how i know it's true love:

Greg put a picture of Ron Swanson as my phone background last night.

As Kerry Jackson once said, "If anything in the world could stop a comet, it would be Ron Swanson's mustache."

Let it be known that I'm not making any promises about posting - we can all see how well that went...

day one

This is what happens when you take a self-portrait in a dirty mirror.
In a dirty kitchen.


This is what happens when your super tall and handsome husband takes a picture of you... to swamp cooler controls.


This is what happens when that same husband tells you to "Hurry, do something cute."


I'm obviously not afraid of black mail.

Here's to hoping tomorrow doesn't bring more tornado-like winds so I can venture outside for photos...

The tights I'm wearing are actually a fairly bright raspberry color.

I'm wearing: Navy and white ruffle front shirt (The Limited), charcoal gray cardigan (Old Navy), brown "crocodile" belt (thrifted), gray pencil skirt (Banana Republic), raspberry tights (JC Penney), gray bow heels (Fergalicious).

30 for 30 picks

Here are my picks for the 30 for 30 challenge...


Why didn't I lay the shirts out so you could see what they really look like?.....
(If you guessed it's because none of them are ironed, you were right.)


The black and gray striped one is technically a vest.

why we love grandpas

Scene: Greg's parent's house last night. Commercial starring Fergie on the TV......

Papa Willis: "Who is this lady?"

Grandpa Willis: "She's a hot mama. She might even be a man."

Greg: [Speechless]

Wendy: "Uhhhh, her name is Fergie."

coming soon

After almost three years of going without, we're finally breaking down and getting the internet at our house. This is a big deal people. Now, instead of pretending to fold laundry while watching DVDs of The Office/30 Rock/Big Bang Theory, I will spend my time feeding my blog reading addiction. Or maybe, this here "blog" might see some more action.

In other news, I've signed up to participate in this self-inflicted insanity. So, if you don't want to see my face everyday from February 1st - March 2nd, I would suggest losing my blog address...

pray for us

For a church that advocates abstaining from the consumption of alcohol, we sure know how to lead a woman to drinking.* That's right, it's "church ball" season once again.

You may recall the excitement of last year. It is with great trepidation that I announce: Greg informed me that tonight's (first game of the season) game might be against that team. He also informed me that if it's true, he will be sitting this one out.

Mom will be proud; we've finally learned to avoid compromising situations. At least when they happen at church(?).....

*You realize this is extreme sarcasm, right?
