My Moms

How beautiful is my Mommy? Let me tell you a little known fact about this amazing chick. In college she was selected to be in a sorority calendar. This was the photo that made the cut. Hot Mom alert. I also have this as an oil painting of this very photo. It is true. Yes! the the most amazing family heirloom ever. My Mom is one of the strongest, most giving, brilliant (that is right...V.P. of a bank people), heartfelt, beautiful in every way kind of an individual that you will ever meet. If you ever get to meet her consider yourself graced by an angel. Her ability to overcome adversity in her life never ceases to amaze me. Nor does her insurmountable love. I love her so much, and I am lucky to know her. Not only know her but be related (even though I swear I was secretly adopted). If I grow up to be even a fraction like her I will be truly amazing. Thank you Mom for teaching me all that you have.
P.S. My Mom is also a champ at shorthand. No. Seriously. They wanted her to do a shorthand competition of sorts. Funnily enough this works out for me since I am trying to perfect my shorthand skills. I am hoping to follow in her footsteps. Teather ball and horse dancing is next Mom.
I adore you.

Ugliest Easter Egg

Remember when I previously mentioned winning a dog/cat calendar for the ugliest egg? I just found a picture of said egg. We won Milk Duds too. Thank you Jesus. You are so lucky to have your very own holiday. I also cannot forget my egg dying partner that made this win possible. Thank you Jordy.

In other news, my camera is on the fritz and has been for some time. It only takes videos. Eff. The day I dropped it from JMills monster truck I died inside. Speaking of that. I believe a photo was taken of me wearing a helmet inside that monster truck that night? Someone send me that photo via the world wide web please. Anyway. What does this sad monster truck story mean? I have to rely on others from photos, and past photos from my hard drive. Who wants to see high school and fat (phat) photos?

Thank you to those that have told me my blog sucks now. I love you too.

I am this close to buying this dress from Anthropolgie.
In love.
Wouldn't it be perfect for Friday night beach cruiser bike rides?
Did I just try and match an outfit to my bike?

Another Adventure

This is the night I was told the tale of an incredible birth and adoption. That story forever changed my life. I am so grateful to be apart of such amazing lives. This night is in my top ten with this bud of mine. We met our friends later on for Ben's birthday where this gem of a photo was taken. Perfect photo of Roy and I for our engagement. I bet I just started THE biggest rumor with that last sentence. Classic.
Happy Birthday Ben!

Birthday Celebration

These are my incredible friends. You should meet them. You would instantly fall in love. I dare to venture you would even update your Facebook status as "instantly falling in love."
This was when I was friends with a China Doll. She is also known as the birthday girl. I heart her.

Some bored tweens showed up for the party. Seriously? Do you think they could possibly act like they are having just a little bit of fun? Love life man. Yes, I just added saying man to my vocabulary. Thanks a lot tweens.

Then this guy tried to cheer them up. Who wouldn't love a face like that? Haha. Best. Even Mag in the background agrees.

One of the best local bands around. They seem to always be in high rotation on my Ipod.

Months Ago We Went to Black Lips.

Nothing like a good show at Urban. Band art.
Ben and Jordan could not contain their excitement for The Black Lips.

Black Lips. I would like to imagine they are playing my favorite song in this photo.

Note the money in my hand? This proof/information will become important later.

This is when I was proving that I am a hosiery addict. Thanks and no thanks to Elisha to getting me into tights.
Things I will never forget about this night:
-Jordan told me I was too slow for him. Me! Too slow for him?! We almost had our first fight since childhood after that comment.
-I asked Jordan to hold my cash since I did not have pockets in my skirt nor my hosiery. At the end of the night he gave me back $5 dollars-ish. Out of $35. "Um, where is my money citag?" I asked. He lifted up his arms as if he did not know what to do with them and said, "I spent it!" He seemed surprised by his own spending actions, and I think he thought I was a little dumb for being surprised. That was the moment when we extra almost had our first fight since childhood. This aforementioned exchange has now became one of the top ten most funny moments I have ever had with that guy.
