It was SO sunny and warm and nice today! I was in love! We haven't had this weather in the longest time and I've been in some desperate need of sun.
I actually got to wear a tank top today without a sweatshirt. I'm so ready for summer to just be here right now.
When we got home today Lauren and I did THREE 10 minute work-outs on on demand. I haven't worked out in so long so I was beat by the end. But it actually felt good and relieving. I should probably do it more often.
Lauren also gave Ramona a bath today. I had her keep spraying her with water so that she could shake it all off for my picture. :)

p.s. I can't believe it's the last day of January.


Yesterday I got my haircut. I'm trying to grow my hair out and get rid of all my layer, and in order to do that I need to keep cutting it short. ugh!

Let's face it. I love the sky!
Especially when it's clear and pretty.
These were taken at two different times tonight, but very close together. The sky kept changing and I couldn't keep up with it.

One time I made a dinosaur cake with some friends. Pretty much the coolest thing I've ever made, probably because it was a dinosaur that you can eat.
I think dinosaurs are cool and I love to eat... so there you go!
But I wonder what it is about dinosaurs and cakes... because I just HAD to use these dinosuar sprinkles on my cupcake. hhmmmm...

and I guess Lauren and I were in a Valentine's day decorating mood because all of the ones we decorated ended up having hearts or lovey dovey stuff of some sort on them.
You guys don't even know, these cupcakes are  SO good!

project runway tonight. oh YES!


Yesterday I went to Bootcamp (a Salvation Army event) to see all my friendlies that I haven't seen in FOREVER! It was a great time and I was in the happiest mood and I didn't want to leave. I love all my friends to death.
So this was taken on the way to camp. We took highway 1 which goes all along the coast from our house to Santa Cruz. It was absolutely beautiful and sunny yesterday and I was in love. I haven't seen the sun in what seems like forever because it's been all stormy and rainy and icky here. But it was out finally and I just had to take pictures. Especially because we were going alongside so many beautiful beaches.

one thing I actually like about where I live.... the beautiful blue skies! They make for wonderful pictures!

So on Saturday I went to the goodwill when I was with the Coverts and Stephanie and look what I found.
Isn't it pretty?
All three pieces were together on display and I thought it was so cute and Stephanie really wanted me to try it all on. So I did and I fell in love.
It's one of my all time favorite finds at a thrift store and I can't wait to wear it!

Kez is here!!!
We picked Kez (my BFF) up from the airport today because she's staying the night before she goes to bootcamp with mi padre and Stephanie tomorrow.
Before we went home my mom, Kez, Lauren and I stopped to get a late breakfast/lunch. That would be called Brunch. Anyway, we went to 'Salada' which is a super cool cafe, resaurant place by my house.
They had these cool paintings and Lauren's head was right below them so I wanted to take a picture of their two heads. haha

oh and in case you're wondering, I got an egg and cheese sandwhich with bacon.  SO GOOD!


What's up 2 in the morning?!
So we stayed the night on Friday at the Coverts house and of course didn't get any sleep. Taylor randomly got up and went into the kitchen to boil something for her shoulder, so I decided to keep her company since I wasn't getting any sleep anyway. So as we were waiting we decided to take pictures... duh and this is the result. We like to have fun together. We complete each other!!

oh and funny story about this picture... before we started taking them I tried to sit up on the counter across from Taylor and didn't know there was a pan behind me. So as I was getting up there I knocked it over and it made a HUGE loud noise like you wouldn't believe. I was freaking out and felt so bad becuase it obviously woke everyone up and was just so embarrassing/kind of funny.

*self time I love you (and you Taylor Christine)

p.s. Last night Stephanie and I watched The Pregnancy Pact. I would just like to say that those girls are so stupid and watching them made me so mad/sad for them because they seriously were crazy!


Friday afternoon Stephanie, Graham and I headed out to camp to surprise Taylor for her (late) birthday. It was the best thing ever! We got to their house when she wasn't home, then went in her room and when she got home we were skyping with her and claire from their living room. She had no idea we were in her room until we slowly started showing her clues about where we were. Then all of a sudden we hear loud, fast footsteps coming down the hall and then BAM! She's in the room all surprise, excited, happy and jumpy!!!
It was so fun and we had a great night.

