Blue skidoo

"Chicken spaghetti—I’m making it this morning—causes thick, salty tears to form in my eyes. Then I find I’m crying over a chicken carcass boiling in a pot."

This is why I'm in love with Pioneer Woman.

Ticky Tacky

I don't know what has happened to me lately.
I think I might like it, but I am still undecided.

I love you, and you listen, but I don't think you understand. You laugh it off and it bothers me, because my mind is trying to do many things. I don't know what love means, or why I love you, really. But I don't want to question it, so I won't. There are more important things that need to be questioned.

I have also learned that I cannot penalize my mother for her ignorance.

I am fortunate, though, because now I realize the best gift I can give my future children is respect.

Snapshot Sunday

Today was Lilly's baptism. I was transporting rice in the passenger seat, so Jared sat in the back. Then he sat in the front and got rice juice all over his pants and it was really quite unfortunate.

Then we went to church and saw Lilly get water on her head.

Jared and I still don't understand how grown, educated adults attend mass and think it's factual/real instead of being exactly like Santa Claus. On the bright side, the church itself was exceptionally beautiful.

I really hope no one saw us do this.

Then we went to the hall. These chocolate lollipops made the cutest centerpieces.

Look and Lilly and her uncle! So adorable.

Then we left early because the entire party was like watching a soap opera. We went back to Jared's house where we acquired a child. Long story short: today is our 9 month anniversary so it was very clear to me that when this mouse fell out of Jared's closet, it symbolized the child I have been secretly carrying inside me throughout the duration of our relationship. Also, when we went to Virginia, we made up an imaginary friend named Willard, who is a rat that loves Jesus, pecan pie, and Internet fetish forums. So...I guess what I'm trying to say is that we're insane and Jared is really good at sewing.

Mother and baby.

Proud father and son.

See ya never.

While I've been gone I have:
-had several emotional breakdowns
-switched my major from elementary education to psychology
-applied for a new job; my interview is scheduled soon
-attended a Halloween party, where Jared & I were pirates
-vacuumed my room 7 times

Here are some pictures:

And last but not least, here's a video summary of my existence:

No Snapshot Sunday today. Why does no one ever want to do anything when I don't work late? :(
