My Heart Is In France (soon)

I designed this shirt on CafePress.com to wear occasionally while my boy is in France. He’s not there yet, but I just found out he’ll be leaving May 7th! It’s all very exciting. Also, you can see in the photo that I’ve got my Blue Slant Tip nails (oooooh, lovelyyy).

The back is also really awesome, but I didn’t get a good photo before my camera died, so we will make a part two eventually.

I’ve decided I’m going to make a 24 month goal list. Learn French is on there. Oh, life! It’s really just full of opportunities! Here’s to hoping I’ll actually have a productive Monday!

Strawberry Cupcakes with Strawberry Frosting

image

Hello! Yesterday morning, I made these strawberry cupcakes, completely from scratch, including the frosting! They look really good, don’t they?!

Well, they weren’t! They were basically gross. The frosting was way too sweet and the cupcakes weren’t sweet enough. My sister said they tasted like cornbread.

My brother-in-law ate like 6, so I have a feeling he thought they were just fine, although I now question his tastes.

Will I ever learn to bake? I’m thinking no. I just can’t bake, okay?! Sorry, future husband and future children.

Simple Spring Nails

So sorry for the horrible quality! I just used scotch tape, it was very simple. Later I added a white stripe to the dividing line on the ring finger. It looked amazing! I’d add a photo, but I cut my nails since it makes playing the piano, Ukulele and typing very difficult.

A Package

Sundays have become Craft Sundays for me, mostly because I don’t ever feel like I have very much to do on Sundays. I have a boyfriend on a mission for my Church, so I sent him a package on Friday. I put such cute stuff in it! At least, I think I did. I used all neon colors and frankly, it hurts the eyes to look at, but I’m hoping he enjoyed it!

The best thing about being in the same city as the MTC (where he currently is) is that I can get packages to him same day, no matter the size, for $2. It’s very convenient. I can obviously also get letters to him same day. They don’t even charge postage, how COOL.

Well, I’m off to send him a letter and tonight I’ll be doing more things to make him another package! Yay, craftiness!

Little tiny quotes that he can insert into his journal or put on the mirror, or do whatever, honestly.

Since he’ll be serving in France, I wrote up the Articles of Faith (the basic beliefs of our Church) in french, then put a pretty bow on it.

The whole thing, packed and stuffed to the top, right before I sealed it and sent it!

The contents! It was fun to put together! AH! I hope he liked it! I hope I get a letter today…

I honestly don’t know how I can keep this up for another 24 months without a breakdown of some kind…

Just Words

Life is ironic. What even is there to say, really? We all know it. I feel–what do I feel…I feel like I have a lot to do with my life. I also don’t really feel like writing anything on here at the moment.

I don’t feel like doing much at all, but I know there’s a lot to do. Life will never be the same after today. Maybe one day I’ll laugh about all this. Now, I just kind of feel like rolling my eyes.

Enough complaining for one day, I think. Maybe not, actually.

I feel like it feels when it’s just a little too cold for what you’re wearing, but not cold enough for your jacket. I feel like it feels to drink a soda you can tell is about to go flat. I feel like it feels to have a bunch of candy around you, but none of your favorite kind. I feel like it feels to wait a really long time for something, only to realize it’s probably going not going to come. I feel like it feels to smudge your nail polish to the point where it’s noticeable up close, but not bad enough to make it worth redoing. I feel like it feels to have someone hint at you what they want you to do without actually saying it–and therefore, not technically telling you what to do. I feel like it feels to have two boys tell you they want to marry you within a day.

Don’t make me explain the last one. Blegh, life.

Easter (a little late)

Easter was a wonderful time for me last week! It has always been one of my favorite holidays. I spent it listening to a wonderful talk on the resurrection of the Savior and then a little party for the man of my dreams who’s moving to France on Wednesday. More on that tomorrow.

At the office, I have taken over decorating duties, as well as taking care of our dear Swag. For fun, I placed little Easter eggs around the office one night after everyone had left! I was in California the next morning, so I don’t know how they reacted, but I had a good time doing it. We even had a golden egg!

Check back tomorrow for one of the most heartfelt posts I’ll ever have on the blog! It’s going to be amazing!

Spring Fever

So I’m still in love with Spring! Also, I’m totally aware in the 2nd photo you can see the top of my tights. I blame the wind. And the photos seem weirdly out of focus a little, but THAT’S what happens when you can’t clone yourself to take photos. Of yourself. No, really, thank you Dad for taking them. (Next time press the button half way so it can auto focus on me)

Cardigan: Forever21 (it’s a new fav of mine); Shirt: Papaya; Skirt: Papaya; Shoes: Charlotte Russe (also wore these shoes here)

Dandelion Nails

Oh, lucky lucky US! The darling Anna has once again given us the pleasure of an adorable nail design! It has come perfectly in time for Spring. I must try this!

I started with plain mint green nail polish and let it dry completely on my nails.

Then on my thumb I painted what should look like a stem for a dandelion in black with a nail art brush.

After which I simply added white little “seeds” to my other fingers like I had blown the dandelion and the seeds had floated to my other fingers!

Keep in mind you can use whatever colors you want and that it’s not hard to paint lines all over your fingers! It’s simple but looks cute when you’re finished!

Anna <3

See more from Anna!

Victoria’s Secret Products

I’m the world’s biggest fan of this body spray I bought the other day! It smells amazing, but is never over powering. It’s a very delicate scent. It is my new go-to.

Also, this shampoo and conditioner I bought…smells amazing. I’ve had a couple people ask me if it’s what I was wearing. I have to admit, I like it when people recognize it!

Still in California til Wednesday! Updating the blog from my phone right now, at Knott’s Berry Farm! So many photos to cone later this week and tomorrow!

The Yardhouse

Parmesan Crusted Chicken. It was really good! And plated very attractively. I spent the whole day walking around and built up quite the appetite.

It was a great environment…and of course, the best of company!
