Obviously, we had to.

I find myself not paying attention while driving, I am in a different world.
You take really great pictures.
You are always there for me.
You show me the way when I am lost.
I can't concentrate on working, I just want to hangout with you.
I want to text message with you all the time.
I want to listen to Pandora with you.
You have shown me so much...

Tricked you! You thought this was about someone i'm sure, but nope we are's about a phone. Who knew.
thank you IPhone..Merry Christmas to us!!

Me and Stef decided our phones weren't good enough so we bought new ones..
Great decision. So great.

Listening should you.

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros.
"Up From Below"


This song has been on repeat in the cave and in our cars for 2 days.. hippies gotta love them.

Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma & Pa
Not the way that I do love you

Holy roly, me, oh my, you’re the apple of my eye
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you

Man, oh man, you’re my best friend, I scream it to the nothingness
There ain’t nothin’ that I need

Well, hot & heavy, pumpkin pie, chocolate candy, Jesus Christ
There ain’t nothin’ please me more than you

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you
La la la la, take me Home
Baby, I’m coming Home

I’ll follow you into the park, through the jungle, through the dark
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you

Moats & boats & waterfalls, alley ways & pay phone calls
I’ve been everywhere with you

That’s true

We laugh until we think we’ll die, barefoot on a summer night
Nothin’ new is sweeter than with you

And in the sticks we’re running free like it’s only you and me
Geez, you’re something to see.


“Do you remember that day you fell out of my window?”
“I sure do, you came jumping out after me.”
“Well, you fell on the concrete and nearly broke your ass and you were bleeding all over the place and I rushed you off to the hospital. Do you remember that?”
“Yes, I do.”
“Well, there’s something I never told you about that night.”
“What didn’t you tell me?”
“While you were sitting in the backseat smoking a cigarette you thought was going to be your last, I was falling deep, deeply in love with you and I never told you ‘til just now.”
“Now I know.”

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is whenever I’m with you
Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is when I’m alone with you

Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you

Ahh, Home
Yes, I am Home
Home is when I’m alone with you.

Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma & Pa
Moats & boats & waterfalls & pay phone calls

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you
Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is when I’m alone with you

Polka Dot Trot

marcbymarc jacobs Spring 2010

When I was 7 years old my favorite outfit was a purple leotard with black polka dots...who knew that so many years later my love for polka dots would come right back...
A few days ago, I was given a pair of black tights with brown polka dots on them..I am in LOVE, and it seems that everywhere I look they are showing up. For a while, when I would see them on anyone they were worn all wrong, almost ruined it. Just simplify it, don't over do it and you are bound to look cute. Here are some looks by 2 of my favs... Marc Jacobs & Rebecca Taylor.
Get your polka dot on...

You rock my world and my Ipod

If you don't have Metric's newest tunes you need them, you won't regret it.


Oh Christmas Tree

It snowed all night Saturday and all day Sunday, so of course we chose the best day to go to the Christmas tree lot... We pulled up and walked in the gates of Christmas, we stared and stared..all the trees began to look the same. Finally we spotted "the one"! The worker man, a.k.a hot Christmas tree salesman... came out of his wooden shack to give a price quote. We asked him if he could tie it to the top of my Jetta, we were shocked when he said he would just drive it to our house for us. No charge and he took 10 dollars off our, hello yes you can do all those things for us thank you very much. We pulled out of the parking lot and all I could think was, "this was either a really lucky day or we're about to end up like the girls in the movie TAKEN" Oh well, we took the chance. I forgot to mention, Stefanie spent 2 hours downloading Christmas music for our decoration time & I filled our bathroom with cinnamon scented pine cones.
Now our tree was a little tall when we got it home, so I just cut off the top with the sharp side of a hammer...I am very handy sometimes. Even though it looked a little messy, you can't even see it.
We threaded those sparkly white Christmas lights all around, found a skirt for the bottom & plugged it in... Our house smells and looks like Christmas and I couldn't be any happier.

1, 2, 3, 4 get your woman on the floor

Ladies & Gentlemen, Jordan Goodrich
Jordan is our roommate while he is in Provo F.Y.I., his room is the loft
I invited him to come with us to the W, best decision i've ever made. Not only is he good to be seen with, he is by far the best ipod D.J. ever to sit in my backseat.
First song, these boots are made for walking, Shania Twain..then to Taking Back Sunday, Spice Girls, Mariah Carey Heartbreaker....I don't think I need to name any of the other songs, he brought back the old times.... and you should know, they were all great.
We pull up and we're almost sad to leave the car. To the dance floor we go... Jordan moves like we've never seen.
The night was filled with dancing, great music and Jordan making us laugh all night.. we love when you come here.
Love you J.G.
We miss you and T.R.L. already

p.s. I stole this picture from your facebook.

