Back from London

Hello blogging world!

I know I haven't posted anything in forever but I do have a good excuse- I was in England and France again! I know, I didn't say on here, I was pretty busy with school and getting ready to leave.

My mom and I were gone for 3 weeks and we got back late Wednesday night. I miss it so much already!

It's kind of like my second home, I just love it there. :)

Will & I 

I'll post more later.

Macy's Flower Show

Yesterday my mom and took a little trip into Minneapolis for an orchestra concert and after lunch at Panera we decided to check out Macy's Flower show.  It was really cool, and smelled so good!  Kind of like a taste of spring when it's still a little cold out. 

I'm waiting for warmer weather so I can see this stuff outside my window!
We've hit a little cold patch... Here's hoping it gets as warm as they say it's supposed to be this weekend!

The Hunger Games: Movie

Okay, so if you haven't picked up on my love of the Hunger Games, you either must not read my blog, or not follow me on Twitter (and if you do follow me on Twitter, I'm sure the fangirly tweets will die down eventually.)

Anyways, last weekend I obvs went to see the midnight showing with my bff Jessie.
After laughing and sighing I came out of the theater overwhelmed. At first I was concerned about the things they left out, but then I realized, they just can't add it all.

So overall, I loved it. It followed the book pretty closely, but mostly, it was just good.
Probably the biggest problem I had with it, was that they added swear words. Whattt?
 I mean, come on. There weren't any in all the books. That just seems pretty pointless.

So basically, I reallyreally want to see it again. This week.

Read this blog! It's by the Peeta account on Twitter. This really helped me to understand some things about the movie, so Jessie make sure you read this!

Last Weekend.

Last weekend, Jessie came over.

We went out to eat with my visiting uncle Tom from Florida, my aunt Perky (his sister) and uncle Bruce. I have such a good family.

We watched Humphrey Bogart movies. Casablanca (my first time seeing it!) and Sabrina.

I've also decided Humphrey is one of the most handsome actors ever. I mean, he even wears a trench coat. So classy.

Jessie and I brought Emily lunch at work.

Emily and I wore green. Jessie did not. Emily pinched her.

We made little cheeseburger sliders from The Pioneer Woman's new cookbook. Let's just say we all died. And then came back to life to eat the rest.

We did a photo shoot.

We ate lots of strawberries. And croissants.

Took a road trip into town and had ice cream from DQ.

Went to church, and then out to lunch with Jessie afterwards. Stuffed paper in her keychain money holder. She wasn't amused. But she still loves me. And Emily.
Hey, Jessie, go check it right now! Ha ha ha...

Anyways, it was a very good weekend. I feel so lucky to have such a wonderful family.

May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor

This last weekend was busy, but really fun. To start things off right, Friday night was the 4th annual Bitterfest. Where girls (single or not) get together to be bitter about men on (or in this case around) Valentine's Day. We each had to pick a celeb to be our ex and make up a funny or sad story about our "relationship". Needless to say, it was a fab night, and it's safe to say I'll be back next year. :) Then to top it all off, we went hot tubbin'! Yes, it was great.

Then Saturday came, and I went spring shopping with my mom. Maybe it's a bit early, but I needed some springy type things. Jessie came over in the afternoon and we finally went to see The Vow. We had tried last weekend, but the theater sold out of tickets.

Saturday night, we started Downton Abbey. I know I had heard good reviews, but I wasn't prepared for that much amazing-ness! I really like it, and I can't wait to see what season 2 has in store. We have one or two episodes left of season 1.
But I have to say, probably the major highlight for my Saturday was getting my beloved HG sweatshirt in the mail. I was literally jumping up and down. Ha ha! (see photo below)

Today, we went to church, and then out to lunch with my grandma. After that, we went to my great aunts house where she generously gave us all things of my late great uncles. He was very interested in collecting things and photography. So Emily and I got 4 of his old (one of them is a Jr. Brownie!) cameras. So neat! He also had lots of coins and patches from all the NASA space missions.

Anywho, it was a really good day and weekend.
Tomorrow's Monday. But I'll think about that tomorrow.

 I was a little bit excited. And maybe a little cold, too.

 This is Emily's and my celeb photos. She had Zac (left) and I had Josh. Obvs. He's Peeta. 
 My sweatshirt. How awesome is that? I don't think I'll be taking it off anytime soon. It's cozy.
Jessie and I leaving for church. Aww :)

Sweet 16

So I know this post is long overdue. I mean, my birthday was on the 29th. Oh well. 
Anywho, here's how she went down.

 Goofing off (as usual). We have too much fun with Jessie.

 An awesome Hot Tools curling iron. I mean come one, it's even gold! 

Blowing out the candle. We didn't have 16. Happy 1st birthday to me! Ha ha

After I got home from SD, we celebrated by inviting Jessie (of course), and family members over. My mom made my cake, and it was delish. I was rather disappointed there was only one piece left over the next day.

Also not pictured, my new Juicy purse (!!!!) and Lucky flats. I have the best mom and dad. And the best friends.

Happy Hearts Day

I'm just celebrating by drinking water from my Anthro "L" mug. And eating coconut M&M's.
That's pretty much how tonight is going down.
In other news, my mom is coming home! I actually have dinner ready, but her flight was delayed without my knowing for an hour. So here it sits until she and Emily (who is picking her up) get home.

Anywho, hope you V-day is fab! (I always think of Lover Come Back when it's Valentines day. V day is coming! Ha ha)


Also listening to Adele. Yep, my night would be complete, but I really want my mom home. And I wouldn't mind some kombucha either.
