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!

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.

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]

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.
