I've Been Tagged...

Today I was informed by my snister Ahlin that I have been 'tagged' by my other lovely sister Lauren. I can be quite dull at times, so don't feel like you have to read it all. . .

"8 Things":

8 TV Shows I Love to Watch:
The Office
Project Runway
What I Like About You
Myth Busters

8 Favorite Restaurants
Pasta Factory
Olive Garden
Cafe Rio

8 Things that Happened Yesterday:
I went to a choir concert
Put together photography portfolio
Considered cleaning my room
Threw (artsy word for made on a wheel) a vase
Bought the ABBA Gold album and listened to it about 80 times
Bought the Alfred Hitchcock silent/unreleased film collection for 5 bucks at wal mart..thats right
Ate 3 bowls of rocky road
Went to Bajio with Nate... and then again by myself after school...

8 Things I am Looking Forward to:
Matty and Jade's little no name to arrive
Lauren and Ben's little girl to come!...i'll have to be patient
My new business cards to show up..
Photography shoot this weekend
Bajio tomorrow...
My date on friday..
Graduating high school and going to UVA (woot woot!)
The next time I eat...soon ...very soon...

8 Things on my Wish List:
More $ to put on my gas card (haha right..)
Two weeks to do whatever I want whenever I want with whomever I want
Saving enough money for a new car to call my own
A micro lens for my camera..or two
Saving enough money for a new iPhone (i hope I'm not starting to sound greedy...these are all just wishes not wants or needs...)
My business to expand and grow
A 4.o GPA
Being able to get into UVA

Six random things:

1. I absolutely LOVE old anything...movies, clothes, books, anything.
2. My room is completely decorated in Audrey Hepburn/Humphrey Bogart posters books movies and quotes...sad i know
3. I eat at Bajio every day except of course Sunday. You think I'm kidding? Everytime I walk in, all the workers wave and by the time i get to the counter they already have my order going. Ensalada Bajio. Yep.
4. I can never get sick of Nate. People ask me all the time that after this long how can I not be sick of him? But I dont know - he's just an awesome kid to have around. (cheesy I know but i havent been all that serious so far)
5. I started a photography business called Seized Wonders over the summer and now its starting to finally take off! its really exciting, we'll see where this takes me.
6. I always have to do everything in a certain order. I'm definitely not a clean freak, but when it comes to getting into my car (unlock, open, unlock again, shut door, open door, shut door, seatbelt, ignition, tunes, reverse, check what i look like in the mirror, drive) or making burritos (i wont even begin to explain that one) it always has to be done in the exact order every time or it stresses me out. Weird. I know.

Then & Now


As I was looking through and getting rid of some of my pictures on my computer I ran across my homecoming picture from last year. I laughed because we looked SO ridiculous. We didn't go to the actual dance because we weren't sixteen, but since we were on student council we got free pictures. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to do a then and now picture!

buying wizard head candles at a yard sale..
getting our hands copied
mixing our gum....

It's that time of year again....Homecoming. I had a great day with Nate. We did a picture scavenger hunt with our group and had an amazing dinner and the dance was one of the best i've been to. So I am proud to say it was a success. (the pictures aren't so much in order)
