stranger danger.

I know what you're thinking. i'm a stranger. i feel like i haven't blogged in ages. i blame my absence partly on the new love of my life....instagram.
it's easy. it's fast. and i only have to think of one little witty sentance instead of a whole blog post, so basically it's won me over.
so...if you really want to see pics, i suggest you start following me on instagram. it might just change your life.

let me give you a little updating. mothers day was great. we did the usual homemade ice cream at gmas and i got to spend the evening with family. i love grandmas yard in the summer. it brings back such fun memories of summer sleepovers on the tramp, playing in the sprinklers, slip n' slides and cousin parties.

these cats and i headed down to provo for an outdoor concert. good tunes and good company....and got me in the mode for summer. i feel like every april/may i come out of my winter funk and am reminded that i have friends and that i am actually a pretty fun person. winter i think i allow myself to sit inside and try to stay warm...which makes me feel like i have no friends and am no fun at all. see how that works?
the concert was a blast. met some fun people. ran into old friends. even got a date out of it.
miracles happen (when you invite friends that have magic hair)

another memorial day weekend has come and gone, which means another davis family campout has come and gone. guess rained again. it doens't make it any easier (or warmer) when you are expecting rain as opposed to it just showing up. i was prepared with plenty of layers and plenty of blankets. i still managed to wear my toms (which got wet, of course) and eat ice on a regular basis which didn't help with my core temperature. lessons learned....

if you read this blog, you should know these people. i like these people. this pic was taken at the family dance. yes. family dance. and yes, i was the dj...kind of until they took over and started playing
techno/top 40 and then i gave up and me and the chicken dance headed back to camp.

i've been working with my cousin and his fiance to plan their wedding....which happens to be this FRIDAY.
i've learned alot about the planning process and it's been alot of fun, but it will be really great to have it done. i'm hoping everything comes together and looks beautiful and the food tastes good and the flowers turn out and the invitations were all delivered and the cake shows up and the pictures turn out and the dress still fits and we stay on time and the weather is good......
ok, so i've got alot of wedding details on my mind.
so sue me.

i'll post pictures of wedding when i have them....but most likely i'll be doing it on instagram.
so follow me.
so i can follow you.

i'm only 5% depressed

funny how life changes.

my brother and his family are moving in less than a month. i think it's a big deal because i will have to catch a flight to see them. i've never had a family member live that far away...unless they were on a mission, and even then i knew they'd be back in 2 years.
it makes me wonder if i've taken my family all living so close for so long for granted. even when i "moved away from home" i was only a 5 hours car ride away from my parents and a home cooked meal. it's weird to think that this could really be the beginning of my family spreading out. taking jobs when and where they come. raising their family somewhere else and seeing them at family reunions.

i'm not completely depressed about it. 95% of me is so excited for my family to be growing up. moving on. getting great jobs. starting families. excelling in school. but i think 5% of me just still wants to be 12 and babysitting at home on a friday night while my older sister is out with her high school friends and my parents are out to dinner. (when i was 12 that was probably the last thing i wanted to do with my time...)

i guess that means i like my family, right? i really am very lucky to have siblings that are my friends. i guess we'll have to live it up at the DFC this year. :)

Questions I had run through my head today...

Why does work start so early?
Why is visiting teaching so hard sometimes?
Why cant that just be good enough?
Why does Christina aguilara bug me so much?
Why is there so much grey area?
Why didn't I think of FaceTime. Or redbox? Or the bumbo?
Where in the world am I going to find room for that?
Is sleeping on a mattress without sheets really that bad?
How much longer till campout?
Is it illegal to do buckets of gas in the gutter?
How many days till Hawaii?
Is it 5 o'clock yet?
Are you serious?

summah summah summah time

i feel like there has been so much going on lately, but when i try to think of things to write about, i get stumped. can you be really busy with a whole lot of nothing??

i've kind of been planning a wedding lately. kind of meaning it's not my wedding. it's been fun to help with my cousin's wedding prep. pictures. announcements. flowers. dress. hair. showers. cake. registry. food. there is alot to do for a wedding, and somehow its taken over my brain. can't wait for june first to see how it all pans out. it will be beautiful.

i bought a plane ticket. my friend katie had been asking me if i wanted to join her on a trip to....anywhere but here. when they chose hawaii i thought for sure it wouldn't work for me to go. and then i got work off. and then i bought a plane ticket. turns out the flight leaves 2 days after my 30th birthday....perfect time to splurge, right? i think it will be the perfect end to a perfect summer. i can't wait.

speaking of's almost summer. ahhhhhhh. summer just puts me in a good mood. sunshiney weather. camping. night time strolls. daylight till 9. bbq's. campfires and roasting marshmallows. baseball games. and outdoor concerts. how can you not be happy during summer???
