Trampolina

Just a couple of bros jumping on a trampoline before one of them marries the other one's sister.
As one does.

DC Expat Brunch

Otherwise entitled "Happy Heart!"  Which is entirely cheesy, but also completely true.

The ever lovely Carolyn was in town, so she, Bekah, SAJ, and I got together for brunch at Eva's Bakery (which was delicious, by the way) last Friday.  Oh, how it made me so happy!!! Like a child at Christmas time, all week I kept thinking it was Friday.  I only regret that we didn't have more time together.  I love all of these girls, and am glad that two of them already live here.  Now to get working on that Campaign to Convince Carolyn to stay...

Dc brunch!!!!!

Ogden Temple Open House

The day before Paigey's wedding, we (family and friends) went to the open house of the Ogden Temple.  It was a really special trip, in large part because some of our friends are not LDS, and it was enlightening to see it through their eyes.

That being said- it was a special day, lots of fun, cherished memories- I can not get over these pictures:

Redeeming Quaintness

Bountiful earned a point in my book when I came across this hand-written note on a storefront.

Downtown

Charming, yes?

Insomnia

I have had such bad insomnia over the past few weeks.  
This week has been the worst.  
I'm hoping that will go away soon once essay revisions stop haunting my every moment.
Currently awake over the usage of "witness" vs "experience".

Glow-In-The-Dark Mini Golf...

...is the best kind of mini golf!!!   

Sam, Kristie, and I played Hawaiian themed glow-in-the-dark mini golf a few weeks ago.  It was so great!  We went around the course twice, because there were only 9 holes.  I had no idea that it would be glow-in-the-dark beforehand, so I consider it quite fortunate that I wore the best outfit for the situation.  Does anyone know if it would be possible to paint the walls of my house like this, and also the walls of all the buildings that I frequent?

Miscellanea from my life lately:

Working at the cosmetics counter sometimes means you get a pineapple.

Working the cosmetics counter also means that you suddenly take way more pictures of yourself. Yay for even more selfies.

Selfies For Daze

"Camille, you haven't posted any pictures that you've taken of yourself on your iPhone* in a while.  Please provide us with some!!" -said everyone all the time.

*I secretly hate the word selfie, but it's just so concise that I find myself using it anyway.

Thanks for adventuring with me, Annabelle!

Valentine's Day Brunch

There's no holiday that I love more than Valentine's Day.  This year, Sydney, Ellie, and I went to brunch at Blue Plate Diner, which earned a place on my Utah Bucket list after I saw it on the DDD app.


I also wore all pink and red.

Gilgal Gardens and Tea

Sergio and I went to Gilgal Gardens this week.  I had heard that it was a pretty bizarre place...but honestly, the first thing that crossed my mind was, "I can see people being killed here.  This seems like the site of a murder mystery."  Now, disclaimer, I just finished reading Gone Girl, but still.  I say I'm right.
