it's monday.

it's monday -- blah! -- and here are some things i have been thinking about.

1.) one of the 15-year-old girls i teach at church, kylee [who, incidentally, recently started a quite stellar blog] makes me laugh. last week we were talking about her new boyfriend and she called him "man candy." this conversation ensued:
me: why do you call him man candy?
k: because boyfriend sounds too weird.
me: how about "BF"?
k: no. i try to refrain from abbreviating words outside of texting.
i still laugh when i think about that. oh, kids these days... [and yes, i text her during the week to communicate. that's just how we roll i guess.]

2.) LAist did a cool story about the 70th birthday of union station, with amazing pictures. i love that place and admire it daily as i walk through; thought these images did a great job of capturing it. [apparently it's been in lots of movies but the only one i can think of off the top of my head is pearl harbor.]
here are a few of my favorite pictures from the story:

3.) we had quite a nice weekend. we cleaned the house, watched movies, made some cards, ran some errands. we FINALLY grocery shopped. but on saturday morning i had a mini-breakdown because we had a completely unstructured day. the only thing i HAD to do that day was show up at souplantation for dinner at 5 p.m. to meet our at 9 a.m. i freaked out, sat on the floor and told b we NEEDED to plan our day. i don't do well when i'm not planned out. b looked at me like i was nuts, told me it would be okay, and left to help some friends move a piano. i cried a little, got up and ran three miles and then felt better. maybe i am crazy.

4.) i wrote a guest post for gypsy feet, a random blog all about feet. my least favorite subject. so they humored me and told me to write about how much i despise feet :) check it out here.

You crack me up, Lyndsey! Your post at gypsy feet is hilarious. While I do enjoy a good pedicure, I agree - feet are gross.

Fun guest blogging! I love the pictures you chose.

And Kylie is too adorable. She makes me laugh too.

Glad you had a Saturday morning cry and run. Those are both good things.

You should write a monthly verbbage on the feet blog. It was fun to read--you are so gifted.

Hey Lyndsey!

I just got home from the Huntington Botanical Gardens where a ton of us girls saw you with your husband. I want to apologize for being so out of it! All day long I kept thinking, "She looks so familiar, I swear I know her from somewhere!" But I couldn't place it and I didn't say anything. I think you even said "I used to be in your ward" and one time, but I was thinking Pacific Palisades, and couldn't think of when. Then I got preoccupied with Jack wanting to crawl into the pond and you were gone before I could talk to you again. Walking to the car after visiting the gardens I BYU ward?! So here is this LONG and drawn-out comment wondering if thats where I knew you. The Avenues? Thats pretty crazy! And!! if I'm way off, thats crazy and I'm sorry too :)
