Day 14-Friendship

Make new friends

But keep the old

One is silver

And the other’s gold

30 Day Challenge – Day 22

Picture Of You On This Day

Me, today

I just bought a new photo app for my phone, and I was playing with it a bit.  Not the world’s best pic of me, but not terrible either. 🙂

30 Day Challenge – Days 19 and 20

Something that made you smile today

  • Some of my favorite students winning awards at our underclassmen awards ceremony this morning.
  • A colleague telling me how happy she is that I was hired.
  • My wonderful, sweet, amazing husband telling me how happy he is to be with me. 🙂

A 10+ year old picture


Me and Jen with country singer Collin Raye at a concert in Myrtle Beach. I’m having trouble remembering what year this was, but the last time we went to Myrtle Beach was 2000, and I don’t think this was that year.

But here’s another one for good measure:


Me and Lisa, Alpha Delta Pi Spring Party, 1994 (I think).

What’s that? You want to see a pic of me in high school?

me at prom.jpg

That’s me going to the prom in 1990. (Yes, I cropped ex bf out of the photo…)

30 Day Challenge – Day…um…

Yeah, I kinda lost track there. I’m going to skip to Day 17.

A Childhood Picture


I was somewhere around 4-5 in this photo, which makes this the late 70s. That might be the longest my hair has ever been. 😉

When we were kids, people used to think my friend Jennifer and I were related. I didn’t get it then, but looking at this picture, I can kind of see what they were talking about!

30 Day Challenge – Day 11

Recent picture of yourself

Well, this is the most recent picture of myself I can find that I’m willing to post:


(taken by Jen, on her phone)

Is this thing on?

I know, it’s probably hard to remember…I retreated into my little hidey-hole, and I’ve barely even poked my head in this last little bit. And then when I do come around, I can barely think of anything that’s worth posting about. Hrm.

Well, I posted a few photos of OVFF 2009. And when I say “a few,” I really mean it. 😉 Good times were had. Maybe, if I get motivated, I’ll post some more thoughts on that…maybe. No promises.

The college semester is rapidly coming to a close, believe it or not. I was asked to teach again next semester, and I said yes, for several reasons:

1. As busy as I’ve been, I have really, really enjoyed teaching this class.

2. It’s kind of fun to share a workspace with Rand, even if just for a small amount of time.

3. I like being in the city regularly.

4. I figure that accepting the position now will give me a bit of breathing room as far as planning and such that I didn’t have for the current semester. (I’ve been pretty much flying by the seat of my pants, which lends itself to the overall overwhelmedness…)

I’m pretty sure that I had more that I wanted to add to this post, but I got distracted while posting it, and now I don’t remember…ah well. 😉 Happy weekend, everyone!

Photos being uploaded

I’ve stareted to upload photos. Vacation photos will be going into this set.

I also uploaded some calligraphy stuff I did yesterday. Enjoy!

Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it

Jen tagged me. I was at work when I saw the post. I took this with my phone.

photo meme

  1. Take a picture of yourself.. riiiiiight.. NOW!
  2. DO NOT change your clothes. DO NOT fix your hair.. Just take a picture.
  3. Post that picture with NO editing.
  4. Post these instructions with your picture.
  5. Tag 10 people to do this!

Ten? Really?


Okay. Jessica, Nicole, Linda, Caoimhe, Kelly, Julie Anne and, oh heck, whoever wants to play. Just leave me a comment if you do. 🙂

Photos posted

So, I finally got around to uploading some photos that have been hanging out on my camera for, oh, a month or so (as well as some recent ones). Will get to titles and descriptions soon. 😉


It’s the small things

I managed to upload some photos to flickr today, with titles and descriptions even. Whoo!

Here’s a little sample…all photos of things I’ve baked recently:
