indian food + photo adventures


Mmm it was a good weekend. The closer it gets to moving out, the more I realize how much I’m going to miss the life that I’ve made here in Provo this year. I’m excited to go home, and I’m excited for all that my summer will hold, but I’m full of all sorts of bittersweet feelings, because this year has just been so good. Less than two weeks left and I’m dyinnnnngggg!

Friday night was quite stellar, and it involved Indian food at Bombay House with the roommates, which was, of course, the best. Chicken coconut kurma and garlic naan bread for the win. Every time. We’ve talked about going to eat at Bombay House all year, and we finally got around to it just before the end of the semester. Food like this just makes me want to travel all over the entire world and eat delicious ethnic food every day of my life.

I was going to take a nice pretty picture of my plate {see bottom right}, but then I forgot and went and messed it up. That’s why I’m not a food blogger. Hopefully Caroline’s {see top right}, which still looks normal, makes up for it.

Saturday was a nice day for doing mostly nothing except look at blog improvement articles all day, and take a nap on the couch, and sit on Pinterest. But nothing days are always much-needed, right? And hey, I got ready, so that’s always a plus. {Excuse the dirty mirror.}

When we’d lazed around enough, Caroline and I trekked on-campus to the library where we checked out a couple DSLR cameras, and then went on an adventure with said cameras up into the neighborhood behind our apartment, and to a field-sort-of-a-thing that happens to be tucked up in there. And we took lots of pictures. And it was great. And now I really want a DSLR.

Right after church today we walked up to the same spot, and it was lovely. Today was just the perfect day, with the perfect temperature, and perfect-smelling flowers everywhere, and blue sky, and I’m going to miss days like these. Stay tuned for the end result of the photography adventures. In the meantime, here are a couple sneak peaks of my lovely roommate, who is a babe, and all eligible gentlemen should want to date her.



Let’s sing praises for better-quality-than-iphone images for a change. I hope everyone that happens to read this has a fabulous next seven days, and look out Idaho, because I’ll be coming for you in less than two weeks. {Insert alternating sad & happy faces here.} And Martha’s Vineyard, don’t think you’re off the hook, because I’ll be coming for you in less than two months. So be ready.
