a few embarrassing things that has happened recently

Mostly just 2 major things that Jeremy has made fun of me lately...i thought they were pretty funny too so i thought i would share.

  1. i wake up picking Jeremys nose.  i'm not sure how or why, but he was awake and after a couple of seconds i woke up too eyes wide open and quickly removed finger from nose.
  2. the other week we went into this nice store just browsing.  I came across this really cool standing mirror that has 2 doors that fold over it like a cabinet.  I call Jeremy over too look at it.  It is $4,000! It's not leaning against the wall or anything, just standing up balanced.  As he reaches for it it starts to fall backwards... in my head i think "be careful it's just balanced...don't knock it's $4,000!!!" but all that came out was me breathing really load and fast...almost hyperventilating.  I was speechless and while i was breathing i remember thinking "WHY CAN'T YOU SAY ANYTHING!"  Jeremy catches it (which i think it was strapped in and couldn't fall anyway, but i didn't know that) and we walk away quickly laughing and i'm crying from laughing and embarrassed and Jeremy keeps making fun of me.  I don't know....maybe you had to be there. 
  3. last saturday i had to work late to help tear down a wedding.  It was almost midnight and i was driving back to the studio.  I wasn't entirely sure how to get back so i was using my GPS.  After awhile i knew where i was and knew how to get back.  I was stopped at a red light and it was dead quiet.  I forgot the GPS was on. The woman spoke and it freaked me out and i jumped in my seat.  My heart was pounding so fast.  Then 2 minutes later she did it again.  I got scared again.  It's pretty bad when she scares you twice back to back. 
  4. Oh...earlier that day i was dressed up nice to help with the wedding and thought i was done for the day.  I come home change into my pj's and eat dinner.  I get a phone call asking if i can help tear down the wedding.  Sure.  For some reason i thought since the wedding would be over i could just throw on some jeans and a t-shirt and my jacket.  The wedding party will be gone or leaving while i'm there.  Well i get there and the party is still going on.  I'm told that i can go ahead and go in and start taking things down...the party is almost done and will be leaving soon.  Dang it!  I don't want to walk in there looking like a homeless person.  Or looking like i'm crashing the party.  I learned my lesson. 
  5. Another voice scaring story...i must be a jumpy person.  I was jogging the other day listening to the 80's radio station on Pandora.  Ziva is running next to me.  Song starts...a little music...MICHAEL JACKSONS BREATHY SCREAM NOISES! in my left ear....i jump/jog/turn around really fast thinking that someone was right behind me.  no one.  just the person coming towards me looking at me funny. 
There's probably other funny/embarrassing stories but i just can't think of any now. 

around these parts...

The past couple of weeks have been pretty busy.  I've been really busy interning for the florist.  Later today i will help set up for a wedding.  Earlier this week was our 2 year Anniversary and we ate at an Irish pub and went to see Moonrise Kingdom.  Both really good.  The weather has been very nice so we've done several trips to the dog park and took our bikes out.  We got some new binoculars and have been spying sightseeing.  Lots of Fleetwood Mac and Cat Stevens on the record player.  Jogging in the rain.  Supernatural marathon last night. Someone in our building telling me i look like i could be a movie star. Not wanting to drive in the truck because there was a spider in there.  A couple antique store runs. And just life happening.  Next weekend Jeremy's sister and her husband are visiting and doing the Warrior Dash with us.

(i made the small toss bouquet on the right)

And last but not least....Ziva.


The other week i took home a bunch of seeded eucalyptus stems that was about to be thrown out.  I decided that i could make a garland or a wreath or both out of it.  This past Monday I made a garland.  It feels a little Christmas-y with it up, but i'm ok with that!  When or if i get tired of the garland maybe i'll make a wreath.  I was kinda planning on making a fall wreath this year with all the different colored berries and leaves and things.  Hopefully i won't miss it.

This was all that was left.

i love this man. 
i'm thankful for his support and love and always making me laugh

slight hint of fall...

this past weekend we had our first few days of cool weather. we took our bikes out for a spin and a few trips to the dog park.  it's already warmed up a little, but the mornings and evenings still have a nice crisp feeling.  i think after this hot summer we're all ready for fall to come.  it's my favorite time of year! plus we'll be having some visitors stop in over the next couple months.


today is one of those days you just don't forget.  i still remember it like it was last week.  i was in the 7th grade and i didn't know about it till my last class of the day, history.  my teacher started talking about some tragedy that i thought, and i think a few others thought too, happened years ago.  it took me awhile to realize that it happened just earlier that day.  how could it?  i didn't think stuff like that could still be going on.  as my teacher went on i still couldn't believe it.  since it was the end of the day everyone in school had already heard about it.  it seemed much quieter walking in the halls.  i remember it was raining because i was wearing tights and they got wet getting into our car...i guess wet tights were annoying.  it wasn't till i got home and saw it on our tv just how awful and devastating it was.  my brothers wife (then girlfriend) was living in NY at the time.  it was her birthday.  i remember he was very worried about her.  even though it's been 11 years i still remember some of the news clips and pictures taken.  so many lives lost.  so many changed.  our thoughts and prayers go out to those who lost a loved one on this day.

an arrangement from home and a few boutonnieres

While i was home in GA i picked some flowers in my moms garden to make a small arrangement...


i made these a few weeks ago just playing around.  i picked whatever wasn't dead from the drought outside our building and was excited to find the lambs ear hidden.

back from GA

We got back from GA last Saturday.  When we were almost home we were on the look out for tornadoes.  Well Jeremy was, i was driving at the time.  It was a little scary.  But i might have secretly wanted to see one way off in the distance.  We had a wonderful time home, as usual.  Went by fast and there never seemed to be enough hours in the day or enough dinners/lunches in the day to meet up with friends and family.  A few things that went down...

Came home with 9 new plants from my mom,
30+ mosquito bites, and 5 new albums.

Saw some friends - good ones, old ones and new ones.

Went to see a movie.  Played games.

Took walks every morning.  Only jogged once.

Went through an old house (Jeremy's parents may buy)

Ziva played with small dogs and big dogs.  Played in fenced in yards and even went to the dog park.

Picked flowers for the dinner table and had some
home cooked meals.

Got offered a piano for $10.  Sadly, it didn't come home with us.

Told old stories and new ones too.

Donuts for breakfast almost everyday.

It rained, it poured, the old man snored.

a few pictures...

yea....that's how it usually goes.  Two of my best friends, Lauren and Nikki.
It had been over a year since all 3 of us had been together.
