the view from here.

ready for the morning.

a lil some-some i'm working on.

i cleaned the "office area" yest.

and baked sugar free (splenda)
choc chip cookies for a friend's
fiance (he's diabetic). yum.

last night was my first photography class.
very basic
but it sounds like he will build on the basics
which is good.
first assignment is to play with shutter speed.
i have a few days to think on that.
i don't want to just do the water sprinkler
or running water from the faucet.

i work the late shift today
so i have a lil time to catch up on
these informative pieces:

on going mid-evil.

bff and i took our girls
on a lil road trip this weekend.
they dressed up
and were actually quite
embarrassed that bff & i
did not.

the girl one wondered if i felt
out of place.
i tell you what
if i were to dress up, i'd be a gypsy.
those costumes were quite nice!!

we had a good time, sat on some hay and
watched a juggler fumble through his act.

bff was his chosen victim.

i love his little shoes!!
when we commented on them
he did not miss a beat,
explaining that little shoes
were NOT indicative of anything.
except little toes.

they even had rides
at the faire.

okay, not really
but isn't this guy HUGE?!

on the weather and the season.

if fall is here, then why
does it feel like spring?

i need some oranges and deep browns
and perhaps some yellows...
it couldn't hurt to have some cooler
temps that last longer than my morning.

it almost seems sacrilege to sip a PSL
when the sun is out in full force.

i said almost...

this man.

still gives me butterflies.

still makes me laugh.

still owns my heart.

happy 14th anniversary, babe.
i'd do it again
and again
and once more for good measure
if you so desired.

from the nephew's birthday party
(that's why i had my camera with me)

of the honeycrisp!!

at time management.

so much fun.

so little time!!
my birthday began with the bff
picking me up for a birthday PSL.
she even had a bouquet of balloons for me!!

then my bosses ordered cuppy cakes
yes i had to work on my birthday
but when you get a free red velvet cupcake out of it
who can complain?!

we posted the deets for the actual birthday celebration...
somehow i lost about 11 years by the time saturday rolled around!!

thanks for the starf*cker
you're the bestest.

she made me f*ck a star,
i made her ride a bull

uhm, guys, where's jenevy??
somehow i didn't get that pic??

found her.
on the dance floor!! :)

and thus ends
my birthday with the co-workers
we had a blast
and more than a few shots.
who's next?

(or was it two birthdays ago?)

posting it here so that i will have it

xoxo thanks bff for

little treasure

love blue and green together.
it just feels happy to me.

speaking of happy colors...
how cute is this cupcake?

anyone who knows me
knows i am more excited about halloween
than i am my own birthday.

friday is right around the corner!!

and today i give thanks.

because i know that He has a plan for us.
i'll deal with the tiny house
because we can pay the rent
i'll deal with the budgeting of funds for
what seems like every.little.thing
because it means we will be appreciative of what we have.

here's a better shot of the bathroom
re-do. i am aware that it's just paint
but anything is better than the flowery paper!!

i got to play in my art journal today.
i will play catch up tomorrow
with that. :)

notes on a thanksgiving that wasn't in november.

la crabigayil came home from baylor
this weekend
and she wanted some FOOD.
what else is new?

so yesterday we headed to my mom's to
feast like it was thanksgiving.

complete with a kid's table.

my brother stevie gave it all a thumbs up.

the kids looked cute.
love sugar lump's hairdo!!

after all that excitement
i could have easily claimed
i was exhausted
and who could blame me if i
weasled my way out of painting the
downstairs bathroom?

that wouldn't be me, though.
i wanted all that icky country style wall paper COVERED.
and cover it i did.

oh, and did i mention i got my hair cut this weekend??

the quickest way to a giggle:

we're back.

what a wonderful mini-vaca!!
i think the cabin was over-priced for what we got
but i figure the money was worth it,
because we got the heck outta dodge
and got to laugh and play and talk.

thanks babe,
your idea rocked!!

i got the hell outside.

and took some pictures.


so yesterday was my day off.
i decided earlier in the week that
i was in desperate need of a pedi.
gorceries can wait.
first things first, people.
after a quick stop at the bucks
(PSL is back!! omgosh PSL is back!!)
bff and i arrived at the aveda institute
(did you know there was one in the 210?!)

and after a much needed pampering
and giggle fest (thanks to amanda and ian)

i headed outside to take some pictures.

finished our day off with a bit of this

and all was perfect in my world.
