See YA!

Well hello! This has been the busiest week ever and therefor blogging was kinda last on my list BUT that's okay because I'm pretty much done! I just have one more class today where I will turn in my last project (which is finished) and then I'm free!!! Tomorrow afternoon we are driving down to Salt Lake City because Saturday morning we are flying out to Washington D.C.!! I can't even contain my excitement. I am excited to be in a big city and explore a place that I've never been. Yay! So last weekend, yep I'm blogging about LAST weekend, we went and saw the epic Harry Potter movie. I am a fan and I've always been a fan but I am nothing compared to some people! I didn't do the midnight showing because frankly no matter how good it was, I would fall asleep! We saw it Saturday night and I was pleased!
Hubs and his friend, Erik! We went to the movie with our friends, Erik and Nicole but the picture of Nicole and I is less than desirable haha! So right now a few things are making me happy and here they are...
Yep, we are spending a MONTH in California. No big deal. I can't even express how happy I am!!!
I REALLY want this skirt. like now!
These three photos are via pinterest
These invitations are adorable. Well we are off To D.C. for a week and this means no blogging :( BUT as soon as I get back it looks like I will be doing giveaway of one of my books!!

book, book! who wants a book!

So I make books. And I really like it! I am in a book arts class and we make books all semester. What a dream! I can't wait to make all kinds of fun and creative books on my own. I'm thinking that once I hit 100 followers I will do a giveaway and give away one of my books?! Good idea?

Let me know friends because to be honest that is all I have to offer. haha! Two of my classes were cancelled today. This calls for a celebration!!! Happy Thursday! (it's almost Friday)

This one is actually a slip cover for 3 smaller individual books. Tricky, I know.
I couldn't resist!

random facts

Today is Monday. BOO!! Just Kidding because this is basically the last week of school. Technically it ends next week but I like to tell myself that next week is just turning in projects and cleaning up all the art studios, which it is. I can't even begin to describe how happy I am that this semester is ending. Have you ever tried going to school in the summer? It's hard. Most days when J and I are driving to school we see happy little children riding their bikes and playing in the sprinklers but we can't even smile because we are one the way to school where we will sit in a classroom for the next 6 hours. Sounds terrible right? haha well luckily the semester started in April and at that time it was still cold here. It has just been tough the last month. I went to bed one night and woke up with NO motivation to do school work. It's kind of tragic because I love school but not right now. Right now I want to go to the beach and PARTY!

Well enough of my ranting. J and I had an awesome weekend! I took 3 naps. We went to the cheap theater to see X-men and got Kiwi Loco. (best fro yo ever) We went in our hot tub and got to see our little nephew get blessed in sacrament meeting. By the way, usually when I get yogurt I get granola and fruit because this it what I always get but this time I went loco. I was seriously craving fudge, brownies and all kinds of good stuff. So I went for it and I don't know if I will ever go back.
Right outside of our apartment.
So I thought I would share my most favorite hair. I am growing out bangs and usually I have a middle part but husband asked me to do a little braid (he said that's his favorite haha) and ever since then I have done one every day for like 2 weeks. Go figure.
No smiling because this is serious business.

So anyway I thought I would share some random facts about me because I love reading random facts about YOU guys:

-I am part Native American and part Ukrainian. The Native Americans pay for my school. HOLLA!
-I love making books, and I will share some later this week.
-I am Mormon. Didn't you guys know that? Go here to learn more.
-I REALLY want a dog.
-My husband is super friendly and outgoing so sometimes I like to sit back and observe people and conversations. It's kinda fun.
-I eat cereal entirely too much, in fact cereal for dinner! yay!
-I love running but I feel like it's a love/hate relationship. I love it and it hates me.
-I barely wear any makeup. I just don't like too and sometimes husband says, Oh can you put that stuff on your eyes for me. (he is talking about mascara, sad I know)
-I have been to Europe and I am obsessed with everything European. I want to go back. Today.
-I paint my nails weekly.

Welp people, that's me. Have good Monday :)

The 4th


Am I late? haha. We just got back last night and today has been spent catching up on EVERYTHING. Our weekend was heavenly. We spent the weekend in Boise, Idaho with the Loar family. It was seriously crazy! There were like 30 people there and most of them were kids. We went and saw Transformers 3 on Monday- talk about crazyyyy. That night we went to the most awesome fireworks show EVER! It was the best one i've seen. Oh and Justin's cousin got home from his mission 2 weeks ago so I got to meet him for the first time. J and him are really close so it was really fun to finally meet him! We never went to bed before 2 AM. Yep, if you would have walked in the door after midnight you would think it was like 8 at night! Everyone is up watching movies, having dance parties, making cookies and just being crazy!! We didn't get any sleep but it was SO worth it! I could say this a million times but I honestly feel very blessed with the family I got. I married into an amazing family and I wouldn't trade them for anything. School is over in 2 weeks so my blog posts will probably be few and far in between. Finals are going to be NUTS!!!!!!!!
Road trip, AGAIN!
The whole gang.
Justin's cousins had some chickens running around in the back yard hah!
We ate a bajillion cupcakes.
AIDEN! The whole family met him for the first time and it's safe to say that everyone is obsessed!
