robots are rad

lately i have had this thing for robots
it just doesn't get much cooler than a cute robot.
this is me messing around in my sketchbook for an assignment in graphic design.
they aren't anything special but they made me happy 
so i am hoping they will do the same for you

have a happy robot weekend everyone.

this girl rocks. one: she reminds me of my sister and that makes my heart happy. two: she makes me laugh every single day. three: her blog is awesome. (here or here) AND she is so easy to take pictures of cause she is such a babe. SCORE!

hello blue eyes. my word. and did you check out her locks? i want them. and her boots. no biggie. =]

these are just the first few i edited. more to come later most likely.

growing up [not a fan]

meet the love of my life (besides my husband of course) my '99 5.7 ss camaro. my baby.

everyone that knows me knows that i am totally and completely head over heels in love with my car.

it is the SEXIEST camaro ever made. hands down.

the phrase "when you turn your car on, does it return the favor?" has never rang more true than with this car. the sexiest most perfect sounding engine ever made.

together we learned how to drag race, how to install sound systems, how to do body work, how to paint a car, how to install a rack and pinion, how to completely redo power steering, how to replace an alternator, and how to get a lot of funny looks.

nothing fixed a bad day better than cruising down a wide open street together or drifting on the farm roads outside of town.

this car inspired me to be an automotive major for a while and sparked my absolute love for cars.

this car helped me be unique and meet lots of great people. it set me apart from every other girl at BYUI.

some of my very favorite memories have this car in them.

but the time has come for us to go our separate ways. 

my baby is getting old and causing my life too much strife and i am running out of rationalizations to hold on. so i am selling my 5.7 for a 1.6. My limo tinted windows and all black leather interior for cloth seats and no cruise control. a stunningly beautiful car for a base model. all because i accidentally grew up. what a sad sad day. =/ 
but the parents are happy because i will now have something that doesn't run the risk of causing thousand dollar disasters at least once a month. that counts for something right?

who would have ever thought i would live in a place that looks like this?

way too freaking cold for me. but like i said before.. at least snow looks pretty in photographs.

sick sick sick

being sick today resulted in...
- looking at shoes online that i can't afford but reeeaallly want. 
- reading way too many blogs
- trying to help someone with their homework while trying to keep snot and tears from falling out of my face onto their computer
- spending lots of time in my bed and in the bathroom
- trying to scheme up ways to make a buck or two

all in all.. a whole lota nothing. such a lazy day. and i still feel like poo. 

i wouldn't recommend reading blogs when you aren't feeling so hot. really? you come home every day after work and school and take pictures of your outfit you wore and then over 100 people have something to say about it.. all while living in rexburg?! you have got to be kidding me. 

on a lighter note... 
my husband is wonderful and took good care of me today and didn't get irritated at all my grumblings. he did the dishes and put away the laundry and made me french toast. (i don't care what is going on in your life.. french toast will ALWAYS make you feel better) oh and for the record.. harpers homemade bread makes the best french toast. 

goal for the week: take more pictures and bring my camera along more often. 
what i am grateful for: another booked wedding. (and french toast)
