Toilet Paper Tearer

It's amazing how many things around me that I don't notice. Especially, when it is something created to make my life a lot easier. Yesterday, at work, I realized there is a toilet paper tearer on the dispenser! If you haven't seen them in public bathrooms, they are like the sharp edges on a tin foil box.

I used it. My toilet paper had a nice smooth edge and left it all neat for the next person. I am so impressed by this.

Whitworth Weekend

This weekend was a blast! I went to celebrate Tom's completion of the MCAT on Friday night. My awesome friend's Austen, Ian, and Jesse had a house show featuring their band Franklin. It was such a fun time, we all danced around their living room.  I am sad that this year is just about to end, I love Whitworth and all the people, there really is no place I'd rather be. It brings me so much joy.

FaceTime may be one of my favorite things. Today, Drew called me through FaceTime and it was such a splendid surprise to see his face in the middle of the day.

That boy makes me laugh a lot.

Most of our conversations involve making the ugliest face possible, but it really works for the both of us. I am such a good ugly face maker.

Drew, thanks for being compassionate, goofy, and always unique. Everyday I am thankful for you.

Seattle and Sunshine

Drew in Kirkland enjoyin' his smoothie. Isn't he a good lookin fella?

This weekend I got to visit Drew in Seattle. It is possibly one of the most exciting things to see him for the first time after being apart.

Anyways, there were too many wonderful things packed into a weekend- I got sunshine and time with some of my favorite people in this world.

PS- I came home to a house that smells like cauliflower, it smells funny!

I have needed new windshield wipers for months now, and since it is raining all the time and sometimes snowing, I figured today would be a good day to get those puppies on my car. I stopped by a gas station today and bought some. A nice man in line offered to help me put them on my car, since it can be tricky.

He was pretty confident in his wiper installing skills, but it did not show in his work. I stood there soaking wet in the snow and rain for about an hour as he tried popping them onto my car. He was a persistent guy, and I didn't want to hurt his feelings, so I let him struggle and struggle so he wouldn't embarrass himself too badly. After awhile I called over the gas station worker and he popped them right on. It was an interesting experience, but whoa that man was nice to stand in the snow for so long to help me get my new wipers on! I love seeing how good people can be.

laugh your head off

"A sense of humor... is needed armor. Joy in one's heart and some laughter on one's lips is a sign that the person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life." - Hugh Sidey
Jamie is the girl in the middle. She is my roommate and one of my closest friends. Today, I got to watch her play softball for the first time! She is the DH, cause she kicks butt at hitting that ball. Ann, Jamie, and I have a strong bond going on in our house, and it doesn't get much better than laughing for an entire weekend with these two ladies.

Here is our new gettin down in the kitchen song:
