Santa Monica Pier

It's strange to think that while my family back home is being inundated with snow, I am out here wearing t-shirts...
It gets cold in the mornings and evenings, but during the day it can get pretty hot.

The other week we had an activity to the Santa Monica Pier. I made sure to get a few pictures for my blog.

It was nice....and very relaxing out on the beach. I am looking forward to WINTER though and I can't wait to be home for Christmas break! Only 44 days left! :)

One mans trash is another mans treasure.

One man's trash is another mans treasure.

The other day I was walking back to my dorm after late class and I noticed that the maintenance guys were cutting back the rose bushes. All of the white flowers were chopped off and in the trashcans. So I stopped and asked one of the guys if I could pick a flower out of the trash. They looked shocked and said "Sure." Then they helped me look through the trash for the nicest flowers.

I put them in water from a cut in half sprite bottle and now today (two days later), the buds are blooming! :)

Strange how something so little can totally make my day brighter... :)

It's almost scary... I thought something seemed different about it, and when I compared these pictures I thought...maybe they put something in the water here.

This picture is from last fall at college.

And this fall at college:

This is a really random post, I just thought that was so weird...

haha... until later!

Martha and Daniel's wedding

I was able to fly home last weekend for Martha and Daniel's wedding. I don't have a very long time before class, but I wanted to at least put up some pictures from the wedding.

The happy couple

Hungry hungry people.... haha!

Bridal party

I wasn't able to take many pictures since I was in the bridal party. It was a beautiful wedding and I was so happy I was able to go home for it!

Only 64 days left until Christmas break!
