Packing Boxes... Metaphorically Speaking..

Today, I'm moving again, to a new blog. This blog kinda incorporates what I have been trying to relay in all of my past blogs: nothing goes according to plan. Therefore, my new blog is..... Out Of These Hands (or ooth, which is something you might see, if I'm talking about my blog). So yeah. Come check it out.. it's at .
XOXO, Abbey Elizabeth

Summer Lovin'

After spending quite a few days committed finishing the yearbook, I got a lovely break from working and spent the whole day in town. It was such a nice relief, and really got me excited for college, and getting to explore Tulsa more and more. First, I went to lunch at this adorable lunch stop in Tulsa, Big Al's, for a yummy vegetarian pita with a banana strawberry blueberry smoothie. Sooo FRESH! If you are ever in Tulsa for any reason, this is a place that you must stop at, or if you live in Tulsa and have never been there, you should probably go over there! Their sandwiches, wraps, and pitas are amazing, and they are so vegetarian/vegan friendly (which makes me smile)!
After that, I met up with Leah, and we spent the afternoon running around downtown Tulsa. We spent a lot of time catching up, and she modeled for me, which was SO much fun!

I absolutely loved taking pictures with her, and have completely fallen in love with her eyes, and how she poses, maybe I just love her. Yeah, that's probably it.
After we became completely exhausted and sweaty, we headed over the the Coffee House on Cherry Street, and enjoyed some vegan chocolate cake (also something that one should try when in Tulsa), and then later a muffin, and just talked for a couple of hours.
I have to say, it was a pretty awesome day, and Leah and I are already planning some more downtown-days, and are going to be smart and bring sunscreen, water, and bikes!
I also spent an awesome day with one of the many Hanna's, and took tons of pictures, but I will post those tomorrow, cause it is SUPER late, as well as pics from something fun that the fam did tonight!
Sweet dreams everyone,
XOXO, Abbey Elizabeth.

Finally Free..... Kinda.

School got out over a week ago. Yet, I have been at school at least half of that time. Oh the joys of yearbook, and to make it even better, it has found it's way to creep into my home. Lets just hope that it is over soon. That being said, I have also taken quite a bit of pride in my part of creating the yearbook over the past few days while working on it. I have realized how amazing it is that we can put together such a memory-filled book, and it has really started to sink in even more that next year will be the last time I will help to make those memories, and document them.
I am a high school senior.
I must say, it still hasn't completely set in that I am now part of that class that the underclassmen look at in awe, thinking how big we are. And it hasn't quite set in yet that next year at this time, I will be preparing to go to college, Claremore, Manhattan, or wherever it may be.
I think that my recent realization of how important these memories are has really inspired me, and I can't wait to find a normal schedule so that I can start creating.
So, it has been quite a long time since I last wrote, and that's due to that 30 day challenge I did (which I totally didn't accomplish.. due to reasons that will be explained in this paragraph). It was kinda funny, cause I did this challenge to be able to have time to create and slow down and enjoy every day, but I found that I was so busy with the end of the school year, that those things weren't even possible! Now that summer's out, I really am going to try to stay off of the computer so much, and just live, but that doesn't mean that I won't be around at all, cause I wan't to come up with a regular blogging schedule too (for all of you faithful readers out there, I love you Andi, Hannah, and Sarah). I think that this blog is going to end up going a very different direction than before, with alot more creative things going on, especially photography-wise, because I will be vigorously working on building a highly fabulous portfolio this summer, as well as hopefully getting some photography business (check out Abbey Road Photography & Design on Facebook!). I also am going to start a visual journal for the summer, probably out of a fun vintage book from one of my beloved antique stores in Jenks. I also am planning on featuring daily outfits, weekly inspiration, and all kinds of fun stuff. So, look forward to some fun things happening here soon!
Now, I leave you with an inspiring picture from weheartit, that sums up summer for me, well.. not completely, but close enough!
Happy summer, and until tomorrow...
XOXO, Abbey Elizabeth

One Month Challenge.

Lately I have found myself struggling with finding balance between my time spent on the computer, and time spent actually living. And honestly, more of my free time is spent on the computer than actually living my life and enjoying time with the people I love. So I've decided that I am going to challenge myself and take a whole month off from computer and my itouch, except for school purposes. This is honestly going to be super hard, but I'm kinda excited on what I can accomplish when I don't let the internet consume me on a daily basis. And on top of that, I'm going to keep a visual journal of my 30 or so days until I'm back online. I think this will be good, getting my priorities on track.
So, this is the last time I'm going to write for a while.
Much love, Abbey Elizabeth.

Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! Tonight we watched Nacho Libre, ate amazing soft tacos, and I made some virgin margaritas! It was such a fun evening, even though we really don't celebrate the meaning of it, it's just another reason for us to have a little fun! Hope your day was amazing!

C'est La Vie

Wow. This week has hit me like a truck. I have had so much going on, and not much time to just sit and relax. But that's ok cause this week has been quite amazing so far (don't worry, I'll tell more tomorrow). And I know, I haven't posted about his boy yet.. but don't worry. I will. Just not today. Cause I'm going to bed. Honestly, I'm really not all that sorry for not blogging, because I have been able to enjoy life without trying to think of things to blog about, and instead let life happen, and now I can blog about what happened. How lovely is that?
Well, off to bed!
XOXO, Abbey Elizabeth
