can't wait

These people are coming for Thaksgiving, and I absolutely can not wait. mostly for the endless squeezing of cheeks that will ensue but it will also be fun to see my brother and his wife.

a half WHAT???

yesterday my sister in law convinced me to run the Salt Lake half marathon with her in April. how in the world am i going to do this? i'm okay with my slow 1 mile jog everyday and i barely make it on my once a week 2 mile runs. just looking at the course map makes me nervous. it will be amazing if i can actually manage to do it, but as of right now i'm a little skeptical.

little shop of shavs

This woman is so talented. this is one of my other wishes, to be a decent artist. I even emailed her today about her prices, just to see if it's something i could afford. i'd absolutely love to have one. check out her stuff on her site Little Shop of Shavs.  
Of all the portraits she has on her blog these three are def. my favs. it's so fun to see how she takes a photograph and transforms it into a whole new piece of art.

socks, socks, socks

first of all i love to say "socks". and secondly i adore my mens authentic boot socks with reinforced toe for extra warmth. it sounds kind of gross but i want to wear them everyday. over my tights (which is where they are currently), over leggings, and anyway possible. love 'em

i feel so snuggly in them. perfect for fall/winter

if wishes were...bobbypins then i'd be rich

lately i can't help but have a few wishful thoughts in my head
such as:
i wish i had long hair, like, actual long hair. people always say, "you're hair is getting so long" and yes, it is longer than when it was 3 inches, but it's not very long in the grand scheme of hair lengths.
also, i wish i was a good photographer, that is a talent i really wish i had.
i wish i was just slightly older, wiser and somewhat richer (not to buy material things) so i could support myself. some part of me feels so held back by the fact that i still live at home. i can't wait till i can make my own meals, and actually enjoy making them for myself, and grocery shopping (that is a real fantasy of mine), or keeping my "own place" clean (it's as though it doesn't matter now whether my room is clean or not). And it's not like i couldn't make myself dinner at home now, but for some reason it's not the same. it's as though none of that can happen for me until i'm on my own. and my home is no longer my home, as if i'm waiting for an actual home to belong to and not just a house.
it's all very frustrating.

Fall Break '09

taken me a while to get my pictures on my computer but i finally did.

for fall break a bunch of us went camping in Escalante. I haven't been to many of the major national parks even though i do live in Utah, but of the few i have been to this has to be one of my favorite camping trips so far. and i don't want to attribute it all to the fact that i got to go on a camping trip with my boyf. but that definitely made it that much better. we went on some really fun hikes but the best was probably the "Spooky" slot canyon. There were some points where even the skinniest person couldn't walk straight through, they would definitely have to turn to the side.

these are just a few of the many pics taken.
