we've bonded

i've been taking holga out lately,

can't wait to get my roll back that i just developed.
(psst! took it to inkleys and they charged me $20 and it takes them 3 weeks.
called allens and they do it for $10 in three hours.
i took my business to allens.)

happy monday holiday.
today is an outing with the girls
and holga.

will post pics when i get my roll back!

many thanks

i could not be keeping my head above water if it wasn't for all your support.

thank you friends.
thank you family.
thank you bryan, will, and flavia.

never saw teaching in the plans...


things i know for sure:
right things happen fast.
it's God's time; not ours.
obedience brings blessings.
faith is knowing that there are never dead ends; just different routes.
friends and family are great support, prayer, and listening lines.

still in shock where i am.
and kind of laughing about it.
(as i'm sure some of you are)
but i guess this is where i need to be for right now.

again, many thanks for your support and excitement.
hugs to you all.

greetings from the nosebleeds

jake's christmas revolved around the jazz:
i gave him a retro d-will jersey,
his brother gave him a jazz hat,
and his mom-in-law gave him tickets.

we were destined to see the jazz play.

and since he is married to me,
i have to document the moments with pictures.
and, quite frankly,
asking a picture from him...

is like getting a four year old to sit still.
you should all be grateful for these ones.

but he was patient with my picture taking
so i was patient enough to sit there for 3 hours
and watch the ants below play ball.

we make it work.
merry christmas jake--jazz style.

we ended 2009 with a bang

we had a "mocktail" party.
(that's non alcoholic drinks my friends)

the menu called for:
pink champagne,
citrus collins,
and sangria.

yum yum.

we enjoyed our drinks,


and the "signing impaired" hubbies who stuck together
and watched t.v.
so cute.

so happy that i could end off the year and kick off a new year with such good people.

needless to say,
we had a good time.

when the ball dropped,
we toasted,
and set off fireworks.
(literally and figuratively. gross!)

i basically became the best mormon bar tender.
call me up.
i'll throw you a party that you will actually remember!

happy 2010!
