In A Safe Place

I can't believe it took me this long to download The Album Leaf...particularly, In A Safe Place. I've written down the name of this band several times. I kept hearing their music in random places.

I came across them, again, about month or two ago when watching a gorgeous yet tragic video of the Nashville floods (...from what I heard the video isn't nearly half as devastating as what damage was really done), but I couldn't help but write down their name again.

Well, I guess the final straw is when I began my first yoga class last week. I recognized the music right was the first thing I heard as I sat down on my mat. Immediately, it put me at ease, and I was ready to take in all I could from this experience. I knew I was about to fall in love. The peace of it all.

I can't wait to experience it again...I can't wait to lie in bed falling asleep to these sounds.

Little helper

Ask me why

Only have a few things to say (in which, afterwards, I'm sure you'll never want to read my lame blog again. However, I promise you, I will have more intriguing things in the near future).

I spent a lot of the last month kinda preparing
for my only brother's wedding this summer. My future sister-in-law's sister and I (with the help of all the other awesome bridesmaids) put together a bridal shower for the bride. It was really nerve wrecking to do something like this with having no experience at all, but I have to say it went really well. I was super happy with the results. Then, I've been spending a lot of time trying to find a bridesmaid dress (the bride is letting us pick out our own). Shockingly, I'm the last of seven to get a dress. Don't ask me h
ow it's taken me this long because, most certainly, I've known pretty much what I was looking for for almost exactly a year, now. Anyways, I still have a few kinks to work out with that area, so I'm not exactly done shopping just yet. Then, I've been helping my mom with a few crafts for the soiree. details to give out on that just yet, but I'm sure I will explain everything from start to finish come the time of wedding.

Pics from the shower:

(5 of the 7 bridesmaids...the bride is the one next to me, third from right. I look like a little midget and freak of nature, so you best bet I'll be wearing some good heels for the wedding day.)

Anyways, memorial weekend came around and what that means to me is basically the annual festivities at the Parker residence is Massachusetts. I was sad at first cause I thought I was going to miss it, but I have a great boyfriend and he found a way for me to reunite with all of my friends. We played the best game of "Psychiatrist" which I can't really explain if I ever want to play this game again, but just take my word for it: It was awesome! Yay for Sam being so awesome, and thank you to Gabbers for timing the hour and a half it took us to play. Besides that we played a game of wiffle ball which, somehow, Jesse guilt Amber and I into playing (we were celebrating his birthday, how could we say no?). Team Bacon is what Erica dubbed us (the winning team). Then we played some badminton. Tyler and I whooped Adam and Amber's boooo-tay! I missed out on the bocce and the bag toss thing, but how much could I possibly handle in one day? The rest of them had all weekend long, and I had one day to cram it all in.

Ok, then, earlier this week, I went to see the screening of The Next Karate Kid with my mama, and despite all your giggles I can hear out there, I thought it was pretty good! Maybe it's just me and the fact that I grew up on Mr. Miyagi and The Karate Kid, but I was really into it. I mean, it's no box office hit, but I fully enjoyed it. And the star is the spawn of Will could I not like this film? You may not wanna spend your money going to the theater to see it, but I think it's netflix-able. I already have a crush on little Jaden.

I have a lot going on in the next month, but one thing in particular is the release of my boyfriend's band's debut full-length album. June 22nd. A Great Big Pile Of Leaves. Be ready.

K, thanks. I'm off to read the stupid Eclipse book from the Twilight saga. I don't even know why I bother anymore cause all I wanna do is just get it over with once I start. I can't not finish something I've started. I gotta do it, so I'm sucking it up.

Gnight y'all.
