The fireflies were going CRAZY at the park last night.

I love the music in the background, it seems as though they are dancing, though I think it was just dinner time.

Good Eats

We (Nate and I) ate WAY too much this weekend. I know I said it before, but we really need to cut back, not just because of our growing stomachs but because of our shrinking bank accounts.

Friday we went to macey's and got icecream. Don't tell anyone, cause they'll run out, but the icecream there is AMAZING. Especially the shakes. But they are a little rich. But cheap and HUGE, and delicious. We only got cones yesterday. But the pb cup shake, well they put 8 WHOLE peanut butter cups in there, that alone costs about as much as they charge for the shake. Try it sometime.

We got a pizza from Walmart. Took it to Nate's and cooked it. Very meaty, and manly (but good for me too) and great.

Saturday afternoon we went to the Farmer's Market in the Pioneer Park. And they have FREE samples of some really yummy things. My favorites were the japanese beef, and honey butter. There are cool crafts and pieces of art and other cool things there as well. Go. We'll probably go again and again and again. Before it ends in October.

Then we went to Los Hermanos. Not the best Mexican food I've ever had, but fresh just made chips. And the food was still really good. Just nothing will beat "my rosas". But they gave us so much food. I got a beef burrito, and it came with rice and beans. Also they get points for the freshness factor, the food was burning hot, as was the plate.

We took a nap. Because we felt so exhausted from eating so much food. Hah! What a terrible excuse. But you know how eating too much makes you sleepy? Just like Thanksgiving.

That night we went to Nicolitalia with Dain, Trist, Emily and Brittany. Nate and I shared a medium pizza. But it was the perfect amount for the 2 of us. They also have pasta, and calzones there. We got a meaty pizza again. Why get anything else, when that is so good. Well, it was delicious, anyway. I'd definitely recommend it, if you're looking for good, not too expensive pizza.

And lastly, the two of us went to Maestro's on Center Street. We each got 2 scoops of gelato. And let me tell you it was DELICIOUS. I don't know if it would compare to all the Italian Gelato I've had, but it was at least pretty darn close. I got raspberry and amaretto to see if it compared to the deliciousness Claire and I partook of in Florence. Nate got coconut and pineapple. They all tasted so fresh. The pineapple especially tasted like I was biting a pineapple, which is my favorite fruit, I think. Anyway, it was very yummy. It wasn't TOO expensive either, not as cheap as our 3 huge scoops for whatever like 2.5 Euros in Venice, but decent nonetheless. We'll probably make it a monthly occurrence to go and I think you should too.

summer nights.

even a minute away and my thoughts rush back to him.
the couple embracing across the street distracts me for only a moment.

the wind blows my hair onto my face. it tickles me.
music plays in the background as i listen to the wind ruffle the leaves.

i love the feeling of these warm summer nights.
the temperature outside is the perfect combination of cool breeze and hot dry air.

i wish summer would last forever, but it seems its already coming to an end.
more than a month till fall classes. till reality.

but we'll love life till then.
and we'll continue on even after.

this is paradise.

7x7

LOVING life.

McFlurries.



Our first round of 7x7. In London, at the Guy Fawkes celebration.

Our second round of 7x7. On the way home from Germany.

McFlurries in Dublin. and EVERY other city we went to.

Bath House in Budapest.

Quantum of Solace. At least a week before it was out in the states, in Dublin.
We woke up early to eat breakfast. Went back to bed. And got up a bit later to eat breakfast again.

Relaxing on St. Charles Bridge in Prague.

At the Austria - Turkey Game.

Windsor Castle was one of my favorites in London.

weekend

The weekend could not come any sooner.

This week has been VERY stressful to say the least. Especially yesterday and this morning. But its all coming to a close and in about 3 hours I'll be done with school again till Monday.

