we're definitely not in seattle anymore


Just in case anyone was wondering, this song has become my new favorite pumping iron beat. Seriosuly though. It's constantly on repeat. Looking for a cardio song that's a steady pace and makes you want to dance your lovies (my word for love handles) off? This is it guys, this is is. 








where i got it: shirt-target // necklace, belt, skirt-forever 21 // shoes-american eagle (old)

Remember that one time I told you guys Josh got me the most beautiful skirt that words cannot describe? This.is.it. I literally crave this outfit when I'm not wearing it. That's how unhealthy our relationship is. It's like a little disgusting, but I can't even help myself.

Alright. Now some updates and stories.

-Just in case you were wondering, banana cream pie yogurt does not, I repeat, does NOT taste like it's label. It's actually really gross in case you were wondering.

-There's this pregnancy class at BYU-I and I decided to take it to better educate myself so it won't scare me as much (side note, this could possibly end up scaring me more). Well during our first class everyone goes around the room and introduces themselves and says why they're taking the class. There's countless "I just love babies and know I'll be a mom one day," "my husband and I want to have a baby so I thought I'd learn more about pregnancy," even a, "I know as soon as we get married my fiancé is going to knock me up" which are all beautiful answers, but just not how I feel at this specific time. 

Then they get to me, "I'm taking this class because pregnancy and this whole 'birthing' thing freak me out. Like really freak me out. So my husband said I should take this class and learn more about it so I'll want to have kids one day and won't end up adopting 10 cats." (it could happen) Some girls found it humorous, others looked at me like I just committed adultery right there in front of them.

What's with me and putting myself in awkward situations these days? I need to ingrain in my mind that Idahoans are more conservative than northwesters. Regardless, I think I'd like to go back to the diverse city of Seattle, I think I fit in more there. 


xo,

  1. Bahah oh my goodness I love your pregnancy class story - I'm a native Californian living in Utah right now and I feel the same way, I don't really fit in here that well. At least not like I did where there was a bit more diversity!

    1. Thanks Lisa! Well I curled my hair the day before with a thin iron then in the morning I just brushed through it. Then on each side I twitsed my hair into a kind of twist braid, but only using two sections, taking more hair with each twist (if that even makes sense? haha). Then I just threw that together in a pony tail.

  10. That skirt is so, so, so gorgeous! I can understand your relationship with it. But I'm pretty sure that a pregnancy class would only serve to make me more freaked out by pregnancy. My idea is that if I know as little about it as possible, then I won't be too scared, and once I'm pregnant, I'll find some way to face the route with courage and fortitude, I'm sure. :P

  11. Your photo locale looks so much like the Columbia Basin! But it must be somewhere in Idaho...I guess the desert west has a sort of generic look. Darling outfit...great photos. I'd miss it when I wasn't wearing it too...it looks both pretty and comfy. Lynaea @ EveryDayBloom.com

  18. Haha, I'm pretty sure I would have said something really similar in that class. I want kids someday, but the whole process just freaks me out a little bit :)

    The skirt is lovely - I can see why you love it!

  19. You can always come out and watch me experience my last pregnancy and birth. LOL! Although that would probably NOT help your phobia... ;)
