festival of colors! [sans photos] and new resolutions

i ended up going to festival of colors yesterday.  there’s a huge krishna temple in spanish fork, and every year they have a color throwing to celebrate holi… a krishna holiday [i think]. i don’t much about the holiday, all i know is you dress in all white, get scented/colored chalk, and throw it on people. it was way fun.  i went with boy, his siblings, and a couple of friends from my old ward.  there were some hilarious times- mostly between us and children [yes, seven or under].

sorry i don’t have any pictures, yet.  there all on boy’s camera.  but there were some good ones. trust me.

last night i went emergency grocery shopping with boy for the things he needs today: cereal, frozen pizza and pringles. [wow. such a guy.] it made me remember how sad it is to not be able to cook.  so, i decided today that i am going to have a sunday dinner, every sunday, where i make something for reals. so far, i have compiled recipes for mediterranean risotto, my aunt’s yummy pasta salad, sausage, chard and lemon lasagna, gruyere and parmesan souffle, backed rigatoni with tiny meatballs, quiche lorraine and chicken tortilla soup. sounds delicious right? i also want to bake desserts that i have never tried- pies, cakes, fudge, chocolate dipped cookies.

so here’s to a colorful weekend and a delicious future!

dc: day 4

final day:
– 6. something run (i misjudged the distance, and ended up running a little more than a mile over what i was supposed to)
– 4-D ultra sound with laura and peter (i love babies!)
– grocery shopping at trader joes and whole foods (aka stocking up on joe-joes)
– making marshmellows and hot chocolate on sticks
– watching millionaire matchmaker (yes!)
– dinner at open kitchen (yummy lamb burger!)
– monopoly (again, i might’ve become addicted)
– drinking our hot chocolate with marshmellows while watching “locked up” (some prison reality show)
– packing
– looking at baby clothes (zara has some adorable baby stuff.  i want to start stocking up)

another week, another weekend

sorry guys.  i feel like i’m only blogging after the weekend… don’t know why.  i guess college life is a lot more boring than when i lived at home.

this weekend wasn’t too exciting.

friday: i walked around campus looking legit and taking pictures of autumn.  trammel, jen and i went up to sandy for chipotle.  (it was like my second time having it, but dang, it’s good stuff).  then trammel’s roommates bennett and tanner joined us at our apartment to make sugar cookies.  i showed them this and then this.  their other roommate alec came over with his bud jordan.  then kye joined us.  we just hung out and stuff.  it was a blast.  pictures below.

saturday:  the football game.  i’m not a huge “Y” fan, but i like going and hanging out with friends. oh, and we were on the front row.  right behind the end zone.  say what? afterwards, we stayed and volunteered to help a buddy clean up the stadium.  gross, gross, gross.  people are gross.  i will never leave anything (half eaten or not) behind at a stadium.  yuck.  then, i took a shower, ignored the two miler i was supposed to do, and went on to study german. (yuck) photos below.

sunday: a much needed extra hour of sleep thanks to the end of day lights savings. church.  a desire to bake resulting in a no-bake peanut butter/chocolate/oat bar.  watching chitty chitty bang bang with friends and eating all of said no-bake delight.

monday: (yea, i know it’s not the weekend, but whatever)  rain, which made me miss home- rainy ol’ london.  grocery shopping thanks to urges to bake all sorts of things (peanut brittle, pepermint bark, cinammon rolls).  i swear it was bring “attractive man shopping day”.  i saw at least twenty VERY good looking men today.  dang.  if only i had put on make up.
