Im on a kick....and I'm obsessed.

I often find myself getting on kicks and then getting obsessed

One time I was obsessed with buying all the high top shoes I saw.

One time I was obsessed with the song, "My Heart will go On" by Celine and listened to it over and over again til I vomited.  Dang Straight I did.

One time I was obsessed with Josh Hartnett thanks to the movie Pearl Harbor.  Literally, I printed out every picture of him and created a Josh Hartnett mural in my 8th grade locker.  What ever happened to little Joshy?

One time I was obsessed a huge time fantasy of becoming a wedding planner like J.Lo and proceeded to buy every wedding magazine the local grocery store had to offer.  Oh ya....I'm still on that kick.

This time,  but really more for the last 8 months, I have a kick for frozen yogurt.  


It's like it's the answer to all my most recent problems.

Exhibit A:  Oh I feel fat?  Sweet.  I'll just treat myself to some fro-yo piled with cookie dough.

Marry Me Already!!!!

Blouse: J.Crew, Shirt: Target, Skirt: Thrifted, Necklace: Target, Watch: Gift

One time I took a stab at online dating.

Ok....that came out wrong.

One time I got dared to take a stab at online dating.

I took that challenge and signed up for just about the only free dating sight called  YEP.

Let's just talk about this for a second....

Online dating is real funny.

I did all that was required as a "Potential MATE"

1) I put up a real HAWT photoshopped beauty of myself for all to see

2) Made myself look real good by saying that I breed beautiful black stallions, and can do weird crap like balance an egg on my nose.  I don't do either of those things, but naturally a man wants a woman who knows how to ride.  haha

Next came the waiting.  Waiting for what they call "flirts," "winks," and "tickles."  The last one really puzzles me.

One hour later, I got my first "flirt."

My roommates and I huddled around my computer to see who the lucky guy was.  Oy.........

Enter Ling Pei:  A 43 year old Chinese man living in Provo, Utah who said, "I like your picture.  You very beautiful.  We should get together sometimes and discuss our likes and dislikes about life.  Maybe even practice our Chinese together?"  (in case you were wondering I speak broken chinese....)

After a good laugh with the roomies, and a gentle nudge to Ling Pei telling him I wasn't interested, I decided that online dating just wasn't the right fit for moi.

I have stubby nails....

How can I get my nails to look like this?

I always thought woman with long slender nails were so beautiful.  

They remind me of Barbie, or my childhood icon, Carmen San Diego.

I hate my short, stubby nails.  Bah

Any suggestions on how can still achieve these hipster, yet, desirable nail looks?  Pweeze?

 I personally think I look hungover in this picture....but I posted it anyways.  Nobody is perfect...

Coat: J.Crew, Blouse: Anthropologie, Pants: Anthropologie, Shoes: Jessica Simpson 

I see monochromatic outfits all over the blogosphere.  At first, they weirded me out, and then I decided to give it a try.  

I tried.  I loved.  

There something about wearing the same color all over your body that makes you feel like a natural woman.


But I'm serious.  

Comment and link up your favorite monochromatic outfit on the net!

Soul Sisters

 Me and two of my besties that are on the company with me, Kasey and Elise.

 The Whole gang in our glory
 The Jorgensen sisters strike again...

 My Sista and we look alike?

So this last picure....

I did this specific dance move in one of the pieces I was in for our concert this past weekend.  

I had no idea what I looked like doing it, so I asked my friend Elise to take a picture of it. 

I saw it after she took it and I said, "wait, I seriously look like that?  That looks freaking rad!"

Not trying to be vain, but I didn't know I had it in me!!!

I loved our concert this past weekend.  Dancing is so good for my soul, and all the people on the company are my souls sisters.  

Love you all!

Stay tuned tomorrow.  I have a sweeeeeet giveaway happening.

I don't like it when geese hiss at me...

Blouse: from Taiwan, Jacket: J.Crew, Necklace: Borrowed from LauraB, Skirt: Four and Twenty Sailors Boutique (SLC), Shoes: Jessica Simpson, Watch: Christmas Gift

How's for wearing the same jacket two outfits posts in a row?


