trek through the desert

We climbed the dunes at Jockey's Ridge to watch the kites and hang gliders, and to sweat our asses off.

The crowning touch was the plush Nemo hanging from the living room ceiling - interior decorating at its finest.

handmade soaps

Why buy mass-produced store brands when you can get handmade? I got these handmade soaps and lip balms (and free samples) from Bathing In Luxury. If you're nice to me, maybe I'll share!

knee vs. concrete

The concrete won.

bad news

So, my arthrogram didn't show anything wrong, but they still want to do surgery on my hip. Let me get this straight: I took a 3 1/2" needle to my hip for NOTHING and they still want to cut on me? WTF?

newseum apartment

We set up the model apartment at the new Residences at the Newseum today - it looks fantastic. I wish I could live there. (The photography used throughout the unit is from the Markings series.)

"Mr. Messy" thinks my wallet's lack of organization is completely unacceptable. Ironic, isn't it? Who cares if all my bills don't face the same direction? Or even fit in my wallet?

drop necklace

I got this cool pendant from P1 Unless Otherwise Noted - it's red glass on one side and gray on the other.

korean stamps

Another great thing about Etsy - getting stuff from artists all over the world. This envelope contained earrings by Rae's Creations.

look into the eyeball

I went to the eye doctor today - look how big my pupil is!
(Incidentally, "Look into the Eyeball" is the title of a David Byrne song that randomly and inexplicably found its way onto my mp3 player. Hmm...)

azalea garden

It was a perfect spring day, so we took a Sunday stroll through the Brighton Azalea Garden. I've been wanting to go back there since I was a kid and finally twisted Larry's arm into going with me.
Him: This is going to be a girl activity.
Me: Taking a walk outside is a girl activity?
Him: Well, you did watch the de la Hoya fight last night. That's a boy activity, so I guess I owe you.
Him: Ohhhh...I thought azaleas were flowers. You didn't tell me they were BUSHES!
Me: Well, they're bushes, with flowers. Did you honestly think I'd bring you to look at a flower garden?
Him: I didn't know!
Honestly, who doesn't know what azaleas are anyway?
