short hair (& other fun life things)

today is the first saturday i have had to just stay in bed past 7 am in what feels like ages.
 and it feels good.

life has been hectic lately, but i would not have it any other way. there is something about being busy and not even thinking about crossing off a day in your calender that is freeing and wonderful. sometimes lack of structure in our routine-centered lives is a good thing. 

i have experienced a lot of cool things in the past few weeks, so let's play catch up.

what could this mean....
i cut my hair off! thank goodness, finally. a whole 7 inches, people. 
i went climbing with my buds. which we soon figured out that going on a saturday night with the most granola people out there was not the greatest of ideas. let's just say, there were lots of laughs and smirks that headed our way that night.  
i have started a regular bible study with my friends (claire is the one pictured). to be encouraged every thursday by friends who are growing in their faith as i am is the best thing ever. 

from a dinner with my friends from school last week. mmmmm burgers and milkshakes. 
i finally finish this art piece for a competition! i painted a pop art-esque fox on fabric. then dyed the remaining white fabric and put it in a loom. then embroidered a few stitches just for funzies. let it be known that i named this piece "what does the fox say".  i was in a rush and that was the first thing that popped into my mind, OKAY?

my new favorite outfit. i have worn it maybe 3 days in a row? sorry all. 

yay for photos in an empty restaurant! i would have had these photos taken if there was people in there or not, but i guess it was just my special day.

one of my dearest friends is back from college on her spring break. it's good to eat frozen yogurt and take too many photos when you haven't seen someone in a while. 

this is elliot. happy about him, coffee, and forced photos.


friends, have a wonderful saturday. i know i am going to.
