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?
