Ugh, blurry.
Whaddya gonna do?

Baby bath time.

The family went to Thanksgiving Point for lunch. After we walked around the glassblowing factory. I was in heaven, especially since I'm in a glassblowing class right now!

one forty four

My friend Kiki (also maybe known as Kristen) sent me a mixtape in the mail. Not only did she make the cd, she sewed the envelope, too! 

Address removed for obvious reasons...stalkers ;)

one forty three

Ok so this is gross...
I had parts of my toenails removed.
The doctor wrapped one of my toes all weird and it looked like a mohawk, so I rolled with it and made some faces. The right one's name is Fred haha.

one forty two

Thanks to my brother-in-law and sister, and support from my parents, I now have a car in my name. Booyah, baby.

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Nate.
He's from Conneticut.
He also likes to dress wildly out of character for glassblowing class.

Let's be honest. 
I forgot to take a picture until I was in bed.
This is my new marriage-friendly duvet cover in bad lighting.

one thirty eight

Beth and I missed a bonfire, so to console ourselves we made one at home. Lame? No, awesome.

Duvet-cover shopping turned into clothes shopping. Britney decided her clothes looked best on the floor of Ross. BLECK. I am proud to say I didn't buy one item of clothing! I am halfway through my clothes shopping ban.

Metal scraps laying around by the glassblowing lab.

My watercolor class painted up at the Y trailhead today. I hiked that hike once and have no desire to do it again. The view was gorgeous, though.

I am now an FHE mom...super ironic seeing as I was FHE-inactive for so long. A girl dislocated her knee while we were playing volleyball. It was so sad! They made her a pillow out of sand. The fire department, an ambulance and the police showed up. I'm wondering why all three...

one thirty two

Beth accidentally took too much sacrament. I don't know why, but it was really funny. She waited about ten minutes and then ate them hahaha.

Campus during the summer is entirely depressing, and a little bit relieving. I hate crowds.

Today, this phone is my best friend (sorry, J).

Beth wanted to buy Avatar cupcakes for FHE.
I shut it down quick.
The only thing worse than store bought baked goods is themed store bought baked goods (one in the same?)

one twenty five

Happy Mother's Day, Momma!

I had no idea bows that look like they belong on top of a birthday present were still in style.
Maybe they left and are back now because of the recent 90s rebirth.
At least there's no puff paint...or is there?

one twenty three

My brother and sister-in-law sent some bomb flowers to my mom for Mother's Day.
Touche on being a few days early...

one twenty two

This gazebo is just dying for a bride and groom. Any takers for an on-campus wedding? ...Nobody?

one twenty one

I'd blame my extreme lack of posting on the fact that my mother is in town, except we all know that I'm just lazy.

I painted this house for a good hour and a half before this girl parked right smack in front of it. Consideration, people, will bring world peace.

The Pros and Cons of glassblowing:

-rare skill
-impressive conversation topic at boring dinner parties
-if I ever get laid off I can run away to Murano, Italy and become a professional glass blower (ha. ha.)
-playing with fire is fun

-one kiln + 10 struggling learners + me not jumping the gun = 3.5 hour wait watching the same thing over and over again
-fourth degree burns (right, Brittany?) ;-)

Baby shoes are like iPhones.

Chillin with the family.
We have discovered that The Charles likes to chase/be chased around that play table. Also, he has a hard time doing it when turning left. ZOOLANDER.
Also he flaps his arms really fast like a baby bird when he gets excited.

one seventeen

Today was a rough day for a lot of reasons.
Lots of internal stuff has been swimming around inside and today they all decided to gang up on each other. 
I decided to give myself a day off. 
I was supposed to do my 3rd day of yoga this week. I got halfway through and literally couldn't find an ounce of energy to finish. Usually I push through and miraculously end up finishing the workout. 

But today I am emotionally and physically drained. 

So I gave up, took a hot shower, went to the store (in my pajamas...I don't remember the last time I went outside in my pajamas), bought some chocolate, and rented a movie.

Then I painted, watched B-list tv and planned long-off trips all day.
New Zealand, anyone?
I don't feel bad about it at all.
Today was a mulligan.
Tomorrow will be better.
