locked out

this story is about the two of us! finally! ha! it's not as exciting as i'm making it sound. 

yesterday after work, my friend elise was locked out of her car. we both tried to break into her car without any luck, but then ben drove up and he tried aaaaaannnnd he couldn't do anything. we then decided to break into elise's apartment to get her spare key. ben was able to get a window open and he climbed in to open the front door. it was fun to watch him break into someone else's apartment. she was stressing out that she would be late getting to las vegas. so jealous of her right now. it is pioneer day and both ben and i had to work, while the rest of utah gets to play. lame.

lauren conrad

i really like this picture of her. it is from the august issue of harper's bazaar. i've toyed with the idea of getting my hair cut this short, but i still haven't really decided on anything. aaanndd ben really doesn't want me to cut my hair short.

one day

i will have a dress like this one. picture from the sartorialist

Blueberry Coffee Cake

{blueberry coffee cake}

i wish i had this for breakfast instead of this:

anyway, our car is currently under the weather. our clutch is broken. we are crossing our fingers that it will get fixed tomorrow. if it isn't, it will suck but oh well. public transportation here we come!

so my birthday is not for a few months, but i am already giving ben ideas for my gift. i found the cutest necklaces from her southern charm. the following picture is an example of the stuff they have on the website. i also really want another animal. i want either a puppy or a kitten. ben doesn't want another animal. he is a party pooper.

{if you want to look at more necklaces go here}
