High School Memories!!

Hey everyone! Julia here, still hanging out at my parents' house in Memphis. MAN we have been having a good time! It's great to--oh wait, what's this? It's my high school yearbook! 


What? Open it? Oh, no, I couldn't possibly. No one really cares--hey! My senior class!

Man, we sure had fun, right guys? Ooh! Here's the volleyball team's page!

Go Mustangs!!

Let's see what else...oh, dear!! This is so embarrassing!

 I had totally forgotten that my old pal Drew and I were voted the wittiest of our class! Ha, not a big deal, guys. Anyway, back to--UGH!

Oh my gosh, I'm not really that smart, it was just that everyone in the class of 2004 was too kind! Anyway, let's move on and see if I can find my friends'--EEK!!

I had forgotten about this one! I remember now, the yearbook staff said it would just be easier if they used the same photo of me for all of my superlatives, poor Drew was dragged into this one, I felt so bad. LOL! Alright, back to looking at...OH MY GOODNESS

 I cannot tell you how mortified I am! I just wanted to take a trip down memory lane, but this is all getting a little too embarrassing! I hate having people know about all of these silly little titles that I won! Let's just put this yearbook back and go look at my old ACT results! Mom has them around here somewhere...I can't even remember what I got! cough 31 cough cough

I Feel Pretty

Oh, so pretty

I feel pretty

and witty

and gay

And I pity 

any girl who isn't me today.

I feel charming

 Oh so charming

 It's alarming how charming I feel.

 And so pretty

That I hardly can believe I'm real.

How to make a baby quilt!

Step 1: Try to crochet.
Step 2: Cry a lot while teaching yourself from a book.
Step 3: Punch the wall.
Step 4: Get the hang of crocheting.
Step 5: Fall asleep on yarn pile.
Step 6: Put squares together and realize you've spent three weeks on a "quilt" that's more the size of a poncho. It's a quoncho.
Step 7: Cry some more.
Step 8: Add fringe.
Step 9: Wait until you're mostly done. Then take pictures.

Lots of pictures.

If there's one thing you've learned from Etsy, it's that a quoncho is only as good as the surface upon which it is draped.

Drape that quoncho.

Keep draping, it'll look good sooner or later.

Travel Memo

Week of  9 Feb 2012
  • Flew from Salt Lake to Nashville (AND BOY ARE MY ARMS TIRED) with little doofus in tow: 
  • Picked up by Grandma (literally lol)

  • Drove to Rock Island, Tennessee
Look a little closer...
*sigh* closer...
Found it!
Note: It took me an obscene amount of time to make the above images, so do not point out any flaws because if you do OMG things will get started up in here.
  • Upon arrival, were met with skepticism by the locals.
  • Fortunately, were able to carry on in spite of our differences.

  • Received the word of God in the parking lot of Kroger.

  • Unsuccessfully sippy cupped.

  • Tragically froze to death at Fall Creek Falls.

  • Suffered another discouraging defeat in the war against baby hats.

  • Acted cute.

Currently in Memphis. 

Will continue updates shortly.

Say Cheese!

For various reasons (one of which may include wanting to be admired and loved by my peers), I joined Instagram! This means I now have three mediums through which to share pictures of my baby life. It also means that I am now able to overlap my picture posting even MORE! So, get ready for a triple helping, those of you who are my Facebook and Instagram friends.

Sloan acting as my personal lecturer/life coach.

If this face doesn't say, "I love mom," then I
don't know what does.

If this face doesn't say, "Finally, mom
isn't up in my grill tryin to kiss me in front
of everyone," I don't know what does.

See how cool my baby is? Please like me.

This was after I told him that Rick Santorum took