Why me?

Okay, so I have a serious love hate relationship with my Audi. I love love love it when its working and hate it more then anything when its not. I swear this one is cursed. From Window regulators, to hit and runs, to chipped paint, to shattered glass, and all other sorts stuff happening underneath the hood. All very funny stories but this on seems to be the topper of the moment.
So once upon a time the clock struck 6:00 and I was finally off work. I just needed some Inn N' out in my body, I got there waited patiently for them to take my order. After that was done and said Mr. Inn n out was like "oh you have a flat tire" and this is where the fun begins. So I get out to see that my tire is seriously flat... Like the tire falling off the rim flat. So I called Joben but she was busy with work. Who was I going to call to fix this tire? Seriously racked my brain for a bit and called Dave Challis. He was so sweet and said he would be right over. As I was waiting for Dave Mr Inn N out came over to ask me if I wanted him to bring over my food. I almost laughed, I was thinking NO I dont want you to bring my food over here, I want you to fix this damn tire! I kindly said no thanks and he was on his way. Dave got there and well it turns out that those lug nuts were NOT moving. Nope. Not happening. So Dave took me home. On to the next set of boys that were ready to give it a try. Alec and Taylor take my keys and go to get the deed done. Nope. Not happening. The lug nuts were there to stay. So, I wake up the next morning and decided I would call Mike Affleck. Ha ha for those of you who don't know him, he is a big guy. Not only is he big he works out pretty much every second for football. The only problem with Mike is he doesn't know ONE thing about changing tires, but I'm thinking we need the muscles and me and J and figure out the brains. So we get out the owners manual and start reading. Nothings working, not even Mikes big muscles. Mike looks at me and says "Man, I cant believe that no one has pulled over to help us!" haha So I respond "Mike, no one going to stop when they see you here with us.. I'm pretty sure they are thinking you have it under control." J looks at both of us and decides that we need to get Fix a flat in a can, so we do. Hahaha we start putting that shit in and it just comes seeping out of the tire. Guess that's not going to work. Finally we decide that we need to move on to our last resort. Discount tire is across the street. So me and J thank Mike and head over to see which hottie mechanic is going to help us. We get the old grumpy guy who is in charge, he proceeds to tell me he is under staffed and i'll have to wait until his guy gets back from lunch. Then a younger guy interrupts and says "I'll do it. I'll do it." So old man grupers decides that's okay and barks at him to bring some tools and such. As we're walking out he says "Uh well, I got my truck over here... It's a little messy cause I uh just got done a hiking timp." Me and J tried to keep straight faces as we told him that we could drive our car and he could follow us. Once we got there he had to run back for different tools when he realized it was an Audi. As he was leaving me and J spotted his license plate which read Prtywmn! Oh we got us a keeper. Pretty Women on his truck. So he came back pretty quick and decided to make small talk, asking us if we go to school. We said no, and he said he was in the same boat? He asked me to get in the car and step on the breaks. Getting his hammer and tools all together he starts going to town on my tire. While he is down there Jess was standing behind him pretending to spank his butt and air hump him while he talked to me. I was laughing my ass off while I asked him what would I do if I was on the side of the highway. He gave me a simple answer.... Just carry a hammer around. NBD. He got three off before breaking his tool. He had to go back AGAIN to get this damn tire off my car. He comes and gets my tire off with great effort. Then starts talking about tork blah blah blah air blah blah blah come over to the shop and I'll finish you up. So I say good bye to J and follow Mr. discount tire. He was quick and finished my car, then winked at me and sent me on my way. In the end he refused my money. Thank you Mr. Discount Tire Guy.

  1. No one gives as good of nicknames. period.
  2. Everyone else sucks at dancing & scandal in comparison
  3. Who else do you know that can get away with literally anything?
  4. Between the two of them they have more shoes than the country Etheopia and probably Honduras
  5. Jess's mixtapes rock my world
  6. J Crew reenactment was spot on
  7. Our rockband can kick your rockband's ass
  8. Their blog is AMAZING!
  9. They can successfully convince you to do whatever they want and somehow make it look like it was your idea
  10. They appreciate real top notch things in music & fashion and I don't know two best friends better suited for each other. Suck on that.
