Smoothness is not my husband... and SF is the bomb

If you are ever trying to get away with something, maybe dont choose my husband.

Driving across the CA border:
Man: Where you headed?
Z: Um, no
Man: No what?
Z: Oh, I thought you asked if we had fruit.
Man: I asked where you were headed, could you open your trunk for me sir?

No dead bodies, which might surprise you after hearing this conversation.
but we were smuggling fruit across the border.
i bet you'd never guess.

me, marcus and michelle probably laughed for 5 min straight after this incident.
poor zach, just so hard for him to lie.

we left for sf bright and early.
530 am to be exact.
and we started out the trip with donuts.
and they were gooood.
awesome idea marcus.

we're liz and zach.
and sometimes we're hat people.
and sometimes we're not.
this day we were.

Oh the bread bowls.
to die for.
and dad, i walked on the left side of the street this time... and i ate crab... i must really be growing up.

you bet we went to the full house house.
and loved every minute of it.
especially zach, who still dvr's the blessed full house episodes.
i know you guys.
this is all i wanted.
the whole trip.
and it was the best 9 bucks I've ever spent.

Michelle's new rule: dont sing the song if you dont know the words.
this rule was made because marcus loves singing to songs, but he only knows 3 words to most songs.
and we were in the car A LOT

the man cave aka robs apt in san jose.
alex, zach and their friends do this 49ers monday night football game trip every year, and im sorry but i wasnt missing out this year.
not so much (at all) on the game, but on the trip to sf.
so sorry boys... alex...
I got michelle to come too so we could do our girl thing while they do their guy thing.
and it was perfect.
and hopefully michelle and marcus still want to be friends after driving 20 hours in one weekend with us

rob gave us the great idea of going to carmel and walking the streets.
it is the cutest town full of fun sidewalk shops and a nice beach.
and me and michelle took full advantage of it and it was a darling town.
and, when your married to marcus and zach, you also drive around for 2 hours searching for the homes of the people on "Trouble on the Hill" a Dateline special.
and yes, it really was 2 hours.
maybe more.

Marcus's conversation with a 17-year-old local boy:
M: Have you heard of trouble on the hill?
Boy: um, no
M: It's this dateline special about these 2 neighbors who get in this fight. They live somewhere around here.
Boy: I dont really watch the news
M: Did you hear about it though, one of them got killed. It was this big story. And we're trying to find their house.
Boy: Yeah... I dont know, ive never heard of it. sorry man.

Ya its fine buddy, its kind of creepy we were trying to find their house anyways.
and, your 17.
its not actually the news.
but still.

These 2 boys love each other.
their best friends, and really they think each other is the best thing ever.
i really dont think these 2 would ever get sick of each other. which is amazing considering me and michelle were about done with both of them come gametime and were very willing to drop them off at the stadium to tailgate for 5 hours before the game.

and then it was this boys bday.
and we went to cheesecake factory, my favorite.
i dont know how this happened.
but i was fine with it.

where next?
we're there...
Trish's donuts.
and we also went to Happy Donuts.
which was amazing.
and lately im in love.

A beautiful wedding... and the state fair

What would we do without our slothy p and pretty cait.
these two are always up for anything.
and always having fun.
literally since the day i met them.
and I think its fabulous.

sloth and me became instant friends, after he found out 1. how strong i was (used to be) and 2. that my last name was rock (good thing we met 2 years ago).
and caitlin was no different.
after the first time i met cait, she would run and jump on the couch with me and zach and want to play with us.
and she never cared that i was young, or kind of shy, or always wearing sweats, or anything, she wanted to be best friends, like she is with everyone.
and i loved it.
and i love her.
and she's this darling ALL the time.

I was in love with the floral arrangements.
and the food was to die for.
especially the donuts, my new obsession.
I ate 2.

yes, of course we wear dark sunglasses at weddings.

oh david kiley. we miss you. come home.

And then the fair...
You bet your bottom dollar we went to the Utah State Fair.
So so fun.

pretty hair mary.
she's so daring.. and gorgeous, which makes it easy to be daring...

San Fran weekend...

Here's a little preview of our weekend in SF with marcus and michelle and the guys...
I'll explain later.
but we love it there.
and I sometimes wish we lived there.
actually a lot of times.
one day?

Happy Bday boy.
and a cute little cardigan.
its cute, right?
love you boy.
and I think its rude they didnt give you a free cheesecake for your bday.

His other love.

Do you ever have those days where you don't see each other even once?
Today's one of those days.
So I'm making cookies.. even though I really hate cooking and will probably be asleep before he gets home.

Awhile ago (k, June 28th... I know guys) Jess, zach's sis, sent me the recipe for these to die for choc chip cookies.
And now I'm making them.
Later is better than never... Right?
Thanks Jess.

And you're welcome if I ever see you today, boy.

Welcome, my senior year

I promise I know I'm super dramatic about school...

Ever since I was little, I've loved quotes.
Reading them. Collecting them. Finding them at just the perfect moment. And giving them away.
Growing up my mom always had quotes around the house and on the fridge and I started collecting them and taping them up in my closet.
Which turned into a quote book when I left for college.

My friend, shel, reminded me of my quote book last week, and I'm going to start sharing some of it with you and you and you.
And you can start a quote collection if you'd like.
It helps.
on those days.
And every other day, too.

I first read this quote before my mono finals week... Also known as the worst week of my life.
And I have read it many a finals week since.
It makes me remember that everyone (not everyone) does this college thing.
And everyone makes it through alive.
Maybe once I'm done with school, I can read it when I have real problems...

"Whenever we are inclined to feel burdened done with the blows of life, let us remember that others have passed the same way, have endured, and then have overcome. When we have done all that we are able, we can rely on God's promised help."
- President Monson

Welcome my senior year.
I thought you'd never come.

It wasn't ten dollars, it was fifteen thanks.

So, I sold my laptop.
I listed it for super cheap since I hate It and want to get rid of it.
Then this kid who has braces on his bottom teeth and a girlfriend with purple hair really wanted to buy it.
So I met him at sugarhouse coffee shop.
This trendy yuppie coffee shop that makes me feel out of place.
Then I gave him the computer and he said, "thanks, I had to buy books today so I only have $140, I hope that's ok."
Oh ya, that's totally fine, I didn't just have to buy books or anything.
Oh wait, I did.

That's not what I said though.
I said oh.
Then he said, "I mean, you can stop at my shop and get the rest if you need to, its only ten bucks."
Um, actually it was 15.
But I said i guess that's fine and left.
Because I didn't want to make him think i really needed the 15 bucks i guess,
Or because i didnt want to make things more awkward then he already made them,
Or because I sometimes can't stand up for myself when I'm out of my comfort zone or taken off guard.

But, just so you know, if you mess with me your going on my blog.
And I'll tell my husband and he'll hate your guts for me.
And I'll tell my mom and she'll say you are really, really rude (that's right, 2 reallys).
And then I'll tell the wives at zachs flag football game.
And then I'll feel better.
Just so you know.

P.s. Smoking Is bad for your lungs and your jeans are out of style.
