Five on Friday

My first blog post! I have been hoping and dreaming of starting a blog for a few months now and with the encouragement of my cousin-in-law, Christina of Carolina Charm, I finally went for it. What better way to start than with her favorite Five on Friday posts!
{one} Target has been an organizers heaven lately! I splurged on quite a few beautiful planners, calendars and bright washi tape rolls to keep my busy senior year organized. The yellow and grey (gray) combinations are swoon worthy... it is definitely my current favorite color combination.
{two} If you didn't pick up the August issue of Our State magazine hurry and run to the nearest store! (if you live in North Carolina that is) This issue has some breathtaking photography and timeless highlights of our lovely state. Stretching from the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains to the vigilant Currituck Beach Lighthouse, this issue has it all including 12-layer cake and wild horses (what more could you need?). 
{three} L.L. Bean boots...I am currently obsessed with these but haven't purchased them yet. I am possibly waiting for fall to set in and then I will be on a boot kick for sure. They seem more realistic to me than Hunter boots but maybe that's because I have zero calf muscles!
{1}                                                     {2}                                                       {3}
{four} Stationery...cue heart eye emoji... Stationery has been a huge weakness of mine for quite some time now. I found these beauts at HomeGoods! But the problem is... I have become a major slacker about actually writing and sending letters. My goal is to send at least one letter a week... Hear that friends and family who are reading this? Be sure to check y'all's mailboxes for some snail mail from Raleigh.
{five} Senior year at North Carolina State University... to say I'm excited, nervous, happy, proud and scared are all understatements. I never dreamed three years would fly by so fast or that I would graduate on time! I love my school and the Wolfpack who represent it. We may not have the prettiest campus in North Carolina but we do have incredible people who will become the closest friends you ever have.
Happy Friday!
