School's Out!!!

YAY!  Thankfully, my school quarter is over.  I finished all my final exams and essays, and am just waiting on my grades.  I hope they are good.  I felt a burden lifted off my shoulders after I was finished with my last test.  It has been a truly wonderful, stress-free weekend.  I came home to a whole bunch of unhealthy but DELICIOUS snacks that Brandon bought for me... Pizza, rosemary olive oil bread, Costco blueberry muffins and banana chocolate muffins, and he had also bought me ice cream and kid cereal that I love.  Man, he is the best.  Also, my new shoes came in the mail.

Front view...

Oh man, they are SOOOO cute!  I don't regret buying them at all.  They are comfortable.  The heel is the perfect height, just enough to make me look taller but definitely does not hurt my feet.  Today I walked around in them for hours and it was nothing.  I didn't even need to break them in.  They are perfectly true to size, and match with EVERYTHING.  They look so incredibly cute even with jeans, as well as with all my dresses.  Speaking of which, I had Brandon take a picture of the outfit I wore today before we ran out the door.

The dress and skinny belt is from Forever 21, the cardigan is from Rue 21, the purse is Coach, the shoes are from Payless, and the mint and silver bracelet is from H&M. 

We had a splendid time today.  We actually had breakfast for once in our lives at a buffet, since Brandon was ill yesterday and didn't eat much, so he was ravenous when he woke up.  Turns out I love chicken fried steak and biscuits with white gravy! :-) We also had lots of other food there, but that was my favorite part of the meal.  That and the fresh watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, and pineapple.  Brandon's favorite was this salad with sprouts and this yummy sesame oil dressing.  By the way... I have a few photos for you guys on account of the fact that I was too busy with school to upload them before. 

Part 1: Phone pictures from the city I work in as well as at school....

 Summer flowers in full bloom!

 This was so beautiful in real life...

 There is this rose garden on the library grounds that I couldn't resist taking some pictures.

 I really like the color of these ones...

 A cool sculpture I have never noticed until now...

 Hanging flower baskets!  I want one, but they are too hard to take care of.

 This frog made me laugh.  He looks like he is praying.

A cool cat sculpture.  How creative!

Remember the tv show "Friends".... Well, we have a Central Perk in our city too! :P

Forget Me Nots!!... At least I think they the garden at school.  Reminds me of my favorite talk by Dieter F. Uchtdorf.

 I find that large piece of artwork at school awesome.  I won't be seeing that for another few months.  *Sigh* I am just enjoying my summer break for now.

Part 2: The trip to Portland that I never showed you pictures of.... Actually I didn't take many pictures.  But we went with a couple friends that invited us.  It was really fun!

This made me laugh...

Our friends, in front of our FAVORITE food cart in the world.  If you ever go to Portland, PLEASE eat 3 bulgogi beef tacos for me.

Me posing in front of this giant dragon in Chinatown.  (I was born in the year of the dragon.)

A yummy ice cream place we went to with very unusual ice cream flavors.

We also paid a visit to the rose gardens.  They weren't in full bloom yet but it was still pretty.  Notice Brandon is wearing his cute panda shirt....

That's all the pictures for now.  Also, a couple more things to look forward to: 

1)We will be visiting Utah in a couple weeks to see my family. 
2) Brandon and I will be purchasing bicycles!  
3) Thanks to school being over I have all kinds of energy to do what I want...
4) I have been watching this KDrama called "When a Man Loves a Woman." I can't wait to see how it plays out.

Anyway, I am glad to be out of school so I can blog more and just be all-around more sane. xoxox
