#5 Make a wearable item of clothing


You can add crocheting a hat to my list of accomplishments, 
thanks to the darling Jessica that showed me how to do it.

I am now officially ready for winter.
Bring it on, snow! 
My hair is safe.

Basically, I'm On My Way to Australia

In light of the imminent statistics exam that I have to take tomorrow at 11:00 am, I have decided to take a break from my fake studying and tell you some exciting news.

Australia is finally becoming a reality.
My major has a high adventure study abroad program this summer from July 8-August 13.
It takes place in Australia, Fiji, and New Zealand.
Um, yes please!

So I am applying right now, trying to convince them that I am awesome enough to go.
Cross you fingers for me, that I'll get in.
And that I can find a job that will pay me enough to save up for this adventure.

My dreams of scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef and safari on the Outback are finally realistic.

That is all.
Have a good day.

Bird Watching

Thanks to Tiffany, I am completely obsessed.
It's a problem.
He's all I've been listening to for the past week.

There is something about him and his violin,
something about his whistling,
something about his lyrics that captures me completely.

I recommend these songs:
A Nervous Tic Motion of the Head
Oh No
Tables and Chairs
Scythian Empires

You should also read his blog post on Measure for Measure,

Penguin Love

When a male penguin is sweet on a female, he'll search the beach for the perfect pebble to give to her. Once he finds it, he waddles over and places it at her feet. If she accepts, they become life long mates.

I am trying not to imagine how awesome this dress would look.
Curse you, Anthropologie!
I need to graduate and get a job asap so I can buy things like this.

Real Love

"Sexiness wears thin after awhile and beauty fades, but to be married to a man who makes you laugh every day, ah, now that's a real treat."

Joanne Woodward on being married to Paul Newman

Oh just another reason to love Paul.
That's what I'm holding out for.

Life is good. Be happy.

Last night, I had a little surprise party for this awesome guy.
It went really well.
He was super surprised.
And I got to spend the evening with my favorite people.
I am so lucky.

Then we went to Danielle's and had a fire with roasted apples.
Then we came back to my house and watched a movie.
Where I fell asleep.
I think everyone left around 4:00 am.
I was not really awake and just stayed on the couch until a phone call from Will woke me up at 9:00 am.

And then it was pancakes and Conference!

Watch it.
Best weekend{s} of the year.

I can't even begin to describe to you the joy I get from this.
It's stunningly beautiful and perfect.
