In case you missed it

This is how the bathroom turned out after the wallpaper. Even though
the papering was not done perfectly I am quite pleased with the
finished look. : )

Inspired by Amanda's idea to make bunting (these cute little flags) I
made this sign today, and I love it!

The story of my favorite jean cutoff shorts

Created circa 2003 from a pair of jeans worn in high school and possibly even junior high, these cutoff shorts have been a signature clothing item of mine for many years. It is very possible my husband fell in love with me while wearing these very shorts. Due to the fact that I wear them most days in the summer.
why are they so perfect?
Because they were made from a pair of jeans (gap, long and leans) with no stretch in them, therefore allowing them to fray perfectly.
Replicas have been attempted by myself, and even close friends, but none compare.
How old is too old for me to be wearing these?
Not sure, but chances are I will have to be told to put them away by family members and/or peers.
Summer 2010 here we come!

A serenade

Jessica sent me this funny thing.

A note to Jessica:
You are never without me, I am with you always in heart, soul, and song.
I love you!

Soo it has been an interesting few days

First of all don't hire me to put up wallpaper, that was a treacherous activity and it is quite obvious that I am a beginnner when you look at the work, Paul and I couldn't believe how hard it was, he helped after he got off work and and now it's done, but we are waiting on another roll to finish it up. I think my mom may come and help try and remedy the worst bits of it...
But i still LOVE the the paper
Secondly my eye rash whatever has been consuming my energies all week! I have been to the doctor twice and have been dealing with insane burning, itching, swelling, it is downright crazy. I am sitting here right now only being able to open one eye fully. Im ready for this to be over...
So that's it

Happy Birthday Mark!

I know your lovin this pic

Hey I just want to tell Mark that he is pretty stinkin great, and I am so happy you are taking care of our Meggy. And happy that I get to hang out with you because of that fact, love you!

Adventures in Wildflowers

Paul and I went out the other day and took some pics of each other and of us in the blue bonnets, unfortunately the old camera we were using failed us, and the film turned out blank. So i went out solo the other day to get some more good ones, And I believe I am going back out one more time to try and get some of me and Paul, even if I did catch some odd allergy and now one of eyes is swollen like a balloon (pretty gross).
Heres some pics

( hi! )

The Grego

So it's my brother's big day today and he has been officially rockin' out for 26 years now, and I have been along for 24 of them. Greg and I have taught each other a lot, thanks to him I know how to play nintendo, make really weird faces, perfect accents and repeat movie lines over and over until they are just right and so much more...
He is a blast to hang out with, he will even dance with you when a good song comes on.

I am so thankful for my brother, every single one of my friends is probably tired of hearing me brag about his progress in medical school and the fact that he will be a real doctor this summer, but the amazing thing is that is not even the most impressive thing about him. His love for his family, his passion for life's joys and his aspirations to become a family man are my favorite of Greg's gifts.
Love you Grego
