happy thursday!

I'm really behind on updating our NYC trip. I will get on that. For now some pictures of the beautiful buildings. I love all the buildings in the city especially these hidden ones.

In other news David just got accepted to go to New York with the school in November. He will get to go to even more ad agencies and show his portfolio off. Sadly I can't go and trust me I am extremely jealous! But I am so proud of him and all the work he puts in!

Beauty school is great, we are doing perms this and hair styling. I'm excited to move on from the perms and learn how to style! I love it more each day the school is so much fun it doesn't even feel like I'm going to school. I LOVE IT! now a cheesy picture of me

Happy Thursday!

some things.

This past week has flown by. Paul Mitchell is a lot of fun but it's also a lot of information in these first 6 weeks and I am very mentally tired at the end of the day. We are learning about color this week and it is confusing, interesting, exciting, and confusing. David is busy with school lot's of projects. I thought I would miss BYU-Idaho but I'm happy to say that I haven't and am glad to be where I am.

1. at the grocery store 2. David making me dinner before my first day at Paul Mitchell. 3. Cinnamon rolls for my 1st week completed. 4. Salmon dinner David was making in 2.

NYC day 3

Day 3 started with David taking his portfolio around to get reviewed by a huge advertising agency. While David was busy being amazing I went and picked out some lipstick :)
The agency was conveniently next to my favorite building in New York, the Flat Iron building. (where I also bought my lipstick) so if he got a job there we could live next to or even better IN my favorite building. There is also a shack shake in the park next to the flat iron, a farmer's market, and then just to make sure I was completely in love with this neighborhood a Whole Foods also resides close by.

Washington Square

Yoga Man
Little Italy

This was one of my favorite days in the city. We did a lot of wondering around just discovering little things about the city. We went to this amazing restaurant called Stand where they serve a pretty good burger for way cheap considering how nice it was. We found a vintage shop that was way over priced but helpful, and a finally got to go a lomo store where I almost bought a Diana.

The agency loved David, they gave him a lot of guidance as to what to do to become better and they really liked his stuff. It was kind of a relief to know that he could get a job here if he wanted.

Paul Mitchell

Today was my first day as a Future Professional
(as they call us) at the Paul Mitchell Hair Academy.

I've been thinking about this for a long time.
Over a year in fact.
In short I really feel like this is what I'm suppose to be doing at this time in my life.

So I applied for graduation received my Associates degree
and now am on way to becoming a Rock star Hairstylist.

I'm nervous, but excited, and can't wait to start learning!

Wish me luck!

also David is the perfect husband.

Last night he made me my favorite dinner.
This morning he left a trail of notes
to the car to calm my nerves.
and there was one in my pocket.
Then he bought me the fake flowers I have really been wanting for our home.
and then made me dinner again.
I am loved!

NYC day 2

Day 2 was Hot & Humid the two things I hate the most.

but that was nothing compared to the subways. It only got worse under there. Even though I'm smiling I'm feeling pretty yuck. The subways were one of my favorite things about the city though even if they were a sauna.
We ate at the Starlight cafe for breakfast.
The food was pretty good, and you got a lot for very little.

There were also a lot of locals to watch. I liked when we found places where there weren't a lot of tourist, and just people doing their everyday thing. It felt like I was seeing the city as it really was instead of as a movie.
Since it was hot we decided today would be the perfect day
to spend at the MOMA inside out of the heat.

David's favorite exhibit
when you walked into the room it sounded like a bunch of people talking. But as you walked through the speakers you could hear individuals repeating the days of the week. My favorite was the wishing tree.
We walked around 5th avenue again to see the Plaza, and the famous Apple Store.

For dinner we had the best pizza we've ever tasted.
It was so good, and we are pizza lover's so we know what we are talking about.
So good in fact we went back again later in the week.

After a really long day of walking around in the heat we stumbled onto columbus circle and rested our feet and then ate some Pink berry.

New York City

As everyone already knows (because it's all we talk about) our biggest dream is to move New York City after school. Since our very first date we've been talking about how much we would love to live there someday and hope we can go visit before then. As this year's 7 week break approached we seriously talked about going, but in the end decided not to or so I thought.

David surprised me with the Greatest surprise he could ever surprise me with for our anniversary. A 7 day trip to the city of our dreams. New York City!

* a side note before I begin. I got the shake it app on my phone and took a lot of pictures of our trip with it because sometimes it was more convenient then pulling out the camera. The morning after we got back from New York my phone froze and I had to wipe my phone. So a lot of pictures were lost and somethings I talk about will not have pictures. but that's ok there are still a ton from my point and shoot, David's phone and the canon.

Shortly after our arrival, waiting outside the airport for a Taxi to take us into the city.

We were so excited to finally be in the city that right after we checked into the hotel we ran straight to the nearest subway and headed for Times Square. I have no idea why we chose to go here first it was so crowded and way overwhelming. However it worked out great because there were a lot of things we wanted to see in that area that we just stumbled upon walking around. Which was the story for most of our trip.

Like I wanted to go to Magnolia Bakery and there it was only a couple of blocks away. Even if you don't like cupcakes you should go and sit in the store it's very beautiful.

I can't remember the name of the cupcake we got but it was banana and chocolate and it was delicious. When we ordered the sales girl was like are you sure you only want one? It was good but I didn't think it was that good.

Then we just sat, caught our breath for a minute, figured out what to do next, watched the people, and talked about how much we loved it.
Right next to Magnolia was Radio City Music hall.
Then we stumbled onto the Rockefeller Plaza. Which happened to have the most amazing J. Crew right next door along with the most amazing Anthropologie.

This was really funny we somehow ended back up in Times Square. I don't know how but it was perfect because we were able to experience it at night which is way better then during the day.
After that we strolled around 5th avenue, did some shopping, and looked around this beautiful cathedral.

We were a little nervous we weren't going to like New York, but that was ridiculous and after our 1/2 day decided it was the perfect place for us to live.

Happy Birthday Dad!

Today is my Dad's Special day!

We were in Austin close enough to today that we decided to celebrate early with my dad and throw him a surprise party filled with German Chocolate Cake Ice cream and a Balloon.

I love you Dad Hope your having a terrific Birthday!
