it's been a minute. I have been such a slacker since I got home. But here I am finally blogging!
Well, where to start.
I had such a fun time with Paige driving from San Diego home. First, I drove up to long beach to pick her up from the airport.. and then we met Bailey for a nice lunch on the pier. It was so lovely, we were sad to only be there for a few hours.

Paige and I drove straight from Long Beach to Las Vegas and had a suuuuuper fun night in Vegas. We danced all night and met a lot of cool people, I can't wait to go back for birthdays! yay!

I can't even explain how nice it has been to be home. I have been catching up on a lot of lost friend time. I never thought I'd be so happy to be in this dumb state. :-P
Honestly there's not much to update you on... just the fact that I've been home hanging out with friends, going to barbecues, and playing a lot of Mario Kart with Thomas. I have worked a little at my mom's work but that's it. 

As happy as I am to be home, I'm still missing my girl Stef. Pathetic, I know. I miss her so much. I'm proud of her for going away and trying something new though. 

here are some random peeeeectures




What I came home to, presh.

also what I came home to......


happy girl.

ode to the fam.

After six of the most interesting, self-searching months of my life.. the time has now come for me to go home. I cannot believe how fast it went and how much I learned about myself. It definitely was... well, an experience.
I have to take a moment to thank "The Fam" for everything. They are truly some of the most amazing people I have ever met. They showed me nothing but kindness and love my entire stay. My love for them has grown so much and has made it hard to want to leave, but I know it's something I need to do.
A- has been hilarious. That's pretty much how I describe him. Super funny and caring. He is such a great father and husband to his family, at least from my perspective. If my husband is half as loving as him, I'll be just fine. 
S- has been my best friend these last six months. Also, my sisterwife. haha. We spent a lot of time together and I never once got sick of her. (The opposite might not be true, ha) It never felt like she was a "boss" or someone I had to feel weird around. I told her things that a lot of you don't know about me. We had some great times together.
I love you, S. I really do. You have taught me so much and I'll never forget you.
T- my girl. The little person that I spent the majority of the past 6 months of my life with. Extremely smart and such a joy to be around. I love you little girl, even though you'll never remember me. I'll always remember you.
H- you're juuuuuust a baby. And I love ya.

Of course I will miss the doggies, too.

Thank you to everyone here who was so great to me. I love you all!

The Bachelorette.

Yes, okay? I'm going to be one of those people who blogs about another trashy TV show with no real worth. I'm sorry but I love it. I don't plan to watch it when I get back into school mode, it's just fun for a little while.

So if any of you are watching this season of The Bachelorette.. which is, by the way, the lowest rated Bachelor/Bachelorette in history... you will know what I am talking about. Feel free to leave comments about your thoughts on Ashley or any of the guys.

First off:

I think a lot of people will disagree, but I love her. When she was on Brad's season of the bachelor I didn't really think much of her until it got down to her and two others. She was the only real one. She still is real. She understands that just because she is the bachelorette, not all of the guys are automatically going to love her. She is really humble and honest with everyone. 


Ahh Ames... even though he is really goofy looking, he is the most precious person I have ever seen. He is just so tender I want to give him a hug. Honestly, I'm surprised he's still around at this point.. but he is too nice not to like. I think he will be the next to go. 


I like him.. I think him and Ashley fit well together. They seem like they have a lot of fun together, I think he will be one of the final 2 for sure.


To me, he's just... meh. Him and Ben seem like the same person. Except Constantine seems to get less camera time. Ashley and him don't really seem to have anything going on and I'm kind of surprised he has made it this far as well. 


hands down my favorite. I hope he wins. Him and Ashley are so great together and every time they are together I just get so happy and want to be in love. 

Maybe I should stop watching this show. hahah

look at the things i do.

I hope everyone had a lovely 4th weekend.. 
I had a fun girl's weekend that was much needed. 
Went to the zoo, finally! Did a lot of shopping, and talking. It was so nice to have quality girl time.. it sounds weird but it's something I haven't had for a while. 

Sadly, this is the only picture we took all weekend together. 

she looks exactly like Leann Rimes.

Last night I went running on the beach. What's weird is that it's only about the third time I've done it since I've been here. It's kind of a production though... driving down there, finding parking, etc.
But I was glad I went. It was so summery. There were tons of people having beach bon fires and even more couples watching the sunset. I couldn't decide if I was jealous of them or wanted to gag. (probably jealous.) haha
I got really sad about leaving because I thought to myself... Why am I leaving the greatest place ever?
I'll be back though. I just need to finish school or I'll never go anywhere in life.

8 days until my Paigey comes to get me!
