{I love buttercup ranunculuses. I wish I could have fresh flowers on my kitchen table everyday. T.J. probably gets sick of me hinting daily by saying, “Oh aren’t those flowers soooo pretty?” “Oh wow, I would love to have those at home!” “Wow, that girl is so lucky!” “T.J. I just want you to get me flowers!”}

{I kind of am getting nervous (okay, I’m really anxious) about what I’m going to do after graduation. I am going to apply to the New York Internship for the spring. So I’ll walk in April, but graduate once the internship is over. That will be an amazing experience and really be a jumpstart to my career as a media planner. But I guess because I am unsure if I will find a job in the area after the internship scares me to death. And then there’s the whole grad school thing. I have always thought I would go to grad school. I know if I wait, I won’t want to go or I’ll have kids and won’t have time to go. So, if I want to go to grad school, I really should go next year. I have been investigating a little bit and asking around, and I have been getting sooooo many answers and opinions. I know it ultimately needs to be my choice and what is best for both T.J. and me. But that is going to require a lot of faith. Pray for me?}

{I have been on a cooking frenzy, but I’ve barely eaten any of it. Fortunately we have had a lot of people over and T has been eating a lot (usually I have to remind him to eat). But it has been really fun to try new recipes and learn new skills. For example, I made two sets of cupcakes. One of them required me to make a marshmallow topping (which I didn’t know until after I tried the icing and I thought, wow, I just made a marshmallow). I had to stir the topping in a bowl over a pot of boiling water for about 15 minutes. I eventually gave up because we don’t have an electric mixer and by the end of the 15 minutes, I was sweating like crazy and my hands were about to fall off. I also made chicken salad for the week. It took me like 5 minutes and now we have a great lunch all week! And yesterday I made caramel sticky buns for the ward missionaries and T.J.’s graphic design club that was coming over. I burned my tongue trying to taste the boiling caramel that looked so delicious, it still feels raw. }

{We have had a fly in our house for over a week now. I thought flies were supposed to only live a few days!}

{I bought two baskets of mums for our front porch last Wednesday. They are about 95% dead right now. What am I doing wrong? I water them everyday. They get enough sun. It’s horribly sad. Turns out I can’t even keep a plant alive…}

{Can I just say I was extremely satisfied with the premiers of The Office and Glee last week? I am so excited for both of those seasons and am so happy the premiers did not disappoint.}

{I am ready for fall. When a season begins, I put away most of the clothes from the past season and pull out the new season’s clothes. It is my favorite thing about changing seasons (except the leaves during the fall). This way, it feels like you get brand new clothes every few months, your closet holds all your clothes nicely, and you don’t find white summer blouses in your closet when it is snowing outside. Anyway, I put away the majority of my summer clothes on Labor Day. I know that was way to0 early of me, I just was excited for my fall/winter clothes. They’re. My. Favorite. I love my boots. (oops, I mean like-“We don’t love clothes” right, mom?) I like my sweaters. I like my fall purses. BUT it was 90 degrees today. I had to force myself to wear a t-shirt because wearing my cardigans simply could not pass. When will the fall begin? The leaves know it’s fall. When will the weather cooperate?}