Well since I've been writing all week about how much the weather sucks it only makes sense to mention it one more time, don't ya think? At least today wasn't as bad as it's been. Only just non stop raining all day. No more thunder, lightening and hail. I just want the rain to go away and the sun to come. Or even a better idea, how about we just fast forward a few months and have it be summer already. I think that's a brilliant idea... if only that were realistic.

Speaking of summmer... I had my camp interview today and I think it went pretty well. It got me even more excited for camp this summer and I didn't even know that was possible!!


Well yesterday there was...MORE RAIN! surprise surprise!
This weather has been crazy and it's making me sad. I don't like all the wind/rain/hail/coldness that's been going on since Monday. Can't it just stop and be sunny like California is supposed to be? I would very much appreciate that.

So when we got home it was pouring and hailing like you wouldn't believe so Stephanie and I decided that we would go outside and make a video of us in the crazy bi-polar weather. But when we went outside it all stopped. :(
Here is a picture of what our end of the street looked like. The heavy wind blew over all the garbage cans and made the street filled with dirty, crappy, wet garbage. EW!


Tuesday= more and more rain. ew. disgusting. me no like. AT ALL!
This is what I felt like doing all day long (since I woke up). I dreamt of going home, putting on sweats and my favorite sweatshirt, drinking a nice big mug full of hot chocolate and doing absolutely nothing. And that's exactly what I did.

I haven't uploaded in a while due to the stupid weather, internet failing and power outages. BUT, I'm back.
Monday it was rainy all day so we just stayed home and enjoyed a nice day off inside and dry!
This picture is really dark but it's Stephanie and Lauren, both on laptops just chillin'!

Right after church today Stephanie, Graham, Lauren and I went to camp to hang out with Katie and Claire. I personally had a very good time. Those girls make me laugh so hard and I can't help but be happy when I'm around them.

So today while Stephanie was playing piano for Claire and Lauren... Katie, Graham and I snuck out and took pictures. I had a lot of fun with them! Here's a few.


Stephanie came yesterday, and last night we skyped Katie and Claire. It was hilarious. They are so funny. Check out the middle... Stephanie and Claire put their faces together

I'm tired. This picture is boring, but I had absolutely no creativity in me tonight. It's been a long week.
I went to go see 'Leap Year' with my dad since it's just me and him for most of the night. Very cute movie. I love Amy Adams and seeing her plus the movie made me want to go to Ireland so bad.
I'm SO glad it's a three day weekend. Stephanie comes tomorrow!!

this picture represents my love for foooood! and that's about it!

Thursday, January 14, 2010


that's what I'm talking about!! (except the C)
Last Semesters grades came today and I am super happy with them. yay!!

oh and as I was leaving school today some random girl was walking by me and said "you have really pretty hair"...
my hair was straight and up in a frizzy ponytail all day, but thanks anyway!
It made my day!

Wednesday, January 13, 2010


I performed my monologue today. It's pretty much like our final for last semester but it's counted on this semesters grade. It's worth 20% of our final grade. awesome. But I did fine. Only messed up once, but he didn't dock me any points since mine was so long. THANK YOU!
But I'm so relieved to be done with it. It took so much stress off of me. It's crazy though how I could recite that thing a million times to myself and never mess up, but when I go on stage in front of my class I suddenly mess up out of no where. oh well. It's over now.

AND I went to the goodwill tonight. I haven't been thrift store shopping in SO LONG! and I mean it. I can't remember the last time my mom and I went. But I love it so much and it just makes me so happy and I feel like I belong there. I could spend all day just thrift store hopping and be totally satisfied.

AMERICAN IDOL SEASON PREMIERE!!! yea that's right. We are so very excited. I'll be even more excited during hollywood when Ellen is on!!

Blake Lewis should've won (yes I am still bitter about that).

It's a Monday.

I'm tired, lazy, emotional, stressed, already ready for the weekend...
So you get a flower,
because It's Monday!

Another self-portrait, yeah!
Ok so, when I'm bored I like to mess around with self-timer in various locations. That's why I have a lot of pictures of myself.
But self time is just the best! It has got to be one of my favorite features on cameras.

p.s. In this picture I'm sporting my new Switchfoot t-shirt!


