Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 307

Another week of Winter gone. Hooray! This last weekend was a great one too. Friday night I went out to dinner with friends and of course our traditional Sodalicious then home to watch the most recent episodes of Blacklist. After that Stacey invited me to Humor U, so he picked me up and we were off to see the show. A lot better than the first show I saw. After words we hung out with the gang and some of Stacey's Divine Comedy friends. It was fun to be out and social... which I feel like I haven't been in a while.

Saturday, I slept in and got some errands done, then was going to go off exploring by myself... but then my good friend Amber text me asking me what I was doing and I invited her to come with me. SO GLAD!! We had the best time exploring Big Cottonwood Canyon and snowshoeing/ exploring and making our own trail. Then we went out to dinner at the Porcupine which has THE BEST nachos.  Such a good day. Love that girl.

That night, I went to see the Revenant again! That is how much I liked it. Stacey wanted me to go with him to see it, so I told him I would. He loved it... as I knew he would. I feel like we have very similar taste in music and movies. We had a good chat in the car after the movies and then ended up spying on our friend Daniel's date door scene (I felt like I was 20 again spying on my roommates in the apartment complex) and then we ended up seeing deer at the park so we chased them for a little while. We are easily distracted. Anyway... it then got SUPER late so we called it a night. It is amazing... we were good friends before the trip, but now I feel like we are even closer friends. It is hard to describe.... but we are pretty tight, and we have a new bond. It happens when you travel extensively like that together. I have a similar bond with Daniel, Jared, Ian, etc.... backpacking and traveling together 24/7 for 2 or so weeks really bonds you together. It is always the joke on all of my trips to get matching tattoos because of the bond. Of course I would never do it... unless it was henna.

Sunday I went on a Photoshoot with my friend Kyle. I posted some pictures from the outing. It was pretty fun even though I didn't know his friends. There is something about a frozen waterfall that is super beautiful... I mean, waterfalls are beautiful in general, but frozen ones are pretty rad. I will have to post the pictures that Kyle took of me. I don't love them of me... but I am not really super happy with the way I look these days until I lose some weight. Oh well. It was still fun to do and I will still post the pictures anyway.

Monday was a Holiday and it was SO hard to go to work when so many of my friends had the day off and were playing. Ugh. Sometimes it is so hard to be a responsible adult. ha ha. Oh well. It was a pretty chill day at work and I of course went to the gym. I am getting SO SICK of watching Jurassic World. It plays EVERYDAY at the gym. I really liked it the first time I saw it and Chris Pratt is hot in it... but there is only so many times that I can watch people getting chased by dinosaurs. Maybe next week someone will want to watch a new movie.

Tuesday I FINALLY got new tires on my car. YEA!! I can tell a big difference driving on the road and I am glad I got them before any new snow storms come a long. They are so expensive! Especially for my car... but it needed to be done and Discount Tires was really great.

I have been watching Bachelor with MacKenzie. We love it. For the first time in a long time I actually LOVE the Bachelor. He is adorable and has some class. Along with the Bachelor... I finished New Girl (until the current episodes) and have started watching The Mindy Project from the beginning. I had seen episodes here and there, but I wanted to watch it from the beginning. LOVE it. Hilarious and I wish I was more like Mindy in a lot of ways. I will finish this one quick since each episode is only 20 minutes. I'm sure I will find something else.

Not much else is going on... my cousin Trav text me the other day a picture of his flight itinerary letting me know he was coming to town and wanted to hang out and get Sodalicious. SOOOOO excited. I LOVE my cousin Trav. I can't wait until he is here. The day after that his daughter was texting me... probably because her dad is coming and getting to see me so she wanted to say hi. She is adorable and I love her. I love everyone in my family... even my cousins's kids. So that is what I have to look forward to this weekend. :) Can't wait!

Whenever you talk about your car it makes me want a new car. True story. (But you know, our car is great. And I'm thankful for it.)

Your time with Stacey cracks me up. Creeping on door scenes and chasing deer? For real? :) Oh, and I think I need to see that movie, it sounds good. I never even saw Jurassic World, so maybe I should start going to your gym.
