Salt Lake Bee's

Went to the Tuesday night game with Liz, Drew, Micah and crew! Baseball games are just the best. Always makes for such a wonderful and enjoyable evening. If only the Bee's were a little bit better... Wish i pictures. but i was expecting Liz to provide the camera :)

I want to go to lots more games. So hit me up :)

spring break

since byu wouldn't give me one...i just took it! i finished finals early (and missed the first week of spring classes) and flew straight to oakland international airport! it was so great to be in california again. cannot wait until the move is permanent! Some fun things i did while i was at home:

lost five pounds (this has never happened before. its usually gaining (at least) five pounds)
first spin class at club sport! ouch!
painted my room blue :)
bought a cute red couch to go in new blue room (linds found this steal of a deal at rick's picks in danville for $100...originally $900)
san francisco of course
hiked on mt. diablo
alix and ryan's reception at the spinnaker in sausalito (so beautiful!)
applied for jobs. anyone out there want to hire me? :)

it was a wonderful and productive ten days. i would include pictures...except i didn't take any :)

it gets better AFTER byu

its finals week...and its not even remotely as stressful as the rest of the semester has been. i must say, glad it's almost all over! i still have three tests to go, but i'm headed to CA (for ten days!) on wednesday--so nothing's going to get me down!

the past four months has felt like four years. i survived a move, a crazy ward, losing my bunny, 18 credits, and the crazy. what's next world?

but seriously now, it gets better after byu. i think about how hard things have been here over the years and can't wait for my life to start! i still haven't graduated, but i'm one semester closer! and that means only one more to go! who wants to give me job? ;)

city creek

is a beautiful shopping experience. and this is coming from a genuine shopaholic, mind you. spent a little time there on friday evening and was pleasantly surprised at the innovative and extensive alternative to the sad excuse for malls around here.

i'm happy to report that i only spent a total of $5.95 while i was there. a necessary purchase...needed some flip flops to replace the snow boots on my feet. was feeling a little silly on a such gorgeous night. loving this weather much?

the benefits of being on top of things

i'm not always on top of things like i should be, mostly because i like to avoid situations that give me anxiety, i'm lazy, and i'm just not that responsible.

lately, i've been trying really hard to keep up with all aspects of my life. this is more difficult than it might seem.

some benefits i've noticed?
my phone is always charged. i may have a dumb little flip phone (circa 2007) but at least it works! and instead of always dying on me, now it works just great :)

no voice mails. i hate voice mails. and one part of staying on top of things is answering my phone! which has greatly undermined the ability for voice mails to annoy me to death.

clean clothes! i actually do my laundry when i have enough for a load...instead of waiting for six loads and being forced to wear whatever embarrassing and colorful top i found in the back of my closet.

money in the bank. this doesn't always happen, so this is a wonderful thing.

i'm sure there are countless other benefits as well. since i'm just learning how to be a grown up, i've got a ways to go. but i think this is a good start, don't you?

professors are people too

twice this semester professors have broke down crying in front of lectures because of personal problems.

one miscarriage and one cancer.

terrible. life just never gets less complicated, does it?

we're gonna have a polka party

spent my three-day weekend at the huckleberry hotel! (that's my grandma's house)

i love staying there, but there's no internet, so i start to go crazy after a couple days.

some things i discovered? i am really good at freecell. seriously. i win almost every time.
also, i'm not so bad at architectural drawings. but after this week i've had enough drafting experience. i think i'll stick with event planning.
18 credits isn't that bad, as long as you're willing to give up your social life. and any other life.
country music isn't that bad, but nascar is.

my new apt.

didn't think i'd be moving to provo again :)

happy v day!

well, i'm zero for 23, sitting in class in fact, but at least i'm productive!

parking was easy to find, i guess nobody wants to be at the tanner building past 5pm on valentine's day.

let people know you love them today!

a few words about glasses.

i love mine. but wearing them in the winter? when are they NOT foggy? they fog up when i go outside, when i come inside, when i put them on, when i take them off. so annoying.

if your glasses are dirty, i'll probably offer to clean them for you. don't think i'm weird, controlling, crazy, or ocd. just accept my kindness and lets be on our way.

my roommate has really cool glasses.

you know you're going crazy when

you're taking the advice the dove chocolate wrapper gave you.

oh well, it's good advice.

thoughts on a sunday afternoon...

restaurant review: sea salt, salt lake city, utah
great food, terrible service. terrible. also, a little spensy.

girls should not wear black not-socks with white pumps when it's snowing. or ever?

how did my room get so messy?! better go clean it! maybe i'll post some pics of the new place soon!

a beautiful mess

that's what a friend called my life last night...and he's definitely right about the mess part.

it's been a rough start getting into 2012, and it's only getting rougher for now.

i said goodbye to stella on friday. saddest thing i've ever had to do. but he has a wonderful, loving family and two new best friends, a 4 year-old and a 7 year-old. i'll love you forever stel. you were my best friend!

i'm taking 18 credits this i crazy? the answer: yes. i'm petitioning to add a class--so keep your fingers crossed they say yes! when the petition goes through, i'll have 18 credits, plus a month's worth of make-up work. can't wait!

moving. leaving my lovely little apartment with my lovely roommates. also terribly sad about that, but sometimes life doesn't give us many other choices. at least the new place is...(nothing to say about that at the moment). right now half my stuff is here and half my stuff is there, and my mind is everywhere.

things i've left by the wayside; getting ready, wearing anything but sweats, mittens :(, calling you back (don't be offended), grocery shopping

real steel?

don't even think about it.

Who decides to plan a camping trip in Utah in January? We do. That's who.

This weekend I drove down to Moab with some friends to go camping at Arches! So cold. So so so cold.

Hiked, told stories, laughed, did the usual camping activities. Reminded me of camping with the fam when I was little.

My favorite? Waking up Sunday morning, climbing out of the crammed tent and going for a walk while watching the sun rise. Breathtakingly beautiful.

It's A Boy!

Yes, we found out a couple of days ago (after much googling and a small traumatic experience) that our sweet little baby bunny is a boy.

Am I the worst parent ever? Quite possibly. And yes, I'm a little stressed about it. But don't worry. It's not like Stella has had an identity crisis or anything. I doubt bunnies have the same gender role issues we love to give ourselves. He's just as happy as ever...and at least he can wear his new blue argyle sweater!

And yes, we're still calling him Stella.

2012. here's to hoping.

i was going to review my year, and maybe post a few goals for the next like everyone else in the blogging community. however, i got a few lines in and decided it was far too depressing to publish on the internet for all to see.

so instead, i am making no promises to myself or others for's to hoping it'll be better than 2011?
