Best Christmas Party of 2010

(all photos stolen from the fabulously talented Harper)

Harper made one of the best gifts i have ever received.
Its a book with our friends faces in it, BUT they are cut into three pieces to that you can trade eyes, noses, and mouths with each other. Genius i tell you, GENIUS! (and loads of fun)

Crafting 101

Hot glue guns are hot.
Ironing on the carpet WILL melt the carpet.
Needles will puncture skin.


And im not trying to be a girl or anything, but holy atlanta!
This vintage wedding dress is SO cute.
So much potential.

You know,

Its funny when someone tells you that they want what you have,
but their perception of what you have
is different than your perception of what you have.
so its almost like they want something, that you want also
but neither one of you have
but both wish you did....


These dudes (The Get Up Kids) will be in salt lake in February.
As will I.

oh and p.s. Idaho is crazy.



New Years

Boy-see State

We went to Boise (pronounced Boy-see).

I really like vacation.
It was a great time.
Ford let me do the things i wanted to do. Like eat at Goldys.
We even went to the old idaho penitentiary
I really wanted to go because the tv show Ghost Adventures went there.

It was great.
oh yeah.
and we watched Boise beat Fresno 51-0
it was cold but the boys made it onto ESPN a few times.

Dear, Dear, Dear.

Dear Electric Blanket,
Thank you for being the best invention
since 1928, when sliced bread was invented.
Yours truly,

Dear Heater That Hasn't Worked in Who knows how long,
Thank you for finally working today.
I am glad to know that i do not have to wear my winter
coat indoors any more.

Dear Snow,
I want to be your friend. I really do.
You look soft, and fluffy, and dare i say FUN?
Please be kind to me, and i will return the favor.

Dear Hair,
Please grow so I am not tempted to cut you
and then have to wait for you to grow all over again, to only
find my self back here, wishing you would grow.

Dear New Socks,
Thank you for being thick and "water" proof.
I love the feeling of putting you on for the first time.
Your Great,

Dear Get Up Kids,
Thank your for coming to Salt Lake in February 
so I have something to look forward to after school starts.

Dear Air Hockey, 
Thanks for being there. Even though I never win,
its good to know your always there.
All yours,

-I got a black eye. its pretty cool. i tried uploading a picture but it didnt work. maybe some other day.
-Last night i slept with mittens on. they are really thick mittens so it felt like i had oven mitts on all night.
-Our heat isnt working. and hasnt been for a while. I ve decided to invest in an electric blanket. are they expensive? i want to be warm,  but i dont want to be poor.
-I signed up for classes. Changing my major was such a good idea. I now get to take classes like "Parenting" and "Clothing Construction" and "Practical Homemaking"....! But I do have real classes like the History and Philosophy of Education and Educational Psychology. I think the semester will be balance when it comes to the "fun" classes verses the "hard" ones.
-I watched the Burbs for the first time in a long time, and i was reminded of how much i like it. Along with Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.
-It is currently 16 degrees and tomorrows high will be 33 degrees. uggggh!

Its baaaaack

It snowed ALL day today.

Last month we carved pumpkins:

And hung out 

Today it was sunny.
so i rode my bike.
i didnt wear sandals.
i really wish i would have worn sandals because i prob wont be able to in a long time.

I want my studio back.
And my king size bed.
And my down town life.
And my public transportation.
And my easy access to thrift stores.
And my french style cafes.

And i really want to go to Chicago.
And Des Moines.
And Boise.
And Lincoln.
And Merced.
And Springfield.
And Austin.
And Toledo.

im going to watch the office now.

Holy Cold.

This is what happens when its 40 degrees out side and just as cold in side because we have no control over the heat.
i ve been wearing gloves and a coat indoors the past few days.
i cant use the mouse pad thing on my computer while wearing gloves. the only solution was to cut the pointer finger off.
its so cold.

