classy eats

aren't these the prettiest damn plates you ever seen?
happy birthday to me!

chapel of the cross

i was in chapel hill this weekend, and out of the 30 pictures i took, i got one good one. i will learn how to take arty looking pictures. damn it.

i'm looking for a summer photography class, preferably an affordable one. any suggestions? i do feel kind of weird about wanting to get better at something some of my friends are really very good at. i don't want anyone to think i'm trying to compete with them. which i realize is an odd thing to worry about. and probably makes me sound like an asshole. i guess being accused, at one point, of being single-handedly responsible for bringing down a local children's music program and the international company it represents went to my head. go figure.

mr. a - z

our "row 29" seats turned into "row 5 bitches!" seats.

what an awesome freakin show!

(and yes, that's pretty much what he looks like in real life)

made a new friend:
(okay, not really, but his music is hilarious and funk-tastic)

i took one picture with my camera phone. i'll upload THAT awesomeness tomorrow.

p.s. our plants look like crap

it's true. gotta love april for 30+ degree temperature swings - and my antigreen thumb. (dare i call it my "wilted-and-keeled-over thumb?" just give me time.)

it was so pretty before.

and what the hell is that? mold?

check out this little eco-system. this is what remains of the basil. lame.

at least belle is cute.

jason mraz


in case you missed the memo, he's coming to wait chapel in winston wednesday night.

yeah, you could say i'm stoked. 27 hours and counting.

think spring

spring. what's not to love?

long dog walks
watching belle pass out after said walks
daylight past 7:30p
the smell of hose water
watching erin's garden grow
summer plans
baseball games we forget to attend
cooking out
leaving the windows open
blustery weather
warm rain
the way the sunlight changes color
countdown to tomato sandwiches
driving home from work with all the windows down
budding trees
cheapest-ever gas and energy bills
more natural light in the house
perfect snuggling temperature
seasonal affective disorder takes an up-turn
more wedding gigs
birds in the morning
