One Lovely Blog Tag






Well, we've been tagged, twice in fact, and it's about time we did another post. Sorry we're so sporadic about this. But to make it up to you, we're going to do facts about these past couple weeks we've been AWOL. 

So, thank you, Keturah and Clara, and away we go!





Rules
1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you.
2. Posts seven facts about yourself.
3. Nominate 15 bloggers of your own. 

Seven Fourteen (double tagged = double the facts...if we can come up with that many) facts:

1) Becca invested in some Christmas lights to brighten up our room. (pun intended)


2) Saturdays are laundry days, and to save the 75 cents to use the dryer, we use a clothesline! It makes walking about the room a little difficult, but all that ducking and crouching is good exercise. :)


3) Our friend Jon uploaded this song to his youtube channel a couple weeks ago. It has such a fun melody!


 
4) The week before last was midterms, and to cheer up the last day of tests, us and group of friends wore leaf "ears" in our hair. It made one of our friends look like Mr Tumnus, and one of the teachers thought that too and said it looked like we should go dance in the moonlight. 

5) Last week we had special lectures, and we thought we would have lots of extra free time... but we didn't.

6) But everyone still wanted to do fun things, so a few of the dorm sections went out to a nearby canyon and played a game called beckon. It was a fun mix of hide-and-seek and cops and robbers. 

7) The night before we made cookie bars (using my chocolate chip cookie recipe) to bring along, and one of the guys who doesn't usually like cookies thought they were pretty good!


8) Want to know how to hang up a felt pennant without tacks or nails? Sticky tack and binder clips! After getting tired of tape coming unstuck, I macgyvered this solution. :)

                            



9) This weekend the school gave us Monday off. Most of the students took advantage of the long week to visit friends and family, and the campus felt like a ghost town. 

10) This is a really fun cover of "Martha My Dear" we found this week.

11) There aren't too many trees out here, but the ones we do have changed to some lovely autumn colors. Becca snapped a few picture before the trees dropped all the leaves. 



12) I've been finding some pretty cool rocks. :)


This one has crystal formations inside, and layers of this translucent type of rock.
                            
 This is a kind of banded jasper, but I haven't been able to find any pictures quite like it online.

13) Sunday afternoon we got to play with a (very very cute and feisty) puppy and watch a movie.


14) We're finding hard to believe there's only two months of school left! 



If you're reading this, consider yourself tagged! Or, just let us know what you've been up to in the comments.
                                                                             
So long!

  1. Congratulations on the tag! I love that you hang your laundry up in your room to dry. So thrifty! Those fall colored leaved and unusual rocks are both beautiful!

    1. Thanks!
      That was a tip a friend gave us last semester, so when we got a room together, we were excited to try it.
