my little brother can beat up your little brother

last night i went to the viking football game
(no i'm not a super super senior)
to watch this little stud of a brother

okay so he's not little.
he's been bigger than me since he was ten and i was twelve.

this is the last game i'll be watching of his football and it makes me very sad.
i love watching football.

he's graduating this year, which makes me feel even older than i am.

if you don't know him, he's the most hilarious boy.

this is his profile in the football program.

congrats brady, keep being studly and get a girlfriend already.

post fall break miniature break

seeing as last week was "fall break",
it just happened to be one of the busiest weeks at work.
so guess who didn't get a fall break?
this chick.

so with two of my four classes cancelled today, i went to one....
then left.
for a teeny tiny fall break of my own.

me and robyn went up provo canyon and basked in the beautiful season called autumn.

i also found my future tiny cottage i'll share with my husband

minus the tiki on the side.

it was sublime.

do yourself a favor and take a drive up there with a good book.

my fall playlist

i'm not sure if i'm the only person but my music taste changes with the temperature.

some artists i can listen to when it's sunny, but if it's snowing, it just doesn't feel right.

fall i can't deny, houses my favorite music taste that i just can't seem to stand while it's bright and 100 degrees.

i've finally felt like i can listen to it.

so i decided to share with you my fall music playlist.

Old Pine - Ben Howard
The Wolves (Act I and II) - Bon Iver
Some Day Soon - Alexi Murdoch
Wrapped Up In Piano Strings - Radical Face
Brothers On A Hotel Bed - Deatch Cab For Cutie
Ivy & Gold - Bombay Bicycle Club
Crosses - Jose Gonzalez
Sunday Best - Augustana
Re:Stacks - Bon Iver
Keep Your Head Up - Ben Howard
Mykonos - Fleet Foxes
Honest Songs - Noah Gundersen
Orange Sky - Alexi Murdoch
Heartbeats - Jose Gonzalez
Blood Bank - Bon Iver

i made a playlist of it here
(i'm slightly bugged i couldn't post the playlist here and you could listen to it)

also i'm obviously so indie that i couldn't find three of the songs on playlist (just kidding guys i'm really not that cool) so i posted a link to a youtube video

congrats geoff and brie!

well that backfired a little bit.

happy birthday robyn!

hello large sweaters,
hello going slightly out of my way to step on a crunchy leaf,
hello scarves and knit berets,
hello pink nose,
hello brisk air,
hello layers,
hello cold fingertips,
hello colors, colors everywhere,

hello october, it's quite good to see you again.

6 reasons why riding the bus is the shiiiii

while my car was in repair last week i had to mooch off of my roommates which i really hated
bonus: my apartment complex gives me free rides to school.
but i still needed to get to work
so i decided to get a bus pass just until my car got fixed.

and baby it's the best.

for those a little hesitant to public transportation, you are missing out big time.

here are my 6 reasons why you should ride the bus or take the train.

6. you meet the greatest people on the bus.

5. you're reducing your carbon footprint, with all that not driving of your car.

4. it's actually really reliable, i've only had one bus out of the thirty i've taken be only two minutes late.

3. the bus has A/C, my car doesn't

2. you get more exercise because i've had to run to the bus stop a few times to catch it

1. you save so much money

no joke.
i would spend $80 a month just on gas on my car.

now i haven't filled up my car in two weeks.

buses get a bad rep, but i'm telling you right now, if you have the capacity to use the bus

do it.

peplum love

i'll admit, when i first saw peplums i was completely turned off by them.
but they've grown on me and now i'm obsessed.
and it wasn't until just this weekend i finally bought a peplum top.

so great.
it makes my waist look like 10 inches
okay not really but you get the jist.

it's so feminine but so strong.
it makes curvy girls look skinny and skinny girls look curvy.
it's the greatest shirt/dress/skirt you could buy.
just trust me.

movin on up

i finally did it ladies and gentlemen.
i moved out.
i've been waiting to tell you for two weeks now but you know
life happens.

but hey,
it's mine.

pack pack pack it up.

most people say they think they have a lot of stuff until they start packing and they really dont.

mine was opposite,
where did i get all this stuff??

and i'm still not done.

at least my mom renewed her costco membership and bought me all of my favorite snacks.

let's do this college style.

the end is near everyone.
and i couldn't be more happy

summer is almost over.

what sydnee? you hate summer? how could you?
well hate is such a strong word, i would say i strongly dislike summer.
i have my reasons. most of it is because the heat and i sweat more than an average 19 year old girl should.
and it's more of that i like the other seasons more.

i saw this video from tanya burr (who is the greatest vlogger ever go check her out)
and i just pretended that she tagged me so i could do it too hehehe.

1) Most worn nail polish
2) Most worn hair product
3) Most worn bag
4) Most worn shoes
5) Most worn accessories
6) Most worn clothing item
7) Most worn foundation
8) Most worn blush and/or bronzer
9) Most worn lip product
10) Most worn mascara
11) Most worn eyeshadow

what have you worn most this summer??

i know i'm not one to back up miley cyrus..

so i won't.
yeah miley i know you're trying to make a point that you aren't hannah montana anymore but i'm sorry,

this haircut does not flatter you.

flat out.
people can pull this off though like robyn

but you just can't miley.

maybe if she kept it brown?
i don't know it just isn't right.

gilmore girls fans?

what's the verdict here on the new show from abc family


i'm sure you've heard it's been created by amy sherman-palladino,
the creator of gilmore girls.

i'm personally a huge gilmore girls fan, i can quote any episode, i dare you to challenge me.

and while it has been off the air for nearly five years, i still watch them every night (literally, just ask nicole.)

bunheads is yes, basically a copy of gilmore girls.
emily is in there plus michelle is basically a dancing lorelai. they have the similar relationship too.
same music in the background,
same old small town,

plus you get little tastes of old gilmore girls characters like gypsy, zach, mitchum huntzberger, and jason, very surprising.

but the draw to it,
the same humor.

my favorite part of gilmore girls, the witty quick banter and the slowly escalating drama that doesn't jerk you around like every other drama show.

my opinion you ask?

i enjoy it.
like i said, it's the humor that gets me.
it's a copy, granted i definitely don't like it more than gilmore girls, but considering it comes from the same person, i really don't mind it.
she knew she had something great that people loved and still love to this day,
so she decided to give us a little bit more.


what do you guys think?

california love {day three}

on the third day,

we decided to be those artsy type people and go to the sawdust art festival

i felt so cultured
i also bought this adorable shirt from this lady

then later that night we went to a little less cultured of a place...

angel stadium.

i ate a classic ballpark hot dog,
and even though they lost, it was super awesome.

i still have plenty of stuff left in my shop
