during the summer
the middle boys in the family
started saying GET SOME!
when they would do something cool or good
and eventually we all started saying it.
that and "yeah boiiii!"

seems like the hot boys of one direction picked up on it
...tonight let's GET SOME! and live while we're young....
some what?

i'm over kit kats.

yesterday my dad used fun-size kit kats to spell out
i love you
on my mom's side of the bed to surprise her
because she was saying how she was craving chocolate.
when she came in the room and saw the kit kats on her bed
she went over and messed them all up and said 
"i'm over kit kats!" 
without even noticing that it spelled out
i love you
and when my dad told her, they laughed about it...
HAHA - best story of the day

succs to succ.

housewarming present for seamus and liam:
succulents and beer.
considering that i have found 
all of the furniture and light fixtures
for the place
might as well add a woman's touch with some plant life, too

ps - eye spy with my little eye a mandible in one of these photos

the longest week

current wallpaper

half mast flag for 9-11
at my favorite color post office

printed this sketch on resume paper
and hung it on the inside of the medicine cabinet in the bathroom
with a shell magnet
that's how much i love it

watching hannah and emma in their ballet
with bell and chel
if i had a clear one of emma dancing, it would be here too

it was a long week.

spent sunday morning dripping sweat with ashley
at the rose bowl flea market
i went there thinking i was going to find a snazzy pitcher
if i was lucky enough to happen upon one
and instead i was drawn to everything religious
so many madonna & childs
so many rosaries and medals

got myself a tiny miraculous medal to sew onto a bracelet in the future
and a seafoam green rosary for my car
got liam a crucifix to wear
snapped a pic of this beautiful, wood-carved saint joseph

we won't get into how all the vendors at the flea market
are just talkin' out their ________
spewing bs about where their stuff is from 
how much it's worth
and why a mirrored vanity plate would ever be $100 is beyond me
but she could do $80 on it
how about i give you zero dollars and walk  away
win-win situation, liar

however, later we will get into furniture from the 1960s
big penchant for it at the mo

part of your popocorrrno!

a couple nights ago at 8:48pm
seamus texted me just the link to this youtube video
i'm still not entirely sure why
maybe because i like am enamored with mermaids,
maybe because it's a good song
(maybe he had to tie his shoe
or his thumbs fell off so he couldn't text 
or got caught up with a busy day
or maybe, you know, he just wanted to do that)
 i was on the edge of my seat waiting for it to turn into a rasta version
but, alas, it didn't.
nevertheless, i watched the whole thing

then at 9:28pm liam texted me the link to this video
they didn't plan it, they were just both thinking of me
and they both made me pretty happy

love love love

i love love love
this song
it makes me sad

So I think it's best
We both forget
Before we dwell on it
