Ranch via the big camera.

So, I already mentioned what we got up to at the ranch last weekend here. My friend, Cassie, mentioned to me a couple of weeks ago that it would be fun to do a paint photoshoot with all our friends. I told her that sounded fun, and then more recently she thought up the idea that colored powder (known most famously for being used for Holi) would be a better idea & way more exciting. So, we all wore white shirts and ventured into a field where Cassie had already set up cups full of powder. And then... we got up to no good.

I've said it before and I'll say it again- I love these people & I love that weekend. I think we've set the bar for a fun weekend, and it will be interesting to try and up ourselves next time!


Spring Haul!

So, two weeks ago I did a little shopping venture with two of my besties. I needed shoes. AND I GOT SOME. When does THAT happen? First place I walked into & first pair I tried on. #win.

I made a little video on that shopping day, if you'd like to see what else I picked up!

Gone to the ranch via my iphone.

You know those perfect weekends you dream about, but in reality something comes up and you can't make it happen, or you aren't in the right mindset, or whatever. Well. We had pretty close to a perfect weekend.

It looked like this:

 -Lots of Lisa hugs. I miss her.
-Beautiful skies
-One rogue skinny dipper
-Holi Powder
-Blue snot
-Yoga in the field with the cows
-Sore legs from cartwheels in aforementioned fields
-Strange rustling noises from a bush (i know it was a hog. i just can't)
-the boyfriend's beard
-foam swords
-card games
-walks in the dark
-yellow cake with chocolate frosting mmm
-lots of lovely friends who i will miss for 4 1/2 months (i'm a baby)
-cross-eyed stares
-having those moments. but first, let me take a selfie. (that 2nd photo)
-worms are for fish, not people. just fyi.
-wobbly pink cups late at night
-five hours of sleep
-music 24/7
-lisa, wash my face for me.
-playing catch with the football in perfect weather

Good lord, there were many more things I wish to remember from the past couple of days, but I can't remember them all now. The gist was that I can't wait for another powwow with my favorites in 5 months! OCTOBER, you guys! Its on!

More photos coming soon... :)

April Catch-Up

I told myself I was going to document more of March & April and so far I haven't kept my promise to myself. One day. One day.

A week or two ago, I was driving home from work and I saw a big smoke cloud. I thought wow. pollution. hello, houston. Until I realized it was a reeeeeaaalllyyy big cloud of smoke. Like a fire cloud. So as I'm driving I'm like oh god, that's by University of Houston and started to frantically call John who was in the library studying. He was clueless, and I realized it was past the university. So as I get home, I find out it's the building right across the street from my old apartment complex (aka where i was living four months ago). A FIVE ALARM FIRE. It still stresses me out to think about it. Thank God, no one was hurt. Life is scary.

Our last flag football game was this past thursday. I only played in the first game because a) i got hit in the tooth and b) my legs were injured anyways. BUT i did attend most of the games to root for our team. AND I caught the ball in the first game, so that counts for something.
My friend Alex & I met up at Jus Mac and had a delicious lunch of macaroni. What else? It is glorious.

Also, I have been really into face masks. I make my friends and parents do them with me because why not? This is life. It's time to have nice skin!

So that's a little bit of what I've been up to.
