Apologies, blogosphere.

I've been home all week and, surprisingly, hardly touched my computer.  Then we went to the farm, where there was no internet service.....

I'm actually not even sorry because if you were away from a family like mine for three months, all you would want to do is be around them!!  It was such a good week and it was hard to see it come to a close, but if there's one thing I like about living in Colorado, it's the fact that I appreciate my family's company a whole lot more.  

There were a whole lot of changes when I got of them is that my sister has lost a TON of weight and looks like a rock star:

The other one is two new gorgeous puppies that are so adorable.  


(She's guarding our steaks. Such a good puppy.)

So, lots of changes, but good changes!  My next trip back home is in three weeks, and I'll be driving 14 hours with a friend of'll be my first road trip without my family.  So strange, a little bit excited, please pray that nothing goes wrong (although it might be inevitable, haha)


I need creative stimuli.

I'm in one of those stages of my life where NOTHING that I create is good enough.  This week's collegian vlog is not my favorite.  When I finish an essay for a class, I'm not 100% positive that I killed it (and I can kill an essay).

(not exactly sure why it says 'loose' instead of 'lose' but you get the picture)

Something I am looking forward to, however, is seeing my family at the end of the week.  Actually, it's in two days!  And while, sadly, I won't be getting my green pants until after I get back (I'm crying inside), I'll be sure to put on my best skinny jeans for when I tumble off that plane and onto Texan soil.

I can't wait!

So I noticed I'm not doing too well at this whole blogging thing...

It's because I've been so busy, I promise.  In fact, I've been having quite a battle with a beautiful pair of green jeans:

Ordering these online has been a total bitch and, let me tell you something: I do not entirely enjoy being on hold by the Forever 21 representatives for more than 15 minutes.  15 fricking minutes!!! 

I just really want to wear these on the plane ride home, so I was a bit snippy to a customer service representative named Joseph (sorry again, Joseph), but they FINALLY shipped so hopefully the battle is over.  

In other news, the Collegian posted another one of my dorm life videos and so I thought I'd post it here for you guys to check out: 

Enjoy, and have a happy week!  I, for one, cannot wait for Thursday to come...that's when I leave for home and get to see my family for the first time in nearly three months.  YAY!

Yesterday, me and some friends went down to Horsetooth mountain to go hiking.  My car barely made it up the steep roads, but once we got up there it was so worth it- the weather was perfect and the views were absolutely breathtaking!! I think I have a new goal to climb a 'fourteener'- or a 14,000 foot high mountain.  It's intense and you have to wear helmets and go with a guide, but I think it would be so satisfying at the end of the day.  Here are some shots from our hike:

Getting worn out?

With all the grafitti, of course someone would paint marijuana.  OF COURSE.  Damn hippies.  

My favorite rock.

Teen angst. 

Titanic pose. 

LOVE these last two pictures.  Don't worry, the road was completely clear!

If you live in the Fort Collins area, you should definitely make a trip down to Horsetooth sometime.  It's worth it!  The only problem was that we went when all the snow was melting, and therefore my shoes are now caked in mud.  Great.  

Happy Sunday,

I got a grandpa sweater from Plato's Closet the other day and it is quite magnificent...

Sweater: Old Navy (Plato's Closet) Shirt: Wal-mart  Jeans: Target  Shoes: Forever 21

Sorry for the tiny size and the fact that I took one of those terrible mirror pics, but just admire the outfit, okay? I was quite proud of it.  And I loved breaking out my oxfords after they spend weeks in my closet.  They even make that fun little tapping noise when I walk.  LOVE.  

Hope everyone's Thursday is going splendidly.  I have to go study for a test now (blergh)

Until later (because my posts have been really sporadic lately),
