Weekly Ten: May 24, 2013

Hello from Montana!

Yes, I’m still here, but instead of graduation, we are now prepping for my best friend’s wedding!

the beautiful bride-to-be and our friend--a bride-to-be in October! It's truly an epidemic.

the beautiful bride-to-be and our friend–a bride-to-be in October! It’s truly an epidemic.

I’m so happy for Kristin and Roy! There are such a fun couple and I can’t wait to see where their life takes them! In addition, I can’t wait for the festivities…last night, the bachelorette party, today the rehearsal dinner, tomorrow the WEDDING, and Sunday the wedding brunch! A whole weekend of fun and love celebrations. My favorite kind.

I hope you have a great long weekend ahead, as well!

1. An interesting rumor is swirling around Denver that we are getting this shop, a Portland classic. If it’s true, I would be pretttttty happy, but my diet would be ruined.

2. Although I will not be in Denver this weekend, I will be missing out on this. Yep, that’s what we’re¬†supposed to do with our degrees…we’ll see. ūüôā

3. Hilarious video of kids trying foods for the first time.

4. I’m addicted to this game. It’s a fun way to see what different parts of the world look like!

5. If you haven’t seen this video (This Kid Just Died. What He Left Behind) yet, you must. It¬†turned me into a giant puddle (maybe so much I couldn’t even finish it…). Watch it anyway. It’s worth it! RIP, Zach. (Here’s the celebrity video of his song, too).

6. Even though the news coming out of Oklahoma is not so great, here is proof that even in a disaster like this, everything is not always lost…like your pets.

7. Like this video I shared last week, these best road trips in America remind me how much I need to see in this country!

8. I follow this guy on Instagram…his girlfriend leads him around the world! A fun and unique idea.

9. The creator of the movie Brave bashes Disney for re-imagining the lead character in her Disney Princess role. What do you think?

10. I’ll be in London on my birthday this year (if that sentence isn’t my favorite ever…). We are thinking of doing this as I’m obsessed with all things Harry Potter (and we will for sure be riding the Harry Potter train in Scotland!). England is an English major’s dream, really–so many novels have been set there! Any literary tours or spots recommended? I’d love to hear them!

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.

This weekend was full of the best things: a spontaneous visit from a life-long friend (on her BIRTHDAY, no less!), quality time with many other friends, and crossing to-do’s off my Colorado Wish List! And, you can’t forget the beer, … Continue reading
