Couldn't have illustrated it any better.  I suppose this means there are others like me.  Its a sad, sad cycle.

Found this on Pinterest. 
It makes me laugh. This is also my life.

If you ever see me "successfully" bake or cook something, its all a lie.  If the end product looks better than the above picture, it means I probably had 2 or 3 goes at it, and it most likely took me 7-8 hours to get it right. Hence the quotation marks around the word "successfully."

I can mess up a "Just add water" soup, or minute rice.  Just ask my family or any roommates over the years.  There is no hiding it from people I share a living space with.

...aand yet another benefit of living alone.

#28. "Money"

I kept a few Euros from my Italy trip in 2008, and I keep it so that I can make sure I get back to Europe! There are SO many places all over the world that I want to travel, but I would still LOVE to go back to Italy!

(old Italy posts here, here and here. These were quick emails home, made into blog posts so I pretty much sound like a jet-lagged valley girl with grammar and run-on sentence issues.  Just FYI.)

#26. "Night"

'Nother boring picture. Sunday night watching TV, with just my cozy, poorly "strung" rope lights a'blazin. 

(Oh, and see my lovely newly hung curtains?! My mom and I "installed" them, drill and all, like pros last week. Thanks Mom!)

Photo Day #25

#25. "Green"

I spent a good part of my day at the Mesa Temple, and it was a GORGEOUS day today!  Over 80 degrees out, and the flowers at the temple smelled amazing.  

This kind of green is a rare site to see in Arizona.  Grass is a commodity here, so it was almost weird to see so much of it in one place!

I am grateful for green grass, temples and beautiful sunny days!

#24. "Bathroom Cabinet"

What's there to say about a bathroom cabinet?
