The Voice

I’m SO excited for this show!

I’ve gotten real tired of American Idol (who hasn’t?!). In my opinion, Kelly is the ONLY real Idol.

Currently watching and i think its phenomenal! SO entertaining! Xtina is the ultimate diva. Cee-Lo knows his stuff. Blake’s country strong. Adam Levine is….. yumm.

And WHERE can I get me one of them spinning chairs?! #need

I think this show is gonna be added to my weekly viewing schedule…. (putting it in my outlook as I type this)

What do you guys think? Does the show have staying power??

Also, you must watch the video for the new Maroon 5 song “Never Gonna Leave This Bed”

Swoon-worthy to say the least

Easter Fun!

Happy Easter weekend all! Hope you got a day or two off of your obligations to relax and enjoy the company of loved ones.

I have an exciting weekend planned and I can’t wait! One of my best friends is in town and we’ve got lots to do!

Got my free coffee (earth day special, get yours asap!) from Starbucks this morning (Bou has one too!). What would I have done without that boost of caffeine on a day like today!? Happy Earth Day 🙂

After our coffee run this morning, we all attended an anti-protest of sorts! It was at Planned Parenthood in Highland PArk, MN. Apparently every year on Good Friday, this clinic gets a whole bunch of pro-life protesters. To counter that and show support for the clinic, pro-choice rally was organized to happen at the same time. It made for such a great morning! Everyone was so upbeat (despite the dreary, chilly weather) and I felt like we really came together with the community. It was a very meaningful and invigorating experience! I loved demonstrating, actively participating, and supporting something I feel very strongly about. We marched for about an hour and a half with giant pink signs. They held an inter-faith prayer service and we even got to give video testimonials about why we support Planned PArenthood. I was so happy to be able to be a part of something so meaningful and positive. Plus, we had fun! I am hoping to get involved with more volunteer activities after graduation (when I have time and a normal schedule)

We have quite an evening planned as well! Shopping for formal dresses is first on the agenda. Our next formal is coming up just before graduation! Should I wear glitter shoes again!?

After that, we’re heading to the biggest buffet in MN for dinner–my friend is the biggest chinese food fiend I’ve ever met and this buffet is absolute HEAVEN. Check it out–Lake St/Hiawatha called the Teppanyaki Buffet–you won’t be disappointed.

After that, a fun night out with my best friends 🙂

Hopefully we get another limo to chauffeur us around town!

Saturday will include buying wine, cheese, and macaroons from Surdyks and watching hP7. I’ve only seen it like 4 times since the DVD came out….

Sunday morn means Easter brunch and doing some homework! Bummed I couldn’t go home to be with my family this Easter but they’ll be here soon enough for graduation and I’ll be home for an extended visit in June. I have quite a busy week next week to get ready for anyway! Classes ramping up for finals and the week culminating in Spring Jam.

And I have a Skype interview Monday with a school in Beijing! I may teach English there next year! #fingerscrossed

Literal Black Swan

This guy is INCREDIBLE!

And the guy dancing isn’t bad either 😉

This is such a unique combination of the arts! I love it.

I volunteered at an event last week where young kids (like 2nd grade) got a break dance tutorial from a campus group. The group of 20-something aged guys performed for the kids, taught them basic moves, and then let them battle each other. It was so fun and adorable and the kids loved it! But those guys teaching us had NOTHING on this guy! Who knew the human body could even MOVE like that?! I’m impressed, to say the least.

P.S. How cool does Yo Yo Ma seem playing cello for a breakdancer?! I bet he’s a fascinating man. Also, love that the dancer is repping the Red Sox!

Bucket list item 56: Learn to breakdance. Or play the cello (I already know the viola…)

DIY

PS I made this is one of my favorite websites! They have tons of great ideas for DIY unique accessories and the instructions are SO easy to follow! I’ve tried my hand at a couple and loved everything I’ve made. My next endeavor will be this one:

How-To Video:

 

I have TONS of strands of pearls just heaping in my jewelry tray and haven’t worn them in years. I’ve got my go to couple strands and neglected the rest, unfortch. I also have a sparkly broach I’ve been holding onto for some time now. PERFECT way to reinvent and bring new life to all of my lonely and forgotten accessories!

 

I’ll post a pic of my final product soon!

(planning on a creative study break later)

Baby Elephant!

I’m having a great day despite the gray weather and I hope you all are too 🙂

This video made my happy day EVEN better. Watch as a (relatively) little baby elephant plays in a pool!

 

 

I die every time he jumps out and then comes right back for more LOL

“Look ma! Look at me! MOM!”

 

Does Netflix have Dumbo on instant?? I’m craving some more cute-elephant-ness….
