Want to hear the reason I haven't blogged all week? No really, I promise you haven't heard this one before! I accidentally shaved my finger on Sunday. Quick summary -- Walker and I were at my in-laws' house last weekend and as I was packing us up, I slipped my hand into a pocket of the bag only to slice a large chunk of my finger off with the razor that was facing outward. It bled for-EVER and stung like nobody's business. This, of course, was documented all on snapchat. I'll spare you the graphic pictures.
Needless to say, I legitimately could not press the keys to type without sharp pain shooting through my hand. Thus, no blog.
Whew! Now to the top five of the week:
1 // We had a lovely time with Walker's family last weekend (aside from the razor incident) and are looking forward to spending several more days with them this summer.
Yes, this is really what their backyard looks like.

2 // I have a job for next year! Since I'm non-tenured, I can't always count on being rehired year after year. The catch to this is that I have a major shift in my assignment. More on this next week.
3 // Our road trip to Virginia took 5 hours each way, so we stopped at a Starbucks to try their mini frappucinos coming home. They're smaller than the regular ones, so you only get a taste, but it was the perfect size for us.
4 // Saw this on facebook last week and it really resonated with me. Maybe it could encourage you if you're going through something difficult.
5 // I bought my very first Kate Spade bag this week! They were having their surprise sale (75% off) and I found one that I just absolutely fell in love with. I cancelled my Birchbox subscription and used the money to buy the handbag. I can't wait until it comes in the mail!
What are you up to on this beautiful Memorial Day weekend?
