Things I Love Monday

In keeping with being a poor blogger, I'm doing a "Things I Love Thursday"-style post on Monday. I have free time at school on Mondays, though. So. That's what.  Here are some things I've loved lately: 

  1. Over dyed oriental rugs: Clover showed these to me a few weekends ago, and I've loved them! Basically, you dye an old oriental rug a bright color. I now want one very badly. Oh well. Somehow I'll manage without one. :) 
  2. "Royals" covers. They're just good! First, the original. The first time I heard this song, I was driving to Burlington to go to the doctors. It played 4 times. Nowhere near as much as Roar, which played, in all honesty, a whopping 14 times. But 4 is still enough to get me to notice it.  Then, Justin found this bluegrass cover. So good. And THEN he found this version by a really tall clown who is creepy but can sing really well.  He's weird. Just don't watch the video. Anyway, good songs, in my opinion.  
  3. The road trip I went on with Cody. The funnest thing ever.

Flowers! That's pretty self-explanatory. They're just pretty. My pinterest is chock full of flowers lately.  Whoops. 

And lastly: I just found a whole post of photos from July that never got published. So here are pictures of July! 

Awesome sunset! 

I made jam on day, and decided I had to take pictures of it, since it was so ridiculously red and summery. 


Some of Tori's flowers.

And it's now wintery, not summery. It's weird to look at pictures of flowers outside the house. Now there's just dead stalks and snow. But I still kind of love it, even if everyone thinks it's weird.  :) And that's what I love today!

Blog Circle: Night

 The theme for this month's blog circle is night.  I was going to do more star pictures, but when I was on the road trip with Cody, I saw a lot of sunsets and sunrises, and had a lot of fun nights! I also got to meet Lisa and Tessa, who are a part of this blog circle! Between hanging out at Lerwick's, going to Laramie, driving across Nebraska, sleeping in the El Camino in Vermillion (and the Upper Peninsula, and Canada,) staying with Forsbergs with JoAnna, seeing folks in Fargo, playing games in MN, and lots of driving, nights were pretty fun!

The first night, we went out to pick up some cows and bring them to the pivots in Nebraska. So awesome!

 Gorgeous sunset!

I finally got to ride in a semi!
