I can’t believe it’s practically Fall! College Football started this week and I loved seeing the ‘Canes get an easy win against Florida Atlantic University. We face the University of Florida next weekend and, although we’re underdogs, I’m pretty confident we will be able to eek by with a win (hopefully that doesn’t jinx it). My sister is an UF alum so I think there will be some trash talking this rivalry week.
I haven’t been doing too much this Labor Day weekend. I decided to clean and organize my entire apartment and I’m pretty much done. It is so nice to see clean closets, organized shoes, a clean and organized fridge and a spotless kitchen. I’m going out to dinner tonight with a friend (I’ve already decided I’m getting the Greek salad from Newks) and I hope to hit the Piedmont Park pool tomorrow before the rain hits. What have y’all been doing this Labor day weekend? Tweet me, I want to live vicariously through you, lol!
Now on to what I wanted to ramble about. I want to start doing mothly recaps of my six favorite Instagram posts from the month. I follow a lot of bloggers on Blog Lovin’ and a good many do weekly recaps of all of their posts. I don’t post too much on Instagram so I think a monthly recap will suit me and hopefully be be fun to read!

Left: At the beginning of August I went to the High Museum of Art as a part of “Fulton Free.” I walked from my apartment to the museum and hit the Piedmont Park Green Market on my way. That iced coffee was one of the best I’ve ever had. I have to go back and get some more. It was sweet but not too sweet and super creamy.
Right: I took this picture right when my Painted Post print came in the mail. I won a sorority print from Your Sorority Sister and I think it looks great on my bulletin board. You can also see my little souvenir from the High (they are featuring Dutch Baroque including Vermeer’s “The Girl with a Pearl Earring”) and some more pictures because I’m pic obsessed!
Left: In the middle of the month I had a function with my sorority’s alumnae association but before the event some of us went to Front Page News. It was my first time there and I loved it. I love creole/New Orleans style food so it was a great choice in my book. Plus this glass made a pretty insta, if I do say so myself.
Right: I also volunteered at the Atlanta Ronald McDonald House this month with my sorority alumnae association. RMHC is our international philanthropy and I love going to the houses to serve meals and do crafts and other fun stuff with the families. For this trip we made breakfast for the house. I truly love going to volunteer and I’m so thankful I got introduced to this charity.
Left: I have been going to Piedmont Park to walk a lot this month and this is one of my pictures from my moseying. My front camera on my phone is still broken from Luke Bryan so I have to take pictures using the selfie camera. I like how this one looks almost impressionistic.
Right: I went to Blake Shelton on Thursday and he so good. He is such a great singer and entertainer and was one of the better concerts of the season. Easton Corbin opened for him and I love to see me some Florida country so it was a great night! PS I took this with my real camera and then grammed it.
Do you have a favorite picture you grammed this month? What was August like for you? I’d love to hear about your month (and see an insta or two) in the comments!
