it was a series of unfortunate events

today started out awesome.

i had an awesome hair day. and people were cracking up at my video in the assembly. it was great.

it was awesome until like 6:30.

then it was a sequence of embarrassing moments.

to name one: have you ever locked your keys in the car while it was still running? i have.

ok, today should probably be over now.

I spent the day filming little kiddos for a student council video.
(I'm thinking I'm basically a member of student council by now. Kidding... but really.)
Now I just have to spend the day tomorrow editing up a storm.
The video will be something like this. and this and this and this.

And... Samuel, Kati, and I were all wearing our Toms today.

old photos

I was looking through some old photos today.
I know everyone says this,
but a little part of me feels like I was born in the wrong decade.

my grandpa + siblings and parents

we saw a lady taking her pet raccoon for a walk.
no big deal.

something i forgot to tell you yesterday

and it might be too much information...

one time i was seven years old and i was at mountain view high school watching a concert.
i didn't really feel so good while we were there... and I threw up. I threw up spaghettios.

yesterday i was at mountain view high school again watching a concert for orchestra extra credit.
guess what i happened to have for lunch yesterday.


i didn't throw them up this time.

my brain is exploding a little bit.

Right now, I'm loving this knit hat. Too bad my sister just barely told me she had it a couple days ago. I could have been wearing it all winter! Ah well.

I saw my second grade teacher today and talked to her for a minute. Senora Huerta. She was one of my favorite teachers, and she seemed really impressed when I told her I passed the AP spanish test. The Emperor's New Groove came out the year I was in second grade. She let us watch it in class because we were learning about the incan empire. Elementary school is a pretty sweet deal.

It is impossible not to laugh while watching the "baby laughing while ripping paper" youtube video. Oh man. That was exactly what I needed today.

This week has been fweaking busy. And is just getting busier. Tomorrow I have a golf tournament. And the weather man says to expect snow. Woo. Golfing in the snow is not so great. Then immediately after my tournament I have to hurry and come home, shower, get cute, and go to the senior dinner dance. Oh, and I have to manage not to fail government too.

Whew. End of term is crazy. Wish me luck guys.

if i was a room

i saw this room here a while ago, and after looking at it for a few seconds, i was like holy hannah.
if i was a room, this is exactly what i would look like.

here's why:

1. grey walls. grey is one of my favorite colors. weird, i know. i wear something grey everyday i think. plus, i think it's a great wall color.

2. that plaid blanket on the chair. i'm definitely a plaid kind of girl.

3. giant map on the wall. i have a weird map/globe fettish. i can look at them for hours. and i anticipate have many of them in my future home.

4. the mustard rug on the wood floors. first of all, wood floors are my favorite. and then yellow is one of my favorite colors too.

5. lotsa lotsa books. i love books. i love how they look and smell and feel. oh, and i like reading them too.

6. a comfortable amount of clutter. because i'm not a naturally spic-and-span kind of person. i like places that look lived in and comfortable.

7. pretty natural light.

8. that sweet red chair.

9. dishes on the coffee table. i have a thing for cute dishes.

10. a really cozy looking down comforter.

i'm not exactly sure if a stuffed pheasant defines me. maybe it does.

wall of shame

actors of which i am not fond for one reason or another
(hopefully they don't come hunt me down..)

joan cusack.
(which is a huge bummer because she voices jessie in toy story.)

brendan fraser.

matthew mccaughnoaghauneghy.

billy bob thornton.
(angelina jolie obviously doesn't like him that much either.)

chris cooper.

bill murray.
uggghhh. of all these people, he'd be the first one i'd vote off the island.

there are probably some others as well that aren't coming to mind.

oh, there was a time when i didn't like bradley cooper much.
but since i started watching alias, he's grown on me.

which actors don't you particularly like?

reasons why i need a job

because i need to buy a laptop.
because i like eating at restaurants.
because i want to study abroad in a few years.
because i reeeeally want to buy a t2i.
and because i am going to college. in like 5 months.

wishing i had a vault full of galleons at gringotts right now.

happy st. patrick's day

the spinach smoothie is back.
and for all the haters out there:
yes, it looks weird.
no, it doesn't taste weird.
fact: you don't taste the spinach at all.
tastes like strawberries and peaches.
and your arteries will love it.

true or false

1. it's a taylor swift kind of week.

