Thankfulness: My Gratitude List!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
I have found myself really excited about all things related to springtime ever since the first blossoms outside my window bloomed. I love the pastel colors, beautiful flowers, and chirping birds that accompany the arrival of spring. 

Unfortunately, I have had very little time to enjoy one of my favorite seasons while busily working as a stage manager at my university. We are in the midst of an incredible production of William Shakespeare's The Tempest right now. It is chalk full of magical moments, flying fairies, and sword fights. 

I'm also just a couple of weeks away from graduating. The nervous excitement has not set in yet, but I have a feeling that it will be soon upon me. Especially once I finish up with finals and decorate my graduation cap. You can expect some Mickey Mouse ears or a Disney princess crown to be in the mix. 

Here is a little peek into my life via Instagram and all of the things currently making my heart smile. If you are not following me, my username is happytobequirky! Let's be insta-buddies!

 My sparkly pink sunglasses always make me smile; I always feel like a girly girl when I travel with my Betseyville cosmetic cases; George is my favorite snuggle buddy; A peek at my work space!

My sister baked some delicious red velvet cupcakes; My owl plush & nightmask; Apollo posing for a tunafish treat; Being goofy in the car with my sweetie while listening to oldies!

 Lots of blossoms on campus; Magnolia blossoms on my way to work; George in his adorable rain jacket; Gerbera daisies from our co-director for The Tempest.

A hippo Beanie Baby to add to my hippo collection (only a fellow hippo collector can appreciate a find like this); A snapshot of Apollo right before he sprang off the couch in hot persuit of a rogue moth; Red velvet cakeballs; Springtime bluebonnets (We are in Texas, afterall)!

Quirky Update!

Hello, Lovely Friends! I am so pleased to be back from my blogging hiatus. I have been extremely busy & overwhelmed over the past 9 days while working on projects, studying for exams, staying up until all hours of the night doing homework, and attending rehearsal for my university's production of The Tempest as the stage manager. 

It's been a difficult task to stay away from my blog while I concentrated on work, but I feel that it did me some good. I'm quite revitalized and excited about moving my blog in a new direction over the next month. 

I'm still struggling to recover from an awful eye infection. It all started out as allergies gone bad and escalated into a disgusting & swollen monstrosity. Both of my eyes & tear ducts are now currently infected. I am hopeful that my eyes will get better now that I am on some heavy-duty antibiotic eye drops. I appreciate all of the support I have received concerning my health. It means the world to me. 

Sending you lots of positive vibes,

I'm exceptionally excited for the arrival of spring. I have been walking along the wild flower preserve on my campus everyday just to enjoy to lovely colors & fragrant scents. I have also started wearing some of my favorite sundresses along with some brand new ones. What is your favorite thing about Springtime?

Here is a peek into my life via my instagram pictures.
