Bon Voyage!

Headed back down to SPU and higher education! 
Now that I have been down here for a few days already let me finally show you what's been going on! 
I'm really on top of things aren't i?
In my defense however I have been dealing with a cold. By now the sniffles are less but my voice has taken on a lovely squeak which my roomies find oh so funny. 
Well onto more fun topics shall we? 
Like my lovely apartment! 
I only have a small number of pictures {and not very good ones at that}
So I will take you on a short tour of our humble abode for the next few months! 

 First we have the living room. It's still not decorated but we are looking forward to making it warm and homey! 
This will be where we chill with friends and do all that super smart homework. 
Cuz that's all college students do right? 
Study study study study.
 Oh and where i'm hoping to do some 30 day shred starting soon! 
Gonna get ripped! 
Now we will move into the dining room that you can hardly see and the kitchen.
 Our dining room has a lovely sliding door to the itty bitty balcony and a fantastic view of the canal. And our kitchen. YUM :) Can't wait to cook all sorts of yummy meals and treats. 
Just to counteract the working out that I will be doing. Real smart I'm sure. 
And moving on.....

..... to see the super cute aprons that Grandma Dee helped me with {basically did all of} for the lovely girls of this apartment! 
Thanks to her for spending time to pick out each fabric specifically and put them together. 
They are *Stunning* 
at least they are to me :) 
And now into my half of the bedroom that I get to share with my Cali girl.
 It's a little messy here {or a lot...} but that would be my fault.
Oh and you see that wood box like structure just laying all over the floor. Yeah I was building a cabinet. No big.
Not like my dad builds houses for a living or anything.
 I learned from the best. {Except the part where I put the back on backwards. Yeah we won't tell anyone about that part} 

 **TAH DAH**
A clean room and a lovely finished bookcase :)
I even was able to tan two of my lovely friends! A big thanks to them for letting me tan them and helping me to jump this off the ground!
So that is my exciting first half week back in Seattle.
More groceries tomorrow and getting rid of this squeak.
Oh and homework.
Don't forget the important things.
*ta *ta *for *now!

If It Rolls Kick It (or bump it)......

.....if it doesn't kick it til it does.
This is just a quick update on the sporty kids of this family! 
And look actual pictures! 
Brother #1 and I are coaching Brother #2's LYS soccer team. It's been great to get to know these 12 boys and play soccer with them. Some....ok most... of the boys are defiantly better players than I am since I haven't actually played since I was the daisy picker in 3rd grade. There are such different personalities and attitudes on our team. It also helps me realize I won't be having kids for oh 60 years. Mom I salute you. And even though it was cold this game so you can't see them the coaches have some pretty rad t-shirts. 
What great coaches.
So concerned with the kickoff going on right behind them.....
No one told me my hood was flipped out so adorably. 
Super proud of our boys! (And my bro being a super duper coach for the boys) So far 2-1 record with another game this week! Hopefully I can sneak away from school to help with the second half of the season! 

And the only sibling not involved in the Blue team's adventures is Sister. She is busy working her butt off on varsity volleyball!
That would be her (#3). Stolen from the newspaper's pictures. 
It was fun to watch her play and she is an ace of a server! She's worked hard to get where she is and i dare say I taught her everything she knows :) Keep it up lil sis!

** PS ** Here are those SUPER cool shirts!

Sun's Still Shinin'

"It's a great day to be alive. 
I know the sun's still shinin when I close my eyes. 
There's some hard times in the neighborhood but why can't every day be just this good?"
~Travis Tritt
I'm sure my siblings are sick of hearing me sing this loudly and very off key whenever it comes on the radio. hehe. But it has some tidbits of wisdom in those singable words. Some days aren't so much fun and feel like a ton of bricks landing on you {insert explosion noise} 
but cheer up better days are coming! 
Right now I'm super excited to get back to school and move into my new *apartment* with my roomies :)
Count down: 10 sleeps! 
Getting back to school will also signal the start of classes which would usually be seen as a bad thing but in this case I am actually excited for the classes I am taking! Now that I've said I'm excited does that mean that I'm not allowed to complain about them later? 
I just won't tell you if I do ;) 

Can you believe the long lasting sunshine round these parts?? For those of you not able to soak up this late hot sun it has been wonderful. Summer must have been mixed up and showed up in September instead.

Oh exciting news to share! (at least for me its exciting)
Recently (and i mean really really recently) I decided to start spray-tanning!
After working with Aunt Mandy and seeing first hand how it all goes down it seemed like a fun idea to start on the SPU campus! Now I have bunches to learn & practice but i'm super excited! Im spending WAAAAY too much time pouring over cool business cards right now. :)
So if you are willing to have a novice tan you.... call me up.

Well I think that's all the updates for now. Hmmm not thinkin of anything else. Sorry for the lack of pictures! I just don't seem to pull out that camera and use it. So i'll leave you with this inspiring line. :)

enjoyed a fun night of bowling with the boy and two new friends. i am proud to say i won with a new personal record of *121* points! I've only ever gotten that high on the wii. Boom. Roasted.

Lil Update...

Well i realized today that if i'm going to have a decent blog (per one of my goals) that maybe i should actually write on it! So i may as well give you all {all being 3 of you} an update on the exciting adventures of my life.
These days i have been having a blast working at Jamaica Me Tan with my Aunt Mandy! Super fun hanging out with her and seeing what she does.

Beautifying the salon with Sydney!
Snuggie ~ my other working companion
This past weekend my girl Chandler came up for a visit and we toured the great nation of Canada! {psst she is part of the reason i started blogging so check her out!} It was so much fun to catch up and now i can *not* wait to get back to Seattle!! But alas I did not take a single picture when she was here! Starting a blog was supposed to motivate me to take more photos! Hmmm guess that one is going to need a little work.... 
A wonderful weekend with such a fantastic friend was followed by a fierce game of frolf with dad and the boy. I think it's safe to say we are Pro Frolfers now. Then the boy "let" me beat him in one of my favorite games.
Well there's what i've been up to during these crazy warm days.
Catch ya on the flip side homies {don't i sound G?} :)
