my house right now...

i guess this is what happens when your parents are out of the country
and your little brother brings his friends over to watch the euros.


my parents are out of the country—you know what that means?
party hard!

psych. what it really means is that for the past week and a half i've been hanging out with my siblings.

my mom and dad went to guam (my dad's mission) a week ago to visit and do humanitarian dental work.
i've had the awesome privilege of watching my family until next monday.
they are seriously awesome kids. i absolutely love my family and will miss them so much when i leave in august.

here are our past two christmas cards. just for fun!



you can just take a guess at who designed them

in instagrams

adam at his baseball game. look at that form.

apparently this is what my brother thinks about me. all of those are Apple products in the bubbles. and my beard...

some things you just have to burn. like textbooks that you can't sell.

i drove up the canyon one day for fun. it was.

disco bowling with a friend.

won by one.

 oh matt...


hazel was glad to have me home. i'm a sucker for those eyes. when i eat, she does, too.

little debbie and betty crocker were my personal chefs in college.

midnight pancakes. because why not?

a new desktop background. low-poly landscapes are becoming a love of mine.

i'm a noodles and seafood kinda guy.

nutella on graham crackers. mmmm.

fanta. again.

a pattern i fold into almost every program in sacrament meeting.

driving up to cole's for some WWDC

a house i saw on the way. it ended up being a colonoscopy-something-or-other-weird-place.

i had some of the best watermelon i've ever tasted. and if you know me, you know i love watermelon.

shadows are cool. am i right?

bill clay and hillary jessie clinton. zach left me those masks when he left. we used them to scare the efy kids.

like i said—i drank a lot of fanta.


twenty four days.

that's the longest break i've ever taken.
you must've thought i was taking my dear sweet time to whip up the greatest post known to man.
you thought right.

that is—if the greatest post known to man is a couple of gifs.
the first is jessie dancing with shrimp (you can't see them, but they're there)
and the second is just me. dancing. booya.
oh and check out my freaking beard! you'll get more details soon.

speaking of me dancing. take a look at this gem from a few years ago.
(sorry mobile peeps, i couldn't get a non-flash version)

back to tonight—jessie and kassie and i felt lonely so we kassie made dinner.
then we watched the young victoria. it was such a good movie.

this one really funny thing happened in it though that we couldn't get enough of!

isn't that hilarious? he absolutely eats it! we probably watched it twenty times.

oh! and to top it off, the night ended with a call from Kate.
inhale some things in life... exhale

let's just say i was all

i'm sorry about not blogging for the majority of june.
you've missed out on some great stuff.
heck, i even missed celebrating clay-all-day's first birthday!
how lame is that? we'll throw a party soon.
the good news is:
i'm back.
