First week of school, check!

  Wow, another week has flown by and I didn't even blog once! So, so sorry. Promise to keep up with it in the future! Anyways, this week I started my second semester at the ASU campus downtown. I am taking four classes that run Monday through Thursday and I am hopefully getting an internship soon so that I have something else to do! So far all of my classes seem good, nothing too stressful has occurred yet and I'm loving being back downtown. 

  Most of this week was spent at school, shopping with my mom, and spending time with John Scott. Here is a list of a few random things that I also did during the week:

-Had my very first pumpkin spice latte of the season! Thanks Gina!
-Went to the Diamondbacks vs. Astros baseball game at Chase stadium with Scott, Lindsay, Brian, and baby Emerson! 
-Saw FUN play at Zia records. I also spotted Sam while I was in there and heard that Jim Adkins was in the building as well.
-Went to Ikea and bought little tiny stuffed animals for baby Em and baby Peter.
-Had lunch at Tammie Coe Cakes!
-Purchase an extremely cute pair of Oxfords.
-Drank a ton of iced tea!

  Today Scott and I are taking it easy. We had brunch at Einstiens, hit up a few thrift stores, and for the past two hours I've been working on homework and he has been working on a few art projects. Tonight we are going to our friend Andy's to see his new place and have dinner. 

  Hope you all had a wonderful week/weekend!

Wow, i've already been home a whole week!

That's right, as of today I've been back in lovely Phoenix, Arizona for a whole week and I honestly couldn't be happier!

Last Sunday I flew, on a very, very small plane, from Pocatello, Idaho to Salt Lake City, UTah. After a bumpy ride, a walk across the tarmack, and a starbucks run I was back on a much larger plane that was headed towards Phoenix. About an hour and a half later I was off the plane and speed walking through the terminal I was back in the arms of my love and everything virtually felt right in the world again. I can't even explain the feeling when Scott and I are finally reunited after having spent such a long time apart. All I can say is he makes my heart swoon and feel absolutely complete. <3

Anyways, after being reunited with my 81 year old grandma not too long afterwards the feeling of actually being home sunk in and I felt overjoyed and so blessed to finally be home.

For your knitting pleasure....

I started knitting this scarf last December and continued working on it through January, then I got kind of bored with it and stopped. Yesterday I decided that it was finally time to put the kneedles to rest and finish the thing! I made it for myself and can't wait to wear it this fall/winter. It's the most lovely pumpkin spice color you'll ever see!

In other news I will be flying home to Phoenix in t-minus 2 days! I absolutely can't wait. See you all hopefully soon!

10 Things i L O V E Sunday!

Has it really been a whole week since I last blogged?! My apologies dears, it's been a busy week. 

Anyways, I spent the last week in Logan, Utah. Logan is located about 60ish miles outside of Salt Lake City and is a big town with little city charm. I spent the most of the week hanging out at Borders/Starbucks, and making things. I had a few plans with my friend Kate but none of them seem to work out, which was ok because she ended up coming to visit me on Thursday night with all of her friends! That was the only day I got to see her unfortunately, she was having a rough week and didn't have much free time, but I'm so happy I got to at least spend a little time with her.

Friday I worked all day long, and just when I was done with work a got a text from my good friend Chase saying he was in town and coming to visit me! So I spent a few hours hanging out with Chase and his best friend Cade and Cade's little brother. 

Saturday was yet again another long work day, but at the end of it Chase came to visit me again and I got to see his sweet new Harley. 

All in all it was a pretty good week. It was really great to see my friends that I usually only get to see once or twice a year. 

Ok, now it's on to my 10 things for this week, GO:

1. Coffee flavored frozen yogurt. Earlier I bought some at Smith's and I have to say it was deliciousss!

2. 15 dollar, grey Old Navy jackets! I'm in love with the one I just bought! Such a good deal!

3. My new drink-coffee-less plan! Let's see how it works. I'm gonna try one week no coffee, and then when I'm at the airport next Sunday I'll get some Sbucks! Greatttt plan!

4. This adorable picture of Zooey Deschannel and Ben Gibbard<3 

5. The idea that in about a month pumpkin spice is coming back to Starbucks! Ahhh can't wait!

6. This photo of Ashley Olsen:

7. This local (PHX area) girl's handmade clothing/headbands, check out her site:

8. How my lovely boyfriend decorates his work apron<3:

9. These lovely Steve Madden boots:

10. The fact that I just booked a flight from Pocatello to Salt Lake to Phoenix for the 16th! Ahhh so, so excited! I will officially be back in Phoenix at exactly 5:25 pm. I have been waiting for this day for so long and I'm so excited that it's almost here. Oh, and I'm almost positive I will be back in John Scott's arms by 5:26 FYI<3
