Lately

Phew, what a whirlwind week! With a midterm, a final and a memo due I feel as though I've hardly had time to breathe. On top of all that! this week AWLS had our bake sale and Masquerade Ball Charity Auction. Both the auction and the bake sale were put on by an organization I am a part of called AWLS (Association of Women Law Students) and the raised money for the Methodist Home and the Middle Georgia Rescue Mission. For the bake sale I made these cute little 7-layer dip cups and my go-to chocolate kiss cookies. For the 7-layer dip cups I used the same recipe I blogged here, except I made them it into individual servings with mini cocktail cups then stuck 3 tortilla chips inside!  


They don't look super pretty but anything mini is cute right?
For the cookies I used the recipe I blogged here, but instead of the candy cane kisses I just regular ones. 

By Friday, we were all ready for a break after our exams which was perfect since we had the Masquerade themed Charity Auction to attend! Morgan's MOH Mack was in town so she was able to come along. I didn't get super creative with my masquerade cocktail attire and actually wore the exact same outfit that I wore to the wedding last weekend (here). I figured it was not a big deal since the wedding was in Michigan I would not see any of the same people! One thing I did add was a super sweet mask that I ordered here. It was a Masquerade party after all!

AB & me! You can see my mask in this picture! (p.s. AB is my fellow law school Lilly lover...doesn't she look just darling in her Helene?!?) 
Of course the next morning I just had to make Mickey Mouse Waffles!
I have also been quite busy making some changes to my apartment! I know, I know I just moved in but there were some parts that I really needed to organize / clean up! I am so happy with how my projects have turned out. 

For one, I got a more festive spring wreath! 
I also built a bookcase for my desk area...anyone who knows me well, knows that building this all by myself was a HUGE accomplishment. 
Part of my desk reorganization...don't y'all worry I have an upcoming post on the whole deal! 
I finally framed and hung the print that sweet Beth sent me in last months Cara box! It looks so wonderful!
I also added the finishing touches to my new bookshelf, including frames, bookends and fake plants! 
Spring is Springing down here y'all! Seriously, how beautiful is my school?!
More fun times to be had this upcoming week so stay tuned for the details on those, as well as a new paleo post AND my desk redesign post! *phew*
