Dear lovely blog friends,

So sorry I've been so M.I.A. lately. I've been terribly busy with school and work, and frankly just have not had the time to blog. I sincerely hope that you will forgive me.

Love always,


Anyways, this past weekend I spent my time with my nose stuck in Pride and Prejudice, drinking LOTS of coffee, and doing office work for my parents.

Sunday was a special day though and I was able to go to my favorite chain coffee shop (Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf) and get a bit more homework done, all while enjoying a nice iced coffee (they use espresso shots for their iced coffee so it was actually an iced americano). After Scott got off of work (early too!) we went to Whole Foods to go shopping for picnic food (we're having a picnic tomorrow during my lunch break at school). After roaming around the beautiful aisles of Whole Foods for awhile, we ended up decided to leave and go to Cafe Luna for GIANT quessadillas with guacamole and sour cream, and then going to Sprouts afterwards to make our purchases.

Today I had a Media Law test first this morning, and ended up acing it by the way. After I got done with my test I got an iced americano and camped out at the Starbucks on my campus for a little internet pursuing, and information gathering for an article I just finished writing. In case anyone is wondering, the article I finished is a pre-review of a screening of "Dear Jack" that is happening at my school (Arizona State University) on Wednesday.

For those of you who haven't heard, "Dear Jack" is a documentary about Andrew McMahon, singer of Jack's Mannequin and Something Corporate, and follows him from the day he was diagnosed with leukemia in 2005, through his process of treatment, and ultimately ends with him being in full recover. Andrew has been a long-time hero of mine, and I highly suggest that everyone check out "Dear Jack" and also look at the Dear Jack Foundation website, dedicated to helping raising funds and spreading awareness of the fight against leukemia. The website can be found at: http://www.dearjackfoundation.com/

Tomorrow, as mentioned before, Scott is coming down to see me on my lunch break from school and we are going to have a cute picnic in the park. Last Thursday I saw a group of really cute kids having a picnic in the beautiful green grass that covers the park across the street from my school, and seriously felt inspired to have a picnic of my own. Pictures to come after the picnic!

On a side note, yesterday I watched Whip It for the first time and loved it! Ellen Page had such a great personality in the film, and I love that Landon Pigg played her love interest. Landon is the one who sings that song "Falling in love at a coffee shop." Has anyone seen the video for that song? It's so cute! Look:

Ok, time to finish packing our picnic lunch and read more of Pride and Prejudice.

I've missed you all! Look forward to more posts much sooner!
