turkey love.

this year i had my favorite thanksgiving.
maybe its because now that the family is spread apart, it's so much better when we cometogether..
or maybe it's because i got a balance bracelet.

..put a 12 foot inflatable santa in the yard during a blizzard warning to prank the mother. check.
..stay up till two making doughnuts into turkeys [aka being martha stewarts moral support/slave] check.
..see a mexican pull out a knife in walmarts DVD section on black friday. check.
..laugh so hard i cry during a michael jackson tribute that turns out to be a childrens dance recital. check. melted m&m's while the byu game eats my heart. check.
..make angry birds and modern family habitual. check.
..wish it would never end. check.

a groundbreaking

new plan.
every sunday i'm going to take a picture of myself.
that way i wont be in my weekly predicament, crossing my fingers, putting on a skirt i'm pretty sure i didn't wear last week...but your guess is as good as mine.
6 days of my life may as well be 6 years.

so just to make up for last week [prior to my genius idea]...

glitter tights.
black dress.
grey pumps.
green scarf.
are a NO.GO. tomorrow

whatever will i do when i have real problems to deal with?

hp happened

it happened twice in 14 hours actually. ridiculous? some might say yes.
i am one of those someones.

a group of 20 of us [it should probably be mentioned none of us were under 20] dressed up and had a harry potter themed dinner *i made some straight up legit butter beer i might add. we then sat in the theater for hours and hours through too many ridiculous previews before we reached our 2 1/2 hours of pure bliss. i laughed, i cried, i drank my weight in caffeine so i wouldn't blink for too long and then i did it all over again after a short 'nap'
of a nights sleep.

hp happened and i cannot wait for it to happen again.

i have so many people in my life who make me feel invaluable.

i want to be someone like that- someone who makes people realize their potential and feel invaluable.

because everyone is invaluable. and we're all amazing.
and little reminders of that make us feel less. scared.

monday maybes

today was one of those days... i'm now wondering why i wore socks with sperry's and an old sweatshirt no one will claim from home.

maybe i want a puppy. maybe i'm addicted to diet coke. maybe i need to channel my efforts to taking care of somebody other than myself. maybe i'll stop going to zupas. maybe i'll bust out my running shoes. maybe i'll last till thanksgiving break. maybe i'll start a tumblr.

mondays are always filled with maybes

[...and history of creativity, which is honestly the death of me]

today i was told an 'omen' that good things are going to happen to me.
k cool.
hurry up omen.

today i read this and took a deep breath, "God has designed this mortal existence to require nearly constant exertion. by work we sustain and enrich life. it enables us to survive the disappointments and tragedies of the mortal experience. hard-earned achievement brings a sense of self-worth. work builds and refines character, creates beauty, and is the instrument of our service to one another and to God." thank you conference.

today i realized if something is important enough we will make time for it and if it's not--we wont.

caferio. sister. morgans blessing. brother. friends wedding. byubball. tswift. birthdays. christmas lights. sunshine. conan. ice cream. LOVIN it.

dreaming that i could

they say you know when you know
i dont know

When he's the one
I'll come undone
and my world will stop spinning.

cause i know you're out there.
its a crazy idea that you were made
perfectly. for. me.

this rain is making me want to put on sweats, microwave some m&m's* lay by a fire, and watch the greatest movie in the world**
and it's also making me want to punch my fist through a wall.

i live on university avenue and this rain makes even a prius sound like a forklift.
and way too many people in this happy valley start driving before 10am. [what is that about?]
not happening.

*check yourself before you wreck yourself... no, seriously try this.
**undecided/extremely rash statement.


there are very few things i hate more than arts and crafts....
1. arts and crafts required in college.

alright, so there is one thing i hate more than arts and crafts.

love in

new blog list.
new love.

i straight up caught my desk on fire last night.

all i can say is thank you to working smoke detectors. and no thank you to faulty candles.
in my defense, i was just getting in the christmas spirit.

also in my defense, it was only one candle. so i wasn't being outrageous or anything.

[despite the burn on my neck, the WORST part of the story is that i COVERED my boots in wax and ash and they're RUINED. rude.]

go halloween.
it always was the worst holiday.
