smiling so hard it hurts.

This is metaphorical photo throw-up. I've let a busy, fun-filled week go past without any real update, so here's that.

On Sunday afternoon we hit Goodwill (new leather belt- $0.99) and explored the Children's Garden. Eighty-nine cent slushies and blue tongues for the win.

While we were wandering around Minnetrista (the "cultural center" of our town) the stage was just sitting there empty...and of course we couldn't pass up an opportunity like that.

Ummm, yes, that would be me, as Peeta, defending Katniss while she's in a tree. I'm not sure about the first one though. Maybe me as the tribute Peeta killed, and Shaina as Katniss, taking the bow and arrows from me?

I'm deathly afraid of koi...this picture took some guts.

On Monday we drove up to Indy with Shaina's family. Her mother had surgery (she's fine, but prayers are appreciated!) and we tagged along to spend the day shopping. We hit a billion stores, including Forever 21, Borders, and 2 different stores looking for TOMS. We finally found the right pair in the right color at Nordstrom's. No picture yet, but I can promise there will be some soon.

Have you seen the new program TOMS announced yesterday? You can check it out here. So far, I'm loving my shoes. I'd love to get a pair of their sunglasses, but $135 is just a wee bit pricey for me.

How's your summer break been going? Two more weeks until I leave.


  1. Sounds like some fun times, judging from the pictures. :) And ahh, I want some TOMS. Maybe for my birthday? :P

  2. love the pics! looks like you guys had fun :)

  3. these pictures rock. i love how you picked the letter Q. koi? really??? so you got sucked into the TOMS world, huh? i want some but they just seem to cost too much and I never have the money (or when i do i spend it on books.) but i do want some because of the good cause not because everyone has them. i know you're the same way. we are not group thinkers.

  4. Pretty ladies! Looks like ya'll have been having fun!<3 Love the pictures!

  5. Loved this post, your town looks so fun. I'm afraid we don't have a "cultural center" where we live:) Sounds like you have had a wonderful weekend. Two weeks? *gasp* I am so excited for you, you will still be blogging right? Great pics, your really good at capturing people, not many photographers can do that successfully. Loved it.


  6. TOMS are so pretty. My friend bought some knock-offs in a gorgeous coral shade, and I felt like telling her to return them, and buy the proper good charity TOMS.
    And your friends are officially awesome.

  7. Haha, it looks like you and your friends certainly know how to have a good time. :D I haven't read The Hunger Games yet, but I swear I will as soon as they are not all checked out at the library...

  8. Kendall- they most definitely were fun times :) Yes! TOMS are amazing.

    Jana- :)

    LF- it's my favorite letter :) I did :/ they're actually really amazing, and the only way I could justify buying them was because they are comfortable and a kid gets a pair too.

    Mary- thank you!

    PB&J- ehh, it's not that great, but we find ways to have fun :) I will still be blogging! I wouldn't leave it behind for the world :)

    Libby- I tried on a pair of Sketchers BOBS today, and while they are cheaper and a child in need gets a pair, they're not a comfy as the originals, and they're knock-offs. But you're right, the important part is that a child gets a pair of shoes.

    Ali- we missed you!

    Natalie- READ THEM READ THEM READ THEM. they are SO amazing.

  9. Love all the pictures! Especially the stage ones. Looks like y'all had a lot of fun. =)


go ahead. make my day.
