mine was pretty low key. I spent a lot of time hanging with this gal. (side note..what was life before selfie pics???) We stayed in Friday night (may or may not of watched Pitch Perfect..for the uhh 40th time)

I spent some of Saturday studying. Then, like a typical senior in college, ditched studying plans to go to the bar with my friend Kirsten. Ness and I went out last night and met up with some friends from our Spain trip. It was a good (alcohol filled) time ;)

now that my brother and i are friends on snap chat I’ve ordered him to send me 5 million snap chats of my dogs. He’s sent me a few videos, plus some cute pictures (all of which I’ve taken a screen shot of)
