Hello world!

Hello blog-world!

My first post... how exciting! I've been following blogs for a while now, and just decided to try my hand at it. Wish me luck, I'm still getting the hang of things. I guess I should introduce myself, huh?

My name is Caitlin and I'm a college student at UNC Chapel Hill. I'm a daughter, a sister, a journalist, a writer, a fitness and health enthusiast, a southern gal, and, last but not least, a tarheel born and bred.

Some obsessions of mine:

-Family is the most important thing to me. I have the best family in the world! My mom is my best friend - isn't she beautiful?! We talk on the phone every day when I'm away at school.


-I love being a college student and think that UNC is the best school evaa. We study hard and bust our butts for a great education, but we also know how to have fun ;)

The Old Well at Chapel Hill

-I have a slight obsession with frozen yogurt. My friends and I go at least twice a week.. Our favorite is TCBY and it's only about a five minute drive down the road. Give me a big cup of half-cookies and cream, half-cookie dough and I'll be happy for days.
-I love to shop... Which is sort of a problem since I'm a broke college student. A few of my favorites are Lilly Pulitzer, JCrew, and any boutique-y shops.
-I'm in Kappa Delta at Carolina and I love it! My friends are the absolute best and make my life so much brighter. 


-I'm addicted to eating healthy and working out. I definitely will be posting some good eats on here!
-The BEACH is my favorite place! I'm actually writing this while looking out over the ocean. My family vacations on the coast of NC and we came up here for Easter weekend since my brother is on Spring Break.
-I'm pretty artsy and love photography and painting.
-My planner contains my life. I love having things organized and I feel a little better about myself when all of my activities and assignments are written down in pink and teal.

My mom got me up at 8 a.m. this morning so that my brother and I could come find the chocolate eggs she had hidden throughout the beach condo. The Easter Bunny also brought me a chocolate bunny, Reese's Eggs (Peanut butter is a weakness of mine), and Jelly Belly's. Looks like I'll be stocked up on candy for a while! We went to the Easter sunrise service on the beach today and the weather is looking perfect. Welp, I'm going to go throw on my bikini and soak up some sun before I have to head back to school this afternoon.

Happy Easter! :)

Love, Caitlin

  6. Welcome to the blogosphere! I'm looking forward to your reading your posts!

    And it's so crazy how you stumbled upon my blog! I love all the random search results google sometimes brings up. I do still do a lot of Lilly paintings when I have time! They are so much fun to do! I love that Lilly now turns their patterns into high-res desktop wallpapers. It has made it much easier to see the details in their patterns. There's a page on my blog that has all the Lilly desktop wallpapers from the last couple of years if you're looking for inspiration.