SWITCHFOOT CONCERT! My dad got Graham and I concert tickets for Christmas, so last night the three of us went to the regency ballroom in San Francisco to see them. They were absolutely amazing. I think it might have been one of my favorite concerts yet. They were just so interactive with their fans, and they play so good live, and man can they rock! It was so much fun. I felt at peace and relazed in a way. I know that probably sounds weird since I was at a rock concert. But music just does that to me. I felt good. And not to mention Jon Foreman's voice just gives me chills and almost puts me to tears.
I also loved the concert because at times I felt like I was at one huge worship service. During some of the songs people had their hands up and I could just feel the love in that place.
If you've never listened to Switchfoot, please do. And if you like them but have never been to their concert, please do! I guarentee you will leave their so happy!

ask me questions!!

YES! I finally figured out how to do the motion blur stuff with the flashlight. Well, I didn't really figure it out, Abby Chamness told me how, but still, I can do it now!! I've always been interested in how people do this and now I know! It totally made my night just so you know.
And I wanted to try and only upload one picture a day this year, but this is technically four, but it's their still all in ONE uploaded picture. so whatever.

p.s. I filled out/turned in my camp application today online!!! while having a very long skype date with the one and only Taylor Covert!

ok so since so many of you are commenting asking how I did it/what I applied for, here you go:
1. you have to put your camera on a long shutter, self timer, a flashlight, and a dark space.
So pretty much while the camera has a long shutter, you put it on self timer, then while it's taking the picture you draw pictures with the flashlight. that's about it.

2. I applied for CIT then waitress

I don't know why, but for some reason I have a thing for taking pictures of my lower half. I just like it. I don't know why. I can't explain it. Some things you just can't explain.

I also can't explain what exactly made me do my chemistry homework tonight. I haven't done homework for that class in SO LONG! but for some reason I just sat down and did ALL of it . weird.

Also, I talked to my good friend Elise Jordan F. for a while today. I would just like to say that she is simply an amazing person. Truly, truly amazing. She's just so kind and gentle and good and has an overflowing love for Jesus Christ. She always knows what to say. She's so inspiring and I wish I was more like here. I cherish her friendship deeply.

p.s. AMANDA! these are my chinatown shoes I got for christmas!

I like hearts.

I Love my friends!

EYE see you! For some reason I just really love taking pictures of eyes. Ok, mostly my eyes, but still. I don't know what it is about them, but they just facinate me. I think eyes are beautiful features and they're almost always the first thing I notice about people.

I also love it when people's eyes match the color of whatever they're wearing. It makes me happy for some reason and I always point it out when I notice it.

It's just a lamp. Nothing special. It has no meaning and shows absolutely nothing about how my day went. It's just a lamp. A lamp that lights up the darkness.

oh and I just realized today how for this month only, the number of our picture will match up with date! I love stuff like that.

Sunday, January 3, 2010


Katie went home today. I miss her and Summer already, but I am more than happy that they got to come for a while. It's like nothing changed and things were back to normal when they were here. I loved it. I love them. Friendships are great things and I am so blessed to have so many in my life, even if most of them are miles away.
As for my day, mostly just dreading going to school tomorrow. I came home and my family all left to go to church, so I finally get to have some Emily time. It's been a while and I miss it. I think everyone needs time alone to get away from everything and just... be. It's good for you. Refreshing. So for me, that means playing the piano for a while, taking pictures, and listening to itunes.

Music and Pictures... my true loves that will never fail me.
and no, I don't usually sit on my piano, that would be a first

Saturday, January 2, 2010


I'm embarrassed to admit this, but I'm already stuck. It's only day two and I already had a hard time figuring out what to take a picture of. So I was chatting with Stephanie and told her that I was stuck and she replied with "silly Emily" and then suggested I take a picture of my favorite christmas present. This was definitely one of them.
Summer made this for me. It's a mirror with pictures of all my celebrity crushes surrounding it!!
oh man I'm in love with it (and them).
And I'm also kind of sad because this isn't the best picture and I'm already off to a rocky start. But oh well. I'll start taking better ones once I get off my butt and start doing stuff.

Summer left today. =(

Friday, January 1, 2010


I took this at Lands End. A beautiful park in San Francisco that has an amazing view of the ocean and of the golden gate bridge. My mom and I took Summer and Katie there today for some sight seeing.
Even on a cloudy, glum day it was simply gorgeous.

oh how I just love the ocean!

p.s. can you believe it's already 2010?? because I definitely can't. It's weird to me that the date will now be 1-1-10, with just a ten at the end. oh and I can now say, I graduate next year...weird!
