2011 so far: Seattle skylines, circus tents, London shops and Paris

okay so not actually in person, but in books
it's official I have had my nose in a book the whole year
day 27 of the new year and I started my 4th book
that's a lot for me
i am a slow reader.
so far i have loved them all.

30 year old love story fanatic mormon girl finds loves in an unusual way.

So much more than circus life during the Great Depression.
 But I don't want to give anything away, just read it.
But warning you are going to want a pet elephant after.

As long as Sophie Kinsella writes about Becky Bloomwood I will read it.
I laughed the whole way though it.

I am only on page 19 but I have a feeling that I am going to like it.
Yes it is true that not a single one of these books is on "the list", i will get there. And I have crossed a few off "the list" The Other Boleyn girl:check, Pride and Prejudice:check, 1776:check, The hungry games series:check. And a few others off the list. check.check.check

I also need to add a few to the list off the top of my head: World War Z, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Uglies series, Son of a Witch, Frankenstein, finish Confessions of Georgia Nicholson books.... okay new list coming soon. Get your suggestions in now.

I need a book club.
Are there such thing as online book clubs?

lazzzy days are the best
monday was a lazy day. thank you federal holidays.
we got out new couches last weekend so naturally we used them to make a fort asap.

it's a very simple but very perfect fort, and I do not want to take it down.
we hung out in the fort monday having a picnic and watching movies. 
perfect day.

the 5 w's

my blog

when: made it in 2008
why: Cynda made me, she said now that I was engaged I HAD to have a blog
where: BYU-I library
who: Cynda and I made it
what: What, that is the big question, what is this blog about? It's partially for far away family and friends to keep up on our lives. But it is also part Whittney's random thoughts, travels, recipes, wish lists, movie reviews, personal book club, television shows, spiritual thoughts, story telling, pictures, food posts, june, a creative outlet which I mostly post all of that on my June blog now. Pretty much this blog is a big jumbled mess of Whittney. One thing I have not tried yet is a fashion post. I am thinking about it, I love clothes way too much. One of the bloggers I followed did a whole month of fashion posts. It was awesome. February is a shorter month maybe I will try it.

Buenos propositos de Ano Nuevo

An axiom we all understand is that you get what you pay for. That is true for spiritual matters as well. You get what you pay for in obedience, in faith in Jesus Christ, in diligent application of the truths you learn.

Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

new years resolutions:

spend more time on scripture study and my callings
cook heathly meals
read a book a month (januarys already done!)
visit somewhere I have never been (lifetime goal of at least one new place a year)
learn 100 new words in Spanish
