is that bad luck?

last night, at color-me-mine, i broke my ceramic bowl.
so mad.
luckily jake was done so i could just walk out of there.
but first,
i had to pay for my
just taped,
haven't even painted yet,
shattered bowl.
it topped off the night really.

am i going to have to throw salt over my shoulder to cancel this horrible experience out?

let's hear it

for the girls.

love these ladies so much.
some have graduated, and some are hanging in there with me
so it's always a party when we get together.
from left to right:
ingrid, anna, flavia, me, erica--the bride (isn't she gorgeous?!), kayla, and hilarie.

and my newest find is these boots.
(psst! they are my grandma's from like 1970)

but with some good food, good friends, and good boots,
made for a great night.
love you all!

i quit my awful, depressing, monotonous job
and got a new one that is stretching, nerve wracking, but my whole heart's desire
all within 24 hours.
i have worked and pushed for this opportunity when i thought i couldn't push anymore,
or that i should stop,
but low and behold, it all worked out.
i am ecstatic and super nervous at the same but
i feel like this will get me where i ultimately want to be
and very soon.
this is my dream job and i can't believe i am already here.
don't you all fret, i'm not stopping here, i'm going to keep going and growing.
wish me luck.

we're teaching him early

how to pray.

and to work on that turn-out.

he is destined for greatness.

we came, we interpreted, we conqured....

sort of...
we attempted to be great.

get it? (alright maybe only you Deaf Studies nerds will...)

need i say more?
gag me.

and this girl was my rocking team.
i just sat there shocked and amazed at her mad skills.
it was distracting quite honestly.

ask me next week if i enjoyed it or not.
for now, i am letting my mind take a very much needed break
before school starts on wednesday.
oy. school. gag me.

(maybe next time i could indulge you all on all the hilarious/stupid/ignorant hearing people we had to deal will be quite the treat)

that's what you get

when you leave the boys to entertain themselves.

they built a fire pit in the backyard.
and it didn't even take them that long.

oh, and they had to roast marshmallows,
so they scrounged up what they could find--mini ones.

enjoying a mini mallow ourselves.
(so mini you can't even see it)

all of us around the fire.
i feel like we should be singing girls camp songs or something...
black socks, they never get dirty...

we played water kick ball

and have the grassy, wet, and red feet to prove it.

(and that lovely purple bruise on my right ankle is a popped blood vessel)
oh for the game.
