Yard games and big hats...

Mary's shower on Sunday was so much fun & reminiscing on Saturday about old times at 418 was great too. Why can't life be that much fun all the time? It's nice to think about my relaxing weekend when work is as draining as it was today...

Lazy Friday

After reading Valerie's post about taking a day off last week I thought, "I should do that". But I didn't. I always feel guilty missing work because of the kids and stuff that needs to get done. Today though after waking up every morning this week with a headache and feeling exhausted, I decided to take a day off. It was wonderful. Once I finally got up and was feeling better I opened all the windows. The weather was beautiful and it couldn't have been a better lazy Friday...not to be confused with lazy Sunday....or lazy Scranton :o)

Watching the new Survivor and waiting to watch THE NEW OFFICE!!! Yea!!!! So excited :o)
Wait, did they just say one of the tribes is named "Thong"...I hope not. Maybe it was "Fong".

Mary and I looked for big sun hats today with no success. Time is running out before the bridal shower on Sunday.

And finally, here's a look at my cool passion flowers in bloom. They look like space age jelly fish.

Moths, Flyladies and Gators

We found pantry moths in our cupboard grains, cereal, etc. this weekend. Gross! Unfortunately we have had to toss almost all foods from the cabinet. Our outside bin is already full and garbage day isn't until Friday. Pretty sad to get rid of all that food...

Speaking of flying insects, I am trying to be better about doing my daily "flylady". It's this really cute website that gives you a 15min daily chore to help keep your house in order and minimize the "oh my gosh people are coming over I have to do a massive 3 hour cleaning". It makes me fell like I'm completing a challenge rather than actually doing a chore. www.flylady.net

And finally...Here's my Lil' Gator orange and blue-ified!

Young Life

I have a lot of really great memories from being involved with Young Life. This was the kick-off bbq last year. Steve gets attacked by a bunch of rogue vigilantes, but Jon doesn't believe him...I'm the one with the horse on a stick...

Noah's Ark

I've had this one in my head ever since my nephew, Noah, was born. I still need to put the ribbon on it. I've also been contemplating putting clouds at the top...we'll see...

Illustration Friday: Clutter

Reduce your communication clutter with I-messages :o)
(I made this while in grad school for a middle school guidance unit)

I was revisting one of my mark kistler drawing books at the time. You can tell by the illustrations. His draw squad book was one of the things that made me love drawing when I was little.

Photo Friday: The Ordinary

I couldn't decide between the two...

Just us on an ordinary day...sitting by Lake Alice...with the dog...in coordinating Gators' colors :o)
(look at that scruff on Jon, so cute)

Thanksgiving 2007
3 things out of the ordinary in the picture:
1. We are in West Palm. I haven't spent a thanksgiving there since middle school.
2. The dog at the table
3. The disgusting mustache my brother is sporting

Illustration Friday: Memories

When I was a little girl my mom told me if I was ever approached by an alien to concentrate on moving my finger ever so slightly and it would go away...true story. This is my self portrait of that memory, trying out the technique on my little brother.
