women all around.

today was nice.
i went to womens conference at byu with my mom....
and though large masses of women are really not in my 'comfort' zone,
we had a lot of fun...


my mom, just as happy as can be. isn't she cute?

i brought my own diet coke onto campus...i still think byu
needs to seriously reconsider their caffeinated beverage status.


this picture is nasty, but this is my favorite thing to order at taco bell.
their plain tostada. num num.
the problem is...the taco bell in the cougar-eat
is one of the only locations around that still carries it.
so i always treat myself when i eat on campus.


my long time friends, barb and gretchen.

probably one of the weirdest pictures ever taken of me. i can't decide
if i look high...or if i look high. yeah pretty sure i look high.
but there she goes...reading the daily universe.

we were blessed with the opportunity to volunteer
at the conference's humanitarian event.
we made hygiene kits for the church humanitarian center.
it was an uplifting and motivating experience.

grateful for today.

the girls with glasses show.

i can't say enough wonderful things about
the girls with glasses show.
i am so excited to continue watching it...

i'll be first in line to support women that are
promoting high standards in fashion, entertainment, and lifestyle
while showing the world how
smart, classy, and sexy they can be.

check it out here.

p.s. i must admit, i'm also secretly in love with it because
i got my first pair of glasses in the 3rd grade...so i've always been
the girl with glasses as well!

and i say, its alright.

it's a beautiful day today.
the skies are the bluest they've been in a long time.
i woke up with this song in my head.
i think it's for you little darling (you know who you are)...

....it's been a long cold lonely winter
little darling, it feels like years since it's been here.
here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and i say it's all right. -the beatles

today, i waited in line at the market...and the length
of time i stood there may have upset me if it weren't
for the baby boy in front of me that i couldn't stop
making faces for (its funny the things people will do to make a baby laugh)...
that little smile was enough to make my day.

that...and maybe it was the conversation i overheard
between the young married couple next to me.
he was telling her how he hoped to give her everything...
all the beautiful things she could ever want.
she didn't say anything...just turned, and wrapped her
arms around him in a loving hug.
i knew at that moment she didn't want any beautiful things.
she just needed him. and he needed her.

and i say, it's alright.

do you believe in rock and roll?

{picture from here}

i love music.
sometimes i feel like music is the glue that keeps
me all pieced together.

here is my most played playlist for the week...

american pie by don mclean
rise by eddie vedder
cying by don mclean
last night i had the strangest dream
by simon and garfunkel

old man by neil young
(i'm honestly in love with this song as of late)
helpless by crosby, stills, & nash
don't cross the river by america
i am a rock by simon and garfunkel
carry on by crosby, stills, & nash
it only hurts when i'm breathing by shania twain
(i know, but i had to throw some shania in there)
norwegian bird by the beatles
lonely people by america
(gerry and i had a moment at their concert in tuscon...it was magical.
i now have one of his guitar picks)

fallin off the face of the earth by neil young

enjoy.
i love my oldies. they'll never die as long as i'm here.

did you write the book of love,
and do you have faith in god above,
if the bible tells you so?
do you believe in rock n roll,
can music save your mortal soul,
and can you teach me how to dance real slow?

-american pie

a little easter charm.

{picture from here}

happy easter.
isn't it such a charming holiday?

general conference was this weekend...
i am so grateful for the opportunity we are given to
listen to the counsel of the leaders of this church.
i feel inspired and uplifted this easter,
to focus on the life of our savior jesus christ...
and to become closer to him.

mormon messages, entitled 'he lives'.

happy easter everyone.

a little bit of happiness.

these are my spring flowers.
i received these lovely tulips at work a couple days
ago. and they make me happy
...
it's chilly outside...
utah in the spring is so unpredictable.
it is kind of frustrating.
nonetheless, i love that it is april and pray for sun.

johnny miller.

spring, please bring me color.
i've fallen in love with the photography of
johnny miller.
his work is crisp, clean, colorful, and stylish.


i'm infatuated with this color and style...isn't it stunning?

and you all know about my love for bookshelves
and ladders....


i truly hope that someday i can have a room in my home with
wallpaper like this. it's fabulous.
and the typewriter adds a nice touch.


when i look at this i dream of having my rockstar
friends over to play some pearl jam and neil young...
wouldn't this be perfect for some jammin'?
...maybe one day.

thank you johnny miller.
