Sunday Morning :)

The best Sunday mornings are the ones when you wake up and know that you have the whole day to relax. I LOVE that. So this week, Josh and I decided to make waffles and eggs for breakfast. Not only was it relaxing, but it was also extremely delish. I couldn't resist a photo:
And then we read this creepy story called "A Rose For Emily" from my Seagull Reader. It was about a wealthy old woman with long grey hair who killed her lover with rat poison when they were like 30. She never left her house after that, and then after she died, they found the man's dead body in the upstairs bed.... and a long grey hair on the other pillow. So basically, she slept with a dead man every night. It was slightly disturbing.

For my 2-D Design class, we had an awesome assignment this past weekend. It was based on letters, and combining them together to create a design. I never really thought about this before we started working with letters, but letters are really, very beautiful. They are so symmetrical and just overall pleasant to look at. I debated between two designs, but decided to turn in the "gJO" design for my final product.

I wish we were doing more projects with letters and photoshop and such, but we are moving on to other things. :( I love you, sisters. Mucho mucho. And thank you for reading my blog. :)

New Favorite Dinner!

So as I scrambled for a quick dinner tonight, I came up with the brilliant idea to top some rice with Italian salad dressing. It was AMAZING!!! And then I warmed that up with a smoked chicken breast that grandpa smoked for me at the ranch before i came to SVU.... yummo. It was so divine. Please try it. I was in too much of a hurry to take a picture though, so I'm sorry... no visual.
I decided that I'm going to be Barbie for halloween. I'm super excited! Next step: the perfect outfit. Shan suggested my black pencil skirt with a silky pink shirt, huge hair, loads of makeup etc. Love it. I feel like I need something sparkly. Now, although GLITTER IS WHAT I LIVE FOR... my wardrobe is lacking in that area. :( Inspire me! And let THIS inspire YOU:
p.s. for the record, my casket and tombstone have to be sparkly and I have to be covered in glitter. ok sistas? Let this also inspire you:

September 23

Yes, I have loads to do, but I must take the time to do an update. Ok. Here are some baked french fries I made last week for my team (3 potatoes doesn't make a whole lot, ps):
Now. Volleyball is good, but also frustrating because there are a lot of young girls that don't seem to have the same "passion to win", if you will. It's fun, irregardless. These are some of the girls and I have a stellar time in the van!
Also, this is my sweet bruise:
It was so fun to have Mom, Suz and Dara come last weekend watch us play some volleyball!! Colton is the illest. I love you all and miss you. As always, check facebook for more pictures. :)
