journaling rocks!

I love journaling. I have quite a number of journals stored up from when I was little. Sometime last year I was cleaning out my room when I found a few of my old journals. I started going back through them. I was amazed and intrigued by some of the things I had written down! Things that I'd forgotten about, things that made me laugh, things that made me cry, things that made me happy.
Thats when I decided that one of my resolutions this year was that I would start keeping a journal again. And I'm proud to say that I've kept that resolution.

I've been following this blog for awhile now and at the beginning of the year she started a project called 52Q. She puts up a journaling prompt every week. Every week I've been writing them down but I've never taken the time to do anything else. Well that changed last week. Now that I'm 6 months behind, I decided to start. So I did...and here are my first few.

week one
52Q - week 1 q
52Q - week 1 a

week two
52Q - week 2 q
52Q - week 2 a

week three
52Q - week 3 q
52Q - week 3 a

Really, you should do it. Its fun...its a stress-reliever...and its a way to keep track of your life RIGHT NOW. Take it and interpret it however you want. If you need inspiration, check out the flickr group. But do this project. Seriously.

I'm back!

To blogworld that is. Unfortunately, I really didn't go anywhere.
I've just been feeling very blahhhh lately and very uninspired.
So this is going to be short.
But not to worry...I have other posts planned.
So I will be back again. And very soon this time.

Today I:

was happy.
ran 10 miles.
got kissed by the sun.
ate a lime popsicle.
wrote a letter.
became friends with a yellow butterfly.
drank too much diet coke.
made bran muffins.
decided I wanted to learn karate.
decided I'm going to open an etsy shop.

I'll leave you with this awesome time lapse video my sister made. She's awesome. And so are time lapse videos. I think I'm going to make one someday.

very busy week.

This week has been busy busy busy. Monday was just nuts and I was super tired by the time I got home from work that night. On Tuesday Sarah and I went shopping at the Gateway and then went to Matt (Matt as in Andy's brother) and Ashley's wedding dinner. Matt looked so very handsome and Ashley was gorgeous. They both looked so happy and cute! It kind of made me want to get married. Just a little bit. :] And it made me miss Andy. A whole lot. Wednesday was Kelbel's graduation. On Thursday I observed some more ultrasounds. I actually got to do the first part of a couple of the exams. So fun! I'm going to love it! That night me and Kelli were going to go to the Owl City/Classic Crime concert but we didn't because I'm too scared to drive in Salt Lake. So is she. Today I worked and then went to Matt and Ashley's reception. It was beautiful! It was almost EXACTLY what I have imagined mine looking like! It was an outside reception, Nate's (another one of Andy's brothers) band, Lokalgrown, was playing, there were cute litte white chairs and tables, cute flowery centerpieces, a yummy lemon-lime drink, delicious cake aaaaand her wedding video rocked.

Oh! I got my holga pictures back. Um, only about 5 of the 12 pictures turned out. The rest were either double exposed, too bright, too dark, or didn't work because I left the lens cap on. :] This one was my favorite.

I wish I would have known that I put black and white film in there! I have a lot of practicing to do obviously. I've already started on my next roll so everyone, please cross your fingers!
This also reminds me...I need to get a negative scanner....

I've had some time to squeeze in a little scrapbooking this week. This is a page I made celebrating our 5 year anniversary. And the next picture is of a card I made. Felt and buttons are my favorite. :]

I'll be finishing up my busy week tomorrow by running 13.1 miles, hitting a couple estate sales, going out to eat for Kelbel's graduation celebration, and working.

Now I'm off to move and organize my crafting supplies. Wish me luck!
