Ode To My Blow Dryer

I suffered a tragedy today. my blow dryer has officially died. At the worst possible time; at 7:40 am when i had wet hair and needed to be to work at 8:00 am. We have had a great go, my blow dryer and me. he didn't last incredibly long, but what can i say? he was cheap. I have enjoyed his retractable cord and although the "cord" button broke, i still found a way to make it work. Up until now he has been very reliable and trustworthy. thanks for the past 3 years.

i will miss you blow dryer!

The Ballroom Dance Kid

Due to Tamra's question regarding the "old dance medals" comment from the previous post, I figured I had better just clear things up now. From about the third grade to the seventh grade, I was a ballroom dancer.

The Cumberbun. My accessory of choice.

I was quite the waltz and quickstepper, but I also took a close second to Shakira with my hip shaking cha-cha!

Valentines Day

Well I have finally updated my blog. I have several new posts, so scroll down if you would like to see them all. We took some cheesey pictures of us today for V-day. Here we are just before leaving for church.

Mark got me this cute new headband!

An Olympic Theme Night!

As everyone knows, the Olympics have begun. To kick them off right, we had an awesome theme night with Briant and Camille. We did an international night and watched the opening ceremonies. it was wonderful. here is the night!

Briant and I getting very excited about our delicious spread of joy.

Mark turned some of his old dance medals into some Olympic medals for us to wear!
Briant getting ready to have some fun in his fun shirt

The food! we had mini doughnuts to represent Holland and/or Germany. (during my research I found claims that both originated this delectable dessert)

Pot stickers to represent China

mini Bruschetta to represent Italy!

Quesadillas to represent Mexico/Spain!

and mini dogs to represent the U.S.A.!

all the flags we could round up - U.S., Mexico, and China

and to top the night off, Mark made a DUTCH oven cobbler
It was a great night! we had great food and enjoyed the opening ceremonies!


Mark and I have been several times to ski this season. However, we have not taken very good pictures. so here are the ones we do have!
