birthday fun!

So here it is finally, the birthday update. We'll start off in chronological order, which means me first!
i already told you how much fun my birthday was, and of course i didn't take many photos but i did take a few of the awesome dinner we made.
here is the most amazing pizza i think i've ever had and have made a second time already and plan to make it at least an every other week occurrence, it's sooooo simple, really i don't "cook" but i can do this! and not expensive either!
before the pizza we had some delicious crab but i neglected to take a photo of that. and then for dessert we dipped some strawberries in white chocolate and citrus sugar made from orange and lemon peel. i was a little skeptical of how much i would like the strawberries because white chocolate really isn't my fav but they were so good.
For Jason's bday the breakfast food was so great! we went to ruths diner up emigration for breakfast and I had the most delicious cinnamon rolls dipped in vanilla something with maple syrup, pecans, and lemon cream cheese. it was pretty much a dessert.
Jason chose a pork pulled omlette and i'm honestly not sure which was better, his or mine. i have a really hard time when it comes to deciding breakfast food. do i choose something sweet or something hearty? but it's good when you have someone willing to share, then you can have both!
Lunch and dinner were kind of sad, We packed a lunch to take to Red Butte Garden (which wasn't the sad part plus U students get in free!!) and that was fun to see baby ducks in the pond and very pretty flowers as well as an exceptionally brave, very cute squirrel. it was probably the best salsa (thanks Adair) i've ever had or made (although it's really the only salsa i've ever made). and so simple too! Here's a pic of the potato salad i tried to make that didn't turn out too well. the flavors were good but i didn't cook the potatoes long enough so they were almost raw. yum!
Here's a pic of jason eating the oh so yummy salsa!
I didn't take any pics of dinner but it wasn't the greatest either. I was going to take jason to maddox in Brigham City where i've heard they have great meat selections (jason is definitely a carnivore and i like to indulge as well, plus they raise their own meat) but had heard they had a drive thru version in layton and so i though since that would be a lot closer we'd go there. that was probably a mistake, cause it wasn't any better than kfc. Oh well, it's always fun to try new places i suppose. 

All in all i had a great day spending time with the boyf but i have to apologize to him again that the meals (excepting breakfast) weren't so great. although he tells me he didn't care.

To boyf: I'm so glad we got to celebrate another round of birthdays! hopefully there will be many more to come! You're the best and thanks for always taking care of me!

Tomorrow, Tomorrow!

can i just start out by saying that i LOVE june. School's finally over, and it's both mine and the boyfs birthday in june! My birthday was last week and it was so fun, no work and then boyf and i had a great day togeth with lots of yummy cooking! i'll have to post the pics later of the yummy food.

But, i'm most excited for tomorrow. Since boyfs birthday is on a saturday he doesn't have school (since he's taking summer classes) so i get to spend the WHOLE day with him. i always have to savor theses "whole" days because i usually only get to see him for a few hours everyday when it's late at night and we're both all sleepy and just want to go to bed.
And although someone stole most of his presents from my parents front porch that came in the mail i think it will still be a fun day, i do have a couple small presents for him.

i'll definitely be taking pictures throughout the day and eventually post them to show you just how much fun it was!

the one "bad" thing about....

...not being at the parents house is that i no longer have a computer. And it's not all that bad but i can't add music to my iphone and it's sort of driving me crazy. I did have a lappy once upon a time but for some reason i had this great idea to sell it and have yet to get a new one. i have such little music on my iphone and probably everyday i listen to music on youtube either at work or on my iphone (which is nice, except i can't do other things on it at the same time). mostly right now i'm wishing i had all the glee songs. some might say, why not just listen to cds in the mean time, well to answer your question i do not have a cd player. i have a dvd player that is hooked up to the tv but it's not in my room and it's really crappy and can barely even read copied or mixed cds.

right now the music aspect of my life just sucks. and i really don't like that, music is so fun for me and i love finding new bands and outdoing everyone with my music knowledge, it's probably one of the only things that i am truly good at, as far as something that's not "important" (although i scoff at that notion) and i'm afraid that i'm going to lose that. so right now i'm grieving the loss of my lappy, or my parents computer.


I am wanting this dress. can i have it for $40?? i told myself that i would NOT buy anything else because i truly don't need it but in the catalog when the model has it on it's so cute! oh well, i'll just be pining and pining for it until something else comes along.

please someone, anyone, give me one good justification to buy this dress.

more and more lolzzzzzzzz

Okay, so not only is there lolcats, there's the loldogs which is ihasahotdog (very clever if you ask me) and now i've discovered historic lolz. HILARIOUS! absolutely. here's just a sampling, but you can click here to see more!

in real life...

I saw one of the larger longchamp totes in real life, and they are really big. i still like the big one, but i'm wondering if it's too big. a friend from work has the smaller one and she's able to fit a lot in it so maybe the smaller one would be the smarter choice.

Also, i finally fit into the toothpick style of pant at the crew. it's the real skinny legged one, and i mean, it's not amazing on, but it's better than before. it seems like every few weeks i try them on hoping that will be the time they look great on. finally they aren't so bad on, plus they are 60% off, so i ordered them. after this, i'm done shopping. i don't need anything else this summer, so i really shouldn't buy anything. plus i'm poor as a mouse (know what that's from?). a friend from the crew is doing 30 days of no shopping, and it's going on day 17 i think, so if she can do it so can i.

and for one last update, i'm moving, again. yeah, our current place is okay, but the landlord is changing things on us so we just want to leave asap. so this week we are moving into our new place on L street. i'm pretty excited because my room will actually be decent, plus we each get our own bathrooms, and our own washer and dryer, and a shared backyard patio and fire pit. it's pretty sweet.

I am dying over this longchamp bag (the larger tote) in billberry. on nordy's site there are 23 comments about it and everyone of them is pretty detailed and long about how great this bag is. i feel a twinge of jealousy every time i see someone with one, and when we were in san fran everyone and their mom was carrying one around!

you can buy one for me here since i'm too poor to buy it for myself, and you can justify it even more since my birthday is coming up. thanks!
