Nikki Lately

Hey y'all! Is it just me or does it feel like Mondays come around way more than usual?! Well this week was jam-packed and exciting. 

For starters, do you guys notice an awesome change on this little ole' blog?! The amazing Brianna completely re-designed my blog and made it look soooooooo incredible. I do not have enough great things to say about her. She immediately emailed me once I contacted her and we started the process right away and she worked away and did this amazing work in 2 days!! She not only has a super quick turn around, she's always responding back to emails, her prices are super affordable, and she's such a sweetheart! She even has a la carte services, you can check out all her info here.

 On Tuesday I had my last final ever and it was such a relief to know that I passed my psych class with an A. After my final, my sister and I headed downtown to my cousins place until the Bulls game later that night. The game was such a blast, as always!

The next day (Wednesday), my sister and I headed to the Shedd Aquarium to spend the day there. I haven't been there since I was tiny and it was so exciting and awesome to see all the exhibits. The aquatic show and jellies exhibit were so interesting and I learned a ton!

Since we were in the city, after the Shedd we headed to Crumbs bake shop to get some yummy cupcakes!

Later that evening, the local Sephora had a pre-release of the Naked3 palette, so I had to wait in line to grab one for myself. I am in love with this new palette and have used so many of the colors already!

Thursday & Friday was spent mostly cleaning and organizing the house as best as I could.
Saturday was supposed to be a day to just stay in, be cozy, and watch Christmas movies. That is, until my sister texted me that she scored 2 free tickets to the Jingle Bash, a concert put on by the local radio station. I of course was excited, but needed to find someone to join me so last minute. My best friend had plans, but somehow convinced me to ask the guy I've been crushing on. I was adamant on not asking him because it was awkward, but she somehow got me to just ask him. I asked him and he said he would love to come with. Now I know this was just us going as friends, but I knew it would be a fun time with him regardless. He was a perfect gentleman and held all the doors open for me! Even though some of the performances weren't our cup of tea, we enjoyed people watching and joking the entire night. He even invited me to go out afterwards with some of his friends downtown, but I had to decline since I was on-call in the morning. I'm not sure if he is interested in me at all, but I think hanging out with him alone was a huge step for me. I'll keep y'all posted on if this goes anywhere!
*Unfortunately no pictures of the 2 of us, but here are some from the concert*

*The first picture is my awkward snapchat selfie I sent to my friend while waiting for said guy to meet me up, it doesn't show, but I was soooo nervous*

Sunday was spent working in the am and watching football the rest of the day. 

I'm linking up with Bella for Weekend Recap (thanks to Kate I found another weekend recap link up!)

Hope you guys had a great week/weekend and have an awesome week ahead.
