in which i receive plentiful updates from florida

a few months ago my dad finally, after months of begging, added on unlimited text messaging to my parents' family plan. until this momentous date, my mother could not send or receive text messages. thank goodness he saw the light.

the above is one of the many photos/updates i've received from my mom in her week-long vacation with my dad in disneyworld. AMAZING.

brief book notes

reading A Moveable Feast has me falling fast and hard for hemingway all over again. the man had style. (you still have time - pick up the new edition and meet with us...)

while i'm surprised by it, it looks like i haven't raved about enough. they have hundreds of independent booksellers looking to sell you the book you want in the edition that you want. if you've never been there, try it. quick shipping, good prices and you don't have to shop at a giant like amazon.

i think i may be intrigued enough by the synopsis that i'll have to pick up a copy of this book. those kooky canadians, they get me every time.

bars and books are reading The Dud Avocado for the coming month - while i'm not a huge fan of the huge crowd, i think i'm going to read along with them. if you're more patient than i and can wait your turn, i recommend you go - it is a great crowd and a book i've been meaning to read for some time.

BSE (best show ever)

this is it - this show cannot be missed.

tucker is one of the most talented people in this life that i call a friend and it is about damn time we all get to ooh and aah over him.

meet clementine.

she is the tiniest of puppies and will be moving in with us next weekend.

that makes this coming week the longest of weeks.

okay, okay, i don't have many photos from the wedding.

this sums it up pretty well - i felt like cinderella all night in that dress.

for once, not food (drinks)

so, i'll have some wedding photos soon - not quite yet. i promise i'll post at least a couple. it was an amazing celebration of my sister and her husband. it's wonderful to finally have a brother!

in the meantime, please fall in love with sara - i have. then, make her watermelon lime agua fresca. if you're unsure about this delicious beverage, come over - i have a pitcher in the fridge.

also, i have a new favorite tea.
