The 90's.  It's when I was born.  It's when I grew up.  The time of "Friends", Hanson, the macarena, N'Sync, The Backstreet Boys, "Boy Meets World", all the goodies.

When I heard there was a 90's party last night, I got so excited.  People always have 80's parties, and even though they're fun, it's not like I lived through them.  Plus, I didn't even have to go to Goodwill to put my outfit together!  Livs got her plaid for like $2, and Kelcy got her little white flower dress and jean jacket for a grand total of $6!
I seriously felt like I went back in time.

you will never

I'm always using these types of phrases:

"Enjoy your youth.  You'll never be younger than you are at this very moment."

It's true though!  It's just like when I'm hosting at work and customers come up to me and ask,  "how far away are we?" "is it almost our time to be sat?".  And I find myself saying, "don't worry, you're closer than you ever have been."  It's the same with my longing to be 21.  "I'm closer than I ever have been."

But back to the youth quote.  I want to start living by it, and I think I already have.  I'm going to stop saying "no" to hanging out with friends or going out when I have work the next morning.  And who cares if I have a late night food craving? If I don't do all of these things now, a ten years down the road when I'm so overrun with work, family, and the hassles of "the real world", I'll wish I could go back and do it over again.

And now for the only two good pictures taken last night:

I love this picture despite the fact
that we weren't ready at allll.

You might be thinking that all I've blogged about lately is Coachella.  And you're right.
I am soooo sad that I missed my chance to go to Coachella once again.  I was going to finalize the plans and buy the tickets this week, but guess what?? They already sold out.  In like 6 days.
So here are some pictures for you all (and me) to look at.  I'm pretty sure they're all at Coachella.  It looks like I'll have to buy my tickets next year as soon as they are released.  Have fun to all of you who are going to be having the craziest three days of your lives.

I'll have to save my outfit
ideas for next time...

I consider you all very fortunate.

line up

I am crossing my fingers and toes in hopes that I can make it to Coachella this year!!  I know the tickets are expensive...and that doesn't even count food, merchandise, hotel, etc.  BUT, I've been dying to go and every year I keep saying, "I'll just go next year."  Well, I'm afraid that if I don't go this year, I won't go next year, and I'll never be able to experience those three days of adventures with my friends.  
I'm excited for The Black Keys, Arcade Fire, Empire of the Sun, Kanye West, Wiz Khalifa, Ratatat, Chromeo, Jimmy Eat World, Yelle, and Ellie Goulding!!  I'm sure there are many more bands I would love to hear, but I need tips from you all on what songs to listen to!!  

What are your favorites?! If I do end up going, I want to know as many of the songs sung as possible :)

first day royalty

Today was the first day back to school.  This semester is going to be a tough one.  Kelcy and I decided to get all of our hard core business classes out of the way this semester.  But that means we have to take three of the classes we've been dreading, all at one.  And to top it all off, they're all in the same lecture hall.

But it was a good day overall.  And what made it that much better, was the Burger King King.  He was wandering the Memorial Union when Kelcy and I went downstairs to get our Jamba Juices.  I saw him meandering around last semester, but it was amazing to see him in all his glory on the first day of school!

I'm trying to forget that he was, in fact, kind of creepy.  Like how he snuck up on Kelcy and was literally centimeters behind her looking over her shoulder at the picture.  And when we turned around, shocked to see him so close, he simply gave us the "A-Okay" sign and walked away.

How were your first days back?!

hello again lovelies

Wowww.  It has been WAY too long since my last post.  If I were you guys I would have thought that I disappeared when the new year came!  But I'm back :)

My NYE wasn't spent at some extravagant party toasting with champagne and dancing until I had to kick my heels off.  Instead, I was at home with Kelcy and Paige, packing for our early morning flight to Kauai with my Mom and Dad!  We did have a toast, champagne thanks to Joel (Paige's BF), and a mini dance party.  Then we hit the hay, woke up at 5 in the early morning, and made our way to the airport.
Kauai was amazing!!  It was so much different from the other islands, but it was so lush and beautiful.  In fact, it was kind of chilly some days! Here are some pictures from the trip, and now you can see what I've been up to for the past ten days. 
hat shopping in hanalei haha
Giving Kel a piggy back ride :)
horseback riding!
Kel and Paige with the coffee beans
The mini-plane we got to ride in!

Where a scene in
Tropic Thunder was filmed!!
The part where Ben Stiller was a captive.
We got to talk into cool headsets

Thanks Mom and Dad for the trip :))
 It was so great to spend ten days with the parents and Paige since I don't get to see either that much when we're all back in Arizona.

Now I've got a day to do laundry, unpack, and then repack for my trip to California with Mom and Kel!!
