Red Saltwater Sandals...

Well, world: I AM IN LOVE!
With my Saltwater Sandals!
Thank you, Naomi at Rockstar Diaries for inspiring me. 
Naomi is this lovely lovely woman who has impeccable taste and an adorable family. I am addicted to her blog. And you should all check it out! Anyway, I bought some Saltwater sandals for this summer and I am head over heels in LOVE with them. I wear them everywhere.
Here are some pictures of my lovely beauties:

Yes, I love these shoes so much that I had a photo shoot with them.
(My summer has been kinda slow thus far...don't judge.)

(enlarge this one! You can read the bottom of my shoe...that was the point....)

So, yeah my life eez GOOD.

I've been working my BUNS off lately. I have two jobs at the BYU Museum of Art.
1. Security guard
2. Student assistant in the Registration department.
Basically what that means is I get to touch all the art and do condition reports...and filing. Lots of filing.

I am a very lucky gal!

On Memorial Day, my lovely roommate Elise and I went to J-Dawgs (the most delicious hot dog joint in all the land) and Spoon-it-up (FRO-YO!) and then we came home and made melted crayon art and watched NEW YEARS EVE!! Which, I adore. I love that movie more than words can say.

Here are some pictoral representations of our fun:

 Here's what you need to make brilliant crayon art:
 a hot glue gun, crayons (crayola is always best), canvases or canvas board (I guess cardboard would work too), and a BLOWDRYER.

Step one: Unwrap your crayons! Unless of course, you like the look of the wrapper...then by all means, leave that wrapper on! Follow your ambition.

Step TWO: line up your crayons in whatever order you like! 
(we broke ours into smaller pieces and put them side-by-side to make thicker strips of color)
HOT GLUE those babies down!

Step the LAST: Blow dry the heck outta those crayons! Mess around with heat and power settings so you find one that you like and think works the best. 

Tilt that canvas all around to aim your melted-crayons wherever you want them! 

ET VOILA! :) Crayon art!

Aren't we just the cutest crayon-artists you ever did see??
(sorry some of those are blurry...I was just so excited!)

We made a giant bed nest to watch our movie in. IT WAS AWESOME. Very cozy :)

Also, I pretty much ate that whole box of grasshopper cookies by myself...oh well. It was so delicious, it was bound to happen.

So yeah, life is good! :)

This is my NEW FAVORITE SONG. It is on constant repeat. LISTEN TO IT.

I am in love with Carrie Underwood.
This is "Blown Away" by Carrie Underwood.
Enjoy :)

I hope everyone has been having a fun summer.

Also, just for your information, this blog has over 10,800 views!! Which is bizarre...and awesome. So keep up the good work, viewers!! :)
