ready for a vacay!

tomorrow we're going to sanibel island for a few days. i don't know if anyone has been paying attention, but we've been in monsoon season all week, and it doesn't appear to be letting up. so my beach getaway is going to be a rainy one. but, hey, it's still a getaway! and it won't be blazing hot.

congrats, kris allen. church music leaders are taking over the world. finally.

maybe it's maybeline

i don't know what it was, but i cried for both winston churchill and princess di yesterday. i was watching a show about the windsors on pbs. and i cried. i cried for william and harry. i cried for fergie losing her friend. maybe it's the combination of pbs and pms.
ps, mom, i want this quilt. and, go!

it's been soooo long

this week started with a field trip and pretty much went downhill from there. now it's thursday, i've got 4 finales (castle, big bang, biggest loser, lost) under my belt (this week only) with a couple more to go. excited about tonight's office episode. last week's was hilarious. cafe disco, anyone? would it really be that bad to have michael scott as a boss? i'm also in the midst of reading atleast 6 books at once. did i mention that i've been working out 5 days a week for the last 5 weeks? it feels good. it's too bad that danny gokey didn't make idol finals. i guess we'll be seeing adam lambert's cd of screams and screeches on shelves soon.

working for the weekend

i threw this purse together for my weekend away with dot and midge. it has pockets for my cell, camera and ipod as well as a grommet for my earbud cord and a loop to hook my wallet and keys to.

my new camera. light as a feather and small as a pack of gum.

don't you love the color?

and it's a nikon.

be still my beating heart

Wolverine Sequel Already in the Works

so i didn't know this, but...

apparently freckles are unsightly. people don't like that they have freckles and have a dermatologist remove them with a laser treatment. i read that freckles are the result of too much sun. any of you who know me know that i am hardly ever in the sun, yet i have an abundance of freckles. are they really that bad? wolverine's kayla silverfox had freckles. i know quite a few redheads who are freckled. so i googled, 'i like my freckles'. i wanted to read one website devoted to liking yourself the way you are. all i found was 'i don't like my freckles', 'i hate my freckles', etc.

so i'm taking a stand to say, i like my freckles - they are a part of who i am. plus, if i ever got rid of them, i would be void of color. my freckles are the only thing that make my skin visible to the naked eye.

more addictions

apparently, i'm addicted to those top 5 surveys on facebook. i've done 11 of them since yesterday. i'll run out at some point.

hugh knows jack about wolverine

and after a little surfing, so do i.
we went to see x-men origins: wolverine last night and even though people watched it online without so much as a twinge of conscience, then go on and on about what was wrong with it; i liked it. it had more language than your average x-men movie, but the story was good. i'm really getting tired of all these basement-dwelling comic book nerds who have spent their lives following every story line of every character, then come into a movie and criticize it. i'm a reader and i understand that books cannot translate perfectly to film without some adjustments. besides, i'm just here for the jack, man.

practicing for werewolverine.

saunter and blue steel.

please retract your claws while saying grace.

do you smell something?

not in the mood for a snowball fight.

everyone else look away in shame.

spoiler alert!!! brotherly love?
