a quote we should all live by.

"there is more to life than increasing its speed."

Monday, March 29, 2010


its been a pretty awesome couple of weeks.
spring break was good to me, but almost too good.
lately all i've been doing is enjoying the sunshine.
i've had a really hard time getting back into the swing of things: school, work, real life.
and despite the fact that i've spent more time in the sun
then behind a book or in the library...
it's been totally worth it.

recently i've had several trampoline adventures.
my favorite.

went out to eat at boston's

enjoyed every minute of my fat and lazy cat
[it's a pretty big problem]

found the clothes i'm going to dress my future children in
at citrus and sage in logan.

sidewalk chalk? yes please.

got to spend time with mi familia over the weekend,
including holding, feeding, rocking, and kissing the CRAP
out of my adorable niece grace. 

it was a good week.

celebrate spring!

this weekend my friends and i celebrated spring
at the hare krishna holi festival in spanish fork.
it is held at the hare krishna temple
and everyone throws colored chalk in the air at the same moment...creating this:

so intense!
needless to say, my friends and i had a blast
and i am so happy spring is here.
the llamas at the temple.
i want one.

the group before the throwing of the colors.
ryan, emily, hannah, aaron, me & soren!

happy music!

i am not one to obsess over celebrities.
in fact, i find it kind of stupid.
except for this one woman who is seriously beautiful. how can you not obsess over her?!
she is amazing!
zooey deschanel is fabulous in her movies [500 days of summer, elf, yes man, bridge to terabithia, etc]
i love her even more in her band she & him. give it a listen!
happy friday.

global village and books of yesterday.

two of my favorite places in logan are:
global village

books of yesterday!

they are both so great.
global village is a volunteer-run store that is heavy on fair trade and art from around the world.
there are bags, bracelets, headbands, crafts, wall hangings... from all over the world.
just yesterday i bought a bracelet from guatemala.

books of yesterday is a two-story antique book/movie shop.

you could probably find a book on just about anything here.
it's lovely.

can you believe it??

health care passed!

i'm still trying to figure out what all of this means. but i do know that it is expected to be "historic".
today is a good day.

first day of spring

winter is officially OVER!
nothing has made me this happy in a LONG time.
i can't wait for flowers, sunshine, shorts, the smell of mowed grass, the last day of school, jumping on trampolines, hiking...
oh the adventures that will commence.
today is the first day of spring. and i am ever so excited for the change in seasons.
i can't wait to go to bear lake...

and hike the wind caves.

camping at pine view and spending the day on the lake.

adventures with bubba.

first day of spring was spent hiking with friends.
barbeque this evening.
second day of spring will consist of learning to rock climb.
wish me luck!

oh copeland.

Maybe I fell too fast
Maybe I pushed you away
Now you're gone and I'm afraid
That you're never coming back this way again

current obsessions.

band: the acorn
album: glory hope mountain
check out: their song "hold your breath"
reminds me of: the shins, ben kweller-esque awesomeness.

band: beirut
album: the flying club cup
reminds me of: grizzly bear, sufjan stevens, iron & wine

band: neon indian
album: psychic chasms
check out: their song deadbeat summer. it is FABULOUS.
reminds me of: a cooler version of MGMT.

"one good thing about music; when it hits you, you feel no pain. so hit me with music."

Highlight from the weekend: Audrey's birthday party.

we are rockstars. have a lovely day!

guilty pleasure.

a lot of people don't know this about me...but i have a pretty ridiculous guilty pleasure. and this amazing woman is now releasing her own clothing line.
go amy!
while this woman gets a lot of crap for her ridiculousness [and it is pretty ridiculous], she is so so talented. a friend introduced me to amy winehouse last year and since then i have been completely converted to her jazz. check out tears dry on their own and stronger than me. or if you're in the mood for slower, cool jazz, give there is no greater love a listen.
i can't wait for her clothing line to come out.. it is possible i will order them all the way from the UK.
happy friday!!!

i'm blonde!

it's true.
i've given up on brunette in celebration of springtime. plus, i've missed being blonde. i've missed it very very much.
[pardon my vanity]


sometimes i wait to flip the month on my calendar.
somehow, i hope it will stop time just long enough for me to catch my breath.

spring break = sadness.

emily is leaving me to go to costa rica.

hannah gets to go to lake tahoe
[where i was supposed to go]
and now she is going. without me.

i get to stay and work.
and be bored of logan.
and kaysville.
oh well, i suppose. there are many great people staying behind to keep me company.
