Here are some tid + bits of life!
Honestly not too much has been going on around here.
The wedding has been the highlight of my life lately, but I'll let you enjoy my not-so-exciting life with some pictures. :)
We went on a field trip to the local zoo last week at camp! It was really nice to get out of the J and our regular routine. Her favorite thing was watching the fish, which was unfortunate because I greatly dislike fish when they are massive and ugly. We probably spent a good 45 minutes of our 2 hour trip watching the fish. Anything to make her happy though! When we did finally venture out, I was super excited to see the elephants. Of course, she was incredibly uninterested in elephants, but she loved the xylophone right outside of the exhibit!
I made this picture smaller because, well, who really wants to see a scorpion that large? My dad and I were walking around our property and he lifted up an old boat tube that was in the dirt, and this sucker went running from underneath it. You probably can't tell, but the thing is huge! It is the second largest scorpion I have ever seen. And apparently it just wasn't my night because shortly after, as I was packing Tuck up to bring him home with me, a huge black widow spider climbed out of the towel that was under his tank right by my hand. It was so scary and I was paranoid all night that it had bitten me without me knowing and I was going to lose my hand or something. A little dramatic? No - fully warranted!
I am loving my new bathroom! I recently moved...rooms. I am still in the same house but since two of my roommates moved out I moved across the house into the master bedroom! Due to my
lazy nature busy schedule I haven't been able to fully organize my bedroom, but I think my bathroom looks damn good! ;)
Speaking of roommates, my amazing new roommates got me this record player for my birthday! They knew I wanted one ever since we went to Goodwill and I found a record player. I really wanted to buy it (it was only $7!) but I put it down for literally ten seconds and some guy came and swooped it up. So tragic. But now that I have this beauty I am so happy! Then my daddy so generously gave me all his records! I decided that I would listen to every single record he gave me - currently I'm jammin' to REO Speedwagon!
Last night I went to Pasco Kitchen & Lounge with a couple friends. This place was the cutest, and they only use/serve local ingredients. I had some mini tacos and then my drink is on the left, which is a Boss Lady's Strawberry Fields (Bombay Sapphire gin, house-made strawberry cordial, Belstar sparkling wine, freshly squeezed lemon). It was so yummy! My friend Sayra had a Peach Barrel (Woodford Reserve Bourbon, muddled peach and mint leaves, Benedictine, freshly squeezed lemon juice, peach and old fashioned bitters) and then Becca had a delicious water. I love her response to when a waiter asks if she wants a drink, "I'm 20 and Mormon, so no thank you!" Haha, she is super adorable, and the ultimate DD. ;)
The above three pictures are a few that Dillon has sent me from Germany! I'm not going to lie, I am super jealous! He seems to be having an amazing time - he does have class every morning during the week but they have done a lot of fun tours of the cities. As happy as I am for him, I would by lying if I said I don't have a countdown for when he finally comes back to the States. This nine hour time difference thing is just not working for me!
Lastly, please keep Colorado in your thoughts and prayers as the Black Forest fire continues to blaze. It is the most destructive fire in Colorado's history, already destroying around 360 homes and is (last I heard) only 5% contained. The Waldo Canyon fire last year had my heart racing as D was evacuated from the Academy due to the fire being so close. This fire hits close to home again as my cousins were evacuated from their home a couple days ago and the fire is only about 1 mile from their home. Honestly, I have tears in my eyes just thinking about it because their home has become a kind of second home to me when I visit D, and I just can't imagine my cousin not having a home to go back to.
I am sorry to leave it on such a sad note, but I for one am happy it is finally Friday and finally pay day! I hope this Friday is joyous and that the weekend is even better!