There are some things in life id really like to do. and there not huge or anything. there actually quite small. such as make carmel apples. play an xbox. climb R mountain. Go to Joe's on Saturdays. Go camping. Visit the city of Rigby Idaho. Learn how to play the bass guitar.  See a clown in real life. Go sledding for the fist time in my life. Visit Yellowstone and see ole faithful. Finish preparing my Relief Society lessons before Sunday... You know, things of this sort...

i think...

it would be fun to do something like this:

Except I have ALOT of clothes, so maybe it wouldnt be so much fun.
But I think it would encourage me to get ride of some stuff...


today i had a lot to say, but not words to say what i wanted to say.
so instead i lit a pumpkin spice candle
and read a book
and drank some peppermint tea
and ate a "fall spice" doughnut
and listened to Fruit Bats
and forgot about the things i wanted to say
but couldn't figure out how to say them.

p.s. you rock my world

I like you.

Listening to: James Taylor- Carolina In My Mind

And now, a reciting of one of my favourite books "I Like You" by Sandol Stoddard Warburg:

I like you
And I know why.
I like you because
You are a good person
To Like.
I like you because
When I tell you something special
You know it's special
And you remember it
A long long time.
You say remember when you told me something special
And both of us remember.
When I think something is important
You think it's important too.
We have good ideas.
When i say something funny
You laugh.
I think I'm funny and
You think I'm funny too.
I like you because
You know where I'm ticklish
And you don't tickle me there
Just a little tiny bit
But if you do then I know where to tickle you too.
You know how to be silly.
That's why I like you.
Boy are you ever silly.
I never met anybody sillier than me
      till i met you.
I like you because
You know when it's time to stop being silly.
Maybe day after tomorrow.
Maybe never.
Opps too late.
It's quarter past silly.
Sometimes we don't say a word
If I am a goofus on the roofus
Hollering my head off
You are one too.
That's because
You really like me.
You really like me
Don't you.
And I really like you back.
And you like me back.
And I like you back.
And that's the way we keep on going.
Every day.
And I like you because
When I am feeling sad
You don't always cheer me up right away.
Sometimes it is better to be sad.
I like you because
I dont't know why but
Everything that happens
Is nicer with you.
I can't remember when I didn't like you
It must have been lonesome then.
I like you because because because
I like you for so many reasons I can't remember.
On the fourth of July I like you because
It's the fourth of July.
On the fifth of July I like you too.
If we had some hats and some
Flags and some fire engines
We could be a HOLIDAY.
We could be a CELEBRATION.
We could be a WHOLE PARADE.
See what I mean?
I would go on choosing you.
And you would go on choosing me.
Over and over again.
That's how it would happen every time.
I don't know why.
I guess I don't know why I like you really.
Why do I like you?
I guess I just like you.
I guess I just like you.
Because I like you.

Kate & Leopold.

The past few days I felt like my life was turning into the movie Kate and Leopold. My water wasn't working. My cell phone broke. The Internet was down. My alarm clock went bazerk. I felt like all the luxuries of technology were failing me.
But no worries. I have water and internet now.
I want to go to this:

I am currently cell phone less and it feels so good.

Today I learned that people are a lot of work.

Also, I was reminded that I am an adult. 

I would just love to be friends with Kenneth in real life. I could really use a friend like him.

I just started season one of Pushing Daisies

Yes, it does sound like ive been watching a whole lot of tv via netflix. well, its because i have.
i havent been sleeping much and i can only read books for so long.Plus, since im not in school i need to save "activites" such as reading for the day time. I would feel so useless and bum like if my roommates saw me watching my computer all day). so yes, i have resorted to seasons. and  you know what? I am ok with it. 

The Great Gatsby is one of my all time favorite books, i don't want it ruined.

also, the phrase/term "in respect to" or "respectfully" 
I don't think i really understand what these mean.
I started taking a astronomy class last semester (ended up dropping it) but for the first week our text would always talk about "the sun in respect to the planets." Does this mean "in relation to?"
Somebody used this same term today. So in my head I inserted the phrase "in relation to" where "in respect to" was and the sentence didn't make sense anymore.
im so confused.
