hello, you beautiful thing

this week has been the best week. i haven't slept in my own bed since last thursday, but i love my friends so much that i don't even care!

like i said in my last post, i went out of town this last week. i was in california with some of my best friends. it was a good time. :)

on monday we woke up at the crack of dawn and drove to newport to go to the beach. the beach is not my thing, but i had a good time.. 

on tuesday we went to the santa monica pier. we also road bikes and had a picnic like lunch on the beach! my legs still kill from that day, but so so worth it.

then on wednesday we went to magic mountain! my legs also still hurt from that day. and my head, and shoulders, and sun burnt bod.

i miss this already!

love, shelby


i'm going out of town for almost a week, and i can't believe that i am so sad to leave my best friend :/ i never thought in a million years i'd be a dog person, but dean is the sweetest, most beautiful dog in the world (he can be a boy and still be beautiful). i'm excited for this next week, but i'm also excited to get back to my puppy!! 

love, shelby



yesterday was a long, long, busy, long, good day. i actually spent the first half of it at the car dealership getting my oil changed (which i was supposed to do a very long time ago..). then after i went and babysat my "cousin". (its my moms cousins daughter, so i have no idea what to call her... cousin will do.)

her name is berkley (B for short), and she is just about the cutest thing in the world.

after we went and visited my uncle mike's grave. it was a good/sad time. i missed my family, because i feel like i never see the lesueur side. it was soooo good to see them all! but obviously it was sad, because mike was the best guy i know! and i miss him a lot. :) it's a darn good thing i'll see him again someday, because if i couldn't... then that would be a shame!

we also heard from jack, and even got some sweet pictures of spain! i love that kid more and more every email!

i love my family today! (and every day.. but especially today.)

have a great day!! 
love, shelby


here's some music.

good morning all 9 people that read my blog! (you're 9 of the best anonymous people i know..)
today is a good day. one, because it's saturday, and saturday's are good days. two, because it's jace's tenth birthday. holy cow, where did the time go? 10??? freak.... 
and three, because, i don't know it just feels like a good day!

so, i've been wanting to do a post about music for a while, because music is pretty much my favorite thing in the whole world (besides like, my family and friends and food yadda yadda oxygen blah blah). a lot of times i buy music and then forget about how much i love certain songs like, a year down the road. so i wanted to do a post about my favorite music (right now). it's changing constantly, but for now, these are my favorites. 

*side note: my music is a giant deal to me. i'm oddly possessive of bands and artists and songs, and i hate sharing them with people. me and jack have that in common haha. there are some of my favorite songs i can't share because i feel like they're my songs (i'm weird i know), and also because me and jack email each other a lot about music, and so some of them i feel like are our songs. not that you guys even care much anyways.... but okay, here we go haha.

also these aren't in any order. pretty random actually.

1: tyrant kings by needtobreathe.

this is my all time favorite band in the entire world. i was supposed to go see them a few weeks ago but i ended up not going. (this is jacks favorite, too.) all of their songs are sooooo amazing. but tyrant kings is probably my favorite right now.

2: migraine by twenty one pilots.

this song is weird. but i think it's a cool kind of weird haha. i like blasting the "rap" (whatever it is, i don't even know.) really loud. i don't know many of the words but, i pretend to.

3: unwritten by natasha bedingfield.

okay let's be honest. we all love this song. 

4: oceans (where my feet may fail) by hillsong united.

jack showed me this song, and it's definitely a little churchy, but it's honestly one of the most beautiful songs i have ever heard. it's a good sunday song!

5: remember me by augustana.

this song is actually really depressing haha. (jack told me about this one too... his taste in music is flawless.. except he doest listen to akon sometimes and that's confusing to me.) but it's a good one, for sure.

6: just what i needed by the cars.

this song is just a classic. i heard it on the mindy project a few weeks ago and now it's always stuck in my head haha

7: kick drum heart by the avett brothers.

just a good one to jam too. the avett brothers don't really have a song i don't like

8: yellow by coldplay.

love songs... are the best (is this a love song? haha i don't know it sounds like one. we'll say yes.)

9: fast car (cover) by michael collings.

this song is the absolute best cover of any song i have heard. you have to listen to the acoustic version though, that one is awesome. this song makes me sad though so... sometimes i hate it

10: london bridge by fergie.

okay hahaha i'm actually kind of embarrassed to admit that i like this song because it's freaking dirty. but if you don't listen to the words then it's all good! also theres a clean version of it (it's not as cool... whoops) but yeah, this song roxxxx.

11: hey ya by obadiah parker.

i love the guitar, and this version (of a song that i always that was really weird until now) is awesome.

12: stay with me by sam smith.

i think this is actually pretty popular song. but i definitely pretend i know how to sing when it comes on. ughhhh it's so good

well, that's about it i guess. i really had a hard time picking my favorite from needtobreathe. i love them. so much. but yeah, you can look these songs up and listen to them or just... not! i don't even care! 

anyways, i hope everyone has the best saturday of their lives. 
and happy birthday to the cutest boy i know. :)

love, shelby


i don't have a title for this

wassup my friends!

so, a lot a lot a loooot has been going on lately. first, we got an email from jack today (from spain!!). he told us about his tour of spain on tuesday, his comp., and basically just the general area of where he's going to be for the next year and eight months. and seriously, let me tell you. i am so mother freaking jealous. i guess the area he's in is the "rich" part of spain, and everything is just beautiful. he said it's exactly like what you see in pictures. and his apartment is amazing and ginormous (compared to his last one). oh, and his companion speaks only spanish... haha which i think is awesome! it's forcing him to have to learn spanish. he sounds sooo happy. 

next, i finished my room! i think it looks sweet. but honestly the pictures i'm about to show you don't do it justice. i think it's swag swag swaaag. 



my room looks really boring in the pictures and actually quite ugly. but i have a tv and dresser and book shelf and all that stuff. you just can't see it. i promise.

also, i cut my hair today. it was honestly kind of a spur of the moment thing, but i think it was fun to be spontaneous! it's short, for sure. but i kinda like it! idk. i feel dumb saying i like stuff about me haha.

awkward selfie. :)

other than that, nothings new from like.. two days ago. i have an interview for this job coming up. so, fingers crossed i get it because i need this so bad!

welp, goodnight friends!

love, shelby
