funny moment

I was at the post office today mailing my visa application when the clerk sees that the address is The Royal Thai Embassy.

"Are you Thai?"


Ah, no. I'm the whitest white girl you can imagine!

Spring Break Project

This china cabinet is older than me, and it was in every house I lived in as I grew up. I have "fond" memories of dusting it when I was little! So ever since its been mine, I have wanted to paint it. I painted my kitchen cabinets white soon after I moved in, and later bought a white kitchen table. So, this needed to happen! It was a pain to paint but it is so worth it! I love how it turned out. I don't know if you can tell from the pictures but I painted the back wall of the cabinet yellow to match the kitchen walls. And I changed the cabinet pulls to something a little more modern. Yay!

Spring Break!

Oh my...I am SO thankful for Spring Break! Melody is here and we are having such a great time! We have been able to do stuff with Kelly and just hang out. We've been pretty busy, actually, trying to fit in all the things we want to do. Tonight we are going to get pizza and watch "Saving Sarah Cain." I'm so thankful for good friends. Here's what happens when you don't have a fourth person to take the pictures!

Holding my breath

I feel like I'm holding my breath lately, just waiting for Spring Break! School has been a bit on the stressful side. This is one of those times I wish I could go into details and let it all out on the blog. But I don't need a lawsuit either! Anyway, I am simply looking forward to a week with little to do and a chance to recoup from a couple of crazy weeks.

You know, I have a tendency to think in metaphors sometimes. Its really a strange characteristic, I think. Does anyone else do this? For example, the whole poem I wrote about my tulips was obviously a metaphor for something else. And I was thinking about my current feelings about school, I thought of a roller coaster. Some people get on a roller coaster and scream, throw their hands in the air, and thrill with each scary turn. Other people grip the bar as hard as they can, take a deep breath, and grit their teeth. Right now, I'm definitely the latter. I am getting through this time and bearing it, but I can't wait for it to be over! Just being honest.

Time for me to get busy with my chores, I have a guest coming for Spring Break!
