five things

It's hard to get back into the groove of things after a mini vacation.  Unfortunately for me, these next two weeks are going to be crazy hectic with my exams coming up.  Can't believe that I'm almost done with my first semester of graduate school {!!}.  Time has gone by so quickly.  Hopefully these next two weeks fly by as well because my next destination is Dallas, Texas in 3 1/2 weeks.  Here are some things that have put a smile on my face even in the midst of all my school work.
