    The APS was definitely a highlight to my week and quite a rush! Lately, it's been pretty hectic so a nice spa night has been one of my favorite things.Mikayla | A Seersucker State of Mind.

    Ah work events are always crazy and tiring but worth it! I've been reading my September issues in bed before I sleep to relax, love the fall inspo! I can't wait to for my BF & I to get a dog, I miss having one around!I can't wait to be done working retail at Old Navy this weekend, and hopefully working an hourly job like that forever! This is my last week of summer ever, and unfortunately I'll be spending it working. But I can't wait for the school year to start, SO many exciting things will be happening!Excited for your content, xoxo

    It was so nice to read what you've been up to! I've definitely been doing a lot of content planning and writing lately — and I have to admit that I think it's paying off!

    I've had my cartilage pierced twice (had to let it close for dance a couple years ago) but you can get a little tiny hoop at any tattoo parlor. I know that sounds sketchy, but it's actually better than doing it at a jewelry store or Claire's. A needle is cleaner than a gun, so you are less at risk for infection. Just check Yelp reviews πŸ™‚ Have a great week!

    I love hearing your life updates! I kinda feel you on the Nascar thing, I grew up living less than an hour away from Talladega, but had only been to the dirt track (which is next to it). But this past year my husband and I took some of his and my dad's clients to a race and I loved it!xoxo, SSThe Southern Stylista

    Sounds like you had a crazy but eventful last week!Right now I am focused on getting all set for grad school to begin at the end of September, finishing this social media campaign for hopefully my future job, and writing content for my blog. I can't wait to see what's in store for you for September. xoxo, Jenny || Breakfast at Lillys

    Not too much about you at all! I love when I get to have a peek into bloggers' lives, especially the ladies I've gotten to know through the Millennial Bloggers Network! I'm wrapping up my nannying job for the summer (tear), shooting some collabs (slash looking for a new photographer), and getting ready to spend next semester abroad in Austria!PS – Get your cartilage pierced πŸ™‚ It will always close up when you are over it, and you're only young once!

    I've also sworn off mini-vans! I now drive an SUV, which is the biggest I've driven so far, and am not sure that I could park anything larger! I already struggle. haha I loved hearing all about what you're doing lately, I hope the event went well!!xo. A Peachy Sonder

    Where have I been? How did I not know you started a new job?! I feel so behind. And I agree–if sorority recruitment was good for one thing, it sure did teach us how to master small (awkward) talk. Marshallwww.thisblondestory.com

    Seriously, September is going to be here and then gone before we even know it. Time is going by so fast right now, and I just want it to slow down, at least a little! Glad you made it through the work event! I live within an hour of a NASCAR track and I do the SAME thing! They attract a certain crowd that isn't exactly my style!

    It sounds like you've been pretty productive! I think I would have been like you if I was told to drive a mini van. I've only driven an SUV once. I'm all about the car life. That's fun that you ended up loving the experience though. I've never been to a NASCAR race, and I don't keep up with it, but I think it'd be so fun to go to one! I'm glad you had an awesome time. Happy one year with Franny! Yay!

    Loved this update!! So glad to see what you've been up to during all the craziness! The mini-van thing made me smile. πŸ™‚ My summer job in high school was at a bakery and sometimes I used to have to drive a mini-van from our store location to the off-site location where everything was baked! At first I was so scared of it, but now I miss that van haha.xoxo Awww.southernbelleintraining.com

    I love your honesty about checking out from the blog because of work. I had to do that this month because it's our busiest month for events…and I feel so much better letting my readers know, "Hey, btw, sorry for being inactive for a few days – work took over!" It makes things more personable on your page. Hope you're loving the new job + that the event went great! x Nicole | http://www.changeanddress.com

    Seriously cannot believe you've had Franny for a year now – where has the time gone?! SO happy to hear you're really enjoying your new job and that this big event went off well. I didn't score anything in the After Party Sale, but my mother will be visiting the next few days for an early birthday celebration so I'm super excited about that πŸ™‚ Hope your week is going well!Pick Your Beau

    Once you find a good earring for your cartilage piercing you have to let me know. I had mine pierced in 10th grade but then it closed up. I've been wanting to get it redone with a hoop but I'm too scared! I'll do it if you will ;)Kayla | kaylablogs.com

    Such a lovely summary post! I passed my driving test on Thursday and I'm now looking for a car and I'm really liking the truck aesthetic (Nissan Navara and the likes) Unfortunately, my parents are looking for smaller cars as a starter car – i feel like a kid again xD Franny is such a cutiee, look at that smile!

    I'm terrified of driving mini vans–they seem so big! Franny is so adorable :)This looks like an amazing trip! If I ever go to Thailand I'll definitely keep all these things in mind, especially the things not to do…those are sometimes more valuable than suggestions on what TO do!Julia | Pennies & Paper
