yes, i am still in england and no, this post has nothing to do with it. i assure you, i will soon update you on my life here! pinky swear it. but in the meantime, i just discovered these pictures matt clayton had taken of me and my siblings in the fall of 2008. it's strange to think that this was almost two years ago. we took this pictures and gave them as a christmas present to our parents.
i just love them.

how does your garden grow?

Sunday, July 25, 2010

a cougar cool down.

Saturday, July 24, 2010

whelp, of course BYU would break this record when im not in town. provo, utah just broke the record of having the world's largest water balloon fight. more than 3,900 people participated throwing 120,000 water balloons. reporters say students spent all night preparing for this day, making sure they would have enough balloons to set a world record. the previous world record was set by the University of Kentucky. sorry turkeys, a cougar cool down just blew you out of the water. a friend of a friend took video footage of this historic moment for provo cougars. i think he captured the moment perfectly. i really dig this kind of stuff. it makes me step back and say, "gosh, i really do have a soft spot for provo."

holy old spice guy. you know the old spice commercials?
i find them so hysterical. great advertising. i can't ever get enough with them.
well byu has taken a shot at creating their own, luckiy it's with a young chap that is a well known guy in provolone.
and we can't get enough of him.
his name is stephen jones. he's a crack up.
and we thank him for his cougar version of an old spice guy.
here's to the new semester creeping up on us all. hopefully we can all be more like an old spice guy.

so ive made some progress...
and its taking my life to even get somewhere with this guy.
i really have no idea when i could possibly finish this. i might have to shrink my 18X24 canvas.
the thought of sewing that much to cover that amount of space makes me cringe.
who knows, maybe ill buck up and do what i said i'd do.
either way, its coming along.
p.s. i plan on filling in those random areas. i just ran out of floss.

ziggy ze zebra.

Friday, July 9, 2010

i bought this guy for my nephew andrew when he was born.
it's taken andrew two years to recognize how zuper ziggy is!
i knew they would finally adore one another.
youre welcome drew bear.

if fishes were wishes.

Friday, July 9, 2010

if fishes were wishes i'd have every single one of these
glowing on all four walls of my bedroom.

now my collection has just begun. i own the middle "l'hiver monte-carlo" in the top row and the "cannes" one last on the bottom and i seriously drool over them. i dont know why i find myself wasting hours on browsing through vintage travel posters. maybe because they are so colorful? maybe because they focus on places i dream of going to? or maybe because i want to prance around in that pale pink and gold gown and wear my hair like the blonde in all three posters above. she's like a grace kelly cartoon. but i couldn't picture the princess of monaco lounging in a tree like that. either way, i want her hair.

island kiddies.

Wednesday, July 7, 2010

finally. a post about our families favorite island located on one of my favorite states.
hilton head island, south carolina
everyone put your hands up. this year was a party.
its been long dragged out time since our whole entire family has crossed the bridge to the island.
but we all made it, safe and sound and enjoyed each others company, laughs, and food.
pool bar jim treated us to our cool refreshing pool side treats.
his famous and fresh daiquiris.
virgin please.
this year, i discovered and drooled over the blue hawaiian freeze.
there's nothing like pineapple and lime to spread a smile on a bronzed face.
the humidity sucked us in, but the thunderstorms cooled us down.
the beach gave us great waves to dive through and the horseshoe and dolphin pool gave us adventures in the wee hours of the night.
this is the best week out of the whole year. im sad that it has come and gone.
until next year my sweet island of mine.
