part of me hopes my mother doesn't read this.

i'm pretty darn sure of what i'm getting for my next tattoo.
it's gonna be beautiful.
i may have ripped off one of my long-time friends by stealing the inspiration she used for her first tattoo,
but i have a feeling she won't mind. 
i refuse to disclose any further details,
if you happen to follow me on pinterest you might get a little teaser.
in the meantime, i'll give you a hint.
(a.k.a. the inspiration.)
-Psalm 118:5-
"In my anguish I cried to the Lord, and he answered by setting me free."

because i'm egotistical like that.

you will notice some pretty sassy photos of myself in the heading.
yeah.. i know i look good.

and just for your liking,
i have one or two more photos i'd like to share:
this here is my dear friend cade.
i don't believe i've ever mentioned cade on the bloggity,
but we have recently become quite close.
this is us at the Bright Eyes concert :)
i do love him!
this is katie :)
she was my baking assistant at one point in time on the bloggity.
it was her birthday yesterday :)
and i know your ears are longing to hear something truly lovely,
so don't worry.
i've provided that little something that will surely vibrate your tympanic membrane.
(part of your inner ear.. get your mind out of the gutter.)

i'm currently working my way through learning this by ear on le piano,
because as it turns out,
you can't purchase the sheet music in this country..

it's a bitch,
but ain't it a beauty?

the power went out tonight.

so now i live in an apartment. 
it's a good time.
except for the fact that you could say my room,
which really isn't a room,
is actually a sauna.
lucky for me they make fans for that sort of thing.

and just in case you were wondering,
i've noticed that this kitchen hasn't experienced the baking sensation yet.
i'll be getting on that shortly.

hello fall semester!
i start school again tomorrow.
college round two.
this is how i feel about it.

on a brighter note, 
this is my new backpack!
no more insults from random college-goers.
i have a feeling this backpack might improve my self-esteem,
not destroy it.

one more thing.
the other day, this girl took some pictures of me.
my oh my.
she's a lovely lady and boy, is she talented.
follow miss alex saxton's photography blog here and set up an appointment.
i know she would just love to take your picture.

just thought i'd show off.

my latest baking experiments were a complete success.
this is what i like to call show and tell time.
creamy caprese pasta.
you could say this was a hit.
and these babies?
peach cupcakes with brown sugar-cream cheese frosting.
hellz yeah.

i wish i could say i can completely take credit for both of these insanely delicious recipes,
but alas,
i cannot.
however, if interested, you can find them
here & here.
i seriously recommend giving these suckers a shot.
i found them well worth the long hours in la cocina.
(aka. the kitchen.)
-brushing up on espanol via blog post is never a bad idea in my opinion-

now for the juicy bid-ness.
as mentioned a few previous posts ago,
i made a comment about a certain thing involving something along the lines of a man.
and i realize i promised updates.
so as promised,
update #1: ?

i think that about covers it.
