my week away

My week with Jantz was the best. but pretty much every week with him is the greatest week ever. I only got pictures of the last half while we were in Colorado.

I made oreo truffles. 
jantz even helped, and his turned out the best  
(i've accepted that, even though i LOVE baking, and i'd like to think it's my specialty, that boy can cook, end of story)

i may have gotten some on his face 
(and he didn't even retaliate. wtf right? haha. he'll get me back, don't worry)

driving to the Rockies game. i like watching him drive.

we got sweet awesome seats (5 rows back from 3rd plate). 
Ubaldo was pitching, our fave!

sometimes he makes special faces in pictures

and sometimes i do.

on sunday after his amazing talk in church. 
(ps, i bought him that tie in florence)

him and his sister were making these faces the whole trip! 
our last day we went to lunch at On the Border (and got our meal for free, woot).

my favorite picture of us. 
loved the trip.
love him :)

There is a guy at my work that looks exactly like how Pedro will look in ten years. 

I'm not sure if i should think it's weird or awesome.
probably both.

I had a blog full of pictures all ready to post about my week out of town (which was the BEST), but then by some awesome happening, i erased all the pictures. poopy i know. so until i upload them all again, i'll give you this picture that jantz and his artistic skills created (well, i took the picture, he just awesome-ified it)

i think we're pretty awesome 
(in case you couldn't tell)

i'm sure you're all well aware of the very large picture of a cow on my blog :) i've thought about it for a while and i think maybe i should replace it with something a little less, "in your face".

I don't really know why there is a cow there in the first place, other than i used to really like cows (also for reasons unknown) and somehow it just stuck. I've been trying to think of how the cow (and my title) really makes any sense at all. And I think I've come up with a pretty "sense" making reason.

Cows go moo. there are millions of cows in the world. they all look the same. they all eat the same thing. they all make the same noise. kind of like humans you think? i'm just one in all those millions who's trying to be heard. I'm just "mooing", if you will (that sounds real special haha).

convinced? i won't be offended if you're not. i feel like i've changed the name and look of my blog so many times that i need to just stick to one. Any suggestions on a new title? A new image? if you've got a good one i might just take the plunge and redo things even more :)

one week of school = one week of vacation. sounds about right

This week has seriously flown by. Holy cow. I've had a few breakdowns this week, but after many talks and much complaining to the amazing people in my life (aka mom, boyfriend, roomies), I finally feel a little bit better about things. I think maybe, just maybe, I can make it. Grad school may take me to the edge of insanity, but when I'm done it will be so worth it (at least I hope so....haha)

On another note, I'm super excited that it's Friday. I get to pick Jantz and his fam up from the airport tonight and then spend the whole week with them. They leave on Thursday, but, I get to fly back with them and spend next weekend out there! yay!

I would pretty much be ok if the weekend never ended. so pray that this week goes by super slow for me :)

Song-of-the-Week: The Only Exception by Paramore. All you need is one person to change all your ideas and rules about love.

P.S. Impromptu Painting-of-the-Week:
death of the virgin by Caravaggio
such a spectacular painting. i stood in front of it for so long. just marveling at its beauty. 
it's SO different in person (so go see it :). and love it.
