You are my sweetest downfall...

I loved you first...

I have been mildly obsessed with Regina Spektor lately. Well, I can't lie... I've been pretty much listening to her non stop.  I think it's safe to say that "Samson" is one of the best songs I've ever heard in my life.  And I've been quite under the weather this week, so she has been making me feel better!
I was supposed to go to a bachelorette party in Kansas City yesterday, but as I said I haven't been feeling so wonderful.  So I spent my Saturday sitting on the patio of a coffee shop reading a book...which was very low key, and quite nice really. I also taught myself how to fishtail (herringbone) braid, as you can see.  My boyfriend is leaving town soon, so he came back and I watched him grill out and drink it turned out to be a better Saturday than I expected.  Still sad to have missed all the fun in KC with my girlfriends though :(
Luckily we have been blessed with blue skies, sunny, and hot summer days the past couple of days.  Can't wait for more to come...

Yeah, we just fell through the clouds

rockin' out in the car...gearing up to jump out of a plane!
we're all signed up!
"I just jumped out of an airplane!"

Sunday a group of friends and I drove an hour to Vinton, Iowa to Paradise Skydiving...well, you SKYDIVE!
Let me be frank, I am not a person who would say..."I want to go skydiving..." My mom even went as far as saying of her five children, I was the one she would have least expected to jump out of a plane.  
And really, I didn't even think about it. I said okay...and then I couldn't think about it, because if I thought it over I wouldn't have done it.
It was the best day of my life, no joke.  I have never felt more free, happy, excited and ALIVE. I want to go every weekend....please someone fund my new adrenaline rush addiction.  Thanks.
I have been a little under the weather today, so I'm not feeling that I can express how amazing this experience was adequately.  Moral of the story: GO SKYDIVING! It will change your life and give you a whole new outlook. Seriously, go skydiving.
Love you all.

Austin, Texas

I've been MIA, but that's because lots of exciting things have been happening!  I spent a week in Austin, Texas with my wonderful mother and her fiance and we had so much fun.  I loved it so much, I want to move there soon!  So I've been interviewing for new jobs so I can make enough money to move in the near future.  I've also been painting again, which is wonderful!  I'm just a little happy girl living in this little city with happy little people.
