occular apparel

I was one of those strange children that really wanted glasses and braces. Now I finally have some glasses. Granted they are just a pair of 3D glasses from the theater with the lenses popped out, but hey- I'm having fun and that is what matters right?

ps - I'm listening to OK Go's new CD "Of the Blue Colour of the Sky" in this picture, I LOVE it :)

... is what brings us here together today :) [haha, gotta love the Princess Bride!]

My RA from my freshman year living in the Dorms of Heritage Halls was married this weekend in the Draper, UT temple! Karina and I attended her reception on Saturday up in Sandy and it was so great to see her so happy with her new husband Bryan. She looked beautiful and it was fun to see her on her happy day!

Their first dance

Me, Ricci, and Karina

mi familia

I have had the chance to spend some time with a lot of my extended family lately and it has been awesome! My cousin Jeremy came up to Utah a few weekends ago and we had some more fun with the Evans family in American Fork! I love spending time with my cousins and just enjoying a break from school and work to be with my family :) We played Apples to Apples again and then some intense rounds of Twister before heading back to Provo. Good times!

Then this past week the Mordues picked me up to take me to Park City to meet up with the Murdocks and go out to dinner together. Tons of aunts and uncles and cousins! I had a blast playing in the car with Gracie and then a great time surrounded by family at Cafe Rio! [Sadly I didn't take any pictures, but I'm counting on Wade to post some on Gracie's Blog :)] It made me so happy to be with so many of my amazing relatives.

"There is something so fulfilling and comforting about being around those who love us."

Naomi said it perfectly :) I love my family!

I can't quite explain why, but I LOVE to look at the clock and see that it is 12:34. Whenever I see it I always yell to my roommates or friends or whoever is near me "ONE TWO THREE FOUR!"

oh the simple joys in life :)

so amazing!

It is amazing how "busy" you can get with so much "free" time. Here's an amazing video that I have become obsessed with as of late :) I love Ok Go! If you haven't seen the video for their song "Here It Goes Again" watch this first!

Then watch this super-awesome creation!

These guys are so creative and fun! All of their music videos are really unique and entertaining :)
