easily entertained

this made my freaking day. courtesy of megan e. haney. i literally laughed out loud for a solid three minutes every time i looked at this. peace out, fever and fatigue. i'm feeling better. thanks for all the well wishes, homies. i actually ate some food today. HELL YES. and as a short sidenote, if i was f*cking ben affleck, i'd broadcast it on the internet, too. : )

i have no excuses

i haven't been blogging. um, i'm sorry. but i'm still here, and i am enjoying everyone else's adventures in traveling, pregnancy, school, etc! so i'm home today. sick off my ASS. coughing sneezing fever freezing sweating headache. ugh. but i've been asleep most of the day, so i am probably getting better, thank GOD. i've got some things to catch you up on, so please look forward to pictures from the following events: trip to mtn. home to see my daddy, wedding shower i helped throw for my sweetheart eleise (first shower i've ever thrown!), and general around-the-house ridiculousness. miss you guys. hope everyone's doing well. : )

i am not sad...

good love is on the way

ten days in, and i may be back to normal... mostly, anyway. february is turning into a month upon which i can depend for a new outlook. mama cass was right; the darkest hour is just before dawn. and i think i see the sun on the horizon, so for now, i'm in good shape. : )
today is tatum's birthday, and i love this pic of her and slade. they look so pretty, don't they? *sigh* big love for roommates, big love for birthdays, and HUGE love for tater.
so all the girls came to arkansas this weekend, and i'm so sorry that i didn't get to see you guys for a little longer, but it was quality time to be sure. and i'll see you all for st. patrick's, right? can't wait, can't wait, can't wait. i'll be all yours then, bitches. love love love.
but the BIG news this weekend is that meggers came to town for a sister-filled weekend, and it was just what the doctor ordered. 2008 has been nothing short of completely turbulent for us both and neither has ever needed our best friend more. thanks for visiting, sweetheart. no raindrops or teardrops when you are near.
hope everyone had a good weekend, and i'll leave you with my favorite quote right now, from edith wharton: "there are two ways of spreading light---to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it."
