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.

just close your eyes

Hey everyone!

I'm back from my grand adventure, and if you follow me on twitter, you know it was indeed an adventure.

I have to admit, although I didn't write about it on here, I was very nervous about the whole thing. I'd never been away from home by myself for two weeks (please note, I was not all by myself. I took this trip with my aunt and uncle). And I'd never had to work for two weeks straight (I did get one day off- it was wonderful!)

I have to say, it was one of the best things I've ever done. Even though I wanted to give up several times & just go home.
I missed my mom. I missed Lacey. I missed my bed.
I knew I wanted to finish strong, and I knew I'd be so proud of myself when I was done, so I decided to get tough. And now, I can honestly say, I want to go back, which is pretty big considering how much I was wishing I could stay home. I had a pretty great time.

My friends mom was asking how I felt about my mom being able to go to Nevada and my sister being able to go to Denver when all I got to go to was Rapid City. I told her is was no problem! There are a lot of cute cowboys out there, you see. ;)

Example A: Tuf Cooper. World champion cowboy. Andddd he's a Christian! Yay! (you may be able to see "Jesus" stitched into his collar.) I'm a fan.

I guess I also forgot how beautiful South Dakota is. I mean, I want to live there now! So awesome.

Jim (our rep and great friend) took me to Mount Rushmore on my day off. He was so incredibly kind to me, he even bought my some GT's kombucha when I was sick.

I'll post about my birthday later, which we celebrated after I got home. :)
