i may or may not be attempting this recipe tonight.

she tells it so well; even though she can DEF pull it off, why do we try?
this post about best friends is making me miss mine terribly.
this post series may be the reason i still have hope in the world.
kids say the darndest things.
does anyone else feel like this when they shop for unmentionables?
she could pack my lunches, if she wanted to.

this lady's instagram is making me happy this week.
these photos make me want to go out and partake of life.
Julia is my woman crush.
I would like to personally/publicly congratulate this lady on her new business!! show her some love people!
we did this last night. they just have better pictures. (even if they are earlier..in a different location.)
her sense of style inspires me to dress like a lady. at least in my head.
i like downtown so much that i walked through it twice in one day. cedar just opened a cheapo theater. matinee for $2? i'll take it. & i think my wallet is scared that we live right across the street from a Great Harvest Bread Co.
after being away for so long, i can't explain how good it is to be reunited with nick again!
we celebrated with a trip for burgers & fries.
our home is quaint, small & intimate. there are lots of windows & a bathroom cute enough to put in a magazine. (too cute to settle for the any of the walmart shower curtains.)
downsizing is fun, and i'm too exhausted & pleased to be here that boxes remain unopened; harry potter marathons are watched & "it can wait until tomorrow."
i listened to the entire "Queen Greatest Hits" CD on the way here & unashamedly knew every word.
the fact that we are only 6 hours from the beach makes me anxious for salty water & sandy feet.
hikes will be hiked, downtown will be explored & the outside will be lived in.
the gym will be used, the car will not. even when i don't know where anything is down here.
i look forward to stargazing on the roof, having permanently smokey clothes from bonfires with friends & learning to take a puppy out many times a day when we live on the third floor.
here's to apartment living & a new adventure!
if there was any a time that i've felt like him, today would be that day. when he left the office i cried and cried and then i got over it.
that's how i feel today. everyone keeps coming into my office and saying goodbye and how much they'll miss me and giving me hugs and advice. like, when did i deserve all of this?
i guess i have been here for almost a year and a half already, but still.
i tell some people that today's my last day, and some people i still say "see you next week!" because i can't bear the thought of leaving. i'm relieved that i'll never have to do endless reports and scanning and dealing with people who are less than kind. trust me, i am. i wish i would have left a day early though, and not told anyone. then i wouldn't have to say goodbye to so many people.
my exit probably won't be grandeur. i'll most likely not turn around and see my coworkers working without me, not knowing that i would never return. i won't stand in the elevator with a half-smile and a tear in my eye. or maybe i will for dramatic effect. then i'll laugh at myself and make sure nobody was looking.
after finals tonight, i'm going to snuggle in a blanket, dream of nick & sleep the night away. when i wake up, it's off to Cedar city and our new adventure. EX-CITE-ED!
today i'm missing my partner in crime. i still have a week of school & work, so Nick moved into our new apartment over the weekend without me & i moved into my parents'. i keep telling myself it's only a week & it will fly by quickly, but that's still 7 whole days without that man of mine. plus, i can't wait to decorate our new apartment! so many ideas....
today i am baby hungry. cute babies, chubby babies, baby blessings, double babies, baby clothes & babies that coo when you smile at them. i want it. i want it all.
today i'm over excited for cedar city. i can't wait to be on my old stomping grounds again & take advantage of the gym. (seriously though, my legs & arms took a beating moving all those stupid boxes up and down the stairs. i don't know if my biceps will ever return to normal) on a side note...
dear body: i'm sorry. in the next two weeks i
promise hope to 1. work you out so you aren't so dang wimpy anymore. 2. take all of my vitamins. 3. spend more time outside hiking & working on that tan.
today i'm ready to be done with school. is it possible to fit a whole summer into a 2 week time span? i don't know, but i'm willing to try!
today i'm seriously considering growing out my hair & being blonde. that's how nick likes it.
today i am dying, DYING, to do something creative with this space. i'm getting antsy & can't take it. long live the fickle mind!
