for the books!

That being said, I'm so excited that it's finally December. I love all things Christmas, and I'm looking forward to really get in the holiday spirit!



If you've read my 101 in 1001 list, you'll know that I've wanted to do a Color Run for a while. I finally got to participate in one the other day when my school hosted one to raise awareness for human trafficking. It was such a fun event: I loved getting to run with all my friends and take cute pictures afterward!

My stepdad's birthday was at the beginning of November, and since he loves ice cream, my mom and I made this ice cream cake from Sally's Baking Addiction! It was pretty time-consuming, but turned out so well and didn't last long in our house :)

Over Thanksgiving break, my family and I went to tour TCU! It was such a fun day - I got to meet the dean of journalism and walk all around the beautiful campus. You can read more about my trip here!


My sweet friend Ashley's birthday was a couple weeks ago, so I went with her and my friend Sarah to grab Gigi's Cupcakes after school! Ashley and I go to a different high school than Sarah does, so it was great to get to catch up with her!


My sisters and I have a Thanksgiving tradition where every year, we make our favorite pie. While I usually help out with the majority of the food, my sisters don't like to cook that much, so this is a good way to get them involved with the dinner. They made a pumpkin pie and a chocolate brownie pie, and I made a chocolate pecan pie. They were all delicious, and we had such a fun Thanksgiving full of delicious food!

I'm so happy to say that all of our Christmas decorations are finally up! I spent the good majority of last weekend decorating for Christmas and doing a little bit of gift shopping, and I love how all of our trees turned out!

I think that about covers it... now you're all caught up with my life! Have a great weekend!
