Weekend Adventures

I hope you all had a great weekend! It's back to school today, although my Mondays will be a lot better from now on because my roommates and I now have a dog! More on that later, here's what I did this weekend.


I have my one class on Friday, but ended up coming home to all my roommates being there. It's somewhat rare that we're all home during the day, even on Friday, so we all spent about a half hour deciding on something fun to do. We decided on going to a very late lunch at 3:30 and then a spontaneous shopping trip to the mall close to our house. It was only a few hours, but it was so nice to have some roommate time.


My best friend Steph is graduating early and headed into a masters program a few weeks after she graduates (!!!) so we went to Disneyland and took her senior pictures. Our other roommate Nicole was the photographer while I was in charge of wardrobe. The park wasn't extremely crowded, although people always seem to find a way to get into photos! The pictures turned out really great, and I don't want to ruin the surprise of her showing her pictures, but here's one that Nicole already posted.


We spent the whole day at the Orange County Pet Expo on Sunday. The main goal of the day was to find a dog that Nicole wanted to adopt, but there was a lot more to the Expo than adoptable pets. There were so many dog exhibits that showed the different breeds, and each exhibit had multiple dogs!! We spent about an hour with the Great Pyrenees because Steph has one at home and really misses him. 

There were a lot of giant breeds there which was super interesting as I had never seen any in real life! I knew Great Danes were huge, but they were almost as tall as me! So we spent the day walking through all the dogs and cats, petting the animals and chatting up the owners. There were also a lot of booths set up for companies and I actually ran into Arm the Animals! I worked with them on an outfit post earlier this year and we had a great discussion about working together in the future. It was great getting connected to these companies and animal owners, and it was such a fun day. 

At the end of the day we were walking through the adoptable dogs and Nicole decided on this little cutie pie! We named him Mowgli and he is just about the sweetest pup ever. He absolutely loves kisses, sometimes a little too much, and just wants to play or cuddle all the time. He's better than I could have hoped and I can't wait for the little guy to get 100% settled in our house. 

Hope you all had a great weekend, and a great start of the week. Sorry this post is up so late! New dog and nearing finals isn't the easiest combination of events to write blog posts under. 

Also, most of you have probably already guessed with the pictures of burgers and starbucks on my Instagram that I'm not doing Whole 30 anymore. On day 8 I got pretty sick and officially quit by day 12 because my body was just 100% craving real hearty food. I tried my best, but the sickness just took over. I'm still attempting to eat healthier than before, but my cold still hasn't fully left me yet! It's ridiculous how intense this cold was. In the future I will definitely try again to complete Whole 30, but it just wasn't in the cards for me to do it right now!


  1. Haha, people DO have a way of getting into photos, don't they?! Her graduation picture is lovely, and I'm sure the rest are great :)

  2. Mowgli is soooo cute! I can't wait to see more of him :) And don't feel bad about stopping Whole 30 - I think it's important to always listen to what your body needs!


  3. awwh, looks like such an action packed weekend! Lovely graduation photo (:

  4. Ah such a filled weekend! I really don't think I could do Whol 30!

  5. I never even knew there was such a thing as a pet expo, seriously I need to go to one!

  6. Mowgli is SO cute! I think I would want to adopt all of the dogs at the pet expo!

  12. Mowgli is so cute! He looks just like my old doggy! I think whole 30 is a great idea, but knowing your body's limits is the most important thing! And who doesn't love a good burger? ;)

  13. Oh what a fun idea... to take graduation pictures at Disney Land! So fun.
