So, my friends:
After going (over) a month without making a blog post, I decided to kind of make it up to you by loosely recapping what this past year's been like.
Enjoy as much as humanly possible!
I hosted a kick-butt tea party for small children in February with my bestest friend:
|Ring Pops and Little Debbies.... ooooooo|
I spent a good portion of my spring break wallowing in self-pity, but another portion I spent frolicking around my beloved city of St. Louis:
|Much wow. Such professional-looking.|
|I got to pet(?) stingrays! And was flinching!|
|This was taken on the day when I decided that naked mole rats were my favorite animal.|
|I visited my very favorite college town, University of Missouri in Columbia.|
|I found the most beautiful rug at a local flea market.|
|I made my own mac n' cheese! |
In other news, shredded cheese is extremely hard to melt.
|Purple cookie cake!|
Made by yours truly.
I took a trip to Colorado Springs, CO and experienced many emotions:
|This was only kind of terrifying.|
|This made me feel distinguished - I could successfully tell a cow from a bear .|
|To the top of Pike's Peak!|
I AM AN ADVENTURE-ER!
|It's the peak!|
|Sometimes, when you're out in the "wilderness", you feel as if a bear might attack you at any second.|
|"Awwwww momma look how cute it is! Can I go in and pet it?"|
"Do you want to go home decapitated?"
(The conversation that happened every 10 minutes while at the Wolf Sanctuary)
In the fall, I did the usual activities:
|Went apple picking, but the only worthy thing that came out of it was this adorable kitten that I almost stuffed into my camera bag. *sigh* If only I wasn't allergic...|
|I validated myself as I normal human being and went to Homecoming (!!!!)|
|See? Proof that I, Mary, have friends.|
|Tailgating at Mizzou!|
Activities include: egg making and walking (loitering) around Greek Town.
|Cue the collective ooooh's and ahhhhhh's!|
|Being a carrot for Halloween seemed like the only right idea.|
Random tidbit: Loretta (the cat that hates me) stayed over a few times.
May or may not have been my phone's wallpaper for a good amount of time.
|I also (forcefully) made myself the foster mother of a few rabbits.|
I think this was the most terrifying event of 2014:
The One Direction concert (thanks, Gpa for tickets!):
|So many screaming teenage girls. Such thin eardrums.|
