is this growing up?

Today I applied for graduation, ate balanced meals, planned an itinerary for a visiting big-whig and took professional headshots.
When did I get so old?

football +
cougar blue friends +
j dawgs
= a winning combination
(unlike the cougars, who are not a winning combination)

but seriously kids, let's keep up this tradition.

it's autumntime

Welcome fall

Here's to cardigans, pumpkin shakes, cool breezes, falling leaves, canyon drives, football afternoons, studying on the crisp grass, new tennis shoes, scarves, cinammon rolls, carmel apple cider, midterms and the feeling that something new is right around the corner.

There's just something about autumn that I love. A lot of things, actually. But the feelings of excitement, of new things, that feeling that even though all these new things are starting and things are changing, you can still conquer the world.

So, hello fall. I'm so very glad you're here. Here's to hoping my last official collegiate fall is my best one yet.

(oh, and lots of excitement to be going back to my all-time favorite place next month)

going to the fair

Went to the Utah State Fair on Friday.
Granted, it doesn't have a catchy song like the Puyallup Fair, but it was still tons of fun.
My camera is our of batteries, so thank you, dear iphone for capturing the evening.

Of course, the first thing we did we when got there was book it to the pig races. Probably the most awesome thing I've ever seen. Our pig never won, but it sure was fun.

We took lots of fun pictures, ate fried food, tried to cheat at carnival games but still lost, Lauren won an abused fish. It was awesome.
(I swear we have other friends...we just only take pictures of the roommates.  Thank you, sir nicholas for the tickets. it was great)

oh, hello there...

5 reasons I have been m.i.a. from the blog world:
1. my computer got really slow
2. then it wouldn't connect to the internet
3. so I had to buy a new one
4. I've spent the last day playing with my new MacBook Pro and not blogging
5. school/work/life is crazy

6 reasons my life is awesome:
1. Cereal sale at Maceys
2. Lauren and I just bought a dinosaur pinata for the PRSSA fiesta tomorrow
3. new macbook, duh
4. came home to cinammon rolls on the counter. ate them. they were delicious. an hour later I get a text from the roommates saying the cinnamon rolls are for us. but we already ate them and they were good
5. 4 apostles in 3 days, plus Sister Beck
6. we got a new fondue pot and had our inaugural fondue fest on Sunday. It was a smashing success.

5 things to look forward to:
1. Fiesta tomorrow (the pinata, people!)
2. PRSSA National Conference in DC next month (booked plane tickets and hotel last week--so excited!)
3. Farmers Market Saturday
4. Fair on Friday!
5. Parents coming for General Conference

3 fashion statements that should never be made:
1. Camelback backpacks on campus (do you really get that dehydrated walking between classes that you can't whip out a water bottle like the rest of us?)
2. Baggy overalls and polo shirts (it's not 1997, people)
3. Lady Gaga's meat dress
