Do you have any idea how IN LOVE with the weather I am today!!! I am sitting with the door open gazing out at one of my favorite views in the whole world, my backyard :) So instead of updating you on the monotony of my life... which believe me, is MONOTONOUS, I am going to take a cue from Elsie and share some things that have made me happy or inspired me lately:

1. Spring dresses with cardigans

2. a dock by a lake

3. Jane Austen (of course)

4. wedding dresses with pockets

5. Book of Romans

6. the color grey (I actually spent most of the morning trying to find an affordable duvet cover in grey - so if you know where I can find one for cheap, please let me know!)

7. Weekend bags (I'm in search of the perfect one for under $30)

8. bike riding across ASU in the evenings

9. cucumbers (they're yummy)

10. Forever21 (got a gift card for christmas from my bro Tyler and I can't wait to go on a little shopping spree with it!)

Okay, I know that was a random list of stuff... some of it you probably wonder why it makes me happy... but as I said in the beginning, my life has been monotonous at best... so I am easily pleased right now :)

What makes you happy?

So I have toyed with the idea of a tatoo for many many years now. I kind of have an idea of what I want, but I don't have enough motivation to actually get one... BUT I found this tattoo artist through Elsie's blog and I am totally in love with her work!!!! Check some out here!

I especially love her abstract stuff!!! I want one of her tattoos SO bad.

So 5 different people on 5 different occasions over the last 3 weeks have told me I look like Zooey Deschanel. I think it is the new dark hair! Either way, it is a TOTAL compliment and I feel so flattered because I think she is legitimately gorgeous! I also would love to mimic her style!

In other news, I have started the semester. I had one class this evening that ended up ending early because my professor wasn't prepared with a VHS player to show our first film of the semester. So she gave us the assignment to watch the film by class next week, so luckily I was able to find the film at the Tempe Public LIbrary :) I also read the first few sections of my online class "Shakespeare on Stage and Film" and I'll need to pick up a copy of Romeo and Juliet script in the next couple of days. Tomorrow I have my "Stuart England" class and my "Literature of Adolescence".

I am hoping this semester will be filled with excitement and that I'll like my classes :)
