project 365

Tim and I may give up soon, but for three weeks now we've done Project 365 (a popular idea among bloggers and flicker-ers to take a picture of ones life everyday for a year). We're not sharing this online. Just taking pictures and once a week I print them up for an album. We don't even actually have an album yet. Tim has a box. I have a mavora cubby. BUT we are taking notes and will put them in a real place soon I hope. So, if I tell you to smile it's because you're probably the picture of the day. And if you come over you can ask to see the album of the everyday shots of our life - like a reality show I think you'll like them.

life with kids

Tonight I found a package of fruit snacks in the bathroom so I hid in there and ate them.

the recipe killer

I've started ANOTHER project: The Recipe Killer. I'm insane, I know, but its been fun so far! Please check it out and share it with your friends. I'm hoping to get a whole new following of people I don't know! At church we're always swapping recipes or at least saying we should, so I am! Hope you like it.

mt rose 2011

Tim and I took Thursday off for a Mt Rose hike. Tim likes to get up there every year while I....well I'll hike it if it's needed.

The hike was a little more exciting this year as we had a pretty tight time limit. We dropped Grant at school and had to pick him up too. When we got to the top we knew a record descent was needed so we ran the 4+ miles down the mountain and out of the woods to our car in an hour and 25 minutes. We did the entire hike in 3 hours and 40 minutes (a typical time would be more like 5 hours) and that was with a lot more snow on the trail then we expected to run through in my tennis shoes. We arrived at the school 5 minutes late - but there were still 2 other kids in the room so we won! Thanks for taking me honey!

like strawberry shortcake - but not

Grant and I finally had a moment to make Tim's birthday cake - it's only a week late - I have a feeling he'll still like it. This morning we also signed the papers to sell our old house. It was a little anti-climactic seeing as we moved out over a year ago but it's very good news that we don't have a foreclosure or an empty house on our hands any more. Praise the Lord!

The Cake Boss on Rachel Ray made a strawberry short(layered)cake this week so I of course stole the idea and changed it (I'm just not that good at following directions and raspberries were on sale). I have a feeling my lemon-raspberry super-short(layered)cake will be just as fabulous!

Happy Birthday Timothy! I love you more everyday and look forward to the new chapter of non-home-ownership with you. ♥
