I have been reading, "Lost: The Search for 6 of 6 Million" and it has put me in a pensive mood. I may not have always been a photographer, but I have always loved looking at photos. Especially old photos and family pictures. I remember seeing old black and whites of my grandma in her swimming suit at Soltaire and pictures of my mom as a little girl with a pixie hair cut. It is strange to see your grandma as a 17 year-old in a bikini swimming on the beach. You realize people have lives outside of you. I wanted to know the stories behind the pictures. Who were these people before I ever knew them?
Thinking of memories, photos, stories and histories I decided to pull out my old photos and came across this one of me. I think I'm in 2nd grade. Usually I'm smiling in pictures and I think that is why I like this one so much. I like that I'm smirking. This wasn't a school picture, so I think my teacher must have taken this for some reason. My hair is curled though, so I must have known I was going to have my picture taken. Curly hair was reserved for picture day.
I don't even really remember myself at this age. I remember thinking my teacher didn't like me (Mrs Thompson) and I remember having a a time machine in class that took us back to Greek Mythology. I remember I was Pershephone (I didn't remember the name, just the myth. Scott helped me out). I remember Mrs. Thompson was from Hawaii and made us brownies and sometimes yelled at the class. Maybe this picture was from 1st grade. If so, I remember my teacher made me stand in the corner because I got up out of my seat to ask if I could go to the bathroom. Actually, it wasn't my regular teacher. It was another teacher who must have been substituting. I wish I could remember more.

{It's Back}

and like always, I'm super stressed about it.
I'm always worried about what Ben is up to, who is telling the truth? is Kate going to be okay? is Jack going to be okay? do I like Jack or Sawyer better for Kate? who is going to die? what happened to Locke? does Sun seem a little suspicious? who is that lady with the cape--did we see her before? Yes, I'm sure we did, but I can't remember!

It is really a love/hate thing Lost and I have going. If only I had the willpower to watch the full season in one grand DVD showing.

I don't.

Thanks ABC for making me nervous.

{Heart Attack Grill}

This news report made me want to go on an immediate detox program. It grossed me out, but maybe some think yum.
I was never much of a fast food fan (the nurse uniform was, umm, interesting?)

I finally convinced Whitney to join the blogging community. I think she is excited. You can check out her blog and cupcakes here. Now if I could only convince Marianne (so not going to happen, I know) I will consider it a coup.

{I'm a Follower}

I joined Facebook. As if 3 blogs and a website wasn't enough to maintain. I was convinced though that all of the cool people are doing it and I really, really want to be cool. I'm still trying to figure it out and I feel lame because I only have 3 friends. In all reality it kind of seems like an alternative stalking method, but hey, I'm cool with that.
Anyway, I need friends so I can feel special and wanted. So, if you have facebook let me know so I can invite you and join the club. That is assuming you want me to join your club. Late at night I get a little insecure.

{Winter~Who Knew?}

I love snowshoeing. It is my new favorite. I love Scott for my snowshoe Christmas present. I love snow pants. I love winter hiking. I love long johns.
Who knew winter could be so fun?

{Big Fish}

Scott and I were completely enchanted when we first saw this film in the theater. I remember our neighbors in the theater weren't so impressed..."well that was a stretch."

We couldn't have disagreed more. This film is lovely on so many levels and one of my favorite Tim Burton's movies. I strongly recommend watching it; whether for the first time or revisiting it as we did last week.

{No Time to Say Hello! Goodbye!}

I'm feeling just the same as the white rabbit right now as I'm trying to prepare for 2 wedding expos, 4 weddings and an onslaught of Dr. appointments, all within 8 days. I'm too tired (stressed) to find an applicable picture, but since I'm a fan of pictures, here is one of the River Walk in San Antonio. It looks misleadingly tranquil. There were lots and lots of people there the day we went.
That's kind of how I feel, actually. Tranquil on the outside and a bit of crazy on the inside (the picture does apply!) Who would have thought January would be so busy? I'm counting my blessings though. It is all for good things.
