1. welcome home.

    Friday, July 29

    howdy. so i'm finally home! for good this time. not going anywhere until school starts in a month. but we're not thinking about that right now. {nor are we thinking about how hideous i am in this picture. i just wanted to show you that i am, in fact, still alive.}

    what we are thinking about is friday's top five! here goes nothin....

    1. caprese salad.

    um, yummy. so fresh and delicious and summery. i cut these delicious juicy tomatoes myself, ps. and did not lose any fingers in the process.

    2. sea lion kisses.

    did i mention that i got kissed by a sea lion in mexico? well. i did. her name was jenny. she smelled like fish. i also felt really really pale in mexico. like, more than usual.

    3. letters to juliet.

    hello, cutest movie ever. sure, it's completely predictable and stereotypical, but it's just so sweet you can't help but love it! plus it's in gorgeous tuscany. how can you resist a sweet love story in italy with amanda seyfried and that cutie with the britsh acccent and gelato? i love it. it made me cry.

    4. efy medley.

    i had the opportunity to go to efy two weeks ago, which, for those of you who don't know, is a week-long church camp for lds youth. i went to the byu provo session with my best friend from growing up in virginia. we had such a blast with everyone in our company, and we learned so much and felt the spirit strongly every single day. singing the efy medley, however, is always my favorite part. standing up and singing this with four hundred other young people who all believe the same things i do is such an incredible experience that never leaves me with a dry eye. if you've never heard it, please watch this video. watch it even if you have heard it and sung it! it's just so amazing. :)

    5. sweats.

    yes. i did just say that.

    no, i am not posting a picture.

    let's just say, i spent the majority of girls camp loving my brand new way-too-big ycl sweats and wearing them even when it was hot outside. or even when i wore them the day before.

    i call them my swagger pants.

    xoxo julia

    ps, i just realized that i never posted day two of mexico pictures. whoopsies. tomorrow perhaps?
