I live for Fall

9 thoughts on what's happening in ma life right NOW:

1. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Babel.
Rekindling my already blazing firely love for Marcus and his Sons. I'm just whimpering for them right now. Favorites from their new album are "Babel" and "Lover's Eyes". 

I walk slow, I walk slow,
Take my hand
Help me on my way

Absolutely godsent, right?

2. How the crap did I miss the Emmy's??
Oh I know why. It's because one of my favorite cultural influences (my mother) decided to move across the country along with the rest of the club. She's my usual update on wordly affairs. I miss watching food network and reading people magazine at my parent's house.
Also, I was too distracted by my paints. I spent like 4 hours making this tedious color wheel for my oil painting class. That's what I get for falling behind: I get to take my classwork home with me. But it wasn't so bad because we Netflixed it up. Multiple episodes of Law and Order SVU, Rat Race, and Super 8 all in one night.

3. Sweater weather is quickly approaching! The world smells like rain. My closet is prepared and stacked full of sweaters and scarves and boots. That's basically all my closet is. I don't have a summer wardrobe, unless you include countless Target t-shirts and my one pair of stained purple shorts. So happy to light up my Volcano candle from Anthropologie and curl up with some herbal tea and a big blanket while watching all new seasons of my favorite tv shows. Speaking of, the return of BARNEY STINSON was last night and you can be absofruitly sure me and husbANDY and I watched it and I almost cried in excitement. Barney's 60 second monologue was incredibly epic. 

4. Obsessing over this coat:

I think this is going to be my fall purchase. 

5. Just bought 2 tickets to Les Miserables at the Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City. October 27. Closing night. And since we's married we can totally go to a hotel for the night and make a vacation out of it all. Holla what!!

6. I hardly ever make real dinners. Like stand in the kitchen over the stove and put my god given talents to the test. But when I actually take the time to do it, my meals are the bomb dot com. 
I mean, check out this gorgeousness:

And I don't care that I'm totally gloating right now. Because remember how I didn't know how to make mac and cheese from a box last year? Chyeah.

7. Lately, in between all my drawing and painting and studying and homeworking, I've been stealing away to my beautiful newish macbook pro to play the sims. Or to the tv to watch Law and Order (specifically SVU). And in between work and school and church and callings and eating and sleeping and computerizing, me and Andy are still finding time to get to know each other better. Although I hope our conversations are never overheard because I think we are crazy. Insane crazy. And really gross.

8. Sometimes I catch myself missing certain people. These people, specifically:

But then I stop myself and remember that I've never in my life been happier than I am when I'm with this dude: 

So I'm pretty okay.

9. Maybe one day I'll find time to post on this blog regularly. I always dream of being one of those fashionista mommy bloggers whose kids are sickeningly adorable. But until I pop one of them chillens out of my belly you're all going to have to wait for that. And that's not for a little while, so hold your horses.

Time to go fall asleep listening to some Daniel Tosh. That's our nightly routine, anyway. Until next time...


Older and Grosser

So this post really isn't related to anything, as it should be.
Considering the catastrophically large events that have happened in the past few weeks.
Namely my family moving across the country my sister leaving on her mission and my grandparents selling their house and school starting and me being pregnant and all that.
Hah! Totally got you on that pregnant thing. You're eyes went like this, right? O_O
I'm not pregnant.
But all this other stuff is giving me all kinds of stress.
Like to the point that my right eye was twitching constantly for 4 days straight.
And I had a migraine and was handicapped for a couple of hours.
And Andy just LOVES this side of me.
He really is so supportive. To the point, actually, it's kind of sickening to watch.
Like there I'll be, lying on the couch, again, for the third time that day, squeaking out something about how terrible it is for my family to have the nerve to care more for their overall well-being than my sanity.
And Andy relaxes next to me, stroking my hair as he watches Arrested Development and feeds me coffee ice-cream.
Honest to gosh, I don't know how he puts up with me.

So maybe I'll post about them moving sometime. I took a million picture of them moving out. I think it was easier to watch from behind a camera than in person.

But for now, lets set my droopy feelings aside and check out a coolio video:

I saw this video yesterday on my favorite French art blog (mmmmyesss I follow a French art blog because oui oui I speak the Francais)! The blog is called Fubiz and posts similar artsy stuff as This is Colossal and BOOOOOOOM!, which, yes, are art blogs too.

It's just a film of a bunch of people saying their age. But they do it in order so its from 1 to 100.

Oh and they're speaking Dutch. So I'd like to formally dedicate this video post to Estée.

This video scared me to death.
It started out cool. I was like,
awww cute foreign kids using guttural noises as they count! how sweet.
And then I was like okay, now you're starting to get gross. Stop getting older k? go back to the cute kids.
And then I started going
That 94 year old man FREAKED me out.
This video gave me an irrational fear of getting old. I've always been looking forward to old age and stuff and now it just flat creeps me out. It looks gross and awful. Puts me on edge.
But this video was a cool idea.

So I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
Wish me luck with my emotions.
God speed.
