send it off in a letter to yourself


1. swimming laps is a crappy workout for me, i need to sweat.
2. a good clean and furniture move suddenly make me love my decorations again.
3. water aerobics is also a crappy workout, i accidentally took it last week.
4. a lit candle performs leaps and bounds above a plug-in-scented-oil-fan.
5. 100.7 is by far the best radio station.
6. going to the temple and lunch with grandma lines today was the highlight of my week.
7. people talk to you different when you wear glasses.
8. i am secretly wishing we were headed to portland in a week instead of wyoming. but i am still really excited.
9. i think too much about the number on the scale.
10. golfing is fun!
11. everyone is pregnant with girls.
12. the heat makes me tired and grumpy.
13. being with kids all day 3 days a week is refreshing, no adult conversations.
14. i wear jeans, a t-shirt, and a ponytail 80% of the time. and i'm okay with it.
15. i spend way to much money on clothes.

the end.

dear boris, your so pretty. thank you for coming and staying with me this week, and making me laugh the whole time. *like, telling me the funny things you overhear your skinny teacher say. can i please have your freckles?

dear house, thank you, you've somehow managed to stay clean over the past two weeks, regardless of my craziness and total neglect.

dear lando, your cute. and so is your latest golfing obsession. thanks for making me wheat muffins this morning.

dear eyebrows, sorry for forgetting about you and being disgusted by you when i finally pulled my bangs back this morning


i don't want to see you lonely

we went to wicked last week. i loved every moment of it and cried alot, mainly because of the way their voices effortlessly filled the whole theatre. i am so glad i got to see it.

i'm 2 weeks into a 5 week math class. monday & wednesday for 4 1/2 hours. so forgive me if i lack in comments &/or posts. gaaaaaah. (actually, i really do love school.)

*one of my favorite lines from the book, wicked. which i'm currently re-reading



our 4th was wonderful! (minus no sparklers... let's not talk about that...) lando spent the day saying "i'm celebrating my independence by drinking this root beer!" or "...making this u turn illegally!" or "...listening to italian opera!" needless to say, it was pretty entertaining.



i took this photograph last 4th when we celebrated in portland. oh how i wish we were there again. perfect weather & ^this beautiful girl & her baby sister. we lalalove the 4th! tomorrow includes: red-white-blue outfits, backyard bbq's, family, swimming, lots & lots of sparklers. we caaaaaaaaan't wait!

happy 4th everyone!
