Happy V Day

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

XVII (I do not love you…)

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

– Pablo Neruda

Rachel Bilson

Chick Crush Day 3
Rachel Bilson
I’ve loved her since she was on the O.C. when I was in high school. I think she’s cute and has great style and I love her hair. She is always voted best dressed in magazines, and had a guest spot in one of them for a while. I wish she would get on a tv show again or something!

Man Cave

BAHAHAHAAHAHAHA
We were dying when we saw this…Jake literally stopped in his tracks and was like ohmigosh…wth.
So I made him sit there and take a picture. What is that guy doing with that dog? It looks slightly inappropriate. Anway, I was thinking Jake could decorate his man cave like this. Hahahahaha. I’m so mean.

Lately

Just thought I’d post some photos from my activities lately.
These are from when we went up to Park City for the last night of the Sundance Film Festival. We went to Harryos and saw Method Man.


Jenn Barich came in from San Francisco for work so we went out in Salt Lake for the night…this is my 90 year old boyfriend who asked me to dance…awesome. lol.

Jake and I took Kale to that new place at Riverwoods that has the Surf Wave and stuff…well this is me trying to teach Kale how to bowl on the little kids bowling lane. I think I was trying to say good job and he was just sitting there staring….he got it later. He was actually really good. It was fun too…I recommend going there.

Mila Kunis

Chick Crush Day 2

Mila Kunis

“I’m not famous…at best I’m recognizable.” – That’s how she describes herself in Febuary’s Comso. I thought that was kind of funny. I think she’s gorgeous! Apparently she also loves Star Trek and she’s a total nerd. haha. She left the Ukraine at age 7 and started doing commercials at age 9. She lied about her age when she was 14, so she could be on That 70’s Show, which she was on for 8 years. Anyway, she’s on my list because I love her movies lately and like I said I think she’s beautiful. I’d love to look like her any day!

Erin Heatherton

Chick Crush Day 1
Erin Heatherton
I’ve talked about Erin before, so she may seem familar. Or maybe because she’s a 5’11” Victoria Secret Model from IL. She is only 21. She started walking for DVF, but has modeled for tons of designers. I think she’s seriously one of their cutest models, and as I’ve said before, my inspiration to go to the gym!

Glamour’s Rules

Glamour Magazine listed some do’s for this month and I decided that I liked two of them a lot.

The first one that I like was…Finding what’s you and wearing it to death! This totally works for me, because I find that I like to wear and buy the same type of things over and over so that makes me happy. Besides, that’s how people recognize your style right? and what makes it more fun when you do decide to mix it up.

The second thing I liked was…Having a chick crush! I always have chick crushes on celebrities etc…not like lesbo ones though. haha. Anyway so that’s why I have decide to post a list of chick crushes for the rest of the month. One a day. Mostly of people I like are super cute or that I respect or etc. So yay for you to get to see who I love!

I literally laughed out loud multiple times during this movie. I thought it was so funny. It’s not just a chick flick. Jake was dying too. Go see it.
Plus Natalie Portman is adorable. Looks wise and hilarious. Also, I didn’t even know Lake Bell was in it, but I love her too.
