i’m usually not very good about taking pictures when i go on a trip, or when i’m at a party, or an event. if i happen to remember to even bring my camera, i typically forget to pull it out and actually use it.
my cell phone, on the other hand, is pretty much ALWAYS with me. so when fun/funny/random/crazy things happen, i often pull out my phone and snap a picture.
so here is a pictoral update of some random fun things that have been going on in my life lately…
i got a new license plate!
‘girlscout’ is a nickname/”agent call sign” that was given to me a couple years ago.
… i made a peanut-butter-chocolate trifle (how DO you pronounce that anyway?)
it tasted SO good! and yesterday i tried a variation on the recipe and made a chocolate-raspberry trifle. i want to try a chocolate-mint version next!
speaking of food…
after church on sunday
a bunch of us went to Joe’s Real BBQ for lunch after church. conrad got a “baker” and added a few toppings…
i was in such shock that someone would actually want THAT many pickles on their….baked potato… i just had to take a picture!
we had our monthly singles meeting. it was our caregroup’s turn to
bring the after-meeting food. we chose nachos! so i arrived early to the
meeting with a crockpot full of 4lbs of taco meat – YUM! however, the
yumminess didn’t last long… as i lifted the crockpot out of the car,
the cord got caught underneath the seat. as i turned away, crockpot in
hand, the cord stuck, jerking the crockpot, which sent the inner pot
right onto the church parking lot. it shattered and pieces of pottery
and taco meat were mashed together in a nice pile…
::sigh:: it was tragic. fortunately, my car managed to escape the shloppy mess with only this:
the whole thing was actually pretty darn hilarious. i had a great laugh over it!
i coordinated another wedding. 3rd wedding in 3 months and i have another one next month! ah, it’s so much fun – i just LOVE it! every wedding i do, i learn something new and try to implement it the next time around. so at THIS wedding i wisely used walkie-talkies (with ear feeds of course,) to communicate with the sound guy and the videographer. WHAT a difference. here’s me with my “wire” (yet another outlet for my spy fetish):
i babysat this adorable little boy:
speaking of kids, last wednesday was our church’s first Moms2Moms group. i got this shot when i popped my head into the 2 1/2 – 4 yr olds childcare class:
aren’t they so cute all clustered around Kierstyn as she reads them a story.
i got a new pair of shoes! red shoes are the new accessory and i decided a couple weeks ago that i should like to have some. i found some uber cute American Eagle ones at Payless:
(please show some restraint in your comments about the blinding whiteness of my legs… )
spring is almost here – which means trader joe’s is selling bunches of
daffodils for $1.29. they’re so pretty and spring-ish when they all open up – and
mine opened today! aren’t they beautiful?
a few random snapshots from my life… thanks for tuning in!
