Weekly Ten: May 10, 2013

1. If my diet ever ends (who ever thought I would be “shedding for the wedding” as a bridesmaid?) I am eating most of these.

2. I recently purchased this beautiful, useful camera bag. A wonderful travel accessory! I’m in love.

3. A hilarious Mother’s Day mug, and some other gift ideas for the mamas in your life.

4. Prince Harry is coming to Denver! It’s okay, you can be jealous.

5. I just found out my Chinese visa is good for one year. Maybe I should go back and visit the Venice of the East?

6. Speaking of Venice, the Boyfriend and I are visiting the Venice of the North on our mini-European adventure. Maybe someday I’ll see the real Venice…you know, the one in Italy. For now, this will do.

7. I kind of adore Elizabeth Smart. Don’t you? Here is her opinion of abstinence education–it’s worth a read.

8. This blew my mind! Disney villains turned beautiful.

9. Top baby names of 2012 released by Social Security’s annual list. For some reason I always love reading this list and not finding my name on it. Also, I’m pretty sure Emma and Isabella have been in the top ten for decades! But, probably not as long as Elizabeth has been on that list…

10. Speaking of dieting, these are some of the best tips I’ve ever read for living healthier.

Summer It’s A-Coming!

I realized today that I leave for my internship in CHINA in 5 weeks.

FIVE WEEKS, BABY!

Excuse me while I go throw up a little.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m truly excited.

I also have 10,000 things to do before I leave.

Such as…

Go home.

Watch my sister graduate college.

Throw my friend a rockin’ bachelorette party.

Watch my friends get married (and give a speech to 300 people).

Drive back with two of our friends.

Take finals.

PASS finals.

Visit with my mama for one night!

Pack, pack, pack.

Spend as much time with the Boyfriend as possible.

Plan our part of the summer a little more before I leave!

Then…

I LEAVE.

June 11, 2013.

Now I need to go eat a piece of chocolate and write this paper.

p.s. Any ideas for fun bachelorette party games that are mellow? Pass it on 🙂
