Alphabet Soup Play List

A year or two ago my favorite radio station 107.5 THE END(later 101.9) had what they called Alphabet Soup Weekends where they would play sections of the music library in alphabetical order instead of in order of popularity or by artist. naturally you can't get through an entire library of music from the 80's 90's and today's music in just three days but it was a great way to mix up the rotation of songs and hear some songs that I had forgotten about.
But up in Cache Valley the only radio stations we get are country, Mexican Band, and pop music. You can find MY 99.5 if your at the right intersection but its not reliable. So I came up with my own alphabet soup playlist on my Mp3 player starting with the A's and ending with "Zoo Station"-U2. and now to play it...
The first day was great with "25 or 6 to 4"-Chicago and "A little less conversation"-Elvis Presley. This whole library of music may take me a good week or two to finish which is impressive to me. I still remember when the only CD I owned was Eiffel 65's "I'm Blue" which i probably won't get to until next Monday.

Summer TO-DO List

Some things I'd like to get done this summer....

My backpack is dying and I don't feel like paying to buy one so....I'm going to make one!
Lets hope it turns out how I want. This is a pic of how I would like it to look, style wise.
Fabric and such: I still have no clue what I want to use.

I am also going to make a new wardrobe for me :)
I figure it will be a lot cheaper to make clothes instead of buying them. 
I desperately need professional attire and such.
Here are some pictures of things I hope to make....
Found thanks to the most wonderful site ever! Pinterest!

If you have any patterns or know of somewhere that has 
some that would be awesome!
Please let me know :)

Some of the things I have experienced in New York so far....

Driving is INSANE here. I think I almost died on my way from the airport to the hotel. They dart in and out of lanes super fast, turn corners super fast. There are lots of sudden speed up and stops. It is a very jerky and scary ride. I could never survive as a driver here. Thank goodness for walking and the subway. There are quite a few things that are freakin' awesome and close to our hotel! Yay! Pedestrians are a bit crazy too but I guess you have to be to survive in this busy city. The subway is awesome! It took me a bit to figure out how to work my metro card. But no worries, I've got it down now. :)  I love the look of the subways, all the mosaics and funky retro/old stuff. I'll have some pictures of them by the end of this week.

There is SO much to see! I hope I am able to fit in everything I want to do and still survive. At the moment I am running on about 2 and a half hours of sleep. Not very good/deep sleep either. Planes are not an ideal place to sleep. Goodness no. They even charge you for blankets and pillows now, so if you don't want to pay then you're stuck with your jacket as your pillow and blanket. And trying to sleep sitting up while trying not to end up on your neighbors shoulder or lap. Yeah, super hard. Thus explaining my lack of sleep.

New York is AMAZING though! I LOVE IT! There are cool things to see everywhere. So far I have seen: Ground Zero, Battery Park, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and some way cool buildings.
HAHAHAHA, Today while traveling somewhere on the subway this guy got on with his guitar and serenaded to the whole car of people. It pretty much rocked. Our own mini little concert. :)

Sorry if none of this made sense. I'm just jotting this down quickly before I go and do other exploring or maybe even a nap. The hotel bed I'm sitting on looks better and better by the minute.
Picture coming soon to Facebook and here :)

apartment sweet apartment {reorganized and switched around}

 we changed things around. I am so happy I had Jake to help me move things around, things went so much faster. I LOVE our new layout. By just rearranging our furniture we have SO much more room. It feels like we're in a new apartment. Anyways, on to the pictures.....

Here is our Bedroom

Our Kitchen and Frontroom

I now have a crafting/homework area!

Flo's new home. We get to see her more often now :)
