Sit Down With Sarah | Vol. 8

Hey y'all!

How the heck is the last time I did a SDWS in OCTOBER?!? In my head, I always think I never go too long without writing one of these posts, but I guess time just flies when you're having fun! I feel like I have so much to fill you in on! I'm officially on the post-grad side of life and let me tell you, it's definitely a lot different than being a college student!

I've been trying to keep myself busy, and I've sat down a few separate occasions to type out a blog post, but didn't really feel inspired enough to write. Then I remembered one of my favorite posts ever to write is a good ole' Sit Down with Sarah!

1. I turned 22
*Insert lyrics from Taylor Swift's 22* Can I stop growing up already? I feel like I've been 21 for all of 5 minutes and now I'm a whole year older. Feels wild that most college football players are now YOUNGER than me. Deep breaths, Sarah, deep breaths.

For my birthday, Michael and I went to Birmingham with my sweet little dog, Peanut. We went shopping around the Summit and even visited a few HomeGoods/TJ Maxx's (Fun fact: you can take your dogs into those stores as long as they are "contained" aka in the cart). We ended the night by watching Alabama win over Georgia. Roll tide forever.

2. I graduated (with honors, woohoo!!)
Speaking of roll tide forever, I'm now an ALUMNI of the University of Alabama. What the heck?? Ya girl graduated early, with another 4.0 semester under her belt. I have never felt more proud of myself than the day of my graduation. It felt soooo good to here "cum lade" read out after my name in front of thousands of people. Go me!! Here are some study tips to help ya out with your own graduation goals.

3. I went ~blonder~ (as seen in pic above)
Do blondes really have more fun?? I'd like to think so. I've always wanted to go lighter, but thanks to my reddish undertones, it's always been something that I could never accomplish on my own at home. I did get balayage a year ago, but I was ready to spice it up even more. Soooo I went lighter overall and I love it!! I really hope to go full blonde in the future, but we'll see!

4. vlog life
After so much back and forth on if I should take the plunge and just finally buy a vlog camera, I did it! I purchased the Canon EOS m6 based on one of my fave vlogger's (Sarah's Day) recommendation! Although I've only put up one video so far, I am beyond excited to journey into this new platform! Be sure to subscribe so you can stay up to date with my latest uploads.

5. ~five years later~
I hope you read that in the spongebob narrator voice because that's exactly how I intended for it to be read. This valentine's day, Michael and I officially celebrated 5 years together!! I'm about to get cheesy fyi. It really hasn't felt like we have been together for a whole 5 years, but at the same time, I can't really remember my life without him. I love being in love!!

To celebrate, we ordered in some yummy gyros and hummus (our fave) and watched the Lego Movie (inside joke, don't worry about it). Then the Saturday following Valentine's Day, we went to go see the Lego Movie 2 in theatres. We are planning on doing a trip for spring break to officially celebrate our anniversary, but it was fun doing a few simple things for the time being! I can't wait to spend even more time together hehe.

And now some SDWS Honorable mentions:
  • I went to Nashville...again... but this time, for Thanksgiving with Michael's family
  • Spent Christmas with Michael's family in Ohio
  • Read a toooooon of books (future post all about books to change your life!!)
Life sure is changing, and I'm so excited to share every step of my post-grad life!
