So… I know I’ve been pretty MIA lately, I know. Deepest apologies. How about I make up for it by posting the last 10 pictures I’ve taken with the Vignette app on my phone? Deal? I’ll start with the most recent.
Um… HELLO why didn’t anyone tell me there is a Jimmy John’s right by my work? I discovered it on my way back from watching a recording of a vaginal birth and a c-section birth with a bunch of high schoolers. Cross THAT one off the bucket list.
On Tuesday, Jared and I went to the Carl Block exhibit at BYU. I snuck this picture during the drive down. The exhibit was incredible, touching, faith building, awe-inspiring. I loved it. And I loved that Jared and I can do things like that together!
Haha, this picture makes me laugh! I was naughty and took it during the rest hymn at church last Sunday. It’s really blurry because I was laughing when I tried to sneak it. You see, Jordan (left), and Chase (second from left) refused to sing. I kept poking them and tugging at my ear to show that I wanted them to sing louder. Jordan obliged, Chase did not. Oh, and hi Michelle! Love that girl.
Last Saturday Jared and I went to the Real game… it was FREEZING but SO MUCH FUN! Real played LA Galaxy (that Beckham dude plays for them) and apparently our 4-1 win was a big deal. I decided soccer games are awesomely rowdy with glitter, confetti, streamers, drums and chants. Just my style.
DOUBLE RAINBOW ALL THE WAY!!! What does it mean?? Okay, it was a single rainbow, but still.
Hold the press. Aren’t my new curtains STELLAR? Got the drapes from IKEA for like $15 for two. Then I had to jazz them up, so I did! I have to say, they look much more adorable now, cause they are tied, but you kinda get the idea here. Oh, and I have given that sad plant a hair cut since I took this pic, so it doesn’t have brown tips anymore. In related news, these curtains deserve their own post. I’ll do that.
Okay… I’m cheating a little. Here is a closer look at the fabric band I sewed on (wait, my mom sewed, but I cut them all!). This doesn’t count as one of my pics, okay? It’s my bloggy I do what I want!
I work at an awesome fabric store a couplefew (that’s a word, right?) days a week. This is an accidental picture from work. I kept it cause I think it’s kind of awesome.
Pretty snow! Can I just say I get suuuuuper annoyed when people complain about snow in March? It’s MARCH people! I’m pretty sure March is still winter… annnnnd I’m sure if I’m wrong, someone will tell me. Anyway, I love snow. I think it’s beautiful. As Jared would say “Tons of new freshie stashes up in the mountains to rip!”
My cute friend Sig deep conditioned my hair the other week. I posted this picture on the good old Facebook with the caption “To infinity, and beyond!” Facebook showed the loved.
There you have it! Don’t say I never gave you anything.
P.S. It’s fried eggs, fried eggs!!!
I won tickets in the Mormon Lottery (AKA the drawing for Mormon Tabernacle Chior Christmas concert tickets). They were for the Sunday morning Music and the Spoken word show, so last Sunday morning my mom, dad, brother Mike and I headed down to SLC in the early morning hours. We heard we should be early so our seats wouldn’t be given away so… early we were. Early enough, in fact, to stand outside for almost an hour. In the pouring rain. Good thing I was a girl scout (that was a lie) and came prepared with an umbrella. One. Umbrella. My mom, dad, brother Mike and I huddled under my one umbrella and tried to stay as dry as four adults could possibly stay under one umbrella. Oh, and did I mention I was super sick? I sounded like a frog-man hybrid. I don’t know why I just told you that, but I did. So there we were huddling and laughing and trying to keep our spirits up when I got a brilliant idea. I whipped out my phone and downloaded “Umbrella” by Rhiana and began to play it. Without hesitation… my mom, dad and brother Mike and I all started dancing. Under my one umbrella. Early Sunday morning. Waiting in line for the Mormon Tabernacle Christmas Concert.
I love my family.
This is a really bad cell phone pic of the moment.
I wanted to post the music video for that song, but Rhiana is wearing nothing but silver paint for half of the video and I figured that wouldn’t be appropriate for my family friendly blog. So… you get the Singin’ in the Rain/Umbrella Glee mix instead. Still awesome.
Also, might I add:
This year the guest performers were David Archuleta and Michael York. Awes! The concert was simply amazing. Breath taking. Spectacular. I loved it. D. Archie sang the most incredibly beautiful rendition of Silent Night I have ever, in my 27 years, been blessed to hear. I can’t wait for the album to come out next Christmas so I can listen to it over and over again.
I like to cheat on my blog sometimes. Partly because I’m lazy and partly because I have amazing blogging friends who work word wonders. Like my bff Aubrey, for example. I’m going to cheat on my blog with her blog. Again. Sorry blog, it’s not my fault Aub can spin beautiful webs of words.
But before I do, I must tell you about the second most amazing moment of my life so far. As some of you may know, I love President Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-Day Saints. I know it’s probably not very righteous to have a favorite apostle, but I do. So deal with it. Saturday morning I was enjoying the Days of ’47 Parade with Aubrey and Michelle, Aub’s mom and bro and my mom and dad and bro when all of the sudden, we saw President Uchtdorf coming up the parade route in a convertible. I got really, really excited to see him. Like, really excited.
Remember last year when he sat by my fam and I? Pure awesomeness.
Anyway, back to the story at hand. SO, there I am, really excited and I get this great idea for Aub, Michelle and I to yell “WE LOVE YOU” to Pres. Uchtdorf. So we did. Because we’re five. At this point he turned to look at us. We were all cheering, but I was probably going a little spastic cause he is my favorite.
Then it happened. PRESIDENT UCHTDORF POINTED DIRECTLY AT ME AND WAVED!!! I’m not even kidding. I kinda freaked out with excitement and I’m pretty sure he laughed at me. It was amazing. And do you wanna know what makes it even more amazing? You see, I have this incredibly on the ball friend Aubrey who was taking pictures of the parade. She got a picture of the exact moment he pointed at me! I think I might frame it and hang it in my house somewhere.
(Insert angelic choir singing)
Last weekend my ward, along with two others, ventured up to Martins Cove, Wyoming. I had a little bit of mixed feelings about going, but I was mostly excited. It turned out to be a wonderful trip! I got to know a few new people, danced, pulled a hand cart, stood on Independence Rock, and felt the sacred, peaceful spirit of Martins Cove. Here are just a few pictures I took:
