Cap and Gown

A little late, but no less important.

I graduated from the BYU. VEIRD.

Sorry I didn't get pics of my graduation outfit.  I kinda forgot, which is sad because it was supa cute.

All you get is the cap and gown.

So it's time to move on to bigger things, which kinda makes me shart a little bit.

Hopefully I'll get over that.

So, where am I going to go?  I'll let you know next week!

Don't you dare BOO Zorro!

I'm posting kinda late tonight, but you can when you can, right?

Today, I watched the movie "The Mask of Zorro."

It's such a freaking good movie.  Catherine Zeta Jones makes my skin sizzle like a well done Sirloin when I watch it.....and it puts a strange desire in me to be a fine Mexican Swordwoman.  

The desire to watch the movie started when I sang "I want to spend my lifetime loving you" (the song that plays during the ending credits of Zorro) at Karaoke last night.

Did I mention that the song was about 100 bars too long, and my partner and I got BOOED? 

Some people have no love for the black masked rider like I.....

A couple of weeks ago, I was talking to this cute boy about inexpensive date ideas.

Look, I may be old-er but I'm not sagging.  Therefore, I still hang out with my own kind--the penniless.  

We googled "inexpensive dates ideas," and found a site that even Martha Stewart would be proud of.  

One of the ideas was to go to a populated place such as Wal-Mart, and take a bag of clothes pins with you.

The object of the game was to pin as many people as you could without having them notice.  Whoever had the most at the end was the winner.

Honestly, I get sick of the "Hey let's do dinner" thing.  

Yes, I like food, but I like pinning clothes pins on mullet sporting, beer bellying, "Angel" shirt wearing, Wal-Mart goers instead. 

I respect the common Wal-Mart goer...

Go try it.  It sounds F.U.N.

Wasatch Contemporary Dance Company!

I am so happy to be blogging about this.  

As in, any opportunity I can have to shout out about the arts I come running.  

Wasatch Contemporary Dance Company is a dance company based out of Utah Valley.

They started about two years ago, and the company is just loaded with talent.

Most of the girls on the company I I have talented friends.  

The company is trying to raise money for their next concert and so that they can keep giving professional dance opportunities to college dance grads like me-self.  

They need all the support they can get SO......

1) Watch this Video.  It's only 5 minutes YO.

2) Go to this site and donate what you can to their cause.  Every dollar counts!

yay. yay. yay.

THE Must Haves

T-shirt: Jcrew, Skirt: J.Crew, Belt: J.Crew, Shoes: J.Crew (I bloody work there!  Can you blame me?) Blazer: Anthropologie, Jewelry: Chicos, Ann Taylor, Lips: Fuchsia Fusion by Revlon

Whilst I have been a pawn on the chess board of fashion, I was told that floral prints are realsies in right now.

Floral blazers, floral pants, floral shoes, floral grills (whoa. Joking.)

I have seen some floral denim on the rise, they all cost my first born.

Don't fret!  You can find floral pants for really cheap.  I just snagged some from H&M for 15 babies. 

find the beauts HERE.

Get your floral now so that you can match with all the blossoms.

It's like's the new thing.

Up in the air...

Shirt: hahaha just kidding.  They're just dance clothes...

This sucks.

I miss dance already, and I need a dance class stats-o-meter.  

Graduating is for the birds you guys.

Alvin Ailey, will you put me on your company?

M.I.A. but not like the band...

Blouse: Thrifted, Tank: Target, Cords: Thrifted, Shoes: Thrifted, Bow: Taiwan, Jewelry: Borrowed from Laura.

Sorry for the MIA"ness!"

It's been a crazy past few days.  

I finished my student teaching.....and I no longer have to say "DANCE MONKEYS DANCE!" to my students anymore.


And Laura has been doing a bunch of weddings, so she has been pretty backed up in the picture taking dept.

I don't really have anything witty to say today.  Shucks.  

I graduate in two weeks and I'm feeling really vulnerable right now.

It's the kind of vulnerable that you feel when you are naked in your own dreams and no one notices but your own self....

YA....You know what I'm talking about.  


Have a good Tuesday.

If I had a money tree...

photo taken from pinterest

I know it's a daft idea, but why didn't God give us money trees?

How lovely it would be to go out back, with a basket in hand, at the beginning of Spring, and harvest your money tree?

God didn't give me one because he knew that I would probably pick the money before it was ripe....kinda like when I was a kid, how I picked our cherries before they were ripe and then they tasted like crud. But seriously.

If I had a money tree, I would buy these beautiful babies that I saw on pinterest.

Thanks Tori Burch for making beautiful footwear.

Not Thanks Tori Burch for charging my whole years rent for them.

You had me at your proper use of you're...

Skirt: Thrifted (GAP), Blouse: Bags that Fit Boutique, Shirt: J.Crew, Belt: Target, Hat: Target. Watch: Gifted, Purse: China Pearl Market

I am by no means a grammar wizard, but for some reason I get really turned on when a guy uses correct grammar.

Especially in texting.  

Please don't text me and say, "How RUQT? ;)"

That makes me think your reading level doesn't extend past 5th grade yearbook signing.  

(Please tell me you wrote that in your yearbooks as well.)

Please text me, "How are you?"  

That's the kind of grammar I could have children with.

P.S.  I'm a different computer right now that doesn't have the HTML code for my giveaway generator.  So, I will post the Downeast winner later tonight!  LOVES!
