My mom has been "on vacation" the past 6 days so she came up to visit.  My dad and brother are doing a job in the area so we went to see their jobsite (they build electrical substations) while she was here.  All I had with me was my camera phone so I couldn't get any close-ups.

Why does the month of July drag on and on and on?  I feel the same way about January.

28 days until inservice starts.  I'm kind of not ready for school this year.  Good thing I have 28 days to get used to the idea.

It's way past my bedtime (1:08 am) and I'm still not sleepy.  I've spent the past few hours on Pinterest and looking at blogs.  Super good use of my time.  :s

I ran across this tonight on Pinterest.  You must read this post (unless you're offend by swear words....if so, skip it).  So funny.


Ohh...looks like tonight's episode of Teen Mom is replaying right now. Score! I spared my husband from that one tonight...totally made him sit through Pretty Little Liars though.

And that's about all I got.  I was planning to show you our super awesome volunteer pumpkin plant this week.  But, some jerkface weed-eated it Monday morning.  Sorry.  I know you were dying to see a picture of a pumpkin plant.

PS -  Happy Birthday ARod! Yeah, that was totally for my husband  ;o)

Pinterest love

Some things I've pinned...

Salted Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Bark

I don't know why I love that picture of the little ol' ladies so much but I do.  :o)

If you're not on Pinterest yet and would like to be, leave me your email address and I'll send you an invite.  You don't have to have an invite to join but it's quicker than requesting one from the site itself.

Some stuff

I posted this on my 101 blog but thought I'd post it here too.  One of my goals was to take pictures of the sunrise and sunset on one day.  Since I was awake bright and early on the 3rd I decided to go out and take some pics of the sunrise.


peeking through the trees


shadows :o)

We went to the Brookings Summer Arts Festival yesterday.  We baisically go for the food :o)  Dave ate shrimp, alligator (yuck), frog legs (gross), and a 10" Polish sausage.  I had a pork loin sandwich that was really good.  I had a huge dragonfly land on my shoulder while I was eating and the stupid thing would not get off me so for some reason I decided to brush it off with my sandwich.  I finished the sandwich anyway since it was so good.  Normally, knowing that a huge bug touched my food would gross me out and I wouldn't eat it.  We got some doughnuts as we left the park that were pretty good too.
We had an awesome lightning storm go through last night and I tried to get some pics. They're not the greatest since I have a really hard time keeping my hands still that long but I tried  ;o)

I watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation earlier today.  It was on TV and I just couldn't pass it up  ;o)

Hope ya all had a great weekend!
