thursday night update.

how is it almost friday?? we've got a busy weekend ahead of us. but let's slow down on this, even a thursday night in the year of our lord two thousand sixteen, & take stock of where we're at.


oh my gosh, crazy ex-girlfriend!! have you watched any? i had lots of initial reservations about it; the marketing was just not great, & despite the pro-feminist explanations of the show creators (which i do understand, don't get me wrong) i still find the title problematic, at the very least. in fact, i had totally written off this show & forgotten about it. but then, cultural sheep that i am, rachel bloom won a golden globe for her role as rebecca bunch, & i was totally like, "that show won a gg? maybe i'll give it a try..." & the rest is history. while crazy ex can get a little silly at times, it's also really fun & clever, & i've found myself telling pretty much everybody to watch it. 

listening to:

"kettering" by the antlers isn't a new song at all, but it's just too beautiful not to be shared:

also miike snow has a new album coming out in just a week or two, so i thought i'd share an oldie-but-goodie song of theirs that i've loved for many moons. plus i've had the happy experience of discovering that the driving beat of its opening notes often match up perfectly with my running pace. plus plus the music video is all sorts of beautiful "wtf?!"-ery (that burning deer head tho??!), so, all good things.

things to read: 

a definitive guide to emojis.

whatever happened to television's most famous couples? this one escalated quickly--& hilariously. watch out for the syndrome!

surprising facts about teenagers.

excited about:

i just bought ^ this cozy number ^ recently & i can't wait for it to land on my doorstep. a jumpsuit made out of jersey?? with a drawstring waist??! i'll be the coziest bear in all the land.

speaking of jumpsuits, i'm very, very tempted to buy ^ this one. ^

i just created a new pinterest board, full of mostly etsy goodies, where i've been pinning stuff like craaaaaaazy. so many cute things to dream of buying, so little time! look at this spoon who's just happy to be here!

miscellaneous/internet things of note:

if you're looking for the next great instagram account to follow, look no further than stephen mcmennamy (@smcmennamy). the stuff he does is so coooool. check it:

& lastly but not leastly, my wunderkind friend kathryn recently created a tumblr about japanese snacks that's almost too cute & beautiful for its own good. other than google image'd photos of tom hardy, it is the most aesthetically pleasing thing on the internet right now. someone will offer her a book deal in

mid-february catch up.


let's start with my trip to washington in the middle of january. my dad was being relieved of a long-time, heavy-workload-type church responsibility, & my mom was like, "wouldn't it be nice if all of his kids could be there when we say 'adios, amigo' to it?" it was a quick trip: i flew to seattle on a friday night, then took the red eye back sunday night. it gave me enough time to snuggle with these little bugs:

no less than three people peeked in on asher & adelaide's little baths at any given time:

(this adelaide/uncle eli interaction!!!)

I loved spending a minute or two with these people:

my solo trip (i never realized how much like a spa a non-child airplane ride can be??!) meant norah & ben got to spend a delightful little weekend together, all the while killing me with cuteness by sending these photos:

if i actually documented every time ben & i accidentally matched, though? would be a lot of documentation:

our dear newlywed friend stephanie came to town a few weekends ago for a visit & it was such a joy:

& then there's this priceless photo we took at an admittedly pretttttty sketchy mcdonald's (the one that just so happens to be next to steph's old place) before steph & michael headed back to FL. diet cokes with lime all around!

& norah's neck displaying some serious skill:

this blog post felt like the most random pastiche of photos & moments ever, so....sorry?

fall la la la la, la la la laaaaa.

i've had this blog post sitting as a draft in my blogger thing-y for SO long & i'm just now FINALLY getting around to doing anything about it. these are oldddd photos from fall & i'm just going to zip right through them with as few captions as possible:

no other caption needed:

loved seeing amanda at a mutual friend's baby shower (we roomed on the same floor our freshman year at byu! how is it that all friendships you make as a college freshman indestructibly last the rest of your life?)

yay for face poking!

at a candlelight vigil in protest of a recent policy the lds church released:

we usually have dinner after norah goes to sleep, but every once in a while we all eat together, giving me the wonderful chance to take photos of ben mid-chew:

ughghghghg this photo, these two!!

one of us in these photos is not okay with norah's hella early wakeup times, but the two other people in this photo seem okay with it:

but then that one person warmed up to the early time of the day, i guess (me. that person who doesn't like norah's hella early wakeup times is me. does that surprise...anyone?? ha):

loveeee this one:

morning cuddles:

sweet & cozy at the doctor's office (norah had to get a few shots! tear)

this one of them looking into each other's eyes! heart eyes emoji for days:

bright-eyes bathtime girl:

another insanely cute bedtime story photo (we love that book ben's reading! the illustrator is one of my favorites, she's done a few children's books)

norah's red bonnet! such a wardrobe superstar:

i remember this day we were at the playground was SO cold. i popped norah's gloves on right after i took this, but i cannot wait until she walks & no longer has to touch the cold ground crawling around.

that's it for now!
