We’re celebrating!

There was SO much excitement today in The Office when I realized we were celebrating a special day tomorrow.  There was mostly excitement on my end when I wholeheartly agreed to make cupcakes for said day…although there was discussion that if I didn’t make treats there would BE treats at lunch.  Don’t worry co-workers, I may have outdid myself.

Any guesses as to what we are celebrating?

Yes, that's red, white and blue...and yes that's a flaming W on my shirt (GO WARRIORS!)

p.s. If you don’t love politics you probably won’t know.  Unless you know random facts about holidays that fall on September 17.

p.p.s. Baking may have been interrupted by dance parties to the like of Bon Iver (interpretive) and Foster the People (fist pumps)…I’m sure you expect nothing less from me.

Everything you have wanted to know

I know, it has been awhile.  Life happens and SO many things keep me busy.  Mostly things like the State Fair and work (LOTS of work) and friends.

There are a few things I have been promising, things you want to know: like my my mom’s lasagna recipe, which I will e-mail upon request. You CAN make it—I’m the expert at baking/cooking failures and I succeeded. *high fives all around!*

Other awesome things you want to know: how much I love indie music.  I’ve took the liberty to note some of my recent favorites NEW artists (yeah, I’m pulling the hipster card and liking bands before they get big) and list them out for you to get on your iPod or your next mixed CD.  You are welcome.

  • Mount Moriah
  • Caroline Smith and the Goodnight Sleeps
  • Howler
  • Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
  • Ryan Adams
Lastly, for everyone’s entertainment, and yes, this IS what we have been up to this summer:

Laura and I went on the Oregon Trail with Beth this summer! (credit to Laura for the photo)

In all seriousness we are PUMPED for Beth Moore study to start again.  Laura wrote up at little post on it you can see at the Women at Hope blog.  (There are also some other GREAT pictures of us with Beth!)
