great smoky mountains national park

This is the view from Clingman's Dome, the highest point on the Appalachian Trail.  I love that freaky cloud hovering above the mountains.

road trip

Nashville to Asheville 2008:  The first day of our 10 day road trip from DC to Nashville, TN to Asheville, NC and back.  Lots of driving.

"I shall call him Mini-Me"

My newest (and most portable) camera.  My trusty Canon died a few months ago, and although I am the proud owner of a sweet Nikon DSLR, it is too big to carry on a daily basis.  With a vacation coming up, I needed a pocket sized camera - made an emergency impulse shopping trip to Best Buy the day before we left and chose this little guy.  Works great.

We took her out to Bazin's on Church for an excellent birthday meal.

the magic bus

Larry couldn't resist feeding his coins into the magic bus that played music and was full of toys. He even danced to the music - and was quite disappointed when he didn't win a prize.

This is what I look like at the end of a work day.

These are the kind of notes that Larry and I leave for each other.

even more studying

If studying for LEED wasn't bad enough, I just got whacked with a "take home test" (complete with 80+ page reference guide) that I must pass for the Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation.

This parking garage is near my apartment. Would you park here? What if you knew that there was a 40' deep construction hole right next to it?

My office built this frog for the CANstruction competition - and we won!

Studying sucks. Snooze.

new orange! shoes

Love my new Keens! So comfortable! And orange! I don't actually wear them with the socks though - that was just for the pic. Could be an interesting look, though.
