rock pebbles blasting into my eyeballs






where i got it: shirt, belt & purse- forever 21 // skirt-ross // shoes-american eagle


-That moment when you make green bean casserole because you're super domesticated like that, but it tastes a little funny. Husband asks which cream of mushroom soup you used, and you say the only can we had. He said he's had that since he came to school like 3 years ago (freakin sick) and kept meaning to throw it out. So I dig the can out of the garbage and behold, it expired two years ago. If I fall over dead these next couple days guess we'll know why. 


-BYU-Idaho is known for quick marriages (nickname BYU-I do). Basically there are many desperate people over here who would marry just about anyone. I actually knew a girl who had a list of boys names (in writing) that she would marry if they asked her to marry them right here and there. I've seen 3" binders full of wedding plans and cut out pictures (person wasn't even dating anyone). Crazy stuff happens here. Moral of the story, people love marriage up here. And anyone without a ring is the equivalent to a hunk of bloody meat hanging from a tree in the Sahara. And guess what, my ring is in the jewelers for two weeks because we're having my one year anniversary band put on it.  Let's see how interesting this gets, shall we?


xo,

  1. Love your outfit and i didn't know Idaho was knows for quick marriages. It's kind of sad. Instead of focusing on marrying just anyone, people should focus on themselves and finding someone they can be happy with.

    1. Thanks Agnes! I don't think it's the whole state of Idaho, just the university I attend because the culture is so centered on families. I know each individual is different and we find the right person when we're supposed to but I don't believe in marrying the first person that comes along because that's the easiest option. I think you need to find out who you are, and what truly makes you happy. And then take the time to date, because dating is the most exciting part of a relationship, it's so new and spontaneous. But I completely agree with you, marriage is forever, so you need to know that person is someone you'll be happy to spend forever with.

    1. You know I have never been a big bag person either, I always see all these adorable bloggers with their adorable accessories and I'm just not into that. But this bag. Man. From the moment I saw it at the store I feel in love. I basically cart it around with me EVERYWHERE.
      Thanks for reading Sue!

    1. Thanks Suzzie! Haha yes, Provo and Rexburg are complete parallels, different places but going the same way. It's true though, marriage is just ingrained in our culture, and I'm glad it is. If I wasn't LDS I wouldn't have gotten married when I did, but I'm so glad I am married because I have learned so much about myself and how to become better, and have never loved deeper. Marriage is amazing, sometimes difficult, but the most rewarding thing I've ever experienced.

  12. Love your outfit and those wedge heeled shoes are fantastic! And I can totally relate about using expired food cans and not realizing it at first! I now make it a point to check the expiration date on everything!
