iPhoto diaries-life as of lately


Just reliving my life via my phone! This blog was created to remember memories so I want to start just having random iphone photo posts to remember the random memories I have :)





 
My twin brother came to town and stayed with us! Our guest room gets used like 1%  of the time  so I was glad he got to take advantage of it. Plus it's always fun to have Craig in town :) He goes to school up at BYU in Idaho so Idaho ladies, get at him. ps- he's also basically 1 foot taller than me. I'm just glad he got the height cause if I was 6'1" clearly that would be wack.
 
My dad has been randomly sending old pictures and this is HIM!! He was such a cutie!! haha I can't believe how young he was in this picture. So crazy to me.
 
 
So I was being a sensitive girl (one of my top qualities) and I think I said something mean to Jason and felt bad and started to cry. And then I thought it was funny because my tear washed away my spray tan and left a streak on my face. if you have a microscope you can see the streak right by the brown freckle.
 
My old roomie, Kelsey, got engaged!!!!!!!!!!! She is getting married a day after my anniversary and I can't wait! So my best, Shaney, got married August 1st, 2013, I got married August 7th, 2014, and Kels is getting married August 8th, 2015! We were meant to be friends. Also why are my eyes black and beady? couldn't tell ya.
 
 
My wonderful Grandpa passed away 2 weeks ago and it was really sad going through all of his stuff but also really happy because I got to see things I haven't seen before and learn even more about how amazing he was! This was his dog tag from WWII. how cool is that?!!
 
 
K so people at my work have meetings allll the time and so usually they order lunch into the meeting. and usually there is leftovers! So there was a miscommunication and long story short, lunch got ordered on the wrong day so there was seriously so much food and I took home a bag of pitas from pita junglefor J and me.

 
There's these gorgeous trees that shed these flowers! They are alllllll over the ground outside my work and I keep imagining a photoshoot where I throw them all up in the air and look all vogue or something. but obviously that isn't going to happen so I snapped this instead.
 
 
hahah selfie attempt. well hair selfie. I've been so obsessed with adding a braid to my hair lately. I found this girl named Kirsten Zellers on instagram and she is my inspiration! her hair is PERFECT.
 
 
literally my second home. signs have kept us busy and I keep lowes in business. your're welcome, lowes! (and thank you!!)
 
 
K my niece is seriously so cute. just ignore me in that picture and focus on her. she's seriously so dang cute and I love her!

 
I got these Nars lip pencils from spehora and I was nervous about the red because 1) I have never worn red lipstick ever in my entire life. and 2) and I quote "I don't like when girls wear red lipstick"- Jason. But yeah curiosity killed me and I tried it and I LOVE IT. and Jason liked it and I eventually convinced him to kiss me when I was wearing it haha (that's a BIG deal)
 
until next time!

  1. I'm glad you got to spend time with your brother! I usually don't do red lipstick either, but occasionally I will get brave and try it! Haha. I just feel like I look funny with red lips. I love the look on you!

  2. So sorry about your Grandpa :( My one bestfriend is getting married June 19th 2015 and then my other best friend is getting married June 18th 2016. Haha so weird! And I'm in both weddings so it's like I know how I'm spending May and June for this year and next year... all wedding things haha.

  3. Great pictures! I'm weirded out about wearing lipstick. I have some and whenever I wear it I just feel like people will KNOW I don't normally wear it and think it's weird. Obviously I'm the only one who knows it and the strangers on the street think nothing of it. I need to get over that!

    1. Thank you, Mattie!! haha I totally feel that way about lipstick and I'm constantly checking it to make sure it didn't smudge weird or something. I love the nars pencils because they like dry on your lips and don't smudge. basically saved my life haha

  4. I wish I was brave enough to try red lipstick! My lips are so full so I feel like it would bring too much attention to them on my face. I'm just chicken ha! Yours looks gorge!

  5. Such fun pictures, lady! I love doing iphone posts and reading them is just as much fun. I'm so sorry about your grandfather. I lost my grandmother in 2006 and it still hurts. <3 to you!

    1. thank you!! I totally agree! I love documenting my real life and reading others real life posts. I guess iphone pictures means real life to me haha because they are like "behind the scenes" and not taken with a fancy camera. I'm sorry about your grandmother! It is hard but I just try to focus that he is in a better place and he is watching down on me.

  6. I'm really sorry about your grandpa, I lost mine in 2002 and I still miss him, I wish he could have met Kyle. On another note I think it's crazy how your grandpa's name was Frank J. so was mine! What a coincidence. I think your hair looks great in those two pics, I can't do those types of braids to save my life, mine always look like they've gone on a serious diet or something.

    1. thank you so much, Liz! that means so much!! And I'm sorry you lost your grandpa a few years ago, too :( That's how I feel! I wish he could have met my future children and that they could meet such a perfect man. and that is really crazy our grandpas have the same name!! I bet they're laughing about that in heaven right now :)

      for the braids to make them appear full is totally an illusion! ahh i wish i could explain it but you basically just pull each piece out a little and it gives the illusion that you have this full thick braid. if I didn't do that my braids would all look anorexic haha

  7. sorry about your grandpa, but that is so lovely to be able to go through his things. my grandpa died before i was born and my nana got rid of a lot of his stuff so i would love to go through things and see who he was.

  8. I'm sorry to hear about your grandpa, too. I lost mine in April and I know how incredibly hard it is. We've went through a lot of old photos, but my Grandma hasn't been quite ready to go through some of his things yet, which I understand completely. I do look forward to doing that soon though, I want his memory to live on forever! :)

    On a less sad note- you are gorgeous, friend! Your hair, makeup- you are stylin! I'm going to follow your hair girl on IG but I think YOU are my inspiration!

    1. thank you so much and I am so sorry, too!! We are going through the same thing and it's always nice to be able to really understand what someone is going through so I am so sorry, too! awh your poor grandma! My grandpa has Alzheimer's disease so she doesn't really even realize she has a husband. You will love going through stuff when your grandma is ready! You learn so much!!

      and oh my gosh THANK YOU! you are so nice!!! you will love Kristen, she is gorgeous!

  11. I love these posts because it's really the normal things in life that I like to know about people. Like for instance that you cry, becauseI CRY! A LOT! Like daily, haha so good to know. And I love the old picture of your Dad..I hoard old family photos because I just think it's like amazing that my parents had a life before I knew them. And so sorry about your Grandfather. I went through that last year, it is hard, especially if you were close. And now some questions - where did you get those brown and black sandals?? And that dress you're wearing at Lowe's? YOU WOULD look adorable shopping at Lowes lol.

      and thank you so much!! we were pretty close but I know he is at least healthy and doing great in heaven!! K so I got the shoes at target , I was looking for a link to give you but apparently they don't sell them anymore! they were literally on the site last week. so weird. and the dress is from lularoe! http://www.lularoe.com/ I am obsessed. they don't have much variety online but people have lularoe parties and there's like a million things to pick from! haha Jason thought I was crazy wearing it to lowes but I refused to take it off.

  17. Those red lips are fierce in the best way! Love! And that photo of you at Lowes is hysterical. I was making a DIY headboard and was that girl in Lowes with a HUGe haul of various wood, trying to load it all into my SUV.

    Cheers!
