Hi, all.. I really should tune into blog-land more, but I seem to visit about as much as you'd want in-laws to visit when your house is dirty. 
I've been listening to some really amazing music lately - the stuff that changes your life, opens your soul, and makes you feel new perspective. I'm so into Lykke Li, Bon Iver, Robyn, Pixie Lott, and Rumer lately. I'm completely obsessed with 21 still; it's nearly on daily repeat. 
In weakest moments I weep
'Cause I like the way, tears fit my cheek
In darkest moments I cry
Oh how I love the way, a tear suits my face
Just wondering... Have you ever picked up a novel at the book store based on the cool design of the cover, or the well-planned-out marketing of the title, only to read the back of the book and think, "why the hell would I want to read this - it is way too close to home.." then put [it] back upside down (and backwards) on the self and walk away feeling disgusted? Pretty sure that happens to me. 
I don't really think barnes and noble likes me much anymore, anyway, but honestly who doesn't honor online pricing at the counter when they have a "pick it up at store" option? Bad marketing.. Sorry B&N all my business has now been wrapped up in a pretty package with a gold bow and given to Amazon from now on. I will, however, continue to go in to use your bathroom with no intention of buying anything, spending an hour reading trash magazines by the stack in the Starbucks section, and taking pictures of important pages in books I will be ordering from Amazon with my phone to tide me over.
Happy 24th of July, Utah friends. May the fire(works) in your heart feel joy. I have seen so many fireworks this season with friends and loved ones, and I really like the ones that are glitter-filled (conveyed by the photo below), and I have apparently gotten past my 6-year fear of sparklers. Oh the things you can do when someone believes in you.
People in Utah are pretty silly sometimes during the holidays, especially when fireworks are at the Bee's game and families can be seen sitting on blankets on top of their cars eating McDonald's at the upper garage of the Walmart parking lot across the street from the stadium. Every time I go to Walmart I am reminded why I don't shop there.. Especially the one downtown SL where I am a minority; I never can be there alone. Yikes. This girl is a Target girl.

And now it is time for me to fall into my weekly Sunday routine. Reality TV: Big Rich Texas & Keeping Up with sweet snacks. Gotta get me some Kim. <3
