What About?

Random title but I thought I would share this:
I have a love for vinyl lettering.
I cannot wait until I can decorate a home with it.
And this site makes me happy.
Also I am dying to update my wardrobe.
I am on  kick of wanting cute cardigans and light jackets 
so keep your eyes open for deals for me ok? Ok super!

p.s. Mom, I need to finish my vinyl project for my room. Remind me. :)

p.p.s. random quote from that site:

The adventure of life is to learn
the goal of life is to grow
the nature of life is to chance
the challenge of life is to overcome
the essence of life is to care
the secret of life is to dare
the beauty of life is to give
the joy of life is to love.

Few Things Feel Better

Than an amazing week.

A great weekend.

Listening to the prophets and other inspired general authorities

Obtaining knowledge.

And it continuing. . .

And what helps it continue? Finding this video.
All I can say is wow, that is truth. I love it.

That Little Thought . . .

You know? The one where have a last minute thought to take something else with as you head out your door.
I had that this morning. About my camera. But I thoroughly thought it through I didn't need it today so I left it home.
Alas I found I was wrong as I also found out that today was the tractor parade for ag days. (which I personally think is a way cool tradition)
So as I was making my way to work I actually got to see most of it.
And I wanted a picture because,
1. How many campuses have tractor parades down the main campus road
2. There were big tractors, little tractors, all new and shiny
3. It just made me happy.

PLUS I got a free t-shirt thrown at me.

Although I cannot explain exactly why I can tell you that the last few days have been genuinely GREAT. People ask the cliche, "how are you?" and I can say "great!" with a huge smile on my face and it just makes me happier because it is so true.

So here's to more days like this.
And to YOU having some.

p.s. I am seeing Scarlet Pimpernel again tomorrow.

Out Netting Butterflies

Oh the blessed quotes that have come from The Scarlet Pimpernel.

I love that book (as far as I have read anyway)
I love the movie
and I LOVE the musical.
 I attended it this Saturday and I couldn't get it out of my head.
The songs.
The parts that make you laugh.
The storyline.
The unforgettable characters 
(one of the greatest hero of ALL time to me).
This is the second time I watched it and talk about phenomenal.
The Logan Cast is hysterical, moving, and TALENTED.

Holy bologna.
Just look at the costumes . . . and does that NOT look like Marguerite? 
I highly, highLY, HIGHLY recommend seeing it ANYTIME it is near you.
I could go on and on but I will stop here.

p.s. it's still playing this week at the Ellen Eccles Theater so you should go . . . I think I am going again though so just don't steal my seat, ok?

p.p.s. Also my friend Nick is in it as Lord Anthony Dewhurst. 
Awesome is all I need to say. 

p.p.s. I just noticed this post was published barely shy of 11:11. :)

This experience gave me chills . . .

 . . .or maybe that was the temperature of the room but nevertheless the experience can be found here: kend's blog.

Currently I am not sure what is happening on my own facebook.

Luckily I trust kendra lots.
(remember this kendra, remember my trust of you)

and i didn't copy her outfit. or did i?

Observation of late.

I am sitting here enjoying a delicious snack of Wheat Thins and noticed
There are HOLES in the crackers. 
All over.
With my great expertise I am sure this is so that there is prevention of air bubbles while baking the crackers but I have never noticed before . . .

Have you?

Calorie Free?

If your chocolate covered cinamon bears don't have any nutrition facts on them does it mean it's completely fine to eat all of them?
I hope so.

(p.s. as a nutrition science major I feel I must make a disclaimer: all foods have calories whether stated or not and it's always good to eat in moderation).

Have you heard it?

Michael released a new one.

I must say I quite like it and it's message.

Yesterday morning I thought to myself,

"Heidi, you have a test on Wednesday and a five page paper due Tuesday morning at seven-thirty . . . WHEN are you going to get these done amidst class, work, and research?"

Well . . . I guess we'll see huh?

On a greater note than already being somewhat behind in school,
Yesterday was a superb Sunday.
Church was super uplifting.
Everything was great but one thing I want to share is this:
The talks were on agency.
It's amazing isn't it?
And one guy took it on the angle of acting or being acted upon
But not quite how Elder Bednar did it.
He compared how Nephi acted while Laman and Lemuel allowed their lack of action to result in missing answers and murmurings and being mad at those around them and not learning from their experiences.
We are acted upon when we let things bother us.
When we let ourselves be frustrated.
When we don't seek for understanding that we desire to have.

Oh and then there was the CES Fireside by Elder Scott.
I think everyone can learn something from it
and if you chose not to you will probably laugh at some things.
 Have a great week! :)

Laborious Day

It was glorious!

I didn't do a whole lot but I did get to go and visit my fam.
Michelle came too.

We watched dad and Princess play ball . . .
Or swing-the-dog-around-on-the-ball-thrower when she grabbed hold of.

We went out on the four-wheeler and saw this
and this
and found it does this to you
and this
and wow aren't we lovely?
Life is still good.

Oh my dear sweet semester.

Autumn has arrived . . . weather-wise anyway and I am loving it. (although it could stay a little warmer)

I LOVE it so much! 
My classes are amazing and I love just learning the material.

However English = writers block right now
which is why I am blogging.
Apparently I can tell you things I have already told you in one form or another but I cannot write about memories and their connection to the word "water."

I'll figure it out.
Have a great weekend!

Got milk?

For any of you who have ever wondered . . .
Cap'n Crunch Berries

are NOT something good when inhaled.

1. Spaghetti Sauce.
I made some last night and quite liked it.
And I am not sure what I put in it.
I guess that'll be an adventure everytime I make more.

2. Twins.
Apparently I have one on campus.
Same backpack and everything.
My friends have been seeing her for years
and let me tell you - it makes for some great stories.

I kind of wish I heard her side of the crazy people that scream my name excitedly at her until she is close enough for them to realize that she is not actually Heidi Savage.

I think I want to meet her. Or see her.

3. Classes are AWESOME.
I am definitely in the right area of learning.
Nutrition is amazing.

4. Research.
I was offered an opportunity to become more involved with a project I am helping with,
My name may even appear on a paper.
