Shared from my baby bro and my bossum buddy, this guy speaks both to my freedom thinking heart and my gilly dancing legs.

work collections.

The tiger points sheet may need an introduction. At work before my kids leave they have to fill one of these sheets out asking about what they did during the day. They get points for being good and participating in things I plan. Well, this is from Viola. You may remember her from earlier. This is real life proof of how funny/sweet/endearing she is.

okay, okay.

I'm sure nobody thinks this is as funny/endearing as I do, but this girl constantly makes me laugh. She leaves me notes all the time saying that she thinks my hair looks nice, she cries when her mom says she can't go to late night with me, and she asks me at least once a day to sit by her and watch while she plays zombie games on the computer.

four corners glory.

Ah, the glories of living in an area where tastes of desert, mountains, forests, or flat horizon views are within driving distance.

I am SUCH a graceful eater.

Alena captures really attractive photos of me so I thought I'd share them. Don't judge.

It was a glorious day of phone calling, celebrating, and meeting kind, civically engaged New Mexicans.  I'm equally relieved and excited for the next four years.

Ah, it's the life.

Took my kiddies to the local roller rink and had a fabulous time. I taught them how to skate backward AND how much fun a conga line can be on skates. :)

Ze weekend.

I had a glorious weekend with some much missed friends that included ice cream, delicious food, hikes, hot springs, Mumford and Sons, and lots and lots of catching up. I wonder all the time how I would even survive here in NM without my little pockets of home that come and visit me. I have the best, most kindest people in my life. 

BFF glamour shots.

Hot damn, I've got some swoon-worthy friends.

 1. I voted early!!! Whoop whoop!!
 2. Taking my kiddies on a hike is not complete until they pose for a hamball photo.
 3. And, a well stocked fridge is a very welcomed side effect of having visitors. THANKS LANIE!

Sometimes, when you eat salads all the time, and they're good and simple, you get used to them. They fill your belly and you're content. But then one day something comes along and all the sudden you're eating salads with avocado and bacon and pears and peaches and hot sauce and cucumbers and tomatoes. And they're delicious and you lick your plate clean. This is the only way I know to explain how lovely it was having a friend again to take photos with. Also, these photos are so damn hip, my brain hurts. I apologize.
