general conference weekend

so, it’s general conference time, again.  i love it.  this general conference was really good.  a lot about family, marriage, and serving.  it was the church welfare’s 75th anniversary, and it was neat to hear so many people address what the church does for the world.  my boy had tickets for the conference center for saturday afternoon and sunday morning sessions.  so, we went to those.  then, he dropped me off at katherine and joe’s to watch sunday evening.  katherine made some delicious corn and leek filled peppers, with couscous and homemade cornbread [she’s such a chef.]

you can read the entire conference here, and these are some of my personal favorites: elder cook, president eyring, president monson [saturday afternoon especially], elder scott [always], elder holland [always- and especially if you are a non-member trying to understand what general conference is exactly]

sunday evening we went to my grandparents house for a little family home evening [boy drove up to meet us for that.]  it was great talking about the importance of family while being surrounded by family.

this week’s recap:
– i found what my internship is exactly.  i am a co-curator of a warhol and murakami exhibit coming out sometime in august.  i helped choose the pieces for that on friday. [so cool!]
– weather was awesome all week, until sunday [when it snowed]
– i am awesome at “just dance” [the wii dancing game]; i am only so-so at the kinnekt dancing game
– i made a quiche [so good] and chocolate and m&m cookies  [see pictures below]
– three more weeks of school [but only two more weeks of classes]

happy friday folks.

this is the song of my day.

tonight is sarah’s birthday party. it’s “hipster” style themed.  we’re dressing up, talking about existentialism, and listening to obscure music. it’s going to be awesome. be prepared for pictures of cupcakes, finger mustaches, and boys in cardigans.

tomorrow night my stake is having a luau.  i’m dressing up as a tacky tourist.  it’s going to be awesome.

hello again!

sorry i’ve been m.i.a the past few days… i don’t think i’m doing anything fun blog worthy. jen and i are on track for our half-marathon.  we ran eight miles on saturday, and it felt great! i keep falling asleep with a smile on my face… [it could be thanks to a certain boy, or it could just be because life is awesome!]

here are some links that i am currently loving:

this outfit– minus the coffee, replaced with tea
these posters
this clothing line
this outfit
this shirt and sweater
these sweater boots (aka slippers)
this “visual life”: i love what he says about the internet being the “virtual park bench”. so true.

the happenings

this semester is over! [cue hallelujah chorus]

to celebrate, you can read about our girl’s night up to temple square from these two buddies of mine: ahlin & sarah.  here are some of fritz’s shots.

i love sweet potato fries!

currently i am up in snowy midway.  it’s magical, for lack of a better word. we’re hanging out with family, including this lovely cousin of mine and her two adorable twins.  [emmerson really likes me]
