Home was amazing! If you haven't been able to tell yet, my family is so incredibly important to me. Chase and I went to the climbing gym Thursday night - it is one of the most challenging and liberating sports in my mind. I wish so bad that I was an athlete in the sense of a tennis or soccer or basketball player but my heart is in the extreme sports -  I feel so much more hardcore that way. Dad made coffee every morning for me (except for the ones I slept SUPER late into - he makes the BEST coffee; I try to make the same but he adds the touch of love *aww*) and brought home awesome movies. Sadly, I fell asleep during two of the three of them (sometimes I think I have a sleeping disorder). I stayed awake during Taken... it kind of creeped me out but it was a very intricate and well-made movie. Honestly, I loved it. Mom and I also hosted a bridal shower for my cousin, Lauren Larson, who is getting marred in mid June. Pictures from that later! 

I spent the majority of the time home crafting with mom. This was my main project: coffee sleeves. We decided to call them "Whitney's Coffee Warmers" but the name is subject to change. I'm going to start selling them at the coffeeshop I work in but will be extending to the rest of Auburn / possibly the internet if they start selling well! 

I made these things for my mom - for Mother's Day:
1. Drew dandelions on a vintage gardening book. 
2. Painted a picture.  

Finally, this is the rest of the Transition series I made for my roommates / "bff" Brandy. It was so special to give to them before everyone leaves.
