Catch Up

This photo challenge is taking much longer than anticipated because of the break I gave myself over Thanksgiving. So today is a catch up day. Ready?

DAY SIX: A PHOTO THAT MAKES YOU LAUGH


This is the first time that Lisa and I gave Valentino a bath. He looked like a wet rat and I find it hilarious.

DAY SEVEN: A PHOTO OF SOMEONE YOU LOVE


There are many people I love. But I had to go with my Grandma. She is simply amazing and I love her so much. And every time I talk to her on the phone she asks me about my love life. And she makes amazing egg salad sandwiches. 

DAY EIGHT: A PHOTO OF YOUR FAVORITE BAND/MUSICIAN


Carrie Underwood. Favorite. 

DAY NINE: A PHOTO OF YOUR FAMILY


That's everyone. L to R: John Herndon, Me, Robert, Dad, Amy (John's fiancee), John, Mom, Kathrene Herndon, Ange, Joey (Ange's boyfriend who probably shouldn't technically be here but it's the best I can do...). I love my family. I love the extensions our family is gaining. Kathrene chose a wonderful husband, and John has chosen a wonderful almost-wife. 

Last one.
DAY TEN: A PHOTO OF YOU AS A BABY


I don't have any pictures of me on my computer of when I was a little baby, but I was pretty young here ... I'd guess around 4. Angenette is on the left, and I'm holding my doll Melody. I had an abnormally large head as a child.

ME

DAY FIVE: A PHOTO OF YOU


I'm really proud of this picture because I made those sunglasses for a Jersey Shore party. 136 rhinestones. Go me.

Vacay-What?

DAY FOUR: A PHOTO OF THE LAST PLACE YOU WENT ON HOLIDAY


I don't take vacations anymore. When we were younger our family would go on trips, usually to Sacramento to see my mother's family, or Dodger games, and once we went on a huge and wonderful trip around the country in a van ... but since I've been in college, vacations have been few and far between, or non-existent. When I take time off it's to go home: Los Osos. And I'm not complaining one bit. I love Los Osos. I love visiting home, driving the familiar streets, reminiscing as I pass places I used to work, hate, or hang out at. This particular picture is from "the top of the world," otherwise known as Cabrillo Estates. It's a very high point in the town, and on a clear day it's beautiful. Everyone loves it. And I'm going back there TOMORROW!

Happy happy joy joy

DAY THREE: A PHOTO THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY


This was last Christmas. Thanks to Angenette, our family tries to take a walk down to the bay on Christmas morning. When we were younger it was always really fun to wake up really early on Christmas morning and it was hard to wait for Grandma and Aunt Janet to come over so we could open presents and get the festivities started ... but the past few years it's been different. Most of us have wanted to sleep for just five more minutes! And a walk early in the morning isn't something that makes us excited, but I'm glad we did it. Since Kathrene got married in June and now lives an hour away from home, and John is getting married in March, I would be shocked out of my pants if the Christmas morning walk happened again. This was also the day before Kathrene got engaged. So, I think it's the last family picture we have when it was just the original 7 of us together, before anyone was seriously committed to another person for the rest of his/her life. Oh yeah, and then there's Ange's dog, Coco. I don't really count her.

Last Thanksgiving, when I cooked!

I totally missed yesterday's post for the photo challenge. Oh well, I'm making up for it now!

DAY TWO: A PHOTO OF YOURSELF A YEAR AGO


Kathrene and I made Thanksgiving dinner last year, under the close supervision of our Aunt Janet, of course. This was the part of the process where I was finely chopping the garlic to go in the cranberry sauce. But don't worry, it wasn't only cranberries and garlic, that would be gross. There was also basil, onions, carrots, celery .... and it was NOT delicious. It was supposed to be a topping for the turkey, and it looked really pretty, but that was about it.

Photo Challenge

Wow, it's been forever since I've opened my computer. Therefore, no blogging lately. I tried blogging from my Droid2 a few times, but I can't use much punctuation or capitalization, so I stopped. I also couldn't upload any pictures very easily. But, I'm back on Max and decided to do something other than posting about my feelings. Happy? =)  Many people I know have started doing this photo challenge. I thought I would join in. I probably won't do 30 consecutive days, but it will be fun when I have the time.

DAY ONE: YOUR FACEBOOK PROFILE PHOTO


I am an avid Harry Potter fan. I love the books and the movies. So when Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I came out this week, I was ecstatic. And, rather than fight the crowds and experience sleep deprivation by seeing it at 12:01am on Friday, I opted to go with Robert and several of his friends. Well, they dressed up. Robert was Severus Snape, Randall was Dumbledore, Cory was a student with a disgusting wig, Cami was Hermione, and there was Viktor Krum and Katie Bell, also. Normally I wouldn't mind dressing up, but I just wanted to be comfortable, so I decided to just have Robert draw a lightening bolt on my forehead. Before the movie I made him go to Wal Mart with me so I could get some snacks, and like the wonderful brother he is, he obliged me. Whilst wearing his costume. It was hilarious. So many stares!! And the movie was fabulous. Absolutely fabulous!!

Whine and Cheese

$eriou$ i$$ue$ in $o many area$. Can you guess what the main one is? Ugh. I hate being this dependent.

I watched Sweet November the other night ... oh m gosh, it was perfectly terrible. I sobbed my poor little heart out, and enjoyed every minute of it.

My throat is closing up; it's that feeling of a tennis ball in there, and my voice is going away. Plus I have a cough and my nose is stuffed up. Wonderful.

My car is pretty much out of gas.

I'm eating everything in sight.

My eyes are still infected.

the world series

i love baseball. i love playing baseball and watching baseball. i love the way a leather glove smells. i love hot dogs. i love the seventh inning stretch. i love sliding into home. i love the dodgers.

and i hate the giants. i really do. and i am having a physical reaction to the fact that they won the world series. that and the traffic back down to oc put me in a bad bad mood. and i know that a baseball game is stupid, but i so dont care. i would have rather any team beat the gianyts tonight. seriously. but no, the giants won. ugh.
