Life Lately: Instagram Round Up

These past few weeks have been jam packed and looking ahead, I won't be getting a break anytime soon. But, I'd rather be busy than bored!
A few weeks ago I hosted the cutest Bachelorette Party for one of my good friends (and now the wedding is NEXT WEEK!) and last weekend was spent soaking up the sun on the beach and reading as many books as I could.
Still craving these cupcakes (P.S. Find these cupcake toppers here ALSO check out these monogram toppers #dying)
I think this is the first week I WON'T be at the beach, which is sad, but it's also my birthday week so I'll get over it and still find a way to get out on the water.
In the meantime, I'll be practicing my best maid of honor speech for the toast I know I'll have to give, shopping for a rehearsal dinner dress, watching Shark Week, and  working on packing everything that I've accumulated in the short span of two years (which is a lot), to move back home with the parents at the end of the month.

Moving back in won't be all that bad I've decided. I'll be closer to friends and family and saving money (plus my parents have a pool, so...see not all bad). Still, the whole "moving process" might just kill me. So much stuff, so little time.

Follow me on Instagram @allison_ellzey if you don't already add me on Snapchat "aellzey" to catch behind the scenes of my crazy life.

  14. Moving is hard, and it's stressful to live with family! Just think of it as a stepping stone to bigger and better things and cherish the time with your family :)

  15. I love that Lilly pattern - definitely my favorite of the summer!

    Also, I moved back home with my parents this year after graduating college - I'm not going to lie, it's kinda terrible sometimes but also not that bad. A mix! You'll make it! We'll all make it!

  16. That bachelorette party was the cutest!!! Mine is in a few weeks and I am so excited!
