Weekly Wrap Up

Weekly Wrap Up #42 (week in my life + ootw)

Woohoo, another week is over and Fall is officially in full swing which makes me feel like the happiest girl in the world. I feel like I’m stuck in a routine of school, cheer, three hours of homework, take a second to breathe, go to sleep, wake up and do it all over again. I’ve been reminding myself lately that the whole reason why I started Weekly Wrap Ups was so I didn’t feel this way. The point was to find something exciting, different, and happy about each day. This coming week I really want to focus on that; high school is a huge part of my life and grades are important but so am I, and if that means taking ten minutes out of my night to read the Bible or waking up ten minutes early to crank the tunes while getting ready then so be it. Gosh I love life and am so thankful for the abundance of love that is around me. Remember to take a deep breath because life is so worth it and so full of everything if you open your eyes to it. I hope you all like this week’s outfits and posts, I’m off to go study for AP Government (talk about exciting!!). Have a wonderful week guys, love you all endlessly. With love, McKenz.

If you’re new to styledbymckenz, Weekly Wrap Ups are where I share a week in my life as well as my outfits of the week! This week has been so chaotic but it feels so good to be back in school and in a routine once again. Between picture day, cheer practice everyday, our first football game, and Labor Day weekend; this feels like one of the most eventful and exciting weeks of the year. On top of that, although it’s been almost 90 degrees everyday, Fall is nearing and it brings such a smile to my face knowing that. I really hope you all enjoyed, thank you so much for your endless love and support. You all mean the world to me. Let me know how your week went in the comments! With love, McKenz

Happy Sunday everyone! I am so incredibly happy to say that I have over 15o of you reading my blog and 500 0f you following me on Instagram @StyledByMcKenz. I am so thankful for all of you and your never ending support. This week was such a blogging success to  say the least. Despite the crappy weather, I’m still managing to wear some super cute outfits. You can tell just by the looks of things that I’m super into white, black, and distressed denim recently.

Finding Yourself

The Best Days With You

I can’t seem to put my thoughts into words but the overwhelming amount of happiness you guys bring me is enough to make me sit here and try.  The happiest days I’ve spent are with you. Can’t even begin to thank you all for the smiles you bring me even when you’re not with me. You guys make my life feel full. I tried to capture the essence of these moments together, but it’ll never be the same.

2:00 PM- Hiking up the Mountain to see the view. Not sure our little adventure would have been as fun if it wasn’t for the porta-potties, rainy trip down, Jeanie and I taking fake pics with Tyler, and not being able to find the car. Shoutout to you GB for capturing these moments of us all together, wouldn’t want these days to be any other way.

4:30 PM- By far my favorite picture of the day is the one of me and Garrett on the left. I can feel how genuine my smile was just by looking at that picture. Btw thanks for matching with me Madison, you’ll always rock my world. Sorry Colby, you didn’t make the cut in our squad basketball pic. You’ll get ’em next time.

8:00 PM- Dinner time in the Morgan Household consists of frozen Eggo Waffles and three different prayers before eating  (courtsey of Jeanie, Cedric, and myself.). So happy Tyler joined us at nine because everything’s funnier when he’s around. Wouldn’t be a normal day without an eyebrow picture so Tyler and Madison joined in. Thanks for checking my blog Instagram with me Dustin. And don’t worry GB we missed you and wished you could’ve joined us tonight. We never did catch the final score of the basketball game we were watching but that’s okay because our day together went down in history, not the game.

Laughing so hard your stomach aches. Spitting out jokes so fast your breath starts to shorten. Tearing up because the width of your smile doesn’t seem to lessen. If I could bottle up these feelings to keep them forever I would, but I guess that’s what memories are for. I’ve always said ‘life’s too short to be anything but happy’ and somehow you all have showed me what this means in its entirety. You all have given me so much to be thankful for, so much to love, and so may reasons to be happy. I feel like I’m making the memories I’ll think of as I’m driving home from a stressful day at work with my kids in the back seats rambling about their days as I smile off in the distance thinking of the times I once wished would last forever, and hoping you all are doing well. I don’t know what the future holds, but I hope you guys never leave it. With a whole lot of love, McKenz.

Weekly Wrap Up #9

Happy Sunday everybody. I’m so amazed at how fast February went by and am so excited to see what March will have in store. I’m hoping it will bring some warmer temperatures and that we can leave the snow in February. This week was packed full of cheer events and a bunch of new clothing item. I got to spend time with my friends everyday this week and went to church this morning where we had a very eye opening service. I can’t thank you all enough for the endless love and support and helping me reach 380 followers on Instagram. This week it has really hit me that life is far too short to be anything but happy.
