my september obsessions

I can’t believe it’s September already! How time flies when you’re having fun, right?! For me, September means Switzerland and I leave for my year-long study abroad in exactly ONE WEEK…..Eeeeek!!!! (no worries! I still be blogging about my adventures right here 😀 )

For one last hurrah, I took a wee excursion down to my true collegiate homeland, Texas A&M, for a little R&R with my best friends. While here, I made a few discoveries that instantly made my month totally worthwhile, thus compiling a true list of “september obsessions” (I promise there’s a recipe in here!)

1. This plate at the house of Emily, Katie, Madeline and Maddie

2. “Burnt Toast” by Teri Hatcher (it’s seriously hilarious guys)

3. Feeling posh while watching Gossip Girl and munching on these Grilled Goat Cheese and Strawberry Sandwiches 

4. Coffee bean ice cube trays—–> iced coffee

5. Settlers of Catan

6. Exit Through the Gift Shop: A Banksy Film

7. Getting a Starbie’s soy latte in the morning just for that treat receipt in the afternoon (well, let’s be honest here; any excuse is good enough to hit up the ‘bucks)
