day before the party

these are old, i know, {over a week! gasp!} but i didn’t get around to posting them before, so here they are. this was the night before emily’s grad party. jessie took these, and she is in some, but i’m pretty sure she would kill me if i put them up. right, jess? ha ha:)

in other news, i had a fab memorial weekend. but our dog, theo, didn’t. he got attacked on sunday afternoon by some wild animal {we think it was a wolf or something} so that was pretty rough. he’s hanging in there though, so hopefully he’ll make it. the only problem is that he’s really easily freaked out now, which is easy to understand. i hope he can be normal again…

he was really well behaved today, even though certain other parties {*cough cough LACEY cough MILLIE*} weren’t. i sat outside a good part of the afternoon, and i’m paying for it. the sunshine felt so good, i just wanted to be out there, but i slightly resemble a tomato now. :)

we leave for europe in 2 days. i’m so excited, but also a little nervous. i’ve never been over seas, so this is big. i’m also not relishing the idea of a ten hour flight, but that’s the price you pay, right? i won’t be able to blog since i’m not bringing my laptop but i did purchase an extra SD card! i hope you’re prepared. :)

see you when i get home, if i don’t post before then! i will be able to tweet, though!


*edit: update on theo
yesterday he was doing pretty good, but this morning he took a turn for the worse. infection takes a while to show up, but my parents are at the clinic right now with him & i’m not really sure how it’s going.

trying on the dress

today emily & i took out my mom’s wedding dress. i don’t remember taking it before, so it was really awesome. all of us girls (me, emily & mom) tried it on. the funny thing is, it kind of fit! haha:)

here is my beautiful mother. it fits her perfectly just like her wedding day. :)

it’s very 90’s-ish, but still very beautiful.

photo challenge: green

i’m linking up to pastor’s girl’s ponderings “green” photo challenge.
this is the photo i have as my background. i love the green bud.
i’m super excited about only having one week left of school.
then, in not even two weeks, i’m leaving for europe with my sister & mom. speaking of sister, guess who’s grad party we had today? i was the photographer, so i’ll post the pics later. right now, i’m far too tired. :)
have a great week! i’m sure this week will be filled with packing, school & a memorial weekend at the cabin! yay!

found: old photos

here we have some old photos.
i love looking at these kinds of photos on our computer. they make me laugh, smile & sometimes cringe.
{"what? i wore that??”}
i love them anyways, though.

pink hat picnic
especially photos like this. the three of us were having a picnic {even daniel, with a pink hat on}. adorable.

christmas photo 2001
our family photo for 2001. it makes me smile, daniel’s expression probably the most.

this must have been when we were decorating our christmas tree.

such a cutie. opps. he reminds me every so often, that “cute” is not allowed for boys. handsome. that’s what i’m allowed to use. :)

emily, tally, leah
emily, tally & i. tally & i used to get mistaken for sisters. we were the same height, but she passed me up. but we still do look alike. :)

bike ride
this was the first time i rode my bike without training wheels. i was so excited. if you can’t tell. ha ha

cabin attire
this, was taken at our cabin. ha ha. we always were the prepared type. you know, in case the lake flooded our cabin. just in case.

happy monday! it’s a beautiful day, so how could you help but have a wonderful day?

farmers' market

today, my mother & i took a trip to our local farmers market.
the weather that was predicted was rain, but it turned out to be a lovely, spring-like sunny day.
after the weather we’ve been having lately, it felt so wonderful!
i love going to the farmer’s market. i love all the things to see & all the flowers for sale. we loaded up our whole car & brought home an abundance of flora.

one thing i’m so excited about that i got today, is this new ice cream i’ve found.
it’s called “so delicious sugar free” ice cream. can i just say yum?!
it really is so delicious. ha ha.

anywho, today has gotten off to a great start.

now it’s on to homework & gardening.
happy weekend & mother’s day!
