don't wait for the perfect moment. make the moment perfect.

Some weeks are busier than others. The slower weeks are a blissful time to reduce my stress levels. The busier weeks? Those are long and draining. Last week was one of those crazy busy, too much going on, endless to-do list kind of weeks. It was exhausting. Parts of it were good....great even....and other parts just left me totally exhausted. In between a mountain of work, there were also a number of personal get togethers and events. Like celebrating St. Patrick's Day with a friend, going to see Frozen On Ice with my mom, apartment viewings with my fiance (and getting the apartment we wanted! Yay!), and heading to a friends party.

Yes, this past week has been pretty hectic. Since I am the type of person who likes schedules, planning, and routine, it is always a little tricky when a bunch of things disrupt that. Despite all of the stress and everything else....there were a lot of highlights. So, I thought I would share a few pictures from the week. Take a look!

St. Patrick's Day Celebrations included: a few drinks, a movie, and a chance to catch up and socialize. Oh, and plenty of green! 

Frozen On Ice included: an afternoon of shopping with my mom, lots of cotton candy, and the best snowman ever....Olaf! 

A friends party included: lots of lashes, glitter eyeshadow, big hair, and of course, some good company.

Last week was definitely more jam-packed than usual. In some ways that was a good thing. I had a lot of fun letting loose, being social, and making memories. On the other hand? I definitely hope this week will be a lot more low key.....

What has your week been like so far? How are you keeping busy?
