my summer style

basically my summer style will consist of skirts and t-shirts. stripes, cuffed jeans and men's dress shirts.  dang, i am excited.  also, i plan on not wearing makeup and possibly not doing my hair.

good morning

this song was possibly the best way to start my day:

camping, manti style

so, this weekend a group from my ward went down to manti for the annual manti pageant.  it was a good experience despite anti-mormon protesters and creepy narrator voices. a small group from our ward had decided that we would go camping after the pageant, so as soon as it ended we went about that.... sort of.  the pageant ended pretty close to midnight.  but we didn't immediately go to find a campsite; first we went to mcdonalds.  and, then we went to find a camp location.  by this time it was past one in the morning.  we were all a little sleepy.  so, we decided to pitch our tent in the manti city park, along with the dozens of others.  after some debate we found a spot that was good enough, and we decided that we would sleep out under the stars.  it was lovely.
the next day, we drove into fairview and went on a very short nature walk.  then, we went to a pool (that cost 4 bucks!) and returned to provo just in time to see america get eliminated from the world cup.  but despite it's hiccups, it was a great weekend.

a place to visit

i'm a bit of a hippy.  yeah, total shocker.  and as a hippie i want to take a pilgrimage to this place.  it's Oradour-Sur-Glane, a village that was destroyed during WWII.  it's been left as a it was as a living monument to the horrors of war.  it looks haunting and at the same time very powerful.  one day, i will go here.

haunting, no?

another hair post.

so, i've been getting bored with my hair. i've had this cut for nearly a year now, so of course i'd get bored.  so, after a very quick poll- mostly answered by girls- i've decided to grow my hair out, again.  let's take a little journey down memory lane:

the last picture is a pic of twiggy in the 60s found here.

are you guys excited for this change?  i am.

the most EPIC roadtrip of all time III

once we got up to idaho, the rest of the gang had some delicious burgers made for us, waiting.  after dinner we went bowling.  the next day we went hiking and attempted to go to the hot springs- but they weren't hot yet, so we just went hot tubing instead.

the most EPIC roadtrip of all time II

katie, rob and i drove up to idaho friday afternoon. the others drove up late thursday night.

i can't say i am a huge fan of idaho scenery, but i think it has a slight charm of it's own.

we stopped by this really cool dino and got some fun pictures. i also made this stopmotion video (my first one) of our drive up. the music in it is lisa mitchell's clean white love.

the most EPIC roadtrip of all time I

for memorial day weekend a group of us went up to sunvalley, idaho where our friend, jeff, had a condo.  we had such a blast even if sunvalley wasn't as sunny as we had wanted it to be.

i'm going to have to split this trip up into a couple of posts because i have very little time and there's a lot of ground to cover.

first off, let's meet the gang: matt and sarah are in the front, then in the back (from left to right) we've got me, jeff, will, katie, and robert.

aren't we cute?  here's another group shot.  matt's a little cut off by my head.  sorry.

so these are the crazy kids who i call friends.  more to come.
