Friends. I think I've hit my peak. After 4 years of hard work, toil and scraping by as an anonymous BYU-Idaho student, I have finally made it into the school newspaper.  Holy Monoley. The heading:
ART MAJOR BECOME MODEST FASHION BLOGGER. I mean, that alone blows your mind right?
I'm pretty sure this will be my claim to fame for the rest of my life. When I'm on my death bed, with my 9482093482 grandchildren surrounding me, I'll wave my cane in the air and say, "Now listen here kiddies. I know you all think your grandma is a boring old kook, but guess what. I was famous once. That's right. I was famous for an entire day. At my little school ... in a little farm town ... that's in Idaho.
Mark my words, they're all going to be hypervhentilating with jealousy.

Hi, I love your blog! I just have one thing I'm wondering and I hope you can fill me in. I love how you paired a scarf with a belt over it like the one in your photography lesson picture. Can you explain? Like, is it a circular scarf? Where is your favorite place to find scarves? ALSO, how do you tie your skinny belts? They look so interesting. It looks so cute!

e.day said...

Hoorayyyy for you! That is so exciting! And of course this picture is adorable. I love your outfit :)

kileen said...

That's so exciting! It's such a cute picture of you featured with the article, too.

P.S. Your grandma story is hilarious!

geri e. said...

ha! Syd-nay! congrats congrats! so very proud of you.

and loving the pink/purpley lips.

Amy H. said...

Long time follower {and by long I mean about a week} first time commenter. So hope you do not find it creepy that I live vicariously through you. I mean lets face it, my kids are holding me down {you know the kind, sweat pants and last nights t-shirt}, BUT I really should not blame them since they are only 4 and 1. But really can a Momma get some fashion back in her life?!

So there you have it the secrets out, I CAN NOT DRESS. No worries by the way, I live in FL with no plans to visit ID anytime soon. So there will no stalker sightings.

Smitten.

My Heart Blogged said...

Well famous is famous, no matter where, or how long. I think you are much more than a modest blogger though! Psh, they just don't know what they are talking about.

Melissa said...

Woot Woot! Nicely done. I had a question though. What program do you use to edit your photos slash post them all awesome and same sizeness side by side... clearly its not just the blogger photo uploader (it hates pictures side by side).

Rose said...

I think the Pita Pit ad really complements your photo. ;)

Randa said...

That is so awesome! Congrats!

Btw, maybe it's because I'm from the "deep" south but all that snow makes me cringe. Do you wear a coat when you're out in it or do you only wear what's in the photo?

I know it's lame but I'm always flabbergasted when you have pictures like this because I can't even imagine going outside with out four layers, a hat, gloves, and fuzzy boots with all that snow!

That is so awesome, congrats, you are too cute!!

Heather said...

Congratulations on hitting the big time! Your photos and outfit choices are always fantastic, so it's no surprise to me that you're getting recognized. If I were you, I'd be casually reading that newspaper everywhere I went in public to maximize the day of fame.

Sarah said...

Congrats! You totally deserve it. Your description totally cracked me up, and made me think of that song "I'm the King of New York" from Newsies. Now all you need to do is stage a song and dance number to commemorate the event ;-)

Ahhhhh, omg Sydney, that's so exciting!! Congrats!! I don't blame you at all for being excited, I would be super pumped. But I'm pretty sure this isn't your peak and I'm willing to bet that this will not be your only piece of press - it's probably just the tip of the iceberg!

Congrats again!
