brain food.

HAPPY: nature valley granola bars. These little oat's 'n honey granola bars have kept me well fed and energized when sugar levels are down. I think I have about one of these a day and though each time I think,"no, not another one," it is usually the only piece of food I have near me and I'd rather eat my 37th bar than go hungry. That's right, my stomach more times than not tends to guide my thought process. I'm a growing girl and need a well balanced, hearty diet. These granola bars definitely don't do the trick solely by themselves but as a in between snack, they are great. So a big thanks to these little crunchy, oats 'n honey-ey granola bars that have kept my mind alert and my stomach, happy.

alive and well.. and a bit tired.

Due to a very busy week last week I have not been able to post a blog in over a week. But no worries I am alive and doing well. My little advertising group finished our Loreal brandstorm competition campaign and submitted it monday. It was my first real experience working on an advertising project and gave me good insight to what it is like; long hours. vending machine diets. creative, out-of-the-box thinking. research. granola bars and swiss rolls. group work. surveys. etc. Great experience and I'm still really excited about my major.. Let's just hope I get accepted come January.

Besides that school and work have just been keeping me busy. I'm sort of sick of waking up everyday by 7am. I remember my freshman year telling myself that I would never have an 8am class because there was no way I could wake up that early. joke's on me.

p.s. anyone have any good halloween costume ideas?

help me, help you.

Ladies. As part of my Loreal advertising competition that I am apart of we have created a survey to better understand our target market and our products needs. The product is perfume and the survey is short. So if you could take about ten minutes and do this multiple choice survey that would be great. love and appreciate you all.

Jurassic Park IV

I could survive for 60 seconds chained to a bunk bed with a velociraptor

Created by Bunk Beds Pedia

That one wussy kid got past the raptors in Jurassic Park 3, so if he can do it, I can.

W is for Weezer

Last night I went to the Weezer concert and to say the least it was a "perfect situation." For a long time I have wanted to go to their concert and finally going last night was like fulfilling another life goal of mine. With 3 older brothers that all loved Weezer I have practically been spoon fed the blue album since I started getting interested in music. Weezer was the first band I got into and one of the few that has survived the variety of music genres and trendy bands I've been through. So seeing their show was like an event I had been waiting for half my life. To say the least, expectations were exceeded. Rivers was a class-act and very talented. The entire Weezer crew put on a great show and fortunately played a lot of older stuff which I appreciated. I left the concert feeling like I got a bargain for the $30 I paid for my ticket. A big thanks to; Rivers, Patrick, Brian, and Scott, the Weezer band mates, for putting on a great show and creating amazing music throughout the past decade.

Segway's last month and Weezer concert this month.. Can't wait to see what life-goal-fulfililng-activity November has to hold. To be continued...

let's go fly a kite

I'd like to give props to Kylie Nixon for taking the picture that now has become the background of my blog title. She is an amazing photographer and has some great pictures on her blog. check it out. This picture comes from a fun, friday afternoon adventure in Utah County. A few weeks ago we went to the kite festival and had an enjoyable time watching the kite team, yes there is such thing as a kite team, flying our own kites, and getting free rides on the segways (a life goal of mine- check.) It was a great time and can't wait for the next random adventure that Utah has to offer us. Thanks again, beehive state.