Story Time.

Two weekends ago I was at a Dance Conference up at Weber State.  

As I was leaving the conference to go to my car, I was eating one of those ambrosial Cadbury Cream Eggs that has that soft delectable fondant in the middle that resembles the yolk of an egg.  So good.

When suddenly, 

I was ambushed by a flock of geese running at me, squawking at me, and doing what they do best--hissing at me.  

To be completely honest, the first thing I thought of was to place this situation with the background music of Richard Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries."

Not kidding guys.  There were ten geese running at me.  What else was I supposed to do?

Right.  I ran away and yelled, "Why the freak are you chasing me!  This is a chocolate egg, not real one you daft heads."

The only thing that one guy with the uni-brow did while walking past me was laugh.

Oh ya?  How bout I throw the egg at your face, and then we'll see who's laughing dude.  

Sorry that was rude.

Anyway....I ran.  They ran after me, still hissing.  

I hid behind my car.  They couldn't find me.  What a great car, right?

When the moment was right I jumped out, screamed so I would scare the crud out of them, and then scared myself by frantically opening my car door and shutting it as fast as humanly possible.  

Never a dull moment.

Boo Hoo....last one.

Well it's finally here, but I'm not sure if I have finally grasped it.

My last dance company concert at BYU.  Boo.

It's going to be a beautiful concert, and we have all been working so hard for it.

I've got the dance injuries and bruises all over the knees to prove so.

You should come if you live nearby.  Like, for reals though.

Also, sometimes I tell people that the girl in the picture is me.....But then I instantly feel bad for lying and say it's not me, but rather my beautifully gorgeous 6'1" friend Jessie--Who is gorgeous!

My Answer for everything? I'm too tired.

I'm a busy busy lad.

Honestly, my blog is at the bottom of the priority list these days.

I teach 16 year old hellians.  Bless them.

I dance til 10 every night.

I work.

I have homework.


Am I complaining?

In the pictures above, I look tired.  Like, real tired.

That's how I'm lookin all the days long right now guys.  

It is what it is.

But next time, I'll try not to wear a men's sweater that makes me look preggers.

I don't think I've ever gone this long without posting. 

But this week has been off the wall.  I had so many projects due this week AKA a 30 page paper.

Last night I was doing homework at my kitchen table, and this morning I woke up with the right side of my face drenched in drool--and the outer part of that circle of drool was all nasty nast with crusty saliva.  

Ya. I bear my soul on this blog.  

Well I'm back.  That paper is behind me, and nothing but research free bliss is ahead of me.  

For your sighting pleasure, I post different wedding dress sleeves.  

I'm in love with the top sleeve.  It's so retro but so unique to me.  My guy would have to say "I do" with a sleeve like that.

"Oh hey lemme get that for ya"

Shoes: Facade c/o Pamela Metcalf, Pantaloons: J.Crew, Blouse: J.Crew, Jacket: F21

Parties can sometimes be great....especially in this story.

I usually give Provo parties all the bad crap they deserve, but this one time it was....different.


This party only had cookies at it, which I thought was ab-surd.  Gimme some brownies or cupcakes for driving all the way over to your house, BRO-YO.

I managed to find the leftover cookie dough from the cookies by acting like I um....owned the place---AKA I opened their fridge and found it in there.  What?


I got carried away munching on mentioned cookie dough and got it all over my face.


The friend I came with who I had known for 3 1/2 years (We went to Jerusalem together) came over and said in the most playing tone ever--like a young babe who is playing with their mobile or a newly discovered rockstar who just got their first gig. (um whoa my brain is random when I write and his reaction really wasn't that extreme.)

Anyway he said, "Oh looks like you have some stuff on your uh..lips.  Hey lemme get it off for you."

He comes in and hesitates, then laughs, then looks at me.  I stare back and say, "'s still on my lips....."  (was that lame for me to say? I was just being playful back, right?)

At any rate, he came in and "got the cookie dough off my lips."

It like, kinda rocked, and I feel like I need to have cookie dough more often.