2. kylie and i were sort of compared to matt damon and ben affleck, which was a huge compliment.

3. i'm definitely an introvert. times 5.

4. i'm craving a little sun + palm trees + pool.

5. my 65+ year old male government teacher quoted The Devil Wears Prada in class.

If you answered True for all of the above,
you are correct.

you know those spinach smoothies?
i made one today and it was dang good.
all the superheroes are drinking them nowadays.

I kind of just threw a bunch of fruit, ice, and spinach in the blender
but here is a recipe i found on this blog:

An Orange, cut into fourths
A Banana
5 or 6 Strawberries
A cup or handful of frozen peaches
Large handful of spinach
Small handful of carrots (about 5 mini carrots)
1/2 C. water

Those books crack me up.

this week in review

i completely lost my voice.
jimmer is good. there's no getting around it.
cheetos + arrested development = a great combination.
i napped outside and it was so nice.
the boys looked cute in their new soccer jerseys.
i watched lacrosse.
i played a lot of scrabble.
my new golf club is unreal.
i need to get organized.

helium. it's pretty funny stuff.

a word of warning:
don't film with your ipod/iphone vertical. just hold it horizontally and your life will be easier.

Thursday, March 10, 2011


i took down the hanging hearts and put this up.
i made it while i was on my sewing kick last month.

poor quality photos. sometimes i'm too lazy to get out my camera.

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

i don't have much to say today,

but wouldn't it be nice to be here
or here
or here?
i think it would be nice.

thanks, papertissue, for the pretty photos
and for making me daydream the last few hours away.

ps - i can hear "beat it" by michael jackson blaring from my basement right now. i like that.

lookie lookie

i wonder if that means my blog is stylish or if i am stylish.
as in clothes.
because if it was totally up to me
(and not up to social cues)
i would probably dress like this everyday


but i really appreciate the award! so sweet.
it definitely boosted my confidence.

and now, i would like to pass this award along to...
because they are stylish ladies and i love them.

why does school even matter

Brave, 2012

i'm sick today.
my tonsils are the size of a buick and i have a nasty headache.
it's because everyone around me was coughing last week
and i breathed their air.

on another note

the imdb synopsis:

Scottish princess, Merida, defies her parents by perusing an interest in archery, but inadvertently jeopardizes her father's kingdom in the process.

Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Julie Walters

new princess movie. sounds like it will be a winner.
i feel so good about this.

dramatic, but less ghetto

i saw a hair tutorial on a cup of jo the other day.
i tried it.
it worked.
yeah, it feels a little bit like laura ingalls or something
but i think pioneer chic can be cute too.

that time of year

this morning i opened the front door and saw a bunch of arrows drawn in chalk.
you know what that means.
hooray for crazy utah dance-invitation traditions.
and for prom too.
and for evan, who knows i'm a fan of helium balloons and chalk.

jamie: do you know who asked you?
jessie: yeah, evan kirby. who else has a V and a K in their name?
kaity: viktor krum, obviously.

i made this for the welcome week assembly this year. maybe some of you saw it.
these guys really loved running around in their kilts, even if they deny it now.

not a morning person

fetus face (fēt´us feys): the condition of a person's face upon waking up.
ie, eyes swollen shut, pillow lines on cheeks. basically an extra puffy face.

I suffered from extreme fetus face this morning. I couldn't open my eyes all the way until 3rd period. Love it when that happens.

On the brighter side...
Boys soccer tryouts are happening.
Walking out to my car by the field after school suddenly became fun.

theme of my life.

"If we are feeling lousy, and the news is bad, and people are bad, what to we do? We go to the movies. We escape."

-Oprah Winfrey

That right there is one reason why I love movies so much. Just one reason.

some passing thoughts i had today

michelle williams is my hair inspiration. i'm always girl crushin on her bangs.
and she looks super cute with a pixie cut too. lucky woman.

golf season is here. we have an interesting relationship, golf and i.
today, i really like it.

oh yeah, it's march now.

is there some kind of super food you can eat that will make your eyelashes grow?
just wondering.

i went and got my good grades donuts from krispy kreme last night, but they only give you the plain glazed ones. i've been craving craving craving the sour cream ones though.
