my end of the bargain

my dear friend noelle,
(or as cory likes to call her, the first noelle)
promised she'd get a blog if i got one of those
silly facebooks...
then noelle proceeded
to actually create a blog and now i have to
follow through with my promise...this just goes
to show that nothing
good comes from sticking to your word.

who am i kidding, i'm sure i would have gotten
one eventually anyway and
i'm sure i'll fall truly
madly and deeply in love with facebooking(?)...
what i'm trying to say is, noelle...i forgive you.

dramatic much?

this is what cory
is like when she
gets foolin'

what bennett hearts

he could watch every clip of john-john
over and over and over
and smile from ear to ear the whole time...
i sort of adore john-john too.

girls vacay!!!

this is me and the gals vacationing in seattle.
there's: cory, jenny, me, and alina d....
who is between
me and alina d. you ask?
oh that happens to be none other than the quirky
girlfriend of corey matthews from 'boy meets world'...
topanga big evidenced in our picture,
we're totally bff.

the truth is, we were on a trip in
seattle when i spotted her in the hotel bar
and was the only one who had the guts to go
up and ask for a picture with her...even though
we didn't know her real name.
i believe my exact words were: "are you topanga from
that one show?"
i sure do know how to make those celebrities
feel good about themselves.

anyway, i think the only reason she agreed to a
picture is because she may have been a
little tipsy.

(in response to my title

for this post...if anyone ever
hears me uttering the phrase
"girls vacay!!!" for realsies...
shoot me...
that goes for the phrase
"for realsies" too...and the
overuse of exclamation points.)

our best in 2009

well, there were lots of 'bests' for us.
but our oregon coast adventure may have
topped our lengthy list.

(feel free to make fun of how R I D I C U L O U S
i look at the end of the film, running through the trees...)

18 months

it's a big number
in our house.

hello nursery...
(which means hello
relief society...
haven't been in
so long...i wonder
if it's changed.)


current favorite:
shouts "ta-da"
when he and dave are
doing tricks.

current not-so-favorite:
takes all...and i mean all
of our shoes out of our
closet and brings them
to us saying "shhhhoe...shhhhoe".

love him.

me: "no no that's the president...president"

bennett: "prssssss" (attempting to say president)

long pause


yeah, not quite.

oh bennett, you're so political.

when dave's around
i'm chopped liver.

going once going twice

my glider.
it's cute.
it's green.
and best of
all it's free.

i recovered the
foot rest but, alas,
i don't know how
to sew, so the seat
cushions aren't
done. (i will include
the left over material
if you wish)

she is a tad rickety
because of old age...
but she serves her purpose.

must be the first to comment
must promise to give her a loving home
must pick her up by tomorrow night
(otherwise we have to take her
to the d.i.)

rachel mcadams on the other hand - not so much

this little gem to
'awkward family photos' ...
