The Little Things That Make My Heart Smile

Oh, Lovelies!!

I just got home from a 3 day trip with my school choir, and I couldn't be happier to laze around in my bed while I write this blog post. We had an amazing time while on tour, although we didn't get much sleep for the past three days (I'm a complete mess without at least 6 hours of sleep every night). We sang a small program of songs for several high schools and community colleges in the San Antonio and Austin area. Here is a little list of my loves this week:

Seeing Wicked! We went to see Wicked last night at the Majestic Theatre in San Antonio. It was AMAZING!! I have seen it before when we were in London two years ago, but I loved it just as much here in Texas. 

Lunch and shopping dates with my sis! I have always had the best time hanging out with my sis. She is the one person in my life who can convince me to buy something that I'm really lusting after but I don't necessarily need. I think everyone needs someone special to go shopping with like her.  

My new domain name:!! I'm so excited about it!! I've been wanting a domain name for years, but I never really had any use for one until I started blogging. 

Having three days away from school, stress, rehearsal and homework! I really needed a respite from all the chaos and business. It was so lovely to spend time with my friends while on choir tour and not have a million things to worry about.  

Little Bursts of Happiness...

They seriously make my day!!!
