Chapter 135

So Sunday was filled with church, hanging with a couple of young women from my ward, Kandrew and Elsi (Andrew and Kelsi, although this is their new names since marriage.), and watching family home videos. I haven't watched those bad boys in YEARS!! It was probably the funnest (no, not most fun, but the FUNNEST!) thing I have done in a while, and let me tell you I've done some pretty fun things lately.

ANYWHO, while we were watching I noticed there were times when mom filmed dad taking picture of us, with this crazy awesome camera. The entire time I kept saying things like: "DANG it pops! Why on earth do you not have that camera anymore???!!!" and: "I need this camera in my life." and: "I am so erked by the fact that this camera is no longer one of your possessions.."

Since I hadn't made it obvious enough how much I wanted this camera, when we were finished watching I said one more time: "Why would get rid of such an awesome camera??!" Then mom replies: "He never did. It's in the office closet upstairs." My reaction was legit: "ARE YOU KIDDING ME???!!!! I just spent the past hour going on and on and on and ON about how much I need this camera, and you guys said nadda!"

I convinced dad to show it to me right away. As he brought it out of the case he said: "Now don't steal this and keep it in your room." See I kind of borrowed - slash - stole - slash - claim to be mine - slash - named his old Fender that he has had since he was a teenager. But in my defense it was sitting in the basement never being played, just collecting dust. Now it resides in my room and is now known as The Biebs. ANYWAY I might have just responded: "Uh....yeah of course." Needless to say the camera is now in my bedroom..

It is Nikon FM that he bought way back when for his mission (sometime in the 70s). And it is an absolute beauty!!! Let's just say this summer is going to ROCK with my Yashica Electro 35 GS, Nikon D3100, and the new addition Nikon FM! YOODLE YOOOOOO!!!!!!!

I wonder what other little treasures he is hiding from me..?

No matter how many times I watch this video, my heart still manages to melt!




Chapter 133

To be honest, I haven't worn earrings on a regular basis for 3 or 4 years now, but there are SO many that I have stumbled upon while shopping the past few months that I couldn't say no. I still don't wear them everyday, but they certainly add a little "je ne sait pas" to an outfit! The chunkier, the better.

I just discovered this online store, called Shabby Apple, a few weeks ago and I am in love with every single dress! They are pretty steep price wise, but every single dress is modest!

Chapter 130

Is anyone else just as thrilled as I am that Scotty McCreery won Idol?!!! Don't get me wrong, I am a huge Lauren fan, but leaned more towards Scotty just because his voice is knee weakening! Absolutely LOVE his single! Perfect cheesy country song!!!

Lauren's single is a winner too!!!

All in all I was super impressed with this season! America made up for not giving the Idol Crown to Bowersox last year. Job well done, job well done!



Chapter 129

Sundays are my favourite, especially when we end up at Larsons.

He ain't heavy, he's my brother

Eat your heart out Hannah Montana
Well I am off to do some more "putting-things-on-the-wall" in my room.




Chapter 128

Decided to do something new with my hair today.

[Don't mind the random pieces of hair flying around, my ceiling fan was on !]

I just needed my hair off neck, so I just wrapped it around my head. Did the trick!!


Chapter 127

So it's official, I am moving into my brother's old bedroom this weekend! I already started with my closet and bookshelf. It took over 3 hours to get it the way I wanted it.

Andrew had this really small bookshelf that we were going to throw away, but then I had a brilliant beyond brilliant idea! Carried it over to the closet, shoved it in and organized all my purses! See, they used to piled on the floor and I could never find the one I was looking for, would get discouraged and just grab the first one I touched. NOW they are all organized, and I must say, I am uber proud of this mini accomplishment!

Other side

Wanted to something different with my bookshelf. So I did!
I'll keep you all posted on the move! Until then listen to some Angus and Julia Stone. They are the best!
