Weekend Update

Happy friday you guys! This week was a quick one - with a snow day on Tuesday to break things up. I'm so excited for this weekend since my friends and I are trekking out to Wisp for a winter getaway. We're renting out a cabin and heading to the mountain tomorrow for some skiing and snowboarding. I'm usually one to go about three-four times a year, so I've been definitely missing it. It'll be a bitter one weather-wise but I'm needing a getaway from the city.

We made a mobile pact to unplug from all phones and internet for the weekend so things will be quiet on the blog-front. I'll be snapping pictures on my phone + DSLR so look for an update come early next week!

On another note this weekend also brings THON at Penn State (my alma mater). For those who don't know, THON is the largest student-run philanthropy in the world. All year long, Penn State students raise money to provide emotional and financial support to those affected by pediatric cancer; specifically through the Four Diamonds Fund. This weekend caps off the year's efforts with a 46-hour no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon known as THON weekend. Last year we raised $13.3 million dollars and we're looking to beat this again this year! (The reveal is on Sunday afternoon so check it out if you're interested!)

I have been involved with THON for all my four years at Penn State and love to spread the word of the amazing cause. These students give so much time and effort - all while creating one of the largest (and most fun) weekend-long dance parties!

Since I can't attend in-person, I decided to create my ultimate dance party playlist to keep the blood pumping all weekend. Click here to check out my playlist on Spotify and follow me if you want to hear more!


Crank the playlist, kick up your feet, and have a great weekend everyone!
