Congratulations Boss & Alice!
Baby No. II...

Ruby came to me in my dreams last night--Allison brought Ruby over to my house so I could meet her--A baby with Allison's big blue eyes and strawberry blonde hair. In real life--Jason texted me the good news and I told him about my dream. His reply confirmed that Ruby was indeed born with lots of strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes! Ruby--it was a pleasure to meet you--in my dreams!

I'd Rather... hiking here!
Everyone that comes into my office always says the weather is so nice, but I can never enjoy it because I'm stuck inside. I hope to get out and enjoy nature this weekend.

Happy 27th Jordan Andrew!

Oh Jordan! Where to begin...
*How I love your mix tapes
*You were the best snowboarding buddy
*You were my constant friend on family trips
*We can only really enjoy The Breakfast Club (tv version) when we watch it together
*You help me buy cars -- and you're really good at it too!
*You would always threaten people I would seriously date (minus Tommy)
*You have one green eye and one brown eye
*You are the father of one beautiful little girl
*You let me take Eliza for fun Aunt Saturdays
*I am always the first person you call when you're in a bind -- which flatters me
*We used to get ready every morning when we lived w/ Mom & Dad {prob my favorite memory}
*Lastly, I have always loved your name!

I hope your birthday is EVERYTHING and MORE!

We love you!

Volume II

I stumbled across the best news of my life while reading some random magazine...

She & Him is releasing "Volume II" on March 23!!

This album will be mine! And better yet I realized they have a website: {naturally}

AND I WISH I MAY, I WISH I MIGHT...See one of their shows!!

Here is a little excerpt from their article:

Zooey explained, "I always used to drive around as a kid, looking out the window, listening to oldies radio and looking at the sun. There is like, this amazing feeling about the light in California. I always write music with that in mind -- the melodies have to feel like sunshine and shadows at the same time."

Good Read.

I just finished reading this book called The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I knew I was going to need something to keep my occupied during our flights to/from Mexico, so I called up my previous roommate Kristin for some good books ideas. Luckily, she introduced me to this book and even let me borrow it!

..."this is a superb tale of physical adventure, political suspense, and romance."

If you're in the market for a new novel, I def recommend this one. Look it up!

Alice In Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland opens today! 3.5.10 Tim Burton really knows how to translate his imagination into cinematic masterpieces. And his imagination appeals to mine! I love his use of colors and exaggeration in every sense of the word. I hope to thoroughly enjoy this film--this weekend!

Test Day x Two

Maria Taylor says it best...

"Well, I didn't know it
And if I tried too hard
I'd probably blow it
The rest is just a guess

If it's all just luck
It was tough enough
If we lost some time
Then we'll make it up, up"

Good luck him! I'll keep my fingers crossed...
p.s. I'm really proud of your will to keep studying last night!

C is for...

For the next four days I will be eating, sleeping, breathing, studying, HATING calculus!!!!!! My week off couldn't have come a worse time. I have my second calc exam this Thursday--and I missed two of the most important lectures to date. I hope the tutoring center is all that it's cracked up to be...or else I'll be down for the count {me and my GPA}. Help.
