Good Day Sunshine

Listening to the Beatles, I am looking out at the window at the cloudy sky. There goes my tanning plans for today, but it leaves me to edit some blog stuff. And that means its nice and cool to do some exercise in the backyard!

I know, I know, the picture behind my header is neither of roses or peaches, but they seem so happy and bring the feeling of sunshine and spring and happiness. So I'm keeping it there. For now at least. 

Right now I'm waiting for my The Complete Novels of Jane Austen Wordsworth Library Collection which is supposed to be a really nice copy.  I looove nice copies of books! It was a good price on Amazon too, I just had to wait a few months for it : )

This last weekend I cleaned out our garage and went through boxes of old books from my parents high school and college years. It's so interesting to read all the comments people left them and seeing their pictures! We really see how much we look like them and how similar we were at the same age. I hope my kids will one day love to read through my yearbooks and see all of my pictures and see how much fun my friends and I had at homecoming and annual school events!
Gosh I miss spirit week, and St. Francis day and community lunches. Even the uniforms! (I loved basically wearing pjs to school for four years.)

First Post!

I'm a fact-loving, book-loving, food obsessed, self proclaimed nerd who never has good experiences with bikes, motorized or not, and has recently come back home after two quarters away at school in Seattle. Can you believe that was the view from my room?!

So instead of going to school this quarter I am trying to read as many books as I can, get my garden all ready for the hot summer, and change my hairstyle. After many years of growing my hair out (hello freshman year!), I am once again chopping it all off. Ok not all of it, but a lot. And no more hippie bangs, which I still love after sporting them for only a year, but I feel like I need some sort of change in my life right now. 

I try to hoard my money, but recently splurged on a $400 blender with the help of my older sister : ) and have to limit the amount of time I spend on amazon since I have more books than I can read in  a year already at home. I am an incredibly messy yet slow eater who has a terrible memory and a very nervous driver. I tend to get a high pitched voice when I am stressed, excited, mad, frustrated, or just wanting to be loud. I get scared very easily and like to be taken care of. I lovee belting out disney sounds to which I only know half the words (part of the memory thing) and have a poster of josh groban over my bed, in which i sleep with my josh groban t-shirt and sip tea in my josh groban mug. It's a sickness, really.

Anyways to anyone who may happen to stumble across this, until next time!
