The last 2 weeks have been a whirlwind! Between school and work, I have been running around like crazy trying to get everything in order before I left for spring break. On top of that, I have been fostering 2 adorable 2 week old kittens! Feeding them every three hours has caused me to lose sleep but it has been well worth it to know that I have made a little difference in someone's life.
Last weekend was my sorority formal and I had so much fun! I was super excited to be down a dress size (it was super stressful ordering it because they were out of my original size and I was renting the dress so I couldn't do alternations!) But, it fit! So that is a NSW! I will be attaching a photo at the bottom!
Yesterday, I started my spring break right with a HUGE St. Pat's festival in Columbia. It was my first time being 21 on St. Pat's so it was awesome to finally have caught up with my friends and be able to do everything! However, I had way too much fun. If that wasn't bad enough I am going with my boy on a beach trip in three days! We will be packing food for breakfast and lunch and then eating out 1 meal a day (the trip will be 4 days total!)
So that brings me to a question for you all- what are your vacation strategies? is there anything you do that is particularly helpful? I will be staying at a resort with lots of amenities so one idea I have is to really make use of the different exercise opportunities (like the water park!)
Another issue I have been having is combining the healthy life that I strive for with the fact that I just turned 21 and enjoy going out with my friends, partying, and yes- sometimes drinking. I have tried to research ways to drink "healthier" and make better drink choices but most articles I find seem to have NO idea what college is like. AT ALL. Most of the advice seems to be "don't drink (or only have 1) and if you do partake make it a vodka tonic (ew!!) For me, this advice is a recipe for disaster because even if I do follow it I will be pretty resentful about it. There has got to be a happy medium! So with that- what would you suggest I drink on my vacation? Crystal light and strawberry vodka? Rum and Coke?
Let me know any suggestions that you have!
