  1. I love the pics :). Congratulations to Hannah on her NHS induction and good luck to you on finals!

    I love the biscotti- it looks so delicious (I always eat some with my coffee in the mornings too). That’s neat that you made the doggie cinnamon buns too.

  2. Ooh, I definitely just pinned that chocolate chip cookie recipe, because it would be PERFECT for around the holidays! I love homemade gifts like that. ๐Ÿ™‚ And I’ll definitely be making that vanilla biscotti recipe! As for that formula, my head hurts just looking at it, but I KNOW that you can do it!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I love homemade gifts, too! They’re always so meaningful to me! I’m actually working on a homemade Father’s Day gift right now and I can’t wait to blog about it, haha!

      Thank you for the encouragement for stats!! That means so much to me ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Ewww memorizing formulas=my life right now haha I would take one of those cinnamon buns in human form ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Those pencils were GOLD in high school My friends and I judged everyone based on their pencil preference ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I think I have heard of biscotti being called slices!! That’s so cool… it reminds me of the gobs vs. whoopie pies debate haha!

      I hope your wedding shower went well!!

  5. I didn’t know there were different levels of pencils! Now I want to try those out just to see, haha! Congrats to Hannah, by the way!

    1. Oh yeah, you’ve gotta try these pencils! They’re so awesome, haha. The eraser is amazing and they sharpen really well. Okay… I’m done talking about pencils haha. Thanks for the congrats to Hannah!!

  6. A comment for each of your five photos. ๐Ÿ™‚
    1. Congratulations to Hannah! By the way, in the UK the “NHS” has a very different meaning: it’s our National Health Service.
    2. Ooh, I’ve never heard of that brand of pencils. Another US/UK comparison: over here Staedtler is one of the most-used brands. Do you have them in the States?
    3. Aww, she is so adorable! I love spaniels.
    4. Ugh!
    5. Yum! My favourite! I Maple syrup, cinnamon and lemon juice are my preferred pancake toppings. That reminds me: I haven’t made pancakes in a while. Maybe I’ll make some this weekend!

    I hope studying for finals goes well. I’m currently in the middle of studying for my exams too: I have a Spanish oral next Friday and then the rest of them are are the beginning of June.

    1. I looked up the pencils you said and I think I have used them before! They seemed pretty similar to the ones I use! Also, I have never thought to put lemon juice on pancakes… that’s a fun idea!!

      I hope your Spanish oral goes well!!

      1. Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m sitting in one of the computer rooms on campus at the moment, working on my presentation. Well, I *should* be working but right now I’m procrastinating…..so bad!

        I hope your studying and wedding planning is going really well! You’re graduating this June, aren’t you?

  7. Bahaha love the arm rest photo, reminds me of something my cat would do. I love when pets sit like people. I get so easily distracted (usually by baking or eating) when I should be studying. HA!

    1. When I saw her using the arm rest I was like …. “What?! You are a human!” haha.

      I am the same way with studying, too! It’s so easy for me to want to baking or eat something… or just do anything besides study!
