way back when

i miss the summers of my childhood--when you didn't want to sleep in cause you wanted to play all day, usually starting at 7 am. where you just walked next door and knocked on the door of your neighbors house to begin the summer festivities. where you could just go to 7 peaks for a couple hours everyday because you had a season pass. i miss the summer days when you never put on a pair of shoes and your feet were constantly black on the bottoms. i miss the days when it was acceptable to watch tv all day long, and still have time for night games with the kids around the neighborhood. i miss the days when steal the flag was on your mind constantly, thinking of different strategies to use in order to win. i miss the days when my skin didn't burn because i was in the sun for twenty minutes without sunscreen. i miss the days of sleeping in the backyard on the trampoline.

those days are gone... and this summer i'll be waking up everyday and working, like a normal human. i guess i'll just have to fit in all that summer stuff after 5. im up for the challenge.

"Perhaps we feel like that when we die and become a part of something entire, whether it is sun and air, or goodness and knowledge. At any rate, that is happiness; to be dissolved into something complete and great. When it comes to one, it comes as naturally as sleep."
Willa Cather--My Antonia

reading rainbow

58% of the US adult population never reads another book after high school.

please read a book, this scares me.... a lot. i suggest Huck Finn. I know you have probably already read it, and hated it in high school. But seriously, its so good. Just trust me and do it. kthanksbye.

i wish everyone still sang like this..

this is a little embarrassing for me to admit... who am i kidding i dont really care, i have spent hours on end playing games on my i touch the last few weeks. apparently i have an addiction to strategy games no one told me about. these are my favorites...

sally spa is easily my favorite. you pretty much just daydream that it is you getting all the treatments in the spa when in reality you are playing as the worker that does every single thing and you are barely getting paid enough to keep your spa running. being a small business owner is rough. i highly recommend this game.

then there is diner dash, its a lot like sally spa but the girl isnt as cute. "flo" has some sort of eye issue. anyways, this is what kept me happy after i beat sally spa.

last but not least there is angry birds. you definitely shoot birds into those pig looking green characters. the birds are angry because the green things stole their eggs. the app told me that its really popular in europe. haaa. anyways, it was pretty fun too.
dear friends. you havent seen me in a while cause of these games, so i thought i would introduce you to them. i have it in my mind that i need to stay home so i can do homework... then i end up playing these for 6 hours. yeah i know. sorry.

also, i know i said i wasnt embarrassed but i might be... i havent decided. well. see ya later.

hippity hop

i have been so sad every year since i was 7 that i havent dyed easter eggs. for some reason it seriously is one of my favorite things to do... just... is. good thing i have a really nice boyfriend that was willing to dye them with me, and even drove me to maceys while he was on a heavy dose of benadryl (i made him be by my cat) cute.

nice nice nice, yay yay yay. easter eggs! happy easter you guys.

sin city

i went to vegas a few weeks ago. it was really fun. they say pictures say a thousand words... so here ya go.

we seriously lived in these things. if it werent for the bellagio crest on the chest i would have taken it home. i would have felt guilty every time i wore it if i saw the that crest... all morality aside, the bellagio was too kind to us to steal from.

ohh yeah. that was just the pool. so awesome.
weirdest show ever. it was worth it to see the cirque part though.

this may have been the very best part. anyways, it was fun--thank you bellagio for your graciousness and nightly chocolates on our pillows with wind down music. the only way to do vegas.
