Today I went to the dry cleaners to pick up some clothes and I forgot to pick up the clothes.
That's what happens when you wake up at 5:30 every morning.
I felt like such an idiot walking back into that place after having driven all the way home empty handed without a clue.
In other news...
Have you seen Lauren Conrad's line of clothing for Kohl's?
Kind of embarrassing but there's actually some cute stuff!
I think she has great style and it actually looks like stuff she wears.
Here ya go.

Fall Favs

These are a few of my favorite things (right now) no particular order...

#1- NARS blush in 'Orgasm'. Fall is here, I'm getting more and more pasty by the minute. Out with the bronzer and in with the blush!
#2- Snuggie. This is no joke. I'm thinking this is one of the best inventions of all time besides electricity and stuff. Just look at how happy this woman is:

#3- PB Crunch. Yesterday I had 6 bowls.

#4- The Apprentice. This show is the best. Ty and I have been struggling to find a show we both enjoy. I kept falling asleep during '24' and he feels weird about watching 'Glee'. Thus the sexually neutral....The Apprentice.

#5- Lululemon yoga pants in 'Astro'. Probably one of the best purchases I have ever made. LOVE LOVE THEM! Comfy but not frumpy...what could be better???

That's all for now.

When you were little did you ever play the joke on your friends where you make them say 'I' and then spell the word 'CUP'?
Such a funny one.
Because when they say it out loud and all together it sounds like "I see you pee."
Well this funny little trick has taken on new meaning to me since I started my NCAA swimming career.
We sit through countless meetings at the beginning of every year about drugs.
What not to take.
What is considered 'performance enhancing.'
What will happen if you use.
I have never had a problem with this.
Fortunately I do not struggle with the temptation to use drugs.
But for some reason unbeknownst to me, I have been "randomly selected" all four years here at BYU to participate in "NCAA Random Drug Testing."
Let me walk you through this process....I am an expert at this point.
First you walk into a room and fill out paper work including social security info, birth date, prescription and over the counter drugs you take, etc.
You think that's personal....just you wait.
Then you get this plastic cup and an NCAA representative follows you into the restroom.
Here comes the best part....
You go into the stall to do your business and the rep comes with you.
Just you two.
In a bathroom stall together.
They have to watch you pee so you don't pull any kind of switcharoo.
After filling your cup to a certain black line, you take your "specimen" (specimen=pee, urine, #1, wiz, etc.) and carry it back to the paperwork room and set it on a table.
All of the other "randomly selected" athletes look at the color of your specimen and make awkward comments about your hydration.
Once you get there you have to carefully pour your "specimen" into a small tube.
Careful...don't spill.
Then your little warm tube is sent off to be thoroughly tested.
Today I had to do this for the fourth time.
Let us all hope and pray that this is the last time someone will have to watch me create a specimen.

When it comes to technology, I have the worst luck.
More specifically Apple technology.
I have never met anyone who has had as many problems with this as I have.
My Mac laptop has completely crashed not once, but twice.
And now my iphone is frozen.
I'm starting to see a pattern.
Maybe I should listen to Ty and switch to a PC and wannabe iphone.

I called Apple Tech Support to get help with my iphone probs but they told me that they can't help me until I buy some bajillion dollar tech support plan.
Um does this seem odd to anyone else?
YOUR product was a dud.
Now you wont even tell me what's wrong with it until I pay you???
Of course.
Now I am on hold with some guy at the Apple's been 57 minutes.
I'm 99% sure he forgot about me.
Tell me, what other options do I have?
What am I supposed to do without my cell phone?!
(Not that anyone will call/text me besides my mom)
So yes, Apple Store, I will patiently sit here on hold for the next three hours until you either a) fix my phone or b) give me a new one.
Preferably the new and improved iPhone 4.
I get secretly happy when my stuff breaks because that means I get new ones.

R.I.P iphone.
May you forever waste hours of my time.

camping sorta

Last night the swim team went on our annual camping trip.
(Except for we slept in a cabin because it was cold outside.)
Now I'm not one who tends to love camping, by any means.
But anything I do with this group of girls is FUN.

Despite the fact that I only got 3 hours of sleep last night and wanted to kill myself waking up at was a blast.
I don't know what I'm gonna do without these three next year...

Freshman year we were dubbed "The Fab Four"

loves ♥

Guys...I'm ill.
Can't breath.
Runny nose.
Sore throat.
You name it.
Who gets a cold when it's 80 degrees outside?
If you see me, run the other direction because I will probably cough on you.
Ty has assumed all household duties including laundry, dishes, running errands,
and getting me lotsa this:

It just makes me feel better.
I promised him I'll return the favor when he's sick next week ; )

Unless you want to sit in boredom and confusion for 2 hours and 13 minutes.
I'm pretty easy to entertain...feed me and give me something to look at and I'm a happy camper.
But I seriously almost walked out of this movie because of sheer boredom.
I even TRIED to fall asleep at one point.
Maybe I have ADHD.
No that's not it.
The movie is about a 40 something year old woman who divorces her husband because she "doesn't want to be married anymore" and wants to "find herself" by traveling.
She meets some peeps, sleeps around a bit, and eats food.
That's it.
That's all that happened.
Sorry if I ruined the ending.
And sorry for being such a negative nancy....I'm just still slightly bitter about wasting over 2 hours of my life.
On a more positive note....the first BYU football game is today!
Let's go Cougs!!!

So the first week of school has been great and whatever but I am freaking out about something...
Labor Day is fast approaching.
Do you understand what this means?
I have always been a firm believer in this rule, but then I read this and now I feel like maybe it's an outdated idea.
I have fully been planning on putting my white pants away come Monday, but now I'm like...Maybe I'll be a rebel and keep wearing them.
But then I'm like...What if people don't understand I'm trying to be a rebel and just think I didn't know about the rule in he first place?
I have worn different variations of white pants every day so far so I could squeeze all of my best white-pant-outfits into my first week of school.
I just love how they give any outfit a clean, preppy look.
They are one of my favorite things.
Besides this, I am excited for the Fall wardrobe changes because I just ordered these boots.
Obv I wouldn't wear them with white pants.
