It's been awhile since I've posted.  School started and then I immediately got sick!  Eek.  Still recovering.  Slept in till 11 today.  :)   I had a few adventures before I got sick though.  Here they are, Instagram style!

The day before school started we took a grip to Santa Cruz.  The weather was perfect but we were both feeling really tired.

I saw some random construction stuff on the pier in Santa Cruz.

Last weekend we had dinner with my friend from APU and her husband!  It was sooo fun!  I'm glad they live so close!  We went to a Japanese restaurant.  It was yummy!
The Droullards
The Soon-to-be Arthurs
(Buckwheat soba noodles are naturally gluten-free)

We went to the Droullard's house for the super bowl.  Another friend from APU met us there but I didn't get a picture with her.  It was sooooo fun!

Raeshell bought me this beautiful teacup that she knew I had been admiring!  "Early birthday present."  (My birthday isn't until August!)  :)  Then another friend, Rashel, brought me freshly picked oranges because she knew I was coming down with a cold!  How sweet are my friends?!?!?!

Meanwhile, I didn't necessarily feel sick, yet I completely lost my voice.  I decided to go with Dr. Benson and some fellow students to see the St. Olaf Choir in SF.  
St. Olaf College (in Minnesota) was one of the pioneering universities for choral music.  They developed the distinct "St. Olaf sound," which was opposite from the "Westminster Choir sound."  Over the years the two sounds have gradually moved toward each other, yet I thought that the St. Olaf choir retained much of its original sound: clarity, purity, simplicity.  It was an amazing concert and I'm so glad I went!  The St. Ignacious Cathedral was amazing, too!

That's all for now.  Hopefully I'll have more free time in the next few weeks to do some art projects!  Meanwhile, Valentine's day is coming up and I don't know what to do for Peter!  Suggestions???
