a week in bullets

this has been a busy week, but i don't really want to write a huge post now, so here's a quick update.
  • wednesday was my final--at 7am. it was early, but donuts and the fallon/colbert "friday" lifted our spirits a little. 
  • on thursday i went to park city for nassr. it was fun to go to a real, big time conference and see what it is like to hobnob with some star scholars. and i went to a panel called "austen's social media." awesome. 
  • friday we met up with carolyn and rosie for lunch and a movie in draper. zupas was delicious as usual, and the help was pretty great. i love emma stone, and i really, really want this dress. 
  •  after the movie we three went to ikea, where i found more things that i adore: a new rug, a lamp for the living room, more napkins, and a lovely toile closet organizer. all in all a successful and satisfying day. and that night we went to pei wei and played nerts until we couldn't stand it.
  • saturday we slept in and then went back to park city to shop at the outlets. i love the outlets. never a disappointment. except, there were a ton of people there, which put mom in a bad mood pretty quick. still fun though. 
  • yesterday we had a lesson on the law of chastity that didn't prompt any disgruntled feelings. and we played nerts again and watched the singles ward, which is always good for a few laughs, especially at the early-aughts-era clothes (look at this shirt--red sateen with metallic flames? yikes.).
  • then, today, i woke up when bergen was calling me to come eat crepes. so i did. nutella, cinnamon sugar, whipped cream, peanut butter--a great way to start the day. 
so there you have it. a week filled with family, food, and flibbertigibbets. okay, not really that last thing, but i just saw it on and wanted to use it.
