It's supposed to be a picture from your travels, but since we haven't been anywhere in a while ... here's a way you can travel ... by bike!


...i know, i know ... you've seen this picture before, but I love it!

This one is different ... Faith is having a daily link up and today is a video!  You have to go watch the video at her site too ... so funny!

I was trying to take a video of Audrey making her little squealing sound ... and yeah ... you see who wants attention ALL the time in our house!

Forgotten Language

Once I spoke the language of the flowers,
Once I understood each word the caterpillar said,

Once I smiled in secret at the gossip of the starlings,
And shared a conversation with the housefly in my bed.

Once I heard and answered all the questions of the crickets,

And joined the crying of each falling dying flake of snow,

Once I spoke the language of the flowers. . . .

How did it go?
How did it go?

"Forgotten Language" by Shel Silverstein

Picnic Shots

We had our first ever Microbiology and Immunology Departmental Picnic this past Friday.  It was super hot, but I think people had fun!  It's sad though that I've worked here for two years, and I still don't know everyone in the department.  Just shows how much us lab rats stick to our own labs!

Here are some of my favorite shots from the picnic --
Leah strutting her stuff, haha.  Andrew bought her the cutest hat!

Everybody loved meeting my girls!
I am seriously in love with this picture of Leah!
I love getting that candid shot that just turns out perfectly!

I love how this picture just seems so fatherly ... but I wish I knew how to make the guy in the white shirt go away.  He's kinda distracting me.

Thanks for visiting!
Sweet Shot Day

Sunday about Me

I found this fun new blog ... Just Me who hosts Just Me Sunday.  The rules are very simple ... post a picture of you errr well, me!

This is my view this Sunday morning.  We are missing church because of our car.  It started making this horrible clacking sound on Friday.  Andrew took it in and the guy said the left wheel barring was very very loose, but they can't fix it till Monday morning.  The wheel barring is the bolt that holds the wheel to the car chase ... se we aren't driving because I'm afraid the entire wheel will fall off!

So instead, I'm updating here!  Usually I just do photography on here, but I thought I'd introduce myself a bit more with Keely from Mann Land 5 's Getting to Know You questions.

Getting to know YOU

1.If you had 5000.00 to spend on plastic surgery what would you have done?
Liposuction ... maybe.  If you were to ask my husband he would say boob job, haha

2. Do you watch Soap operas and if so what is your favorite and why?
No ... can't really get into the 'drama' of soap operas.  I remember my mom used to watch Days of our Lives, like all the time!

3. Favorite clothing brand?
ummmm ... the one that fits?  I like Lane Bryant, but I don't like going in there ... you know, self esteem issues and stuff.  I usually shop at places like Kohls and T.J. Maxx

4. An afternoon shopping spree at your favorite store or maid service for a year?
Maid service for a year.  I think the last time my house (like whole house) was super clean was when my mother in law was staying with us, and I went into labor with my youngest.  She was so nervous / excited she cleaned the entire house!

5. would you ever vajazzle?
I'm pretty sure I know what that means ... I mean ... I think?  If so, my answer is no.

6. Favorite Disney Princess?
I love Belle!  She's like me ... loves to read and stuff.  If I was a princess (growing up) I'd for sure be Belle!

7. Last movie that made you bawl your eyes out?
Oh my gosh, um almost every movie I watch.  I think the last one was ... Taken with Liam Neison.  Liam's daughter gets abducted by sex slaves and he goes on this killing spree to find them and get her back.  The end made me cry.  I won't tell ... you know, in case you wanna watch it.  Freaking awesome!  

8. Have you ever broken any bones and if so what?
Yes.  I broke my ankle on Christmas eve when I was in fourth grade.  What's that ... 8?  Well, for some reason I was still wearing footie pajamas.  My sister and I were being wild kids when I twisted my ankle.  My mom heard a pop, and yeah ... I crawled all day Christmas day and we went to the doctor's the next day.  I got to wear a pink cast and be the library assistant during P.E.

Thanks for coming by!  I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday ... and no one's wheel falls off their cars, haha.

Alone before and after

I picked this picture to show today with Mama Kat's Writers Workshop.  She had a prompt to write a poem on a picture, so I went through my pictures for one that inspired me.  I found this picture below and edited it.  If you would like to read the poem I wrote on it ... click the title Alone
