Happy Birthday Gracie Babie

My month/week/day is coming up. I know at least one of my readers really likes me a lot, a lot.
I have been oogling googling over...
Madewell = Madelovely
J. Crew is like Courtney: big sister, blonde, sophisticated, simple and beautiful.
Madewell is Emma: baby sister, boys can't help but love her, gets along with everybody, wears high heels with her plaid school uniform skirt.
I'm Gracie, I've bought 6 white wife beaters in the past month. Reeeeally glad to have this sassy sister sandwich.

Pretty much, those sandals have become my bread and butter. They're the bee's knees. I kept the window open to them on my phone so I could stroke their pretty strappies during Sunday School.
I hope they're tanning the hides of those Italian cows for me cause I'm comin' for you baby. I'mma comin'.

oh and...

this ring is pretty too.

Summer Goals

These seem to be popping up all over the blogosphere.
Be left out? P-shaw!
For my own personal reference...

Summ-Summ '11 ToDo's:

1. Go to Lagoon
2. Smell like campfire smoke more often than not (but not really) (but kinda)
3. Live (or die) in Yosemite
4. Bastille Day. AKA my birthday. AKA right in the middle of my birth-week. AKA right in the middle of July. July being my birth-month... It's kind of a big deal
5. No pants allowed
6. Get offered a multi-cultural student scholarship by August (this happened the summer before my senior year. The sun and I? Yeah, we're kind of a thing)
7. Read. Books.
8. Neglect my car, love my bike (actually, goal #1 is to replace my bike tires. they are lil baldies, poor fellas)
9. Pack a real, bona fide picnic and share it with a lover or two
10. 7-peaks, 7-11, 7-fourteen(see #4)
11. Befriend a boat owner. Marry a boat owner? Maybe next summer...
12. I seem to have forgotten my old popsicle friends. This summer will be one for rekindling.
13. Timp. Oh Timp. You sing to us in the mornings and watch over us at night. I'll see you soon you sweet, strong ol' girl.
14. Make a million sushi rolls and a million dollars.
15. Rent a room. Live in a tent.

I'm itchin'.
Boyohboy I've been waiting for June since... pretty much last June. Something about the new greenness of the grass and trees that makes June full of calm expectancy and Utah pretty much owns the month of June. Nestled between the wet, bi-polar spring and the dry, sucking heat of a desert summer, June makes the mountains seem soft and friendly while keeping their cold, snowy peaks to remind us their power.
June in Utah smells exciting and clean. Drive north on 900 East at sunset this month. Look at the vibrant green mountains with their icy hats and catch in your peripheral the millions of blossoms lining the street. Then try and complain about the liquor laws and 'lack of culture.'
This is the place. This place is magic.
