Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy day of love to you all! 

It’s a blizzard here in Iowa, the perfect weather for a snuggle sesh with my new giant teddy bear and cookie cake. I had the most perfect surprise at my sorority house door this morning, a couple of roses !!!! ❤ I felt like one of the girl’s on The Bachelor finding out they had a one-on-one date. They are sitting on my desk with a ballon from my best friend.

BROKE COLLEGE GIRL$$$$

(Decided to change it up a little today, no Wisdom Wednesday, come back for that next week!!)

Ok, so yes I am in college. It’s fun, amazing, best four years of my life…… but ask anyone and they will tell you I am ALWAYS broke. I live in a city full of adorable boutiques with the cutest funkiest clothes and I just cannot contain myself (although I’ve been doing better since one of my favorites closed down). Yes, I have a job (I hate the working life) but I still spend my money on things I a) do not need or b) I can eat/drink in 2 minutes.

For months I have been anxiously awaiting Anthropologie to open in Iowa. And last week they finally had their grand opening in Des Moines, Iowa at Jordan Creek Mall!! I was lucky enough to be invited to their private opening to check out the store before the public. Just like every Anthro store I have been in it is beautiful. I have actually been twice already and it has only been open 5 days 🙂

Better Yourself

Everyone starts off a new year by vowing to better themselves & change the way they have been behaving in the previous year. At times these goals seem farfetched as well as slightly out of reach. Maybe you want to lose 10 pounds, or maybe you want to start working out more, or maybe you just want to start the New Year off by being healthier (mind, body, & soul). But, what if you vowed to make someone else’s year better? What if, for this year you reached out & helped someone, or something in need.

Friday Favorites

Every Friday we will share with you our favorite looks, eats, places, products, things we love. Some fun finds that we can’t get away from. It may be something we found on Pinterest, something we are dying to buy or something we just love to have. Check it out every week from a different blonde.

TOMS

With our love for fashion and shopping we thought it would be fun to post about companies who help give back with each purchase! Throughout the next couple weeks we will share some of our favorite places and where and how they give back.

The first place I wanted to share with you has been a favorite of the blondes for years…TOMS shoes. With every purchase you make they help a person in need known as the One for One® project. Over the years they have grown from just a shoe company to sunglasses, bags, apparel, and accessories. There really is something for everyone! Check out my favorite shoes of the season and sunglasses!

A Quick Wrap-Up

2015 has come and gone, another year to pass us by. Can you believe it’s 2016?!

In 2015, Meredith and Caroline started Midwest Beach Babes.. for 2016 we decided to revamp our blog and add Hannah to the mix. What’s better than two sisters running a blog? Three, three is the number. So welcome to Three Blondes and a Blog. While you can look over our About Me section- we wanted to give everyone an idea of what this new (and improved) blog will bring, and what the heck we have been up to in 2016. (And what the heck we did in 2015.)
