This was me right before going to see Harry Potter.
I was Lavender Brown.
I feel a connection with that actress;
her name is Jessie
and she snogged Rupert.

name it.

.You know, sometimes I wonder...
.Well... if I hadn't been Fox Books and you hadn't been The Shop Around the Corner, and you and I had just, well... met...
.I know.
I would have asked for your number, and I wouldn't have been able to wait twenty-four hours before calling you and saying, "Hey, how about... oh, how about some coffee or, you know, drinks or dinner or a movie... for as long as we both shall live?"

so cute.

thanksgiving eve

The other night I was laying in my bed all ready to go to sleep, except my light was still on. I thought to myself, hhh I wish I had one of those clapper lights so I didn't have to get up to go turn my light off.
Then I thought, whoa whoa whoa stop.
Some people in the world don't even have electricity, let alone a nice house, or their own room, or a cozy bed.
I have so much, and I didn't really have to do anything to get it; I just had to be born. It's kind of overwhelming to think about how much I really have.
And I'm so thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving!

It was perfect perfect perfect.
I have a really hard time finding the right words to describe how I feel about this.
I love Harry Potter so much. I feel this deep emotional connection with all the characters and the whole wizarding world. I love it.

The movie was everything it was supposed to be and more.

they say the nile used to run from east to west

have you heard?
the killers are releasing a christmas single on november 30th!
i'm so excited. love them.

Picture your self in a boat on a river

Thank goodness we can buy these guys on iTunes now.
And Beatles Rock Band is fun. I always forget how much I love it.

You know what else is fun? Robot Unicorn Attack.
Yeah, I know how that sounds. I had my doubts at first too.
Go ahead, play a round. ...or two or three.

This is cool. The beard suits him, I think.

And since I'm in love with love:
They're lovely.

Sometimes when i have a runny nose, i stick tissues in my nostrils so I don't have to sniff. But only when I'm alone, since that isn't really acceptable.

Sometimes the guy at Gandolfo's throws my sandwich at me while I'm not looking. And sometimes my teacher tells the whole class that I have polio. I don't.

And sometimes I learn in seminary that we have colors for the sole purpose of making us happy. I like that.

for books.
for clear skin.
for my dad's employment.
for milk.
for sisters.
for medicine.
for the gospel.
for this pretty place I live in.

i'd pick orlando over romeo every day of the week

"Young men love not with their hearts, but with their eyes."
I know that's right. Good one William.

I used to hate on these flag garland things.
Now I love them. I think I'll make some.

I'm glad this weird week is finally over.
I'm getting ready for a great week, starting tonight.
Basketball game, wingers, dance, ikea, les miserables, harry potter.
It's gonna be a good one.

hall of fame

Three of my favorites:

Tom Hanks

Leonardo DiCaprio (happy birthday)

Don Cheadle

I've watched quite a few movies with these guys in them lately (no, not just Inception and Iron Man 2) and they are some seriously talented people. I really like those actors that can do a lot of different kinds of roles. And that aren't afraid of doing untraditional movies or roles that might make them look unattractive.

(Like him and him and him, too. How could I talk about good actors and not mention them?)

that's what I want

I read it on this blog today. I liked it too much
to not post it.

I want someone who will be monogamous and nice to his mother. And I want someone who likes musicals, but knows to just shut his mouth when I'm watching LOST. And I want someone who thinks being really into cars is lame. I want someone who will actually empty the dishwasher instead of just taking out forks as needed - like I do. I want someone with clean hands and feet and beefy forearms, like a Disney prince. And I want him to genuinely like me. Even when I'm old. And that's what I want.
-Liz Lemon30 Rock

And I really want to watch this tonight.

i love this

Fame is a fickle friend, Harry.

A few photos of Dervish & Banges. The inside.
And looking in the window of Tomes & Scrolls...

You bet your broomstick that is Magical Me and Travels with Trolls.

nicole nicole nicole

This girl came at a time in my life when I really needed her.

She was truly an answer to my prayers.

Still is actually.

I've never clicked with someone so fast.

She's incredibly mature for her age.

She's going to be an amazing doctor one day.

She cooks like a pro.

She has the biggest tonsils ever.

She has eyelashes that anyone girl would kill for.

She is going to be the BEST mom one day.

She gives the best advice.

She tells me she loves me when I feel like no one else does.

She is the best journal-er I have ever ever met.

She knows who she is, and I admire that about her.

She's my best friend.

Happy Birthday Nicole.

My dad is going to London this week. So jealous.
I just want to travel. I want to see the whole world.
I'd love to live in a foreign country and learn new customs and a new culture.
Traveling and reading and learning are more important to me than buying clothes or a big house or a nice car.
Experiencing life. That's so important.
Live life.
Ok, I'll stop rambling now.
Happy Sabbath.

really cute city prints. on etsy.

just dance

i think one of the main reasons i'm sad about october ending is this:

the super car wash sign on state street in orem.
every october they have a dancing skeleton on their big light-up sign.
it is so funny every time.
