I needed to take these on my birthday. I have stockpiles of glitter for no reason and love the bokeh it gives. Plus, I just really wanted to do it.

Sorry, Shelk. 🙂


Didn’t realize the HUGE mess it made along with the million of mosquito bites we accumulated while shooting these. When I changed clothes confetti and glitter fell.everywhere. It required an immediate shower. Then, this.




Today my sister is 21. She’s been waiting for this day only so she can go to a bar and order a cosmo. (And buy moscato.)

She’s crazy just like me and we’re always on the same wavelength. (Even though it’s mostly a stupid one.) She is beautiful inside and out (cliche, but true) and will forever be a role model for me. I am so incredibly proud of her for moving away to college and living alone, something I could never do. She’s made friends and has become a light of Christ to them. We share the same passions and the same goals and I love talking about how we’re progressing towards those things and seeing how God is lining up our lives. She plays with my dog and does my hair for all of my important events. She documents our lives with her camera so the rest of us don’t have to. (And because she loves it and because she rocks at it.) She makes us all laugh and invented my favorite word, FLARP. If we could have we would have been born twins. It’d really just make this whole thing easier.

So Shel, from me, Jason, Pepper, Little Bit, and Toonces we wish you the happiest of birthdays.

Now go get a cosmo already.

What We’ve Been Up To

My incredibly lucky sister got to go to NYC this week and skip school. Texas A&M-Commerce’s choir got invited to sing at Carnegie Hall! How AMAZING is that?! She kept sending me pictures all week and these were my favorites.
-View from her hotel at night
-The FOUR STORY Forever21.
-Central Park

It’s been a pretty lazy week, despite my monstrous music history test I had to study for. (I think I did alright! Here’s to hoping for a B…)
-LB has discovered the sink.
-The COOLEST decal I saw parked next to me Wednesday. LOST fans? Anyone?
-A favorite picture my sister took of us.
-The Blue Man Group was playing at the Cowan center (the big auditorium at UT) and they’re “stuff” was sitting in the hallway beside my voice lesson. Crazy cool.
-Just saw this on our A/C temp controller yesterday. If you’ve been in a choir you know who this guy is. If not, google him!
-Homemade calzones. 🙂
-Our new couches on the trailer.
-The best place to eat near us!
-Picking up some books at the library.

All I did yesterday was workout (every day this week so far!), do all the dishes from this shin-dig (finally–embarrassing), laundry, and listen to the Civil Wars on Grooveshark. A very productive day I’d say. 🙂

How was your week?
