nyc in photos

i've spent the last week bunking it up with amborambo in her apartment in new york. i'm so amazed by my sister and how well she knows the city after being here only a short while! her roommate is so much fun and her apartment is really really cute! i think she's going to have such a fun year filled with roof parties and strolls in central park- what most people could only dream of!
over the last week i've learned a few important things:

1. dont always assume the worst when you see bones on the sidewalk in harlem. they're just from the fried chicken store next door.
2. i have a weird smile in every picture taken. possibly just in everyday life too?
3. shopping day's are only momentarily interrupted with throwing up from food poisoning in the chipotle bathroom.
4. facetime is more fun when you're pulling faces and the nieces and nephews get to kiss you goodnight.
5. i miss pomegranate frozen yogurt more than diet coke and possibly my wardrobe.
6. i can't take pictures of people. of buildings. of flowers. of cute children. of anything really.
7. amber makes me laugh harder than anyone else- always at the worst times.

don't worry everyone. we took a few normal pictures for cathy. a few...

last night

i had a dream.

obviously, for some completely rational reason i flew home to ut for the day
i don't at all remember why i did that....

i do however remember thinking oh how wonderful now i can grab all those things i was wishing i had brought out here to dc with me!!!!

so quickly i ran around the house and gathered those ESSENTIALS:

-a pillow
-my silver heels
-zesta saltines

now if this dream proves nothing else, i must say i am clearly
an excellent packer.

just because.

oh this guy.


having this guy in town has been the absolute best.
he helps me with my math.
asks me to drive him to get burgers.
stays up late to watch movies in the basement.
cheers loud for the mavericks.
eats thai food for breakfast.
reminds everyone he's the favorite uncle.
makes me laugh with his magic tricks.

brad has always been an amazing example to me.

he always does his best to include everyone around him.
he's absolutely everybody's friend.
he is so quick to forgive and forget.
and never gives less than 100%

b. is the best brother.
i'm sad to see him go
