Smelly Markers

Has your roommate ever made you a poster using markers that smell like grapes when you're having one of those awful days where you just keep crying about everything? And then you don't even realize until the next day that they put a heart on it with a stick figure drawing of you and a boy? I bet you haven't because Joanna is the best. 
I was already upset that I had to leave Sarai and (I hate to say this but it's true) beautiful Utah for Rexburg, I hadn't done any of my homework over the weekend so I had a ton to do and then I smashed my thumb in the window. I burst out crying and Joanna knew exactly what to do. She cut up some bananas, handed me some nutella and told me to eat. And then made that poster. 
Perfection!

I miss Nancy already.
I want her to come to Provo, and live with me.
I hate that she's gone back to Rexburg
It's a black hole that stole Nancy
I hope I see her soon

Today was a little bit awful actually. I had to see Nancy off, and Dane and I got in a fight, mostly cause I was inconsiderate, and he stonewalled me. Which was awful. But my home teachers were amazing today, and church was delightful, and I played basketball with Mitch during visiting hours, which was hilarious. Apparently I jump like an elf when I throw a ball.

But Dane and I are not in a fight anymore, which is so great. It was weird because the weekend was so delightful, and I was so happy, so the goodbye was awful, putting me in a bad mood, causing it to be difficult to be patient about boyfriend problems.
But we talked, and now I'm happy :)

Love, Sarai

PS:
Do you dig the jumping pictures?

So Close

Today Nancy is visiting me. As in, she is coming to Provo to see me, and she's staying for two nights! I might die of happiness right now. She's going to be here pretty soon, but I'm not quite sure when. But basically, I haven't been this excited to see anyone in a long time. Life is good :)

Read this post, and you'll understand why :)

Basically, I miss Nancy so much it hurts my heart a little bit when we talk on the phone. But soon she'll be here, and all night long will be cupcakes, movies, and lots of squealing/screaming...

I warned you :)

Love, Sarai

Classical Music Is Out To Get Me



shoes: Ross pants: F21 shirt: Sarai's necklace: gifted


GROSSSSSS

Classical music is out to get me. I got home, ate some food, turned up the classical music, pulled out the homework, and lo and behold, it's two hours later and all of my homework is done. 
That classical music brings out my mad hyper-focus skills. Now I just don't know what to do with all of this extra time. I did go a little crazy with photo editing though. It's probably best not to put outfit pictures in different colors but it's awesome. And these are from New Years. Probably should've put these up a long time ago but whatever... I didn't have my classical music powers to help me.

I love my hat. I have an obsession with hats, but especially with gorgeous floppy ones like this.
And that's all I have to say about that.

Well except I also got about five million compliments today about it. People kept telling me that they loved that I can rock the hat. Made me smile quite a bit :)

Also, today was just wonderful in general. Classes were good, I got to hang out with a friend who gave me exciting news (mum's the word), and I ate soup from a bread bowl. Does life get any better than this? I think not my friends, I think not.

Love, Sarai

This is the lovely art

Poodle Hair

This morning, I honestly had the poofiest most poodle-like hair that a straight-haired girl can possibly have. I curled my hair last night and pinned each curl while it was still hot so that I would have curly hair without having to wake up to do it. And boy was it curly. So curly I had to pat it down very carefully. It was an adventure for me.

Also this morning I worked for an hour just to train, and by the end of this week I'll be taking my key test... which means I'll officially have a key to the store very very soon. Most exciting thing that's happened to me in a very long time. I am such a working girl... dang.

I feel like I haven't been able to see Dane all that much lately... which makes me sad. But luckily in a few minutes I'm running over to see him :)

Also, have y'all watched Once Upon a Time lately? I'm obsessed. Prince charming is pretty much my dream man...

Love, Sarai

Dearest

I've been spending a lot of time with this lady lately. 'This lady' is also known as the other part of our threesome, Celeste. Friday night we played walley ball, it's like volleyball except the ball is different and you can use the walls. She definitely kicked butt and doesn't know how to control her super strength. 
Anyways, I love her and we're just plain awesome. I'm glad she's basically my neighbor.

p.s. this next week is going to be awesome on here! i'm visiting sarai this weekend so that means a butt load of pictures to come.

Church was amazing today. I don't know exactly what happened to make it so amazing though... maybe it was the fact that the lesson was based on each of our personal experiences with service and charity. It was just so insightful, and so humbling to hear people's stories about why charity is so important in our lives. It just made me feel so happy, and I felt like I needed to help everyone, or at least recognize every person that has done anything remotely charitable in my life. I talked specifically about my Mama, and my brother, because they're both such fantastic people. It was just a lovely meeting. And sacrament was so beautiful-it was all about Joseph Smith, and the first vision. I was certainly inspired by it :)

And now, I have a picture of my friend Alyssa, who's outfit was so cute I just had to put it up here :)








I love that she mixed patterns, and that belt, and those buttons. Love it. End of story.

Love, Sarai

Just listening to this gave me chills :)

Something to Be Said

Tights-No idea
Booties-Thrifted

I've been thinking about it lately, and I've realized there really is something to be said about the perfect way that my girl shoulders fit right under a boy's (my boy, duh) arm. I love that perfect fit-it makes long car rides less awful and more cozy.

That's all I have to say about my life at the moment, thanks.

And for my obsession right now...

I'm buying bracelets a lot lately. I never buy bracelets! I don't wear them! Until now, that is. Now I love them.

PS: I wish the weather were doing this all the time, but especially right now


Also, I'm obsessed with these songs right now:




PSSST! I might be going to Guster's concert with my lovely friend Audrey :)
