My Monday Musts

Happy Monday, readers!

Hope you’re all as relaxed and as energized as I am! For once, I’m starting a Monday Must off by telling you how relaxed and calm I am, instead of stressed. I went home this weekend to celebrate my grandparents’ 50th wedding anniversary. Not only was I able to get 15 hours of sleep on Friday night and shower without flip flops on (aka the greatest blessings in a college student’s life), but I was able to spend time with my family!

My grandparents got married 50 years ago, at the ages of 18 and 19 and are still deeply in love with each other. I think it’s crazy to think that now, at the age of 20, my grandma was already married for two years. As I go through college, the rest of my life, and go through the crazy thing of dating I hope to one day find a husband who loves me for as long as my grandfather loves my grandma.

But, enough with sappy cuteness (I mean, I am a Pisces, so I can’t help it) – here are this week’s My Monday Musts!

1. Theta Theta’s Diamond Dash

This weekend, my sisters and I are hosting our second annual Diamond Dash event, which is a 5K run/walk to help raise money for New Haven’s Ronald McDonald House. One of the reasons I chose to accept my bid to Alpha Delta Pi was because I love our philanthropy, Ronald McDonald House Charities. I’m convincing all my friends to sign up – because for the cost to sign up, only $10, you are providing a family one night stay at RMH!  If you want to support my sisters and I, you can donate to our Diamond Dash event and the Ronald McDonald House of New Haven here. I can’t wait to share pictures from the event with you next week! I’m also proud to announce that these beautiful sisters of mine and I are also Quinnipiac’s Greek Week Winners!

2. The iPhone 5S

Another perk of going home – I finally got my main birthday present!! Yay! I absolutely love it. If you have the opportunity to upgrade your phone, I absolutely recommend getting the iPhone 5S. My picture quality is so much clearer, my phone runs so much faster, and I love the slenderness of the phone. Another perk, in my opinion, was that that it was nice to start fresh. All text messages – gone. All pictures – gone. It’s like a brand new start. My phone gives me the power to accomplish so much – I’m even typing this up on the WordPress app!

3. There’s a bunch of goodies I’ll be sharing with you all soon!

As much as I loved not only seeing my family, sleeping in my own bed, and showering with out flipflops – I loved coming home to packages on my bed filled with great goodies to review on “Sparkle and Shine.” I’ve shared on Instagram and Twitter recently a novel that Seventeen sent myself and other members of the Seventeen Social Club to review, as well as the Univox Goodies from Influenster. I can’t wait to share these goodies with you all on my blog. Hopefully, you may even find some goodies you’ll need to shop for next time you go out once I share all these reviews with you!

 Plus, I’m now all registered for my first semester classes of junior year – whaaaaaaaat?! I can’t believe how fast college is flying by.

With Diamond Dash on Sunday, I want this week to fly by, but after that everything can slow down! Whether your week goes by fast or slow, enjoy it. Keep sparkling, readers!
