"picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor"

it's almost 3 am and i'm blogging!

yes i'm insane but bod blogged today so i feel like i need to blog as well.

why am i up this late you may wonder? well i'm wondering the same thing.

maybe i'm up this late because roommate chat just needed to happen tonight. maybe it's because i'm getting over an incredibly stressful week and my body doesn't realize i can sleep. maybe i'm up this late because today was such a great day i don't want to see it end.

i went and got cupcakes today with bod and brittany. they both blog and were talking about the provo "blog all-stars". (i think they both are considered blog all-stars)

dang how can i become one of those....? i think i need to get more people to read my!
i think i'll spend the next little while thinking of ways to make my life a little more exciting. maybe that way i'll get people to actually read this ;-)
(sorry mom you don't count because i know you'd read this no matter what)

so here i am at almost 3 am. the one thing i'll leave you with today...

i have decided to wear dresses and skirts more, why...because they are cute and girly and i am a girl so why not! spence even told me it was okay with him (how great is he!)

my lack of funds will result in a lot of homemade skirts so if anyone has advice for me i would most enjoy it.

a top ten list i found for wearing skirts:

1. Drawing your pants legs back from someone in disgust as you pass them is insufficiently scornful.

2. Studies have shown that wearing skirts is 90% effective in preventing VPL (visible panty line).

3. Ditto for "plumber's butt"

4. Ruffles on a skirt can be over-the-top glamorous. Ruffles on pants are only acceptable if your name is Mary, and a little lamb follows you everywhere you go.

5. It is impossible to smuggle someone in -- or out -- of prison, a masked ball, a hotel room, etc. by hiding them under your pants. (Plus, there is no such thing as "hooppants."

6. When you strap a gun to your thigh in pants, you lose the element of surprise.

7. You don't have to have skirts hemmed differently for flats or heels.

8. Twirling in a pair of pants results in 87% less happiness.

9. The word "skirt" has both a singular and a plural form, usable by all ("I am wearing a skirt today." "Instantly Mrs. Bagnet put some pins into her mouth, and began pinning up her skirts all round, a little higher than the level of her grey cloak.") The word "pants" has a singular than can only be used by fashion-industry people ("Designers are showing a high-waisted, wide-legged pant for fall").

10. Skirt blowing up, revealing underthings? Sexy. Pants falling down, revealing underthings? Humiliating.
