therapy by crafting. and netflix.

this weekend, anna helped me overcome my ocd slash fear of using pretty paper. i have had this issue for years and this was the first time i was able to face it head on and win. after much debate and driving around, anna helped me see the ridiculousness that was me buying new paper instead of using the cute paper i already had [and have had for over a year]. thanks anna!
then i dedicated my saturday to making awesome invites and watching downton abbey. maybe the entire first season. idk.
that night, leslie finished up the invites while i wrote my lesson for relief society. and made super cute handouts [with the same paper]. and listened to the most amazing valentine’s playlist ever. i’d say it was a successful saturday.
aren’t these stamps amazing? they matched the invites perfectly.

life as a college graduate.

you must be wondering what i have been doing with all this wonderful free time i have now that i have no school [or work…please bless]. well, i will tell you. it has not been ill spent. for the most part.
hit up park city with some friends. no celeb sightings though. don’t remind me.
brought out the jb calendar . bean museum fun with the kiddos. i had to put on a brave face for a snake sighting
new shoes. thank you santa for my tj maxx gift card . some relaxation inspiration
 a birthday dinner and some bff chats with leslie and sarah.
 date night with the men’s volleyball team . best mug ever
relief society meeting… guess which treats are mine . fhe with niki #bestever
 and would you look at that. it’s official.

it’s raining, men.

i have recently become obsessed with old men. yes. i just said those words.
harrison ford. 
homeboy knows what’s up. he had me at ‘uh, everything’s fine, situation normal’ in star wars and ‘i hate snakes!’ as indiana jones. basically he is the ultimate bad a slash good guy and i love him for it. if i ever tell a guy i love him and he responds ‘i know’, i will marry him on the spot, no questions asked. also, archeologists are now at the top of my list of people i need to date asap.
robert redford. 
before there was brad pitt, there was robert redford. (although, the resemblance is uncanny). robert’s perfectly coiffed hair, intellectual spirit, and variety of characters make for a man you cannot deny. he is a baseball genius in the natural, a smooth swindler in the sting, and the cowboy i would like to take me away in butch cassidy and the sundance kid. and then he gives michelle pfeiffer a foot massage in up close and personal. stop it right now.
colin firth. 
there is a reason that it was divinely decided long ago that colin firth should play mr. darcy. honestly, if you have not seen the bbc version of pride and prejudice, do yourself a favor and buy some ice cream, pizza, a super soft blanket, and set aside five hours as soon as humanly possible in order to right this wrong. and then do not even get me started on the king’s speech, the importance of being earnest, love actually, and what a girl wants.
the end.
