Solar eclipse and bunny boo boo

Last Sunday there was solar eclipse if you didn't know.
It was awesome.
Brooke, Alicia, and I stood on our balcony with our sunglasses and watched the magic. 
We also watched it through our window because the sun was so darn bright.


Also we are bunny sitting this weekend!
I am so excited!
I love bunnies!
I decided to name him Bunny Boo Boo, so when I talk to him I can say Bunny boo boo-boobooboo.
You know like in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (I just tried to find a video of her saying it and it is nonexistent! Such a shame!)

Look at how cute he is!!! 
I'm obsessed!!!

Happy Birthday Ryen!

Happy Birthday to my beautiful little cousin, Ryen!
Ryen is 8 today and I really can't believe it!
It seems only yesterday my 13 year old self was holding her as a newborn.
I love my Ry-Ry. 
I love that she likes to talk on the phone and goes into the bathroom for privacy.
I love that she always asks if I have a new last name yet.
I love that she screams with joy every time I see her even if it has been months since we last saw each other.
I love that she brings a smile to my face whenever I see her or even just think of her.
I love you Ryen!
I hope you have the best birthday ever!

10 things that I am currently thinking of:
  1. My tailoring class is taking over my life
  2. Chips and salsa, snow cones, and cookies for dinner sounds like a good idea until you feel sick afterwards
  3. It is so warm in our apartment lately
  4. I got a call today that these shoes are in!
  5. Toothache=dentist appointment next week
  6. I made this recipe yesterday and it was delicious!
  7. I wish I were swinging right now
  8. Can school just be over yet?
  9. I saw the Avengers again last night and loved just as much as the first time
  10. Finished my first swimsuit today and now trying to decide for my second suit on a pattern like this:
lace trim or swimsuit
Your thoughts?

Mom

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!
Especially to my own mom.
Thank you for everything you have done for me and will do for me in the future.
You have taught me so much and it is knowledge that I treasure. 
You make me want to be a better person.
You have taught me to love the gospel and to live it righteously.
I am proud to call you my mom and I hope that one day I can be as good a mom as you.
I love you mom.

Hulk vs. Thor

Yesterday Katie and I went to see the Avengers.
IT WAS AMAZING!!!!
If anyone wants to see it again, let me know because I will totally go with you!
But really though I loved it. 
I love that we were able to see all of them fighting each and so when someone asks you "if there was a fight between the Hulk and Thor who would win?" 
I can legitimately answer that it would be a draw because they all have strengths and weaknesses that make it impossible to beat each other. 
I personally think that the Hulk is actually the most invincible, although the price of that invincibility is high and I would say it's not worth it. 
But he does have like the funniest part in the movie, so I love him.
Then there is the completely hot Captain America.
I love that he keeps the whole team together and his fighting is totally bad-a.
Oh Iron Man, how are you so funny?
Really though, RDJ you did well.
You kept me laughing the whole time and your armor will always be the coolest.
Mmmm...Thor...I feel like words really can't describe Thor.
Can you really go wrong with a Norse god?
No I don't think so.
And last but not least we have Black Widow and Hawkeye.
They are assassins and even though they have some of the coolest fighting skills, I also feel like they are the most vulnerable because really those are their only skills. 
Cool, but they aren't super human.

So there you have it, I loved the Avengers.
Sometimes I think I'm a nerd and writing things I think affirms that thought.
And you know what? I am proud of it.

Birthday weekend

My birthday was this weekend!
We started the my birthday weekend with the rooftop concert on Friday night.
Then on Saturday we had lunch at Tucanos.
Free meal and all the meat you want! Score!
Then a little bit of shopping.
And later some delicious ice cream cake.
Sunday was my actual birthday so we had a little birthday bash in the evening.
Nothing too big, but just some friends and food.
It was a wonderful weekend!
















21 years and loving life!
So grateful for all the blessings I have.
Thank you family and friends for making this birthday so memorable!

Party in our bedroom

Sometimes Brooke, Alicia, and I like to have dance parties in our room.
Tis a grand time.
  This is normal.
You can come party with us next time, but it probably won't be in our room.
Happy Wednesday!
