I found this painting of pilgrims online and i just absolutely loved it. I'm not all high tech, and I can't figure out how to scale it down, so I'm not sure if I'm okay with the hugeness of it.

Urban Outfitters

Okay, so i know that it seems like i am the most materialistic girl ever because i always post things that i want, but this time i have some credit to this store, so naturally i was browsing to see what i should use it on.

I have had a love hate relationship with urban outfitters, and still do. sometimes i just can't get into their stuff and then sometimes, such as this summer, i get (pres from the boyf) an adorable dress that i love so much and it falls apart, literally while i'm wearing it. yeah, sucky. but i took it back and now have some credit to use. these are a few things that i love from there right now. unfortunately my credit won't cover all of probably any of these things (because i used some of it for something else) and seeing as how i'm on the strictest of strict budgets who knows when i'll ever get to use the credit. but i can still like these things.

Matiko Studded Leather Flat (some of the pics are small because i couldn't save the larger image, so you'll have to look past the tinyness of the photo)

Minnetonka Triple Fringe Boot
Seychelles Marguerite Heel (i've gotten into heels lately. I sold all but one pair of mine last year cause i never wore them but now i want more)
We Who See Fringe Boot (Mel bought this pair last year and I loved them on her, and again small pic)
Sparkle and Fade Ruffle Top Romper (i love rompers, how cute is this, it could be worn with tights under for fall/winter and then go into spring and summer alone)
Urban Renewal Johann Alice Dress
Urban Renewal Johann Lacy Luck Dress
Yeah, i want these things. sooo cute. all from urban.

I heart Veronica and Logan

I am so completely obsessed with Veronica Mars. I just barely finished the first season last night after a few days of watching and just barely picked up the second season today. I love pretty much every boy in the show. Logan, who is adorable and hilarious and love love love. Then there's Leo who is a dreamy dreamboat, a police officer (hello uniform? although not my fav uniform, but still) and i love love love and adore him. Wallace is so cute, at first i wanted them to have some sort of fling, but i now realize he is better of as her bro, but that doesn't mean i find him any less lovable! Weevil was definitely my first veronica mars love. he's part of a biker gang, so there's the bad boy thing going, he's very witty and again, so lovable. i do have to admit that i was never a duncan fan. i dislike the name, and he's just a lame character, he always has this distracted look on his face, like, he doesn't have a single intelligible thought running through his head. yeah, i'm so obsessed. and it's such bad timing because i just got the third installment of the hunger games series, Mockingjay. so i'm trying to balance the two and i'm halfway through mockingjay so i guess i'm doing okay but i function much easier when i only have one thing to obsess over besides the boyf. (cause he takes up much of my obsession time)

if you didn't figure it out that's logan and veronica in the pic above.

it's been a while since i've blogged so i feel like i should do an update.

Since my last blog I've moved a third time, (it's such a freaking long story you probably shouldn't ask). And with moving a third time my roomie and i had to find someone to take over our lease for our old place. This has probably been the most stressful thing that's happened in my life (well second, i can definitely think of something before this). Our landlord was crazy and since he had us signed on a lease he could be as picky as he wanted about getting new tenants. it was abso-freakin-lutely ridiculous. so for august i paid rent on two apartments, which brings me to the next update. I'm so broke it's not even funny. I don't think i've ever been this broke before (well actually i have, but it didn't matter then) and it's kind of weird. part of me is a little freaked out about it, but the other part of me knows that in the end everything will be okay. i mean, i can always make more money and it's not like i have anyone depending on me so i think it'll all be okay. although i won't be going out to eat anytime soon (so don't ask for restaurant recommendations).

also, school started today. hooray, or not. i thought i was going to kill someone at the bookstore today it was so crowded and packed. why did everyone have to be like me and wait till the first day of school to buy their books? and one of my books isn't at the store yet, and that's never happened to me before. but it's a book i desperately need. so i guess i'll be hanging out at the library for a while tomorrow using the copy on reserve. I did decide to order a copy from amazon, and it's about $20 cheaper so that's a plus, but it'll be a while before it's here.

in other news i can't decide whether to have my next comp. be a macbook or an ipad (not that i will be purchasing one in quite a while, like, not till next spring or probably summer). i wasn't an ipad fan at first but then i realized that it does everything a computer does. and even though i spend countless hours at work looking at the apple website drooling over the macbooks, and flipping through the ads for them on ksl i'm wondering if an ipad might be the better, and cheaper, purchase for me. of course, i'd have to get one of the 3g ones, and i'd have to get the accessories (like the keyboard and stand). but i really like that you can sign up for internet whenever you want, you don't have to create an account for it and it lets you know when you're getting close to reaching your limit and if you need to upgrade. probably the only thing i'm not sure about it is that i have an iphone and would my getting an ipad make my iphone obsolete? because it will do everything my iphone does except call and text. maybe i should wait till my contract is up in a year and then downgrade before i get an ipad? or should i just save up a few more hundred dollars and get the macbook? i don't know. i just don't know. i'd love any and all opinions on this matter.
