What makes you happy?

For some reason, my bosses like to pay me for not working, which is QUITE alright with me. Today this came to my head when I was listening to some music. I'm not really sure what to do with it.. Maybe I'll buy a bigger book and start another altered book about things that make me happy on a daily basis..? Any other ideas?

The number one thing that is making me happy right now:
Dave Matthews Band

I go all my life without listening to them, until this past week. Now I can't get enough! I can't believe I've deprived myself of this beauty. (I put one of their songs on here for your benefit!)

I like this idea I have of a new book (: I can work with that!

What's making you happy right now?

No, I'm not getting married, and I'm no where close to being engaged, but I DID just find the colors that I want my wedding to be! Thanks to Lindsey working for American Crafts and having me look at their blog, I found this!!

Is that not gorgeous, or what?! I really really love the patterns too! So, when that day comes, make sure you pick some cute wrapping paper for my presents, so everything's perfect and matching! (:

Also, quick update on my Midterm: I finished the test within 7 minutes, (shorter than that even, I think) and I did in fact get to leave right when I was done! Can't complain about a 10 minute class!! I also tried being creative last night.. Turned out terribly wrong! I used Dove chocolate wrappers and put them all over a page, (with all the cute sayings on them) and it was HIDEOUS! So I went to bed early, disappointed in myself. Seven Peaks today should make me feel better though! Plus, I'm going to Moab tomorrow with some friends.. Hopefully it's fun!! (Maybe I'll get someone to fix my camera really fast today so I can take it this weekend!)

I'm in the mood

to be creative again (: I've had a long weekend of NO creativity and studying like a mad woman, so I deserve it, right? Oh wait.. I have to take my midterm today. Hopefully I can take it and leave and not have to be there the whole two and a half hours.. If that's the case.. Maybe I'll postpone my creative-ness. But I already know every question that's going to be on the midterm (thank goodness I have an awesome teacher) and I know all the answers too! (thanks to my awesome teacher, haha) Linds and I are finally going to use our Seven Peaks passes tomorrow after work! PRAY that it stays nice so we'll get tan!! [We all know Lindsey needs it (; ] Kidding, Linds. Anyways, I've been at work too long, it's time to leave! Have a good Wednesday!

This won't be long..

But I'm extremely proud of myself!! We had a get-together with some friends today for Memorial Day.. Activities including: BBQ, slack lining, kickball.. and fun!! And it really was such a fun day, but the thing I'm most proud of, is that I TOOK 11 STEPS ON THE SLACK LINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's almost all the way across! I couldn't believe it!!!

Plus, I've been hanging out with a pretty cool kid (:

Here are two pictures from the other day when Reece and I went to the mountains? and had tin foil dinners, and played with charcoal!! We found out they draw pretty well on faces and cement!

Anyways, I'm off to bed to get some sleep for what I know will be a stressful day tomorrow :/

Wonderful Weekends (:

For some reason this past week, my body decided to be extremely dumb and get SUPER SICK! Fortunately, I was feeling a little better on Saturday, enough to go to MAE!! It was AMAZING!! There were 4 bands that played before them, Tokyo, Larusso, Barcelona and PersonL(didn't really like them) AND THEN IT WAS TIME! I can't even tell you how excited I was to actually be seeing them in person. They are amazing! We ended up getting these really cool looking shirts, Mae's EP and Barcelona's cd. (Barcelona is from Seattle!! Wooo hoo! Go Washington!) While we were waiting in line, we got fliers for upcoming concerts, and one that stuck out to me was LYDIA. You can go to their website and listen to some of their music, but they're playing on June 6th and I'm going!! I'm extremely excited for that! ALSO, my new friends down in Provo living at Carraige Cove told me about the Relient K concert that is on June 4th that I just bought a ticket for last night! Out of the 18 years of my life, I'd been to two concerts: Nsync in 4th grade, and Kenny Chesney/Rascal Flatts.. a few years ago. Now within one month I'm going to 3 new ones?!? I'm definitely living the life! AND I LOVE IT! Plus, tickets are pretty cheap too (: $10?! Can't say no to that!

Anyways, here's a couple pictures, one when we were waiting in line to get into the theater, and the other is with our 3D glasses on for the last couple of songs that Mae did with a 3D image thing on the screen behind them. Did I mention that Mae was FREAKING AMAZING?! I'll be there in a heartbeat next time they come to Utah!

Altered book page finished!!

GO TAKE A LOOK!! Be sure to tell me what you think!!

"And in the morning, I will find my heart"

I love being creative now that I can actually do something about it! Going home in an hour or so and I'm going to start a couple pages in my altered book. I CAN'T WAIT!! I'll post pictures of the finished products, SO STAY TUNED!! (:
I HAVE TO SUCK ON HALLS?! I really don't understand how I got sick so fast! I was at work on Tuesday, happy as a clam, but when 12:00 in the afternoon rolled around, suddenly I had the worst sore throat and I could barley even breathe! It literally came on that fast. So as the days carry on, I continue to suffer.. "Sexy voice" as my Mom and Kevin told me last night (which sounds like a man.. if you didn't catch on to that), extremely bad throat hurting, and I swear I blow my nose every 10 minutes. Not to mention how hard it is to breathe when I'm trying to sleep. And I cough ALL DAY LONG!! Goodness gracious.. Poor me. Haha, but life's good! Hoskins comes home tomorrow! That's weird.. we'll see how that goes. And on Saturday is the Mae concert!*&#@$@*&!@*! They are amazing, and I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THEM LIVE!!!!!!!!!!! I'm also wearing a bed time shirt to work (; Shh.. don't tell!

Happy Thursday!
