Lately, Visually.

Also being the complete nerd that I am, two of my favorite apps on my iPhone (Cecilia) are
Instagram (ashleypalmer) & HeyTell.
Look me up & share the love if you enjoy your smart phone as much as I do.

It was red, & yellow & green & brown & scarlet & black...

I love the musical Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
la la love. 
I have every song memorized & it just makes for a jolly good time.
The Hale in Salt Lake does such a good job.
I saw it with Klayton in August, & then I went again with my favorites.
Favorite: Rachel's fashion item, or as I like to call it
The Blue Mink.
us with Joseph or as I like to call him
Mr. Hottie Biscotti with a naughty body.
They've added some shows due to demand, so if you have the opportunity grab your colored coat & get up to the Hale in West Valley.
You certainly don't want this door closed to you!

La la Autumn lovin

Who wants to join me?

Roommates on 1050 East

My best friend Heather moved into my home on 1050 East to be my roommate last week!
Decor was in place to really welcome her upon arrival,
Heather isn't exactly a BYU fan, so I cut out some pictures
of her head & wrote some commentary that Heather probably
wouldn't be caught dead or alive saying.
Below is Heather simply radiating her first minute (night) spirit in our room!
We do everything together,
including trying out new hairstyles like the sock bun out together.
We even have our "pick me up" inspiration wall up & running.
Lucky Heather simply loves it when I take stalker
pictures of her on my iPhone & then edit them
for even cuter results.
Needless to say Heather is my best friend & having her live with the people I love most has made my life perfectly complete.

Little People, Big World

BYU is a huge place people!
I feel so small.
I'm a junior(?) but I sometimes feel like the university's slowest & confused freshman.
The night before my first day of school I was in fact the most unprepared co-ed on campus.
-I hadn't bought a single text book.
-I didn't know where any of my classes were.
-I didn't have a parking pass.
-I hadn't paid tuition.
But thanks to my mom who still takes good care of her adult 20-year-old, I found my way around just fine.
& now I am just as prepared as the rest of my fellow collegiates. 
(but still learning a great deal as to how things work at this large university)
I'm living at home (to save money for my big sojourn coming up in merely a year[!!!!])
& therefore I enjoy 25 minute car bopping, karaoke singing drives every morning in the 7ish am region.

I don't know that I would say I LOVE BYU yet, but I don't want to waste a single day being unhappy or missing past experiences, so I am choosing to quite enjoying my time here.
& do you want to know what I do LOVE?
All of my professors & classes. 
I enjoy every last one of them. 
Which is a good sign.
Props to BYU for hiring good professors!
(& props to me for enrolling in these classes? ha)
Deseret Book in Provo
Since I am the poorest, but also the luckiest, I am enjoying working both of my jobs.
Carriage Cove office in Provo
Both of my jobs are great, & I am making a promise to NOT procrastinate the day of my repentance!
(aka do my homework early to prevent unnecessary heartache)
For those of you in school, here's to hoping being back at school is making you happy, just like me:)

County Fairs & Other Delicious Splendor

My last summer fun consisted of grabbing delightful comedian Jennifer Russell & hitting up Brigham City for our final summer adventure with the charismatic & hilarious Aubrie Tilley.
We went to the Box Elder County Fair,
Aub loved (loved loved loved)the farm animals,
 while Jen kept a perfectly safe distance from the milk cows.
Cheesecake on a stick wasn't exactly tasty,
 but then we went home & painted nails with Jordan & Austin.
 After a night full of laughter, we made chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast,
 & went to church.
 Jordan took us on a spin on his new motorcycle,
 & then we had to bid farewell.
It was a fast paced 24 hours full of laughter, love & spooning.
Great last summer adventure before I began my 1st year (junior year of college) @BYU.
