What do you do with your sister?

love her!
this is us at a HS volleyball game!
lock her out of the car, laugh, and
then let her in of course
hang out with Second cat...
the neighborhood cat that likes to come into our house
watch her dance

take pictures at the rest stop
and hug her goodbye!

Bits and Peace s

 Here are some silly updates! I will have to pass
on a couple of recipes to you soon, 
but today, oh today
I saved some pictures that sum up my days of recent:

Math Movie Mondays - the first went well!
We got a lot of math done...
even despite distractions

I blew up all these by myself at work no doubt!

Yes, I added crab to my mac and cheese...
and then I felt very fancy

I have biked every day to work save one....

<3 Him! Peter's first  day of school.

Math Movie Monday

 Actually it hasn't started yet...

We've decided that on Mondays we will correct math papers (Peter being a math guy and all) and watch a movie together. 

So until then Tux and I are just hanging out... 
But it will begin soon! Just waiting the excitement to start!

Office Projects

My office at work is messy and kind of bland. Now the messy part is totally and completely my doing, but the bland- not so much- its an office! What else should I expect? I thought to myself which of these problems can I fix with the most fun... and here you have it my solution to you guessed it the bland problem:

I found the idea here!

AND I thought I would share with you my TO DO schedule for the week. Instead of tons of scraps of paper (since I have enough of those taking up residence on my desk) reminding me of what I need to do at work, I made this little guy:

I printed a free printable from one of my favorite artists Arian and put one of those paper keepers that all the smart kids in high school used ;). Then using one of those pens made for the purpose of *gasp* overheads or white boards I write what my todos... and then erase it the next week.

Hopefully that's handy!

Ah ha!! I got you!!

I captured a few of my favorite moments the past two weeks. Unedited...

I LOVE mornings... not the get out of bed part
but the sun through the window part
i like our *together* time in the evenings

hilarious right?

2- my journal
3 - keys to the office
4 - ipod shuffle
5- cell phone

Sad To See You Go

Dear Summer,

I am not very happy you are going away. Your fading makes me sad. Please tell me about how fun fall could be too? I can barely remember if there is any fun in fall, because you have been incredible. These pictures remind me of you, even though they were taken in the spring at a location where it is always summertime.
I will miss you sweet summertime! Don't forget me! 
 <3 Steen

Want do you love about fall? Any fun ideas?
