A okay.

so when i was in sixth grade,
we would have to write books, and we were required to use each page as a letter of the alphabet.
each letter would have to stand for something about us or something we love.
here is the "ABC's of me" ten years later
let's just take this one day at a time.


Audrey Hepburn.

"I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and... I believe in miracles."


i should've seen it coming.
after watching the six hour pride and prejudice with jeff, i had to know i was going to get payback.
and i did.
that's right.
me and mr. elsey spent our memorial day watching all of the lord of the rings movies.
oh not just all three of the movies.
all three extended versions.
we started at noon, we ended at one o clock in the morning.

i tend to be a movie sleeper. so i closed my eyes for a little bit during the second movie and when i opened my eyes again, jeff was staring at me and the movie was paused.
"ready to start watching it again????"

i really didn't think they were that bad. i'm not a mythical kind of person.
but orlando bloom sure got my attention.

having one o'clock being past my bedtime.
i was watching the men fight the orcs and all of a sudden the hobbits were back in the shire.
i missed the ending.
i missed the destroying of the ring.
but all in all.
great memorial day.

winged out.

i'm going to be a make up genius i just decided.
i'm tired of not being able to do all the cute make up things because i'm too scared.
not anymore.
thanks to the beauty department, i am slowly on my way.
i've always coveted the winged liner girls.
and now i'm one of them
when my mom came home she told me my make up looked cute and then asked where i got it done.
i got done in my room mom.
thanks to this tutorial
i can't wait to master it.

we're wardies.
 we're seniors
 we're friends.

ohhh the places we'll go.
i really want a vespa.
because eventually i'll live in the city.
and cars feel too closed in.
i want the wind in my hair and the sound of people in the streets.
and i want to be like audrey hepburn and gregory peck on a roman holiday.

this rain.

ah this rain. it's just bliss.
complain all you want about it not being warm. we have time for warm.
let me stand in the rain for a little longer.
because umbrellas are pretty and because the sound and the smell relaxes me.
i rode my bike in the rain. i might have been very cold once i got home, but it was so nice while i was riding.

i'm thinking i'll spend my summer riding on a bicycle under the shaded trees in virginia.

my grandma. is the best.

my grandma merrell lives in american fork.
she is basically the storybook grandma.
her house always smells like fresh bread because she makes bread all the time.
she plants flowers and grows all of her own vegetables and fruits.

oh and she has eleven children.

meaning she has a gazillion grandchildren
every grandchildren that graduates high school, she makes a quilt for.
a hand stitched giant beautiful quilt.
when my brother got his, i was insanely jealous.
until yesterday
when my grandma pulled out this,
every single flower on the quilt has stitches around all the petals.
i have the greatest grandmother ever.

you're my everything.

bowling, laser tag, fake birthday, lettuce wraps, chop sticks, "embarrasingly" dancing, the green hornet, and falling asleep in his arms.

oh and my little brother went.
such a little stud.
