Laughter Can Make Anything Better

9 01 2011

Well, it’s official. We’ve hit a rough patch. Carter has been awake about every two hours over the last four days/nights. Mommy is exhausted. Daddy is exhausted. Carter is…Carter. Definitely fussier than our normal happy guy, much less agreeable to being put down for naps and bedtime. But still laughing.

I took this video on Saturday afternoon. The laughter helped all of us get through the next night (even if there were tears from more than one member of the family in the middle of the night).

Who Doesn’t Love a Good Hot Dog?

This guy.

not impressed

Who knew a little hot dog could be so cute? I laugh when I think about what CJ will say to me when he’s 16 and we look through these pictures (indulge me here, let’s pretend my future 16 year old boy will enjoy his mom’s company enough to look through old pictures with her) and he shakes his head with disgust at his first halloween costume.

only $1.50 including a fountain soda!

Things That Crack Me Up

12 09 2010

Random stuff found on the Internet. No clue where I got this, no clue when I got this, but it’s saved on my hard drive and cracks me up every time I come across it.

thanks for the laughs, internet

I’m Very Busy

15 05 2008

If you need to get in touch with me, please send me a message on my blackberry.

Who could be calling me? I’m so busy.

I don’t have time for this, you people need to listen better!


One more text and I’ve gotta go.


I’m outta here, always on the run I am.


Funny Things Seen in My Neighborhood

18 02 2008

It’s been a big couple of weeks on the “people moving to Seattle” front. My friend, and one of my roommates from college, Julianna moved here a couple of weeks ago and my other two friends from Dallas, Cara & Clint, visited to get a feel for the great PacNW in February, partake in an interview or two…and of course visit with some friends!

On top of all of this, I’m actually back to work full time! So…as usual, I’m a bit behind in posting my riveting updates. I’ll get to some storytelling and pictures soon, but in the meantime I’ll leave you with some funnies of items seen in the shop windows in my neighborhood. Thankfully, they were taken with my cell phone so the quality is low, hence the visibility in the 2nd one is low.


The door on a local, used bookstore:

 Book Book! Cheap!

And…uh, a new take on The Nutcracker. It’s not your cute little Christmas ballet anymore!


In Shape in 2008

11 01 2008

I joined a new gym this year and have been very good about my workouts so far! My favorite time of the day to go is during the Ellen show, it keeps me laughing and makes me forget the pain I’m in. As she was getting through her favorite online videos today, I realized I was not in nearly as much pain as possible. Good stuff comes from that show!
