we have a treat for you tonight. but first, some news:
1. the worst of this week is over. taylor b. got a 98 on her essay. taylor o. is perfectly caught up on her hw, and got permission to miss classes on friday.
2. we're takin' a little road trip down south. it'll most likely be a blast, but things could go either way.
3. we're having a sleepover with leslie on thursday night. and friday. and saturday.
4. finally, we ran tonight. success for one of us. pain and failure for the other. guess who? it's like a game, except you don't get to learn the answer. ha. those are the worst kinds of games. am i right, am i right?
okay, okay, enough chit-chat. time for the treat. we must warn you, however, that anyone who is anyone has already seen this, because it was on taylor o.'s facebook wall. but for you nobodies out there, here you go:
well you know what they say, lint is a shell's best friend.
this has got to be quick, because we've got loadsies of hw to do. but we just had to get that video moved down on the page. you understand.
we're embarking on our 3rd week as sophomores here at BYU. it's crazy, right? not really. it's just about normal.
there are a few things we'd like to touch base on, however.
the first is: dinner.
dinner has always had a special place on our blog, and in our stomachs. we've taken special care this year, so that it continues to be on the top of our "to do" lists. whatever that means.
the next is: coincidences.
there aren't any. unless there are. we're still figuring this one out.
we can't do it. nevermind all the money we've wasted on races that we won't be running, or on trying to find alternate forms of exercise, or on just plain old "trying-to-find-out-what's-wrong-with-us." nevermind all doz funds. it just plain stinks. so all you runners out there, run from the heart. from the soul. do it for us. soul runnas.
"facebook stalking is really just so fun." "but it's way more fun when you have homework to do. if you're doing it doing free time, it's just...boring."
"facebook is like a refrigerator. you get bored and keep checking, but nothing ever changes."
number five: dessert.
much like dinner, dessert is what one might call one of our, "enduring qualities." we're fine with that. more than fine, actually. not to mention the cookie cookbook signing that taylor b. attended on saturday night. maybe you were wondering, maybe you weren't, but this little celebration did include sample cookies from this book, just as all celebrations should. we own this book now. signed and everything. that's over 3 months of daily celebrations. win.
last, and definitely least:
we like asian food, a lot, hugh jackman is a problem and, time for fall. that is all.
here's a picture-play-by-play of the weekend. actually, just saturday. we didn't take pictures on friday.
first, the BYU game. the game was pretty fun, except for the first half. so. hot. "sweaty beasts," would be a good way to describe how we felt. we won, though, which was pretty cool.
secondly, taylor found out while at the game that she made it into the BYU womens' acapella group, "noteworthy." you know, the group that was on the tv show "sing off" last year? when she got the call, taylor b. was ready with the camera and snapped this cameo shot:
we think it's prof pic worthy.
next, we went to a fun dessert party to celebrate hayley heath's 20th birthday. wowza! she ain't a teenager no more, and will probs be engaged soon. that was pretty fun, and it was a mess. in a good way, naturally. hayley is 2 years older than taylor o. right now. hence the "2" fingers being held up in this photo:
finally, as we walked into hayley's apartment complex, we saw this lovely couple cuddling on the couch while surfing the internet. when we left 2 hours later, they hadn't moved even a muscle. now THAT'S dedication. they must really love each other. cuties.
our first week of school went well, and though we have a lot of homework, we really like our classes and teachers. this semester is bound to be a promising one.
one a final note, yesterday was isaac's birthday,
and today is philip's birthday.
happy 19th, guys! they're both leaving on their missions in just a few weeks, and we're bound to miss them tonz.
remember this? first day of school last year, sooo cute and sooo excited and sooo adorable. we have like the same name and everything.
anyway, this was us on monday:
it's kind of like those games on the back of cereal boxes. "find the 5 differences between the pictures." shorter and longer hair, practically all grown up, and significantly less enthusiastic. same door in the background, though.
oops. that's only three. oh well.
anyway, our first week has gone just about how we thought it would go.
buuuut, back-tracking even further, our last weekend of summer, we met up with some coolio friends, swam, hiked, slept, and ate out every night. yeeee. it was like our end-of-summer celebration.
of course, you already know how we like to celebrate, and how we find every excuse to do so, so monday night we decided to eat out again. we are certainly living on the edge. we're just that type.
so this week we've had some shocking experiences, and some pretty average ones too. we're hoping things will just slowly level out into a significantly less exciting, and more monotonous schedule.
well, hw time.
oh, and john mayer was at the apple store. just sayin'.