What a glorious thing the weekend is. I hope its as relaxing and fun and wonderful a planned.

wonderful things of unexpectedness

I love these treats



1. A very unexpected introduction occured on Sat. I met Claire's wonderful mother! And another dear friend of Claire's. She's great. And I wish/hope I can be better friends with her.

2. A very unexpected wall post appeared on my FB Wall. She was my Best Friend/Nextdoorneighbor from Bennion. What a lovely surprise. She's doing well. I wish I could go up to SL to see her.

3. A very unexpected friend add on FB. Maybe for a more sneaky purpose. But I still feel completely special that I'm friends with him. Hah!

4. A very unexpected chicken arrived at my house around lunch time. With the cute Nathan. Rotiserrie Chicken from Costco is the best. What a delicious treat.

excitement.

Number 1. Anthony and Jana invited me to go with them, on Aug 6. to the doc appointment to find out if its gonna be a bambino or a bambina. Which also is wonderful news, that I'm going to be an auntie. The baby isn't due till December, but hopefully school will keep me busy enough till then that I won't be too anxious. I can't even imagine being the parent, that would definitely cause a lot of anxiety.


Number 2. I entered a picture in an online photo contest. I doubt it will win, but its still very exciting. I'm still in the 5,000s, but thats out of 40,000. And I've only voted for myself twice. You should vote for me! I decided to enter 2 more today, just to see how they do as well. See what type of photo people like best. Vote for any of them, or all of them. You can vote every few hours. PLEASE?!


Number 3. Its almost the weekend. I've got a lot to do tonight still. Including a German oral presentation to prepare. Yuck. But after 12 tomorrow I'm free again till Monday. We don't have anything planned yet and that might actually be fabulous, cause then we can do whatever we want.


Number 4. I'm getting tan! I'm tanner than one roommate with an Indian father and another with a Guatamalen mother. The cons of that are that one day I will probably get skin cancer, and it shows how white and pasty my stomach/everywhere else inappropriate to show is.


Number 5. We went fly fishing yesterday. Nate doesn't have it totally down yet. Which means I can't actually fish really, cause if he can't do it how could I? But, we caught one that was probably 17 inches. And sadly missed 2 huge fish that each broke the line. I really want to buy myself a bait pole and prove I'm a Utah resident and get a license. We'll see...

Number 6. I took my second Deutsch Kultur Geschichte Test today. I didn't do amazingly on the first one, but I felt really good about this one. I found a good group of guys in the class to study with and I definitely think that helped. Hopefully I did alright, I started the test after and finished before a few people in my class. But I can't imagine writing any more, my hand is killing me, plus I would hate to be in the testing center any longer either.

Number 7. Elise and I signed a contract for fall housing! Actually the contract will be F,W,Sp and Su. But we might try selling the spring and summer contracts so we can find a cheaper deal. We will be living in Strattford 204, in Condo Row. I am thrilled that I will be living so close to campus. It will only take me like 10 minutes (max) to get to classes instead of the current 20. Plus, I'll be living about 1 minute away from my sweetie, instead of the current 8.3.

Number 8. After signing our contracts I went into the Twilight Zone, just to check it out a little, and see if there was any tasty treat for me to snack on. And guess what I found?! Milka bars! Oh my gosh, even though they're more expensive than a regular candy bar I decided to buy two, a normal milk chocolate and hazelnuss. They actually weren't that pricey considering when they weren't on sale at Billa they were about one Euro. They cost about 1.70, but thats only a little more than 1 Euro with the exchange rate. I've eaten about half of the milk chocolate bar, and it is absolutely delicious. Let me know if you want a bite :)

sleep

i fell asleep during the movie last night. a couple different times. but i even said goodbye when it was over.

but for some reason i woke up about every 30 minutes last night feeling like he should still be there. and feeling like i was missing something. and had missed my alarm. at 3:30 in the morning. of course i hadn't slept through my alarm. and when the alarm time got closer i woke up more frequently. until i turned it off and got out of bed.

worst sleep in a long time. i'm not sure why.

i hope everything is okay.
