Recent purchase

I bought a house

And some burnt orange paint. my home was built 1892 and neighbors the Historic district here in Ogden.

I wanted to move out but have never rented...ever. It just didn't make sense in my mind. So I figured out my price range for a poor college student with low or little to none credit and

made an investment. Original windows, but mostly it needs love.

It's on an .25 of an acre. So I can't wait to Til the earth.

You will need to see it in person.

This was $5.00 paint and I have been buying home accessories for years, that interior designer in me. I hadn't match them up before.

but in design, you can trust your eyes... most of the time... Girls belong in this bathroom, Girls being pural means, I need roommates, so leave your husbands for regular dance parties,

Spinach omelets in the morning

Fresh tap water

noteworthy conversatons

The kitchen needs more cabinets but I was excited it was bare and not too over bearing...

it has a sweet green spirit! right?

So it is 3 bedrooms and one bath, half of the house was built with hard wood floors

So I can't decide about carpet.

I am impressed how large the closets are.

Okay so I really don't expect you to give up your wonderful marriage and kids but I am looking for roommate

Or a help meet. Help meet:Noun 1. helpmeet - a helpful partner
better half, married person, partner, spouse, mate - a person's partner in marriage

I mean this second room would make a perfect nursery

Okay well I will try to rent out the nursery to a girl, or use it to make my crafty cards... or my art projects for class.

There is alot of bare walls, after they are sanded down

I kinda want to do a mural or something fun.

This room is extra large with a walk in closet that was referred to as a second bedroom

so This is where I will be..maybe

White walls feel restricting to me and less personality

Everything kinda needs a personality in my life

What what is your favorite type of tree, what grows best. The yard needs me, but I'm committed.

There is a great tree house in the back

but the pine trees are coming down soon

I'm a tree hugger but these ones you can't hug

Working with very old iron

Tempted to flip it, but no plans

I wonder if Mary Poppins needs a roomy.
Email me if you know anyone, or they can email me

My homework was to take the shadows from my photo and make a portrait, I might as well live in a cave, because this homework thing is killing me socially.

So we will see what the teacher says

We had to make the fabric with our paint

It was intense and I'm so happy I'm done

Sorry for holding out on you guys

The weekend is here and all that really means is homework build up. I hope to get it all done tomorrow and that may be a possibly if I'm snowed in.

I went out with my parents tonight to see the performance Thriller, it was intense to say the least.

I can't wait for church! I've missed it terribly.

Today I wore the last sweater with a price tag on it.... even though I havent bought any clothes for two in a half months.

Green sweater from Old navy. $2.49, oh how I will miss those days

BALTIC COLD me and Jacob

It is so cold outside. (compared to Arizona)

I love the fall leaves, I love the colors.

I miss Laura, more each day.

I have to draw a portrait of myself.

My crush and I will be collaborating on something secular together.

I'm learning to listen to my spirit instead of my body.

I have almost been home from my mission one year, this terrifies me.

Jacob 1:26 its my thesis.

My dad was the last man to ask me on a date.

I've eaten more oatmeal in the past 6 weeks than my entire life and I must apologize for the lack thereof

my mom had a class with "p" while I was on my mission. one of his best friends eats sunday dinner with our families on sunday.
He called me, and we had a good talk, but I don't think I should post anymore crush worthy notes on here for fear of scaring him away or rejection. although those two things happen often and I'm used too, my real concern is that there is about 14 other girls on the other end of this rejection, non bloggers I've told (yes even you blog readers and maybe even AjKb). So I am inviting all of you to become 1% less interested in me and him and if you were never interested that is perfect! You know become less invested by choice. I like to consider it a healthy form of preparedness.

I still crush him, but the connection we have socially denotes the rate of him stumbling upon this blog way too high ( and I continue to write that) So I'm nervous for tomorrow, i can't lie.

Maybe what I really meant to blog was if you mess with one, you mess with the whole family, and not I'm Italian

Back to homework

The belief that the third time something is attempted is more likely to succeed than the previous two attempts. It is also used as a good luck charm - SPOKEN JUST BEFORE TRYING something for the third time.
