Old News...

I am experimenting with grids so I made one of our camping trip to Juniper Dunes in April. Not so much camping as hanging out in the RV and having a few drinks while the boys played on their bikes. Good times anyway!

Who Doesn't Love Toto?

This is cool version my mom shared with me!
Listen for the thunder!

This one is Josh's favorite version. This guy's one
handed strumming is amazing!

Memories of Maui

Vintage Fun with PSE

The first two are supposed to look like TTVs or "Through the Viewfinder" shots, where you shoot with a macro lens through the viewfinder of a vintage camera, thus the square look.

Brody asked me if I played with these flowers when I was a little girl!

Does Anyone Else Love this Stuff?

This is one of my favorite summer drinks! It makes my tummy all tingly inside and is perfect for boating. I haven't tried the chocolate or the cherry but them citrus mints are actually much better than I thought they'd be.

Of course, they are a "special" treat and I only buy them when they are ten for $10, not very often. And I just can't get enough of this photo with all these great colors.

Mommy and Them Weekend

Just made the yummiest and fastest linguine alfredo ever thanks to this awesome recipe. Since it was Boone's request, we had linguine instead of the usual fettuccine. We swam in the sun this afternoon that wasn't exactly the kind of dinner I was planning but, what are you gonna do?

Tonight we are going to watch Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - gotta start easy and not so scary. And if it is a little scary, Daddy will be gone all weekend so there will be plenty of room in my bed for little visitors.

Ahhh, looks like Brody might miss the movie. We just got to Platform 9 3/4 and he is already asleep!

July 14th, 2009

Outside my window...I hear Josh mowing our jungle! Weedeater has been broken and so all lawn mowing was delayed for awhile.

I am thinking...that I love my new Kirkland lip gloss from Costco.

I am thankful...for nights that my family has low expectations for dinner.

From the kitchen...cheddar brats and spicy dogs, maybe some granola as a second course.

I am wearing...well loved green shorts and my purple shirt from work today.

I am creating...visions in my head about quilts to make.

I am bed after watching some True Blood on DVD. Nowhere to far away for a bit!

I am reading...Darkfever, a free download on the kindle, pretty good so far.

I am hoping...that I make my goal weight for the wedding on August 1st, only 4 pounds to go!

I am hearing...Brody work so hard now to say his Ls. Everything is so pronounced like llllego, lllion!

Around the house...things are pretty picked up thanks to Josh's help last night (except for the ace bandages and Tinker Toy crutches laying all over).

One of my favorite things...the top of my desk is neat, tidy, and clutter free for the 1st time in a bit.

A few plans for the rest of the week...Josh will be gone for the big Bachelor Party weekend in White Salmon and Portland. Trying to think of something for the boys and I to do, not sure their dad would be too happy if I took them to the "Pride" parade this weekend!

I love blogging this way when I can't think of anything important. Just another way to way to track memories of the everyday, mundane, wonderful, BIG life.
