I don't normally blog about music, because I don't consider myself musically talented in any way, therefore I shouldn't make any recommendations. BUT Sunday I was at Brenna and Ryan's beautiful wedding and Janu and the Whalesharks sang a beautiful version of "Somebody loved" by The Weepies, and if you have a heart, and it beats, and you breathe air, you should buy this song.
Brandon and I had a pretty great day today. Started with Ben and Stacey's wedding which was complete with an office theme song at the end, a haircut for Brandon at Toni and Guy, some new clothes and make-up for me from all over the spectrum, dinner at CPK and The Incredible Hulk at the movies.
All throughout the day, all I kept saying was, can we watch wedding crashers tonight?
Well, we got back to my apartment, and what would you guess was on TV.... WEDDING CRASHERS.
Not really, but these are some fun pictures from the refinery opening. Including Ryanne's impression of the water monkeys from planet earth, a modeling shoot in the new baptismal pool, and playing soccer with Leighton.
Picked up my boyfriend from the airport after not seeing him for a month Planned and executed an entire event for 126 freshman and 40 leaders Been to work every day between 7 and 9 am and worked until at least 10 pm, and loved every minute Cried tears of joy, anger, frustration, exhaustion, and heat Seen hundreds of people walk through our student building that I love, and watch them fall in love with it too Built a rock wall, and tilled an entire hill when it was 100 degrees outside Worn overalls to work( and the answer is yes, it was when I was tilling the aforementioned hill) Played Wii bowling Sweat, a lot. Played killball
I could go on and on.
It is now 12:44 am on Saturday. I am literally smiling because I am heading to bed.
So this last week of my life has been complete chaos, but in the midst of it all, I had such encouragement and love in my life.
My great friend/roommate/doctor Bethany surprised me with what I like to call the permanent starbucks cup. I literally screamed out loud in the office. You can read about the cup on Ryannes blog, she has one too.
Oh and, my friend Allison invited me to her house where she made me dinner, and just let me talk about my life to her.
Plus, Zack saw one day that I was feeling down and told me that Debbie Barker ( his mom) always made him Chai tea when he was sad, so he made me some. It was delish.
Then a couple of days ago Ryanne left a little note of encouragement on my desk along with a cupcake notebook, just because.
THEN I log onto the space aka myspace, and see a great an unexpected encouraging and loving comment from my main man, Bran. He posted it while in China! ( He's not a huge myspace guy, so this was extra special.)
I tell ya, I am lucky to be surrounded by such great people.
I am sitting in class right now, listening to my professor talk about something super interesting ( seriously, I am not being sarcastic...) but at the same time in the right hand corner of my computer screen I have live feed of the Laker game.
I am my fathers daughter, that is all I have to say.
