it's a small small world

I got so excited when Jesslyn won my giveaway. I had no clue who she was but knew we were kindred sisters cause in her comment she said "school supplies may be the only reason I'm becoming a teacher" amen!! I've had that thought come to mind sooo many times! how wonderful would it be to have a classroom all to yourself to decorate and organize and to write "Mrs. White" on the chalkboard!?! I lovely thought me thinks. Well she e-mailed me her address and low and behold we live in the same town! a mere mile or so apart at that! I told her to forget snail mail I'd so much rather drop her trophies by personally.

The next day was monday. the first day of school. I have drawing. 8:00 am. bleh. But I got all excited when I heard my teacher call "Jesslyn" on the role! What are the chances we'd be in the same drawing class at 8 am?! coin-ka-dink? fate!! Well now we are totally friends (which feels so good to have especially during the first week of school).

And I couldn't be more thrilled :)

any other blogging buddies in the provo area?! let me know! we should be friends right?!

also, on a completely different note:

The brandon and I are particularly tired today. I fell asleep in 2 out of 4 classes today. reason being: late night Walmart excursions at 2 am to find Brandon's new indulgence: Almond Milk. and sneaking into my parents house to steal the newest LOST season on DVD.

worth it?



happy wednesday everyone!

hope you were bright-eyed and bushy-tailed during class
unlike me...

P.S. anyone else ready for a blog-make over?! (I tried to spice things up with the blue). I'm so not tech savvy. Any tips?! especially on "widening" blogs?!

(just kisses today folks)


  1. AAH I'm so glad you guys watch LOST! David and I are big huge LOST fans.
    And secondly, I can help you with your blog layout. :)
    Though I do require for you to come over for tea... Is that going to be a problem?

  2. oh gosh my cousin marilla is in that class too. i should tell her about the adorable claire. yes. oh and it was fun seeing you on campus. always good to see a familiar face the first day--even in college!

  3. YOU BRING BACK THAT DVD RIGHT THIS MINUTE MISSY!! BAD COUPLE. BAD COUPLE!! I think I saw almond milk at Sam's or Costco. Give them a call. mummy

  4. You'll have to let me know when you figure out how to widen your blog! I've been wanting to do the same thing for ages, but I end up just messing it up and making it look really bad...
    And late night Walmart excursions are always the best, though something about it being so late makes my "frugal" button turn off and I end up buying something silly. And probably sugar filled.

  5. Yes! I am so glad we are friends now. That was seriously crazy. I'll see you tomorrow, blogging buddy.

    I use the blog template they have on this blog for my photography blog and it makes it waaaaay wider! Awesome if you want to post big pictures or ya, just make your blog wider, haha!
