this month was in like a lion, out like a drugged lion, and fast as a cheetah. as far as the monthly theme goes…. i think MIDTERMS. would probably suffice. lots of tests, papers, and cramming happened this month. also, presentations. read on!
hawaii shape up is in full force… which basically means i just go to the gym on friday nights to lift heavy things. totally normal. // this was my first outdoor run of the season when i decided to break up with winter. // my lunch in the RB every monday and wednesdsay. also, i get weirdly self conscious when people ask me what i’m eating// this picture was taken as i was leaving work…. AKA it was STILL BRIGHT OUTSIDE! my soul smiled. thank you daylight savings
this month i got the opportunity to present at an inquiry conference put on by BYU and i presented about my project in spain. i was sufficiently terrified, but thanks to a little retail therapy and my nerd glasses i got through it. also, no one showed up but my mentor…. but then again, maybe i should have actually invited people? // my thursday grocery shopping haul. THOSE MARVIN’S CRACKERS are crystal meth good. // guys, mark this day in history that i successfully made spanish tortilla. and it was really good! i think pilar would have been proud. // just those little ragamuffin cuties i read to on thursdays. they always ask me if i have my phone to play with. mostly i lie and tell them it is dead.
kourtni got her senior pictures taken. she was WORKING THAT CAMERA. what a babe// here’s my cute family waiting for our sushi. lindsay got bacon sushi. typical. // this is how my grandma eats her vegas roll. not pictured: dousing the entire thing with soy sauce. //me and payton. he always tells me to stop taking pictures… but this one is evidence that he totally likes it.
my best girl kelsey is getting married. she fainted at her dress fitting. // i made waffles. they weren’t as delicious as they look, unfortunately. // we learned how to check for breast cancer. it was hilarious and well, hilarious. for my birthday i told my friend i wanted to have a cheese tasting AKA just buy many blocks and wheels of cheese (actually pieces out of the 1.99 or less bin at sprouts. let’s be honest here) and eat them with things. WE FEASTED. herbed goat cheese, wisconsin sharp cheddar, queso fresco (probably made in a bathtub. thx shane), sweet pepper cream cheese, brie…. for half an hour my life was complete. we ate it all with awesome crackers and dried fruit, nuts, apples…. guys. it was off the hook.
and maybe after being sophisticated with our cheese we went and hit flaming golf balls into utah lake. actually i hid under a blanket because it was FA-REEZING. // more sushi. haters gonna hate.// i made lingerie cookies for my friend’s bridal shower. sometimes i frost cookies for three hours. // kourtni’s favorite pastime is stealing my phone and taking approx 1.6 thousand pictures of herself. so, i figured at least one should be displayed.
with it being lent and all, i gave up sugar for all month. during easter this bowl of cadbury mini eggs just would NOT LEAVE ME ALONE and just when all the eggs would be gone… somebody would fill it up again! let’s just say i ate my fair share of it come easter sunday. // OMG spring is here and i like being able to finally see the blue sky // just a creeptastic picture of me at the end of the month. // on sundays i like to take a little walk and listen to a podcast or two… usually dealing with moms and kids. i’m weird. this last sunday as i was walking along i saw this on the sidewalk and it made my day. “timshel” means “thou mayest” and is a HUUUUUGE theme of my fave book, east of eden. basically in a nutshell it means that you control your life and the way you’re going to live regardless of circumstance. at least that’s what it means to me… i suggest you pick up a copy and fall in weird love with adam and HATE CATHY. anyway, seeing this made miss the summer and reading and emily scoggin. also, i put this picture of insta and NO ONE LIKED IT therefore i guess i am alone in my love of literature namely this book.
as far as other things, i’m currently…..
