dear future husband:

autumn is perfect for love.  all of the colors make you feel warm and cozy.  you wear sweaters and drink hot chocolate.  isn’t that just heavenly?

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.

bits of my weekend

this past weekend was jammed packed with family, general conference and fun!

friday: katherine and i road-tripped it down to st. george to watch my daddy and my uncles run the st. george marathon.  we ate about forty dum-dums, took only one bathroom break, and didn’t get a single ticket!  yay!

saturday: woke up from sleeping on a tiny couch- yes, my back is killing me. then, we went over to the finish line to see the band of brothers cross the line.  then, we “rushed” back home [rushing with people who just ran 26.2 miles as well as your grandparents is kinda hard] and we watched the last speaker of the morning session.  during the two hour break, katherine and i dyed my hair.  we then played and talked with family.  we watched the afternoon session.  and then, my grammy took katherine and i shopping with my aunt shelia.  then, all 21 of our group went to dinner.

the new hair color.  what do you guys think?

sunday: woke up again, after being curled up all night on a couch, watched the morning session of conference and took off for home.  it started raining our drive home which meant the remaining heat of summer is going away. yay! finally!  when i got back to provo, i bid my father farewell– i won’t being seeing him again until christmas.  it was jen’s b-day, so katie and i watched her open her presents, then we ate cupcakes, decorated our apt for halloween, and then partied it up with some friends.  we played “battle of the sexes”- yeah, the girls won.  [say what!] yeah, i know what the “green monster is.” be proud.

so, it was a fantastic weekend… but i could really use a good back massage.

come on fall!

what i WANT to be wearing.  image from toast.

ok, so we’re a few weeks into september now.  but what’s the weather like?  oh, i’ll tell you.  it’s 88 degrees today.  yes.  and tomorrow it’s going to be up to 90.  yeah.  come on fall. how am i supposed to wear my adorable sweaters- both cardigans and dresses- without you!?


just a craving

i know it’s summer. blah, blah, blah.  but i can’t wait for september.  cause, come september, it will be the beginning of the best season known to man: fall, or autumn if you want to sound really cool.

just look at these pictures and crave autumn as much as i do.

photos credits in order ********* (the second to last image is a good image of my dream house.) also, i can’t wait for my hair to grow out.
