hey guys.
  Look who has absolutely failed at blogging these last couple of weeks. yep. me.

recently (today) I came up with a new goal/ motivation system, and I figure the best way to keep me accountable is to post about it on here!

My system is creating goals for the week each Monday (and possibly adding more through out the week) and the deciding on a reward for the week! If I complete all of my goals, than I can get my reward, if I don't, I have to wait until next week and see if I can complete those goals!

Goals for March 31- April 6 2014

+Finish my DBQ Monday
+Get feedback on my DBQ
+Get 100% on my Webassigns
+Get 100% on my IP's
+Get 90% on my Makeup Quiz
+Keep up with my english reading each night
+Study Spanish Vocab Nightly
+Complete Notes on the Entire History Chapter
+Study for History Quiz for 1+ hours
+ Go to the gym 1x
+Run 2x

Reward (aka the important part): Lilly Pulitzer Thermal Mug! (If anyone can find it in "trippin and sippin" let me know!

What are your goals for this week?
Tweet them to me @ButtercupJordan with #BCJGoal

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Hello there. 

      You may have noticed that I have not blogged in a little bit. I have noticed this too! You also may have noticed that this post has no real point. I have noticed that too. As I'm writing this I really have no idea what to write about, so I'm just going to go with a classic what I'm loving Wednesday! 

+This Scarf. I got this scarf for Christmas from my aunt and just re-found it in my closet. I love the colors and how light it is! It's perfect for spring! (I'm going to insert a picture when I get home)

+Spring Break. I am SO EXCITED for spring break! I'm staying over at my cousins house friday and saturday night, and then my mom and I are leaving Monday morning to drive down to Kentucky! (If you didn't know, Kentucky is like my second home. My aunt lives there and we visit her all the time) While we're there, I plan on shopping, eating a lot of Zaxby's, eating a lot of Homemade Pie Kitchen, and Visiting University of Louisville, University of Kentucky, and Bellarmine University!

+The fact that It's raining today! I love the rain. I love the calm atmosphere that it creates. I love the way it looks beading down the windows. I love the noise it makes on your roof. I LOVE RAIN.

+Something I love a little more than rain is the warm weather that we experienced yesterday. I walked out of school yesterday with NO COAT ON and never felt the need to put one on. 50˚ weather, you can stay.

+I'm loving that I placed my first order from on Monday during their Birthday Sale. Stay posted on my instagram, and I'll be sure to include my purchases in an upcoming post!

+That news that I was talking about last week? That was that I WENT TO THE IMAGINE DRAGONS CONCERT LAST WEEK! It was so freaking amazing it probably merits its own post. Look forward to that.

Lenten Update #1

**The "Guest Post" Last week was from my lovely cousins rose who apparently didn't want to sign her name! Haha too funny!"**

Okay y'all. this is a serious accomplishment.

I have gone 1 whole week without a Diet Coke. Now, a year ago, this wouldn't have been much of an accomplishment at all, but after my recent brush with addict status ;) I never though I could do it! I kid, I kid. Only 39 more days to go! Granted, I have had some lemonade and sparkling lemonade, but I haven't had any actual soda, so I think I'm doing pretty well! #BCJDietCokeless

I've also managed to stay away from french fries for a week. If you know me in real life, you know this is quite the accomplishment. I'm fairly confident I can stay away from french fries for all of Lent!

I also attended Mass last Thursday (more on that tomorrow) so I'm sticking to all of my promises so far!

How is your Lenten Promise going?

**Also, I could have an extremely awesome and eventful thursday night this week, so please keep your fingers crossed for me that everything works out!

My Lenten Promise

Hey guys!

Today is Ash Wednesday in the Catholic church which signifies the beginning of the Lenten Season. During Lent, you typically make a sacrifice to signify the sacrifice that Jesus made for us. This year, I will be giving up pop *gasp* and trying my best to get to church every week.

I'm currently drinking my last Diet Coke for 40 days #BJCDietCokeless, and I'm fairly close to tears. But this is nothing as compared to Jesus sacrificing him self on the cross for us.

I'm also excited because I will be sponsoring my awesome cousin Annie in her Confirmation tomorrow night! What an honor! (Can't wait girlie!)

See y'all tomorrow!

With the lack of sunshine here, in Chicago, I thought I'd bring some sunshine into this blog via one of my favorite things: Sunglasses!

Which sunglasses are your favorite?
