Life Lately Vol. 28

Y'ALL... it's officially the first day of fall!!! As I said in my last blog post, fall is my favorite season, and I'm so excited for fall fashion, pumpkin spice everything, cool weather (which may be asking too much of Texas considering it's still 95 degrees here) and more! As much as I love summer, I'm so glad it's over - after school starts, I feel like summer has offically ended, and then you're just in that weird "in-between" spot from summer to fall... anyone else feel this way?

A lot has happened since my last volume of Life Lately, so grab a snack (I recommend anything pumpkin-flavored from Trader Joe's) and sit tight, because this post is going to be a long one!

I celebrated my 15th birthday a few weeks ago! My family and I went out to dinner at my favorite restaurant, The Hula Hut, to celebrate! We went there when we went to Austin, but they have another one in Dallas, and I love it because the atmosphere is gorgeous but the food tastes amazing, too! I also had a birthday brunch the next day with my friends, which was a lot of fun, because I go to a different school than some of my friends so this was a good chance for us to catch up.

Also, my sweet friend Ashley gave me a gorgeous Bible for my birthday that she hand painted herself! It has margins on the pages for Bible journaling, so I really want to start doing that, but I'm not sure what supplies to use. If you have any reccommendations, please leave them in a comment below!

I also joined YoungLife recently, and it's been incredibly fun thus far. We've only had two meetings, but I'm looking forward to going every Monday night. If you don't know what YoungLife is, it's a Christian youth group meant for high school students that meets once a week for a meeting filled with fun! They have YoungLife organizations all over the country (I actually heard about it from my friend Faith in South Carolina) and it's a great way to grow your faith and become closer to God. For our first meeting, we had a giant food fight, and it was the messiest thing I've ever done (I was pulling pancake batter out of my hair for days) but it was such a fun experience!

Just like every other basic girl, I'm completely addicted to anything and everything pumpkin flavored. Thus, when Trader Joe's released their pumpkin food, I was one very happy girl! I went with my family, and we filled an entire cart with pumpkin-centric items (#noshame). My personal favorites are the pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin pasta sauce, pumpkin pepitas cookies, pumpkin bread mix, and the pumpkin kringle. I could go on, but you get the idea - just know that if you don't go to Trader Joe's for pumpkin items on a regular basis during the fall, you're living your life wrong.

Thanks for reading - I hope you had a great week!
