Missoula Train Station

IMG_6435
It seems that the universe isn't my my side lately. Last week, I got a cold. A real, full blown cold. It kept me in bed all the time, doing homework on my computer and using my lap desk to do chemistry. Then, my computer crashed and I had to pay big bucks for them to fix my hard drive, which as it turns out, is un-fixable. So I can't save anything to it. At all. I think it's time for a new computer (and I'm not happy about it).  I guess in retrospect, it could be worse and not everything went wrong. I got a C on my chemistry test that I took with a 103 degree fever (class average? 44) and got an A on my archaeology test so I don't have to take the final. Both good things. And it was my one year anniversary. Which caused for a mental uplift. I'm still sick this week, but I have a heck of a lot to do!

So, since I blogged last the Princess got married, the bad guy died...and can we say Disney movie weekend anyone? I just feel like I need to put my two cents in by saying that Kate's dress was absolutely the most beautiful article of clothing I've ever seen. Even though I was sick, I ended up waking up to watch the entire wedding anyways. And it was worth it. I know a lot of people thought all the hurrah was pointless, but after watching, I fully understood why. A royal wedding simply isn't just a wedding! It's an entire event, royal hats included. Seriously, it was like feasting my eyes on candy. If all of my dreams fail to come true, I swear, I'm going to become a wedding planner. And Niklaas will be my side partner photographer. We'd be quite the duo.

I know I've been a terrible blogger lately, but have no fear. After next Thursday, I'm all yours. For four months. In fact, I'm pretty much devoting all summer to working and blogging. It's going to be fabulous. I have a long list of picture ideas in Idaho and themes. I'm so excited! I just need to get through my Chemistry and Biology finals....eeeep. I'm nervous. Does anyone else despise the fact that in college, finals can equate to over half your grade??? I do. It's make it or break it time right now.

Niklaas took these pictures when he was here for a couple days! It was so fun to walk around Missoula and explore- something I pretty much had not done until he came. We walked around downtown, found the coolest thrift store I've ever seen, ate ice cream in the rain, rode the carousel, and strolled by the river. It was wonderful to skip a day of school and just do "fun" things. Plus, it was amazing to see how things would be next year when we can explore every day. I can't wait.

We took these pictures at Missoula's first train station! I wish I could tell you more...but i didn't read the plaque because it was raining and we wanted to get out of here. I am looking forward to finding more historic places to take pictures (that's one of my goals this summer!). I think my favorite part about college (one of) is borrowing clothes. My friend Katie got this dress and it's the most comfy dress I've ever worn. I loved the white flowers! My other friend Maggie has the best sweaters in the world and she loaned me this cardigan from J Crew. She's a J Crew fanatic. They both worked wonders together! I decided to throw on my white oxfords and tights and voila. Comfy outfit.

Feel better soon!! If that cute floral dress doesn't make you feel better, I don't know what will! :-)

Lea said...

Get well soon! I'm nursing a cold too. Though it's not as bad as yours, I don't think. Love historical places like that. But I'm sort of nerdy. There's also a bit of a nostalgic, romantic notion for me when it comes to trains. Lovely pictures.

Gentri said...

I'm so sorry you are sick!! :( That is NO fun!!! (trust me I know, I'm trying to get over the flu right now) You look SUPER DUPER cute in these pictures though!!! :)

Amber Blue Bird said...

colds are the worst since there really isnt any medicine to cure it. Hope you are feeling better now

Alex said...

I really think it's lovely that so many people around the world watched the wedding. I feel really lucky that we had the day off work and it was on at a reasonable time - getting up in the middle of the night can't have been fun for you!

I absolutely love this outfit btw. The print on the dress is stunning and those shoes are just lovely.

Hannah said...

Well shoot, you just can't seem to win with all the school work and now getting sick?! Hope you get better FAST!

We have similar Summer plans as I have also mapped out and planned photo shoots in my head. Some for outfits for the blog and stuff, and others just for fun. I love releasing creative energy with photography! I'll just have to wait and see if they actually happen. Got my fingers crossed!

That dress and cardigan are so super cheery together! They totally brighten up the dreary weather happening in these photos.

P.S. You are adorable in these photos! Let Niklaas know he did a wonderful job, these pictures are superb as usual! :)

Vera said...

Alex said...

Love the whole outfit and that necklace is adorable :P! hahahahahaha oh Maggie you have such nice places over there! I can't find anything decent here... everything is just... no. I mean, my city is not worthy of being photograph! that sound horrible haha, but I've really tried hard to find places and nope. So it's awesome that Montana and Idaho offer those awesome landscapes :) Also, thank God the semester is almost over! I am looking forward for the next months! I know you and Niklaas will get sweeeet pictures! :) Good luck on the tests and I hope you get the package soon! Let me know :)!

Love,
Alex

Catherine said...

These photos are adorable! Such a cute setting.

Also, bravo for hanging in there - hope you're feeling better! Just think, summer :)

Also, I've decided if by any chance I ever get married, it will be required to wear a fancy hat a la fancy British weddings.
