He Is We

All About Us 
by He Is We (ft Owl City)

The room's hush, hush, 
and now's our moment. 
Take it in feel it all and hold it.
Eyes on you, Eyes on me. 
We're doing this right. 

Cause lovers dance when they're feeling in love. 
Spotlight shining, it's all about us. 
It's a-a-all 
about u-u-us. 
And every heart in the room will melt, 
this is a feeling I've never felt but,
It's a-a-all about us. 



I'm all moved in to my new apartment and it's safe to say it's . . . . old. 

Before I moved I did millions of loads of laundry and much shopping for pots, pans, and anything else I might need, thank you Ikea! 

Then it was good bye to this. . . 
(Please note Zipper on her bed. I miss her.)

And hello to this . . . 

At least I got to decorate my way and not care what anyone thinks. I love how my room is. It's so happy! (note that there is NO black! hooray!) 

 My desk and dresser area. . . 

Well I'm already a little home sick which is ridiculous because I'm not from China or Korea like my other 2 roommates. I guess I just don't like being thrown into new situations.  Meeting new people is not one of my strong suits but we'll give it a go. 

I can't believe I'm already into my second year of college!
Wish me luck.



The last weekend while Amanda and her kids were here we decided to head up to the mountains and go camping. 
The wild flowers were everywhere and they were way gorgeous! 

It was so nice to be away from everything and just be out in some real fresh air. It was nice being away from cell service and internet too. 

Mckinley was slow to warm up to 4-wheeling but eventually liked it. 

We even got to have a fire! Which means SMORES!!!!! 

They decided they were cold so they warmed their bellies up next to the fire. 

While my dad was taking pictures Mckinley says, "Hurry up Pa! My belly's cold!" 
She's such a riot! 


It was way fun and a great way to wrap up summer.

My family means the world to me! I don't know what I would do without them. Each day I realize how much I love them and how much they make me smile.  They are the ones who are always there for me, they are the ones who cheer me up, they are the ones that make me who I am.  I am the luckiest girl in the world to have the family that I do.  I love them more than any silly old blog post could ever show.

Celebrity Look Alike

So we all know how I get off on my obsessions for a short while and then move on to the next thing. 
Well this week it's been Maroon 5. LOVE THEM! 
They're the most played this week on my itunes. 
Well I really like Adam Levine, their lead singer.  
Yes he is attractive!!! (minus his mass amount of ink)

Or at least I thought so until I was looking at pictures and noticed a strong resemblance to someone I can't stand. . . .

Kasey Kahl. 

Minus the hair color they look similar enough to me that it changed my mind about liking Adam Levine.

Well while I'm rambling about strange resemblances can I just continue using a few examples from this past season of The Bachelorette? 

William and Josh Lucas

                    Ryan P. and Matthew Morrison 

Ben C. and Keegan Allen 

Crazy isn't it? 

I have too much time on my hands. 



Long story short. . . 
Bear Lake, boating, tube, 25 mph, flipped, Kylie 10 ft in the air, slammed across the water, severe concussion. 
I don't remember any of it. 
I only know what people have told me. 

 It happened almost a week ago and I still have THE WORST headache I have possibly ever had. It's not like a normal headache either.  The best way I can describe it is that it feels like my brain is badly bruised. It's been really bad tonight, hence this post. On top of my head hurting my legs are so bruised up! I don't bruise easily and my legs are seriously black and blue. I honestly just want to cry about it all, but I think I know if I do it will just make it worse. Time to suck it up. 

I grabbed some frozen strawberries so I could ice your bruising knees
but frozen things they all unfreeze and now I taste like...
all those frozen strawberries I used to chill your bruising knees
hot July ain't good to me I'm pink and black and blue 

If only I had a boy to get me frozen strawberries haha

Hope you're not expecting an organized post.
You won't find it here.
This is going to be a mess but I'm excited!
I haven't blogged in what I feel has been FOREVER!
I'm laying in bed watching Shark Week (woot woot) and decided I was finally in the mood to put this mumbo jumbo of a blog post together.

annoyance of the day: People who post immensely long blogs with size .09578374 size font. Some of them you could scroll forever. I know mine can be long sometimes but at least I post some pictures to mix it up. What's with this crap that doesn't even make sense and trying to talk yourself up with the whole holier than thou attitude. It just makes me laugh that people try THAT hard to make their life sound amazing when it's really just average, if even that, just like everybody else. Okay, I'm done.

Okay so I posted an earlier picture of this gift I got for my birthday. Well my brother finished it and it's absolutely amazing! Here it is!

I love it!

So going back to school has got me inspired with crafting! I refuse to have anything BLACK in my room this year and so I have been making things I can put in my room that are as COLORFUL as possible! It all started with this. . .

Flower ball I made with Jess when she was up here for the week. It was a butt load of folding paper but they turned out SOOO cute!
I took the colors that were in my flower ball and ran with it.

This is what resulted...

This frame (originally white, turned blue courtesy of me)

Another picture frame ($3.00 @ Hobby Lobby) painted with yellow and covered with rolled fabric, all which I found at my house. I think it turned out super cute! I just need to finish trimming some edges and we're good to go!

Scrabble art. . . We had a bag of scrabble tiles from another art project and I had all the canvas and paint. Cost me nothing. Love it! I picked some random out of the ordinary words that I like and wah-la!

I have more projects but they are still in progress. I'll post when I get them finished.

Next news? My mom and I got bikes!!! I'm so excited! This is a picture of us trying to try them out at Target. 20 feet wasn't exactly enough to get the feel for the bike. We ended up getting them from a little bike shop. I'll post pictures as soon as we get them. Probably when we return from Bear Lake. They're so cute you might just die. I can't wait!

This next item is way random but I thought I'd throw it in there. The other night everyone was gone and I was home alone so I decided I wanted a crepe. Well I have no idea how to make them so it resulted in this. Pancakes with Nutella, bananas, and coconut. YUMMY! So rich though that I could barely eat 2.

Well as Chris Harrison would say. . .
"For everyone who's been a part of this one. . . I'm (Insert your name here). . . Good night"
